Gerig Page Seven t tXlXXt: THE beautiful Spring days are approaching and tlie gentle goddess imIis the student from the College walls to " Go out under the op?n skies and list to Nature ' s teachings " . As she leads him through winding paths into the forest he sees the trees budding, the blades of grass jieeping out among the dead leaves and the first spring beaiities making their modest appearance. He hears the notes of the robin and the cardinal, and listens to the roar of the water as it dashes down over the falls. As he stands rapt in the glory and beauty of it all, he exclaims with Browning: " The year ' s at the spring And day ' s at the morn Morning ' s at seven The hilleside ' s dew pearled, The lark ' s on the wing; The snail ' s on the thorn; God ' s in His Heaven — All ' s right with the world. ' ' But, as he meditates his rapture subsides into more sober thought and he realizes that these are the precursors of Summer and that soon another college year will have ended. He looks back over the year and i-enuMubers the uncertainty, and even gloom, tliat was hanging over tlie nations when the schools opened in September. The college was in no small way affected by the unsettled conditions that Avere attending all of our institutions. The first difference from last year that was noticed was the decrease in the faculty. AVe missed the face of l rof. Lehman, Avhose life lias been such an inspiration to the students and Avhose devotion to the cause of education has meant so much in raising tlie standard of the institution to its present plane. We also missed Prof. Blosser and Prof. Kreider, Miss ] lartin and Miss Hooley, who although not so long connected with the college, had endeared themselves to the students and faculty. The students apjn-eciate the sacri- fices which the members of the faculty who remained made, in order to meet the difficult situation caused by Ihe insufficient nuni])er of instructfu-s. Their devotion to the work anfl sjiirit of lidpefulness have been noble les- sons in themselves. When only five Seniors and the same uuinlier of -iunors i-etiinie.l to tli ' ir Alma Mater at the beginning of the Fall tei ' m, tlie outlook for the vear was Pa e Eight i GOSHEN COLLEGE §fi %i ' GOSHEX, INDIANA Pase Nil: ■ ' 9 £ THE MAPLE LEAF 4 it 4k 4k not very I ' licourajiin ' .

With these aims they launched forth njxin the new year, " " Heart within, and (iod o " erhead ' " . But war was not the only eloud that ovi ' i ' hung our Alma Mater. The Fall tei ' ia was only well started when the intiucn .a bail was phiecd upon the schools and eolleges of the state. A four Avecks ' vaeation ensued. .Many of tlie students returned to their honu ' s while a num ' oi ' r remained at the col- lege, yeveral fell victims nf the disease and one of our uundier, " A fair, uu-ek blossom " , was plucked from us. Though not at that time a student, -ve held her as our own for the loving friendship remembered fi-om her student days here. While a inimber were sick with the influenza, " Service for ulture " , as our motto is sometimes read, took on a very ])ractieal as])ect. Vre remendier with tendei ' uess the kindness of .Miss Voder at Kulp Hall and .Miss, Stalter at the Mission House, who served so cheerfully and patiently a head nurses for the sick. The students who were able, organized them- selves as assistants, and, donned in white ajn-ons and caps, together eared for the sicd-;. . ' ew fi ' iendships were made and ohl bonds drawn more closely and the iindual indpfulniss which was brought to sucii beautiful expression during those weeks, has characterized the year. The death of Norbert Idauch from electrocution while on duty at the sub- station, was another sad experience which came to the students and faculty during the Fall term. When the inlliu ' nza ban was fiiudly lifted, and work was resumed, the faces of several were missing, as some who had been sick could not return for the remaiiulei ' of the term. llowevei ' , it was o irs to ])ass not only through one of the darkest i eriods ill the history of the college, l)ut also through the time of greatest re.joicing. hen the sky about us began to brighten and work was going on again, came the lu ' ws of the signing of the aiMuistice which ended the four years ' contliet in Europe. We united in the .toy that had come to the nations as we felt that we were drawing nearer to the " Federation of the world " . Amid the i-ejoicing the students realized that tliis was no time to ridax. The op- portunities which tlu ' new ei ' a was bringing was also bringing new I ' csponsi- bilities. All felt that— " .New Ofcasions teach new iliities; Time makes ancient gooil uncouth; They must upward still, and onwai ' d, wlio would keep abreast of truth; Lo, before us gleam our eamjiflres! we ourselves must pilgrims be, Launch our Mayflower, and steer boldly through the desperate winter sea, Xoi- attcni],t the future ' .s portal witli the Past ' s bhio.l-rusted key. " - X 1 X K 1M E X X 1 X E T E E X 4 4 T e n GOSHEN COLLEGE i The world -was lileediiig aiul suft ' orkiji ' as a result of the war. The students, anxious to do what they immediately could to help relieve conditions, gave over seven hundred dollars for war-relief a few days after the signing of the armistice. Twenty-three former students volunteered for reconstruction work in P rauce and are now serving there. In addition to these, seven have been sent to Armeian since the close of the war to help relieve the suffering and homeless. At the beginning of the Winter term a number oi the old students returned from the camps. The enthusiasm Avith which they entered into the college activities has been a great inspiration, and their presence has meant much in advancing those interests and upholding those ideals that are so dear to all who have been here in former years. As we take this retrospective glance we feel that the year has lieen one not unattended by shadows, but yet we realize too, that these are essential in weaving the finest fabric of character. And, as we look forward to the greater Goshen College with Tennyson we believe — ' ' Not in vain tlie distance beacons. Forward, forward let ns range. Let the great world spin forever down the ringing grooves of change Through the shadow of the globe we sweep into the j ' ouuger day. " — : r. .

