ABILENE CHRISTIAN COLLEGE
sacrifice you put into their training will be the very best money you
ever spend for them or give to them. And don't make the fatal mistake
of sending them to a school where all attention is given to the
body and mind, while the soul is neglected.
Believing that the consecrated young man, who would preach the
gospel of Jesus Christ, should be thoroughly trained for his work, we
have planned a number of courses for this special purpose. The
courses are very practical. You are to "preach the word." It is
absolutely necessary for you to know the Word of God. Examine
especially the courses we offer in the department of the Bible. You
will note also the many other courses which we offer, that will be of
special value to you in your life and work as a preacher. Under the
most excellent care and instruction of Brother Klingman, Brother
Freeman and Brother Sewell you will have excellent opportunities. It
is not likely you could find teachers who are more able and who are
better fitted for the work. To all students actually preaching we will
give free tuition. This does not mean matriculation, library, laboratory,
fees, etc., it simply means tuition in the department in which one
Bring your text books with you. They may be of service, if not to
you, to others. We will use, as far as possible, the text books used
in the State schools. A book store will be conducted on the campus
for convenience of the students. You can get what you need at this
store. All text books are subject to change. Bring your old books but
do not buy new ones before coming here.
WHAT TO BRING
Each student should bring a Bible, bed linen, towels, napkins,
one pair of blankets, one comfort, one bed spread, one pillow, toilet
articles, drinking glass, and plate, cup, knife, fork and spoon to be
kept in room.
UN I FORMS
A simple, inexpensive uniform will be used, consisting of a coat
suit. The uniforms will be purchased under the direction of Mrs.
J. P. Sewell. These uniforms will avoid extravagance in dress by
our boarding girls. We suggest simple dresses for every day wear.
If you have plenty of money there is no reason why you should waste
it on your daughters while they are in school. It will do them harm
and not good. Young ladies who expect to study music and expression
should be provided with simple inexpensive white dresses for recitals.
No low-neck, sleeveless "evening gowns" will be allowed. They do
not belong to school life. This rule will be faithfully observed during
