Tke College in Ooltewah 

AN OPEN LETTER 

Down in the heart of the Cumberlands, eighteen miles 
due east of Chattanooga lies the Southern Junior College, an 
institution in the South established to help young men and 
women of limited means to an education. Leading strong in 
the rational development of manual, mental, and moral sides 
of men, this school is striving to serve a very necessary part 
in the educational program of the United States. It is the aim 
of the school that young men and women getting a training 
here go back perhaps to their home community or to work 
anywhere throughout the world with the one aim and definite 
idea of real service to mankind. 

The time has come when we feel the Southern Junior 
College must become even more useful to the program of world 
service. It must expand its resources and equipment to meet 
the need of effective leadership throughout the world. Because 
of uncertainties in the financial world in these days, the edu- 
cation and training of future world leaders can not be neglected 
and must necessarily become expensive. 

This little pamphlet is sent out with the desire that not 
only the friends and neighbors of this College help in the 
raising of this $500,000 fund, but that the way in which they 
yield their influence will vitally awaken the giving impulse in 
strangers. 

If those who are not acquainted with the work this insti- 
tution is doing will take the opportunity to familiarize them- 
selves with the work of the school, and the aims expressed 
through this bulletin for the future of its young men and women, 
they will have no question as to the attitude that they should 
assume toward this unit in educational service. 

Respectfully the Executive Committee, 
W. H. Heckman, Chairman L. H. Wood 
J. L. McElhany W. E. Abernathy 

J. R. Kennedy F. L. Harrison

The College an Asset to the South 

Students in the Southern Junior College are training 
with no other thought in mind than leadership in world service. 
This is the value that the institution renders to the South. 
Taking the state of Tennessee as a fair average of educational 
growth throughout the South we find: 

1 . School Term. The average school term throughout the 
state in secondary education is I I 5 days. Our term is I 70 days. 

2. School Attendance. Actual attendance of school popula- 
tion throughout the state 50%. We are one unit in the plan 
to reach the other 50%. 

3. High School Wor\. Five per cent of the school enroll- 
ment in Tennessee is in the High Schools. By regulation 
terms, industrial education, and collegiate work, we are en- 
deavoring to assist in raising this percentage. 

4. Teacher Shortage. A shortage of l , 1 00 teachers through- 
out Tennessee alone confronts the educational system this 
year. We have organized our normal department in hopes to 
do our bit in helping along this line, not only throughout this 
state but in the other eight states of the South. 

5. Financial Responsibility. Last year the United States 
spent from $7.89 to $76.80 per capita on the education of the 
youth throughout the various states. Tennessee spent $15.59 
per capita. We spent an average of $61.07 on each student 
enrolled. 

6. Our Aims. We are striving: 

(a) To furnish training for citizenship which must 
meet the larger duties and solve the more complex problems 
of modern life. 

(b) To furnish vocational training adapted to the 
changed social conditions of our times. 

(c) To furnish training for the wise use and enjoy- 
ment of leisure time.

World Service and Effective Leader- 
skip 

During the few years since this institution was founded, 
we have seen some who have attended its classes engage in 
effective service in different parts of the world. A number of 
men and women who have finished its work have gone back 
to their home communities with the desire to give themselves 
in service for the betterment of these communities. These 
graduates have been instrumental in starting other young 
people toward high ideals in life. They have taken them from 
the mountains and farms and turned their minds toward the 
gaining of an education. We have sent former students to 
South America, to the Far East, to Africa, and we are pleased 
to see the spirit of the men and women who have been in this 
institution as they face the world problems, and meet them 
with the same spirit that they went about their duties here 
in the school. 

The world needs trained men and women because its 
great lack is leadership. In the present state of society, un- 
trained leaders can do naught but bring about ruin. Proper 
training can change the entire situation. Education in the class 
room and practical contact with modern social conditions in 
knowing men, in serving them, and directing them in their 
life problems, will help vitally to solve the problems now 
threatening the existence of the race.

The Field of Usefulness 
The Southland 

The following table of statistics from the Bureau of 
Education shows the tremendous field of opportunity that lies 
before the educators of the South. A careful study of these 
statistics will answer the questions raised in many minds as 
to why the South does not handle its own educational problem. 

