Beer used to be the staple col-

is easier to buy and produces a

Concentration on convocationsI
with the aim of increasing student-
interest in religion appears to be
the principal order of business for
the Student Christian association.
While their efforts are, within
bounds, fruitful, other fields,
which because of their greater fer-'
tility would reap larger harvests if
given the attention afforded con-'
vocations, are being left untouch-
ed. Foremost among these is the
establishment of a more intimate
and cordial relation between stu-
dents from foreign countries and
the general student body.
The University is recognized
universally for its cosmopolitan
character, its abundance of stu-
dents from other lands, who are
frequently the most promising
young men and women of their re-
Despite the high calibre of these
students and the importance of
their receiving a favorable opinion
of the University and of the Amer-
ican people generally, they are
treated with an air of frigidity.
The building of a friendly rela-
tion with foreign students is di-
rectly in line with the association's
endeavors, and it has done some-
thing toward that end. But cor-
dial feelings can not be thoroughly
built through orating on the value
of international friendship. It
must spring from a source of more
specific and intimate nature.
