The Young Men’s Christian Associa

Make Student-Life Worth While—
College Circus One cf the Coming
Morgantown, W. Va.—The largest
crowd of the season gathered in Re
cital hall, at West Virginia University,
to hear I)r. Hodges diBcuss “ A Col
lege Education and a Young Man’s
Religious Faith.” This was a strong,
Btraight-to-the-point talk which was
enjoyed by all who heard it. Dr.
Hodges said, in part:
"There are many young people who
would be here except that their par
ents think that the Influence at the
State University would undermine
their religioi.B faith. There is an idea
abroad that many of the professors
are antagonistic to Christianity, but
this is a mistaken idea. When I was
a boy In college a wave of skepticism
swept over the college world. Dar
winism wan at its height. People were
saying, if Darwin’s theory is true, It
will destroy religion. Even religious
people made the mistake of thinking
that Darwin’s theory was necessarily
one of faithlessness. One day some
body awakened to the fact that there
really was no conflict between science
.and religion. What difference does it
make how God created the world or
how long it took Him? The great fact
Is. ‘In the beginning, God!’ No man
has been able to go back of this. Wo
are learning, more than ever today,
that seentific facts are in harmony
with religious faith. It is my firm be- '
lief that there is nothing in a college
education to-day to destroy a young
man’s faith, but there is much in col
lege life to set such faith on a sure
foundation. Paul told the Greeks that I
they were ‘too religious,’ that is, they
were too much inclined to run after
every new thing. That is not the ten
dency to-day. The tendency is more
and more towards a firm belief in God. ;
How many infidels, atheists, or agnos
tics do you know? Among all the col
lege men I have known as classmates
and students 1 have only known one
who really said that he did not be
“The greatest advance in education
the last number of years has been in
science. Those of you who have
studied physics know that energy is
always the same; none of it is ever
wasted. Who started this energy? !
Who set the universe in motion? No j
man can think of the millions of stars |
moving at terrific speed through space,
without conflict or accident, without
thinking of God. The science student,
of all students, should be the most
devout, for all science points him to
“We must distinguish between a
mere belief in things and a faith that
works I expect to go away on the
train to-night. Now, I may believe that
the train is able to carry me where I
want to go, but if my faith does not
cause me to get on it I will not reach
my destination. Now, people may stop
me on my way to the train and talk
to me, causing me to miss my tra(n. i
There are some things which tend to
keep a college strudent Trom working
bis faith—society, athletics, college
politics and the like Even his devotion
to his studies may interfere. Hut there
is no more danger of this in college
than out of college.
Jesus ( hrist has the brains of the
world working for Hint today. Visit
the meetings of the great religious
bodies and note the kind of men who
are at. the head. The study of Hod's
works never led anyone away from
Him. The poets and seers got their
Inspiration from a study of Hod's
works. To day we can look, not only
nt the great things which God has 1
made, but with the microscope we
can study the minute things, but
whether great or small, they si] point
us to Hod, the place where the intel
lect must finally r st is ‘In the begin
ning, God.’ As Whittier says:
'“I know not were 'hine islands lift
Their fronded palms in air;
I only know I can not drift
I'eytfnd Thy love and care.’”
The Student Hand-Hook, published
by the Y, M. (’. A.. <rt West Virginia
University, has made its appearance,
and fills a need long felt in the stu
dent. body. It is a mat little book, of
vest pocket size, bound in a neat leath
er. in the University colors It con
tains almost a hundred pages, consist
ing of general Information about the
University, the rules, customs, organi
zatons, athletics, yells and songs, and
other Items of Interest to the students
generally. It also contains the stu
dent directory, In a much more de
niable form than It has hitherto been
publlahed, F C. Smith, ’15, is man

nominal sum of fifteen cents.
Something novel is promised by the
Young Men's Uhrintlsn Association, of
West Virginia University, as an at- j
traction for the college world. They
promise a circus, to take place shortly
K* fore the Christmas rece«s, with
many splendid features, novelty arts, j
ipectacular performances, acrobatic j
antics, peanuts and red lemonade; in
fact, everything that makes Circus
Day so dear to every schoolboy, and
all other boys of everv age. That
there is ro much local talent within
the bounds of the University, running
in such lines of genius, m y emue j.s

The new cadets of the West Virginia
Corps of Cadets at the University are
rapidly taking on the appearance of
young soldiers. The fair weather has
given opportunity for outside drill
nearly every day and the cadet offi
cer* ami noncon :m ssioned officers are
doing their best to train the new men
so that they may be placed in the com
panies. The new uniforms have ar
rived and the new cadets seem to be
glad not to be conspicious by being in
civilian clothing during the drill hour.
About one hundred and thirty cadets
have expressed a desire to continue
the informal cadet hops this year.
These dances are given and paid for
by the cadets and are held in the Ar
mory. The first hop will be held No
The subject of the Military Ball has
been discussed In the corps and it has
been practically decided to have it on
February 3d. The ball is an event
which is looked forward to with pleas
ure by a great many students and
alumni throughout the state. It has
been conducted for the past five or six
years in such a way that it can give no
offense even to people who are not in
favor of dancing. It furnishes an op
portunity for students, alumni and
friends of the institution to enjoy a
social evening together which would
not be obtained in any other way and
It therefore seems advisable to con
tinue this event..
The cadet band has given two or
three outdoor concerts during the drill
hours which have been greatly en

The College Women’s Banquet.
The College Women's Banquet gffren
by the young women of tb • West Vir
ginia University on the evening of
November 2d called fo. th much real
enthusiasm among the women stu
dents. Numerous college pennants
and banners among the profusion of
autumn leaves and chrysanthemums
made the armory a must charming
place for the banquet and added much
to the coliege spirit of the occasion.
The banquet, for which one hundred
and eighty-six plates were laid, was
prepared by the young women them
selves, and was admirably served by
twelve young men of the University.
The delightnil music furnished by the
cadet band ceased when the toastmis
tress. Miss Rachel Col wall, arose and
proposed a toast to the young women
who had made the banquet possible.'
number of witty responses were
made to toasts. Among the speakers
were President Hodges, Dean Susan
Maxwell Moore, Miss Mabel Eleanor
Stone, and Miss Mary Rutherford.
After the banquet was concluded
many spirited college songs were
sung; the women students became bet
ter acquainted with one another, and
met socially the women of the faculty,
wives of faculty members, the minis
ters wives, and other college women
of Morgantown, as well as quite a few
of the alumnae who returned to spend
the week-end at their Alma Mater.
Among the out-of-town guests were
Miss Mabel Eleanor Stone of Cincin

Young Women's Christian Association,
and Miss Mary Rutherford, General
Secretary of the Young Women's
Christian Association, Bombay, India.

**! had bee:: troubled, z little, for nearly 7 years,” writes
Mrs. L. Fincher, in a letter from Peavy, Ala., “but I was
not taken down, until March, when I went to bed and had
to have a doctor. He did all lie could for me, but I got no
better. 1 hurt all over, and I could not rest At last, 1 tried
Cardui, and soon 1 began to improve. Now I am in very
good health, and able to do all my housework.”
l Woman’s Tonic
You may wonder why Cardui is so successful, after
other remedies have failed. The answer is that Cardui is
successful, because it is composed of scientific ingredients,
that act curatively on the womanly system. It is a medicine
for women, and for women only. It builds, strengthens, and
restores weak and ailing women, to health and happiness.
If you suffer like Mrs. Fincher did, take Cardui. It
will surely do for you, what it did for her. At all druggists.
