Sunday Night at the Baptist
Sunday was an all day rainy
season and it seemed unfortunate
for so many good things were in
store at the various churches. But in
cases like this we must agree to the
saying that "Whatever is, is right."
Those wno ventured were fully re
paid for the bravery they manifest
ed. Sunday evening the three Mc
Cravy brothers, Frank, Jack and
James gave a most delightful and up
lifting sacred concert. Mr. Frank Mc
Cravy is a singer of the Baptist Home
Board Evangelistic Service and his
brother Jack, assisted with the bass.
James McCravy is a senior at Fur
man, singing and also giving some
beautiful solo and obligato music on
the violin, being a violinist of dis
tinction. The congregation was en
tranced for an hour or more by the
trios, duets and solos and violin mu
sic by these three musicians and by
the beautiful voice of Miss Miriam
Norris who sang in a duet with Mr.
Frank McCravy and a solo "0 Dry
Those Tears" with pipe organ accom
paniment and violin obligato.
Mr. James McCravy was late, ar
riving on the 9 o'clock train, but Dr.
Lee and the ingenious brothers very
successfully kept the congregation
waiting by entertaining them with
a most edifying talk by the pastor
and some congregational singing be
fore the concert began.
At the close of the concert Mr. J.
L. Mims arose and gave expression
to the appreciation of the people for
the visitors' presence and benefit
derived from the occasion. It is one
of the paradoxes of the world that in
the place where applause can be most
worthily bestowed it is often with
