INTERESTING LETTER -FROM
SECRETARY DENNIS V. SNAPP.
Mr. Dennis V. Snapp, of Paris,
who is in Birmingham, Alabajma, at
tending a meeting of the Southern
Secretaries of Field Work for the
Methodist church, writes THE
NEWS the following interesting let
ter: "Birmingham, Ala., Jan. 25, 1919.
"THE BOURBON NEWS, Paris, Ky.
- "My stay in Birmingham has been
a most enjoyable one. The divisional
presidents' meeting of the Epworth
League came to a close yesterday af
ternoon. At the close of the last
session of our gathering the Alabama
State Epworth League Cabinet treat
ed the visiting presidents to an auto
mobile tour in and around Birming
hajm. There is every evidenee here
of, wealth and a growing business
town. Since visiting Atlanta, Ga.,
and then Birmingham, I am of the
opinion that" the South will soon rival
the North as a business section, for
these two Southern cities are on the
boom. Birmingham is progressive,
hospitable and has a city pride.
There are some magnificent buildings
here and I never saw as many up-to-date
hotels and restaurants. The
resident section is very beautiful.
One very striking characteristic
that has come to my attention is that
girls are filling places, which are
usually filled by men in Kentucky.
All operators of elevators are wo
men. Any nupiber of the barber
shops has women barbers and there
is quite an incentive for me to get
shaved two and three times a day.
In the theatres, picture shows and
opera houses we are very graciously
ushered to our seats by ,as attractive
girlsas you will find anywhere, and
I am from Kentucky and recognize
the fact in making this state
ment. The fair sex" are also news
paper reporters. Every time one of
these fair reporters come to the- hotel
to write up our meeting there was al
ways a dispute as to who would be
the one to be interviwed. The last
one secured our photograph for one
of the Birmingham dailies.
W have decided to have a similar
meeting of the State Presidents each
year and after what I have said you
will not be surprised to know that
Birmingham has been chosen as the
meeting place for our annual assem
blies. All of the bechelor-presidents
were unanimous in this decision.

tant features of the meeting this
year was to forward plans for the
great" Missionary Centenary of the
Methodist church. Of the $35,000,

years the Epworth League was the
first of our church organizations to
pledge a definite part. The Leagues
of Southern Methodism will raise
$380,000 in addition to furnishing
hundreds of "missionary volunteers
who will go to the foreign fields. It
is an interesting fact and a pride of
all Epworthians that during the past
quarter of a century the Epworth
League has furnished the majority of
the missionaries to foreign and home
