Chandler, who started as princiand who pal of the Lindsey-Wilsohad heretofore served in that capacity, was called early, in the session to the army, the school has ,been a success, and the Educational Board of the Louisville Conference say that it is well pleased with the work. Prors. Crume and Lewis and all the other teachers have been diligent and deserve the congratulations of the patrons. The next term will start in September, but there will be several changes made in the faculty. The Chapel was well filled on last Thursday evening, being drawn thither by an oratorical contest in which five young men of the institution entered for the medal. The speakers were Clarence Piercy, Hogard Campbell, S. C. White, Elmer Ashby, and Everett Wilson. Each selection was good and all the speakers acquit ted themselves in a most admirable manner, eliciting applause from the audience. The Judges were Messrs. A. H. Ballard, Bruce Montgomery and L. C. Winfrey, all gentlemen of judgment, who paid strict attention. When the last speaker concluded, the judges retired, and in due course of time reported that they had agreed that Hogard Campbell was the winner.

All arrangements have hot been completed, but "the committee, L. Akin, J. W.

There has been no friction, and the school under the same Superintendent, will open again in the fall. There will be a number of changes made in the faculty of this school, but experienced teachers will be employed. Columbia has been an educational point for more than sixty years, and as a result of good schools there is scarcely a boy or girl in the community who has reached the age of fourteen, but has a fairly good education. The Commencement address for the Graded School will be delivered at the Baptist church Thursday night by Dr. Boyd, of Lexington. Class night Wednesday at the High School Gymmanage- nasium. Sunday forenoon the Baptist Church was filled to its uttermost capacity, to hear Dr. B. T. Watson, pastor of the Presbyterian Church, this place, deliver the baccalaureate discoure to the graduating class, nineteen young ladies and young gentlemen. The address was highly appreciated and happily delivered, and was enjoyed by all present. The music upon this occasion was rendered faultlessly and melodiously by the class. Monday night a play, "Claim Allowed," was given in the High School Gym, fifteen students having parts. It was a splendidly written play, each character carrying out his or her part to perfection.

But I came out no neutral. I cannot conceive that any American enjoying an experience similar to mine could have come out a neutral. He would come out, as I came, with the ineradicable conviction that a people or a government which can do what the Germans did and are doing In Belgium and France today must not be allowed, if there is power on earth to prevent it, to do this a moment longer than can be helped. And they must not be allowed ever to do It again. "I went in also a hater of war, and I came out a more ardent hater of war. But, also, I came out with the ineradicable conviction, again, that the only way In which Germany under its present rule and in its present state of mind can be kept from doing what it has done Is by force of arms. It cannot be prevented by appeal, concession or treaties. Hence, ardently as I nope that all war may cease, I hope that this war may not cease until Germany realizes that the civilized world simply will not allow such horrors as ihose Cor which Germany Is .responsible m Belgium and France- - to be any longer possible. .

"(2) If individual infractions of police regulations are committed, the authorities will Institute a search for the responsible authors and will punish them, without placing the responsibility on the entire population. "(3) The German and Belgian authorities will neglect nothing to see that food is assured to the population." These promises were not kept, as Cardinal Mercier and his colleagues, show by abundant evidence in the "Appeal to Truth." "On March 23d, 1915, at the arsenal at Luttre the German authorities posted a notice demanding return to work. On April 21st, 200 workmen were called for. On April 27th soldiers went to fetch the workmen from their homes and take them to the arsenal. In the absence of a workman, a member of the family was arrested. Workmen Imprisoned on Trains. "However, the men maintained their refusal to work, 'because they were unwilling to in acts of war against their country.' "On May 4th, 24 workmen detained in prison at NIvelles were tried at Mons by a 'on the charge of being members of a secret society, having for Its aim to thwart the carrying out of German military measures.'

"A similar course was adopted at Mallnes, where by various methods of intimidation, the German authorities attempted to force the workers at the arsenal to work on material for the railways, as if it were not plain that this material would become war material sooner or later. court-martia- l, Automobile Line.
