BUILD YOURSELF A LIVING MONUMENT

An Opportunity For You

To Live On and On and ON

NONE of us like to be forgotten.

From the time of Cheops to the present day men have been

building pyramids and tombs, erecting tablets and headstones to tell

that they are dead, but the man who puts his money into the endow-

ment of a College leaves a memorial to tell that he is alive as long as

the institution stands.

If we want to be remembered and revered through all the years, isn't

it better to endow a university and build for ourselves an imperishable

living monument rather than just a granite one to mark our final

resting place?

Ohio Wesleyan is a living monument

to the financial foresight of her friends;--

a fountain of service to God and Hu-

manity.

We Must Keep This Fountain

Flowing

OHIO Wesleyan University is a fountain of good from which a

perennial stream of national influence has flowed for eighty years.

This fountain was opened in 1942 by stalwart Methodist pioneers

who felt the need of an institution that would develop in the Youth

of their day,--Scholarly minds and strong characters. Education and

character building have been the unswerving aims and ideals of the

University for all these years. The impress of straight thinking and

straight living has been made upon the minds of more than 30,000

young men and women since 1842.

Our Responsibility

TODAY we are face to face with the responsibility of carrying on

the education and character building work that our forefathers

started. Ours is a responsibility to the State, the Nation, and the

World,--a responsibility that can only be discharged by such practical

means as the development of a larger and properly paid faculty; more

and better equipped buildings; a more extensive campus, and many

other requirements so necessary to continue Ohio Wesleyan's eighty

years' record of producing strong, upstanding, God-fearing men and

women.

Down Through the Years

BISHOP McDOWELL tells of an old farmer who, at the close of

the Civil War, bereft of his sons, sat down in a college chapel.

He watched the students file in and had a vision of the long procession

of students through the years.

He said to himself,--"These will go and others will come. The

professors will go and others will take their places. My farm will just

about endow a chair, so I will go home and deed it to the college.

Then, by the Grace of God, I shall be here while the world stands."

What Ohio Wesleyan

Has Done to Merit

Your Support

IF education is the Chief Defense of Na-

tions, Ohio Wesleyan has fully justified

her 80 years' existance, by this enviable

record of her Alumni. She has provided:

1 Vice President 400 University Deans and Pro-

9 Governors fessors

3 U.S. Senators 200 High School Principals

12 U.S. Congressmen 1200 Teachers --Grade and High

15 Foreign Ambassadors Schools

228 Government Service 9 Methodist Bishops

200 Journalists 300 Foreign Missionaries

404 Lawyers 1000 Ministers of the Gospel

721 Physicians 3634 Home makers and thousands

1485 Business Men--Manufactur- of other men and women in

ing, Banking, Engineering and various lines of useful en-

Construction deavor

30 College Presidents

Ohio Wesleyan has sent out more mission-

aries and has furnished more theological

students than any other American co-edu-

cational school, yet only one-fifth of her

students are preparing exclusively for re-

ligious work.

Ohio Wesleyan has always met the de-

mand for virile, upstanding, God-fearing

men and women. Thirty thousand of her

sons and daughters--all fine Christian char-

acters, have made the name of America

blessed in the four corners of the Earth

through the message of human sympathy

they bore and the lives of service they lived.

"More Work

For Less Money"

A WELL-KNOWN American educator

once stated, "Ohio Wesleyan is one of

two colleges which is doing more work on

less money than any similar institution of

learning in the land." To those acquainted

merely with Ohio Wesleyan's achievements,

a statement of her handicaps doubtless comes

as a surprise. The unusual prominence of her

graduates, and her position of leadership in

the church, in education and in national life

have been attained as the result of great

sacrifice, and through operating far above

what could rightfully be expected from her

faculty and equipment.

IT COSTS SOMETHING TO

HAVE UNIVERSITIES, BUT IT

COSTS INFINITELY MORE

NOT TO HAVE THEM. AMER-

ICAN DEMOCRACY WOULD

NOT REST SECURE AS IT

DOES TODAY IF THESE

THOUSANDS OF WESLEYAN

LEADERS HAD NOT DEVOTED

TO THEIR COUNTRY AND

THE WORLD THE FRUITS OF

THEIR COLLEGE TRAINING.

