$30,000 FOR CHICORA
(Continued from Page One.)
the needs of Chlcora College and the
urgent necessity of raising $30,000 In
Greenville for the erection of a dor
mitory and the making of certain
improvements in the present plant
that are obliged .to bo made at once.
Short talks were made by Dr. T. W.
Sloan, Mr', M. F. Ansel. Mr. C. E.
Graham. Mr. G. G. Mayes and others.
The burden of the talks was the fact
that, from a business standpoint if
from no other, Greenville could not
afford to let Chlcora College be re
moved from here; that certain Im
provements in tlie present plant were
absolutely necessary; that conditions
such as class room accommodations
etc., at the college now were almost
unbearable; that the necessary relief
should be forthcoming from the city
of Greenville, and must bo forthcom
ing If tlx* institution is to remain
$?Q,000 n Year.
As a matter of dollars and cents,
Chlcora College Is worth $60,000 a
year to the city of Greenville. That
much money Is spent here every year
because of the Institution. Greenville
is asked to come forward now and
glvo $H0,000 to a college that will
give back $?00,000 In the course of
10 years. Thus it can be seen what
a loss tp Greenville the removal of
the college would he, that is, meas
ured in dollars and cents. It was
the unanimous opinion of the con
ference yesterday afternoon that the
removal of the college from Green
ville would demoralize Presbyterian
ism In this city, and prove a "black
eyo" to the community as a whole
that would not he eradicated in years,

Chlcora College was organized in
!8!Kl under the auspices of the three
Presbyterian churches of the city of
Greenville. Thirteen years later it
was bought by the Presbyteries of
the Synod of South Carolina. Since
Its organization, the institution has
grown steadily. Dormitory capacity
has been increased from year to year
as the needs of the institution de
manded until three years ago, when
the present beautiful building was
Notwithstanding frequent enlarge
ments of the plant, the patronage OX
ceeded the material developments,
and the Institution has been corbell
ed to refuse, applicants n?w for
t^ree years. Owing to the great de
mand for enlarged accommodations,
the board of trustees thought Ber
louBly of removing to some subur
ban site and selling the present val
uable property In order to get a larg
or equipment. However, it has been
decided to allow the college to re
