The sixty-eiglith annual session of St. Augus
tine’s College was officially inaugurated with open
ing services in the chapel yesterday morning,
l^ishop Edwin A. Penick, the principal speaker,
was presented by Rev. Edgar H. Goold, the presi
dent of the College.
In an address that held the attention of old and
now students alike Bishop Penick pointed out that
the aim of Christian education was the deyelop-
naent of all the worthy aspects of the indi\idual,
physically, mentally and spiritually. “Christian
education has as its purpose not the development
of athletes, hut athletes plus; not the development
of scholars, but scholars plus,” the Bishop sai .
Speaking of the intellectual side of college life, be
said that the aim of the church school should not
be the inculcation of sectarian propaganda, but
rather the promotion of the search for trut ,
wherever it might lead. In closing, the Bishop
stressed the value and utility of the^ ideals ^ and
traditions of Christian educational institutions.
Among the visitors present who spoke ^\ords o
greeting were: Dr. Milton A. Barber, rector of
Christ Church, and Eev. Theodore Partrick, rec
tor of the Church of the Good Shepherd, both
members of our Board of Trustees; and
George A. Eisher, rector of St. Ambrose’s Church.
President Goold announced that a larger pro
portion of the students than usual had arrived
in time for the opening exercises.

The Community Center
On November 16th, the Choral Club of the Col
lege, under the direction of Prof. L. T. Caldwell,
presented the musical drama “Jephthah,” prev
iously staged with great success as a feature of
Commencement Week. This revival was for the
benefit of the Tuttle Community Center. The
results both artistically and financially were grati
fying. We reprint from the program note:
“This entertainment is for the benefit of the
Tuttle Community Center, which is just around
the corner from where you are sitting, at 310
North Tarboro Road. It was established by the
Rev. and Mrs. A. B. Hunter, for the sake of the
neighborhood and for the training value to the
Tuttle School.
The aim of the Center is to turn the leisure
time of children and of adults into wholesome play
and creative activity. The sixteen clubs are
planned for all ages, carrying out the principles
of recreation and personal development in hand
craft, music, dramatics, athletics and social
There is development of the love of the beauti
ful, and of appreciation for all useful and gra
cious things, courtesy and service. Interests are
roused and directed. Understanding is strength
ened of the privileges as well as the responsibili
ties of life in the home, the church, the school
and the community.
October’s attendance on playground and at clubs
was nearly 2,000. Does this seem a worthy pro
ject to help the Tuttle School to carry on ?”
Twenty-two states and thirty dioceses from
Massachusetts to Colorado and from Michigan to
Texas, are represented in this year’s student body.
There are also students from Canada, the British
West Indies, and the Virgin Islands. More young
men than young women are enrolled in the Col
lege Department.
