FOREWORD

THIS program is the culmination of the first attempt

in America to hold three Methodist Episcopal Con-

ferences at the same time and place. No amount

of effort has been spared to make this event memorable.

The Conference Program Committees of the West Ohio,

the Ohio, and the North-East Ohio Conferences, the Presi-

dent of Ohio Wesleyan University, the three district super-

intendents and four entertaining pastors have been organized

into one committee with Bishop Theodore S. Henderson,

resident Bishop, as Chairman. The program presented

herewith is the work of that committee.

The invitation of the trustees of Ohio Wesleyan to the three

conferences to hold their sessions in Delaware was first

approved by Bishop Henderson who in turn presented the

matter to the Area Council with recommendations that the

invitation be accepted. The Chamber of Commerce, and

all churches of Delaware united unanimously in supporting

the invitation to the Annual Conferences in September 1926.

As a result of this action, the city of Delaware has been

organized into one General Entertainment Committee with

the President of the Chamber of Commerce as its Chairman.

There are eight sub-committees. Through this central

organization plans have been formulated for the entertain-

ment of the three Annual Conferences, the Laymen's Asso-

ciations, the Junior Laymen's Associations and the Women's

Organizations.

It is the sincere desire of all who have had a share in the

arrangements thus far, to make this the first Tri-Conference

session of the Methodist Episcopal Churches of Ohio a

success.

Karl P. Meister

Secretary and Treasurer of the Program and

General Entertainment Committees.

DELAWARE AND METHODISM

By PROF. ROLLIN H. WALKER

It is a great thing for a church when it begins to have shrines that

symbolize the faith and heroism of the fathers. Delaware is such a

shrine.

When a committee of preachers was sent from the Ohio Confer-

ence sitting at Urbana, to decide whether Delaware would be a good

place to start a college, like Caleb and Joshua of old they came

back with a favorable report. But when they came to pay for the

livery rig which they had used it was found that only one among

them had money enough to meet it. Their poverty did not daunt

them, however, and they persuaded the Conference, whose members

were as poor as themselves, to embark in the adventure.

The building in which the school was started is the frame struc-

ture immediately behind the college library. Here for fifty years

William G. Williams taught Greek, and here until the erection of

Merrick Hall, L. D. McCabe with Celtic fire and daring taught

philosophy.

At 294 North Sandusky Street one sees the home of Edward

Thomson, the first president of the university, and afterward Bishop

of the Methodist Episcopal Church. He was a descendant of the

poet Thomson who wrote "The Seasons". Around his name many

traditions gathered, for he strangely gripped the imagination of the

students.

At 57 Oak Hill Avenue is the home of President Frederick

Merrick, where he wore out the carpet by his bedside praying for

the Ohio Wesleyan University. He was a New England Presby-

terian Puritan touched with the old-fashioned Methodist fire, and

the combination of granite and heat made an extraordinary character.

The central building on campus is Gray Chapel, the money

for which was for the most part raised by President James W.

Bashford, in small sums and with great difficulty, before the days

when people became accustomed to giving liberally to education.

One evening in the gloaming President Bashford, pointing to its

beautiful tower, said to a professor, "Every stone in that building

represents a prayer." The chapel auditorium was the scene of the

marvelous evangelistic meetings among the students that Bashford

in his simple and unforced fashion was accustomed to conduct. And

here also he gave the great monthly lectures that are outstanding

memories among the old students.

As an illustration of the love in which the college has been held

by its children may be mentioned the portrait of Browning, by

Moscheles, which hangs in the library reading room. Dr. Frank

W. Gunsaulus saw it in Europe, and was told by one who knew

Browning that he deemed it the best portrait of the poet in existence.

For what price could it be purchased? asked Gunsaulus. The answer

was, "A thousand dollars." "Pack it up," said he, "and ship it to

the Ohio Wesleyan University, at Delaware." And after that he

went out and earned the money to pay for it by lecturing.

Gunsaulus' own wonderful portrait, by Nyholm, the Swedish artist,

hangs near it in the reading room.

The old church which stood on the site of the present William

Street Church is the place where the two college friends, Gunsaulus

and Bishop McDowell, felt so profoundly the grip of the evangelistic

appeal.

The Methodist Conferences of Ohio elect the majority of the trus-

tees of the Ohio Wesleyan University, and hence can determine its

policy. The college is a sacred trust that has been handed down to

them by the great men of the past.

Of national interest to lovers of temperance is the fact that in

the old William Street Church was first organized the Women's

Christian Temperance Union, a society that, under God, has been

one of the most powerful influences in driving out the legalized saloon.
