ROGER WILLIAMS UNIVERSITY
LOSES A LOYAL SON IN THE
DEATH OF DR. THOMAS
By Mack T. Williams.
Life In its entirety is peculiarly In
terwoven. Some say that life is a
golden gem banded down from the
heavenly Father to parent, transmit
ted from parent to child. Since In
the midst of life there la death, we
join the poet who sings
"Oh, let the soul her slumber break,
Let thought be quickened and awake;
Awake to see
How soon this life Is past and gone
And death comes softly stealing on,
The faculty and student body of
Roger Williams University finds hov
ering over them the lowering shades
of sadness due to the death of Dr.
T. J. Searcy, pastor of the Metropoli
an Baptist Church, Memphis, Tenn.
The loss of so prominent a man is
keenly felt by the school, since the
deceased was a graduate of Roger
Williams, belonging to that galaxy of
stars whose effulgent rays have gone
into the dark and benighted paths of
those .groping in ignorance and sin,
intelligence and Christianity being
Since the flickering dawn of free
dom the Negro race men of national
proportion have come, men of
thought, men of conviction, men with
the glorified visions of seers and
prophets and men who were construc
tive workers for God. A glance at
the life of Dr. Searcy will reveal the
fact that la that brilliant array of
men just mentioned, he was in the
first rank. Being cognizant of the
fact that he was an example of real
American manhood, a scholar of no
mean ability, a preacher who for
many years had the courage to preach
the uncompromising gospel, a suc
cessful pastor, a friend who was de
voted, a Christian gentleman, a loyal
husband and a loving father, we can
but feel that though his greatness
has pot been carved in shimmering
brightness on stone, he has easily
made for himself a monument In the
hearts of those with whom he has
come in contact.
While ww bow In humble submis
sion to the will .of Him who setteth
the stars in thir course and placed
them to music upon the harp of time,
we have that .sublime faith to look
beyond the rim of life and feel that
while he has crossed that, river which
divides this fleeting mortality from
that plorious infinitude beyond the
stars, heaven's attractions have in
creased since he entered its portals
and that he is now at rest with the
Our loss, but heaven's gain.
