one accord they decided at a special
meeting called among themselves to
request Dr. Boyd of the Publishing
Board to allow them to donate their
dinner in order that these men might
get special tokens and they requested
that this token be in the form of a
Bible, song book, or Sunday school
quarterly or religious magazine, and
that it should be known that it came
from the employees of the plant.
At the meeting when this was being
discussed patriotic speeches were made
and finally the venerable secretary of
the Board, who has held the annual
dinner so near and dear as a part of
the curriculum of the institution,
yielded to the pressure. The people re
ported for work as usual on New
Year's day. They worked on through
the chapel hour and at noon, when
the bell sounded, they found their way
to the chapel services, which were
opened at once. The entire force
under the leadership of the chorister
The very singing and the deport
ment of the employees denoted the
patriotism of the occasion. Prayer
was offered and then another song,
after which the Rev. Dr. Boyd was in
troduced and gave a minute history
of the beginning of the New Year's
dinner. While he expressed sadness
they were not seated around or stand
ing around the table, he expressed Joy
that there should be enough fore

a righteous cause, then you become

secretary among other things.
Following this the Rev. G. W. Dood
bey was called and delivered a strong
address, telling of tho flccn in nlishmpn a
of the race and the denomination. He
proved by the Bible that the Ethiop
ian himself had become careless in
his religion and that he would be the
loser because of this carelessness.
Then Rev. Dr. Hardintr. nrpslriont nf
the Tennessee Baptist State Conven
tion was introduced and spoke, so
that the entire time that had been
usually taken for this festive occasion

spired by patriotic motive, the em
ployees of the National Baptist Pub
lishing Board decided to forego
their turkey and to ask the venera
ble Dr. Boyd, the Secretary of the
Publishing Board, to give the money"
that he usilly appropriates for the
ew dear's, jinner to the boys iu
rwir .lWenKy ears Dr- and Mrs.
Bod, tosether with the members of
the Publishing Board, have given the
annual New Year's dinner to the
hundreds of employees ot the plant,
it has been estimated that approxi
mately five hundred dollars have been
expended by Dr. Boyd and his wile
tor this annual occasion. U has gone
on so long that only about two of the
list of employees out of the one hun
dred and fifty on the pay roll can
recall when it did not ex;8t.
Every preparation had been made
a turkey menu selected, the caterer
agreed upon, the silver-ware, china
fcare and the linens had been order
ed, but on last Saturday the em
ployees held a meeting in the chapel.
ki w,asa Patriotic meeting, and Miss
N. K King, who is at the head cf
the Proof Reading Department, ot
tered a resolution that "since our
boys are in need of religious litera
ture, and since the Publishing Board
is leading all others in the supply
ing of this literature, that we, the
employees, join in with the move
ment, sacrificing our New Year's din
ner in order that the cost of the same
might be converted into suitable Bi
bles, song books and Sundav school
helps.' When this resolution was
ottered, a number of speeches were
made by the foremen of the heads of
the various departments, including
L. K. Thomas of the Composing
Room? Wm. Franklin of the Press
Room; L. S. Gray of the Book Bind
ing Department; L. Landers of the
Mailing Department; G. l'hineas Ba
ker of the Second Class Mailing De
partment; Dr. W. S. Ellington, the
Editorial Secretary, Wm. Cheers and
When Dr. Boyd was apprised of the
action he was overcome with emo
tion and readily consented. So on
New Year's Day instead of gathering
around the festive board, they gath
ered in the chapel, held their usual
meeting, sang patriotic songs, lis
tened to three set speeches and took
the balance of the day in the obser
vance of Emancipation.
