(Whether the last named is an occupation or not the writer of this article will not attempt to say). The work of fathers was listed as follows: 35 farmers; 12 merchants; 8 preachers; 6 followed no regu lar occupation; 5 doctors; 4 car penters; 3 retired and 3 me chanics; 2 in mail service; and one each as planter, judge, cafe proprietor, barber, lawyer, real estate, lumberman, miller, wood capper, teacher, contractor, road constructor, watchman, politic ian, bull fighter, surveyor, cler ical and Anti-Saloon League work. The interesting thing about the above is that while 35 students’ fathers were farmers, one was a planter. Just what the distinction is here we do not know. Another interesting thing is brought out by the above in that it is the farmers sons and daughters who are in the lead, thus going to prove that farm- lers realize the importance and do not neglect the education of their children. Perhaps the most interesting answers of all were given in re gard to chosen work, and here a wide range of interest is shown. I Thirty-three have not yet made I up their minds as to their life’s I work; twenty-nine have definite- I ly decided upon the teaching I profession, one of whom will teach the deaf; eight have am bitions to excel as stenograph ers ; seven have dedicated them selves to the ministry; five will take up the study of medicine after graduating from Weaver with the view of making this their method of earning , their daily bread; three have felti the, call of the great out-doors ■and will become civil engineers; two hav^ felt a call to foreign fields as missionaries, while likewise two have expressed their prefer- ence as electrical engineers, housekeepers and music teach ers, respectively; and last, we have a list of occupations, trades, jobs, positions, et cetera that only one student each has shown interest in and these are: farming, broker, lawyer, lyceum worker, singer, journalism, and grafter. The student who avow ed it to be his purpose in life to be a grafter is very frank, to say the least, and if there be such a thing as a conscientious graft er, he will certainly merit that distinction. Perhaps the most interesting thing revealed in this list of occupations is that while there were 35 students who came from the farm, only one expressed a desire to go back to the farm as a tiller of the soil. It might be said in this article that something like one-third of the students are working all or part of their way through col lege, thus proving again the old adage that “where there’s a will, there’s a way.” It might be in teresting to learn just what •these students are doing. They are doing^-almo^t every conceiv able kind of work from TnilTring- to tutoring. The work available for students consists of: firing boilers in dormitories; sweeping halls; work on campus; ringing bells for classes and meals; car rying mail; work in library; work in college office; pressing clothes; barbering; operating laundry;- and other odd jobs. 22-24 Asheville, N.

ANNUAL REVIVAL MEETING ON CAMPUS The annual revival services began at Weaver College on Monday, December 1, with Dr. C. H. Sprinkle, Presiding Elder of the Asheville District, doing the preaching. The pastor, Rev. Mr. Reams, and the chief executive of the college, did much to forward the enterprise and arrange affairs to contribute to the interest and spiritual awakening of the en- I tire community. Evidently tiie time was ripe for a revival; tlie faculty, by personal work previ- jously initiated deepened the in terest and augmented the re sults. The faculty members and Christians of the student body I assiduously united in prayer for a definite goal—every member saved and every soul revived. Much good was realized. Two services were held each day and the strong, inspiring messages of Dr. Sprinkle, the receptivity and response that was mani fested, and the interest in the meeting in every respect was fraught with the best results.
