United Church /Advocated at
Two Big Church
A campaign will be opened in
Ilarrisburg in the near future for
funds to be used for war and recon
struction purposes by the United
Lutheran church, it was announced
at a victory and merger mass meet
ing held by Lutherans in the Chest
nut Street Auditorium last night.
It was announced that Friday
evening at 7.4 3 o'clock ministers and
delegate laymen of Ihe city will meet
in Zion Lutheran church to fprmu-
Igte plans for the campaign which is
in harmony with a national move
ment. It was further stated that
Thursday evening. February 20, a
member of the Lutheran commis
sion to France will address a meet
ing in Christ Lutheran church, out
lining tne needs of the campaign.
The campaign will open some time
in the middle of this month. Harris
burg's quota toward the national
fund was not announced.
I The great mass meeting last night
| was attended by approximately
2,500 people. An overflow meeting
was held in the Zion Lutheran
church. The meeting was opened
with an invocation by the Rev. G. X.
Lanffer. The Rev. L. C. Manges, who
acted as precenter, led the singing
of "The Battle Hymn of the Repub
lic." Musser D. White, president of
the Lutheran Brotherhood Central
led Scripture reading. The Rev. 11.
W. A. Hanson offered prayer and
the Rev. Dr. F. If. Knubel. president
of the United Lutheran Church of
America, delivered a Stirring address
touching upon the work of the Peace
Conference. Behind the questions
confronting the men at the table,
he declared, are the principles of
liberty. Behind these principles are
the principles of Luther.
Opening his address. Dr. Knubel
described Harrisburg as the "birth
place of the United Lutheran Church
in America." because the executive
hoard held regular sessions here.
Following the preliminaries, the first
meeting was. held in New York on
the day when this nation and other
nations were wild with joy over the
signing of an armistice. "The New
United Lutheran church was born
for the new age of the world," ho
Commenting upon the coming
j campaign Dr. Knubel said: "God has
I called upon us to fulfill our respon
sibility immediately. An appeal is
coming to you within the next few
weeks which I believe is God's call.
There is religious confusion in
Europe to-day. There is spiritual
[ confusion and suffering. There are
ichurches by the hundreds of thou
sands that have not been properly
led. To-day they are being thrown
on their own resources. Of the
Protestants in Europe more than
two-thirds are our brothers in Lu
theranism. There arc more Lutheran
in Russia than there are in the whole
1 Western hemisphere. There are Lu
therans among the Czecho-Slovaks. In
Bohemia, In the Baltic provinces
and even in poor, misguided Ger
many, and Finland is entirely Lu
theran. The day has come when we
must appreciate that there must be
a United Lutheran church of the
world and it must be established."
Following Dr. Knubel's inspiring
address, Victor Huasknecht played
as a violin solo Elgar's "Salute
d'Amour." The congregation sang "A
Mighty Fortress is our God," a hymn
written by Martin Luther, and the
Rev. J. A. W. Haas, president of
Muhlenburg College, spoke. He also
touched on the problems at the peace
table and gave an intensely inter
esting address. The Rev. Thomas
Reisch pronounced the benediction.
The Rev. J. Bradley Markward, pres
ident of the Harrisburg Conference
of the East Pennsylvania Synod pre
In the Zion Lutheian church at
the overflow meeting the Rev. H. K.
Lantz, president of the Harrisburg
Conference, Pennsylvania Minister
ium. presided. The Rev. R. 1.. Meis
enhelder pronounced the invocation,
and the Rev. H. S. Garner, led the
Scripture. The Rev. A. M. Stamets
offered prayer. Addresses were de
livered by both speakers of the main
meeting, the Zion Lutheran quartet
sang and the Rev. C. P. Lantsf pro
nounced the benediction.

C. Laurence Shepley Is
Guest at Farewell Dinner
A farewell dinner was tendered C.
Laurence Shepley at the Columbus
Hotel early Saturday morning by
members of the Patriot editorial staff
upon his retirement as managing
editor of that newspaper to enter the
insurance business. The dinner was
served after the paper was put to
press and it was near dawn when
the party broke up. Mr t Shepley, who
has been connected with the Phila
delphia North American, the Harris
burg Telegraph and the Patriot at
intervals for the past eight years
leaves the newspaper business to be
come associated with the Harrisburg
office of the New England Life, of
which A. A. Wert is manager. He Is
well known in Harrisburg and
throughout Central Pennsylvania,
and has been studying insurance for
some time under the tuition of Mr.
Wert. For several months he has
been connected with the Wert offices
and has been getting much valuable
practical experience.
Dean M. Hoffman, editor of the
Patriot, presented Mr. Shepley with
a handsome leather prospect case
and among those who responded to
•toasts were J. Douglas M. Royal,
Kenneth S. Thomas, Ross S. Hoff
man, Charles H. Bowers, Bernard L.

Fraternal Order Offers Splen
did Quarters to Na
tional Body
j Cathedral Hall, tlie home >f the lo
cal council. Knights of Columbus
may boon become club rooms for sol
diers at Marsh Run and Middletown,
under tentative provisions formulat
■ ed by the local organisation. No def
j inite announcement has yet been re
; eeived from the national body ns to
whether they will accept tho rooms
and make necessary renovations for
the soldiers' use.
Several weeks ago, representatives
of the national body got into com
munication with officials of the local
lodge with reference to the propo
sition. Favorable decision was made
by the members and notice of the
proffer was sent to the national of
ficials. but their wishes in the matter
have not yet been made known here.
Tentative arrangements for the
establishment of the club provides for
the sending here of two Knights of
Columbus secretaries, who would de
vote their entire time to the conduct
ing of the hall and work among the
men at the two camps. Certain reno
vations would necessarily have to be
made to the hall. At present there is
no heating system to raise the tem
perature of the water in the swim
i ining pool to a degree suitable for
bathing. This Is the principal change
that would be necessitated.
The bowling allies, the pool tables
and all other rooms would be in sat
isfactory condition for use by the sol
diers. All of them would be turned
over to the secretaries for the con
venience of the men. he Knights of
Columbus would continue to hold
meetings In their council rooms and
would also have the privilege of the
use of the social rooms.
