The recent visit of Mr. Bergtholdt
served to bring home to Guilford Co 1 .
lege students in a very real way the
need for a sacrificing devotion to tne
Army Y. M. C. A. in every phase o,
its work. Perhaps Guilford has bee x
somewhat tardy in recognizing her
duty in this time of test and a quick
ening of interest along this line was
necessary lest our college be found
among the slackers.
If a spirit of seeming indifference
has prevailed it is probably due to
the fact that Friends have for so lon*
a time stood firmly for principles of
peace as opposed to war that it is
very difficult task for them to find
their place in the present world
struggle. However this may be, no
student can afford to assume a spirit
of indifference toward a movement
so momentous in its effect upon every
Friends everywhere are bearing
burdens as heroically as others, and
the fact that they are exempt from
bearing arms only adds to their re
sponsibilities along other lines. A
spirit of sacrifice and of devotion t >
a great cause can be cultivated by
every one regardless of religious
principles. This spirit, students ol
Guilford College cannot afford to
miss and indifference toward the suf
fering of humanity in this war has
no place within college walls. If you
are safe because some one else
fighting- your battles for you do not
assume that you are therefore freed
from responsibility. Perhaps you
say that no one need be fighting the
battles; but even if that were trua
in the beginning you can no longer
find refuge there. We must be in
tensely interested in the triumph of
right in this great conflict.
The contributions to the cause
which Mr. Bergtholdt represents in
dicate a sense of responsibility and
a feeling of sacrince on the part of
many students. If this spirit could
be scattered broadcast and if everv
one could be brot to realize the sig
nificance of life at this time the out
look of our student body would be

The following clipping from the
"Lawrentian" might also furnish
food for thought to Guilford boys and
"We are here for another year of
college work and college pleasures.
The vacant north balcony shows more
would be with us if they were not in
the service of Unole Sam. We who
have the privilege of being here this
year should be more earnest in our
endeavors than we ave been before.
We should do it for our own sake, for
our college's sake and for our coun
try's sake. We all know what it
means to each of personally if we
are earnest in what we undertake.
Besides this our lesser numbers here
make it necessary for each of us to
do our very best in order to maintain
the high standards of the college.
And because there are fewer stu
dents in the colleges and universities
this year than ever before we will be
more needed to help our country in
the many ways that only trained col
lege graduates can hel>p.
So if we are not enlisted to fight
for Uncle Sam, let us enlist to make
this one of the best years that Law
rence has ever had and at the same
time not forget that there are thous
ands of people in the world who need
our financial heLp. We who are so
privileged with a college education
should be the first to realize the con
trast between our lives and those of
the poor people of Europe and we
should be the first to be ready to do
whatever is in our power for them.
If we make this year a very fitting
year oi earnest endeavor we will find
many ways in which we can econo
mize so that we can give generously
vvhenever we are called upon. Enlist
in the army of workers.
Among the new exchanges we find
"The Wake Forest Student" in which
are a number of interesting articles.
The short story, "The Singleton
Oaks" with its beautiful sentiment,
its representation of the chivarloue
country gentleman of the "Old
South" with its tenderness and
pathos, cannot but make a strong
appeal to the true born Southerner.
Both the essays on "Various Concep
tions of Hell" and "Par From the
Maddening Crowd" are worthy of
