The Founding of Ohio

Wesleyan

OHIO Wesleyan University was founded

in 1842 under the patronage of the

Methodist Episcopal Church. In 1841

Charles Elliott, Joseph M. Trimble and

W. P. Strickland drove from Urbana, Ohio

to Delaware, Ohio, to look at the grounds and

hotel building which the citizens of the latter

place had offered to the Methodist Church

for college purposes.

When the three preachers returned to the

seat of the Methodist conference, only one

of them had enough money with which to

pay for the carriage in which they made the

journey; and Dr. Trimble made the first

contribution to the University by paying the

expenses of that historical visit.

Dr. Elliott's speech portraying the possibili-

ties of a college for Ohio Methodism awak-

ened great enthusiasm and led the conference

to accept the gift of the citizens of Delaware

and to undertake to launch a university upon

faith.

Pioneer Days

IN 1842 Delaware was a village of 900 in-

habitants, away from the lines of travel

and commerce. There were no railroads

in the state and but few good pikes. In bad

weather it took the tri-weekly stage a whole

day to plow its way hither from Columbus.

There were no street lights and

on dark nights pedestrians had

to carry lanterns.

A Child of Faith

Columbus, now the closest large city, was

a straggling town of western type, with a

population of 6048, while Cleveland, now the

nation's fifth city, could just muster 6070.

Mansion House and Sulphur

Spring at Delaware

OHIO Wesleyan owes its location, if not

its establishment, to the famous White

Sulphur Spring in Delaware. In order

to accomodate tourists and seekers after

health, two enterprising citizens in 1833

erected a fine hotel on a spacious lot embrac-

ing the spring. This hotel soon became known

to the citizens of Delaware and to tourists

as the Mansion House.

On account of the sparsely settled

state and the difficulties of traveling, it

seemed advisable in 1841 to give

up the idea of establishing a

western watering-place. The

spring property being thus

brought into the market, it was

suggested by Rev. Adam Poe,

the Methodist Pastor in Dela-

ware, that the citizens should

purchase it and

offer it as a site

for a Methodist

college. This sug-

gestion led to the

establishment of

a great

univer-

sity.

80 Years of Education

THE founders of Ohio Wesleyan were stalwart pioneers who felt

the need of an institution that would develop in the youth of

their day a scholarly mind and a strong character.

Education supplemented with Character Building has been the

unswerving aim and ideal of the University for all these years.

That impress has been left upon the minds of more than 30,000

young men and women since 1842.

In addition to mental training every youth entering the Univer-

sity has his spiritual, physical and social welfare carefully guarded

and developed. Ohio Wesleyan's gift to civilization is a group of strong

upstanding, God-fearing men and women--youths trained intellec-

tually, inbred with a high moral sense and equipped physically to

meet the demands of life.

Training the Youths of Today for

A Liberal Education

OHIO Wesleyan is a college of liberal arts that affords its students

a broad, cultural education. Its practice is to prepare men

and women for the responsibility of citizen-ship that they may fill

with credit any post to which they may be called and master with

facility any problem with which they are confronted.

Instead of directing the minds of its students into narrow, techni-

cal pursuits, Ohio Wesleyan provides a liberal education that frees

the mind of the limitation of special interests and makes it alert,

wide ranging and resourceful.

Such training fits men and women to deal with the difficult and un-

expected problems of life and business and instills into them many

things that a strictly professional training will not. For example:

(a) Open mind, (b) Judicial Temper, (c) Resourcefulness in sum-

moning related facts, (d) Breadth of Appreciation, (e) Orderly ar-

rangement of facts and thoughts, (f) Clear presentation in good

English.

the Responsibilities of Tomorrow

Cultural Training as a Foundation

WITH broad cultural training as a foundation, men will become

better engineers, better business men, better teachers, lawyers,

doctors, ministers, farmers and citizens, than they who cramp the

first development of the mind in narrow, technical pursuits.

A broad viewpoint once acquired, will last a lifetime. If a man wants to

be an engineer, by all means, let him get a liberal arts training, in whole or in

part before taking up the technicalities. By so doing, he will think more

clearly, write more accurately and speak more convincingly. This will enable

him to get his proposition before the public in better form and take and keep

for himself the place in the community to which his training entitles him.

