Id was not without a good deal of hesitation and forethought that the association dwided to take Mie ad vance step of securing' a general sec retary to superintend Its work. The need for sonic one to devote his time, giving more Minn the president or any member could and also carry his reg ular school work, wo.s plainly evi dent. The pre! 1 nil nary plans of the cabln't were brought to some de gree of delinllencs-. at tlie visit of C. C. 'MiChciier hist. May. and a little later the association vo'ed unanimously to employ a genral secretary. .Tolin S. Moore was secured for this office. While the new feature is sti.l pretty much of an cvperlinent, yet there i not the slightest doubt existing Imt that. 'It has licen a most pronounepil success and money well expended. The grr.wt.li attained tliroui!'h the labors and faithful work of Mr. Moore has placed the as-oeiation among the most successful of any In tlhe leading colleges and universities in the laud.

In concluding tills report we feel it but justice to the association to state, that its work would undoiihtedly have been greater and further-reaching had It not ttulVered greatly the loss of some of its staiinclicst workers und truest friend, hy enlistment in the United States army.
