Excerpt from Democracy in Earnest, Southern Sociological Congress, 1916-1918
Owing to the unusual conditions prevailing during the period of the war, the Southern Sociological Congress did not issue a report in 1916 and 1917. From the many papers read at the last three conventions, the editor has tried to select, impartially, those which, combined in one volume of this size, would express most satisfactorily the ideals and work that the Congress desires at present to emphasize. The exclusion of any paper should not be taken to signify that it is lacking in general merit.
In order to make this volume as popular as possible and to keep the price within the membership fee of three dollars, the Governing Board ordered that the ever-increasing list of members be omitted from this report.
Inasmuch as no report was issued during the two years that Governor Brough was President, his photograph appears in the frontispiece of this book, together with that of the present President, Bishop Bratton.
The Constitution as revised at Blue Ridge in 1917 is printed for the first time herein.
