Perhaps the most detrimental misconception in regard to the annual Student Conference is that it is a solely religious or missionary convention; this idea is particularly prevalent this year, due, perhaps, to the influence of the Des Moines Convention. Haunted by the phantom of an overgrown Sunday School picnic, many people who would attend if rightly informed, are scared away.
The Silver Bay Conference is not denominational, or purely religious; instead, it is an ideal place to spend a pleasant vacation, giving the additional advantages of contact with men worth knowing. No one is going to ask the Harvard delegates to spend their lives among the misguided Somalilander, or even to contribute to his enlightenment.
But for any man who desires to find the rare combination of thorough going fun with intellectual stimulus and inspiration, there is no better place than the conference on Lake George from June 25 to July 5.
