Mrs. Martin, a graduate of Ran
dolph Macon College, was the presi-
iileint of the Juaiior Leagues of
America during the war and is a
well-known social and civic leader
Since Thursday was Valentine’s
Day, Mrs. Martin kept the theme
of love and friendship throughout
her informal and informing speech.
“It is up to the college women of
today,” she challenged, “to begin
thinking of their opportunities and
advantages and make the decisions
on what should be done with them.”
Each one must learn to use what
she has and use it to the best ad
vantage. If each will do her part,
the results will be big and great
things will be accomplished.
Each girl must keep an opon
mind, learn the facts on both sides
of tho problem; and decide on her
own opinion. Above all she must not
be afraid of change if it is a change
for tho best and a change, for pro
gross. She must keep two thoughts
uppermost in her mind: think clearly
and reason soundly.
Mrs. Martin says that the college
girl must establish a universal love
and friendship throughout tho world
,if the chaos of the after effects of
World War I is not to be repeated.
Wo must cooperate with the rest of
the world and really live and act
