Contest in Oratory
The contest for the medal in orato
j ry is always an occasion of much in|
tsrest and this year the contest was
j unusually fine. It was held at the
; opera house on Monday evening- and
i there was a very large audience to
; hear the young speakers. The conjtcctants
were selected from the memj
bers of the junior class. In the old
| days when the classes were small the
j entire clars had to enter the contest
as part of the course, and then even
;n the earlier days the contest was
open to all the college classes and
;the entry wa<> a voluntary matter.

; We have seen a comesx in which an
j members of all four of tne college
: classcs were in the battle. This year
| there were only eight as follows:
Frank P. Hill of Newberry spoke
! on '"The Honor of America?Yet
j Unstained."
; J. G. Park of Rockwell, N. C.,
| R. W. Bost of Rockwell, N. C.,
"The Flag of Destiny."
{ 'Drum Beats of the Dawn."

X. C., "The Unconquered Foe."
| Charles M. Etheredge, Aiken, "The
Contagion of the Gown."
: Victor Dewey Derrick, Leesville,
"Weighed in the Baiance."
Mr. McCain won first place with
. honorable mention of'Mr. Clarkson.

clainiers' contest by the sophomore^.

Frank Lever and Cyp Efird and
| Muller Kreps were here for the
bcird meeting on Monday, but they
are so busy now that they not remain
over for the commencement.
We should say Hon. A. Frank Lever,
Judge C. M. Efird and Dr. M. 0. J.
Kreps so that the younger people
may know to whom we refer.
j Somehow we feel that the commencement
occasion should cover at
f least three days instead of two. Why,

and had more time for the finer
j things of life and. the things which

And we believe they got along bet:
ter. Of course we did not travel in
i autos, but we got there just the same.
In this day every one is in a .hurry,
i but so far as we can observe very little
that is really worth while is
j accomplished. We well remember
j that on Saturday Col. Thos. W. Hoii
Iowp.v and Dr. Jacob Hawkins. Rev,
0. P. Boozer, Maj. P. E. Wise, Captain
John C. Seegers, and Dr. S. T.
Hallman, and many others would be
seen on the streets and at the hotel
and every one could very easily guess
that commecement was coming, and
in fact was here. Another faithful
one was Rev. J. A. Sligh. He never
missed a commencement. But in
those days the town was smaller anc
; may be Newberry college was bigger
: that is bigger in the eyes of the
friends of those days. It "vvas the

The Board of Trustees,
Newberry College.
I The college session of 1121-1922
began on September :23rd, 1921.
i Three new professors began their
! service in the faculty on the opening
day: Rev. R. A. Goodman assumed
the professorship of Bible and rhrisJtiar.
Ethics; Prof. G. P. Voigt, of
Modern Languages and Literature;
j and Prcf. F. D. " MacLean became
j Physical Director and Associate Pro
fersor of English. These gentlemen
jat once entered fully into the life and
work of the college, and have labored
I with conspicuous success, each in his
; cat. department and in the general
. work of the college.
: L'r.der authority given by the
standing committee the faculty secured
the assistance of the following
students: R. 0. Derrick and C. W.
, McCartha, laboratory instructors; K.
jW. Kinard, instructor in mathematics;
L. E. Blackweldei(, instructor in
English; Geo. C..Borts, instructor in
.Spanish; A. E. Davies, instructor in
igymnasium; D. V. Beetle, V. R. EleaIzer
and R. B. Eleas;er, gymnasium assistants.
; i? ' *
j 'iheie men were paid from six to
| eighteen dollars a month. Each did
.well the work required of him, and
| the college is fortunate in having in
its student body men who can renj
der such service. ;
| And yet, how we must regret that
our financial resources are so small
! that we must call upon many of the
best and brightest of our students to
take valuable time from their regular
academic work and give it with very
: little remuneration in this service to
. t
: their college.
The enrollment of students this
year totals 263: 40 seniors, ,53 juniors,
64 sophomores, 72 freshmen,
o0 sub-freshmen and 4 post-graduates.
The attendance to this date
, has dropped only about 9 per cent.
,;In deportment, class-room work, and
: college spirit the record of the stu,
dent body has bcen; admirable,
j Beginning on July 11th, 1921, and
'continuing for six weeks, a summer
school for teachers, for conditioned
I college studepts and for applicants
for the freshman class was neia oy
| Newberry and Summerland colleges
, at Newberry college. The instruc|
tors were chosen from the faculties
of thetse colleges. The trustees were
I not asked to assume any financial
! obligations for the summer school.
[ : The school was a success. S2 stud'
j ents were in attendance and the
I; quality of work done was high.
! The faculty of Newberry college
ka?ks permission to conduct such a
, school again this year to begin July
11 Oth. It asks no financial assistance,
- :
r! but asks your approval and moral
j: support. The faculty has selected
, | Prof. Jas. C. Kinard director of the
. j school, and asks the board to approve
. i this.
, i Since the last meeting of the board
Month has claimed one of its most
J useful and distinguished members.
. Hon. Geo. S. Mower, of Newberry,
j jS. C., who had been a member of the
| board for forty years and for many
; years its vice-president, and chairman
2'of the standing committee, died July
. i 25th, 1921. I am sure the board
j\ will wish to express by formal resolution
its recognition of the great
f1 service rendered tfhe college by Mr.
?! Mower and the ereat loss cuffered in
-| his lamented death.

is worthy of special mention. Our
debating teams won in the triangular J
debate with Woffor'd and Presbyteri- j

Baptist university of Oklahoma. Our
speaker won honorable mention in

colleges of this state.

' difficult problem this year. The
collections for .tuition, fees and
interest on . endowment have been
slow and incomplete. Some who owe
the college have been unable to pay;
many have been apparently indifferent
to their obligations. I ask the
board to express its judgment as to
the policy of the college in the collection
of tuition and fees,?shall the
! . '
college insist upon prompt and full
payment, and drop tlfe student who
:!does not comply; or shall it continue'
] the policy of leniency that has pre- J
vailed for many years? The many
factors involved make the problem
decidedly complex. But I think the
, time has come when the policy of the
| college in this matter must be definitely
stated. I
In December, 1921, Dr. Trevor Ar!
nette, representing the General Edu!
cation board, visited the college. He
< expressed admiration of the remarkable
work the college is doing in
spite of its deliciencies in room
j equipment and teaching force. Up-'
on the recommendation of Dr. Ar-'
nctte the General Education board
appropriated $5,000 to help pay salaries
for this year. This saved us
from a dangerous deficit in our cur-1
rent expenses account. * j

The athletics committee of the'
faculty and the athletics commi'ttee,
of the Newberry County College club
together out on a campaign for the
jsale of season tickets good for all
athletics events on the campus for
one year, beginning April 1st. This
effort was approved by the standing
..'committee. It was the hope of the
joint committee to realize from the
;sale of tickets funds sufficient first,
to finance the athletics of the college;
| second, to show a balance sufficient
j to justify the board in undertaking
. | the erection of a new $25,000 gym,

hut the first objective, the fin,
aneing of athletics, was accomplished
jand enough above this secured to
grade and equip a new athletics field,
j This will cos>t about $2,000. I .ask the
; board to give to the committees namJ
cd above authority to proceed at once
j with this work.

money for the gymnasium. I recom-!1
mend that the board instruct the !i

at once to secure $25,000 in cash and

izens of the town, and near.by com-;
muities for this purpose, and to be-;1

as possible. At the meeting on June j1

can be successfully carried out.

ommend that the standing commit-,
tee be instructed then out of such'
funds as may be available,?and the.;
cost will be small,?to fit the main!'