What Ohio Wesleyan Needs

to Continue Her Great Work

TEACHING the fundamental principles of right and wrong, the

moulding of noble characters, the making of men and women, have

been Ohio Wesleyan's principal business for four generations, and with

the help of her friends shall be her objective for as many more.

In doing this great work she has rendered an immeasurable service to

society. In making men and women, the University loses money;

therefore, she must depend upon society to discharge her obligations

by providing funds sufficient to enlarge her service as an educator and

character moulder to a constantly increasing number of young men

and women.

Ohio Wesleyan's situation today might be likened to that of the

fifteen-year-old boy who has suddenly attained the growth and size

of a man. He has outgrown his clothes, they are giving way at the

elbows and knees; and must immediately be replaced by larger ones.

Ohio Wesleyan is rapidly outgrowing her facility, her buildings, her

campus, and all of her facilities are seriously overtaxed.

What the $8,000,000 Program

Will Accomplish

The following chart outlines the specific objects to which the eight

million dollar fund will be applied. Every one represents an actual

necessity and subscribers to the fund are assured that every dollar will

be applied to one of these worthy objects.

Endowment for Ohio Wesleyan is capital securely invested

at a safe rate of interest. The principal is never to be spent.

The income only is to be used for the maintenance of the Uni-

versity.

The Trustees of Ohio Wesleyan are not presenting to friends and the

public, a hasty, extemporaneous and vague scheme, but after long,

careful study, are pleased to offer the Ohio Wesleyan Development

Program, which represents actual needs of the University, that have

grown out of the much enlarged student body, and out of greatly

changed social, economic and educational conditions. No one respon-

sive to the claims of Christian education will fail to find in this plan

one or more specific purposes calling for his or her full support.

TO realize the $8,000,000 Development fund, Ohio Wesleyan Uni-

versity naturally depends upon the active financial support of the

following groups. This is because every one in every group either has

already received, or is now receiving, benefits from this old and fine

Christian University greater in amount than the sum of money we

shall suggest as a minimum to be subscribed.

1 Trustees.

2 Alumni and former students.

3 Faculty.

4 Student Body and Parents of Students.

5 Citizens of Delaware County.

BUILD YOURSELF A LIVING MONUMENT

What These Figures Mean

THE actual cost of educating a student at Ohio Wesleyan in 1921-1922

was, therefore, $330.00, of which the student paid about half, or

$165.00. That means an operating deficit of $165.00 per student per

year;--a total of $268,000.00, for the year 1921-1922 with an attend-

ance of 1623 (which must be provided for by endowment). On this

basis every student who takes the regular four-year course is entitled

to feel that he or she owes the University $660.00 the day the diplomas

are given out.

To further increase students' fees would hinder the very purpose of

this institution of higher learning which is to give the student with

little or no means, as well as the well-to-do and rich, a chance for proper

education. Therefore, the only alternative is to build an endowment

fund with an income sufficient to cover the annual operating

deficit.

Making Men But Losing Money

NO college or University charges students as much as it costs to give

them their schooling. They no more seek to make money than

do our public schools:--the public schools make up their income from

taxes, while the University always has made up its deficiency, and

doubtless always will, from endowment fund income.

Few people realize the great difference between the annual cost of

educating a student and the amount that he pays to the University.

Alumni, present students and parents of students have no conception

of the investment that Ohio Wesleyan makes each year in her boys and

girls, for which no charge can be made.

Alumni To the Rescue

IF the University finances and educates her students during the years

when they have little earning capacity, isn't it reasonable to expect

that the alumni should come to the rescue of their Alma Mater in her

hour of need and greater development?

In order that alumni may clearly visualize the investment made in

them, the following table has been compiled to show the cost of edu-

cating a student for four years compared with the income from that

student.

The computation has been made on the basis of 5 year periods ex-

tending back twenty-five years. All figures were compiled by W. D.

