Perhaps nothing is more important as we go thru life as the correct point of view. You know that is what our president has so often told us in his chapel talks. And the correct point of view admits of someone else's view besides our own. The person who sees everything from his own viewpoint can not get the correct perspective of the object he is looking at. He needs must observe it from different viewpoints besides his own And thus it is with everything in life—there are always two sides to a question. The college student who cannot meet every question that comes along with an open mind, a mind ready to receive the truth in all its aspects, has not benefitted very fully from his college training. It is nearly spring time and the spring elections are already with u s . ' It behooves everyone to enter these elections with an open mind, trying at least to see the good qualities of every candidate and not merely his bad qualities, or worse yet, merely the good qualities of your own particular candidate. For t h e . best interests of the school, activity of which your favorite is a candidate, it behooves you to get the correct point of view. o . "OUR


Soon a f t e r our Y. M. president spoke to the Y. W. girls on the subject "The Ideal College Girl" we observed one of the latter wearing a diamond. We hope that is the last time he gets a chance to speak on that subject. When we received our last week's Anchor our first impression was t h a t the March winds had blown it inside out, but further investigatiort proved t h a t inside out was right side out f o r that particular issue, as the printer explained. Our foolosophy was somewhat upset the other night when we were told in Y. M. t h a t shoe . polish is necessary to social polish. "All • the world loves the lover," said the freshman as he was refused another date, "except his sweetheart." We think he should study Schepenhauer. Even Dr. Harrison has "got on" to Dr. Nykerk we observe. The former won the latter's heart immediately when he told the story about a whol caravan being murdered because one of their number was seen smoking a cigarette. We think it is only pathetic justice that the alphabetical order of chapel seat arrangement be reversed this second semester, especially if. we intend to do much more singing.

A deeply devotional meeting was held at 9:00 A. M., at which Dr. Harrison made very plain to us the ideal of our relationship to Christ. To be a Christian one must will to follow Christ, to acknowledge Christ's leadership, and to avoid the pitfall of human leadership. Morning worship we enjoyed with the various churches. In the afternoon "Tad" Weeks gave us some definite requisites of a Volunteer, and Tom Sharpe conducted the question-box. The closing session of the Conference was held at Hill Auditorium on Sunday evening. The last message that we took away with us was from Dr. Harrison. The keynote of his talk .was a discussion of the reasons why missionaries go to foreign lands. During the past years the missionary enterprise has often been called upon to justify itself and although missionaries are not candidates f o r pity, they are more than willing to give their reasons. They go to take to heathen countries the same Christ that wa have, and to cooperate with those people in the march of progress. Armed with the teachings of Christ, the missionary has the only thing which they really need to help them take their places among the great nations of the world. Everyone who came to Ann Arbor has gained a new outlook on life, we feel sure. The Conference was a decided success in every way and its results will be more evident in the following months f o r are resolved to live up to the visi9ns we have seen.


ENTERTAINMENT. The Michigan Volunteers proved model hosts. Everything possible was done to show us true hospitability. On Saturday afternoon campus guides conducted us to all the particular points of interest on the State* University grounds. Some of us even had a view of the veiled mysteries. To cap the climax we heard a truly fine organ recital given by Earl Moore of the University School of Music. The organ was the one installed a f t e r it had been displayed at the Pan-Ameriican- Exposition. " At the close of the conference on Sunday evening, the Hope delegation was entertained in true Hope style by two loyal alumni, Mr. and Mrs. Garret Van Zyl who live in Ann Arbor. We can vouch f o r it, forty strong, that Dutch hospitality still continues—even in parts f a r removed from Holland. Many Hope men at the conference were entertained for the week end by Alumni of Hope who are now students at Michigan.
