The aim of the Service Promotion Commission
is to lead all students into an active participation
in Christian service. The work of this commis-
sion lays a foundation on which the other com-
missions can work. Committees include College
and lligh School Membership, Music, Employ-
ment, and Property.
The work of these various committees may
seem mundane and uninteresting, nevertheless,
these activities are essential to the service pro-
gram of the Y.
Membership committees contact each new stu-
dent at the beginning of the year in the interest
of the Y. Through questionnaires they discover
the special interests and aptitudes of students in
order that they might be used efliiciently. The
membership committee tries to place each stu-
dent in some form of Christian service.
The Music Committee promotes the organiza-
tion of small singing groups for Christian service.
These groups are then made available to other
committees for street meetings, Cospcl teams,
cottage meetings, jail services, or any activity
needing special music. The Music Committee
also supplies special music groups to local
churches and missions that request them.
The Employment Committee attempts to find
work for students who desire it. The committee
takes calls from near-by businesses and individu-
als who want workers and supplies them from the
student body. Many students appreciate this
The Property Committee is responsible for the
maintenance and upkeep of the property of the
Y. The members of this committee take care of
the loud-speaking equipment, wash the Y cars and
keep them serviced. and give other material as-
sistance. -C. RICHARD KHALL
