The Baptist Student Union, in iw

Baptist? with the Baptist students, in
the schools and colleges of the ’South.
In its more limited meaning the Bap-,

things: First, the unified religious
work of Baptist students of a single
school; second, the work for stu
dents of a single state as promoted
by state mission forces; third, the
work amongBaptist students through
out the South.

the various unit organizations of the

(-1 Message from the Vtce-
The business world is alert to the
monetary value of things. In fact the
world judges institutions and things
by their monetary value to society.
Our chambers of commerce boost
good roads so that tourists may come
and spend their money; they throw-
out inducements to factories. for +he
money-value they may be to the com-
But there are values quite as es
sential to the life and welfare of a
people as those feckoned in dollars
and cents. .4nd these are the com
munities’ spiritual forces, those un
seen, intangible values that render a
locality hospitable, and make attract
ive appeals to home-seekers.
Mars Hill College is 'Western
North Carolina’s outstanding spirit
ual asset. It does not pretend to take
the place of the church, but it stands
as the church’s strongest ally in en
couraging and directin.g the lives of
the mountain youths in the ways of
u.sefulness and service. Here they are
taught that the best in life is attained
by simple living and 'high thinking.
Here they learn that a young man

The regular meeting of th-a Tri-
County Medical Society was held
here in the Clio-Phi Society hall of
the college last Thursday afternoon
at 1:30. There were fifteen doctors
present for the meeting.
About the Opening
The entire day will be given to
the registration of first year col
lege students. All who live near
should be on hand not later than
8:30 A. M., the Others following
as rapidly as possible and in al
phabetic order as nearly as may
The registration of all others
will proceed while first year college
men and women meet in the cha
pel for a series of talks and a pe
riod for getting acquainted and a
brief trip to Little Mountain if
the weather permits. It is hoped
that every student will have com
pleted registration before supper
and that all may join in a twilight
service either on the campus or at
Locust Grove, conducted by Dr.
O. E. Sams.
All classes will meet according
to schedule for the assignment of
lessons and a preview of the
courses offered. At eleven o’clock
all will gather in the chapel for the
first assembly program of th^ year.

Church of Asheville, Dr. William
Russell Ow-en, attractive and force
ful speaker, a lover of young peo
ple and loved by them, w-ill briig
the message. Parents and fried?
are invited to be present. The
prayer meeting groups before the
evening period of study should
find every student in attendance.

Because in niy church covenant I
agreed that I would join the church
in any new center to which I
moved. The time element demands
it now.
Because I believe it is the teaching of
the Scripture that 1 should join the
church where I go to live. I find
but one kind of church relation
ship mentioned in the Scripture:
i. e., outright church membership.
Because I note that after college
days the graduates who go to a
community to teach,—to live for
only one year, — usually join the
church, or they are admonished to
do so.
Because I do not care to become a
“church tramp,” or a “spiritual
derelict” while I am in college. I
can help avoid this by joining the
Because I desire now to form the life-
habit, once for all, of loyalty, thru
close contact with my church.
Because I am no longer a child, but
am amply able to assume seriously
the duties and enjoy the privileges
of a church member.

students who are away from the Hill

new friends remained behind to hold
the fort during the summer months.

According to the report from the
Registrar’s office, a total of one hun
dred and fifteen enrolled for the first
term of summer school. The nfimber
enrolled w-as somewhat below the es
