VOLUME XXVIII COLLEGEDALE, TENNESSEE, AUGUST 19, 1936 NUMBER 34 How To Succeed E• W. Wolfe One of the most successful ways of doing Harvest Ingathering work is from house to house. Here we come in contact with the people in their own environment; meet people where we can search for souls. Going to the door we ring the bell, and if not invited inside we make a canvass outside. The paper should be fully read and as much of the printed canvass learned as possible. Then adapt it to your needs by making a canvass of your own as you work it out before the people. Keep two things in mind as you work, namely, souls and money. Try to leave the ones solicited so that 'you may return again another time. Repeated contacts bring more than single ones. Interest them in our world work, also in the welfare work of the church. Then appeal for the offering asking for more than you expect to get. You can always come down easier than you can go up. Although your offerings may be small, keep going. Dimes and nickles make dollars. Remember too, you are out for souls. Souls are there in the houses though they don't give. They need Christ. If Satan has bound them in sin, take Jesus to them. Keep going out even if the money comes slowly. It is all right to go where you can get large offerings but that will not excuse you from missing those in their homes. Jesus is saying, "Go work today in my vineyard." None can take our place in this work. Many will not come to hear a preacher, we must go to them with the truth of the Bible. Carry a note book and some extra reading. Give tracts or other literature to those who do not donate. Take the names of those interested and follow up with other reading matter and Bible studies. If you cannot do the continued visiting once a week give the names to your pastor or some one who will continue to visit these interested souls. We should set a goal for atleast fifteen hours and five interested people's names for our ingathering this year besides the financial goal. A ribbon bookmark is to be given all Minute Members, I under- stand, who devote fifteen hours to actual soliciting and secure five names and addresses of[inquirers. Visit every home in your town, city, or county. Do not miss a home: that may be the place that will give, or where there is need for your message. Pray before you go. You can not take Jesus to men unless you have Him with you. Seek His presence, and thus we shall look forward to a soul-winning campaign this year. HOW TO PREPARE THE TERRITORY FOR HARVEST INGATHERING When the writer was invited to write a few paragraphs on this subject he inquired of a good brother how he thought the territory to be worked should be prepared. His answer was, "The best way I know to prepare the territory to be worked is on your knees." But since we are bidden to "work" as well as pray we will offer a few suggestions. The interest in preparing this territory should be kept up •from one Harvest Ingathering time to another. We should seek to form a definite acquaintance with as many places of business as possible so that when we call upon them they will know who we are and the approach will be entirely compatable and pleasant. A congenial acquaintance will contribute, perhaps more than anything else, the certainty of a contribution. Another thing very essential in the preparation of the territory is to see to it that it is understandingly mapped out so that a thorough work can be done. A good acquaintance with the territory including a fore-knowledge of those to be contacted will guard against much of the "hit and miss" Allen Walker. method of soliciting. OAKWOOD JUNIOR COLLEGE Never in the history of the colored work have there been the calls for trained workers as there are at the present time. We actually have more places SOUTHERN TIDINGS SOUTHERN UNION CONFERENCE Address: Decatur, Ga., General Delivery President, J. K. Jones; See'y-Treas. & Auditor, C. G.

