America's culture and attainment in Christian civilization is best shown by iter countless churches and colleges. They stand as the greatest exponents to civilization and higher standards of citizenship. Although the Normal is a state institution, a high moral tone exists and an active Christian spirit is evidenced on every hand. 'Phis splendid condition is due for the most part to the support and interest of the churches of the city. The pastors ever seek to aid the students in every possible way and the churches are united in their efforts for the benefiting of the student life. This co-operation is a benefit to all. and a just mention of Normal life cannot be made without mentioning the church activities.

At the close of her talk she said that if any one wanted to talk with her further about missions she would be glad to talk with them. Several expressed a desire to hear more.
