6ECRETARY GRAY OF HOME
BOARD SETS OUT SITUATION
$12,000.000 IS GOAL SOUGHT
This Sum Will Be Laid Aside From
Baptist 75 Million Campaign For
Work Among Negroes. Foreign
ers and Other Projects.
While $20.000,000 of the $75,000 000
to be raised in cash and five year
pledges by the Southern Baptists be
tween now and December 7th will go
to foreign missions, $12,000,000 will be
devoted to missions at home, it has
been officially announced. Home mis
sions is regarded by the Baptists as
quite as essential as foreign missions,
the larger sum being set aside for the
latter cause by reason of the larger
field to be covered-practically the
DR. B. D. GRAY,
Of Atlanta, Ga., Secretary of Hom?
Missions for the Southern Baptisl
"Twelve million dollars is a largi
figure when compared with whatVwe
have been doing heretofore," Dr. D. B.
Gray, corresponding secretary of the
Home Mission Board at Atlanta, de
clares, "but it is very reasonable in
comparison with our ability and small
in comparison with the needs of the
Home Mission fields."
Setting forth the particular obliga
tion which confronts America since
the war has transferred the '-e-ter ol
education from Europe to this coun
try, Dr. Gray says: "This brings a
new day of opportunity and responsi
bility to our people. Our schools and
colleges must be strengthened and en
dowed. They must be made thorough
ly christian in fact as well as in "io
ory. In this way we are to counteract
the vicious ideals of Germany and her
allies in the world war. Our youth
must be trained on proper lines as tc
religion and ethics. This can be don?
best in our denominational schools."
Some of the educational institutions
fostered by the Home Mission Board
are the forty mountain schools, serv
ing 3,000,000 residents of the South
living in mountainous^ territory whera
public high schools are lacking. Fully
,110.000,000 could be used to advantage
in strengthening the equipment and
teaching force of these schools, it le
estimated, so great is the need.
Another demand of the home fiel?
is the 4,000 church organizations in
the South which need assistance in
the erection of suitable houses of wor
ship, while more pressing still is the
problem created by the presence in
^he South J 10,000,000 negroes. Speak
ing of the negro problem, Dr. Gray
says: "They are of more vital con
cern to us than any hundred millions
'of people anywhere else in the world.
^Socially, politically^ economically and
religiously they constitute our great
est task and we neglect them at our
own peril as well as their infinite loss.
Racial relations are tense and the sit
uation calls upon Southern Baptists
ipr a worthy program in behalf of 'he ?
religious uplift of our brothers in !
black. We must lead them in san?
missionary and 'evangelistic work and
likewise in the development of their
religious life on sane and helpful linea.
We need a large company of the best,
wisest and strongest negro evangelists
and teachers v/ho shall help us to lift
up their race and make them worthy
and worth while as Chrtstian citizens."
That work among the foreigners in
the homeland offers the best and most
economical opportunity for missionary
labors among them anywhere, is the
declaration of the Home Mission lead
ers. These foreigners are in the
ffelds, mines and factories and are a
vital part of our civilization. This
worl; among the foreigners not only
gives them the christian religion, but
makes them more contented and bet
ter American citizens, it is pointed
Great hopes fof the future of tne
churches in the South are held out In
the enlarged program of evangelism
and enlistment which the Baptist 75
Million Campaign will make possible.
The Home Board hopes to win from
300,000 tc 500.000 people in the South
who are not christians during the pa
nod of the campaign.

Your Ginning Solicited
During the summer I spent a considerable sum on my gin
nery putting everything in the best possible order, adding sev
eral new and up-to-date features. Our five gins of the most
modern type enable us to gin and pack about 50 bales a day,
giving good sample and ginning seed clean.
From the time we started everything works in the best of
order. I have engaged Mr. Harry Culbreath, who has proven
himself to be a very capable man, to operate my gins this sea
son. Bring us your cotton. We guarantee satisfaction. My
prices are the same as last season. I bought bagging and ties
early in the summer before the advance, and can furnish them
at the old price.
I pay the highest market price for seed or will exchange
meal and hulls for seed.
Your patronage solicit.
