His Art of Getting Out of Things as Topic of Sermon
The name of Houdini, who has been a leadliner at a local theater this week will figure i the sermon at the Genesee Street Baptist Church, to-morrow morning, where the pastor, Rev. Clark, will talk on "Houdini and the Art of Getting Out of Things." The pastor, however, insures that he will reveal none of the vital points of the art, but declares that the sermon will be entirely spiritual.
