his liscense to do business, taken from

tion does not intend that any per
swos, such as commission merchants
or wholesale dealers, who handle
large quantities of food, shall allow
food stuffs to spoil, or to become un
fit Tor use as foods. It is also un
lawful for food dealers to store food
longer than a reasonable time after
whlah time this food must be placed
on the market so that the people can
buy It. Thus dealers cannot put
food stuffs in large warehouses or in
cold storage, and then keep them for
a long time and sell them when the
price is high. Through the preven

long time it will be possible for the
people to secure food at a lower price
than, would- otherwi.se be possible
during war time.

Arkansas and Oklahoma, has been
strong in advising his people to take
an active part in doing anything
within their power to help win this

not. only advised to encourage the
young men to enlist, but the preach

sermon each month on the conserva

two thousand people, "and at least
must play an important part, and

Mt. Olive Baptist Church, located
at the corner of Cedar street and
Ninth Avenue, North, is one of the
most imposing pieces of architecture
in the city of Nashville. The build
ing is too stories. The first floor
contains the main Sunday school
room, which is seated with opera
chairs, having a seating capacity of
about eight hundred. It also has a
primary room for the boys and the
eirls. a reception room, kitchen and
dressing rooms for ladies and gents
with all of the modern improvements
and sanitary fixtures. The main au
ditorium is a marvel of beauty and
comprises the larger portion of the
second floor. The pastor's study
iid to be the largest I leads directly into this auditorium.
The seating capacity of tne auuiio
rium is between fifteen hundred and
two thousand. This chuch is one of
the many in Nashville, that can
boast of a large pipe organ operated
by an electric motor. The choir, un

music at all times.

great Progressive Baptin Convention
met in Helena, Ark. Being hurried
in our work toward the last, I don't
think we took time to extend our

as we should have done. But I assure
than it was simply an over look of
the head and not of the heart. For
there was not a single man or woman
in the Convention who did not feel

Lectures on Folk Song of the Ameri
Prof. J. W. Work recently lectured
to the' students and faculty of Pea
body College for teachers upon the
bubject "Folk Song of the American
Negro." He treated the music from
the standpoint of history, psychology
and art. He began by treating the
Ethiopian as a subject of literature
in the dawn of civilization on the
Bhores of the Mediterranean Sea. In
those days he was a child of light
and that light has been expressed In
his song as it has sun.g itself
hrnnirh the acres. He also maintain
ed successfully that this music has
been evolved into the only real
American music and that if we are
ever to have t national music it
must be based upon the melodies of
the South, born in the hearts of the
Negro slaves. Eminent musical au
thorities were adduced in support of
this proposition. He made the point
that every one of these songs la
based upon the Holy Scriptures and
therefore sacred, and that any song
! for which the claim of Negro folk
music 13 made, which is not sacred,
or based upon the Bible, is not
The muse was interpreted from the
viewpoint of the Negro as well as
from the standpoint of. the world,
showing the' possibility of dual mean
ing of many songs.
The speaker then proceeded to
namo and explain some character
istics of the music, such as scale,
rythm. Hat 7 and ' paradox. "The
Necrro's music." he said, "Is cast in
