Sunday afternoon at 5.30 a "ffet to

goodly number of sailors and soldiers

Youne Men's Christian Association
building on Broadway. There war mu
sic by Swahn's orchestra and singing
of popular son(?s, and a heart to heart
talk by Rev. C. H R'cketts which was
greatly enjoyed by all.
At the conclusion of the talk, the
women of the Broadway Consvega
tional church served, without cost, i
lunch to all present, and this was. of
course, much appreciated by the man
agement of the association and also by
those present to partook.
Mr. Ricketts among other things
"I want to speak to you today from
a text of four words, 'stretch forth
hine hand.' This poor man to whom
Jesus spoke these words was a crip
pie. and therefore handicapped. He
saw women and even boys doing
things that lis could not do, and he
felt somewhat discouraged. One might
have told him about the bone and the
muscles of his - hand, but that would
not interest him; all he wanted was to
obtain the power to use his withered
hand and Jesus gave him the power.
tHe gained the use of his hand by
using .it: it has ever been so; to him
that hath it shall be given. Michael
Angelo stretched forth his hand and
we are charmed with his handfwork in
St. Peters; Raphael stretched forth his
hand and we marvel at his art. Na- j
tionally, we stretched forth our hand;
we stood, insult- upon insult from Ger
many, and after , these insults became
unbearable, we stretched -forth our
hand, and it has reached far across
the sec, and the enemy recognizes the
power of that hand. After Jesus lived
a life of sacrifice, his hands were
stretched out on the cross, and we are
enjoying today the great benefits of
the redemption he effected for us. Tou
men have your temptations and you,
with us need to stretch forth your
hands to wage warfare against them;
we need to stretch forth our hand's
against the liquor evil and kindred
evils. You need to reach out your
hand to take the hand of the Christ
whose great heart yearn for your welfare.''
This initial meeting of this kind
was successful- and similar meetings
will be held on coming Sundays. Next
Sunday the. women of Christ Episco
pal church will eerve the lunch.

ERANDEGEE STIRS UP
SENATE OVER U-BOATS
Reads Philadelphia Editorial Asking
Why No Warnings Given to Vessels
(Special to TKe Bulletin.)
Washington, June 9. Senatof Bran
degee roused hot debate in the senate
when he had read into th record an
editorial from the Philadelphia Public
Ledger stating that the navy depart
ment had been warned two weeks ago
of thp presence of German submarines
off the coast by incoming vessels. The
editorial asked where were our patrol
boats and why were outgoing ships not
warned of suspected danger. Senator
Erandegee in presenting the editorial
said he thought the questions should
be answered unless against public in
terest to do so. Senator Lewis of II
Iinois retorted vehemently accusing
senators who had criticised adminis
tration as being largely responsible
for invasion of German submarines
off the coast. Senator Lodge replied
that boasts of the number of troops to
be sent to France had" more to do
with it. The debate waxed hot for
considerable time, although Senator
Brandegce took no part after calling
attention of the senate to the lack of
notice given after the navy department
had apparently feen warned of sub
marines off the coast.
FREIGHT WRECK HAD
LINE ENTIRELY BLOCKED
Tieup Sunday on' Norwich and Worces

All traffic, railroad and trolley, was
blocked all day Sunday on the Nor

use the stretch of track as usual.
One of the cars in a north .bound
freight train jumped the track for
some unknown reason and was dragged
along for a considerable distance be
fore the train could be brought to a
stop. No one was injured.
The roadbed was ripped up so ef
fectually that there was a. complete
stoppage, of all traffic over the line,
until the wrecker from Midway could
be brought here to clear up the damage.
No Boston Sunday morning papers
could reach the city. Passengers were
sent along on the Jewett City and

registration was lf8. All were exam
ined by physicians and out of the 172
infante only four abnormal cases were

EQUALIZING CLASS 1
MEN IN. DISTRICTS
Is Rsason Why Norwich Will Not Send
Men in Next Call.
Teh reason for Norwich's not having
to send any men away in the next
draft is that , the government is en
deavoring to equalize the number of
Class 1 men in all districts m the state
Some districts have hundreds of men
left in Class 1 while others have only
a few. A certan figure has been set
in the new system and all boards
which hare men more than this figure
will be obliged to send men while
those with a smaller number of men
are not required to do so. In this way
it will greatly reduce the number of
men in the large cities but will not
take all the men from any one district.

led to rumors of a Submarine scare
off the port of New London, but this
could not be confirmed.