It is a Great Opportunity to Invest

Your Dollars in Wesleyan Deeds

WHEN you invest your dollars in Ohio Wesleyan, their power for

good is not soon exhausted, but they become a living memorial

to yourself. Such an investment pays perpetual dividends to you and

yours and to society in general. A University such as Ohio Wesleyan

is in the forefront of all objects for this type of investment, because it

is a source of benevolence, as well as power. In assisting Ohio Wesleyan

at this critical time, you are providing for the education of all those

who, according to statistics, will improve their chances of acquiring

future wealth, and who, through the inspiration of their Alma Mater

will most probably devote a part of it to many worthy causes.

What Interest Shall I Draw From An Investment

In Ohio Wesleyan?

A PROPER question, and one that should be answered to your

satisfaction, in this inspiring message from William F. Anderson,

Bishop of the Methodist Episcopal Church:

"The most noteworthy thing about Ohio Wesleyan University is its

output of men and women for practical leadership in the various de-

partments 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

other men and women to the end of the world."

OHIO WESLEYAN UNIVERSITY

An Underpaid Faculty--A Dangerous

Condition

A UNIVERSITY is as strong as its faculty. By training the minds

of the young men and women of today, University professors are

moulding the future of the Nation. It is a square deal that these men

shall assume the great responsibility for National character moulding,

yet be paid salaries that scarcely equal the pay of iron moulders in our

foundries?

We ask of the modern professor the exercise of the highest human

attributes--conscience, high thinking, a devotion to high ideals, learn-

ing, constructive talents, and the genius to teach and train the future

leaders of the Nation. His value to the world is incomparable and yet

he is often condemned to scarcity or even poverty, while his students

go out to rewards only limited by ability and effort.

Herbert Hoover declares that: "there is nothing our people should

so generally resent as the fact that their sons and daughters are to

receive the basic formation of their character and intelligence at so

great a sacrifice as is now being imposed on those upon whom we

must depend to create our whole national character."

In attempting to attract the best type of instruction talent to the

University and to uphold the traditionally high standards of education,

Ohio Wesleyan like other denominational colleges, is in direct com-

petition with industry which offers such high salaries to able men.

Even though older professors, through long association with the

University, their keen interest in the work and their loyalty to the

cause of higher education, remain at great sacrifice to themselves and

families, yet the call of business is making serious inroads upon the

ranks of the younger generation of university teachers.

BUILD YOURSELF A LIVING MONUMENT

Is This Good

American Justice?

THERE has recently been much discussion regarding the "living

wage." Whatever it is, we can safely say that some university

professors are not getting it. Unless a professor has an independent

income, or earns some money by writing and other activities outside

of his University work, he often has to travel a rough road financially.

Note well, that the average annual salary of the members of the

Ohio Wesleyan faculty is $2286.00, a wage of about $7.00 per day.

On the other hand, consider those carpenters, bricklayers, plasterers

and other craftsmen whose period of preparation is only a fractional

part of the years required to become a good professor, and yet who

receive $10.00 for an eight-hour day.

The $4,000,000 instruction endowment will enable the trustees of

Ohio Wesleyan to increase the average annual income of her teaching

force from $2286 to $3075.

This university must be more generously supported by men of affairs

with conscience and broad foresight. Not as a matter of charity or

giving but as a broad business enterprise that will help Christian edu-

cation win the race against world disaster.

An Instruction Endowment: The Only Way Out

An endowment of $4,000,000 safely invested will net the University about $200,000

annually, no more than enough to:

(a) Insure the faculty a living wage.

(b) Hold the good professors at Ohio Wesleyan.

(c) Permit Ohio Wesleyan to meet the competition of industry and other Universities,

and thereby hold her own in attracting the highest type of instruction talent.

(d) Permit additions to the teaching force constantly demanded by increased attend-

ance.

Shall Wesleyan's Doors Be Barred to

Students of Moderate Means?

IN "The Bonnie Brier Bush," the schoolmaster says to Drumsheugh:

"Ye think that a'm asking a great thing when I plead for a few

notes to give a puir laddie a college education. I tell ye, man, a'm

honoring ye and givin' ye the fairest chance ye'll ever hae o'winning

wealth."

To further increase students' fees would defeat the basic purpose of

this institution to do the greatest educational good to the greatest

number. The doors of Ohio Wesleyan have been doors of oppor-

tunity to the sort of people the world needs most;--many of these

men and women of extremely moderate means who see in Christian

education a big and precious thing--a chance to render the highest

service to the world.

