' 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. Bay Lespedeia.
