HISTORY OF INTER* C HI R( H WORLD MOVEMENT Historically tin* Interehurch World Movement of North A morion is the logi cal outgrowth of a tendency of the na tional hoards in cadi denomination to form working alliances among them selves, in which each hoard shall lire serve its identity and control ils onw personnel and treasury. In former times, the home mission society, the foreign mission society, the church extension society and the var ious philanthropic and eleemosynary agencies of any denomination conduct ed their affairs independently of one another. Kadi surveyed its own re stricted territory, prepared a budget of money and workers for its own pur poses and made its own appeal to its constituency for support. This could only mean Mint those ngein-ft's were more or less ill eompe I it ion with one another. Unit there was waste and duplication of work and money, and that among them all some work was neglected and some donorai mitional resources were entirely over looked. Because of their specialized training, the leaders of each agency re garded themselves as peculiarly fitted for their tasks and jealously regarded attempts at outside* interference. After decades of such haphazard methods, the leaders of one denomina tion deckled upon an experiment. They thought it would he possible for tin* agencies for get together for a common study of all the opportunities and re sources of their brotherhood, to make out a unilicl budget of urn and money. It was made clear that each constitil cut board should preserve complet** autonomy. When the hoard representatives met they found it possible to eliminate a great amount of organization expenses. They ultimately worked out a budget and plan of campaign that wa sa’is factory to all. This resulted in the famous "Men and Millions Movement'' of the Disciples of Christ, which brought in what was then considered the staggering sum of $0,.'i00.000 for a five-yea rprogratn. The members of the communion were so pleased with this business like method of conductitig ; affairs that they contributed even more | generously than hud been expected. The Intcrchureb World Movement is simply a plan to do interdenomina tionally what the forward movements have done within tjie various com nnmions. It means that every denomi national budget will lie made in the light of world needs instead of ill tile semi-obscurity of incomplete informa tion. it means that one denomination will not he in wasteful competition with another, because all the fellow ships will have worked out their pio-j grains together. The movement lias nothing to do with organic church union or matters of creed or doctrine. Kadi constituent unit present’s complete autonomy and is hound only so far as it wishes to be hound. Aii illustration of one thing the move mi‘iit can <lo is to lie found in a western eiinimunity of 1.(100 persons, in which thirteen denominations have been sup porting separate churches with mis sionar.v funds, wliile an adjacent b riforj of ."itt.OOO persons has only three churches Hy seeing that all mission ary hoards are supplied with informa tion in such eases, the movement will make possible a wiser distribution of funds. Its first yon Is are to reduce unneces sary duplication and overlapping to a minimum and to briny about an intelli gent division of labor in unoccupied fields. The movement is. a bottom, an attempt to put church hnsiiutss on the sound, rock-bottom business-like foun dations upon which the great commer cial institutions of America are built.

Where Nature Smiles and Men Are Brave To one who has never had the good fortune to have an acquaintance with i Williamsburg one mi-'ht i!y obtain an erroneous impression when one 1 Btudies the map of Kentucky. Williamsburg is the county seat of I Whitley county ucv.n in the south < ’Vstorh corner of the Blue Grass State •where the Cumberland Mountains ramble around at will and help to sep arate Kentucky from Virginia and Tennessee One can hardy help recalling the wonderful tale oi John Fcx, Jr., and the wanderings ard doings of the Lit tle Shepherd of Kingdom Come, corn -s | to mind without effort, and places him In a receptive mood for the romance that a visit of Williamsburg will dis pel. From a scenic standpoint he will not be disappointed. Nestling down amid the foothill of the Cumberland range, with the Cumberland River piercing a wondrously beautiful valley fnd adding to the beauty of the land scape, the capital of Whitley county is mighty appealing to the visitor. But if he be looking for picturesque people, and the more picturesque stills, presided over by the “moonshiners,” he must needs look ir. vain. For there is no su< .1 thing in Whitley county- There I wealth there, much of it. There is c iture there, too, but is not spelled wit 1 n “K." There are good streets, a ! o business soction, and a residence s etion that will com pare more than i vorably with a city that can boast 1 population many times in c-xcen of Williamsburg’s three thousand. Perhaps it is t! e Institution that is the pride of all V dliamsburg that has so refining an in. cnce on the people of that section, '.’early a century ago groups of Christians who believed in tho cause of education founded in that city what has developed into Cumber land College. In the start it was de nominational. But that is past now, and hundreds of students from many states each year gather in this beauti ful and sequestered city and gain an education, regardless of the church with which he may be affiliated. They raise a sturdy and intelligent class of men down in Southeast Ken tucky. Alexander W. Bryant, a prod uct of Whitley county, and a resident of Williamsburg since his early youth, is a fair specimen. Another is E. E. Pritchard, whom Woodrow Wilson named as postmaster for the little city, and who is as popular there as though the county was not nearly ten to one Republican. Eryant is yet well v !er 40, and he looas even younger tiian the years that he owns. When Bryant was a lad of 1" he left his home ia the mountains and set out to gr.ii his (duration, lie did this, nrcl when he was only 18 years old the Span!. h-Am.ri-an War came on Mi J he enlisted as a private, and served for eight years, e'ghi months and fifteen day. He was in Manila and participated in 13 battles, escap ing without a sera eh. After his soldering days he returned to the home of his youin, married ,.ad embarked on a busine s career. ! ho money he saved during his military service started him in bus u . .. in a modest way, and he nas be n fortunate In all of his ventures. “1 am just a.- pitriotic today as I wa when 1 v as buying Liberty Ifends," said Brya«.t to the Savings in ,;d i -an, ' bui will admit that is only one of the r ■ ons I a:n now buy ing : .. limit or. the Treasury Savings Certificates. One lvason 1 am buy lag Is, time 1 cannot see anything like as good and as safe an investmtr.1 any where. "li the government is to bring back the f untr. to ■ normal it must have l '.s.i .us \ lUCt.ey to put every b.eh ot industry to work 'o tht ut :a .t, and to c’e..to a for'ign demand f r A.. an products, and to pave tie -vay for the citizens of this coun try to participate in the reconstruction work, not only here, bu in Europe. "Tile only way it can obtain this money is through the savings of the people. The present conditions aro really deplorable. Many who never be fore earned anything like the amount they are now earning are spending the money as rapidly as it comes in, arid are giving no thought for ’he morrow. "They are not only treating them selves unfairly, but they are retarding the welfare of the entire country. When Increased production of essen tials are vital the though’loss are spending the money they earn for lux uries and non-essentials. ”E\ery cent of money that is spent for those useless articles leaves t hi community, m ver to return. If the wage er nev would only start a sys tematic saving, by buying War Sav ings Stamps and Treasury Savings Certiflcat s. he would soon have a uest rgg that would serve him well in after years, arm he would at the same time aid his government in solving tho financial problems that now confront us. and that, if properly solved, will keep this country at the head of all nations of tho world for many years to come."
