Pointing out that, when the homes of a nation become things to be tam pered with at will, legall.'or other wise, such a nation was headed for moral decay and that it was the be ginning of civilization's decline. Bishop James Wise, speaking Sunday at the city auditorium, cited the, divorce problem in the United States and de clared that this country came within the classification. The address was the climax of the pageant. "The Rights of a Child." It was intended to bring to grown-ups the necessity of providing for little ones who are without fathers and mothers pn account of disrupted do mestic ties. To further educational, missionary and extension work, all Protestant churches in the city, for the first tinvs in history, united Sunday in the open ing of the big inter-church movement at the city auditorium. Dr. I B. Bowers, president of the Kansas Wesleyan university, told the audience that the world program would do much to bring about closer co-operation of the denominations. That the campaign would be suc cessful was indicated by the fact that the First Baptist church Sunday after noon raised half of its quota of $60. 000. Reports will be made dally to AV., J. Herwig. county chairman. The first reports of all denominations will be given out at a dinnerto be held this evening at the Chamber of Commerce.

In a report giving the results of the recent army recruiting drive. Sat urday, "a Topeka recruiting officer" was quoted as indicating that the reg ular army did not really want the drive to be a success, giving "compul sory training'" as his reason. As Capt. John P.

It's raining today, and if I were a kid and lived back home in Carthage, Mo., I would call in Fred Beneke and Jack Piatt and we would go down in the basement by the furnace and play show; And we would decide before making the arrangements for the stage equip ment and how much we'd charge to get a seat or stand up, and I believe we would make the admission five pins and two more to sit down on a soap box or a broken rocker; And then we'd hike up in the att c and take possession of the old clothes and funny hats and other things that might be used by the actors and then we'd get a clean sheet and a long strin? and some safety pins and stretch the string across the basement and hang the sheet upon the string so it would slide; And then we would begin rehearsals for the big show, and because it was held in my house I was allowed to be leading man and everything'd go fine until I saw that Fred Beneke was going to make a bigger hit than the leading man because he stuffed a' big pniow in my rather s pants; And so I got peeved and the show broke up, but it didn't matter, because the sun came out and we all went swimming, and I guess that will be about all. x.

I a pi BABY cannot live without it. Where milk is scarce, infant mortality runs as high as 50 per cent. MILK HELPS YOUR CHILDREN GROW. Besides being a good all-around food milk has something special in it that makes children grow. This something is found in some other foods, but not in such large amounts as in milk. Give your boys and girls milk for their chance to grow. MILK HELPS YOUR CHILDREN KEEP WELL. There are always very many sick children in cities and in countries where milk is scarce. When milk prices go up and mothers begin to economize on milk more children become sick. Do not let your children run this risk. Give them pure, clean milk and help them to grow up strong and well and win in their fight against disease. Save on other things if you must, but not on milk, your child's best food.
