WOMEN'S RIGHTS UP
They Must Decide Whether Women a

Whiona Lake, Ind., May 20.-Scrip
tural quotations were passed back and
forth today as the commissioners to
t'ic 133rd general assembly of the
Presbyterian church in t-he United
States attempted to establish how
much of a part women are to be given
in ecclesiastical government, A deci

Presibyteries of the church to take a
referendum vote on the question ot
allowing women to be Installed a.
deacons, an office hitherto held only
iby men. The vote will be reported
at the net general asseibly.
T'he proposal that wonen be permit

a protest from Reverend Abraham, of
Chester, Penn. He quoted from te
book of Acts, in which he said the
t'vcilve apostles, in calling for the ap
poinitm.ent of deaconls, gave this in

out, therefore, :breth rcn, from among
s.Ven men of good report, fill] of the
spirit and wisdom you may appoint
over thIs business."
"We have this for our guard, breth
ren," declared Reverend bathoni, "an
I bolieve we should stick pretty close
to toe Good 'Book."
A generous round of -applause greet

there was counter--quotation from a
commissioner who found his inspira

our* sister, who is deaconess of the
church that is at Conchreae, that ye
receive hler' in the Lord. 'worthily of
the saints, and that ye assist her in
whatsoever matter she may have need
of you. For she herself also hath been
the helper of many and of mine own
Cheers greeted the quotation and a
tribute by 'Reverend David Hughes of
Baltimore, to the deaconess in his
church, brought ringing shouts of ap
The vote followed authorizing the
referendum vote on the granting of
the additional power to women in the
church governplent. Last year 'a
Presbyterial vote on an overture op
posing a change in the constitutional
government of .the church so that wo
men might 'be eligible to vote the
oiees of elder and deacon showed a
defeat for the overture.
