BRITISH COLUMBIA'S first and only woman student mi lister Is making her fellow "theologs" sit up and take notice. 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 next spring. There was a time when the church was man's last stronghold of supremacy. Now that's gone. The dignitaries o 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. T . t . A.... a i . in uie pasi iwu years, iwss ).. 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-year students. LEADS STUDENTS OF HER CLASS. When the college held iti 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 college 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. Lydla Gruchy of Saskatoon. The Ontario and the Alberta theological 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 minuter, with a church like any man," she replied when asked what branch of work the would 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 r stationed at one of the West Vancouver churches. "Her congregations liked her very much tost year," said college officials, discussing Mjts Hughes' work, I i "i ' Players Club Goes On Tour Show Tonight In Island City MISS NORA H. HUGHES. "I And theology as heavy aa any other course I have ever taken," she said in answer to a question. "My scientific training Is an awfully good background, however." Miss Hughes received her Master of Arts degree from U. B. C. in 1934 and took postgraduate work In botany at the University of Chicago. "I've wanted to be a minister for a long time," she said, in answer to a question, "but the college was only opened to women three or four years ago." men love nt?n giriswith lrBlS.lrB If itm irt ptptv 4 Ml rat, SM fll Unu yM to iUikm tad puttaa.