School Children Adult 
State 5 to 18 Years Males 

Nevada 336 1,000 

South Carolina-...- 1,510 1,000 

South— as whole .... 1,279 1,000 

Eleven northern states (Massachusetts, Connecti- 
cut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, 
Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, 

Iowa).. _ .... 789 1.000 

Eleven western states (Montana, Wyoming, Cali- 
fornia, New Mexico, Idaho, Utah, Arizona, 
Nevada, Washington, Oregon, Colorado) 596 1,000 

Place this in its proper relation to the following table 
showing the average value of property for each child of school 
age (1912 census). 

Property valuation per capita 
State of sc hool age 

Mississippi $ 2,231 

Florida . 4,553 

Iowa...... 13,473 

California.. ... ..:.__._. . 16,898 

Nevada... 30,698 

South as whole 3,349 

Eleven northern states 9^228 

Eleven western states.... 12,383 

Thus we see that the problem of educating the young 
people of the South is six and one half times greater than in 
the West, because we have over two times the number of 
school children per unit population, and less than a third the 
property valuation per capita on which to levy taxes for the 
support of our education. In the same way our problem here 
becomes four times as great as it is in the North, as a whole. 

Illiteracy must be banished. The educational problem 
must be solved. The recent war has made us one people of one 
country, and we, therefore, present these facts before our 
friends knowing that they will sense, as never before, the need 
of institutions of this nature.

Flag Day 




The students of the 
Southern Junior Col- 
1 e g e showed their 
patriotism by cele- 
brating flag day in a 
very special manner. 
Out in the forest they 
found a fine seventy- 
five foot tree, brought 



it to the shop, placed 
the proper struts on it, 
and with due cere- 
mony raised it into 
place directly in front 
of the main building 
site. After appropri- 
ate chapel exercises 
and patriotic songs, 





the returned soldier 
lads carried Old Glory 
through the lines of 
students, and hoisted 
it to its proper place 
where it might 
proudly float over the 
beautiful hills sur- 
rounding one of the 
most unique schools 
in the country.

Facts About the College 

The Southern Junior College was founded in 1891, in 
Graysville, Tennessee. It was moved in 1916 to a six-hun- 
dred-acre tract of land two miles southeast of Ooltewah, on 
the Southern Railroad from Chattanooga to Atlanta. 

The students themselves have erected the buildings as a 
part of their training, have gone out into the woods and cut 
the timber, which has been sawed in the mill on the school 




THE BEGINNING OF BETTER FACILITIES 



farm. They have gone out onto the farm and garden, into 
the cannery, laundry, and print shop, and have learned the things 
that they will have to do after they finish their education. 

The school has no endowment at the present time and 
is entirely dependent on the friendship of those who are inter- 
ested in its development. The value of its property, buildings, 
shops, and equipment is $192,000. The nine states — North 
and South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Tennessee, 
Mississippi, Louisiana, and Kentucky^comprise its con- 
stituency. 

Southern Junior College takes as students many who 
need to work their entire way. By engaging in the various 
industries they are thus enabled to get an education which 
would otherwise be denied them.

One Students Story 

To conserve space we have picked out but one of the 
many interesting stories of the help that the Southern Junior 
College has been to its students. 

The Dividing of the Way 

"Imagine a typical saw-mill town, small, poor-looking, 
built on the bank of a river in Arkansas. This presents a 
picture of the place where I was born and spent my boyhood 
days. James was my faithful chum for seven years. Our at- 
tainments were the same, our hopes, our ideas, and ambi- 
tions, very similar. 

The time came when we decided to leave the village school 
and attend higher institutions of learning. James' parents 
were able financially to send him to a famous school where the 
expenses were very heavy. My parents were poor, so I chose to 
attend a small Christian school where I might earn part of my 
way. James* first school year cost about $500.00 but he said 
he had a great time. My expenses amounted to hardly $1 25.00. 
I also had a great time, but in a different way. 

James chose to keep company with a club of "jolly good 
fellows," and developed a taste for tobacco, wine, and fast so- 
ciety. He never returned to school, but during vacation married 
and lived only a short time, in sin and disgrace. He lies in 
his grave as a result of a fast and dissipated life. In the school 
which I attended I was in touch with Christian teachers, and 
with a class of poor, yet conscientious, hard-working students. 
That summer I worked and saved money with which to attend 
school the next year. Endeavoring to obtain a college educa- 
tion, while at the same time working my way, I find is very 
difficult, but in many respects is very pleasant and profitable. 

