THE ALUMNI ORGAN.
Tho large pipe organ which now
stands in the new chapel is the gift
of tho alumni of our university, and
it perhaps would not bo amiss to
freshen the minds of our readers upon
the facts surrounding this gift.
The organ was purchased at a cost
of three thousand dollars from the
trans-Mississippi exposition commis
sioners. Of this amount twenty-five
hundred dollars was pledged by the
alumni and tho deraainlng flvo hun
urcd, Director Kimball of tho school
of music very kindly agreed to raise
through recitals. Tho alumni have
paid two thousand dollars, and there
are many who have subscribed but as
yet have not paid. Mr. Kimball has
contributed thrco hundred and fifty
dollars of his share. This leaves
about six- hundred and fifty dollars
balance to bo paid, in addition to the
interest due, tho dobt having drawn
bIx per cent interest for nearly two
Tho committeo on dedication com
posed of Mrs. Haruy, Paul F. Clark,
W. O. Jones, ti. G. Shcdd, Mr. Flath
erty and Professor Fossler, had or
iginally intended to dedicate the organ
on tho coming charter day, condition
ally that all the pledges should be
jpald in by that tlmo. There only re
mains a small part of tho sum to be
paluy and tho committeo earnestly
hopes that those who have subscribed
and not paid will call and do so im
mediately. It is their wish that they
may turn this organ ovor to tho uni
versity entirely free from debt. There
are a number who reside near to the
university who have not paid their
pledges and to these tho committee
especially appeals. Tho committeo al
so wishes the addresses of all tho don
ors, that they may bo printed on small
circulars, or so-called programs to bo
used on the day of dedication.
