It ls only twenty-five years since the legislature ol" South Carolina paused the Act ol* Acceptation winch brought CICIIIKOII College into being. In Hutt short life Clciniioil has grown to be u linty young giant anion g col leges. There has been little time for maturing,-the lirst quarter-cen tury has been an age of growth. Neces sity, lin:! of all. hail lo be met, now comes the lime for maturing and per fecting. The next decade will see fut Iber routine academic necessities provided Sor, hut il will see the stress laid upon Hie aesthetic ami spiritual sitie of the coll?ge and its student life. The future of Clemson College ten year:; frcni now ls bul the writer's vis ion of what he thinks should be. It is un much thc expressiop of a hope as' a belief, because between him and the fulfillment of his vision lie Hie vicissi tudes of fiuauciul support, the unex pected demands that may come upon that support, and-a board of trustees, who equally sincere, may differ with the president of thc college in his judgment as to what should next be ?lone in the development of the insti tution. A period nf ten years has been pur posely selected ao as to avoid making .predictions too specific. For obvious reasons, all that is expected to occur in thu period of time selected bas not oten cnrouicled. Likewise, guesses as to what may happen have been omitted. In most cases the predic tions are based on present or discern ible necessities that will make the things predicted inevitable. To at tempt to enumerate minor changes and improvements would bc to go un necessarily into detail, and make this article too long. Let us ?-first consider the visible changes and additions that a graduate of this year will see when he visits his Alma Mater in 1924. Between the Textile Department and the store will stand a $60.000 gymnasium, with an athletic field, large enough to accommodate several regiments, or a half dozen baseball or football teams, stretching to the west towards thc beef cattle barn. Forty thousand yards of earth will have been moved to level up the ravine .over which tho athletic grounds will Ho. Thc hillside oppo.-lte the churches will be sloped down to the athletic field anti cet in grass. Tho grand stands will be embedded In the hill side behind the Textile building, and the spectators will face toward Uie Episcopal and Methodist churches. The present athletic field will be leveled with the earth obtained by re moving the .segment of thc hill on the hotel .-ide of tho Held, and it wilt bc converted Into .a formal garden of great beauty. Tho space below the traek will br made into a sunken gar den. lt will bc bounded by a stone wall five or nix feet high opposite Robertson's store, with massive col umns on cat ii aide of the road forming an entrance to the eoltege grounds. The bill In front df tho Textile school will bo graded off to supply tho earth foi: the high* terruco in iront of tho gymnarium. Thia terrace .wilt have stops in front leading down to thc sunken gard oh. Th? road that now crpsses Just behind thc Textile building will bo re-located and will cross Ju3t behind the gymnasium. A stone wall will skirt thc base of thc hotel bill. Near Hat racha No. 3 will stand , a $75,000 V. M. C. A. building devoted to the'religious and social .lifo of the i tudentH. Tb? tiustee. house will- bo torn down to open up a view of Hie mansion -from tho campus, and to got lt out from In front of tho V. M. C. A. buildings and a "John C.

The Kxperlment Station greenhouse now in the middle ot tho campus, wil) be located in connection with a $30,000 horticultural building-that will occu py ?hi site , on which Col.

O O O' O O tl O OOOOOO?OO M COLLEtiE OKta NIDATION li UOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO (Issue ??f February 28. Hill.) When a business lias grown to Brent ? !/.<'. il is nu longer possible for one mau to know or attend to all its de tail:.. Organisation becomes neces sary. The work must lie sub-divided, und responsibilit y delegated lo ot hera. With delegated responsibilities must go commensurate power. Ability to ( booi e wisely I he men who ure to fill the places of responsibility is thc most Important factor in successful organ ization, l'or un organization is but n machine whoso efficiency depends upon tho quality of the men who operate it. Good organization demands ll) a cleat linc of demarcation between leg islative anti executive functions; tl!J locution of responsibility upon a com paratively few individuals and tho clothing of these individuals willi the ! ncecKsary power and prestige to make possible the enforcement nf discipline for eiiieiency; (3) orderly procedure and recognition of the U'-xt in rank ! from the top to the bottom of the or ganization. The unproved form of business or ganization places one individual, the president, between the legislative body, usually a board of directors, and Hie working forces of the organi zation. The hoard of directors lays down the policy for thc business. They elect the president to he their execu tive agent, they pass upon his plans for the conduct ot the business, but do not as a rule seek themselves to muke plans for obtaining the results which they demand. The president is ex pected to organize the business so as to get the largest results with the greatest profit. To him is left largely the selection of his administrative sub ordinates, each of whom in tum t?* given the right to plan thc work of his department, subject to tue presluem a approval. These officers are responsi ble to the president, and the president to the board of directors, the direc tors.to the stockholders. The above diagram shows clearly how these general business principles arc applied in the organization of Clemson College. , The board of trustees, (correspond ing to a board of directors) is the governing body of thc " Institution. This board makes laws for the gov ernment of .tho college, Lsys down its general policies, selecta its president and then passes upon plans and ap pointments of the president. The board ls a legislative and not an cX- i ecutlve body, and hence does not ac tually take a hand in the operation of the college. The president ls responsible to the board of trustees for the successful management of the institution and the attainment of thc cnd3 sought by the j board. He is expected to prepare the plans necessary to the successful op eration of the. college, submitting these plans for thc board's action. It is not to bo expected that the trustees who aro busy men in other lines and not experts in Hie technique of Col lege management, should have to initi ate the plans for tho operation and development of the institution. Their function is lo pas*'.-upon thc plans made by those who aro employed for thal purpose. ? Since tho president ls to bo-held respondido for results, he ia given a large share lu the selection of hir associates, and especially of those who make jip his cabinet,-that, ls, thc heads ,of the depart monta. Theoretically, In thc perfect organi zation, the president should have lit tle or no active part in routine opera tion. His time and thought should bo given to planning for future develop ments. In selecting men for tho va rieos placen which from time to time become vacant, in seeing that the work, ar planned la properly carried out, in consulting with hiu colleagues, and an meeting emergencies that con tinually arise In every large business. Whenever thc president dcv(soQ and perfeet:t a new system, this Bbot 1 be turned over to. ot hera to operate, .We ho lu nm his attention to something else. Tho directors, who in turn are held responsible for tho success of theirre r.pectlve . departments, are .given a voice in the selection of their division hoads, and tho, division heads a voice In tho selection of their assistante. Tho directors of departments should hot be-so laden down with routine work as to have no time to plan for growth and acceleration. ; / Tho division of- a department is the, unit. Tho plans of tho division come, to tho president through the directors of the departments. 4 Tho board In dealing with tho de partments does so through the proc? dent, and the president in dealing with tho .divisions' docs. BO through thc di rectora. Thia ls Ute official method of handling all business. . - . . ? v Q O O o o ,o 0 0 0 0 0 0 o O O o o o o o COLLEGE FINANCES 6 ? v - . . .. ,'., o ooooooooooooooooooo (Issue of March 7. 1314.)

