She was the first woman to be seated as a deputy at a General Convention — and the last until 1970.Editor’s note: This is one of a series of articles ENS is publishing during Women’s History Month.[Episcopal News Service] She was a reluctant revolutionary. Reticent and shy, Elizabeth Huntington Dyer of Saint Peter’s Church in St. Louis, Missouri, had to be persuaded to become the first woman lay deputy to General Convention in 1946.Known as Betsy to her family and friends, Dyer was born in 1906 in Providence, Rhode Island. A cradle Episcopalian whose brother was a priest and whose uncle was a bishop, she had deep New England roots. But in 1927, she married a man with almost equally deep roots in St. Louis: Randolph Harrison Dyer, a descendent of the city’s co-founder, Auguste Chouteau.The Dyers, who lived in the city’s Central West End, were active members of St. Peter’s, and had three children: Elizabeth, Clarissa, and John. He was a businessman; she was a stay-at-home mother.“She and Daddy had always been very, very interested and involved in the Church,” said her daughter, Clarissa D. Gordon. “They always had a lot of clergy friends.”In 1946, some of those clergy friends decided that Betsy Dyer should represent the Diocese of Missouri as a lay deputy at that year’s triennial General Convention in Philadelphia. “It was a well-planned move on the part of many,” wrote the Ven. Charles F. Rehkopf, archdeacon of the Diocese of Missouri, in an 1989 letter.“It was Bishop (William) Scarlett who persuaded Mother to do this,” said Gordon. “She was exceedingly apprehensive. She was reticent and shy, and she thought, ‘I’m not qualified to do that.’ But Bishop Scarlett made push after push after push,” and she finally acquiesced.Betsy Dyer’s ecclesiastical relatives were a part of the clerical calculations. Her uncle was a member of the Anglo-Catholic wing, which as a group was a tad slow to accept the full participation of women in the Church. “Some of us,” wrote Rehkopf, “felt the Anglo-Catholics would block the seating of a woman and that a relative of someone as well known as Father Huntington would be difficult” to turn away.Dyer was nominated by the then-rector of St. Peter’s, the Rev. Dr. Clifford L. Stanley, later a professor of theology at Virginia Theological Seminary. Stanley, recalled Archdeacon Rehkopf, felt that “it was time for women to have a voice in the convention. She was elected on the first ballot.”It was by no means certain that she’d be seated at General Convention, however. “We went with her,” said Gordon, then a high school student. The family spent their summers in a small town called Heath, Massachusetts, escaping the St. Louis heat. That year, they made a detour to Philadelphia.Elizabeth was at college, but the rest of the family watched as “Mrs. Randolph H. Dyer” presented her credentials in Philadelphia. “Daddy, John and I sat in the balcony and looked down on all of it,” said Gordon. “Mother was seated, but they were very clear that this was just for this one time.”The Journal of the House of Deputies reports that – after the House was called to order, a passage of scripture was read, and a prayer said – “The Secretary inquired of the House if there were any objections to the seating of any member whose name was called.” Sure enough, a question was raised about seating “a woman who had been elected as a deputy.”A legal opinion was sought from Judge Augustus N. Hand, a lay deputy of New York. According to the Journal, he “said interpretation of ‘layman,’ ‘person’ and ‘man’ in statutes was all-inclusive.” According to a Reuters News Service story that ran in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, he “told the assembled delegates that it would be ‘preposterous’ to limit the word laymen to the male sex.”Judge Hand moved that Dyer be seated, and, eventually, the motion carried. She was elected to head Missouri’s lay delegation to that Convention.“The next morning,” said Gordon, “Daddy, John and I were sitting at a diner – at the counter, a real treat – having breakfast,” and saw a Philadelphia newspaper with a story on General Convention. The paper had a cartoon William Penn as a mascot “and he was tipping his hat to the first woman delegate. We were very proud of Mother.”Were the other delegates kind to her? Were they, well, gentlemanly? “Very,” reported her daughter. “There were people up on the stage who… did not feel it was right that women be delegates. It was not a personal affront to my mother. She felt very, very comfortable and welcome – but she knew that her being a woman was an issue.”A little less than three years later, the Dyers left St. Louis. One of the Dyers’ “clergy friends” was the prominent Wright City, Missouri-born theologian Reinhold Niebuhr; he recommended Randolph Dyer for the position of business manager at Union Theological Seminary in New York. “Daddy was very happy there,” said Gordon, “and because he was happy, my mother was too.”The Diocese of Missouri elected another woman lay deputy to serve in the General Convention of 1949, as did three other dioceses. Despite Betsy Dyer’s prior service, they were not seated “because the Committees of the House of Deputies were ready with an interpretation of Layman that differed from Judge Hand in 1946,” wrote Archdeacon Rehkopf.As in the case of the suffragist Susan B. Anthony, brought to trial for voting in the presidential election of 1872, an official decision was made that the word “man” referred to both men and women – except when it didn’t.And so matters stood until 1970, when women were finally admitted to the House of Deputies. But in 1966, “Mrs. Randolph H. Dyer of Missouri” and the General Convention of 1946 were invoked in a paper summarizing the possible interpretations of those “generic words… ‘he,’ ‘his’ and ‘him’” when it came to questions of ordination to the diaconate, priesthood, and episcopate. Inclusion eventually carried the day.As for Betsy Dyer — shy, retiring, and, according to her daughter, “a very good mother” — she remained active in the Church. Her participation, however, was in more traditionally feminine channels. Never again did she play a part on the national scene. She died in 1996 in Pennsylvania.