In the broadening of our church and educational' activities, new fields of opportunity and service have opened to our people. A new emphasis on the necessity of giving our youth a Christian education is now being given throughout the land. To meet the needs of the present situation, Oakwood Junior College is offering the following courses of study: Liberal Arts, Ministerial, TeacherTraining, Bible Workers, College Preparatory. Forty-third Year For forty-two years Oakwood Junior College has been sending forth her students into the vineyard of service. Last year students were in attendance from 26 different states. Oakwood's forty-third year promises to be a large one. Already applications for admission are coming in. Rates Rates for the coming year remain the same as last year. Those desiring to work part of their way through -school should send in their application blank accompanied by the $25 deposit so that their cases might receive early consideration. Since work for students is somewhat limited, consideration will be given each student only when his application and deposit reach the Business Office. Jobs will be allocated to students according to the dates their applications and deposits are received. The general expense for the year to the college student (not including fees or books) is $234. This is quite low when compared with our other denominational schools. Work Plans There are several plans under which a student may enter. By use of Plan I a student works out $50 of his year's expenses. His monthly cash expense, after the $60 cash payment is made at the opening of school, amounts to approximately $19 per month for the remaining seven months. (The $60 cash payment at the opening of school takes care of the first and last month's expenses.) Plan la permits a student to work out $75 of his expenses. After the initial $60 payment, his monthly cash payments for the remaining seven months would be about $15.28 per month. By use of Plan II a student works out $100 of his expense. After the initial $60 payment, his monthly cash payments for the remaining seven months would amount to $12 per month. Under Plan III and Plan IV students can only take from one-fourth to one half school work. Some exceptionally brilliant students may take three-fourth's school work under Plan III wherein a student works out $134 of his expenses. After his initial payment, his monthly payments would amount to $7 or $8 per month. Only a very limited number of students can be received into the school under Plans III and IV. And they, too, must have the initial $60 cash payment and necessary cash for books. Students who are skilled workers or who have trades are given special consideration. We recognize that parents and guardians in' sending their children off to school send them to study. So we advise to enter your children under Plan I, la, or II. The Oakwood School Board is willing to do all it is humanly possible to help our youth obtain a Christian education. And we believe that these plans make it possible for our youth to obtain this type of education that not only fits for usefulness on earth but for an entrance into the earth made new.

President, It. I. Keate; Sedy-Treas. of Conferente, Clyde 0. Franz ALABAMA-MISSISSIPPI NEWS NOTES Elder Keate spent the week-end of August 8 at Florence, Alabama, organizing a new colored church at that place. This church has been raised up as the result of Elder Thomas Fountain's efforts of last summer and this year. A full report of this organization will appear in the next week's Tidings. This past week-end Brother Ashlock held a colporteur rally in the Meridian No. 2 church. He will spend August 15 and 16 with the Greenville No. 2 church holding a colporteur rally, and will follow the same program with the Jackson No. 2 -church August 22 and 23. As the result of the Meridian meeting five members of the church decided to enter the colporteur work. They will be part time colporteurs. It is hoped that as the result SOUTHERN TIDINGS Published weekly by Southern Junior College for the SOUTHERN UNION CONFERENCE of Seventh-day Adventists Collegedale, Tenn., U. S. A.

Brother Graves spent several days helping the Pensacola church in Harvest Ingathering. From there he goes to the north part of the Conference where he will assist several other churches in getting a good Harvest Ingathering start. Recently Brother Baldwin visited the Argo church in response to an appeal for a school. There has not been a school in Argo for some years. This request is for a home school. A similar request has come horn the believers at Hattiesburg, where several children will not have the opportunity of attending a church school. Brother Baldwin also states that three new schools will open this fall; namely, Montgomery, Dothan, and Meridian. SCHOOL OPENING DATE The date set for the opening of our church schools in the Southern Union is September 8. We are asking the