BOARD OF TRUSTEES FOR SEMINARY
BR. G. L. PRINCE PRESIDED AT MEETING HELD LAST WEEK BLr
LAWS WILL BE DRAFTED SCHOOL SOON TO OPEN
STATE EXECUTIVE i PREPARATION FOR OPENING PERFECTED
Nashville, Tenn. Complete organ
laation of the Board of Trustees of
the Theological and Training Semin
ary was perfected at the meeting held
last Friday, September 27 th, in this
city. These trustees were handed in
from the various state conventions at
the Little Rock session of the Na
tional Baptist Convention last month.
At the meeting Friday, Rev. G. L.
Prince, D. D., chairman of the Edu
cational Board of the National Bap
tist Convention, presided. The scope
of the work that the Theological and
i raining iseminary school will do
was first entered into and it was
. thought best to organize a board of
Rev. C. H. Clark, of this city, was
unanimously chosen chairman of the
Trustee Board, with Rev. J. L. Hard
S lng, D. D., as secretary-treasurer. A
I committee of five was also named to
; draft By-laws governing the instltu
I tion and to obtain a charter for op-
eration of the school. A committee of
seven was elected as a resident board
that will have entire management of
the school. A recommendation is
being made by the trustee board that
the Board shall be enlarged from
thirty to one hundred so as to take
care of the interests of the various
state conventions, as it is said there
are in some states as many as four
uaptisc btate conventions and five
Baptist organizations claiming to' be
national in their scope. This fact
was brought out at the trustee meet
ing that the Lott Cary Convention
claimed National recognition, but
they devoted their energies primarily
to foreign missions and educations.
The Free Mission Baptists have an or
ganization; the Primitive Baptists
Western States and Territories claim
have a National Convention; the
to be National; the National Baptist
Convention, unincorporated, and the
- National Baptist Convention incor
porated. Just whether all of these
national bodies will be represented
on the board of trustees was not
stated, but from the statement given
-wit- by Dr. Prince berore leaving the
city for his home In Missouri, it was
learned that each State Convention
.. would have its pro rata of trustees
and that from the trustees at large
the seven governing or resident
trustees would be named.
Arrangements were further made
to launch an educational campaign
to raise twenty-five thousand dol
lars for the operation of the school.
A whirldwlnd campaign is already
under way soliciting large subscrip
tions to meet "some pressing obliga
tions. It was understood that the
committee of five would consist prob
ably of Revs. A. W. Porter, D. D.,
pastor of the 15th Avenue Baptist
Church, H. M. Burns, D. D., pastor of
the Tabernacle Baptist Church, C.
B. Taylor, D. D., pastor of the Second
- Baptist Church, with the chairman
and secretary-treasurer. It is not
expected that the general board will
meet before some time in June.

Every preparation for tho opening
of Meharry 'Medical College throng
its various departments next Tues
day, October 8th, is complete, said
Dr. George W. Hubbard, the president
of tha school. Hundreds of students
haye already begun to arrive, in fact,
the Dental students began their work .
Tuesday of this week, and it is learn
ed that the medical students, who
usually outnumber the other stu
dents, will push back the curtain for
the 1918-1919 session on the 8th. The
opening of the si hoot this year and
from now on during the period of tho
war will be on a far dliferent order.
It will be Meharry Military Medical
School; as every student registered,
whether medical or dental, will be
registered under the supervision ot
the United States' Govnrniuent. Al
ready two lieutenants of tho Regular
United States Armv are on tho
grounds, having arrived last week,
and will give military Instructions.
All of the students will wear uniforms
and will bo stationed on the campus
in thoir own dormitories and campus .
.grounds. The changing, therefore, cf
the appearance of the school from
one of civilian to that or military life
is claimed to add not only to the im
portance of the school, but will raise
the standard, which is the thing that
Dr. George W. Hubbard is said to
have long wished for. Practically the
er to the Fourth Liberty Loan will
he'n win the war.
