The capital of one of the most populous and prosperous provinces of China,; the imperial seat of a lormer dynasty, and a great center of education under the old, and still more under the new regime. Hanchow, the latest city to be entered by a represen tative ol .the Young Men's Chris tian .Association,' is a field of commanding importance and in spiring possibilities. The mis sionaries of the city have long felt the need of such a work as the Association is qualified to do in such a center, and for the past decade have been appealing for men to be sent out by the Young Men's Christian Association to help meet the situation. While, of course, the ultimate aim of the Association will be to. reach the entire manhood of the city, it is felt by all that at the beginning the primary effort should be to reach the thousands of students congregated here. These students constitute an important field for several reasons. In the first place, they come from every quarter of the province, and present, there fore, a unique oppoitunity of touching with Christian influences the entire province. In the second place, most of them will go back to their communities to become leaders to a degree unparalleled in America. This is true because they are riot simply preparing themselves for leadership along old and wrought out lines as at home, but they are the first to equip themselves for .leadership in a new and wonderful era which is just dawning. It is unquestion ably the Modern Student of China who is to fashion and mould tin iMiIna r( Tomorrow. It is not surprising :hat the missionary body of this great student center should have earnestly sought out some means of reaching this class that they might have a part in determining the ideals of those who will determine the ideals of the New China. Nor is it sur prising in view of the nature and oast history of the Association that they should have chosen it as the agency in and through which they could best accomplish this end. At the same time, that thev have done so, gives us a re ' newed sense cf gratitude to Cod for the Providential way in which He has opened up before our move ment from the very beginning increasingly numerous and effec tual doors of opportunity. II. As I have been in Hang chow less than six months and as most of this time has been devoted to language study, I have naturally little comparatively to report. While, however, most of this time has been spent in study, considerable time has been spent in getting acquainted with those with and among whom my work will be, and in "'endeavoring through these to acquaint myself with the situation as a whole. The result of this observation has been encouraging. It has revealed on the part of the Chinese pastors ; of the city an attitude as sympa thetic to the Association as that, of the foreign missionaries. though less eager on the whole because less informed. It has brought to light a group of men qualified to become the nucleus of a substantial Christian member ship. Some of these would be capable at once of assuming the duties of directors, and of wield ing at the same time considerable influence in the city on behalf of the Association. A good work of long standing is already carried on in the two mission schools, which in itself constitutes a good beginning upon which to build . a larger work. The splendid work of the Shanghai Association, only 150 miles away, is well known and has served to create a demand for a similar work here. This applies especially to the students in government schools, who but for the Shanghai example would probably knew little and care less about the Christian Association. III. The most encouraging single event which has taken place since my arrival, was the series of meetings conducted by Eddy in May. These meetings were held primarily for govern ment students. Generous adver tising was placed in the vernacu lar press and scattered in leaflet form in the various schools and colleges. It was a matter of con siderable conjecture, first as to how large a response these invi tations would meet, and, second, what sort of a reception would be accorded the speaker bv those who would come. However the largest public hall in the city was secured. "-A tickets were placed at centra r..- iK distribution !- i to those who shou. JV all for them. The distribution f tickets began two days before the first meeting, and within the first twenty-four hours the entire supply was ex hausted. When the hour of meet ing arrived the hall which feats' 1,000 people was crowded, large" numbers were turned away from the door, and hundreds were re ported not to have come because of their failure to secure tickets. Not less remarkable than the at tendance was the attention ac corded Eddy as he plead with the men before him on behalf of an unselfish and fearless patriotism based on Christianity. At the close of the final meeting which was held Sunday afternoon, Eddy announced an After Meeting and Continued on second page ju ion or provision 1
