Atlanta Presbyterian of the South (Newspaper) - March 31, 1920, Atlanta, Georgia
The presbyterian of the South v0u m _ Richmond Van a March 31,1921 ctr trial a otes and comment Flowers May travel a Long Way without losing their fragrance. A hour tit that Lias just come to us from China is most re Freiling and is most highly appreciated. This paragraph is taken from a letter from one of leading missionaries in China. As it was not written for publication we withhold the name of the writer lie says a in these Days when so Many new isms Are running rampant and so Many people seem to believe nothing that they ought to believe it is refreshing and most helpful to hear the Clear True ring of your paper. Every one can always know where the presbyterian of the South stands and it always stands in the right place a organic Union of All evangelical churches is advocated by the Northern general Assembly and a commission was appointed to invite All these churches to Send commissions to a joint conference to discuss and propose plans by which this Union could he brought about. The conference was called but very few of the denominations were represented. One of the striking facts about this whole matter is that so far As we have seen not one of the Church papers of the Northern Hurch is at All in favor of this proposed conglomerate merging of All churches though practically All of them Are in favor of the organic Union it it of the various branches of the presbyterian it Hurch. Do the papers reflect the sentiment of the Church at Large in the North Mission court is a name that is becoming familiar in our Church and knowledge of it is reaching out into our Mission Licals. As Many of our readers know it is a he name of a building which is being erected in Richmond As a Home for the missionaries of our Hurch Ami their families when Thev a nine Back from their Fields of labor on fur to Gigli whore they May rest and is freshened up Ltd it do better work than Ever when they return of their Fields. A Short time ago a missionary Quot a our Church said that when lie started Back to this country lie did not know to what i lace to have his baggage checked As he did Quot Quot to know where he and his family could find Ltd place to spend their furlough. Another missionary said that the thought of her fur Tough Hung Over her As a dark Cloud. She 1 Quot new that it was necessary for her and. Her husband to come Back to this country to rest Quot it they had no place to go. The salary which hot it received would not enable them to Hoard for their family. These arc just two a uses where Many others might he Given. A so All band of Noble women in Richmond a"1cd by women All Over the Church Are prodding for this need by erecting an apartment of it no which will take Enre of four families at time. It is located near the Union to lion Quot of final Seminary and the Assembly Strain a Quot a school in one of the most Beautiful Resi h tial sections of the City. It is hoped to have 1 finished in n few months. Applications for s use Are already being received. In Oon a i Lenee of the High Cost of building $5,000 is still needed to Complete this much needed Home. Is there not some big hearted Man among our readers who will give this amount lifts of any size May he sent to mrs. 0. R. Cannon 300 Grace Street Richmond a. Very member canvass Lias been held in 1�?�?� Many of our churches under the old plan of holding it in March. General reports from these churches have not been received vet. Other churches Are postponing the canvass until the time suggested by the inter Church movement april 21st-May 2. The churches that have not taken the canvass have a Good Opportunity to study what the others have done to profit by avoiding Auy mistakes or failures they have made and to be inspired by their successes. One difficulty in the past has been that Many churches did i it make the canvass and another is that Many failed to report promptly the result of their canvass. It is earnestly hoped that there will he no slackers this year in either respect. A Felt a r Xan cig has taken session of this country and has run riot Over tic whole land. Like All forms of evil it Lias grown worse and worse. J lie older and loss objectionable forms have practically been discarded. The modern dance Lias become so bad that even the dancing masters Are becoming uneasy. They Are afraid Liat there will be a revulsion of Public feeling that will have a tendency to put a Stop to dancing. It is devoutly to be hoped that their fears May lie More than justified. The Nashville Christian advocate Suys a according to an Appeal sent let a the dancing masters association of America to those who conduct dunce hulls throughout the country their business is in great danger. They have issued a pamphlet says a news report to do not know How to get hold of the pamphlet in which they place the stamp of severe disapproval upon the exaggerated movements that May be observed on the dance floors today. They say that unless the objectionable is eliminated dancing will become extinct. We Are sure that you realize with us Trio pamphlet says that if dancing is to lie kept out of the discard it is up to those of us who Are vitally interested to do our Liest right now to raise the Standard. Ten Plain done to Are suggested for those who want to make a Start toward cleaning up the dance. Condensed they arc done to permit vulgar cheap jazz music to lie played. Done to permit Young men to hold their partners tightly. Done to permit partners to dunce with Cheeks close or touching. Done to permit neck holds. Done to permit shimmying. Done to permit dancers to Lako either exceptionally Long or Short Steps. Don t dance from the Waist up. Done to permit suggestive movements. Done to permit dancers to copy the extremes that Are now used on the Modem stage. Done to hesitate to Roviest or a actionable dancing couples to Incavo the room. To move the adoption of one Resolution As a substitute for these ton As follows done to Poi libation is a curse to the country a say the advocates of the liquor business. Over against this statement place the l aet that Loston bus closed the department of its almshouse that provided Homes for tramps and other Down and out unfortunates As there Lias not been an inmate in it for some time. Add this fact the Alleghany county pa., jail which was formerly kept crowded to capacity now Lias five Hundred unoccupied cells. Similar statements Are coining from All parts of the country. A a Phe Federal Council of the churches of a Christ in America does some queer things. This Para graph is Elip ted from a communication just sent out by it a the committee on inter relations Between theological seminaries was a Means of strengthening another of the 1 Xmas Between the two continents. Its recommendations included an Exchange of professors and students Anil also of fellowships Between the seminaries of Europe and America. The first of these Exchange students is now in residence at Union theological Seminary new York. This seems to suggest that this committee had something to do with the arrangements for the inter Clinge of students. At any Rute this information As to the Seminary selected seems to indicate that the selection met with the approval of the committee. We cannot help wondering Why the most discredited theological Seminary in this country should have been chosen to give a european student his ideas of american theology. L Era Man Lias his Price a soften said and there Are Many who think that any Man can is a night if enough Money is offered. So thought the liquor men when they wanted to contest the constitutionality of the prohibition amendment to the National Constitution. They wanted a Man to represent them in court whose name As Well As his ability would give him influence. So they went to Charles e. Hughes recently a member of the supreme court of lie United states and later Republican candidate for 1�?Tresident against Woodrow Wilson. I Bey Laid on the table Lieford him a chock for $150,000, which was to lie his fee if he would undertake their ease. Or. Hughes replied a i would not Champion this cause before the courts for any sum of Money you could us Quot or a it i then went to sex president Taft and offered him a Blank Check which be was told to fill in with any amount to might choose of lie would undertake their ease. His reply was no less pointed than that of or. Hughes. He said a gentlemen you a null not pile enough Gold on this continent to induce me to take your ease Lic fore the courts and Lief Ore the Public for i will have von know my conscience is not for a ale. A America is promo of the fact that she has men of such prominence who Are above Price when an Effort is made to induce them to advocate that which is evil. This nation is Strong because she has Many such men and May their Tribo increase. A
