Moderator, Rev. J. R. Bridges, D. D., on the text— "For we 
have not a high Priest which cannot be touched with the feel- 
ing of our infirmities ; but was in all points tempted like as 
we are, yet without sin." Heb. 4:15. After the sermon the

Pd. Salary of S. Clk and Treas, year 1920- '21 L 

To Expenses of S. Clerk and Treas. This year to date, 

(including postage, office expenses, etc.,) 4.20 

$1164.87 
Balance in Bank $ 263.19 

All of the Presbyteries, except Concord and King's Mountain, 
have paid their assessments in full. Concord is due a balance of $65.- 
00, and King's Mountain is due the whole of her Assessment $65.00. 

At the last meeting of Synod, it ordered that the assessments be 
increased to the total amount of $1000.00. This was about 65 per 
cent increase for each Presbytery, making the amounts stand as fol- 
lows: 

Orange $165.00, Concord $165.00, Fayetteville $220.00, Wilming- 
ton $100.00, Mecklenburg $210.00, Albemarle $75.00 and King's Moun- 
tain $65.00. Total, $1000.00. 

This amount is not sufficient to meet the necessary expenses of 



Synod of North Carolina 545 

the Synod. It is true there is a balance in the treasury today of 
$263.19, and there are no outstanding debts, but this amount will no 
much more than pay the salaries and expenses of your clerk for this 
meeting of Synod, much less the printing of the minutes of this meet- 
ing, with the added cost of printing the roll of the elders and deacons. 

Your Treasurer has no recommendation to make but unless the 
assessment is increased, he does not know how to proceed, except to 
borrow money, as necessity may demand, until next October. 

Eespectfully submitted, 

D. I. CEAIG, Treasurer. 

Subsequently the Auditing Committee made the follow- 
ing report which was adopted : 

REPORT OF AUDITING COMMITTEE 

The Auditing Committee begs to report: 

That they have examined the Treasurer's book and vouchers, 
and find the disbursement of the funds in his hands have been prop- 
erly made, and all funds duly accounted for. 

The Committee recommends that each Presbytery be requested 
to forward the Treasurer a 50 per cent extra assessment April 1st. 
This will place cash enough in the Treasury to enable him to pay 
all bills in cash and not have to borrow from banks, leaving at the 
end of the year balance enough to carry him through the incoming 
year, with the regular assessments as now paid. 
Eespectfully submitted, 

PETEE S. GILCHEIST, Chm. 
A. M. TAIRLEY, 
C. F. EITCHIE. 

9. A number of excuses for absence were referred to the 
Committee on Leave of Absence. 

10. A communication from ]\Iiss Mebane was referred to 
the Home Mission Committee. 

11. A communication from Dr. H. H. Sweets was referr- 
ed to the committee on Systematic Beneficence.

REV. JOHN RANKIN HERNDON 

John Rankin Herndon, son of Jacob C. and Martha B. Herndon, 
was born in Rutherford County, Tennessee, August 22, 1862. After 
finishing his studies in the schools of his native county he entered 
the Southwestern Presbyterian University; graduating from the lit- 
erary department in 1886, and from the theological department of 
the same University in 1889. He was ordained to the gospel minis- 



Synod op North Carolina 547 

try in April, 1889, by the Presbytery of Nashville. His first pastorate 
was served in the Westminster church, Nashville, Tennessee, 1889 to 
189-1. For the year following this work he was Evangelist for the 
Presbytery of Nashville. In January, 1896, he accepted a call to the 
pastorate of the First Presbyterian Church, Johnson City, Tennessee. 
From there he was called to Glade Springs church in Virginia where 
he remained until August, 1907, at which time he became associate 
editor of the Christian Observer, Louisville, Kentucky. In 1908 he 
accepted a call to the church at Cleveland, Tennessee, continuing his 
work on the editorial staff of the Christian Observer. He remained 
in this field of labor until the Autumn of 1915, when he accepted the 
pastorate of the Presbyterian church of Ocala, Florida. He accepted 
a call to the pastorage of the Waughtown Presbyterian church, Win- 
ston-Salem, N. C, in August, 1919, and was installed pastor of that 
church, September 28, 1919, where he remained until the time of his 
tragic death. 

Mr. Herndon was married to Sue Eogan Wood, June 29, 1899, and 
to this union were born two daughters, Sarah and Margaret. 

The life of this servant of God was characterized by earnest de- 
votion to the work of his Master, the evangelistic note sounded clear- 
ly in all of his preaching and bore much fruit through his ministry. 

As a man, he represented the fine type of citizen that every com- 
munity delights to claim — cultured, refined, endowed with a splendid 
mind and noble Christian heart that led him to humbly offer these to 
the service of his fellowmen. The section of Wiuston-Salem where he 
spent the last days of his life knew his true worth as a citizen and 
friend. 

As a Presbyter, he knew the work of the church at large, had 
a high and noble conception of her mission, possessed a wide, personal 
acquaintance with the personnel of the church, and always delighted 
to aid in the work of the Courts. He served as Stated Clerk of his 
Presbytery in Tennessee, as Eecording Clerk for the Synod of North 
Carolina, and as Permanent Clerk or Orange Presbytery. 

His death came in a sudden and tragic manner on December 22, 
1920. While returning from the Post Office, across the street a few 
blocks from his home in Waughtown, he was struck by an automo- 
bile and killed instantly. 

Strong in body, brilliant in mind, noble in spirit, devoted and 
loving in heart, active in service — ^called suddenly, but ready to go. 

T. W. SIMPSON, Committee. 



548 Minutes of the 



REV. J. C. KENNEDY 

J. Columbus Kennedy was born in Mecklenburg county, North 
Carolina, December 13th, 1834. He departed this life at Kannapolis, 
North Carolina, December 12th, 1920. 

In 1849, he on confession of faith in Christ, was received into 
membership of Sharon church witliin whose bounds he was born. 

Although born blind he had earnest desire to preach the gospel 
of the Master he so devotedly loved. Early in life he learned to read 
the old-fashioned raised script Bible. This massive volume he car- 
ried with him on his many journeys and it was ever the object of 
his solicitious care. He truly became a man of one book and an able 
expounder of the great fundamental doctrines of grace. 

His long cherished desire to preach the word was at length realiz- 
ed — he being licensed by Mecklenburg Presbytery in 1885. He was 
ordained by Concord Presbytery in 1891. Handicapped by lack of 
sight he never became a pastor but making long journeys from his 
home at Mount Mourne, North Carolina, he traveled his native State 
and often into adjoining States gladly availing himself of every op- 
portunity to preach the gospel. 

He was deeply interested in men and most keenly did he enjoy 
visits in Christian homes. Family relationships and marriages inter- 
ested him and of all men the writer has known, he was best informed 
on such matters, being able to trace kinship of families he had visited 
from the Valley of Virginia into Georgia. 

Often in my home has he opened his heart and his inner desires 
and expressed hope that God would call him home by time he reached 
three score and ten and before decrepitude and complete dependence 
on others would be his portion. But God's ways are not our ways. 
In providence of God, dullness of hearing added to his congenital trou- 
ble and later on a severe fall left him a helpless cripple for remainder 
of his life. It was through much tribulation he entered into the 
Kingdom. But finally, the ears dulled to the voice of loved ones on 
earth, opened to hear the new song of heaven like the Seer on Patmos 
heard it "as the voice of many waters and as the voice of a great 
thunder and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps." 
Eyes ever blind to earth's beauties had on their first vision, the glo- 
ries of heaven and to him was fulfilled the promise of old, "Thine 
eyes shall see the King in His beauty, they shall behold the land that, 
i^ afar off." " J- M. GRIEK. 



Synod of North Carolina 549 

JAMES McIVER WICKER 

Rev. James Mclver Wicker was born December 28, 1885, in Lee 
County, then Moore county, near Sanford, North Carolina. 

In his childhood, he attended the neighborhood schools. He went 
to the Bingham school at Mebane, and finished his course there in 
June, 1880. He taught at Alamance church in Guilford county in 
the fall of 1880, and the spring of 1881. He went to Texas in August, 
1881, and taught there until February, 1882. Then feeling the call to 
enter the ministry urgent, he resigned and went to Princeton Univer- 
sity, then, the college of New Jersey. He entered the Freshman 
Class, half advanced, in February and graduated in June, 1885. He 
entered Princeton Theological Seminary in September, 1885, and grad- 
uated in June, 1888. He spent his summer vacation in 1887, in Degby, 
Nova Scotia, supplying a vacant church. Immediately after gradua- 
ting he was called to Shennandoah church, Pennsylvania, where he 
remained three years. He was then called to Edge Hill church, Penn- 
sylvania, in 1891. His pastorate at Edge Hill was very successful and 
during his stay there, a very handsome church building was erected. 

He was married to Miss Margaret Gilmour, October 1, 1891. 

He was called to Puritan church, Philadelphia, in 1897. This was 
a fruitful pastorate, and he deemed his best work as a minister was 
done there. During his service there, the congregation erected a 
handsome church building. He resigned his pastorate there in 1909, 
after successful work for the Master for twelve years, and came to 
St. Pauls in Fayetteville Presbytery, North Carolina, the summer of 
that year. He preached in several charges in Fayetteville Presbytery 
and had a pastorate of several years at Lumber Bridge church. 

His health failing in his later years, he retired from regular ac- 
tive labors, and in his sixty-sixth year passed away to his heavenly 
home, and reward. 

He was a man of varied and ripe scholarship, a thorough Cal- 
vinist, could deliver an edifying Theological lecture, and preached 
impressive sermons. He was modest and retiring in his disposition, 
would rarely pass for his worth among his brethren, and would be 
most esteemed by those who knew him best. His record is with his 
Lord, and in th^ Jieaj-fs of those whom he longest served. 

H. G. HILL, Committee. 



550 Minutes of the 



REV. E. W. SOUDERS 

Rev. E. W. Souders was born March 7, 1843, at New Plymouth, 
Ohio, and spent the greater part of his childhood and young manhood 
days in that State. He was educated and trained for his life work 
there — taking his academical course at Wittenburg College, Ohio, and 
his Theological training at the Seminary of Springfield, Ohio, where 
he graduated in June, 1866. He was ordained August 5. 1857, by the 
Evangelical Lutheran Synod. In the Lutheran church he remained 
for 16 years, at the end of which term of years, he came to the Pres- 
byterian church. The following are some of the churches of which 
he was pastor in his faithful service to the Kingdom of Christ: 

Circlesville, Ohio, Carthage, Hlinois, and Clinton, Indiana. His 
service in the Presbyterian church, North, covered a period of about 
17 years. He labored under diflSculties on account of impaired health, 
suffering at times with a bronchial trouble which eventually caused 
him to lay aside his ministerial labors for a time. About the year 
1900 he came South seeking a better climate for his health — locating 
in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Here he rested and gradually grew 
better until the year, 1903, he determined to go back to that work he 
loved best, and applied for admission into Fayetteville Presbytery 
and resigned from Presbytery of Crawfordsville, Indiana, in the fall 
of 1903. 

