house of bishops of the general con

bishops in dealing during much of
the day with recommendations on
prayer book revision. As the first
recommendation was taken up there

Johnson, bishop of Colorado, was

Distribution of the printed report
embracing recommendations agreed
upon in the pre-convention confer
ences of bishops revealed the fact
that they favor omission of the
word obey' from responses of the
ceremony, but do not want the
phrase "and with all my wordly
goods I thee endow'.' stricken from
the bridegroom's promises.
These recommendations did not
come before the bishops for action
but doubtless will be reached in
today's deliberations. The belief is
strong that the plan to drop the
word obey from responses of the
bride in the marriage ceremony will
prevail. A fight is likely on the
proposal to omit the endowing
promise for the bridegroom, on the
ground that it is not literally and
legally true that he does so.
Adoption of these or any other
prayer book revislons'will not make
them effective. Rules of the church
require that such revisions be
adopted at two successive conven
tions before becoming operative.
Suffragan Vote Revived.
At the afternoon session the house
of bishops completely reversed its
previous action in denying votes to
euffragan bishops, this time voting
favorably on both amendments by

the matter up, William C. Brown,
chairman, had ruled that a two-

which would have extended the

that the apostles' creed was too

not consi-aered a requirement for

delegates at the auditorium was
that Monday was 101. As a re
suit the onlv thing that went at
fever heat was the weather.
There were seveiwi-casualties due
to the heat. The first was in the
house of bishops, where Mercury
brought about a state of coma so
that even the keenest, toward the
end of the long day's session, did
not know exactly what was taking
place. It came time to vote upon
the question- of a revision In th
service of baptism. The paragraph
under consideration included the
phrase "all the covetous desires of
the flesh." Aprinter's error allowed
it to appear in the report "all the
courteous desires- of the flesh." And
the house of bishops passed it as
The women's auxiliary scored a
casualty. The very dignified and
capable chairman (or should it be
printed 'chairwoman'?) of the com
mittee on dispatch of business,
Miss Eva Corey of Massachusetts,
was making an announcement af the
close of the sweltering afternoon
session. The intense heat probably
took precedence in her own mind
over the order tor tne nay aooui
which she was supposed to be con
cerned. In giving notice of the
meeting of the executive board she
said that it would be held in the

The only persons in the house of
bishops who seemed to be' comfort
able despite the heat was the Rt.
Rev. William Hall Moreland, bishop
of Sacramento. The bishop was at
tired in a cream-colored silk pongee
suit with clerical vest to match. No
dull black nor sweltering purple
for him on a hot day like yesterday.
The deputies who brought only
their straw hats were in luck yes

of bishops (the house of deputies

Several bright spots appeared in
the mass meeting in the interest of
the nation-wide campaign the other
night. Bishop Wise furnished
one of them. "What- was the first
question asked by our wounded sol
diers when they were brought from
the front?" he said. "They did not
think of themselves. They were
carried back, some with an eye out,
some with a leg or an arm gone,
seme with their jaw shot off. They
did not think of themselves," said
the bishop in his fervorful way.
"Each and every one asked the ques
tion, 'Did we take our objective?' "
A slip of the tongue, as it were. .
Dr. George Craig Stewart, rector
of St. Luke's church, Evanston, 111
(near'Chicago), told a good one. He
and the Rev. Cyrus Townsend
Brady, of literary fame, were on a
fishing trip when Dr. Brady told of
a wedding he had in thedays of
hobble skirts (yes, fads did prevail
at times in former generations).
When he was rector of St. George's
church, the ' fashionable- parish of
Kansas City, Mo., a couple came to
him to be married. At the proper
point in the service the clergyman
told the couple to kneel down. "It
is a physical impossibility, whis
pered the bride. "It is a spiritual
necessity, -replied the priest, and
material considerations must give
And the material gave way," said
the Rev. Cyrus Townsend Brady to
the Rev. George Craig Stewart.
To look at him one would not sus
pect that the venerable- and Right
Rev. Boyd Vincent, bishop of south
ern Ohio, was a wag. At the afore
mentioned - mass meeting Bishop
Wise out-slassed a Billy Sunday in
his very energetic (and apt) ges
ticulations and emphatic manner
isms. He drove his points borne, as
it were, with his fists.
Someone was commenting on the
meeting and saying that it was not
entirely successful. "Well, Bishop

