"War, and other' internationa situations have a direct effec! upon the problem of missions,' said Dr. A. E. Elliott, director of Colegio Internacional, Asuncion, Paraguay, in an address Sunday morning at the Women's day pro gram at the Church of Christ. "In the war between Bolivia and Paraguay, graduates of mis sion schools from both nation were drafted into the business of wholesale manslaughter. The cause of this war is not known, even to the students of Latin-American affairs. Various commercial interests of Europe and America were implicated. Munition concerns had aggravated the hostility by using the threat of the arming of one nation as a means to sell arms to the other. Both nations celebrated peace with great enthusiasm, each having the impression that it had won the war." Dr. Elliott commented on the influence of American radio programs and motion pictures upon Latin-American programs. "While missicmaries are trying to teach the respect for life, newspapers bring in accounts of race disorders in America. All of this has a harmful effect upon the influence of the missionary in foreign fields." Dr. Elliott gave figures of the money spent for intoxicating liquor in America, the high rate of murders and automobile deaths as evidences that human life is regarded lightly here in America. "Missions in foreign countries cannot have a maximum of power and influence until Christian people at home are more vitally controlled by the teachings of Jesus whom they profess to believe." The service was in charge of Mrs. J. W. Hight, president of the Women's Missionary society. The scripture was read by Mrs. S. M. McKee and prayer was offered by Mrs. J. A. Gaschel, PULPIT IJBLE IS DEDICATED Unveiled at Service Held at Olivet-Zion Church. A new pulpit Bible was dedicated at the Olivet-Zion church service Sunday'morning.

"God, the Preserver.'" "God the Preserver of Man" vas the subject of the Lesson- Sermon in the Church of Christ, ;cientist, on Sunday. The Golden, Text was from 'salms 16:1, "Preserve me, O rod; for. in thee do I put my rust." , The Lesson-Sermon comprised quotations from the Bible and rom the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary 3aker Eddy, One of the Bible citations read: 'And we have known and believ- the love that God hath to us. God is love; and-he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in 'him. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear; because fear hath torment. >He that feareth is not made perfect in love" (1 John 4:16, 18). Among the selections from the Christian Science textbook was the following: "The understanding, even in a degree, of the divine All-power destroys fear and plants the feet in the true path,— the path which leads to the house built without hands 'eternal in the heavens.' Human hate has no legitimate mandate and no kingdom. Love is enthroned" (p. 454). Trinity Lutheran church services began with the early service at 8:45 a. m., with serraon by the Rev. 0. L. N.
