Rev. Henderson N. Miller, Ph. D., now pursuing a special course at the Chicago Seminary, has been called to the pastorate at Middle Point, Ohio, and has accepted. Dr. Miller was the former president of Mont Amoena Seminary, North Carolina. Thus is sung again the same old song. Even a post graduate course North opens the way to remaining there.
