BURKHALTER Ever feel the thrill from the obubby arms of a little child near and dear to you as they encircled your neck in a fond embrace? Or look into the beautiful frank eyes of that little loved one and contemplate the possibilities that lie hidden in that soul, or what you would not take In exchange for him or her who bears your name and is bone of your bone and flesh of your flesh? Then possibly you havi experi enced something of that divine spirit that prompted the Man of Galilee to exclaim: "Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones,” and "It is not the will of your-Father who is in heaven that one of these little opes should perish." And it is the belief of Southern Baptists in giving a large place to the welfare and all-round develop ment of children in-tin Baptist 75 Million Campaign that they are pur suing a course that h\s the sanc tion of Christ Jesus, the proclama tion of whose Gospel everywhere is always accompanied by larger at tention to the physical, mental, so cial and spiritual development of children. • First Right To Be Well Born. Baptists believe the firs right of every child Is to be well born; that. In the second place, every child has a right to normal and healthful nourishment and physical surround ings during its tend-r years; and in the third place, every child has a rtgit to an education that is adapt ed to its needs, physical, mental and spiritual. Bat what has all this to do with the Baptist 75 Million Campaign? jwu ask. In the first place, while the wel fare of the human race is sought in the campaign, beginning with the cooing tot in the crib and In cluding all needy ones dptvn to those far adygnegd In the evening of life, special consideration has been given the welfare of the little folks In such special programs as doub ling the enrollment in the Sunday Sehools throughout the homeland; ! strengthening the weak churches in both the rural districts and the crowded centers of population In order that they may be able to dis charge their full duties to the com munities in which they are located, thus providing better atmospheres to.' the rearing of children; enlarg ing the work of the Woman's Mls slonary^Union and its auxiliary or ganizations In the training of chil dren and young people In Christian character and service; prevision of better schools In the rural districts, especially In the mountainous sec tional the enlargement and fuller equipment of Baptist educational institutions throughput the South land where children as they develop Into young men and women can be •more adequately trained for lives of social and religious usefulness at the same time their minds and bodies are cultivated; and the pro vision of Good Will Centers in the large cities and mining and factory districts for reaching not only the children, but helping the parents as well provide better homes and home surroundings for the little ones whom God has entrusted to their care and rearing Hospitals Help the Uttle Ones. That the children who coma into the world with weak bodies, who contract illness or are maimed by accident may have a larger chance to become sound in body and thus be equipped for a larger develop ment, happiness and usefuineas in the world. Southern Baptists have provided hospitals in almost all of their states, while under the impe tus of this campaign the states which have not made such provis ions heretofore have agreed to set aside certain sums raised during this campaign for the erection of modern hospitals within their bor ders. Indicative of the special in terest taken in the welfare of chil dren, special children's depart ments, with roof gardens and other modern equipment specially design ea to meet the seeds of sickly, uu* der-Qourlshed and undeveloped Uttle folka may come and under the care of the beat children's experts which the cities afford, have a larger chance to attain the normal healthy lives which it is believed God wills that they should have, have been provided In some of these hospitals. But probably the langest contribu tion Baptists have made to the wel fare of children in the South is in the establishment of the string of orphanages, there being one of these jq practically every state within the bounds of the Southern Baptist Convention. And the lar gest possible provision is being made at these institutions for the homeless tots who have been robbed by the Qriia Reaper of their natural protectore. Time was In this coun try when many people felt that or phans were entitled to little consid eration further than a shelter, and for a long time they felt that if chil dren without fathers and mothers were placed In homes where they got food and shelter In exchange for hard manual labor they had?been really served. Of course, many childless couples with high ideals were glad to get children upon whom they could bestow their af fection and whom they were glad to provide with a real home, but many more Instances have been wit nessed of persons securing orphans solely for the economic benefit they could reap from the labors of these helpless ones and the situation was neither happy nor helpful for the children involved. Provide Homes For the Homeless. In breaking away from this cus tom of placing children end in pro viding institutions as nearly like genuine homes as possible, where fatherless and motherless little folks can be developed in mind, body and soul under environments Just as wholesome and happy as it is possible to procure, Baptists have beeu piofteers. Naturally, no insti tution can have the same environ ment that a real home, presided over by a natural father and moth er, and occupied with these parents only by brothers and sisters of full blood affords, yet an approximation of that Ideal is had in a number of the Baptist orphanages of the South through the establishment of a cot tage system where a limited number of children are placed in a cottage which they call home, under the su pervision of a kindly, tactful matron and patron, who study the charac teristics and qualifications of each individual, assign him or her to tasks as nearly in line with the act ual bent of the child as practicable. and take as large personal interest In his or her problems and develop ment as possible. Each of these cottages has Its own garden, flower plat, wood