One of my first experiences was learning the baker's trade. 
I worked without salary for two hot summer months in the 
bakery. At two o'clock in the morning I began work, setting 
sponge, mixing dough, building fires, greasing pans, and de- 
livering bread, in order to learn how to bake. This prepared 

Page ten 



International Service 




Effective Leadership 



me to take the bakery at school the next year. The next 
summer I worked at carpentry. 

"Having known that school was to be moved to a new 
location and to be established on a larger scale, I was prepared 
to be of the greatest possible assistance and at the same time 
increase my earning capacity. Thus I have been able to pay 
a large share of my school expenses while at the same time 
learning something which would be of advantage to me in after 
life. Doing things while in school inspires confidence to at- 
tempt still greater things on going out into the world and 
to accomplish them more successfully. Not only have I re- 
ceived an education mentally, but my hands have been trained 
to work, and my inner life has been changed for the better. 

"I have had demonstrated repeatedly that 'man's ex- 
tremity is God's opportunity.* At times when I have gone to 
the limit and the way seemed closed, I have trusted God and 
he has always helped me to surmount difficulties. When on 
the mountain top I can look back and know of a truth that 
* every cloud has a silver lining.' Many of the most formidable 
obstacles have been my greatest blessings in disguise. 

"At the Southern Junior College I have received a new 
vision of life. 

— T. R. Huxtable.

The College and Its Future 

As will be seen from the panorama insert, but two of the 
five main buildings are up. Even these are not complete, 
but are merely finished sufficiently for the students to live 
in them. The school is trying to adhere strictly to a cash 
policy and therefore has very little indebtedness. That which it 
has, has been brought about entirely through forced purchase 
of land and absolutely necessary development of the plant. 

We are using as a temporary dining hall the basement 
of the girl's dormitory which eventually will be used as a 
supervised study hall. The woodwork laboratory is in the 
same kind of room in the boy's dormitory. We are heating 
the big buildings by separate heating plants. 

To cut down our operating expense to the lowest possible 
amount it therefore becomes necessary to finish the plant as 
quickly as possible. Our needs expressed in a few words are 
as follows: 

Administration Building 

Plans have already been matured for the administration 
building, and $20,000 is now available. This building is of 
sufficient size to provide room for all our laboratories, audi- 
torium, library, and class rooms, and will cost complete $70,000. 
This should be erected and ready for use by the opening of 
the school year in September. Present conditions make it 
hard to carry on the class of work we desire. 

Industrial Building 

Located as the institution is in the heart of the mountains, 
we have a great opportunity for the development of industries 
of every nature. We already have a good course in printing. 
The shop is being equipped with modern machinery, and it is 
expected that quite a number of the young people will be 
able not only to learn the art of printing but also to pay their 
entire way through school by work which will be produced 
in the shop. 

With the immense amount of building of frame construc- 
tion that the school is doing, there comes a demand on us for 

Page fifteen 




International Service N|J# Effective Leadership 



proper woodwork machinery. With this machinery we will be 
able to save the institution from $10,000 to $20,000 by getting 
out all finishing material ourselves. The woodwork shop is par- 
tially equipped at the present time. On a window-screen job 
for one of the dormitories, the shop saved the school over $400. 
This industrial building, properly equipped, will cost $25 ,000. 

Dining Hall 

In order to economize in the building of the plant, we 
have made our dormitories duplicates of each other. The 
dining hall, kitchen, bakery, and store rooms, suitably equipped 
for handling the student body, will cost $25,000. 

Central Heating Plant 

Properly to heat an institution of this size we must have a 
central heating plant. It is estimated that the cost of the 
boiler house, equipped for heating the school and furnishing 
steam to the laundry, will be $25,000. 

Basket Factory and Vaneer Plant 

We are in great need of more means of providing indus- 
tries that will enable students to work their way through school. 
We are in a section of the country where it is easy to get lumber 
for veneer and basket work. The school already has a start 
in this direction, but it is necessary to build a plant for this 
work and put in a proper switch to the railroad. This will 
cost us, equipped and ready to run, $15,000. 

Improvement of Campus 

As yet nothing has been done for the improvement of the 
campus. To provide roads, sidewalks, parkings, and lawns 
will cost $10,000. 

Teacherages and Student Cottages 

It is absolutely necessary that the school provide teacher- 
ages, also student cottages in which young married couples 
can live while earning their way through school. At present 
all these are housed in temporary cottages which are any- 
thing but desirable for long use. The lowest possible estimate 
on these buildings will be $30,000.

