ment and identify your belongings. Children who have
strayed from parents and are lost should be taken to this de-
partment. However, it is not to be viewed as a nursery.
Please look after your children, and keep them with you.

Please be considerate of others. Remember, seats may be
saved only for those traveling with you in the same vehicle,
living with you in the same home, or currently studying the
Bible with you. Please do not leave articles on seats around
you. Your cooperating in this regard will allow others to see
that those seats are available.

the convention arrangement, please report to this depart-
ment and you will be directed to where help is needed.