He was called to churches of Kenly, Smithfield and Oakland. Fay- 
etteville Presbytery which churches he served very acceptably for five 
years. During this period he also served as stated supply the church 
at Dunn, North Carolina, beginning his services there in the year, 
1904. In 1908, he was permitted by Fayetteville Presbytery to re- 
sign his position as pastor and stated supply of the above named 
churches, and accept a call to the Congregational church at Southern 
Pines, North Carolina. Here he finished his duties as an active 
preacher of the Gospel. (After two years in this pastorate, his health 
failed again, and he retired from active labors to spend the rest of 
his days as an invalid. He became totally blind in 1911, and that 
affliction with feeble health in other ways, caused him to have to 
cease absolutely all active labors. 

Those who knew him best and had opportunity to observe him, 
say that in all his afiiictions he maintained a submissive and uncom- 
plaining spirit. He quietly acquiesced in what he knew to be his 
Master 's will. 

Brother Souders was naturally a man of sweet spirit and gentle 
disposition as the writer knew him. A man modest in his manner 
and yet firm in his stand on principles of right and wrong. As a. 



Synod of North Carolina 551 



Presbyter he was uot heard often on the floor of the Church Courts, 
but was wuse and helpful in his counselling in matters of importance 
in the work of Christ's Kingdom. In his every day walk he exempli- 
fied the fact that he was a man of God and loved His Holy Laws. In 
his daily contact with men, he was sociable and companionable. While 
modest and unassuming, he impressed you with his quiet firmness. As 
a preacher, he was far above the average. In his sermons he used 
some of the most expressive, impressive and yet chaste language. His 
manner of delivery was very pleasant, and his discussion instructive. 
He made his way into the hearts of people where he w^as pastor, and 
w^as at any time a welcome visitor in their homes. He loved his work 
for he loved the souls of men, and it was a heavy cross to be compell- 
ed to lay aside and be unable to do anything for the cause to which 
he dedicated his life. 

In the very beginning of his ministerial life he was happily mar- 
ried to Miss Bunnavista Morgan, with whom he lived 55 years, and 
who, with two sons, survive him. After a long period of patient wait- 
ing, the call came for him to go up higher. On ]M^y 30, 1921, he pass- 
ed to his eternal reward. In that long solitude as shut out from 
joy of earth, he was shut in with the privilege of close and sweet 
communion with his heavenly Father, and, that fellowship ripened 
him for the Home that the Saviour prepared for him. 

He was taken back and buried in the land of his birth, and 
there he rests from his earthly labors, but his work done here in 
this Southland and elsewhere, is going on and will continue to fol- 
low him. 

L. SMITH, Committee. 

REV. FRANK L. JOHNSTON, D. D. 

On June 6, 1921, there passed from our midst to his eternal re- 
wardj a man of unusual worth and ability, a quiet man, learned, gift- 
ed man, whose soul was on fire for the Kingdom of God, whose devot- 
ed service was poured out without stint or measure, whose love for 
Christ 's Kingdom and for those for whom Christ died, was so great 
that he literally burnt out his physical powers iu consuming energy 
for the work. , 

Frank Lovejoy Johnston was born March 4, 1864, at Byron, Illi- 
nois. After his preparatory and collegiate work at "W?heaton Col- 
lege, Illinois, he attended Yale Theological Seminary, from which he 
graduated in 1892 and entered the ministry of tha Congregational 
church. 

In June, 1895, he married Miss Hitty DeGraff of Omaha, Nebras- 



552 Minutes of the 



ka. His wife, one sou and four daughters survive him. 

Most of his ministerial life was spent in the Congregational 
church in tlie following pastorates: Unitown, Washington, Omaha, 
Nebraska, Valley Junction, Iowa, Mt. Pleasant, Iowa, and Tabernacle 
church, Kansas City, Mossouri; the last named pastorate extending 
from 1.904, to 1914. In the Presbyterian church, he was pastor at 
Edgeley, North Dakota, East Side Presbyterian church, 'Kansas City, 
and his final work at Smyrna and Laurel Hill churches, Laurinburg, 
North Carolina. 

Dr. Johnston was not only a gifted preacher and pastor, but also 
a man of scholarly attainments, especially along sociological lines. 
In 1895, he went to England to study conditions among the poor and 
in later years his investigations of slum life and his betterment work 
in Kansas City, received the thanks of the Governor of his State. In 
1914, he served as supply at the English Protestant church at Petro- 
grad, Bussia. He was intensely interested in Rural life, and was 
recognized as one who spoke with authority, being the lecturer on 
that subject at the University of Missouri during the Rural Life 
Conferences of 1918 and 1919. 

This rich store of knowledge along rural and economic lines made 
his work at Laurel Hill and Smyrna, all the more valuable and telling. 
He knew the theory and also how to put the theory in practice. Night 
schools were established for the illiterate whites and many learned 
to read, adults as well as children; lectures were given on thrift and 
kindred subjects, and last, but not least, the people themselves were 
through him brought under the influence of the church and many in- 
to its membership. His dream was to make the rural church the 
eommunity center. He built a tennis court, also a swimming place 
at the church grounds, and the ladies were organized into a Communi- 
ty Club. Though he was permitted tn labor in our midst only a few 
months, his dream was already becoming a reality. 

Dr. Johnston was held in high esteem by his brethren as evidenc- 
ed by the fact that he was twice elected Moderator of Kansas City 
Presbytery and once of the Synod of Missouri. 

The manner of his going showed the spirit of the man. Although 
he had been warned of the seriousness of his state of health, he work- 
ed with unflagging energy and zeal to the very last, preaching three 
or more times the week before he died. He was with us but a short 
time, but long enough to win the respect of his brethren for his piety 
and scholarship; their admiration for his untiring zeal; and the affec- 
tion of all his people for his wise leadership and pastoral care. His 



Synod of North Carolina 553 



work inspires in us a vision of the power that lies in the rural church 
to touch the whole community. He was a true man. a great-souled, 
far-visioned man, who loved God and lived his love in serving those 
for whom Christ died. 

GAEL B. GRAIG, Committee. 

Synod then took recess until. 3:00 o'clock p. m. 



SECOND DAY — Afternoon Session 

Tarboro, N. C, Wednesday, Oct. 19, 1921. 

Synod met at 3 :00 p. m., and resumed business. The un- 
finished business, viz : The report of the committee on Schools 
and Colleges was taken up and Synod heard an address by 
Eev. W. M. Hunter, Chairman. The report was adopted and 
is as follows : 

REPORT TO SYNOD 

Your committee on Schools and Colleges, begs to sumit the fol- 
lowing report: 

We have five institutions doing grammar and high school work, 
with a total enrollment of 347 students, taught by 34 teachers: 

Grove 7 teachers, 53 students; Elise 5 teachers, 67 students; Glade 
Valley 5 teachers, 55 students; Westminster 5 teachers, and 61 stu- 
dents. 

These four institutions are by no means crowded in their board- 
ing departments, as only about half of their student body board and 
live in school dormitories; which shows conclusively that these Insti- 
tutions could take a much larger number of boarders than they now 
have. 

Albemarle seems to be more fortunate, with her 12 teachers and 
111 students, and found it necessary to turn away 13. Her normal 
dormitory capacity is 65, yet she has 82 boarders. 

COLLEGES FOR WOMEN 
These institutions are crowded to over-flowing: 
Flora MacDonald 34 teachers, 297 students; Queens 20 teachers, 
251 students; Mitchell 12 teachers, 182 students; Peace 29 teachers. 



554 Minutes of the 



150 students; making a sum total of 160 teachers and officers and 1,- 
842 students. 

Two of these Institutions were compelled to refuse entrance to 
a few applicants, (Flora MacDonald 9, and Queens 10) though each 
rent outside apartments for students. 

COLLEGE FOR MEN 

Davidson has had 512 students on the campus this fall, being in- 
structed by her 25 professors and a number of assistants. This stu- 
dent body is much larger than should be for the very best results, 
but as Davidson has a representative at Synod, you will, hear from 
him. 

THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY 

Our Theological Seminary is now enjoying, perhaps the most 
prosperous period of her history, with 9 professors and 105 students; 
being so crowded that she finds it necessary to rent apartments off 
campus for certain students and their families. This makes a sum 
total of 1,842 students in our 11 institutions. 

Several of our institutions show an over-crowded condition; es- 
pecially Davidson. For example, 512 students, over against dormi- 
tory capacity for 367. The sum total of improvements made in the 
way of buildings and equipment, during the past year, amounts to 
about $40,000, which does not include the handsome new Sunday 
school building at our Seminary. There is a crying need from each 
school and college for either dormitories, laboratories, libraries, laun- 
dries or class-room equipment. 

FINANCES 

Our treasurer's report shows a sum total of receipts, $15,593,07 
(showing an increased amount over last year of $7,509,86) which has 
been disbursed to the various institutions as designated by the sev- 
eral Prebyteries. 

THE YEAR'S EXPENSE 

Charged off to each Institution according to amount each receiv- 
ed: 

One Typewjiter $ 90.00 

Amount Paid by request to Systematic Beneficence Com._ 150.00 

Printing, Clerical Work and Postage 246.22 



Total $486.22 

Respectfully submitted, 

W. M. HUNTER, Chairman. 



Synod op North Carolina 555 

N. B. Amounts sent direct to our lustitutious by the various churcli 
agencies, and not through our treasurer, $6,498.25, making a sum of 
$22,091.32 for the year. 

RESOLUTIONS 

EESOLVED, That Synod call attention to the summer Bible 
schools as conducted by some of our church sessions and suggest 
to others that they put this into practice this coming summer where- 
ever feasible. And that the committee of Schools and Colleges be 
authorized to investigate this method of instruction and report at 
next meeting. 

That our church sessions, schools and college faculties be re- 
quested to seek out promising young men and young women who 
have decided to enter the ministry or mission of the church, and lay 
upon their hearts and consciences the question of equipping them- 
selves as Christian teachers for a life's work. 

That the Synod give your committee the authority to investi- 
gate the possibility of offering a course of English Bible at our State 
educational institutions and report its findings to Synod. 

EESOLVED, That the Synod express most hearty thanks to our 
Treasurer, Mr. F. L. Jackson and his assistant in the oflSce of David- 
sou, Miss Hattie Thompson, for their great kindness and accuracy in 
keeping the treasurer's account of this work. 

