CAPITAL $1,000,000 MAIN CORNER 7th THE NOWLAN COMPANY ATLANTA PRESBYTERIAN MEN'S DINNER. Nearly two hundred Atlanta Pres byterian laymen and ministers attend ed a dinner meeting in the Interest of the Progressive Program. The din ner was served at one of the leading hotels of the city. R. P. Kirkpatrick, group man ager f?r the Atlanta group of churches, presided. Addresses were made by Rev. James B. Ftcklln, Sy nodical manager; Rev. S. Waters Mc ill, campaign manager, and Rev. J. Edwin Hemphill, manager for Atlanta Presbytery. These Presbyterian men faced Grvhe whole p,an and purp?se Of the Progressive Program. The fact of failure of the Every-Member Can vass last year was recognized. The reason given for this was the unwlll ngness of churches to accept offlcial > assigned quotas and failure to fol ow proper plans for the conduct of the canvass. <?T!rrVVaS a" enlbu8|Mtlc response to the plans (or the new year and a determination to conduct the most c ?na emclent E'?y-Member tanvass .over held in Atlanta churches. The pastors present were made"^r W"h 'h? 8?^?ons made for increased efficiency in this important work. Following the addresses of the spe cial speakers, there were many im promptu speeches, statements and questions from the floor. So ? greal was the interest that at times several men were on the floor at once endea voring to express their approval of e plans and their purpose to enter heartily into the campaign. The leader of one of the most suc cessful campaigns in Atlanta churches last year explained his methods. This Christian layman Is a sales manager and applied business principles to his church canvass with the natural re sult of splendid success. Emphasis was placed on the tithe as an essen tial part of the Christian program. One enthusiastic deacon stated that churches were asked to "underwrite" certain quotas and in too many in stances "wrote under" . the amount asked for. This lack of faith and lack of willingness to follow the plans of the Church invariably resulting in loss. The details of the Every-Member Canvass were discussed and heartily approved. It was more than interest ing to hear man after man urge that pastors give their people more infor mation about the benevolences of the Church and that congregations be more fully posted regarding the plans of the Church's Progressive Prognam. All that is necessary for Presbyterians is information, and they may be de pended upon to act. So fine was the fellowship and so intense the interest that there was a general demand for practical and defi nite action. Two motions were passed, both of them unanimously. First, the elders and deacons and pastors pres ent voted without a. dissenting voice that they approved the plans of the Progressive Program and the financial quota assigned to Atlanta. They fur ther voted to recommend to their re spective churches that they follow the Plans and accept the quotas as as signed. The other motion, which was also unanimously carried, was that out of this dinner meeting there be organ ized the Presbyterian Men's Union of Atlanta. Proper committees were ap pointed for this purppse. There had been at times a bit of difference of opinion as to method. After discus sion, however, when the votes were taken, every man stood to his feet, indicating unanimous Approval of every action taken. , Bolshevism and Christianity are ANTIPODES America Must Choose Christianity Affords the Only Foundation for National Perpetuity All Christians are Invited to Join in the Movement to put our National Life on a Truly Christian Basis FOR Information and Literature Address The Witness Committee ^ 119 Federal Street, Pittsburgh, Pa.
