To Hold Session Next Tear ?t Greenville The North Carolina Methodist Conference which hn? J net complet ed Its 19S0 anual session In Hender son rend the appointments of preachers for the coming year. Those affecting this Immediate section will be found below. The report from Conference on Saturday concerning Loulsburg Col lege came as a" great surprise to Loulsburg people who held a mass meeting in the Methodist church Sunday afternoon sponsored by the alumnae with the result that a com mittee composed of W. H. \arbor ough, W. E. White. Q. M. Beam. E. H. Malone, Mrs. M. S. Clifton and Miss Lilly Letton went over to Henderson to plead the cause of the College with the result of almost a unanimous decision on the part of Conference to go to the aid of this institution, as will be seen from the following report taken from the Con ference proceedings: Loan To College. By the rote of 1?8 to 10, the Con ference extended a credit of fH?* 000 to Loulsburg College to see it through the present semester ending January 20. The vote followed a lengthy and spirited debate, during which time Rev. W. A. Stanbury, Durham, chair man of the conference Board of Christian Education, pointed out the difficulties confronting the college, pd what he considered the futility and lack of wisdom of any plan to attempt to keep it In operation. He was Joined In this objection by Rev. C. K. Proctor, treasurer of the col lege board of trustees, but numer ous other speakers urged extension of the credit, to the end that the col lege might keep faith with IU hun dred students, the faculty and other commitments. It was also decided to wage a campaign in the North Carolina Christian Advocate, Greensboro, for funds toward the $18J>0# needed. The conference provided for the ap plication of funds In a 14,500 ap propriation toward the college cause toward payment of Interest and principal on the loan. If It were ne gotiated. The plan Is for the $12,000 to be repaid in fonr equal annual payments over the quadrennlum, to gether with Interest charge. All of the $12,000 Is for obligations be tween November 1, 1080, and Jan uary 20, 1011. Provision was made in a resolu tion adopted, that the trustees. In the even the college was forced to suspend at the end of the present semester, make such disposition of the college property ss they may consider best and with the aproval, of Bishop Monion. It was brought out that the college has a debt of $146,000, and It was said IU value was In excess of 8600,000. After an appeal by W. L. Knight, Weldon attorney, and member of the board bf trustees. Rev. A. 1?. Wilcox. Loulsburg pastor, said a lit tle aid now would see the college through its difficulties, and at his insistence. Miss Letton, member of the faculty, told the conference that the students and faculty members In separate meetings Snnday, had n greed to make any sacrifices re quired to continue the institution In operation The faculty was willing to forego salaries for a month or two and the studenU ready to scrub fldors or do any other menlnl task to keep the institution from sloslpg. E. H. MalOne, Loulsburg attorney. Methodist steward and member of tho college board of trustees, spoke In behalf of Loulsburg citizens In urging the assistance. There was some speculation as to the significance of the conference In giving to Rev. C. C. Alexander, the president of Loulsburg ColRge, ?n appointment at LIUtngton lnfcmntor al work during the coming fbar. It is understood he will oontlnne at the college and relelved from the work at LIUtngton. Appoints were made as foUows: Raleigh District. Presiding Elder, H. U. North. Bailey. J. C.

IMMEDIATE EF FORTS NEEDED To the Friends of Louisburg Col lege: Two facts have become evident relative to Lonlsbarg College with in the last few days. First, heroic efforts must be pot forth immediately If the life of the College Is to be continued. Second, the hesrts of the people of Franklin County and the North Carolina Conference are the cause Of Louisburg College. For this atti tude we are deeply grateful. Conference went a step further In its action in behalf of the College than I have ever known it to go for any other institution. It authorises the borrowing of $1S,000.00 for Louisburg College and assumed the direct responsibility for this debt. It further pledged full support to the cause of Louisburg College to wards its future continuance. Play are already being put into operation to realise upon the loyalty of the Conference. The people of Franklin County as a group and Individuals are rally ing to the support of the College. Every one seems ready to sacrifice to the limit to help the situation. There is manifest everywhere a will to win. With such a spirit locally and throughout the Conference the hori zon is -brightening. The call Is that we work together and pray together to victory.