To keep abreast of the times, Ohio Wesleyan has supplemented the cultural

studies, such as the Classics, Literature, Philosophy and the Languages with

the Arts and Sciences demanded by conditions of modern civilization.

The following list outlines the Departments of Instruction and College

Courses that constitute the University:

Business Administra- Sciences Social Sciences

tion Botany--8 courses Economics--7 courses

Education Physics--9 courses History-- 33 courses

English Engineering--11 Political Science-- 10

Preparation for Life

Character Building at Ohio Wesleyan

PREPARATION of young men and women for life as well as

occupation has been a steadfast policy of Ohio Wesleyan since

1842. She has always recognized and met the great responsibility

that rests upon a University in directing its students through the

four critical and formative years of life. Ohio Wesleyan has so con-

sistently taught straight living as well as straight thinking that she

has often been called "The Character Moulder."

Personal Contact Between Faculty and Students

REALIZING the powerful influence that a professor exerts upon

the life of his students, the University has always fostered close

paternal contact between faculty and undergraduates. That policy

necessarily carries with it smaller classes and an aim to give the same

grade of instruction to freshmen and sophomores as to juniors and

seniors: A quality rather than a quantity production.

Daily Chapel

DAILY Chapel service is an important and unique part of student

life at Ohio Wesleyan. Two things stand out clearly in this dis-

tinctive exercise:--it encourages fellowship, solidarity and a demo-

cratic spirit.

As well as Occupation

This is one time at which all students congregate. As they throng

through the corridors before and after the Chapel Service, there

is a wholesomeness and frankness that is created by reason of this

daily mingling together. In the second place, the ideal thing is put

before them continuously and in the highest form. Even though

attendance is compulsory, the atmosphere is devotional and the pre-

sentation of the ideal things of life is made in such a simple and

superior way as to meet the approval of all types of minds.

Other Religious Activities

ALTHOUGH attendance is voluntary, the great interest that

students take in other religious activities reflects the intense

moral earnestness of these young people--The best professors in the

University lead the Sunday Bible School Classes for students. The

effort is to find and effectively interpret the Scriptures in their prac-

tical bearing upon every day life.

The Consecration Services, held twice a year; Consultation with

students on religious and life problems; The Merrick Lectures on

Experimental and Practical Religion; The Y.M.C.A.; The Y.W.C.

A.; The Student Volunteer Band composed of students who are

preparing for service in the mission field, are all making a mighty

impress upon the minds of Ohio Wesleyan's young people.

Ohio Wesleyan Provides a Well Balanced Education.

Keen Minds

A SCHOLARLY mind, a clean character, and a strong body is the

heritage with which all conscientious and well-meaning students are

endowed by Ohio Wesleyan.

During the past eighty years, the University has given to civilization

more than 30,000 young men and women equipped physically for lives of

strenuous work--an army of Doers as well as Thinkers.

Physical Education

THE University Course, Gymnasium work and athletics are all part of

the Department of Physical Education.

The University Course prepares men and women to teach athletics,

gymnastics and playground activities in Colleges, High Schools, Y.M.

C.A.'s, Y.W.C.A.'s, and many other fields of physical endeavor. Ohio

Wesleyan has the best equipment in Ohio for this class of work, and its

graduates are able to compete with Physical Directors trained in specialized

schools.

In Strong Bodies

Keeping Entire Student Body Healthy and

Physically Fit

THE Director of Physical Education is not only an able Physical Direc-

tor but an experienced Physician who has built his department with

the object of bettering the student's health while educating him physically.

The aim of the Department is to bring the entire student body to a high

standard of physical fitness rather than the development of a few stars.

Physical defects are cured, muscles are co-ordinated and students are

taught the value of recreation. Boys and girls are taught health habits that

prove invaluable in after life.

The head of this department is ably assisted by capable leaders for

gymnasium classes and well known coaches for the several branches of

athletics.

An opportunity for all students to participate in some branch of athlet-

ics, compulsory gymnasium work, periodical physical examination of

students, supervision of student living conditions, consultation with

Director of Physical Education

(a Physician) are several of the

many ways in which Ohio

Wesleyan guards the physical

welfare of its students.

