Prominent Educators Visit Snow
Hill And Talk In The Interest
Of Washington ( ollege
The members of the Alumni Asso
. ciation of Washington College, who
now reside in Worcester County and
| on the Eastern Shore of Virginia with
I Dr. Clarence P. Gould, President of
i the College, Dr. M. Bates Stephens,
one of the best known Schoolmen of
the State, Hon. E. W. McMaster,
Superintendent of Schools of Worces
ter County, and Mr. John I. Coulbourn,
Chairman of the Finance Committee
of Washington College, and the High
i School Principals of Worcester County
as their guests, held a meeting in the
Social Room of the M. E. Church in
Snow Hill on Friday evening, April
• After partaking of a very delightful
1 meal served by the ladies of the
“ Church, the meeting was called to
• order by Mr. William I). Corddr.v one
; of the members of the Board of Visit
ors, and Governors of Washington Col
. lege, who presided. In stating the
; purpose of the meeting, Mr. Corddr.v
. said in part—“ This meeting has been
! called in the interest of the only Col
• lege on the Eastern Shore of Mary*
• land, Washington College." “It so
' happens that it is one of the oldest
colleges in the I'nitcd States, having
been organized only six year- after
< the signing of the Declaration of In
; dependence." ..It has been dear to the
hearts of Eastern Shoreman for nearly
140 years.” “The age of an educa
tional institution as well as a financial
■ or commercial institution, means
something.” It indicates that it has
rendered service, satisfactory service,
and that it has a right to live and con-
I tinue to serve in this age—in fact,
there is greater need for it today, than
: when George Washington was a mem
• her of the Board.”
, Mr. John I. Coulbourn, a prominent
alumnus of the College, was presented,
i and spoke very feelingly of the ser
vice the college had rendered him; of
his love for the old institution; of the
lasting friendships he had made when
a student of the college.
Dr. Gould was then introduced and
; made a very strong address, stressing
the advantage of a small college.
Dr. Stephens was the next speaker.
He spoke at length upon the necessity
for a college on the Eastern Shore and
1 made a strong appeal for the loyal
' j support of Washington College by all
the School men of the Eastern Shore.
Dr. Burk, Rector of St. Paul’s P. E.
I Church at Ocean City, who is an alum
nus of the University of Pennsylvania
also of Washington College, was ask
! ed to explain the relationship between
these two institutions, and succeeded
, in showing conclusively that they are
1 first cousins.
The meeting was apparently a sue-,
cess in every detail and it would seem !
I that the spirit manifested at this
meeting will be reflected in the en-I
rollment from this section next Fall,;

Sacred to the memory of my dear
i husband, D. Curtis Callahan, who
entered into eternal rest, April 19th,
“Gone, loved, but not forgotten."
Five dreary years have passed away,
Vet seems hut yesterday
Since I saw them place your form
Beneath the cold, cold clay.
I often sit and think
Of the one I loved so dear;
His vision grows so clear sometimes.
I feel he must he near.
I mourn for him in silence.
No eyes can see me weep;
But many silent tears I shod,
! When others are asleep.
; Time may heal aching hearts,
Time may make the wound less sore;
B it time will never stop the longing
For my loved one gone before.
