For what is believed to be the first time in the history of the organization here, the Salvation Army has called upon a Jew to occupy a chair in its Southern Training College for officers located in this city.

The lecturer is Edward M. Kahn, director of the Federation of Jewish Charities and state welfare worker, who has been invited to deliver a series of weekly talks on “The Philosophy and Practice of Social Work.”

The local training college of the Salvation Army is one of four located throughout the country, and is made up of students from fifteen southern states.
