Bowen, editor of the Central Christian Advocate, published here, devotes Miss Smith asserted, is “beset with obstacles of prejudice, self ishiness, greed, vanity and in many cases a real and poisonous determination on the part of va rious groups and individuals to bickering disunity and hate.” It is necessary, therefore, for those sincere in their desire to huiid a better world to counteract the influence of the “trouble mak ers” on mankind, she added.

Clark, acted in bad faith in seeking the injunc tion on the eve of the annual con ferences, when they knew a year in advance when the conferences were to convene. Appealing the decision, the plain tiff’s again received an adverse ruling in the appelate court where five judges ruled against them without a dissenting voice. -!
