was read by Rev. J. W. Carson

Tbe hymns sung were "AH^Hail the
Power of Jesus' Name." "Iii the Gross
of Christ I Glory" and "A Charge to

part in the singing. The clfcoir
sang beautifully. the opening anthem,
"'Just As I Am" (Pilgrims Chorus), by

duet, ''The Lord is My Light."
The baccalaureate sermon was dej^Hivered
to the graduates by Dr. George

The great battle of life consists
in conquering self. H':e evil in us,
the selfishness, the avarice the envoy,
the sinful passions and desires. It
consists in taking up the cross in
discipleship with Christ. In losing
the natural life, that is, the life of
self-gratification, shall we find the
true, spiritual life, the life of unsel
fisf'r.ness and service.
"Heaven does wita us as men wltfc
Not light them for themselves."
For we live in a world of sin and
injustice. It is required of him that
hath the light to let it shine. Ser

of a successful life. Suclh was the
service which Christ rendered. He
gave his life, and in giving it, He
found it for 'us. -We, too, shall find
the real life in- service.
We live in stormy times: but in
times of great opportunity. If ever
men were called to unselfish service,
the time is now. The great war has
demonstrated that neitJber philosophy
nor I fuman wisdom and precaution
can save the world. Sin is in the
world, and men are not good by nature.

under the guise of education, refinement

"The Lord is My Strength," by Bruno
Let us go back this evening to the
original Christian association organized
by Jesus Christ witih picked men.
That group^must always be the stand!
ard and ideal for every Y. ?M. C. A. The
personality, power and success of
those men is revealed to us in

with, the Holy Gfcost. " (Acts 2:4).
This text recalls the wonderful story
of Pentecost wfcich we vvill keept in
mind this evening. Looking at tl e
apostle before and after this experience
we observe that a Christian is a
person who lives in the same world,
lives practically the same life as other
men but tJ':e spirit in which he lives
and moves and has his being is dif|
Before the apostles were filled wit s
the Holy Spirit they were emptied of
themselves, the spirit of the world, of
Judaism. What a task on the Savior
in this preparatory process to be with
these men, so petty, so dull of under;
standing, so narrow and bigoted. Truly,
His divinity is revealed by their
patient torbearance won by His miracles.
The same condition obtains to 3~
