Complete Set of Officers Elected -Address
of Mrs. Dowis De-
scribes Successful Metbcd
of Dealing with Boys
My far the most smceshful Sunday
s hool conveutiiAi in the history of the
county organization closed here this
morning with the meeting at the Meth
odist church featuring up to the last
moment th intense Interest in the
work that waa manifested throughout
the entire meeting. It was estimated
that last night at the meetings at th
Cnristlan and Methodist churches more
people attended each meeting; than
were present at all the meetings com
bined of last year and the year before.
While no one attempted an estimate
of the number of delegates present it
was evident by the crowds that the
attendance was several times greater
than ever before. Officers elected for
the ensuing year are as follows: Dr.
W. S. Corbln Chickasha. president; II.
K. Davenport. Chickasha first vice
president; Chas. Brown Tuttle second
vice president; Sherman Hostick Ver-
den third vice president; C. M. Lents

The work of Miss Nichols of Okla-
homa City as pianist throughout the
convention attracted much attention
aiid the officers especially commended
her for such splendid service.
The features of last night's meetings
were the addresses of Mrs. G E. Dowis
of Rlackwell on "The Practical Side
of Sunday School Work" and Dr. S.
Wolfinger president of the Oklahoma
State Sunday School association on "Is
U Worth. While?"
The address of Vis lK)w- ws ou
ceded to be the best that she lias ever'
delivered here and dealt largelv with
her own experiences at the head ot her
class of boys :n a P'ackwell Sunday
school. She told ot the practical or-
ganization and operation of the class
and the interest that was aroused
through placing the work chiefly in
tile boys" hands and acting only as a
superintendent herself. Her class in
lllackwell is the largest boys' and
young men's Sunday school class in
Oklahoma and is a well organized sell'
governing "oody in itself.
Sunday afternoon at the Methodist
church J. S. Peter of Pawnee deliv-
ered his first address in a Chickasha
Sunday school convention and the
mauner of handling his oubjict "A
Kith Harvest" was exceedingly in-
structive. The State Sunday School convention
will meet in March at El Reno at
which time many noted national Suit
day school workers will be present.
