Lliving testimonial to tho power of
Christianity which was strong enough
to draw these young peoplo away from
tho good times at their homes during
tho holiday to "this mount of inspira
tion," as tho meeting was often char
acterized in tho addresses.
In addition to being a source of re
ligious inspiration, tho convention In
Its effects showed that tho ago of
miracles has not passed. Delegates
thero saw with their own oyes con
versions of young men and women who
Tiad much to givo and who, under tho
power of tho dominant note of the
whole period "tho evangelization, of
tho world in thlB generation" which
is tho motto of tho Studont Volunteer
Movement, gave It up willingly. Tho
work waBdono quiotly and without
unduo omotion. Tho-array of speak
ers included tho host in tho country
all men with a message. Tho em
phasis was, of course, put on tho need
of mon and womon volunteers in
tho foreign Jlold; but tho need at
home, in Christian work-and-in-the-
uwuua proieasions, was not over
looked. Tho aim of tho wholo meet
ing was, first of all, to get tho Chris
Dr. John R. Mott presided over tho
publle meetings, and also made two
of tho public addresses. Dr. Robert
E. Speor, tho associato with Dr. Mott
in tho Volunteer Studont Movement In
America, was ono of the leaders, and
among tho other speakers were Sec-
State William JennlHW
Bryan, Dr. S. M. Zwemor (who eam
all tho way from Egypt" expressly to
present the needs of tho moslom world
to tho convention). Dr. Sherwood
Eddy, An associato with Dr. Mott In
tho trip around the world in the in
terest of missions made -during tho
past year. Public meetings occupied
tho morningind ovoning hours, while
tho afternoons wore given over to sec
tional and denominational confer
ences. In 'actual results tho informal, the
personal, and delegation meetings hold
at times convenient for thnnnnp-
cBieu, accomplished tho most. It was
here that tho power of God In trans
forming lives made itself visiblo In
In one group from ono of tho larger
Eastern universities thero was a young
studont who 'came to tho final delega
tlon meeting of tho T&rlod, held on
Sunday night following tho big meet
ing. His Impression of tho convention
.and its power had not beeTi favorable.
Ho owned to being Impressed by the
"bigness" of tho thing, but his own
soul had failed to get its inspiration.
He confessed to the need of mon in
tho foreign fields, ho saw tho immedi
ate character of the demand, but for
him it had stopped thero. .Tho -link
connecting HIM with this need had
not appeared. Ho camo into this dele
gation mooting half discouraged. It
camo his turn to -speak to tell frank
ly and plainly just what tho conven
tion had, meant to him. Thoro was a
hesitating pause and then those sim
matter with mo, haven't jiaOeara in
my oyes for ton years not since' ono
of my very dear friends died. But I
can't keep them back tonight." I am
all at sea. I want vou to nmv tn
and with mo. I am going to pray now
and I want you to help me."
He dropped to his knees, and prayed
in broken sentences to a God which
lifted him up later a changed man
with hia outlook cleared completely.
At ono of tho luncheons, given Joint
ly by two or tho delegations, tho sub
ject under discussion in -tho after
dinner speeches was "Why" I Volun
teered to Go to the Foreign Field."
Thero sat by tho side of tho chairman
a young man 'from tho East who had
signed a "volunteer", card that morn
ing, but his signature had failed to
produco in him any enthusiasm.

however. Thero was a young Jow
an orthodox Hobrow from an East

convention with a comploto under
standing of what tho appeal was to bo'
Hojvont at tho request of tho Chris
tlan socioty leador of his University
to test out his Jewish faith and meas

out for four days. Ho roomed with
ono of tho strongeflt-vniing-nhri,Hnn
Volunteors, and tho latter told after
tho young Jow had gono that somo of
tho sessions which t,hey had had to

for his follows to this offect that ho
had given Christianity an honest and
a fair trial; that ho could agreo with

Christ wasMhe Son of God in body.
On Saturday ho had wired his family
in the East, "I havo fought and I havo

that that .young man had gono to
Kansas City, and they returned to
their Alma Mater with unstinted ad
miration and fellowship for him.
Tho atmosphoro about tho conven
tion was charged with tho spirit and

personal results aro certain to bo loft

thousands of delegates returned, and
through them later on in tho Chris
tlanization of tho world.
