HAS GROWN RAPIDLY Equipment Is Modern and Location Ideal Educational Standing High. The Lindenwood College for Women, located at St. Charles, Mo., Is the oldest institution of its kind west of the Mississippi River. In the earlier part of the past century Major George C. Sibley of the United States Army, with his wife, Mary Easton Sibley, were stationed in the northeastern part of the state near St. Charles. As early as 1820 to 182S the subject of education was upon their hearts and 120 acres of land acquired was given by Mrs. Sibley to establish a school for the higher education of joung ladies. In 1831 the school was formally open ed in a log house. Students came from all parts of the country to Lin denwood, which was so named by its founders on account of the forest of linden trees in which it was located. Growth of College. The college continued to grow until a new dormitory was needed. In 1869 a new building, known as Sibley Hall, was ded-cated. In 1881 and 1886 ad ditions were made to Sibley Hall, which made it the large structure it is today. The present college campus contains many new buildings erected in recent years, the latest being But ler Hall, which was dedicated February 18, 1915. This building is pronounced by school men as the finest dormitory for a women's college in the south west. The buildings on the campus today are Sibley, Jubilee and Butler dormitories, a Conservatory of Music, Science Hall. Art Pottery, Dean's Home, central heating plant, gym nasium and natatorium in connection with Butler Hall. The most modern plumbing is to ho found in all the dormitories. Jubi lee and Butler Hall have hot and cold running water in each room. Tub and shower baths are furnished for all the students. In its dormitory accommo dation few colleges offer equal ad vantages.

Tennis courts and volley ball courts are in constant use in reasonable weather. A training instructor is employed for outdoor sports and an athletic in structor for gymnasium. A swimming teacher is in charge of the swimming pool. The health conditions are most ad mirable. The college is situated at the highest point in St Charles and Is free from malarial conditions. Sani tary conditions are ideal. The new water mains stretched across the campus by the City of St. Charles give an abundant supply of water for all purposes. Drinking water is furnished from a double sys tem of filtration. Educational Standing. The college affords something more than physical advantages.
