"The friendliest man, In St Louis" Is
coming to the University of Missouri.
Dr. W. J. Williamson, pastor of the
Third Baptist Church of that city, Is
to speak here at Assembly Thursday
morning, February 20.
In the last three years Dr. William
son has been asked perhaps twenty
times to come to Columbia to speak to
the students of the University, but as
he probably la one of the busiest men
as well as the friendliest man, he
could not accept the Invitation at any
time before. Through the agency of
J. 8. Moore, general secretary of the
Y. M. C A., and E. W. Stephens, Doc
tor Williamson was secured.
"There probably is no other preach
er In America." said Mr. Moore, "who
is so much in demand or public ad
dresses for civic, philanthropic and
charitable organizations."
Doctor Williamson, was the subject
of a recent article in Collier's Weekly
In the series of "Man-to-Man Preach
ers." by Petef rJJark Macfarlane.
Doctor Williamson la a native Mis-
sourian, a graduate ot William Jewell
College. He has been in the pastorate
at St Louis for about fifteen years,
being called there from a smaller
church In this state. He has been
called many times to larger churches
in the East with increases in salary as
inducements. Recently he refused' a
call to the largest Baptist Church in
New York City, the church that Rocke
feller attends.
Doctor Williamson has the largest
crowds athls services ef any" church
In his city. Every other line of
church activity is proportionately de
veloped. He is Just beginning to build
up an institutional department of his
church for the Sunday
social center work.
School and
Doctor Williamson has won his Utle
as the friendliest man by his sympathy
and friendship with men and women
of all classes. He has not yet an
nounced the subject of his address to
the Assembly here.

port the bill which Is now before con
gress providing for the protection ot

a great lover of birds, says that the.
people should do all that they can te;
secure the passage ot the bill. She
would have people write to -the seaa-v
tors from their states and the repre
sentatives from their districts to call
attention to the importance of the
measure and to let the legislators
know that they are in favor ot sueh
legislation that they love1 birds aad
want them protected.
"Everybody can. help in this matter,"
said Miss Denny, "It they only will
write. And the most important thing
is that they write at obco. This is i
matter that certainly concerns every
body; but the trouble is that so many
persons have oaly a passive .Interest
