WHEN Pastor Woolley heard about our desire to call such a con-
ference, he said, "The Moody Church will be glad to offer its
hospitality to this conference." Therefore I think we should
express our gratitude to him, and through him to the Moody Church and

toward these expenses. But now we have to go back again to Phila-
delphia. For three weeks the students have slept and have lived as
inexpensively as possible. We found a place not far from the taber-
nacle, and they went into a basement and slept there; the first night
they had no blankets and no pillows, but the Lord we had, and so
it was all right. Now this conference comes to a close. These fifty
men are only half of the number of students staying at the Russian
