The Philadelphia Itound Table For the Welfare of Colored People at a re cent meeting decided to conduct a vo cational training and hoarding school for boys between the ages of ten and eighteen years. The organization baa been in existence for the past five years. Its headquarters are in the Charities building on South Fifteenth street. Mr. John T. Emlen. secretary of the Armstrong association, is the prime mover in this new feature for the advancement of our people. Mr. Emlen considered the matter from the standpoint of the number of boys available for such an institution, the opportunities these boys would have to do work, the existing educa tional facilities and the type of insti tutions outside of Pennsylvania now giving their attention to vocational ed ucation. At the request of William B. Buck of the Seybert institution, a study was made some months ago by the Arm* Itrong association of the number of dependent, neglected and poor colored children especially needing vocational training in Philadelphia between the ages of ten and sixteen years. The number found was reported ns fol lows: In public and parochial schools. Bo ciety For Charity and miscellaneous or ganizations. boys 203, girls 130. In addition there were 304 children on waiting lists, or who had applied and been refused. There Is. there fore, a possible total of 386 boys and 209 ifirls between the age of ten and sixteen who are in need of some spe cial Instruction which will fit them for life.

This, with the proposed group of buildiugs. will be of fireproof construction. The 0b timated cost of the buildings Is pin cod at $80,000. WORK OF EDWARD WATERS COLLEGE Wins Success After Herd Struggle For Existence. ITS OUTLOOK IS BRIGHT. Institution Fostered by tho Afrioan Methodist Episcopal Church In Jack sonville, Fla., Placed on Firm Footing by Bishop John Hurst With the Co operation of the People^ Jacksonville. Fla.—Edward Waters college, the A. M. E. school of Florida, situated at Jacksonville, under the wise management of Bishop John Hurst, D. D., of Baltimore, is fast forg ing to the front Debt ridden since its birth back in ISSS, it has bad a most heroic struggle for existence. After the destructive fire that swept away the greater part of Jacksonville in 1901, when the college was destroyed. Edward Waters saw some very hard times.' Sometimes hardly existing, the col lege was moved from place to place, now in a rented hall and again in some building, but always with the hope that some day it would have a fixed abode. Every bishop who has served the diocese, together with the good men of Florida, has striven hard to realize that hope, but one reverse after another came until some began to think that surely a relentless fate must be following the Institution. | Bishop Salter, although enfeebled in ; health, got behind the movement on i his going to the district and with the help of the then president. Dr. A. Hen ry Attaway, and the men of Florida who had never given up the struggle, erected Salter hall, a large building of sixty-four rooms, situated on Kings road, the beautiful drive that stretches through the western part of the city. JOHN A. OKEGG, B. A Still heavily encumbered with debt, the school struggled on, but with renewed hope. After bis elevation to the bishopric at Kansas City in 1012 Bishop John Hurst, who was assigned to the diocese of Florida, hastened to the state to look the situation over. The outlook was not very promising; but, with the courage and belief in the ultimate tri umph of right that have always charac terized the man, be at once set to work. He evolved a plan whereby the people of Florida, patting forth herculean ef forts, have swept away the*last penny of indebtedness against the school. Never have the faithful presiding eld ers, pastors and people worked so be fore. At the grand rally held at Mount Zion church In Jacksonville on Oct. 1. 1913, more than $13,000 was raised. Now African Methodism points with pride to her school, and a new day seems to be dawning for the Instltu tion. The old episcopal residence had In the meantime been converted into a beautiful thirty-two roomed dormitory for the boys, so that these two newly painted main buildings, situated on a little over six acres of ground, call forth words of praise from the many passers by on this main traveled thor oughfare. The Rev. John A. Gregg, B. A., the present president, seems to be grasping the work in away that spells success for the institution. His preparation and travel have peculiarly fitted him for the work, and Florida Is blessed in having secured his aid. He was born In Eureka, Kan., Feb 18. 1877. and attended the publit schools of that place and as the only colored member of his class, having served it ns president. He graduated from the high school with honor in 189 G. He then took the scientific cours« in the Southern Kansas academy ol the same city, graduating from th< same in 1897 ns class orator, which honor he won against nine other con tenants, nil white men. In the fall of 1807 he entered the Kansas State university. When th< BfMinlsh-American war broke out It 1808 he left school with a number of bis schoolmates and Joined the Twen ty-third Kansas volunteers and served as quartermaster sergeant with hlf regiment In Cuba.
