Aeeordl o Report at In
ROCHESTER, N. Y.. Deo. SO. The report
of the executive committee of the Student
Volunteer Movement of Foreign Missions,
at present In session In this city, sets forth
that the primary and permanent function
of tha movement Is that of a recruiting
agency seeking to enroll a sufficient num
ber of well-qualified volunteers to meet
the requirements of the mission boards of
The best evidence of the efficiency and
power of the Student Volunteer Movement
Is the number of sailed volunteers. At the
Toronto convention In 190J it was reported
that 780 volunteers had sailed during the
preceding four years. In the quadrennlutn
following the Toronto convention and end
ing with the Nashville convention In 190
1,000 volunteers sailed. During the four
years which have since elapsed, ending
with the Rochester convention. 1,283 volun
teers have sailed, or nearly 800 more than
for the quadrennium ending with the Nash
ville convention. The total number of
volunteers who have sailed since the be
ginning of the movement In 1886 Is 4.JM6.
Students Mora Liberal Givers.
Another test of the rising tide "Ef prac
tical missionary Interest among students
Is the Increase in their missionary giving.
At Nashville It was reported that the stu
dents of North America were contributing
ISO.000 a year to missionary objects. They
are now giving $127,000 a year toward such
objects, or an Increase In four years of
nearly 60 per cent. There are literally
scores of colleges and schools each sup
porting entirely or In large part Its own
representative on the foreign field. The
students of Yale head the list at present
with their contribution last year of fully
210.000 ' to missionary objects. Among
women's colleges the students of Vassal
made the largest contribution, having given
last year 33,386.
The last four years havs been a record
breaking period In the promotion of mis
sion study among students. In the year
preoedlng the Nashville convention there
were 1,049 mission study classes In institu
tions of higher learning in tha United
States and Canada. Last year there were
2,084. In the year before the Nashville con
vention the total number engaged In mis
sion study was 12,629. During the last year
it was 25,208. The number has doubled in
Volunteers for Mission Fields.
"The most Important concern of the
Volunteer Movement and Its friends,"
says the report, "la to augment greatly,
probably to double, the number of well
equipped volunteers whd can in the Im
mediate or near future press out to the
mission fields. Today throughout the
entire Far East, In all the principal parts
of the Near Hast, such as Turkey and
Russia) in Southern Asia, In the East
Indies, throughout the larger part of the
African continent, and even in parts of
Latin America, the Christian Church
faces nothing less than an acute and
momentous crisis. This crisis can be
met only by the sending out of a larger
number than are now , forthcoming of
thoroughly capable and well furnished
missionaries. JOn the home side ,we are
subject to the growing' 'pressure of the
expanding ability of the church to send

H. Abbott to return A. G. Pollock, the
Omaha Indian superintendent, temporarily
until the situation on the Omaha reserva

considerably more here.
Whun seen in regard to this latest move
ment, Dr. Susan LaFlesche Plccotte, on
behalf of the Indians, made the following
"The Omaha Indians have had insult
added to injury and naturally feel more
resentful than ever over the receipt of
the latest special from Washington. They
connot see wherein the Indian office has
acceded to their demands for a separate
superintendent and the retention of A. G.
Pollock. The Indian department should
be beyond the dignity of a ruse and plainly
shows It docs not understand the Intel
lectual status of the Omahas. Such an
affront only increases the determination
to cut loose from all departmental restrictions."
