AT AUG USTAN A
All is quiet now at Augustana, Sat
urday being the final day of the
fall term. As the holiday vacation
extends over a period of nearly
three weeks, most of the students
departed for their respective homes.
Wednesday, Jan. 10, marks the
opening day of the spring term.
Nearly one-third of the $46,000,
which must be raised by the author
ities of Augustana college before
next September, in order to secure
the late Senator Ericsson's bequest
of a like amount and Consul Smith's
donation of $25,000, has been
pledged and the outlook for the gath
ering of the remaining two-thirds is
very favorable. Dr. G. A. Andreen,
president of Augustana, who Is now
out on a soliciting tour for this fund,
returned home last night from
Jamestown, N. Y., where he has
been working during the past two
weeks. He reports that more than
$1,500 was promised in that dis
trict and that the people are re
sponding even better than they did
for the Jubilee fund. Just before
Thanksgiving several hundred circu
lar letters were sent to the Luther
league of the synod being in the
nature of an appeal to the young
Augustana. Dr. Andreen states
that many of tho leagues have re
sponded liberally and that he hopes
through them to raise the necessary
$46,000. The doctor will remain in
the tri-c'ties during the holidays. His
next campaign will probably be car
ried on in the vicinity of Chicago.
We Do Not Bleach
our shirts to death. Look at any of the shirts of our old
and steady customers and you will note that the colors
are just as bright as when first laundered.
