WORLD HAS ENDED Mil.ions Now Living Will Never Die FREE LECTURE BY J.F.Rutherford of New York. SaKCMMC to Pastor Russell as President of the Inter national Bible Students' Association. William T. Ellis, the Religious Rambler, one o? America's most reliable authorities on current religious events, writing of conditions as they exist in England today, say* : "I find all men profoundly concerned over present conditions?Nothing is too venerable or sacred to escape the challenge of the war?The very existence of God has been widely called in question?The Christian Church is at her crisis? It is frankly admitted that sectarianism must go into war's scrap heap?The soldiers, who, of course, will dominate during the next generation do not care an empty cartridge's worth for church and denominational distinctions. "Frankly. I am writing these lines as a warning to the church people of America." Mr. Ellis quotes Canon MacNutt as saying, "A man is not a Christian because he proves himself to be a hero; and there are more heroes than saints in the army by a long way." Thousands of America's sons have gone to the battlefields. Many may die there. Mr. Rutherford's lecture gives conclusive proof of future blessings for them, whether they die Chris tians or not. The simple truth about these great questions is admitted to be the need of the world today. Because Mr. Rutherford's lecture contains these simple truths, the International Bible Students of Washington have arranged for him to deliver his great lecture free to the public at POLI'S Theater 3 P.

ARMY DOCTORS' RANK BASE OF SENATE PLEA Senator Robert L.

Senator Owen cited Instances of capable physicians who had gone Into the service on lieutenants' com missions, but who could not get a proper hearing: before a superior of ficer merely because they had not the same military rank.
