COLLEGE OPENING (Raleigh N'ewa and Observer) The sixty-seventh academic year of St. Augus tine’s was inaugurated on September 28th with an opening service in the college chapel. The president. Rev. Edgar H. Goold, conducted the service and pi’esented the president of the Board of Trustees, the Rt. Rev. Edwin A. Penick, D.D., Bishop of North Carolina, who greeted the staff and students in a short but impressive address. Other trustees who spoke a word of greeting were Dr. Milton A. Barber, Rector of Christ Church, and Rev. Theodore Partrick, Jr., of the Church of the Good Shepherd. Among other visi tors were Rev. Harvey A. Cox, Lieut. Lawrence \.. Oxley and Rev. Thomas S. Clarkson, all of Raleigh. All the speakers made mention of the loss of the oldest and best friends of St. Augus tine’s, the late president of the board of trustees, Bishop Joseph B. Cheshire, and the late honorary president of the College, Dr. B. Hunter, both of whom the opening exercises almost invariably attracted. For the first time St. Augustine’s will not have a high school department. Instead there is a col lege preparatory department open to those who have completed two years of work in an accredited high school. The roster of students present suggests the growing latitude of the institution’s influence. Students are registered from as far away as Texas, Connecticut, Michigan, Quebec and the Virgin Islands. Participating in the opening exercises were the staff and students of St. Agnes Hospital and Training School for Nurses, which operates the entire year, and the Bishop Tuttle School for Keligious and Social Workers, which began classes last week. Both of the latter institutions are located on the campus and are connected with St. Augustine’s College.
