Eugene Taylor, brother of Mrs
Walter Minniear. arrived home
from Germany last Monday evening,
where he has been in the service of
hi country for more than a year.
He spent four month' in the front
line trenches where he saw and ex
perienced all the terrific flchting of
the closinsr davs of the world war.
He helped take Mount St. Mihiel
was in the Argonne battles, and
helped make the big and last drive
against the German army that clos
ed the war. Since the armistice
was signed he has been in Germany
He saw and experienced a great deal
of army life, and is no doubt plea

at the same time the experience of
the past two years will be worth a
great deal to him in future years.

This movement is an outgrowth
of the new conception of ideals of
religious service emphasized by the
recent world war. On all hands
there is the feeling the Christian
church working through 1 SO de
nominations is not reaching its pos
sibilities. Everywhere there is talk
of federation. The conference went
on tccotA as favoring a Nebraska
inter-church council to make ar
rancements to perfect a local coun
cil in every community.
The movement is fraught with
wonderful possibilities for the ad
vancement of church work. One of
the draw backs felt by the mission
aries in foreign field was to get the
natives to understand the raluc of
Christian religion when it. was pre
sented to them in so many different
interpretations. The church people
are growing more and more to be
lieve, that the big and central thing
which Christ stood for was the lead
ing of a moral life individually and
the practice of the golden rule.
All denominations are beginning
to center on this point as the big
thing in Christian lif and are learn
ing to the individual the privileges
of interpreting for himself the best
method of formal worship.
The federated church is the
church of tomorrow, should be the
church of today, to be a Christian is
the important part. Co-opera f ion
has done wonders in other lines.
Why not in the Christian churches.
Think it over.

Employes Culminate in Fatalities;
Mayor Wires For Troops.
Toledo, O., June 4. Two men
were dangerously wounded in a riot
growing out of the labor disturb
ances involving 13.000 employes of
the Willys-Overland automobile
company. The victims, presumably
idle employes of the company, were
killed by discharged soldiers who
are guarding the plant. The killing
was the culmination of three riots
today and tonight that resulted in
injury to thirteen persons.
The killing occurred in front of a
hre station near the automobile
plant, where a discharged soldier,
with a woman companion. had
nought refuge from a threatening
Soldiers Answer Calls.
Calls for assistance brought two
motor truck loads of soldier guards
from the automobile plant. When
they arrived one of them fired a

that he expected the governor would
comply. The house adjoining the

ers of the idle automobile workers,
who apparently mistook the home
for the mayor's residence.

Charles E. Morris, secretary to

sage, said he would inform the
mayor that Ohio at present is with
out troops and that all it can do is
o request the government to lend

make this request until he had con
sulted the governor1, whri if said
to be out of the city.
Mr. Morris said he thought there
were H.000 troops at Camp Sher
man awaiting discharge, who prob
ably would be available.
At 1 o'clock this (Wednesday)
morning Mr. Morris said he talked
with Mayor Schreiber at Toledo on
the telephone. He said the mayor
told him rioters had driven him
fmm his home by threats and that
he was under guard in his office at
the city hall.
The mayor told Mr. Morris that
no attempt would be made to op
