FOR A LYCEUM COURSE.
Canvass of the City to be Made Dur
ing Next Week.
At a meeting of a committee held
on Tuesday afternoon it was decided to
make an earnest effort for the sup
port n-ecessary to secure an intercol
legiate lyceum course for Newberry.
The four colleges in the state co-oper
ating in this movement are Wofford,
Furman, Clemson and Winthrop, and
it is very much desired to include
Newberry college among the number.
The course which it is desired to se
cure is one of the best which it is pos
sible to get, including men of such
ability and prominence as Dr. Henry
Van Dyke, of Princeton, and Dr.
Clark, of the University of Chicago.
At a meeting on Tuesday afternoon
there were present President James
A. B. Scherer, of the college, Dr.
George B. Cromer, Mr. W. H. Wal
lace, Mr. T. J. McCrary, Col. W. H.
Hunt, Mr. F. N. Martin and Mr. R.
D. Wright. It was decided to begin
a canvass of the city next week in the
endeavor to secure the s'ale of
enough tickets to guarantee the cost
of the course. In order to do so it
will be necessary to sell one hundred
double tickets,-one hundred tickets
entitling two to admission to the lec
It is desired to have the lectures in
the new assembly hall at the college,
which is inl every way fitted for such
occasions. The proceeds are to be
applied for the purpose of furnishing
the hall and providing for a similiar
course in the future.
The movement is most worthy and
ought to succeed and no doubt will.