yard and other Institu tions, affording special individual chores for the children, and except at school, religious services, picnics and the like the children are reck oned with in terms of the individual and the family rather than in those of the mass. But the Baptist 71 Million Cam paign does not confine its interest in children to those of the homeland. There U now in Europe a com mission represeating the campaign studying to see how this movement can aid most effectively In the re construction of that country, espe cially those portions of it which wore devastated most largely by contending armies. “Twenty million dollars could be expended with economy and high Christian purpose In the care of the widows and orphans of our spiritual kinsmen In Europe who have suf fered through these yatrs of war and in the erection of houses of wor ship, schools and the like,” Dr J. F. Love, chairman of the commission, declared on the eve of his departure, aid while it Is not contemplated that this Bum will be available for this purpose under the present pro gram, it is the settled purpose of the campaign to aid reconstruction' in France. Belgium, Italy, Csecho Slovakia, the Ukraine and other parts of Russia just as fully as pos sible and Dr. Love has urged the I Baptists to greatly oversubscribe the $76,000,000 sought in order that there may be additional funds to ap ply to the European situation. Uplifting Children of Many Lands. And the work for the physical, mental and spiritual uplift of the children in Cuba, Panama, Mexico, Brazil* Argentine, Chile, China, Ja pan, Syria, Persia and Galilee, in which fields, also, missionary work is being carried on by the Southern Baptist Convention at this time. With the exception of Japan the education of the people has been very backward and children! are always the losers where ig-; norance and superBition prevail. In China, for Instance in spite of the' rapid progress that has come to that j country within recent years, chil- j dren have little or no chance for normal development except in those homes that have been reached with the enlightenment and love of the gospel. Girls are still unwelcome because of their small economic value, and there are still posted on the preserves of some of the wealthy residents whose estates adjoin the rivers such signs as, "No children shall be drowned on these prem ises." And the treatment for dis eases prescribed by the heathen physicians in some of these conn tries is worse than death itself. bnrouded in ignorance, supersti tion and sin as the* lives of the children of these lands are in most cases, the missionaries represent ing the Southern Baptist Conven tion are convinced that schools for the enlightenment of the minds of the children, and modern hospitals where medical and surgical skill can heal their diseased and maimed bodies and put them on the road to happier and more efficient lives, are fundamental to the success of missionary endeavor and the moral and spiritual uplift of the people. So part of the proceeds of the Baptist 75 Million Camalgn will go to the establishment of kindergar tens and other Christian educa tional tntsltutions, hospitals and homes where orphans can be cared tor in the foreign lands. Our mis sionaries have for a long time been handicapped tfy lack of money and other facilities. Frequently they have rescued children who have been thrown out to starve and after resuscitating them, given these out casts a permanent place in their own homos, where many of them have grown into nseful Christian workers. Little Money Does Big Work. For the sum of $25 a boy or girl cau be maintained ^n one of the mission boarding schools for a year,! while numerous native children are maintained and instructed in the homes of the missionaries at a cost , of $1$ a year. J - >• Ozerinde Nathaniel, of Ogbomoso, Africa, was reared and instructed in the home of Dr. C. E. Smith, Bap tist missionary, became a Christian and so ambitious was he to learn that after he had completed the schools in Africa he came to Amer ica and entered Virginia University at Richmond, where he took off all honors, at the same time working for all his expense money. He re turned to Africa and is vice-presi dent of the boys' academy in his home city. A day school in China, one of the greatest evangelizing forces known to the mission board, and which is proving the physical, moral, mental and spiritual salvation of the girls whom it reaches can be maintained for about $70. If so large a work has been done already, why the need of increas ing it through the Baptist 75 Mil lion Campaign? some may ask. The answer is that the work that has been done in the homeland and on the foreign fields is a very, very small part of what needs to be done. The cry for help is coming up from hundreds of millions of helpless children in all parts of the world who need and crave the priv ileges and bleesingB of a great Christian civilization such as you covet for the children of your own. u is to neip answer this call that the campaign was launched. Other Interests than those of children will be fostered at the same time. Of the $20,000,000 apportioned to foreign missions a considerable sum will go to sending more mis sionaries to foreign fields to pro claim the gospel to adults as well as to children; $12,000,000 will go to home missions for its work of evangelism, enlistment, church building, mountain schools and the like in its vast field, along with special work among the foreigners, Indians and Negroes; $11,000,000 will go to state missions in an ef-( fort to win to Christ the 13,000 000 unsaved white people within the territory of the Southern Baptist Convention; $20,000,000 will be ap plied to Christian education in en larging and endowing the Baptist educational institutions of the South; $4,800,000 will go to the hos pitals; $4,700,000 to the orphan ages; and $2,000,000 for the relief of the aged ministers of the Bap tist church who have worn them selves out In the service of God on salaries that have permitted ‘hem to save nothing for old age. But Investment In the salvatioa of the children will bear larger and larger returns throughout the years because millions of them will live long enough to bless others and ta raise up still other children wfce will pass on these bias '
