Way, General Secretary.
Each Sunday Sc ool in Pickens Coun
ty is entitled to send one delegate for
every fifty persons enrolled as/officers,
teachers and scholars. In appointing
delegates, try to get those who. will
promise to attend.
May we not hope that eac , delegate
will bring a pencil and note-bk, and
write down every helpful thing sugeest
ed by the speakers?
Pastors are urged to attends and all
who do so will be official delegates.
Generally speaking, pastors getr about
8 5per 'cent. of their church member
ship through the Suiday Scho'ol,.and
about 15 per cent. from all other sources.
Should they not give the more attention
to this most prQlific field?
If desired by the delegates, Mr. J. M.
Way, General Secretary of the State
Sunday School Association, will con
duct special conferences on Teacher
Training, Adult Bible Class Work, or
other lines of Sunday School Work, at
the close of each afternoon session.
Homes will be provided for all dele
gates who notify the County President,
Rev. N. G. Ballenger, who will turn all
names, sent him by mail, over to the
local committee on entertainment.
