Thls lnstitutlon comblnes religloiis work with the re? llef of economic and social problems. turnlng away no wnnderer who applles to its doors, however poor or neglect ed or how much nf an outeast he mny be, or however crowded the institution. All got a bath, a bed and a breakfast. nnd tho kindly oftlecs of llie superln? tendent '.n securing employment lf It be posslble. From Ihe Fnr AVest. I>r. AValtcr Llndley. of Los Angeles, chairman of tbe commlttee on'publlc health, is one of the foremost me bc-rs of the conference. He Is editor of the Southern Callfornla Practltioner nnd dean of the Medlcal Collego of the Unlverslty of California at Los Angeles. A cnreful student of tuberculosis. he believes that the government, or pri? vate charltable orgnnizatlons, should establlsh a sanatorium for negrr elther ln tho mountains of AVestern North Carolina or in East Tennessee. ns a posslble means of preventing the spread of the dlsease among the col? ored race. "I was particularly inter r-stcd in the address of Pr. Grandy," he .snld, "because lt dlsclosed condltlons Ini Ihe South wlth whlch the country gen? erally is not entlroly famlllar." As 'medica! dlrector of the Callfornla Hos? pltal, and in connectlon wlth hls otheri dutles at home, he has been brought Into closo contact with tubercular pa lients and appreciates the value ofl what can be done In the way of saving, them. Plenicd -Wlth II. Superlntendent George B. Davls. of Richmond, who has attended nine suc cessive meetlngs of the conference, and who was instrumental In bringing it to Itichmond thls year, said yesterday that there are more than 1.200 members now in attendance. "I am sure," he declared. "that it comes up to the usual standard. In Mlriheapolis last spring 1 told m&'TVlerids that they would re? ceive i?i'v6tv -cordlal welcome here. and there is a world of satlsfactlon ln knowlng that they belleve my 'predic tlon has been ahundantly sustalned. The conference is here for work and not for pleasure. although lts members derivc- much real pleasure from the sessions, which shows how deeply they nre interested in the general welfare of those they seek to help." Tbe Fame of Atlanta. "When the conference met a few years ago In Detrolt." sald Dr. T. D. Longino. of Atlanta. "I declded that lt would be a good plan to have lt visit my town next tlme. and I went to work. It may secm strange, but I did not Vnow a single member. The task seemed dilncult. but when I got busy and informed thc conference that At? lanta was anxious to be the host. the movement spread and I captured lt. "How do I account for it? Slmply em the ground that the reputatlon ot Atlanta has spread to all parts of tho eounl ry. Tho people have heard of tlie Atlanta splrlt, nnd the ronferonce found that lt was all there." Thc Good AA'ork. 'The principle upon whlch the :? clety of Si. Vincent de Paul la four... ed ls unique," said Mr, Thomas G. Ita ? pK-r. editor of the N'.-w Orleans Plca yune, "nnd the Bystem whlch we havo followed has brought much relief to thoso in distress. There aro no du n<> llnes, no parades, no banncrs. Tho numbers visit the sick. They vl the poor. "thus changlng the old plan by whlch the poor had to call at charl? table headquarters. Although the .;" clety celebrated Its sovoiuy-flfth an? niversary here, Its membershlp is nol lBt-ge. and last year lt dlstrlbutod *400 ? coo. ii?/? cost belng loss than 14,000, lt endeavors to follow tho teachlrigs of thc- Savlor, by glvlng ald to nll. Chrlst sald that Hla nelghhor was not thc- man who llved next door, So lt |s wlih our order." Mr. Rapler was one of tho active workers in the con ferenre. 11* brought good reports of the work ln New Orleans, Prominent Delegate, Mr. George L.

Although he Is noi down on the offlclal program fnr an address, it is probable that he will take part ln the dlscusslon of Important toplcs. He is I pnrtlcularty interested in the lotlglng liouse problem. "I realize," said Mayor Hlbbard.

He continued: "The newer textbooks on psychology have Invented new phrases for old ideas. We old fellnws who took our unlverslty deprrees before the days of 8tanley Hnll have to learn the new language of the trlbe. They talk now nf psychlc force, when all they mean is that latent power fnr Rood that rests In every individual?a force which may be called into play by tbe work of re llKinn or by any npllftlng thought.

