Fortieth Annua! Convention Hell at Benlon
Myron I. Low Again President,
Generally considered the most
successful gathering of its kind in
the history of the county was the
fortieth annual convention of the
Columbia County Sunday School
Association, held at Orangeville
on Thursday and Friday of last
week. The attendance was large,
practically every section of the
county being represented, and the
addresses aud discussions that
marked the sessions proved both in
teresting and highly instructive.
Particularly pleasing to the work
ers in this field was the report of
the statistical secretary, which
showed this county second to but
one other Pennsylvania county in
point of percentage of population
enrolled in the Sunday schools.
This report may be briefly summa
rized as follow.:
Denominations, 14; number of
schools, 139; number of ever
green schools, 123; number of
cradle roll, 98; cradle roll members,
2,052; number of home depart
ments, 59; number of home depart
ment members, 1,491; number of
officers and teachers, 1,844; num
ber of scholars, 14,722, total enroll
ment, 20, 149. This is an increase
of 2,000 in the enrollment since
last year. Last year 46 per cent.
of the population of tfce county was
enrolled in the county; this year it
is 50 per cent.

to lead the Association for another
year. Other officers were chosen
