SHORT TERM WORKERS NEEDED.
By Rev. Egbert W. Smith, IX D. Two of our stations in China are in immediate need of two ladies to teach English in their two hoys' schools. At one of these schools the present lady teacher of English will soon leave for her furlough, with no one to take her place. At the other this need has never yet been supplied. These two lady teachers should be of sound health, should have the true missionary spirit, an earnest Chris tian character, and the ability to teach English. If they could lead in singing hymn tunes it would help. They need not know Chinese, and they could return to tlii3 country in two or three years if necessary. For fur ther information please write me, Post-office Box 330, Nashville, Tenn. ARKANSAS CONFERENCE. The Christian Workers' and Young People's Conference for the Synod of Arkansas, to be held in Arkansas Col lege August 2-11, 1921. There are many reasons why there should be a large and representative crowd at thi3 conference, but I will present here only one appeal, and that is, "Loyalty to Your Church." The writer spent a week recently in Arkadelphia, Ark., where the Metho dists had just had a very successful conference, and where the Baptists were just opening one. The latter had an unprecedented attendance. All the rooms of Ouachita College were engaged before the opening, and it wa3 necessary to solicit rooms in pri vate homes for the overflow. Presbyterians of Arkansas, show your loyalty to your Church by see ins to it that the conference to be held in Batesville will be well at tended. A strong program has been prepared. Let every church in the Synod have at least one delegate. Send registration fee of to Rev. W. S. Lacy, ?. 1)., Batesville, Ark., well in advance of the opening date. Fur ther information can be secured from the above or from Dr. John Van Lear. Little Rock, Ark. Jas. I. Paisley, EDI (MtlOXAL AX'I) UKLIKF COXFTKENCE.

PI T ONE OP THEM IN YOUK PLACE. By Rev. Wade C. Smith. I notice Mr. R. E. Magill has writ ten an article under the caption, "Put Yourself in Their Place." In his usual solicitude for our underpaid and overworked home missionaries, he is holding out the opportunity af forded by the "Vacation Fund" for a timely piece of self-forgetting minis try to an army of faithful and un complaining workers. For twenty dollars one of those can be given two weeks of delightful and refreshing rest at Montreat or Kerrville. That is, of c9urse, for board and gate fee; transportation would have to be ar ranged in addition. The "Vacation Fund" should be large enough to use to the limit the facilities available to it at these re sorts. It will be so if some of us are willing to change the title of that call to "Put One of Them in My Place." There are perhaps hundreds of us who will not make it to Montreat or Kerrville this summer because of be ing unable to get away from home, or on account of other outside en gagements. We could doubtless af ford the indulgence if we had the time. Let's put one of these faithful missionaries in our place at Montreat or Kerrville. Send Mr. Magill twenty dollars, at least, to-day, and tell him that although it seeins impossible for us to get there this summer, we want our place filled. Perhaps he will be able t<> put in a much more worthy incumbent. RICHMOND TRUST CO. CAPITAL, $1,000,000 "EXECUTOR" Corner Broad Corner Main & Monroe Sts. & 7th Sts.
