Chairman of the Baptist Ministers'
Conference of the city of Nashville,
' end the Treasurer of the State Con-
vention. As honored guest of the
meeting they were both introduced
c- and spoke. The meeting however, of
the commute was for the purpose of
outlining a program for the work to
be conducted in this section of the
state. First and foremost was the
educational and missionary work. The
acquisition Of a BDlenriid nrhnnl In thi-

composed of approximately two parts

of the use of this combination has
been the saving of about 200 pounds

apparent difference between this
bread and the bread which is made
wholly of wheat flour. The potato
bread will be used exclusively at the

describing somewhat in detail this
experiment with sweet potatoes has
been prepared at the Institute.

one of the leading Baptists of this

of the Baptist forces. It is under

When seen by a Globe representative

that he was highly pleased wilh the.
work ol the Lesson Committee ana
the until e time that had been spont
at the Adelphia Hotel had been con

new cycle of lessons beginning with

there were marked improvements'
over tin; old way of studying the

uniform series of Sunday school lee
sons adopted by the committee which
will give added material, both tn
Scripture reference and in lesson,
texts for primary, intermediate and
adult classes, but that the beginners
will be provided for in the usual way.
Much significance was t ttached to
Dr. Ellington's trip, as he is the only
colored representative out of the ten
million Negroes in the United States
belonging to this committee, who
prepares the lessons for all the Sun
day schools of the Evangelical de
nominations on the North American,
