In the adoption of a special re- iort on social and industrial rein- .ions, the General Assemb'.y prepared for larger activities for the remedy of unemployment and kindred ills through a permanent organization on social and Industrial relationships and for the extension of brotherhood and fraternalism. Better interracial relations were advocated, lynching and mob violence condemned, and cooperation and union among denominations were advanced. A greater Christian usefulness- of the entire man-power of the church was planned through more rigid requirements for an educated ministry and more intelligent practical evangelism through a system of higher cultivation in church work among the ruling elders. The Assembly's celebration of the centennial of its foreign missions led to affirmation of a forward program throughout the world, with renewal of missionary preaching in every pulpit. The Assembly joined other ecclestical courts in urging upon President Hoover a national day of prayer and humiliation as part of the inter-denominational crusade for Christianizing all nations.
