Results of Student Convention PACIFIC Are Widespread In America CHILD COURSE[




Definite student projeet are already under way in a good many colleges all across the country as.aresult of the Evanston Interdenominational Student conference which met (luring the Christmas holidays. Reports of these projects were brought from every seetion of the ITnited States to the first meeting of the continuation committee which recently was held in Columbus, Ohio. Many of these student-directed undei-takings i-elated very definitely to the demand for church unity which was so persistently expi-essed at Evanston. Thus at Northwestei’n university the young people’s societiOs in the Evanston churches are moving more closely together in a common use of the project method. Recently a representative committee outlined an experimental program on the question, “What is your aim in life?” Students from various denominations undertook a wide survey of student and adult leaders, from Al Jolson down the line, to discover, if possible, a guide to their own thinking. The sessions at which the answers were discussed were livelier and more to the point than any meetings within the memory of these church groups. A similar project is under way at the University of Michigan. A committee representative of all the young people’s soicieties of Ann AI’bor has worked out a common program. The first question that is to be raised by these groups i. “How wet is the University of Michigan?”Student commissions are making a survey of Ann Arbor in an effort to gather data on which to base a disc’us sion for that night.

Piano Duet, Musical Reading and String Trios, Feature In


The last lyceum program of the season, presented on March 12, by the I Hulls of the Pacific College music department has proved to be the best number for the whole lyceum course. : The I-lulls have the happy faculty of giving programs containing much of the “intellectual” type of music, but so xeellently done and given in such a delightful manner, that their concerts are always populai-. Alexander Hull and Mrs. Hull were assisted by Ruth Holding and Clifton Parrett, violinists, and a program of much variety was the result. Mr. Hull’s explanations and comments on the various numbers added a great deal to the enjoyment of the audience. The program consisted of trios, with two violins and ‘cello, and Mrs. I-lull at the piano; a duet, with two pianos; a dramatAc reading with piano accompaniment; and a number of vocal solos. To the writer, the two outstanding numbers wire the Trio in G Major, three movements, by Gurlitt, played by Alexander Hull, cello; Ruth Holding ‘ and Clifton Parrett, violins, and Mrs. Hull at the piano; and the dramatic reading “King Robert of Sicily, read by Mr. Hull, and accompanied at the piano by Mrs. Hull. The music for this was very fine and made the read. lag of the poem doubly impressive. The vocal solos by Mr. Hull were thoroughly enjoyed as always. The selections which he gave were unusually good. Of special interest was Mr. Hull’s own song, “Miss Sally’s Serenade,”




A project of another sort is that at Ohio university at Athens, Ohio, where in a coal mining community, students, with the backing of the churches, have already set about the job of cooperat ing with the nining groups in night and week-end classes. . All the way from Massachusetts to Oregon reports have come of the widespread and increasing interest in the pi-oposals for projects of various sorts which were outlined at Evanston. ‘r continuation committee is helping to start five student commissions to head up project work in these vaiious fields. Each of these commissions, although composed of students, will have the helr of an expert adviser. The fhist commission is to undertake the investigation of the educational processes of the churches particularly with reference to the wa in which the facts are being bi-oadcast, of how the church is already, in terms of definite cases, helping to build a new social order. The matei-ial for this survey will be gathered by students. The second commission is studying ways and means for church student cooperation and relating itself to all the union projects aleady undertaken by the students themselves. There will be further commissions on international relationstudents, and student ships; church leadership in communities, etc. The continuation committee is seeking to correlate and conserve these varCommunications which OU5 projects. relate directly or indirectly to this work can be sent to the Interdenominational Student Conference, 150 Fifth Avenue, New Yoi-k, N.

