A JCNIOR COLLEGE.
Parents who wish to educate their children above the high school -are
oftea undecided whether to send them a long distance from home to a great
and well-equipped university, surrounded with many dangers, or to keep them
at home to the neglect of their Intellectual advancement. To the truly alert
aiitl.informed guardian it seems to be a choice between evils. For many the
Junior college is helping solve this problem by proving a useful link be-
t*v«*?n the high school and the university or it may prove a link between the
hi V school and the far distant smaller college. The advantages of a, junior col-
lege are obvious.
Smaller Classes and Personal Contact.
Other things being equal the student who la In a smaller Institution where
the classes are not so large has a distinct advantage because he can "receive
the personal attention of his instructor. Where the classes are very large the
timid student is ofton unwilling to show his lack of knowledge by asking
questions and may pass on until his failure necessitates his elimination from
the institution. Among the freshmen who are dropped from the universities
there are no doubt many who would succeed under surroundings which are not
no radically removed from those of the high school but are atlll a step toward
Moral and Religious Conditions.
A smaller denominational college or junior college can look after the
moral and religious life of its students. The great universities obviously can-
not do this and often have conditions that rend to destruction of faith in a
spiritual religion and divine revelation. How important that the education of
a student be under correct moral and religious influences as long as possible!
5 Home Influences.
If students In their, teens are sent to school away from parental Influ-
ences and to places where there are no moral and religious reytralnts they
aAs subjected to great danger. The conveniently located Junior college will at-
low the combination ol some home Influences with the healthy moral at-
mosphere of the institution.
It can be confidents predicted that the ordinary student can get through
ft year at MfKlnney Junior College for from fifty to sixty-five per cent of
what It will cost him in a great university center at a distance from his home,
if he can live at home and attend the institution the per cent will be even
If ther^ is a favorite college at a distance from which the student wishes
to take his diploma or If he wishes to graduate from a great university why
should he not In either case take his first two years of college work at the
junior college where there Is possible the personal contact with the instruc-
tor, better moral and religious conditions, a more satisfying social life, the
advantage of being nearer homeland the whole at a greatly reduced expense.
llAwlnney Junior College is a denominational institution. The manage-
ment stands for the type of Christianity which was preached by John Wes-
ley, Chas. O. Finney, and 11. T. Roberts, and will give its influence to the
promotion of a spiritual religion. The trustees are elected by the Texas An-
nual CJouference of the Free Methodist Church.
f I/ocation. '
^ilcKlnney, a city of 10 000 population, Is the county seat of Collin Coun-
^Uti"«'xas. The county has a population of 70,000 and is one of the richest
**®**4ilng districts In the United States. Cotton, wheat, corn, oats and alfalfa
are the leading product*. Also Collin County Is a center for the production of
regUttered live stock. In McKlnney are located a cotton mill, cotton cum-
prem and one of the largest flour mills In the Southwest. Also there are sev-
eral cotton gins and various manufacturing plants.
The city Is on tho Texas Electric Hallway, H. A T. C. Branch. Southern
Pacific Railway, and McKlnney and Greenville Branch M. K. A T. Railway.
The climate Is mild "No malaria, no typhoid fever." The rainfall Is about
e name as in Southern Illinois.
The enterprise and appreciation of Christian education on the part of the
'pie of McKlnney is best shown by the fact that Its cltlsens purchased and
ive to the institution a beautiful site for a college campus and 148 adjoining
ts They gave in addition a cash contribution of $26,000.
The campus overlooks Trinity River Valley and the city of McKlnney,
n tliV property are many young trees set out four years ago. The campus
far enough removed from the center of the city to give favorable condi-
tions for outdoor life.
The administration building Is a beautiful, new modern structure of pleas-
1 _ „(4>hltectujnl design and finished with a consideration for good taste and
utility. This bulbflng is two-story with extremities 1.15x165 feet. Hore are lo-
cated offices of administration, class rooms, library, labrntoiies, and an audi-
torium i!5xf*0 feet which will seat 1000 people. Also the cullnnry department
will l>o In this building for the school year 1920-'21. Smaller buildings con-
veniently located will be used for dormitory purposes.
' Since the institution Is to be conducted according to the high educational
MandardH of the State of Texas, library and labratorles proportionate to the
of the various courses will be supplied.
II Is the purpose o< the Institution to offer first class educational advan-
tage* Wider flie very b« Ht moral and religious conditions. Tho faculty is Be
looted slid the whole work of tho institution planned with the understanding
that wan has a three-fold nature. The school will endeavor not only to serve
us students but to serve mankind' and the kingdom of Jesus Christ through
Athletics mill Social Ijlfc.
<£hletlcs and social life nre both recognised as necessary and will both
he allowed but neither will be permitted to dominate the school or to inter-
fere with the renl work of the Institution. Both of these classes of activity
will be regulated by the authorities of the school,
Facilities for Self-Support.
Tho college will need and will bo glad to employ students to help In the
i Military department, and to do Janitor work, ete. Also reliable persons will
ll(, necessary for office work and library. Applications for such positions
Hiinuld bo mado early.
McKlnney being a town of factories, stores, enterprise and wealth, offers
unlimited opportunities for industrious and rollable students to work their way
tlirffugb school. "

bout as follows:
Music $225- 275
Kxpresslon 220- 250

ing, hooks, laundry and incidental expenses. These will vary greatly accord-
ing to the individual student.
