While eating, another party of

the party were donors of Berea, their
home being near Philadelphia, but as
they had never visited Berea, we were
able to give them something of the
magnitude of our work here, and
thereby have bound them more close

where he was alliance athletic direc

cording to a clipping sent us from a
New Haven paper.
In Hammond, Ind., in July, Mr.
Ross saved, from drowning, a young
man who had been overcome in the
water and was going down the thirds
time, when Mr. Ross dived in after
him. "It was a hard tussel," sayi
the report, ''but Mr. Ross landed the
drowning man on the shore alive." i
Friends of Mr. Ross in New Haven
claim that this is not the first nun
that he has saved from drowning. (
They call to mind two other occa-,
sions where he threw his own lfe in '
jeopardy to save others. When a
mere boy, some years ago, he rescued
a playmate, who was going down the
last time, in the East Haven river.
At another time he rescued a woman
from drowning in the sound off the
New Haven Normal School of Gym
nastics gymnasium at Silver Sands.
A movement has been initiated
by friends of Mr. Ross in New Haven

passed thru several crises, and after
each crisis we were stronger and bet

had been weak or foolish, or our citi

our march to national greatness,
there would have been retreat. But
no nation has been so fortunate in
its leaders, and no leaders have been
more bravely followed. Therefore,
there has been no retreat.

all their engines of destruction upon
