VICKS VA TRO NOL TODAY & SATURDAY .' . . PLUS . . . "DIPPY DIPLOMAT" Field Marshal Sir Bernard L. Montgomery's acquaintance with the Bible is now a tradition, . . . Recently his aged mother said: "I brought up my children to learn a verse from the Bible every morning before breakfast. It may be that General Montgomery's knowledge and love of the Bible starts from this fact. As is well known, the two books that he carries always with him are the Bible and 'Pilgrim's Progress'. England and America owe their greatness to the Bible. Let us pray that the Bible, God's Word to us, may again take its rightful place in our hearts and homes. '»So I would urge upon all do your utmost to bring back the Bible to the nation. And the best way to do this is to begin in your own home, and for you and your children to learn a verse of the Bible by heart- daily." TRIGGER TERROR Last Times today _;_ „ _, j.-'S.