Miss Grace Lindley of New Tork,
for the past three years executive
secretary of the Woman's Auxiliary
to the presiding bishop and council
of the Episcopal church, was unani
mously re-elected to the office at the
auxiliary meeting yesterday after
noon in the auditorium. The office
for which Miss Lindley was chose
is the highest in the power of the
auxiliary to bestow, as the body has
no national president.
Members of the executive board
of the auxiliary will be elected at
the Wednesday' afternoon session
and nominations are already being
made. Nominations for provincial
members, made by a committee, fol
low: Province one, Mrs. Payson, of
Maine; province two, Mrs. Phelps,
of New Jersey; province three, Mrs.
Adams, of Pittsburg; province lour,
Miss Weed, of .Florida; province
five, Mrs. Butler, of Chicago; pro
vince ape, Mrs. Prince, of Minnesota;
province seven, Mrs. Dix, of Mis
souri; province eight. Miss Magill,
of Los Angeles. Nominations are
still open for members at large, and
eight will be elected.
Assistants are Elected.
Immediately following her re
election Miss Lindley renominated
her assistant secretaries, who were
elected. Miss Adelaide Case, of the
Teachers Training college in New
York, chosen as training secretary,
is the only new member of the
group. Others re-elected from pre
vious service are: Miss Emily TU-
lotson. educational secretary; Miss
Laura Boyer, assistant educational
secretary: Mrs. George Biller, or
ganizing secretary; Mrs. G. K. B.
Wade, supply secretary; Miss Ellen
I. Flanders, office secretary.
Invitations for the next triennial
meeting of the auxiliary were ex
tended by Rhode Island, which
would have the session come to
Providence, and Pennsylvania, which
wants the meeting to be in Phila
delphia. League Question Walts.
Animated discussion arose over a
resolution having to do with the
auxiliary's stand in regard to the
Church Service league and present
ed by Mrs. Elizabeth Sibley Robins,
various women expressing fear that
the league may in time grow to
such proportions that it will swal
low up the auxiliary. The matter
was deferred and will be taken up
in at the- auxiliary meeting to
be held next Monday morning.
The hitch came up in connection
with the last section of the second
half of the resolution which would
allow the Church Service league
to make its own plans, suggesting
that informal committees or com
missions be made if the league so
desires. Parts of the resolution in
cluded the following sentiment
That the auxiliary continue its
support of and co-operation in the
Church Service league and support
its principle of continued growth;
that the league develop as a league
of workers including men and wom
en; that parishes form organizations
or federations, according to the need
of the parish; that growth of the
dioceses be patiently awaited.

An Important point of the remark
is the fact that Bishop Overs is a
man of decidedly portly build.
Adoption by the Episcopal general
convention of a recommended new
canon would materially elevate the
position of deaconess In the church
and would retain, instead of bar
ring, married deaconesses. This rec
ommendation is made by a joint
commission which has thoroughly
investigated the matter in the past
three years. It proposes a radical
departure from established rules of
Heretofore there has been strong
sentiment among leaders of the
church against extension of greater
privileges to the deaconesses, lest
these "become a stepping-stone to
the priesthood." The present report
specifically cites the fact that there
is "no purpose to suggest elevation
of deaconesses to the priesthood."
A highly Important principle laid
down in the report is that the dea
coness in being ordained need no
longer dedicate herself to lifelong
service as a celibate. It is etill un
derstood that she shall dedicate her
self to lifelong service, but there is
to be no vow or implied promise of
celibacy." Experience has taught,
it is cited, that In many fields, espe
cially in missionary districts, a mar
ried woman may easily be the most
valued church worker In the com
munity. Under the new order of
things it would be possible for the
wife and mother to gather children
of the community into her home to
receive religious instruction.
Both houses of the convention
yesterday gave recognition to the
need for greater dispatch in dispos
ing of the great mass of business
before them. As a result' both
branches voted to convene at 9:30
A. M. and to continue afternoon ees
sions to 5:30 P. M., lengthening the
working day by one hour. In the
house of bishops a resolution was
introduced asking consent of the
lower house to the plan of having
all joint sessions in the evening. At
present the joint sessions are all
scheduled for the hours 11 A. M. to
