26                       MINUTES


cieties should also be formed to give chance for wholesome
social life and advice.
  4. Education along all lines that would make for better
health, cleanliness, economy and general efficiency should
be given.
  Practical help in sending children to day and night
schools, also parents, so they may be properly prepared for
business of life should be the interest of all.  Churches,
civic, charitable and social clubs should all lend a hand, yea,
a united hand, to help our strange brothers and sisters get
a sure and certain start along the right road.
  We may not idly or indifferently leave this work to the
other fellow, for what concerns one single member of our
race, concerns all, and we should take pride and unbounded
pleasure in making each newcomer feel we are anxious to
do all in our power to give him the chance he so much de-
sires and has risked so much to obtain.
  Be it further resolved, That as a definite and tangible
work for the members of this convention that we return to
our local societies with the endorsement of this convention
to make this matter a definite part of the work of each so-
 ciety for the coming year, and use our influence to awaken
 our entire community to the importance of the work to be
done.
               Respectfully submitted,
                       MRS. DOVIE CLARK,
                       MRS. LUTIE MAE TUSH,
                       MRS. OPHELIA ROGERS,
                       MRS. GEORGIANNA WHITE,
                       MRS. GRACE SMITH SLADE,
                                             Secretary.
                     RESOLUTIONS
  We, the Committee on Resolutions, wish  to submit the
 following report:
   Resolved, That we urge upon the local societies the
 carrying out of the Resolution on the Southern Exodus.
   Resolved, That we urge each local society to hold at
 least one Temperance Rally and that in convention now as-
 sembled we declare ourselves for "Nation-Wide Prohibi-
 tion."
   Resolved, That we put ourselves on record as endorsing
 the Red Cross, and so far as possible urge all our members
 to affiliate with the Red Cross.
