led the prayer meeting at the Second
church in the absence of the pastor.
At a meeting of the elders and dea
cons immediately following the prayer

of kind appreciation of his services

Berkeley Springs and Duckwalt
Churches: . At the request of the pap
tor, Rev. L. Cook Campbell, Elder O.
B. Weber, recently gave an address to
these congregations, instead of the
usual morning and afternoon ser
mons. He discussed the subject of
the financial obligations of Christians,
including the tithe, in a vigorous and
impressive manner, and was listened
to with marked attention. Mr. Weber
is a country elder, raised in the New
Hope congregation, where a small mis
sion church was built by the Berke
ley Springs congregation, in a com
munity without any PresDyteriftH
members or associations.
The Duckwall Sabbath school con
tributed nearly fifty dollars to the
Armenian Relief Fund. Since the com
munity is recovering from its second
epidemic of the "flu," the attendance
is increasing, and the school is putting
on new life, reviving the spirits of the
faithful superintendent, Mr. E. A.

A SOUTHERN PRESBYTERIAN
MADE SECRETARY OF THE
AMERICAN BIBLE SOCIETY.
We are very happy to announce the
election of Mr. Frank H. Mann as
one of the secretaries of the Ameri
can Bible Society.
On the resignation of the Rev. Dr.
John Fox In July, 1918, a commit
tee was appointed to secure a secre
tary who should divide the responsi
bilities of the administration of the
society with the Rev. Dr. Haven.
After a careful survey of the needs
of the society, the committee recom
mended to the board of managers the
appointment of Mr. Frank H. Mann,
of New York City. This appointment
was a^ted upon at the meeting of the
board of February 6, 1919, and Mr.
Mann was unanimously elected one of
the secretaries of the society. He
was able to take up his duties im.
mediately and is now at his desk at
the Bible House, giving himself with
enthusiasm to these new responsibili
Mr. Mann was born in Petersburg,
Va? on May 8, 1883. His father was
Judge Edwin M. Mann; his mother.
Bertha Cowles Mann. His parents
died when he was two years old, leav
ing ten children, all of whom are now
living but one. Mr. Mann was reared
by his father's brother, the Hon. Wil
liam Hodges Mann ? a lawyer, Judge
and senator and governor of Virginia.
He took his preparatory training in
the public schools and at Hoge Mili
tary Academy, Virginia. He grad
uated from Hampden-Sidney College
in 1903, and was on his graduation
made a sub-professor, taking in 1904
his B. Lit. and M. A. During his col
lege course he was interested in the
library, was business manager and
editor-in-chief of the college monthly,
was on the editorial staff of the col
lege Annual, president of the Y. M.
C. A., director of the gymnasium, and
president of the literary society ?
thus, perhaps, unconsciously prepar
ing himself for his future work.
For a few months after leaving col
lege he conducted a mission school
in the mountains of Virginia, and for
half a year was assistant secretary of
the Y. M. C. A. in Havana. Cuba. He
came to New York in 1905, entered
the service of the Charity Organiza
tion Society and became secretary of
the Committee on the Prevention ot
Tuberculosis, a department of that so
At the outset of the war he enlist
ed and entered the field artillery,
where he became first lieutenant. He
has had his honorable discharge, but
has borne his part in the great
struggle for the overthrow of German
He was brought up by his uncle to
be an earnest lover of the Bible and
joined the Presbyterian Cnurch in the
United States. On coming to New
York he became a member of the
Fifth Avenue Presbyterian church,
and is now president of their Young
People's Association. He Is a mem
ber of the board of managers and
superintendent of the Sunday-school
of the John Hall Memorial, well
known in New York City as one of the
important activities of the Fifth Ave
nue church. He Is also vice-president
of the Eighth Avenue Mission.
He is related to a number of im
portant interests in the city, both re
ligious and social.
Mr. Mann will give a very large
part of his attention to strengthening
the resources of the society.
It is a great satisfaction to the
Board of Managers to have on ita
staff a young layman, loving the
Scriptures and believing heart and
soul In all missionary activities.
THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY.
A Message to the PreibytorUl
Stated Clerks: Our next General As
sembly meets May loth in Napoleon
Avenue church, New Orleans. And
as so much of the convenience and
success of its ftork depends upon the
accuracy and promptness of the stated
clergy of the eighty-seven Presby

early date to say a few words to you
whose service is most important.
1. As there have been an unusual
number of changes in the clerkships
this year, I would ask those who have
come into ofllce since the last Assem
bly, please to notify me at once so
that I may know with whom to com
2. Be sure to procure a new set of
blanks for reports this year. The As
sembly orders changes nearly every
year, so that It is never safe to use
3. Take special care to fill out all
these blanks according to the direc
tions printed on them, and add up all
the columns, using the adding machine
4. Mail to me all these reports, and
any other documents for the Assem
bly, as early as possible ? at the latest
by May 1st ? so that I may put the
printers to work on the statistical
tables, and to tabulate other reports
for the Assembly.
5. See . that the Assembly assess
ment on your Presbytery, as appears
on page 269. Minutes of 1918, is paid
before the Assembly, lest your com
missioners be embarrassed about their
6. A number of clerks have been
saving labor for themselves and ex
pense to their Presbyteries by having
their statistical tables for their spring
minutes printed from the Assembly's
copy. Any who desire this should in
form me when they send their tables,
which I will have Band & White,
Printers, SDartanburg, S. C., who have
the job of the Assembly Minutes this
year, to set up promptly, and strike
off for you from the Assembly's plates
as many copies as you may order, and
mail them to you, charging only for
the extra work. Thus, you need pre
pare but one copy, and will not have
to pay for the typesetting.
