Ask the
Reasons Why Every Man In College
Should Be a Member of the
Y. M. C. A.
"Every man in College should be a
member of the Y. M. C. A.”
There are a good many reasons why
every man on the campus should be a
member of the Y. M. C. A., among
which the most pertinent are: First,
The Y. M. C. A. is a most valuable
aid to the Universtiy. Second, It is
the greatest student movement in the
world with which every college man
should be in touch. Third, The Y. M.
C. A. is the only organization that
cares for the spiritual side of a man’s
life. Fourth, A man will receive val
uable training in Christian work by
being a faithful member of the Y. M.
C. A. Fifth, A man’s Christian ex
perience will be broadened and deep
ened by contact with his fllows who
hold different religious views from
his own. Last but not least, it gives
a man one of the best opportunities to
help his fellows and helps him to be
come a leader.
The Y. M. C. A. is the only insti
tution on the campus that takes any
interest in a man’s spiritual well be
ing. It fills the place in our State
University that no secterian organi
zation could possibly fill because the
public would immediately stop an at
tempt by any sectarian body to do a
work similar in character to the work
the Association is doing on the cam
pus. The Association is the one reli
gious organization where you do not
have to distort your religious views
to agree with some creed or doctrine
to become a member. The Association
wants your membership for your own
good, as well as for the good of the
It may be of interest to the public
to know how the work of the member
ship committee is carried on and what
they have done. The old membership
was not carried over from last year,
but at the beginning or tnts scnool
year every man, whether a member
last year or not, was asked to fill out
a membership blank. There are now
ninety-four active and thirty-five asso
ciate members.

sessed an unusually pleasing straight
forward delivery. He briefly reviewed
the arguments of both sides and spent
a few minutes in rebuttal. He pointed
out that constitutional amendment is
to difficult and slow to meet the needs
of the people, and that the cases of
reactionary decisions cited by the
Affirmative were only typical exam
ples of hundreds of others. Jones’:
first main point was that these reac
tionary decisions were due to the ir
responsibility of the judges.
His second point was that the Re
call is the only and best instrument
for securing the desired results as ex
perience has shown.
Gardner followed for Utah and
proved to be one' of the most fluent
speakers of the evening. He was in
terrupted by slothful latecomers and
a passing train, but soon regained pos
session of the audience. He upheld
the decisions of the courts and said
they were, as a rule, good. He elab
orated on the ineffectiveness of the
Recall and argued that it possessed
certain inherent defects. He then pro
posed the plan of the negative, which
was to remove incompetent judges by
legislative redress.
Each speeker was then given six
minutes for rebuttal. They devoted
themselves to summaries and reitera
tion of the main points already men
tioned, but the closing speech of
Crockett is worthy of particular men
tion. In a clear, concise manner, he
summarized the issues which had
arisen, showed thetdjfcfects of the rem
edies proposed by the Negative and
closed with a strong appeal in favor
of the popular Recull. as proposed by
the Affirmative. ,
