ABOUT THE CONSOLIDATING
OF SOUTHERN BAPTIST
DR. JOHN T?.1 WHITE
Read the Report Against Consol
idating-There Was a Spirited
Debate On Question
- (By Associated Press)
Nashville, Tenn., May 15.-Spirited
debate tm the question of centralizing
the Sunday school, foreign mission
and home mission boards of Hie South
ern Baptist Convention featured to
day's sessions of the organisation.
The discussion was launched nt a
special session, called to consider the
efficiency commission's report. Ad
journment was taken without any de
cision being reached. The matter will
be further considered at another ses
Dr. John E. White of Atlanta was
jone of the principal opponents and
several other well known delegates
spoke for and against the plan.
Just before the discussion tar?se
the convention had adopted an amend
ment to the bylaws providing "either
applause or dissent on the floor of
the convention is out of order and lt
shall be'the duty of the presiding of
ficer promptly to suppress all such
Delegates disregarded the new sec
tion and burst Into applause repeated
ly during the debate. President Lan
sing Burrows rapped for, order and
called the convention's attention to
its recent action, but little avail.
When the afternoon session Con
vened lt was first agreed to take ac
tion upon ' each sub-section of thc
three sections composing the efficiency
commission's report. Minor changes
In verbage were made during consid
eration of the first section, but no
serious opposition was made to any.
Scarcely harr-Or. White, a member
of the commission finished reading
this,part of the report when Mr. Mc
Connell demanded recognition.
He declared that the present ar
rangement of having, three boards was
not conducive to ufft-vfieat interests
of the convention/ The speaker
charged that under the present ar
rangements the boards were striving
against each other. "We want the en
list the profoundest sympathy1 and
greatest liberality of our constitu
ency," said Mr. McConnell, " a crowd
of .appeals from two: or three boards
in Jures .all.-* Yoji cannot make givers
You cati only obtain gifts- making
the people want to give." ^S?. i
The speaker declared that there waa
a great need for cultivating literature
and pronounced the . Home Mission
Field and the Foreign Mission Journal
as inadequate. "What .We need/'?'hi
added, " is one great periodical ?nd
one mission board." '
Br. John E. Willie assured the ?titi
ge tes that the commission had ehre-'
fully considered the-matted"Miitfofe;
ni?k?n?r the rt^cchimeii-ation. '.Fis es-'
pressed the belief that 'c&#usion

city He also declared th&t' ne single
city could furnish adequate' hanking
faciiitiees. In Ttichniond :atfd Atlanta
the speaker'said, a board'.'ifould not
be able to borrow beyond a certain
fixed amount as a result of the'in
I staluttion ot the regional banks. ?
' ."!>o*3 the icrc?n\ ?^??;,' -ln,?,d

called out a delegate.
"Not all of it" replied Mr.. White.
