LEADS STUDENTS OF HER CLASS. is RITISH making her COLUMBIA'S fellow first "theologs" and only sit up woman and take student notice. minister This summer she will preach two sermons each Sunday from the pulpit of a West Vancouver Church, although she won't receive her divinity degree or be titled "Rev." until spring. There was a time when the church was man's last stronghold of supremacy. Now that's gone.

The dignitaries of the United Church didn't take it very seriously when on June 9, 1937, Miss Nora H. Hughes of Abbotsford, graduate of the University of B.C., was accepted as a candidate for the ministry. But they are now ready to admit that their one woman minister is brilliant. In the past two years, Hughes, who before taking to holy orders was an instructor in botany at the University, has shown them a thing or two. In 1938, at the close of her first year of study in Union College, she won the two scholarships for highest standing among first- When the college held its spring convocation last week, Miss Hughes received the scholarship indicating that she had led the second year students.

The masculine "theologs" who are studying with her don't seem to be the least resentful about it all. In fact, just before the lege term closed, they elected her president of the Students' Theological Society of Union College. Miss Hughes is the fourth woman in the Dominion to study theology. The first graduate was Rev. Lydia Gruchy of Saskatoon.

The Ontario and the Alberta theoiogical colleges each have one woman student. The vivacious, humorous little lady in tweeds, with her English blue eyes and soft English accent, isn't at all what a woman minister might be expected to be. She doesn't like to be interviewed and 'she has a British reticence about discussing her unusual choice of career. "Of course, I like it," she said, "I wouldn't be in it if I didn't. "I want to be a regular minister, with a church like any she replied when asked what branch of work she follow after graduation, next year.

Last summer Miss Hughes shouldered her summer mission work with her male colleagues and was sent to Port Kells, where she preached three sermons every Sunday. This summer Miss Hughes will be stationed at one of the West Vancouver churches. "Her congregations her very much last year," said college officials, discussing Miss Hughes' work. -Photos of Mr. and Mrs.
