A significant movement among
some of the large Universities is the
establishment of mission work di
rectly under the care of the Univer
sity Associations. Yale has already
established in one of the inland
provinces of China, a Ya’e mission
supported and manned by Yale men.
The ultimate object is to provide for
the establishing of a college
which shall be Yale’s gift to the
young men of China. Harvard has
lately inaugurated a similar move
ment with President Roosevelt of
the class of 1880, as chairman of the
Advisory Committee. India will
be the field of Harvard’s work.
Soon after the opening of the
Russian war, the Japanese .Minis
ter of War gave permission to the
Association to work among the
soldiers in Manchuria. Secretary
C. V. Hibbard, Wisconsin 1900,
and two Japanese helpers set out at
once with tent, games, gospels, and
other books, hair clippers, soap,
medicines, correspondence materials
and a gramaphone. With this pre
paration, they have been doing a
very great deal to help the Japanese
soldiers and to win their regard for
Christianity. The correspondence
materials are highly appreciated.
The tables are always full of men
writing to relatives and friends at
home. Work of this practical
nature will do much to show the
Japanese the real spirit of Christi
anity.

And laugh at your spill,
But don’t in canoes
Without making your will.-
