DR. WILLIAMS LECTURE A REAL EVENT
OF CHAUTAUQUA WEEK
Dr. Elmer Lynn Williams has commanded the admiration of thousands
over the country who know of his work in cleaning up vice and crime in
Chicago's Ipup district. Jle went into this district a few years ago as pastor
of a church in the heart of Chicago's million or two population. His parish
was in the center of the vice district. Respectable families were living
alongside gamblers, thugs and thieves. In six years he succeeded in c leaning
up much of this vice. He had the co-operation of pi iosTs and ministers of
all creeds, the city . authorities and the police, and after one of the most
fearless campaigns ever waged in that city, he secured roforms theretofore
Dr. Williams' experience in social problems of the city and community
and as a leader in many great reforms, equips him with a knowledge and
power to handle one of the greatest reconstruction probrems facing the world
today, "Public Morals and Reconstruction."
