The colored teachers of Voca cational Agriculture of Districl No 3, composed of Henderson Van Zandt, Navarre, Smith and Cherokee Counties met at the Henderson County Training School at Saint Paul on Decem- ber 8th for their regular Winter conference. The session was held under the direction of Prof. J. C. McAdams, Itinerant teach- er trainer of Prairie View Col- lege The meeting was deemed high- Iy successful. From the many items that were up for discussion the following objectives were set up as a minimun for the coming year; That each teacher introduce at least 500 pure bred baby chicks in his community That each teacher beautify his school cam- pus That each teacher construct two modern poultry houses. That teachers introduce one pure bred sire. That each teacher enter a team in the District and State judging contest, The following officials repre sented their respective schools in the conference. Prof. R. C. Fisher, Athens; M A. Hampton, Troupe; S V. Pierce, Chandler; S. J Ross, Kerens; J W Smoth- ers and A. H. Jones Malakoff week by Evangelist R, G Fraser and wife, came to a close with the evening service Sunday. The meeting continued over a period of eight days, during which time the church goers of the city were treated to a series of uplifting and inspiring sermons which were generously accompanied by scriptural quotations. Rev. Fra- ser's every message was based entirely on the Bible and he ad- herred strictly to his text on each occasion. Those who neglected to attend these services and to hear the messages of this able minister, surely passed up a golden oppor- tumty. It was ith afeeling of regret that these fine people were permitted to depart, but as they go they are assured of the addi- tion of many admiring friends in Malakoff who shall be pleased to welcome them, should they again chance to pass this way, Rev. and Mrs. Fraser left early Monday morning for Green-i ville where they expect to corn-: plete arrangements for a meet ing, soon to begin in the state of Alabama.
