I OLD MARVVILLE
rrTHE COLLEGE WE LOVE
^^^ was founded in 1819. It was
born of the moral and spiritual
needs of the earliest settlers of
East Tennessee^chiefly Scotch-
Irish Presbyterians— and was de=
signed to educate for the minis-
try men who should be native to
the soil. The grand motive of the
founder may be stated in his own
words: "Let the Directors and
Managers op this sacred Insti-
tution PROPOSE the glory OF GOD
AND THE ADVANCEMENT OF THAf
KINGDOM PURCHASED RY THE BliOOD
OF His only begotten Son as
THEIR SOLE OBJECT.". Inspired by
such a motive, Rev. Isaac Ander-
son, D. D , gathered a class of
five in the fall of 1819, and in
prayer and faith began ttie work
of his life. In forty-two years
. the institution put one hundred
and fifty men in the ministry. Its
endowment, gathered by littles
— ^irough all these years, was only
sixteen thousand dollars.

Then came the Civil War, and
suspended the work of the insti-
tution for five years, and the Col-
lege came out of the general
wreck with little save its good
name and precious history.
After the war the Synod of Ten-
nessee, moved by the spirit of
self-preservation and by a desire
to promote christian education
in the Central South, resolved to
revive Maryville College. The
institution was reopened in 1866.
New grounds and new buildings
were an imperative necessity. At
this juncture Providence raised
up Rev. T. J. Lamar to be the
second founder of the College ;
by his assiduous labors sixty-five
thousand dollars were secured
and Maryville College saved from

of one hundred thousand dollars.
The College was also made one of
twenty equal participants in the
residuary estate, and has receiv-
ed the greater part of the two
'hundred and fifty thousand dol-
lars to which it is entitled by the
provisions of the will. This mag-
nificent donation has enabled the
institution to enlarge its work
and to enter upon a new era of
usefulness and influence.
About seventy of the post bel-
lum alumni have entered the min-
istry while twenty-one have gone
as foreign missionaries to fields
in Japan, Si am, Korea, India,
Persia, and Africa Several are
laboring in missions in the west.

The Young Men's Christian As-,

College who acknowledge Jesus
Christ as their Teacher and Sav-

The Y. M. C. A. of Maryville

1877. The idea was first suggest-
ed by John A. Silsby to James
B. Porter. These went to S. T.
Wilson, and decided to push the
matter. A meeting of students
was called in the chapel March 2,
at which twenty were present;
they decided to organize at once.

A STORY OF STUDENT PLUCK
It all originated in the brain
of the little Japanese student,
ICin Takahashi, 9d, and the plans
that he formulated wei-e so en-
thusiastically -accepted by the
students and have been worked
out so strccessfully that the Bart-
lett Hall Building Association
is known far and wide. •
In the spring of ^95 the faculty
gave Kin permission to hold a
mass meeting of the students to
consider plans and methods for
raising money to secure a Y. M.
C. A. and Gymnasium Building,
As a result the students organiz-
ed themselves into an association
with Kin as president and to so-
licit funds, xlt the organization
$1200 were contributed by the
students and faculty. That sum-

Having made the good begin-
ning thro self-denying efforts of
the students and of friends near
by, Kin set out to seek help from
other friends. In the fall and
winter he solicited funds in the
North, and in the summer of '96
the foundation was laid.
Lack of funds now stopped the
work; but Kin again sought dis-
tant help. He carried the story
of the earnestness of the students ;
he showed the picture of a foun-
dation ready for the walls that
should shelter the religious soci-
eties and foster health and
strength of the students. Such
liberal subscriptions were receiv-
ed that when he returned in the

Is photography a field sport?
We say yes. There is'nt any-
thing that will do you so much
good either as lugging a camera
*%iHL»ss country, 'long streams and
■over mountains; and you never
saw a place where you had as
many chances to use one as you
will find here. Bring a camera,
•either Buy, Boreow or Bum it;
foufc BRING it.
Nothing contributes so much to
the success of a student affair of
any kind as good student music.
We have it. Several live rival
organizations keep everything
moving. The orchestra, Mr. G.
W. Henry, '01, Leader, will be an
undoubted success. Several va-
cancies are to be filled. Do you
play the the flute, bassoon,
French horn, or claronet? Just
tell Mr. Henry about it.
The McTeer Peerless Concert
Band has helped both the college

band, ably directed by H. T.
Hamilton, '02 and C. W. Henry,
'01. These men have made it
the popular organization that it
is. Vacancies in claronets and
piccolos are to be filled. Can't
you bring yours down with you?
