Wo have this year adopted the fol lowing plan: Our Circles are divided into groups; the year divided into two liarts, six months each; programs into two groups, Home Missions and Foreign. Each group of Circles studies one program group for six months, then exchanges with other Circle group, thus requiring half as much material. Under Home Missions, we take "Presbyterian Pioneers" every month, current events, and one group of work, Indian frontier, Negro, For eigners and Mountain work. Under Foreign, we take this year Japan only, concentrating on women missionaries. This material is divided Into monthly groups, placed in envelopes, and distributed to the chairmen. Wo have a different leader In every Circle every month, and she takes complete charge of getting up and leading the Program. The Secretaries of Causes circulate ln groups, so that they hear the pro gram without interruption, month by month. For Bible Study, we have a leader, ??t the chairmah, in each Circle. These form a study class, under the Secretary of Spiritual Resources, and teach, in all the seven Circles, the same work each month, fifteen min utes each. During this year, they will cover the Book of Matthew, with Hohtatis next year, The advantages are that thii 1ft * r?ftt etudjf for every (1trel?< thet th* Secretaries of Causes, In their visits, miss no work on the Bible and that the whole Auxiliary is uniform in the courso. President of Auxiliary, Mooreville, N. C. TENTH ANNUAL MKKTINQ <>1? MISSISSIPPI SYNODlCAli AUX ILIARY AND FOURTH ANNUAL WOMAN'S CONFERENCE. The tenth annual meeting of Mis sissippi Synodical Auxiliary was held in Belhaven College, Jackson, Miss., June 12-16, in connection with Sy nod's Summer Conference from June 13-23. There was a flue attendance of officers, members and visitors. All reports were encpuraging, showing an increase along all lines. The daily Biblo lesson was taught by Mrs. H. M. Sydenstricker, the first Synodical president, now dean of tlio Bible de partment in Agnes Scott College. Synod's superintendent of Sunday Schools and Young People's Work voiced the appreciation of Synod for the hearty co-operation of Synodical in the two splendid summer Confer ences, especially their great help in interesting the young people to at tend. Following the close of Synodical, Mrs. J. S. Hicks moat ably conducted the daily Woman's Conference period, for which a helpful program had been arranged. Interest centered in the anniversary program, June 15, celebrating the or ganization of Synodical ten years ago. Rev. C. T. Thomson, D. D., chairman of Synod's Committee on Church So cieties, and the staunch friend and advisor of Synodical, presided and made the opening address. There were short addresses by Mrs. H. M. Sydenstricker, Mrs. W. H. ^ hitaker and Mrs. J. L. Williams, the three who have served as Synodical presi dents. An interesting feature was the roll call of all officers who had served during the ten years. As their names were called, those present came for ward and placed a rose in a vase on the table, the secretary placing one for each who could not attend, in a separate vace placing a white rose for the two officers who had been called to their reward. At close of roll call, the secretary lifted the roses in her arms, saying the empty vase signified the organization of Synodical when inexperienced, untried women took up the work "In His Name.' The roses representing the women who had served at various times typified the work accomplished. Mrs. J. S. Hicks read a history of the Synodical, and Mrs. C. S. Everts gave a summary of the ten years' work. Rev. J. R. Cun ningham made a strong address on "A Paying Investment ? Our French Camp School." Rev. J. B. Hutton, D. D., installed the officers, of whom Mrs. D. G. McLaurin, Canton, is presi dent; Mrs. 0. S. Everts, Gulfport, sec retary, and Mrs. E. D. Davis, Green ville, treasurer. Of the forty-one different women who have held office, two have served continuously, exerting a strong influ ence at all times In shaping the poli cies of the Synodical. Mrs. W. H. Whitaker, as Synodical officer or Preshyterial president, has been a member of the Executive Committee from the beginning. Mrs. C. S. Everts has served continuously as secretary, and in the ten years has never missed a meeting, either regu lar or of the Executive Committee. The next annual meeting will be held in the fall, time and place to be tiecided by the Executive Committee. MRS. C. 9. EVERTS, Synodical Sacratary. (Continued on pas* 10)' Laymen