they are located they are certain to be centers of influence, the leading
and effective men and women in their respective communities. A fair
pi-oportion of every graduating class find their way into the ministry,
and this in spite of the fact that Albion is in no sense a theological school.
The writer once asked in a business session of the Michigan Conference
that all those who were educated at the state university to rise to their
feet. Three men responded to the invitation. He then asked that all
who had had their training at Albion, in whole or in part, to do the same.
A very large proportion of the conference rose in testimony of the power
and influence of our church school And so time would fail me to tell of

above are full graduates of the college, and a multitude of others ought
to be mentioned who did not graduate, but who are today the strength
of our ministry.

At the present time Albion is very strong in most of its departments.
There is an imperative need for two or three additional chairs, and it is
needless to say that the college will always need more money and re-
sources. The writer believes that there is no place in the wide world
where money will go so far and do so much as that which is placed in the

endowment fund of a Christian college. Does tlie olnucli at la rye iukIit-
stand that money so placed can never be expendeil, but is set at work
repeating itself over and over while the institution endures? A hun-
dred or a thousand dollars, earning five percent interest, will repeat it-
self ever}- twenty years whether tiie donor is dead or alive; whetlier he
is generous at the present time or not; whether he regrets his former
gift or is ghid of it. This is the exceeding precious consideration eoii-
cerning every gift made to the college.
