The Ministerial Association of the
college rendered a very much appreci
ated and inspiring program at the Mid
way Christian Church Sunday after
iiffon. The general theme was “Ser
vice.” Mr. Walter Brill presided at the
services, and intro'duced the speakers.
“How the Church Can Bender the Most
Effective Service” w^as the subject on
which J. Howard Smith spoke. Co
operation of the membership was the
central idea of Mr. Smith’s talk. Mr.
B. P. Rakestraw discussed '‘How the
Christian Can Render the Most Effec
tive Service.’' Life example and un
selfishness were the ideas emphasized
ill his talk. Fred Smith, the last speak
er, spoke on “How' the Church and The
Individual Can Render the Most Effec
tive Service.” He pointed out the
need cvf the churches, most especially
the need of the rural churches.
The speakers were asked to return
again, and received many compliments
on the program.

Auditorium Under Auspices of
Speaking on “The Challenge of
Materialism” in the Sunday evening
service, Dean Elbert Russell of the
School of Eeligion of Duke University,
gave as strong philosophic proof as one
is likely to hear, that nature is con
trolled by an infinite Intelligence. His
clioiee of subject was suggested by a
remark heard at the Jerusalem Confer
ence of Missionaries: “Today the real
conflict is not between religions, but
between religion and materialism.”
The Dean said that in our thinking,
onr premises are always drawn from
our experiences. As America was once
brought face to face with an uncon-
quered wilderness, it was right and
necessary that she should do much think
ing in terms of material things. But
there is danger in this circumstance;
for a variety of material interests
makes it easy foi^ u-s to have a keen sense
of the reality of material values, but
negligent in regard to spiritual values.
America is lolling in the cushions of
wealth. The average bricklayer can
have his car and radio outfit can enjoy
luxuries which princes were denied
three centuries ago. But America is
not practicing the old-time standard of
New England, ‘‘plain living and high
thinking.” On the contrary, we have
fallen behind other great nations in. the
things_ which make life beautiful. Wft
can build mighty engineering works,
but our art is undeveloped. We are
c.jude in manners, and ignorant in re
ligion. Tlie professor found that Ger
man students had thought deeply upon
questions which were at the edge of

going to think in terms of materialism
we should be consistent. If we say that
material things have in them all that

The Philologians will entertain! That
statement represents the crowning
event of Elon Thanksgiving program
every year. Many other things have
their time and place on this day—social
hours, football games, and enticing
turkey dinners j but there is something
else higher and nobler which causes
that cheerful and peaceful spirit to
prevail during this “turkey day” at
Elon. True, it is home-coming day.
But, then, it is something else too—
Pliilologian day! The “Phis” are
hosts. It is they who arrange for the
comfort and entertainment of the vast
