The second annual Recognition
Dav program of the Fireside Schools,
which included the closing exercises
of the Fireside School Training
Classes for Christian Workers, was
a great success. It was held on
Thursday night, April 26th, In the
colored Y. M. C. A. before an audi
ence that taxed the seating capaci
ty of the auditorium to its limit.
Miss Ada F. Morgan, superintendent
of the Fireside Schools, presided.
The first number was a song by the
Training Classes, "Tennessee for Je
sus." The Scripture was read by
Rev. A. D. Hurt, the selection being
the 90th Psalm. Rev. H. A. Alfred,
pastor of Mt. Nebo Baptist Church,
offered prayer. Next came the roll
call of HOPE clubs with response
from each. Miss Grace M. Eaton
gave the report of the Women's
Training Class, which was followed
by a Bible drill and song by the
Class. Miss Alice A. Cushin re
ported the Young Women's Train
ing Class, the members of which

than those who lose- their lives
through tuberculosis, typhoid fever
and other diseases that are being vig
