M. W. Dogan president of Wiley College and president Joseph j. Rhoads of Bishop College and announcing a the adoption of plans of affiliation Between the. Two local institutions was issued for publication Here last week. The decision to a Exchange two instructors and to employ jointly an outstanding professor or lecturer As the first step in the program of affiliation came after the two presidents and their boards had spent More than a year in a careful study of the problem of bringing the two colleges into mutually helpful relations and thereby improve their service for the youth of to blk Ege Grade in the Southwest.

The former is officially assigned to the Bishop College faculty and the latter to Wiley. The name of the third joint teacher is being withheld pending the completion of business matters having to do with his employment. It is probable that the further affiliation quot of the two colleges will gradually take place through a More Complete differentiation of their curricula the elimination of unnecessary and expensive duplications of work the erection of a few buildings for the common use of both schools the adoption of a combined or coordinated annual pro Gram of lectures and recitals the development of cooperative provision for the enrichment of curricula the improvement of the social and recreational life. Of the two student bodies and the joint a operation of a summer school a the two presidents said.
