THE Y. M. C. A.
There is one department of the col
lege that does not hold the place of
predominance that it should at the
University of South Carolina. This is
the College Y. M. C. A. This organ
ization is self-supporting and has held
its place with all other departments of
the College without any outside aid.
Every student of the institution
should take an active part in the work
of the organization, for it is one of the
most important departments in college.
The boys are required to go to church
every Sunday, and it would not be a
)ad idea if the faculty of Carolina
would let attendance at the Y. M. C.
A. exercises count in place of tile
former. This would influence the
boys to attend tile Y. M. C. A., and
then they would take interest in the
work carried on.
All the big universities and colleges
have a Y. M. C. A. secretary, who
carries on the religious work, and it
has added much to tile situation and
condition of the students. Carolina is
deficient in this line, and the organiza
tion is putting forth all its efforts to
succeed in getting a secretary next
year. Last year 'there was'some little
misunderstanding and the Legislature
did not donate the money for the see
retary. The members of the Y. M.
C. A. are sincere in their work, and
with the backing of the student body,
the trustees and the faculty, they hope
to meet with success this coling ses
sion of the Legislature.
We all see how a physical instructor
helps out at a college and keeps ath
letics oil the move. Just the same way,
but two-fold better, would a secretary
be most beneficial to the University.
There should be such a man at this
institution, and the time is ripe at
present. If all will unite in the cause
tile golden opportunity will not slip
by this time. Clemson, our sister in
stitution, has a secretary of whom she
boasts and who has done much good.
Carolina, too, is going to have a sec
retary if nothing prevents this time.

PRESIDENT MOORE PLEASED
WITH MEETING IN
President Moore was in Washing
ton last week in attendance upon the
National Association of State Uni
versities. This was the thirteenth

University has risen to the position
where it is regarded as one of the
leading Universities of our country.
President Moore reports a very suc
cessful meeting. There were many
prominent Universities iepresented.
Among those present from the South
