lives wo must use whatever knowledge that wo

DR. MAHON LECTURES
AT Y. W. C. A. SERVICES
ON SUNDAY EVENING
We were delighted to liave with us on lust
Sunday evening at V. W. C. A. JJr. Brower,
Dr. Maddry and Dr. Jfalian. .\fter the
opening song and a prayer by Dr. Brewer,
Dr. Maddry introduced Dr. Mahan, who is
connected witii the new Baptist Training
School in !New Orleans. He told us .some
very interesting facts about this school. It
occupies the old sit(^ of Sophio-Xewcoine Col
lege. which includes si.xteen w(dl-et|ui])ped
buildings. J here are at ]>rescnt one bun-
fired and eighty students, eleven instructors
and two tutors in tbe school. Coiirses are
ofb^red in Bil>le. language, missionary, music,
book-keeping. stenogrni)hy, etc., IJible being
reijuit'ed in all courses.
One filing that distinguishes this school
from ihe seminaries in Ltmisville and i'ort
^^or1b is the fact that a boy ov ■nii-l docs not
have to be a college graduate in order to entin'
the courses given Ibere. Tt offers opportunity
to l>oys and—wUcl—.u/.iuj.t—■'uii’siy;!
work, and who do not bavi* a eollege educa
tion. to fit theins(‘lves for si-rvice. di.s-
tinctive feature of the school is that ii gives
a chance fen- ])ractical applicatiini, right in
tbe city, for the things which are studied in
the class room.
.After Dr. .Mahan's talk Dr. Afaddrv made
a few r(‘inarks about the need of trained
lead(‘rs for young )ieo])lc's work in tbe
churches today, and impressed upon ns the
fact that the fm'eign field is not the onlv
field 0]>en for service.

In the Inst pa]ier the responsibility which
rests on Americans was especially stressed,
and also the greatest lu-oblem given as the
underlying feeling between the IJnifcd Slates
and -Tapnn. The difficulty in .«!ettliug the
Far East question was also brought out, both
the economicjil and moral side of it.
