to 1% per cent of the salary of pastor and ministerial assistants for the current

then current conference year for the salary of the pastor and assistant pastor, 
if any, of each and every charge in the Conference, be apportioned to each charge, 
said sum to be remitted to the conference treasurer for payment of District Su- 
perintendents' salaries. 

3. THE BOARD OF CONFERENCE CLAIMANTS requests an apportionment of 
an amount equal to 14% of the salary of the pastor and all ministerial assistants. 



72 North Carolina Annual Conference 

4. MINISTER'S RETIREMENT FUND requests an appointment of an amount 
equal to 1% of the pastor's salary. 

The items above equal 21% per cent of pastor's salary. Based on 1949 salaries, 
the total raised will approximate $179,872.00. 

PART III 

1. ORPHANAGE: 

We recommend the apportionment to each charge of an amount equal to seven 
(7) per cent of the total money raised by the charge in the conference year 
1946-1947 as reported in our 1947 Journal, less the following five items: 

Statistical Table 2-A — Amount paid on Indebtedness including Principal and 
Interest. 

Statistical Table 2-A — Amount paid on Buildings and Improvements. 

Statistical Table 2-B — Amount paid Schools and Colleges. 

Statistical Table 2-B — Amount paid on Crusade for Christ. 

All special gifts for endowment purposes made either to the local church or 
the orphanage. 

All orphanage specials, except that raised by the Woman's Society of Chris- 
tian Service, are to be credited on the 7 per cent asking. 

We further recommend that in order to have the apportionments uniformly 
calculated that the business manager of the Orphanage have the calculations 
made for each charge, inform each charge of the amount, and furnish each 
District Superintendent with a report for his district. Further, that the business 
manager be authorized to notify each charge quarterly of is credits and balance 
of apportionment for the conference year. 

It is anticipated that exact payment of this apportionment will provide the 
Orphanage with $124,000.00. 

2. MINIMUM SALARY FUND (formerly called Sustentation Fund): 

We recommend the apportionment to each charge of 3 per cent of the 
total money raised as in paragraph 1. It is anticipated that approximate 
payment of this apportionment will be $53,130.00. 

3. HOSPITALS AND HOMES: FOR GOLDEN CROSS AND METHODIST 
RETIREMENT HOME. 

We recommend the apportionment to each charge of 2 per cent of the 
total money raised as in paragraph 1, or an amount equal to 2/7 of the amount 
cf the Orphanage apportionment to be remitted to the conference treasurer. 
The total proceeds of this apportionment to be divided equally and paid to 
treasurers of the Golden Cross Fund and Methodist Retirement Homes, Inc. 
(For the central home for aged in Durham.) Total apportionment, $17,710.00, 
for each cause. 

The local church is urged to observe Mother's Day and to apply the offering 
toward this twin fund, the total of the apportionment to be provided for by 
this or other means. 

4. COLLEGE SUSTAINING FUND: 

We recommend the apportionment to each charge of 3 per cent of the total 
money raised as in paragraph 1, or an amount equal to 3/7 of the amount 
of the Orphanage apportionment, to be remitted to the conference treasurer, 
the matter of distribution among our colleges to be left to the Board of Ed- 
ucation. 

It is anticipated that approximate payment of this apportionment will amount 
to $53,130.00. 

All payments on unpaid Methodist College Advance pledges which are col- 
lected after the 1950 Conference may be applied on this 3% apportionment. 

The total apportionments in Part III equal 15% of the total money raised as 
herein defined, and are estimated to total $265,680.00. 



Journal of Proceedings 73 

5. COLLEGES' CAPITAL FUNDS 

We request that the Board of Education and the Methodist College Foundation 
use the coming conference year to inform the people of the Conference concern- 
ing the facts and issues and needs involved in our Methodist program of Chris- 
tian higher education in the state; and that on the hasis of widespread discussion 
they formulate a long range program for Christian education at the college level 
which will command the support of the people. We recommend that any decision 
as to a special financial campaign for this purpose be deferred until the 1951 
session of the North Carolina Conference. Meanwhile, we recommend that the 
Conference endorse the efforts of the Methodist College Foundation to secure 
special individual gifts during this year. 

And we further recommend that any churches desiring to do so shall have the 
privilege of making gifts to our colleges during the coming conference year, 
with the understanding that any such gifts shall be credited to those churches in 
any financial campaign that may be approved subsequently by the Conference. 
6. CAMP DON-LEE BUILDING FUND 

We recommend that each pastoral charge accept a goal, toward the comple- 
tion of construction at Camp Don-Lee, of an amount equal to one-eighth of the 
acceptance of that charge for World Service and Conference Benevolences for the 
year 1948-1949. We further recommend that each pastoral charge complete its 
entire responsibility toward building Camp Don-Lee for this quadrennium by 
accepting as a goal for the quadrennium an amount equal to y 2 (one-half) their 
acceptance for World Service and Conference Benevolences for 1948-1949, with the 
option of paying the entire amount in one, two, three, or four years. We request 
the District Superintendents to submit this plan to each pastoral charge.

We authorize the conference treasurer to accept all Methodist College 
Advance Funds, which may be remitted to him until all pledges are paid.

FAIRMONT CHURCH, RALEIGH, AND COLLEGE PLACE CHURCH, GREENS- 
BORO:

in the report of the Conference Board of Education looking toward the establish- 
ment of a Methodist Student Center at Duke University.

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF MISSIONS AND CHURCH EXTENSION 

The missionary task of the church is to evangelize the world. This is clearly 
the responsibility Jesus laid upon the disciples when he said, "Go ye into all the 
world and preach the gospel to every creature." He itemized and re-emphasized 
that responsibility when he said "Ye shall be my witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea, 
Samaria, and unto the uttermost parts of the earth." We are glad to note the 
interest shown by many of the churches in accepting mission specials in the 
Advance for Christ and His church. But we realize that our larger vision of 
missionary activity around the world will be stimulated only by keeping the 
fires burning brightly in the hearts of our people and on the altars of our local 
churches. We rejoice, therefore, to note the splendid activity manifested in 
missionary evangelism throughout the bounds of our Conference. Under the 
guidance of Almighty God, we have had a great year. Some $51,000 have been 
contributed for this purpose during the past year. This is over and above our 
regular world service giving. 

The Conference, through this board, has contributed almost $20,000 to aid in 
constructing churches and parsonages; $4,000 to other mission causes; $31,000 to 
supplement pastors' salaries. We have received into the churches nearly 5,000 
members on profession of faith. 

We are deeply grateful for the generosity of people which has made possible 
the assistance the board has been able to render in various building programs, 
and we would urge those churches and parsonages which can meet their full 
financial obligations in building, to do so, thereby making it possible for this 
board to assist in purely mission projects. There has been a tendency on the part 
of some to feel they are entitled to help from the Board of Missions and Church 
Extension simply because they have been contributing to the fund through the 
years. But this is not in keeping with the real spirit of missions. There has been 
great activity in building through the year. Many churches and parsonages have 
been constructed. The board has been able to assist in the construction of seven 
new parsonages, and seventeen new churches. This is not to mention the large 
number which have financed their own projects. The Conference is now blessed 
with better parsonages and houses of worship than at any other time in its his- 
tory. For this we are grateful. 



Journal of Proceedings 77 

We are happy to report the establishment of three new church organizations. 
One in Goldsboro, one near Dunn, and the Wesley church in Henderson. The 
board is happy to have contributed liberally to each of these projects. They came 
into existence through the interest and activity of the St. Pauls Church, Golds- 
boro, the Divine Street Church, Dunn, and the City Road-White Memorial 
churches, Henderson. We commend these churches for their local missionary 
activity, and suggest that other pastors and churches explore the possibility of 
establishing new churches in their immediate territory. 

Our conference missionary secretary, Rev. Leon Russell, has again planned a 
series of missionary institutes for the early part of the year, and we bespeak the 
full co-operation of all our people. The dates are as follows: 

Durham, January 29; Rocky Mount, January 30; New Bern, January 30; Eliza- 
beth City, January 31; Wilmington, February 1; Fayetteville, February 2; Raleigh, 
February 2. 

We commend the Mission Study Book, "The Methodists of the World," by 
Bishop Ivan Lee Holt, and hope it will receive wide distribution throughout the 
Conference. The missionary secretaries of the various districts have done a good 
job and deserve the commendation and cooperation of pastors and churches alike. 

The board is glad to report that through the increased giving to the minimum 
salary fund it is possible to raise the salary level of our Conference. At the sug- 
gestion of the Commission on Town and Country, therefore, we recommend that 
the minimum salary scale for the ensuing year be as follows for those giving 
full-time service: 

Single men $2,200.00 

Married men without children 2,400.00 

Married men with children 2,600.00 

We recommend that the month of January be set aside as "Good Literature 
Month," and that proper emphasis be given to all the publications of our church, 
with special efforts to increase the number of subscribers of the N. C. Christian 
Advocate and World Outlook. 

We are especially happy to have had a part in the Youth Caravan to Germany 
during the past summer. We feel sure, from reports which have come to us from 
these young people, that this was a very worthwhile project in establishing better 
understanding and promoting the cause of Christ in the world. 

We recommend the re-election of Rev. Leon Russell as conference missionary 
secretary, and Revs. R. W. Bradshaw and M. T. Plyler to succeed themselves as 
members of the Board of Managers of the N. C. Pastors' School. 

As we view the situation, we have every reason to believe that the missionary 
zeal and activity of our Conference is at high tide. For this we are grateful to 
God. Let us devoutly pray that our spiritual temperature may keep pace with 
our material concern. 

A list of the appropriations, and a copy of the treasurer's report are attached 
hereto.

REPORT NO. 1— BOARD OF EDUCATION 

Our educational institutions express appreciation for the increased interest 
and support which the Conference is giving them. Still further increases are 
needed if they are to be enabled to maintain "educational respectability" and 
worthily represent The Methodist Church in North Carolina. 

Greensboro College: During the scholastic year, ending May 29, 1050, the con- 
struction of two new buildings was begun — library and science buildings. These, 
soon to be completed, will give the college two units most vital to effective 
teaching and will enable it to offer scholastic advantages never before available 
at Greensboro College. These will be furnished with modern equipment. Progress 
was made in obtaining additional funds for these and other structures necessary 
to complete the minimum building needs. Approximately $600,000 remain to be 
raised. 

A total of 361 students representing thirteen states and China composed the 
student body. North Carolina furnished 86 y 2 per cent of the total. Thirteen denom- 
inations were represented, Methodists leading with 77 per cent. 

The College has been authorized to amend its charter so as to increase the 
number of trustees from 18 to 24. 

The statistics for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1950, are as follows: Officers 
and teachers, 49; students enrolled, 361; value of property, $756,221.29 (not in- 
cluding two buildings under construction); endowment, $648,144.10; no indebt- 
edness. 

Additional revenue is greatly needed for operational purposes and for neces- 
sary additional buildings. 

Louisburg College: The statistics are: Officers and teachers, 24; students 
enrolled, 219; value of property (not including gymnasium), $449,601; endowment, 
$146,907; indebtedness, none. The gymnasium, the construction of which is almost 
completed, should be in use soon. 



Journal of Proceedings 87 

The number of students receiving financial assistance has greatly increased- 
The present enrollment shows that 41.187 of tne students are receiving financial 
assistance totaling $11,402.50. 

The faculty is now one of the best for some years. The salary scale is still 
below the present for the public school teachers of North Carolina, despite the 
fact that the present faculty and administrative staffs are receiving $5,498 more 
than they received in 1949-50. This sum now is $2,047 below the amount they 
would receive at a minimum as public school teachers of North Carolina. Indica- 
tions are that public school salaries in this State will be increased during the 
present session, and this would place the College much lower than the North 
Carolina scale. To meet the minimum salary to be adopted by the Southern Asso- 
ciation of Schools and Colleges the College will need $1,108 added to the present 
salaries of the staff. 

Because the rates of Louisburg College are kept at a minimum, the funds 
needed for financial assistance to worthy students and increases in salaries 
must come from some other source. The only sources available are private gifts 
and the Church. Private gifts for current support are difficult to obtain because 
the usual benefactor desires his gift to have some permanency. This leaves only 
the Church to support the current operations of the College. The amount needed 
for student aid, salary increases, and to bring salary to Southern Association 
minimum would be $18,008.50. 

Care has been taken of tne grounds and plant of the College. The cafeteria 
and apartment buildings have been painted on the exterior, and the interior of 
Franklin Building has been painted, part of it for the first time. 

The board of trustees has decided that the operation of the college farm is 
impratical, and is asking for permission to sell the farm. Permission is also 
requested for the granting of an easement to the Carolina Light and Power Com- 
pany across bottom land, -known as the Knight Property, owned by the College. 

High Point College: The enrollment for the year ending May 31, 1950, was as 
follows: Summer School, 498; Extension, 75; Regular Session, 748; total of dif- 
ferent enrollments, 1,321. Of the enrollment in the regular session, 93 per cent 
of the students were from North Carolina. Of this group, 47 per cent were Meth- 
odist students. Other figures are: Faculty members, 45; ministerial students, 40; 
children of ministers, 19; children from orphanages, 13; girls majoring in relig- 
ious education, 30; concessions to these groups, $7,719.71; value of land, buildings, 
and equipment, $933,031.51; endowment fund, $517,983.91; increase of $70,748.75 
during last year; long-term indebtedness, none; current payables, $21,856.29, a 
decrease during the year of $26,442.96. During the fiscal year the College operated 
at a net surplus of $21,552.89 compared with a net loss of $12,772.13 during the 
previous year. 

