Enrichment of life experiences and a closer relationship with God is the goal of the Y. W. C. A. The Quest Groups of Re-interpretation of Religion, Personal Relations, Creative Leisure, and World Cooperation seek to serve as a means to this end.
The Christmas season was a busy one for Y. W. C. A. members. A pageant, written and produced by Y. W. C. A. members, was presented at Convocation. In addition the group sponsored carolling. Finally, a Japanese sale of Christmas gifts was conducted in the Eliza Morgan Parlors.
Mrs. Clara Schwiess, an outstanding personality in the field of Y. W. C. A., was a visitor on the campus early in 1937. Xine delegates from Peru attended the summer conference at Estes Park, Colorado, and fourteen attended the conference at Hastings, Nebraska, in March.

T„k Girls Club is the truly democratic organization of the campus. Every girl in school is welcomed to membership. This eighteen-year-old club, having as its aims: the cultivating of inner poise and grace, promoting of friendship and good fellowship, uniting in action, creating a cultural and appreciative atmosphere, manifesting cooperation for the betterment of the social and ethical standards, making a place for real fun and pep at the proper time, creating a spirit of individual devotion, forming a worthwhile relaxation period, aiding in a financial stress period, works for the development of purer womanhood.
The residence girls are organized under the leadership of Vivian Lambert, and they enjoy a social hour each week in the Music Hall auditorium, where a closer bond of friendship is accomplished for the girls in the residence homes.
One of the longest remembered parties each year is that of the Girls Club. Unique ideas are worked out within the group, later to be participated in by all members. Selections from the party programs are not infrequently presented in Convocation programs. This year the “Parade of the Months” constituted the theme. Every birthday month was represented by some act or pantominc.

Tie Y. M. C. A . is an organization of the men on the campus who strive to live by Christian principles. The group through study and experience feels that the ideals of Christ are still sound and applicable to modern life.
The purpose of promoting growth in character and fellowship among the student body is accomplished by weekly meetings. Religious inspiration is offered by the discussions of everyday problems.
1886 saw the opening endeavors of the Y. M. C. A. upon our campus. This, the “Y’s” fiftieth year, has been progressive. Delegates have been sent to Estes Park, Colorado, and other conferences and retreats, the annual Father and Son Banquet was jointly sponsored by the “Y” and Kiwanis club, and the group has brought notable speakers as Dr. Ennis with philosophies and discussions on social life, creative leisure, etiquette and dress, national government, and peace problems. Cooperation with the Y. W. C. A. to provide interesting joint meetings has been successful.
The Y. M. is a worthy organization, and it inspires its members to a higher plane of thought and action.
