These meetings will be held every night except Saturdays until Sunday, March 26. They start at 7:30. Mrs. Ivan Barnes Wednesday night gave an interpretation of Todd's picture the Nazarene. Mrs. Barnes said "With the Christ in art so often depicted as a Latin type, Col. Todd's painting is startling at first, in Us divergence from convention. This Nazarene has golden hair and blue eyes. In this, the artist has complete support, in the history · ot Biblical times. There were blond tribes of Israel."

NICHOLAS DID YOU LOSE IT? R. F. Kehrberg of Sheldon assembled a collection of articles left by men, women and children in his theater during the past 90 days. He placed the articles on display in the theater. Included among them were such things as children's mittens, a prayer book, a pair of men's trousers and belt, hats, caps, gloves, even hunting caps. Mr. Kehrberg reported that children's mittens, hats, caps and gloves lead the list, with women's shawls, handbags and gloves, next. Signs were placed on the billboard in various places, some of them reading: "Everything that is lost isn't lost in this theater, but some.of them are," "If you lost it, take it," "All goods lost over 30 days, will be given away," "AH cigarets lost in this theater will be smoked by the management.' Jesus has been one of the most heartening and inspiring influences of all history. We refer to Jesus as the World's Savior, because in His mind and sympathy He included men of all classes, races and nations. He had a vital and satisfyine message for all and His truths are as appropriate today as when He uttered (hem in the first century. "No one can read the New Testament without realizing that His sj'mpathies, plans, purposes and hopes were for the people of all races and all generations. He believed that all men of all classes had in them the capacity to become truly the Sons of God. He dreamed passionately that the kingdoms of the whole world would become the Kingdom of Our Lord. "I am anxious tonight that we might see Him as He is--a friend and sympathizer-pf every man. Today we might think of Him not merely as one who died for me, but as well one who believes in me. He sketched His life, not only upon our right to confidence but as well upon our judgment and willingness to accept life in all its fullness if given opportunity." Thursday night the choir under the direction of Mrs. L. K. Myser will sing "Oh, Lord Most Holy" by Harker. Mrs. Myser, a newcomer from Des Moines, has been engaged to direct the choir succeeding Miss Ruth Bcrhends, who resigned because of pressure of school duties. Mrs. Myser is a graduate and post graduate of Drake university. She completed her musical education at the Institute of Musical Art in New York City. After her at Scarborough on the Hudson, graduation from the institute she taught music in a private school She has served as organist at the Central Christian church in New York City and while in New York, she was engaged as concert accompanist by several outstanding WESLEY WEST --Photo by Lock. Firing Course Is Held by Company E If anyone passing by the armory these nights wonders what the shooting is all about here's the answer. It is Company E on the indoor target range.

The course is fired in four positions, prone sitting, kneeling and standinj with two sighting shots and ten rounds for record in each position. While the entire course has no been fired it is apparent that th company has some excellent shot! and if the average is maintained more t h ' a n a few will receive certificates of qualification. Al necessary equipment, arms and ammunition are furnished with out expense to the men, and th firing is one of the most interest ing phases'of training. A postal match is being ar ranged within the 2nd Regimen in which each organization wi enter a team of fire men wit two alternates. E. company wi be represented by Sgt. Fran Schoben, Cpl. Robert C.

The local Red Cross campaign is now on Us last lap and if all divisions wilh work still to be done will carry on, attainment of the $51,500 goal U not far off, said General Chairman Paul Pritchard. Thursday's new funds, which boosted the total to 83 per cent of the quota, came largely from the rural areas and from the industrial solicitation in Mason City. Solicitation of smaller firms is completed. Workers report that contributions are being nude gladly. Practically everyone approached has heard of the gigantic program carried on by the Red Cross. This includes a vastly increased job on the home front, facilities adding to the comfort of men in U. S. camps and a farflung program of services for men abroad in camps or on fighting fronts. One service performed by the Red Cross that never fails to get admiration is its ability to reach war prisoners with food and other necessary articles. * NAVY VOLUNTEERS -- The 5 young men shown here who volunteered their services at the local pavy office left Wednesday for Des Moines.

Slimson, Secretary of War--"I should like to take this opportunity to express once more the high opinion in which the army holds the service Red Cross workers are rendering not only at the posts in this country but in our theaters overseas. The cluhs and other centers established in rest areas are performing an important morale function in recreating something of the familiar atmosphere of our country for men who must necessarily remain far from home." Frank Knox, Secretary of the Navy--"The American people know the work of the American Red Cross so well and admire it so greatly that there is nothing we need be told about it. There is many a man in the navy today who would not be alive were it not for your help. Our wounded have received blood plasma.
