On Friday of last week a commit tee of men interested in the Christian Endeavor work met in this city to consider specifically the religious training of the Negro youth of the South. Prominent in the meeting were several distinguished men, among whom were Dr. W. T. Johnson, of Richmond, Va.; Dr. W. J. Darby, of Evansviiie, ind. lne meeting was participated in by several of the lead ing ministers of the city, and a feel ing of unity was prevalent. Every speech made at the meeting was full o common sense. The expressions showed conclusively that there is a desire on the part of all right-thinking men to put prejudice in the rear and work as a unit to make the world better. A number of addresses were deliv ered by both black and white speakers at St. Paul A. M. E. Church Tuesday night, and as a result of the meeting it is believed by those interested that much good in this direction wa3 ac complished. Rev. J. C. Caldwell, a leading Chris tian Endeavor worker of tho A. M. E. Church, presided over the meeting. The Fisk Jubilee Club furnished mu sic. After opening with devotions conducted by Rev. G. W. Jackson, pas tor of Gay Street Presbyterian Church, five-minute addresses were made by Rev. N. H. Plus, Superintendent of Teacher-Training of the National Bap tist Convention, who represented the Sunday-school, and Rev. W. S. Elling ton, pastor of the First Baptist Church, spoke on behalf of the Baptist Young People's Union. Dr. W. J. Darby, of Evansviiie, Ind., Dr. Ira Landrith, of Belmont College, Dr. R. H. Boyd, Secretary of the Na tional Baptist Publishing Board, and others also delivered timely addresses. The principal address of the evening was delivered by Dr. W. T. Johnson, of Richmond, Va.. trustee of the United Society of Christian Endeavor. Dr. Johnson discussed at some length the work of the Christian Endeavor Society, and gave numerous remedies for the retrogression in church work by the Negro young people, among them was that of religious activity. By giving the young people something to do In a religious way, he declared, and by keeping them in the work of the church, the general cause of civiliza tion will be advanced. He also stated that a broader vision of the conditions that confront a race was had through Christian Endeavor work. By special request of Dr. Darby Bishop Tyree made a few remarks, and in less than five minutes electri fied the audience with his eloquence and wisdom. Benediction was pro nounced by Dr. Miller BETTER THAN EVER. With the anproach of Spring the people of Nashville and the surround ing community are beginning to cast their eyes about for resting places dur ing the hot summer days. There are many groves near the city and places where the people In days gone by could go out at any time and have a picnic or a day's recreation. But with the modern ideas of farming and stock raising has come & great change in the matter of forest and groves. Every available acre of grassy land in this part of the state is used for pas turage and no farmer will rent his grove for a picnic, nor will he allow city people to trample over his srrass. This necessitates the establishment and maintenance of parks and pleas ure grounds for the peoDle of this city. Nashville I? wonderfully blessed In this respect. With the change of conditions as regards to the owners of forests and groves came in existence Greenwood Park. This park was -opened a few years ago and at that v time it was out of the question to ever expect that it would be any more than a field, but the hand of the agricul turalist and landscape gardener and scrutinizing eye of the owner of this park has conformed this field Into a veritable paradise. Greenwood park Is now ranked among the first resorts In the South. Where once stood the corn stalks and the thistles now stand beautiful shade . trees and wide ma cadamized walks, set with beautiful ' flowers and shrubbery. Club houses have taken the places of hay farms and spring houses have sprung up wiheire once the common pond and mud holes stood. It will be remembered that last year the spacious grandstand was de stroyed by fire. This Is being replaced ' by one more modern and of a great er seating capacity. A new dlning hall is in course of erection that will comfortably entertain a party of two hundred. This and many other Im provements will make -Greenwood the equal If not the superior of any park in the South. Another great conven ience that has not heretofore been en- joyed is the car service that will be regular throughout the season. Every tuing has been done to make this park of comfort and pleasure to the Negroes ' of Nashville. If they will take advan take of the opportunity it can be be-t proven when the season opens, tha reputation of the place has always been the best so that the best people feel free to take their families and spend the evening any - day la tas week at Greenwood park.