The College respectfully renews its request to the Conference to help make it 
possible, through increased appropriations, for it to be accredited by the South- 
ern Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. The Association has recently 
raised the minimum requirements above the present requirements to the point 
where the present appropriations from the Conferences plus 2% sustaining funds 
will not be adequate to make it possible for High Point College to qualify. The 
charter for the College has been amended so as to bring about a closer relation 
between the two conferences and the College. The main provisions in the amend- 
ments provide (1) that the College board of trustees hold and operate the College 
in trust for the two conferences and (2) that the two conferences have greater 
responsibility and authority in confirming the members of the board.

REPORT NO. 2— BOARD OF EDUCATION 

The board is glad to note that progress has been made in children's work, 
vacation church schools, and in leadership education. Increased attendance in the 
intermediate camps and youth assemblies has been gratifying: 638 were enrolled 
in the youth assemblies at Louisburg College and 738 intermediates attended Camp 
Don-Lee; 30,956 children were enrolled in vacation church schools; 77 leadership 
schools and classes were held during the year with an enrollment of 1,067; 3,615 
church school members joined the church on profession of faith. We have 762 
church schools with an enrollment of 113,983, an increase in enrollment over 
last year of 4,924. 

The young adult program and the new venture in family life education are 
meeting with encouraging response. 

We deeply appreciate the splendid work that has been done by the members 
of the staff during the past year. All of us have been deeply saddened by the 
death of our Executive Secretary, Rev. J. G. Phillips. During his tenure of service 
he gave himself without reserve to the cause of Christian education. The memory 
of his devotion will be a challenge to all of us to realize the ideal for which 
he labored so unceasingly. 

We pledge our cooperation to the new Executive Secretary, Rev. C. P. Morris, 
and all the members of his staff. 

Recommendations for the Year 1950-1951 

1. The continued emphasis upon the fourth Sunday as missionary day. 

2. Increased empht.sis upon leadership education. 

3. Acceptance of Camp Don-Lee apportionment by every church and payment 
as soon as possible. 

4. Christmas offering for Camp Don-Lee to be applied on apportionment. 

5. Observance of Race Relations Day the second Sunday in February or as 
near thereto as possible, with offering to go to Paine College.

90 North Carolina Annual Conference 

report no. 5— board of education 

Report of Sub-Committee on Leadership Education 

Recognizing that the preponderance of Christian education must take place 
in the local church and that the burden of leadership in the most crucial point of 
our church's program of education must fall upon officers and teachers in the 
local church, and being further cognizant of the fact that our Conference has 
lagged far behind in the matter of training leadership for church schools, we most 
urgently recommend the following program of leadership education: 

1. That a district committee of leadership education be established in each 
district, composed of the district directors of adult work, youth work, children's 
work, evangelism, and the missionary secretary, district lay leader, district sec- 
retary of the Woman's Society of Christian Service, and the district superin- 
tendent. The chairman of this committee, who is to be district director of general 
church work, shall be recommended by the Eexecutive Secretary of the Board of 
Education, and appointed by the district superintendent. 

(a) It is suggested that the district superintendent appoint these district 
directors of general church school work during the session of the Annual Con- 
ference and request them to convene the district committee before the district 
set-up meetings. 

(b) It shall be the responsibility of the district committee on leadership edu- 
cation to: 

(1) Plan an accredited leadership school in each sub-district. 

(2) Encourage each pastor and qualified persons in the district to become 
certified to teach at least one leadership course. 

3. Eucourage each local church board of education to develop an adequate 
program of discovering, enlisting, and training new workers. 

4. That a two-day seminar be held some time during the month of November 
for the training of district directors of leadership education and district super- 
intendents. The Executive Secretary of the Board of Education is requested to 
make the necessary arrangements.

REPORT OF THE WESLEY FOUNDATION COMMISSION 

Our first word is one of grief and sorrow. Last May Rev. J. G. Phillips, Execu- 
tive Secretary of the North Carolina Conference Board of Education, who has 
been a member and Secretary-Treasurer of our Commission since its organiza- 
tion, died under heart-breaking circumstances. We gratefully record our debt 
to him for his long and faithful service, and our prayerful sympathy for his 
wife and children. 

Our Commission has labored earnestly to carry on the work at the several 
units of the University of North Carolina, at Duke University, and at other col- 
leges in the state, with which we have been charged. We believe our work 
and the students concerned recognize the debt we all owe to the directors at the 
various Wesley Foundations. These directors have furnished extraordinarily 
good leadership. 

We have not had a regularly employed Director of Methodist Student Work 
since the resignation of Troy Barrett a year ago. A Student Conference was 
promoted and held under volunteer leadership, and was quite successful, this 
being held in April at West Market Street Church, Greensboro. We propose to 
continue this or a similar arrangement for the academic year 1950-51. 

We request an appropriation from the two conferences, and from each confer- 
ence, identical in amount with that asked for and received the conference year 
now closing. 

The Treasurer's report, together with an itemized list of proposed appropri- 
ations for 1950-51, is presented herewith. 

Our Commission wishes to assure the two supporting annual conferences 
of our earnest and continuing desire and will to serve both the conferences and 
the young Methodists in our colleges and universities. 

We trust that approval will be granted to the so-called "Five Dollar Plan," as 
set forth in our report to the North Carolina Conference last year, but not pre- 



Journal of Proceedings 1 1 



sented a year ago to the Western North Carolina Conference. The pertinent par- 
agraph is as follows: 

In order to provide more adequate support for student work at the insti- 
tutions where the Methodist program is supported by the Wesley Foundation 
Commission (University of North Carolina, North Carolina State College, 
Woman's College, Duke University, and East Carolina Teachers College), 
we recommend adoption of the "five dollar plan," which is already being 
operated successfully in several annual conferences. According to the plan 
each local church is asked to contribute from its budget, or other sources, 
an amount of $5.00 for each of its students attending one of the institutions 
named above. Funds would be sent directly to the treasurers of the respective 
Wesley Foundations at the state institutions, and to the treasurer of the 
Methodist Student Fellowship at Duke University. 
It is our earnest hope that the two supporting conferences will continue and 
in the future be able to increase and strengthen the program for our Methodist 
students in the colleges and universities of North Carolina. 
Respectfully submitted, 

W. A. STANBURY, Chairman 
C. S. HUBBARD, Vice-chairman 
JOHN W. CELL, Treasurer

J. A. STATON, Chairman 
JAMES F. COUSINS, Treasurer 
L. T. SINGLETON, Secretary 



REPORT NO. 2— BOARD OF CONFERENCE CLAIMANTS 

It gives us great pleasure to report that we are able to continue our annuity 
rate at $35.00 for the retired men and $24.50 for the widows. We wish to express 
our appreciation to Dr. J. W. Crichlow from the General Board of Pensions for 
his presence and great help in planning our work. 

The following claimants have died during the year: 

Rev H S. B. Thompson, Mrs. J. E Blalock, Rev B. H. Houston, Mrs M. Brad- 
shaw, Rev. L. B. Jones, Mrs. N. L. Seabolt, Mrs. M. D. Hix, Rev. W. J. Watson, 
Mrs. M. A. Smith, and Mrs. R. E. Pittman. Mrs. C. A. Johnson has remarried. 



102 North Carolina Annual Conference 

The books of the Treasurer of the Board of Conference Claimants and the 
Secretary-Treasurer of the Ministers' Retirement Fund have been audited by a 
certified accountant and his report is filed with this report. 

With this report the Secretary of the Board closes a term of twenty-five years. 
It has been a service of genuine pleasure and I retire with sincere regrets. Yet 
with a feeling of satisfaction that I have had a part in seeing this work grow 
from a mere pittance to the present sum. I wish for my successor the hearty 
support, both of the Board and the Conference at large. 

We nominate John M. Dozier, 2111 Ruffin St., Durham, N. C, as Secretary 
and Treasurer of the Ministers' Retirement Fund at a salary of $500.00. 
Respectfully submitted, 

J. A. STATON, Chairman 
JAMES F. COUSINS, Treasurer 
L. T. SINGLETON, Secretary 



REPORT NO. 3— BOARD OF CONFERENCE CLAIMANTS 

For the support of the superannuates, their wives and dependent children, 
your Board recommends that an amount equal to fourteen per cent of the salaries 
paid to all the pastors, and the clerical assistants who are members of the North 
Carolina Conference of The Methodist Church, be assessed against all charges 
of said Conference and be sent to the Conference Treasurer who shall admin- 
ister the same as provided in the Discipline. 

J. A. STATON, Chairman 
JAMES F. COUSINS, Treasurer 
L. T. SINGLETON, Secretary 



REPORT NO. 4 — BOARD OF CONFERENCE CLAIMANTS 
Amendment to the Ministers' Retirement Fund 

We recommend that the last sentence of section two (2) of the amendment 
starting on page 91 of the 1946 Conference Journal reading: "These dividends 
shall be invested and any income from the investment shall be applied to the Gen- 
eral Reserve Fund," be amended to read as follows: "These Reserve Dividends 
(now known as the Dividend Fund) shall be invested and any income from their 
investment and the investment of the General Reserve Fund shall be added to 
the current collections (now known as the Current Fund) and included in the 
balance available for crediting to members' accounts as dividends as provided 
for in the section referred to above in the 1946 Conference Journal.

Report of Treasurer — Board of Conference Claimants 

Mr. James F. Cousins, Treasurer 

N. C. Conference Board of Conference Claimants 

Durham, North Carolina 

Dear Mr. Cousins: 

In accordance with your instructions, we have checked the records of the 
Board of Conference Claimants for the period from November 1, 1949, through 
October 31, 1950. 

The balance shown in the checking account was verified by reconciliation of 
the statement furnished by the Fidelity Bank. All recorded receipts were traced 
into the depository and disbursements were verified by inspection of cancelled 
checks. 

Savings account and other investments were verified by inspection of the 
saving account and of the paid up share certificates. 



Journal of Proceedings 103 

Based upon the examination made, it is our opinion that the financial trans- 
actions of the Board of Conference Claimants for the year ended October 31, 1950,

108 North Carolina Annual Conference 

TREASURER'S REPORT MINISTERS' RETIREMENT FUND 

Mr. James F. Cousins, Treasurer 
Ministers' Retirement Fund 

Dear Mr. Cousins: 

We have made an examination of the Cash Receipts and Disbursements of the 
Ministers Retirement Fund for the Conference Year 1949-50, ending November 
30, 1950, and submit, herewith, our statement of receipts and disbursements for 
that period. 

All recorded cash receipts were traced into the bank account and all disburse- 
ments were verified by examination of cancelled checks. Cash in the Fidelity Bank, 
Durham, North Carolina, on November 30, 1950, was verified by reconciliation of 
the statement furnished by the bank. Investments in Building and Loan Stock 
and U. S. Savings Bonds were verified by inspection. First mortgage loans were 
verified by correspondence with the Church Treasurers. 

The attached statement showing payments to the Ministers' Retirement Fund 
by individuals an by charges was verified by a check to the individual accounts.

REPORT NO. 1— BOARD OF LAY ACTIVITIES 

During the past year, your Board of Lay Activities has recognized its obligation 
to the Advance for Christ and His Church as the special program of our great 
Methodist Church. The concept of eight million Methodists moving forward, slowly 
perhaps, yet with a deep-seated determination to press toward the goal, was 
been and is an inspiration. 

It has been our intention not to lessen the attention given any phase of 
the regular activities of the church. Thus we have continued to stress the respon- 
sibilities of true stewardship and the vital spiritual values to be attained by 
definite ordered tithing of income. 

Once again we can report a wide observance of Laymen's Day and, more 
important, we can report that very definite benefits from this program are 
beginning to show in other areas of the work of the church. Our annual Retreat 
was held at Louisburg College on June 17 and 18 with a record attendance. The 
Board of Lay Activities believes most strongly that wider information on the 



Journal of Proceedings 1 1 5 



various phases of the church program inevitably results in greater interest. 
We set our goals for the coming year: 

1. Continuing emphasis on the Advance for Christ and His Church with 
special care to be given to wider knowledge of our church organizations. 

2. Increasing the number of organized Methodist Men's Clubs. 

3. Every church on every charge in the Conference observing Laymen's Day. 

4. Continuation of efforts to reach the goal of not more than three churches 
on any one charge. 

5. Holding an Annual Conference-wide Laymen's Retreat and also District- 
wide Laymen's Retreat. 

6. Betterment of local church financing and adequate support and security 
for our ministers. 

Respectfully submitted,

REPORT NO. 1— BOARD OF HOSPITALS AND HOMES 

The chief business of the Board of Hospitals and Homes this year was admin- 
istering and expediting the revised Golden Cross policies and plans approved 
by the 1949 session of the North Carolina Conference. We recognize that Meth- 
odist Retirement Homes is an integral part of the interest of our board, and 
will endeavor to promote both Golden Cross and Methodist Retirement Homes 
in the year ahead. 

The Board met in business session four times during the year. One of 
the meetings (February) was held jointly with the District Golden Cross Com- 
mittees. All districts were represented by their chairmen, and four districts 
were in full attendance. Full understanding was reached relating to the work of 
the Board and the District Committee in making Golden Cross an effective instru- 
ment in aiding the needy sick. 

All pastors of the N. C. Conference were mailed personal copies of the Board 
of Hospitals and Homes' report adopted by the 1949 session of the Annual Con- 
ference. The Board hopes this will prove valuable as an additional source of 
information to the individual pastor. The Board also prepared standard Golden 
Cross approval application forms for use by the District Committees and pastors. 

Five thousand dollars was authorized withdrawn from surplus invested funds, 
that the program of Golden Cross be completed without curtailment this Con- 
ference year. 

Members of our board attended both the General and Jurisdictional sessions of 
the Board of Hospitals and Homes. 

Using the $600 authorized by the last Annual Conference, the board employed 
a summer chaplain to serve in Duke Hospital this year. This chaplain, E. J. 
Bauer, made 432 planned calls. Besides the direct value of these visits, the summer 
program taught us much concerning the spiritual and physical care of the sick, 
through a cooperative effort of minister and hospital. 



