Here he reassembled the armor to show how it worked. The legs and arms, which are very flexible, are d copper tubing, made of guaranteed to stand 700 pounds of pressure to the square Inch.

The shoulder is a solid casting of manganese bronze and has g which allows the man a within to move his arms, which would not be possible without ball or roller bearings." Here Mr. Leavitt whirled the arm around freely to illustrate his point "At a submergence of 361 feet, there is 6,664 pounds pressure here." He called attention to the fact that the cable attached to the top of the helmet has a guaranteed lifting strength of 20,000 pounds.

The conference will be in session for three days, during this time every available moment being taken up with intensive consideration of church problems, both as they affect Georgia and the entire Christian field throughout the world. It will meet at 2 o'clock of the first day, and remain in session with conferences morning, afternoon and evening, until the late afternoon of the third day. One of the most vital matters which will be brought up for consideration will be the results of the religious survey of the state, which will be presented through the medium of graphic charts, maps and picture slides. Although the survey will not be completed at that time, there will be a large number of the counties of the state ready for exhibition, and these will form the basis of consideration. The results of the surveys are said to be very startling in their revelation of church weakness throughout rural districts, and they will show many opportunities for concentrated action on the part of the churches in this state. The Interchurch World Movement, in making its surveys, simply discovers the facts which exist, and then refers the findings to the churches of each county and state for whatever action is deemed necessary by the churches. Present at the meeting will be some of the great Christian leaders of the Smth and of the nation. Some of the strongest men in the southern churches will be in attendance 'as speakers. There will also be one or more of the directing heads of the Interchurch World Movement among the speakers to speak with authority on whatever features of the movement All 17-1- 9.

The remainder ol the afternoon will tfin be devoted tc the foreign survey, during which th actual facts as they now exist in the missionary fields of the world will be placed before the delegates. The evening session will be devoted to the home survey, both in this state and in the rest of America. The second days' session will open at 9 o'clock in the morning with a devotional exercise. The proceedings ol the day will be divided into intervals of fifteen and forty-fivminutes foi the consideration of many important subjects. First will come discussions of religious education, then hospitals and homes and industrial relations Fifteen minutes will be given to the literature of the movement and alsc a financial exhibit of the movement's affairs. American education will be allotted a prominent place. In the afternoon, the subjects will include evangelism, the field program, financial organization and the educational group. The evening will be devoted to a general discussion of the movement need for such a as the Interchurch among the Protestant forces of America, especially in their relation to home affairs and world conditions. The final day will deal with organization and the findings of the various committees which will have been appointed for investigation during the course of the conference. One of the most important proceedings of the meeting will be the smaller conferences of ministers from each denpmination during the course of the main conference. There will be time provided for such meetings in order that the denominations may determine upon denominational policies and uniform campaigns covering the entire state, and may take such action rewith other degarding nominational bodies as may seem advisable. followed e ra TOKK Fabric, All.Weather Tread tires and for Goodyear Heavy Tourist Tubes He has them if Us e 30x3 Goodyear Doable-Cur- a - rnCS ZU Goodyear Single-Cur- e Fabric, Anti-Ski- d Tread 30x34 $1765 Goodyear leavy Tourist Tubes are thick. strong tubes tnat reinforce casings properly.

Methinks I hear the clear sweet voice of my friend, as she mingles dear ones on the shores of a beautiful world, where no separation will come again. She is happy. No tongue can express the sweet delights of her new home.

AH are'busy over there. Mansions are being prepared and made ready for those who are going to stand the great, final test. The town in which she lived has lost one of its rarest jewels. May her rich mantle fall on the dear, lonely girl who is left.

I have never met one that I thought was a stronger character. Positive, but mild with those who did not agree with her, full of confidence and hope she journeyed on. Long will I remember one Sunday afternoon we went together to yfeit a sick friend. She spoke freely to me on different things. How I enjoyed the conversation. She was a great lover of flowers and good deeds. She was always mindful to extract the thorn if there was any when doing an act of kindness.

The most Important single item was that of the cost of mobilization, which amounted, at the end of 1918, to $330,560,000, bringing the government expenses, due to the war, to a total of $411,787,006. Nearly $160,000,000 was raised by direct taxes and $352,000,000 was obtained by loans.

On the mainland, the pamphlet says, Holland was entirely surrounded by territory in the hands of one of the belligerents, while the North sea, more than any other waterway, was part of the war zone.

Large profits came from agriculture, In clay soil, in the first years of the war. Sandy soil could not be cultivated, owing to lack of fertilizers, and the requisitioning of rye, formerly used as fodder, caused serious reduction In the number of cattle.
