THE ASSOCIATION was formed in 1925 by the late Captain Danny. At the present time it has a roll-call of 8,000 members, who are known as Chums. They are of all ranks, from Field-Marshals to Privates and Nurses, the condition of joining being that candidates must be in possession of the Mons Star and Bar which denotes that they were under enemy fire between August 5 and November 22, 1914.
The aims and objects of the Association are to maintain the loyal spirit and comradeship shown by officers and men of that Little Army which bore the brunt of the Battle of Mons, Le Cateau, the Marne, the Aisne, and the first Battle of Ypres.
Mons men, and women, who have not joined the Association, but would like to do so, are invited to write to the Honorary Secretary, Mr. F. Hobbs , 324, Devonshire Road, Forest Hill, London, S.E.23, who will be pleased to hear from them and will give them full particulars.

'Rulers-3, Frederick Temple '
By the Rev. S. C. CARPENTER , D.D.,
Master of the Temple
IN 1830 an English boy, who had been born in Santa Maura, came to England with his parents, and his new home was a farm in Devon. His father went abroad again and died, and little Frederick Temple was sent to Blundell's School, Tiverton. In due course he won a scholarship at Balliol. One of the trustees, meeting him, said : ' Temple, I cannot say what you are going to be, but this I am sure of, that if you live long enough, you will be one of the greatest men in England.' Temple lived to be the second greatest headmaster of Rugby, Bishop of Exeter, Bishop of London, and Archbishop of Canterbury.
He was yet another great churchman to come under the influence of the Oxford Movement. Oxford also stirred in him a pity for the oppressed. Mill and factory hands were then doing a twelve-hour day for a miserable wage ; children of eight years old and under were employed in the mines ; agricultural labourers were crushed by poverty, isolation, and helplessness. That sympathy for the poor marked his life ; his work on the Schools' Enquiry Commission marked the beginning of a new epoch in education.
