SUCCESS. & rs 1 m The group of colleges and ' secon dary eehools which compose the Mer cer University System, numbering in all, have undertaken the of a weekly newspaper, le is The Mercer Cluster., of the journal was taken book of hymns issued by ercer nearly a hundred years some of which-he wrote, .called "Mercer's Cluster.” This book was widely need by Baptist churches in the South for many years.

SHORTER NEWS STUDENTS PRAISE MERCER CLUSTER Ifaar many doctors. in' can follow oat [that term implies and we are glad The editor of the “Mercer ’Clus ter” has asked that Shorter send «ome news notes for the next issue of the paper regarding the “under taking for the next issue-” As we have not seen an issue of the paper and do not know just what mission it is to perform, in the college worlds we are in doubt just what to say or how to say it. ’ . We will say, however., that we ap preciate the-courtesy extended Shor ter by the Editor of the Cluster, to have the college represented in its col umns and that we will do our best to send a short, snappy, news letter every week, mailing it so that/it will reach the Editor promptly aiid reg ularly. ‘ Shorter is glad that such a paper is to be published at Mercer; we sup pose from its name, that it is published in'the interest of all our Baptist institutions and that through its influence, it hope^ to unite-the colleges and secondary schools in .one~common interest, that of spread ing Christian education throughout our state and section. • Shorter is not a member of the Mercer System, -because-'of the pro steins of its charter and the Will of its founder, Cpl. Alfred Shorter, it .cannot make over, its property to the Holding Commission of the Conven tion, but. it is a BAPTIST institu tion and stands for the best princi ples of the. great church of which it is a part. Under the~*charier of the college, every one of its trus tees must be a Baptist in good stand ing in his church; it needs no .hold ing commission for the protection of its property, for under its charter, it is not allowed to go in debt or to place a mortgage' or lein of any kind against its property. It is ab solutely impossible to alienate Shor ter-from the Baptists of the state by any process whatsoever. While there fore, we are not a member of the 1 Mercer system, we desire the closest fellowship with the. schools and col leges whose charters do not prohibit the makihg over of their property to the Holding Commission. We- are jin fullest sympathy with every ob ject of our great Convention 1 . We •re BAPTIST in' everything that * to contribute to every object fos tered by our Convention. We thank Mr. Editor, for inviting us to letter in your columns every and if there is any way Nine Rahs for the- Mercer Clus ter. Come on boys and girls of the Baptist schools of the Mercer Sys tem and let us make the Mercer Clus ter the BIGGESTand BEST school paper in thpAJnited States. We can? YES., The Norman Institute students greeted the idea with a cheer when the President, Col. L. H. Browning, can.e from the conference in Macon and announced in chapel that all the Baptist schools of the Mercer System would publish a combined paper. The school showed appreciation by the whole student body subscribing at chapel immediately, electing 1 a staff of editors, * „ # - 1 The school is proud of the name, “Mercer Cluster” for when we hear it called, it makes one tEink^bf-'Sll^he /prep schools under the Mercer Sys tem and when reading it are brought in closer touch with others and learn more about the big educational sys tem.. Well,, it is a great idea and a bright"future before us, so let us strive to Teach the. goal. - J. E. NEWTON, Business Manager Norman Institute.

It was a great occasion and enjoyed. There are rumors throughout the college that the Mercer Glee Club will visit Shorter soon. We are wondering if this, is true.

NOTES Locust Grove already - has an en viable record, but if a more conL4-eonJtributor to London Punch plete faculty, a large student body, and a beter equipment are indica tions, 1920-21 will’ break all records. Bugle calls for revaille discover students pouring out of halls, build ings, tents, both on the off the cam pus, like rati., if ’.the windy little bugle eprps could wake up more they would do it, for their practice is lusty and full (if pep. Residents of Lo cust Grove are assured of plenty of poise. ' ; • «**» ■* Every crack and crevice around Locust- Grove is filled with students but the annex to the boys’ dormitory is nearing completion, so -these crowded conditions will soon be re lieved. ’ /Quite a number of students - re ceived B. Y. P. U. diplomas on Wed nesday morning. The school is grate ful to Field Worker Lewis Batts for' the excellent training course in -the Manual which he conducted here last week. t Much interest is being shown in B. Y. P. U. work at L..G. I. No school in Georgia offers wider op portunities or furnishes more whole some environment for training in Christian character. Although the local team has met cisive victory, there is every reason to believe that L. G. I. has one of the. best prep elevens in the state. At this writing local fans are anx iously awaiting results of the game with G. Mi A., which will no doubt be one of the hardest battles of the season. The student body is behind its team with the sort of spirit that maker for good athletics. L. G. I. believes in well developed, all-round men, and is offering every encouragement to clean athletics. Look out for the record this year. The first number of the Lyceum course Kirill be presented at the Au ditorium Saturday evening, October 9. This is an annual feature of the school work, and always contributes wonderfully to the enjoyment and culture of the student body. " •••• Among the faculty announcement* oii Thursday *n»orning was one of special interest to all those who en joy exercising their vocal organs. Miss Smith, of the Piano and Voice Department, requested all who could carry the “tiniest little tube” to re main after chapel. Quite a number responded and plans were farmed for organizing a Glep'Club. They will probably be heard far and wide during the year. They are anxious for the opportunity of prov ing themselves. WOMEN A woman is queer, there’s no doubt about that. She hates to be thin, and she hates to be fat One minute it’s laughter, the next it’s a cry, You can’t understand her, however you try. But there’s one thing about her which everyone jpiowa— A woman’s not dresaed till she pow ders her* nose. —Student Life.