A Debt That Maturity Owes to Youth

OHIO Wesleyan should not become a select school for sons and

daughters of the rich. This would be contrary to the high pur-

poses of her founders by limiting higher education to a fortunate few.

The request for a scholarship endowment of $400,000 is extremely

modest and when invested at 5% will bring an annual return of only

$20,000. Yet that $20,000 will make it possible for scores of wealthy

young men and women to develop from youths of promise into men and

women of prominence.

Helping Those

Who Help Themselves

THE UNIVERSITY through its

Y.M.C.A. and other agencies

obtains employment for many students

who must partially earn their way

through college. However, great care

must be exercised that this work shall not

develop into undue drudgery or interfere

with the students' scholastic standing.

The University authorities must establish

a proper balance between scholarship

assistance and self support. They take

pains always, since the number whom

they can help in this way is limited, to

afford scholarship aid to those who help

themselves. In asking for scholarship

endowment Ohio Wesleyan is proud to

record the following figures to show what

her ambiticus under-graduates are ac-

tually doing to help themselves.

688 working during the Summer,

earning . . . . . . . 170,254

________

Total . . . . . . . $249,542

In a word, Ohio Wesleyan students help

educate themselves to the extent of over

a quarter million dollars a year. The Uni-

versity asks you to provide scholarship

endowments (in your own name if you

wish) that will produce $20,000 per year

or only 8% of what the students do for

themselves.

We must not forget that these young

people who made these earnings were all

the time carrying their full college work,

and thus earned this money in spare time

only. Without keeping this in mind their

real industry and energy cannot be ap-

preciated.

A Debt That Society Owes Maturity

THE pensions item of $300,000 in the Ohio Wesleyan Development

Program will, when safely invested, insure an annual income of

perhaps $15,000 to be used as a pension fund for retired professors.

This is an object that should strongly appeal to every thoughtful per-

son:--These National Character Moulders often spend a lifetime of

service at salaries that barely permit them to obtain the necessities of

life, let alone, enjoy any of the luxuries.

These devotees to the cause of higher education seldom have an

opportunity to save enough money for the "rainy day." By serving

as teacher, guide and friend to thousands of students they are raising

the seed corn of the world, but are getting little or none of the harvest.

Society demands 100% efficiency from University professors; there-

fore society should

provide funds that

will permit the pay-

ment of living in-

comes during the long

years of service and

insure reasonable re-

tirement allowances

for declining years of

unemployment.

Why Ohio Wesleyan Needs

16 New Buildings

OHIO WESLEYAN has outgrown her faculty, her

buildings, her campus, and all of her facilities

are seriously overtaxed. With its present capacity in

buildings, the University could instruct, without in-

convenience and crowding, between 1000 and 1200 stu-

dents. Imagine then, the cramped conditions under which the school

is now operating with an enrollment of 1650 students.

Sixteen new buildings are absolutely necessary.

1. To properly care for the present excess of students over physical

capacity.

2. To provide additional capacity for increased attendance during

the next ten years.

3. To relieve the present crowded and intolerable conditions.

These new buildings will permit the segregation, the proper organiza-

tion and administration of groups of related departments, with library

reading rooms, class rooms, departmental offices and conference rooms.

Even with its policy of carefully selecting all new students, and its

aim at quality rather than quantity in its student body, Ohio Wesleyan

cannot refuse additional students and thereby shirk the responsibility

that is today thrown upon all institutions of higher learning.

Ohio Wesleyan must have the capacity to take care of the increasing

number who desire her particular type of Christian education.

New Chemistry Building, $250,000, and

New Physics Building, $200,000

To be constructed in order that the University may keep abreast of

modern times in the instruction given in these two sciences which

underlie so much of modern industry.

ELLIOTT HALL

The present physics and engineering building was built in 1833 as

"The Mansion House" to accommodate tourists and seekers after

health. It was the building in which Ohio Wesleyan was started in

1842. Its Century of Service entitles it to a place in the Hall of

Relics. It should immediately give way to a modern building arranged

and equipped for the Engineering Sciences.