It is also trtie that when any movement develops rapidly there are con- stantly appearing new and unforseen circumstances that must be dealt with. Darin " - tue past year the Mennonite Board of hducation has faced just such a sittiution. This was due in part to the fact that the relation Avhich the church at large sustains to her schools has never been elearly set forth so that the constituency could feel the responsi])ility that was actually theirs- The bearing this had upon the finances for our educational work is shown by the results accomplished. As a result of a three months ' canvass enoii; ' h money was paid or pledged to pay off the indebtedness. In every large undertaking of this nature there are usually a few individ- uals whose ready response insures the sucess of the movement, " ' he remark- able thing in the canvass that was made was the unusually large number of such individuals who, after having the actual situation properly presented to them, gave cheerfully and nnstintingly, not only of their abundance, lni+ in many cases oi;t of their actual livlihood. Such a spirit of sacriiice is sig- nificant and highly gratifying to those who were vitally interested in the whole outcome. Ibii there was a cause at stake. And furthermore, the integiity of the Lennonite church was involved. And Avhile the Board took immediate action to meet its obligations, the development that followed Avas not so reassuring. There were those who coiuiseled caution, giving as their reason that the church was hardly ready to enter at once upon a " undertaking of such magnitude. There were others Avho felt the need of immediate action in .order to avoid serious consequences. The Finance Committee held several meetings, but was unable to fornudate plans that would bring the desired results. It was at this critical moment that several members of the faculty at Onshen prevailed upon Prof. T. R. Detweiler to volunteer his services for the A oi ' k of solicitation. The wisdom of his appointment Avas soon apparent. As a result of some preliminary Avork Avhich had been done by several indi- viduals, he received a Avarm Avelconu Avherever he Avent- Thruout Indiana. Illinois and Ohio, the response Avas far beyond Avhat even the most sanguin " NINETEEN NINETEEN 4 %£ ' ' 2 ' r- ' p a ' Twelve GOSHEN COLLEGE 4 k 4 4i i had cuitieipated. He had the hearty cooperation and very able assistance of G. L. Eender of Elkhart who, together with Prof. Uetweiler, were the representatives of the Finance Committee. This is the tirst time in the history of our educational work that tiie chur. ' h has given its tinaneial support in a large way. This was due in part to the realization that the church was under moral obligations to liquidate the entire debt. Of equal importance, however, is the fact that this crisis re- quired a careful presentation of the educational problems of the church to each individual Avho was asked to contribute. This information was a reve- lation to many. After it was explained that this relation was identical with the relation of the Mission and Publication Boards to the church, the re- sponse was usually all that could be desired. This response should l)e a source of encourag:ement to those who are directly interested in our educational work. A great deal has been said in recent years with reference to the attitvide of the church on educational matters. There have been times when it seemed somwhat of a question as to whether the educational forces of the church were really appreciated, and whether or not it was actually desired to have their services continued. Consequently s- j ) wm 1 .% V 1 A 1 i M mi iiii ii i iHir B i - t ' " J(8MI Sr«- ' ' ' j:? 5 » ' - cfLj f V Sg Sfe B Hp ' T m H ' ' •Itm ft 91 G O S li E X , I X D 1 A X A P a ii e T h i I- 1 e e u THE MAPLE LEAF 4i 4i $k this eanvass was more than a mere hiianeial proposition. It has been a means ot aseertauiin i ' the individual feelings that exist thruout the entire membership of the ehurch in the central states. In this respeet the outlook is encouraging. Ihe present indications are that with the proper amount of information brought before our people, together with a sympathetic atti- tude on those in positions of responsibility toward the growing sentiment for the proper education of our young people, the cause of education will prosper. It is no longer a question of what our people will do financially to maintain our educational institutions. They have spoken in no uncertain terms. These are some of the contributions of the past year to the cause of edu- cation. The ieveloinnents ot large movements are not jiiermaneutly arrested by ti ' iiipdrary iiiistc rtunes. There an ' crises in the history of institutions .just as in the lives ot individuals which nuike for larger usefulness and serv- ice. They reveal latent possiliilities and bonds of sympathy which would otherwise remain unrecognized and obscure. The purposes and motives of individuals are lirought into hold relief. The spirit of Christian fellowship and cooperation so vital in any great cause lakes on a new significance and reveals the divine hand whieli controls the destiny of individuals and insti- tutions. Foi- all tliese things we are profoundly grateful, and pra.v that fxod may share His richest blessings with those who have served so nobly in a worthv cause. t -ick i NINETEEN NINl yPEEN Page F o VI v t c c n m 4 m GOSHEN COLLEGE y fe GOSH EX.

Shank Secretary-Treasurer Edna Grosh In the fall of 1915 we arrived at Goshen College and organized into a class of over thirty. Our first yeiiv was uneventful. We were defeated by the Sophomores in the interelass debate, but that only spurred us on to greater eifort. As a result, success crowned our efforts ; we won the remain- ing three debates. A number of our class did not return the following year, consequently when we organized, assuming the name of Sophomores, our number was much smaller. We organized for the third time under the name of Juniors. By this time our number had diminished to fourteen. Though there was little demon- stration of our class spirit, we feel that the class was very loyal to the insti- tution and to the war-stricken France, since we contributed one of our mem- bers to the work of reconstruction in that country. Our Senior year has been the best of all. Only five of our original number returned, but ten more were added to our group. The class has manifested a great deal of class spirit and enthusiasm.

