Virginia laid claim to the oldest so-,
ciety,and only recently was the inat-
ter finally settled in favor of Michi-
gan. From 1858 to 1870 the asso-
ciation proved an active factor in
college life, and at the latter date
opened its doors to women as soon
as they were admitted to the Uni-
versity. For a number of reasons
they did not take an active part in
the work of the society until in '74
Alice Freeman, then a sophomore,
entered the association, and soon
succeeded in bringing the women
into the work to such an extent that
ever since they have been an im-
portant part of its working force.
It is a significant fact that the as-
sociation was founded by one who
has since become president of Fisk
University, Adam K. Spence, and
that the woman who contributed
most to its success at a later period,
became the honored president of
In 1883 the association celebrated
its twenty-fifth anniversary, and as
a result of intense interest then
aroused, a building fund was started;
this, however, made slow progress
until the generosity of Mrs. Helen
Newberry enabled the work to prs-
ceed. Finally, at the close of 'go-
'9g, the building was completed ansi
Before tis time room g, in the
south wing, had been the headquar-
ters, and naturally the opening
of the new hall has greatly
increased the work. This year, in
addition to the regular opening
work of helping new students to set-
tlie,a religious census has been taken,
the results of which will soon be
compiled and published. Also from
this a register, showing addresses of
all students, has been made. This
is being very largely used, and is
only one of the many ways in which
siows th e folwing classs:

These classes are open to all,
whether students or not, and the
only expense is a contingent fee of
twenty-five cents a semester.
In addition to this, Oct. 28 to 30,
there will be a Bible Institute, con-
ducted on the plan so successfully
carried out during the past two years.
Prof. Votaw, of Chicago University,
will conduct the New Testament
work, and Prof. Price, of the same
institution, will give work on the
Old Testament. Besides these Pro-
fessors Belser and Dewey will speak
on st>ecial subjects.
No other college in America,
which does not have Bible study in
its curriculum, and few that do, offer
as great advantages in that line as
are given here.
In other ways the association is
extending its work. In view of the
campaign the number of dailies has
been increased and a large number
of other periodicals, both weekly
and monthly, has been added to the
