Note What These Educators Have to Say:
CHATAUQUA AMONG Us"^!
I am delighted with tlio prospects
of the "Hume Study Circle." The
Virginian-Pilot has bejaui
tuuqtia among us. and I hope will meet
wit 11 some measure of the success of
that wonderful educational agency.
The subjects of study are well selected,
are liberalizing and at the same time
practical and will be handled by com?
petent specialists. I hope that many of
V, the readers will follow the course con
if tinuously. it is a noble scheme.
CARL E. GRAMMER,
Rector Christ's l*. 10. Church.
GUARANTEE OF RELIABILITY.
I am very glad to note that you
have arranged to bring before the
people well written articles on great
historical subjects- The names of
the authors of those articles arc it
gunranh e of their reliability, and a
promise that they will he read- It is
needless to say that 1 commend the
enterprise. W. J- YOUNG,
Pastor Epworth M. 13. Church.
"As a means of Interesting and In?
structing the public in matters of great
value. I approve and
"Home study Circle" o
Pilot. Up-to-date discussions by such
eminent authorities as the prospectus
announce are far in advance of sensa?
tional and unreliable newspaper matter,
and should, therefore, be read and
urged upon others.
"XV. P. SMITH.
"Pastor Church of Christ,
A KARL OPPORTUNITY
I write to express my apprecia?
tion of the fact thai your paper
is to present to our people a tare
opportunity of informing themselves
on seme of the most helpful subjects.
The "Home Study Circle" course is a
unique idea; and I hope that every one
who can will avail himself of the val?
uable privilege it offers.
"S. <'. HATCHER,
"Pastor Queen St. M. B. Church."
Your "Home Study t'ircle" scheme
of instruction is an admirable plan
for popularizing literature. The masses
can. in this way, become familiar with
the Interesting topics you have an?
nounced and with the best known
authors of the day. I think .,'
it will result in the organization 3
of literary clubs by those who have ]
no; given much attention to the sub- A
Ject, and the Virginian-Pilot will bo <<j
then a daily text book. J
M. B. WHARTON, ?
Pastor Freemason St. Baptist Church. ^
"I consider the Home Study Cir?
cle you are about to introduce Into
the columns of your paper an ex?
cellent method of popularizing learn?
ing, another and valuable branch
of university extension. 1 need hardly
say that 1 endorse the movement. With
best wishes, Yours truly.
"R. H. BENNETT,

"1 heartily commend the purpose and
plan of the Virginian-Pilot's 'Home
Study Circle,' believing that this use?
ful instruction and good literature will
be put within the reach of all. This

Its projector deserves to be recognized

thereby afford encouragement to so
laudable an enterprise.

I look forward with much Intt : st : i
the appearance of the "Home Study
Circle" feature in your very able Jour?
nal, and desire to commend I: t i t .
nttetitlon of the working class of our
city. I think it will result in awaken?
ing much Interest in matters with
which they have, heretofore, had llttl
opportunity, perhaps little Inclination,
to look into, and pr impt them to ex?
plore wider fields of improvement. The
humanizing, christianizing and civiliz?
ing influences will prove a blessing to
all who avail themselves of this popular
and economical mod ? of culture.

AROUSE AN INTEREST IN STUDY
"The enterprise of the Virginian-Pilot
in furnishing to the renders of their
excellent paper the series of articles of
the Heine Study Circle, should be es?
pecially commended by educators and
students. .Inditing from the list of
contributors we shall expect a rare
treat every day from some one of
these writers. No teacher or student
of history, science, literature or art
should be without the paper. Such ar?
ticles arouse an interest In study which
dry text books often fall to do.
