they were ordered to report were sent
out Friday. Attached to these cards
were others which the drafted man

that when a divinity student or a reg

C,.")00 Coaches 'eedcd for Army.
CHICAGO, Sept. 13. It will take
all of the 1,500 tourist sleeping cars
available and 5,000 coaches to trans
port the 194.S00 men who constitute
40 per cent of the citizen-soldiers se
lected for military service, and mho
mill travel from their homes to the
sixteen military cantonments of the
Government in the five-day period
beginning next Wednesdaf. Publica
tion Is prohibited of any routes or
schedules of military movements, but
it can be said that the Government
and the railroads have co-operated in
making every possible provision for
the safe, comfortable and prompt
transportation of the citizen-soldiers.
Generally speaking, the tourist
sleeping cars will be used by those
located farthest from the canton
ments, while the day coaches will be
used for the shorter trips. All ar
rangements are made for stops for
meals en route, wherever necessary.
Unlike movements of the regulars
or national guards, the citizen-soldiers
will not be accompanied by officers.
The various examining boards
throughout the country have notified
each man the exact date he is to
travel, where he is to take a train,
the number of the train and its time
of departure. These boards have also
designated one man who will be in
charge of each lot of men entraining
at each place during the five-day
period. The number of men to as
semble daily at each place of entrain-
ment ranges from two to several hun-
The men from the smaller places
will be carried on regular trains. Ex-

soldiers in France, and fostering other
forms of publicity, so that American
war activities may be properly ap

committee is evenly divided between
Americans and British.
The first occasion for which the
committee furnished American speak
ers was American Day at Blackpool,
the great workers' pleasure resort of
the North. Dr. Wallace Butterick of
the General Education Board; J. Cal

Bacheller were the principal Ameri
can speakers. The streets were lined

reception and thousands of holiday

What do jou know about your Bible
or the Christian Teligion? It is not
enough for educated men to have
learned a few Bible stories in child
hood, to have acquired a few trite
quotations, or to depend on fragments
gleaned from the weekly sermon. The
educated man who ,is going to merit a
position' of leadership in the most
vital movements of his Community
must have some adequate knowledge
of the Bible and of religion. This re
quires study under competent teach
ers. The Bible College of Missouri
offers jou your opportunity. See an
