MORAL AND RELIGIOUS INFLUENCE
Abilene Christian College is pre-eminently an institution for Christian

with no more talent are going right ahead. We have assisted otherswe
may be able to assist you. Write us plainly and fully of your difficulties

A WORD TO PARENTS
You have succeeded without education. Yes, and you can't tell
how much better you might have succeeded with education. And conditions
are different now. Competition is keener in every department