STURGES HALL

This is the Chemistry Building which has rendered generations of

service, so that it is no longer good business to spend money repairing

it. Our continued use of it is criticized by state authorities, who fully

agree with us that it ought to be replaced as soon as possible by a

modern building designed for this particular use.

Religion and Missions Building, $100,000

The fact that Ohio Wesleyan has sent out more missionaries and has

furnished more theological students than any other American Co-edu-

cational school, is sufficient justification for her request for funds to

construct a building for courses in religion and missions.

To continue to be the recruiting station for Methodist leaders and to

meet the increasing demands for the Church upon the University,

Ohio Wesleyan must have additional facilities to carry on this impor-

tant branch of her work.

Political Science and Sociology, $150,000

(Business Administration Building)

The demands upon her well organized department of business ad-

ministration by industries who want young men trained in modern

business methods, has automatically increased the number of stu-

dents entering the University for this course. This department is

already taxed to the limit and to continue to operate efficiently should

be provided with a building and equipment of its own.

OHIO WESLEYAN UNIVERSITY

Oratory Building, $100,000

This building wtih its stage and small auditorium will permit Ohio

Wesleyan's Department of Oratory to carry on its great work in ora-

tory, parliamentary law, argumentation and debate, extempore speak-

ing, play production, and its many other useful activities.

The function of this department is exceedingly practical and val-

uable, and gives Ohio Wesleyan students unusual training in the art

of public speech. It has taught them to "think on their feet" and

"stick to their text," qualities so necessary in moulding public senti-

ment and in attaining moral and social leadership.

Recitation Hall, $150,000

Will provide well arranged, quiet class room space and will relieve

present congestion. At the present time parts of the library, and all

available space about the University are used for recitation work,

much of it being poorly arranged and not thoroughly heated and

ventilated. A recitation building will greatly assist the faculty in

scheduling classes and will insure a more uniform meeting place for

various classes than is now possible.

Model Educational Unit, $100,000

During her eighty years of public service Ohio Wesleyan has given

the world thousands of men and women taught to teach. To fill the

actual demand from schools, colleges and universities for more and

better teachers, she needs this building for the proper training of

those preparing for teaching as a life work. This building will permit

the development of a practice high school for the practical training of

teachers. Ohio Wesleyan is conceded to be doing effective work in

this line even with present restricted facilites, but can do much better

work if her handicaps are removed.

Heat, Light and Power Plant, $100,000

A building necessary to supply the University with its own heat,

light and power. The construction of this building will be a measure

of economy, as the saving that it will effect in these items will even-

tually pay for the investment.

A winter day spent in University Hall and Gray Chapel would con-

vince anyone of the necessity for an improved heating and lighting

system. Seventeen furnaces are now necessary to heat this one

building, and the lighting is twenty years behind modern developments.

AUSTIN HALL

Women's Dormitories, $300,000

Austin Hall is now being constructed on Monnett Campus to sup-

plement Historic Old Monnett Hall in providing dormitory accommo-

dations to the women of the University. This building will accommo-

date about 250 girls in addition to the 300 now housed in Monnett.

[image of Watson Hall]

WATSON HALL

Women's Building, $200,000

Watson Hall will be the social center for the women attending Ohio

Wesleyan. It will accommodate the Y.W.C.A., the two literary

societies, the Women's Student Government Association, and many

other organizations that engender a democratic good-will and hearti-

ness among the girls, and create an enduring class and College Spirit.

OHIO WESLEYAN UNIVERSITY

Men's Commons Building, $250,000

The Men's Commons is needed as a social center, to provide offices

for the different undergraduate organizations, and a gathering place

for students and faculty in their free hours, under wholesome environ-

ment. It will provide a central eating place for men and thus insure

hygienic conditions in the preparation and serving of food.

Men's Dormitories

A--$150,000 and B--$150,000

To care for the proper housing of students now scattered in private

houses about town. By bringing students together into larger groups

these buildings will preserve and increase the spirit of democracy and

friendship which is one of the finest experiences of college life.

Campus Extension and Improvement, $150,000

The addition of sixteen new buildings necessitates campus changes,

extensions and considerable landscaping and planting.