SUPPLEMENTARY REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON SCHOOLS 
AND COLLEGES 

There have been referred to this committee reports from David- 
son College, Montreal Normal School, and the Mountain Ketreat As- 
sociation. 

DAVIDSON COLLEGE 

The Synod notes with great pleasure the very encouraging report 
coming from Davidson College, and would call attention to the in- 
creased patronage of the venerable institution from various denomi- 
nations. For example, we note in a student body of 512, we have 
eleven protestant denominations represented on the campus. Also 
that seventeen states have representatives there and three foreign 
countries and that more than one-half of the student body comes 
from a constituency not connected wdth the Presbyterian church 
within the bounds of our Synod. 

NEW PEOFESSOES 

We are glad to note that it has been made possible for the Board 
of Trustees to employ a number of new professors, and while we do 



556 MmuTES op the 



not consider the teaching force as large as we would like to see it, 
we feel quite sure that the work is being as well done at Davidson 
as in any one of our great institutions. 

While the church has done a great deal in recent years by way 
of financial support, yet when we consider the advanced cost of liv- 
ing, coupled with ihe almost doubling of the student body, and large 
number of additional professors, we can only say that Davidson must 
have more money to pay for larger equipment and more professors. 

While we feel very grateful to the great head of the church for 
supplying us with a splendid faculty and so large a number of stu- 
dents, which means larger opportunities, we at the same time would 
reaffirm Dr. Martin's most earnest appeal for larger financial sup- 
port from the church. 

MONTKEAT NOEMAL SCHOOL 

This institution is doing a great and a needed work for our 
church by way of offering education at a very moderate cost to many 
worthy and needy young women, and we would coimnend the work 
of this institution to the thoughtful and sincere consideration of our 
people. 

It is the judgment of your committee that it is indeed a wise 
plan for the Montreat plant, so well equipped for educational facili- 
ties, to be used during the Montreat vacation period, instead of al- 
lowing it to remain idle for nine months in the year. 

MOUNTAIN EETEEAT ASSOCIATION 

This report shows clearly that eight distinct conferences are 
carried on at this place, beginning June 21st and ending August 25th, 
and that in addition to the great amount of information that is dis- 
seminated among both our younger and older people in regard to 
the great work that our church is doing, both in home and foreign 
fields; perhaps the greatest and most important of all is the emphasis 
laid upon what is known as ' ' The Bible Study Hour ' ' presided over 
by such men as our Doctors Theron H. Eice, J. Gray McAllister, Mel- 
ton Clark, and E. C. Caldwell. 

It is with great joy that we note that the material equipment in 
this Association has been so handsomely improved by the addition 
of the large and commodious auditorium, which is nearing completion, 
and that Montreat looks forward to an era of usefulness for our 
church, and w^e would commend this institution to the liberality of 
our people in supplying the Association with further equipment for 
the auditorium, as well as other needed improvements.

Respectfully submitted, 

F. L. JACKSON, Treasurer. 

The report of the committee on Work in State Institu- 
tions was received and, pending its adoption, addresses were 
made by Rev. Messrs R. M. Williams and John Allen McLean. 

Report was adopted. 

Y''our committee on Christian Work in the State Educational In 
stitutions begs to report that it has made thorough investigation in 
regard to the work that is being done in all our institutions. At the 
last meeting of Synod your chairman was ordered to visit all the in- 
stitutions before the next meeting of Synod. "^ For the last week your 
chairman has made a tour, beginning with the North Carolina Col- 
lege for Women, at Greensboro, the State College for Men, formerly 
known as A. & M. College, at Raleigh, the University of North Car- 
olina, and the Training School for Women, at Greenville. Your chair- 
was more than delighted with the work that is being done in all 
these institutions and the welcome these institutions accorded him as 
your representative. He spoke to a large number of the student body 
of each of these institutions, indicating the interest that church has 
in them and presenting the claims that Christ and the Church have 



Synod of North Carolina 561 



upon their lives^ and urging them to put first things first. The 
heads of these institutions expressed to your representative, asking 
him to convey to Synod their deep appreciation of the interest shown 
by the Synod. 

At the North Carolina College for Women they have 1,000 stu- 
dents enrolled, and practically all the students belong to some of the 
Evangelical churches. They have a thoroughly equipped Y. W. C. 
A. secretary who is giving all her time in directing the Christian ac- 
tivities of the young women. In Greensboro all the churches show a 
deep interest in the student body and have great numbers of them 
in their Sunday schools and preaching services. Keligious services 
are held in the chapel of the college three times a week, conducted 
either by some member of the faculty or other religious leader. The 
Vesper service is held every Sunday evening and daily Evening Watch 
is also held. They have twenty-five Bible and Mission Study Classes 
for this year, taught by the students and members of the faculty. 
In addition to the religious work in the institution they co-operate 
with the social and charitable agencies of the City in any definite 
work that is offered. There is an active Volunteer Band composed 
of twelve young women definitely prepared to take up foreign mis- 
sion work. Besides a large budget to cover their local expenses, they 
make a gift of $500.00 to foreign Y. W. C. A. work. 

At the Eastern Carolina Training School, in Greenville, they have 
325 students, all of them belonging to the churches with the excep- 
tion of 18. Your representative was delighted with the spirit of this 
institution. All the members of the faculty are very earnest in their 
Christian activities and take a very deep interest in the spiritual wel- 
fare of the student body. The young women attend Sunday school 
and church services in the City, and the churches show a very deep 
interest in doing what they can for their spiritual development. The 
Y. W: C. A. is active, holding two meetings a week, every Friday and 
Sunday evening. They have fourteen Bible and Mission Study Class- 
es which are well attended. They gave $225.00 for mission work dur- 
ing the last year and raised $700.00 for their own expenses. They 
are planning for two meetings during this year, one an evangelistic 
service and one a course of lectures on Christian fundamentals. 

At the State College at Raleigh they have 1,000 students. They 
hold a daily chapel service and have a very active Y. M. C. A. or- 
ganization, with a splendid man as secretary of the "Y. " They have 
32 Bible Classes with 340 men enrolled as earnest seekers for truth. 
They have recently had Dr. Allen K. Foster to give a series of lec- 
tures to the students. Dr. Foster being a member of the Educational 



562 Minutes of the 



Board of the Northern Baptist church. His addresses greatly enrich- 
ed the Christian life of both faculty and students. They are plan- 
ning to have the strongest men they can get in the country to speak 
to them during the year on Christian fundamentals, and point out the 
claims of Christ upon their lives. 

Your representative spent Sunday at the University and preach- 
ed at the Presbyterian church on Sunday to a large con"gregation com- 
posed of University students, members of the faculty and the people 
of the village. The great Christian spirit manifested in the church 
and in the village impressed your representative very deeply. We 
recognize Chapel Hill as one of the most strategic points of power 
and influence in North Carolina, there being 1,600 students. The 
president and faculty of the University are feeling very deeply the 
the great responsibility resting upon them in directing these young 
lives. Christian forces trere are grappling with their task. They 
have the best man that they can find as Y. M. C. A. secretary and he 
is doing a splendid work in directing the Christian activities of the 
Institution. They have a large number of Bible Classes taught by 
the strongest men that they can get, and w^e are not pessimistic in 
regard to the outlook of the result of their efforts. Our beloved broth- 
er, W. D. Moss, the pastor of the Chapel Hill church is doing an un- 
paralled work among the 1,600 students there. Everybody at Chapel 
Hill admires him, loves him and believes in him with all their hearts, 
and his influence is being felt in the transformation of the lives of 
the young men. He preaches to large congregations every Sunday, 
teaches a great number of Bible Classes, and holds conferences with 
the students nearly every day, with hundreds of interviews in re- 
gard to the problems that confront them. His labor among the stu- 
dents is quite an asset to the Presbyterian church, and we as a Synod 
should praise God and thank Him for his life and consecration among 
them. His church has asked the Home Mission Committee of the 
Synod that they reduce their gift of $1750.00 a year on his salary 
to $1500.00. This was a voluntary act on their part, showing a wil- 
lingness as they become stronger to bear their own burdens. 

Your representative, after this thorough investigation, feels pro- 
foundly grateful for the work that is being done in our State Insti- 
tutions, composed of 4,000 of the choicest young men and women of 
our Commonweath. 

Respectfully submitted. 

E. MUEPHY WILLIAMS, Chairman. 



Synod of North Carolina 563 

The report of the committee on Systematic Beneficence 
was received and adopted as follows : 

The committee on Stewardship submits the following amended 
report : 

Your committee desires to call attention of the Presbyteries an 1 
churches to the fact that the General Assembly's Training school is 
an Assembly 's cause, and that all contributions made to the training 
school should be taken from the percentage given to the Assembly's 
causes. The Synod also urges Presbyteries and churches to contrib- 
ute to the training school the full percentage recommended by the 
Assembly and to send these contributions direct to Mr. George "W. 
Call, treasurer of the Training School, Union Bank, Richmond, Va. 

The total contributions of the past year reach the splendid 
amount of $942,777.00. 

In explanation of your committee's failure to secure a full-time 
Synodical manager as instructed last year, we beg to report that no 
adequate financial means were available, and do now ask Synod for 
further instruction in regard to this matter. 

The committee recommends: 

1. That the Synod accept the apportionment of $743,541 as its 
quota for Benevolences in the Presbyterian Progressive Program sent 
down by the Assembly. 

2. That this amount be apportioned to the several Presbyteries 
on the basis of the Spillman Plan as follows: 

Albemarle $ 70,088.00 

Fayetteville 139,731.00 

Mecklenburg 131,885.00 

Orange 158,071.00 

Wilmington 100,998.00 

3. That the 40 per cent of $743,412 apportioned to Synods and 
Pl^esbyterial causes be pro rated to Synodical causes as follows: 

Orphan's Home 7 1-2 per cent 

Synod's Home Missions 10 Per ^ent 

And that the remaining 22 1-2 per cent be divided as each Pres- 
bytery deems wise. 

4. That the overture of Wilmington Presbytery relative to the 
placement of e?^tra gifts be adopted and the General Assembly so 
Overtured 



564 Minutes of the 



The Presbytery of Wllniingtou respoctfully overtures the Synod 
of North Carolina to meet in Tarboro, North Carolina, October 18. 
1921, to overture the General Assembly to direct that all extra gifts 
which do not go directly to the benevolent causes of the Assembly, 
the Synod or the Presbytery, be put in the Miscellaneous Contribution 
column. 

By order of Wilmington Presbytery in session in Clarkton, Octo- 
ber 5, 1921. 

W. P. M. CUREIE, Stated Clerk. 

5. Tliat in line with the General Assembly's recommendation, 
we recommend that the name of this committee be changed to the 
Synod 's Stewardship Committee. 

