organization But not many ar familiar with the absorbing storj which constitutes its history either in Britain where it origi nated in a not too definite form back in the 1860s or in the Unitet States where it was transplante in 1880 This history has been magnif icently compressed into a 242 page book by Dr Herbert A Wis bey a distinguished historian and political scientist from Keuk College New York His interes in the Salvation Army was piquec by a visit to a canteen in Eng land during World War II Eight years of dedicated re search went into the writing o the volume titled Soldiers With out Its off the press o The Macmillen Company The pages are nicely broken up with large pictures of the personalitie most intimately identified with the organization One Mans Influence The extent to which the zea and the dreams of that amazing man Gen William Booth is in scribed in the first century of Sal vation Army history is almost be yond belief He was I am ready to say without qualification one of the dozen strongest leaders o religious thought and action in the past five centuries worthy o being bracketed with such names as Martin Luther Calvin Wesley Knox and some of the most out standing pontiffs In one of the early pages of Soldiers Without we find this revealing appraisal of this amazing man of whom speak A good illustration of the char acter of William Booth was the form of government he estab lished for his rapidly expanding organization Conscious of having a divine mission and convinced that he was under the direct com mand of his Lord and Master William Bopth was impatient of any human restraint and resent ful of any criticism or opposition He demanded implicit unques tioned obedience of his subord inates It was his boast that with a telegram he could send any of his officers to the uttermost parts of the Too Restrained by Calvinism This I mention and stress be cause it is so much a part of the Herbert Wisbey story about the Salvation Army William Booth who had found himself much too restrained in the Calvinist faith in which he was reared was the very heart and core of what at first was known as the Christian Mission and later became the Salvation Army The Calvinist doctrine of pre destination and salvation of the elect was unacceptable to him The Lord Jesus he in sisted has by His suffering and death made an atonement for the whole world so that whosoever will may be This was the driving force HAPPY HAWK FANS TEAR DOWN POSTS Iowa football fans thoroughly overcome by Rose Bowl fever after Saturdays 60 victory over Ohio State batter down the
