er. Announcement of success In the
campaign to win the Ericson bequest j
of $40,000 and the C. A. Smith dona-i
tlon of $25,000 was made by Dr. Gus- j
tar Andreen, president of the Insti
tution, at chapel exercises this morn-!

victory bad been achieved was short '
$47 472 31
The addition of $117,000 to the Jub
ilee endowment fund of approximately
$275,000 raised two years ago, together
with other funds and property pos-
! sessed by the college from which In
come is derived, brings the total en
dowment fund of the institution to
nearly $500,000, 'which practically as
sures Augustana's place in the educa
tional world for all future. In making
the announcement. Dr. Andreen said:
VICTORY IS RECORDED.
"I know that you already appreciate
that the annals of Augustana for Oct.
6, 1912, will not record a defeat but a
victory. I need hardly inform you that
the conditions of the Ericson bequest
were fulfilled last Saturday noon.
"When word reached the college sev
eral months ago that Senator Ericson
had made a bequest of $56,000 to the
i college on condition
that It would '
large a thing so soon after the raising
of the Jubilee fund. However, our peo
ple responded nobly to the work.
M l HER LEAGI ES TAKE LEAD.
"The first to come forward and help
vi ere the young people's societies. The
Luther leagues of the Green Bay,
Mich., district were the first to assist
with a donation of $250. The Ishpe
ming, Mich, district next responded
with $500. Then the Rock Island,
Caleshurg and Rockford districts each
came forward with $1,000. Altogether
tne Luther leagues of the synod raised
between $11,000 and $13,000.
"Then the soliciting was begun,
more especially in the Mississippi val
ley. The largest army that went forth
was composed of the 6tudents them
selves, 150 strong, who canvassed the
tri-cities in the last stages of the cam
paign. The result was that $1,000 was
secured in this manner.

Here President Andreen took occa
sion to pay tribute to the faculty of the
institution and expressed the hope
that it would not be broken. He de
clared that Professor Sebellus had Just
declined a call elsewhere, and that
Professor Anderson had also been of
fered a tempting position. He hoped,
however, that the latter would alsa
decide to remain at Augustana.
92,000 FROM IENKMANS.
President Andreen also announced
that a further contribution had been
received from the Denkmann heirs in
the form of a check for $2,000 received
from Mrs. John II. Hauberg last Fri
day. The money will be used for the
purchase of books for the Denkmann
Memorial library. This together with
other contributions to the Ericson fund
received late Saturday and today, will
probably bring the total close to $50,
000. Following Dr. Andreen's address he
called upon Rev. N. J. Forsberg, sec
retary of the college board of direc
tors, for a ehort speech. The latter
responded, paying high tribute to the
work of Dr. Andreen, whom he char
acterized as "Our Augustana Roose

formerly of Galva, but now of Moline,
also spoke briefly. He was a student
of Augustana when the college was lo

First church, Moline, also spoke as
representative of the later alumni of
the institution. He linked the name of
Professor I. M. Anderson with the
Ericson fund and declared that "if the
board of directors will take steps to
save Professor Anderson for the Insti
tution, we of Moline will rejoice as
much as if another $117,000 were se
cured for the college."
