BAPTISTS WARN THEDEMOCRATS 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 people. 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 was unanimous. 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 as follows: Report 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 Baptist Convention. 4. Placing of greater emphasis on evangelism. 5. Postponement of proposals to change the jurisdiction of certain gen eral boards. 6. Decision to continue negotia tions looking toward securing com plete ownership and control of George Washington university at Washing ton, D. C. 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 ing his appreciation of the cordial co operation of the messengers in dis posing of the varied business matters, and pledging his best efforts to carry forward the work of the denomina tion. The presentation to the convention of several veteran ministers who have seen fifty years’ service for the Bap tist faith, was a feature of the last hour, which developed into a veritable love feast of cordiality and fraternal expression. Of its own volition, the resolutions committee, which had steadfastly re fused to approve various resolutions injecting the fundamentalist-modern ist controversy into the convention, brought in a resolution, which was unanimously adopted, naming a com mittee of seven Baptist leaders to con sider the advisability of formulating a statement of Baptist faith and doc trine for presentation at the 1925 meeting of the convention in Mem phis, Tenn. Committee Members. The members of this committee ave: Dr. E. Y. Mullins, I)r. L. R. Scarbor ough, Dr. C. P. Stealey, Dr. W. J. McGlothlin, Dr. S. M. Brown, Dr. E. C. Dargan and Dr. R. H. Pitt.
