Shrewd, enterprising Aimee Semple McPherson last week consummated a promise: she obtained a charter from the State of Illinois to establish in Chicago headquarters for her proposed "Navy of the Lord," evangelical organization to be modeled after the Salvation Army. Her tabernacles are to be called "Four Square Gospel Lighthouses," are to have towers imitative of the U. S. Coast Guard lighthouses. Mrs. McPherson, stout-hearted against mockery, is to call herself "Admiral." Her underlings will assume naval titles, naval-like costumes.
