NASHVILLS A CITY OF OPPORTUNITY THE LEADING NECRO JOURNAL IN TENNESSEE.
NASHVILLE, TENN., FRIDAY. SEPTEMBER 11. 1917.
NATIONAL BAPTIST CONVENTION
CLOSES 37TH ANNUAL SESSION,
A, AND. I. STATE NOR
MAL SCHOOL OPENING.
Atlanta, Georgia A throng With Enthusiastic
Delegates and Visitors Constructive
Policy Carried Out.
The A. anil I. State Normal School
will open Monday. September 24th,
with the largest anil most efficient
faculty in the history of the school.
Present indications are that there
will be the largest attendance at the
school, and everything looks bright
(or a very successful school term.
Returning delegates from the 37th i Christian standard of the ministry by
anual session of the National Baptist
Convention which has Just closed in
Atlanta Monday, report that it was
the most harmonious and most large
' ly attended in the history of the con
vention, barring it is' said the Jubilee
session held at Nashville. In conversa
tion with some of the leading Baptists
of the United States who stopped in
Nashville this week, it was learned i
that the Convention went on record as
having reached the high water mark
in Foreign Missions and Education.
From the opening day of the conven
tion until the hour of closing the dele
. gates reported that there was religi
ous ferver, brotherly association and
the highest possible business air
throughout. Some of the things accom
plished by the convention reported by
the delegates were the raising of near
ly six thousand dollars for foreign mis-
indorsing worthy applicants for theo
logical training; recommending and
placing their indorsement upon the
Sunday School Congress missionary
movement; the selecting of time and
place for the next session of the con
vention as Little Rock, Ark.; the hear
ing of the reports of the eight mis
sionary board and the adding of the
Church Edifice Board, whose duty and
power will be to Bave churches,' meet
ing their financial nee.ds wherever it
is possible, thereby keeping them from
being disposed of and sold for debt. It
was said by the delegates that the Con
vention adhered strictly to the Con
stitution as it had never done before
and that not a single officer was elect
ed until the credential committee and
the committee on enrollment had made
their final reports. The election did
not take place until Saturday, Sep'
tember 8th. "one of the characteris-
sions; the report of pledges and cash I tics of the Convention," declared one of
of upward of fifteen thousand dollars the delegates, "was the entire absence
for the Theological training -school; the of the ill-feeling on the part of the
going on record for the highest possible messengers one against the other." It
