PASTORS-LAYMEN CONVENTION Pastors and laymen representing one hundred and nineteen Evangelical Lutheran churches in Michigan and Indlhia met here in tlie forty-first annual iconference .of the Michigan district, at St. Paul's church. The ses- seslons continued from June S to June 12. The Ladies Aid of the church served dinner and supper each day in, the Eastern Star dining hall with Mrs. W. L. Sturm chairman; supplementary chairmans, Mrs. Herman Hutzel, Mrs. Arthur Armbr.uster and Mrs. George Schmid, The chief speakers the first evening were Rev. Theodore Eisen of Andrews, Indiana and Rev. Albert Sehoen, Manchester; the local pastor Rev. Wittbracht giving the address of welcome. Rev J. Wulfnian of Mt. Clemens, president of the Michigan district conducted the special conference of pastors and laymen and a joint meeting of these groups also was held. An alumni banquet was held. Alii of the Evangelical pastors are grad-. •nates of tEiden college, St. Louis, Mo. Rev. Bj Niehubr of Detroit had charge of the program. Officers for the ensuing year were named. The speakers on the second evening were Rev. F. Lueckhoff of Detroit and Rev. F. Schreiber of Grand Rapids. At this service Holy communion was observed. Saturday the conference adjourned for recreation and went by^ automobile to the Irish Hills. ..After returning Saturday evening a banquet was held in Eastern Star hall with Rev. Theo-. dore Eisen, district president, chair-, mam, * Sunday morning Rev. Schreiner and Rev. Wittbracht preached. At the evening- service the new officers were installed by Rev. F/ Senne of La Portie, Indiana-. ■ Shortly afterwards he and his brother went into tlie livery business in Ann Arbor, their barns being on lower Main street In the same year he married Miss Julia Esslinger, a resident of that city. About this time autos began to be more prominent and Mr. Stark who was now running the business alone, bought a few taxis, the first in the city. For six years he operated this business and then sold out to a man named Walker who operated a rival concern. In 1905. Dan Sutton was elected sheriff and took Mr. Stark into his office as chief deputy. In the next term he was undersh.eriff under his brother, W. H. Stark. During these eigth years Mr, Stark became a well kn?wn figure in the college commu- nitty. His fairness and his sympathy with the youths who were attending college soon made him a more privileged character than most officers of the law. '"The students in those clays," said Mr. Stark, "were really hard and they •didn't let anybody interfere with their celebrations after a victory on the athletic field. I never bothered them any more than I absolutely had to and I never had much trouble when I did want to interfere with theeir fun in some way. They made more noise and commotion than than they do now, but so long ?s they were not destroying property to any great extent I let" them go. That was our policy then and I'll bet we had less real trouble with the students than the police over there do now in their theatre riots." In 1913, at the end of his brother's term, he left the sheriff's office and opened a garage there, where he sold different makes of cars during the next four years, and also ran a few taxis. When intensive training began at Camp Custer there was a lot of trouble between the soldiers and the taxi drivers, which caused a lot of friction in the otherwise smooth running eainip. The commandant, wishing to do, away with this trouble, sought about for a man to put in charge of the taxi association which was operating around the camp. And, because of his experience as a, sheriff and R. taxi, operator, Mr. Stark was chosen and for the next three ..etrs he handled the Camp Custer Taxi Association. At the end of the war he returned to Ann Arbor and went to work as a salesman .for Piatt's Ford agency. He remained there for over fiv<= years. Last year he icame to S?1 and. opened his garage where ht Oaklands and Pontiacs. Mr. and Mrs. Martin Fuoss and son, Robert, and Mr. and Mrs. E. A. Clark and son, Richard, w*ere in Detroit Friday night to complete arrangements for the long trip to* be taken by Robert and Richard and 63 other boys from southern Michigan. The meeting was held at he Detroit-Leland lwteil and was under the direction cf George E. Buchanan, who has' put on several of these trips for boys in. previous years. At this time, the boys who are expected to make the trip were given checks covering the one-third cost which ia advanced to each boy by M*r. Buchanan. Each boy going has .earned another one-third of the amount and the remainder is paid by theboy's parents. The boys will leave Detroit on the Michigan Central railroad, June 30, at 9 a. m. At; 8:30 they are to assemble at the station to have •their pictures taken, and to pose for the "movies." Groups of boys who have made previous trips with Mr. Buchanan's hei©, also are scheduled to taike part in the proceedings. Alaska and the Yukon is the objective of the trip, and the boys(willbe given the opportunity of their life, as many intermediate stops will be made.