EDWARD N. CALDWELL, Chmii. pr tem. 

The following is the added report of the Stewardship Committee: 

Your committee on Stewardship, together with the special com- 
mittee to which was referred the matter of securing a Synodical 
manager, would recommend: 

1. That such an officer be employed, provided only, that in the 
judgment of the committee after careful investigation a suitable 
man shall have been found, and further provided that Synod is suffi- 
ciently in earnest about this matter to provide necessary funds, and 
that the committee be limited to the amount of $12,000.00. 

2. We further recommend that these funds be provided in the 
following plan; recommended by the General Assembly Stewardship 
Committee, to have the causes which are benefitted by the work of 
the Synodical manager to return an agreed per cent of their receipts. 

3. We further recommend a continuation of this present com- 
mittee until the next meeting of Synod. 

EDWARD N. CALDWELL, Chmn. pro tem. 

Synod heard an address by Mr. J. B. Spillnian. of Colum- 
bia, South Carolina, on the work of the Assembly's Steward- 
ship Committee. Synod also heard an address by Rev. "W. L.

SECOND DAY— Evening Session 

Tarboro, N. C, Wednesday, Oct. 19, 1921. 

Synod met at 8 :00 p. m., and engaged in a popular meet- 
ing in the interests of Synodical Home Missions. 

After devotional exercises conducted by Superintendent 
Rev. A. W. Crawford, the annual report of the Committee 
of Home Missions was submitted, and, pending its adoption, 
addresses were made by Dr. J. P. McCallie of Chattanooga, 
and Rev. A. S. Johnson, D. D. ; after which the report, with 
its recommendations were adopted, and is as follows: 

REPORT OF THE HOME MISSION COMMITTEE 

Your committee has tried to carry forward intensely and vigor- 
ously the greatly enlarged work authorized and inaugurated by the 
action of the Ealeigh Synod of 1919. 

The Presbyteries have co-operated fully in this movement. They 
have enlarged their own work greatly and we have encouraged them 
to call on us freely. Yet in this advance we believe they have acted 
with wisdom and care, their requests have been reasonable, and so 
far in this new movement no requests made by them for appropria- 
tions from us have been declined. 

This year this work of enlargement has gone steadily and sane- 
ly forward. God's blessing has rested richly on this enlarged effort 
and the reports of the workers show a large increase in the ingather- 
ing of spujs over anything known in the previous history of the work. 



566 Minutes of the 



With this enlargement our financial obligations ha,ve steadily in- 
creased also and our expenditures for the General Work for the year 
now closed have been $8,000.00 more than for last year, which was 
increase of $15,000.00 over the year before that. 

This increase of expenditures was sustained liy tlie steady in- 
crease of the contributions of the churches from Synod up t<^ mid- 
summer, when owing to the general financial depression there was 
such a falling off as seemingly almost to threaten the work with col- 
lapse. In response to our earnest call and a clear statement of the 
facts to the congregations thej' have responded nobly in the last three 
weeks and brought the contributions in the end to $5,763.00 over the 
contributions for last year and the year has closed with the work 
paid for. To do this, however, we had to use practically all of the 
$4,500.00 working balance on hand at the beginning of the year, and 
we enter upon a new year dependent on the immediate and steady 
contributions of the churches. 

Especially would we ask the Synod to urge those congregations 
which have not yet sent in their proi^ortionate share of the expense 
of the work since the spring Presbyteries, as is the case with many, 
including some of the largest and strongest churches, to come to our 
aid now, that the work may go forward. 

We present the following detailed statements: 

64 supported wholly or in part by the Synod's Com. supplied 
110 weak churches and 101 other mission points. They report 
7,193 sermons preached. 
3,724 professions of faith. 

1,898 additions to the Presbyterinn church on profession. 
454 additions by letter. 
27 Sunday schools organized. 

4 churches organized and 4 church buildings completed. 
17 churches and manses under construction have been aided & 
$50,342.92 expended in the whole work as compared with $37,410.15 
last year. 

Fine increase in every department. Of special note the fact 
that there were 1898 additions on profession as compared with 1202 
last year, the largest previous number in the history of the Synod's 
work, this year's additions being more than half the total number 
reported in the Assembly's minutes for the whole Synod. 

Of the 64 engaged in the work, 56 were ordained ministers, and 
8 Sunday school workers, six of them ti'flii^<^<l women engaged espe- 
cially in mill villages. 



Synod of North Carolina 567 

Included ill the whole is the fine work of our four General Evan- 
gelists, Rev. William Black, Rev. O. G. Jones, D. D., Rev. Conner 
Brown, and Rev. Leonard Gill, who held 85 series of evangelistic ser- 
vices in whicli* they reported 2894 professions of faith and 1311 addi- 
tions to the Presbyterian church. 

Since the last meeting of Synod, Rev. William Black, General 
Evangelist of the Synod, reports as follows: 

Conducted 21 series of meetings, and preached at 5 other places 
in the Synod; preached 348 times; in these meetings there were 1259 
professions; 482 additions to the Presbyterian church by profession; 
many additions by letter, 251 promised to establish Family Worhip 
and 3460 persons to read the Bible and pray daily; organized 5 Sun- 
day Schools and as a result of these meetings, 2 churches were or- 
ganized, raised $2033.33 for Synod's Home Mission Work and more 
than $1547.94 for Congregational purposes, ordained and installed 3 
elders and 2 deacons and conducted a large number of prayer and 
other religious services not included in the above. 

In several of these meetings, large numbers of colored people 
were present, and not a few of them made profession and gave other 
evidence of Ijeing interested; also preached to many Indians at their 
State School in Pembroke. Planned to hold a Bible Institute of sev- 
eral days for the preachers of the colored churches and others in 
Charlotte and vicinity, and while this had to be postponed on account 
of the absence from the City of several of their most prominent 
preachers, it is to be held later. 

Besides the above, this Evangelist conducted three series of meet- 
ings in the States of Georgia, South Carolina and Tennessee, one each 
in these States, and in these meetings there were 173 professions and 
52 additions to the Presbyterian church. During his absence from 
this Synod, this Evangelist received no salary from your committee. 

Rev. 0. G. Jones, D. D., General Evangelist of the Synod pre- 
sents the brief but concise report: 

26 meeting held. 
405 sermons and addresses. 
416 professions of faith. 
1370 reeonsecrations. 
306 united with the Presbyterian church on profession. 
$1108 contributed to Synodical Home Missions in the meetings held. 
$2515 raised for other causes. 

After seven years of labor as General Evangelist of the Synod, 
Dr. Jones has accepted the call of the Assembly's Committee to la- 



568 Minutes of the 



bor for them as Regional Evangelist and will not be available for re- 
election by the Synod. 

In these seven years over 1300 souls have been added to our 
churches through his labors, his work has grown in fruitfulness and 
the last year has been the most fruitful of any. Our interest goes 
with him and our prayers ascend to God for a still larger fruitful- 
ness in his new work. 

The Superintendent compiles the results of the labors of the Rev. 
Conner Brown, as follows: 

19 meetings held. 
365 sermons preached. 
476 professions. 

206 additions to the Presbyterian church on profession. 
2 Sunday Schools organized. 
$1174 contributed for Synodical Home Missions in the meetings held. 

Mr. Brown attaches justly large importance to the work among 
professing Christians and reports over 4000 rededications of lives to 
righteousness and God 's service. 

Por the first half of the Synod's year, Rev. Leonard Gill was 
Superintendent of Mecklenburg Presbytery and gave only half time 
to the work of General Evangelist of the Synod. For the last six 
months he has given full time to the Synod's work. The Superin- 
tendent compiles the following summary of his reports: 

19 meetings held. 
319 sermons preached. 
741 profesious of faith. 

315 additions to the Presbyterian church upon profession. 
$1500 contributed for Synodical Home Missions in the meetings held. 

The labors of all our General Evangelists have been greatly 
blessed and warrant pushing with vigor our campaign of Evang- 
elism throughout the whole Synod. 

The General Evangelists have received total contributions in the 
meetings held $5866.00, and the 50 men engaged in the local fields of 
the Presbyteries report contributions of $815.00 from the weak church- 
es and mission stations supplied, a total of $6681.00, or the work has 
been this far self-sustaining.

the Home Mission work in the bounds of the Synod has been com- 
piled with much care; Synodical Home Missions from our own re- 
ports and Presbyterial Home Missions from carefully prepared re- 
ports from the superintendents or Home Mission chairmen of the 
several Presbyteries. To this, is added, from the Minutes of the last 
Assembly, the amount reported expended for Congregational Home 
Missions for the year:

572 Minutes of the 



EECOMMENDATIONS 

1. We affirm and emphasize the action of last year in setting 
$75,000.00 as the amount needed annually for this work as now con- 
stituted, and for its orderly development. 

2. "We affirm and emphasize the action of last year in setting 
10 percent as the proper percentage for thij work in the gifts of the 
churches, and in doing so, urge upon all our churches the necessity 
of giving this work its full and rightful place, as thus indicated, in 
their yearly budget, if we are in any way to overtake the destitution 
in our own State and carry out the enlarged movement so well be- 
gun and so evidently sealed with the blessing of God. 

3. We call upon our churches to make this a whole church move- 
ment and urge the Women's Auxiliaries, the Sunday Schools, and the 
Young People 's Societies to set apart the one-tenth of all their benev- 
olent contributions for this work, that all together we may accomp- 
lish task. 

4. That January and July be designated as Home Mission 
months as heretofore, and where there are churches or Sunday schools 
which do not set apart one-tenth of all their benevolent contribu- 
tions for this work, that they be called upon to give at least one well 
announced collection in each of these months to the greatly enlarged 
work now being done by the Home Mission Committee of the Synod 
in its bounds. 

5. That the Synod elect the following elders to serve on the 
Home Mission Committee for the ensuing year: 

J. E. Young, Ealeigh, Albemarle Presbytery. 

Z. V. Turlington, Mooresville, Concord Presbytery. 

A. E. McEachern, St. Pauls, Fayetteville Presbytery. 

J. H. Kennedy, Gastonia, King's Mountain Presbytery. 

W. H. Belk, Charlotte, Mecklenburg Presbytery, 

E. P. Wharton, Greensboro, Orange Presbytery. 

Col. Walker Taylor, Wilmington, Wilmington Presbytery.

ner Brown, and Eev. Leonard Gill be elected General Evangelists of 
Synod and that Eev. A. W. Crawford be elected Superintendent and 
Treasurer for the ensuing year. 

Eev. D. D. Slaughter, of the M. E. Church, South, was

er.

576 Mestutes of the 



The committee on Woman's Work presented the follow- 
ing report which was adopted : 

REPORT OF THE PERMANENT COMMITTEE ON WOMAN'S 

WORK. 