While many kno.v how much the college receives, few take the trquhio to inquire how it is spent.

To build a college and a city, as well as to operate a college with an enrollment of 446 tho first session, was the task that confronted the trus tees and officers of this institution ut its beginning twenty-one years ago.

Thc work as inaugurated on a -niall scale, met with little holp or sympa thy, and much opposition, from the people of the counties In which il was begun,-now- the people aro. demand ing that the legislature appropriate $'10,000 to carry on the work at a more rapid rato than ls possible with the funds at the disposal or the col lege.

V. li 4 SHORT HISTORY OF FORT HILL The Ancient Home of tho Cal houris-Now thc Seat of Clemson College Tue ei.tnle upon which Clcincon Col-1 leno ls buln was known as (he "Kort Hill Place." In onler to understand clearly the following historical out Ilm-, one should read first Col. Simpson's bio graphical sketch of Mr. Clemson ap pearing In this Issue of The Tiger. From Hits sketch lt will be remcm-' bercd that long before, the war Mr. I Clemson had married Senator Cal houn's . oldest daughter. Anna Marla ' Two children rosulled from this mar-j rlage. u daughter Floride, who be came Mrs. Gideon Ijee, of New York,! ard u son, John Calhoun Clemson, who after nerving us a lieutenant In the I Confederate army during the war. was' killed In a collision on thc Hine Ridge Railroad. Mr. and Mrs. Gideon Kee had one child. a daughter, Floride Isabelle. I who married her cousin. Mr. Andrew | Calhoun, now of Greenville. Willi litis preliminary statement in regard to Mr. Clemson's family and immediate descendants, let us turu to a consideration of the Fort Hill ertate. This estate ls said to have been given to Senator John C Calhoun 1 by his wife's brothers In 1854 Mr. ' Calhoun having died in 18&0, Mrs. Cal- 1 bonn sold the property and negroes to her son, Andrew P. Calhoun, laking in pnrt payment his bond and mort gage for $40,?00. When she died In 1866, this debt not having been paid, she willed three-fourths of It to her ( daughter, Mrs. Clemson, and one fou rt h to her grundduughter, Mrs.1 Oldeun I^ee of New York. Referring tot her legacy to Mrs. clemson. Mrs. Cal- ' houn in her will uses these words: . "to dispose of tills bequest of throo fonrths of said bond and mortgage debt as she pleases." These words are very significant in light of after events to be described. .Shortly after her motber's death. Mrs. CleniBon after much cosily liti gation which had begun in 1856, fore closed the mortgage against her brother, Andrew P. Calhoun. The place was put up ut public auction in Walhalla January 1st, 1S72, and was bid in by Mr. Clemson acting as trus tee for his wifo and. daughter. The price paid was $15,000. The war had freed the slaveB and this figure was considered, a fair valuation for prop erty in that day. In certain court re- . cords it is Hinted that Mrs Clemson paid out of his private ronds $6.964.43 to satisfy legal costs and other obli gations upon Hie catato, which for HO long had been lu litigation. In November 1871} a division of the estate was made botweon Mrs. Clem no and her grandnughter. Miss Fib- ' ride Isabella Lee, whose mother had died In 187?. Miss Lee's fourth was later bought by the college for $10, 000., ( Mrs. Clemson died In September 1875. leaving a will tn which she be queathed her property to her husband "absolutely fee simple" and appoint ing him the executor o? the.will. i At this point let us pause lo unto Mr. Clemson's interest in agricultural education. He was a member of the new nearly century old "Pendleton Farmers' Society" and In 1868 was elected Rn president. In 1866 Mr. Clemson waa cha i rum u of, a copimlttee consisting of h i ni gulf. Hon. R. E. Simp son and Col. W. A. Hayne, to appeal to their fellow citizens for I "Aid to found un Institution for educating our people In the sciences, to the end that our agri culture may be Improved, our worn..and impoverished soils he recuperated, and thc great natural resources of the south developed." The appeal above referred to was written by Mr. W. H. TrcBcott, and closes with these words: "Leitern and .contributions to be directed to the Hon. Thomas G. Clemson. LL. D., chairman of trie committee. Pendleton. Anderson district. South Carolina." ' gain in the minutes of the same j Bi clety, of which ho was elected preal Watklns. R. N. Watkins. D. W. Watkins, T. G.
