Page 130 text:
THE RAVELING5 OF 19 21 One Hundred Twenty-two Y. M. C. A. For another year the Y. M. C. A. has filled an important place among the student activities. During the past year the Y. M. Cabinet has had the co-operation of the City Y. M. C. A. and together they have ministered to the needs of the college men better than either alone could have done. The Y. M. C. A. welcomed new students at the first of the year and performed different forms of campus service from time to time. The stu- dent directory was published by the Christian Associations. The social side was taken care of by the Y. M. and several receptions and parties were held. The students have had the privilege of hearing during the past year Dr. Zwemer, Dr. Orr, Rev. Calhoun, Dr. Rankin, Dr. Kyle, Rev. Clements, and others. These thru their helpful talks in chapel and personal conferences have left a deep impress upon the students. The weekly Sabbath afternoon meetings tho not so well attended as in former years, have admitted of open frank discussion, and have proved to be an active force in molding campus life. Three good meetings held during the fall took up the three parts of the Y. M. Triangle, the body, mind, and spirit. At two of these meetings Prof. Caldwell and Dr. Barr were speakers. The membership was over a hundred, the average attendance was about thirty, and a budget of $300 was raised. Delegates attended the Lake Geneva Student Conference last summer, the Student Volunteer Convention in De- cember, and to the State Convention of the Student Volunteers this spring. To help defray the expenses of the Des Moines Convention, the Y. M. and Y. W. C. A. staged the play " Miss Somebody Else. " For the first time in several years the Y. M. C. A. sent out gospel teams to various churches near Monmouth and held services. Deputations also visited the County Farm (mi Sabbath afternoons during good weather. The year just closed has been a successful one for the Y. M. C. A. It has filled a place in the campus life which no other organization could under- take, and no doubt in the future the College Y. M. will help and be helped even UKjre than in the past.

THE RAVELINGS OF 1921 One Hundred Twenty-four Y. W. C. A. The work of the Y. W. C. A. for the year 1919-20 was directed by the " Carr)- On " Cabinet. The various activities of the Association were advanced along the usual lines with a few innovations. During the year the Association numbering 170 members, held 29 meetings with an average attendance of 72. The Tlig Sister Movement and the Sunshine Circle were continued from last year. The former proved so successful in helping the new girls to be- come acquainted- that it has established itself in the work of the Association. The Sunshine Circle was carried on at the Ninth Avenue Church by the Social Service Committee. The Morning Watch was established at the Dormitory for the first time. The early social activities of the year were the Y. M. and Y. W. recep- tion, torch-light parade, and a get-acciuainted party for the girls. Later in the year a St. Patrick ' s Party was held by the Y. M. and Y. W. Monmouth had the privilege of entertaining the Cabinet Council. Seven delegates were sent t othe Lake Geneva Conference, six to the Student Volun- teer Convention at Des Moines, and five to the State Volunteer Convention at Peoria. Elizabeth McClenahan was the under-graduate field representa- tive from this district, representing William and ' ashti, Hedding, Carthage, and Monmouth at the J. T. R. Convention at Chicago. Among the visitors that we have enjoyed having with us during the past year are Miss Slolte, Student Secretary of this field, Miss Dickev, Dr. 6rr, Rev. Calhoun, Dr. Ixankin, and Dr . Hunt. One of the important features of the work was the mission study classes directed by Miss Ella Barnes and Mrs. J. G. Hunt for a period of six w^eks. The Association went over the top in its missionarv offering and the interest shown here was the same as was manifested in all the other lines of work thruout the year. " I would be true, for there are these who trii.st me; I would be pure, for there are those who care ; I would be strong, for there is much to suffer ; I would be brave, for there is much to dare ; I would be friend to all, the foe, the friendless ; I would be giving and forgive the gift; I would be humble, for I know my weakness ; I would look up and laugh, and love, and lift.