The school suffered a loss in the absence of liro. A. E. Kreider. The curriciduni had lieen revised somewhat and a few courses had been added. But one teacher could not do all the work that was advertised and called for liy the students. It was nec- essary to drop some courses, auil this resulted in some of tiu other classes becoming- too larg- ' fer tlie best work. With these cimditinn.s existing ' , the work in the Dei)artment could not lie as satsifactory as it otherwise woidd have been. There should be at least tAvo instructors in this De] ' artment. Last year there were several calls for one year of work leading toward the B. D. Degree. Several were planning in that direction when the Avar made it impossible for them to le in school. Since there are so many graduates attending other schools for tliis Avork. tliere is no reason Avhy Goshen College should not provide for this need. Tliose Avho are coming for Bible study are realizing nutre every year tliat a Short Term is not so helpful as the regular term of three months, and during the jiast Avinter practically all of tliose Avho canu» in stayed for the whole term, and a number for two terms. The indication.s are that imr young jieo- ple are beginning to a]ipreciate more fully Avhat systematic study can do for fine ' s oAvn sjiiritual life, aside from its ahu in prejiaring for aetiA ' e serAdce. The character-building poAver of Bible studv cannot le over-emphasized. xix]:t] ' :ex xixeteex %r t m P a ; e F o r t v - S i x 4k GOSHEN COLLEGE 3iamr (6 ran 15 ittirs EVERYWHERE vocational education is coming to the front because present day conditions demand it. Individuals who have been trained to do and to act constructively while at the same time trained to think, are called for in this era of r; c()nstruction. Society is no longer sat- isfied with tiie individual who is a mere machine in the doing of a piece of work, l)ut demands that the individual put pei ' sonality into the doing. Not the mere act of doing some work in a particular way but knowing why it is done in this manner satisfies the employer and at the sanu time In-ings .ioy to the worker. Training for home-making and house-keeping is one phase of vocational education, and is lieing recognized as a part of the present day college girl ' s education. We nmy admit that she lias an inherent instinct for house-keep- ing, but then we must also admit tiiat her l)rother has an inherent instinct for engineering. For years it has been considered proper that her brother further develop his instinct by going to an engineering school. Why should not she. his sister, develop her instinct in a Home Economics school? For, again the v.ar has reminded us, as all crises do, that the home as an institution for the development of character nuist be kept intact. The Home Economics department (il the College brings to a close the third year of its work and we feel that the department must continue to be a per- manent part of the institution, for if house-keeping is to be on an equal basis with other professions, it nmst be taui ht in our schools as a part of the reg- ular curricular. It is the aim of this di ' partment of the College to place house-keeping on a higher jdane ; to have all appreciate the work of the home; to show the activities of the household can be related to the strengthening of character of each memlier of the honu ' ; and to make the housekeeper feel that her work is not drudgery if she consideres the various activities not as mere ends in themselves but as means to an end, and that end the development of man- hood and womanhood that shall have a real share in the work of the world.

Peace Orators, and Intercollegiate De- baters, for the purpose of providing for and sujiervising debatintr and oratorical contests. The aim of the Association is to foster and maintain a wholesome class and school spirit. The Association has for a number of years held an imjtortant ])lace in the College, and has accomplished some very definite results. During the ])ast year a few changes were made in its work. The Junior and Senior classes decided not to debate ; the Freshmen and Sojihomore girls manifested a keen interest in debating; as a result of these conditions, it was decided to have a del)ate between the girls of the two lower classes. The Constitution was amended so that the membershi|) of the Association would include the Interclass orators. The local work done by tin- Association during the year was very success- ful. It was not found practicaljle to attempt to arrange any intercollegiate contests for the year, but there was a keen interest in liaving intercollegiate debates next year. There is some s])lendid material in the personnel of the . Association, and prospects are good for the return of able deliaters of former .vears. Tlie Association has anticipated tlie needs and possil)ilities of next year, and is now in correspondence with other colleges of the state, with the purpose of organizing a new triangle.

The courts have been in fine shape and in demand thruout the season. New nets were purchased for each of the five courts, and the courts have lieen kept well marked, so that it is a real pleasure to play on them. lost of the playing is done after the dinner hour, and during the extra hour that Fncle Sam has give i us. In the Fall Tennis Tournament, Prof. Fisher won the men ' s tennis championship. The girls were unable to finish their tourna- ments. This spring a number of tournanu-nts are being played in addition to the Men ' s and Women ' s single tournaments. The Interclass doubles ar. ' very interesting, and help to promote class loyalty. A ladies ' team and a men ' s team represent each class. For the first tinu in several years we have had inter-collegiate tennis. On ] lay 17 two teams from .Alancliester College, Giie composed of ladies, and one of men, played tAvo varsity games on the local courts.

During the fall term, owing to the lack of suitable material, there was no activity in athletics, but with the coming in of a numlier of new and old students, the interest was revived and a basketball tournament was arranged. Only three classes Avere able to put up teams. These classes, were the College Sophomores and Freshmen, and the Academy Juniors, and, to make it more interesting, a fourth team, a pick-up team, was organized, altho the defeats and victories of this team did not count. The championship was won by the Freshmen. At the beginning of warmer weather, base))all became the popular sport. The diamond was cleaned off early and the first practice began on th,- U)th of Mtrch. Some very good ball players were in evidence and this gave the boys the enthusiasm necessary for a good baseball team. The officers of the team elected were: ] Iartin Baer, Captain, and Veriinn Shoun, :Manager. Tlie team was soon chosen and games were played witli a number of neigh- boring towns, also from the city. In all these games tlie boys showed them- selves to be real ball players. We are glad to say that this year ' s team is one of the Im st C. C. las had for some time. GOSHEN COLLEGE BASEBALL SCORES Q.

