While our State is discredited by her educational inferiority in this s and other respects, and especially by her disgraceful illiteracy, it is yet · encouraging to know that there is an earnest and apparently a growing I- i demand for an institution of higher title, grander proportions and wider I _ usefulness than the State College. During its forty years the College, H _ with limited means and in the face of much opposition, has done a , ` work of incalcnlable value. The record made by it has long ago justified its I · existence and now calls for its expansion ; the State has eight hundred thou- ` f ` sand dollars invested in it ; and its advantages of location are, for Kentucky, incomparable. Not far from the center of the State; in a region unsur- passed for health, fertility and beauty, and supporting a proud, wealthy, _ Y and intelligent people, a people moreover always distinguished for devotion ` ; " to education and schools; with ten railways, soon to be increased to thir- , . teen, diverging from it, Lexington as the site of the State University offers g f attractions that are preeminent and manifold. · The glory of Wisconsin is her system of public schools headed by her _ magnificent University, and yet that State has fewer inhabitants if more », wealth than Kentucky. In 1904 Kentucky gave her State College $36,830; { Wisconsin gave her University $471,500; in lt)05, $558,000. . ` Let us hope that we are in the dawn of a brighter day, and that we are L . to have a University on a grand scale, worthy of its chief benefactor, the = City of Lexington, and commensurate with the pride and power of this 5 great Commonwealth. ·. {Tis; . _._. ., ,,__ _ '¢
