Download PDF for this date

An undisclosed number of rabbis were among the 145 clergymen graduated today from the Army Chaplain School at Fort Benjamin Harrison, Indiana, the War Department announced. It was explained that the Army does not reveal the number of graduates from each denomination. However, the War Department said that the three major faiths were represented.

The next session of the school will open Monday at Harvard University. Thirty of the last class have already left for their stations, and were not present at the exercises.
