Student Body Adopts Special Pledg es Majority Demand Five Point Plan At a special meeting of the student body, Tuesday, November 12, a pledge was formulated in regard to our nation’s policy in the war now raging between China and Japan. This movement was a direct result of Dr. Walter Judd’s talk in Chapel, Monday, November 11. The pledge, which is to be signed by all students, is as follows: “In view of the unthinking part the American people are taking in the conquest of China, I register my protest in the following manner: 1. I pledge for a period of three months (Nov. 12-Feb. 12) not to purchase any silk hose. 2. As far as possible, I will avoid the purchase of articles manufactured in Japan. 3. The Boarding Students agree to contribute tlie cost of two desserts each week to the maintenance of Gingling University. •L The Day Students and Boarding Students agree to contribute le for each 5c purchase in the Y Store to the cause of Chinese relief. 5. I will write a personal letter of protest to President Roosevelt.” This jiledge is to go into effect immediately. Various Views Find Expression On Campus Leila Warren of Washington, D. C., outhor of Foundntion Stone, a cur rent best seller, was the guest speak er in chapel today. “What do you think of the move ment to abolish silk hose and institute cotton ones on our campus?” The opinions of the following people rep resent the consensus of the feeling of both faculty and students towards this move. EmzABETir Br^vmmer: “I think there is much more to the idea than just boycotting Japan. We should all relish the chance to prove to the rest of the country that we young people are really interested in the affairs of our country. We ought to be able to influence other colleges in the nation.” Axx Golden: “I have seldom heard such a stir about any one thing as there was after chapel Monday. To prove that the feeling was really sincere, I would certainly he glad to doff silk hose aild put on cotton ones.” can Miss Ixgt.is: “I am heartily in favor of such a move, no matter how drastic it is. If every one will co-operate, we may be able to start a ball rolling that will have national influence. You know colleges do that.” Miss Jean Orr: “A small jiehble thrown into a lake will cause ripples to spread over a large area. Dr. Judd threw out a thought that has fired our student body into action Who knovv's but that our answer to this great call may spread to other schools and colleges.” Mary Jane Hart: “I think it’s a fine thing, hut one that demands the active support of every one. Anv- how, if Elissa I.andi can wear black hose and be ‘continental,’ I guess we can wear cotton ones and be klnda cute, too.” Prominent Trnstee From South Carolina Addresses Students of Peace and Fear Dr. Roswell Long, of Greenwood, S. C., spoke in Cbapel, Tuesday, No vember 12. Mr. Long is a member of the Board of Trustees, and was liere for the meeting of trustees of the college. His address followed inspirational lines, and he said: “Peace is the ab sence of fear; it doesn’t come by hostilities, wars, embargos, or get ting even with someone.
