Y. W. C. A. CABINET TRAINING
COUNCIL HELD THIS YEAR AT
GREENSBORO COLLEGE APRIL
About Thirty Delegates Present—
Meredith, Trinity, Winthrop, Salem
and N. C. C. W. Represented.
For the past several years cabinet
training councils have been held every
spring for the purpose of training the
incoming Y. W. C. A. cabinets. Last
year this council was held at Meredith
College in Raleigh; this year at
Greensboro College in Greensboro,
with many meetings held at North
Carolina College for Women.
Most of the delegates arrived Tues
day night. The work of the council
began promptly at nine-thirty o’clock
on Wednesday morning. Not accord
ing to custom this council was made a
mid-week one in order that it might
be led by some of the most competent
leaders of the National Y. W. C. A.
The general theme of the council
was the “Necessity of Christ.”
Through the series of discussion “The
Necessity of Christ to Religion and
Personality;” through the committee
meetings, “The Necessity of Christ to
Our Whole College Campui", and
through the series of addresses, “The
Necessity of Christ to Society”, was
studied in detail, every phaie of the
theme being considered.
Miss Burner led the discussions
on “The Tilings that Mean the Most
in Our Religious Thinking.” Miss
Katharine Lumpkin, Miss Elsie B.
Heller and Miss Willie Young were the
leaders of the other groups. Besides
these there were special addresses of
unusual value by Miss Leonard, Miss
Brown and Miss Ruffin, which further
developed the general theme.
Two local speakers, Dr. H. 0. Naik,
of Saint Andrews Church, in Greens
boro, and Prof. Lindeman, of North
Carolina College for Women, pointed
out “The Necessity of Christ to the
Church” ^nd “To Our Isolated and
Open Country Districts.”
The list of the leaders and promi
nent speakers at this conference would
not be complete without the names of

“Be on Time Every Time” from now
on is not merely the motto of the
Cabinet Training Council, for it has
been adopted as the watchword of sev
eral associations for the coming year.
Although the greatest part of the
time from nine-thirty o’clock Wednes
day morning, April the sixth, to nine-
fifteen o’clock on Friday evening,
April the eighth, was spent in hard
study, deep thinking and efforts to
absorb some of the uplifting spirit
that seemed to be part of the atmos
phere, there was another side of this
Those who were delegates will al
ways remember the informal reception
given on the dormitories by the Junior
and Sophmoroe classes; and another
equally as enjoyable one given in the
Y. W. C. A. hut by the N. C. C. W.
girls; the tea in Emerson Literary
Society Hall at G. C. and the automo
bile drive through the beautiful sec
tions in and around Greensboro.
This was a typical Y. W. C. A.
Cabinet Training Council. Every
delegate went away wondering how
any cabinet girl could afford to miss
such an opportunity. Above every
thing else it accomplished its purpose;
It was a real spiritual uplift.
But the real work of the incoming
cabinets has just begun. May they
put into practice the valuable things j
that they now have in theory. There
is no reason why 1921-22 should not
be the most successful year the Y. W. j
C. A. has ever experienced. I
