"Adj. Gen. Henry Boyd, of the
A. Cadets, Nashville, Tenn. :
"Dear Sir: I regret to hear of the
death of my Sunday school simer

Mr. Cole was married to Mrs. Myrn

Harrison Cole, by this marriage.
Those who survive him are Mrs.

Sharp, who afterwards presided until
the officers were elected. Dr. Sbarr

In h;s own state Dr. Robinson is
regarded as one of the undisputed
leaders. Form ore than thirty years
he has been pastor of the First Bap
tist Church of Little Rock, which is
paid to be easily the largest congre
gation in the state of Arkansas.
For a number of years he was a
trustee of the Arkansas Baptist Col
lege, from which institution he grad
uated from the college as well as the
tiheo)gioal department. He is i at
present the president of the Progres
8've Baptist State Convention of the
state of Arkansas and a prominent
factor in the business world of the
Arkansas capitol. In speaking to a
Globe representative before leaving
the city, Dr. Robinson said:
"You may put--me down as an
apostle of the progressive ideas as
the Negro Baptists poe them. I be
lieve in eoinir forward and not back
ward. I believe in bulld'ng up
lather then tearing down. I am" riot
oiwosed to nr.v mnn who has snent
, his life in building ur an entenirle
or institution, even thoueh that eu-
' -terTirise or Institution mav not he
c-'-emted according to my personal
. liking.
"It i" onen thpt the fellow nn the
outside who has not bad to do -with
, the management of affairs of a par
ticular Institution knows noth'na
about what It takes to make that con
cern succeed, nnd vet that fel'ow
may criticise, and criticism Is eiv.
the very policy that has made the
institution a success. I am not en-,
. vlous. Fvervhodv in my state, knows
I have contributed in my feble wav
to whatever has been begun in Ar
kansas that would be for the better
ment ot the Negro, irrespective 'of
denomination, and that I have spent
the better pa'-t of my life sacriiicing
for my own denomination. Our state
work embraces every department of
our convention in Arkansas. It Is
standing solid with the progressive J
leaders in Tennessee and I mean by
that that they are supporting the Na
tional Baptist Publishing Board in
the operation of its plant. "Ve will
stand toy them as long as there is a
"pea in the dish. We are going to
bring the largest delegation to Nash
. ville In the history of Arkansas to
" attend the Sunday School Congress,
and then following this, we are -going
to carry a special train from
Arkansas to Atlanta. - I want to con
gratulate the people of Nashville for
the loyal support they havo given Dr.
- . Boyd and the Publishing Board."

Cole, of Nashville: Miss Susie Cole,
Mary Cole, Vina Holmes, sisters, of!
Nashville, H. E. Cole, Ernest Cole,
Charlie Mitchell, newphews, of j
of St. Louis. Mo., and Mr. WtuJ
Cole, of Louisville, Ky.
The funeral was held at Mt. Zion
Baptist Church Friday afternoon.
Many friends came to pay their last
tribute of re-oeet to the departed.
The church wa3 neirly filled at 2:00
o'clock, the time for the services at-.
Hved. Rev. J. A. Brown told in a;
ledas from the North Fifteenth Ave
nue Baptist Church, perhaps a hun
dred, marching, in s'ngle file led bv
their, pastor, Rev. A. W. Porter. An
they entered the church the congre
gation began to applaud, and beforo
they wore seated the cry of ""What's
the matter with the Fifteenth Ave
nue Church" and "What's the matter
with Porter" was taken up nnd for
about three minutes this was con
tinued. The chairman stated that
Talernacle Baptist will be known as
The S oux, which means "The
Traulilci-s." The Mt. Ne'io force Willi
be Chlpjewa. which, when inferpro'-i
ed means "The Fir.it, Best, or the I

The selecting of these names for
the various organized classes, wh'ch

with much applause. Chief Marshall
