pose the meeting of recent Michigan t
graduates ina their city, .and inucing is

social and civic life in the communityL
This -work is still in tits infancy, ut
good reports hiare already been receiv-o
ed from several cities. i
Over 115 members o last yea'sP
graduating class have sent up theirs
names and addresses and these haves
been seat either from this office or byV
our Alumni Committees to the orani-s
zations in their respective. cities that
really need their service. For the pur-9
pose of helping in a similar way Mich-t
igan graduates who happen to be locat-
ed in small towns and villages the As-C
sociation is publishing a number of
leaflets that contain definite sugges-
tions as to the best ways and mleans oft
serving .most helpfully the ~religiousl

siont in Busrah, Alrab ia. Five students!
are now on their way to te "city of
Busrah, Xrabia, two probably havng;
already arrived. Money sufficient has
been pledged to support the proect
until the net camnpaign for funds.
Yale,aH arvard and Pennsylvania have
similar university missions.
The Association was led to undertake
this enterprise lbecause it believes that
the great interests of th church at
large demand "the education of Univer-
sity men along missionary lines. Wit'
the multiplicity of local'student inter-
ests it is impossible to secure sufficietI
publicity for all such matters unless r
project is launched that is ' large
eaou a to attract the attention of th(<
whole University. That the under-
tbking has Sueeded thuws far is
source of~ profonud satisfaction to all
the friends tai the Associafioni, for th
Seeretariea and officers o~ that organi-
zation biie r sthat this enterprise wi

In this connection it will' be inter
estinv to .lno x that definite plans for
an Association building were drawr.
up about ten years ago. Shorty after
they were laid aside when it wa
known thant the memorial building wa
being planned, Again they were lath
aside when thaee caapiign for the pres
est 1'Union building was launched, bn'
nowin view of the ssoiatiou s urgentl

The Association is 'not open to th
criticism so frequently heard of re
stri tin; its membership to the stu-
dents who chance to be members of so
called evangelical churches. The loes

for tho' last six years opened its mem.
bvr, hip,. Including Toting priileges, to
students of all, creeds, races and col-
ors, iwlO believe in and desire to for-
ivard the general object for which. the
association has been established.
In reviewing the work which the As- e
sociation is called upon to undertake
one can see the need of continuity in _________
leadership. The Association is corn-
Felled to secure the services of menT
who will agree to give a good share of Thur.
their lives to the work. Such a policy
is in line with the most approv ed methi-
ods of conducting large enterprises.
No special mention has been made
in. this article of the relation of the
Association to the churches, in view
of the factthat the matter is treated
in another communication. It is quite
possible that this article has not an-
swered all of the objections which may
still rest in the minds of some of the
students or professors of this univer-
sity. Should that be so, the officers
or secretaries of the Association willp
gladly answer any questions that may
be submitted to them personally.
The authorities of thle Students'
Christian Association deplore the effort
of any one to draw the Christian As so-
ciations or any one of them into antag-
onism 1ith ally other organization. So
far as the Christian Associations are
enlcerned such attempts' are wholly un-
authorized and against the wishes of
those' in iuthorit * Seat Sale
