Three Hundred Former Students At
tend I the Commencement.
There could be ho" more substantial
basis for optimism with respect fo the
future of Grinnell college than this, that
the alumni are becoming increasingly
interested in the college. There never
was such a splendid commencement as
that just celebrated. It is estimated that
at least three hundred former students
were there. But more Important than
numbers was the enthusiasm and joy
ously effervescent expression of loyalty
and good will manifest at all times.
Every day was full of surprises of pleas
ure; every hour added some rich treas
ure to memory's store of delightful ex
periences. The cyclone class (1882) was represented
by a remarkably large percentage of its
membership, and they contributed much
to the value of the commencement time.
Dr. Dana W. Bartlett of Los Angeles,
a member of this class, gave a powerful
presentation of the spirit of social serv
ice before the Christian associations on
Sunday morning; Professor O. ' F. Emer
son of Western Reserve university,
another member of this class who re
turned to his alma mater to receive the
degree of doctor of letters, contributed
some very Interesting reminiscences at
the college luncheon.
Special reunions were also held by the
class of 1892, celebrating its twentieth
anniversary, and the class of 1902, its
tenth anniversary. r" . . , ,
The college luncheon, held Wednesday
noon, June, 12, was a feast of toasts
marked by many . Interesting incidents.
Almost every generation ot the college
history was represented and many were
the plaudits of the big souls that have
" '" Ts. 18 not a mere advertising boast It is a provable fact by our records that we have had students this year from as far east as Clarion, Penn
sylvania; as far south as Clarksville, Arkansas; as far west as Cripple Creek, Colorado, and as far north as Bathgate, North Dakota. i V '
BOYLES COLLEGE HAS ADVANTAGES THAT HAVE SIMPLY COMPELLED ITS GREAT GROWTH.
The faculty is most undoubtedly one of the most potent causes of its unexampled size. The very best educational institutions of the entire United
States have given us of their best-graduates of Harvard, Drake University, Upper Iowa University, Northern Indiana Normal College, the Indiana
Normal College, Danville Normal College of New York, Smithville, Ohio, Normal, Missouri University and other prominent institutions being
included among our faculty. , ,
The prestige and the good will of every prominent Omaha business man is most certainly another cause for the unprecedented popularity of this
now famous, business college. The business men of this section prefer Boyles College graduates simply because of the very simple and good reason
that they know Boyles College gives its students superior training in all business branches. , c