and Their Work LAYMEN'S MISSIONARY MOVE. MENT. The following is an outline of the principal work done in the period since our last report, December 31st, 1921: Laymen's Associations. There are now set up forty asso ciations in thirty-eight 'Presbyteries, two having two each. There arc also a large number of local Church as sociations, some of the Presbyterial Associations having organized the men in nearly every Church in their Presbyteries. Mass meetings of men have been held at the following points in this period to set up new associations: At DeFuniak Springs, Fla., for Florida Presbytery; at Lynnvilie, Tenn., for Columbia Presbytery; at Little Rock, Ark., for Arkansas Pres bytery; at Selma, Ala., for Tuscaloosa Presbytery; at Brookneal, Va., for Roanoke Presbytery; at Henderson, Ky., preliminary work for Paducah Presbytery. Mass meetings of the associations already organized were held in the following Presbyteries: Red River, La.; East Alabama; Pine Bluff and Washita, Ark.; Paris, Texas; North Mississippi; St. John's, Fla.; Chero kee, Ga.; Lexington, Va., and Transyl vania, Ky. Letters were sent before the spring meetirfgs of Presbyteries to all stated clerks of Presbyteries where the men are unorganized and organization committees have been appointed in the following Presbyteries: Knox ville, Fort Worth, Dallas, Enoree, (Greenville section) Concord, King's Mountain, South Carolina, Bethel, Pee Dee, and Southwest Georgia. Simultaneous Efforts. At the request of the Stewardship Committee, we oirered every Church, to furnish as far as possible, laymen to speak 011 Sunday, March 5th, for either ten minutes or the full sermon period as requested, on the Every Member Canvass. A large percent age of the active Laymen's Associa tions co-operated in this effort, and laymen were placed in nearly every pulpit opened for this effort. Our secretary spoke on this subject on March 5th in the Laurens, S. C., First Church in the morning, and Green wood, S. C., at night. Conferences. On June 16th to 18th, inclusive, we held our Third Annual Week-End Retreat Conference at Montreat, with representatives present from eight Synods. On July loth and 11th, we put on at Montreat a new service in the form of a Conference specially arranged for the help of Sunday School Superin tendents and Assistant Superintend ents. This was done with the full approval and co-operation of the Sun day School Department of our Church. There were eight Synods represented at this Conference also. Secretary's Work. During this period our secretary visited many parts of the Church for various types of service. Since April 1st he has traveled 4,706 miles, de livered twenty-one addresses and talks, and conducted ten Conference sessions. He served on the faculty of the Young People's Conference for the Synod of Tennessee, at 1 Ovoca, June 19th-26th. He also served as city chairman and song leader for the Ninth Annual Convention of the Georgia State Christian Endeavor Union, held in Athena, April 21st to 23rd. Centreville, Ala. Rather an unusual service was held in this Church recently. Ruling El ders T. L.. McGlll and P. T. Shanks or the Broad Street Church, Selma, Ala., were with us in a three-days' evangelistic meeting, beginning on the 16th and lasting through the fol lowing Sabbath. Both of these breth ren favored us with addresses at each service. They were thoughtful and earnest in the presentation of the Gospel ? pressing home the value of Christian service and of a consecrated life. On Saturday night a service for the men of the Presbyterian Church was held in the Court House, after which light refreshments were served by the ladies of the congregation, a most delightful occasion it was, in deed. On Sabbath afternoon a meet ing for all the men of the community was held in the Presbyterian Church. After most stirring addresses some forty men expressed their purpose to consecrate anew their lives to the Saviour. Then came the farewell ser vice on Sabbath night when a large number of the members of the Pres byterian Church and some from the other Churches signified their deter mination to loyally support and assist their pastors in their every effort to advance the interests of the Kingdom in our midst. It was a delightful season of grace. We feel that the Spirit was present to bless the people, and these brethren who brought, the blessing as instru ments in the hand of God, may be as sured of our lasting gratitude, and we feel that their work will tell both fot time And eternity.
