After Reports and Topics Discussed,
Double Budget and Elect
The 'Woman's Missionary Society
of the Presbyterian Church, held
their annual Relay Mission Study
Class yesterday at the home of Mrs.
C. A. Rawls and was well attended.
At this class the women took the
text. "Women Workers of the Or
ient" by Margaret E. Burton as a
study. At a class of this kind thjg
parts nwist be most thoroughly stud
ied before hand and clearly present
ed at the time and in this respect
yesterday's class held no disap
point mentsf Mrs. McClusky. in
whose hands had been trusted the
planing of the program, presided for
the day and held the thought as a
whole well before the class. With
her knowledge of and enthusiasm
for missions she contributed much
to the interest of the class. Most
splendidly the different chapters of
the text were presented by Mrs. Far
ly, Mrs. Wassell. Mrs. Brown. Mrs.
McClusky. It was a sincere regret
that MrsJ Travis was hindered by
illness from presenting her chapter
yesterday. At another time the so
ciety looks forward to -hearing this.
The final session was one of general
discussion and was capably presided
over by Mrs. Will Streight. This
was spicy and interesing and gave
every one the opportunity of taking
part. Mrs. Allison took charge of
the devotional hours and presented
to th? society by many scriptural
passages and comments the gifts
Christianity had bestowed upon
woman. making her listeners
thoughtful of the every day bless
ings of life and reminded them that
Christianity is what makes -.their
lives so much above that of the
Aside from the text, two excellent
talks were given. The topics were
"The College Girls of Chifia," by
Mrs. John Gorder; "India as it is
today." by Mrs. I). C. Morgan.
At teh thirty there was held a
business session at which the an
nual reports of the officers were read
and accepted and showed the so
ciety in a good condition. The of
ficers of the coming year were elect
ed as follows:
President Mrs. Frank Shopp.
Vice President Mrs. J. B. Mart
in. Treasurer Mrs. D. C. Morgan.
Secretary and Educational Secre
tary Miss Carrie TJaird.
The goals for the coming year
were presented aid discussed by all
and with no hesitancy the society de
cided to more than double the
amount subscribed last year, as
their aiiare for the Church benevo
lent budget. At four thirty the
day's session closed and the women
left feeling they had spent the time
pleasantly and profitably and held a
much better understanding of the
Oriental woman and a keener sym
pathy with her many problems.
They all felt greatly indebted to
Mrs. Rawls whose thought fulness as
a hostess was in evidence at every
turn. Also to the Auxiliary Com
mittee Mrs. Dickson, Mrs. Mann.
Mrs. Schneider and Mrs. Holmes
who prepared and served the splend
id luncheon, thus relieving all the
ladies of the Missionary Society for
the complete .session of the Study
Class. Three new members were en
rolled into, the society.
