A JOYOUS OCCASION
The get-acqualnted reception given by
(lie Ilapllst Student' Union in the parlors

ceiving line and mingled together in the

coming of the new students and faculty
members to Simmons College
The reception rooms and parlors at Mary

sion with a variety of early fall flowers
In artistic arrangement used in profusion
in the rooms
Greetings were given by Mr. John
Thomas Duncan president of the B. S. U.
who stood at the head of tho formal lino
line Composed of the Simmons College
faculty officers of the D. Y. P. U.s and
Sunday schools of the College Heights
Daptist church and the First Baptist
church pastors of these churches and their
Following the formal reception hour

friend or many friends have stepped into
the breach and enabled the college to
continue its great work. The Baptists of
Welt Texas and the citizens of .Abilene
have ever stood loyally behind the institu-
tion and upheld its hands and to them
it owes a vast debt which it must repay
and can only repay in tho training of
young men and young women for the task
they havd of the upbuilding of West Texas.
From Rev. Frlley on Simmons College'
has had a succession of splendid presi-
dents. These' have been Dr. G: 0. Thatch-
er Dr. 0.. C. Pope- Rev. C. J. Hairfield
Dr. 0- IL Cooper and finally Dr. J D.
Sandefer who has served wisely' and well
as President since 1909. During the
thirty years since the opening session sev-
eral acres have been added to the campus
which . has increased many-fold in value
through the northward growth of the city.
That first structure described by Dr. Mac-
Arthur as "a splendid brick building three
stories high and costing thirteen thousand
dollars" has given way to a fine group of
eight large buildings elaborately equipped
and two of which cost more than one hun-
dred thousand dollars each. The student
body has increased from ninety in .1892 to
982 in 1920.
That; in brief is the story of the growth
of Simmons College. It is a story of which
she is justly proud. It is a growth which
has been achieved without the sacrifice of
the splendid Ideals to which she was orig-
inally dedicated.. Other schools many of
them have attained IheiFgrovtK only by
laying aside their original alms and ideals
and submitting to dictation as to their
policies and teachings by those upon
whom they had to depend for support.
Not so Simmons. Ever has she been loyal
and true to the plumb line of the princi-
ples laid down in the foundation agreement
submitted by Dr. Simmons.
That foundation agreement stated the
objects of the school to be: First to bring
young men and women to Christ. Second
to teach them Christ. Third to train them
for Christ. The students who como to
Simmons College are surrounded with an
intense Christian atmosphere urged to at-
tend Churclj and Sunday School services
regularly and required to attend daily wor-
ship in (he chapel exercises. In an effort
to reach the unsaved a College Revival is
held each spring and in its services many
are led to Christ. The pledge to teach
the students Christ is carried out in the
work of the Bible Department in which
every student is required to take at least
two courses. I he u. a. u. vuapusi oiu-
dents Union) with its branches; the Min-
isterial Council the Volunteer Band the
Special Workers the Laymen's Council
and the Lay-women's Council together
With the many local B. Y. P. XL's seeks to
train them for Christ. It is a significant
fact that many missionaries on foreign
fields and a host of preachers throughout
Texas and the Southwest have obtained
their education at the hands of Simmons
Simmons has stood high in the ranks of
whatever form of athletics in which she
elected to take part. In her archives are
many trophies she has won in football in
baseball in basketball or in track events.
But greater than these is the spirit of Sim-
mons in athletics. When she has won
she has left with her opponents the mem-
ory of her courtesy and her clean sports-
manship. When she has lost she has taken
defeit with good grace and set herself to
prepare for victory next time.
In the field of oratory and debating her
shield has not been less lustrous. Simmons
is known throughout the Stale as a for-
midable opponent for any school that at-
tempts to engage her In the forensic arena.
Among the most outstanding triumphs in
this line have been the winning of the
first nlace in the Peace Prize Oratorical
Contest of 1917 and the victories over
Baylor University debating teams.
In conclusion the past of Simmons Col-
lege has been filled with achievement-
glorious worth-while achievement; . he
present is athrob with action and vibrant
with the doing of the things that count
in the making of men and women; and her
future is rich with promise. Hopefully
she turns her eyes toward the rising sun
of progress and reflected on the clouds
through which its first beams strike she
beholds the loved tints of the purplo and
gold of her own banner. Then hail to
Simmons College and onward her student
body with veneration for the Simmons' of
Yesterday undying love for the Simmons
of Today and a supreme faith in tho
Simmons of Tomorrow!

