LYNCHBURG IS REJOICING.
Town Glad Church Is Not to Change Status of College.
Special to The Washington Herald.
Lynchburg, Va., March 30 - The victory won by Dr. W. W. SMITH to-day in the Baltimore conference of the Methodist Church, which means that no effort is to be made to change the present status of the Randolph-Macon Woman’s College here, was received joyously in the city, as Lynchburg looks upon this school as being as much a Lynchburg institution as a Methodist school.
When Dr. SMITH left home this morning for Roanoke, he was by no means confident that the resolution endeavoring to have the church take direct charge of the college would be defeated, and the unanimous vote against it came rather as a surprise to those conversant with conditions.
