Fisk Notes – 22 Feb 1907

Nashville Globe – 22 Feb 1907

Fisk Notes

  • Sunday, Feb 17, we had the unexpected pleasure of an address by Dr. Trumbull, editor of the Sunday School Times.  The basis of his address was his trip to the Holy Land several years ago.
  • Mr. Allen, of Walden, addressed the Y.M.C.A, February 17.  His subject, which was well handled, was “Am I My Brother’s Keeper?”  The president of the Walden Y.M.C.A. was present and also made a few remarks.
  • At a business meeting of the Y.M.C.A. Tuesday night, the following officers for the next school year elected: President, T.M. Brumfield, Vice Presiden, A.M. Gilbert; Treasurer, M. Patterson; Corresponding Secretary, W.E. Key; Recording Secretary, W.H. Price; Librarian, Ernest Byrnes.
  • The Senior College Class was entertained at the home of President Merrill Monday evening from 5:30 until 9:00.  At dinner covers were laid for nineteen, including Mrs. H.F. Mitchell, wife of one of the members of the class, and Mr. Pratt Thomas, the absent president of the class.  Each one preset received as souvenirs of the occasion a little bow made of the class colors,  lavender and white and a choice from a group of Brown and <…> pictures.  All concur in saying that they spent a very pleasant evening at the President’s house.
  • We are expecting on March 6 a Pullman car full of friends of the A.M.A. who will spend the entire day visiting with us on the occasion of the dedication of Chase Hall.
  • La grippe has made its presence known at the University and a number of the students have felt its clutches.
  • The usual Washington’s Birthday Social was held in Jubilee parlors Thursday evening instead of Friday on account of the play, “The Merchant of Venice,” at Memorial Chapel Friday evening.
  • Mr. J.J. Green led Christian Endeavor at Howard Chapel Sunday night, February 17.
  • “Four-Square: or a Well-Rounded Manhood,” was the subject of an able address delivered before the White Cross League by Dr. Jas. Bond, on February 17.  The next meeting, held the third Sunday in March, will be addressed by Dr. F.A. Stewart.
  •  Calendar: “Merchant of Venice,” Feb. 22, Memorial Chapel – Dedication of Chase Hall, March 6.