World Exhibit For
Demonstration of What Denomina-
tion Is Doing Everywhere to Be
Given At Stockholm.
One of the most extensive denomina-
tional exhibits that lias been made any-
where in the world is contemplated in con-
nection with the. next meeting of the Bap-
tist World Alliance at Stockholm Sweden
In July 1923. At .the recent meeting of
the executive committee of the Alliance in
London to prepare for the Stockholm gath-
ering it was voted to have a representa-
tive exhibit of the activities and institu-
tions of Baptists from all parts. of the world
for the purpose of. more fully acquainting
those who attend the Alliance with just
what the Baptists of the world are doing.
A committee to assemble the exhibit is
headed by Dr. W. Y. Fullerton Baptist
Foreign Mission Secretary for Great Brit-
ian. Southern Baptists will doubtless send a
very large exhibit to Stockholm as a large
exhibit hall wilt be procured tor the oil-play.
SUMMER CLASS GIVES
The Shakespearian play Midsummer
Night's Dream presented by Mrs. Clay-
ton's summer class in expression was by
far the best entertainment offered the sum-
mer students and people of Abilene in the
way of dramatic presentation during the
summer months. This play which is con-
sidered a rather difficult undertaking for
amateurs under much more favorable con-
ditions than those which Mrs. Clayton and
her class were forced to face proved to be
a complete success in every way and was1
a fitting crown for the class's study and
efforts. Tho Abilene Reporter made the
following comments on the play and play-
ers! It was a superb presentation of Shake-
speare's Midsummer Night's Dream given
Monday evening at Simmons College under
thev direction' of Mrs. L. May Putnam Clay-
ton by the pupils of her summer class in
expression at Simmons assisted by a few
young ladles from town.
The play was' staged on the lawn amone
the crove of lovelv oak tree's nt Marv
Jrances Hall and the woodland effect was
splendid the moonlight scenes and all
lighting- effects being especially .delightful.
This amusing play contains much that is
of interest to young lovers of today as the
bard of Avon" wrote for all time he suc-
ceeded in portraying the feelings and as-
pirations of the young of his. time so ac
curately that today these characters re-
main true to life. Miss Stella Broughton
as Theseus gave a splendid Interpretation
of' the duke. Her strong voice added much
to the dignity of the character. Miss Scotti
Mae Hincs as Lys;nder Miss Eula Mingus
as Demetrius Mrs. Watts as Hermia. and
Miss Georgia Mingus as Helna gave the
lover's quarrel with much force. They
proved that the course of true love never
did run smooth. Miss Hines has a com-
manding stage appearance speaking' her
lines with dignity and with meaning looks.
She proved herself quite' an artist
in the interpretation of the clian
acter Miss ' Hines played her part
most acceptably her clear voice being es-
pecially noticeable. The companion part
of Demetrius by Miss Eula Mingus was
done in a most admirable manner. A real
Athenian' prince she looked to be and acted
the part of the lover in the varying moods
of delight disappointment and anger as
tho in real lift. Mrs. Watts played the
'role of Hermia very beautifully. When
she arose to the situation and demanded
revenge for' her lost lover she gave the
height and depth of this character. Miss
Georgia Mingus very clearly presented the
sweet character of Helna.
Oberon king of Fairyland played by
Miss Mary Biggs was quite artistically
presented and in a manner which showed
that the actress was no .amateur. Miss Au-
line King as Titania the queen had a
part which lends itself to much. fine acting.
The most universally liked character in the
play was Puck played by. Miss Clara Mae
Lloyd who was strikingly costumed in
red satin. The interpretation given this
part on this occasion was that ot a mis
chievous fairy. The- dancing was quite
lovely and a. storm of applause from the
audience expressed appreciation ot her.
She has a wonderful voice and every work
spoken by her. carried distinctly to every
one in the' audience.
Miss Madge Morrison who is a real
artist was unusually good in her' part o:
flute and bellows-mender and won a great
deal of favor from the audience in her
death scene. Miss .Ruth Norwpod as
Quince proved herself an ideal stage man-
ager. Her voice' was particularly lovely
and her audience was' delighted with her
portrayal of this character. The star of
the' evening .was Mrs. Clayton a real ac-
tress and words of praiso were heard on
every side regarding her presentation of
Nick Bottom the weaver. With the ones
-mentioned and Miss Pauline Oliver as
Starveling Mrs. Miller as Hippolyta Mrs.
Clayton and the other mechanics afforded
a great deal ot merriment especially in the
play in tho garden.
The little fairies. Misses Eoline Grisham
as Peablossom Lucile Ashford as Cob-'
web Beulah Ashford as Moth and hlva
James Grisham as Mustard Seed Edith
Milam as first fairy Janice Miller as First
Fairy and Mary Joe Baker as second fairy
in "The Spotted Snake" were assisted by
some twenty other tiny tots in making the
scenes a veritable .fairy land as in their
silvered wings and flowing draperies they
darted from tree to tree or played on the
