this meeting a record-breaker in the
history of the organization in the:
State, announces that the program is

addressed league conferences in the

of the few scholars of the Southern
Methodist church. The Rev. C. G.
Hounshell, missionary to Korea, will
also be present and enthuse the mis
sionary spirit as never before. ProfL
