Cottle Says Former members of the Wom an’s Army Corps, who were honor ably discharged from the service, may now reenlist according to an announcement yesterday afternoon by Lieut. N. G.

The reenlisted WAC will be em ployed primarily for duty in the government hospitals, and to sup plement help, now used by the gov ernment at Army separation cen ters, to meet the present shortage of skilled personnel. The former WAC may reenlist with their old grades, provided they have ::ot yet reached their 51st birthdays. Wave Rights They most waive all rights to dis charge because of marital status, or age, and must possess a skill, usable to the War department.

STUDY CHRIST JESUS AT SUNDAY SERVICES “Christ Jesus” was the subject of the Lesson-Sermon in all Christian Science churches and societies on Sunday, March 3. The Golden Text was from Jere miah 23: 5, 6. “Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgement and justice in the earth. . . And this is his name whereby he shall be called, The Lord Our Righteousness.” Among the citations cobnprising the Lesson-Sermon were the fol lowing from the Bible: “And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: And the spir it of the Lord shall rest upon him, and the spirit of wisdom and un derstanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowl edge and the fear of the Lord; And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins” (Isaiah 11: 1, 2, 5). The Lesson-Sermon also included the following passages from the Christian Science textbook, “Sci ence and Health with Key to the Scriptures” by Mary Baker Eddy:. “Christ expresses God’s spiritual eternal nature. The name is sy nonymous with Messiah, and al ludes to the spiritlality which is taught, illustrated, and demonstrat ed in the life of which Christ Jesus was the embodiment. The advent of Jesus of Nazareth mark ed the first century of the Christian era, but the Christ is without be ginning of years or end of days” (Page 333).