During the past year the Woman 's Work of the Synod has been 
marked by splendid progress. The Synodical reports two hundred 
and seventy-four societies, with a membership of 10,403. The report 
made at the last meeting of the Synodical, held in the Gastonia First 
Church, October 5 and 6, showed a gain in membership during the 
past year of 1,334, being just a fraction less than 13 per cent. The 
total gifts reported for the year were $190,744. This was a gain of 
$57,214 over the previous year, not quite 30 per cent, or nearly two 
and one-half times the advance in membership. The gifts per capi- 
ta for the year were $18.00. This shows very gratifying progress. 

The work of the Synodical is advancing in accordance with a 
systematic program that is comprehensive in its scope. The endeavor 
is made to include all the interests of the church and to cover the 
field of Christian life and service. Stress is laid on such vital mat- 
ters as Bible study, prayer and mission study. That this is thorough- 
going work is indicated by the following figures: Number of Bible 
Study classes, 133; number of prayer circles, 186; number of Foreign 
Mission Study Classes, 209; Home Mission Study Classes, 199. Much 
interest has also been manifested in advancing organized work among 
young people in the Presbyterials composing the Synodical. 

It seems now that practically all of the organized work among 
the women of the Synod has been absorbed by the Synodical and the 
work of extension is being vigorously pushed. Of all the women's 
societies reported in the Synod, there are only twenty-four not affil- 
iated with the Synodical, and the total of gifts apart from those re- 
ported by the Synodical is only $4,699. At the same time a large 
extension work yet remains for the Synodical. Of the 501 churches 
in this Synod two hundred and twenty-seven report no women's so- 
cieties. These are probably for the most part small and struggling 
churches located in Home Mission territory, and while large in num- 
ber represent a comparatively small constituency. However, they 
constitute a most fruitful field of constructive service and make an 
inviting and powerful appeal to the zeal and devotion of the Synodi- 
cal. 

A very fine piece of work that is being done by the Synodical i 
the new Woman's Building at Barium Springs Orphans' Home. This 
building is already under construction and when completed will house 



Synod of North Carolina 577 

sixty or more girls. The plan of the building is on exhibition here 
and we hope that every member of the Synod will examine it. The 
greater part of the money is already in hand and the women of th( 
Synodical plan to present this building to the Synod, fully furnished 
and ready for occupancy. 

Submitted with this report is the annual report of the Synodical 
in detail and a list of the officers and their addresses:

The correct list of Synodical Officers as installoil at meeting in 
Gastonia, North Carolina. Two new officers were created and filled: 
Young People 's Secretary of Colleges and Conferences, and Historian. 

The Young People 's work had grown too large for one person, 
hence the new Secretary. 

The following recommendations are offered: 

1. The Synod hereby records its hearty commendation of the 
splendid work that is being done by the women, its appreciation of 
the substantial and enduring service that is being rendered by the 
Synodical and extends its congratulations on the prosperity and suc- 
cess that have marked the work during the past year. 

2. The Synod expresses its warm appreciation of the beneficence 
of the Synodical in providing funds for the new building for girls 
at Barium Springs Orphans' Home. This handsome structure will 
stand as a lasting and eloquent monument to the love and devotion 
of the women of this Synod, and will constitute a most important fac- 
tor in carrying forward the Synod's progressive program in behalf 
of the fatherless. 

3. The Synod earnestly recommends to all the chi7rches the in- 
troduction of the Auxiliary Circle plan as the wisest and most effec- 
tive method of promoting and developing the work of the women. 
The Synod also recommends that the Presbyteries encourage and pro- 
mote the work of their various Presbyterials. 

Respectfully submitted by the committee. 

J. H. HENDERLITE, Chairman. 

Mr. C. D. Whitelv was substituted for Mr. G. L. AVhitely 
on the Committee to examine the IMinutes of Wilming'ton 
Presbytery.

JNO. A. McMURRAY. Chairman, 

A partial report of the Home IMission Committee was 
read and adopted as follows : 

PARTIAL REPORT OF HOME MISSION COMMITTEE 

That the Synod has received with interest the communication 
from Miss Mebane in regard to work among prisoners and would 
call again upon our ministers and Christian workers to give special 
attention to the prisoners in their reach. 

The committee on the ]\Iinutes of the General Assembly 
made report, and, pending its consideration, it went over as 
unfinished business, and the order of the day was taken up. 

The Permanent Committee on tlie Orphans' Home made 
report, and, pending its adoption, addresses were heard from 
Rev. Messrs. R. A. Lapsley, Jr., R. M. Williams, H. G. Jlill, 
D. D., H. M. Parker, and others. 

The report was adopted as a whole and is as follows : 

RHPORT OF THE PERMANENT COMMITTEE ON THE 
ORPHANS' HOME 

Your committee would respectfully acknowledge the honor con- 
ferred on the Orphans' Home in the action of the last Sjnod in pro- 
moting its Committee on the report of the Regents from, the class 
of standing to that of a Permanent Committee. 

Into our hands, as such, the Synod has placed the report of the 
Regents. 

Since their report is read in connection with our report, we be- 



Synod op North Carolina 581 

lieve it unnecessary to recite any of their accomplishments or wise 
recommendations, but we do rejoice in the facts therein presented. 

We possibly do not realize, as fully as we should, the great re- 
sponsibility and privilege our Lord, the Gread Head of the Church, 
has placed in our hands in the care and training of the orphan. 

We do acknowledge, with the gratitude of our hearts, the won- 
derful power of His presence, the wisdom and success He has given 
to those who are the Synod's representatives in the management and 
conduct of the work at Barium Springs, His loving care and protec- 
tion of the children gathered there and His giving the Home such a 
warm place in the hearts of our people. 

This declaration we would make by a rising vote and a prayer 
of His continued presence, that we fail not in our mission in His 
name. 

We would recommend: 

1. That since a change was made in the membership of the 
Board of Eegents at the last meeting of the Synod, we extend our 
loving thanks and appreciation to those who have served so long, so 
faithfully and with such great success. 

2. That Rev. W. T. Walker having tendered his resignation as 
Superintendent during the year, after ten years of devoted and con- 
secrated service, be assured of our great apprciation and prayer for 
his success in his new field of labor. 

3. That we appreciate the faithful efforts of the new Board of 
Regents in taking hold of the problems given them and the appar- 
ent success with which they have gone forward. 

4. That we approve the plans and program of the Board and 
pledge our support to its completion according to their recommenda- 
tions 1 — 6. 

Respectfully submitted, 

E. M. CRAIG, Chairman. 

The Synod now took recess until 3:00 o'clock p. m., and 
immediately repaired to the "William and Mary Memorial 
Chapel," at Lea:gets, for a brief service of song and addresses 
touching the history of the church. The program was fully 
carried out, and a bountiful luncheon and "barbecue" dinner 
was served and enjoyed. — S. C.

THIRD DAY— Afternoon Session 

Tarboro, N. C, Thursday, October 20, 1921. 
Synod met at 3 :00 p. m., and resumed business. 

The report of the Treasurer of the Board of Trustees of 
the Synod was received and adopted as follows : 

REPORT OF TREASURER OF TRUSTEES 

To the Synod of the Presbyterian Church, N. C: 

I herewith make to your honorable body my report as Treasurer: 

Reed. Apr. 27, from J. C. Burroughs Estate $13,907.21

Respectfully submitted, 

R. A. DUNN. 
Treasurer Trustees of Synod of N. C. 

The report of the Standing Committee on Union Tlieo- 
logical Seminary was received and adopted and is as follows : 

REPORT OF STANDING COMMITTEE ON UNION 
THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY 

Your committee on Union Theological Seminary would report 
that we have carefully read the Annual Report of the Board of Di- 
rectors of the Seminary, which reveals many evidences of the continu- 
ed favor and blessing of God upon this institution. The past year 
has been one of the most successful in the history of the Seminary, 
twenty graduates being sent forth last May. As the Annual Report 
will be published in the appendix to the Minutes of Synod, we shall 
not rehearse here the facts therein contained. 

We are glad to report that Seminary has had its best opening 
this fall, the enrollment of under-graduate students for the present 
year being one hundred and five, fifty of whom are new men. This 
is by far the largest Junior class ever enrolled. 

The new model Sunday school building, Schauffer Hall, is now 
completed and is being used. This Building will add much to the 
thoroughness and efficiency of the Department of Religious Educa- 
tion. Our Seminary is now well equipped and strongly manned to 
do the important work the church has committed to her. 

The financial statement for last year shows that the total an- 
nual expenditures arc slightly in excess of the total annual income 



Synod of North Carolina 



583 



from all sources. This fact emphasizes the necessity for au increase 
in the annual support fund. We recommend, therefore, that all our 
churches be requested to include the Seminary in their annual budget. 
We recommend that the Synod express its appreciation of the 
encouraging report of the work of the Seminary brought to this meet^ 
ing of Svnod by Dr. W. L. Lingle, and that we assure the faculty of 
an.l earnest prayers in their great and important work of training our 
candidates for the ministry for their future work. 

Eespectfully submitted, 

C. E. HODGIN, Chairman. 

The Board of Trustees of the North Carolina Religious 
Worker's Home made the following report which was adopt- 
ed: 

KEPORT OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF THE NORTH CAR- 
OLINA HOME FOR RELIGIOUS WORKERS, MONTREAT, N. C. 

The Board of Trustees of the above named institution would 
respectfully report that several meetings of the Board have been held 
during the vear, and it has endeavored to make the best use possible 
of the Hoine, and has kept the same open during the several confer- 
ences which were held during the summer, and 112 were entertained 
there during the season, most of whom were of the class made eligi- 
ble by the action of the Synod. 

The Home was managed during the Conference season most effi- 
ciently by Mrs. N. L. Barnes of Davidson, N. C, and board and lodg- 
ing, were furnished at the exceedingly low rate of $8.50 per week, 
and nothing but praise was heard for the accommodations furnished. 
It is the regret of your Board that our accommodations are so 
limited, as it could have been filled, if we had a place three times the 
size of the present building. 

Your Board did not undertake to canvass for the necessary funds 
to enlarge and properly equip our Home, believing that on account 
of the very great stringency in money matters, this time is inop- 
portune, but intends to prosecute the matter and enlarge the build- 
ing so that all who would like to come, can be accommodated. 

Your Board is fully convinced that there is a great field of use- 
fulness for the Home, as it would furnish to the tired, overworked, 
minister and others, a fine place for rest and at the same time give 
opportunity to hear just the sort of addresses, music and other con- 



584 Minutes of the 



fereiices on religious subjects that is needed to encourage and equip 
bodily, mentally and spiritually for the work back home. 

