two have the out run Richmond Pastor Offered Church In Georgia City MACON, G?.. CAP)--The Rev. Byron M. Wilkinson, pastor of the Hatcher Memorial Baptist Church of Richmond, Va., has been asked to assume pastorship of Tattnall Square Baptist Church here. The Tattnall Square congregation congregation dismissed the Rev. Thomas Holmes and an associate pastor and music minister last September September during a controversy over admitting Negroes to worship services. The Rev. Mr. Holmes backed the seating at church services of Sam Jerry Oni, an African exchange student at Mercer University. Elmer Jenkins, chairman of deacons, said no definite word has been received from the Rev. Mr. Wilkinson but that his answer answer is expected this week.
