The Board ordered a call meeting of the church to be held after services Sunday, Dec 15th to elect a Nominating Committee to nominate officers to be elected for the ensuring year at the annual meeting of the church in January 1908.

Mrs. Alice Daniels addressed the Board in reference to a movement to be arranged by the Sociological Society of this city to give entertainment after Prohibition went into effect.  The design being to have places of entertainment opened in different sections of the city when bar rooms were closed.
