That Omaha churches are com

made plain by George G. Wallace at
the Voting: Men's Christian assorts.
fori, at the regular monthly meeting
of the Omaha Ministerial union.
He has lived tn Omaha thirty-two
years, and from his active church ex
perience as a layman during that long
period, he presented a survey of
church mission work in Greater
Omaha, which brought home very
forcibly to the assembled preachers
the fact that .their churches are now
lagging far behind in the work of extension.
"Lonsr periods of apathy and Indiffer
ence have marked Omaha church work
since the early dnya," he declared.
"Twenty years ago there were twice as
many church missions In Omsha as there
are now. Although the population has
quadrupled, the number regularly organ

Chicago Firm Gets
Contract on First
About the biggest Job in connection
' with the construction of the new First
National Bank building has been let to
Lendqulet & Illsley of Chicago. This la
the contract for the foundation and ma'
aonry, which Includes all the bricklaying,
At the bank It was Stated that this con'
tract waa let to a Chlcasa firm beaause
v-J they, are familiar with, and experienced
XVi, the putting down of caisson founds'
tions, such foundations having been found
by the architects to be necessary under
a building of this character.
The bank has decided to let the work
on segregated contracts, C. T., Kountse
aald, because It was that more of the
'work could be let to Omaha contractors
- in that way than if one general contract
was mads. This means that there Is to
be no general contract on the structure.
The contract for the structural steel
i was let during July to tha Omaha Struo-
t tural Steel Works. Contracts tor the
remainder of the work are to be let
shortly. Local bidders are to be given
preference, it la said at the hank.
The contract for the plumbing, heating
and ventilating waa awarded to an
Omtih'i firm, the B. Orunwald company.

ministers for the prevailing conditions,
when the subject was thrown open to
"It is- appalling how Ignorant sone
leading churchmen are concerning the lo
cal mission work of their own chuixh,"
Mr. Wallace declared, "Some dor't oven
known that their church has 'a 'mlxsnii
branch In Omaha.
"One young man I talked with said
that limousines and a high class hot
would ' be necessary to get membori of
his church to attend and take an interest
in the services at his church's local mis
sion. He eaid the members weie doing
well to attend teir o-vi church, let alone
monkeying with a mission."
A campaign for 2.000 more members of
Omaha churches by. Easter was outlined