A Student Today

Helping the Student Find Himself

TO prevent the groping and floundering that often follows the sudden

transition from student life to the responsibilities of business life, Ohio

Wesleyan has adopted a definite policy of vocational guidance.

The Dean or Professor with whom the student has been so closely

associated during the most important years of life preparation, exerts a

powerful influence in shaping the future of the student. The Professor

during this formative period plays the important role of Teacher, Guide

and Friend. This personal contact is the saving grace of college life and a

powerful inspiration for the future.

Consultation with Deans and Professors for vocational guidance is

supplemented with business lectures to undergraduates by Ohio Wesleyan

Alumni and other prominent business men brought to Delaware for that

purpose. Added to these helps, the University conducts psychological

examinations to determine the mental aptitude of its students.

Ohio Wesleyan gives studied attention to the mind, the heart, the body,

and the future of every student within her walls--a well balanced train-

ing that develops youths of promise into men and women of prominence.

Personal contact between Professors and Students is the saving grace of college

JOHN WASHINGTON HOFFMAN

PRESIDENT

The Faculty of Ohio Wesleyan University

"ESSENTIAL as are buildings, elaborate equipment, and a beautiful

campus, much more so is a faculty composed of instructors of high

ideals, vigorous religious life, and attractive personality.

In Ohio Wesleyan we insist on skill in instruction, enthusiasm for culture,

devotion to learning, the pursuit of scholarship. We do not forget that

comradeship of life in class and on campus, and intimacy of contact be-

tween student and professor are indispensable.

The final problem with Ohio Wesleyan is a human one--scholars of

high moral purpose, minds trained to perceive the great religious values,

personality that is consecrated to the making of a better world.

At Ohio Wesleyan we insist that every instructor shall aim not only at

the development of high intellectual life and well balanced technical skill,

but also the realization of the most intelligent Christian ideal for every

student."

JOHN W. HOFFMAN.

Student Life

THE city of Delaware is comparatively small with a population of nine

thousand, and is largely dominated by the University life. The clean,

healthful atmosphere in which Ohio Wesleyan students live is that created

by themselves and would be impossible if the University were located in

a large city. THe lack of diverting influences engenders a democratic good-will and

heartiness among the students and creates an enduring class and college Spirit.

At Ohio Wesleyan there is a right balance between the delightful social life of the

Campus, the activities and amusements that go hand in hand with youth, and the

seriousness of the student's work. To develop individuality, executive ability and self-

reliance, the University encourages many student activities outside the regular cur-

riculum--Student Government, Athletics, College Publications and various societies,

Clubs and organizations.

Student Government and Honor Court

AN organization of the student body for self-government has been formed which

expresses its will through a Student Council in matters affecting the general

student interests. The Student Council has legislative functions while the Honor

Court is the judicial body which attends to all violations of the Honor Code.

Self-government by the women of the University is accomplished through the

Women's Student Government Association. It has legislative and executive power

in matters pertaining to decorum, exercise, and social life. The positive and constructive

end which the University seeks to attain in its college government is to impress its spirit

and ideals upon the young men and women who enter its halls, and to constitute them a

self-governing body.

And Activities

Athletics

THE aim of the department of physical education to make the entire

student body physically fit rather than to develop a few star athletes,

has increased rather than decreased, Ohio Wesleyan's prowess in all

branches of athletics.

While many schools, by special effort, have been able to develop one or two branches

of sports to a high standard, Ohio Wesleyan's policy has permitted her to put into the

field, year after year, strong teams in all major and minor sports--football, basketball

and track, tennis, gymnasium team and swimming team. To furthur encourage mass

rather than individual athletic training the University has many intra-mural contests

in all branches of sports between its classes, fraternities and clubs.

An Enviable Record

IT is interesting to know that in 1892 Ohio Wesleyan participated in and won the

first intercollegiate football game played in Ohio, the first college soccer game in

Ohio in 1914 and the first Ohio intercollegiate swimming match in 1917. Ohio

Wesleyan has won four State Football Championships and three in Basketball. Besides

winning the state relay championship three times in four years, she holds the state

record in two events.

