The council would not Ji tM. did it not feel that thia indertaking is not only of exceed Itily I1 importance to those in yfcge behalf it ia launched, bat ilio because it did not see any pggtibility of closing its cars to git call from across the sea and toll maintain ita Christian name aad character. It takes no delight Is asking for large amounts time ind again, for it takes no more pleasure in these financial "drives" this does the average member of oar church. It would rather spend til its time and energy in assisting to build up our Lutheran Zion right BCre at home than to go into for eign lands for the purpose of help ing others along. The - tremendously- reat neea f our European brethren in the faith and the crisis . that is now upon them constitutes the sole and only reason for this aweal- 1 . What, then, is the condition of things? The newspapers of the lud have told us a great deal al ready of the misery existing in the belligerent lands of Europe, but our commissioners, . five of them, who looked upon as anything but pro- ! were sent over there last year to visional. And with the breaking up j suke special investigations, tell us I of the social order went also the I fairs cannot be set down on paper. Hundreds of thousands of families have been dissolved and the mem bers scattered to the winds by the conditions of war. Men, women and children are walking a'aout without food, clothing or homes. Hundreds of thousands of homes have been laid waste, their occu pants driven off and their personal property destroyed. How many tens of thousands have perished during the past winter for lack of food, clothing and shelter will never be known. In some , localities the children up to about seven or eight years have all been taken by death. lMUtatfoat Face Close. A large number of charitable in stitutions, - hospitals, deaconess' homes, orphans', homes, etc, belong ing to the Lutherans, are placed in such a condition that they will be obliged to close their doors and refrain from their ministry of mercy unless help comes from without For in the different lands suffering from the effects of war there is no help to be had for this sort of work, the immediate and moat pressing- matter being, the pro viding of themselves with the nec essary means of livelihood. To have any one of these institutions of mercy, or a number of them, close their doors, would be noth ing short of a calamity, no matter from what point it is viewed. In addition, there is the breaking up of all social order. No present government in any of the coun- tries under consideration can be: 'parsonages destroyed, schools and .theological seminaries were put out .of commission, hundreds of thou sands or the members of the church leu on the field of battle, ministers, professors and school teachers, by the thousands gave their lives in the different armies in one way or another. There is complete chaos in the religious field in far too many instances.. Some of the pro visional governments' are doing their best to uproot the Lutheran church. In the camp of Lutheran ism there is unspeakable lamenta tion and distress bordering on despair. 1 ' Commissioners Report, All this, and a great deal more, was communicated to the National Lutheran council by its commis sioners sent forth to make observa- ! tions. . Should the council content itself only with statements of the condition of things, or should tempt to bring what little aid could? Would it have been true to its trust, if it had folded its arms with the observation that it has done what it could, that it was ex ceedingly sorry for the poor, people, but that it saw no way in which anything . more could be done for them? No red-blooded Lutheran and Christian would then have bad the slightest respect for the coun cil or for the Lutheran church of the U. S. A., particularly since the reformed denominations are going into Europe with millions of dol lars at their command. The coun cil felt that the Lord required of it to put forth every possible effort for the amelioration of suffering the preservation of human life andj fA.

Many people still regard a bank as a mere place to deposit money. ' In times gone by it, is true that this was the chief function of the average bank. THE WIDE AWAKE, PROGRES SIVE bank of today has departed from this restricted field of operation and has become an institution of real community benefit. It is true tliat every bank desires to in crease its volume of deposits and right fully so because the larger its volume of business, the greater extent it should be able to render assistance in the up building and development of the com munity in which its customers live and are engaged in business. We believe that a banker should be courteous, easily approached, and while of neces sity he must be conservative, yet he should be progressive in his ideas, that in return for the confidence imposed in his bank by his customers who have entrusted their business to his care he should maintain a personal interest in them, a desire to see them succeed and prosper, in other words he should render them a real banking service. Be on the level with your fellow men and customers That is the real American idea If your present banking connection is unsatisfactory, if you need additional banking connections or if you feel that the policy of this bank is in accord with your ideas, we invite you to come in and talk it over with the view of establishing business relations with us.
