it was Wednesday afternoon when
the mothers of the new off-campus

j’’ellow forsythia and green ferns.
The guests were received at the door
by Stephanie Newman, head of the
off-campus organization, and Vir
ginia Garner. Receiving in the fac
ulty parlor were Miss Katherine Rig-
gan, dean of the non,-resident stu

These thoughts she left with us—
that Christ’s greatest commandment
was to love one another — even
as He loved us enough to suffer on
the Cross, and to give up His life for
us. We who call ourselves Chris
tians often do not realize that nl-
though wo don’t preach sermons with
our lips, yet our lives are sermons to
those around us, often to those who
would meet Christ in no other way
than through us. If we really love
Christ, we are going to be guided by
Him in fulfilling His Mission for
us — and we are going to try to live
as Ho lived, and to spread His King
dom here on earth.

ELEANOR WATKINS SPEAKER
AT WORLD FELLOWSHIP
At the World Fellowship meeting
on Thursday afternoon Eleanor Wat
kins reviewed the book “Made in
U. S. A.,” written by R. A. Goslin.
There are two policies to be taken
toward other countries as far as de
pendence for products is concerned.
One of these is economic nationalism.
The reasons in support of this idea
are desire for independency, avoid
ance of uncertainty in foreign trade,
decline of big foreign markets, lack
of importance of foreign trade, pro
tection of our standard of living, and
preparation in case of war.
The internationalists advance the
folowing reasons in support of their
theory. Natural dependence of one
country upon another, increasing of
trade through wealth, raising of
standard of living through trade,
promotion of world peace through
trade, and large proportion of goods

of the ‘thrift, honesty, and team
work” of these workers.
“Some of these men have been on
their jobs from six to twenty-three
years. And for service, they are
making one of tho finest records that
can be recorded by any institution or

proud of the college officials, of tho

that they pledge to maintain it to

Ireland, he said, the seventeenth day
of March was a national holiday in
memory of their Saint Patrick who
lived in tho latter pnrt of the fourth
century. St I’utriek was really a
Scotchman who was captured by ban
dits when he was fifteen years old
and carried as a slave into^reland
where he served for six years. He
escaped to Northern France where
he became interested in the Roman

St. Patrick, who’s real name was
not Patrick, desired to return to the
land of his captivity. He went back
full of love and enthusiasm. Rugged
exterior, rugged energy, bodily
strength, great personality, and Chris
tian courage were the Patron Saint’s
characteristics. Ho built many
churches and everywhere in Ireland
the name St. Patrick was saluted
with reverence. There grew many
traditions and tales from his memory.
Ho wrote two things that are
known: the story of his confessions,
a faithful narrative of his youth’s
heart grown into manhood, and a
letter to a father priest in France
written in Latin and noted for its sin
cerity and grammatical ruggedness.
