Newberry College Starts With Ove
Two Hundred at. Opening Day
Newberry College has begun th<
sessionl of 1900 tuder very flat-terinl
prospects. 'Tlhe enrolilient, this week
is upwards of two Iihndred, whiell
is the largest nnber for the first
week in the history of the institution.
Under the changes which have beer
made in the curriculum there was do
lay in making assignmient, but om
Friday 212 had been enrolled. Practi.
cally all of the old students have re
turned( and with them come autj
new' ones. THie college classes are all
full and in the graduating class ther4
will be about thirty or forty. Alto.
gether the prospects for the institu
tion in the first year of the second
century of its existance are very en
Twenty-nine years ago when the
college returned to Newberry, after a
Sojourn at Walhalla for about eight
years, there was not a building on the
campis, and the first few months of
the school were taught in the upper
story of a store rooi in the town. At
that time there were only two pro
fessors in the college proper, and two
in the preparatory department who
were adjunct professors for the college
classes. The total enrollment amounted
to about sixty, and five to seven was
coisidered Ia fairly good graduating
Before the end of the first year the
main building oil the college grounds
was completed an(I the sessions were
held there. Dr. (leo. W. Holland and
Prof. Dan Arrington dlid the greater
part. of' the teaching and it was well
done. for boti of them were equipped
to t(each 1113 branch in tile curriculum.
Even then tlie course of study was as
far alvanced as it is now and the
Y011un", mlen who went out from the in
stitution were well drilled.
(1raduallv and steadily the college
h1:s grown, not only with the Luth
eranli delollillnation ill this state to
which it belongs, bIt with the people
of Nevberry of all denomilnations
wh 1( feel that il is their col
leg in a tlwelliar sense, and while
file institioniul is tle property of the
Litheraii chireh, it is inl no sense see
tarian. 'This is;realized by the peo
ple of this community, for whenever
: call for help is made the response
comes from all classes of our people.
Only last year, when Mr. Carnegie
ma(le his offer of $10,000.00 on con
dition that a. similar amount he rals
ed, it took only a few hours to meet
the conditions and the money was
raised right here among the friends
of the institution.
The faculty now numbers some
fourteen professors, and there are fi
handsome buildings on the camptr
used for the work of the college and
three residences for professors. The
,ymnllasiumtt building is just complet
ed and thle new te.chnical building,
mlade possible by the gift of Mr.
Carniegic, is near completion.
The formal opening of this session
was held in the college auditorium
lFrida.v mnorning. The mRain address
wits mad(e by Rev. WV. H. Greever,
editortof the Lutherani Chutrch Visit
or ii, S. C. Mr. Greever' spoke
of the idleal purpose of education. Tn
thle first place hte said flhat the first
ideal1 was t(o help a student to find

-lin the secondl pla1ce he referred to
lie true life purpos)0e, and said it must
include God( and his glQry. Another
ideal.::of edutcationi was to help the
individual toi fintd: the trute life pur
.penee, in - thir words, help him find his
ealliu. Another purpose of tihe ideal
eduication was to acquaint the indivi
dlual wvith his inv'iruments. Every in
fluence whtich surfrotunds uts in life is
either a help or a hindrance, and the
ideal education would acquaint one
with his environments, so that these
infltences might be helpful. The
ideal aim of education, however, is to
equip the individual for his life \vork,
taking into account his strength and
his weakness. He concluded by ad
tmonishinig the student body that there
was no0 true education, wvhich did not
It htas been the custom for a number
of years to invite also at each opening
thle pastors of the town to extend
a welcome to the students. In ac
e-ordance wvith that custom President
Scherer presented Rev. W. L. Sea
brook, pastor of the Lutheran Church,
who said that he had qome merely to
speak the greetings of his church and
his own greetings. to the young men
and young wornen,. who had come to
cojlege. He said lie un~s glad to see
them here and was always glod te
have them worship at the Lutfheran
church. lie fel theb he could do bet

