WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE CAMPUS FORUM? "What do you think of the Campus Forum?" has been asked of many girls over the whole United States, even right here on our own campus. What do we as Association members think of it: First of all. what do we know about it? Do we know that it is really a section of the Y. W . C. \. publication, the Woman's Press. set aside especial!) for us, students. We are its contributors as well as its readers yes. Farmville has had a contribution in the- Campus Forum. I lave you read it? This is just an example of numerous questions and things of interest ahum the vastness of the Y. \\. C. A. work which we ought to know. Ask any of the members of the Cabinet what they are doing now; they will be mosl apt to answer "studying" and refer yon to_a regular course of study and references on the Cabinet room table. They arc studying. They have each been chosen for a particular fitness for her place. and the) are striving to go forward, to receive training and a broader vision of the scope of the whole Association. They are to take an examination on the work and then go to Westhamptofl College to a Cabinet Training Council that they may be better leaders and representatives for us as Association members. Are we not to learn also? Certainly, and not necessarily all from them either. Let ns study onr Association, ours in the sense of the- world wide influence. Let us learn the work, let up keep posted as t" what's happening in our Association World. Read the Woman's Press and other good books on the V*. W. C. A. reading table.
