Ihfluonco'hns been UBed with the rail
roads to got them to reduco the fare,
but they havo firmly refused to give
anything bettor than the two-cent
fate. The stand of the railroads has
been a great disappointment to many
students who had planned on making
Jho trip if .a reduced faro wero se
cured. Several of the students will
go to Lawronce, however, and Ne

Held to Be a Most Serious Question
by Professor Charles R. Erd-
man of Princeton College.
Tho current issuo of Tho Inter
collegian contnlns nn article on "Tho
'Colloglan and the Church," by Pro
fessor Charles R. Erdman of Prince
ton, in which that gentleman givos a
serious discussion of the rolatlons of
the students to tho local churches of
the collego towns. Tho artlclo has
called forth consldorablo comment
and for that reason is roprintod horo.
It follows In part:
One if tho most serious questions
to bo faced nnd solved by undergrad
uates Is that of thoir personal rela
tion to tho local churches In tho cltios
or towns where they nro spending
their student days. It is a problem
of supreme importance to tho student,"
because by Its right solution his rollg
iou8 experience and future career are
of ton determined; the relation to tho
church which one recognizes as an
undergraduate Is tho relation which
ho usually maintains throughout life.
It is a matter of deep concern to tho
local churches, because if tho con
tributions to thoir life which students
may make. It Is of vital Interpst to
the church nt largo, because, of tho '
leadership and support which the
church expects from collego gradu
ates. Thoro is today, both within and
boyond the college worl'd, ran
evident tendency td underestimate"
tho character and functions of
the Christian church. There is
a temptation to forgot its claims,
its means qf grace its spiritual
oversight, its divine establishment and
mission, and to accopt other religious
organizations and institutions, as sup
plying ull possible needs for Christian;
life and service. Chapel exercises, the
activities of tho Christian Association,"
and student meetings, are all admir
able In their place and purpose, but
their very excollenco often makes tho
undergraduate oblivious of tho exis-
tence and clalmB of tho church. It
should be said of the Young Men's
Christian Association, and tho same is
true of other similar organizations,
that those who are most eager for Its
advancement and have -been most
prominent In Its promqtlon have novor
regarded It as a substitute for the
church but as an instrument of tho
church to be employed by it iri increas
ing its efficiency, in adding to Its en-,
rolled membership, especially in bring
ing young men into its lifo and activi
ties. There Is, however, even where
tho Association is most widely con
ducted, a very evident danger thqt all
church relationships may be neglected,
not only by those students who kro
characterized by 'religious indifference,
but oven by those who arq actlvo In
Christian work. Each Btudent should;
seriously ask himself this question,
