Mounfain Association CHURCH ENDOWED Mountam Association Gardner-Webb has a very small endowment and a very dismal out look for any great in crease that would meet the needs. The churches are our endowment! They have stood with the college through the years, they are increasing their gifts to the college as they see the work, and they will continue to make it possible for the college to train leaders and follow ers for this section and for the world. We con stantly thank God for the churches, for their noble pastors, and for the ENROLLMENT AT CAPACITY NOW EXPANSION FUND NEARS $300,000 The memorial campaign for the expansion fund of Gard ner-Webb College is now ap proaching the goal of $300,- 000.00 set for February 1, 1945.
