consideration of the body as a whole.
A Wise County Evangelistic As

Conference which just closed at Hot
Springs, Ark. The day has arrived
when the lay members of the Metho?
dist Episcopal Church,South, ait coin
lug Into their own. the} have power*
and opportunities exit tided to them
never before ..tl. t.-d in tin history <>f

The young people of the ehuri h
came in for their share ol attention
at this conference. Epworth Leaguers
of the county will meet Eri.iay even
ing. July 11. at the Norton Contniunl-i
ty Center for a great time. Each j
league will come in a hotly, sit as such
in th<' meeting, each leaguer will'
bring a basket lunch, ami after the;
business session there will be a so-1
ciol hour and a big spread. Keen
[ everything ? oil this date, Kpworth j
; Leaguer, come to Norton for we are
' going to have a good time.
j A committee was appointed by the ;
chair to work out a plan by which all j
the Sunday Schools in the count)
could be brought into a union with j
the aim of strengthening this phrase
of the cli?rch weil..
Another matter which provoked
much discussion, was the ipiestion ot"
moving the District ParSotiage, how.
located at Big Stone Cap, to some I
town more centrally located. While
this pastors' conference had no power !
for Initialing action in this direction,!
it likely will be the means of some j
of the towns located in the district
which can offer better advantages]
than Hit; Stone Cap taking '.In- matter <
up with the propel authorities at Hie
next district conference. But they
are going to have to hustle if they
olfei a finer place to live than Big
Stone Cap after you rtet there.