Women's Athletic Field

Entirely aside from these campus improvements, is the necessity

for a girls' athletic field and locker-house. At the present time the

girls must use Edwards Gymnasium and the Boys' Athletic Field, which

is a mile from their home at Monnett.

Added to this inconvenience is the difficulty in arranging Gymna-

sium classes and field games so that schedules between girls and boys

will not conflict.

The University now owns 14 acres adjoining Monnett Campus which

will be converted into a Women's Athletic Field for Tennis, Hockey,

Field Sports and other Athletic activities.

Intra-Mural Field

In a body of nearly 2000 young people, those who keep up their

physical condition, and gratify their natural impulse for activity,

by taking part in sports, are many. There are so many that the main

Athletic Field cannot accommodate them, in view of it belonging more

properly to the various contests with visiting teams from other insti-

tutions. The intra-mural field is for our own student body.

To encourage mass rather than individual athletic training the Uni-

versity has many intra-mural contests in all branches of sports between

its classes, fraternities and clubs. An intra-mural field must be pro-

vided to avoid conflicting dates on the main athletic field and to obviate

the necessity of constantly using the Ohio State Guards Armory.

How Much Should I Give?

THIS is a question that comes to the minds of hundreds of Ohio

Wesleyan Alumni and friends.

The same question has had to be answered by hundreds of thousands

of men and women who have helped support American Universities

for the past hundred years. Although some will want to give more

and others will be obliged to and should give less, we believe the fol-

lowing "Expectance" table will help many persons in determining the

least they should invest in Ohio Wesleyan:

Amount per year for five years if your

income is:

$ 5,000 and under...............2%

5,000-$10,000.................2%-3%

10,000- 15,000.................3%-4%

15,000- 25,000.................4%

25,000- 50,000....................5%

50,000-100,000....................7%

100,000 and over..................10%

Income Tax Deduction

The United States Government through the

Federal Income Tax Law recognizes that educa-

tional institutions must be supported by public

and private gifts. It is therefore permissible

for a donor to deduct his gift to such an instit-

ution up to 15% of his income. If the gift be

paid over a period of years, the amount each

year may be deducted from the taxable income

of that year.

The following table shows how a gift to Ohio

Wesleyan may reduce the Federal Income Tax

of the donor.

Net A Gift to Will reduce

Taxable O.W.U. donor's

Income in cash of income tax

$ 10,000 $1,500 $135.00

15,000 2,250 257.50

20,000 3,000 410.00

25,000 3,750 640.00

50,000 7,500 2,145.00

75,000 11,250 4,522.50

100,000 15,000 7,760.00

200,000 30,000 17,100.00

500,000 75,000 43,500.00

1,000,000 150,000 87,000.00

Your happiness and satisfaction

will be increased ten-fold if you will

invest in a corner stone instead of a

tomb stone. The monuments in the

cemeteries of Ohio cost more than

enough to generously endow all the

Universities in the State. Think

this over and then obey the impulse.

Among the alumni and friends of

our University are those who pay

$250 or more for a year's golf or

pay as much as $1,000 for a Country

Club membership; without think-

ing that the good old school at Del-

aware gives a year's education for

less than the former item, and re-

ceives less than the latter for a four-

year's course.

What Thinkers Have Said

About the Nation's Need for Strong

Christian Colleges

Theodore Roosevelt

"To educate a man in mind and not in morals,

is to educate a menace to society."

John W. Hoffman, President

"At Ohio Wesleyan the constant concern is that

impulse and idea, thought and skill, culture and

character shall ever serve the noblest ends of Christ

in his matchless zeal to establish the Kingdom of

God on earth. With a passionate determination

every fact, every truth, every facility is organized

in the noble effort to make the world Christian."

Woodrow Wilson

"Scholarship has usually been more fruitful

when associated with religion, and scholarship

has never, so far as I can recall, been associated

with any religion except that of Jesus Christ."

W. F. King

"Properly to plant and nourish a Christian col-

lege is one of the highest privileges of Christian

men and women. There is no soil so productive

as mind, and no seed so fruitful as ideas. He

who wishes to do the greatest possible good, and

for the longest possible time, should nourish the

fountains of learning, and help thirsting youth to

the water."

