We are particularly pleased to announce that the Association
will hold a regional meeting in Waco on the campus of Baylor
University on the historic date of March 6. This meeting will
be a part of Baylor's general celebration in 1945 of her cen-
tenary. Mrs. Clay McClellan, of the Department of History in
Baylor, will be in immediate charge of the regional meeting.
We all recall with much satisfaction her handling of a similar
regional meeting in 1941, when the late Dr. Aynesworth was
toastmaster at the dinner. Put March 6, 1945, on your calendar
now and plan to be in Waco on that date. Write Mrs. McClellan
for reservations. A splendid tentative program has been drawn.
It will later be sent to the entire membership. Mrs. Lily M.
Russell, Director of Baylor's Centennial Celebrations, has kindly
furnished the following general announcement:
BAYLOR UNIVERSITY'S CENTENNIAL CELEBRATIONS
Baylor University, chartered by the Republic of Texas, February 1, 1845,
will celebrate her centenary in 1945. A splendid program featuring dis-
tinguished speakers has been planned for the period extending from Found-

Safeguard of Democracy. Major addresses will be related to this theme
and will be assembled in book form and published by one of the leading
publishers of America. An award of one hundred dollars has been an-
nounced for the best ode in harmony with the occasion and suitable either
to be read or to be set to music.
The major features of the Founders' Day program, as now contemplated,
include a service of remembrance and thanksgiving, several addresses, the
dedication of pillars and live oak trees to founders and original trustees,
and the awarding of honorary degrees.
In the period from Founders' Day to Commencement several conferences
will give emphasis to the Centennial. During the latter part of February
the third annual religious focus week is planned to make a notable con-
tribution to student life. In March, two significant events are scheduled:
on March 6, in cooperation with Baylor University, the regional meeting
of the Texas State Historical Association; and on March 22, 23, a confer-
ence on the future of the church related college under the direction of the
chairman of the Education Commission of the Southern Baptist Conven-

and the Office of the Co-ordinator of Inter-American Affairs will be held.
