(by Rodger Fry) The forerunner of Westminster College was the Salt Lake Colleg- iate Institute, founded in April 1875 by Dr. John M. Coyner.The college went by this name until 1890. During this early period of the college, many prominent people gained their education at this college. In 1895 the name was changed to the Sheldon Jackson College. Dr. Sheldon Jackson offered to give $50,000 of his inheritance if this college were given his name. Later the name was changed, with his consent, to Westminster College. Classes were taught In the same buildings occupied by the College Institute, . under the direction of the Woman's Home Missions Board of the Presbyterian Church. In the search for a more commodious campus for the combined schools a committee (Dr. R. B. McMiece and Rev. Josiah McClain) called on Col. Wm. M. Ferry. Col. Ferry bought up lots on which our buildings now stand and gave 22 acres of land to the COMMUNISM -(From Pg. 2, Col. 5) ability on the fact that he lacked in a basic understanding of and capitalism. A person might learn many things in his educational process, but when it comes down to knowing our concept of one life as compared to another, he may be lacking. As college students and leaders of tomorrow it is our responsibility to have this knowledge. A healthy concept of our government would be a basic tool in understanding another government. Americanism has proved its superiority over communism. com-musi- j college for its initial campus. With the acquirement of the campus funds were solicited for the first buildings. John H. Con- -, verse, Pres, of the Baldwin Locomotive Co. of Philadelphia, gave the first $20,000, for Converse Hall. With a gift of$15,000 from Mrs. Wm. M. Ferry and additional funds from over the country, Ferry Hall with an unfinished third story was built. In 1911 the college was moved from its location at 2nd South and 2nd East to its present location. The school at that time was an eighth grade and a four year high school with a faculty of eight and an enrollment of 64. Under the financial strain of money for buildings and equipment, coUege work had been dropped for a few years. College work began again in Sept. 1914. Foster Hall was started during World War I and completed in 1925. The first $10,000 were used to build a part of the basement with a composition roof. In another year $10,000 from the other countrys prosperity is so great? The communist society will work on ideals and false promises, while our society is reality with fulfilled promises. When one compares America to Russia, one has to realize that people under Russian rule have known no other way of life. They know nothing better. I sincerely hope that you as a responsible college student, seek out the concepts of our government as compared to comWhat munism.

It was made possible largely through the generosity of James A. Hogle and family. March of 1926, Converse Hall was partly destroyed by fire. A 14,000-volulibrary was entirely destroyed. The building was rebuilt in the summer of 1926 by a fund of $60,000 which was donated by Salt Lake people. And a new library was built. In 1928,' through the leadership of Mr. Payne, one of the directors of the J. C. Penney Co., Payne Gymnasium was built. In 1935 Westminster was a two year junior college organization, and proved itself excellent. In 1944 Westminster became a four-ye- ar college. The first gradwas the class of 46 class uating and had only one member, Laur-en- e Hodges. me , them to postpone mid term examinations for a week in order to alleviate any conflict with Homecoming. Due date for mid-ter- m grades has been moved from Nov. 11 to Nov. 15. The academic department has asked that students please be patient in waiting for urging their grades. The Executive officers would like to thank Dr. MacDonald for his and support in this matter. - (Sex, Pg. 4, Col . 2) ' money. Ibis has stopped the inflation.

Late in the 1950s the music department was moved into the building where it is now located. This building was formerly a home for the president of the school. And just before the music department was moved there, the grounds caretaker lived there. In 1953 affiliation was effected with the Methodist Church, and in 1958 with what is now the United Church of Christ. Westminster is thus one of two senior colleges in the United States having a tri- pay interest for the use of that money. When they buy this money, there is no inflation. After a while, a small amount of inflation takes place. Well, then, when these people make payment on their loan, it will be paid with cheaper money, and therefore easier on them. And it is almost common knowledge that the large majority of the people in this country who buy cars, houses, furniture, today, buy these items on credit. I should like to make this final point. There is the large majority of young married couples who are buying products on credit. And with these couples buying on credit, they will have to payback their loans. They will be paying back with cheaper money. And so, I should like to submit that for our country as a whole this small amount of inflation is good. a sterile hospital.