Pacific Wranglers Take Five Points to Linfield’s One In Dual Debate Pacific Col1e women’s debate teanm composed of Freshmen and Sophomore women, met Linfield’s Fi’esIimej women Tuesday night, March 9, debating the subject of “Child Labor.” This was the first intercolle giate debate for the Pacific women this season. The argument was strong and was presented in very convincing manncr, Pacific’s teams being especially stiong in the rebuttals, as well as con sti’uctive speeches, as proven by the unanimous decision of the judges In favor of Pacific at the home contest, and the two to one decision at Linfield, making five votes for Pacific by the six judges, Pacific was repreented by Mildred Choate, Mae Pearson, Lolita Hinshaw and Gladys Hadley. Pacific women will meet Albany and Monmouth in a triangular on April 5, and Pacific University in April. STUDENTS LAUNCH DRIVE FOR STUDENT LOAN FUND ,Ahut three years ago R. A. Booth of Eugene offered to give $100 a year until a total of $500 had been paid to be applied on a student loan fund at Pacific college, provided that the stu. dents of Pacific should match each $100 with money raised by. them. This prop. osition was received with great enthu. siasm by the students and a campaign for solicitation was organized. Something over $300 was raised as a result of this drive, which Mr. Booth has cov ered with $300 as agreed in the first proposition. No effort has been made since by the students to raise more money to be ap plied to this fund. Since nearly all of the money now available is loaned out to worthy students, and there are still applications which had to be turned away, it was suggested that another drive be organized this year to secure contributions from friends of the col. lege to this worthy cause. Consequent. ly, a committee was appointed to plan a campaign for this spring. This corn mittee decided to make the drive a contest between the men and the women of the institution, with the fol. lowing two penalties to be conditionally imposed on the losers: The side get. 1 ting $50, cash, into the hands of Mr. Macy last shall have to pay for a waffle I breakfast for the college folks on May side having Day morning; and the raised the smallest amount of money

IS THIS BILL THE VOICE OF THE AMERICAN PEO PLE Has the need of war become so deeply rooted in the lives of men that the flower of our young manhood must be “sold to the cause” through the whim of one mere human, however great a statesman he may be? Is the clamor of all nations for universal peace so futile that our laws must take away ±he heart of emancipation so greatly cherished by-our fathers in ‘76, and the very cause for which our immortal Lincoln gave his “last measure of devo tion ?“ Whence the justice and whence the love of God and hu manity voiced in this bill?

The American people cannot, the American people MUST NOT sanction such an infrac tious outgrowth of superannu ated and carnal minds!

LEGALIZED SLAVERY The Capper-Johnson Draft Bill would endow the President of the United States with the power of an omnipotent dicta tor, and deprive the American citizens of their democratic function. The following is the text of the Capper-Johnson bill: Be in enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in congress assem bled, that in the event of war de clared by congress to exist, which in judgement of the President demands the immediate increase of the military establishment, the President be, and he hereby is, authorized to draft into the service of the United States such mem bers of the unorganized militia as he may deem necessary. Provided, that all persons drafted into the service between the ages of 21 and 30, or such other limits as the President may fix, shall be drafted without exception on account of indus trial occupation. Sec. 2. That in case of war, or when the President shall judge the same to he imminent, he is authorized and it shall be his duty when, in his opinion, such emergency requires it,— (a) To determine and proclaim the material resources, industrial organiz ations and services over which Govern ment control is necessary to the suc cessful termination of such emergency, and such control shall be exercised by him through agencies then existing or which he may create for such purpose; (b) To take such steps as may be necessary to stabilize prices of ser vices and all commodities declared to be essential, whether such services and commodities are required by the Gov ernment or- by the civilian population.

Avowedly the bill would exalt the occupant of the presidential chair to the throne of an unrestricted monarchy; it would make our chief executive the Mussolini of America, the undisputed czar of a subjective populace. It would deprive the American people of those vital

Y. W. NOTES March 3 The first of a group of meetings which are being conducted by girls of the different classes, was 1ed by the First Year giz-ls in a very fine way. Arloene Davey led the singing and Mary 5ue Binford accompanied. Della Hanville commented in a very helpful way on the verse of scripture, “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.” A few minutes were devoted to prayer and expression for those Who wished to use it. A special song was sung by Eva Kendall and Irene Brown, accompanied by Laverne Hutchens. The meeting was highly appreciated by everyone.

The report of the nominating committee was as follows: President, Ralph Hester; vice president, Carl Crane; secretary, Mari on Winslow; treasurer, Wilbur Elliott. This report was accepted and its nom inees automatically took office. Following the election Professor Weesner spoke on the subject, “Conse cration and Thrift,” stressing the urge to conserve our forces in early life in order that we may apply them later to some great life work.
