Trustees Have Dlscussed Dls
posltion of It?A Curry
Wldo-aproad Intoreat la felt here ln
tho oharaotor of the.dlspoaltlon that wlll
bo mado of tho Peabody fund.
When Dr. Curry became 111, and he waa
vory alol. whon tho Board of Truatsea ot
tho fund met, tho quoatlon waa at onoo
BUggostod: "What would bocomo of - tho
fund lf Dr, Curry Bhould dlo7" AU folt
that lt would hardly bo posslble to flnd
a man who would admlnlstor Its oarn
lngs as well as Dr. Curry hnd dono for
bo many years.' Tho bollof haa boon
growlng atep.~lly alnoo the death of Dr.
Curry that one of two thlngs would bo
dono wlth the |2,100,000 that remalna of
tho logaoy of Mr, Peabody to popular
eduoatlon ln the United States.
Ono augges'tTon. waa that lt should be
located. Thls .can best be lllustrated,
posslbly. The Vlrglnla State Female
Normal, at Farmvllle, has been rocolvlng
SS.000 annually, say, from tho Poabody
fund. In locatlng the fund enough money .
would be put aalde to yleld $5,000 a year,
and tho earnlng would be perennlal, alnce
the prlnclpal would not be touohed. The
trusteea would aeleot certain schools
whlch were dolng a flne work, were flll
Ing a misslon worthlly and needed help
to meet the demands made upon them.
These would have entruated to them
certain amounts whlch would make a
aubstantial annual yleld to be used ln
meetlng the expenses. .
The other plan suggested ls that tne
entire fund shall be turned over tc. the
members of the General Educatlon
Board, whlch is dolng so much now ln
the interest of educatlon In the South,
Tho prlnclpal will probably never be
touohed, at least not for a long tlme,
When tho Peabody Board met some tlme
ago ln Washington the questlon of What
should be done oventunlly with the fund
was dlscussed, *
It would not bo surprlslng lf the trus?
tees used a part of the money for the

Curry. but what shape thls w'" take ls
probably a mattor llttlo dlscussed so far.
