the Ashbelites have gone to work on their essays to compete for the Grubbs medal. The title of these essays—“The rights of the young womanhood of Texas to equal or equivalent facilities for industrial training as are enjoyed by the other sex”—is the selection of Mr. Grubbs himself. Speaking of this, Mr. Grubbs said: “I am anxious to awaken an interest among the people of Texas in favor of the industrial education of our girls. We want to overcome, if possible,the social prejudices against industrial life, and the young ladies of our great University can do much to that end."

Mr. Rhodes S. Baker, chairman of arrangements for University Day, said to a News reporter last night:

"Interest in our day at the Fair is increasing in a wonderfully rapid way. During the last week every issue of the Nercs has contained the announcement of from one to three University Day organizations in the various towns throughout the State. It is certainly gratifying to the Dallas ex-students. We now feel confident that the movement will grow in favor and that the ex-students will pour in on us on October 21. I am in receipt of a letter from Mr. C. L. Jester, of Corsicana, which, I believe, voices the sentiment of nine-tenths of the students who have attended our University in the past. Mr. Jester writes:

"'I have been watching with considerable interest and much satisfaction the reports in the Dallas News and other papers over the State of the University of Texas Day at the Dallas Fair on October 21st, next, and write to assure you of my patriotic interest in the enterprise.

'This reunion can be made to subserve a dual purpose, for there can be brought about a blending of the pleasant and the practical. While enjoying the companionship of our former contemporaries and meeting those who have gone before and those who have come after us, we can also do much practical good for the institution under whose auspices the meeting is to be held by bringing it prominently, and, I hope, favorably, before the people.

Most institutions of learning owe much of their success to the interest manifested by their ex-students and alumni associations. Our University has always done her part. It behooves us, then, to do ours.

“'It is needless for me to tell you that I am subject to the command of those in charge of this laudable undertaking and you and your associates may feel certain that it will afford me a real pleasure to give my best efforts to further the cause of the institution in which all of us who have enjoyed its blessings feel a peculiar and loving interest.?»
