DR. E. Y. MULLINS
President Southern Baptist Theologi-
Ml 8emlnary, Who is' Touring South.
Following the close tif the second
JTear of the Baptist 75 Million Cam-
paign April 30. several thousand mes-
sengers from the local churches are
Expected to assemble at Chattanooga,
ftenn., for the seventy-sixth annual
Session of the, Southern Baptist .Con-
tention. The Convention met in
Chattanooga last in May. 1906, and
taring the Interim there has been a
barked growth in every department
@f the Convention's activities and in
the numbers and work of the local
Churches as well. The total number of
baptists reported to the Convention in
INTO was 1,865,784, while last May,
fourteen years later, when the body
■let In Washington, the total member-
Ship of the local churches as reported
Was 2.961,348, or a gain of 1.106.664.
The returns for this year are not yet
available, but Inasmuch as It Ik known
there were practically 175,000 addi-
tions to the local churches last year
by baptism alone, thpre is every rea-
son to believe the showing for 1921
Will be even larger.
Growth Shown in All I ines.
At the same time there has been a
marked increase in the membership
Of the churches, there has been a dis-
tinct advance in all departments of
local and denominational work, it ts

erty lias mounted from 4.t>U1.122 in
1906 to $74,273,728 in l!i20, an increase

tributions to missions and benevo-

Fourteen years ago the contributions
to all purposes in a year were $5,941,-

Next Meeting Important.
The approaching session of the
Convention is regarded as vitally im
portant to the future of the denomina-
tion's. work. It is hoped that bv the
Convention two-fifths .if all subscrip-
tions to. the 75 Million Campaign will
have been paid in cash and that the
program for the completion of _ the
remainder of the campaign task can
be formulated at this , time Dr. J B.
Oambrell. president of the Convention,
and Dr. E. Y. Mullins. who recently
completed a tour of Europe, where
they carried fraternal greetings to the
Baptists of that continent, will give
their impressions of Baptist opportu-
nity In that country, while Dr. George
W. Tnnet and l)r. J. F. Ijove, who rep-
resented the Foreign Mission Board
at the London Conference last sum-
mer when the mission fields of Europe
were considered, will tell of the new
territory of Spain, Jugo-Slavia. Hun-
gary, Rouraanla and Southern Russia,
which Southern Baptists are asked to
occupy. This territory is as large as
the Southern States and has a popu-
lation of 128,000,000.
All the 'boards of the Convention
will report the largest year's accom-
plishments in their history, the Home
Mission Board being scheduled bo re-
port the completion of its million dol-
lar loan fund for church building, in
addition to the aiding of a thousand
churches during the year with gifts
and loans for the erection of new
houses of worship. The Sunday School
Board frill report more than $1,000,000
in sales for the year and with collec-
tions as well si sales better than at
any previous time in Its history.

YOUTH TRISECTS ARC

HI* Work Proves Up Arithmetically
and Geometric Proof Will Be Work-
ed With Teachers' Assistance.
Lynn, Mass.—Arthur Rogers, a
senior at Lynn Classic high school
eighteen years old, lias solved three
methods Of trisecting an arc or angle,
using, only a straight edge and com
pass, professors at the school an
hounced. The feat of Rogers has
never been accomplished except with
measuring instruments, and those win;
examined the youngster's work could
find no flaw with it.
Although he has proved his work
arithmetically, no proof has yet been
discovered geometrically, and the
mathematics teachers at the school
will help Rogers to solve this.
Edwin Hnadley. teacher, believes
the key will be found in the I'ytha
goras theorem; the square of the
hvpotheneuse of a right triangle
equal to the sum of the squares on
the other two sides. In addition to
trisecting an arc, Rogers lias gone
further by proving that he can divide
the arc into any number of "equal
parrs. Rogers demonstrated his dis-

In Vienna was sent out by the Na-
tional Information Bureau. Inc., of 1
Madison avenue. The bureau has
found that some of these pleas were
identical in wording and that the
same pictures of emaciated children
were enclosed. Different addresses
were given in Vienna, but it was the
conclusion of the bureau that the let-
ters were fraudulent.
These letters told of finding the ad-
dress of the "American friend," of the
pitiful circumstances of the family,
and concluded with a blessing for an
expected gift. In concluding its warn-
ing the bureau said :
"Through the European Relief
Council, of which Herbert C. Hoover
Is chairman, food drafts can be bought
and sent to needy Individuals In Vien-
na who are known to American giv-
ers. or the council will use its dis-
cretion in distributing help to those
who need It most."

The pleasure is worth it. There's no sub-
stitute for Camel quality and that mild,
fragrant Camel blend.
The fellow who smokes Camels, wants
Camels. That's because Camels have a
smoothness, a fragrance and a mildness you
can't get in another cigarette.
Don't let anyone tell you that any other
cigarette at any price is so good as Camels.
Let your own taste ie the judge. Try
Camels for yourself. A few smooth, refreshing
puffs and you'd walk a mile for a Camel, too.