The cabinets which are chosen with the help and advice of the pastor, meet weekly tln-ou ' liout the year for prayer and detinite plannini; of the work. Each committee acts for the whole association in one particular field. It investigates conditions, discusses projects and executes the plans ap])roved by the cabinets. The organization works with the one ])urpose of securing for the students their right to a useful, joyous aiul complete manhood and womanhood. A more detailed explanation of the work of the various committees is as follows : The mendtership committee looks after the new students as they arrive; cares for their baggage and helps them to adjust themselves to their strange surroundings. From the beginning of his school life at the college, the new student is made to feel that there is real interest taken in him. The student is urged to become a member of the Y. P. ( " . A. and in this way enter more fuUy into its various activities. This year the committee has secured the enrollment of a very high percentage of the students. Another part of the Committee ' s work is to organize prayer groups anu ng the students during the revival meetings. These groups meet for prayer each evening before services. Personal work is done in every way possible, both to win the non- Christians, and to strengthen character. Goshen College always has a large number of students who are anxious to obtain an education, but whose means are limited and who must worlv their way through school. As this class of students proves to be a strong asset to the college, it is very essential that their financial needs be taken care of. For this reason the Employment Department plays a large part in the work of the Y. P. C. A. The aim of this Department is to find work to be done at odd hours or on Saturday, and then apportion it out to t hose who need it. By this means many are able to earn part or all of their expenses while they are in school and are thus able to secure an education. This year, however, this departnunit was seriously handicapped. The war affected it by takiug the committeemen and the majority of the men who worked. During the fall term the influenza epidemic stopped the work of the department altogether ; but after the epidemic some steady work was secured and odd jobs became quite plentiful: so that in spite of the hind- rances the students earned about $150 during the year. The work of the Finance Committee is primarily that of raising and dis- tributing fuiuls for the support of the different religious activitites. Aliont m GOSHEN, INDIANA Paae Sixtv-Five forty per cent of the money raised is used in [ironiotinii ' the A ' (U ' k in tlie college eonnnunities, and aliout thirty j)er cent goes toward the paying of the expenses of traveling seei-etaries and the publication of literature for general distribution in the schools and colleges. The Y. ]M. C. A. Finance ' oniniittee also })ublishcs the yearly hand-book, which is of special value to the new students. In the contril)ntion that was made to Avar work and to the Student Mis- sionarv fund, the real spirit of service manifested itself in a splendid man- ner. About nine hundred dollars was given to these two funds. There is a firm conviction in the ininds of thinking Christian leaders that provisions nuist be made for the social needs of man, as Avell as for his more strictly mental and spiritual needs. The Y. P. C. A. recognizes this need, and thru the Social Committee, endeavoi ' s to provide occasional social gath- erings, carefully guided, and with the desired atmosphere. Great care is exercised that these gatherings be of the highest type. The aim is to give the student proper conceptions of good social standards, to develoj) ease and atfaliility in public gatherings. Two ac(iuaintance socials are held each year, at the beginning of the fall and the winter terms. Every spring occurs the annual i lay Day Outing. Aside from providing these general socials, the committee also endeavors to guide in some degree all the social activities of the school. The religious ideals of any college very largely deteruune the standards of life there. With this in mind, the Devotional Committee have made it their purpose in their work to emjdiasize the development of those qualities that bring conviction and character. In the Thursday W M. Devotional meet- ings, such subjects are chosen whicii provoke discussion on the vital proldems of real life, fost of the meetings are of the nature of an open discussion, but occasionally facult.v men and men of the city have spoken to us, and these talks have been very helpful, (hi each Wednesday evening short pra. er meetings are held, in which everyone is asked to take part. These prayer meetings are a means of binding the students together, and the source of uuich inspiration. The ( hristian Church of today is facing a peculiar situation. ] Ien every- where are realizing the imperative need of heeding the great commission of the Master, " Go ye " , if men would be saved from themselves and for the k ' ingdom. Leaders of the present forward movement are planning for a cam))aign to iiutbilize the entire membership of the chnrch in evangelism. ' ■K ( ' r Christian a Missionary " " , is the slogan. Tills situation has made a deep impression on the students of America, and especially upon those who have definitely faced it in Mission study classes. m NINETEEN NINETEEN %r S i X t V S i X GOSHEN COLLEGE Because the lission Study ( ' onnnittees felt the imperative need of gettiug this whole situation before the students, they chose J. Lowell ilurray ' s new book, " A World Task in AVar Time " , as a basis for study in all of the classes. Altho it was written during war tinie, it presents the situations very much as it is even now, emphasizing especially the need of an actual heart religion, and of giving it out to others in the largest possible way. The primary purpose of the course was to enlarge our vision of the world task of evangelizfftion. AVe feel that as a student body we realize more fully our responsibility in the great task of world Missions. The Bible Study Department provides for the Voluntary Study Courses which were given during the last half of the year. The central purpose of these courses is to develop Christian character. Small groujis wei-e organ- ized according to needs, with faculty members and students of upper classes as leaders. Books were chosen which are suitable for the Morning Watch, which is a part of the daily program. Every Tuesday evening the groups meet for a general discussion on the problems which may have come up during the week ' s study. A new feature of the Avork was the Leaders ' Training classes. These proved to be a valuable aid to the success of the courses. About eighty-tive per cent of the students were enrolled in the voluntary courses during the past year. The Extension Department endeavors to provide opportunity for Chris- tian service outside of the immediate college activities. Heretofore several gospel teams have been sent out during the holidays to conduct evangelisitic services in needy places, but owing to the epidemic the work this year has been limited principally to the college community. Services have been held at the city jail every Sunday afternoon. One hundred and tifty students rendered their service in telling the gospel story to ninety-five prisoners. Several times during the year upon invitation of the neighboring churches, a number of students took charge of the Sunday evening Young Peoples ' ileetings. Aside from the community work, the girls have cooperated with the local sewing circle in making various things needed in relief and reconsti ' uctiou work. The Association work for the year was fraught with many unusual and unexpected problems, but the splendid way in which everyone took hold of the task, and made sacrifices in order that the vital things in life might be kept uppermost, resulted in the development of a fine esprit de corps. To see men and women appreciating the real meaning of Christ in their lives, and choosing to live for Him, is the largest reward that can come to the Association worker. 5 GOSHEN, INDIANA Page Six t v - S even THE MAPLE LEAF tht dlitrrstmtt Mxtvkzx nxib. THE Christian Workers ' Band is the organization Avhich seeks to con- serve the missionary spirit of Goshen College. It is composed of those students of Goshen College who desire to prayerfully and sincerely study the problems of both home and foreign mission fields; and of those students who have definitely decided upon some specitic line of work under either of these phases of aggressive diristian effort. Tlie motto of the band is: " The Evangelization of the World in this Generation ' " . The object of the organization as given by the Constitution is four-fold: (a) To encourage a deep missionary spirit. (b) To study the qualifications of successful workers. (c) To cause every Christian student in deciding his or her life-work, to face the call to home and foreign missions. (d) To seek to have students, after the above (lualilications. to defi- nitely volunteer for sonu special phase of Christian work. The regular meetings which are held every alternate Sunday morning at 8:30, have proven a great source of inspiration to those students Avho wish to make their lives count for the most in the service of the Master. As a result of the work of the Band some of the students have volunteered for the foreign field, while others are plaiuiing to carry the Gospel to their fellow-men in the home-land. The work of the past year has l)een to study the problems confronting the church, in our home communities, city missions and the world at large. The following topics were some of the important ones discussed : " Our Challenge, Go Ye " ; " Problems of City ' dission Work " ; " Challenge to Mission Work " ; " Prayer Life " ; " Education, the Doorway to Service " ; " That Lump of Clay " ; " (3ur Relation to the Constituency; " and " Rela- tion to Our Home Community " . The Christian Workers ' Band lias made a definite contribution to the relig- ious life of the students. It has been the means of arousing in them a keen appreciation of the needs of both home and foreign fields. The officers for the past year were : Chairman Arthur Slagel Secretary-Treasurer ] Iarv Snyder Program Committee — Esther Sehott, .Mary Ann S|)ruiig( ' r, A. Fay Grass- myer, H. Clay Miller. NINETEEN NINETEEN Page Sixty-Eight GOSHEN COLLEGE €ht ffitmgtt .©itJutti r attit T HE Foreign Volunteer Band is composed of those students and niein- Iters of the faculty whose purpose is to become foreign missionaries. The motto of the Band is " The Evangelization of the World in this Generation ' . The church is indeed attempting a task which seems impossi- ble, but if it were other than impossible we should not hope to accomplish it. Christians of this generation carry a heavier responsibility than those of any preceding generation. As never before the whole world is open ; the conditions of peoples Avithout Christ are better understood ; the church is ready to support the work with increasing generosity: the need for workers was never so great. It is therefore the duty of every christian student to honestly face the question of foreign missions. The aim of the Band is to provide such association for the volunteer that his life and purpose is constantly kept before him. It also endeavors to bring to the stiident such fa cts as will encourage him to take a positive attitude toward the missionary enterprise, and enable him in an intelligent way to respond to the needs of the world. Meetings are held each week. The nature of the program varies. During the past year at every alternate meeting, the Band studied the work of our mission in India. The other meetings were informal, relating to discussions of immediate problems. Several new members were added to the Bai d during the year. Their presence has made a definite contriluition to the spirit of our work. OFFICERS President Xornian G. Bauman Secretarv-Treasurer Esther Schott a i i .

