The Recording Secretary announced that any conference having a

sending delegates to the annual meeting of the Board of Managers shall pay 
to the Committee on Arrangements for entertainment ten dollars for each ex- 
ofificio member and delegate." 

Proposed changes in the Constitution were read by the Recording Secre- 
tary for notification as follows:

by-laws, a corresponding secretary, a recording secretary, and a treasurer." 

Page 250, Art. VI, Board of Managers — amend to read as follows: Sec. 1 
— "The Board of Managers shall consist of the Board of Trustees and other of- 
ficials and conference representatives as may be designated in the by-laws and 
are in attendance at the meeting." Sec. 2 — "The regular meeting of the Board 
of Managers shall be held annually or biennially as provided in the by-laws." 

Page 250, Art VII, Trustees, Sec. 1 — amend to read as follows: "The 
Board of Trustees shall consist of the officers of the Society and such addi- 
tional trustees as may be provided in the by-laws, elected by the Board of 
Managers." 

Page 251, Sec. 3, fourth line — substitute: "A majority shall constitute 
a quorum." 

Page 251, Art. X, Membership and Dues — strike out words "And Dues." 
Amend the article to read as follows: "Membership in this Society shall be 
active and associate; there shall also be life, perpetual, and memorial member- 
ships as provided in the by-laws." 

Page 252, Art. XI, Relation to other branches of church work. In Sec. 



Minutes. 63 

3, seventh line, change "Annual" to "Regular." Strike out "for the ensuing 
year" in the nineteenth line and substitute "until the next regular meeting." 
Page 252, Art XII, Amendments — shall read: "This Constitution may 
be amended at any regular meeting of the Board of Managers by a two- 
thirds vote of the members present and voting, said amendment having been 
previously published three times in Woman's Home Missions. Article XI 
may not be amended except to conform to action of the General Conference 
of the Methodist Episcopal Church." 

Upon motion by Mrs. J. N. Rodeheaver, it was carried with only seven- 
teen votes in the negative, that as an emergency measure for this year fourteen 
trustees only be elected at this meeting by the Board of Managers. 

Mrs. J. H. Freeman called attention to the value of the President's 
address, and it was moved and carried that it should be printed and read 
in every auxiliary this year, as early as possible. 

In the interests of efficiency and economy the Board of Trustees reported 
the consideration of new plans for regional divisions of the work of the Society 
and the appointment of a committee of seven, three from the Board of Trus- 
tees, three from the bureau secretaries, and the secretary of Education and 
Personnel, to study regional divisions and the administrative plans of other 
denominations. The President appointed the following: Mrs. Adelaide Hudd, 
chairman; Mrs. F. D. Leete, Mrs. Foss Zartman, Mrs. H. S. Osborn, Miss 
Laura May Robinson, Mrs. Anna L. Zook, and Miss Muriel Day. This was 
approved. 

Mrs. G. W. Bristow made announcements concerning the sectional 
conferences. After the leaders of the conferences had briefly outlined the 
matters to be considered, the session was adjourned. 



WEDNESDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 11, 1933 

THE evening session opened with a half hour of music by the choir of 
First Methodist Episcopal Church, Decatur, Illinois, with Mr. Eldon

The Young People's Department makes the following recommendations: 



72 The Woman's Home Missionary Society. 

"1. That the leadership training course for leaders in conjunction with 
the Board of Education of our church be formulated for our department. 

"2. That a field worker be assigned to the Young People's Department, 
and that for this year the worker be Miss Helen Johnson. 

"3. That, if possible, there be given to the Young People's Department, 
at this meeting, the name of the project for the $100,000 fund from Girls' 
Golden Year." This report was accepted. 

