Columbia Conference Gives
$400 Matter to Come Be
fore Meeting Here.
Plans for the work of the Colum
hia Methodist Church among the
I'niveisity students will be taken up
at the confeience to be held heie
Thursday afternoon. Two represen
tatives from the mission boards of
each of the three Methodist confer
ences of Missouii will be at the meet'
The conference which includes Co
lumbia has already given $400 for
the support of an assistant pastor for
the Methodist Church here to have
charge of the work among the Uni
versity students. If the other two
conferences give $400 each a legular
pastor will be sent here who will be
pastor to the students only.
"We do not know jet what the
other conferences will do in this
matter," the Rev. C. M. Aker said
this morning. "They may decide to
support a student pastor for Colum
bia. If they do, some plans in re
gard to the chinch here will have
to be made. If they decide to sup
port a legular student pastor, the
piesent church building will have to
be enlaiged or another one built. The
building as it is now would not be
laige enough for the regular work
and that for the students also.
"Our plans are in the air so far.
But we are ceitain that they shall
have to be accepted by the mission
boaids of the thiee conferences be
foie they are put into effect. Appli
cations have been received for the
new position heie. One is from South

"The history of man is really the
history of these two subjects," said
Dr. Black. "First of all man found
he must hustle to make a living.
Then he began to think and to study
as to why it was worth while living
at all. In the answers given by the
different peoples to the question of
the purpose of man's existence, we
have reason for the saying that, 'Man
is incurably religious.'
"While we are living in an age of

the extremely voiithful and inexper

tions, such as marriage. We demand
of each one 'why are you here?'
Nothing is taken for granted till its
validity has been tested.
"Because the findings of aiche-
ology, of geology, of biology and
of astronomy have changed the
meaning of the traditional theology
for us, they have not changed the
fundamental facts of the older be

vvaid them that has been changed.
"Another cause Of the spirit of
change in the modern world is the
realization of the leal meaning of
democracy. We aie learning that
'above the nation, humanity is, and
as joung people it is your duty to
get in touch with this new social
spirit as soon as possible. Modern

and more the practical and social
