Visitor Finds Mach Interest
Over County In Boiling Springs
People Aiixlous To Retain Baptist
Junior College. Good Spirit
'' Shown.
' When I came to Shelby two weeks
ago at the invitation of the presi
dent of the school, Dr. Zeno Wall,
and his trustees to promote \he
success of the emergency appeal I
knew practically nothing concern
ing this junior college, Since I have
been in Shelby and in *he county oi
Cleveland in the interest of the
school I have been listening to what
the people of this section have to
say about their college, the only one
in this section. I have reached the
following conclusions:
1— The people of Cleveland coun
ty believe in Boiling Springs college
Most of them love It with a very
e rdent love and look on it as "their
own school,” located right among
them, educating their own sons and
daughters, and, therefore, having
the first claim on their gifts to de
nominational education.
2— -The sacrifices that the teach
ers in the college are making to
promote the interest of the school,
the fine group of students who are
there with high purpose to make
the best of their opportunities, the
loyalty of the pastors of the coun
ity, the strong conviction of Dr
[wall, the president, that such a
school as Boiling Springs junior
college Is an essential unit In our
educational program, these things
give assurance that the school is
here to stay.
3— The people of Cleveland coun
ty can do anything they want to do.
They generally pull together for the
accomplishment of their purposes.
This is one of the greatest farming
counties in the south. I have seen
sections of the county where pros
perity was in evidence on every side
Money is not circulating freely just
now. However, there is about as
much in Cleveland county in pro
portion to the area as you will find
anywhere in the south In spite of
“the depression” the noble people
of the county have an opportunity
to do something for one of their
schools that will reveal to the state
that whenever anything is left to
Cleveland county to look after that
it will not go lacking.
4— The junior college is here to
stay. It is a popular unit in our
educational program. It is meeting
a crying need in the educational
world. The people of Cleveland
county have such a school among
them. It is to become more popular
with the passing years. The main
thing now is to make it sure and
steadfast. If the noble, sacrificial
thing is done now in these times of
“depression” it will give soul and
spirit to the school, such, as gener
ous giving in times of prosperity
could not give.
5— 1 have seen farmers during
the last few days stop their work
to write a check for $50.00 or $25.00
for Boiling Springs college. May
such a spirit of giving stir all the
Baptists of Cleveland county. We
have until Easter in this special ef
fort. Thousands of Baptists and
their friends should get in on this
special effort just now. Do as one
splendid citizen of Shelby did a few
days ago, he mailed to Dr. Wall a
check for $100.00. Do as a noble
woman of Shelby did when she gave
to Dr. Wall a check for $50.00. Let
us make this a great victory and
show' to the world that Cleveland
county knows how to reach every
objective undertaken.
