The Convention committee and its staff have been working for months in preparing an educational and entertaining program and adequate facilities for thousands of college students and lay members of the association expected to attend. Miss Mary Robert Stewart, a member of the Committee staff, visited the Institute last Thursday for the purpose of extending an invitation to the Cadets. Miss Stewart has visited recently many colleges in the South, including Clemson, Citadel, VPI, N. C. S. and W. & L.

The purpose of the convention is to increase the Christian understanding of these students, the majority of whom have worked in their individual groups with this objective. The Convention will be characterized by interracial and intercollegiate fellowship. A chief attraction of this particular convention is the play "Operation at One." The play is a tense, vivid drama of missionary life in China. It was written by Miss Maude Sarvis, who spent fifteen years in Nanking as a missionary. The cast is composed of carefully selected actors and actresses. The convention has secured a large number of important persons vention.
