ilLEGE DRIVE
INITIATED JIT
Anjrestaaa Campaign for IMgMMO
Enthusiastically Opened By
890 Committeemen.
Augustana college was the happy
host last night U over 200 leading
citizens of Rock Island, Moline and
the other quad cities, all assembled
to start the campaign ror tne Au
gustana gymnasium fund. The
pouring rain could not keep these
determined workers away or In any
way dampen the enthusiasm which
has been aroused to fulfill the im
mediate need of the local institu
tion of learning. R. S. Horsford of
Moline was the toastmaster and he
Introduced at once President Gus
tav Andreen of Augustana.
In his usual bappy and energetic
manner. Dr. Andreen responded
that It was utterly impossible for
him to express his complete appre
ciation and gratitude to the men
present because he had never be
fore snoken at such a meeting.
:'God bless you men," was spoken
from the depths of his heart. "Au
gustana Is 60 years old this sum
mer and we are so happy that such
a grand response has come to our
anneal for helo. This building in
which we are now assembled is to be
said for by your efforts. It is not
a dead horse but a live building
already filled during the three
years of Its existence with memor
ies of notable meetings. I want to
express my grateful appreciation to
Mayor Schriver of Rock Island and
Mayor Skinner of Moline for their
cordial response to our appeal ana
die assistance already given," said
Dr. Andreen explaining that Mayor
Skinner is here now but Mayor
Schriver was unable to attend on
account of a previous engagement.
HiB closing words were: "Can we
not wind up this campaign in three
days?" at which the speaker was
cheered to the echo.
Much Enthusiasm,
f Dr. O. A. Brandelle, president of
the Augustana synod, which is the
sponsor of the institution, was next
; called and in a few words he
brought forth the loudest cheering.
"Some of us In the Synod have a
big plan for Augustana involving
sums amounting to three quarters
of a million of dollars for meeting
the needs of this institution. You
men carry over this campaign and
I promise you that I will carry the
message to the synod in June and
big thing any be expected.- said
Dr. Brsadelle. . Is closing he said
that he waa happy over the enthu
siasm shown for Augustana- and
that he was convinced that had the
college additional buildings within
a few yean the student body could
be easily increased to three thou
sand. ,
- Yeraon Speaks.
J, L. Vernon waa called upon by
Toastmaster Hosford and he brief
ly with optimism expreaced the
thought that men so interested
would snrely go forth to reach the
stipulated snm of $8000.
The attitude of the Moline con
tingent was happily expressed by
Mayor , C. P. Skinner. "According
to the census taker we ahonld not
be expected to raise our fall quota
equal with Rock Island." at which
time his words were drowned out
by applause, "But," he continued,
this alight handicap la good tor as
for we work better under n handi
cap and we will come across in
this moat praiseworthy cause. An
gnstana belongs to us as much at
to any one else and we are send
ing more students each year. Mo
line people nse this gymnasium as
much as Rock Island.
The next speaker was a repre
sentative of Davenport, R. H. Har
ned of Davenport "Some of ns in
Davenport have already been en
listed in this proposition for Dav
enport is also a part of this under
taking. Augustana belongs also to
us and we come over to this build
ing for the great gatherings -and
we are gfod that the enthusiasm
here tonight shows that the drive
will be successful."

was introduced by Chairman Hos

popular school man. "I , visited
Cincinnati recently and was shown

Then followed the routine as

break of the war, is organized to
furnish mnsic. The college team
assigned to the Moline and Rock
Island contingents furnished the
leaders of the yeUs and cheering.
Song leaflets were distributed and
the singing - was enthusiastic at
many intervals. The friendly ri
valry between, the two contingents
from Rock Island and Moline only
added pep to the undertaking. For
the first time in the history of the
community both cities were enlist
ed side by eide with equal contin
gents of workers all ready to go
over the top for Augustana. The
friends of Angnstana last evening
witnessed something new in the
history of our local college, it
marks a new era, for the meeting
showed that from now on the quad
cities are going to give moraj and
financial support to the college that
has won their highest esteem after
establishing an enviable reputation
during its 45 years in this locality.
The next meeting of the Rock Is

dor Fletcher's resignation without

lor tne many ana trying momus k
had spent in -wrestling with- the
Mexican situation, both, in Mexico
City and Washington. -
President Wilson simply closes
the book on the past, ignores the
talk about withdrawing recogni
tion, and sends to Mexico City a
new ambassador, a .man who has
won distinction in the European
field of diplomacy and a personal
friend besides. So far as the 1920
campaign is concerned Mr. Wilson
is no more disturbed about the
Mexican question as an issue than
he was in 1916 when the Carrkal
affair served to inflame public opin
ion, and develop more acute inter
est than the subject arouses today.
To have withdrawn recognition, on
the other hand, might have been a
confession of wrong in the first
place and laid the Wilson adminis
tration open to another charge of
inconsistency in the Mexican sit
uation. Now the Wilson people i
will continue to insist that the
United States Is merely giving a
struggling republic an opportunity)
to work out the policy or self de
termination and that the five years
that have elapsed since recognition
was extended in 1915 is a brier per
iod in which to work out a recon
struction policy considering the dif
ficulties that Russia is having
after her revolution and that the
United States herself had after the
Civil war. To have made war on
Mexico would have offered a ' ser
ious contradiction to the campaign
arguments which the Democrats
plan to make pn the treaty of peace
and League of Nations. They in
tend to exhibit the league and
treaty as the protecting and stabiU
izing influence whereby the weak
are protected from the aggressions
of the strong.
In the President's Confidence.
Mr. Morgenthan is the kind of a
man whose mind goes along wltn
that of President Wilson. Besides
