To or Guy d Newman. Mpg president. A Story in saturdays morning s Dallas morning news quoted an unnamed trustee of a Baptist College As saying three Texas Baptist colleges including Howard Payne May be closed or. Clinard expressed to or Newman by Telephone saturday morning. Newman labelled the report As incongruous and unfortunate and noted that while the Rumor came at an unfortunate time a the Promise of the future is in a statement issued saturday morning Newman said a i should like to at the Onset categorically refute any idea from anyone from the lowest position to the highest that any statement has been made that any action has been taken that any of our Baptist colleges will be closed a or. Newman a statement said in part a this Rumor that has gotten out is an ambiguous thing it could understandably Hurt Texas Baptist higher education but most Likely it will serve As a catalyst to precipitate people into action rather than to a negative reaction a Howard Payne College is 80 years old it was founded amid times of distress it has Glt a through years of depression and want. But today after 80 years of its existence it is in the finest condition that it has been in my opinion in All its history. It represents the Hopes dreams aspirations prayers tears toil sweat the blood the sacrifice of thousands and thousands of people. A and for anyone to imagine that in a precipitate action that an institution that not Only a a soul and a mind by has a great tradition could suddenly be placed on the Block and be sold constitutes a glaring incongruity As Well it is almost a blasphemous Impert Enance at this time in the history of education. A i happened to be a student at Baylor University during the years of the depression Baylor Means a lot to me and my tam ily. And it went through these perilous years of tears and trial. The faculty was Low the rumours were everywhere could Baylor sustain it Baylor went through other crises. A this Rumor could and very Likely will become a source of inspiration that will rally the people of Texas who love Howard Payne and the other institutions to move to another Era of Prosperity and Trust. A now to say that the Baptist colleges in Genera and Howard Payne in particular Don t have problems would be wrong each of us has our own problem. We will readjust ourselves we will accommodate to the problems that have been thrust upon us by the great revolution in education All Over our country. A even the tax supported or state supported schools have their problems we Are going through this transition we will meet it. A no one has any right to make any statement about the closing of any Baptist school until the Baptist general convention in Texas in session had approved such action. That is what makes the Rumor incongruous and unfortunate. A and to try to anticipate the emotional reaction of 10.000 to 15.000 Baptist delegates who represent the million Baptist membership in solemn session saying that this school or that school is going on the Block to in sold is one of the most diff ult thing him bag i ?. Mentality is one rung Baptist emotion is another. A hence we want to make a declaration on behalf of the Hoard of tru tees and on behalf of All concerned w to love Howard Payne College that while this Rumor has come at an unfortunate time the Promise of the future is Bright we have approximately 312 million dollars endowment we have approximately that much in sight to undergird the school. A we will do internal studies we will make changes that Are absolute essential to accommodating ourselves to the escalation of costs to the pressures on private schools. A the total assets approximately of Howard Payne College including endowment and capital on both campuses the Daniel Baker Campus and the main Campus has an appraised value of some la to 12 million dollars a in recent years the late j 4 Walker the largest Benet actor of Howard Payne whose Trust in the first National Bank in Dallas now is Worth $15 million called or w. R White who was then state Secretary he asked him what he thought the future of Howard Payne was. Or White quoted to me on the Telephone this week a i told or. Walker that Howard Payne like other Baptist schools would have problems in the future but he had Confidence that Howard Payne would remain As a Baptist school a a emr. Walker in response to the executive Secretary to the Baptist general convention of Texas during the years of the depression set up a million dollars which has now appreciated a million and a half. A these Are some of the vital Factor that ought to Insue Confidence in a1 people everywhere who love tile institution a or Newman Condu Dede. A ilk a to
