LEADING SEMI-WEEKLY OF
TO WOMAN’S CLUB
Four years of service as President
of the Lawrenceville Woman’s Club
have been completed. It has been
four years of development, achieve
ment, happiness, for all who have
carried forward the program of ad
vancement which has put our club
among the women's organizations
working for the betterment of life.
As president, it has been my privi
lege to serve the Woman’s Club, with
the exception of the time of my ill
ness with my entire strength.
Always, it has been my» pleasure
to respond to every call for advice
or aid and I have felt that the loyal,
ty and cooperation of the members
of the club and the beautiful spirit
of sacrifice always shown in our un
dertakings were my inspirations.
The entertainment or the Ninth
District of Federation of Women’s
Clubs, will bring to a climax the
strenous work of the past year and
I am sure will place our club before
the eyes of the whole state of Geor
gia. Our membership has increased
each year and we feel that we have
had apart in helping the Kiwanis
Chib carry on its splendid work, by
our spirit of cooperation.
We have the distinction of moth
ering the only Junior Club in the
Ninth District, which is being spon
sored by Mrs. T. A. Smith, one of
our club members.
A beautiful avenue of trees is one
of our best gifts to the town, and
when we view the beautiful new
school building we like to feel that
we helped to put across the bond is
sue that made it possible.
A rest room in the central section
of town Is maintained by this club,
which has meant so much to the
Tallulah Falls school, the Federa
tion's own child, and which is locat
ed in the Ninth District, has had a
large support from us, having sent
SIOO.OO, besides a supply of beauti
ful towels only very recently.
The library in our own school was
given $35.00 and a $25.00 set of
books, besides many other volumes.
Our chib room in tbe Kiwanis
building is being equipped.
It has been our pleasure to pre
seat many out of town speakers, and
we have appreciated and found use
for much.home talent. Our ministers
always being so gracious to respond
to our calls in our various programs,
on Literature, Music, Health, Home
Economics, Education, Library Ex
tension, Forestry, etc.
The Elson Art Exhibit, which was
partly sponsored by our club, was
an inspiration to the town. A hand

Our music has been unusually in

an interest in beautiful flowers.
Tree planting has been stressed
and large numbers have been plant

to make this tbe ‘‘Crepe-Myrtle-Dog

that have a historical significance in
the town’s history are being preserv

President Coolidge himself made an
eleventh hour effort to stem the tide

to sustain the president.
The bill provides for paid-up 20-

Atlanta, Ga., May 19.—Sounding a
warning to the democratic party that
the “solid south” will be broken and
many southern states will swing into
the republican column in the forth
coming presidential election if a “wet”
democratic candidate is nominated,
the Southern Baptist Convention
closed its sixty-ninth annual session
here Saturday night with a ringing
declaration of principles that encom
passed not only the national political
situation, but economic and civic prob
lems now confronting the American
The pronouncement, regarding the
poltical outlook was contained in the
report of the social service commis
sion, presented by Dr. A. J. Barton,
chairman of the commission af.d gen
eral superintendent of Baptist mis
sions in Missouri. The report was re
ceived with applause and its reading
was punctuated by “amens” from the
thousands of messengers representing
eighteen southern states. Its adoption
Amplifying the report as it related
to the presidential situation, Dr. Bar
ton gave out the following statement:
“Emphasizing the paragraph in
the report of the commission on social
service which deals with the question
of the presidential year, I would give
it as my mature and deliberate judg
ment that the constituency of the
Southern Baptist Convention of ten
million people and other southern
democrats will not support for the
presidency a wet candidate.
“If the democrats are at all wise,
they will not nominate a wet. If they
lominate a wet and the republicans a
dry, it will inevitably mean that the
solid south will be broken and a num
ber of southern states will swing into
the republican column.
Warning to Democrats.
“It has sometimes been said that
you can always depend upon the dem
ocrats to play the fool. They will
certainly play the fool this time if
they nominate a wet in the approach
ing national convention."
The presentation of the social ser
vice commission-report was one of the
outstanding events of' the ffiur-dav
session, during the course oi which
many matters of vital importance to
the denomination were considered.
The definite major accomplishments of
the sixty-ninth meeting of the con
vention may be briefly summarized
1. Decision to launch a campaign
this fall to raise $7,500,000 to finance
denominational activities in 1925.
2. Pluns for an intensive effort to
conclude the $75,000,000 campaign by
January 1, 1925, and carry out the
financial program of the five-year
period now drawing to a close.
3. Approval of a religious pro
gram giving greater recognition to
rural churches, which constitute al
most 90 per cent of the Southern
4. Placing of greater emphasis on
5. Postponement of proposals to
change the jurisdiction of certain gen
6. Decision to continue negotia
tions looking toward securing com
plete ownership and control of George
Washington university at Washing

The concluding session Saturday
night was marked by a demonstration
given Dr. George W. McDaniel, newly
elected president of the convention,
who delivered a brief address express

operation of the messengers in dis
