During his afliction he was

MUNGS OF STATE COLLEGE
Orangeburg, ' April 27. -Tues
day April 14th, the birthday of
Senator Justin, Snyth Morrill, pf
Vermont, fath^I*5of the 'Land
Grant colleges, was observed by
the faculty and students of the
State College as agricultural day.
All other exercises of the college
were dispensed with and the en
tire force of workers assembled
in the chapel and devoted the
time to discussions of problems
affecting rural and city life in
the various sections of the State
represented. Special addresses
were made by designated mem
bers of the faculty and interest
ing papers were read by students
assigned to this feature ol the
conference. The day was most
interestingly and profitably spent
and has doubtless inspired many
ideas of community improvement
among all attendants. The day
will be an annual observance in
the future life of the college.
It is a notable fact that of the
887 students enrolled in the insti
tution this session, 697 came
from farms. This shows that
our people are lining up strong
on agricultural education. The
other trades and occupations of
industrial life are also well rep
resented. The students have
come from six states aside from
South Carolina, North Carolina,
Georgia and Flordia are well
The annual summer session for
teachers will begin this year
June 29th, and last four weeks.
A large concourse of students is
expected. Courses in all the lit
