The guests and students of the
University will be greeted by a veri

the feature of the descriptive scheme
that has been devised by the Fresh

boughs add a touch of the eternal
green to the barren walls, while the
floor expense has been broken with
the utilization of beautiful palms and
Papanese dwarf crab-apple trees.

PADDOCK TALKS TO
Experiences in Missionary Work Are
Related by Bishop of Eastern
Bishop Robert L. Paddock spoke to
200 young women of the University
in Villard Hall yesterday afternoon
on the subject, “What Is Life For and
What Can We Do With It.”
The Bishop spoke to the young
women about missionary work, both
at home and abroad and told of his
own experience with Eddy, a mission
ary, who finally persuaded him,
against his will, to go to India.
The Bishop divided missionary
fields into three parts: That closely at
home; that farther away in our own
country; and foreign missionaries.
He gave an interesting illustration of
home mission work out in Eastern
Oregon, by telling of an incident
which happened in a small town far
from a railroad. In speaking of the
men, he said, “There probably had
never been a preacher among those
men. They were sheep herders, cow
punchers, and miners, men of red
blood and high spirits, who had not
time to carry Bibles and pray. When
I went among them, I sat on the
counter of the little store and told
stories and when I told them I was a
preacher, they laughed and said they
didn’t believe it. And they really
meant to compliment me.” The bishop
smiled and concluded his story by
telling how he had persuaded the sa
loonkeepers to close their saloons and
attend his meeting.
After telling of his life among the
children of the slums of New York,
the bishop ended his speech by ap
pealing to young women to go into
missionary work. “For,” he said, “it
is only by helping God to help other
people that we can find our greatest
joy and contentment.”
Self Government, which has been
the ambition of the students at the
University of Iowa for several years,
was endorsed recently by the Dean of
the College of Liberal Arts, and by
the president of the university.
