And a real live dish pan luniks on a nail near the stove. Who would luivo thought wc had such things on our campus!

Some vveto seeking aniuseineniti, and when they could Hud none elevating, thevv would look for it in inuto questionable prac tices. And through other natural mi sons Chi 1st inn influences weie not leaving their stump on the ehm-.ioters of these poling men who form such an Import ii chins in human society. I't was this vor.v deflnitw need that called Into existence tlie Voung- Men's Uirihtiiiu association. Juit like every other great movement. It did not ap pear in the developed .orm. It has taken fifty .veins to evolve the organ ization, which we know torin.v as- the Voung Men's Phrlslinn association. ISIS a I.omlon clerk, (ieorgo Williams, began to gather around him a band of .voung men for prsi.ver and confer ence. Later the proprietors of the store in which he worked, g-.ive them a reading room over the store. They si.on learned to enjoy the ..mo spent there better tihtin in some more ques tionable plc.iMiic icsort. And yi"t tho dry goods clerk was all unconscious of the futiiie vvot.d wide movement lie was beginning. The meeting-. lieio led to similar ones elsewhoie. Soon rooms were found necessary vVhich con be kept open as places for men to g-nthcr wiien not nt work. These leqiiiicd some one to give his time to their oversight and the general secretary was. em ployed. Keuding rooms weie added anil later social giimcs. The utli.etie spirit of .voung tneii soon made a de mand for a gymnasium and the phys ical depart inont icsulted, with an em plo.veri ollicer, the physical director. Hv this time the oit.v aN-ociation had nssiuneri a dellnite form, and1 the movement had spreao throng-out Hngland and lmri its beginuiuigs in morion. It, ovtonslons hns pIikv ocen a iaiid one. It was meetiirg the needs which had culled i. into exist ence. Strong mm . tilioroug-h busi ness men were at its honri. I'erimi- nent buildings won1 b ng- erected in mil u j large cii.ca. I.tit now a new futuie enters which is to have a imirke efl'eei on its fu ture. The gieat inoroase in ooni ineroe had built up extensive lailioad systems.

Theie being- n existing- social oignnialion ilm't was reai h ing those men it appealed to the Voung Men's Christian association to attempt to meet their needs. ,A now department wji- opened. Skillful men weie placed in the railroad liehl to de velop tho work. Todny e Imiidreris of mill oud V. M. C.

During tho same ,voar scvorsil colleges applied to the Young 'Men's Christian association for local orgsin- iiitlons. Slowly at Hist, then mote rapidl.v this new Held developed and another department was orgnnled to the meet the needs of the .lieges. Though from a Hnaiicial sdiitripoiuit. the citj ami nulm.ul departincnts hnve MirptiHRcri It. ,et In oxtonsion the college department has lunl a inont ie niarkahlc growth. From it haw uprumg the .student volunteer movement for foreign missions, tihe college Voung Women's Christian association, the ItritMi Christian college union and the various other organiations which go to make up the studeiiitfi Ohristiian fed eration, which comprises the sUurienU of all lands. The next stop in the extension of the scope of tho V. M. ('. vvork was occaioned by our lcccint wur Avith Spain. During Hie oivll wfir the iiewl of some strong Christian orgaiiiatinn wns felt in the army. Hut when the demand became so urgent last spring the international committee org-aiuVed a new department la its alivndy wide ly ex-tended work. H w called the nrmy and navv Chris . i.nmnisslon. Tents were sent to all the ' ne e.unpi of our troops. 1 resident MeKlnliv and the ann and niiv oflloors heartily endorsed the movement. Some of our host evangelists engngcriri In the new work. Over I no competent , M. C. A. hoci claries weie cinplo.ved. The tents were furnished with tables Where the soldiers might wilte. The single Item of statlouei'.v supplies for .the camp soon vvciui above $1,000 per wvok. L'n tier the wise dliectlon of the sect eta rles the V. M. ('. A. tout soon became one of tho most popular things about the cuui-p. it was here that men came to write home, to hnve unlet talks, to rest nnd to lit tend Christian on loos. In times of imti.e 11111117, wounded men have been eaied for at the association ontt. At Santiag-o the tout was pitched awa.v out on the tir ing lino.
