Wednesday, March 6, a Gala Bay
at Fisk University.
Under the most favorable clrcum
stances and under one of the bluest of
Southern skies, Nashville recorded a
releasing event, for another valuable
asset was added to it as an education'
al center. Fisk University profited
wonderfully by the addition of a new
building to the many already located
on its campus. Nashville profited by
the concourse of prominent visitors
from all parts of the United States
who had gathered to participate In
and witness the dedication exercises
The entire day Wednesday, from 6:50
a. m. until 8 p. m., was given over
to one continued round of exercises
at this, the most notable university in
the United .States attended by Ne
groes. No school can boast of having
been put before the world in a more
impressive manner than Fisk Univer
sity. Especially did the former Jubl
lee Singers endear to the hearts o
the world the cause of Fisk. Its edu
cators and. its students have wandered
in every walk of life. Notwithstand
ing this great and wonderful achieve
ment, the school marches on to sue
cess. Not always in leaps and bounds
but with a sure certainty of advance
ment. The climax reached March 6
was the work of nearly a quarter of a
century, the foundation of which was
laid by the late Prof. Chase, who, like
the former pioneers from the North in
Negro education, dreamed a dream of
a bright future and laid deep the foun
dation upon which this generation
must build its structure.
The order of services Wednesday
was the most elaborate yet recorded
At 6:30 a. m., a special trolley ride
beginning at the Union Station, tak
ing in various portions of the city and
ending up at the University, where
breakfast was served at 7:30. At
8:45 a, m., were chapel services and
addresses of welcome with hearty re
sponse. From 9:20 to 12:15 p. m.
there were recitations which were wit
nessed by hundreds of visitors. 12
2.0 p. m. dinner was served and from
1:30 to 2:15 p. m. were recitations
and visitor's welcome. The most in
teresting part of the program began
""at 2:30 p. m., which was the dedica
tion services of the new building,
which Is a magnificent, $25,000 struc
tuxe recently erected on the site o
Bennett Field. It is a three-story
pressed brick, with white marble trim
mings and rock foundation. The build
ing is handsomely furnished through
out with electric lights, show cases
gas appliances, and, in fact, every
thing that goes to make up a comfort
able and well furnished scientific hall
Its recitation rooms, halls and show
rooms are neatly arranged, everything
. having a place and everything to its
place. The position of this building
is boldly fronting that of Jubilee Hall
commanding a magnificent site, which
seems to stand as a monument side
by side with Jubilee Hall.
It is "Chase Hall," the new building
for the Department of Applied
Sciences at Fisk University, that was
dedicated. A party of twenty-four
members of the American Missionarr
Association were present and took an
active part in the program.
The exercises were opened by the
Mozart Society Chorus, followed by In
vocation by Rev. DeWitt S. Clark, o
I Salem, Mass. After a piano solo by
illS9 a. uoDinson, rresiaeni ivierrn
made a few statements relative to the
history and purpose of the university
in which he said: "Fisk University
was founded on a basis of the brother
hood of man. It began with the idea
.that any one who could receive the
very best education and use it in the
best way should have it.
"Fisk was established shortly after
thfi close of the Civil War. It was
i opened with the grammar grades an
I those who entered, old and young, en
g tered the primary classes.- After ten
: . . y j ;iL JL U Ur
;; - tuns - ' i f
years we had a graduating class of
four members and since that time we
have had a graduating class each year.
Young men and women have gone out
to be teachers, doctors, lawyers and
in every walk of higher life.
"When the university was founded
we knew nothing of manufacturing,
but later we learned that in order to
prepare our students to make the most
of life, they should not only know
Latin and Greek, but they should be
educated along the line of manual
training and applied science. The
Slater fund has made it possible for
us to erect this new building.
"To create leaders Is our ambition."
Dedicatory Address.
Rev. Frank S. Fitch, D. D., of Buf
falo, N. Y., delivered a strong address
on "Education." Dr. Fitch said in
part: "The Bible story 'began in a
garden and ended in a metropolis
Education Is simple and complex. It
was a comparatively easy thing for
the parents to teach their children
their occupations and manners of liv
ing, but the present age demands a
greater variety of knowledge. We be
gan by learning those things which
were necessary to secure livelihood,
but now we are beginning to go deep
en: to gain a knowledge which tends
to develop the country.'
"Scientific education gives excellent
opportunities for us to know the mind
of God. God created the world and
left it. but he Is here developing it and
enricmng it. mere is now no un
friendliness between the teacher of
science and religion. Science serves
as a kind of symbolism to teach us
some truths which are taught in the
Bible. T hope there Is not a man with
in the hearing of my voice who
would become discouraged but would
use these principles to advance his
life. As I look upon the race and the
descendants of the freedman I think
all things are possible to them. We
can find no greater problem in the
South than that of your race and that
is being beautifully solved by higher
On Chase's Foundation.
Prof. W. G. Waterman said: "On an
occasion like this we look back to the
days of Frederick Chase, who for a
number of years worked in Fisk Uni
versity and in honor of whom our new
building has been named. His ideals
were big and he looked to the future
We have built our magnificent build
ing upon the foundation which he laid.
As a result of the work he did here,
we are now looking forward to the
future work which we hope to do in
this bunding. Our Idea Is to teach
pure science."
Prof. T. W. Talley, of Fisk Univer
sity, said: "I come before you to
day representing the College Depart
ment, hut before attempting to make
nn address I would like to make one
illustration, not, however, to the detri
ment of the time allotted.' I am re
minded this evening of an incident
that occurred when I was ouite a bov
attending services at a country church
house: the minister, who was the
main speaker for the day, had spoken
for two hours, at the conclusion he
announced that he had two other min
'sters whom he would like to Introduce
to the audience. The first one did not
speak lone nnd the second' said he
only wanted to mnke 'A few scattered
remarks.' I listened to him for about
nn hour and upon looking around T
aw the congregation had about scat
tered to the four points on the com
nnss. It was then that I cnught the
definition to his 'Few scattered re
marks.' So it Is not my purpose, la
dies and gentlemen, to make 'A few
pcattered remarks, this evening, for
vou have nlreadv listened to three
most excellent addresses, hut I do
want to say something in regard to
the chemistry in the scientific depart

among these were Fisk University and

Mr. Calloway spoke in glowing terms
of the Negro Buildine. whirh m
erected at a cost of $40,000. He said
that space was being taken .rnnldlv
and everything pointed to a creditable
exhibit from the Negro race. He was
sorry that Tennessee, which ousht to
be foremost in progress and develop
ment was siow to take hold. "This
slowness, however," he said, "In part
accounted lor by the change in the ad
ministration of affairs at Washineton
This change necessitated other chang
es an over tne country and this caused
a cessation In preparation.
Dr. F. G. Smith has been aDDOlnted
to look after Exposition business in
Tennessee, and Intended exhibitors
are requested to consult with him.
uield agents are now appointed In-
stead of Commissioners. This change
of men is in no way a reflection on
previous employes, but simply a
change of administration. Mr. Callo-

nioits in tne state of Georgia.
