NOW 111 PROSPECT
Board of Home Mission Will Rec-'
omraend Wholesale Reorgan
ization to General Assembly
The Presbyterian Board of Home
Missions, into whose hands Presbyter
ians intrust almost Ji.OOO.OuO a year,
making it one of the largest mission
ary societies in the world, has .lust
made public recommendations which it
will make to the General Assembly of
its church, meeting in Chicago in May.
These recommendations call for a
wholesale reorganization of the board
itself, and are held to be the outcome
of attacks upon it, made last year and
this.. The contention has been between
administration of home mission work
by Presbyteries, each in the local Held
and at little or no cost for secretaries,
o'' by a national body, at what many
holtl to be heavy expense
The board now states that it will in
eifeet surrender its entire commission,
so to speak, to the General Assembly,
and ask for such new assignment of
work at the Assembly seems lit to give
it. At Atlanta last May it was ordered
by the General Assembly to discontinue
I eld secretaries, Mexican and Indian
departments, and a department of
Church ana country lifo as soon as
Practicable. The board thought two or
three years might be suftlcientlv early,
but many Presbyterian leaders thought
otherwise— and said ro. The board now
announces that it will discontinue hll
on June 1 next.
New commissions of work which the
board announces that it will ask the
I h lea go Assembly to give it to do are
social service and work anion* immi
grants. It offers to classify salaries of
ts executive officers, complaint havins
»een ma'le about expenses; to establish
a branch office in some city in the
West, either Chicago or St. Louis; and
to increase its membership to forty, of
whom fifteen shall bo laymen, to the
sented Synods may be repre-

College When 14 Years Old
It is said that Erasmus, when but
a child, astonished his preceptors by
his intimacy with the classics, and
there are other instances of precocity
among men in the church who have
afterwards risen to great heights, but
it remains for a Harrisburg pastor,

THE REV. HENRY W. A. HANSON
connection among Harrisburg clergy
The Rev. Mr. Hanson, who is pas
tor of Messiah Lutheran Church. Sixth
and Eorster streets, entered Roanoke
College, Roanoke, W. Va., at the age
of 14, and after b«lng graduated from
the Southern college, entered the Lu
theran Theological Seminary at Get
tysburg, and was graduated from that
institution when at his majority, and
age at which most candidates for the
ministry are just entering. The early
completion of his theological course
at Gettysburg gave Mr. Hanson en
viable opportunity to devote a few
more y°ars to finishing his course of
studies, and so we find him, following
his Gettysburg graduation, going
ibroad for a two years' course in the
great German university at Lelpsic.
His First Charge
Upon his return to this country to
take up his chosen work, he became
pastor of St. Luke's Lutheran Church,
Pittsburgh, where his success was
oronounced. During his pastorate of
St. Luke's Church, which lasted seven
years, the Rev. Mr. Hanson Increased
the congregation from 150 to 500
members and a new church building
was erected during his administration
in the Smoky City. Mr. Hanson camo
to Messiah church only a year ago,
but already his influence has been lit
tle short of phenomenal, and the
membership of the church has gone
forward by leaps and bounds. In
fact so greatly Increased has the mem
bership become that already plans for
a new church are tentatively com
It would be extremely difficult to
analyze the causes that contribute to
Mr. Hanson's efficiency and popular
ity.' It may be inferred from the ac
count of his scholastic training and
hi# -youthful proficiency as a student
that his forte lies In the mighty In
tellectual appeal of his sermons. Yet
while it is true that the young clergy
man—and he is now but S2 years of
age—does possess a grasp and ac
quaintance with wide areas of thought
and does exhibit a profound knowl
edge of a wide range of subjects i:i
his sermons, it is rather to his per
sonal charm and earnest sincerity thut
may be attributed his remarkable suc
Simple, Direct, Forceful
It is in the fact that his simple, di
rect and forceful sermons ring so tru<»
that will probably be found the secret
of his success oh a pulpiteer, yet by
no means does he hely on his work
as a sermonizer to attract and knit
together his congregations. His so
cial and personal service Is unceasing
and while popular with all classes, ho
has a particular appeal to old folks
and children, a winning charm of
manner and an underlying sincerity
that is mujiifestly free from a m*r»
perfunctory discharge of hifl duties.
