Rev. Mr. Boblltt has taken a law- course in Ohio State University, That Mr. BobJitt appeals to men Is shown by the fact that recently in a three days' canvass he raised eighty- five men who declared 'themselves -willing to respond to their country's call, should their help be needed. His wide experience as song-leader la general given him a deep sympathy with all religious or-- ganizations, and his relation to all churches is one of friendliness. For the last two years Rev.
