Letter From Rev. T. Allen
to Baptist Courier.
Dear Dr. Cody:
We arrived here November 16th,
to take charge of our new work. Our
people have been most cordial and
kind in their welcome to us and we
are already beginning to feel at
home. On our arrival a goodly num
ber of the members met us at the
parsonage and did everything they
could for our pier*are and comfort.
We found that they had already un
packed and placed our furniture and
had filled our pantry with g^ood
. things to eat This has not yet stop
ped. We haven't words to express our
.appreciation of all this kindness. It
makes us want to serve these good
people with all our strength- and we
are trusting that God will make us
able to live up to that desire and that
the work will be blessed of him.
We have a church here with a
beautiful building and one that is
strong in membership and . good
works. It is thoroughly organized and
there is apparent a mind to work.
The young people impress one as be
ing interesting, active and aggressive.
This rejoeics the pastor's heart and
is a hopeful sign. This church has
been served by a line of strong men,
the effect of whose work abides. Our
prayer is that God will use us to
perpetuate the constructive work
that has been done here through the
The parsonage is one of the most
modern and convenient that we have
seen. It has water, lights, steam heat"
and every convenience. We are
charmed with it and will enjoy occu
pying it I am sur?. The Baptists of
Edgefield have a church and parson
age which are a credit to the town
and iii which they can take a just
We left a good church ad people
who were as loyal and devoted
friends to us as we could ever hope
for. It was a great struggle to decide
to give them up, especially sinee the
entire church, without a dissenting
vote, asked us to reconsider and stay
with them. We can never forget
them, their great-kindness and the
way they stood by us and gave us
richly of their sympathy and' love.
May the God of all Grace reward
them and send them a man after his
own heart. , ,
The doors are open and we will
be glad for you to come to see us in
our new home..

In order to arouse and organize
public sentiment throughout South
Carolina for greater efforts for the
total removal of illiteracy and the
upbuilding of the public schools, the
executive committee of the Citizens'
Educational Association of South
Carolina, the American Legion of the
State, and county and city school
trustees and superintendents are en
deavoring to have "American Educa
tional Week," December 4 to ll, ob
served in every county in the state.
The executive committee of the
Citizens' Educational Association of
South Sarolina, formed lastNIuly at
Spartanburg by several hundred cit
izens from all parts of the State, has
addressed a letter to every county
school superintendent, requesting
him to have the school district trus
tees of his county call together the
citizens on or about December 10 to
organize, a county branch of the Cit
izens' Educational Association. This
movement is in cooperation with the
circular recently issued by State Su
perintendent of Education John E.
Swearingen asking the school super
intendents to arrange an observance
in each county of "National Educa
All white citizens interested in the
improvement, of-education are cor
|dially invited to attend these meet
ings and enroll as members of the
Citizens' Educationad Association of
South Carolina, no membership fees
or contributions of money being re
quired. The Association is not one of
school teachers alone, but is primar
ily of, by and for citizens uncon
nected with the schools.
In each county the citizens assem
bled in these mass meetings are re
quested to petition the legislature of
South Carolina tb do three things at
its next session:
1. To create and appoint a com
mission to conduct a thorough edu
cational survey of the entire state.
2. To present to the people pro
posed amendments to the chapter on
education in the' State Constitution
which will clear the way for educa
3. To institute such tax reform
measures as will enable .the State to
make the public school system what
?t ought to be in every respect*
In order tb secure cooperation for
the superintendents and trustees in
working up meetings, the following
groups have been asked to partici
pate : The American Legion posts,
the alumni and alumnae of colleges
and universities, women's clubs, Ki
wanis and Rotary clubs, churches,
civic and fraternal organizations.
Members of these organizations are
asked to confer at once with the lo
cal school superintendent as to ar
ranging a meeting program, etc.
The following rough outline_ of
program for a meeting during "Na
tional Education Week" is suggested:
1. Explanatory address by the
county Superintendent or others
whom he may designate.
2. Enrollmen of members.
3. Topics to be presented by spe
(a) Education, the greatest
investment for community,
Stute and nation.
(b) The community's respon
sibility toward the school.
4. Discussion and decision by vote
on the three proposal of the executive
committee of the Citizens' Education
al Association of South Carolina out
5. Election of delegates to the
meeting of that association to be held
in Columbia during the legislature
time and place to be announced.
Twice as many delegates as" there are
representatives from the county in
the legislature should be elected.
6. Election of president, vice
president, secretary and executive
committee of county educational as
sociation^ , ..i. '? . ? .
It should b? distinctly understood
that this movement is not a drive for
subscriptions or contributions . of
money from citizens, but simply an
effort to organize^nd energize public
sentiment for a better educational
system in South Carolina.

gladly supplied by J. Rion McKissick,
