1950 Convention Site
Creates Problem for
Southern Baptists

OKLAHOMA CITY. Okia May
20.—The Southern Baptist Con
vention will decide today where
it will meet next year,
j This customarily routine deci
sion will be heard with unusual
j interest since the large outpouring
!of messengers i delegates' and
visitors here, approximately 12,
000. has focused attention on the
necessity of finding a city large
enough to handle the convention
Some officials fear there are
| few cities in the 20 States and
District of Columbia embracing
the convention which are capable
I of handling the crowds. To se
lect Chicago next year means go
ling out of the customary territory
and infringing on a "gentleman s
agreement" between the Southern
and Northern Conventions. Hous
ton, Tex., and Miami. Fla., also
are bidding for the 1950 meeting
The Rev. Dr. R. F. Lee of Mem
phis. Tenn., was re-elected presi
dent of the convention yesterday
Senator Kerr of Oklahoma was
elected second vice president and
the Rev. Dr. J. D. Grey of New
Orleans, first vice president. Sen
| ator Kerr will address the con-,
jvention today.
Major Split Averted.
I The- convention came close to
a major split yesterday after the
Rev. E. P. Elldredge of Nashville,
Tenn., business manager of the
American Baptist Theological
Seminary, submitted a resolution
stating that “no one who be
longs to or affiliates with any
State or local Council of Churches
whicl* is connected with or spon
sored by the Intercouncil Field
Department of the Federal Coun
cil (of Churches) or any one or
more of its six affiliated councils
should be eligible to serve on $my
board, agency or institution of
this conventiQn—either as an of
ficial, employe or board member.1’
Although each Baptist Church
of the convention is independent,
the body is a co-operative ven
ture by these churches. This co
operation expresses itself in the
work of the denomination’s
boards, agencies and institutions.
Several Washington pastors
said passage of this motion might
have forced a complete reorgani
zation of the District Baptist Con
vention since Northern Baptist
Convention churches, whose par
ent body is a member of the Fed
eral Council, are in the Washing
ton group.
Attempt to Delay Motion Beaten.
Efforts by Dr. John Jeter Hurt
of Atlanta to have the motion
postponed for action next year
were defeated, as was a subse
quent move to bring back the re
port later this week.
Passage of the motion would
“immediately disfellowship prac
tically two whole States,” the
Rev. Norman w. Cox of Meridian.
Miss., declared. ^Approval would
do disastrous damage to foreign
missions, to our seminaries, home
missions, to Southern Baptist
work. Southern Baptists are
against the world and Federal
Councils but we do not want to
wreck the convention on account
of this.”
‘‘I never expected to live to
see this day,” the Rev. Dr. Ed
ward H. Pruden of Washington,
pastor of the First Baptist
Church, told the gathering. “It
seems inconceivable to me that
in this year 1949 any one would
even submit that co-operative
relationship to fellow Christians
should incapacitate a man to
serve his denomination. I hope
it will be overwhelmingly de
feated '
Resolution Is Tabled.
Dr Lee then asked that the
-esoiuuon be tabied
"This action is a mistake." he
said “I move that it be re
scinded. We have to take some
time to study this thine
The mouon to table the resolu
tion was then passed
Washington residents expected
to be elected to committee* and
boards today are George B Fraser
Chevy Chase, executive commit
tee the Rev K O White, pastor
I of Metropolitan Church, home
|mission board, the Rev Michael
■ Warr. pastor of Luther Rice Mem
jonal Church, board of trustees
I Southw estern Baptist Theological
Seminary, and Mrs J M Dawson
First Church, education commis
sion
Arnold T. Ohrn. Washington
executive secretary of the Bap
tist World Alliance, told the gath
ering last night that Baptists
could not have fought so well
for the principle of a free church
in a free state without rejecting
infant baptism.
, Sunday Radio Hour Approved.
* In rejecting infant baptism »t
remove the possibility of identify
ing church and nation." Mr Ohrn
declared "Without rejecting in
fant baptism Baptists c*uid never
liad lifted the banner of religious
‘liberty so high and so consistent-,
ly.”
A "rump convention' sponsored
by the Rev. J. Frank Norris of Fort
Worth. Tex., has been held the
past three days at one of the
hotels. At the meeting, considered
by many to be a gathering of those
favoring an extremely funda
mentalist viewpoint, Dr. Norris
charged the Federal Council with
being the "most modernistic and
ecclesiastical organization" of
present times.
A year-round Sunday Baptist
radio hour, starting the first Sun
day in October, was approved
The program, to be heard over a
network covering the convention s
territory, will cost approximately
$240,000.
South Africa will encourage
building new luxury hotels to get
tourist dollars.
