At the Student Volunteer Conference held at North-fiel- d
in January of last year, representatives from the institutions of higher learning in all parts of the United
States and Canada faced the changed world situation.
They saw that it was a world of intensified need and
heightened opportunity that spread out before them and
they concluded that in an extraordinary time they should
attempt an extraordinary thing. They decided that they
would call on their fellow students, who had the opportunities of college education to help in the founding of
world democracy. With enthusiasm they carried back to
their institutions a large and a challenging program, Included in that program was the undertaking to raise at
least half a million dollars during the academic year of
1918 and 1919 for education and relief of the entire world.
These are not the days in which to make easy demands
of serious minded people, provided the cause contributes
to the making of a new and better world.
In that part of our duty which has laid in warring
against the forces of oppression, each of us claimed his
share. To many of our students at Kentucky the opportunity was given of going overseas. Many of the others
trained and were willing to go when the call came. All
claimed the privilege of serving in our common, cause for
tne weiiare oi tne worm, some oi us aia our on m one
way and some in another. When we were asked to give
our share for the United War Work we did it with a ven- gence and oversubscribed 121 per cent. We now consider
that the war is over and some of us teel that we have d
our tasks, but the war is not over. The vices which
brought about the war are still with us and must be fought
and conquered and died for as their concrete iorms were
fought and conquered and died for.
We have a new world and a new opportunity to kill
the enemies of mankind so that in the future the world
may be safe to live in and for our children to live in. We
must say gratefully, "thank God, the war is over," but we
must also say with Mr. J. Lovell Murray, "thank God we
can now go ahead."
The immediate task of bayonet and shrapnel is over,
but the fight is still on. Shall we, as a University unit, do
our bit in this campaign to make the world safe? Shall
we respond as we always have when the call has come or
shall we be slackers in this great fight to lay the foundation for permanent peace? This money is to go into Armenia for relief; into South America and into India for
the happiness of boys and girls of our own age who should
be given opportunities that we are enjoying. Shall our students share their privilege with the needier students of
the world? If we measure up to our possibilities, educational America will do a handsome thing for her sisters
across the seas.

On Her Mind.
The Strollers entertained last Friday
afternoon in the Journalism rooms in
honor of the new members of the society. After an informal reception and
pledging of young Strollers with the
colors of the organization, lavender
and gold, a short program was given.
Two old Strollers, Emery Frazier and
Gus. Oay, read selections that easily
proved their talent.
Prof. Mabie, who was made an honorary member described the '19 play,
"Under Cover," and prophesied its
success with the fine material of the
society under profeslsonal coaching.
Mr. Creech ended the program with a
short speech of appreciation of Prof.
Enoch Orehan's service in past years.
Refreshments, sandwiches and coffee
were served, Miss Margaret M'Laugh-li- n
and Mr. Qrehan, as honorary Strollers, were guests of the afternoon.
The new members of the society who
were recently selected are: Auryne E.