— Sarah Bryan Miller is the classical music critic of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and a contributor to various Forward Movement publications, including, most recently, “Walking with God Day by Day.” A version of this story appeared in a parish history of St. Peter’s Church, St. Louis, where Miller is a member.

Argentina snatch victory from France with late try in Cordoba

first_imgThursday Jun 21, 2012 Argentina snatch victory from France with late try in Cordoba Argentina came from behind to snatch a late 23-20 win in their first Test against France in Cordoba on Saturday. It was the South American’s second win in succession, following on from their beating of Italy in San Juan a week prior. As you should know by now, Argentina will be joining the extended Tri Nations this year, as New Zealand, South Africa, and Australia get a new challenge as the Rugby Championship takes flight.With that in mind, Argentina’s preperation is well timed and they’re looking good value for their current 6th in the world position on the official IRB World Rankings. They scored two tries against France, the first of which came from a well taken intercept by Belisario Agulla. Felipe Contepomi kicked 13 points, and with a few minutes left in the match, a turnover allowed them to streak down field, as winger Manuel Montero collected a kick ahead for the match winning try.France haven’t won a match in Argentina since 1998, but will get another shot at it next week when the two sides meet in their second, and final, Test in Tucuman. They do however have some key players missing, including Thierry Dusautoir and Imanol Harinordoquy, who are both being rested.Argentina have made more changes to their team, as they continue to experiment ahead of the aforementioned Rugby Championship. Argentina play their first game in the Rugby Championship, away against South Africa, on August 18th.Below are highlights of the game (in Spanish), and you can watch the full match hereADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Villa G is located in a quiet bay off the southeastern region of the Swedish archipelago. This region is renowned for the oak forests that have contributed to the Swedish boat-building tradition for centuries. The western section of the site is oriented toward the coastline, giving access to the southern horizon of the Baltic Sea. The rocky shoreline is a result of blasting and excavation that characterizes the landscape and protects against the harsh, autumn storms.Save this picture!Courtesy of André PihlSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!Courtesy of André PihlLocated on site was a dated summer home from the 1960s. Villa G is positioned on center with the original house and oriented toward the vast view of the sea. When approaching the site from a small, forest road, an uphill driveway leads to the house and presents a clear overview of the site. The house’s form is derived to maximize the vast ocean view while simultaneously embracing an intimacy with the nature on site.Save this picture!Courtesy of André PihlThe house’s volumes are divided into two, private sections which are interwoven by one common, uniting volume. The house’s volume responds to a neighboring house and is oriented to not obstruct their views. Each private section of the house is programmed with a small bedroom, a larger bedroom, a bathroom and a common room. In between these sections is a large living room and kitchen characterized by a built-in sofa and a fireplace adaptively reused from the dated summer house. From each of the larger bedrooms, sliding doors give both visual and physical access to the extraordinary sea view and morning sunrise. During summertime, large, glass partitions open to the sea breeze and blur the boundary between inside and outside.Save this picture!Courtesy of André PihlThe materiality of the house was a clear request by the client, characterized by horizontal, wooden panels treated with black paint. This material choice is a clear homage to the facade of the original summer house. From the forest side of the house, the facade is minimal in scale, with narrow, vertical windows and a terrace for access during morning sunlight. The larger glass partitions of the facade are oriented toward the sea and the protruding roof lantern.Save this picture!Courtesy of André PihlThe interior of the house is refined and reduced in materiality. The concrete floor is a polished, matte surface and the structure is almost exclusively constructed of wood. The interior is characterized by both white-washed walls and colorful accents. The antique fireplace is spherical, red steel and strengthens the eclectic personality of the home’s interior.Save this picture!Courtesy of André PihlProject gallerySee allShow lessChurch of S.

