They decided that a class should be organized, open to both young men and young women and that Professor Hosic (now of Chicago Normal) should be asked to take the class in charge. Me consented and the mission spirit grew. About this time Dr. Rachel Rend, a missionary to China, who was home for a furlough, visited Miss Ferguson, a teacher in the Normal school at Peru. Dr. Bend was asked to talk during chapel hour, telling about her work in China. At the close of her talk she said that if any one wanted to talk with her further about missions she would be glad to talk with them. Several expressed a desire to hear more. She met them and at this time told how they might help in missionary effort by taking one of the foreign field and educating her, explaining that this could be done at cost of $30 per annum.
