are rejoicing over the victory they
have won in the endowment fund
campaign they have been conducting
for some months.
The joint committee, representing
the three institutions of the church
in this State, that has been managing]
the campaign met in Columbia, when
it was found by the reports made that
the $200,000 they had set out to raisehad
been subscribed in full, with a
margin over. It is felt that this is no
little achievement for the 26,000 members
of this church to subscribe for
its colleges in addition to the large
amounts they are regularly giving for
current expenses and the extensive*
benevolent work they are interested j
At the outset the church did not
have as an incentive the promise of ;
any large gift from any outside indi-1
viduals or boards to be paid upon|

Presbyterians of the State were!

financial aid but of improving the
schools for the sake of the church,
that they would not fail to improve
such compelling opportunity, and their
faith has been rewarded.
Dr. Harms in Spartanburg.
President J. H. Harms, of Newberry
college, made the address. He is a
man of strong physique, impressive
manner, thoughtful and cultured style

in Spartanburg, he won distinctly
the favor of his audience and made
an address marked by grace of delivery,
freshness of expression and excellence
of taste.?Spartanburg Herald's