International Service \$# Effective Leadership 



Endowment, Equipment, and 
Expansion 

The sum of the immediate needs of the Southern Junior 
College is $500,000. In listing these needs we have put down 
just those which should be met immediately to maintain 
efficiently the standards of the institution. It will be noted 
that in making up this list we have not asked for one dollar 
with which to pay current expenses. Through the contri- 
butions of those interested in the work of this school it has 
been able thus far to incur no debt in operating. The insti- 
tution feels that if it can have the proper equipment in labora- 
tories and industries, and can secure the assistance provided 
by the endowment, it can make this school entirely self-sup- 
porting. Reduced to the lowest terms this will be as follows: 

Establishing adequate endowment $ 250,000 

Necessary land and buildings 200,000 

Equipment of laboratories and industries 25,000 
Liquidation of indebtedness incurred solely 
through purchase of property and 

development of the plant 25,000 



Total $ 500,000

WHAT OTHER EDUCATORS SAY

A UNIQUE GRADUATION HALL 

The new dairy barn has been finished and the hay mow 
provided a hall 36 X 110, — the largest room at the school. 
By unanimous consent this lowly chamber was used for the 
graduation exercises last year. The class felt it a great honor 
to commence their life work amid such humble surroundings. 
There was a great Teacher centuries ago — the greatest the 
world has ever seen — who began his work in an even more 
lowly place than this — in the manger of a Judean stable. If 
there could be any such comparison between the after lives 
of our students and the Master Teacher that there is between 
the places where they began their work we shall be more than 
satisfied.

Transitions 




"Transition" is the word of the hour at Collegedale. 
From the old log barn above, found on the place when we 
came, we have made the transition to the new, modernly 
equipped, dairy barn shown below. The main barn is 36 X 110 
with wing 36 X 70 for feeding stable. Stanchion room for 
44 cattle will be provided in the light airy basement. Silage 
is provided by two 100 ton silos.

Above is the old blacksmith shop found on the farm. 
It was used for three years as a place to do all the blacksmith 
and garage work. Imagine the joy of all when it was torn 
down and in its place grew the fine shop shown below where 
young men can learn the mechanical trades, a knowledge of 
which is so necessary all over the world.

To Whom It May Concern: 

We take pleasure in stating that we have had 
business dealings and personal acquaintance, for a good 
many years, with the Southern Junior College of Ooltewah, 
Hamilton County, Tennessee. We have observed its progress 
and growth in this community, and we are pleased to testify 
to the good work that it is doing in the education of 
young men and women* 

• This institution has a large investment in 
real estate, and has spent approximately $300,000.00 in 
improvements, consisting of dormitory, school buildings, 
dairy barn, etc, , and in our opinion has every prospect 
for a bright future before it. 

The present -enrollment, we understand, is 
approximately two hundred and twenty- five students. The 
faculty in charge of this institution are men of the highest 
character and ability and take the front rank in their pro- 
fession. 

We feel sure that anyone who assists in further- 
ing this enterprise will render valuable service to the 

community. 

Very truly your 3, 




VICE PRESIDENT

TO WHOM PRESENTED: 

I have represented, professionally, the 
Southern Junior College, Inc. , for several years, lo- 
cated near Ooltewah, Hamilton County (Formerly James 
County) Tennessee, and have had ample opportunity to 
observe the manner of men behind the institution and 
the character of work it is accomplishing and the plane 
for enlarged usefulness. 

This College owns in fee 700 acres of real 
estate, highly fertile, and well adapted to agricultural 
and dairy purposes. 

At the present there are two dormitories, 
with accommodations for about 100 students in each; a 
large dairy barn with a capacity to take oare of about 
50 cows is nearing completion. 

Including the real estate and present im- 
provements about $300,000,00 in cash has been invested. 
Further improvements are contemplated that will swell 
the investment to about $500,000.00. 

The College Management puts much stress on 
industrial education. About 100 students are now working 
their way through soilage, being engaged in agricultural 
pursuits on the farm. The present enrollment is some- 
thing like 335 students. 

The faculty is composed of earnest, capable 
teachers. Every endeavor is being made to develop boys 
and girls, to build character and to fit them for splendic 
citizenship, I am firmly of the opinion that the institu- 
tion is one of great merit and should be given every 
possible aid and encouragement. 

Yours very truly,