Your Board believes, too, that Montreat is only in the beginning 
of its usefulness in this direction, and so an institution like ours 
will be able to do more and more good as the years go by. 

Your Board wishes to express its appreciation and return sin- 
cere thanks to Mr. and Mrs. N. A. Currie of Clarkton, N. C, for a 
Montreat lot, graciously donated by them. 

The Home is free from debt, but money will be needed to make 
some repairs before next season, unless a new building is constructed. 

The Treasurer's report is hereto attached and shows the receipts 
and expenditures, for the last year. 

The term of office of Eev. "William Black, Rev. W. A. Murray, 
Eev. Donald Mclver, Mr. J. A. Brady and Mr. C. D. Bradham, Trus- 
tees, expires this year and Messrs. Chas. Norfleet, O. L. Clark and C. 
E. Neisler have resigned, and it is recommend: 

First, That Eev. William Black, Eev. W. A. Murray, and Mr. C. 

D. Bradham succeed themselves, and that Professor J. M. Douglas 
succeed Mr. J. A. Brady, resigned; Eev. C. E. Hodgin succeed Eev. 
Donald Mclver, removed from the bounds of Synod; that Mr. Walter 
P. Sprunt success Mr. 0. L. Clark, resigned; Mr. E. P. Wharton suc- 
ceed Mr. Chas. Norfleet,resigned; and Mr. Joseph Johnston succeed 
Mr. C. E. Neisler, resigned, so that the Board will be constituted as 
follows:

Murray, Eev. C. E. Hodgin, Mr. J. M. Douglas, Mr. C. D. Bradham.

Walter P. Sprunt, Eev. C. M. Eichards, D. D., Mr. J. W. McLauchlin. 

Second, That this cause be commended to the liberality of our 
people, that the necessary accommodations may be provided for all 
who would like to attend, and that contributions be sent to our Treas- 
urer, Mr. W. H. Belk, Charlotte, N. C. , 

Third, That Pastors, Sessions and Sunday schools call the at- 
tention of their members, officers, Sunday school teachers. Women's 
Auxiliaries and Young People's Societies and others, to the several 
conferences to be held at different times during the year, and the 



Synod of North Carolina 585 

most excellent accommodatious of the home, aind that they use their 
best endeavors to have representatives attend the several different 
conferences from the first to the last of the season, and so use the 
Home for, the greatest number of persons, and not all wait to attend 
any one conference.

586 Minutes of the 



REPOET or COMMITTEE OF YOUNG PEOPLE'S WORK 

The past year has been one of progress. The number of socie- 
ties has increased from 242 to 255, the membership from 6,722 to 7,- 
551. Contributions to all causes amounted to $12,331. Reports to 
the Woman's Synodical Auxiliary indicate that over 1200 young peo- 
ple have given special study in classes to Home and Foreign Missions, 
which was doubtless due to the impetus received at the Young Peo- 
ple's Conferences. 

The Board of Directors of the Presbyterian Young People's 
League had its annual meeting in Charlotte, December 30, and made 
plans to hold the Young People 's Conference. This Conference was 
conducted at Peace Institute, May 31 to June 7. The school author- 
ities made every effort to make the gathering a success, and the en- 
tertainment was all that could be desired. The program was ex- 
cellent, everything was harmonious, great enthusiasm prevailed, and 
a spiritual atmosphere hovered over all. The fact that 30 young 
persons in private conference, expressed a purpose to devote their 
lives to definite religious service shows the practical value of the 
meeting. 

The League met each day to exchange ideas and hear mutual 
reports of their work in the local societies. Their spirit of unity was 
manifest, and they declared their purpose to strive for the objectives 
of their own denomination. The conference had its own officers and 
working committees from the young people themselves, and these 
carried out a finely arranged program, which was inspirational, edu- 
cational, and helped to amalgamate the Synodical body of young 
people, willing to carry out the progressive program of our Church. 
The conference adopted a manual which was approved by the exe- 
cutive committee of the Board of Directors of the Presbyterian Young 
People's League, and the League asks that this manual- be approved 
by Synod. The following is a resume of the manual: 

The League is controlled by Synod through a board of directors. 

The annual conference shall be conducted by this board. 

The members of this League shall be young people, between 15 
and 25 years of age^ who are members of churches in the Synod. 

The League makes no effort to establish local young people's 
societies, but all young people in the churches, Sunday schools, and 
societies are eligible to membership in the League. 

j Echo meetings of the conferences should be conducted in every 
Presbytery. 



Synod op North Carolina 587 



The finances of the League shall be derived from funds contrib- 
uted by the Synod and the Woman's Auxiliary, and a fee of five 
cents from each member. 

The League adopts the denominational objectives of all kinds, 
and encourages all local societies to place the objectives in their 
budget. 

It is a pleasure to report that 15 echo meetings followed the 
conference at Peace Institute in various sections of the Synod, at 
which over 2,000 young people gathered. Keports were heard of 
those who had attended the meetings at Ealeigh, Wilmington, Mon- 
treat, and New York^ thus bringing the inspiration to a larger num- 
ber than could get to these meetings. 

The Presbyterian Young People's League has adopted two spe- 
cial funds: The Barium College Fund, to which each local society is 
asked to contribute $1.50, is appropriated to the support of an in- 
mate of the Synodical orphanage at one of our schools. Miss Nealy 
Ford is the present recipient, and she is pursuing her studies at the 
Assembly's Training School. $107 were given to this cause last year. 
The other fund is called the Sabbath School Missionary Fund, and 
each society is asked for $2.00, to be used for the support of a man 
in our State in Sunday School Extension. 

A reward is offered, to stimulate the local societies, called the 
Eamsay Loving Cup to be awarded to the society making the best 
record at the next conference. 

The executive secretary, after the conference, sent lists of dele- 
gates to our Synodical schools to aid in Christian education. 

As to finances, during the year, the secretary handled a total 
sum of $2321.41, of which the Synod gave $300, the Woman's Aux- 
iliary $200, delegates fees amounted to $1333, and the rest came 
from various sources, as balance on hand from last year of $228.22, 
the sale of books, the conference store, etc. Total amount disbursed 
$1954.97, leaving a balance on hand of $366.44. 

EECOMJVIENDATIONS 

1. The Synod expresses its gratification at the zeal of the young 
people and assures them of our sympathy and prayers. 

2. The Synod appoint a committee of one from each Presbytery 
to examine the proposed manual, and report to the next Synod. 

3. The Synod recommends the young people's work to the lib- 
erality of the churches.

Synod of North Carolina 591 

The report of the committee on Sabbath School Work was 
received and adopted as follows: 

Your Committee reports that the Sunday Schools of Synod, in 
most instances, are in a flourishing conditisn. The enrollment of a 
great number of the schools shows a great increase over last year. 
It is with pleasure that we report that 1675 were received into the 
church from the Sunday Schools during the year. It is also note- 
worthy that a great number of the schools have contributed liberally 
to the different benevolent causes of the church. There are many 
evidences of greater interest in the Sunday school work of Synod. 

W. E. HILL, Chairman. 

Kev. R. A. Lapsley introduced tlie following resolution 
regarding the election of a Synodieal Superintendent of Or- 
phanage work, which was adopted, and is as follows : 

The members of the Board of Eegents, present at this meeting 
of the Synod, respectfully ask the Synod to call as Synodieal Super- 
intendent of Orphanage work Eev. E. Murphy Williams, of Greens- 
boro, and to authorize his election. 

The unfinished business report of thic committee on the 
Minutes of the General Assembly was taken up and adopted : 

The Synod's Committee on the Minutes of the General Assembly 
reports as follows: 

In response to the recommendation of the General Assembly's 
Stewardship Committee, that the fall meetings of Synod and Pres- 
byteries be so arranged that Synod meets before the fall meeting of 
Presbyteries, we recommend that this change be not made. 

Second, In view of the fact that the $5000.00 appropriated by the 
General Assembly of 1921 to the Federal Council is not a part of the 
necessary contingent expense of the General Assembly. 

THEEEFOEE, the Synod of North Carolina, in session at Tar- 
boro, N. C, October 20th, 1921, does respectfully overture the Gen- 
eral Assembly to meet in Charleston, West Virginia, in May, 1922,

THIRD DAY— Evening Session 

Thursday, October 20, 1921. 

Synod met at 8:00 p. m., and resumed business. 
The Permanent Committee on the Bible Cause made the 
following report wliich was adopted : 

REPORT OF PERMANENT COMMITTEE ON BIBLE CAUSE 

Your Committee on Bible Cause would call your attention to the 
very great importance of the American Bible Society as the source 
of supply of the printed Bible, the book above all others fundamen- 
tal to the life and growth of the Church. Through its eleven for- 
eign agencies, on five continents and the Islands of the seven seas 
foreign agencies on five continents and the Islands of seven seas, 
it is distributing to mankind the printed Scriptures in over one hun- 
dred and fifty languages and dialects. In the 104 years of the So- 



594 Minutes of the 



ciety's existence the total issue has been 137,903,939 volumes. When 
we remember that in our foreign missionary work in Brazil, China, 
Japan, Cuba, Korea, and Mexico, we are almost entirely dependent 
upon this society for our Bible supply, and that otherwise vernacular 
Bibles could be obtained only at enormous expense by translation 
and printing by us, we realize how important this cause is to our 
work in foreign countries. 

There has been a continued and increasing demand for the Bible 
throughout the whole world arising from a distribution of Bibles and 
Testaments by the American Bible Society to our soldiers during the 
engagement of the World War. 

Again in the territory of our own church at home, the Bible is 
being circulated in some forty different languages and dialects to 
immigrants who are becoming an increasingly large proportion of our 
population even in North Carolina. Perhaps our ministers and work- 
ers might find a gift of the Bible in his native tongue to these stran- 
gers within our gates to be very effective means of reaching them. 
Five of the nine home agencies of the Society lie in the bounds of 
our church and the value of their work can scarcely be overestimated. 
Today the Bible is needed in our North Carolina homes as greatly 
as ever, or even more, because of the increasing trend to allow pleas- 
ure seeking to crowd out sacred and holy things. All too often a 
cynical if not hostile attitude toward things sacred is reflected in 
the motion pictures, magazines, and current fiction. The Bible in 
the home is the readiest and most powerful antidote for this poison. 
More and more with the crowded curriculum of the average public 
school, Bible reading is being crowded out even in chapel exercises. 
In many States it is now barred by law. It is of interest to note 
that a case is now pending before the Supreme Court from the State 
of Washington to determine whether the Bible shall be barred from 
the public schools of that State as at present is the case. Thus every 
encouragement should be given and every effort made to place the 
Bible in every North Carolina home. Through our connection with 
the American Bible Society, we are contributing our efforts to this 
end in supporting the Bible Cause. 

