I>r. \V. I,. Linglc, professor of
Church History in Cnion Theological
Seminary, headed the corps uf Confer
i*hi*o loaders. He delivered two Sun
day School addresses and a series of
"?veiiiiiK addresses on "Sumo of the
Klindn mental Doctrines of Christian
ity." Dr. Liimle's forceful and lueti
messages im the Word of Cod were ;i
dislinet feature of tin* Conference pro
gram. Dr. .1. (). Ilea vis of Naslt
ville, Tenn., conducted lite vesper s-*r
vices and led < In* foreign mission
study classes. His broad experience
and true Christ inn personality instilled
lessons of fruitful consequence into
the liearts of the Conference dele
gales. In (lie Rihlc study course, Dr.
15. K. l.acy of Central Presbyterian
Church. Atlanta, f?a., conducted one
<if t In* most interesting classes of tin*
session. Ilis scries of instructive lec
tures dealt with "Paul's Conversion
and Ills Spoken Messages.'*
Dr. Hofner McMillan, of Atlanta,
(la., in his Home Mission classes cre
ated an indelible impression on the
young people through his vivid de
scription of tin* need and opportunity
for service. He emphasized the im
jortance of making this country n
(iod-land built upon the Jesus-way of
living and of subduing the corners of
the globe for Christianity.
Mr. 11. C. Fullerton of San Antonio,
Texas, lield secretary for the Assem
bly's Committee on Sabath Schools,
headed the Strnday School depart
ment of the Conference. The modern
Sunday School, as against the old
fashioned one and the responsibility
of the youth of the State for its fail
ure or success were the striking points
of his lectures.
Christian Endeavor classes were
ably piloted by Jack lluppertz of Dal
las, Christian Kiuleavor lield secre
tary for Texas. Mr. lluppertz out
lined and detailed the complete or
ganization and machinery of Chris
tian End-aver He brought out veiy
thoroughly :"be Loyalty Program ami
Standards of Elliciency in this work
for the young people to build their
Christian Endeavors by.
The amusement and recreational
side of the Conference life was
handled by Miss Mary Louise Wood
son of Dallas. The swimming beaches
of the Guadalupe River prove the
center of outdoor activity for old and
young life. Canoeing, fishing, ten
nis, baseball, volley ball, hiking and
other sports were extremely popular
during the Conference. "(Jet ac
quainted" gatherings, ?'sing-songs"
and several receptions contributed to
the social life. A. weird "Mystery
Ramble" winding about the moonlit
mountains was second in interest only
to the stunt night program, which
consisted of one-act farce comedies by
the different clans. A very interest
ing phase of the Conference was the
"clan organization" of the delegates;
each Presbytery or combination of
Presbyteries was organized as a
Scottish Clan and elected its own
Chieftain. Competition in class work,
campus conduct and sports, with a
point system of grading, made the
(?lit ire Conference assume the nature
of staunch competing units ? divided
in "pep" interest but united in a
single definite purpose, a glorifica
tion of the Kingdom of God. A pa
triotic atmosphere was introduced
and correlated w'th the religious cere
monies of the daily program in the
raising and lowering of Old (ilory at
sunrise and sunset each day.
The closing services conducted by
Dr. II. K. Lacy was in the nature of
a decision service. Twenty young