‘I don’t forgive this woman, and she needs help’: Black child wrongly accused of grabbing ‘Cornerstore Caroline’

first_imgJason Littlejohn(NEW YORK) — With tears streaming down his cheeks, a 9-year-old black child spoke out at a community meeting in New York about being wrongly accused of grabbing a white woman’s backside in a corner store — an incident disproved by security-camera footage.With his mother standing beside him, Jeremiah Hervey delivered a simple message at the community meeting: “Friendship is really the key.”Jeremiah’s emotional response came six days after Teresa Klein called the police and claimed the boy had grabbed her butt in a Brooklyn corner store Wednesday.Klein issued an apology after viewing surveillance video of Jeremiah’s backpack brushing her backside as he passed her in the store. The video clearly shows Jeremiah’s hands were in front of him as he passed her.Shortly after the encounter, a witness took a cell phone video of Klein apparently on the phone with a 911 operator, claiming the child groped her.“That’s right. Her son grabbed my a–,” Klein could be heard saying on her phone. “And, she [the mother] decided to yell at me. There are security cameras in this bodega.”The video shows Klein pleading for police to be sent to the store immediately, prompting terrified cries from the young Jeremiah and his little sister as they held onto their mother, Someko Bellille.Jeremiah and his sister, dressed in school uniforms and carrying shopping bags, could be seen and heard crying and calling for their mother as she and other customers and residents tried to address Klein’s accusations.“‘Cornerstore Caroline,’ that’s what that is,” one person could be heard saying on the video. “Don’t cry, little man.”Bellille also spoke at Monday’s meeting, telling the crowd, “What happened to us respecting one another, having unity and being neighborly?”Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams organized the community meeting after the video of Klein calling 911 on Jeremiah went viral on social media, sparking outrage.Following the meeting, Jeremiah told ABC New York station WABC that he does not accept Klein’s apology.“I don’t forgive this woman, and she needs help,” he said.On Friday, Klein returned to the store, as residents and local media stood by, to finally watch the surveillance video that exonerated Jeremiah. Footage from inside the store showed the boy’s book bag grazing Klein’s butt. His hands, which did not touch her, were in plain sight on surveillance video.The episode is the latest in a string of incidents in which white people have called the police on black people for seemingly innocuous behavior.Klein also claimed that she called the police because the child’s mother was aggressive.“I felt someone grab my a–. I said, ‘Don’t touch my a–.’ The woman flew at me, claimed she was a police officer, threatened to arrest me and I called 911,” Klein told New York ABC station WABC-TV.On Friday, Klein returned to the store, as residents and local media stood by, to finally watch the surveillance video. Footage from inside the store showed the boy’s book bag grazing Klein’s butt. His hands, which didn’t touch her, were in plain sight on the video.Klein later apologized on video to the boy after seeing the footage.“Young man, I don’t know your name, but I’m sorry,” she said.The hashtag “Cornerstore Caroline” lit up on social media almost immediately after a video of Klein was released. The video was taken by a man named Jason Littlejohn, who posted it Facebook.Littlejohn encouraged people to “make this go viral” in his post. As of Monday, the video had been viewed nearly 8 million times.“She basically said, ‘I’m calling the cops on you.’ She didn’t say the mom or anybody else. She said I’m calling the cops on you and that poor, little boy, man,” Littlejohn told WABC.“We’re definitely going to make a movement out here,” Littlejohn said in his Facebook post Sunday. “We’re going to stop people — I will say, people — from dialing 911 unnecessarily. … It’s gotta stop, people. … We will not let this continue to happen.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
