Evansville Crescent (Newspaper) - June 3, 1921, Evansville, Indiana Not to be Ministered unto, but to Minister (Motto) THE CRESCENT Vol. II. Evansville, Indiana. June 3, 1921 No. 31 College Lads Win Meet With Local "Y" Although Handicapped by absence of Members, Track Team scores 61-47 Victory In spite of having- several regular members of the team absent, the E. C. track siiuad beat the local "Y" team in a meet on the college field last Saturday. The final score was 61-47. The college was strong in the field events and the "Y" in the runs, but a greater number of seconds accounted for the college's victory. The high jump went to the college by forfeit, and the relay to the Christians by the same route. Lindsey starred for the college and Kleymeyer for the "Y" each with 16 points. McCormick of the "Y" showed remai-kable endurance and versatility by taking the mile and 880 and tying for first in the pole vault. The 880 was run in good time, 2:07, and the 440 in good time, 54 3-5, considering the fact that the winner, Kleymeyer, was not pushed and finished in a leisurely fashion. The feature of the meet was the finish of the mile run. McCormick had a ten-yard lead on the finish but Shafer of the college made a magnificent sprint which failed by only six inches to bring him past the tape, winner. The time was 5:05. Parsons Advocates Statue ot Willard Carpenter In chapel Friday morning. Major Byron F. Parsons of the G. A. R. suggested that a move be undertaken for a statue of Willard Carpenter to adorn the Willard Library park. "I believe your president. Dr. A. F. Hughes, is the man to accomplish this," said Major Parsons. "It is a disgrace upon the city that nothing has been done in memory of the man who gave Evansville more material wealth than any other man." A delegation of Farragut Post, G. A. R. visited the college to give a patriotic program and to ask for flowers Commander William Warren was in charge. W. Lee Smith, representing the American Legion, spoke briefly, followed by Tom Lindsey, representing the sons of veterans. Capt. August Leich read Gen. Logan's Order 11, establishing Decoration Day, and a poem, "Who Will Tell the Story".

Barr Visits Farm Field Secretaries Report Progress Encouraging reports are being received from the three field secretaries of Evansville College who now are busy soliciting sustentation pledges for Evansville College. "This is not a campaign", said Dr. Hughes Wednesday. "It should not be thought of as such. We are just placing Evansville College before the people and soliciting their support in a small way. The field secretaries are laying the foundation for the great financial campaign which must come later." The field secretaries at work are Rev. 0. E. Halev, Rev. Sherman C. Powell and Dr. Fred M. Stone. According to reports received, the general depression over the country makes the work of solicitation hard. "The sentiment toward Evansville College is splendid," they write. "If farmers and others were not so hard put for funds we would only have to say what we want and we would get it." Oakland City College Gets Donation of $112,000 Upon learning of the gift of $112,-000, from the Rockefeller foundation to Oakland City College, the student body and President Hughes sent congratulations to W. P. Dearing, president of Oakland City College, last Friday. "The gift probably means the saving of Oakland City College for education in Southern Indiana," said President Hughes. "Credit is due for the greater part to President Dearing-, M'ho has unselfishly given his service to that college for more than a quarter of a century at a sum too pitiful to mention. The receiving of this money is a worthy crowning of a long and useful life." Professor Barr left Friday noon for his farm near Selvin, Ind., where he spent a three-day vacation. STUDENT VOLUNTEERS BREAKFAST AT PARK Friday morning. May 27, the Student Volunteers arose and caught a "5:30 car" at six o'clock for Mesker Park. Upon arrival the Band disbanded to gather wood.

CONCEIT Conceit still dogs humility, For think how it would grieve us. When we confess our inmost faults, To have the w^orld believe us! —A. F. B. Dr. Hughes Writes on College Weeii President of College Association explains Situation Before Church Schools in Article A full page article on Indiana College Week appeared in the Western Christian Advocate from the pen of Dr. A. F. Hughes. It was reprinted by the Evansville Courier. The Courier prefaced the article with the following statement: "When all the presidents of colleges of the state, including the public institutions, met last fall to urge the legislature to provide Ijetter for the state colleges, Dr. Hughes saw the need of getting the work of the church colleges before the people of the state. After helping all the state institutions as much as he could he was instrumental in calling a meeting of the presidents of denominational colleges at which the association was formed. Dr. Hughes was elected its first president." In his article Dr. Hughes puts squarely before the readers the situation which is facing church colleges today. The raising of the requirements for standardization by the legislature recently has put many church colleges in imminent danger of losing their standanl. The rule now is that a college must have an endowment of .$500,000 or a fixed income of $25,000 per year by September 1 of this year if it is to retain its standard. He points out the necessity for the retention of the church colleges.
