. I Hastings College Letter.
Hastings, Neb., March 11, 1903.
The last year has been one of tho
most succesBBful years In our history.
There has been a gain of more than 25
per cent In attendance, and tho char
acter of the students and the work
done has been of the very best. The
introduction of a limited number of
electives has enlarged tho opportuni
ties of tho student and has also added
to their Interest. The evident need in
tho central and western part of ftie
state is normal work. This is shown
by the bill Introduced by our state
superintendent. And it is evident that
sooner or later and the sooner the
better there will have to bo a state
normal in the central or western part
of tho state. The reoiit action In al
lowing colleges who have maintained
a sufficiently high standard, and have
160,000- worth ofl property, with the ap
proval of the stabe superintendent, to
grant state certificates wll "Enable Hast
ings College to assist In thfe work.
The executlvo committee have already
given instructions to supply the elect
ives In pedagogy, etc., that are re
quired by law. It Is expected another
year to enlarge our work along tho
The College laboratories are sup
plied with necessary apparatus and ma
terial for all the science courses and
are constantly being replenished and
Increased. In so far as It Is practic
able, students in all laboratory work
are required to perform experiments
for themselves, under tho constant
supervision of tho instructor in charge.
The library now numbers about 3,500
volumes, and a fund is being created
that will aid the various departments
to add from time to time such new
books as are necessary for reference
and research. An especial effort will
be made to add to the collection bear
ing upon American and English lit
erature and history.
There are two literary societies, the
Whlttlerian and tho Pestalozzlan.
These organizations are conducted en
tirely by the students. It gives an op
portunity for practice In parliamentary
law, and also affords tho members a
chance for training in debate, oratory
and composition. There are two Chris
tian organizations, the Y. M. C. A. and
the Y. W. C. A. They have their sep
arate meetings every Saturday and a
joint meeting every Wednesday. The
Christian Influence Is of the very best.
In addition to these regular organiza
tions classes in Bible study and mis
sion work do much to advance the re
ligious life of the college. In athletics
there lsye usual football association,
and baseball and track teams. They
are well organized and the games with
the other colleges In the state Increases
tho friendly spirit among these Insti
tutions. Tho greatest need of the colleges of
Nebraska Is endowment. There Is not
one of the Institutions that has even
enough to carry on its work to the
best advantage. Wo do not believe that
the good or usefulness of a college can
be measured by Its endowment, for the
majority of our colleges have but very
little of this world's goods, and yet
they are doing good work. Neverthe
less, a small endowment gives a per
manency to the work and enables the
Institution to enlarge its usefulness.
Two years ago an effort was started
by the executive committee to secure
$50,000 as an endowment. Twenty-eight
thousand dollars has already been
pledged. Two citizens of Hastings, A.
L. Clarke and W. H. ForgUBon, have
each contributed $5,000, Robert Brown
$1,000, and tho students have sub
scribed $2,700. A large number of other
Individuals and churches have given.
This work will be pushed, and It Is
hoped before long to have a substantial
Hastings College was opened for tho
work of public instruction in Septem
ber, 1882. This was the result of a
movement begun In 1874 when tho
Kearney Presbytery, which Included
what is now Hastings and Kearney
Presbyteries, Bent an overture to the
Bynod convening at Nebraska City. Tho
college Is under the control of tho
synod of Nebraska, which electB an
nually nine trustees to serve for three
years. It has been under the care bf
the board of aid for colleges and acade
mies for tho past sixteen years, except
during the years 1897-99. It Is sit
uated In Hastings, a thriving city of
about 10,000 inhabitants, well supplied
with schools and churches, and easily
accessible by railroad from ten differ
ent directions. Thero is in the state
no institution doing college work west
of Hastings, yet according td the last
census about one-third of the popula
tion of the state HveB In the territory
west of a lino extending north and
south of the east side of Adams county,
in which Hastings is situated. The
college Is well located and destined to
become an educational center, and its
position affords a strategic center for
educational activity and Influence in
The art of right living is a greater
art than the art of high living. To
teach and train our young people how
to live right with their fellow men is
better than to teach them professional
ism. Tho college Is to broaden men.
The tendency of the technical school Is
always to make him narrow. There
fore the Importance of a college train
ing before one enters upon their pro
fessional work. The purpose of Hast
ings College is to give this training.
While wo have been hampered by the
lack of meanB In fulfilling this ideal as
wo would like, tho work of our gradu
ates bears testimony to tho fact that
the Institution has not altogether failed
in carrying out of the purpose of its
founder. E. V-D. W.