Thruout the week special prayer meetings were held to prepare the stud- ents for the campaign on Friday. It was keenly felt that to carry out such a project successfully Ave needed the power of God to help us. Posters Avere put up at conspicuous places to keep our minds on the coming event. These posters portrayed the conditions existing in Avar-ridden Europe, and sIioav- ed how we could help. The campaign culminated in a rally after the Friday morning chapel service. Prof. W. B. Weaver gave a pointed address on " The Need " . He said in part: " This is a period of reconstruction, a ucav era in Avorkl history. Devastated Europe is in need, and this morning Ave are brought face to face Avith the question, ' are Ave going to help E urope get on her feet again ' " ? Then Prof. Keller very clearly gave several reasons Avhy Ave should sacri- fice for this cause. lie made us feel that Ave wanted to do something for suft ' ering humanity. The pledge cards Avere distributed, and a blackboard brought in to record the pledges. This Avas done graphically by a sketch of a pump Avitli the arm of the students at the handle. The pail under the pump Avas graduated to indicate six hundred dollars as the goal. As the pledges came in, the pail sloAA ' ly began to fill. In the coTirse of a fcAv minutes it overHoAved. The total amount pledged Avas 71(1.2. " ). During the Aveek of April 7-12. 1919, a Avorld-fellowship drive Avas made. Short talks Avere given each morning at chapel to Aviden our horizon. The first morning Prof. DetAveiler told us of this nalion-Avide movement and its significance. (Jn Tuesday morning Miss Stalter sitoke to us out of her actual experience in India. Prof. Gerig on " Wednesday morning spoke on the need in Armenia. The last morning Prof. Keller appealed to the students to re- spond to the various calls that were coming. He emphasized the benefits one derives from j)articii)atiug in snch enter]n ' ise. During the next tAvo days private solicitation Avas made. Over Iavo hun- dred dollars Avas subscribed for foreign missionary Avork. We believe that by such jiersonal sacrifices Ave shall be able to do our part in the great Avork of reconstruction which is to be carried on in the next fcAV years.

