COLLEGE HAS LARGEST EN
ROLLMENT IN ITS HIS
The Southeastern Christian
College of Auburn, Georgia, has
the largest enrollment in its his
tory, and bad to decline a number
'of students for the lack of dormi
tory room to house them.
Auburn is ail ideal place for
this college, because the students
are free from all the temptations
that hinder their progress in large
town and cities. There are so
many things to make them spend
money, and the object of sending
young men and ladies to college
is to accomplish something worth
while and tit them for the stern
duties of life. Going to college is
not to have a good time and frolic
the years away while there.
There is no disputing the fact
tlmt the fewer the temptations
and the opportunities to spend
money and have a good time is
the place to send boys and girls
if you wish them to study and to
gain real knowledge.
We have no sympathy for pa
rents whose main consideration in
sending their hoys and girls off to
college is for the name, and feel
ing little interest in the moral wel
fare of tlieir children, or whether
they improve mentally.
And the boy or girl who goes
to college merely to frolic, have a
good time and spend all the mon
ey they can get out of their pa
rents. will accomplish little, and
would be far better off at home
and put to work.
Many hoys have been spoiled by
college life who would have made
good farmers and business men
with only a public school educa