church pastors and elders to take special note of this and begin planning with the school boards to have everything in readiness for the opening-date. Special attention should be given to the matter of text books, and where it is seen that new books will be needed they should be ordered at an early date. Text book lists for the elementary grades are being sent out to the church leaders, and these can be referred to in ascertaining the needs in the respective schools. Frequently a great deal of difficulty is experienced in getting these books, so to prevent a serious delay in the school program this should receive special attention. J. C. Baldwin. CAROLINA Address: P. O. Box 577, Charlotte, North Carolina President, J. L. Shuler; Sey-Treas. of Conference, F. R. Boggs. Make wills and legaclee to the Carolina Conference Association of Seventh-day Adventists, Inc. TWO SPECIAL DAYS "They helped every one his neighbor; and every one said to his brother, 'Be of good courage.' (Isa. 41: 6) This is the good spirit that ought to prevail in every church in the Carolina Conference and in all our relationships with each other. We greatly appreciate the splendid way that many of our faithful people in the churches have volunteered the use of their cars for Harvest Ingathering trips from year to year. We are glad for the missionary spirit that prompts them to use their cars to take our solicitors in the Harvest Ingathering work to raise money to win souls in the needy fields abroad. Many are glad for the privilege of thus using their cars for the Lord, and are always willing to help in every way they can. We recognize that there may be some in •the churches who have cars, but would not be able to furnish the gas and oil that would be required for some of the long, extended trips into outlying towns and cities. Therefore, the conference is asking that in each church, in the church service after Sabbath school on August 22 and September 26, an offering be taken for the local Harvest Ingathering auto expense. This money is to be retained in the local church treasury and upon order from the Church Board is to be used to help defray the expense of gas and oil for the long Harvest Ingathering trips into outlying territory in the case of those members who may not be in a position to furnish the gas and oil as a donation to the Lord's cause. We hope there will be a generous response on the part of our people in these two offerings. I. L. Shuler. EFFICIENCY In North America there are fifty-one Book and Bible Houses operating in the various conferences, and among these Carolina stands next to the top in the General Conference "Efficiency Score" as published in the annual report of the Publishing Department for 1935. Also, with a single exception, Carolina heads the list in the highest percentage of gross increase to net sales in North America. Our gross profit for the year is not highest in North America by far, but-at least is highest among the nine conferences served by the Southern Publishing Association. The Lord richly blessed our humble efforts in the year 1935, and mention should be made of the earnest and energetic efforts put forth constantly by our enthusiastic field secretary, Brother Atherly, and his loyal colporteurs, one and all, without whom this fine result could not have been achieved. Brother Boggs, looking after the receiving and filling of orders, has had a large share in the accomplishing of this fine record. Thank the Lord Carolina was able to do it. W. S. Mead. CAROLINA NEWS NOTES On Sunday night, August 9, thirty-nine persons came forward in Brother Winders' tent at Thomasville to sign cards to indicate that they had definitely decided to keep the Sabbath. We hope soon to baptize a nice large class there. Twelve were recent'y baptized as a ...result of Brother Bland's tent meeting in Columbia, and another nice class will be baptized soon. Elder Shuler preached at the High Point church on Sabbath morning, August 8, and at Brother Winders' tent in the afternoon of the same day. Brother Taylor opened a tent effort in Greenville on August 9. He is to be assisted in this effort by W. Travis Smith as musical director and tent master, and Mrs. M. Lucas as Bible worker. Elder Shuler spent Sabbath, August 15, with the Spartanburg church, SOUTHERN TIDINGS Elder Osterman opened a tent effort in Charleston for the colored people on Sunday night, August 16. Elder Shuler will preach at the Winston-Salem church at 11 o'clock on Sabbath morning, August 22, and will speak at Brother Winders' tent at 4 o'clock on the same day. We were glad to have Elder J. K. Jones, our new Union president, with us in our recent workers' meeting at Charlotte, and we were glad to have with us Eider Wm. Butler from the General Conference and Elder R. G. Strickland from the Union Conference. FLORIDA Address: Box 372, Orlando, Florida President, L. E. Lenheim Sec'y-Treas. of Conference, R. G. Bowen.

