MONDAY EVENING, JANUARY 16. 1933 f : u z 4 z ft: n -. i - I'i 1 r Liberal Arts Institution Has Enrollment of 187; Plans Laid for Future CompI 1 1 n r it 40th academic year, La Verne college will next , month Inaugurate an anniversary celebration that will culminate In commencement activities for 39 enlors, one more than the number enrolled at this time last year. The , college la one of the eight Institutions of higher learning operated by the Church of the Brethren denomination. No sectarian tests are required for admission, and last year the board of trustees expanded its membership to Include two I local trustees to represent the In-. creasing enrollment from other denominations. At present the college has a total enrollment of 187, including 29 seniors, BO Juniors, 48 sopho-1 mores, 3S freshmen, 10 special students In liberal arts, and seven special students In music. The Institution is a liberal art college affording a Christian environment for worthy young men and women. Originally "Lordtburg" As Lordsburg college, the Institution was founded In 1891 when : David Kuns, Henry Kuns, Daniel Houser and Samuel Overholtzer, all members of the church, purchased ' a three story building erected for a ; hotel, together with several acres of ground, and secured a charter. During its infancy, the college was closed for something over a year before resuming an academic schedule that has remained un- . broken to date, thus making a total of 40 years next month. On March 28, 1908, the property was donated to and accepted ly the ' Church of the Brethren, Southern California and Arizona district, and . In 1914, the northern district of the ; denomination became a Joint owner. Most of the academic activities are housed in the large main building, known as Founders hall and occupied November 1, 1920. The three-story concrete structure, admirably set off on spacious landscaped grounds, also provides a large auditorium, which Is used for most of the large college and public gatherings of the community. . There Is a dormitory for women students and teachers, known as ' Miller hall, erected in 1918, a gymnasium building, athletlo field, tennis courts and other necessary facilities for a completely equipped college plant. Many Facilities Provided First class laboratories afford excellent accommodations for the departments of chemistry, biology and psybics, and a fine library with many valuable volume Is maintained by the Institution. A large proportion of the graduates enter ihe teaching profession, where the institution Is accorded widespread recognition. Religious preparations, Including ministerial and missionary, draw a large number of students. Until this last year, the limited student body has served as a discouragement to athletic success, but the 1933 football season marked thp ascendancy of the Leopards on the gridiron, Coach Lee Elsan's men emerging in second place In the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic conference, of which the institution Is aa accredited member. Exceedingly active T. W, C. A. and Y, M. C. A. chapters afford the young people an opportunity to develop Christian character and to exert an uplifting Influence upon the student body and the community. Another organization, known as the Student Volunteers, engages those who are preparing for possible missionary work abroad. A student staff publishes a weekly paper, the Campus Times, and the college year book Is credita bly edited under the title, The Lambda." Future of College Planned The aim of the administration Is to secure an endowment of $500,000 for a permanent Income sufficiently large to correspond with other lines of advance in the growth of the college. Tuitions paid by stu dents cover about 40 per cent of the operating expenses. Future building plans call for the erection of a mens dormitory, a library, science hall, fine arts building and the addition of a wing to Founders hall, eventually to care for a registration of some BOO stu dents. Expenses at the institution are nominal, a large number of the students being self-supporting Liberal scholarships are offered deserving students.
