At the conclusion of the Conference on Young People's Work a resolution was introduced by Rev. Melton Clark, D. D., of Charleston, calling on all churches In the Presbyterian Church to organize Christian Endeavor So cieties. The resolution was adopted without a single dissenting vote. The Endeavorers of Clinton, S. C., held a patriotic meeting recently, when the Army of Universal Service was presented. Young ladles dressed as Red Cross nurses distributed the "Army" pledges, and Boy Scouts col lected them. A half dozen young people decided for full time service for Christ dur ing the consecration service that closed the Southeastern District Con vention of Endeavorers at Clarkton, N. C., in October. B. B. Reynolds, of Wilmington, was elected president of this district for another year. He has done splendid work for the young peo ple. Ninety-five per cent of those who signed the "Army of Universal Ser vice" pledge at a meeting led by Field Secretary Taylor ki Newport News, Va., were men in khaki. George Owl, president of the Indian Christian Endeavor Society of Hamp ton, Va., is a soldier at Camp Jack son, Columbia, S. C. An orchestra from the naval post at Norfolk furnished music at a rally led by Field Secretary Taylor at Suf folk, Va., recently. A new Endeavor Society has recent ly been organized in the A. and M. College at Monroe, Ga., and the so ciety was represented at the District Convention at Auburn. Ga. DR. SAMPSON AND DURANT COL LEGE. It is known to many friends throughout the Church that in the building of Durant Presbyterian Col lege some years ago, my husband. Dr. Thornton R. Sampson, at that time chairman of the Twentieth Century Fund in the Synod of Texas, advanced out of his personal funds a sum of money to complete the first building, with the understanding that he would be reimbursed by contributions se cured by him for the Twentieth Cen tury Fund, authorized by the Synod of Texas. Very soon after this the Synod abandoned its purpose of raising this educational fund, and the lamented death of Dr. Sampson prevented his completing his undertaking, leaving unpaid about half of the amount ad vanced voluntarily to assist the col lege. I am writing this that the friends of Dr. Sampson and the Church may know that this claim has now been paid in full. I feel that credit should be placed where it belongs, first to Dr. S. L. Morris, secretary of Home Missions, who, with my approval, and that of the Executive Commltee, vol unteered to act in our behalf in se curing funds to settle this claim, amounting In all to $5,115.11, of which $2,350.00 had been collected by Dr. Sampson. To the kind friends who generously responded to the appeal of Dr. Morris and contributed the remainder of this amount, I wish to express my sincere thanks, praying that God will remem ber and reward their goodness. Mrs. T. R. Sampson. Why are we ever overborne with care, Why should we ever weak or heart less be, Anxious or troubled, when with us is prayer, And joy and strength and courage are with thee? ?
