Never has a movement received
such loyal support from the college
community and village as this. All
are heartily co-operating- and many
are making- every sacrifice to insure
its erection. As a result, over $4,000
has already been pledged and the
canvass is not yet finished.

ing of the students and townspeo
ple was held in the college chapel.
After a short introductory service,
Mr. Home, President of the Asso
ciation, very ably and forcibly pre-
sented the question in behalf of the
Association and student body. He
said the building- was needed to
give greater prominence to the
Christian work among the students;
to give it permanence; to make the
Association more popular; to give it
more dignity in the minds of all; to
unify the Christian forces in the col
lege; to broaden the scope of the As
sociation work; to give the students
Mr. Bristol, Chairman of the
committee, briefly outlined the plan
of the prospective building as it had
been talked over in the committee.
There would be a Reading- Room,
well stocked with the leading pa
pers, periodicals and magazines; co
sy parlors where the students
might gathecaround the piano and
sing college or Gospel songs and
occasionally have a reception to get
better 'acquainted with each other
and with the ladies of the town ; a
social room where chess and check
ers and other games would furnish
an occasional hour's diversion ; an
assembly room suited . to the even-
ing prayer meeting; committee
rooms, and rooms set apart for the
various Bible Classes ; a hall with a
seating capacity of five or six hun
dred separated from some of these
other rooms by rolling doors so that
the whole floor could be thrown into

Alumni our campus could soon boast
of the finest College Association
building in the South.
Dr. A. B. Rohersqn, for the towns
people, spoke of the value of the
Association to the college and com
munity expressed in one way by the
revival held under its auspices by
Mr. Pearson. He said the churches
as well as the student bodjr had
been helped and stimulated to great
Mr. Coulter, spoke of the growing
power of the Association in col
leges. At present there are over
five hundred college associations
with over thirty thousand members.
He mentioned the Association build
ings that had been erected in other
Southern colleges smaller than this,
and of the great influence they have
exerted on the religious life of the
students at these institutions.
Surely this University can do as

Over $2,500 was pledged at the
meeting. The committee went
right to work and although the can

already been subscribed. The com-

This movement is receiving the co
operation of the business men of the
village. Several have pledged $100
each and Mr. Pickard, the g-enia
proprietor of the "Inn" has agreed
to raise his subscription to $500 i
the whole amount is secured.
Every student should make a sub
scription, however small. Manv
who have pledged most liberally are
those, who by their own elforts, are
paying at least a portion of their
colleg-e expenses, but who are so in
terested m this .movement that they
are willing to make some sacrifice
for its succes's. Surely our alumni
will help generously those who work
so hard to help themselves.

ing in the chemical lecture room,

the River System in N. C."

graphy of N. C. in Carboniferous
and Permian time, showing- the dif
ferent drainage basins, and how
those of the present time had devel
oped, from them.
The next paper was by Dr. Bask-
erville on "Some Abnormal Constit
uents of the atmosphere" giving
special attention to the injurious
effects upon organic life of the soot
arising from the combustion of soft
coal in our manufacturing cities,
through its great power of absorb

Tuesday evening, Feb. 26, the
Philological Club held its second
meeting, in the English room. The
following papers were presented:
' 'Words in Piers Plowman Now
Obsolete," by Mr. J. PI Alexander.
He showed that many words in them
were now lost.
"Words Changed in Meaning,"
was the subject presented by Mr.
H. H. Home. The meanings of
words as then used were contrasted
with the meanings of the same words
now? showing that many words
are now used in a totally different
Mr. J. M. Oldham discussed the
transition from Shakespeare to
Pope, pointing out the causes of
this great movement in English po
etry, and showing the lines along
which it moved.
Dr. Hume followed, discussing
the "Reaction in the English 'Clas
sical' School of the 18th Century."
Dr. Hume showed that there were
reactionary tendencies in Pope him
self against his own school. He
traced these tendencies from Pope
to Gray, giving due prominence to
each poet in this transition.
Prof. Toy compared Shakes-
pere 's ' 'Midsummer Night's Dream' '
and Gryphius' "Herr Peter
Squenz." Each play was out
lined and similarities noticed, in
consequence of which Shakspeare's
play was shown to have been the
model of that of Gryphius.
Prof. Harrington gave some dif
ferent MS. readings of the ' ' Culex. ' '
With this the meeting closed.
