American life and the Christian Church have never met a more severe and searching test than they are meeting to-day in the presence of these foreign students in our schools. These young men and women from many lands are testing the honesty of the political and social axioms which have constituted our American tradition. They are proving the reality of our profession of Christian brotherhood and equality. Almost all of them came here full of confidence and hope. Many of them are going back disillusioned, some bitter, some sorrowful Many of them received their first shock at the port of entry as they came in. Some of them went on and met with the very evils which they had come to America to transcend. Some found that the Christianity which they had acquired from American missionaries was not confirmed by the Christianity which they met in the land which had sent the missionaries forth.
