past spring pledged in donations to
the effective organisation *>f the
Alumni Association and to athletics
over two thousand dollars. The
Alumnj of Mercer today are more in
terested in Mercer's onward pro
gress than ever before. As men of
leadership throughout Georgia and
the Sotath as well as the nation at

Mercer’s recent strides in removing
her indebtedness and acquiring in
so short a time over half a million
dollars endowment They realize
a larger degree of progress in the
immediate future with the adjust

has been in the recent past.
Dr. J. G. Harrison, who is secre

already received in cash over half
the amount pledged. It is earnestly
requested that the other pledge/ be
paid at once. s

To solitude I love.”

The success of a college in athletics
and in other lines of competition is
due largely to college spirit.
Without a student body there can
be no college—without a student
body there can be no college spirit,
therefore it follows that without a
