emphasied the importance of each
college’s sending a delegation to the
Ninth International Convention of
the Student Volunteer movement,
which is to be held in Indianapolis,
December 28 to January 2. This con
vention comes only once in a student
generation. It is hoped, therefore,
that every college in North Carolina
will be represented. The Y. W. and
Y. M. C. A.’s are urged to send dele
gates who are not volunteers.
Some of the leading features of
this convention will be addresses,
discussion groups and forums, inter

ships, and the enrichment of spiritual
life. Dr. Mott will give a spiritual
address. Dr. E. S. Woods, of Cam
bridge College, England, is also one
of the speakers. Some of the themes
which will be discussed are “Present
