BISHOP MAKES PLEA
Appeals to Episcopal Women to
Saisa Last $60,000 of
$200,000 Tond Jor the
In a voice broken with emotion,
Biahop Arthur L. William Tuesday
morning appealed to Episcopal
women oi the Omaha diocese at their
annual convention at Trinity parish
house to raise the last $60,000 for the
$200,000 Brownell Hall fund.
"After fifty-three years in the Epis
copal service I could not hold up my
bead, I would be so shamed and hu
miliated, if this money for Christian
education should not be raised. I am
disappointed and discouraged with
the lack of response from out-of-town
church people. Brownell Hall is not
simnlv an Omaha institution. The
school determines the character of
more outside girls than Omaha girls,
in proportion to its enrollment," said
. the bishop.
Three More Months.
September 1 is the expiration date
for the offer of ground made by
George & Co, provided $200,000 for
hnilriinn were raised. A $30,000 gift
from Joy Morton of Chicago is con
ditional on raising $250,000. To make
this gift possible one trustee Mas
offered to give $5,000; another said
he would raise a like amount, and a
third said he would double hjs sub
itcrintion. the bishoD told the women.
The trustees will meet next week, to.
plan raising the rest ot tne money.
