It was with great pleasure and pride
that we met in our beloved hall on
September 26th to welcome new mem
bers and to begin our year's work.
The outlook for a successful year is
unusually bright. Besides having
some of our best workers of last year
back with us, there are among the
large number of new members several
excellent men in whom we have great
It is with great pride that we note
the manifest interest in the Society oin
the part of every member. Of course,
this is no more than should be expect
ed, but it has been a sad fact, for the
past two or three years, that the mem
bers have not taken as much interest
in Society work as they should. Work
for your Society men, there can be but

At a joint meeting of the Clario
sophic and Euphradian Societies on
October 3, 1908, it was decided to give
up the idea of getting out "The Cen
tennial Catalogue" on account of the
enormous scope of the work. It is
with much regret that this work is
given up, but the undertaking proved
most too great.
Mr. J. Rion McKissick, '05, a true
Euphradian, was present at the open

J. I. ALLEN.
The basic principle of the South
Carolina University is educational
rather than religious. The Institution
was founded not for the furtherance
of any religious creed, but for the dif
fusion of knowledge, for the dissemi
nation of broad and liberal ideas of
life as a whole, and for the pur
posc of giving to the young men
of our State the implements of culture.
and refinement. The direction of re
ligious ideas and beliefs has been left
to other influences. This, from the in
herent nature of a Siate institution, is
as it should be.
But our campus, we are glad to say,
is not wholly destitute of religious in
fluences. The Young Men's Chris
tian Association, which for the past
quarter of a century has been doing
so much for young men everywhere,
has its special and peculiar work here,
a work which no other organization
can do. The scope of this Associa
tion's work is universal. Its material
is young men; its finished product
