Progress of Mount Morris College
During the Last Year
Old Sainlslone as it looked on january 15. Illlil,
Uld Sandstone burned -Iamiary 15. 11112. Since then the college campus
has been a busy scene. The year will go down as a year of expansion in building.
Immediately after the fire the trustees began their plans for rebuilding. At first
they thought only of reconstructing Old Sandstone, but as they came to consider
the needs of the college, the future of the school loomed up before them and
they saw that more was needed. Being business men of push and sound judg-
ment, they immediately buckled down to work.
Old Sandstone as rebuilt is not only the best school building on the
campus, but one of the very best in this section of the state. The new dormitory
is the admiration of all. The central heating plant is one of the very best that
could be installed. The new equipment that is being secured for the laboratories,
library and recitation rooms is all that could be desired.
The trustees are putting in improvements that will run over 360,000 This
money has come from hundreds of donors. There have been a few heavy donors
and a large number of men and women' with moderate means have not only
given to the building fund, but have come into vital touch with the college.
l11 spite of the hindrances from lack of room and accommodations, the
attendance has kept up well. The enthusiasm with which all are filled is a
prophecy of increased attendance next year. The college department is coming
to the front, and the other departments are holding their own. just now agri-
culture is on the boom. Manual training will have good quarters next year, and
domestic science will have its full allotment on the program. XVhile pushing out
in the vocational work. the college will not let up on the regular lines of study
which have proved their efhciency in the past.

J. li. lllILLl'IR, our president, popularly called "J, E." Coccasionally called other namesj.
In spirit he is not so far removed from boyhood days but that he can appreciate young
blood. The only entrance requirements into his classes are to be able to sit on one chair
at a time and not less than four legs of that chair.
D. D, CULLER, the business manager. NVe give him our cash, in return he gives us
the opportunity to become brimful of knowledge. syrup and prunes. My! how we students
would loye to hear the Doctor turn loose all his peut up forces of logic, argument and
philosophy on that balky auto next summer.
M. lll. SHERRICK. the registrar. also our Polyglot. He thinks in five languages. yet
uses but one tongue. He is the proud possessor of a large front porch, a good strong ham-
mock and two daughtersg also two boys, and a billy goat.

M. VV. EMMI-:R'r, dean of the Bible Department. is loved most by those who know him
best. Wlienevfer he learns something good it is his greatldesire to give it to others. His
influence though quiet and unassuming is of a strong spiritual nature.
. L. S. Sl'llYliI.Y. Physics and Mathematics. The man who never smiles. but you know,
still water runs deep. Prof. certainly could make old Euclid himselfgo through some of
the queerest mathematical gymnastics such as were never dreamed of in the good old days.
U. C. Nvri, head of Music Department. .X more pleased, gracious and courteous
gentleman could nowhere be found. His music and graces are the ride of Mount
Morris as well as the envy of the gods.
C. H. K1cI.TNi5R, Agriculture and Chemistry. Prof. has agriculture and animal hus-
bandry to such alfine point that he can tell you what to feed a hog to make him curl his
tail either to the right or to the left. Judging by numbers his department is the most popular.
U. J. lfllili. Biology. lf you are a believer in evolution Prof. Pike can give you your
family tree directly through the monkey. hop toad and down to your original ancestor the
polly-wog. Science at Mount Morris has never had a more thorough exponent.
.-Xmxioiv SivvoPE. ROIEIZRT E. ZXl0HLER and Flililll S. SoRREXsoN teach respectively, Physics
and Mathematics. Education and Gym, English and Expression. These three Profs. con-
stituted the entire College graduating class at M. M. C. last spring. Few college classes
are retained as a whole to teach in their Alma Mater as the above have been. They have
absolutely demonstrated the falsity of the proverb, 'AA prophet is not without honor save in
his own country."
XY. A. RonINsoN. head of the Business Department. His father and mother were
Trish and he is Trish too. Besides being a teacher Mr. Robinson has held some responsible
positions in the business world, thus knowing both the practical as well as the theoretical.
Miss V. GRACE Nicnisic, Typewriting and Shorthand. She is another Mount Morris
product. When not teaching she acts as the presidentis private secretary. She probably
wrote that last letter you received from M. M. C.
Mus. l. R. HENDRlC'liStJN, Art. The Art Department under Mrs. Hendrickson became
so popular that it had to be removed to a special building. VVe regret that she was ill when
'the picture was taken and could not be present.
LEON BERRY, Voice. Through the efforts of Prof. Beery the College Chorus and
Quartette have been developed wonderfully. He is a small man but his quality is second to
O. VV. N1-:HrtR, Manual Training. This is the man who knows how to make shavings-
and that for a purpose, for that which remains is a thing of beauty and consequently a Joy
There is another, a College Senior who tutors in Academy English. He hopes to be
a full-fledged Prof. next year. Modesty forbids him to say more than that there may be
worse men behind prison bars.
