John D'Arcy, '84L
Dies In Illinois
Funeral services for John D'Arcy.
'84>_, prominent Joliet, Ill., attorney,
who died Sunday morning, were held
at 9:30 a.m. yesterday from St. Pat-
rick's church in Joliet. He had been
in ill health for a year, and had nev-
er fully recovered from a major oper-
ation performed five months ago.
He was born in Joliet, in 1870, and
worked his way through the Univer-
sity, graduating from the law school
in 1884. He began 'his practice in
Joliet, specializing in personal injury
and criminal suits.
D'Arcy served as president of the
Wills County bar association for sev-
eral terms, and was a member of the
Joliet library board for 31 years. At
his death he was the largest individ-
ual property owner in Joliet.
He was one of the many noted law-
yers and alumni who attended the
dedication of the Law Quadrangle,
held last spring.
He is survived by his second wife,
Mrs. Kathryn W. D'Arcy, four daugh-
ters, Mrs. Vincent A. Corcoran, Chi-
cago; Mrs. Robert E. Bourke, Bever-

"Most missionaries are not preach-
ers as so many believe," Mr. Baldwin
emphasized. "Rather, they attempt
to teach students in their schools a
concrete way of living which they can
follow all their lives." As an example,
Mr. Baldwin spoke of the Ushagram
School at Asansol, India, which is
organized as a cooperative commu-
nity. The students have their own
libraries, banks, currency, church, and
,ommittees for health and sanitation
and for political supervision. The stu-
dents live in families of six on little
plots 60 feet square in huts which
they build themselves. These huts are
of the same material used in their
native villages. but they have modern
sanitary improvements which these
students are able to afford after leav-
ing school.
The pressure of village needs has
forced the missionaries to undertake
all types of community service to a far
Lgreater degree than religious groups
have applied Christianity in America
of late," Mr. Baldwin' continued.
Summing up the results of lastj
' year's data, Mr. Baldwin found that
the general trend of student attitude
toward missions is unconcern and
indifference. This is caused by their
ignorance of the wide scope of mis-
sions he believes. It is the narrow
minded missionary that students ob-
ject to and not the social service
work that others are carrying on.
