Evidently the work of the Toung Men's Christian Association in Ten nessee is undergoing one of the great est revivals in the history of the movement. A new spirit has been infused into the organization, and ' one cannot mistake the secret of the new growth if he but come in contact with such meetings as the one Just come to a close in; Union City. This was known as the third annual West em Tennessee plder boys' conference, which was held here Friday, Satur day Sunday, Dec. 2, 3 ana . - . - 1 1 V. I Jm-nA mere lo amajn a inspiration with every forward move ment, and in this case the credit goes to Mr. Chester A. Kerr, State Boys' Work Secretary, who was here or ganizing his forces and afterwards in directing the units of .the work. The conference opened Friday af ternoon with registration and assign ment. ' " On Friday nigh-t the conference banquet took place at the Carnegie Library. Landrith Thomas, presi dent Union City Hi-Y. Club, was the toastmaster. The . entire front hall of the building was taken up as the banquet room, and a throng of young ladies were engaged to wait on the tables. , Mrs. Prieto had charge of the banquet, which was, aa usual, one of those delightfully planned and executed affairs It Is always a pleas ure to attend. The toastmaster was Landrith Thomas,' president of the Union City Hi-Y, Invocation was of fered by Minister Baker, . Then a selection of music by the orchestra, Mr. EtT Reeves Adams, saxophone; Mr. W. u. Jtsramnam, drums; Miss Louise Adams, piano. President Thomas announced the order of exercises and the delegates then gave some rousing Hi-Y yells, coming from the delegations in the i order called by Mr. Kerr, 'mere was a spirit of genuine enthusiasm in this all over the hall, Indicating in un mistakable terms that the young men are interested in the Hi-Y work. Mayof Pittman extended greetings in a most generous way; saying that the keys of the city and tne calaboose had been, tendered to the visiting boys and that the good offices of the city had been offered them in meet ing our young ladies. , He was glad to have the privilege and the pleas ure of greeting these young men. There was then Bome singing by a chorus of " young ladies, the high school girls, and it was a musical treat. 1 ' Miss Kathleen Arnold was heard in a reading number that was won derfully original and 'really fine. A response on behalf of the con ference was ocered by Carey Brown, president Memphis Hi-Y. Mr. Brown said that he did not . come to speak but to be taught and to help to make the work of the Hi-Y count for bet ter things. , The chorus was heard again in a charming number and then Rev. Cunningham offered greetings on be half of the churches. It is indeed a pleasure to welcome you husky young brats, said Brother Cunningham. We want you to meet our girls, and who knows but what this might develop in romance and finally terminate in matri mony, but this is not- the on ly reason to welcome the presence, spirit and enthusiasm of these fine toys. It is that the work they are doing may , be a blessing to our schools, our city and our churches. You have our indorsement in the splendid work you, are engaged in. The churches are back of the move ment. I assure you that the slogan , of clean speech, clean sports, clean habits and clean scholarship is one of the finest examples in the world. Says Brother Cunningham, we are with you. You are the baby grand child of the churches, and the arms of the church, are open to you. We offer you our shelter and our hospi tality. Mr. Kerr led in the dedication of tie Hi-Y Hymn", and then came an address by Mr. Fred T. Barnett, "The Aristocracy of Service." Mr. Barnett said that he was a native of Florida but that he had al ways been impressed with the great State of Tennessee. It seems that in Tennessee the sun shines brighter, the birds sing sweeter and the wom en smile more heavenly than any where else in God's universe. Mr. Barnett then reviewed the service of Tennesseans in the battles of King's Mountain, New Orleans, Alamo. One hundred thousand men, the flower and the pride of Tennessee, followed the Stars and Bars in the War of the Secession. Gen, Sherman said of Na than Bedford Forrest that he was the most remarkable of American soldiers. Without military training and experience he was one of the most intrepid, resourceful and suc cessful of all the commanders of Southern or Northern arms. The heart thrills with the story of the volunteer armor, bearers, the sons of Tennessee. It was the same spirit that filled the Thirtieth Division of Tennessee and North