The CRIMSON would feel it had accomplished something well worth while if it could persuade its readers to call on the University preachers. Between the hours of 9 and 11 any week-day morning these men who come from various parts of the country to conduct the services in Appleton Chapel are glad to see men in Wadsworth House. It is wrong to assume that only such men are welcomed as have theological doubts or spiritual misgivings to be dispelled. Such men need no urging to seek out the men who can give them the help they need. It is to the others that these words are directed.
These men who come to preach in Appleton are worth knowing, however slightly. They represent wide interests and their reputation is more than local. A five minutes' conversation or simply a handshake gives a man a personal interest in anything the other man does which brings him to the attention of the public. There are doubtless hundreds of men today who wish they had taken advantage of the opportunity to drop in at Wadsworth House and shake hands with Phillips Brooks or Edward Everett Hale. It gives a man a certain pleasure to be able to say he knows such men as these.
