Hint of McMurry College, Abilene was recently pre sented, in behalf of the college, wi'h one of the most remarkable libraries ever compiled. Hundreds of Volumes are comnris- id in this library, whu h i uniq ie , not only fer its ce.n nts but for its : compositiiin. , It is a libraiy of ilippings clip pings from magazines, newspapers, pamphlets and every other prin'-d ' niediuiu of expressieen. j '1 he gift was from Jaine A.

Short Sermon, ( hi'lclien's He ading, Humor, Comic Picture, Poems, tipei lal. War Top ics, Newspapers and the various h .Iidays and auiversaries. Everything under the sun has a place in this library. Nothing has es aped the loving scissors and pa.de pot of Mr. Lowry, whose literary taste is far above the average. He roved through newspapers and mag azines, seeking for the best works of literature and when he found something which his judgment pro- i nounced good, he would clip it out and later paste it into some book kept for the purpose. As the years passed the number of these volumes grew, until it would require a good sized t rue k to handle the library now. It would take a solid month of examination to appraise this library at its real worth. No casual inspec tion could give one a fitting appre ciation of its immensity and its uni queness. Despite failing eyesight, Mr. Iwry kept at his task day after day and niirht after night, building up with loving rare this monument to his literary taste and discernment. Will Bet Catalotuad "When McMurry College gets started I am going to have the Low ry library classified and catalogued" said IVrsldent Hunt recently, in speaking of the gift.
