Rev. Hartley Chosen to New Position

Former Greene Countian New Superintendent of Hamilton Memorial Home.

Rev. W. T. Hartley, who has been pastor of the Dravosburg Methodist Episcopal church for a year and was reappointed at the conference at Blairsville last month has resigned the pastorate of the local church to accept the position as superintendent of the Francis Hamilton Memorial home.

Mr. Hartley has been in charge of the home for several months also filling the pulpit of the local church, but a few days agohe was elected to the superintendency, which he has accepted, his resignation at the church being accepted by the board of the church only after much deliberation.

Mr. Hartley has been one of the most popular ministers of the Methodist church in this borough and during his pastorate the church has been built up greatly, many improvements have been made under his directionand he has been well liked both by the members of the church and other residents of the borough. He was elected to the superintendency of the home only after the members of the board of directors found that by his management the home would be carefully lokked after, this being proven in the short time that Mr. Hartley had charge of the home in connection with the work of his own church. Rev. J. A. Allison has been selected to fill the vacancy at the church and will occupy the pulpit on next Sunday. Mr. Allison comes from Bentleyville and is well known among the members of the local church. - McKeesport News
