LISTEN TO THE EXHORTATION
OF THE DAWN: LOOK TO
For it is life, the very life of life.
In its brief course lie all ,the verities
And realities of your existence!
The glory of action,
The bliss of growth,
The siplendor of beauty.
For yesterday is only a dream,
And tomorrow is only a vision,
But today well lived makes
Every yesterday a dream of happiness
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well therefore to this Day—
Such is the exhortation of the dawn.
COLLEGE STUDENTS AND CHRIS
It is due the College students who
have been taking part in the local
Christian Endeavor Society that the
members of the Alumni and other
friends of the College should know
of ithe splendid 'work which they are
doing. For the ipast two years the
faculty has granted to the boarding
students the privilege of attending
the prayer meetings which are held
in the church at 6:30 on Sunday
evenings. Many have availed them
selves of this opportunity and at
present 55 boarding students are
members of the society. Others who
are not members often 'attend and
take part in the (meetings. The pres
ence and assistance of all are greatly
appreciated by the community mem
bers. The president this spring is
Algie Newlin, a .member of the Soph
omore class, and the student body is
fully represented on aid committees.
We should be glad ,to have any or
all members of the faculty become
members with us, or attend the spray
er meetings whenever they have the
time or inclination to do so. It is
our desire to make this society a
training sicbool fcr workers who will
go out into all iparts of this and other
States with hearts for service, in all
lines of Christian Endeavor work. —
GUILFORDIANS ATTEND STU
DENT VOLUNTEER CONFERENCE
Miss Chilton Elected Secretary For
During the past week-end the Stu
dent Volunteer Conference was in
session at Elon College. About 90
delegates representing fifteen col
leges of this State rwere in attend
ance. The Guilford delegates were
Addie Morris, Ellen Raiford, Totten
Moton, Alma Chilton, Clara Mc-
Cracken and Ruth Coble.
In the opening session President
Hodges gave as the motto for the
conference "Clean uip, open u,p, look
up, lift uip."
Dr. Ussher's (presentation of "Tur
key's Challenge to Volunteers" gave
a new and better impression of the
natives. In a clear and forceful man
ner he told of the need for Christian
ity and the willingness to receive it
but of the unfortunate lack of work
The picture of the "Land of Op
portunity" presented by Dr. Woods
showed the need of directed ability
in China thru social, moral, medical
as well as religious education. The
need was further emphasized by the
personal experiences of Dr. Bradley,
another medical missionary to China.
Rev. N. A. Wilson made an appeal
to the Christian church to realize its
debt to Japan. Here lies an oppor
tunity for evangelization and general
help because of the trust the Japan
ese put in American workers.
Dr. Lovell Murray, the author of
the recent book, "Call of the World
Task," discussed extensively the
need for more men and women of
high quality, with unbiased senti
ment and sincere punpose so that
Christian 'cnunch doors may be open
ed wider in foreign lanids.
The effect on the various colleges
as a result of this conference were
summed up concisely by Dr. Weath
erford under three heads: Take the
spirit back to set a new moral life in
the home college; helip people to real
ly believe in God and prove that
Christianity has not failed; get the
college students to realize that the
great task of evangelization lies with
Thruout the sessions emiphasis was
laid on the importance of charging
the college atmosphere with a world
view of the ipresent needs and oppor
tunity for work of Chri&tian fellow
ship in the various countries where
paganism now dominates.
During this conference eleven new
volunteers were added to the present
number in this State. Opportunity
was given at the last sesnion for four
volunteers to tell why they chose this
as their life work, Ruth Coble, of
Guilford being cne of .hem. Each
seemed to be convinced that this
work should be theirs and seemed
willing and anxious to give their
lives for the cause. Alma Chilton,
from Guilford, iwas elected secretary
of the North Carolina Student Volun
AMERICA'S I>EBT TO ENGLAND.
(Continued from first page)
brought with them this custom of
papular sovereignty. England was
noit a tyrant. There were popular
assemblies in all colonies. The gov
ernors although appointed were paid
by the people of tne colonies. There
fore a large element of self govern
ment was inherited by the colonies.
"England opposed the Revolution
as a breajch of the Empire," declared
the speaker, not on account of dis
parity between ideals of government.
The loss of America quickened the
vitality of the self government spirit
in England. This fact is illustrated
by the reform of Young Pitt, 17 85,
which looked to the extension of
franchise. These strides forward
were suddenly checked by the ex
cesses of the French Revolution.
Such men as Canden, Bright and
Dryden are landmarks in England's
democratic iprogress. The work of
Gladstone in 1885 completed the pro
"Desipite the distrust established
in the minds of the American people
between 1861-65 and despite the dis
trust established by the Venezuelan
boundary controversy, America owes
to the mother country her inherent
instinct of democracy."
"We should remember an English
man suggested the Monroe doctrine,"
declared Dr. Wagstaft'. The speaker
then showed that from 1823 to the
present time England was the only
power that could have struck us with
profit in war.
Napoleon 111 of France eagerly de
sired to recognize the Confederacy
and see the United States divided
and but for the opinion of England
this support to the Confederacy
would have been given by France.
Napeloon 111 also seriously threat
ened the Monroe Doctrine by trying
to establish colonies in Mexico. But
due to the non-intervention by Eng
land and an early close of the civil
war we were in a ,position if neces
sary to place enough troops in Mexi
co to upset Napoleon's plane.
The great sea ipower of the mother
country and her sympathy for the
United States in the Spanish-Ameri
can war kept Germany from taking
the part of Spain.
In 1914 England was the first to
step into the arena in behalf of dem
ocracy. "We should therefore real
ize our indebtedness to the mother
country and outgrow our preju
