I have just finished an extended
conversation with Dr. M. W. Judy,
president of the Wayman Home
Circle, and Rev. C. F. Stewart,
pastor of St. Peter’s A. M. E.
Church of Minneapolis. I am in
formed that the people of St.
Peter’s Church view the dating of
St. James’ (St. Paul), Fashion
Show on April ninth as motivated
by an un-Christian spirit. This is
very far from the facts.
I have explained in detail both
to Dr. Judy and Rev. Stewart the
successive steps by which our
date came to be changed by the
St. Paul Menter Co. from April
fifth to April ninth. I have of
fered to change the date of St.
James’ Fashion Show to April
eleventh even at the risk of having
the Menter Co. refuse to furnish
the styles. I regret exceedingly
the conflict. But more than any
thing else I regret being mis
understood and misrepresented.
As a Christian minister I desire
most to promote the cause of the
Kingdom. This cannot be done
by words alone. I am therefore
making this announcement: I
shall attend St. Peter’s Fashion
Show and do everything possible
to promote its success.

The Pastor’s Aid Society of St.
Peter A. M. E. Church, turned its

elders of the Des Moines and St.
Paul districts, together with their
wives, were the special guests of
the society. The picnic was held
at the home of Mrs. Wm. H.
Hyde, 3832 Clinton Avenue.

PILGRIM BAPTIST CHURCH
An unusual worship service was
held on last Sunday morning. A
wonderful sermonette was de
livered on “What Happens When
Christ Enters a Man’s Life,” by
Rev. Lewis. Rev. Lewis is Mis
sionary from Burma, and he re
lated many of his experiences as a
missionary. The choir rendered
an unusual and touching song
service. Mrs. H. W. Botts was
among the many visitors at Pil
grim on last Sunday morning. A
group of fifteen young people
visited the Crispus Attacks Home
on last Sunday afternoon. Among
the numbers rendered: a series
of vocal solos by Mrs. Gaylord,
and little Miss Barbara Reasby
won a great favor with her solo.
This was the first colored group
to make a visit of this kind in 8

Bethesda Baptist—As foretold
in our last week’s news notes
Sunday proved to be a day of im
portant meeting lasting from the
morning service, presided over by
the Rev. J. J. Clayburn, assistant
pastor of the church, the mass
meeting of the afternoon in the
interest of the Western Baptist
College to the evening service
devoted to an explanation of the
reorganized program of the Urban
League. Full attendance marked
the entire day, culminating in an
unusually large night service pre
senting two speakers discussing
subjects not directly connected
with the Urban League itself.
Mrs. Hattie Bell Smith, president
of the St. Paul Auxiliary of the
League, gave a detailed history
of the organization and of the
work the women of the society are
doing in behalf of Negro uplift.
Chas. W. Washington, executive
secretary of the Twin City League
presided, and outlined briefly the
purpose in giving a larger view
of the work his organization is
attempting. John Thomas spoke
of Nationalism as it affects the
Negro, and Jay Williams gave
some startling information upon
the part the darker races have
played in history. Music was
furnished for all the meetings by
the Gospel Chorus.
Zion Baptist Zion’s Sunday
School still keeps its hold upon
the young people of this church,
103 persons being in attendance
last Sunday. The morning serv
ice brought the usual informative
sermon from the pastor, the Rev.
H. W. Botts, who spoke from the
fourth chapter of Hebrews, his
subject, “Who are the People of
God.” Rev. H. C. White offered
prayer. The smaller number pres
ent at the B. Y. P. U. session was
offset by the larger number, who
