The Rev. F. W. Boaiwright made a
report on the Woman's College and en?

the committee in charge of the collese
and fund has collected in cash on Vir?
ginia pledges during the past year
$2S,l-3 and has ollected for the Gen-1
eral Education Board in cash (10,714.'
The collections up to November 1, 1912,
entitled the committee to draw front
the General Education Board an addi- ;
tional sum of $5,142. The total cadi'
for tue year therefore la praperly
$43.9&0. The grand total of cash col?
lections amount to $313.814.
"We still need," says the report, "to;
collect in Virginia by April 1, 1913,;
Ihe sum of $126.32S, in order to com?
plete the fund of $5<'0.000 in cash that

The committee reports that the work
on the grounds and buildings at the,
new college site is progressing stea l- j
?ly. The exterior walls of the Woman's!
College buildings approach compie-j

mittee hae let to contract at the new

The total expenditure for buildings
and material improvements will ap?
proach $l.OCrt.00't. and this fact alone
shows the supr. me necessity that is
upon us t . complete the fund we have
undertaken to raise.
The great importance of this work
and of raising the promised fund to
