President Harding Senda Greeting
Notire brlow greetings from Presi
dent Hardin to our National Red
Cross Convention. At president of
thia organization he la looking to it
to render efficient service and give re
lief in the appalling aituation that baa
arisen in the Near East. Red Cross
forces are already at this gigantic
task. Literally millions of dollars are
required to save hundreds of thou
sands from quirk starvation ant
Our great National Red Cross must
not fail to perform the tasks commit
ted to it and looked to as our repre
sentative, but its success depends on
the local chapters of which it is mad
up. Let us remember this and do
our part now and all during the Roll
The Annual Roll-Call begins this
year as usual Nov. 11th, Armistice
day, and extends thru Thanksgiving.
May we face cur tasks and be loyal.
In our own land last year we had '72
disasters of such dimensions that our
National Red Cross was called on for
relief to the amount of $1,441,486. We
must be prepared for disasters for
another year and combine with that
this over-seas work and you can read-1
ily see our tasks are larger than sines '
we were inthe midst of the World war.

My Dear Judge Payne:
The circumstances are such that
I will not be able to attend the open
ing session of the annual convention
of the American ' Red Cross begin
ning in Washington this morning. I
wish you would express my very cor
dial greetings and satisfaction that
I feel in knowing of this annual ses
sion of the delegates from the var1
ous chapters which give to the Amer
ican Red Cross its unfailing strength
and readiness for every emergency..
It has been most gratifying to,
learn that your Executive Committee'
thia morning haa appropriated funds
and has taken steps to render effic
ient relief in the great and appeal
ing emergency which haa arisen in
the Near EaxU The readiness of
your organization to meet this most
distressing aituation adds to ourj
gratification in being able to turn to
a great organization prepared for
any task. The consciousness of this
capacity to do things must contribute
to the enthusiastic spirit which lm
buea the American Red Cross thru
out every unit, and the knowl
edge adda to the pride and confidence
of the people of the United States
in having such agency to give expres
sion to human syjapathy and helpful
ness. Very truly yours,
(Signed) Warren 6. Harding.

Under proper control athletics have
a very important part to play in the

The ability to summon all of on's

by some of the men in the footbai

provides religious exercises and education. Tobacco, liquor and the carrying of
weapons are strictly forbiddea All students do some manual labor, for which
they receive credit on their school bills.
Students are not invited who do not believe in Berem's principles.
The Foundation boys have organi
zed two or three teams In soccer foot
ball, and they have played several
fast games since the football season
started. There are two teams within
the school that are especially well or
ganisedone is known as the "Grey
hounds," with Joe Keena as captain,
and the other team goes by the name
of "Bear Cats," with Arthur Kellar
as captain. The Greyhounds, by their
speed, got the best of the Bear Cats
in a recent game that was very close

was 3 to 1 in favor of the Grey

By Order of Prudential Committee, Berea College
From Colonel Charles ft. Forbes,
Director U. 8. Veterans'
We ex-service men think of tho
American Red Cross as an all-helpful
mother and the Veterans' Bureau
sees in that mother an always coop
erating friend. Whether it be a mat
ter of calling the Bureau's attention
to an unawarded claim, or an ill man
needing hospitalization, or of tiding
the sick veteran over the time which
must elapse before government aid
can be offeted, the Red Cross Is si
ways on the job with expert service
and the necessary goods.
In the Bureau's "Clean-up" cam
paign when an effort was made to
locate every ex-service man, no mat
ter how remote his habitation, or
how limited his powers of compre
hension, the Red Cross worker
brought to light hundreds of claims
which might otherwise have lain hid
den until too late for the individual
to make legal application. Taking
good advantage of what some one
has aptly termed her "strategic posi
tion" the Red Cross worker has pene
trated the alleys of the city and the
wilderness of the mountain in her
K-arrh for the man who did not know
that the government stood ready to
help him.
The Veterans' Bureau's problem is
a big one and we need the Red Cross.
Together, and with the help of all
the other agencies and individuals
eager to serve, we will surely give
most practical expression of Ameri
ca's appreciation of the debt which
the nation owes the man or woman
who gave health and strength in his
country's cause.
We sometimes hear an individual
talk of his living in a progressive
age. Such a time is very evident In
Berea, as we have moved up thirty
minutes on Sunday evenings. Those
who came to the Y. M. C. A. meet
ing last Sunday at the old time were
late, becaure we meet now at 5:45
instead of 6:15. It is not very com
plimentary to bo thot of as "a back
number," so we are endeavoring to
keep pace with the times and be
classified in the progressive group;

We. had Mr. Carter B. Robinson,
an old Berea College graduate, who
spent right years on tho campus here
with us last Sunday evening. Ho haa
been out from hia Alma Mater eight
years putting into practice mm of
the knowledge and experience which
he recieved while a student. He is
a business man located In Detroit,
Michigan, and from all indications
he ia making good. It waa self evi
dent from the good attendance that
those who are in tho foM today are
interested to know how ma old Berea
man ia progressing after leaving
school and also to get some first
hand pointers.
Mr. Robinson took for hia subject,
"Ten Years From Now, Whatt" Ho
stated that it was determined by
what we do today and each succeed
ing day. Every young man in Berea
College knd Allied Schools is opti
mistic enough to expect a rather suc
cessful career, otherwise he would not
be here. Success, we, were told. Is a
growth or process which leads to a
There are three things which are
necessary for us in order to b suc
cessful. Tho first on probably is
work. It calls for lota of perspira
tion along with some Inspiration.
Work must be planned systematically
in order to produce tbe greatest
amount of results. Tho second thing
is study. The time to create desire
for studying is while wo are la school.
If we do not learn to like to study
now, we must learn to do It when we
get out into tho world. W should
study good literature, raagaslaos, and
also self. Find out the weak points
of the latter and how to overcom
them. Lrarn to rue common sens
snd to have a reasonable aasoont of
determination. The third thing b to
have the proper kind f Ideals and
let them dominate oar Uvea. Along
with the three things taniloaed we
should not forget that In order to bo
successful we must learn to be a good
mixer among those with whom we
meet each day.
Elmer Deatherage, ahoriff of Madi
son county, will be at th Berea Na
tional Bank on Friday from t a. in
to 3 p. m. to accommodate thoe ia
this vicinity who wish to pay their
