12                      MINUTES


  A motion prevailed that the Finance Committee report
be received and adopted. By further motion it was decided
to readjust the report of the Auditing Committee  and
Treasurer's Report to include all appropriations to the
close of the convention.
  A motion prevailed that we adjourn, to meet the last
Thursday in June 1918.
                  MRS. E. S. WOODSON,
                                             President.
                  MRS. SOPHRONIA ELDRIDGE,
                                             Secretary.


ANNUAL ADDRESS OF PRESIDENT--MRS. EDNA
                     WOODSON
  Again through divine Providence we find ourselves at
the end of our convention year.
  Never before has life's problems loomed so perplexing
before us.  Yet never before id the path of duty lie so
straight before us. Never before has there been greater
need of Christians showing their true colors than today.
There may be many duties confronting us and many sac-
rifices to be made, but we will not be expected to do but
one day's work at a time just to meet the various prob-
lems as they arise.
  I am glad also to know we will not be expected to solve
these various problems in their entirety-the solution will
be with a higher power, and  many obscure things may
never see the light of day in our generation.
  Some think the end of time is approaching very rapidly.
Ask me what I think I answer I do not know.  It is writ-
ten: Matt. 24: 42-36, "Watch therefore, for ye know not
on what day your, Lord cometh, but know  this, if the
master of the house had known in what watch the thief,
was coming he would have watched, and would not have
suffered his house to be broken thru. Therefore be ye also
ready, for in an hour when ye think not the Son of Man
cometh.
  Your God is calling you.  The cause of Christ is calling
you.  Let volunteers responds. Yea, mean must, under the
influence of prayer, be persuaded to lay aside their preju-
dices and their indifference and become soldiers of the
cross.