Journal of Proceedings 1 1 7 

Recommendations 

We recommend that Golden Cross policies approved by the 1949 session of this 
Annual Conference be continued. 

We further recommend that the board be authorized to appropriate $800 for 
its hospital chaplaincy program this coming year. This will enable us, with 
additional outside funds already secured, to place a year-round chaplaincy 
program in Duke Hospital. 

We note as a matter of information that our board is requesting the Commis- 
sion on World Service and Finance to recommend that the joint appropriation for 
Golden Cross and Methodist Retirement Homes for the coming year be set at 3% 
of the total money raised in the charge in the year 1946-47 (less the standard 
deductions) ; or 3/7 of the orphanage apportionment.

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF EVANGELISM 

"Our Church," being the second emphasis in the Advance for Christ and His 
Church, calls for a mighty Evangelistic Advance. It is now our responsibility as 
ministers and laymen to revive an interest in, and a concern for, the Christian- 
izing of the unsaved and the unchurched for whom we are responsible. We should 
experience a concern for the person who has not yet found Jesus Christ as per- 
sonal Saviour and Lord— refusing to be satisfied with transfering church mem- 
bers from one church to another, as important as that may be in many instances. 

If our church is to make an Evangelistic Advance, much preparation should 
be made through prayer and the faithful reading of the Scriptures. We have been 
too busy to pray and to prepare our hearts for a spiritual advance. Therefore, 



Journal of Proceedings 123 

too often our motives have not been spiritualized. Martin Luther wrote the fol- 
lowing in his Journal one morning: "1 have so much to do today that I shall not 
be able to get through it with less than three hours of prayer." Had this not been 
true of Martin Luther it would have been necessary for God to have found another 
man to lead in the Protestant Reformation. In those days it cost something to 
be a Christian. 

Your Board of Evangelism would like earnestly to request your cooperation 
in the following objectives during the conference year 1950-51. 

1. That we call our people to earnest prayer. Nothing less than this will 
make us worthy servants of Him of whom it was written: "When he saw the 
multitudes he was moved with compassion." Until we experience a like com- 
passion we will continue to make excuses for our lack of interest in evangelism. 

2. District Prayer Retreats for ministers as early in the conference year as 
District Superintendents and District Secretaries of Evangelism can arrange for 
them. We earnestly request that these retreats be limited to prayer, heart-search- 
ing and rededication. 

3. The months of January and February be set apart for religious surveys 
in an honest effort to locate and contact, in an effort to win to Christ and His 
Church, all the unchurched in those communities for which we are responsible. 

4. The month of March to be dedicated conscientiously to the reenlistment 
of all the inactive members of our churches. An inactive church member may 
be more important to the influence of the church than one who has not yet received 
the vows of church membership. They have been neglected for too long a time. 

5. Throughout the conference year each pastor is urged to lead and work with 
his people to employ that method, or those methods of evangelism which in his 
judgment, and in their judgment, have been and promise to be the most effective 
and fruitful in winning people for Christ and His Church. Our pastors are re- 
minded of their own personal responsibilities required by the 1948 edition of the 
Methodist Discipline, paragraphs 121 and 123. 

6. Cooperation with the General Board of Evangelism in the Camp Meeting 
at Lake Junaluska, June 24-July 8, 1951. 

7. We recommend that the District Directors of Evangelism be made regular 
members of the Conference Board of Evangelism. 

We recommend that Howard P. Powell be appointed as Conference Secretary 
of Evangelism, without salary. 

9. We pledge cooperation with the W. S. C. S. in all their spiritual objectives.

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF TEMPERANCE 

The North Carolina Methodist Conference, in session in Kinston, November 
4, 1950, reaffirms its opposition to the manufacture, sale and use of all alcoholic 
beverages and deplores the tragic fact that since the repeal of National Pro- 
hibition in 1933 and particularly since the legalization of liquor sales in certain 
areas in North Carolina in 1935, there has been a continuing increase in the sale 
of alcoholic beverages and there has been a continuing increase in drinking, 
drunkenness, and the many evils that are caused by liquor. 

This Conference reaffirms its endorsement of the Allied Church League, that 
has been organized by the churches of North Carolina for the purpose of com- 
batting the manufacture and sale of intoxicating liquors; and we urge all pastors 
and other church leaders and church members throughout our Conference to 
give full cooperation and support to the program and work of the Allied Church 
League. 

This Conference commends the helpful work that is being accomplished by 
Alcoholics Anonymous, and we urge our pastors and members to support that 
organization in the splendid work that it is accomplishing in the redemption and 
rehabilitation of many victims of strong drink. 

Though we believe strongly in the value of education and salvation in promot- 
ing sobriety and righteousness, we appreciate the need and value of appropriate 
legislation in our efforts to combat the evils of the liquor traffic. Consequently, 
this Conference urges the 1951 General Assembly of North Carolina to enact the 
following legislation: 

1. Since the citizens of our State voted overwhelmingly against liquor in 1908 
and also in 1933, and since, therefore, legislation of liquor sales in our State was 



Journal of Proceedings 125 

enacted contrary to the expressed will of our people, we urge the 1951 General 
Assembly to enact a statute to prohibit the manufacture and sale of intoxicating 
liquors throughout North Carolina; and, if the General Assembly be in doubt with 
respect to the wishes of the citizens of this State, we urge the 1951 General 
Assembly to enact a statute providing for a state-wide referendum on the issue 
of the manufacture and sale of intoxicating liquors in this State. 

2 Since the purpose of advertising any merchandise is to increase its sale 
and use, we urge the 1951 General Assembly to enact a statute to prohibit the 
advertisement of all alcoholic beverages in newspapers or other publications, 
published in North Carolina, and to prohibit such advertisements on billboards 
on the highways and in all other places in our State. 

3. Since a large majority of the counties in our State have demonstrated their 
opposition to the sale of intoxicating liquors, the 1951 General Assembly is urged 
to repeal the "gallon law" that legalizes and permits the shipment and transporta- 
tion of whiskey to the extent of one gallon into dry counties. As a simple matter 
of common decency and fair government, neither the State of North Carolina nor 
ihe United States Government should permit whiskey to be shipped or otherwise 
transported into counties in which the legal sal© of intoxicants is not permitted. 

4. As a means of improving instruction regarding the evils of alcoholic 
beverages, the 1951 General Assembly is urged to appropriate for the State 
Department of Public Instruction ample funds to provide for the employment of 
a competent person to supervise effective instruction in the public schools of the 
State regarding the evils of alcoholic beverages. 

5. Since motor vehicle accidents on our highways are increasing to alarming 
proportions and since a large percent of these highway accidents are caused 
by liquor drinking, the General Assembly is urged to enact drastic legislation 
against drunken driving. If a statute were enacted, requiring the imposition of 
a substantial prison sentence on every defendant found guilty of drunken 
driving, the enforcement of such legislation would decrease and almost stop 
completely this evil that is causing slaughter and death on our highways. 

In order to aid in the program of alcoholic education, we urge all pastors to 
preach often in behalf of total abstinence and we urge that the subject of tem- 
perance be given a prominent place in the program of every District Conference 
and in all other conferences and meetings of our church. Also we urge that study 
classes be conducted in our Sunday schools and in our church organizations; 
that literature and posters be obtained from our General Board of Temperance 
for use in Sunday schools and churches; that every Sunday school and church 
in our Conference observe Commitment Day that is promoted and sponsored each 
year by our General Board of Temperance; that each church have a temperance 
committee charged with the responsibility of promoting temperance education 
in their respective churches and Sunday schools; and that each District Super- 
intendent appoint a District Temperance Committee, charged with the responsi- 
bility of selecting, training, and making available suitable temperance speakers 
and charged with the responsibility of promoting temperance education and 
other work in their respective districts. 

This Conference appeals to all pastors and all church members that they make 
effective the opposition of The Methodist Church to this nefarious business. The 
liquor traffic would destroy the church, if it could; the church could destroy the 
liquor traffic, if it would. Hence, every person, who is interested in the church, 
should use his influence, his means, and his vote, against the liquor traffic. Any 
person, who drinks liquor, or votes to legalize liquor, or in any other manner 
supports the liquor traffic, should not consider himself fit or qualified to hold any 
office or occupy any place of leadership in The Methodist Church. Our pastors 
should not recommend or approve for membership on the board of stewards, 
or for service as an officer or teacher in the Sunday school, or for any other 
official position in the church, any person who manufactures, sells, advertises, 
buys, drinks, or votes for beer, wine, whiskey or any other alcoholic beverage. 
Our church cannot hope to win our battle against this vicious foe of humanity 



126 North Carolina Annual Conference 

by having in places of leadership persons who patronize this nefarious business. 
As individuals, we Methodists should abstain absolutely from the use of alcoholic 
beverages. As members of society, we should vote and work to outlaw the liquor 
traffic. The attitude and the practice of individuals should be total abstinence. 
The attitude and the policy of government should be absolute prohibition. And 
to the achievement of total abstinence and absolute prohibition, we appeal to all 
Methodists and all other citizens in our country.

REPORT NO. 1— COMMISSION ON TOWN AND COUNTRY WORK 

The Church is one body of believers in Jesus Christ seeking to proclaim His 
gospel to all people in every area of life. There is no conflict between the different 
parts of this body. When one part is weakened, the whole body is weakened, but 
when one part is strengthened the whole body is strengthened. To strengthen 
this body of Christ and to help it fulfill its mission, the Conference Commission 
on Town and Country Work has done the following: 

1. Meetings of the executive committee and of the whole commission have 
been held for the study of and planning the work of the commission. 

2. The J. M. Ormond Fund has been completed with an amount of $54,468.75 
with an accumulated amount of $2,250.60, making the total amount of June 30, 
1950, $56,715.15. The fund is in the hands of the Duke Divinity School and the 
terms and conditions for its proper usage have been agreed upon by the Commis- 
sion on Town and Country Work and the Divinity School. 

3. The commission is approving the minimum salary schedule of $2,200 for 
single ministers; $2,400 for married ministers without children, and $2,600 for 
ministers with one child or more, as recommended by the Board of Missions and 
Church Extension and also the increase in the percentage figure for the Minimum 
Salary Fund as recommended by the same board. 

4. For the promotion of Christian stewardship and for the strengthening of 
the financial resources of the town and country churches, the plans known as 
"The Lord's Acre" and the "Harvest Day Service" have been encouraged during 
the year. 

5. The Rural Parsonage Committee is continuing its efforts to improve the homes 
of the pastors. 

6. The commission has recommended to the Bishop and his cabinet that Garris 
Chapel and Piney Grove churches be taken from the Seven Springs Charge and 
that they constitute a special rural experimental charge, the purpose of which 
would be to relate the ministry of the church more closely to the farmers and to 
the needs of the farm population. 

7. The commission is making plans for a full representation of laymen and 
ministers from our conference to attend the National Methodist Town and Country 
Conference to be held in Sioux City, Iowa, July 21-23, 1951.

REPORT NO. 2— COMMISSION ON TOWN AND COUNTRY WORK 
The North Carolina Conference is predominantly a rural conference. It has 
been so from its beginning, and population trend studies indicate tha't it will 
be so for a long time to come. 



128 North Carolina Annual Conference 

The 1940 census showed that 77.7% of the population of the North Carolina 
Conference area was rural. Of this percentage 46.1% was white and 31.6% was 
non-white. The present population of our Conference area is 2,044,000. By 1980 it 
will probably be 2,500,000. Of the 2,500,000 total, 1,650,000 will be rural. Of the 
1,650,000 rural population as of 1980, 1,000,000 will be white and 650,000 non- 
white.* 

The Annual Conference of 1947 adopted a report which stated, "We recognize 
the fact that the rural areas are the fountain heads of resources in terms of lead- 
ership, population, religious and economic life, and that many of these areas are 
now suffering religious and cultural depletion. 

"This fact calls for an awakened church consciousness of the significance of 
the rural community, issuing in a growing statesmanship and strategy that will 
develop religious institutions adequate to create and conserve the religious and 
cultural values in rural community life. 

"The North Carolina Conference of The Methodist Church recognizes the basic 
significance of the rural church to the total life of the church, and recognizes the 
gradual decline in strength of the rural church, and regrets the inadequate policy 
heretofore pursued with reference to it. Therefore, the Conference does at this 
time commit itself to the policy of mobilizing its total resources to provide a min- 
istry of adequate scope and effectiveness to the rural people of our Conference 
area." 

In reference to the foregoing the following suggestions are hereby made: 

1. The circuit system which was once the strength of Methodism is now one 
of the major weaknesses. A great many strong churches now on circuits could 
be made stations, and many circuits should be divided. We must rapidly move to 
the time when no circuit has more than three churches. The preachers needed for 
such a program of church development can be secured. 

2. The minimum salary schedule as affecting areas of the rural church, while 
being in process of improvement, is yet inadequate. A minimum salary of $3,000 for 
married preachers with children, should be established within the next two years. 

3. There is something fundamentally wrong with the appointment system 
which, in the overall, works to the disadvantage of the rural church. 

4. In the new movement for church extension, the opportunities in open coun- 
try areas should not be overlooked. 

5. In view of the vast youth population in rural areas, a well planned and well 
executed conference evangelical rural youth program is an urgent need, as well 
as being a strategic opportunity. 

6. A great resource of conference lay leadership is to be found in the rural 
churches. The resource, generally speaking, is not being adequately developed. 

7. The North Carolina Conference area has a large farm tenant population. The 
percentage of white farm families who are tenants is 44.2%. In some counties 
this figure reaches 70%. An adequate appraisal of and approach to this field of 
church responsibility is long overdue.* 

8. The rural church would be greatly benefited by a proper integration of the 
promotional programs which originate from the general and conference boards 
and agencies. Campaigns and drives pile up on top of each other and thus lessen 
their effectiveness. 

