GREAT MEMORIAL CHURCH WILL.
BE ERECTED IN DEVASTATED
Brussels To Be Center of Large Enter
prise On the Part of South
Nashville, Tenn.-A great Methodist
Chorea, erected and maintained by the
Methodist Episcopal Church, South,
will be erected amid the ruins of
Ypres, in Belgium. This was stated
by Dr. W. B. Beauchamp, director
general 'of the Centenary Commission,
who, with Bishop James Atkins, the
bishop in charge of European mission
fields, just returned from Belgium.
The city of Ypres, terribly devas
tated, will not be rebuilt in its entirety.
The once magnificent Cloth Hall, the
finest in the world, the Cathedral, the
town hall, the churches, and other
large ruins will be left as a perpetual
On these the city mayor has caused
signs to be erected, reading: "This
is holy ground. No stone of this fab
ric may be taken away. It is a heri
tage for all civilized peoples."
A City of Memorials.
Ypres ls a city of memorials. The
British government has selected a site
and will erect a great museum as a
monument to her fallen heroes.
Similar buildings .will be built by
Canada, New Zealand, Australia and
In the midst of these memorials the
Southern Methodist Church will be
erected. It will contain a library,
reading room and social equipment,
i? addj^Jgn to its auditorium and
class rooms. *SfS^,?ir^?iii^^^f?*^~
"Ypres'-will always be a mecca for
travelers," said Dr. Beauchamp.
"Thousands and millions will flock to
that battlefield. Our Church will not
only minister to the people of Ypres
and the surrounding territory, but it
will also serve these visitors." \?r
f* " Great Plant In Brussels.
The Methodists have also purchased
a great building in Brussels, which
will be their headquarters for Europe.
It will contain offices, an auditorium,
reading and lecture rooms, a publish
ing plant and social equipment.
The general secretaries of the two
Protestant bodies of Belgium, the
State Church and the free Church, will
have offices in this building, thus
making it the Protestant center of
Southern Methodists haye also pur
chased a half interest in the Protest
ant hospitals of Brussels. It will be
enlarged and its capacity will be
doubled. ? ;
Relief Stations Established.
Dr. Beauchamp reported that thou
sands of children will freeze to death
this winter, because the Germans
flooded the mines and filled them with
concrete, thus making it impossible
for the people to obtain fuel.
"Children with their mothers," said
Dr. Beauchamp, "are now living in
the abandoned trenches and dug-outs
left by the enemy."
In order to cope with the situation
the Methodists have arranged to open
relief stations at Ypres, St. Quentin,
Montdidier, Belgrade and other points.
A full contingent of physicians,
nurses, directors and social workers
will be sent abroad as soon as they
can be found.
The Church has a fund of $5,000,000
for European construction work. This
will be spent in Servia, France, Bel
gium, Poland and Bohemia.
