iMthwostorn University to bo Re-
mvod from Georgetown
Asheville, N. C. Hoy 10 —It
announced late tate tonight that
a preliminary agreemeut had been
entered into whereby Southwestern
University will be moved from
Georgetown to Dallas, and will be
made the greatest university in the
Southwest. Dr. R. S. Hyer, presi-
dent of the university, said tonight
that a tentative contract had been
made for fifteen days, pending a
meeting of the board of trustees of
the partronizing annual conferences.
Ho also stated that the agreement
seemed to be satisfactory to the rep-
resentatives nf the Polytechnic col-
lege of Fort Worth, who are here.
In case the terms of agreement are
sanisfactorily adjusted, it is propos-
ed to make Southwestern University
second to none in the south, and in
that event Polytechnic college will
become a part of that great institu-
tion, and its relations to Ft. Worth
will not be changed, further than it
will in all probability be converted
into the greatest woman's college
and conservatory in the South. In
which case it will be worth even more
to Fort Worth and vicinity than it
now is as a co-ecucational institution.
With reference to the proposed
change and acceptance bo the South-
western University of the Dallas of-
fer, which is understood to be a cam-
pus of 50 acres and $400,000 cash,
Rev. R. A. Boaz, president of the
Polytechnic college, said tonight to
the Record correspondent:
"As Dallas has made a proposi-
tion equal to, if not better tnan Ft.
worth had made, and realizing that
relations exist between Dallas and
the authorities of the Southwestern
University, which would make them
more favorable to Dallas than to Ft.
Worth, and in the interest of har-
mony and the best interest of our ed-
ucational institutions in Texas, we
Will be compelled to yield in favor
This is generally understood to be
a very generous aod magnanimous
spirit on the part of Dr. Boas, and
while this is so, it is said by friends
of both schools that after the details
are worked out the Polytechnical
college will be even bigger, better
and worth far more to Ft. Worth
than it is at present. It is also un-
derstood that the tentative agree-
ment is satisfactory to all parties
concerned, and that a meeting of
the boards of trustees of both insti-
tutions will be held in a few days
looking to the arrangements of de-

Do farmers eat the proper
sort of food ?
The fanner of today buys a much
larger proportion of the food that goes
on the table than he did ten years ago.
It's a good thing that this is so because
he has a great variety to select from.
He should, however, use great care
in selecting for the best results in
health and strength.
The widespread tendency in the city
to increase the amount of Quaker
Scotch Oats eaten is due very largely
t<> the recent demonstrations oy scien-
tific men that the Quaker Scotch Oats
fed man is the man with greatest
physical endurance and greatest men-
Farmers should live this subject

the quantity of Quaker Scotch Oats
eaten by themselves, their children
and the farm hands.

Petitions Being Circulated Asking
Pondexter and Johnson to
Waxahachie, May 10.—Evidently
becoming alarmed over the political
situation as it applies to the guber-
natorial contest and fearingthe defeat
of both Johnson and Poindexter if
the two remain in the race, the pro-
hibitionists of the more important
local option counties in Texas will
soon present these candidates with
petitions, asking them to submit
their names to a preliminary pt i nary
in order that one of them may to
eliminated from ther ace.
That such a movement has been
launched, was disclosed here today
by the circulation of a petition
among the friends of Judge Poindex-
ter and Mr. Johnson. A large num-
ber of signatures were secured in
Waxahachie, so it is claimed. It is
understood here that these petitions
were started simultaneously in all
the principal local option counties in
the state. As soon as each county
has been thoroughly canvassed Judge
Poindexter and Mr Johnson will be
furnished with copies of the petitions.

The auxiliary of the Christian
Womans' Board of Missions held a
most interesting and instructive
meeting on Tuesday, May 10, at the
church. The topic discussed was
The Helen E. Moses Memorial Fund.
This fund consisting of 850,000 is
being raised by the auxilajies every
where for the purpose of meeting
the great needs of our mission sta-
tions, and of showing in a small way
appreciation of the woman who gave
her all to the Master. Truly her
service was one in. which all thought
of self was eliminated.

After the program and the busi-

diversion. Pictures of a number of
missionaries had been secured and
those present were asked to write
names of same, the one getting the
highest number to receive a picture
of Mrs. Moses. Mrs. Shore possesses '
