It U a matter of common knowledge
that the ranks of the ministry tare ser
iously depleted and that fewer ajid- fewer
young men are adopting the ministry as
a profession. The demands of the church
are for training minds.
A great cry for educated ministers is
going up from our churches. Hitherto
the church schools have been looked
upon as the only possible source of pul
pit supply. That the university is a
source of ministerial supply, is the opin
ion of tiie more broad minded religious
orkers today. The Kev. John D. Ran
dolph or the Broadway Methodist
I Church, has an article in the "St. Louis
Christian Advocate" hich sets forth
some facts On this subject worthy of
consideration. He says:
"A greatfSculty at Columbia is tbe
hopelessly restricted physical facilities of
our Broadway church. A Sunday School
capacity of at least fifteen hundred is
needed, but it is impossible even to care
properly for five hundred. A class of
university women has been meeting in a
makeshift room without either comfort
able lighting or ventilating accommoda
tions. A class of university men has
been assembling where their work is con
stantly interrupted by the coming and go
ing of the Sunday School scholars from
other classes. Two passes of young
women from Christian College and
Stephens College hate been all year
without separate class rooms. During
the school terms, hundreds are turning
away from our preaching services for
lack of room.
NEW BU1LDINCS" NEEDEp
"The Catholic Church with sistyfive
students at Missouri University has in
vested J 150,000.00 in a building. The
Baptists, Disciples and Presbvterian
churches in Columbia will in tbe future
build churches which will properly rep
resent their 'denominations and care for
the students of their faith. A way must
be found to properly care for Methodist
students at Columbia if a valuable source
of ministerial supply is not to he neglect
ed and a field white unto the harvest left
in a large measure unrept.
"The hundreds of young men from
Methodtbt homes who enroll every year
in Missouri University are a possible
source of ministerial supply which our
church cannot afford to neglect. The
fact that they are students in a state
school does not prove that their minds
are necessarily closed to the Divine call
to the ministry. Many of them are grad
uates of our own church institutions and
are taking work at the University which
could not be obtained at our colleges.
Neither ran it be said with truth that
courses of study given in state institu
tions are too rationalistic to make pos
sible the development of deep and pow
erful religious sentiments. Whatever
tomorrow. Likewise will those trained, J!
in" other pursuits develop, should not
the church challenge them all to a scien
tific study and an earnest, sustained cf-
fort at solution of the social and rclig-

recent social developments have made
dear the impossibility of real social pro
gress cacept upon toe foundation, of per
sonal religion. Reverent scholarship is
not now tbe monopoly of institutions
which the church has endowed.
"The key to the door which wffl open to
the church the storehouse of ministerial
supply potential in our sute institutions
of learning. Is our churches located in-j
such educational centers. Two things
are necessary for our churches to'proper
ly function in the direction indicated.
Their spiritual life must b deep and
true and their physical facilities must be
adequate to meet the needs of the
students who come under their care. If
these conditions are met, by every sign
and promise of the gospeL onr churches
will be used of Cod in cringing young
men into the ranks of the ministry,''
E. IL NEWCOMB WRITES ALSO
An article written by E. H. Neweomb,
student secretary to the Commission from
Three Missouri Conferences, in Charge
of Religious Work in the Sute Univer
sity, is printed In the same issue of the
"Advocate". Mr. Neweomb writes:,
The church ia the regeneration and
vitalizing force in the world. When
there were no public institutions to care
for the orphan and dependent and de
fective classes the church provided or
phanages, and asylums, and hqspiuls.
The church rejoices when tbe sute takes
over these institutions, for thus) is it
freed to do its own particular work in
society. In the same way tbe sute is
providing for education. It is not lonr
since all education would have died, out I
had it not been for the fostering care of
the churches. Every school and college f
in America is a monument to the power
and influence of religion. But tbe pub
lic schools have been denied the privilege
of giving formal religious education.
The church must not shirk her resultant
responsibility lest she would invite eer'l
tain and inevitable moral disaster.
Univrriity a Recruiting Croani 1
"While the Methodist 'Church has pre- j
viously secured a high percentage of its!
leaders from the church schools, and no '
doubt will continue to do so, nevertbe-'
less, tbe sute university is one of the '
most promising recruiting grounds for!
future leadership. Yearly the fcigh
schools are sending throngs of young
people to this institution. Lay leaders
are to be found in large numbers among
the physicians, the engineers, lawyers)
architects, farmers, journalists ,andi
teachers in progress of training. From
the young men and women equipping;
themselves for scientific farming austj
come the solution of rural life problaos. ,
These young people will live onjlthe'
farms and by force of intellectual ability '
will become tbe community leaders of,
Should not they be given vision and dy
namic that on returning to tbe farm, or
entering their profession, they may lay
IwiM M the church orcanization of the
community and through the training and
inspiration gained during college las
contribute to making tlie church the cen.
ter of social, intellectual and religious
culture in the neighborhood? If the
church measures up to her to'V in I be
midst of our student populations the '
problem of Christian leadership will lie
olved ind Christianity will increasingly '
control all our common life. In thr
words of ex President Bryan of the Un-1
iversity of Indiana, we reiterate: Today
the greatest missionary field in the world,
and the field which is almost unoccupied ,
by the churches, is the field which is of-'
fered in the great American state univer- j