in the world is to rhel fellow1
Rev. G. A. Wright, he Baptist
church, was also call4d: on and ex
tended his greetings to-'h student El
body. He spoke of the -growth and se
dovelopment of the institution during eli
the past fifteen years, since lie had S
been in Newberry, and said hat some Oi
men who were at the college in its ro
infancy were now old .men, but a ry
college never grows old. Newborry or
college may now be laying the founda- ed(
tion for future usefulness. le said cl
that the college was our college and
the faculty our faculty, 'nd spoke of to
the good will and good' fellowship, di:
which went out to the institution pi
from all the citizens of Newberry. Cl
Dr. E. P. McClintock, who is the gr
oldest minister in continuous service Al
in Newberry, but who on account of R<
ill health resigned the pastorate of mi
the A. R. P. church about a year ago, at
also extended his greetings to the lai
young men. He said it was a matter of esi
congratulation that the purpose of by
the parents of this country was to mi
send their children to college. Another w(
fact which impressed him was nearly of
all of the colleges in this country are by
christian colleges, ang that the presi- C.
dents and professors were christian
men in larger proportions than ever ed
before in the history of this country. W
It was a great pleasure to him as an fo,
old man to note that fact, and it was tll
cheering to all of us, who had spent w.
our lives in God's service. eo,
Rev. B. M. Greer, pa.stor of the hii
Methodist church, was also present fo,
and delighted to see so many hand- an,
some young men anil young wonen ont thi
the roll of Newberry college. He said tal
lie would welcome them as a Method- pa!
ist, minister and was glad to -welcom
them all to his church, vould be gad wa
to have them and to see their success. Nc
Dr. G. B. Cromer, who was for t
eight years president. of the college, il
and who is now a member of the thif
faculty. was called on, but said that. dai
he had nothing to say except to add ed
his Amen to what had been so well the
said by those who had spoken.
Dr. Scherer stated that there were wa
very few rules adopted by the facil- lig
ty for the government of the institu- ly
tionl, but among these there was one tot
which he desired to impress upon the thie
student body, and which he would ex- no
pect them to observe, and that was In
that the faculty confidently -expected ma
all of the students to act asehristian pe,
gentlemen and christian women.' an<

Upon his professiqn of personal faith
in the Lord Jesus' phist. He remain
ed a faithful, consistent iielnber of his
church unto the end, ever. ready to
spend and be spent f& i'er good and
prospority. 'Nearly all his life he was
an officer'of his church, serving as an
elder for 20 years, having been called
to this office in his 27th year, and
holding the officeb of treasurer for 25
years. Thus he lived and died in the
faith, and we confidently believe that
he is now enjoying the rest prepared
for the people of God. In his death,
St Peter's congregation has lost a
true and tried . pillar, and a'Wise
counseller whose word and deeds
will be missed in the councils and ao
tivities of our church.
March 16,1808, he was married to
Ellen Georgeann Lorick. This union
was blessed by four children, Samuel
F., proprietor of the Columbia Hotel,
and of the Wheeler Hotel, Henderson
ville, N. C., Dr. Jacob S., of Prosperity
and Henry F. and Martin L. who live
on the old homestead. Mrs. Wheeler
preceded her huband to the spirit
world more thai 11 years ago, having
departed this life Feb. 14, 1895.
As a man of affairs Mr. Wheeler
was eminently successful. Being
quick to act when opportunity offered
lie accumulated a large property,
which lie managed wisely andi well.
As a citizen and a neighbor he was
always ready to give his time and his
means for that which he believed to
be for the public good, and for the
good and comfort of his fellow man.
In the church, in the state, and in
the community, lie filled an unique
place: and his counsels, his energy,
and his presence will be missed in all
these different paths of life.
But lie is no more. On the 1st day
of May, 1905, he was stricken with
paralysis. He rallied from this stroke,
but several others followed until Sept.
10th his spirit left its tenement of
clay, and was wafted to the world be
yond. ' He suffered much, but lie is
now where the wicked cease from
troubling and the weary are at rest.
Besides his wife, five sisters and
two brothers preceded him to the
world beyond. He leaves - to mourn
their loss, a sister, a brother, four
sons, and one griand child. besides a
large circle of other relatives and
On Tuesday, Sept.11, his body was
laid to rest in the cemetery of St.
Peter's (Piney Woods) Lutheran
Church. The feneral services were
conducted by his pastor. the Rev. E.