9. The most urgent need we have, next to a real revival of vital religion, is for 
a movement to Christian unity and fellowship in the Conference. Too many oppor- 
tunities and responsibilities are being dissipated for the lack of unity. The rural 
church movement in the Conference does not seek to divide but desires to help unite 
and to help strengthen the church as a whole. 

10. The concept of conference leadership based upon the machine pattern 
is inadequate for the days of opportunity which are ahead. A more democratic 
pattern of leadership would be more efficient, and would serve to improve the 
spirit of unity in the Conference. 

11. The time has fully come when Protestant overlapping in rural communi- 
ties should be viewed as disgraceful and dissipative. It would be becoming for 



Journal of Proceedings 129 

the Methodists in our conference area to lead out in seeking a constructive solu- 
tion to this problem. A policy of trading out weak churches with other denomi- 
nations would be one possible approach. 

12. A spirit of conservation has long gripped our Conference. The opportuni- 
ties which are at hand call for a rapidly developing spirit of progressiveness. 

13. Governor Scott's rural road program is opening new doors of opportunity 
for the rural church. These opportunities should be recognized and analyzed, and 
utilized by the inauguration of a long range program of rural church planning on 
a conference-wide basis.

REPORT OF THE WORLD PEACE COMMITTEE 

That we live in a world fraught with unprecedented dangers no sane person 
would deny. That mounting tension, fear, misunderstanding, prejudice and hatred 
threaten to undermine peace between individuals and nations becomes increas- 
ingly apparent every day. It is clear now that powerful forces at work in the 
world today can easily plunge all mankind into the most devastating war in hu- 
man history. In the face of the cataclysmic and world-shaking events breaking 
all about us men generally feel their utter helplessness. 

Yet the Christian Church is not helpless. Christianity came into the world in 
an hour of crisis. It has done its greatest work when the light of civilization burned 
low. In this hour we call upon the church to give wise and courageous leadedship. 
It should proclaim with all the vigor and earnestness at its command that man- 
made measures — whether they be military, political or economic — can never bring 
peace to our troubled world; that there can be no peace until men know and 
follow the Prince of Peace. 

Christians believe that more things are wrought by prayer than this world 
dreams. Because your committee believes so strongly in prayers for peace, it begs 
to offer the following resolutions: First, that this Annual Conference respectfully 
requests the Bishop and his Cabinet to institute and set forth a great prayer crusade 
in every church in the Conference; secondly, that all churches in the North Caro- 
lina Conference be opened at eleven o'clock each Tuesday morning during the 
ensuing Conference year for prayers in the interest of world peace, for information, 
confession, repentance and rededication. If the 165,000 Methodists of this Confer- 
ence really get on their knees and carry the cause of peace to the throne of grace 
ihe hope for universal good will among men will be greatly strengthened. 

We are encouraged by the developing vigor and influence of the United Na- 
tions. We take heart in the fact that the United States continues to work 
through this world organization. We strongly urge the national administration to 
extend the policy developed in the recent Korean situation of allowing the United 
Nations to determine policy-making decisions and making our power available 
to implement those decisions. We urge the Congress to take the steps necessary 
to initiate the process of amending the charter of the United Nations to enable 
this organization to more effectively prevent aggression. 

Again, we support every effort to create friendship and goodwill among 
the people of the world through such agencies as the World Council of Churches, 
Crusade scholarships, youth caravans, missionary organizations and every other 
agency for human good. Moreover, we call upon every Christian to promote broth- 
erhood in the church, in the community and in the nation by practicing the 
principles of brotherhood and by using every effort possible to break down class,' 
racial and religious walls in our midst.

REPORT OF CONFERENCE COMMITTEE OF INVESTIGATION 

During the last three or four years preachers and laymen of the Conference 
have been the recipients of anonymous cards and letters. Our Bishop had hoped 
that the persons responsible for this would, out of their sense of the high calling 
of the Christian ministry and their love for the church, desist from this annoying 
practice; but in this he was to be disappointed. 

Bishop Peele has only recently requested and authorized the Committee of 
Investigation to proceed with an investigation in order to bring the persons 
responsible for the thing into the light where all things pertaining to the Gospel 
of Christ and His Church belong, and where good and true ministers do their 
work; and also that the shadow of suspicion might be lifted from this great 
oody of true men who have had no part in this thing. 

Accordingly, the committee has met and decided on its plan of procedure, 
and will conduct the investigation as early in the new conference year as practi- 
cable. This committee is elected by the Conference and is your agent. It, there- 
fore, has a right to ask and receive the wholehearted cooperation of every person 
connected with the Conference.

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON MOVING EXPENSES 

The committee has obtained certain facts but believes that further study 
will be necessary before it is prepared to make recommendations. We therefore 
request that the committee be continued for another year. 

Questionnaires have been sent to all pastors moving to new charges at the 
last Conference. Of these, 67% were returned. Approximately 25% of the preachers 
moved either in their own vehicles or in those loaned by private individuals. 
For the remainder an average of 3,597 pounds was moved an average of 108 



Journal of Proceedings 137 

miles at an average cost of $52.72. Those moving reported damage averaging 
$41. In only four cases did churches contribute to the expense of moving. The 
past four years approximately 65% of the moves have been made by preachers 
with salaries under $3,000.

REPORT OF SPECIAL COMMITTEE ON INSURANCE 

Your committee appointed to study group insurance and the adequate support 
of the ministry begs leave to report as follows: 

( 1 ) Provisions of the General Statutes of North Carolina make it impossible 
for the members of the Conference, as a group, to purchase life insurance and 
pay the premium therefor themselves; any group life insurance plan, therefore, 
will require the Conference either to pay the premium in full or to pay a substan 
tial part of the premium. 

(2) It does not appear feasible for any plan to be adopted of the Conference 
paying a part of the premium and the ministerial members contributing the 
remainder of the premium; therefore, only consideration should be given to a 
plan whereby the Conference would pay the entire premium for group life insur- 
ance on all ministerial members of the Conference. 

(3) All companies submitting proposals to the Committee have explained that 
the amount of the premium would be calculated on the same basic rate. 

(4) All companies submitting proposals ha\e explained that the premium 
for such group life insurance would be quoted only for one year at a time, with 
revision of the premium to be charged and collected being made annually on the 
basis of the number of deaths occurring in the preceding year among the group 
and on the attained ages of the various individual members of the group. It would 
appear therefore that the Conference could have no assurance that the premium 
to be paid for group insurance would remain constant in amount, but that the 
amount of the premium could fluctuate from year to year. The figure, $5,000, was 
mentioned as a possible amount of an initial premium to provide each ministerial 
member of the Conference $1,000 of group life insurance, but the Committee was 
cautioned that this figure might have to be adjusted upwards, dependent upon 
pertinent data as to ages of all the members of the group, etc. 

(5 1 Ministerial members of the Conference receive support, as a group, from 
the following sources: 

1 1 ) Local church salary and housing. 

(2) Local church travel allowance, in some cases. 

(3) Mission Board, Duke Fund, or Sustentation Fund— salary supplement 
to local church salaries, in some cases. 

(4) Conference Claimants Fund. 
( 5 1 Ministers' Retirement Fund. 
(6) Brotherhood Fund. 

It should be noted that the Brotherhood Fund functions somewhat like life 
insurance, in that payments are made in a lump sum shortly after death. 

It should be further noted that Conference Claimants' money also fills the 
function of certain insurance plans (annuities or deferred installments to widows 
and beneficiaries) by providing payments to widows and dependents of deceased 
ministerial members of the Conference. 

(6) The Methodist Church and the North Carolina Conference, in particular, 
has been making determined efforts recently to do two things in connection with 
ministerial support: first, is to assure every minister of a salary adequate to 



138 North Carolina Annual Conference 

take care of reasonable needs and desires; and secondly, to assure every minister 
that when his days of active work are over, he shall continue to receive an 
income. Recently, great strides in this Conference have been made with regard to 
Conference Claimants' income and it is to be hoped that nothing will deter or 
hinder this program. 

(7) Life insurance is purchased by a great many persons with one or two main 
goals: either to provide lump sum cash upon death or to provide annuity for the 
insured after retirement and for widows after the death of the insured. The kind 
and scope of insurance programs are of course widely varied, but guaranteed 
"protection" is basic. 

(8) Many ministerial members of the Conference have said that they would 
prefer the independence of action and choice which could be theirs to purchase 
as much or as little insurance as they deemed wise, or to secure "protection"' 
for their families through other means of saving, provided they earned reason- 
able salaries. 

In conclusion, your Committee recommends: 

(1) That every effort be made to maintain the Conference Brotherhood, not 
only to provide a means of ready and immediate cash to a bereaved family, but 
also for the deeply significant spiritual values implicit in the sharing of many 
persons with a single bereaved family; 

(2) That the Conference continue its splendid work of promoting greater sup- 
port of the Conference Claimants fund, to provide annuity "protection" for 
retired men and their families, both before and after death. 

(3) That the Conference do not embark upon a program of group life insurance. 

REPORT OF SPECIAL COMMITTEE ON TIME OF MEETING OF 
OUR CONFERENCE 

After much consideration, and investigation among members of the North 
Carolina Conference, and members of other annual conferences, which have 
changed their time of meeting; we recommend the proposed change of time for 
the North Carolina Conference. 

First: That the Conference adopt the policy of moving the Conference date 
forward two weeks each year until the desired date is reached. This would not 
bring about any drastic change or necessitate reshaping our church program. 

Second: That the Conference ask the Bishop to set the date for the 1951 session 
of the Conference on October 17, 1951, and in the event this conflicts with the 
session of the Virginia Annual Conference, this date be moved either one week 
before or after. 

Third: That the Conference for the year 1952 be moved up to Wednesday 
following the first Sunday in October. 

Fourth: That Wednesday, following the first Sunday in October, may be 
established as a permanent workable schedule, unless, otherwise considered, 
following the 1952 session of the Annual Conference. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ALLEN P. BRANTLEY 
R. G. DAWSON 
R. L. JEROME 
C. W. ROBBINS 

Note: A substitute report requesting that the Conference meet in June was 
adopted. 

Amendment to Substitute 

In order to permit time to thresh out the financial changes involved and to 
permit time for local churches to adjust their thinking and planning, it is re- 
quested that the Conference should meet in 1951 at the usual date and in 1952 at the 
new date. 



Journal of Proceedings 139 

report of the methodist board of publication, inc. 

In some respects, the report of the Methodist Board of Publication, Inc., for 
the fiscal year ending August 31, was one of the best in the history of the 
organization. During the year income from all sources totalled $94,574.83. Net 
profit, pending completion of the annual audit, was $10,398.62, an all-time record. 
Income from subscriptions was $25,008, or $2,407 over the previous year. Income 
from job work rose to $62,495.74, the largest in the history of the Piedmont Press. 

Yet there is another side to this picture. During recent years much of our 
printing equipment has become obsolete and inefficient. Therefore, the Board 
last year authorized the purchase of new equipment as finances permitted. During 
the year a new Kluge job press, a Baum folder and a new Miehle 29 press have 
been purchased at a total cost of $20,500. These additions to our equipment have 
already added to the efficiency of operation, enabling the Piedmont Press, which 
is operated by the Methodist Board of Publication, to increase its volume sub- 
stantially. Other equipment will be purchased as funds are available. 

Even though the circulation of the North Carolina Christian Advocate contin- 
ues to climb slowly, we can take small comfort when we realize that only about 
fifteen percent of the Methodist families in the state receive this periodical. At 
a time when the printed word is having its greatest influence, many seem con- 
tent to keep our church periodicals third-rate and ineffective. The North Caro- 
lina Christian Advocate occupies a strategic place in North Carolina Methodism. 
It can become a tremendous power for good. It can give telling support to every 
good cause of the church. It can play a large part in making this state distinctively 
Christian. But to do all this it needs the support of every pastor and lay official 
of North Carolina Methodism. The North Carolina Christian Advocate, unlike 
other agencies of the church, and for that matter unlike most other Conference 
organs, does not ask the Conference for funds to carry on its work. It only asks 
for the privilege of reaching Methodist homes with the printed word. It asks 
for, and has a right to expect, eveiw pastor and lay official to present the Advocate 
faithfully to the people. 

To reach more homes, the Board has authorized the editor and manager to 
offer the North Carolina Christian Advocate during the new Conference year for 
$1.50 a subscription to churches that will send the Advocate to every resident 
and active family. Moreover, the board requests the conferences to designate 
January, 1951, as Advocate Month, and that churches which do not adopt the 
every-family plan to accept a goal of seven subscribers for every 100 members 
for the new Conference year and strive diligently to reach that goal. 

During the year the Board purchased at a cost of $16,500 a house at 109 S. 
Tremont Drive, Greensboro, as a home for the editor. The board needs and will 
greatly appreciate contributions toward the liquidation of the indebtedness 
against this property. 

The terms of T. C. Hoyle, Sr., and John Hackney expire this year. The 
board at its annual meeting, September 12. nominated Mr. Hoyle and Mr. Hackney 
to succeed themselves, and requests their re-election for a five-year term by their 
respective Conferences. 

The following officers were re-elected: A. J. Hobbs, president; N. L. Eure, 
vice-president; T. C. Hoyle, Sr., secretary; and C. W. Robbins, editor and man- 
ager.

THE DUKE ENDOWMENT, 1949-1950 

The following appropriations have been made in the two Carolina Conferences 
for the conference year 1949-1950: 

There were 132 churches seeking aid from the Endowment and their total 
askings totaled more than $200,000. All applications seemed worthy, but it was 
impossible with the sum available for appropriation to help everyone. Those 
churches which find it impossible to care for their cost renew their applications.

