MAKES PUBLIC STATEMENT
Recognizes Effilelent Services by Sal.
vation Army but Calls Attention to
Breach of Understanding.
Taking notice that the Salvation
Army continues to solicit funds in a
way which, it is alleged, they proni
ised to discontinue in a former cam
paign. the Ministerial Union of Lau
rens ]ijas issued the following state
ment to the public:
One of tle most eflicient agencies
which ministered to 'both physical and
spiritual needs of the American sol
dier (uring the recent World War, was
the Salvation Army, aildl none are
more willing to recognize that ser
vice than the undersigned.
Since the armistice was signed,
three 'eairs ago, this organization has
thirough its representatives, made two
"dirives" for large amounts in Lau
.renst and last Spring it accredited
repiresentative was accorded a publi
hearing, the notice was given in the
pilpits at the morning service and
all other services were called off for
that gathering which was held in the
First Methodist church.
'11011 that occasion, 01ur ilpeople er'e
solicited for the suppiort of their work
located in (Greenville with the distinct
understanding that the Salvation
Army would discontinue its forlmer
.practice of solicitation by the Lassie
with the tambourine. Maly of Oiu'
people subscribed aind we know that
these subscriptions we'e, ill at least
large part, paid.
