"A man may bo down, but he's never out," the Salvation Ar.-.iy slogan
furnished the theme for the official Home Service Fund Campaign poster de
signed by Frederick DuncanK the noted artist. From this he has evolved
striking artistic creation, typifying the hand of the Salvation Army reaching
out to rescue, those who are enshrouded in the clouds of poverty and vice.
Sulvation Army lass Is the principal figure, and the scarlet lining of her cloak.

good things in Texas to eat and
more clever people to visit than any
place on earth, and as for talking

pleasures and not say anything about
it. I will in June go on an -extended
visit to Dallas, Arlington, 'Ft

Chairman E. C. Bracken is hardly
taking time to eat or sleep the last
ten days, be is so interested iu the
success of the campaign. He will
have some war tanks on exhibition
here today and tomorrow. One of
the exciting events of the day will
be when the tank runs over and de
molishes an automobile on the street.
The automobile is furnished by an
enterprising dealer. Of coarse it
will be one that is worn out and of
no use to the owner, but will ans
wer the purpose of advertising the
tank and the dealers', business just
aa well as a uw one would.

ment signed, It would have been
much easier to have got all nations
to have signed six months ago than
now. " Every day it is delayed just
gives them moro time to formulate
more schemes to defeat justice.,
