MISSIONS IN CHINA
Wonderful opportunities in
IVY DAY ON MAY 13
APRIL 10; 8:30 P. M.
Need of Workers and Money for Mis
sionary Purposes Emphasized
By Miss Patterson.
At Convocation yesterday morning,
Misb Patterson, an American woman
who has seen several year's service
as a missionary in ChlnaMsppke en
tertainingly on the opportunities of
. that country. Miss Patterson con
cluded her talk with a plea for contri
butions to aid in the building of a hos
pital in China.
"China," said Miss PaterBon, "Is a
great country. It is great In extent of
territory, great in population, great in
resources, groat in ancient history
and civilization, but greatest in oppor
tunity. China contains one-tliird of all
the people of the world. One province
alone has enough coal and iron to sup
ply the world for a thousand years.
These resources are undeveloped and
offer the greatest of opportunities.
"The Russo-JapaneBe war put In
calcuable forces in motion. In China
today the most wonderful changes are
taking place, changes more wonderful
than those in Japan a hundred years
ago. Humanizing influences are at
work among the people,. Yet the work
is only begun. The changes accom
plished only offer greater opportunities
for those who take advantage of the
field. ye missionaries believe in vic
tory. Back of all the wars, baqk of
off the bloodshed, back of all the
changes, we see the hand of our God.
In the end China will stand on her feet.
"Today is a day of opportunity In
every line in China. There is an op
portunity for engineers, for printers,
and for men of other trades. There
is an opportunity for Christian minis
ters to preach the gospel. Bur the
Chinese cannot be exploited. For this
reason the American tradesmen are
"now in disrepute in-China. The Chin'
ese have arsaying: 'First the red man,
then the black man went, but-the yel
low" man will not go.'
"Wlth these opportunities,.- other
lines, China is open to the gospel' as
never before. Here in America we
have one minister to every five hun
dred people or less.' "In " one district
in China there are only-three missioh
arles to three million people. At the
present time Chinese officials are seek
ing western civilization. Schools are
opening fror the girls. The difficulty
is that teachers are lacking. The
Chinese" look' to' the missionaries for
educational leaders. Hundreds of stu-
dents go to Jftpan, iJhere to be sub
jected to the immoral Influences of the
Eastern life. These students-are kept
oiit of this country by our unjust exclu
sion law's. That matter is something
. which you must change.
$ "Two graduates of this university
. one of them, Dr- Tucker are npw
working in a city twice the size, of Chi
cago which has 'only one' hospital. The
Chinese think' that all sickness is duo
to the evil spirits; They torture the

Entertainment to Be Given In Fraterni
ty Hall Tonight.
The Junior Informal tonight is the
first one of these popular forms' of en
tertainment that this class' has given
this year. The class 1b making this
change In established custom because
of the fact that many of the class who
do not attend such formal functions as
the Junior Prom would like to attend
a function given by their own class.
The dance will occur In the popular
Fraternity hall, and will begin prompt
ly at oig'ht thirty. This feature of the
affair will be appreciated by all who
are accustomed to see the dance drag
until after nine and the length of the
acutal dance shortened thereby. The
tickets will be limited to eighty and
this rule will be strictly observed. This
obviated all fear of a crush such as
has disgraced several of the past
dances given this year.
The music will bo furnished by Ab
bott's orchestra and the refreshments
by an out-of-town caterer. Tickets are
one dollar and a quarter and may be
secured of the commltte or at the
door until the full amount have been
sold. The committee consists of Guy
Matteson, chairman; F. M. Weller,
master of ceremonies; Fern Loet,
Helen Gray, Gertrude Nlelson and F.
