Iowa Now Supports Many Fine Colleges Education is the keystone nf American democracy and the hope of the civilized world. A recent report by John W. Studebaker, U. S. Commissioner of Education and a former lowan, indicated 32,000,000 Americans had started bock to school this fall, 2,750,000 of whom were attending our colleges and universities. In Iowa, which has always stood at the front in education, our institutions of higher learning have nearly doubled their enrollment since 1940, approximately 45,000 attending our three state schools and the score of private colleges that dot the Hnwkeye State. There are as many students attending the University of Iowa, Iowa State College, and Iowa State Teachers College in 1947, as were enrolled in all our colleges in 1940. During the past century our pri vate colleges have played a leading role in the intellectual and cultural development of Iowa. The names of Drake and Grinnell, Coe and Cornell, Luther and Parsons, Du buque University and Morningside, Loras and Iowa Wesleyan, it lustrate the varied denominations that have supported such schools, Iowa would truly bt poorer were it not for the vision and sacrifices which have made these schools possible. Many Iowa colleges died, after long and distinguished service. Des Moines University at Des Moines Tabor College at Tabor. Ellsworth College at Iowa Falls, and Lenox College at Hopkinton are notable examples of schools that have died during the past quarter century, The story of Lenox College, whose doors were opened in 1859 and from whose portals some of Iowa's most distinguished scholars emerged, is told by William R. Ferguson in the September, 1947, issue of "The Palimpsest." It is a fitting tribute to one of those grand colleges from which Iowa gained so much !
