REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON RESCUE HOME AND WORK
IN SAN ANTONIO.
Your committee on the Rescue Home and Work in San Antonio
has had a full statement and explanation from Rev. J. D. Scott,
Commissioner appointed by the West Texas Conference to look
after the interests of the institution. Approximately 1,020 girls
have passed through this Home. It is now proposed to place it
upon a firmer basis and to enlarge its scope. The work done
does not cover the same ground as that of the Virginia K. John-
son Home in Dallas, The salary of the Commissioner is provided
for by the West Texas Conference, but the co-operation of the
other Conferences of Texas Methodism is now sought. We make
the following recommendations:
1. We express our hearty sympathy with this good cause, and
as far as practicable, open our churches to Brother Scott during
the present Conference year, extending to him our good will
and hearty co-operation.
2. The future relationship of our Conference to this work
will require more extended consideration and we refer the sub-
ject to our Social Service Cotmmission for report at our next

tonio Rescue Home, but having a more general bearing, have
been brought to our attention.

hope that our pastors will on suitable occasion, give the subject
Secondly, the International Purity Congress is now meeting in
Minneapolis. We recommend that the Christian greeting and
hearty good-will of this Conference be transmitted to the Con-
gress in a night letter.
