Dr. J. L. Mann, of Greensboro, N.

noon session. He spoke on missions
and the part that the laymen should
take in that and other lines of church
activity. The laymen's share in the
missionary activity of tho church was
particularly emphasized by the
speaker. As a reminder of the lack
ot interest In mission work that is
taken by the churches, the speaker
stated that there was only a per
capita expenditure of two and three
quarter cent- by the Methodists of
the South for missions during the
past year. Tho speaker concluded
his address to the laymen with a
statement of the reason for the lack
of Interest In Hie church work

said that there was no place in
church provided for them.

photographers, and more than 20
general assistants, secretaries and
The steamer sailed at .'1.10 o'clock
-one hour and li) minutes lalor than
the scheduled sailing hour. Such de
lay, however, ls not unusual, and in
this case it was caused largely by the
late arrival of 15 members of the
Eord party, as well as the large,
crowd which thronged the ship to bid
farewell to various members of the
Heyan Cave "Godspeed."
Wm. J. Bryan spent some time on
the ship bidding "Godspeed," as he
termed it, to Ford and the party.
Thos. A. Edison was another of those
who called on Mr. Ford after the lat
ter had boarded the steamer.
"There is somo chance for the mis
sion to succeed," wild Mr. Bryan;
"that ls all I care to say now, except
that 1 wish them very good fortune."
Two Ltargo Wl?te Doves.
All of the saloons and many of the
cabins on the Bteamer were decorated
with palms, ferns, flowers, flats and
streamers representing the national
colors of about 17 countries. The

Two large white doves which had
been carefully mounted, and bearing
olive branches, were suspended from
the ceiling of the main saloon and ex
cited considerable comment.
Henry Ford boarded thc st cn nier at
1.05 o'clock, accompanied by several
friends and three policemen. The
latter held the crowd back while Ford
posed for a score ol moving picture

tographers. Ford carried a tattered
American Hag, which he waved willi
one hand, while he repeatedly doffed
bis hat to the cameras.
Some ol* Ute Envoys.
Of the Hovernors invited, so far as