Warren G. Harding

"Christian education is essential to Christian

citizenship and right civic leadership."

Elihu Root

"From such sources as these come the influence

and the characters that are to make our govern-

ment still more useful and prosperous, and glor-

ious, in the forefront of civilization--the preserver

of Liberty and Justice, and Peace."

Herbert Spencer

"To educate the reason without educating the

desire is like placing a repeating rifle in the hands

of a savage."

James J. Hill

"The Christian college is the hope of Amer-

ica--character is essential to statesmanship, and

these colleges are vital factors in the develop-

ment of sterling characters."

Professor Thompson of Ohio State University

"I am in no way untrue to state institutions

when I say that in our day a boy might become a

bachelor or master in almost any one of the best

of them, and be as ignorant to the Bible, the moral

and spiritual truth which it represents and the

fundamental principles of religion, their nature

and value to society, as if he had been educated

in a non-Christian country. Who is to supply

this lack if not the Christian college?"

Eliot

"Exclude religion from education and you have

no foundation upon which to build moral char-

acter."

Emerson

"Characteris higher than intellect; a great soul

will be strong to live as well as to think."

Bishop Anderson

"An investment in Ohio Wesleyan University

is an investment for scholarship, for truth, for

broad culture, for human progress, for world bet-

terment, for the Kingdom of God in America, and

to the ends of the earth."

Bishop McDowell

"A half century ago Christian education

moulded the mind of the boy and girl--today

it makes the mind of the nation."

Roger W. Babson

"The need of the hour is not more factories or

materials, not more railroads or steamships, not

more armies or more navies, but rather more edu-

cation based on the plain teaching of Jesus.

"We are willing to give our property and even our

lives when our country calls in time of war. Yet

the call of Christian education is today of even

greater importance than was ever the call of the

army or the navy. I say this because we shall

probably never live to see America attacked from

without, but we may at any time see our best

institutions attacked from within.

"I am not offering Christian education as a pro-

tector of property, because nearly all the great

progressive and liberal movements of history have

been born in the hearts of Christian educators.

I do, however, insist that the safety of our sons

and daughters as they go out on the streets this

very night is due to the influence of the preachers

rather than to the influence of the policemen and

lawmakers. Yes, the safety of our nation, includ-

ing all groups, depends on Christian education."

What Shall I Endow?

NEXT to endowing a University or a department of the university,

the most important and equally immortal thing that a man can

do is to endow a chair. There are departments and professorships in

the colleges of the old English Universities that have perpetuated the

names of their founders for hundreds of years.

The wise way is to endow a department or a chair but not to specify

the study. Leave that to be designated by the Trustees from time to

time in future years. No man can foretell the relative demands fifty

years from now in the many branches of education, and such professor-

ships, like the universities themselves, live forever.

How Can I Make My Pledge?

ON the next page is a facsimile reproduction of the Pledge Card

adopted by the Board of Trustees for use in the Ohio Wesleyan

Development Program.

It is designed to cover the needs of most givers and at the same time

so simplify the contract that the Treasurer's office can easily keep an

accurate record of each contract.

The total amount of each donor's subscription should be written on

the first dotted line within the body of the contract. The donor

should then designate the method of payment he desires to use by

placing an X in one of the squares following.

THE WHITE HOUSE

WASHINGTON December 26, 1922

My Dear Professor Marshman:

I need not tell you how cordially I wish you and your

associates a most eminent success in carrying out your

ambitious program for the further development and expan-

sion of Ohio Wesleyan University.

Coming from a neighboring city as I do, I feel almost a

personal interest in the growing fortunes and influence of

Ohio Wesleyan. It has always been an Ohio institution in

which those of us in neighboring counties felt a very

especial pride, and I know something of the splendid con-

tribution which the University has made to men eminent in

the professional, religious and political life of the republic.

Fortunately located, with a splendid record already made, I

can well believe that the friends of Ohio Wesleyan will take

exceptional interest in making an outstanding success of the

large program which you have in mind. Please be assured

of my more than cordial good wishes.

Very truly yours,

[signature of Warren Harding]

Prof. John T. Marshman,

Ohio Wesleyan University,
