Andrews College Review: Christmas, 1904The progress of St. Andrews College since the first class was enrolled in 1899 has been little short of phenomenal, and now that our new building is all but completed, it would seem that possibilities of expansion and influence, little dreamed of by the founders, are within reach. The success with which the College has met, and the honorable place it holds among the preparatory schools of the Dominion must be attributed, we take it, to efficient management, fidelity to high ideals and painstaking, sympathetic teaching.
But efficiency such as we are aiming at cannot be gained without considerable outlay, and we are bold enough to suggest to the friends of the College that there is still ample opportunity for them to assist the Principal in his efforts to meet the increased demands upon the funds which the progress of the country, the growth of the school and the educational requirements of the age necessitate.The expression first occurs in the First Book of Samuel, chapter four, verse nine, where with these words the Philistines encourage each other before joining battle with the Israelites.

For it is a call to participate in a good fight- a call to arm for the great conflict that must be waged by all in every-day life.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
