The people are not willing to accept
changes slowly, but want everything
done overnight This is especially true
in the political field. The radical ele
ment want immediate self government
and separation from England, while the
moderates are endeavoring to work out

officials. Bishop Smith predicted that

herself owing to illiteracy, as there are
not enough leaders in the nation to prop

95 per cent of the 300.000,000 population
cannot read and write, he said.'
There has been such a turning to
Christianity recently that it is impos
sible for the church to keep up with the
demands for schools, churches, teachers
and preachers. In some cases 15-year-old
high school boys who have but a lim
ited knowledge of the Bible, are being
used as supply preachers on Sundays.
Bishop Smith said the work of the
church is not confined to the teaching
of religion. Schools for teaching of
trades to help meet the "need of a new
day In India," and "to train the people
to handle the problems they will have to
face,! are also being conducted. In
these schools the church is teaching the
carpenter, blacksmith, machine maker
and leather tanning trades, and giving
instruction to farmers, commercial etu
dents, prospective political leaders, doc
tors and nurses.

east of the Mississippi river and north

Labors' Delegates
Meet With Legion;
Benefits Expected
(Bj Catted Hewi)
Indianapolis, InrL, Jan. 20. Much im
portance fa attached to the action of
President Samuel Gompers of the Amer
ican Federation of Labor, in sending a
delegation of prominent labor men to .
attend a meeting of the American
Legion here Friday.
In a message to Hanford McNider,
commander of the legion, Gompers ex
pressed a hope that "out of the meeting
will come a thorough understanding of
the hopes and aspirations of both organizations."
"The representatives who will meet
you are imbued with the same thoughts
as myself, and I am anticipating with
the greatest confidence a happy outcome
of the conference," he stated.
The cooperation of labor men with
the officials of the legion is construed
as a step toward a settlement of charges
that the legion is antagonistic to organ
ised labor, and is the first move toward
cooperation on the part of either organ
ization, it is stated.
The labor delegation was chosen from
the miners, carpenters, teamsters and
barbers, headed by E. F. McGrady, legis
lative committeeman of the federation.
