As students of a college we all
love, we should occasionally ex
amine ourselves and see if there
is not some way in which we can
better do our part in making it a
more ideal institution.
One thing that a great number
of students here may be criticized
for is their selfish spirit—the spir
it that causes them to attend to
their own interest rather than the
interest of the group. I mean by
this the spirit that permits a stu
dent to neglect duties, the per
formance of which he owes to the
college or the student body, sim
ply for personal convenience.
In fact it seems that there are
a number of students here whose
tendency it is, when needed for
some special duty, to have a per
sonal engagement much more im
portant. We were given a notable
example of this when the Y. M. C.
A. convention was in session here.
Several boys, who were appointed
as delegates and excused from
classes, took this opportunity to
stay in their rooms. Some of these
were neglecting special duties
which had been assigned them
while all were neglecting their
duty to the Y. M. C. A. which had
appointed them to attend the con
ference in order to better equip
themselves for this work and thus
make a more efficient organiza
tion. We had other examples of
this self-centered spirit shown
when we had the musical on Sat
urday night—one week ago. This
spirit should not be allowfed to
creep into any one.
While it is true that "self-j^re
servation is the first law of na
ture" it is equally true that those
who act entirely from selfish mo
tives are not building the best and
most admirable characters. Those
who lose themselves in doing the
things that are best for others are
not only more admired but they
get the greatest joy from living.
Then let us all be ever ready and
willing to do —at a sacrifice if nec
essary—any task that will accom
modate or be beneficial to those
about us. If this is done, better
individual characters will be
formed here and a better institu
tion will result.
Y. M. C. A. NOTES.
We continue to have splendid
talks at our weekly prayer meet
ings. This week's meeting was
conducted by Raymond Smith,
who centered his thoughts about
the topic, "Influence." The Scrip
ture reading is found in Romans
14 :l-7, and Isaiah 32:2. Our lead
er said many things that were
worthy of our consideration. But
probably the most pregnant state
ment that he made was "Each one
of us can be a rock to shelter some
one else." He spoke of how every
one of us lives in some one else's
shadow; how some one sheltered
us; how like the plant in the sun
scorched desert we live only by
the protection of some person who
towers above us. The speaker said
that it is good to be thus 'protect
ed, but that it is much better to
protect. In concluding he urged
us to become a more lordly rock
and hold out a protecting influ
ence over our fellow students.
On Tuesday afternoon, Novem
ber 9, the girls of Hie Walking
Club, led by Miss White, walked
a distance of about two miles
southeast of the college. Reach
ing a favorable spot, they stoppe 1,
took breathing exercises, indulged
in a game of ball, repeated the ex
ercises, and then returned to the
college in a brisk walk. This af
ternoon was enjoyed more per
haps, than any other because the
girls are becoming more expert
walkers and with such a spirited
leader as Miss White, no one
could fail to catch the enthusiasm.
A volley ball field and a basket
ball court have been prepared 'n
the girls' athletic field west of
New Garden Hall. On Thursday
afternoon of this week, all girls
except upper classmen were re
quired to report on the field. The
tennis courts were in use, a basket
ball game was in progress and vol
ley ball was being played. Thus
every girl could folow her inclina
tion as to games.
There are several girls here who
are familiar with volley ball an J
with these as leaders, no doubt
this snappy game will be a favor
ite form of exercise.
There is an effort being made
