j Having giTen six sons to his coun
try in the great world war, Richard
I. Manning, Governor of South Caro
lina during the war, has enlisted in
the Nation-Wide Campaign of tha
Episcopal Church to prepare it to
meet after the war conditions and
fight the battles of peace. Governor
Manning is chairman of the Nation
wide Campaign Committee for the
Diocese of South Carolina. H- is a
members of the Standing Committee of
that Diocese and has frequently re p
sented his diocese as lay-delegate to
the Episcopal general convention.
Five of Governor Manning's sons
served in France. One was promoted
to be a Lieutenant Colonel, two to be
Majors and one to be a First Lieu
tenant. Two of the sons were under
age. The eldest, Major William
; Sinkler Manning, was killed in the
-battle of - the Argonne, just a few
days before the signing of the armis

Campaign of the Episcopal Church is

the Church is doing and what it must
have in order to meet the crisis that
now confronts the world.
"It takes stock of its members and

"The survey reveals what the
church has done and what it must

Episcopal Nation-Wide Cam

Foster Schools For
Race In South
The first practical work to be un
dertaken by a church in America for
the development and welfare of the
Nation-Wide Campaign by which the
Episcopal Church is seeking to expand
Its scope as a church "and broaden
Its spiritual and practical usefulness.
, In" the $42,000,0.00 budget for the
.campaign, the funds for which are
to be raised in a one-day canvass, De
cember 7, the program for expansion
of the Church's work in every field
gives the negro a prominent part.
Education, the Church believes, is
the ereat stepping-stone to the fulfill
ment of the negro's destiny, and its
program for the negro in the Nation
wide Campaign makes education pri
mary. It plans to prepare the two negro
republics. Liberia and Haiti, by es
tablishing more schools and more cen-

on the ground. In Liberia it purposes
through schools, missionaiy doctors
and workers to win the co-operation
of 1,000,000 cannibals and devil-wo
shippers of the interior, in the de
velopment of the rich resources of
the country. In Haiti it plans,
through similar means, to halt the
"retrogression cf the peasants; and give
them impetus ind training or prog
ress and agricultural, development.
But the major work laid out by the
campaign program is in America. It
confronts the problem1 of the negro
i.invaslon of the North and undertakes
to create public sentiment in indus
r trial communities for decent housing
conditions for'the negroes, clean recre
ation and amusement and opportuni
ties' for religious life .
In - the South it concentrates its
work in the American ' Church" Insti
tute .for' negroes. This institute is
officially connected with nine negro

North . Carolina South Carolina, Geor
gia, Alabama, Mississippi and TennesJ
see. ' To these schools 1n the next
'three years the Campaign seeks to
give more than fifty new' buildings, an
. equal number of additional -teachers
hundreds of acres of ; land, large Quan
tities of new" equipment. : It purposes
to create a fund by which other negro
institutions, may be aided and devel,
oped by the Church.

"The information thus carried to
every family cannot fail to stimulate
