-Two very profitable "Junior institutes'' were recently held under the auspices of the committee on junior work of the Pittsburgh District Luther League, one in Pittsburgh and the otner in Rochester. The following themes were discussed:

1. How to make a successful beginning in the fall.

2. How to make the ensuing year one of profit and interest to the Juniors.

3. How the District League may extend and increase the efficiency of the local Junior organization.

So interesting and profitable were these institutes that it was decided that others should be held during the year. It was also decided that Junior rallies should be held in different places in the District where the various Junior organizations could attend in a body.

Another rally and picnic was held on July 20 at Garfield Park, when several addresses were made by the Leaguers.

KANSAS -The Luther League of St. Mark's Church, of Emporia, has maintained a rest tent every year at the Chautauqua grounds. Here Lutherans leave their packages, meet their friends and are at home before and after entertainments.

Mr. L. T. Bang, the manager of this, the largest Chautauqua in Kansas, is a staunch Lutheran, an active member of St. Mark's, always seeking to advance the interests of the Lutheran Church at home and abroad.

The two or three thousand people who attended the Chautauqua daily for ten days know that there is a Luther League and a Lutheran church in Emporia, for the Leaguers never fail to take advantage of every opportunity to popularize their own church.

Luther's coat of arms occupied the center of the large electric sign on the tent, and could easily be seen from any part of the Chautauqua grounds.

The Emporia League derives great benefit from having a rest tent during Chautauquas, and suggests that other Leagues might take advantage of this novel method of making the Luther League a bigger and more active organization in the world.
