Fred R. j Graves, of Sumner, campaign mana- j ; ger of the Presbyterian Progressive! Program in this synod. This leaves j t 23,000,000 without any church con- j j nection. These figures compiled from a com- j j plete survey of the entire field. Theyj were taken from statistics in states j from West Virginia to Florida, and ! from Missouri to Texas. As a result of its findings, the Southern Presbyterian church is car rying out a general evangelistic move ! ment in this and other synods, leading ; to the enrollment of at least 50,000 new members, it is hoped. The apa i thy towards religion which is being I exhibited at the present time by many ! people must be met by stupendous ef- i ! forts of the church, according to S. j j Waters McGill, director of the Pres | byterian Progressive Program. The family altar and stewardship movements which the church is con ; ducting are expected to become great vitalizing forces for religion. As a ! part of the latter, 100,000 tithers are : being sought. ■ o i ! :t ill /] y g 'TSxj | 3 * >alice BRApy /// The F£rr Fl RRRET" ffh/fl-FRT F/CTURFE GREENWOOD THEATRE MARCH THE 27th. o _ T , have besl cooks n Greenwood.
