Brother Crowe's home paper speaks of him' and his church work as follows: First Christian church of llobart is rapidly taking its place as one of the leading churches of the city and dur ing the ministry of Rev. R. T. Crowe has made much progress. Rev. Crowe came to the field on Feb ruary 2nd of this year and found .the congregation greatly discouraged be cause of conditions which had existed during the war and because of the faet that the church had been without a pastor for several months. His coming marked the turn of the tide in all de partments of the church and the at tendance at Sunday school has increas ed from an average of one hundred one to an average of two hundred and six for the past three months and attend ance at the church services has more than doubled during the past ten months and fifty-eight members have been added during this time, eighteen of whom came during the Hargrove meeting in October. First Christian has tha largest troop of Boy Scouts in the city with five first class scouts, fifteen second class scouts and twenty tenderfoot scouts, and the troop has the honor of having the first first class scout in the city. So mnch interest was evidenced in the scout movement that the Camp Fire Girls were next organized with the maximum enrollment of twenty junior girls at its organization, and these girls are adding much to the Sun day school work of the church. Practi'ally every member of both the Boy Scouts and the Camp Fire lirls are members of the church and with but one or two exceptions all are in Sunday school. Both the Senior and Intermediate Christian Endeavors are represented in the church. Mr. K. Y. Stnwell is president of the Senior organization and its membership is forty-two. Miss Ksther Thomson is superintendent of the intermediates, with fifty enrolled. An orchestra often piece has been organized and plavs each Sunday at Sunday school under the dire 'lion of A.I.Jordan. Mr. Jordan is also sup erintendent of the Sunday school and deserves much credit for its present meniWrship a,nd efficiency. Somu'h of good has been aeeomp- j llshed during the ten months of Iter. I Crowd's ministry that the official board I rtf ia ttmi.li mt It rrvnla m tnnnt M meeting on IVcember6th. extended a unanimous call in him for another rear and this call was unanimously confirm ed by the congregation. t First Christian into be congratulated for its progress and upon having such a man as Itev.
