All other exercises of the college were dispensed with and the en tire force of workers assembled in the chapel and devoted the time to discussions of problems affecting rural and city life in the various sections of the State represented. Special addresses were made by designated mem bers of the faculty and interest ing papers were read by students assigned to this feature ol the conference. The day was most interestingly and profitably spent and has doubtless inspired many ideas of community improvement among all attendants. The day will be an annual observance in the future life of the college. It is a notable fact that of the 887 students enrolled in the insti tution this session, 697 came from farms. This shows that our people are lining up strong on agricultural education. The other trades and occupations of industrial life are also well rep resented. The students have come from six states aside from South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia and Flordia are well represented. The annual summer session for teachers will begin this year June 29th, and last four weeks. A large concourse of students is expected. Courses in all the lit erary, industrial and agricultura A. P.