Ohio High School Basketball Tournament

at Delaware

BELIEVING that clean sports breed American victories for the future through

the training in judgment and avoidance of blunders that they give to participants,

Ohio Wesleyan each year conducts the Ohio High School Basketball Tournament

in her spacious gymnasium. In fourteen years this event has grown from 6 High School

teams to 160 Teams and state-wide interest has increased proportionately.

tion open to all undergraduates.

The Ohio Wesleyan Transcript--Established in 1866, the official publica-

tion of the students of the University. Issued weekly by a board of edi-

tors appointed after a literary competition.

Fraternities, Clubs and Organizations for All

ABOUT half of the men in the student body belong to the thirteen

National Greek letter fraternities, while others belong to the Commons

Club and the Ohio Wesleyan Union.

Each of these organizations has its own house where its members live during the

four years of college life. Democracy is the keynote of the success of fraternity life at

Ohio Wesleyan and membership is valued more for association and companionship

than as a social distinction.

There are special organizations for different Departments of Instruction--Science

Clubs, the English Writer's Club, The Histrionic Club, The Philosophical Club, The

Alliance Francais, The Spanish Club, The Oxford Club for prospective ministers, etc;

also four honorary fraternities organized to keep up the standards of oratory, gym-

nastics, journalism and music.

Ohio Wesleyan is one of 89 leading American Colleges that has been granted a

Chapter of Phi Beta Kappa.

Each year at Recognition Chapel, the last chapel service of the year, undergraduates,

alumni and friends listen breathlessly to hear the names of those who, by excellence in

scholarship, have won the right to wear the key of this most ancient of fraternities.

Ohio Wesleyan in National Life

THE country looks to its Universities and Colleges to produce men

trained for leadership--not only industrial, but moral, social and physi-

cal leadership.

For 80 years Ohio Wesleyan has contributed to the Country and the

World this well balanced trained leadership. Thirty thousand of her sons

and daughters have inscribed the name "Ohio Wesleyan" high on the re-

cord of professional, commercial, industrial and spiritual accomplishments.

Ohio Wesleyan's unswerving purpose is to graduate young men and

women of light and leading, of good character and impassioned devotion

to high ideals--graduates who have the ability to serve, as well as the will

to serve.

Ohio Wesleyan's Contribution to Public Education

RUSKIN says: "There is only one cure

for public distress and that is public

education." To provide public edu-

cation, schools, colleges and universities

need more and better teachers. During

its 80 years of public service Ohio Wes-

leyan has given the world thousands of

men and women taught to teach.

She has provided thirty College and

University Presidents to such well known

schools as Penn. State, Uni-

versity of Kentucky, Univer-

sity of Nevada, Armour In-

stitute, De Pauw, Miami,

Ohio Northern, Iowa Wes-

leyan, Kansas Wesleyan and

others equally well known.

This educational influence

has extended to many for-

eign countries; one conspicu-

ous example being Peking

University, China, where

President Hiram H. Lowry,

'67 has exerted a powerful

influence for good in the Far

East.

Over 400 Ohio Wesleyan

Alumni are deans or Pro-

fessors in Colleges and Uni-

versities; upwards of 200 are

High School Principals and

more than 1200 are teachers

in grade and high schools.

Ohio Wesleyan's Contribution to the Church

IN Methodism, Ohio Wesleyan is aptly called "The

Mother of Bishops." After Luccock and McCabe,

great men whose light still shines undimmed, come

Bishops Anderson, Hoss, Hughes, McConnell, McDowell

and Thirkfield. Three of her Presidents, Thompson,

Bashford and Welch, have been elevated to the episcopacy.

For many years the late Bishop Bashford directed all

Methodist missionary work in China, while Ex-President

Welch is now Bishop of Korea and Japan.

John R. Mott says that Ohio Wesleyan has sent out

more missionaries than any other American co-educational

school, yet only one-fifth of her students are preparing for

religious work. The number of theological students fur-

nished by the college is not surpassed by any other school.

The University has given the Church upwards of one

thousand ministers of the Gospel; three hundred Foreign

Missionaries and hundreds of trained workers to the Y.

M.C.A., Y.W.C.A., and other religious organizations.

