The New Departure in Social Service



(We invite all men in the University to submit communications on subjects of timely interest.)

To the Editors of the CRIMSON:

The social service movement outlined in this morning's CRIMSON will give an opportunity to men in every walk of life to be of real service to the people among whom their work after leaving the University is to be. It is seldom that one finds such a well-known and active graduate as Mr. Cutts leaving his law practice in the West and coming East eager for the opportunities that the new work offers.

Organization, the most attractive of all stages in any project is the condition in which one finds the problem at present. It is only by concerted, intelligent co-operation that a plan as enormous and far-reaching as Mr. Cutts's can hope to succeed. Now, co-operation in such a matter as this is an investment that every graduate of this University should consider and partake of.

When every man in the Senior class receives, as he shortly will, a postal requesting his co-operation and assistance, he should without hesitation send in his name as a participant in the work. It is a big enough problem to be the prime interest of everyone that graduates. But that of course is neither expected nor asked; what is asked--and righteously--is that everyone make it his "way-side" work, that everyone have always open a social service "eye."

Religion is at the present time becoming more and more humanistic in its application--and social service is another word for a laboratory course in human nature. No man can rightfully say that he has known or tried to benefit man until he has seen specimens of his own species that need aid--not aid always of substantial nature--but the moral and mental aid that an educated man can give his uneducated brothers.

The United States is a young country into which come monthly or even daily swarms of foreigners--to all intents and purposes unrestricted. These people will be ancestors of future Americans and it is the duty of those of us born and bred under the great advantages of this country to help in the best way we can the new-comers, that they may be real Americans, and a credit rather than a dead-weight to the country.