During these years, the Bible Cause Committee of King's Moun- 
tain Presbytery has distributed more than 4000 Bibles and portions 
within the bounds of the Presbytery through the establishment of 
a depository for the American Bible Society in the congregational 
field of the First Presbyterian Church of Gastonia. This has been 
the means of increasing the value of personal work through the 
ready entrance obtained into the homes of all classes. 



Synod of North Carolina 595 



It is encouraging to note that seemingly there is an increasing 
yearning for the Bible itself and Bible study among the whole mass 
of our people. We find this quickened interest reflected in the sec- 
ular as well as the religious press. Surely our ministry is the natur- 
al and most effective medium of increasing this awakened interest. 

Of the $23,145 which Assembly contributed last year to this 
cause, $3519 was from the Synod of North Carolina. When we think 
of the benefits we have received from the work of the American Bi- 
ble Society, not only in missions abroad but on the Home mission 
field of our own State, it would seem that we are still very much their 
debtor. 

We recommend: 

1. That our ministers faithfully present this cause to the peo- 
ple and suggest Universal Bible Sunday, November 27, as an ap- 
propriate day for special sermon on this line. 

2. That each church be urged to give this cause its full ap- 
portionment on the budget. 

3. That all churches engaged in local congregational mission 
work are urged to do more work in distributing the Scriptures. Ee- 
lations can be established by writing to the Southern Agency of 
the American Bible Society, Eichmond, Virginia; Eev. M. B. Porter, 
Secretary. 

Submitted by, 
GAEL B. CEAIG, Chairman of the Bible Cause. 

The special order for the evening was a popular meeting 
in the interest of Foreign Missions. Rev. J. M. Grier, D. D., 
Chairman of the Permanent Committee on Foreign Missions, 
presented the- annual report, which was received, and, pend- 
ing its adoption. Synod heard interesting addresses on our 
work in China, by Dr. D. W. Richardson, of the Synod of 
South Carolina, and Rev. Lacy L. Little. 

The report was adopted as a whole and is as follows : 

REPOET OF COMMITTEE ON FOREIGN MISSIONS 

In presenting report on progress made by our church in obeying 
her Master's great command, "Go ye into all the world and preach 
the gospel," we are thankful to note increase in additions to our 
church abroad on confession of faith, 4690 being thus added. 



596 



Minutes of the 



We note also increased interest in this great cause as evidenced 
by $75,971.00 increase in gifts over those of preceding year. Total 
contributions by whole church being $1,153,629.00, for year ending 
March 31st, 1921. 

To offset these encouraging features is the advance in cost of 
administering the work which increased more rapidly than the gifts 
to cause — making a deficit for the year, of $79,186.00, which added 
to accumulated deficit of preceding years, makes a total of $242,- 
626.00. 

We do well to recount the part our own Synod performed during 
past year. Increase in gifts in our bounds was $57,912.00 over pre- 
ceding year — ^making an increase of $342,000.00. . Had this ratio of 
increase been maintained over whole church, our indebtedness would 
have been wiped out and $125,933.00 would have been left in the 
treasury. Every Presbytery in the Synod shared in this increase, 
and we deem it of sufficient importance as to justify detailed state- 
ment for two preceding years: 

Albemarle gave in 1921, $12230 in 1920, 

27380 in 1920, 
35348 in 1920, 
10331 in 1920, 
35664 in 1920.

29312 increase 4820 



Synod 



gave in 1921, $223861 in 1920, $165949 increase$57922 



We can but be moved by the church 's slowness of heart to an- 
swer her Lord 's command, yet if we glance backward and make com- 
parison by ten year periods there is still greater cause for gratitude 
to God for working in the hearts of people in our Sj^nod to respond 
by giving. In 1871, just fifty years ago, our Synod gave to this 
cause $1928.00, in 1881 gifts rose to $5917.00, in 1891 to $20393.00. 
Next ten years marked a slight decrease as the churches in the pres- 
ent bounds of our Synod gave only $19430.00 in 1901. But in 1911 
gifts rose to $71,165, while in 1921 (as noted above) gifts were $223,- 
861. 

Nor has our interest been confined to financial gifts, we have 
made the more costly offering; forty-two of our sons and daughters 
now being engaged in mission work abroad. 

We note with gratitude that in early months of present year 
trirty-four new missionaries were sent out to reinforce our sorely 
tried and over-worked laborers abroad. 



Synod of North Carolina 597 

In view of the great scarcity of physicians in many of our mis- 
sions abroad, we recommend that Synod directs her pastors and ses- 
sions to call attention of our consecrated physicians to this impera- 
tive need and encourage them to volunteer for this service. 

J. M. GKIEE, Chairman. 

The committee on the Minutes of Synod made the follow- 
ing report which was adopted : 

Your committee on the Minutes of Synod respectfully report: 

1. That a certified copy of the Minutes of 1920 was placed in 
our hands and was carefully examined. 

2. That we find that the Minutes seem to be faithfully kept 
and are correctly and neatly printed. 

3. That the Minutes were submitted to the General Assembly 
in St. Louis, Missouri, for review, and were examined and approved 
by that body. 

4. We recommend the approval of the Minutes by the Synod. 

Eespectfully submitted, 

EUGENE ALEXANDEE, Chairman. 

The committee on the Sabbath and Family Religion made 
the following report which was adopted : 

REPORT ON SABBATH OBSERVANCE AND FAMILY RELIGION 

Your committee begs to make the following report: 

That as we have been commanded to "Eemember the Sabbath 
Day to keep it holy" (Exodus 20:8) and as we see that command- 
ment continually being shamefully broken, week after week, not only 
by the people in general, but we are sorry to say by thousands who 
claim Christ as Lord and Master, we have to report that the Ameri- 
ican Christian Sabbath is in danger of becoming a thing of the past 
unless the Church of the living God sounds the alarm and God's peo- 
ple return to Him who is willing to forgive when they repent. 

From all reports come the sad news that family altars are few 
and that personal obligations to the church service are lightly con- 
sidered. The study of the Word and the Catechisms in both homes 
and churcljes i§ sadly neglected. 



598 Minutes op the 



The great need of our land today is men and women strong and 
true made so by the Word being hid in their hearts and practiced in 
their lives. 

In the church service we seldom find God's people with the 
Word in their hands, and sometimes very little of it being read in 
their homes. 

•On the other hand we are glad to report that we believe there is 
an improvement along the lines of Bible study and Sabbath observ- 
ance among the people of our church as the result of an awakening 
to the need of God 's Word and reverence for His day and house. 

Your committee begs to offer the following recommendations: 

1. That the parents of our beloved church be called upon to rear 
in their homes the family altar, to read and pray with their children, 
to go with and be with them in the Bible schools, to have them with 
them in the church services and to teach them to give of their sub- 
stance to the Lord's work. 

2. That the churches and Bible schools be called upon as never 
before to warn against Sabbath desecration and to remind the people 
of the evils that comes therefrom. 

3. That our Bible schools be urged to teach the Word and the 
Catechisms w^ith an earnestness that we believe God's command re- 
quires. 

4. That in view of the fact that the coming General Assembly 
is to be an "Evangelistic Assembly" we would urge that an effort be 
made by the sessions to establish in their churches and Bible schools 
a "Laymen's Evangelistic Circle." 

5. That we ask the Synod to now render unto God a special 
prayer of praise and thanksgiving for what has been accomplished 
and to most earnestly entreat our Heavenly Father, for Christ's sake 
to give us through His holy Spirit a conception of the great need and 
his willingness and readiness to use and bless us in our efforts to re- 
store the Christian Sabbath and Family Religion in the hearts of 
men as we believe God has ordained. 

Respectfully submitted, 

GEORGE W. LEE, Chairman. 

Synod was then led in prayer, by Kev. C. B. Craig, for 
God's blessing on these two fundamental Christian institu- 
tions.

600 Minutes of the 



FOURTH DAY— Morning Session 

Tarboro, N. C, Friday, Oct. 21, 1921. 

The Synod met at 9:00 o'clock and Devotional Exercises 
were conducted by Eev. W. A. Murray. 

The Minutes of yesterday's sessions were read and ap- 
proved. 

The Historical Committee reported that it had nothing 
of importance to report. Adopted. 

It was ordered that the Superintendent of Home Mis- 
sions, Rev. A. W. Crawford, be made a special committee to 
assist the Stated Clerks of the Presbyteries, in securing a cor- 
rect list of the Elders and Deacons of the Synod and their ad- 
dresses. 

It was ordered that the usual number, (1000) of minutes, 
including the list of Elders and Deacons, be published, and, 
in addition, 200 extra copies of this list of Elders and Dea- 
cons be published separately, to make the whole number 1200 
copies. 

A supplement to the report on Nominations was adopted, 
nameh" : 

That the Committee to confer on the colored school proposed hj 
Eev. D. 11. Scaulou be composed of the following seven members: 

Eev. D. H. Scanlon, Durham; Eev. C. E. Hodgin, Greensboro; 
Elder E. P. Wharton, Greensboro; Deacon E. M. Carmichael, Elder 
W. H. Sprunt, Wilmington; Elder Jno. E. Pharr, Charlotte; Elder Dr. 
D. H. Hill, Ealeigh. 

The committee to investigate and coordinate all the com- 
mittees of Synod was continued — ( See Minutes of Synod, page 
448) and is as follows: 

J. E. Bridges, Mecklenburg; D. H. Scanlon, Orange; S. E. Mc- 
Queen, Fayetteville; J. E. Purcell, Wilmington; H. B. Searight, Al- 
fa' marie; W. S. Wilson, King's Mountain; C. M. Eichards, Concord. 



Synod op Noeth Carolina 601 

Dr. Bridges was requested to have the Moderator's ser- 
mon published iu the Presbyterian Standard. 

The following Resolutions in regard to the Presbyterian 
Standard was adopted: 

The Syuod of North Carolina iu Session at Tarboro, North Car- 
olina, wishes to record its hearty and grateful appreciation of the 
splendid work and increasing influence of the Presbyterian Standard. 

We endorse with high admiration the editorial management of 
the paper. We warmly commend the Standard to our people as the 
official organ of the Synod and earnestly urge our ministers and ses- 
sions to endeavor to place it iu every Presbyterian home in the Synod. 

The following report on the Narratives or Addresses to 
the Churches was adopted : 

The committee on Narrative respectfully reports as follows: 

1. Reports from the Presbyteries indicate that most of the 
churches are supplied with preaching, but many of them have ser- 
vices on only two Sundays a month, and some of them on only one 
Sunday. 

