Figure WALTER MANSELL SUBJECTS POPULAR : The Other Fellow; Every Man a Statesman. PATRIOTIC : Heroes of Faith. TEMPERANCE : The Key with a Hole in It. Y. M. C. A. SUNDAY : What is the Truth; Nature and Skepticism; The Divinity of Christ. ANNOUNCEMENT F ROM the beginning of his ministry ten years ago the success of Walter Mansell as a platform speaker of unusual ability has been established. Wherever located, it was a noted fact that his audiences were always among the largest in the city. Among his strong points, is his ability to draw men, his average audiences being fully fifty per cent. men. As a noted lecturer once put it when looking over one of his evening audiences, I have seen nothing like this in Ohio. He has been repeatedly called upon to deliver addresses before schools, colleges and orders, upon patriotic, philanthropic and temperance occasions. As a lecturer, Walter Mansell entertains, instructs, pleases. All newspaper reports speak of him as being eloquent, dramatic and polished. Of a studious nature, his lectures are intended to make one think and yet are told in such beautiful, rythmic language as to appeal to the esthetic nature of the audience, and are so largely mixed with true humor as to highly entertain. As a manager of lecture courses for a number of years, he made a close and critical study of those elements in the life of lecturers which put them in first place on the lyceum platform and has endeavored to profit from these in his own work. COMMENTS (SALEM DAILY HERALD, June 12th, 1905.) An immense crowd was gathered at the High School Auditorium last evening to listen to the annual Baccalaureate Address to the Senior Class, as delivered by Rev. Walter Mansell. He chose for his subject, What is Truth? and tried to impress upon the members that Truth is sacred: that it is essential and absolutely necessary in a successful life. Truth is supreme in everything, and this idea was carried out in a manner replete in thought, and profitable to the graduates, who, on leaving school could choose no better motto than Truth. The address was listened to by the large audience with unusual interest throughout. Clintonville, Ohio. I have heard Walter Mansell deliver his lecture on The Other Fellow. He held the undivided attention of his hearers to the end. His style is direct and lively; his message is clear and full of interest. I can conscientiously recommend him as a lecturer, to any intelligent audience, and I am sure that any one would feel as well repaid as I did for listening to his pleasing address. W. S. JENNINGS, High School Principal. (PAN HANDLE NEWS, Wellsburg, W. Va.) Rev. Walter Mansell, formerly of this city, delivered an eloquent and inspiring lecture last evening on the theme, The Other Fellow. Always a favorite in the city the large audience was an expression of appreciation for the former pastor. Only the strongest words of commendation were given by those present. Rev. Mr. Mansell has a style of address which is very individual and yet very pleasing. COMMENTS Columbus, Ohio, April 30th, 1907. The address of Mr. Walter Mansell before our Men's meeting was appreciatively received. The subject was happily chosen, appealing strongly to the civic sentiment characteristic of the times. It was handled in a straightforward, simple way and evinced an earnest realization of the individual's and the community's needs. Mr. Mansell throws into his speaking a personality that is genuine, thoughtful and wholesome. He is swayed by his thought and responds to its appeal with fluency of utterance, expressiveness of countenance and freedom of motion. He does not assume the attitude of a spell-binder, but holds and helps his hearers by giving manly, sincere expression to truth that their deeper instincts and the spirit of the times have prepared them to receive. S. A. KEEN, Director of Religious Work, Y. M. C. A. Bethany, W. Va., April 26th, 1907. TO WHOM THIS MAY CONCERN: Rev. Walter Mansell, of Columbus, Ohio, delivered his lecture, The Other Fellow, in the Chapel of Bethany College. The lecture gave entire satisfaction. The student body was interested and helped by the attractive presentation of common sense truths. Rev. Mansell is sure to please. Very truly, T. E. CRAMBLET, President. Columbus, Ohio, May 2d, 1907. We count ourselves fortunate in having had Rev. Walter Mansell to speak to our men both at the building and at the shops. He has a message for men that is well received as it is well delivered. Yours sincerely, E. DOW BANCROFT, Gen'l Sec'y Railway Y. M. C. A.
