THE NASHVILLE GLOBE, FRIDAY, JUNE 14, 1S07.
ive Sunday school worker. He gave
the audience the benefit of some of his
experiences and some of his knowl
edge of children as church workers.
His was an eloquent plea for closer
and better attention to the children.
Mr. Crenshaw said, "If the white boy
and white girl need the best teachers,
(he best instructors and the best sur
roundings to make them good, our
boys and our girls need equally as
much. They are children, they are
human and they assimilate; thus it
behooves us as parents and instruct
ors to guard every condition and ad
vance every opportunity to better the
instruction as well as the instructor,
The fact that the child of to-day in the
Sunday school will be the church of
to-morrow, has already been forcibly
Impressed upon you, and this move
ment to-day is calculated to bring the
best results in future years." "I have
known the manager," continued Mr
Crenshaw, "from his boyhood days,
and certainly pride myself as being
one of his early Instructors. If he has
accomplished anything, I feel proud
and I am certainly interested in every
thing that he undertakes."
After this address the manager an
nounced that the program would con
elude with the singing of one of Mr.
Itosborough's compositions from Ce
lestlal Showers, No. 2. The entire au
dience joined in rendering this song,
The echoes of the music rang: through'
out the park, filling the air with .the
strains of music produced by the
voices of the Christian workers who
had gathered to honor this occasion
The benediction was pronounced by
Itev. James Slaughter. Then the chil
dren, In their glee, with their teach
. ers and superintendents, strolled In
every direction through the park;
some climbed the hills, resting be
neath the tall, stately shade trees
others found their way to the merry
go-round, while hundreds seated them
selves on the large porch of the Club
House. It was seven o'clock in the
evening before the crowd left the
park. All are of the opinion that the
first Union Children's Day In Nash
ville wa3 a success.
