The school authorities of the coun try were urged to join in the Gover- ment Campaign to make Thirft a hap py national habit in a telegram sent by Secretary Glass of the Treasury Department to the National Educa tion Association in convention at Chi cago. Secretary Glass asked that the teaching of Thrift be made a part of the school Curriculum during 1919. The telegram follows: “To the members of the National Education Association assembled at Chicago I wish to extend the sincere appreciation of the Treasury Depart ment for the assistance rendered by the members of the teaching profes sion in the Liberty Loan and War Sav ing Campaigns during the past year.

This very practical and definite step is to be taken by the Methodist Cspiscopal Church, South, following the financial drive of that denomination in April. The drive, which has.$35,000,000 as its goal, has been undertaken with a view to put ting the work of the church on a bus iness basis, the raising of the salaries of their underpaid pastors being con sidered one of the first matters of importance. There are 866 salaries now $400 or less which will be raised to $600; 588 salaries now $600 and $700 which will be raised to $1000 a year; 637 sal aries from $700 to $800 to be raised to $1000; and 180 salaries ranging from $800 to $900 which will also be raised to $1000. The supplementing of these salaries will require $2,850, 000 during the forthcoming five years and the success of the Centenary drive will make their increase immed iately possible. Practically every city and tow'n throughout the length and breadth of Southern Mehtodism will be affected it is declared at the headquarters of the denomination in Nashville, and every Methodist man and woman who pulls to on the Centenary drive will be helping to make possible better and happier living conditions for the underpaid pastors in their midst. EXPERIENCES OF A SOLDe IN FRANCE TO TEACH THRIFT coucaging habits of spending intelli gent saving and investment. These habits of saving and patriotism, en couraged and stimulated by the nec essities of the war, will have a great permanent value to the country if applied to its develoment in time of peace. The teachers of the country by their daily contact with the child ren who are to be its future citizens can do much to influence them in teaching good citizenship and thrift. It is therefore my earnest request that the school authorites throughout . J — »». v^., „. ij., tney, rememoermg x,nai, u:ie is iiiair ^ ^ i School in a two-days session Nicholson, W. H., Fisher, S.

There will be five five-minute talks by members of the congregations out lining the plan for the Drive and congregational canvass. Following is a letter to Dr. and Mrs. W.' M. Lyday from their son, Lieut. C. E. Lyday, who is with the “Wild Cat” Division, giving his ac tivities from the time he entered the training camp: August 7, 1918—Left Camp Mills at 10:00 a. m., the hottest day that New York has recorded, and marched to Garden City, L. I. with a pack on our backs, where we entrained for Long Island City. We then took a ferry to Bush Terminal docks, which is the largest docks we have in the U. S., which is 1512 feet long. Arrived there at 12:00 o’clock and were given crackers, cheese, doughnuts, and iced coffee by the Red Cross. We just lay- ed around ther6 until about 4:00 o’clock when we were loaded on a boat, which was an old time British freighter, now used for a transport named the Nestor. It took quite some time for us to get straightened out after we were on board but managed to get a pretty good sleep the first night. Aug. 8th, 1918.— Ship sailed at about 1:00 o'clock in a convoy of 15 ships, among which was the Em press of Russia with 500 Red Cross Nurses. There were flying machines, and three derigibles accompaning us for some distance out and just before leaving the harbor we saw the last American Girl in a row boat. It was rather late in the afternoon when we saw the good old Statue of Liberty. We had a very nice* time of it fot the first three days out but I v/as one of the luck ones, I w'asn’t sick, al though a great many of the officers and boys were sick. Owing to the rough sea all officers were in charge of the decks occupied by the enlisted men so to look after the sick ones. There was nothing seen by any of the officers or boys until the morning of the thirteenth when we sighted two very large icebergs of the coasts of Greenland. There were about 150 officers and 3000 soldiers aboard our ship and one night, owing to being all tired from not getting any sleep the firemen refused to work, of course the boys volunteered and a certain number were picked and they fired all the w^ay over. At one time we were about 65 miles behind the rest of the convoy, but that was before the soldiers start ed firing. One day was pretty foggy and the cruiser had to fire two shots to let us know in what direction they w ere. The next day a tanker directly in front of us fired one shot into the water which we never found out the meaning for. On the night of the sixteenth we sav/ a ship to the right of us and signaled it and they refused to return the signal and our topedo boat went to it and then returned the following morning; there was something else we never found out about. The night of the seventeenth our destroyer started on its way back to the good old U. S., and as she passed us she raised Old Glory and believe me there was some hollering. The next noon we were -met by 3 small torpedo boats to escort us into England. Then our torpedo boat left us and headed back to^U. S. and she raised her flag as she passed. We arrived in Liverpool, England at about ten o’clock the night of the nineteenth and stayed on the ship un til the following day and disembarked at ^out 10: 30 A. M. We then hiked through the streets of Livcrpcol, to the Union Station where we were met by a British band consisting of all small boys and they played the Stsgr Spangled Banner and quite a few oth* er very popular songs among the sol- (Continued on page eight.)
