the struggling little band in America,
jwlll be active workers in presenting
(the Army's 1920 appeal for support of
fits Home Service Fund to be made
-throughout the country May 10 to 20.
Theie two workers have seen the
organization grow from the veriest
Jtjro In the field of service and relief
rta 1880 to the powerful influence that
ft Is today. They have never, left its
service and entertain no thought of
doing so. They want te help raise the
$10,000,000 necessary te carry the work
through another year.
Their enthusiasm is boundless, as It
well may be in people who have seen
nch an inauspicious beginning in the
tec of Jeering and antagonistic crowds
result in the universal respect and love
beld for the Salvation Army today.
The difference in the figure of the com

their tambourines in the old days dem
onstrates concretely the difference that
40 years have brought
Louis Petain is particularly Jubilant
over the transformation that he has
seen and remarks eplgrammatlcally :
"You can't buy confidence, sonny.
You've got to earn it"

"Ash Barrel Jimmy," vthe Army's
first American ' convert, died a few
years ago. He was sentenced to serve
six months with the Army by an exas
perated judge who had given up hope
of reforming the drunken "remittance
man." Jimmy decided voluntarily to
make it a life sentence and stayed
with the organization until his death.
He attained the rank of captain aid
served others as the Salvationists be
fore had served him.

" one resounding whack for
which she spent a night in Jail,
resolute black eyed girl changed
the police classification of Salva-

That was twenty-two years
ago, and the black eyes have
grown more gentle in years of
service for the poor since those
battling days, but they still twin
kle when the story is told.
It was Mrs. Adam Glfford, wife
of the colonel now cammanding
the1 New England forces of the
Salvation Army, who wielded the
drumstick and struck defiance at
' the Pennsylvania blue coated
policeman of the town where she
and her husband were then stationed.
Irate citizens had complained bitter
ly of the Salvation Army and its street
corner meetings and musical services,
but particularly of the bass drums of
the band. Night after night the drums

I feel the same emotions in listening to the
I New Edison as I feel in listening to the
living singer?"

were startlingly vivid. .
) "I could have sworn there was a living
anger standing behind me," said Dr. W.
V. Bingham, Director of the Department
of Applied Psychology, Carnegie Institute
of Technology.
"I felt the presence of a living sfnger.
The accompaniment seemed by a separate
instrument," reported Prof. C. H. Farns
worth, Director of the Department of Music,
Teachers' College, Columbia University.
' "Tba music filled my mind with thoughts
of peace and beauty," said Wilson Follett,

under arrest and escorted by a crowd
of amused but sympathetic onlookers
to the patrol wagon and thence to the
local Jail, where she spent the night
The case was taken before the su
preme court of the state, where even
tually the contenUoa of the "Army"
was sustained.
Following the decision the entire
corps, led by Colonel Glfford, marched
to the city hall to demand the drums
that had been confiscated by the po
lice.' Twenty-eight of the offending
"prisoners" were released in the cus
tody of the corps. From that date to
the present none of the meetings of
the Salvation Army has been disturbed
by the police. Furthermore, the prece
dent established has been maintained
in nearly every state In the Union. -
