LAYMEN'S CAMPAIGN FOR THE MISSIONS Lethbridge Laymen From All the Churches Hear Addresses From Outside Workers COAL FIELDS LETHBRIDGE ON MAIN LINE The Lavmen's Missionary movement which is spreading so rapidly and tak ing- such firm" hold on the attention of. the laity of the churches of Cana- da arid other countries received, a good start in Lethbridge last night whea the young people's societies of the city gave the first missionary banquet. Around the tables which were set in St. Augustin's Parish Hall sat sixty of representative busi- ness men. who after partaking of the excellent viands listened with great Interest arid apparent profit to the splendid bddresses civen by the visit- j imr the local speakers. During the evening solos by Miss Simm, Miss Archer, Mr. Ely, and Mr. were much enjoyed. a A CALGARY LAYMAN The first speaker, J. E. Bull, of Cal srary. was introduced by the chair- man, acting-mayor C. B. Bowman, who in doing so briefly stated the pur .pose of the fathering. Mr; Bull said that the missionary problem was be- ing" handled differently now to what it. had been. The -business men of the church had come to realize that the too large for the preachers: women and children, to whom it had been previously left and that the great graded osition of the nation will be according to the ideal we set. The secret of our greatness lies in the op- en Bible throughout the country and throughout the- world.

Dealing with Chi- na particularly he spoke of the ab- solute necessity of Christianity as the saving element of civilization.. The Chinese other great non-Chris- tian peoples must be "christianized to save them and to save ourselves. The responsibility of the laymen in the matter lies in .the fact that our first duty is to be-obedient .to the coni-: mantl of God and the greatest is to London, Feb. Somers, the English pugilist tonight received the decision over Jimmy Britt of Cal- ifornia in a twenty round bout. The fight was held "before the National Sporting Club, and a big crowd which evinced the greatest interest owing to the lively fight these two men put up last November. On that date the go was a ten round affair and Britt was the victor. Tonight Somers got the decision on points. Both Somers and Britt had trained hard for -the meeting.''and were in far better con- dition than -when they met before. Doling the early stages Britt did most of the. leading, apparently 'start- ing out with a" view to "securing a knock out.
