As students of a college we all love, we should occasionally ex amine ourselves and see if there is not some way in which we can better do our part in making it a more ideal institution. One thing that a great number of students here may be criticized for is their selfish spirit—the spir it that causes them to attend to their own interest rather than the interest of the group. I mean by this the spirit that permits a stu dent to neglect duties, the per formance of which he owes to the college or the student body, sim ply for personal convenience. In fact it seems that there are a number of students here whose tendency it is, when needed for some special duty, to have a per sonal engagement much more im portant. We were given a notable example of this when the Y. M. C. A. convention was in session here. Several boys, who were appointed as delegates and excused from classes, took this opportunity to stay in their rooms. Some of these were neglecting special duties which had been assigned them while all were neglecting their duty to the Y. M. C. A. which had appointed them to attend the con ference in order to better equip themselves for this work and thus make a more efficient organiza tion. We had other examples of this self-centered spirit shown when we had the musical on Sat urday night—one week ago. This spirit should not be allowfed to creep into any one. While it is true that "self-j^re servation is the first law of na ture" it is equally true that those who act entirely from selfish mo tives are not building the best and most admirable characters. Those who lose themselves in doing the things that are best for others are not only more admired but they get the greatest joy from living. Then let us all be ever ready and willing to do —at a sacrifice if nec essary—any task that will accom modate or be beneficial to those about us. If this is done, better individual characters will be formed here and a better institu tion will result. Y. M. C. A. NOTES. We continue to have splendid talks at our weekly prayer meet ings. This week's meeting was conducted by Raymond Smith, who centered his thoughts about the topic, "Influence." The Scrip ture reading is found in Romans 14 :l-7, and Isaiah 32:2. Our lead er said many things that were worthy of our consideration. But probably the most pregnant state ment that he made was "Each one of us can be a rock to shelter some one else." He spoke of how every one of us lives in some one else's shadow; how some one sheltered us; how like the plant in the sun scorched desert we live only by the protection of some person who towers above us. The speaker said that it is good to be thus 'protect ed, but that it is much better to protect. In concluding he urged us to become a more lordly rock and hold out a protecting influ ence over our fellow students. GIRLS' ATHLETICS. On Tuesday afternoon, Novem ber 9, the girls of Hie Walking Club, led by Miss White, walked a distance of about two miles southeast of the college. Reach ing a favorable spot, they stoppe 1, took breathing exercises, indulged in a game of ball, repeated the ex ercises, and then returned to the college in a brisk walk. This af ternoon was enjoyed more per haps, than any other because the girls are becoming more expert walkers and with such a spirited leader as Miss White, no one could fail to catch the enthusiasm. A volley ball field and a basket ball court have been prepared 'n the girls' athletic field west of New Garden Hall. On Thursday afternoon of this week, all girls except upper classmen were re quired to report on the field. The tennis courts were in use, a basket ball game was in progress and vol ley ball was being played. Thus every girl could folow her inclina tion as to games. There are several girls here who are familiar with volley ball an J with these as leaders, no doubt this snappy game will be a favor ite form of exercise.
