The need of the hour is not more factories or materials, not more railroads or steamships, not more armies or more navies, but rather more education based on the plain teachings of Jesus. The prosperity of our country depends on the motives and purposes of the people. These motives and purposes are directed in the right course only through religion. Legislation, bounties or farce are of no avail in determining man's attitude toward life. Harmony at home and peace with the world will only be determined in the same way. Religion, like everything else ?• value, must be taught. It is possible to get more religion in industry and business only thru the development of Christian education and leadership. "With the forces of evil backed by men and money, systematically organized to destroy, we must back with men and money all campaigns (or Christian education. *We are willing to give our proper ty and even our lives when our country calls in time of war. Yet the call of Christian education is today of ev- i 3n greater importance than was ever t he call of the army or' rhe navy. 1 si ly this because we shall probably ni vsrer live' to see America attacked frc >m without, but we may at» any tin, te isee our best institutions attacked 1 ""rom within. I am not offering Christian education gts a protector of property, be- causeisaearlyat} the great progressive and liberal movements >, of history have Sseen born in the hearts of Christian educators, I do, however, insist tftatJ the safety of our sons and daughters, as they go out on the streets this very ni,ght, is due to tho. influence of ithe preachers rather than to the influence of^the policemen and law makers. Yes, the safety of our nation, including all groups, depends on Christian education. Furthermore, at no time in our history has it been more greatly needed. *We msnre our 'houses and factories, our automobiles, and our businesses thru mutual and stock' insurance companies, but the .same amount of 'money invested in .Christian education would give far greater results. Besides, Christian education can in- SINGING FOB ROYALTY— A HABIT WITH LENORA SPABKES Appearing before the members of the different royal families of Europe has become such an every day occa- sion~*w^th Lenora Sparkes, the Metropolitan Opera soprano who . will sing the .role of "Aida" at the Ann Arbor festival, that it is almost a habit for her. During the years that she sang at the Royal Opera, Covenc Garden, London, King George and Queen Mary were frequent occupants of the royal box, especially on nights when the Puccini operas were sun?, for King George has a decided preference for them and especially "La Boheme." Musetta in "La Boheme" is one of (Miss Sparkes' favorite roles and she has sung frequently in both London and New York. During one Lenton season she was especially engaged to; take part in performances of Bach's "Pas*sion Music" at St. Ann's Church, Soho, and for four successive Friday evenings Queen Alexandria and her "lady in waiting the Duchess of Buccleugh s^'what "no~ corporation, nan insux4?c_cupi,0d ^J!!?16 .f^ilSpf*eS TJiree Classes of Competition Set for . State High School Track Events At M. A. C. June 4. Small high schools of Michigan will have just as good a chance to win honors at this year's track meet as will the largest city institutions. Three classes of competition, based on enrollment of the schools, have been announced, with identical prizes and honors attached to each classification. . The meet, whjch will be held at the Michigan Agricultural college on June 4, has been designated by the" governing board of the Michigan Interscholastic Athletic - association as the official state meet for 1921, and will draw entries from schools scattered over the entire state. High schools of more than 500- enrollment ares (grouped in. class A of entrants; those between 250 and "500 are class B; and all under 250 .will be known as class C. This is the first year that there have been three classes at the M. A. C. state meet, the change having been made to ensure a better chance for the schools, who will now compete against institutions of their own rating. There will be 24 schools in -class A; 37 in class B ,and all the rest in class C, according to announcement of C. L. Brewer, director of athletics at M. A. C, who has been appointed by the M*. I." A.

P. Quality to convince anybody that it's the truth! From the way our sales are increasing, it looks as though Sehnebelt's Home Made Bread. were a pretty good Cjonvineer! At leagk, we haven't heard of anybody trying Sehnebelt's Home Made Bread, and going back to ''bakers' bread." Sehnebelt's Bakery —namely, prosperity. As the great life insurance companies are spending huge sums on doctors, scientific investigations, and district nurses to improve the health of the nation, so 'we husiness men should spend huge sums to develon those fundamental religious qualities of integrity, industry, faith4 and service, which make for true prosperity. I repeat, the need of the hour is—not mora factories or materials, not more railroads or -steamships, not>1 more armies or navies—but rather more Christian education. This is not the time to. .reduce investments in schools and colleges at home, or in Y. M. C. A. and similar work in China, Japan, Russia or South America.

On another occasion she sang by royal command before Prince Charles of Denmark, the present King of Norway. During the recent visit of the Prince of Wales to New York Miss Sparkes was a guest on board the battleship Renown on which the prince sailed back to England. «It was quite natural-that she should be asked to, sing for the British Jack- ies who were aboard* and she ^was only too glad to comply with the request. She has the happy faculty of choosing her songs to suit her audience whether it be composed of kings and queens or jolly Jack Tars and so-she chose songs which the men knew and enjoyed all the more on account of that.

Lionel Bar.rymore in a striking screen version of "The Copperhead," the play in which he scored "his greatest success on the stage, will be the attraction at the Liberty theatre for two days, eommeneing Saturday. The picture is said to have been made on an unusually large scale and to follow closely Augustus Thomas' original story. The locale is Milleville, Illinois and I the action takes' place during three periods—that of the Mexican war, just before the Civil war, in 1862, and in 1904. Mr. Barrymore appears as the hero, Milt Shanks, who in his accomplishment of a most dangerous and important mission for President Lincoln is obliged to pose as a traitor to his country, is disowned by his own friends and family, and is vindicated only upon his death bed. The story is one of intense dramatic appeal. A whole/Village was constructed by the Famous Playars-Lasky Corporation as the background for the film, and no efforts were spared to mak "The Copperhead" a really big photoplay. William P. Garleton, Doris Rankin, and Richard Carlyle are included in the cast. The picture, which is a Paramount Artcraft, was directed by Charles Maigne.
