SESO OF 192-2 25
Training of the proper sort reaches the hand, the head, and
the heart. A mind that is properly cultivated will safeguard the
individual, the home, the state, and the church. Any training
that does not help one to live more completely is poor training.
As a school, we are constantly concerned more in the interests
we awaken than in the information that is given. We will not
be satisfied until we realize the most valuable result of education-"the
ability to make yourself do the thing you ought to do,
when it ought to be done, whether you like to do it or not."
Many young people, and many parents, make the very serious
mistake of thinking that they will find the best training in the
schools with extra large attendance. This is not necessarily true.
Especially it is not true in reference to younger students. The
best work can be done in small classes, where each student may
come in close touch with the teacher. The conscientious teacher
will study the weak and strong points of the pupil and know just
how to lead and assist each to the greatest development. A very
serious mistake for a young boy or girl is to enter an institution
that has a large enrollment only to be lost as an individual.
In view of the purposes and ideals of Abilene Christian College,
its improved facilities, fine student body, and the credits
and the certificates it may grant, we invite your careful investigation
and fair-minded comparison.
MORAL AND RELIGIOUS INFLUENCE.
Abilene Christian College is pre-eminently an institution for
Christian education. Every day's work has its devotional exercises,
and every lesson is taught by a Christian teacher. The Bible
is believed to be the inspired Word of God and students are
taught to reverence it as such and to obey its precepts.
You should be more careful in your choice of a school than
you are in guarding your health. If you needed the service of a
physician naturally you would place yourself in the hands of the
best. Is it not more important that you choose the best school, a
school where the hand, the head, and the heart are properly
