V ocutnal guiuance, extenmui ser-
vice, and student conference are fur-
thered. The cosmopolitan life of the
University is made more effctive
because of the S. C. A.'s work among
the foreign students in our midst.
The Upper Room Bible class is an
institution which has been a source
of inspiration to hundreds of stu-
dents for many years.
Such, then are the S. C. A.'s activ-
ities-they appear when written to-
gether to constitute a huge task. As
such they are being conducted suc-
cessfully and deserve the financial
support of those concerned. There.
can be no doubt as to the need for
our Christian associations. Anything
which will promote a Christian spirit
of good-fellowship among students is
wbrthy of support. The S. C. A., and
the Y. W. C. A. are not charity organ-
izations. If they serve the student, he
should contribute. The) are asking
no more in the campaign.



We aren't going to pull any such
paragraph. And what's more, we
aren't going to dinner any more than
the literary colyumist was.

Chapter 2 (of the novel)
When Arthur was twelve years old
he joined the Boy Scouts. He had seen
pictures of them on the front of the
Saturday Evening Post handing
I swords to a beautiful lady with Lib-
erty written across her forehead, and
they always looked so nifty in the
picture that he lusted after a Scout
suit. All the boys in his grade belong-

There are on the campus two organ-
ations whose futction in life is
Afinite, whose purpose is being
'aught to fruition quite successfully.
hey are not essentially boosters'
ubs, they are not formed with t e
definite goal of furthering the wel-
re of Michigan teams everywhere.
hiey try to keep before the student
dy the necessity for a consideration
religion as a moving force in mod-
n life, and tend to remove the antag-
isms of creed and race. These
oups are the Student Christian as-
ciation and the Young Women's
4ristian association who yesterday
)ened their annual campaign for
The latter of the two organizations
ems to be entirely fulfilling its
ission in life. The majority of women
e connected with the work in one
pacity or another, and every wo-
an is at least cognizant of the effort
ing made by those in charge. The
aders are' an inspiration and the
ork productive of results. This is
rgely because the -women support
as they do their League, their
hletic association, and the rest of
eir activities. They w&ill withoutr
ubt be eminently successful in their
aancial drive. They deserve to be.
On the other hand the confidence
the student body in the produc-
re work of the S. C. A. is not so
rtain. Probably because the male
adent body is so large, because
ey have had no recent reason for
.ification, there is not the universal
pport of the S. C. A. or the Union
tich characterizes simliar women's
ganizations. The average student
es not feel his connection with the
rmer of these groups. It is 'not, like
e Union, a place where he can eat,
ep, swin, or dance regularly. It
es not have any contact with those
tivities which seem to predominate
s life while in college. It is not a
estion of whether or not these are

>re important than those of the S.1
A. The matter simply resolves it-
f into a question of present day

China is in a peculiar situation
whenever any two opposing factions
are contesting for the control of
Pekin, according to Charles B. Warren,
'91, ex-ambassador to Mexico andf
Japan, who analyzed the problem of
the orient in a recent address at Al-
bion where the degree of doctor of
laws was conferred upon him by Al-
bion college. Dr. Warren explained'
that control of Pekin meant little to
China as a nation, since the means of
communication and jurisdiction over
the outlying states of the great re-f
public are so inadequate that no gov-
ernment can exegcise an effective
control over the vast Chinese domain.
Early this week news dispatches
from Pekin announce that the city has
been raptured by the "Christian gen-
eral," Feng Yu-Hsiang, and that the
former commander-in-chief, Gen. Wu
Pei-Fu, has fled to the eastern coast.
President Tsao Kun has turned over

ed anyway.
He was duly enrolled as a 'member
in good standing' of the Woodchuck
patrol, Troop 5, of the Boy Scouts of
America. He thought he would never
be the same after he had once taken
the immense oath to do his best "to
keep myself physically strong, men-
tally awake, and morally straight."
It would be inconceivable for him to
go on grape-swiping expeditions with
the boys of his neighborhood after
Fie procured an order from his scout-
master entitling him to a Scout suit.
(It was his main interest in the organ-
ization, although he would have denied
it to himself.) The order he took to
the local representative of one Sig-
mnund Eisner, a philanthropic magnate
who had a monopoly on the Official
Scout Uniform. He ordered a shirt, a
coat, breeches, leggings, a web belt,.
a natty red neckerchief and a hat.
They would 'be here in about a week,'
the clerk assured him. And they would
cost about $16.

To reach the goal in the campaign,
then, the S. C. A. must convince this
average student of his part in the
work. Since The Daily is certain of'
essential function of the organization,
a review of its worthy projects is a
propos here. The S. C. A. has given the
freshmen this year a "bible" which
is complete in all respects, which
ranks favorably with other college
"bibles." Freshman discussion groups
have been organized under competent
leaders whose purpose is the discus-1

current issues of universal interest.
