D., Chairman of the Baptist Ministers' Conference of the city of Nashville, ' end the Treasurer of the State Con- vention. As honored guest of the meeting they were both introduced c- and spoke. The meeting however, of the commute was for the purpose of outlining a program for the work to be conducted in this section of the state. First and foremost was the educational and missionary work.

Perhaps one of the biggest items claiming attention of me committee was the unanimous ex tension of an invitation for the Asso- - elation to entertain the State Conven tion as an Association. It;wiU;be remembered that one of the churches - of this city has already extended an : invitation to the State convention to meet here next August. BO the Execu tive Committee felt that the invita tion should be augmented by a special invitation ana that the stae meeting should come under the auspices of the ! , of the Association, and as such they went on record, and the invitation' has already been formulated. It is Understood that the city of Clarksville Irrespective of denomination, has Joined in this general plan, and that tne coming of the Baptists to these parts next August will mean so much. I Rev. Mr. Dennis of Guthrie, Ky! presided during the session. The vari-' ous churches of the city contributed : to the entertainment of the executive meeting. The Revs. Mr. Moore and' Dennis, who are members of the state : ooay and who respresented this asso ciation at a recent meeting held at Smyrna, were enthusiastic over the y success attained. terwards taueht in one of the univer sities and then graduated from the law school of Nashville. Then, too, Tuskegee, Ala., Dec. 8 The bak ery at the Tuskegee Institute has been successfully experimenting with sweet potatoes as a partial substi tute in making bread. This bread is composed of approximately two parts white flour and one part boiled, mashed sweet potatoes. -The result of the use of this combination has been the saving of about 200 pounds of flour each day and there is no very apparent difference between this bread and the bread which is made wholly of wheat flour. The potato bread will be used exclusively at the Institute as a part of Tuskegee's pro gram of war economy. A booklet describing somewhat in detail this experiment with sweet potatoes has been prepared at the Institute. ports of two representatives of the city who had visited our boys in the camps expressed the great need of the boys for the Word of God with them. An appeal was made and the young Men's Christian Association decided at once throw its support. The Women's City Federation indorsed the movement and Nashville's lead ing singers , immediately agreed to contribute their services. Several re hearsals. -have already been held In the parlors of the Y. M. C. A., under movement and have promised to be present. Every one of the schools mentioned will have special numbers. It is stated that after the entertain ment a complete list of all singers who participated in the jubilee chorus will appear in print so that the Nashville men who are in camps preparing to go. to the front will know, to whom they are indebted for (heir : Bible and song book.

Jones declared that the church neeled at this time doers of the word. He 3aid these are crucial hours, not only in the life of our nation, but of civili zation, and we cannot and must not condone the indolent and haphazard. Slavery did much for the Negro, for out of it has come our opportunity, and we must now "go to it." Our children must be educated and our standard of morality lifted, and then our idea of home must ntot be so lightly considered, but weighed and weighed considered. I am one ot the happiest men tonight in the world, Bald the Rev. John A Alex ander, one of the best known colored ministers of the city, to see such an audience. Natcheg is the greatest city In the south, and we are aiming to have here next $uy more than a thousand delegates to our state con vention, . ' and many of our business men hace promised, to assist us in the task before us. The liberty of our great church is the fundamental of i's success, and we are here now to throw off the yoke of thraldom and serve God as we please. Aniens were many, Dr. F. H. Cook, after much business had been transacted and more than fif'y representatives had enrolled and paid, f-ld f bis work as secretary of the National Temperance Board to which he was elected at Atlanta last September. I abhor, said Dr. Cook, and detest Old John Barleycorn, and he mus tgo. This is a country of religious and civil pride and there can be no room for the drunkard or the demon drink, and when I accept ed this post, I meant to rawhide the drinking and immoral preacher. The fight, is on, and the church cannot finish its duty without seeing to the death of the world's greatest enemy. I love Natchez and her people, and am pleading that you open wide your door for the many coming here in July. The following officers were elect ed: President, Rev. Isaac Woods, Gil bert, La.; First Vice-President Rev. George Washington of Concordia; Second Vice-President, Percy Smith, Secretary, Rev. Charles Smith of Natchez; Asst. Secretary Wm.

Olive people are in the midst of a big anniversary celebration. The program proper began Tuesday night when the deacons and oflicers of the church held what might be termed an experience meeting. The seven deacons making up the board with the trustees and several prominent visitors spoke at length, going over much of the ground that had been traversed in the past twenty-five years. Undaunted by the weather and the snow storm a good crowd was pres ent on opening night. Then on Wed nesday night the auxiliary made their reports. Such working units as the North Nashville Sewing Circle, the Woman's Missionary Society, the South Nashville Sewing Circle, Ivy Leaf Sewing Circle, Sun-rise Prayer meeting leaders, and the like, were heard to an advantage. A sermon was preached by Rev. Dr.G. W. Wond bey. The crowd had increased. On Thursday night another special pro gram was rendered and a sermon preached by Rev. G. B. Taylor, D.

