AUGUSTANA COLLEGE, ASSET TO COMMUNITY, ASXS AID OF PUBLIC IN COMING CAMPAIGN t Angustana college will next Wed nesday laaaeh her week's campaign tor $80100, the qoota equally divid ed between Rock Island acid Moline. The support of the public in thia effort in behalf of an Institution valuable to the community both from an ideal, educational, aad pe cuniary standpoint is asked in a pamphlet Just from the press, out lining the history, needs and advan tages of the college. The bulletin, compiled by J. U Vernoa aad R. S. Hostord, cam paign organisers in Rock Island and Moline, will be pent to friends and patrons of the college in the twin-cities. It contains, besides the printed matter, seven full page views and a number of smaller cuts of the college. AutnsUaa An Asset. In regard to community benefits derived from the location of the college. It says: "The influences which go forth from a Christian in stitution of learning for civic ad vancement and improvement are al ways great. This asset, the most important one, cannot be computed in dollars and cents. ) "The college, however, is also a pecuniary -asset to the community where it Is located. "The annual income of Augustan college consists of tuitions (over $5,000). of interest on funds (al most $25,000), of gifts from con gregations throughout the country (over $25,000). of income from the dining hall, fees, etc, the whole sum amounting to more than 1100,- 000. , , : "The annual expenses of Angus- Una are about $120,000, Out of this budget are paid the teachers' salaries, the janitors, the upkeep and repairs of the building, coal, water, electricity, insurance, - the dining hall, in a word the general running expeasee of the whole in stitution. This money, every cent of it, then flows in innumerable rills into the ordinary business channels of the community. "Of the 71C students who attend ed Augustaaa college last year. more than half had their homes in other places than Rock Island and Moline; some of them came from the seaboard. The last cata log shows that there were atudents from the following states: Ala bama. California, Colorado, Con necticut, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Massachusetts, Mich lean, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebras ka, North Dakota, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Is land, South Dakota, Tennessee,' Texas, Washington, Wisconsin, Wyoming. Of foreign countries, the following are represented : Can ada, India, Sweden. "Furthermore, many of the stu dents living in the cities have stay ed at home because there was an opportunity of pursuing the studies of their' choice at the home college; j otherwise they would have gee elsewhere aad spent their money. "These atadeata spend oa aa average more than flM a year oat- aide their immediate college tees. At this low estimate, the total spent by them la the community would be about $70 000. "The Aegustana book concern is located here because of the pres ence of the college. Its salary bud get alone is over $ 50,000 annually aad ail of thia amount la spent at home.. "Adding these rams, we tnd that about $240,000 are speat every year in the home "cities by the complex we call Augustaaa. If in addition we count the great festivities aad other features, this sum will be materially Increased. Aagnstana is indeed an asset to the home towns." Gymnasium a Qaad-City Center.
