THE YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION THE purpose of the student Y. M. C. A. at River Falls is to foster active Christian interest among the men students of the college. During the past year the organization has had an unusually large membership, and it has carried on a varied program throughout the year. Regular meetings of the Y. M. C. A. are heldeach Monday evening in the Men's Union. These meetings usually consist of musical numbers and talks on some subject of interest. Among the out-of-town speakers wh.o addressed meet- ings this year were: Dr. O. T. Walter .of Macalester, Dean Price of Stout Institute, C. Stanley Lamb of the St. Paul Y. M. C. A., and Ben Schmoker, executive secretary of the Christian Association at the University of Minnesota. Several faculty members also addressed some of the meetings. Among them were Dr. Wyman, President J. H. Ames, Dr. Karges, and Prof. W. H. Hunt. Cabinet business sessions are held once a week, usually following the regular Monday evening meeting. The cabinet also meets twice a month for Sunday morning breakfast. At these meetings the time is spent in the discussion of some problem. As usual, several projects were sponsored jointly by the Y. M. C. A. and the Y. W. C. A. during the year. Among them were the freshman mixer, the Thanksgiving program, the Christmas program, and the Easter service. These programs were held on Sunday afternoons in the auditorium. The play given at the Christmas program, "Peace I Give Unto You," was repeated several times on later occasions. A gr.oup of discussions was also sponsored jointly. These meetings were held during the first three weeks of February. During these discussions the organizations were divided into smaller groups so that each group could choose its topic. This series of meetings was closed by an address by Ben Schmoker of Minneap.olis. The freshman mixer held this year was a new activity. It was held in the evening of the opening day of school, giving opportunity for the freshmen and the faculty to become acquainted. The mixer was well attended, and it is probable that similar mixers will be held in future years. The annual spring retreat was held at Big Lake in the latter part of May. Most of the cabinet members attended this retreat, and plans were made for the activities f.or the year. The fall retreat, held at the same place, was held during the Hrst week in September. At that time, final plans were made for most of the year's work. The student conference held at Lake Independence on May 16 and 17 is one event which is always well attended by River Falls students. At this con- ference tbe students have an opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with others from colleges in northwestern Wisconsin and in Minnesota. Each year some of the members of the Y. M. C. A. attend the student conference at Lake Geneva. This year Professor Jacobson, Le Roy Alexander, and Leonard Hermanson attended that conference. ' The Y. M. C. A. also took an active part in the Homecoming activities. Instead of entering a float in the competition for prizes, the "Y" built the float on which the Homecoming queen rode in the parade. A Homecoming banquet was also held, and many former cabinet members attended. The final meeting of the year was the installation banquet which was held at the Congregational Church. Rev. Gordon Amphlett was the speaker. Six new cabinet members were installed on this occasion. ll65l

THE YOUNG WOMEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION HE Y. W. C. A. on the campus is a branch of the national Y. W. C. A. The aim of this organization is very well expressed in the purpose which is as follows: We, the members of the Young Wornen's Christian Association, unite in the desire to realize a full and creative life through a growing knowledge of God. We determine to have a part in making this life possible for all people. In this task we seek to understand Jesus and to follow Him. The governing body of the Y. W. C. A. is the cabinet with Miss Irma Hathorn as its adviser. The cabinet is organized in committee groups, the pur- pose of the committees as a whole being to fulfill the needs of every girl on the campus, in other Words, striving for individual participation. The Y. W. C. A. works continuously throughout the entire year. Each Monday night is set aside as "Y" night. On these evenings varied programs are presented. Some of the most outstanding programs of the past year were the Candlelight Service, Amateur Night, and various musical and discussion hours. A few meetings were given over to outside speakers. On special occasions, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter, joint worship services with the Y. M. C. A. were held in the auditorium. These programs were especially outstanding. At the Christmas program the play, "Peace, I Give Unto You," was presented, and at Easter the play, "The Things That Are Caesar's," was given. During the month of February we held four meetings with the Y. M. C. A. These discussions were on the subjects, "What are we in college for?", "Is Campus popularity worth seeking?", and "Social relations between men and women." The fourth meeting was a large group meeting at which Ben Schmoker, Secretary of the Y. M. C. A. at the University of Minnesota, was the guest speaker. In the fall the Y. W. C. A. jointly with the Y. M. C. A. put on a freshman mixer which was held during the first week of school. The Y. W. C. A. also promotes the Campus Sister Movement, which is an upper classman adopting a freshman girl and assisting her in the difHcult process of becoming acquainted with the school and college life in general. Sometime during the irst week the "Y" girls have a tea at which time the older girls bring their little sisters. Homecoming, one of the biggest times of the entire year, found the Y. W. C. A. with a lloat in the parade and a luncheon for present and past members. The luncheon is outstanding in that it gives girls a chance to really see old friends and feel that they are still a part of the organization of the "Y." Early in the spring is the annual Puff-Pant Prom which is the biggest social event of the "Y" year. It is a prom, yes! but only girls may participate. Men are strictly excluded. Y During the year are two conferences of great interest to the One is at Lake Independence, Minnesota, in the spring. At this conference schools in the Minnesota-Northern Wisconsin area are represented. The other is our summer conference at Lake 'Geneva in the southern part of Wisconsin. This is a longer, more important conference at which Y. W. C. A. members from nine states are represented. This is the outstanding conference for this region. Here are speakers of interest: here plans are gathered and formulated for another year's work: here we may participate in recreational as well as mental and spiritual activities. Through this conference we may hope to bring back to our campus some of the fire and enthusiasm of what we call the "Geneva Spirit." ll671
