The Baptist church of Pullman has
been growing to such an extent that
n Ins outgrown its present building. '
Urery department of the church has
increased. New members have been
iddedTat frequent intervals. The
requirements of the Sunday school
for larger facilities and the social j
seeds of the young people have so
multiplied that the present building
i» not sufficient. Many college stu-j
dents are attending the various serv- !
ices and-the class of Prof. M. K. j
fSnyder has filled the room they have j
been meeting in.
The question of a more modern
and commodious building was re-'
ferred to Dr. A. H. Bailey, superin
tendent of Eastern Washington and
I Northern Idaho, and to Dr. Bruce
Kinney -of Denver, representing th<j i
Northern Baptist convention, for ad
vice. These officials came to Pull
man and made a very careful survey ,
and upon their advice and support
lie church decided to erect a modern
church building that would meet its
growing needs.
; The committee appointed to secure '
a new location decided upon the A.
D. Weiler property on the corner
of Maiden Lane and Ruby street.
This property has now been secured
and the deal closed through the Ha
zen, Hately & McCJaskey realty firm. I
V Thfs site is directly , opposite the j
Episcopal church and one of the
choicest in Pullman. It is the in
tention of the church to move the
residence over to the side of the
property and convert it into a manse
to the pastor and erect the new '
jdarch building upon the corner. It
a admirably suited to meet the nteds
of the student body and form the
«nter for the religious life of the
• Baptist congregation. I
A finance committee has been ap
pointed and while its work has little
■ore than just begun it reports
18000 pledged to date. j
p One of the fine features of tho J
Interchurch World Moveanent is that |
local people, any denomination or
People not connected with any j
church may designate their pledges!
* apply to local religious institu-!
tions that need their support. The
financial canvass of the interchurch I
World Movement will be made April
*5 to May 2. Every individual in;
each community will be given an op-I
portunity to give to protestant
Ulristian work throughout the entire j
United States These pledges may

'ocal religious needs. It is/ confi
dently believed that many Pullman S
".'.ens will aid thus in the erection i
and equipment of the new Baptistl

a speed not exceeding 18 miles an
hour. When the Oak street Inter
