WILL BE CHANGED
Question Is Brought Up and Debated
in Presbyterian Synod.
. Anderson, Nov. 0.-Following a
heated debate, resolutions were adopt
ed here today in the meeting of the
synod of South 'Carolina providing for
a change in the present charter of
Thornwell Orphanage, at Clinton. The
resolution providing for the change
-consisted of three articles which read:
(1) That the necessary steps be taken
by the synod of South Carolina to
place the election of the board of trus
tees in the hands of three controlling
synods; (2) that the trustees of the
several - synods of South Carolina,
Georgia and Florida be elected for a
term of years, (3) that the repreself
tation of the synod of South Carolina
on the board be fixed at thirteen
members and that a resolution be
adopted suggesting to the synod of
Georgia and Florida the election of
seven and five members, respectively.
A subsequent resolution which was
proposed to the synod and adopted,
made provision for the taking of oth
er steps as may be necessary to per
feet the, title of the synod to the prop
erty of the orphanage. A committee
consisting of Hlenry Jiuck, Henry E.
Davis, A. C. Todd and Dr. L. Ross
Lynn was appointed to procure the
new charter, or an amendment to the
old charter, whichever in the judg
ment of the committee the rsolutiona
may demand. The resolution advocat
ing the change in the present charter
was ordered by Dr. E'. E. Gillespie
chairman of the committee at large.
F olllwing the request before the
synod by W. E. Davis to indorse the
work being done at Clemson college
by assistong in paying off the debt or

the synod would pay the' debt and
