ANN ARBOR, MICH.
The Inland Press
The Sunday morning services of the Students' Christian Association, inseparably connected, in the remembrances of the older Alumni, with the University Chapel, are now held. in the auditorium of Newberry Hall. Attended mainly by students of the University, they bring together audiences varying in numbers from one hundred and fifty to four or even five hundred. The programme of the exercises consists of singing, reading of the Scriptures, and an address, from fifteen minutes to half an hour in length, upon some topic germane. to the purposes of the Association.
The addresses which are heard at these services are various in character. Sometimes they are appeals by members of the Association in the interest of specific objects, sometimes informal talks by religious workers who are visiting in the city At somewhat irregular intervals members of the Faculties appear upon the programme. The President of the Unversity, in accordance with an established custom, delivers at the beginning of each year what is known as the Annual Address.
The twenty addresses of which the body of this volume is composed, were delivered by the President and by members of the University Faculties. The President's Annual Address, given at the beginning of last year, appears on pages 141-150. The remaining addresses form a series of which it will be necessary to speak in some detail.
