Messrs. Holland and Walter

men, intellectually, morally and

University of North Carolina.
They are fully competent to pre

fine scholarship, their fine charac

their lofty ideals are bound to in

their charge. They have both had
experience in teaching, and their
union in one school would produce
a combination .difficult to surpass.
Any town in North Carolina would
be fortunate to possess such a
school. Geo. T. Winston,
