The linancial stability of tliu Institution contimu's to he
a matt('r of grave concern as the annual income is iiiade-
(luate for the needs of the collejie. A decrease of about
lifty per cent in llie annual appropriation from Cliurch
sources is larjiel.v res]K)usihle for this situation. A sub
stantial endowment or greatly increased income from
Church sources, or both, are ne('ded to enable the collOf;e
to function ]>ro])erly. It will be i-emembered that a survey
of our financial ne(‘ds male last year indicated that there
shoidd b(> an additional annual income of at least !|!2r),(IO(l
and that api)roximately .flOO.OOO is ne(‘ded for repairs,
reni'wals, e(pupment and additional buildin};s. Wi> feel
keeidy that St. Au;;ustine's Collefje, as oiir Church College
for Xesro Youth, deserves uun-e ad(‘(|uate suppoi-t than it
is rcK'eivinf; today. We earuc'sti.v hope that those in chai'f;e
of the policy and strates.v of cmr National (’liurch will take
means to renu'dy this situation before it is too late.

(Jraduates from the Training School continue to be called

This school fir 'I'raining Church Workers in Iteligious
EdnciUion and Social Service n'ceives its chief support
Iroin th(> I'nited Thank (HTc'ring of the National Woman's
Auxillar.v, and in Its administration St. Augustine’s is as
sisted by an Advisory Committee apjiointed by the National
Coiuicll. 'I'he graduate's are widely scatt('red throughout
the country and are engaged in various types of 'hurch
or conununity work. In an effort to assist in building up
our .\egro Church Work in a definite way, it has been
decided to place gri'ater emphasis in the curriculum on
the training for leadership in the field of Religious Educa

candidates for this type of training, and iii the ('hurch i>osi-
tions and opiK)rtunities will he provided tor them on their
graduation. A widening interest in the development of our
Negro C'hurch Work would stimulate this ideal.
In conclusion let me expres.s the hope that the best part
of the History of St. Augustine's is not behind but rather
ahead of her. and that the St. Augustine’s of the future
will increasingl.v realize the ideals of her f(mnders and the

NOTES FROM THE CAMPUS
The annual St. Augustine's Week, an event which for
several years has taken place early in May, has as its pur
pose the in’omotion of more knowledge of and interest in St.
Augustine's on the part of the students and staff. Attenti(m
is turned to what each one may do to aid in the lU'ogress of
our institution. This year the program culminated in an
assembly in which several stutlents siK)ke. 'I'he chief ad
dress was made b.v Cecil N. Coble, ’•>•'). local business man
and member of the college preparatory teaching staff. We

activities, enrich and enlarge the student body of mr alma

materially by putting forth a special effort to inform the
world of the many worth-while activities on our campus.
One story that should he of value in drawing students hither,
and one that thrills me each time I think of it, is that of a
minister in Italy, thousands of miles from his native home,
collecting old books. His collection of old hooks has brought
not only to St. Augustine's students, but to people in the city
of Raleigh and various parts of the State outstanding and
modern library facilities. That minister was lume other
than our own beloved Dr. A. 15. Hunter. In all of his under
takings here at St. Augustine's College we see the gloricms.
