(BRITISH ItHY GREECE BlOCKADf
Cites Unanswerable Arguments to
show that Abilene should contrib-
ute to building of new Dormito-
ry for Girls at Simmons.
Tho following most Interesting lti
ton lew was given by President J. D.
Snndefor ot Simmons College Tues-
day nt tho truest of tho Abilene
Daily Itcportcr and Abilene Reportcr-
Nowb: "At tho opening of SlmtnonB Col-
lego In September Col J. H. Parra-
more nnnounced publicly a gift ot
?' 0000 for tho erection of a now girl's
Imll nt Simmons College provided a
sum of $30000 could be raised In Ab-
ilene. The $30000 must bo raised
within six months from tho time the
proposition was made. Col. Merchant
Immediately responded with $3000.
Ono Cther friend proposed to glvo $2.
000. .Thus $10000 of tho $40000 Is
provided for through threo citizens of
Abilene. The amount therefore to be
yet raised te $25000.
"A number of representative busl-
nnua mint RtlBBOHted to IIlO CUrly In UlC
fall that tho amount could be much
more readily raised by our waiting un-
til tho last of November or the first
of December before Undertaking the
proposition. This time has come. 1
confidently believe that 'tho property
owners and buslnesB men goncrnlly
of Abllcno will glvo this matter their
moa Berious concern and economic
support. By so doing It will be enoy
to tako arc of this proposition and
no ono be seriously cmbnrrassed.
"Permit me to say that between
thirty and forty girls have had to be
nlaccd In private homeo tills fall. Wo
Uot Bomo outright because they could
not bo provided for In one of our dor-
mitories. We havo some on the wait
Ing list now to ontor with us nt the
earliest practicable tlmo that they can
get room in our Hall. If therefore
we are to grow anymore accommoda-
tions must bo provWkdto take enro of
this overflow of ajtudentf. owirlendB
in the City have no Idea how earnest-
ly we havo labored to handle this con-
gestion and to savo thcrfe students to
tho Cotlego and to Abilene.
I desire to call tho attention of the
public to a fact that I bollovo It will
appreciate. So far as I have been able
to ascertain practically everyone of
our larger Institutions in Texas buys
thousands of dollars worth of groce-
ries In bulk from large centers llko
Philadelphia and Chicago. I have made
considerable Investigation and find
this to bd unirormly true. The man-
agement of each of our halls pur-
chases practically everything neces-
sary for their maintenance from our
local business men. This mean hat
thousands of dollars are going Into
Ablleno yearly for tho support of our
retail merchants. It seems to me
therefore that In Justice to an Inter-
est that is manifestly for the upbuild-
ing of Ablleno that every merchant
and property owner cannot but assume
an attitude of helpfulness toward this
position. In view of the fact that
it has become generally known over
tho wejit that this proposition has been
madelt will be practically impossi-
ble for me to enlist tho sympathies of
friends of the College away from Abi-
lene In our efforts to procure other
Kings" unless this challenge of OJL
Parramore'a should be met by our
"ifhS'been conservatively Btated
by tho editor of the Reporter that
Some hing like $300000 annually Is
snet in Ab lene by Abilene studen s
and their families. I believe this is
conservative. Simmons College is one
of the really large Institutions now
of Texas It is attracting attention at
SJtlme as no other denomJnaUona
college In the west to say the least or

will have- fifty or moro new ones to

Simmons College will havo an nnnhal
enrollment this year including the
Summer School and Summer Normal
enrollment ot more than 1000 stud-
ents. This l repeat produces on
economic stream flowing Into Abilene
throughout almost tho entire year of
thousands of dollars and no ono
spending this money here Is making a
p nny In our city.
''It la conservative Ho say that ninety

its at tho hands of her friends. She
Is destined to grow and become one of
the largest and most useful colleges
In the south or southwest provided her
buildings and accommodations enn be
kept commensurate with her rapid
nnd steady growth. I throw down the
challongo to business men in Abilene
and tho west that with buildings nnd
accommodations adequato wo can
glvo yon on Institution with a dally
attendance of 100 studonts In a year's
tlmo after provisions and accommo-
dations havo been made. If however
this is to bo done it must be done
NOW. Tho present congestion can-
not and will not be tolorated by stud-
ents another year. -If their fidelity
and loynlty to the Institution arc to
obtain they must Beo evidences of ap-
preciation on tho partvotour local
frlondi In their response to this urgent
nnd Immediate call.
' "Let us get together and tako care
of tills unsubscribed $25000. and I will
then bo in a position to go to friends
away from Ablleno and gather funds'
for an additional administration build-
ing that will cnablo us to handlo a
thousand students dally. A number
ot friends who are able to do It out-
side of Ablleno havo committed them-
selves to my program of enlargement
that calls for tho Installation In our
curriculum of the manual and voca-
tional subjects. There Is no reason
why Abilene should not have an Insti-
tution ot learning with a curriculum
broad enough to appeal to every legit-
lmato Interest to be served In our great
west. I want (o seo In Ablleno within
tho next five years an Institution with
a faculty and equipment sufficiently
adequate and nraplo to enable young
men coming from the (arms and tho
ranches to recelvo here that culture
and technical training that has here-
toforo been found only In omo of our
stato supported Institutions. I find
that this practical program appeals to
tho farmer the ranchman and the
business man In general. It la a con-
structive program of education. It
will meet and serve a legitimate de-
mand. This sort of thinking la loom-
ing large In the minds of all wh are
giving themselves In thought to a con-
structive economic and educational
p ogram. I believe In the west- I be-
llevo in the business men ot Abilene.
I believe they know a business Depo-
sition. 1 believe they are gojng to