Their work is vital to the proper balaneing of the stud- ent ' s program. They make possible a friendly rivalry in literary work, wliieh aids very mueh in the maintenance of a live sjnrit in any organ- ization. AVithout some rivalry there is littl( incentive to produce th: best that lies within the individual. The i rimary aim of the Societies is to give everyone an opportunity to produce original work, and to present it in his own style and manner. One of the best means of constructive development of the .student is the criticism which he receives in the course of the weekly program. The society critic. always some one with several years ' experience in society work, gives such suggestion ; on the speaker ' s performance that he may see lioth his strong and his weak jjoints. and thus be helped to develop inte a successful public speaker. The weekly pri ate meetings furnish excellent opportunities for frequent appearance on the program, thus making possible the development of everyone alcng the necessary lines. Every two weeks a conjoint jiublic jirogram is given in tin ' Assembly Hall, to which the public is invited. These programs fultill a three-fold purpose: first, they foster a spirit of society cooperation; second, they call for care and thoroness on the part of those who appear; and third, tliey make a real contribution to the College community. Some of the programs given were: ' " Reconstruction after the war " , ' " Pre- sentation of a Xew P]ngland Town Meeting " , and " Our College " . The ]iast year brought with it numy difliculties. For a time at the open- ing of the school year it seemed that the college men ' s societies would have to combine forces, because of the scarcity of men. However, work was be- gun under tin ' usual regime, and after the new men had all decided on their affiliations, it was found that forces were .iust evenly divided. It was the conviction of the nmjority that the customs of the institution should l)e maintained, if possible, for the sake of the future, and so the organizations were kejit intact. The increased attendance of men after the holidays fully .iustitied that decision.

Fay Grassmyer THE Students ' Library Association has during- the past year endeavored to carry out the purpose of the organization. The most important part of the year ' s work, no doubt, was that of the book committee in selecting and purchasing books for the library. In making its selection the book committee tried to choose books which are standard in character and which promised to be of general interest to the patrons of the library. The funds at the organization ' s disposal came through the usual channels: One- half of the initiation fees and two-tifths of the term fees collected by the literary societies make up the students ' library fund. The funds amounted to sixty-eight dollars and thirty cents. Thirty-eight volumes were pur- chased. BOOK CO.MMITTEE J. J. Fisher Faculty Representative Josephine Lehman Avon X. G.

The opening number of the course on December -t was a splendid reading of " Turn to the Right " , by Edwin M. Whitney. Ir. Whitney, who is a master in his art, brought home with unusual emphasis the transform- ing power of influence. The saintly niother whose every word and deed was permeated with a tender regard for the highest welfare of others, will linger long in the memories of those who heard the story. The resolutions of the wayward son and his companions to change their course in life, and the mother ' s influence which guided them into a noble career, was a most « %: GOSHEN, INDIANA rt ii %: THE MAPLE LEAF ' 9f£ inspiriii|r illustration of the reward of the Christian faith of a prayin " : mother. The lecture of Prof. Keller on the sub.ieet, " The Sesame of Getting ' On ' ,, was given to a. very ai)preeiative audience. Prof. Keller possesses the fore- sight to choose a practical, lively theme, the happy art of clothing that theme in interesting language, and the ability to give his message in such a clear and convincing manner, that one cannot but desire to be a better nuui for having heard liim. The burden of his nu ' ssage was that the secret of Avorth while progress is work, hard woi ' k, that prepares one for the larger tasks awaiting his ability to perform them. He emphasized the fact that work is not a curse. I)ut a blessing, and that the man who applies himself to the duties of life not only finds joy for himself but gives joy to others. Charles Crawford (jlorst Avho appeared on larch (i, gave us a pleasant surprise. His knowledge of birds, his interesting description of their habits, his almost perfect imitation of their songs and notes, and his beautiful pastel paintings done by himself in his study of bird life, made the evening a very delightful on?. On ] Iarch 28, George AY. Bain dt livered his lecture on " H ' I Had Life to Live Over " . Those who heard him were richly rewarded with the mature retieetions of one who has spent a long and strenuous life in the service of his fellowmen. President .James A. bhirns of Oneida Institute. Kentucky, gave a very interesting account on April !), of the work Avhich is being done among the Kentucky mountaineers. It was a simple story of sacriiice and whole-heart- ed service to bring enlightemnent and visions of a higher life to a race of people who have for generations been living under the blight of illiteracy. On A])ril 2 ' . Sarah lildred Willmer read the " Sign of the Cross " , in Avhich she gave a vivid jiortrayal of the severe persecutions of the early ( hristiaiis by the Roman Emperor Xero. Miss AVillmer used both her artis- tic temperament and her dramatic personality in a superb manner in the delineation of the characters of the great drama.

And a eappella chorus of more than seventy select voices making a study of sacred music, proved a very delightful featiire in the musical program of the year. On Easter Sunday this eiiorus rendered " The Conciuerer " , a beautiful cantata by Charles Gabriel, to two audiences of over six huiulred persons eacli. Tin; nunrber was enthusiastically received and the ( " horus highly complimented on its difficult undertaking. In addition to the present valued features of the School of hisic the direc- tor is planning for next year two courses that will no doubt prove to be as educationally worthy as they are novel. The tirst of these is a course of lessons in voice cidture to be given in class in place of the usual private les- sons. The second is an extension of the course in music appreciation by the use of the phonograph, thus making music stiidy possible to many who have heretofore been deprived of this pleasure. Judging from these and other plans of the faculty and present students, and of the prospective students who are fully intending to be here, the (4. C. School of ]Musie will easily " go over the top " in (luality and (|uantity in the ensiling year. EUNK ' K (UTTFT Graduate Diploma Coui-se in Piaiid Miss Guth possesses a ((uiet dignity, a geniality, an ability as a pianist, and a willingness to serve, that have won for her a warm place among the students. A graduate of the three year certilieate course in 1918, she returned to continue her studies and to assist in the music department. GOSHEN, INDIANA i - Pa F o r t V - X i n e THE MAPLE LEAF School of AcRICUbTURE A(iKirrLTURE, iu the eyes of a certain authority on this science and art, " is the oldest and most important occupation known because it is fundamental to all other occupations of man. Indeed civilization cannot lonii- exist without agriculture " " . The generalizations in the al)ove statement seem to be sweeping-. The last few years however have impressed us with the fact that the pro-ducts of tlu ' agriculturalist are essential. Starvation in Asia Minor, Germany ' s eagerness during the war to secure the wheat fields of I ' krania, America feeding the Allies, are all instances Avhicli reminded us that agriculture was called upon to do a big bit in nmintaining if possilde the life of })eoples and of nations. Selective conscriinion nuide provisions to kee}) the agriculturalist at his post and the government gave him every encouragement to produce as many extra bushels of wheat as possible. The licusewife was asked to come to his assist- ance by con.serving as she had never consei ' ved before. So too. the preacher, X- X Jl ' ' " " ' 1 MHj ggm g ' gH ggwamm H H Hp H HE .

