Such is the extraordinary record of work and experience, in labor and lectual and spiritual awakenings. 1 shall now enumerate the things which Berea has so generously of fered me Firstly, Berea, with a motherly life, of this student and man of ac-i kindness, -unlocks her treasure vault, tion, who is now in Berea interpret- and says to me: "Now, my lad, take ing social conditions moral and all you want, but never forget to economic national and international j take the best!"

Raymond Robins told The exact truth about Russia. Not only did he describe events exactly as they happened in Russia, but he foretold the future with considerable accur acy. For two yean so-called intel ligent people ssid Robins was a Bol shevist, simply because he told the truth. He said the Bolshevist theory was economically unsound and mor ally a crime. 'But,' he said, 'the Soviet rules Russia today; it's the only thing which takes the place of the church and the Czar. The Soviet is going to rule Russia for some time to come. If anyone tries to persuade you that there is any power or force or belief in Russia at pres ent that is not based on the Soviet, don't believe him.' Did our State Department thank Robins for telling the truth T Our State Department tried to discredit Robins in every way simply because he told the truth. He bad an embarrassing habit of being right and of present ing a perfectly clean-cut policy based on truth and common senBe. His polity was to leave Russia alone to work out her own salavation. We are all beginning to wish that our Etate Department and the State De- partments of the Allies had taken Robins' advice." Berea is indeed fortunate in hav ing Raymond Robins here, and we shall aot ceae to be grateful for hit messages. Another Maxim. Many helpful thl, kKleed, Mea have Mid. If at ftrai you do succeed Krp I'lHl hjrad,. ress if you will call It such. My knowledge of things in general has been greatly enhanced thru the un tiring and devoted teachers under whom I have the privilege of study ing. They have taught me vital things of life which are greatly help, ful to my personal welfare. In short, they are the guiding stars of my future destiny, so to speak. Had it not been for their able leadership and guidance, I would be totally lost in expressing my thoughts in writ' ing this article in English. In conclusion, Berea means a lot to me. O, Alma Mater, how can I repay thee for the unthinkable debt that I owe thee? Thou art my "Al ma Mater." To thee be all honor and glory I Who is here so ungrate ful that be would not love Berea? Who is there so disloyal that he would not be her true son? Who is so narrow-minded that he would not sing praises to Berea T I am glad that I am greatly privileged to be a Berea student who believes in "plain living and high thinking."
