The Christian religion, he said, pro

Saviour put religion back on its' old
ut true foundation iby declaring that
he first commandment consisted in

Address to Students.
The aiiress to the student body
delivered Sunday night by the
Rev. V. A. Snyder. of Wilmington.
Mr. Snyder chose as his text, "But I
am among you as he that serveth."
His theme was service-service to
'thers. Service, he said, demanded
th'e best that we could give, and ser
vice demanded self-sacrifice. He
: ,f success, saying the successes
n life were not those which come
easy, but rather those for which we
are willing to give up much. The real
ly successful men and women are
those who have learned to say with
Paul, "I give my body a living sac
rifice." Such a life of service was th'e
only life of happiness. Happiness
could not be attained in receiving, but
in giving. To serve was the highest
office of the angels themselves, and it
was the noblest, happiest, truest ideal
of man. Well had it been said of
God, quem nosse vivere, cui servire
regnare est, God whom to know is
life, and whom to serve is being. We
shall never find the happiness of
kingship, of greatness, of living, un
less we learn how to give our lives in
service to God for Christ's sake.