All the knowledge from the various sciences which had any bearing on the production of crops, was placed by them at the disjiosal of the producers. Although the past year has l)een an important one for agriculture it has not been a flourisiiing one for the School of Agriculture. The opening of the school year found the young men in camps or on farms, and the Dean of the School of Agrii ' ulture on leave of absence. Consequently, only a mini- nuuu amount of work in this department could be given. " The better I am acquainted with agricultural affairs, tli; ' letter 1 aiiT pleased with them ; inasmuch, that I can nowhere find so great satisfaction as in those innocent and useful pursuits " . — George Washington.

Its schools, departments and courses were organized to prepare tlic student for teaching, office -work, agriculture or active religious work. As the institution grew, more em])hasis was placed upon the cult- ural side of education, and the Liberal Arts course became the prominent feature. At the present time the tendency in education is to combine the cultural and the practical, and vocational courses are taking their places in High School and College curricula. The School of Business has outlined its eovirse to fit in with the academy and coU-ege work and yet meet the demands made upon business schools — that of preparin ' g young men and women to fill clerical positions. In tliis we feel that it has succeeded in the past. A roll call of the Alumni and former .students would show that not only are many graduates succeeding in busi- ness, but many have gone into advanced educational Avork. We hope that the School may continue to be a valuable asset to Goshen College.

' (- F i t t y - T w o GOSHEN COLLEGE 4£ o axmnl Schmxl THOSE in charge of the work of the Normal School feel that in train- ing teachers they are preparing for a profession than which there is none more important. To the teacher falls the task of developing, modifying and directing the unformed, potential powers of the child, to the end that he shall become efficient in adjusting himself to the various elements of the environment in which lie lives. The way in which the teacher per- forms her task depends largely upon her appreciation of the importance of her calling, her understanding of child nature, her knowledge of the subjects she teaches, her mastery of effective methods of teaching, and her possession of high ideals, noble purposes and a desire to grow. The imparting of these in the largest measure possible constitutes the aim of the Normal School. The enrollment in the Normal School during the year past was about the same as usual. A number of those enrolled continued their courses for two or three terms. Indiana teachers are not required to do more than twelve weeks of normal work. A number of students taking the major part of their work in other fields, who were planning to teach and who were not enrolled in the Normal School, took the professional course in the Normal School. Considerable attention was given to the observation of actual teaching, both in the model rural school and in the city schools. This work is very valuable because it makes possible the correlation of theory and practice which is no less important than in other fields. Students have put forth honest effort and a splendid spii ' it has prevailed thruout the year. age F i f t V - T h r e e THE Sumuiei- School is a wide-awake department of the institution, though distinctly different from the regular school work. This is due to the fact that very few student org-anizations of the ' regular school year exist at this time. There are no inter-class contests, no glee clubs, no literary societies, nor any of the many other activities that occupy much of the time and attention of the student of the regular year. The Normal department is the most prominent de])artment of the Summer School because the greater nuinber of students are either teachers or pros- pective teachers. However, special courses are offered for those who wish to make up Academic or College credits. Quite a large attendance is also found in the music and lousiness schools. One of tlie prominent features of the Normal department is the Model School. About twenty children from the neighborhood entered the school and were i)i charge of Miss ] IcKenzie, who is a trained expert in this line of work. She has met Avith good success here during the summer terms. She gives the prosjtective teachers a good example of expert teaching, and ama- teur practice, lioth of which are essential in the training of a teacher. The attendance fell slightly below that of sonu ' of the previous summers. Especially was this true of the young men. They were outnumbered tive to one by the young women. The total attendance for the summer was one hun- dred twenty-tive. This lack of men hindered any great interest in athletics. Baseball was out of the (|Uestion, but a strong tennis association was organized. The officers of the association were: President, Xorman IJauuuui; Secre- tary-Treasurer, Verda Yodei ' . Almost every evening and often early in the morning the courts were occupied by contestants. Indoor base-ball also be- came very popular. The religious, social and literary phases of the Summer School wei-e in charge of committees appointed by the Dean. .4 NINETEEN NINETEEN 4 y 4fy 4 I £ GOSHEN COLLEGE .1 t: . The eoiuinittee on rt4igious life arranged for a Hible study elass to meet every Tuesday afternoon, under the leadership of Prof. AVitmer. The book. " Faiths of Mankind " ' , was studied and Prof. Witmer made it very interest- ing. Bi-weekly devotional exercises were also held. The programs of these devotionals varied. Sometimes there was in interesting- address liy some faculty memlier or student, or perhaps an open meeting when all present took part in an open discussion. The social life among the Summer School students, was as usual, a signifi- cant part of the general activities. Early in the term an acquaintance social was held on the campus. After various games, stunts and speeches every one was supposed to know e eryone else. Other socials wei-e held by small groups and a number of boating parties, some including the entire student body and some private, were enjoyed throughout the summer. The work done in a literary Avay was centered in the Country Life Club. This cluli was organized in 191:?. and has l)een a distinct organization of the GOSHEN, INDIANA § . 94i m f a 1 1 " i f t V - F i THE MAPLE LEAF r Suuiincr St-liool siuee then.