Dear Sir: 

We have audited the books and financial records of Mr. C. A. Dillon, Treasurer 
of the North Carolina Conference, for the period beginning December 1, 1949, 
and ended November 30, 1950, and in connection therewith we examined and 
verified the Treasurer's annual report which was prepared by Mr. Haslin Simon,

In our opinion, this report, copy of which is enclosed herewith, correctly 
shows all receipts properly classified for the various causes during the period. 
The disbursements as shown were made in accordance with the apportionments 
for World Service and Conference Benevolences as recommended by the Com- 
mission on World Service and Finance, and the balances of unexpended funds 
at November 30, 1950, are correctly stated.

RESOLUTIONS 

AMBASSADOR TO THE VATICAN STATE 

Whereas from the beginning of this country Americans have believed in the 
separation of church and state, and 

Whereas it is plainly declared in the Constitution of the United States that 
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion," and this 
has been repeatedly and clearly interpreted by the Supreme Court to mean 
the complete separation of church and state; and 

Whereas it has been proposed that the United States government depart from 
the American tradition and law and establish an embassy at Vatican City and 
send a fully accredited ambassador with staff to the Vatican State, the head of 
which is the reigning Pope of the Roman Catholic Church ; and 

Whereas the President of the United States is reported to have said publicly 
that he is seriously giving consideration to the creation of such a mission; 

Now, therefore, be it resolved by the North Carolina Conference of the 
Methodist Church in yearly session at Kington, North Carolina, November 1, 1950: 

(1) That we adhere in the conviction strictly to the principle of the separa- 
tion of church and state set forth above; 

(2) That we believe the proposed embassy at Vatican City, which would 
recognize the head of the church as a sovereign governing state on equality with 
other national sovereignities, to be in clear violation of firmly established prin- 
ciples of American tradition and law, which places all religious organizations 
and faiths in equal standing before the law in relation to civil and governmental 
authority; 

(3) That we, therefore, respectfully urge upon the President of the United 
States and our Department of State in Washington the cogency of these principles 
held by the vast majority of American citizens and deeply embedded in con- 
stitutional law, and declare the hope that the proposed embassy will not be estab- 
lished and that no ambassador to the Vatican will be appointed; and 

(4) That copies of this resolution be sent to President Harry S. Truman, Vice- 
President Barkley, Honorable Dean Acheson, Secretary of State, and to the Sen- 
ators representing the State of North Carolina.

CHURCH PROPERTY 
Whereas the Bethel Methodist Church, Bladen Charge, has been discontinued 
and abandoned for several years; therefore, be it resolved, that the North Caro- 
lina Annual Conference authorize the sale of this property and that the proceeds 
realized therefrom be used by the trustees of the Bladen Charge for parsonage 
improvement of said charge.

church property 

Whereas the Old Hundred Church of the Laurel Hill Charge, Fayetteville 
District, has been discontinued, be it resolved, that the North Carolina Annual 
Conference authorize the sale of the property and that the proceeds realized 
be used by the trustees of the Laurel Hill Charge for parsonage improvement by 
said charge. 

WALTER C. BALL 
CHURCH PROPERTY 

Whereas a movement has been launched to erect a suitable marker to the 
memory of Bishop Asbury at the site of the old Rocky River Methodist Church, 
Fayetteville District, Albright township, Chatham County, North Carolina, and 

Whereas the plot of ground on which the log building was erected was deeded 
by one Isaac Cox, who was unable to sign his name but "his mark" was witnessed 
by Bishop Asbury, and 

Whereas an association has been organized, officers elected, and plans pro- 
posed for perpetuating the planting of the Methodist Church in this part of our 
state by Bishop Asbury as early as 1789, and 

Whereas it is desired and highly important that the association have official 
recognition by the North Carolina Conference, so as to give the movement 
official status, 

Now, therefore, be it resolved by the North Carolina Conference of the Meth- 
odist Church, in session assembled at Queen Street Methodist Church, Kinston, 
N. C. November 1, 1950, that this historical association be recognized by the 
North Carolina Conference and that the Conference cooperate with the said Fran- 
cis Asbury-Rocky River Association in promoting and directing the activities of 
the association through the First Methodist Church of Siler City and the Siler City 
Circuit. 

And be it further resolved, that the North Carolina Conference retains 
the title to and control of the aforesaid property and retains the right to change, 
reorganize or otherwise deal with the aforesaid association as the Conference 
may see fit, and that the title to the property remain with the Siler City Circuit 
Quarterly Conference. W. L. CLEGG 

CHURCH PROPERTY 

Be it resolved that Eureka Church on the Pasquotank Charge be discontinued 
and the property be placed in the hands of the Pasquotank Quarterly Conference.

ENDOWMENT FOR CLAIMANTS 

Whereas the North Carolina Conference, Southeastern Jurisdiction, The Meth- 
odist Church, is authorized and permitted under the pertinent provisions of the 
Discipline of The Methodist Church, pertinent parts being included in paragraph 
1G12 of such Discipline though not limited to such paragraph by reference herein, 
to establish and maintain investment funds the income from which shall be 
applied to the support of Conference Claimants; and whereas the North Caro- 
lina Conference in annual session assembled at Kinston, N. C, November 1-5, 
inclusive, deems it advisable that a permanent investment fund shall be estab- 
lished and hereafter maintained for the purpose of stabilizing and supporting 
the payments which shall hereafter be made by such Conference to Conference 
Claimants; and whereas it is deemed essential and necessary that such investment 
fund be established forthwith to provide for future payments and to insure that 
such future payments may be made equally and ratably to all Conference 
Claimants, 

BE IT NOW, TREREFORE. RESOLVED ( as follows: 

Section 1 — Sub-section (a) That an an annual aportionment be and the same

cf the cash salary (as defined by the Ministers' Retirement Fund regulations) of 
each person assigned by the Conference be made on each person and clerical 
member of the North Carolina Conference to be paid as hereinafter provided. 
Retired ministers and ministers serving without annuity excepted. 

Section 2— That the apportionments and the assessments hereinabove men- 
tioned shall be paid annually to the Treasurer of the Ministers' Retirement Fund

terly shall remit collections on account of such apportionments and assessments 
to the person, firm, or corporation directed by the Board of Trustees of the North 
Carolina Conference as hereinafter more fully provided. 

Sectoin 3 — That the Board of Trustees of the North Carolina Conference 
shall, after full investigation, select some corporation engaged in the business of 
administering trust estates to serve as Trustee of this fund and after such selec- 
tion shall enter into a written trust agreement with such selected institution, pro- 
viding in the trust agreement substantially the following features: 

Sub-section (a) All payments as to the Trustees shall be held and invested 
and the income therefrom added to the total amount of principal until such time 
as the total amount of principal and such accumulated income shall amount to 
a total of one million dollars or until payments have been made for a total of 
fifteen consecutive years, whichever event shall first occur, and that after the 
happening of either event the Trustee shall thereupon and thereafter annually 
remit to the Treasurer of the Conference Board of Trustees the net annual 
income derived from the trust fund for distribution as the Board of Conference 
Claimants of the North Carolina Conference shall determine and point out. In 
the event that the income is needed by the Board of Conference Claimants to 
meet the current rate or rate recommended by the Discipline whichever is

ference Claimants the amount required to make such payments up to the total 
income of the fund during the preceding year.

only the income from such trust fund to be spent and distributed for purposes 
and to persons as directed by the Board of Conference Claimants. 

Section 4 — The Executive Officers of the Board of Trustees of the North Caro- 
lina Conference are hereby authorized and directed for and on behalf of the 
North Carolina Conference to enter into the trust agreement with some Trustee 
selected as aforesaid and to execute in the name of the Conference all necessary 
documents in connection therewith, the details of such documents having been 
first approved by the Board of Trustees. 

Note: The above resolution was offered to Conference. The following substi- 
tute for it was adopted by the Conference: 

Be it resolved, That a committee, consisting of representatives of the 
Board of Conference Claimants, the Board of Retirement Homes, the Commission 
on World Service and Finance, and the Conference at large, be appointed to 
study the present efforts of the Conference to provide for retired ministers 
to the end that these efforts be concentrated on the establishment of a sound 
and integrated retirement program for the ministers of the Conference as speedily 
as possible. And that the recommendations of this committee be distributed to

ordination 

Be it resolved, That authorization be granted for ordination of Murrell Kelso 
Glover as Elder, if and when his ordination becomes necessary to his appoint- 
ment to the chaplaincy. 

BOARD OF MINISTERIAL TRAINING AND QUALIFICATIONS 

SPIRITUAL RETREAT 

In spite of contrary winds, there is evidence that the breezes of God's Spirit 
are blowing in the midst of our Conference. With the hope and prayer that these 
breezes may become the rushing of a mighty wind, producing Pentecostal results, 
we request Bishop Peele to consider calling the ministers of this body to a united 
Spiritual Retreat for heart-searching, self examination, prayer, and renewed con- 
secration. The details of this retreat, if held, would be left to Bishop Peele. 
Lest this request should represent no more than a casual intention, we ask 
that the ministers make it a concern of prayer and that discussion and vote on 
the matter be deferred until Saturday morning, immediately following the 
devotional service.

THANKS 

When we were "wooed" a year ago by our genial host to come to Kinston, 
we had some misgiving concerning the ability of the "wooer" to keep all his 
promises. At the close of the Annual Conference all doubts have been dissi- 
pated, and we are overwhelmingly convinced that he not only spoke in good faith 
but that there were many wonderful things not revealed. 

We want to express our appreciation to every person who has had any part 
in making this a great conference. From the time we arrived to the time of our 
departure, our every need has been met. We must mention in special appreci- 
ation our gracious host pastor, Dr. Henry I. Glass, and his efficient Director of 
Christian Education, Miss Susan Waller; J. J. Quinn, general chairman of the 
entertainment committee; Dr. B. B. Slaughter, District Superintendent; W. F. 
Somers of the Kinston Hotel; the women of the church and the other churches 
of this city for preparing and serving the delicious meals; the many homes of 
this city which have been opened to us with the gracious hospitality to be found 
only in a southern city; the excellent reporting by the Free Press; the use of 
the facilities of Radio Stations WFTC and WELS; to Boy Scout Troop No. 43; 
and to Mrs. H. H. Johnson, organist and choir director of this church, and the 
choirs she directs, for the inspirational music. Douglas Baker supplied the de- 
licious apples, which kept a dozen doctors away a day. 

We are indebted to our own greatly beloved Bishop W. W. Peele for his 
gracious and judicious guidance through this 1950 session of the North Carolina 
Conference, and to Bishop Richard C. Raines for his great and challenging ser- 
mons. The Conference program has been of the highest order because of the 
great and noble spirit of these two leaders and their assistants, Dr. Gaither P. 
Warfield, Dr. J. Wilson Critchlow, and Governor W. ,Kerr Scott. It has been 
indeed a great Conference and we shall be eternally indebted to the gracious 
people of Kinston. 

Respectfully submitted,

REV. H. S. B. THOMPSON 

By J. E. Pritchard 

Horatio Seymore Blair Thompson was born in Alamance County, 
N. C, February 29, 1868, and departed this life at his home in 
Seagrove, N. C, November 19, 1949. Had he lived a few more weeks 
he would have been 82 years old. He was the son of Sebert and 
Louzenia Blair Thompson of Alamance County. He attended school at 
Bethel Academy, High Point High School and Yadkin College. In 1893 
he was admitted on trial in the North Carolina Annual Conference of 
the former Methodist Protestant Church and was ordained an Elder 
in 1895. Brother Thompson was twice married. The first marriage was 
to Miss Maud Hanner, daughter of Rev. and Mrs. R. R. Hanner. In a 
few years she was claimed by death, leaving two small boys. On the 
ninth of July, 1902, Brother Thompson was united in marriage with 
Miss Bessie Lewallen, daughter of Zemri and Sara Gray Lewallen 
of near Asheboro. Surviving are his widow who lives at Seagrove, 
N. C, and the following children: Robert of Greenville, Lloyd of 
Durham, George of Roanoke Rapids, Mrs. C. I. Johnson of Asheboro, 
Alson of Baltimore, Md., Merle of Denver, Col., and Blair of Roanoke 
Rapids. Also surviving are 17 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren. 

Brother Thompson's active work was in the former Methodist Prot- 
estant Church, having retired in 1928. Charges served by him were: 
Littleton circuit, Spring church, Randolph, Richland, Stanley, Cleve- 
land, Saxapahaw and Randleman. Following his retirement he 
lived near Roanoke Rapids for a number of years, later moving to 
Seagrove. 

Funeral service were held in the Central Methodist Church in 
Asheboro on November 21. The services were under the direction of 
the pastor, Rev. Walter R. Kelly, assisted by Rev. J. A. Burgess, Dr. 
S. W. Taylor and the writer. In speaking of the deceased, Rev. J. A. 
Burgess said: "For several years I was his pastor. I never had a more 
regular attendant on the services nor a more attentive and helpful 
listener nor a larger contributor of his means according to his ability." 
In speaking of Brother Thompson's beliefs, Mr. Burgess said: "He 
believed in God. God was as real to him as the air he breathed or the 
water he drank or the solid earth on which he walked. Nor was his 
God a blind impersonal force. His God was the source of all life; He 
was personal, present and accessible. He believed also in Jesus Christ 
as the God man. He believed in Him as the one in whose unique 
personality the nature of God and the nature of man were perfectly 
blended. He believed in Him as God's gift to a lost world to save the 
world." 