Mrs. Dan B. Brummitt presented the findings of the study class on the 
textbook, "Christianity and Industry in America": 

"In the use of leisure there is either recreation and culture or dissipation 
and evil. We therefore respectfully request that through our publications in 
Woman's Home Missions, or in leaflets, we be kept informed on how best 
to conserve this element of leisure time, not only in our own lives but in the 
lives of those with whom we share social and industrial problems, and believe 
that the statement of the International Missionary Council of five years 
ago is as true to-day as it was five years ago. 'You cannot at once preach the 
religion of Christianity and practice the religion of material success, which 
is the creed of a great part of the Western world, and is the true competitor of 
Christianity for the allegiance of mankind.' " The entire report was approved. 
Mrs. Ethel T. Holland submitted the findings from the Workers' Conference 
as follows: 

"We must meet the changing conditions of the day with a new appraisal 
of 'Ourselves and Our Society.' We must choose the most important things 
and bring our very best efforts to them, by recognizing our own responsibility 
and by preparing ourselves carefully to win and hold the uninterested and 
uninformed Methodist woman. A thorough and careful study of our booklet, 
'Study for Better Service,' will give this necessary preparation. We recom- 
mend its wide use. 

"We must learn the value of publicity. Let us make wide use of our local 
newspapers. Letters have gone out from the office of the National Corre- 
sponding Secretary to every Methodist pastor in the entire United States 
where the Society is not organizaed, carrying an offer to supply them free of 
cost with facts about the Society. 

"During November we shall give further publicity to our Society by a 
poster map. 

'We endorse the Conference Mentor Plan as suggested by our National 
Corresponding Secretary, whereby the larger conferences become the big 
sisters of the smaller conferences. 

"Realizing that more responsibility should be placed on district executive 
boards, we approve the District Zoning Plan outlined by the National Corre- 
sponding Secretary. 

"We endorse whole-heartedly 'Girls' Golden Year' and the Junior De- 
partment plans, and pledge our support of them. 

"Two groups of women who ofTer a great field for cultivation are the 
business and professional women and the young married women and girls in the 
later twenties. By the promotion of Wesleyan Service Guilds and the organi- 
zation of Young Woman's auxiliaries, a field of almost uncultivated poten- 
tialities is reached. 

"We call upon our women to use the plan presented by Mrs. Ruckdeschel 
and outlined in the August number of Woman's Home Missions by forging 
a chain of witnesses and where possible by observing the 9 A. M. daily prayer 
circle for home missions. 

"The development and furtherance of a well-rounded, well-informed, active 
Christian Citizenship Department is urged. 

"We recommend the promotion of combined societies, only where such 
a combination would truly promote a wider interest in and service for the 
missionary cause. 

"To the auxiliaries which feel they must disband if forced to pay dues 
and accept budgets, we recommend that program material be sent them by the 
conference and that they be urged to hold on to their organizations, continue 
regular meetings, if possible use a mite box or blessing box, and in every way 
seek to retain the interest of their women. 



Minutes. 73 

"We heartily endorse the subscription envelop plan of five cents per week 
for ten weeks to encourage subscriptions to Woman's Home Missions. We 
urge every officer of conference, district, and auxiliary to become subscribers 
as well as every member. The increasing use of the Study Course for auxiliary 
meeting programs is recommended." The entire report was approved. 

Mrs. Daniel Stecker closed the morning session with a message on "Per- 
sonal Service." 



MONDAY AFTERNOON, OCTOBER 16, 1933

W. G. Pullian.

Mrs. Karl Winter presented the findings of the Conference of Correspond- 
ing Secretaries as follows: 

"The conference secretaries in conference assembled, endorsed the pro- 
motional plans as presented. We realize the necessity of trained leadership 
and feel that these plans if well worked will develop potential leaders and stim- 
ulate interest. 

"The imperative necessity of strengthening the weakest line, the district, 
is absolutely necessary to the continued growth of our endeavor, and to the 
strengthening of all departments. 

"We earnestly seek the hearty co-operation of all conference officers, 
especially presidents and treasurers in these and ail endeavors for the promotion 
of the work.