The programs were arranged for l)oth entertainment and instruc- tion. ] Iusic, readings, addresses and orations held the same place they do in literary society work of the regular year. The usual amount of practicing was heard daily tliroughout the l)uilding, which gave evidence of ti ' .e work of the music school. A recital of the work done was given near the close of the term. A mixed chorus was organized and directed hy Prof. Ebersole. " David, the Shepherd Boy " , was rendered by the chorus in the college auditorium, and later at the Christian church. The Summer School students always have the advantage of the Goshen Chautauqua which was held in the Chautauqua tent on the ] Iadisou street school campus the first week of August. The forenoon sessions were for the teachers, taking the place of the Elk- hart County Teachers " Institute, but practically ev( ry student attended the afternoon and evening sessions. On the whole, the Summer term of 1918 was up to the iisual standard in quality of work done, and the whole term was full of interesting incidents.

Everything in the atmosphere tends to stimulate thot. The value of the mind as a trained instrument is contiiuudly emphasized. h ' ioijiality is at a i»reinium and unlimited research in matters of science, history and religion is encour- aged. The different experiences in college life reach different needs of the student. In the laboratory the student Avorks out scii ' utific theory hy ju-ae- tical application; principles of social responsibility and crnnnmnity living are worked out thru participation in student government; literary opinions are worked out by themes and papers. In a liK ' e manner the principle and convictions of the religious life of the students are most naturally worked out thru a student Christian Association. Thus the intellectual emphasis of college life is utilized, supplemented and ronndi ' d out by the Christian As- sociation, wliich provides oiijiortunity for the expression of religious faith and service. The puri)ose of the Young Peojdes " Christian Association is to bring the student into closer relations with Jesus Christ. In order to realize this pur- pose, it is necessary that the organization provide help in every line of stud- ent activity. Certain connnittees have been given the responsibilty of meet- ing these various needs. These connnittees constitute a body of Christian students who cooi)erate in bringing men and wonu ' n face to face with the character of Jesus Christ; in giving encouragement to face life ' s problems; in introducing Christianity as a practical religion ; and in emphasizing serv- ice as a means of growth. It necessarily follows then that such an organization is of value to the degree that its activities are iniatiated and carried on by the voluntary serv- ice of the students. Members of the various classes and connnittees who are engaged in such service develop a sense of moral responsibility not f)idy for living the Christian life themselves, but for exerting a positive moral intiu- ence in the college community. This responsibility demands self-expression that almost inevitalily leads the st ulent to make moral decisions and to face the claims of Chi ' ist ujion his life. The Association is divided into two main divisions at whose head are the Young 31en " s ( ' al)inet and the Yonng XYonian ' s ' Jabiiu ' t . Each ca])inet is composed of ! • mendiers who are directly responsible for the religious life among the students. The President of the Y. J ( " . A. is President of the Y. M. Cabinet. The Vice-President of the Y. P. C.

' e O n e Hun il red Two sfe: GOSHEN COLLEGE m m The lATKON is the eon!iiiandeei--iii-c]iief of Kulp Hall. Her duties are many. She is at guard at all times, and does patrol duty during the early watches of the night. She turns out the lights. She rings the rising bell. She answers door-bells and telephone eal ' s. She carries meals to tin patients. She sends little envelopes to deserving young ladies. She is the friend of anxious young men. She gives valuable advice to Miss Williams. She is kind and sympathetic. She is a dear. The FOUNTAIN is a young geyser which from April! till November sends its spray into a blue-green lake on the college campus. The uses of this lake are varied. It serves as a tish-pond, a bath-tub, a background for snapshots, and a place where corporal punishment is sometimes indicted. Joy-riders on the College cart are sometimes slid into it. Xo young man ' s education is complete Avithout at least one ducking in its clear cold water. That GRECIAN SEAT is a double, white cement affair (supposed to re- semble marble), situated near the fountain. It is an ideal place to en.joy starlight and moonshine. All former Gosheuites have fond memories of it. Every student, at some time or other during his college career, has had his picture taken upon it. The COLLEGE CART is a two-wheeled vehicle, supposed to be found under the Kulp Hall porch, but seldom is when it is wanted. It is the official means of conveyance for the Membership Comm. of the Y. P., and in the discharge of that function has borne many heavy responsibilities. It is also Oliver ' s faithful assistant on Monday morning. It has conveyed many a picnic luncheon to the woods. It is the most widely used and least appre- ciated vehicle on the campus. We l)espeak for it a more thotful consider- ation on the part of the students during the remaining years of its active service. The STUDENTS ' COUNCIL is an organization established for the pur- pose of conciliating two forces — the faculty and the student Itody. It has the weighty prerogative of giving ignored, unheeded advice to the faculty. KULP HALL is a three-storied red brick building, to the girls simply a plain and unadorned abiding-place, but to the boys a thing of beauty and a .103- forever. Since the inmates of the building are regularly locked in at 8 o ' clock in the evening, and turned loose at 6:15 in the morning, it has been likened to a chicken coop. The RENNER HOUSE is the dwelling place of certain stalwart young men of Goshen College. It has been likened to Paradise and the Garden of Eden. Its inmates live in simple, primitive style, and have been known to shave with one cupful of water among them. As the.v are kept in cold stor- age, they are always found fresh and agreeable. Bolshevism is said to reside ir. their midst. GOSHEN.
