Secretary be increased to $150. Mr. Alfred Lee moved to that effect. Motion was seconded by Miss Kwong and passed by a unanimous vote.

II. Organization.

(a). Half Time Secretary for Eastern Department. Mr. Frank W. Price's services were put at our disposal by the Board of Foreign Missions of the Presbyterian Church. It was moved in the Board meeting that a vote of acceptance be cast. The motion was unanimously carried and a letter of acceptance should be written to Mr. Edward Smith of that Mission Board and also a letter of invitation to Mr. Price to become Associate Secretary to the Eastern Department.

(b). Secretary for Women's Department. Arrangements have been made by the officers of the past year with the National Board of the Y. W. C. A. that one woman secretary should be put at the disposal of the Women's Department of our Association. Other detailed arrangements should be made by the Women's Department.

(c). Half Time Associate Secretary for Middle West Department. It was agreed that a half time secretary should be employed for the Middle West Department. Mr. T. C. Shen, Chairman of the Middle West Department, was strongly in favor of this idea. It was moved by Mr. Alfred Lee to that effect and the motion was carried. The Board further agreed to provide one-third of the expenses including salary and travel of the halftime secretary to be employed for the Middle West Department.

(d). Local Committeemen. The Board agreed to instruct the chairmen of the different departments to appoint local committeemen at the earliest possible moment. The local committeemen of the past year should be responsible until the new local committeemen are accepted. Time should be allowed for the members of the different localities to exercise their prerogative. If they fail to do so, the chairmen of the different boards have the right to appoint.

AFTERNOON SESSION, 3:00 p. m.

III. Program.
(a). Bible Study Classes.

The Board was unanimously of the opinion that the old-fashioned classes should not be encouraged next year. The problem with which we were concerned was to discuss how to elevate the moral standard of our country. Therefore, the Board deemed that it be necessary to appoint a committee to formulate a number of questions concerning religious as well as moral problems of our country.

The Bible should be internationally and impartially studied. In the second place, it should be our duty to introduce to our students the discussion groups. Certainly it should also be our duty to exercise our personal influence to lead men to churches on Sundays.

(b). Service.

1. Concrete service such as the meeting of students giving reception new students, etc.

2. To make friends. It should be the duty of the American secretaries of our Association to make connections with American homes. It has been deemed wise to invite students individually rather than in big groups.

3. Summer Employment. Our secretaries should make connections early in the spring so as to help as many of our students as possible to secure summer employment to get experience as well as some means for their next year's studies.

4. Welfare Work. Work for our compatriots in the different Chinatown districts should be greatly encouraged. As far as possible everything should be worked out locally. The Central Executive Board of our Association should be only a promoting agency.

5. Magazines. The Board agreed to continue the policy of last year, that is, to publish our paper eight times a year. A committee on publications should be appointed by the President with the approval of the Board.

6. Introduction for our students to American Institutions. As far as possible our Secretaries should help our students to get connected with some American institutions or commercial firms so as to get valuable experience because our students wish to get many more things than they can get in their schools.

IV. DEFINITION OF RELATIONSHIP WITH THE FRIENDLY RELATIONS COMMITTEE. Mr. E. Yelton, Associate Secretary of the Friendly Relations Committee, was invited to discuss with us our relationship with the Friendly Relations Com

mittee. Our Association preferred that the Friendly Relations Committee should have one of the five votes of the Central Executive Board and to send a man to audit the accounts of our Association. We would appreciate the help of the Friendly Relations Committee in every respect. We wished to have a clear understanding especially with regard to finances. We wished only to get a certain amount of outright appropriations every year and we ourselves would pay all the expenses incurred in the Central Office.

V. BUDGET. Mr. Alfred Lee, Treasurer, and Mr. K. C. Lee, General Secretary, submitted to the Central Executive Board a tentative budget. After careful correction, it was passed by the Board.

K. C. LEE,

Ex-General Secretary.

REPORT OF EX-TREASURER

July 24, 1920. Dear Fellow Members:

As the present academic year has come to an end, it is my duty to submit to you a report of the accounts of this year (August 1919—July 1920), showing the conditions of the treasury of the Association at the end of this administrative period. I would have presented my report at the Silver Bay Conference had it not been due to the fact that several important accounts and statements could not be submitted to me at that time.

In order to make my report as brief and yet as clear as possible, I wish to classify it under two headings: (1) an analysis of the receipts and expenditures of the Association from August 4, 1919, to July 24, 1920; (2) a brief summary of the results of this year's financial campaign and membership dues.

(1) A. Receipts Appropriation ....

...................$1,150.00 Balance from last year (including sums turned in later) 2,261.79 Membership fees:
