Thursday, October 11th, was the day set
aside by tho Int. Com. of the Y. W. 0. A.

was observed by the University association

meeting services of tho different churches.
Tho "Volunteer Mission Band" of tho
University was so fortunate as to secure
Eobert E. Speer of New York city, for tho
Sunday afternoon meeting in the chapel.
"The Claims of tho Mission Field" was tho
subject of Mr. Speer' s address which was
thoroughly enjoyod by the 350 or more
present. Miss Bessie Turner sang a solo
before the address. F. F. Tucker, '94, pre
sided at the meeting.
Tho Y. M. 0. A., in accordance with tho
custom of the University's homeless organ
izations, has hitherto resorted to the chapel
for its regular meetings, and the prospects
are that it will continue to do so for some
time. But it has profited by the new Con
servatory building in securing there a de
sirable room in which to hold various meet
ings which have been necessarily somewhat
nomadic as to place of meeting. The room
is open to the members and friends of the
association and every effort will be made to
make it attractive and of much practical use.
