The all absorbing topic in Mehar
ry and on the Campus this week Is
not Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy
or Nurse-training. It is volunteer
service to the U. S. of America. Much
of last week was consumed by the
president in an effort to reach a plan
MRS. R. H. BOYD,
Who is deeply interested ln th
Booker Washington Tourist Club.
by which the entire school should
volunteer service and be assigned to
the Medical Reserve Corps. The
local recruiting Board was beseiged,
the officials of the Medical Reserve
Corps were chased, telephones were
kevt busy and telegrams sent to
Washington, D. C. in an effort to.
arrange for the student body to vol
unteer and not be subject to draft.
The happy moment came when the
authorities informed the president on
Saturday that all of his requests had
been granted and that a competent
force of Uncle Sam's men would In
vade the Meharry Campus Monday
morning and proceed to examine all
who would present themselves. The
well equipped Physiological Labora
tory early Monday morning was a
veritable recruiting station with
Capt. Fern and his assistants in
charge, Drs. Ford and Taylor of the
faculty and the Daniels of the senior
class with others who volunteered
rendered excellent service.
The work went smoothly on-from
early morn to late evening and when
the count was finally taken, 170 brave
vigorous, strong, stalwart Meharry"
men had made the test and placed
themselves on the altar of their
country. On Tuesday morning this
work was again renewed and as you
quietly scan these lines the flower of
southern Negro manhood as repre
sented by Meharry College belongs t
the IJ. S. Army.
This is as it should he. It has ever
been thus and God grant that the
bright pages of history so hrilliantry
illuminated by the heroic deeds of
our fathers may yet shine forth witb-
more resplendent brightness if pos
isiblo, by the illustrious deeds of their

CHRISTMAS AT MKHARRY.
A splendid example has been set
by our honored president and fol
lowed by the president and members
of the Y. M. C. A. in that instead of
sending the usual Xmas presents to
relatives and friends this year the
money thus usually invested will be
used to relieve some of the cold feet
and destitute and hungry neighborsin
our immediate section of the city.
An effort will be made to locate and;
relieve all who find themselves In
need. It is hoped that the members .
of the faculty and student body will
gladly enter into this worthy spirit
and thereby bring cheer and gladness
to many hearts.
