Discharging An Obligation
The Indian is the original American. They welcomed our pilgrim forefathers with food and
supplies in the time of greatest need.
We repaid this kindness with unjust treatment, dispossessed them of their heritage and
drove them ever toward the setting sun ? fit emblem of their sad destiny.
The government has extended tardy justice by the allotment of lands, and occasionally
scant rations.
The Indian is not a dying race. They number 350,000, of whom 50,000 are pagan and with
out missionaries.
The Oklahoma Presbyterian College, Durant, Okla., represents the effort of the Southern
Presbyterian Church to give them Christian education and the gospel.
The General Assembly calls for $100,000 to enlarge and equip this missionary institution
for ipore efficient and effective service.
This is fundamental in the life of this institution and to the work in Oklahoma.

Mullina : Fork church has recent
ly enjoyed a very successful meeting,
conducted by Rev. W. B. S. Chan
dler, of Dillon. Two services were
held dally. The morning service was
attended by the graded school in a
body. The session has received ten
members into the church, and there
are four others to unite with the
Baptist and Methodist churches.
There were also sixty "reconsecra
tions." Mr. Chandler has endeared
himself to the people of Fork by his
Nashville: The Woodland Street
church has recently experienced a
season Of gracious revival. In these
services the pastor, Rev. W) L. Cald
well, was assisted by Rev. Frank E.
Fin^her and Rev. William H. Mat
thews. The air was clear and crisp
and the people had a mind to work.
The attendance was good and the in
terest continued throughout the se
ries. The last service was the best.
Confession cards were used and many
were signed. A large number of these
were children who will probably come
into church membership when they
are of proper 4ge. The church has
already received eleven new members,
and there are others who will doubt
less come in in the near future. There
is a fine fraternal spirit in the con
gregation that makes it a delight for
them to meet. On Sunday, November
30th, a beautiful bronte roll of honor
was dedicated and set In th? wall of
the church in memory of the twenty
nine men who served their country
in the world war. In connection with
this ceremony the service flag was de
mobilized, the stars taken oft ana pre
sented to the men whom they repre
sented. The one gold star, that of
Fred Blackwood, was presented to his
brothers, who also served. ^

Huntington, Second Church: Sun
day night, November 30th, closed a
most successful revival at our church.
For two weeks the Rev. Ora C. Hus
ton, Presbyterfal Evangelist and Su
perintendent of Home Missions * for
Kanawha Presbytery, preached a se
ries of strong and heart-searching
sermons. The complete results can
never be measured by men, but the
gracious revival was felt by all. Of
the ninety-eight reconsecrations many
of them marked a tuning point io
Christian life and experience. Four
teen were received by baptism into
the church. Four were received on
profession of faith, having been bap
tized In Infancy. Five on reinstate
ment of faith In Christ. Four for
various good reasons were prevented
from being present and will unite
next Sunday. Only two expressed a
preference for other ? churches; one
for the Christian church and one^Ior
the Baptist church. There were two
Infant baptisms. Mr. Huston not only
preaches a strong gospel, but the doc-4
trines of the Presbyterian Church.
Hence the above results; only two
out of thirty uniting with other
churches. The attendance was fine
throughout the meeting and the sing
ing by the two large choirs, the Sun
day school choir and the Young Peo
ple's choir, was especially good. An
other pleasing feature was the sing
ing by the male quartette.
