this allotment began July 20 and
ended August 10 in a victory dinner

more of local men and women. Dur

section the message of the splendid
progress of the college as well as the

splendid addresses.

were Drs. Buschgen o? New York,

MA8SANETTA SPRINGS BIBIjE
CONFERENCE.
The climax of the five weeks of
the Massanetta Springs Bible Con
ference was reached when Dr. J. Stu
art Holden of London, England, and
Dr. William Evans, Chicago, III.,
came to the platform. On Monday,
the begining of the Bible Conference,
there were probably a thousand peo
ple present to greet these wonderful
speakers.
There has been so far a daily at
tendance of about three hundred peo
ple at Bible Conference. Dr. Holden's
beautiful flow of English, together
with the spiritual fervor of his mes
sages, made a profound impression
upon his hearers.
Dr. Evans has lived up to his repu
tation of being one of the greatest
Bible teachers in America. He has
made the First Epistle of John live
before his hearers.
About fifty ministers were present
on the first day of the Bible Confer
ence. They ate dinner with Dr. Hol
den and Dr. Evans in one corner of
the dining room. A solo was sung
by Cfirystal Brown, the splendid
choir leader and soloist, and most
heartsearching addresses were ma<e
by Drs. Holden and Evans. All de
nominations In the Valley were rep
resented.
Encouraging features of the five
weeks' Conference have been the De
dicatorial Exercises with the attend
ance of the governor of the State, E.
Lee Tr>nkle, and a banquet given in
the interest of Hampden-Sidney Col
lege and Union Theological Seminary,
attended by the governor and a long
list of distinguished ministers, includ
ing Dr. W. W. Moore. His addresses
during the Dedicatorial Week will
long be remembered by those who
heard them. Young People's Week