Dr. S. W. Taylor, who had a long acquaintance with the deceased, 
has this to say: "My acquaintance with Brother H. S. B. Thompson 
began when we were school boys at Yadkin College. He was blessed 
with a strong body, an active mind and deep religious convictions. As 
a minister he was thoughtful, earnest and scriptural. He preached a 
high standard of Christian living and was intolerant toward wrong- 
doing, His faith in the Bible as the word of God was securely founded, 
and the gospel was to him the certain and only remedy for individual 
and social redemption. He believed in a regenerated heart and a 



Journal of Proceedings 161 



consecrated life and that both are the heritage of everyone through 
Jesus Christ. His religion and the assurance of the gospel were his 
anchor through all the vicissitudes of his long life and his comfort 
for his enfeebled old age. Brother Thompson made his contribution 
to his day and generation, and after long years of earnest service 
he passed on in the triumphs of Christian faith from the church 
militant to the church triumphant." 

His body was laid to rest in the Oaklawn cemetery in Asheboro to 
await the resurrection morn. 



H. S. B. THOMPSON 
By Mrs. H. S. B. Thompson 



Early Saturday morning, November 19, 1949, he whispered to me 
saying, "I'm going Home, I'm going Home, and I'm almost there now." 
I didn't realize at this time he was so near Home— the one we spoke 
of so often, our Heavenly Home. His going leaves me sad and lonely. 

For a precious one from me is gone, 
A voice I loved so much is stilled, 
A place is vacant in my home 
That never can be filled. 

The loneliness in my heart, 
Is all I can bear, 
I miss you each day, dear, 
Since God called you to His care. 

You are not dead — not lost, 
But gone on before, 
You live with me in memory 
And will forever more. 

God needed another angel, 
To worship before His throne, 
So, He looked down from Heaven 
And called my loved one Home. 

Time has past since that sad day, 
The one I loved was called away, 
God took you, it was His will, 
But your memory lingers still. 

More and more each day I miss you, dear, 
Friends may think the wound is healed, 
But they little know the sorrow 
That lives in my heart concealed. 

Yes, God took you Home, it was His will, 
And in my heart your memory liveth still, 
But only a star shines over the grave, 
Of the one I loved, and could not save.

He was twice married. His first marriage was to Josephine Virginia 
Callis of Matthews County, Virginia. She died October 21, 1935, at 
Bolton, N. C. His second marriage was to Lennie P. Jackson of 
Creswell, N. C. 

Brother Watson died in Rex Hospital, Raleigh, N. C, June 27, 1950. 
His funeral was conducted in the Providence Methodist Church, 
Grafton, York County, Virginia, June 29, 1950, by Rev. H. B. Porter, 
D. S., Raleigh District, assisted by Rev. M. H. Barton, pastor of the 
Providence church. Burial was in the family plot cemetery. 

Brother Watson was a Mason. He was a member of St. Patrick's 
Lodge No. 617, A. F. and A. M., Princeton, N. C. 

Brother Watson is survived by Lennie P. Watson, his wife; by three 
brothers, B. E. Watson, Grafton, Va.; C. T. Watson, Newport News, Va.; 
and L. H. Watson of Straits, N. C; by three sisters, Mrs. F. H. 
Ironmonger, Hampton, Va.; Mrs. R. Vance Moore, Richmond, Va.; and 
Mrs. H. T. Guyn, Charlotte, N. C. 

Space would hardly permit printing the many lovely and deserved 
things said of Brother Watson. The writer puts this item first: For 38 
years in the active ministry of the North Carolina Conference his 
District Superintendent answered "nothing against him." He would 
be pleased if he could hear these things said of him: "He was good to 
me"; "We knew him and loved him"; "I shall never forget his many 
kind favors"; "He lived a long and useful life"; "He was a lovable 
man and we thought well of him"; "We think of his devotion to his 
Master and the people he served." These are some of the beautiful 
remarks made by his many friends he made in his pastoral relations. 

We give here some excerpts from some ministers who knew him and 
loved him as a brother beloved. "A great spirit has gone to the 
higher clime." "He was a fine spirit and devoted to his work." "There 
will be many who will rise up and call him blessed." "A royal spirit 
has gone to his reward." He loved his people and they responded with 
love, cooperation, with understanding sympathy and fine appreciation. 
He received many kindnesses from his people. He loved all mankind, 
regardless of class or creed or color. He had faith in the gospel he 
preached, in the Christ he loved, in the church he served. He had faith 
in his fellowman, and believed in the worth and dignity of man. No 
one doubted the genuineness of his faith or ever questioned his devo- 
tion or loyalty to his church and to his Lord. 

So, as we glance over the long list of charges he served, we remind 
ourselves of not only what his labors meant to his churches but also 
of the larger city churches that received many members by transfer 
from his charges, and were made stronger and better thereby. 

"There was a genuineness in him that was perfectly radiant to me." 
' : I shall long cherish precious memories of him. He was one of my 



Journal of Proceedings 1 6.3 



best friends in the N. C. Conference." "He assisted me in two meetings 
and preached fine revival sermons." "He was a fine Christian gentle- 
man." 

These fine tributes tell much of Brother Watson as preacher, pastor, 
friend. I would, as one of his personal friends, like to add my personal 
testimony. He had exceptional gifts in the realm of evangelism. He 
preached with a real passion for the salvation of lost souls. He preach- 
ed with such clearness and conviction that he won a verdict, reaching 
young and old. He was not ashamed of the old gospel which is still 
the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth. His 
sermons were well thought out and made impressive with telling 
illustrations. 

In the realm of the pastoral relations he served in a wonderful way. 

I wish to mention here an item of interest to the Watson family 
and to the friends in the North Carolina Conference. Brother Watson's 
dear father served in the North Carolina Conference as a supply 
minister from 1904 to 1923. He died April 2, 1950. The father and son 
were much devoted and loyal, one to the other. Many times have I 
heard Brother Watson speak of his father in endearing terms. Father 
and son seemed to be proud of one another. Doubtless his son was in- 
spired to be a minister of the gospel by the example of the father who 
taught his son to do justice, love mercy and walk humbly with his 
God. 

Here follows the list of appoints he served: Straits, 1908-09; Colum- 
bia, 1909-10; Hatteras, 1910-11; Plymouth, 1911-14; Carver's Creek, 
1914-18; Jacksonville-Richlands, 1918-20; Gatesville, 1920-21; Tar 
River Circuit, 1921-23; Four Oaks, 1923-25; Bynum, 1925-26; Fayette- 
ville Circuit, 1926-27; Halifax, 1927-30; Burgaw, 1930-32; Carver's 
Creek, 1932-35; Roper, 1935-37; Stumpy Point, 1937-38; Pasquotank 
Circuit, 1938-41; Moncure Circuit, 1941-43; Princeton, 1943-46. 

Brother Watson's goodness inspired goodness in others; his greatness 
was the cause of greatness in many a young life; his religion was 
contagious. He lived and preached a winsome gospel. He loved to tell 
the old, old story. 

I will close this In Memoriam with the familiar words of a gospel 
hymn that sings the gospel of redemption that Brother W. J. Watson 
loved to preach: 

"I love to tell the story; 
'Tis pleasant to repeat 
What seems each time I tell, 
More wonderfully sweet. 

"I love to tell the story; 
For some have never heard 
The message of salvation 
From God's own holy word. 

"I love to tell the story; 
For those who know it best 
Seem hungering and thirsting 
To hear it like the rest. 

"And when, in scenes of glory 
I sing the new, new song, 
'Twill be the old, old story 
That I have loved so long."

LLOYD BAUM JONES 
By E. L. Hillman 

Lloyd Baum Jones was born in Camden County on June 4, 1878, 
the son of John Kight Jones and Mary Ellen Forbes Jones. The home 
of John Jones was one of dignity and piety, and of high ethical and 
moral standards. Visiting preachers were often entertained here, and 
from this home three sons were given to the Methodist ministry, 
John C. William F., and Lloyd B. 

Lloyd B. Jones attended Trinity Park School and Drew Seminary. 
He traveled extensively in this country and abroad, and was a keen 
observer, always interested in the life and customs of people. He was 
admitted into the North Carolina Conference in 1905 at Wilson and 
served the following appointments: Hatteras, Plymouth, Central 
(Raleigh), Morehead City, Tarboro, Belhaven, Nashville, Roanoke 
Rapids, Sanford, Greenville, Hamlet, Weldon District, Rocky Mount 
District, Wilmington District, Oxford, Washington, City Road (Eliza- 
beth City). After serving for 35 years he was retired in 1941 because of 
ill health. 

Lloyd Jones was happily married to Elizabeth (Betty) Mayo on 
June 30, 1914, and theirs was a happy Christian home, characterized 
by warm hospitality and devoted companionship. To this union were 
born two daughters: Lily Mayo, now Mrs. William V. McBride, Jonlin, 
Missouri, and Annie Bryan, now Mrs. W. Eugene Harrington of Wash- 
ington, N. C. 

It is difficult to put into words the traits of a good man, but those 
who knew L. B. Jones best loved him for his high standards of 
thought and conduct. Nothing cheap or little entered into his life. 
He was extremely sensitive about the influence that a Christian could 
have, and jealously guarded his words and conduct. He took his call 
to the ministry seriously, and was diligent in the preparation of his 
sermons. He was deeply sympathetic and suffered in the sorrows and 
heartaches of the people of his parish. 

His love of fun and his keen sense of humor endeared him to a 
host of friends. Ever genial and kindly, he was loved and respected 
wherever he lived. He was a devoted husband and father, and family 
ties and affection were unusually strong with him. 

After an invalidism that lasted two years he went to his heavenly 
reward on May 26, 1950. Funeral services were conducted by Dr. 
T. M. Grant and Dr. A. J. Hobbs, and his body was laid to rest in the 
cemetery in Rocky Mount, N. C. 



BENJAMIN HERRIOT HOUSTON 
By H. P. Powell 



Kind and comforting words, however tenderly and sympathetically 
they may be spoken or written, fail to convey all that one feels deep 
in his or her heart at the time of a great loss. At such a time it chal- 
lenges all the faith one possesses to believe that one so devoted to the 
ministry of Jesus Christ should be limited in his years of service. 
Yet, even the Master Mimself was an example of what one may do not 
by the length of his ministry but rather by the quality of his service. 

Brother Houston was born in Brunswick, Georgia, November 27, 
1890. At the age of twelve he moved to Wilmington, N. C. Graduating 
from the Wilmington High School he entered Duke University. His 
graduate work was done in the Candler School of Theology of Emory 



Journal of Proceedings 1 65 



University from which he received the B.D. degree in 1928. While at 
Duke University Mr. Houston was a star basketball player, his team 
winning the Southern championship. He was also a member of the 
Sigma Chi Fraternity. 

Early in his ministry Mr. Houston went to Brazil as a missionary 
of The Methodist Church. Having been active in Youth Work, a 
member of the Board of Stewards and Treasurer of Grace Methodist 
Church, Wilmington, N. C, this church sponsored him as a young 
missionary. 

In addition to his language study in Brazil in preparation for his 
work, he was appointed Athletic Director in Granberry College, an 
outstanding school for boys of The Methodist Church in Juiz de Fora. 
His work in this school was unique and meritorious — winning for him 
the confidence and respect of the boys, all of which he used to encour- 
age high moral standards. This work spread to Rio and other cities, 
and intercollegiate athletics became the rule throughout the country. 

Mr. Houston married the former Laura Crump of Wilmington, who 
survives, together with three children: Laurita Houston isariow of 
Alfred University, Alfred, N. Y., who was born in Brazil; Ben, Jr., of 
the Dental School of the Medical College of Virginia at Richmond; and 
Bob of Davidson College; and one grandchild. Also two sisters and 
two brothers: Mrs. M. H. Cromartie of Raleigh, and Mrs. A. E. Shooter, 
and A. P. and R. M. Houston of Wilmington. 

Due to an injury the family physician advised that Mrs. Houston 
should not return to Brazil with her husband; therefore Mr. Houston 
again became a member of the North Carolina Conference. Among his 
more recent pastorates were Morehead City, Centenary Church, 
Smithfield and Weldon, where he was pastor at the time of his deathi 
being in his second year. 

Brother Houston was a faithful and loyal Mason — holding thirty-two 
degrees in that organization. He was Past Master, member of the Blue 
Lodge, Scottish Rite, a Shriner and Past Worthy Patron of the Eastern 
Star. Interested in all civic progress, particularly in the establishment 
end enlargement of libraries, much of this work was done through his 
leadership in Boy Scout work and the Kiwanis Clubs. He was a 
veteran of World War I and chaplain of the American Legion. 

Funeral services were held in the Methodist Church at Weldon, at 
2:00 o'clock in the afternoon of Friday, March 17, 1950. His District 
Superintendent, Dr. A. J. Hobbs, was assisted in the service by Dr. 
M. T. Plyler of Durham, who was Mr. Houston's pastor at the time of 
his call to Christian service; Dr. W. A. Stanbury of Gastonia, who 
officiated at the marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Houston, being their pastor 
at the time they sailed for Brazil; and the writer. Interment was in 
Riverside Park, Smithfield, with Rev. Hiram K. King, pastor of Cen- 
tenary church, in charge. Characteristic of the fine spirit of Mr. 
Houston, the family earnestly requested that no flowers be sent. 
Instead, it was suggested that all expressions of sympathy and comfort 
be directed to the church to which he gave his life as a minister. 

As a friend, husband, father, minister and humble servant of the 
Saviour, he will be remembered tenderly and appreciated for his 
undying influence and usefulness. A brother minister of his said about 
him as the end drew near, "He is still able to talk and to smile." One 
cannot imagine Ben Houston unable or unwilling to smile, for it was 
in his heart to smile, to love and to help. To those who kept close to 
him during his long illness he continued to witness with patience and 
and uncomplaining love to the presence of the Spirit of the Christ 
within his heart. It was thus that he preached many of his most 
effective sermons. 



166 North Carolina Annual Conference 



Meditation upon the life he lived, the good he did and the Christ 
whom he loved so devotedly and served so unselfishly, it becomes 
reasonable to believe that the hymn-writer was writing for us in the 
following lines: 

"Be still, my soul: the hour is hastening on 
When we shall be forever with the Lord, 
When disappointment, grief, and fears are gone, 
Sorrow forgot, love's purest joys restored. 
Be still, my soul: when change and tears are past, 
All safe and blessed we shall meet at last." 



