| t ^ le officers had not been as energetic and persistent as was desirable,
I but, it also admitted that its supposed-to - be constituency was gener
is ally dis-interested and unreliable.
I . With referrence to the causes of these very pressing ills, the fol-
[ lowing conclusions were reached: (1) that the output of active
and interested members was greater than the income; (2) that adop
tion of the six-day-school week together with the strict requirements
of chapel attendance naturally created in the average student a de
sire of being free as much as possible; and, (3) that the usual pro
grams of the society were lacking much in the way of interest.
Nearly everyone believed the most effective means of increasing
interest to be through the paths of thorough preparation. Conse
quently, it was agreed that firm and extensive preparations would be
made for the two debates which are scheduled to be held within the
next two weeks. Such firm resolutions and conscientious efforts
upon the part of each member will certainly result in a bigger and
I better Society.

THE COMRADES CLUBS
Since its formation several years ago the Comrades Club has
been one of the most active organizations on the campus. This year
more has been done for its growth and development than in any pre
vious year. Twenty members have been taken in since the opening
of the school year.
The Club has teams to represent it in all branches of sports, and
from these teams men have been developed that have made the varsi
ty teams of the college.
Knowin'; that one should be developed in all things we not only
participate in athletics but in literary activiites as well. At various
times programs have been given in the college chapel by members of
the club and much benefit is derived from them because they seem to
put into the young men those manly qualities which are essential to
success in life.
In keeping with the custom of the club an excellent program was
rendered on the night of January 15th, in the college chapel. Quite
* f number of members participated in the exercises, and some very
interesting numbers were rendered by the quartet and others. The
program seemed to be enjoyed by all.
Thq club stands for the betterment of the college, scholarship,
and uplift. —Paskal McDow, ’28.
On February 2, 1925, the first preliminaries for the inter-collegi
ate debating team at Morehouse College were held-
There were not as many candidates appearing in the first pre-
liminaries this season as in the past season; however, those present
exhibited much enthusiasm and earnestness, which indicated bright
hopes for a Stella team this season.