The prices will be $1.25 for the first night for a room (two people) and 75 cents per night for succeeding nights. Cots may be secured at a reasonable price. Arrangements can be made for the accommodation of single parties. Meals will be served in the Academy dining room. We are hoping for a large attendance at all of these meetings and we extend a welcome to all of our dear believers. The Tampa and Jacksonville meetings will be held according to t he above schedule and due announcement concerning the details of these meetings will be sent out to the churches nearest these places. Pray for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit at all of these meetings and plan to be present for your share of the blessing. Lewis E. Lenheim. OUR NEAREST MISSION NEIGHBOR The Thirteenth Sabbath Offering this quarter is to go to the Inter-American Division. This large mission field is the nearest to our own borders of any of the foreign mission fields. I trust that the cause of foreign missions will rest heavily upon our hearts and that our people will respond with a liberal Thirteenth Sabbath Offering in order that our near-by neighbor might receive the needed help for her heavy mission program. Many of our people are somewhat behind in their 40 cent-a-week quota which has been set by the Sabbath School Department. We shall have opportunity this coming thirteenth Sabbath to make up any deficit and bring in an overflow for foreign missions. Let us earnestly pray for the spirit of sacrifice that possessed the early pioneers of this message and heartily respond on the thirteenth Sabbath with an abundant offering for our nearest mission field neighbor,! the,' Inter-American Division. Lewis E. Lenheim. REGIONAL MEETINGS Orlando (white & colored) August 21-23 Tampa (white & colored) August 28-30 Jacksonville (white & colored) Sept. 4-6 There Will Be Bargains On Books The first service of the Orlando regional meeting will start Friday night at 7:45 in the tabernacle on the Forest Lake Academy grounds. All near-by churches are cordially invited to attend the regional meeting. The services will continue throughout Sabbath and Sunday. A full program is planned from the very beginning and many important things of interest will be presented to our people by interesting speakers and missionaries direct from the foreign fields. Rooms will be available in the dormitories, but it is very important that you reserve them by NOTICE TO CHURCH SCHOOL TEACHERS AND PUPILS IN FLORIDA The State Health Department is asking all teachers and pupils to be in the state at least two weeks before the opening day of school this fall. All of the church schools in Florida plan to open on Tuesday morning, September 8, which is the day following Labor Day. It is advisable, whenever possible, to have registration several days before the opening date in order that the necessary text books and supplies may be on hand for the beginning of school thus avoiding delay and loss of time. Every Seventh-day Adventist boy and girl in our conference should be enrolled in a church school this fall if they are to have a fair chance of building a character that will merit eternal life. Teachers, parents, and church officers should do some earnest recruiting for our own Christian schools during the next few weeks. In Volume 6, page 127, we have some definite counsel for today: "We are under solemn, sacred covenant to God to bring up our children for Him and not for the world; to teach them not to put their hands into the hand of the world, but to love and fear God, and to keep His commandments." In speaking of our church schools, the servant of. God further counsels us in Volume 6, page 217; "Let all share the expense. Let the church see that those who ought to receive its benefits are attending the school. Poor families should be assisted. We cannot call ourselves true missionaries if we neglect those at our very doors, who are at the most critical age, and who need our aid to secure knowledge and experience that will fit them for the service of God." We are earnestly praying that the results of this year in our schools will mean the salvation of many youthful souls. Too many parents have taken a chance on just one more year in the public school with the result that the boy or girl is lost to this • SOUTHERN TIDINGS message and eternal life. Where you send your boy this fall may decide where he will spend eternity. Kenneth A. Wright, Superintendent of Education. FLORIDA NEWS NOTES Elder F. C. Webster reports a baptism of seven people in the St. Petersburg church. We are always glad to see new believers baptized into the third angel's message. The Review and Herald can be secured for the small sum of $2 per year. This is a special offer and those of our people who are not now receiving the Review and Herald are earnestly requested to send their orders in at once. GEORGIA-CUMBERLAND Address: P. 0.