JAMES G. PHILLIPS 
By Edgar B. Fisher 



For more than twenty years some of us in North Carolina had the 
good fortune to have the friendship of a choice spirit, namely, James 
G. Phillips. Words seem inadequate to portray and do justice to the 
life of the one about whom we now think. 

James G. Phillips was born in Licking, Texas County, Missouri, on 
July 22, 1900, the son of Rev. Oman Henry Phillips and Laura Ann 
Hudgins Phillips, of the Missouri Conference. "Jim," as he was affec- 
tionately known by his friends, passed away on the evening of May 25, 
1950, having lived a life of distinguished Christian usefulness. He and 
I had been closely associated through the years. "To know him was 
the love him." He was admitted into the Methodist ministry in 1921, 
was ordained deacon in 1923, was ordained elder in 1927, and at the 
time of his death was in his twenty-ninth year of service as a Method- 
ist minister. He did his undergraduate work at Central College, 
Missouri, where he received the Bachelor of Arts degree in 1923. For 
two years he was pastor of the Prairie Hill Charge in Missouri. He 
was a student at Southern Methodist University, Dallas, Texas, for two 
years. In 1925 he came to Chapel Hill, North Carolina, as student 
pastor, remaining in that capacity for four years. During this time 
he studied in the Duke University Divinity School, Durham, North 
Carolina, and received the Bachelor of Divinity degree in June, 1929. 
His other pastorates included: Pikeville-Elm Street Charge, 1929- 
1932; Hookerton, 1932-1936; Louisburg, 1936-1940 (teaching Bible at 
Louisburg College in addition to his duties as pastor of Louisburg 
Methodist Church); and Bethel, 1940-43. On December 1, 1943, he 
was elected Executive Secretary of the North Carolina Conference 
Board of Education, which position he served so effectively until his 
death on May 25 of this year. Before becoming Executive Secretary, 
he served as Secretary of the North Carolina Conference Board of 
Education for a number of years in addition to his duties as pastor. 

He is survived by his wife, Mary Elizabeth Heath Phillips, whom 
he married June 14, 1929, and by three children: Elizabeth Lee (Betty 
Lee), Jane Louise, and (Bill) William Hart Phillips. 

I have known "Jim" so well through the years as one who was a 
devoted servant of God. He was deeply consecrated and untiring in 
his efforts to succeed in advancing the cause of Christ. Many were led 
to the Master through his ministry, and the spiritual zeal of large 
numbers quickened greatly because of his influence. He was diligent 
in the pursuit of duty, never considering any personal cost too great to 
develop the work in which he was engaged. His noble life will con- 
tinue to be a wonderful influence for good through the years. "Bless- 
ed are the dead who die in the Lord; ther works do follow them." His 



Journal of Proceedings 167 



ministry was effective, especially in the cause of Christian education. 
He was a member of the faculty in many assemblies for young people 
at Louisburg College, and he did splendid work in directing the 
youth program of our Conference. Much of the success of the work 
accomplished at Camp Don-Lee, a camp especially designed to pro- 
mote Christian youth work in our Conference, will be due directly and 
indirectly to his unflagging zeal in the development of this project. 
Night and day he worked without complaint. As we think of the 
passing of our friend, while apparently only in the prime of life, we 
are reminded of the words of an unknown poet: 

"Some workers quickly do their tasks 

Of service and of love; 
So their promotion early comes 
To higher work above." 

His funeral was conducted in Trinity Methodist Church, Durham, 
N. C, on the morning of May 27, by three of his co-workers in the 
ministry: D. D. Holt, Allen P. Brantley, and Edgar B. Fisher. Interment 
followed in Maplewood Cemetery, Annex B, in Durham. 

"Jim" was a devoted husband and father, a sincere Christian, fully 
committed to the work of the Lord. With the Apostle Paul of old, as 
he approached life's earthly end, he could say: "I have fought a good 
fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth 
there is paid up for me a crown of righteousness." 



MRS. P. M. LOCKLEAR 
By L. E. Blackburn 

"I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept 
the faith. . ." These words from the Apostle Paul to young Timothy 
describe the earthly life of Mrs. P. M. Locklear. 

Mrs. P. M. Locklear (nee Mary Catherine Hunt) was born January 
27, 1879, near Rowland, N. C. and slipped away from this earthly life 
in the earlv morning hours of January 19. 1950. 

In June 1896. she became the bride of the late Rev. P. M. Locklear, 
a member of the Blue Ridge Conference of the Methodist Episcopal 
Church. Mrs. Locklear was a devoted mother of twelve children, Mrs. 
Foster Thompson, Mrs. Flowers Sampson, Mrs. W. E. Loyd, Mrs. 
Stacy Locklear, Osborne Locklear. P. M. Locklear, Jr., Bryson Lock- 
lear. Burrell Locklear. Sanford Locklear, and Dewey Locklear, all 
of Pembroke, N. C; Mrs. J. D. Berkheimer of Clayton, N. J., and 
Mrs. Charles Gordon of Philadelphia, Pa. 

"Miss Mary Catherine" as she was affectionately called by all who 
knew her, professed her allegiance to her Christ early in life. She 
was a charter member of the First Methodist Church in Pembroke, 
having transferred her membership from New Bethel, December 17, 
1922. Her membership remained at First Church until her death. She 
loved her church and her Master. She gave of her presence, her gifts, 
her prayers and service to the building of the Kingdom of God. She 
was not able to attend regularly to the services of worship during 
the latter months of her life; however her spirit and prayers were 
felt. It was an inspiration and a source of peace and strength to visit 
with her in her home, and to hear her testimony of following in the 
footsteps of Jesus, and to feel the warmth of her love for and trust in 
God. 

Her funeral was conducted from First Methodist Church, Pembroke, 
bv her pastor, Rev. Linwood E. Blackburn, assisted by Rev. D. F. 
Lowry, Rev. J. W. Smith, and Rev. Venus Brooks. Her body was laid 
to rest by the side of her husband in the cemetery at Prospect church. 

"The Lord God Omnipotent reigneth still, and death shall be 
swallowed up into victory."

MRS. JOHN EDWARD BLALOCK 

By B. T. Hurley 

After a life of faithful and devoted service to her family, to her 
church, and to all who came within the sphere of her Christian 
influence, the gentle and lovable spirit of Mrs. Nancy Lentz Blalock 
returned to God who gave it at the home of her daughter, Mrs. John 
G. Hughes, Jr., Parkton, N. C, January 26, 1950. The funeral service 
was held at the home of her daughter in Parkton by her pastor, Rev. 
I. J. Strawbridge, assisted by Rev. W. B. Cotton, former pastor, and by 
Rev. W. A. Brown, pastor of the Parkton Presbyterian Church. 
Interment was in the cemetery at Fairmont, N. C, where she was 
laid to rest by the side of her husband, Rev. John E. Blalock, who 
died while he was pastor of Fairmont Methodist Church, May 25, 
1938. Anticipating that the inevitable call to depart this life was not 
far distant, some time prior to her last illness she made detailed 
preparations for her funeral. We have no doubt but that she had made 
sufficient preparation for the great adventure in advance of her 
departure. Evidently she had in mind the nature of the voyage she 
was soon to take and the certainty of safely reaching the other side 
when she requested that Tennyson's "Crossing the Bar" be read at 
her funeral. 

"Sunset and evening star, 

And one clear call for me! 



I hope to see my Pilot face to face 
When I have crossed the bar." 

Mrs. Blalock, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Luther A. Lentz, was 
born in Stanly County, N. C, September 7, 1885. She had three 
brothers and six sisters, namely: J. C. Lentz, of Durham; DeVere 
Lentz, of Asheville; L. A. Lentz, Jr., of Raleigh; Mrs. J. W. Bradley, 
Cary, wife of Rev. J. W. Bradley, retired member of the North Caro- 
lina Conference; Mrs. Jessie Lanier, of Norwood; Mrs. Charlie Ben- 
nett, of High Point; Mrs. Ollie Bennett, of Fayetteville; Mrs. John K. 
McNeill, of Raeford; Mrs. Lillie Thomas, deceased. Mrs. Blalock grew 
up in the church and united with it in early life. It was an essential 
part of her life. She received her education in the public schools of her 
county, and later attended Brevard Industrial Institute, now Brevard 
College. For some time prior to her marrige she was a successful 
teacher in the public schools of the state. 

But her career as a school teacher came to an end when a young 
Methodist preacher persuaded her to share with him the vicissitudes 
of his calling. So on June 1, 1911, Nancy Lentz, at her home in Rae- 
ford, married Rev. John E. Blalock, who was serving his first pastorate 
in Yanceyville. With happy hearts these two young servants of God 
set forth upon what proved to be a successful career. From Yancey- 
ville to Moyock, from Moyock to Milton, from Milton to Hillsboro, 
from Hillsboro to Benson, from Benson to Parkton, from Parkton to 
Jonesboro, from Jonesboro to Fairmont they went, leaving the savor of 
the good name of faithful servants of the Lord Jesus Christ. Much of 
the success of her husband's ministry is due to the encouragement 
and untiring work of his companion. She was the ideal preacher's 
wife. Throughout the years of their service, she endured the hard- 
ships and the privations incidental to the life of a minister's wife with 
patience and courageous fortitude. They were not rich in things, but 
rich in spirit and in good works.

When the parsonage home was broken up by the death of her hus- 
band, she went with her children to Red Springs to live. Her husband 
and the writer were classmates at Trinity College and close friends 
throughout the years, but our appointments in the Conference were 
not close enough for us to visit each other very often. So it was at 
Red Springs that the writer became better acquainted with Mrs. 
Blalock and her children. She had a quiet, gentle, and unassuming 
nature, always maintaining the even tenor of her ways. She was a 
good mother. She loved to work with children. It was with them that 
she did her best work. She did kindergarten work, and worked in the 
children's department of the Sunday school. She was active and 
in her usual health up until her last illness of three weeks. 

The children of Mrs. Blalock are: Katherine (Mrs. John G. Hughes, 
Jr.) of Parkton; Nancy Wilson (Mrs. Robert Watson, Jr.) of Jonesboro 
Heights, Sanford; John E. Blalock, Jr., Dillon, S. C; Ann Eugenia 
(Mrs. George T. Stephenson), Red Springs. Her grandchildren are: 
John G. Hughes III, Richard Edward Hughes, Dariynda Watson, and 
George T, Stephenson, Jr. 



MRS. MICHAEL BRAD SHAW 
By H. E. Myers 



In the survey of missionary work of the women of North Carolina 
Conference in the years 1878 to 1928, Mrs. J. LeGrand Everett in 
Seven Times Seven reports the organization of "Christ's Jewels" in 
Tarboro in 1882. Mary Whitehurst, then only about thirteen years 
old, was one of those active in forming this organization for children; 
and after its establishment she was one of tne leaders in its work. 
At this early age the essential commitments and interests of Mrs. 
Michael Bradshaw were evident: her love for and consecration to 
Christ; her concern for and devotion to children; and her capacity 
for and proficiency in teaching. In December 1949 one of the last 
activities in which she engaged was a Christmas party for children 
living near her home on South Duke Street in Durham. She knew all 
of them by name, and they knew and loved her; for each there had 
been provided a gift; and on it in her own hand the name of each 
child had been written. The Christmas carols, the loving greetings 
of children and their sincere good wishes for a happy Christmas made 
an almost perfect closing ot the many programs she had prepared 
for children. 

The years between June 6, 1866, and March 23, 1950, were marked 
by her own growth in character and in her enriching service. Her 
education was in a private school conducted by her sister in Tar- 
boro. Following this, she attended Norfolk College, in Norfolk, Vir- 
ginia. After her graduation from college she taught school in and 
around Tarboro, where she established and conducted a private school. 

The contributions she made during these years of work in Tarboro 
and Edgecombe County were recognized some years ago in one of a 
series of articles published in The Southerner. The articles were 
tributes to the men and women whose lives "played an important part 
in the building of the town and country." Mrs. Bradshaw is described 
as one whose "work was responsible for an advancement in the de- 
velopment of the youth to such an extent that she can be classed as one 
of the great women of Edgecombe. Adults now living who were stu- 
dents of hers voice their appreciation and praise of her as a teacher. 
When there were no graded school, and when the public was small, 
this woman took the youth of Tarboro and shaped their minds, 



170 North Carolina Annual Conference 



strengthened right principles in the virtuous, incited the selfish and the 
indifferent to good actions, and gave even the frivolous a love of 
sound learning so that many now living praise her and love her as a 
great teacher and a woman of true intelligence. Miss Mary (Mamie) 
Whitehurst was a wonderful teacher both in the day school and in 
the Sunday school and her work has continued to grow and no one 
can estimate the influence of her life as time goes on." 

On April 7, 1897, Miss Mary Whitehurst married Michael Brad- 
shaw, a former pastor of the Methodist church in Tarboro. To them 
were born five children. The oldest, Mary Whitehurst, died in 
infancy. Robert is a member of this Conference and is this year serv- 
ing the First Methodist Church in Wilson, where his father was 
pastor 1911-1915. Michael Jr., is editor of the Toledo Blade, and lives 
in Toledo, Ohio. William is engaged in business, and lives in Durham. 
Margaret, who married William Donald Linton (now deceased), is 
engaged in secretarial work and lives in Washington, D. C. 

