CHURCHES WILL HOLD MEMORIAL SERVICES FOR LIEUT. ELDER AND PRIVATE WEITMYER
CONVENTIONS SHOULD BE HELD DECLARES DR. CLARK Noted C. E. Leader Says Meetings Are Helpful; Endeavor Notes During the past few months many leaders of religious organizations have questioned the advisability of holding large conventions and ral lies in war time. The Rev. F. E. Clark, D. D., of Boston, gives a reply to the question. Ho says: "Like everything else, our conventions and union rallies are affected by the world war. New problems, new questions of duty have arisen. Many of our leaders have gone to the front. Shall we have our conventions and rallies as formerly? Most decidedly, I think we should. To be sure, our great international convention, due in the year when our country entered the war, was postponed, but that was because it involved such long distance travel when the roads were peculiarly con gested. A convention that draws its delegates from Maine to California, and from Manitoba to Texas, is very different from a state or county con vention or a local union meeting. By all means keep up these gath erings. They were never so much needed as now. Religion, patriotism, personal devotion to every good cause call for such meetings as never be fore in the history of Christian En deavor. No other cause brings the young people of all denominations together as does Christian Endeav or, and there never was a year of all the 1913 years of the Christian era when union work and union prayer and a united inspiration were so necessary as now. Moreover, we must look forward to the future. Please God. the war will not last forever. Someday the boys will come marching home, and it would be sad indeed if they found the union disorganized, the meetings suspended, and our united work at a low ebb. "Brothers, you who like myself, must do our patriotic work at home; sisters, you who must come to the front for the first time and take the place of absent ones; intermediates and juniors and all young people, wo have now one of our greatest op portunities. While the war lasts, God calls us as never before In our united capacity as Endeavorers, to show our patriotism, and to keep the live coals burning bright on the altars of devotion. "Our soldier comrades will win at the front. We must win in the tight behind the trenches, and there is no greater help to this victory for God and the right, for home and native land, than live conventions and well-planned, well-attended ral lies. You cannot better serve the Master than putting brains and heart into such meetings." GEORGE E. TROUP George E. Troup is one of the pop , ular Endeavor leaders of the West * End. He i 3 a livewiro in the Sixth Street United Brethren Christian Endeavor society and also knows how to lead a large chorus. C. E. NOTES Everybody here get busy, We will tell you why.

"Manual of Physical Training," by W. G. Anderson, M. D., and William L. Anderson, is a new book just suit ed to the needs of those who wish to introduce the novelty of physical training in their society work. The societies of Kansis City, Mo., have adopted the practice of singing one stanza of "The Star Spangled Banner" at 7.15 every Sunday even ing. High school intermediates in Illi nois have organized a state union to promote their work. FIVE POINTS ON THE TOPIC Topic: "Training Conscience and Trained Conscience." Prov. 20:27; Ps. 51:1-13. "Conscience is like a policeman that arrests us when we do what it says is wrong. But we must sup ply it with knowledge of good and evil." "What most people need is not a 'better' conscience, but the grace to obey its dictates." "Christian Endeavor's greatest need is not better organization, moro efficient human leadership, etc., but a 'conscience void of offense toward God and man." "The preacher should be a trainer of conscience as his Master was." "When we live close to God in prayer, conscience becomes tender and we seek to do His will at all times." Memorial Service For Lieut. Elder Tomorrow In connection with the morning worship at Paxton Presbyterian Church to-morrow, there will be a memorial service for Lieutenant James Gait Elder, who was killed recently in the Battle of the Marne. Lieutenant Elder was a member of ' the church, Sunday school and C. E. Society and took an active part in church work. The music and other services will be in keeping with the occasion.

Some things were Been and heard and read by a popular minister recently. The Rev. Charles M. Sheldon, pastor of the Congregational Church, Topeka, Kan., says n his church calendar: A cheerful invalid, although few of his lifelong friends have been in to see him since he went to the hos pital several weeks ago. Don't send him a flower. Take it yourself. One man in a street car asked an other "When are you coming out to see me?" "Oh, I don't know. I don't have time to see any one." "If I owed you a dollar you would send me a statement first of the month, wouldn't you?" "I suppose I should." These men are old friends. I know they are, for I know them, and I sat behind them. Wonder how long it is since either wrote the other a letter of friendship or rung his door bell. "Death is a great adventure, but none need go unconvinced that there is an issue to it. The man of faith may face it as Columbus faced his first voyage from the shores of Spain. What lies across the sea, he cannot tell; but his insight into the clear meanings of present facts may persuade him beyond doubt that the sea has another shore." (From "As surance of Immortality," by Fosdlck. A good book for all who view the empty chair and wonder). I saw a man on' Monday, a busi nessman, making money with all his might. Saturday he was still at it. That man is here to-day, perhaps. If he works as hard for the Lord as he worked all last week for him self, he will be a tired man to-night. I read about a man who fell going up hill. But the story said he didn't fall nor hit so hard as another man who fell going the other way. Saw the workmen in our church handling big timbers carefully so as not to mar the furniture. I like to believe that the majority of work ers, both physical and mental, tlnd much pleasure in doing their work right, aside from the wages they get for doing it. Have you seen a good many peo ple bearing the burdens of life bravely and quietly. They are begin ning to understand there are "others." Your lad is not the only one. You are touching elbows with a world grief. Misery does not "love company," but rightly borne it learns how to share the load with others. Selfish sorrow is as selfish as selfish pleasure. ■ / Jgm THE REV. N. W. SAGER The Rev. Mr. Sager has been ac tive in church work since his con version at 14 years of age.
