Under the leadership of Bro. Freeman the students organized during
the 1918-'19 session a class for the study of missions, both home and
foreign, with particular emphasis on the study of foreign missions.
This class meets each Monday evening. Students are urged to take
an active interest in this voluntary study.
Foreign Language Club

or modern, and to afford opportunity for wholesome social entertainment,
the Foreign Language Club meets every month when
possible, giving a program in foreign languages of song, dialogue,
poems, plays, etc. During the last year some very pleasant evenings
were thus spent and some foreign language club "hikes" were taken to
Elm Creek. On one of these the French and Spanish classes entertained
two young men from Monterrey, N. L.. Mexico. It is hoped that
a foreign language club banquet may be given in 1919-1920.