These children give evidence proving the excellence of the home 
made for them in the parsonage. Not only was the parsonage a real 
home for them; it was also a home for many others. The Bradshaw 
family was given to hospitality, and with their hospitality they gave 
such riches as come only in constant communion with Christ. Thus, 
this hospitality was a mark of true Christian fellowship. Loving 
Christ, they loved people of all ages and stations. In conversation 
with Mrs. Bradshaw one was impressed with the large number of 
people whom she knew, whose careers she could recount, and in whom 
she was personally interested. Where she lived flowers and pretty 
shrubbery marked the place; and on the inside of the house all of all 
ages found such ministry as the gospel provides for any hour faced 
by the human spirit. 

Her husband was a great preacher and truly "a good minister of 
Jesus Christ." To this net result, Mrs. Bradshaw made her contribu- 
tion. They were really made one in marriage; and their separate in- 
heritances and attainments were blended in a unit wherein one com- 
plemented the other. Their lives together were beautiful and inspir- 
ing, and they so lived and wrought in Christ and through Christ that 
all who came within the radius of their influence were blessed. As in 
her work as a mere child in forming and directing "Christ's Jewels" 
in her home town, Tarboro, Mrs. Bradshaw showed special gifts and 
interests; so through the years of partnership in the ministry with her 
husband, she continued to be most effective in work with children. 
Possibly no work in the Church gave her more joy than that of 
planning for and directing the children in carrying out a Children's 
Day program. On retirement of Dr. Bradshaw in 1930, they made 
their home on South Duke Street close to Duke Memorial Church 
where they had served in two pastorates. Here at Duke Memorial 
as in other pastorates, Mrs. Bradshaw had taught the Beginners' 
Class in Sunday school and had served with the children in the work 
of the "Missionary Society." Recognition of the effective work with 
children both at Duke Memorial and in other churches where she 
and her husband served was given at the May meeting of the Woman's 
Society of Christian Service of Duke Memorial Church. Mrs. A. M. 
Gates paid tribute to the fine contribution made by Mrs. Bradshaw 
in both life and service, and her name was placed on "The Memorial 
Roll" of the North Carolina Conference Woman's Society of Christian 
Service. 

Her husband, prior to his passing February 7, 1932, planned a service 
of worship for use at Duke Memorial church when his going Home 
should take place. This service was not the usual funeral service; 
rather, it was such a service as would be suitable for an hour of 



Journal of Proceedings 171 



praise and thanksgiving for the believer's triumph in Christ. The 
family kept the copy of this service prepared by Dr. Bradshaw and 
written in his own hand. In life and work this devoted couple had 
been one; and for each of them, the termination of life in this sphere 
was a time for praise, thanksgiving and worship. So when Mrs. Brad- 
show had triumphed through faith, this same service prepared for 
use by her husband when he passed was regarded as the most fitting 
that could be provided. Her pastor, Rev. Robert E. Brown, and the 
writer shared in the service. The body of this good woman was placed 
beside that of her husband in the family plot in Maplewood. For 
both of them, in life and in the hour of transition, their united spirits 
were one in the reverent declaration: "Thanks be unto God, who 
giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." 



MRS. N. L. SEABOLT 
By H. G. Cuthrell 



Mrs. N. L. Seabolt, 79, of Maxton, N. C, completed her earthly 
pilgrimage April 30, 1950. 

She was born Mary Rebecca Meacham in Richmond County, October 
26, 1871. In 1889 she married Rev. N. L. Seabolt, a Methodist minister 
and member of the North Carolina Conference. Together they labored 
and served in the North Carolina Conference for 38 years, working 
faithfully together for the Kingdom of God in the following parishes 
of the Conference: El Dorado in Montgomery County; Hatteras; 
Grimesland; Milbrook; Jenkins Memorial, Raleigh; Rockingham Cir- 
cuit; Candor; Lumberton Circuit; Troy Circuit; and Robbins. 

As a wife and mother of the parsonage she lived a beautiful 
Christian life, loyal to her home, her church, her friends and her 
community. Modest and unassuming she was recognized for her 
spirit of friendliness and willingness to help all who were in need. 
The great love and inspiration of her life was the Methodist Church, 
and to the church she gave the utmost devotion and loving service. 
She was a woman of humility and practical compassion, always re- 
joicing in opportunities for service to God and humanity. 

For the past few years her membership was in the Maxton and 
Troy Methodist Churches. She fought a good fight, and kept the faith 
for her Lord and church through many years of creative and sacri- 
ficial service. 

Funeral service was conducted at the home of her daughter, Mrs. 
F. C. Frostick of Maxton by Rev. H. G. Cuthrell, pastor of the Maxton 
Methodist Church, assisted by Rev. Forrest Young, pastor of the 
Maxton Baptist Church, and burial took place in the Maxton cemetery. 

Surviving are three daughters, Mrs. F. C. Frostick, and Misses 
Louise and Ruth Seabolt; and four sons, J. G., J. R., N. M., and W. E. 
Seabolt. 



MRS. M. D. HEX 
By R. E. Brown 



Mrs. Imogene Murdock Hix, widow of Rev. M. D. Hix, passed away 
in Durham, N. C, on June 10, 1950. 

Mrs. Hix was born August 22, 1871, in Randolph County. He-- 
parents were Alexander Gray Murdock and Dorcas Lassiter Murdoch 

In October, 1889, she was married and went to live in Goldsborc 
where her husband began his first charge. Together they served to« 



1 72 North Carolina Annual Conference 



following charges — Goldsboro, Henderson, Gibson, Beaufort, Hertford, 
Mt. Gilead, Granville Circuit, Rose Hill-Wallace, Southport. 

She is survived by the following children: Mrs. Imogene Ausbon, 
Miss Mary Hix, and Edwin J. Hix, of Durham, and David N. Hix of 
Oxford. She leaves also four grandchildren. Four sons preceded her 
in death: George M., Burkhead, Malcolm D., and Milton Rone. 

June 12, 1950, at 11:00 o'clock in the church she loved so much 
friends and loved ones gathered for the funeral service of one of 
God's noblest Christians. It was more like a home going, and all those 
present seemed to hear the Master say, "Enter into the joy of thy Lord, 
thou hast been faithful," and we felt the joy of reunion with a be- 
loved preacher husband and four sons who had gone on before — a 
glorious reunion with the Everlasting Arms of the Almighty about all 
in the Father's House. The minister was reading words from the 
ritual but the people present were hearing voices and heavenly music 
as the Master was tenderly whispering, Let not your heart be troubled, 
she is safe in my Father's House. Her sweet spirit lingers still in the 
hearts of her many friends and members of Duke Memorial church, 
who rise up and called her name blessed. When we turn again home 
we shall find her there, and dwell in the House of the Lord forever. 



MRS. L. M. HALL 
By Clyde G. McCarver 



Anna Bryan Clement was born at Wallace, N. C, on March 7, 1888, 
the daughter of Professor Samuel W. Clement and Anna Bryan 
Clement. She received her formal education at Wallace High School, 
the University of North Carolina, Yale University, and Hartford 
Theological Seminary. On July 11, 1917, she was married to Rev. 
Leon M. Hall, with whom she served faithfully and effectively for the 
Kingdom of God for thirty-three years. She accompanied him during 
his tour of duty in two World Wars where he served as a chaplain of 
the United States Army. 

Never desiring the place of honor, Mrs. Hall seemed to specialize 
in helping youth and young people to find a sympathetic adjustment 
to life. Yet her influence and witness was seen and felt in all the 
activities of the church. People of all walks of life came to her freely 
for advice and assistance, for she, like her Master, loved so completely 
that they felt at home in her presence. No problem was too menial or 
too large for her consideration. She was honored by being presented a 
Life Membership in the Woman's Society of Christian Service. Her 
full Christian life and spiritual contagion shall live as long as there is 
one person remaining who knew her. 

God called Mrs. Hall to a larger service in His Heavenly Kingdom 
on July 9, 1950. She approached her new life "soothed and sustained 
by an unfaltering trust ... as one who wraps the draperies of his 
couch about him and lies down to pleasant dreams." Funeral services 
were conducted from Calvary Methodist Church in Durham, N. C, 
where her husband is minister. The services were conducted by Dr. 
E. L. Hillman, Rev. D. E. Earnhardt, and Rev. H. L. Davis. Mr. Earn- 
hardt had served as "best man" at her wedding just thirty -three 
years prior. Many of that party were present for the funeral service. 

It was very fitting that Mrs. Hall should have been laid to rest 
within sight of Duke University Chapel, where the lovely music of the 
carillon can be heard. She was always a lover of the fine, wholesome, 
and lovely things of life. 

Because of the abundant life of Anna Clement Hall many are they 
who shall inherit the Kingdom of God.

MRS. EUGENIA COWARD PITTMAN 
By M. T. Plyler 

Mrs. Eugenia Coward Pittman died at her home at 213 Edwards 
Street, in Durham, Tuesday morning, October 10, 1950. Sick for 
several months, she passed away quietly in her sleep. 

Mrs. Pittman married December 11, 1911, the late Rev. R. E. 
Pittman, for many years a minister in the North Carolina Conference. 
Possessing all the attributes that enter into the making of a preacher's 
wife, Mrs. Pittman played a major role in the successful ministry en- 
joyed by her husband for twenty-five years and with every move made 
by her husband their going brought genuine regret to the members 
of the church from which they were moving. The parsonage always 
maintained an open door policy and a friendly welcome greeted all 
who entered in. 

The deceased was a native of Grifton. She was the daughter of the 
late A. G. and Nancy Stanley Coward. She lived the early years of 
her life in Grifton and with the entry of Mr. Pittman into the service 
of his church as pastor she began her life which carried her 
into numerous communities to live. After the death of her husband 
in 1936, while serving the Brooksdale circuit, Mrs. Pittman moved to 
Durham and into the house he had purchased for their occupancy 
upon his retirement from the active ministry. Soon after moving to 
Durham she joined Calvary Methodist Church where she was active 
in various phases of its program until her fatal illness. 

Surviving are five daughters, Mrs. J. B. Frizzelle of Greene County, 
Mrs. A. T. Fields of Swansboro, and Miss Louise Delle Pittman, Mrs. 
Wyatt T. Dixon and Mrs. Watts Fowler of Durham; two sons, Levi M. 
Pittman of Green Belt, Md., and Francis Pittman of Kinston; five 
sisters, Mrs. J. H. Barwick, Mrs. G. T. Gardner, Mrs. R. C. McCotter, 
Mrs. Marvin Taylor and Mrs. L. O. Cox, all of Grifton; seven grand- 
children and one great-grandchild. 

Having known both the Pittman and the Coward families from 
the days of my early ministry, it is a temptation of mine to indicate 
the rich Christian heritage that came to Rev. Robert E. Pittman 
and his devoted wife who was the inspiration of his life and work as a 
minister, but I forbear — her fine family remains to carry on through 
the following generations. 

Funeral services were held Wednesday afternoon at 3 o'clock in the 
Hall-Wynne Funeral Chapel, with Rev. Leon M. Hall of Calvary 
church officiating, assisted by Rev. D. D. Holt, pastor of Trinity Meth- 
odist Church. Interment was made in the family plot in the new 
annex of Maplewood Cemetery in Durham. 



MRS. JAMES W. SNEEDEN 

By A. S. Parker 



Mrs. Pearl Futrell Sneeden, wife of Rev. James W. Sneeden, reached 
the end of her earthly journey at West End, N. C, November 8, 1949, 
after a long and useful life of service in the Master's Kingdom. 

She was born June 16, 1875, at Mount Olive, N. C, the daughter 
of Benjamin and Martha Futrell. She joined the Methodist Church 
at Mount Olive at 10 years of age. On September 4, 1895, she was 
married to James W. Sneeden in the Mount Olive Methodist Church by 
her pastor, Rev. N. M. Journey. She and her husband lived in 



174 North Carolina Annual Conference 



Kenansville for a number of years where he was court reporter and 
later established a commercial school. From Kenansville they went to 
Wilmington to live. During these years Mrs. Sneeden was active in 
church work, teaching in Sunday school, serving as an officer in the 
Woman's Society of Christian Service and a leader in Christian 
activities of Trinity church in Wilmington. 

Her husband joined the N. C. Conference in 1924, several years 
after their marriage. It was with a heart full of love for God and the 
good of His cause that she entered into the life of the Methodist 
parsonage and met the problems and hardships of the minister's wife 
with a smile and a will to do her best. The first charge they served 
was Kenansville, where they had lived for six years. Here they were 
graciously received and spent three happy and useful years. 

She and her husband took their place in the North Carolina 
Conference and labored in such a way that the people whom they 
served were always devoted to their pastor's wife as well as appre- 
ciative of their pastor. She was a co-pastor, interested in all phases 
of church work, especially the shut-in and people in needy circum- 
stances. She also took part in community activities such as PTA, 
Woman's Club, and civic betterment agencies. She was presented a 
life membership in the Woman's Society of Christian Service by the 
New Bern District Society. The charges in which she lived were: 
Kenansville, 3 years; Pantego-Belhaven, 2 years; Bath, 4 years; 
Aurora, 3 years; Wanchese, 6 years; Mebane, 1 year; North Henderson 
— White Memorial, 2 years; and West End, 4 years. 

Mrs. Sneeden cared little for the spectacular things of life, but 
spent her energies and talents in doing the things that counted for 
good to those about her. 

She was confined to the house for about 11 months before her 
death; but throughout the period of her affliction she remained cheer- 
ful and her faith held steadfast. 

Surviving are her husband and three children, J. Earl Sneeden of 
Wilmington, N. C, Ben Sneeden of Chicago, 111., and Miss M. Elizabeth 
Sneeden of Washington, D. C; 11 grandchildren and 2 great-grand- 
children and one sister, Mrs. Sally Humphrey of Wilmington, N. C. 

Funeral services were conducted from her husband's church at 
West End, N. C, by Rev. A. S. Parker, assisted by Rev. H. C. Smith 
and Rev. W. C. Ball. Her body was laid to rest in beautiful Oakdale 
Cemetery in Wilmington.
