BAPTISTS END THEIR SESSION
---------------------
Adopt Informal Plan To Seek More Time For Considering Problems
---------------------
BIRMINGHAM, Feb. 7 (AP) Closing their business sessions with adoption of informal plans to seek more time for consideration of school problems at the meeting of the Southern Baptist convention in May, delegates to the midwinter convention of the southern Baptist education association were en route to their homes throughout the south today.
Addition to deciding to seek more time to present needs of denominational schools, the delegates also decided to compile data regarding conditions of Baptist schools to present the general conference.
J. W. Cammack, president of Averitt college, was re-elected president of the association at the closing session and Dr. Edgar Godbold, executive secretary of the Missouri State Baptist convenient, was renamed vice president. A. R. Bond, of Birmingham, was elected secretary-treasurer, succeeding H. H. Clarke, president-elect of Judson college, Marion, Ala.
Naming of the next meeting place of the association was postponed until the Baptist convention in May by action of the executive committee, which includes in addition to the active officers, Dr. W. O. Carver, of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and Dr. T. Warren, president of the Carson-Newman college.
Pleas for attractive construction of denominational schools so as to attract desirable students and for higher salaries, group insurance and graduate school training for teachers were made at yesterday afternoons session.
