May 17th, 18th and 23th 'Ra11j Days for
. Ajcock llonumeat.
To the People of North Caroli
na: It has been determined to
haVe a quick, vigorous campaign
in behalf of the monument " to
Charles B. Aycock . "
All the energy and, interest of
the people will be concentrated in
a great three-day rally to tee
cause, Friday and Saturday, May
17th aud 18th, with a final effort
on Monday, May 20th.
The dates are auspicious- May
17th and 18th for all the work
that can be done, with the con
cluding effort on May 20th. May
20th is a legal holiday, a patriotic
dav in North Carolina history ;
and how better can. our people
show their patriotism than Ly
honoring the' memory of this
great North Carolinian?
Let the canvas be organized,
promptly, thoroughly, systemati
cally, in every town and coun
ty. There should not be one or
two canvassers, but a dozen or
more in every place; and let the
gifts be liberal. No county
should attempt to raise less than
$1,000, and the larger counties
much more. We should get $50,-
000, not only enough for a monu
ment, but for a permanent educa
tional memorial. -
North Carolina has heretofore
complained that her great men
are not recogonizsd abroad ; but
if great Virginians, for example,
are known the Nation over, it is
because first of all Virginia has
cherished their memory. The
Nation appreciates Ayoook; let
North Carolina show, that she
does. We shall honor ourselves
in so doing.
Let every North Carolinian, re
gardlesB of party or creed, help
the State honor itself by honoring
its great "Educational Gover
nor. ',' And let each county sebk

The twenty-five year period dur

The designs for the new coins
have not yet beeu fully decided
upon. There is a plan to have a

still probably have an escolioped

three-cent piece will be larger
than the nickel and the half-cent
piece smaller than the dime. The

hriflf hnt mn9 inkerestinir
dress from Rev. G H Gerberding,
professor of practical heology in
the Chicago Lutheran- Semiuary
and one of the most widely read
authors in the Lutherab Church.
After expressing his treasure at
being present at this Eession. Dr.
Gerberding congratulated the Sy
nod rlpon the aotive interest it is
displaying in the causey of Chris
tian education which tie considers
fundamental to alljg' Christian
progress. Iu Dr Gsrberdiug'B
view the Protestant churches to
day face four dangers, namely,
the prevalence of agnostic, mate
rialistic unbelief, the wave of
crime which has followed, in its
wake, the spread ol: an utterly
Godless socialism and the en
croachments of RiAnism. No
weak-kneed Prottfetism will
suffice to cope wiih 'these dangers.
There must be a return to the
faith wbick-saved Europe in the
anism is to take advantage of the
opportunity thus afforded the
cause of education must be
ooked to with most dil'gent care.
On motion of Dr. R C Hol
and the Synod adopted resolu
tions tendering thankB to Presi
dent C. B. King of Elizabeth
College for the delightful musical
and social entertainment enjoyed
on Friday evening, expressing the
gratification of Synod at the
splendid work now being done by
the college, and heartily com
mending the institution to all
Lutheran parents haviDg daugh
ter to send to college. As the
ast action of Synod before ad
ournment in the afternoon, Rev.
R. A. Goodman of Mount Pleas
ant offered resolutions thanking
the congregation, choir and pas
tor of St Mark's for the abuud
ant and cordial hospitality with
whioh Synod haB been entertain
ed, the newspapers for the clear
and acourate acoounts of proceed
ings which have been published;
the Greater Charlotte Club for
the pleasure derived from the
trolley ride and all others to
whom . Synod is indebted for
kindness. These resolutions were
adopted by a rising vote.
Iu pursuance of a resolution
adopted Friday President Kin-
ard Announced the appointment
of icommission to confer with
the South Carolina Synod unon
the jeint establishment of a col
lage for women. This commis-
siorf will consist of Rev. R. L
Pattersou, J L.JIcrgan and O,
W. Adderholt and laymen C. M.
Thompson, J. S. Efird and C.
M. Van Poole.
A number of amendments to
the constitution of Synod were
1 1 ..
presented oy a committee ap
pointed at the 1911 session.
m . -i i a
lnese.wnn two exceptions were
chuny in the interest of greateT
clearness in the document. One
of the important amendments
abolished the office of statistica
secretary handing his duties over
to the regular secretary ; the other
provided that ministers who
have ceased active minicteria
work shall be carried upon the
rolls of Synod only in cases where
the action has been occasioned
providentially, aud further tha
any minister wno engages upon
secular occupation to the negleo
of pastoral work shall be dropped
from the Synod's roll. !
Synod decided to accept an in
vitation from St; John's Cabar
rus congregation to hold its 1913
session in that church. It is of
interesrto note that this country
congregation nas furuiBhed more l-
ministers than any other in
the NoTth Carolina Synod, that it
was one of the three oldest Luth
eran churches in this region hay-r
ing bean founded in 1773 and
that in all human probability
three of its sons will come before
Synod next yeir for ordination.
These facts make the acceptance
of the invitation at this time pe
culiarly appropriate . - -
Synod throughout the day gave
close attention to the reading of
a considerable number of reports
from standing committees. The
approaoh of services' in home
churches which could not be pass
ed ovei caused Boniewhat of a df-
ad-fptetioB the ranks of the body
but this did not cause Synod to
relax its acute attention to the
business going forward. Wher
ever reports included more than
a single feature the body actrd
upon them item by item, this
neoessitating intelligent under
standing by the entire body be
fore any matter was acted upon.
Among the items of interest re
Bolved upon might be mentioned
the determination to hold in July
a Sunday school normal jointly
with the Tennessee Synod at Le
noir College, Hickory, and the
appointment of Rev. Charles
B. King as archivist of Synod.
Speaking of the contest over
the. location of the school the
Concord Times says:
Mount Aja-ena Seminary will
be rebuilt at Mount Pleasant.
This action was decided upon at
the afternoon session of the Luth
eran ynod in Charlotte - Friday
by tiracticaJLv unanfjulous vote,

been the one absorbing question
not only among Lutherans of this
section but the people generally.
No sooner had the smoke died
away from the burning building,
which went up in flames Novem
ber 30th cf last year, than there
arose a movement to locate tne
school elsewhere. A special
meeting of the Synod waa called

Five towus took the matter up
ani made bids for the school. A
committee was appointed for the
purpose of selecting a location
aud a spirited contest was started.
A!l of the five towns, Salisburv,
Laudis, Lexington, China Grove
and Mount Pleasant, made at
tractive offers of suitable sites
and a sum of money. Citizens of
the towns have made vigorous
campaigns to raise iunus ana
great interest was aroused. Soon
after the fight was started it was
known bythose familiar with the
situation that the contest was be
tween Salisbury and Mount
The committee visited the va
rious places and decided bya vote
of 5 to 4 to locate the school in
Salisbury. This caused all of the
other towns to drop out with the
exception of Mouut Pleasant.
Tha citizens there refused to be
disoouraged by the adverse report
and kept their courageous efforts
to the last, knowing that the
committee's renort would have to
be passed upon by the Synod and
that the matter would be finally
disposed of by thit body.
Mr. Heilig read a detailed finan
cial statement showing receipts for
the past year. This paper showed
