SESSION OF 1918-'19
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 white bed spread, one pillow,
toilet articles, and knife, fork and spoon to be kept in room.
A simple, inexpensive uniform will be used, consisting of a coat
suit, with Oxford cap to match. 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

white dresses for recitals. No low-neck, sleeveless silk or satin "evening
gowns" will be allowed. They do not belong to school life. This
rule will be faithfully observed during the session.

not more important that you choose the best school, a school where
the hand, the head, and the heart are properly guided? This school
has modern equipment and competent instructors. We make a
specialty of quality, not only mental but moral and spiritual as well
There was a time when ships were blown into harbors by friendly
