Lecture to Bible Students
William A. Baker, the well
known lecturer for the Internation
al Bible Students Association, will
speak at 7:45 Sunday night in the
M. w. A. nail, tins city, on me
subject: "Where arc the Dead?"
This promises to be an interesting
discussion of this topic from a strict
ly Bible view-point. Amid the
confusing sounds of clashing creeds
and human theories it is spiritually
refreshing to hear a clear and sim
ple message from God's word, an
swering the many perplexing ques
tions suggested by such a theme.
Mr. Baker is not only reported to
be a thorough student of the sacred
Scriptures, speaking with authori
ty on Bible interpretation, but, ad
ditionally, presents his arguments
with exceptional power and ability.
Do you know that 90,000 people
die every 24 hours, more than one
a second? Where are they? How
must they spend eternity? Don't
fail to hear this sermon. All seats
free, not even a collection lifted.
