s- The Prospects for Fine Opening Aus
picious-Some New Teachers
New Boarding Hall.
1y. 1.ne. It ia-: formed part of the
nnelif 11 his colmlnity for mre than
)m- ,iftv years. Many of our young men
not and young women have been educat
the ed there and hundreds from differ
ard ent parts of South Carolina have
>art come and spent from one to five years
>tal with us and thus were formed ties
;ion which are binding and from far and
as near there is a living active interest
in Newberry college.
030 It is gratifying to learn that the
133 prospects for -the opening now so
796 w>r at hand are so auspicious and
. that we are to have so able a faculty
fol- into whose hands wil, be placed the
tramin- of so mn,:ty )nnng minds.
020 The following in regard to the
918 opening was received by The Herald
and News the day it appeared in the
Lool daily papers and we take great
the pleasure in giving it place in our col
sed umn s even though several -days after
an its appearance in the daily papers:

ilso Prof. Rovy Z. Thomas, Ph. D., has
for already arrived with his family, to
ms take charge of the science depart
atment, which will be correlated *with
the school of Technology, to the bet
250 terment of both departments. The
790 entire faculty will be on the campus
705s nxMonday to prepare Sforte
825th. At a. in., on the following Fri
.-day, the formal openn exercises
Iwill be held in Holland Hall, to. which
3 all friends of the college are invited.
135 1Greetings will ab extended to th'e
570 students by members of the faculty
9' and by representatives of the Newe
berry churches. On Friday evening
the usual' reception will be .given by
01i the 'College Christian Association,
9 wnhich has already presented every
650 prospective student with a neat and
60 instructive ~hand-book. -President
625' Scherer has just completed the sum
640 mer canvass by a visit to North Car
- olina which will rank next to this
155 state in the number of new students
525 next session.
15 Everybody connected with the col
45 lege rejoices in the fact that the hand
.some new boarding hall, just complet
325 ed, will. be in charge of Mr. and Mrs.
John A Summer, who have been as
700 sociated with the hospitalities of
500 Newberry college for years. Nothing
513 could better guarantee t'he successful
051 management of the boarding accom
les. modations for the students. Another
287 welcome piece of news for the dormi
58 tory students, at least, will be found
194 in the announcement that the hall
329 ways of the three stories will be sup
324 plied with electric lights. The wir
53 ing for this purpose will be suffi-'
368 iently heavy to carry lights for ev
34 ery room in the building if this shal.
702 be deemed advisable at some~ future
267 time. The old boarding hall will be
33 temporarily utilized as an additional
dormitory, on account of the over
966 flow of applicants. Every effort will
275 be made by the authorities to accom
).modate the unusually large body of
32 students that have already asked for
271 nrolment, but the co-operation of
15s the hospitable citizens of Newberry
291 will be needful as never before.

191 especially to the school children.