These Christian characters have made the name of

America blessed in the far corners of the Earth through

the message of human sympathy they bore and the lives

of service they lived.

Ohio Wesleyan in Political and

Official Life

OHIO Wesleyan has admirably met the ever present

demand for virile, upstanding, God-fearing men in

public life.

As Senator from Indiana and Vice-President of the

United States, the late Charles Warren Fairbanks, class

of 1872, was an exemplar of the Ohio Wesleyan tradition

of straight thinking and straight living--qualities so neces-

sary in steering our Nation through its great crises into

normal, well ordered life.

Ohio Wesleyan has the creditable record of providing

such distinguished men as Herrick, Pattison and Foraker

to serve a total of five terms as Chief Executive of Ohio;

in addition to Governors for six other states--Hamilton of

Illinois, Elbert of Colorado, Atkinson of West Virginia,

Hoyt of Wyoming, Cosgrove

of Washington and Steele,

the first Governor of Okla-

homa.

At least a dozen of the

alumni have been elected to

the United States Senate and

House of Representatives,

while many more have

rendered distinguished ser-

vice as Ambassadors, Minis-

ters and Consuls in the foreign

service.

The record of Herrick in

France and Whitlock in Bel-

gium is typical of the Con-

sular Service that her sons

Ohio Wesleyan Prominent in

Many Lines of Endeavor

OHIO Wesleyan Alumni have not only distinguished

themselves in Education, Religion and Politics, but

they have an enviable record of accomplishments

in the fields of Business, Law, Journalism, Medicine and

other Professions.

Even an incomplete analysis of Wesleyan Alumni

indicates 1485 successfully engaged in business enterprises

such as Manufacturing, Banking, Engineering and Con-

struction; 721 in Medicine and 209 in Agriculture. Space

will not permit an enumeration in the hundreds who have

reached the top of the ladder in these several fields of

endeavor.

In addition to 404 alumni engaged in the practice

of Law, Ohio Wesleyan has supplied her own state with

two Attorney-Generals and a Chief Justice; the United

States with a Judge of the Supreme Court of Appeals;

Idaho with a Chief Justice of Supreme Court, Colorado

and Indiana with Judges of the Supreme Court.

Besides the 228 in Government Service, 60 alumni are

serving as Public Lecturers, Singers, Dramatists and Ac-

tors. Of the 200 in Journalism, several are editors of

Christian Advocates; Dr. George Gould of the Medical

Journal; E. J. Wheeler, Editor of Current Opinion; W. F.

Bigelow, Editor of Good Housekeeping; Stella V. Roderick,

formerly Associate Editor of Everybody's, now Editor of

The Woman Citizen; Edward Keen is Manager of the

United Press for Europe and Melville E. Stone is inter-

nationally known as President of the Associated Press.

In the invention of the telephone, one of the greatest

contributions to modern progress, Prof. A. E. Dolbear,

class of 1866, is generally assigned a place as co-inventor

with Alexander Graham Bell.

In the development of X-Ray Photography, now so

necessary in diagnosis and surgery, H. Clyde Snook,

class of 1900, has played a most important part.

No record of alumni accomplishments would be com-

plete without including the name and good works of Frank

Wakeley Gunsaulus, class of 1875. In his dual role as

Pastor of the Central Con-

gregational Church of Chi-

cago and the founder and

President of the Armour In-

stitute, Chicago, he qualifies

as one of Ohio Wesleyan's

distinguished men in both

religious and educational

work. In Charles E. Jefferson,

Pastor of Broadway Taber-

nacle, New York City, the

Congregational Church has

fallen heir to another noted

alumnus.

Ohio Wesleyan

The School of Music

THE School of Music was established as part of Ohio Wesleyan in 1877

and has filled an important place in the University from that time to

the present. It is a complete school of Musical Culture and Learning.

Its scope has been enlarged to meet the needs of a growing institution and

the increasing importance of music in education.

The school is organized to serve two types of students--those who

expect to make music their vocation, and those seeking to broaden their

general culture. The Course covers theoretical and applied music in both

instrument and voice. In all musical work thoroughness of preparation

rather than superficial brilliance is encouraged.

