On Sunday, Oct. 20, an organized ef- ort was begun by the Central Penn- ylvanla conference of the Methodist nurch, through its board of philan- iroples, to clear certain of its instl- utions of debt. Since April of the resent year, a committee of which *ev. J. McK. Rlley, D. D., of Al- oona district superintendent of the Itoona district, has been at work for- nulatlng its plans. The debts to be rovlded for are $80,000, on the Method- t Home for the Aged at Tyrone; .10,000 on the Methodist Home for hildren at Shiremanstown, near Har- sburg, and $10,000 on the Wesley otmdation at State College, making a otal of $200,000. This was a large undertaking in the ace of poor industrial conditions but, rtth confidence in their people, it was olieved it could- be done. Accordlng- the necessary committees were ap- ointed and throughout the twenty-six ountles comprising the conference the fork has .gone steadily forward. Dr. lorace Lincoln Jacobs, formerly pas- or of the First Methodist church, Al- oona, now in Bedford, was made pub- city secretary. A mailing list of ghteen thousand prospects was se- ured and printed matter giving facts nd other Information was mailed to very one of these prospects. Rev. H. C. Burkholder of Harrlsburg as secured for field secretary and has eneral oversight of the work. No utslde help whatever was secured, he committee depending upon the jyalty and devotion of the ministers nd their people. When the prelimi- arles had been worked out, a system f pulpit exchange was planned for lunching Sunday. Almost every con- regation saw a strange face In the ulpit that day. . A hymn written for le occasion by Rev. Percy Boughey of [azelton was sung in most of the tiurches. A sermon prepared by Rev. jeorge A. Duvall, pastor of the Colum- la Avenue Methodist church of Tyone, from the text "There is a river he streams whereof make glad the Ity of God," was mailed in pamphlet orm to each preacher for inspirational urpose. The soliciting began on Monday, Oct. 1, and will continue until Sunday, )ec. 2, with gleaning Sunday on that ay. The canvassing is done by the ministers, assisted by such laymen as an be secured. No preacher inter- lews his own people, exchanges being affected for that purpose. To more effectively perfect the organization, from four to six parishes re formed into a group with a leader or each group. When a solicitor has :ompleted his canvass he sends a com- .ilete report on prepared blanks to his jroup leader, and the group leader abulates and mails his report to one jf the two assistant field secretaries with which each of the 'four 'districts In he conference has been provided. These in turn report at fixed intervals .o the office of the business- manager. W. G. Murtoff, the treasurer of State college, at State College. As soon as a corps of secretaries make the proper listings, checkings, etc., all subscription cards and remit- .ances are forwarded to the office of .he treasurer, Rev. Barnett Hamilton Hart, pastor of the First Methodist church, of Hollidaysburg. At the close of the third week, according to reports received at the treasurer's office, 2,000 subscription notes have been tabulated, totaling well over $100,000, with the campaign gaining enthusiasm with each pass- Ing day. The man with a gift of $10,500 is cooperating beautifully with his brethren of more modest circumstances, and there can be no question of a splendid outcome of this greal effort. As the theatre people sometimes say, "It is going over with a jang." Everywhere the soliciting clergymen are received with greatest courtesy and in almost every instance a subscription is made. Y. W.
