NEW YORK - The next convention of the Luther League of New York State will be held at Albany on November 12, holding morning and afternoon sessions only, which will be largely devoted to business. The short session is to give delegates the opportunity to attend both the State and national conventions. New York District.

--The delegates of the City League paid their annual

visit to the Wartburg Orphan Farm School, in Mt. Vernon, N. Y., on Saturday, June 22. The meeting was called to order at 3.30 p. m., and after addresses of welcome and music by the Wartburg Band, Director

Dr. Berkemeier took the delegates on a tour of inspection of the grounds. Many new features in this interesting home were noted and explained. Supper was served by the "Wartburg Family" to more than 100 Leaguers and their friends. Brooklyn District.

-The Brooklyn District Luther League held a successful convention in Christ's Church, Freeport, L, I., Rev. Karkan, pastor. It was the best convention held for years, both as to attendance and enthusiasm. The program was carried out promptly and successfully. Christ's Luther League entertained at supper. Long will this convention be remembered. The next District League convention will be held in St. John's Courch, Richmond Hill, Rev. Benner, pastor. Albany and Susquehanna District.

---About 75 delegates, representing nearly that number of Leagues associated with the Lutheran churches of the Albany and Susquehanna district, comprising the territory extending from Binghamton to Pittsfield, Mass., were in attendance at the eighth convention or the Luther League of the district, held with the League of the local church, with sessions morning, afternoon and evening. Much interest was manifested by the local church and the sessions were well attended and greatly enjoyed.

At the morning session, Rev. H. D. Hayes, of Cobleskill, conducted the devotional service, Rev. J. C. Trauger delivered an address of welcome, and President William Eck, of Albany, responded. Reports of officers showed the total membership of the Leagues of the district to be 1,100, and on the increase, and

every other phase of the League's life indicated health and growth.

At the afternoon session the following were

elected to the offices: President, Mr. Bernard H. Brohm, Rensselaer; vice-president, Mr.. A. E. Wiard, Seward; recording secretary, Miss Minnie Rector, Binghamton; corresponding-statistical secretary, Mr. Clyde Ball, Pittsfield; treasurer, Mr. John H. Lehman, Pittsfield.

Two excellent' addresses followed, one upon “The Coming Bi-Annual Convention," by James M. Reynolds, of Valatie, and the second upon “Lutheran Ideals Versus the Growing Spirit in the Church Today," by Rev. H. E. Snyder, of Kingston Mr. Reynolds outlined the programme of the approaching convention and urged all to attend, as it would be found very profitable. Mr. Snyder pointed out some of the tendencies of the churches of today as dangerous pitfalls, and showed the difference between these teachings and the practice of the Lutheran Church in teaching the fundamental and unchanging truths of the Christian religion. He urged all Luther League members to familiarize themselves with the teachings of our Church, and to keep themselves true and loyal to her ideals.

At the evening session the devotional service was conducted by Rev. Obenschain and Rev. Deitz. The address was delivered by Rev. William M. Baum, D.D., of Canajoharie, on Destruction and Construction," applying the theme to the work in League and Church. His address was inspiring and helpful and was very well received. Special music for this session was furnished by the local choir, assisted by Mrs. John Martin and Miss Rebecca Trauger in a duet, and Mr. John Canning with the violin.

-The Luther League of the Trinity Church, Amsterdam, N. Y., is mourning the loss of two of its members in less than a month. The death of Miss Clara Gerling occurred on the 15th of June, after an illness of about four months. She was twenty-nine years old on the day of her death. She was one of the most faithful members of the Luther League and the Church. At the time of her death Miss Gerling was treasurer of the · League and a teacher in the Sunday school. Miss Meriam Fritch, daughter of the Rev. and Mrs. G. W. Fritch, pastor of this Church, was drowned while in bathing at Caroga Lake, N. Y., July 11. Miss Fritch was enjoying camp life at the lake with a number of Sorority girls of the local High School. She was in her nineteenth year. Miss Fritch was also a teacher in the Sunday school and a member of the choir. The funeral service was conducted by the Rev. Dr. Baum, of Cana joharie, assisted by the Rev. A. J. Rudisil, of Johnstown, and the Rev. G. E. Hipsley, of Red Hook, and the Rev. A. Grob, of this city. The fourteenth chapter of St. John was read as the girls had read and discussed that chapter the night before the sad accident, and Miss Fritch passed the remark that she wasn't long for this world.

The first pastorate of the first pastor of St. Mark's Mission, Mansfield, Ohio, Rev. B. B. thl closed with an impressive communion on Sunday, June 30, after six years of successful activity. The pastor leaves to take up the work at Nokomis, Ill., August 1.