Make wills and legacies to the Georgia-Cumberland Conference Association of Seventh-day Adventists. THE DUTY OF THE MINISTER AND THE PEOPLE No. 2 "All through our ranks, individual talent has been sadly neglected. A few persons have been selected as spiritual burden bearers, and, the talent of other members has remained undeveloped. Many have grown weaker since their union with the church, because they have been practically prohibited from exercising their talents. The burden of church work should be distributed among its individual members so that each one may become an intelligent laborer for God. There is altogether too much unused force in our churches. There are a few who devise, plan, and work; but the great mass of the people do not lift their hands to do anything for fear of being repulsed, for fear that others will regard them as out of place. Many have willing hands and hearts, but they are discouraged from putting their energies into the work. They are criticized if they try to do anything, and finally allow their talents to lie dormant for fear of criticism, when if they were encouraged to use them the work would be advanced, and workers would be added to the force of missionaries. The wisdom to adapt ourselves to peculiar situations, the strength to act in time of emergency, are acquired by putting to use the talents the Lord has given us, and by gaining an experience through personal work. A few are selected to hold responsible positions, and the work is divided up among these brethren. Many more who ought to have an opportunity to develop into efficient workers for the Lord, ei.e left in the shadow. Many of those who stand in places of trust, cherish a spirit of caution, a fear that some move may be made which is not in perfect harmony with their own methods of labor. They require that every plan should reflect their own personality. They fear to trust another's 5 methods. And why are they not -to be trusted? Because they have not been educated; because their leaders have not drilled them as soldiers should be drilled. Scores of men should be prepared to spring into action at a moment's warning, should an emergency occur which demanded their help. Instead of this, the people go to church, listen to the sermon, pay their tithes, make their offerings, and do very little else. And why? Because the ministers do not open their plans to the people, soliciting the benefit of their advice and counsel in planning and their help in executing the plans that they have had a part in forming." H. E. Lysinger. THE SAVANNAH REGIONAL MEETING Those who are planning to attend the Savannah regional meeting should write Mrs. W. W. Douglass, 2216 Whitaker St., Savannah, Ga., immediately upon reading this notice and make known what you will want in the way of sleeping quarters. A number of rooms are being engaged in case they are needed and it would like to be known not later than Thursday afternoon, August 20, just how many are coming and what rooms will be needed. Upon arrival at Savannah go to the church, corner 35th and Whitaker streets and some one will be in the office as you enter the church and assist in locating you for the time you will be there. Please do not neglect this. Allen Walker. GEORGIA-CUMBERLAND NEWS NOTES Brother Deyo is in South Georgia at present helping colporteurs with their deliveries. Please remember them in your prayers that the Lord will bless them and give them success. In another week the church at Gainesville will be finished. The storm destroyed the old building and a new bungalow church has been erected. We are happy with the splendid way in which a number of our churches are getting under the Harvest Ingathering. Special mention should be made of Bristol, Johnson City, Savannah, Wolf Creek, Postell, Athens, and Greeneville. Our regional meeting at Knoxville was a real spiritual feast. We 'ook forward to the meetings in Macon and Savannah to be of real help to our people. The Knoxville No. 1 church has recently been painted inside, and it has made the church very beautiful. We are sending out a double postal card to all our isolated, and may we urge, brethren and sisters, that you please fill in the necessary information on this card and return it to the office at once. Please do not put it aside but do it immediately upon receipt of the card. This information is very important. Thank you for your cooperation.