2. Probably sixty-five per cent of the church members attend 
the Sabbath services with reasonable regularity, and not more than 
twenty or twenty-five per cent attend the weekly prayer meeting. 

3. The number of additions on profession of faith is encourag- 
ing and calls for profound gratitude. The reported additions by let- 
ter encouiages the belief that those who move their homes usually 
transfer their membership. 

•i. A large proportion of the additions on profession are from 
the Sunday school. 

5. Most of the churches have held at least one series of evan- 
gelistic services, resulting in some instances in accessions to the mem- 
bership and in stimulating the spiritual life of older members. 

6. It is painfully evident that comparatively few families hold 
family worship, and fewer still belong to the Family Altar League. 

7. Most of the churches hold at least two communion services 
a year, a few of them only one. These services do not appear to be 
attended by more than seventy per cent of the membership. 



602 Minutes of the 



8. A fairly good observance of the Sabbath is generally report- 
ed, but it is probably due to lowering of the standard rather than 
to a due regard for the sanctity of the day. 

9. We fear that in many of our churches there is less faithful- 
ness than formerly on the part of parents in presenting their chil- 
dren for baptism. 

10. Many parents, we fear, are remiss in the duty of teaching 
their children the catechisms — -too generally relegating this impor- 
tant work to the Sunday school teachers. 

11. The catechisms are taught in many of the Sunday schools, 
but their use is not so general as it should be. 

12. Pupils memorize the Scriptures to a small extent. There 
appears to be no general effort to have them memorize hymns. 

13. Pastors are faithful almost without exception in teaching 
the duty of Stewardship. 

14. We believe the number of tithers is increasing, but not 
mth encouraging rapidity. 

15. Only a small proportion of the churches paid in full the ap- 
portionments for benevolences. 

16. Pastors' salaries have generally been fully paid. 

17. The formal reports indicate that worldly conformity is not 
generally prevalent, but we fear that these reports are due to a low 
standard rather than to a high state of spirituality. 

18. Few of the churches report evangelistic services outside of 
their bounds, due doubtless to the fact that there is no territory con- 
tiguous that is not within the bounds of neighboring churches. 

19. We do not believe that earnest and systematic efforts by pas- 
tors and sessions to secure recruits for the ministry are as general as 
they should be, and Synod urges upon the churches a more faithful 
consideration of this all-important subject. 

Eespectfully submitted, 

W. E. COPPEDGE, Chairman. 

The eonunittee on Leave of Absence reported as follows, 
which was adopted:

Synod of North Carolina 613 



REPORT OF BOARD OF REGENTS OF BARIUM SPRINGS 

At its last meeting Synod made a new departure in its Orphans' 
work by electing a Board of Eegents composed of eight men and 
eight women. Of that number three declined to serve, and in ac- 
cordance with the Charter the Board elected in their place to serve 
until this meeting of Synod, Mr. C. A. Clark, of Clarkton, Mrs. A. 
M. Fairley, of Laurinburg, and Mrs. Edward J. Johnson, of Winston- 
Salem. The Board has held four meetings during the year, three of 
them at the Orphanage. These meetings have been well attended. 
From the regular annual meeting last week, only one member was ab- 
sent. We have made a careful examination of the buildings, grounds, 
equipment, farm and dairy, and have gone as thoroughly as possible 
into all questions of management, policy, finance and future progress. 

In addition to this the Executive Committee spent two whole days 
at Barium, and held one meeting in Charlotte. Different members of 
the Board have from time to time visited the institution in order 
that they might keep in closest touch with the work. 

CHILDEEN 

We are now caring for 234 children, 120 boys, and 114 girls. 
Their health during the year has been good. There have been no 
serious epidemics and no deaths. These children appear to be happy 
and contented, and are comfortably clothed and given an abundance- 
of wholesome food. The superintendent and teachers eat with the 
-.'hildren in the dining-room. Upon the advice of the home physi- 
cian thirty children have had tonsils and adenoids removed and quite 
a number have been fitted with glasses. We believe that the morale 
of the institution has shown real improvement during the year. There 
have been only four runaways, as against thirty-eight last year. 
Children have shown unwillingness to leave the Home to go into the 
private homes of people who wish to adopt them. And a most grati- 
fying desire to fix up and keep the cottages attractive is being shown 
by the children themselves. 

IMPROVEMENTS 

During the year a number of improvements have been made. 
Most of these improvements were authorized by the old Board and 
we have merely carried out their plans. The mechanical department 
with the aid of the boys and two carpenters have repaired the Alex- 
ander Building, the old Industrial Building, which had been destroy- 
ed by fire. It has been converted into a boy's dormitory and will 
furnish nepded quarters for the squad of dairy boys. These boys had 



614 Minutes of the 



been housed in Eound Knob Cottage, which was merel}' an old barn 
fitted up temporarily as a make-shift. A modern potato house has 
also been completed during the year for the housing of potatoes, a 
big item in the food supply of the Home. The necessary repairs have 
been made on different buildings and some necessary equipment pur- 
chased to the amount of $2,659.50. Through the generosity of Messrs 
James and W. H. Sprunt of Wilmington, the Sprunt Infirmary has 
been supplied with additional equipment in the way of tables, beds, 
etc. The Board has also purchased and placed at the cottages, play- 
ground equipment, consisting of slides, giant strides and swings. 
These things have added much to the pleasure of the children, and 
have been the source of much innocent and wholesome enjoyment. 

BUILDINGS 

A careful examination of the present buildings show that all 
are in need of repairs. There should be, as soon as possible, a com- 
plete overhauling of all the cottages. We hope that Synod will pro- 
vide funds with which this can be done. It will be a matter of good 
business to do this. It will also exert a wholesome influence upon 
the children themselves, as shabby buildings cannot V)ut tend to de- 
velop in them careless and slip-shod traits of character. 

The Board has authorized the construction of two new buildings. 
The contracts have been let and the work begun. The first is a cot- 
tage for girls to be known as the Woman's Building. This building 
is located just across the road from Howard Cottage. It will be a 
two-story, brick structure 152 by 48 feet. It will accomodate sixty- 
four girls. It is of the latest type of construction, each floor being 
a separate unit with separate entrances and smoke-proof stairways. 
It will indeed be a double cottage, with a matron and entirely sep- 
arate group of girls on each floor. The large basement will be well 
lighted and fitted up for play-rooms for indoor games and systematic 
exercises. This building will cost about $65,000, complete and fur- 
nished. Of this amount the women of the State have already in 
hand $45,000 and are enthusiastically proceeding with the task of 
raising the balance. They have through their leaders pledged them- 
selves to the completion and furnishing of this building. 

The second building is a new dining-room and kitchen. This 
building will be the old Eumple Hall greatly enlarged and improved. 
Two new wings will be added. The old kitchen which was entirely 
inadequate will be torn away and a modern, up-to-datb kitchen built 
in its place. Wh^n finished this building will provide a dining- 
room for 500 children and the necessary workers, a kitchen of suffi- 
cient size to prepare food for this nunjber, dormitory space for 62 



Synod op North Carolina 615 

girls, the number required to do the work in the dining-room and 
kitchen. This building will cost when completed and furnished $60,- 
000. In going ahead with these projects the Board feels that it has 
but carried out the instructions of the Synod last year, and the ac- 
tions of previous years. 

INDUSTRIAL TRAINING 

The Board of Regents feel that more emphasis should be laid 
on this part of the work of the Home. The destruction by fire of 
the Industrial Building and the printing plant has broken up the 
training of the boys along this line. A business course should be 
added to the school curriculum. The Board has this matter under 
consideration and has a special committee appointed to study the 
whole subject of industrial training and bring in recommendations 
at its next meeting. 

SUPERINTENDENT OF ORPHANS' WORK 

Rev. W. T. Walker, the Superintendent or Orphans' work for the 
State, tendered his resignation as such the first of the year. The 
Board believes that there is a great field here for development, out- 
side and beyond the work of the Home itself. The work of the Su- 
perintendent of Orphans' has already been fourfold: "First, an effort 
to establish an Orphans' Home for paying inmates; second, making 
some provision for children having no recognized parents; third, aid- 
ing Christian mothers who have lost their husbands and lack means 
in rearing their own children, and fourth, finding suitable orphans to 
be adopted by parents having means, but no children. ' ' The Board 
has been in search of a man for this work, but has so far been un- 
able to find him. 

BEQUESTS 

During the year the Board has received from the will of Mrs. 
Mary D. Scott, $2,270.49, by bequest through the will of R. R. King, 
$100.00, and by bequest through the wt.11 of J. C. Burroughs a balance 
of $18,542.96; making a total of $20,913.45, which has been received 
during the year. In addition to these amounts already received, the 
institution will receive a bequest of $25,000, through the will of the 
late George Watts, of Durham. We would lay upon the hearts of 
our people very earnestly this mode of helping our Orphans ' work. 
We hope that it will mor.^ and more become the custom of the Pres 
byterians throughout the State to remember the Orphanage in their 
wills. 



616 Minutes of the 



FINANCE 

The Treasurer 's report, which is appended to this, shows that our 
receipts for the year have been $59,868.59. This is a loss of $i, 235.42 
in the contributions of the churches. We sincerely hope that this 
does not mean a falling off of interest in the orphange work. The 
enlarged building program will add this coming year a hundred new 
children and increase correspondingly our expenses. 

The total expenditures for the year were $66,210.03. Of that 
amount $5,410.97 was expended for items that have been ordered by 
the previous Board, including a truck, an automobile, a piano and 
certain building repairs, leaving the total expenditures for the year 
under the new management $60,799.06, an increase of $1,969.60. We 
begin the new year with a balance of $5,032.24. The Treasurer's 
books have been audited by Todd & McCullough, certified accountants, 
of Charlotte, N. C, and their report is attached. 

We also make the following recommendations: 

1. That the S^'nod set as its goal for its Orphans' Home the 
care of at least 500 children and pledge itself to provide as soon as 
possible the necessary cottages and buildings to properly take care 
of this number. 

2. That the Synod approve the action of the Board in ordering 
the construction of the Woman's Building for girls. 

3. That the Synod approve the action of the Board in the re- 
modeling of Kumple Hall. 

4. That the Synod approve the Thanksgiving Campaign for 
$125,000, $25,000 to be used for support fund and $100,000 for build- 
ing fund, the latter amount to be distributed as follows: $65,000 for 
the work of Eumple Hall; $10,000 for the laundry building, and $25,- 
000 for repairs. 

5. That the Synod once more urge the Sunday schools to give 
at least one Sunday a month to an offering for the support fund, as 
one of the best ways of providing for the work. 

6. That the Synod apportion the sum of $75,000, and that it 
be divided among the Presbyteries as follows: 

Albemarle $ 7600 

Concord 12600 

Favetteville 15000
