Dedication of Fine Arts Build
ing at the Greenville Wo
man's Building. .
Please allow me space in your col
umns for a brief outline, by a visitoi
in the college, who attended the dedi
cation of the Fine Arts Building. In
the beginning I wish I had the powei
to describe this exquisite piece of ar
chitecture. Words fail when I gaze
on such splendor. Indeed, "a thing ol
beauty is a joy forever." This is con
sidered one of the handsomest struc
tures in the South, with a cost of
The auditorium seats something
over twelve hundred persons, being
sixty feet wide, one hundred feet
long and height of fully thirty feet.
At 2:30 Friday afternoon, Decem
ber 1, the program opened by the
singing of the Alma Mater, followed
by prayer by Dr. D. M. Douglass, Dr.
Ramsay presiding over the meeting.
The following presidents of col
leges or worthy representatives were
introduced, each educator bringing
greetings from their own institution
to the college and congratulating both
Dr. Ramsay and the Baptist denomi
nation for such a structure. The
speeches came in the following order:
Anderson, Chicora, Citadel, Clem
son, Coker, College of Charleston,
Converse, Due West, Erskine, Fur
man, Lander, Limestone, Medical
College of Charleston, Newberry,
Presbyterian Theological Seminary,
University of South Carolina, Wes
leyan, Winthrop, Wofford, and even
the Theological Seminary at Louis
The coming of these representa
tives from colleges for men and wo
men, both denominational and state,
is an interesting feature in the col
lege history and a significant fact in
itself that such busy men should turn
aside for an event of this kind.
At 8:30 o'clock we assembled again J
in the auditorium where we listened ^
to a most eloquent address, "Woman '
in Modern Life," by Edgar Allen
Young, D. D., L. L. D., of the Theo
logical Seminary at Louisville; the
man known all over the world as one
of the greatest living Baptists. Cer
tainly this subject was handled in a
masterly way, and here I must say
to the women that he advocates wo
men geing to the polls. ,
All thoroughly enjoyed this won- 1
derful address from such a wonderful
man. This meeting was presided over
by Mayor Hyde of Charleston, chair
man of the Board of Trustees.
After the address a formal dedi
?ation of the building followed. In
this I feel sure Dr. Ramsay was the
lappiest one in the auditorium when
the keys were presented to him. This
was indeed impressive-this building
to stand as a monument to him for
lis life of service devoted to the edu
cation of our girls. Wo all share in
Saturday at 4 p. m., .1 processional

At 8:30 we again assembled in the
rast auditorium for the sacred con

non of Mr. George M. Schaefer, head
)f the music department of G. W. C.
The vesper services marked the