SABBATH SCHOOL PROGRESS During the winter months of last year Brother Archa Dart, our Sabbath school secretary, conducted fifteen Sabbath school conventions. The object of these conventions was to instill in the hearts of our people greater faithfulness in the study of God's Word, in giving to missions through the Sabbath school, and in the attendance at Sabbath school. I am glad to report here the excellent progress in the various lines of Sabbath school work during the past year. July 1, last year our Sabbath school membership stood at 2,647, while July 1, this year our membership is 3,131, showing a net gain in our Sabbath school membership of 484. 359 more Honor Cards were issued for the first six months of this year than for the first six months of last year. 90 more ribbons for perfect yearly records were issued the first six months of this year than for the same period last year. Whenever attendance increases, usually the offerings increase. We are glad to report that we have received for the first six months of this year $8,006.26 as Sabbath school offerings, which is $1,073.69 more than for the same period last year. We are glad to report that 18 new branch Sabbath schools have been organized since January 1 of this year. Beginning October 1, our Sabbath school lessons take up the doctrines of our message. This presents an outstanding opportunity to every Seventh-day Adventist to present these lessons to neighbors and friends, after having studied them daily for one week. We want to urge our Sabbath school teachers and members, wherever possible, to organize branch Sabbath schools and Sunday schools, thus presenting the Sabbath school lessons on the doctrines of the message, and give our entire field a knowledge of the truth for this time. We solicit greater faithfulness than -ever in reaching the ideals of our Sabbath school. V. G. Anderson. NOTES FROM THE COVINGTON REGIONAL MEETING A profitable and pleasant series of meetings was held in Covington under the direction of General, Union, and Kentucky-Tennessee Conference leaders over the week-end of July 31 to August 2. Various departments of church work were taken up by the heads of the respective departments. The importance of church schools in the character formation of our youth was forcefully emphasized. The Sabbath school with its spiritual contact with young and old was discussed, making all feel happy that they were a part of this great soul-winning institution. The Harvest Ingathering in its various phases formed the basis of a very interesting discussion which brought real encouragement to all present as another campaign is being launched. The entire program, arranged by our Conference President, Elder V. G. Anderson, was filled with many helpful points which held the interest of our believers. We were glad to welcome visitors from the Frankfort, Ashland, and, Belcher churches, as well as friends from Ohio and West Virginia. We shall look forward to another meeting of this kind in the future and wish to express our appreciation to those who planned this gathering. J. E. All. KENTUCKY-TENNESSEE NEWS NOTES Encouraging reports are coming from every point in the field both concerning tent efforts and the Ingathering work. Elder A. J. Clark who is conducting an effort in the heart of Lexington, Kentucky, reports that fifteen have already signified their desire to obey the commandments of God. Elder W. W. White last week placed his 50 by 70 foot tent in a new location in Nashville and opened his effort with every seat filled. Within the past twelve months more than one hundred have been baptized in the Nashville district as the result of tent and hall efforts in cooperation with the church membership. The encouraging feature of the Harvest Ingathering work is that no one is even suggesting discouragement or "Put it off" or "It can't be done." On the other hand, in many places there are those who have already reached their goal as Minute Members before the work has started. From Covington Elder All reports, "We have several who have their $11.11. I solicited one man today who gave me the funds for one half minute or $5.60." Sister McCord, the church treasurer there, gives the names of J. S. Murchison, Mrs. N. Belew, Mrs. F. Hartloff, and Elder J. E. All as having reached their first Minute Member goal, while the church has turned in over $90 to date. From Memphis white church comes the treasurer's report showing $216.79 already raised while Elder J. W. Jones, pastor of the colored church in Memphis, writes, "You will be interested to know that our Ingathering is in full swing. We will have a good report by the first of the month." Elder Thomas Murphy, pastor of the Lexington colored church, has had so many calls for the Ingathering magazine that he has hardly been able to keep them in stock, and, the members there have already turned in over $60. Elder Garrett, our Home Missionary Secretary, reports that in one day four workers with whom he spent a field day each secured his Minute Member goal or more. f SOUTHERN. TIDINGS Recently Brother and Sister Alton A. Bringle who have had charge of the school and academy at Covington, Kentucky, were invited by the General Conference to connect with the work in Africa. We understand that their field of labor will be in the Angola district. Sister Eyelyn Hammond in writing concerning the magazine work in Louisville mentions this experience, "One man in a life insurance office has been buying the magazine regularly each month. The other day he stopped me and said, 'I want to tell you that I never read another magazine like that one. It is different; it is practical. It certainly is a good magazine and I want it every time.' ." Brother T. I rville Rush recently conducte a series of meetings at Dyersburg, Tennessee, a er which Elder Holman baptized two members at that place. The Memphis colored church is getting right behind the work of raising funds for the new. Riverside San tarium. Sister Crawford, the treasurer, reports $229.90 already raised, and the church is determined to keep on until the entire goal is reached. Those who have thought that to withhold from God is gain, will eventually experience His curse as the result of their robbery of the Lord.-" Testimonies" Vol. 6, p. 476. THE COLPORTEUR EVANGELISTS H.
