A student who writes anonymously
has made an attack on the Student
Christian association. Usually experi-
enced editors cast aside as unworthy
of use the many anonymous communi-
cations they receive, for the very good
reason that the public does .not value;
the opinion of one who is not willing
to put his name to what he. writes
The communication has just been
called to my attention. i'erhaps the
fact that I am one of several who are
willing to admit that the Student;
Christian association has in past years
failed in part in its aims, and who
have endeavored this university year
tions,-which is possiby a wiser wayI
to help it better to perform its tune-'
to deal with this subject than that
suggested by our, anonymous andI
"tired" friend,-may excuse a few ob-
servations on his communication. Ap-:
parently without his realizing it, his
statements consist almost entirely of
his conclusions, no facts being stated
that might enable his readers to ex-!
ercise a little judgment of their own.
The substance of all he says is that
the Student Christian association anld
the Young Women's Christian associa-
tion have no "specialized function,"'
are dead and should be bried. AP suit-
able reply would be, they are perform- '
Ing a useful service to the student;
community, are not dead and shoud
not be buried. Both statements are
mere conclusions, entitled to be treat-
edsrouy only as they have attach-
ed to them a name which inspires :con-,
What does this writer really knowl
about the work of the Student Christ-
Ian association during the current
year? Has he been in its building dur-I
Ing that time when any of its activi-G
ties have been in progress? Does he
know what opportunities it has pre-
sented to the students? Does he know
enough about it to be a critic of it?
Does he know about what might be
called the Student Christian asocia-
tion missionary work, cosisting of a
summer camp for under-privileged
boys from Detroit and other near-by
cities? Does he know this has been
successfully conducted for four years
by Student Christian association stu-
dents, who desire to render unselfish
service wherever they can, and who
endeavor to present-to the boys :newr

Complete freedom is not for civil-

are :not synonymous,
"Complete freedom" of research, in-

only qualification being that "Federal

This move of Vassar college author-
ities is fine; far better than are, the

of many other countries for that mat-

of this or that theological or economic
group can be taught without starting
vehement, protests and even attempts
at banishment., "Complete freedom,"
however, is a large order, and if the

fit may cause trouble.
