The GGtli annual session of the South
ern Baptist convention convened iu
Chattanooga last Thursday for one of
the most epochal meetings in its'his
tory. Three millions members were
represented by 5,000 registered dele
gates. The YV. M. U. of the South met
at the same time and with the visitors
the city was tilled to overflowing with
the 10,000 Baptists from country,, vil
lage and city.
Dr. Edgar Young Mullins, of Ken
tucky, the world’s leading theologian,
was elected president of the conven
tion ; Ex-Gov. B. F. Pankey, of New
Mexico; Dr. J. It. Hobbs, of Alabama;
Dr. Henry Allen Tupper, of Washing

C. Moore, of Nashville, and Henry Bur
nett, of Macon, Ga., were elected secre
Addresses of welcome were delivered
by Dr. John YV. Inzer, of the First Bap
tist church and Mayor Chambliss. Re
sponse was made by Dr. W. S. Wiley,
of Oklahoma. Than Dr. Wiley the
South has no more witty nor eloquent
speaker and he held his crowd spell
bound as he spoke of the joy of the del
egates upon the meeting in the city.
Dr. H. L. YVinburn, of Arkansas,
preached the annual sermon on “Walk
ing by Faith.” It was heard by over
7,000 people, and was of such superb
character that it was printed in full in
the religious papers and many of the
secular papers of the South.
Thirteen millions dollars were paid
in during the year and glowing reports
were made by representatives oi ail
the mission fields, colleges, orphanages
and work in general done by the va
Five cities qualified, out of the entire
south to become hosts of the convention
for next year: Atlanta, Jacksonville,
Houston, Kansas City and St. Louis.
Time fails to tell of the really great
speeches of the convention. Dr. Ager
spoke on “Stewardship,” at the Chris
tian church, one of the ablest discus
sions of this subject the writer ever
heard. Sunday the pulpits of all the
churches, white and black, of the citj
were filled by visitors. The writer
heard Geo. W. McDaniel, of the historic
old First church, Richmond, Va., at
theJMyst Presbyterian church. The pas
te. Jw this great church has been in
Chattanooga 47 years, a good object
lesson for some Baptists.
In the afternoon, some 10,000 people
thronged the Billy Sunday Tabernacle
to hear Dr. liushbrooke, of London,
tell of Baptist work throughout the
world. He is Baptist commissioner for
Europe representing all the Baptists of
the world. Dr. George W. Truitt
thrilled the soul of his audience as he
told of the mighty opportunities in Eu
AC nigVt Dr. James Whitcomb
Brougher, of Los Angeles, Cal., preach
ed. He is one of the leading preachers
o’ the world, was formerly pastor of
t&e First Church of Chattanooga, and
has bo peer in the American pulpit to
day. He spoke on “The Higher Soci
ety,’l It was a gem from start to fin
ish. His style, ills address and his
voice are among the -hings which keep
his audience’s attention, but his muse
remarkable trait is his superb sense of
humor. Asa s'.ory teller he has few
equals, and his sermon was replete
with humor. Dr. Brougher would tell
a funny story, get his audience laugh
ing, and then, before they had time to
experience a change of feeling, would
drive home the strong points of his
text. During his discourse he told a
story of a negro who had applied to a
motion picture company for a job and
had been hired as an extra to take part
in the filming of a jungle scene, suppos
edly staged iu darkest Africa. The di
rector expla ine<l the part the negro was

do is run through this cage and when
this gets after you—we’ll have him
stirndf up—you continue to run with
him after you.” The negro said, “Boss

4,000 CARS A DAY
Ford is building cars at full speed.
And, according to an official statement
from the factory at Detroit, the de
mand for Ford cars and trucks still ex
ceeds the output, despite the fact that
anew high level of production has
By the tirst of May the figures rep
resenting daily production were in the
neighborhood of 4,000 a day, so the May
schedule was set at 101,125 cars and
trucks, sot including the output of the
Ford Canadian plant or any of the
foreign assembling plants. The out
put mounted daily; May 12th brought
fourth 4092, the greatest number that
have been produced in one day so far
this year. Since the month has 25
working days, present indications point
to anew high record.
A comparison of Ford products fig
ures for 1920 and 1921 discloses the
fact that for April, 1921, the output
was greater by 34,514 than for the cor
responding month of a year ago. The
output for May, 1921, will probably
overshadow May, 1920, by between fif

let me see that lion,” and when the
harmless old animal was brought out
the negro backed out of his bargain,
saying, “I don’t like the looks of that
lion.” The director, trying to placate
tin' negro and assure him that there
was no danger from the animal, said,
“Now Sam, this lion is thoroughly do
mestic. He was born iu this country
and is as harmless as a kitten. YVhy,
lie was raised on a bottle.” The negro
scratched his head and said, “Boss, if
its all the same to you, I don’t want
that job. I was also raised on a bottle,
but I sho’ eats meat now.”
Dr. Brougher’s pet enemy is a hypo
crite. In discussing this type of church
evil the speaker turned squarely to his
audience and shouted: “There are
among you men who are too conscien
tious to shave themselves on Sunday,
but they are not too conscientious to
shave their neighbor’s note on Monday;
there are those among you who wouldn’t
stoop to blacken your own shoes on the
Sabbath but you spend the rest of the
week in blackening your neighbor’s rep
utation ; there are those among you who
pray publicly on Sunday and ‘prey’ on
your neighbors the rest of the time.

J. W. Summerour Pays
Fine; Saves Customers
Mr. J. W. Summerour, Winder's live
dry goods merchant, is always on the
lookout to serve his customers. And he
knows how to reach the people of this
section. He has found out that The
Winder News reaches the public and
that the people read it, too. Last
week he gave his customers 15 pounds
of sugar for SI.OO. While he was busy
waiting on the customers that flocked
to his store to take advantage of the
bargains he was offering somebody
made the complaint that he ought not
to be allowed to sell sugar without pay
ing a grocery license. The marshal of
the city waited on Mr. Summerour and
stated that he would either have to
stop selling sugar or pay the license.
Mr. Summerour promptly paid the li
cense and continued to sell his custom
ers 15 pounds of sugar for SI.OO. Jim j
Summerour can always be depended on
to take care of his customers.
On Saturday and Monday he will
give 25 cts. to .each person who cuts out
his ad on the last page of this issue
and brings it to him. We wonder how
many people there are in Barrow coun
ty who really want to make a quar
ter without any trouble. Cut out the ad
and take it in. We are going after ours
and will met you there. If Jim Sum
merour lives up to his promise we know
of one quarter he loses.
