tablishment of a single school In this
community, and men of both faculties
and both governing bodies hat'- ear?
nestly applb d tbem?elves to the task of
determining a basis mutually accept
Sble to the two institutions, upon which
they tan be brought together.
"In taking up HM task they have
put aside every personal . onsideration.
and hav.- considered onlv the good to
be accomplished to the profession at

"When this merger Is brought about,
the community will .iwe a debt to the
gentlemen who. without regard to
personal benefits, have worked for the
general good. It Is expected that the

plants of the two separate colleges,
and mt the HVsnsrlnl and Virginia Iloa

largest school for medical training and