Jesus Christ and his plans for the Kingdom as a means of forging the Chain 
of Witnesses; 

"2. The immediate urgency of helping the membership realize that 
the work of missions is influenced by the civic activities of Christian women; 

"3. The renewed recognition of the challenge and joy of knowing and 
working with youth and the hearty endorsement of the plans for 'Girls' 
Golden Year'; 

"4. The importance of developing trained leaders for the Juniors who 
are members of The Woman's Home Missionary Society organizations while 
also encouraging all educational agencies in the church to make a larger 
place for the missionary emphasis; 

"5. The opportunity for constructive criticisms and appreciations offered 
by the editor of Woman's Home Missions and approval of the plan for in- 
creasing subscriptions through the Testimony Parties; 

"6. The necessity for continuous study of conference needs and trends 
to be met by definitely planned methods and contacts. 

"7. That the presidents — auxiliary, district, and conference — conscien-

Mrs. M. L. Robinson, chairman of Courtesies, expressed appreciation 
to the General Chairman, Illinois Conference, the pastor of St. James Church, 
and the local committees for the courtesies extended to the Board of Managers

*This period covers a fair experience of the Society, since practically all existing contracts 
were entered into within this time And also, it was during this period that the earlier policy 
of putting annuity funds into building was corrected to a policy of full income investment until 
the annuity principal funds were released by demise. 

Note — Schedules 1 and 2 are omitted this year.

DEACONESS WORK 

Miss Grace G. Steiner, Secretary 
420 Plum Street, Cincinnati, Ohio 

We have 424 deaconesses listed under our administration. The number 
has been decreased due to one death, three marriages, one withdrawal, one 
transfer to the Missionary Department, one request for transfer to the Meth- 
odist Deaconess Association, seven honorable discharges, and by dropping 
a number who have not been in touch with the administration for a long time 
and have shown no desire to be continued. Two deaconesses have received 
the retired relation with pension. Seventeen graduates applied for admission 
as deaconesses. Six of this number have received appointment, two are in 
school for additional training, three are in temporary work, and six have no 
work as yet. 

The statistical report shows: 

49,390 different persons taught in religious work. 

19,886 different persons taught in industrial work. 

9,830 enrolled in daily vacation church schools. 

10, 193 enrolled in week-day church schools. 

1,884 enrolled in kindergarten and day nursery. 

The financial report of deaconess institutions is as follows: 

Total balance in treasuries, 1932 $74,830 11 

Total receipts of deaconess institutions 169,514 80 

Debit balance of one institution 622 71 

$244,967 62 
Total disbursements of deaconess institutions 170,528 85 

Balance in treasuries, June 30, 1933 $74,438 77 

Value of property and furnishings $1,008,206 48 

Endowment 283 , 145 00 

Total indebtedness on property 56 , 350 00 

The Deaconess Emergency and Relief Fund has given aid to twenty-nine 
deaconesses this year, amounting to $4,870.18. 

WESLEYAN SERVICE GUILD 

Mrs. Merle N. English, Secretary 
723 Emerson Street, Evanston, Illinois 

In spite of the discouraging conditions in the business world, twenty-three 
new groups of adult employed women have been organized this year into two 
units of the Wesleyan Service Guild. 

Over seventy-five per cent of these have been organized from independ- 
ent groups with no missionary background or from Sunday school classes. 

While the Annual Report indicates a small loss in membership because 
of inability of many to pay dues, it does not show a loss in number of units or 
in interest in the work. 

120 



Wesleyan Service Guild. 121 

There has been an increase in the number of conference Guild secretaries 
during this past year. (See the Wesleyan Service Guild constitution on page 
153 for method of nomination.) This perhaps accounts for the increase in 
interest. 

The changed method of sending appropriations to units through con- 
ference treasurers is getting under way in many of our conferences and appro- 
priations have reached units during the summer when they are planning their 
work for the year. This is as it should be. 

Any questions which conference officers may have concerning procedure, 
the chairman of the Central Committee will gladly try to answer.
