American Legion for an international
air disarmament conference, accord
msr to an announcement made at
legion national headquarters here to
day. The replies came from United
States senators, representatives, gov
ernors, editors, college presidents and
other prominent citizens.
Thirty disapproved the proposal for
the conference, sixteen were unde
cided and twenty-three gave qualified
approval. Those favoring the pro
posal included twenty-two United
States .senators, ninety-three repre
sentatives, fifteen governors, 216
newspaper editors, forty-four college
presidents and eighty-two other
l-rominent citizens, the legion stated.
Organized world war Veterans of
England. France, Belgium and Rur
mania will bring pressure upon their
governments to support the air' dis
armament conference, according to
word brought back to legion head
quarters by the delegation of legion
naires 'which attended the interna
tional conference of the Interallied
Veterans’ Federation in Brussels.
The legion, it was said, considers
this decision an unusual victory for
the campaign, since the organization
has charged that France has led all
nations of Europe in the race for su
premacy of the air and that England
is her nearest competitor.
The legion also announced that it
had received recently communications
from William Jennings Bryan and
Samuel Gompers. president of the
American Federation of Labor, ex
pressing approval of the legion's cam
paign for air disarmament.

LOUISVILLE. Ky., September 18.—
An addition to Louisville's educa
tional facilities, the McGarvey Bible
College, which is to be devoted to the
training of preachers, missionaries
and church workers, and which will
seek to combat the “destructive
skepticism" which “now operates
chiefly in the name of so-called evo
lution.” was announced today. The
Rev. Dr. 11. F. Luntz is president of
the new institution, which is sched
uled to open October 2 with a faculty
of four or five members and prepared
to give courses leading to degrees of
bachelor of divinity and bachelor of
arts and also shorter English courses.
Opening of the new school repre
sents an attempt of certain leaders of
the Disciples of Christ to provide a
theological training institution "an- '
compromisingly committed to the ;
Bible as infallible and final." as op- :
posed to those denominational insti- !
tutions which openly espouse or pro
fess to be neutral in so far as the |
teaching of the theory of evolution, in 1
contrast to the Scripture account of •
creation, is concerned, it was said. I
