A number of distinguished church men will be present at this the 92nd .session and the reason for Barbour jvllle as a choice of meeting place is to celebrate the putting over of the jt'nlon College Endowment, which was done largely thru the initiative of those who will attend. We are sure that, Irrespective of church affiliation, our people will ex tend a hearty welcome to these men and women, among them noted bishops of .the r great Methodist Church who have so steadfastly held aloft the banner of Christ, at home and abroad. They s.tand for the observance of the Ten Commandments, which are God's moral law and the beautiful Ideals of Christian love and charity, marvelously exemplified In the life and death of Him who came to save a fallen humanity. Under these Ideals there is no place for aught but Christian broth erhood as proved by tho wonder of those, who while outside the fold, J were forced to remark, "See how these Christians love one another." j The Board of Education, Ken tucky Conference.