Speaklng ns a Souther woman to Southern people. she polnt ed opt the need of a flner klnd of oi g.-mlzcd soclal service in the South, an held out an lnvltatlon to the youn people of the South to seek n tralnln whlch would enable them to flnd thel llfo work In thls fleld of activlty. Sh charncterlzed tho successful socle worker. as one having a "sanctifie sporting lnstlnc.t, an lnstlnct whlc makes one scheme and plan, whlch i couragsons, patlent, and resourcefi. never baffled, never dtverted from lt rjuarry." The report, whlch was the result o a survey of the whole fleld of organize charlty in the L'nlted States. Indlcate that the size of tho force engaged I thls work ls constantly urowlng, tha salarlps are constantly Increaslng. an the standard of efflclency ls beln, raised.

In conclusion the report polnted ou the necesslty for the rlght l.ind o publlclty ln cnarltable work, as foi lows: "We do not make sufflclent!: clear the polnt of connectlon betweei the general plan of reform and tho in dlvldual instance to whlch lt may bi applled.

Thp flitireli ln OrKniilred Cbarity. The Ilev. Fnther Willlam J. Kerby, profesnor of soclology nt the Catholl-: Unlverslty ln Washlngton, D. C, took Issue, ln hls address, wlth a numh-ir of prominent prelates who have recent? ly made nttacks upon organlzed charity. Father Kerby believes ln organlzed boneflcencc ns opposed to unorganlzel or promlscuous phllnnthrophy, and h'l sees a dlstinct opportunity for the church to assume a deflnlte part ln the work of organlzed charlty. Ho sald ln part: "It ls recognized thnt self-help ls the best help; that good housekecplng ls an es.-?entlai In a home: that at best thls ls not an easy thlng; and finally that very real obstacles stand ln the way of the poor who mlght be brought to lovo nnd wish for sweet and attrac? tlve homes. Some of these obstacles may be overcome by thn poor famlly under proper dlreetlon. The question li proposed: Can any Kood bc done toward that end by organlzlng famllles Into small competlng groups, and givlna prizes for tbe best housekecplng acv cordlns? to stnndards establlshed foi the purpose?" Offern Gpnernl I'lnn. Father Kerby advocated thls general ldea, but offered no partlcular plan. Ho submltted the following general feature** for the consideratlon of tht conferenco: "Aim?to stlmulate toward clean!! ness, neatneis and order, caro of chll? dren. Intelllgeni outlay of income. etc "t'onipetlrijr Group?To conslsc ol only number of famllles. classltled by Income, working downward from thos* who need the least help, and mak? lng allowances for clrcumstances to even up relativc chances. "Method?Famllles are Instructed as to detalls of the standard. An unex pected vlsit Is made by each of three vlsltors ln a glven perlod. Observa tions are made by a schedule and prizes are awarded on theso report.-. "Modlflcatlona?The plan mlght be adopted as a nelghborhood affalr, or It mlght be taken up hy rellglous or? ganizations devoted to charity. Thc - i groups of famllies, or even the moth? ers, might merely form a housekeep ers* club. Il mlght be made a feature of a settlement. "Tent?The plan ls worked success fully In a number of citles ln Belgium. As a strict competltlve process It is formally recognized by the commu? nlty, and the dlstribution of prizes l_ made a grand occaslon by men of ernlnence and members of the rov.-u family. Dlfferences of temperament and ln? stltutlons mlght be against the plan In thc l'nlted States. but a dlscusslon-of It should be of advantage. Two Prpndaea?A Conclusion. Mlss RIchmond's subject, "The Famlly and the Soclal Worker," was cleverly handled. 'The family." she sald, "is u sylloglsm?two premlses and a con? clusion?tho father, the mother and the child." Mlss Richmond dwelt at length upon thc famlly as a unit. say? lng that when lndustry, for Instance. intcrferes with the family, the lndus? try must suffer. She warned soclal workers that thc only safe course In ?deallng wlth destltution, suffering, vlce i and crlme is to proeeed upon the basls I that the famlly Is, and always will be, | the real soclal unit. Inslstlng that tha I forces of nature whlch make for a I stronger and hlgher famlly llfe should be taken Into account ln all charltable and correetlonal work. J. Taylor Ellyson. Rlclimond.
