a great blunder, to say the least of

''Washington, Oct. 2. Lieutenant
Donald H. Morrison, who was killed
Monday in the explosion aboard the
torpedo boat destroyer Walke, at
Newport, met death on the day a
letter was addressed to him by the
acting secretary of the navy, com

jumping overboard from the Walke

born in Missouri twenty-five years
ago, and after .attending Washing
ton school, was appointed to the
naval academy in 1902. He has been
on duty on the Walke since last June.
The explosion of the forward end of
the port turbine and the steam chest
on the torpedo boat instantly killed
Lieut. Morrison, the chief engineer,
and wounded eight others, two of
whom, J. W. Cumpf and H. L. Wil
der, both machinists' mates 'of the
first class, died last night on the
hospital ship Solace.

Half Dozen Couples Already
Preparing for Early
Before The Leaves Are Gone
, Many Hearts Will Be Made
There are indications that this will
be a busy month for Cupid. Nearly
half a dozen city couples are already
mentioned as having set the time for
being united in marriage. The
brides-to-be are all prominent in so
ciety circles while the prospective
grooms are well known in business
and one of them iV a member of one
of the professions. Gossip has it
that the nuptials of two of the to-be-brides
are so near at hand that
they will go to Louisville in ,u few
days to arrange for thei trousseaus.
It is quite evident that Cupid. . has de
termined to get busy now that his
vacation is over and before the trees
have shed their dead foliage many
hearts will be made happy at Hy
men's altar.
The month started off by license
being- issued to James C. Samples
and Miss Jeannette Major cn the
first day of the month.

With Fine Prospects Of a Most
Successful Ses
Impressive Exercises Marked
the Opening Session Tues
day Morning.
McLean College began Tuesday
morning the sixty-fourth annual ses
sion. The day was perfect as to
weather and the representatives of
the college and community who as
sembled in the new Rash building
were numerous and full of happy
enthusiasm. President Kuykendall
and Prof. H. Clay Smith were joint
ly in charge of the exercises. Both
made felicitous talks. Mrs. Foster
was the leader of the music and Mis9
Fallansby who has, fir3t and last,
hern for years a member of the Mc
Lean faculty, whs again in her old
place u the organ. Short and ap
propriate uduresses were made by
Mr. Oscar Wright, Mr. T. L. Met
calfe, Mr. G. L. Campbell, Mrs.
Kate Young. Prof. Foster, Rev. T.
T. Roberts and Rev. H. D. Smith.
Prof. Smith read a portion of scrip
ture and commented upon it in his
own happy way and Secretary
Roberts led in prayer. The closing
prayer was made by Rev. H. D.
The.new teachers on the platform
Tuesday were Mrs. R. A. Field,
! teacher of Domestic Science, Mis3
Morton, Lady Principal; Miss Mi'
dred Payne, Teacher of Art. and
Miss Corinne Parent, Teacher of
The new building exceeds in its
beauty and convenience the expecta
tions of many sanguine friends of
the fine old school. It is one of the
most modern of school buildings,
Especially noteworthy and very sur
prising is the stage of progress
reached in so short a time in the
construction of this great house. In
deed more rooms of all sorts are
ready for occupancy than the old
Rash Hall contained. The rooms
which remain unfinished, while very
desirable for the purpose of the en
larged program which the college
has adopted are not at all necessary
to the satisfactory conduct of the
fall term. However, it is expected
that the workmen will, be able to
leave the premises entirely within a
few days.
Great credit is due many persons
for this astounding recovery of an
historic institution from a great
calamity. This recovery is taken as
an augury of good to her, a promise
of continued and increasing power
in her fair field of Christian culture.
Perhaps never before in vheir long
and splendid commercial career have
The Forbes Manufacturing Company
displayed such consideration and
energy as they have invested in this,
noble structure with which anew
the college hill is crowned.
Classification of pupils was in pro
gress yesterday and regular work
will be the order from now on.
