Ninety two members of the commute of one Hundred met at the methodist Church sunday afternoon to Complete the organization. Great enthusiasm prevailed and the result of the conference shows a determination on the part of the members that Ames will get into the game and be at the front in this great Forward movement for men and religion. Rev. William j. Minch in president of the ministerial association As chairman of the special committee presided Jand gave Many suggestions for pushing the movement. A in this great movement said or. Minch in a manhood counts for everything. We must have men connected with these affairs whose personal inti hence will count for something. We must enlist these men into this undertaking and build up the spirit of the master in this Community. We must carry this religion into every Home and into every business. To interest men Iii the gospel it must be interpreted in a Manly masculine Way. Men Are ready to listen to tile gospel and to respond to it if it is presented without cant and formality the purpose and characteristics of the new movement were explained by the speaker and tile methods set Forth with which it could gain headway in tile churches. To take up the big problems of the world and express religious life Iii intense terms of service is the tiling for the churchmen to do rather than sing the glories it f the far away land. He explained that the movement is not in reality a new one but an emphasis on the organizations already in existence such As the y. M. A., the brotherhoods the Gideons and the menus clubs. In speaking of i he prominence of women in religious circles he declared that with the right interpretation of the Bible men could become More interested in the work and take a More Active part in it. That men Are not making their manhood count in the churches was the assertion of the speaker. In a this uplift movement a said or. Minchin a we must surround ourselves with men of character men who promote Christian citizenship and whose tendencies Are in the direction of better and purer lives. As an organized body we can accomplish great things for Ames and for the bettering of conditions which have stood too Long uncorrected. We have a condition Here which Calls for the Best work even though at a personal sacrifice to individual members of this Community. But we can not make Progress unless we do make sacrifices Auld by making sacrifices we not Only Benefit the cause but we receive a Benefit for ourselves in blessings which we can not in explaining the Forward movement he said in part a the Forward movement emphasizes the fact that the gospel of a sus Christ has a social aspect that Jesus Christ cares about the wage problem that he cares about the conditions of the factories that he ares about the treatment of those who toil that he is interested in the houses in which they live. It teaches that men care about these things and that the Church cares. It is Only necessary to express this care. Running through All life like a major note is the idea that life is sacred and holy in All its aspects. The time is coming when the doctor the lawyer the merchant and the Farmer will find their business interwoven with their religious life and they will interpret their lives in terms of service. The time is not far Distant when men will talk about their religious life just As enthusiastically and devoutly As about some real estate Deal or other business the organized movement. The several committees which had been selected were assigned to different rooms in the Church and proceed to organize and to Block out the work that is to follow. Special emphasis was made of the four Days rally which will probably be held Early in january. In the meantime the several committees will Start operations in their different lines and will make an Earnest Effort to enlist the services and the attendance of every Man and boy in Ames at the regular Church services and a faithful attendance at the four Days rally.

Already there is great enthusiasm Over this event.

No damage resulted from the new Ames daily five years ago the publisher of the intelligencer promised the business men of Ames that when the proper time come he would provide them with a paper oftener than once a week. The time has never seemed just right for such a venture until the present moment. Men go through the world confirmed bachelors waiting until they can afford to get married. Men go to their Graves unsaved sinners waiting until they Are Good enough to embrace religion. If Ames had to wait until All the conditions were absolutely right before a daily could be established it would never have a daily. Ames needs a daily. The intelligencer is Here to Supply the needs of the Community in this line. Ames great growth during the past five years in population the Extension of her territory until the town is practically five Miles Long with established metropolitan habits metropolitan privileges Are required and the Only Means of becoming acquainted with the affairs of the City is through the newspaper. Merchants have found the weekly paper entirely too slow to Supply their wants. To reach these Homes oftener than once a week has required in enormous expense in circulating circulars and Bills. With a daily newspaper this expense to individual advertisers can be materially reduced. The big problems which confronts Ames educationally commercially religiously socially and industrially can be better served by a More frequent visit of the local newspaper to the Homes every Day than Only once a week. The daily intelligencer will appear every evening except sunday. It will be a modest newspaper to Start with. No great claims will be made for it As to size. It will however Supply the needs and will grow just As fast As the business will warrant. The Best work of those connected with the Enterprise will be put into it and it will make every Effort to Merit a Liberal patronage because to grow it must have a substantial patronage. The daily intelligencer will be the first daily paper printed in Story county. You can Aid in the Enterprise. You can make it easy for us to secure the news. You can boost. The reputation of a town abroad is the reputation Given it by its newspapers. It is to your interest and to the interest of every Enterprise to make the intelligencer the Best newspaper in the state of Iowa. The daily intelligencer extends its greetings to the citizens of Ames and Story county. Great Farmers organization holds state convention Henerey John a Clydey my a. Secretary v. M. R. A.
