Dr. R. G. Lee's Move.
We are sorry to see that Dr. R. G.
Lee, pastor of the First Baptist

means, the First Baptist church of
New Orleans will get one of the most
popular preachers in South Carolina,
one who in several important pastor
ates in this state has been unusually
successful. During his short pastorate '
at Chester he has added 384 members
to the church roll and increased the
Sunday s?hool 50 per cent; also a
$40,000 Sunday school structure was i
launchd w hich will be completed in 1

will find in Dr. Lee a choice spirit as <
well as a popular preacher.-Bap- '

Mr. Upshaw's Tribute at the
Methodist Church to Two
of Edgefield's Sons.
Standing with uncovered head be
fore historic Edgefield and the ex
ceptional plentitude of her brilliant
sons'and daughters, judges, govern
ors, senators and preachers of the
everlasting gospel of God, I am glad
to find myself walking today in the
boyhood footprints of two gifted and
distinguished young Georgians,
James and John Boykin, whose abil
ity and character have carried them
to the forefront in Georgia's politi
cal and civic life.
Senator Boykin is now a whole
some leader in our higher lawmaking
body, while John Boykin has be
come nationally known in his bril
liant work as Solicitor General in At
lanta. Either is grandly capable of
making a good governor, and as
Georgia has a way of crowning bril
liant solicitors with gubernatorial
honors because of able and heroic
court-room leadership, there is no
telling how soon it may be said that
rare and radiant old Edgefield has
furnished a governor for Georgia.
