efficiency of the school are measured in terms of each or of all of
these. Every school must have a faculty, equipment, and a student
body. We feel sure that after you have noted the excellency of our
faculty and our equipment in buildings and courses offered, you
will resolve to constitute a part of the third essential factor-namely,
the student body.
OUR PRESENT EQUIPMENT; NEW AND MODERN
Our equipment is practically new. It is all modern and usable,
and is worth one hundred and twenty-five thousand dollars. Of course
this is not enough for a first class college but it is an excelent foundation.
It should be much easier to get the additional equipment that
is needed than it was to get what we have. We believe it will be.
The organization which has been gotten together as a result of years
of work, the recognition that is accorded the institution, the enthusiastic
loyaltyjof its students and patrons, and the character of its
service give it the right to ask for a united support. We are glad to
be able to report that the program for the enlarged service is being
enthusiastically received everywhere.
Our administration building has just been completed. It is a brick
and concrete structure, modern in design and construction. Besides
the basement, library and study hall, it contains sixteen excellent
class rooms, the three offices, and auditorium, all well furnished. The
auditorium is one of the very best west of Fort Worth. We can care
properly for four hundred students in this building.
This is our home for girls. It is an excellent brick and concrete
structure of three stories. It has all ordinary modern conveniences,
steam heat, running water in each room, two bath rooms on each floor
with hot and cold water, and electric lights. It is nicely furnished
throughout. The library, reception parlor, and dining room are decorated
with Sister Sewell's beautiful oil, pastel and water color pictures
and hand painted china. The library contains Bro. Sewell's excellent
collection of more than seven hundred books.
This is a new modern two-story brick building, first class in every
way. The rooms are large and well arranged. Each room has two
large windows and a good closet. There is running water in each
room. There are two bath rooms, with hot and cold water, on each
floor. The halls are wide and roomy and there is a large reception
room. It is heated with gas and is well furnished throughout.
This is a new, substantial, frame building, well lighted, and heated
with gas. It is equipped with new modern apparatus. During the
Summer this building will be enlarged and equipment for all science
to be offered next session will be installed.
The building formerly used for the boys is now used as a Girls' Industrial
Home. This is a good comfortable frame structure, with