Merrill, a prominent young man, was made assistant mana- Flrst Lieut. R. H. Bacote, M. R. C, was the guest of Meharry, Friday and Saturday of last week. The Lieutenant was looking fine, the very picture of health. He is a liv ing example of the superior treat ment accorded soldiers in the Army and camps of the United States. Dr. Bacote left Saturday for Houston, Texas, where we understand he is to be attached to. the "Eight Illinois." The call for the young manhood of the country continues to resound, and the colored boys are not less patriotic than are the men of other races. Go to the front boys give a i full account of yourselves. With the accuracy of your rifle shot and fierce, i Heroic bayonet charge, make and keep the very atmosphere supersatu rated with the true spirit of democ racy, until the proud tyrant's greed for gold and empire shall have been rendered absolutely neutral, thrown out of the solution of the world's peace and progress, thus forming an insoluble ana harmless precipitate; never again to acquire its active. acid properties, with which to cor rode the minds of all freedom loving peonle of the earth. Rev. D. E. H. Rawllngs.'Sec. of Missions of the M. E. Church, South, preached our regular monthly ser mon last Sunday. Not only was the discourse very scholarly and highly instructive, but the speaker possessed rare ability In that his delivery was most forceful. We look forward to the time when we may hear him again. Dr. W. B. Davis of Columbia, Tenn. has Just brought a patient to the Hubbard Hospital. We hope soon to give the general public an extract of the very notable address, "The Ne gro and the present world War," de livered recently by Dr. C. V. Roman. It is well worth reading by all true hearted American citizens. Dr. C. C. Johnson locates In Franklin, Tenn. Dr. C. C. Johnson, who has recently located in Franklin, was in the city this week and visited the state, who are now stationed In the camps. Every effort of the wary and cunning German agent to drive a wedge between the colored citi zens of this country and the "Stars and Stripes," has proven absolutely futile. A more loyal element, than are the colored Americans, is not to be found. On next Sunday at 3:30 p. m., Dr. C. H. Clark, pastor of Mts Olive Bap tist Church will address the Y. M. C. A.

Louisiana Bap tists have been called to meet in spec ial session in this city December 27th, according to an announcement made today by Rev. Wm. Urimble one of the leading Baptists of this section. The purpose of the call is to perfect an organization that will be state wide and for the unification of the Baptist forces. It is under stood that the president of the Na tional Baptist Convention, Rev. Edw. P. Jones will be in attendance at the meeting as guest. The various sec tions of the state have been called upon to Bend a large delegation. This meeting on December 27th was formerly Bet for some time In Jan jaqwaaaa Jlnoin bbai ij inq 'Xatm would be a better time. UaWn.n finishvd his work with tile Imernauonal Lcbson Committee, Dr. Ellington, the Editorial Secretary of the National Baptist Publishing Board, returne 1 from Philadelphia this week. When seen by a Globe representative upon his arrival in the- city he stated that he was highly pleased wilh the. work ol the Lesson Committee ana the until e time that had been spont at the Adelphia Hotel had been con sumed in the consideration of the new cycle of lessons beginning with litis and ending 195. He said that there were marked improvements' over tin; old way of studying the Bible, anil that there is an improved uniform series of Sunday school lee sons adopted by the committee which will give added material, both tn Scripture reference and in lesson, texts for primary, intermediate and adult classes, but that the beginners will be provided for in the usual way. Much significance was t ttached to Dr. Ellington's trip, as he is the only colored representative out of the ten million Negroes in the United States belonging to this committee, who prepares the lessons for all the Sun day schools of the Evangelical de nominations on the North American, and South American continents. It is Bald that about nineteen millions of Sunday school pupils study the Inter--national series and the membership or Dr. Ellington as representative of the National Baptist Publishing Board of which Dr. It. II. Doyd is Secretary is retarded in this rity by the people as a distinct recognition of his abilltv as a theolo.uian and scholar and of the National Paptist Publishing Honrl for its standing among tiip big pub lishing houses in the world. Dr. El lington declared upon his return that ho received Hi" tvost court pous trcnt- j incut. Several Nashville men wero I present, amone whom were Dr. J. 1. j Van Ness, 1). 1)., of the white flaptist Minday School Board, and fiov. Dr. Chapppll. of the white Methodist Publishing Hoard. For the past six years Dr. Elling ton has served on this commlttpp. In speaking about thn periodicals of the Publishing Board and fholr relation to this committee, Dr. Ellington says that the National Baptist Sunday School Lesson Conimpntarv for 1918. together with the Senior Quarterlies, Advanced Quarterlies, Tntpnneliate Quarterlies and Primary Quarterlies, also the Lesson Picture Card and Hible Roll, would be In perfect har mony as all subject and doscrlntlve matter would adhere to the uniform serlPS of the International Lesson, Committee, and that Its uniformity without the addition of different Motto Texts for the various classes would save the confusion that would naturally follow in most Sunday schools.
