Scope and Contents

Stenotype proceedings from the Twelfth National Convention of the Young Women's Christian Associations of the United States of America.

Worship services, devotional exercises and addresses are made by both YWCA of the U.S.A. members and special guests. Proceedings also follow convention business, motions for resolutions and actions, and elections and nominations of positions. Discussion and addresses concern social issues of the time including racism and a resolution on lynching violence; the present economic and unemployment situation; and the role of Christianity in the social agenda of the YWCA of the U.S.A.
