ABILENE CHRISTIAN COLLEGE
The Library contains more than eight thousand carefully selected
volumes. These books are carefully indexed so that students
do not lose time and effort in finding the best books on
the subjects, nor in reading inferior or out-of-date treaties. A

what subjects are treated, how many pages in each book, and
the date of publication. Neither time nor effort has been spared

place to take your training. We are ambitious to help to supply
