Church Convention
Merges Boards With
Center At Elon
The Southern Convention of the
Ooingregatioinal-Christian Church
es was in session at Portsmouth,
Virginia, from April 26-29. On
the first evening of the Conven
tion, Dr. Smith gave a keynote
address in which he emphasized
the fact that “the letter killeth,
but the spirit maketh alive”.
Other delegates from Elon in
cluded LeGrand M'oody, Emmanuel
Hed'gebeth, and Dr. D. J. Bow
A very important event took
place at this Convention, the
merging of the B'Oiard of Educa
tion, 'created to foster higher edu-
fcation in the Convention, with
Elon College as its center, and
the Board of Ghristiian Education,
chartered to conduct a program
of religious education in the local
churches of the Convention. Th«
new Board is to be known as the
Board of Christian Educatlom,
and is charged with the respoDSii-
bilities formerly held by the two
boards. The puirpose of this de
partment iwill be to conduct a
unified proigram 'of education be
ginning with the grades in the
Sunday School. The Rev. F. C.
Lester was elelcted as promotion
al secretary for the Conventiom,
which also includes the work of
the Board of Christian Edui^ation.
Tennis Team Gains
More Prestige As
Season Nears Close
Elon’s tennis team went north
this week for a four-game sche
dule. George Washington, Wash
ington and Lee, G«oirgetown, an>d
probably Lynchburg are bo be
played. When the Maroon and
Gold went to ipress only Washing
ton and Lee had been met, this
game being lost.
Last week the team met David
son, Catawba, Atlantic Christian,
and High Point. Only Davidson,
the non-conferen|ce foe, won over
the Christians. 'At the present
the conference ^championship is
virtually s-ewed up. Too much
praise cannot be given to the ten
nis team. They have for the past
three years under the capable
leadership of “Rusty” Jones,
marched through eveiy season
without a conference defeat. Last
Vear one sgiorts writer de3;ribed
the team as the strongest little
outfit in the country. They un
doubtedly had the toughest sche
dule of any little school in the
nation, and some of the best teams
in the east were beaten.
More dnterest 'has been isihown
this season than in other years.
This alone proves that tennis is
definitely on the upward move on
this camipus. Since this is the last
year for s;me of the boys on the
team, the student body could not
show its appreciation more than
by attending the matches with
more regularity, and in even
greater numbers.

boards as to the date and hours
they will be delivered to the stu
dents. Please avoid unnecessary
embarrasisment by seeing that
your account is settled both with

of pictures on 'hand ordered' by
students. Please take these out at
your earliest convenience. There
are also 'a few more interesting

About the same time as the 1938
Phipsicli comes off the press, the
staff for the 1939 annual will

are interested in working on next
year’s Phipsicli will attend the
next meeting, whicih will be an