With musical traditions and accomplishments extending back over 45

years--with a hundred students pursuing the full course in music and two

hundred twenty-five taking music in some form or another, is it any won-

der that the spirit of music permeates the entire student body. On the

campus, in the fraternities, at the games or wherever young folks assemble,

Ohio Wesleyan music is ever present and in demand.

Student Musical Organizations

THE Men's Glee Club at Ohio Wesleyan has a local, state and even

a national reputation. It gives entertainments at the University, in

Ohio and neighboring states during vacations and week-ends. This Glee

Club in competition with the Clubs of Harvard, Yale and Princeton, was

selected by the United States Government for a trip to Panama Canal

Zone last summer. The Choral Club, a similar organization among the

women, gives an annual concert in Gray Chapel. The varsity male quartet

makes long tours and during the summer has been booked by Chautau-

qua Circuits.

The Ohio Wesleyan Band of 40 pieces is known throughout the state and

is especially prominent at games played in Delaware and at neighboring

colleges.

Membership in the several musical organizations is competitive, and

weekly training is given by

members of the faculty in the

School of Music.

The programs of the Glee

and Choral Clubs offer oppor-

tunity for the entire student

body to hear the finest music

and to participate in its per-

formance.

Ohio Wesleyan on the Platform

School of Oratory

"WE would rather beat Ohio Wesleyan than any other school," wrote

Harvard Debate Coach to Professor Marshman on the eve of the

Ohio Wesleyan-Harvard Debate in March 1922. Wesleyan won. This

was Harvard's first appearance on an Ohio debating floor, and the state-

ment is typical of the esteem in which Ohio Wesleyan debating teams

have been held for many years. During the past year she has won all ten

debates in which her team has participated; sometimes on one side of the

question and sometimes on the other; against leading colleges and univer-

sities from Harvard, champions of the east, to Occidental, Los Angeles,

champions of the west.

Ohio Wesleyan's students have always received unusual training in the art of public

speech. They are taught to "think on their feet," and "stick to their text." The univer-

sity has insisted that its graduates shall be able to express themselves clearly, convinc-

ingly and logically; a sincere effort is made to develop in every student the power of

persuasive expression.

The value of Debate and Oratory in the student's life work is admirably expressed by

President Hoffman in the following words:

"To be able to think quickly, to organize one's materials hurriedly to meet the state-

ment of an opponent, to perceive clearly the fallacy of a conclusion, this is indispensible

in high achievement. This quality of mind translated in statesmanship, in business, in

medicine, in practical life means everywhere genius and honor and success.

At Ohio Wesleyan we constantly strive to prepare citizens who are competent to

make the best public sentiment, who are wise in moral and social leadership, whose

poise of mind and soul is equal to any emergency. No department contributes more

to this important purpose than our well-organized and splendidly equipped department

of Oratory.

With the completion of the new observatory and the installation of the new telescope, now

under construction, Ohio Wesleyan's Department of Astronomy will rank among the first

three in the World.

Ohio Wesleyan a Co-educational

University

BY reading the preceding pages, the reader has learned that Ohio Wes-

leyan is a Co-educational School. When it was founded in 1842, the

co-education of the sexes in the higher schools of learning was practically

unknown.

Even at that early day the advancing sentiment of the Country was

bringing women more and more prominently, not only into social life, but

into public and responsible positions in the educational, religious, profes-

sional and secular fields of labor. To meet this demand for higher educa-

tion for daughters as well as sons, the Ohio Wesleyan Female College was

established in Delaware in 1853. However, the debate for and against

University Co-education continued for many years, so it was not until

1877 that Ohio Wesleyan Female College became part of Ohio Wesleyan

University, and mixed classes were established. Today Ohio Wesleyan's

attendance of 1600 students is equally divided between men and women.

Historic Old Monnett

MONNETT HALL, the home of the girls attending Ohio Wesleyan,

is the second largest girl's dormitory in the Country. It is a romantic,

ivy covered old building, surrounded by a beautiful campus and shadowed

by stately oaks and tall maples, growing as nature planted them. Pending

the completion of the large girl's dormitory, now under construction, as

a unit of the Monnett group, many of the girls live out in town at the

various cottages, as they are called; yet, the women's life of the University

centers in historic "Old Monnett."

