it was the first or the kind ever held and
will doubtless be repeated in coming
vears In view of the response made by
those for whom It was particularly de
signed Bishop Lawrence sent Invita

women engaged in some form of social
service rhej included settlement and
charity workers, members of btato com
missions relating to social weirare. keep
ers of co-operative boarding-houses and
others connected dlrectlv or indirectly
with the betterment or the masses. Thej
responded to the number of perhaps live
hundred, and from 10.30 In the morning
till late in the afternoon the church was
well filled, the services being divided Into
nine periods and such topics as "True
Values. ' Silent Forces." and "Reserve
Power" being successively considered
Instrumental music and seasons or
meditation added to the Impresslvcness
of the occasion. At 1 o'clock the Cathe
oral Chapter invited all present to take
luncheon with the clergy ana rs persons
availed themselves of this opportunity.
One familiar with gatherings or social
workers of Greater Boston declared that
it was the most representative assembly
of the kind ever convened. Certain or
ganizations, such as the Monday Kven

men and women engaged in rerorm wont,
were there almost to the last member. It

The earliest Princeton endowment was

u great company of alumni to appeal to
and hosts of other friends In America.
At the 11 o'clock rooming; service in
the Church of the Covenant. Rev. Dr.
Charles Wood will preach. The double
sextet will furnish the music for the

"The pressure on the church for 'dajs"
to be celebrated In the Interest of re
ligious and moral concerns threatens to
burst the calendar," says the Continent,
"and presses hard, too, on the patience of
pastors and church officers who fre
quently, for local reasons, want to do
something very decidedly different on the
day when a big board or society is
pounding at the door and demanding
right of way. In contrast with all this,
the Board of Education In Philadelphia,
lias hit ud on a happy expedient that wilt
undoubtedly get entrance for its Idea
In a good many places where more dicta
torial applicants are shut out.
"The Board of Education wants n 'day,"
too, but Its modest petition does not
stipulate any time to which the local
church must conform. 'Have it any time
sou please,' sas the courteous Board
of Education; 'only please do have it.
And this gentle generosity will no doubt
persuade most of the congregation In
the board's constituency, for the Idea
Is an excellent and appealing one 'Voca
tion Day' Is what Secretary Cochran and
his colleagues propose, and their thought
of using a whole Sunday to put up to
the young people of a congregation the
solemnity of choosing a life work In the
fear of God has an urge about It to
which certainly thoughtful Christian lead
ers cannot fall to respond
"Of course the Board of Education ex
pects more young ministers to be pro
duced from an observance of this kind,
but that after all Is only secondary, as
the board Itself knows, to the much
larger effect of .making all young people

All items of influence taken together,

the most successful church assemblages