Carolina boys in the great European struggle when they crashed thru the Hindenburg line and conquered Prussianism. America is now facing a political crisis, and the thing that will save America is not her wealth, her re nown, but the type of manhood she produces. What is needed is a spe cies of service that will inspire men to nobler aims and purposes. . . There are varying types of service, and the true service is not wholly of the educated types, of the divine right of kings, of the principle that might makes righ. There is only one order of the nobility of service, and that is of God's aristocracy ded icated to man. Jesus gave us an ex ample of the aristocracy of service, and that was in the life that he gare for a lost world. Only those men who have the vis ion of Jesus Christ can appreciate the nobility of service. They become the true aristocrats. Everything for others and nothing for self was the spirit that moved the Earl of Shafts bury as a friend of England's poor. . General Lee's answer after the war to those tempting him to higher callings was a service in founding an institution for the training of the young men of his country. A life of service instead of a life of selfishness is what the world needs to counteract national and racial ha tred; it is the privilege of responding to the call of humanity. No organi zation has a right to existence ex cept as it serves God and the church. The capital and labor question can not be solved until we realize that we are here to serve one another. When Daniel Webster was asked by one of his compatriots what his fellowman grew in Massachusetts, he replied that we grow men, Mr. Barnett spoke at length in an address of which this is only a ref erence and one' that enchained the attention of the Hi-Y audience. SATURDAY'S SESSION. The second day's session met in the auditorium of the Cumberland Church, opening with a business ses sion. The devotional period was led by Dr. E. E. George, general secretary of the Mempht a Y.M.C.A. A feature of the morning meeting was the ad dress "Making Life Count in School," by Fred Barnett, Y. M. C. A. secre tary Vanderbilt Medical School, Nashville. The afternoon period was featured by the talk of Dr. J. L. Kes ler of the Southorn Y. M. C. A. Col lege, Nashville, who spoke on "Mak ing Life Count in the Community." An early adjournment was had in order that the delegates might at tend the basketball game between Jackson and Troy, Jackson being victorious in this. , A supper meeting was held by the delegate leaders at 6 o'clock. . On Saturday night, Dr. Kesler spoke on "Making Life Count in Our State," a fine discussion. On Sunday the pulpits of the dif ferent churche3 were filled aa fol lows: Cumberland Presbyterian Church, Dr. J. L. Kesler Methodist Church, J. D. Jenkins; Baptist Church, C. A. Kerr; First Christian Church, E. E. George. On Sunday ' afternoon .Dr. Kesler spoke again on the general lino of making life count, and this was in the service rendered to mankind in the brotherhood of man . and the fatherhood of God.

Thi3 year more lives will be saved by Christmas seals than ever before, and next year the record will be increased, as the result of the sale of seals which began in Tennes see on Dec. 1 under the direction of the Women's Clubs, the Parent Teachers' Association, the League of Women Voters and the Woman's Christian Temperance Union. These little seals are sold at a pen ny each and as a result of their sale in previous years more than 700 hos pitals are now providing sanatoria for those afflicted with tuberculosis; more than 3,000 public health nurses are being employed; nearly one thou sand fresh-air schools are in opera tion and there are 550 tuberculosis dispensaries. This is only a part of the record of the Christmas seal in the United States. - The organization backing the sale of the Christmas seals m Tennessee are asking that every citizen, male and female, do his or her part in the present sale drive by purchasing a number of these little life-saving stickers to be used on . mails and packages during the joyful Yuletide season, in order that the campaign against the great white plague may be. waged more effectively in 1922 than ever before. . , The appeal this year is being made in the name of those who have suc cumbed to the dreaded disease since the last annual seal sale, with the hope of those behind the drive that the sale of Christmas 1921 may reach such a mark as to enable the prosecu tion of the most telling campaign in Tennessee next year that has ever been waged in any State in the Union.