Its halls are hung with prints of the World's great pictures, and contain

many of the University's trophies and Art Treasures. It accommodates

the Y.W.C.A., the Library, many class rooms and the two literary

society halls, decorated in artistic style.

A charter member of the oldest society was Miss Lucy Webb, the first

student in the old Female Academy, and later the wife of President Ruther-

ford B. Hayes. A handsome full length mirror in the main corridor was

presented to Monnett by Mrs. Hayes while she was Mistress of the White

House.

A Co-educational University

The wholesome every day life at Monnett blossoms into impressive

and festive exercises on special occasions and holidays. Every day, three

hundred girls sit down together in the big dining room. One of the mem-

orable occasions is the breakfast on Easter morning, when the girls come

from the sunrise prayer meeting, all in white, two by two, into the dining

room. The tables are gay with ferns and daffodils and at each plate is a

card of greeting from the Y.W.C.A.

On Monnett Day the girls form one long, white procession winding among

the trees to the music of the "Spring Song." Then comes the crowning of

the May Queen, the fantastic festive dances, the pageant, the play and the

May-pole. Imagine the sweetness, the color and the gayety of that day.

School of Fine Arts

ON the right of Monnett Campus we see Lyon Hall with its round,

gray-stone tower. It contains the School of Fine Arts, in which,

besides regular courses in drawing and painting, a special study is made

of home decoration. The rear of the building contains the new labora-

tories for the courses in Home Economics. On the left, is Sanborn Hall,

a model of classical beauty within and without. It is the home of the

School of Music, fully described in other pages of this book.

University Records show that Wesleyan women have made their marks

in all fields of national endeavor and especially in one field that transcends

all others in its glory, its sacredness and its greatness--Home-Making.

3634 of the Alumnae are recorded as Home-Makers.

An Inspiring Message from William F. Anderson,

Bishop of the Methodist Episcopal Church

"By Their Fruits Ye Shall Know Them"

"THE most noteworthy thing about Ohio Wesleyan University is its output of men

and women for practical leadership in the various departments of human activity.

"By their fruits ye shall know them" is a standard of measurement which comes

to us upon the highest authority. Adjudged by this standard the old college at Delaware

stands in the very first rank. her ideals have gone out through all the earth and her men

and women to the end of the world.

Her sons and daughters have won the highest distinction in the classics, in science,

in philosophy, in literature, in the various professions, in business, in statesmanship,

in the Christian ministry and in all forms of social, philanthropic and missionary propa-

ganda.

To know the facts is to stand in admiration and wonderment at the human product

of this institution. I suspect that one of the chief reasons to be given in explanation

of the remarkable success which has attended those who have been trained here is to be

found in the emphasis which has ever been placed upon the cultivation of vital religion

in the program of the University.

The institution itself is a monument to the spirit of sacrifice which has characterized

its progenitors and builders from the beginning. This is really the birthright of Ohio

Wesleyan University which has made it what it is and which is to be cherished now and

through all the future years with unwavering and ever increasing appreciation. Such

institutions are all too few even in America.

An investment in Ohio Wesleyan University is an investment for scholarship, for truth,

for broad culture, for human progress, for world betterment, for the Kingdom of God in

America and to the ends of the earth."

DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

Here's the

Book You've

Been Looking For ---

"A Fountain of Good in the World"

This book has been written to acquaint friends of

Ohio Wesleyan with the important work that this Christian

University is doing, and especially to remind alumni and

former students of the fine traditions, the remarkable

accomplishments, the ideals and aims of their Alma Mater.

The folders that you have received, the consistent

newspaper advertising that has been carried in Ohio papers

and this book are several forms of dignified advertising

that your University is employing to revivify in the minds

of alumni that good old "Wesleyan spirit" that means so

much to all of us.

This educational advertising serves as a foundation

for the active work that is now in progress on the Ohio

Wesleyan Development Program. As this great task calls

for the active support and cooperation of all alumni and

former students, the University feels it desirable that

everyone should have before him a clear up-to-date picture

of the great school for which he is to GIVE AND GET. You

will receive, at an early date, other literature specifi-

cally covering the Development Program.

Sincerely yours,

C. E. Hine
