Letter from E. Hire _1j_e_: Increasing College Attendance
· Next, Dr. Carr presented a letter from Dp. Chas. Hire in
reference to increasing the attendance of this college. The letter,
which follows, was read and dlscussed informally.
w July 25, 1934
Dr. J. W. Carr
~ Murray State Teachers College
Q Murray, Kentucky
` A Dear Dr. Carr:
A few days ago I wrote a letter suggesting plans
for bringing prognectlve students to the campus during the coming
year. One of the plans suggested was that of free admission of all
persons enrolled in high school to the Murray College football games
in the fall of 1954. At the time of writing your letter I did not
realize the full advantage that could be gained from such a pro-
cedure. In contacts with officials of our county clubs during the
last few days it has dawned upon me that such privileges granted
. to high school students would give pur county groups a leaverage by
which they can increase the popularity of this institution during
the coming year more than it could be increased by any form of
advertising that we can adopt. Furthermore, we should lose no
time in taking advantage of the high wave of enthusiam found at
present in our county groups.
_ So as to make reference to my former letter unnecessary I
will slmply state thm the plan which I suggested is to give free
. admission of high school students to the football games. It was not
suggested that one penny of money be spent upon these high school j
students for transportation or food and lodging ln Murray. It is Q
desired to bring large numbers of prospective students on the campus
at no additional cost whatever. Of course it is very probable that 3
adults would pay admission to the ganes in order to accompany the
high school children who are admitted free. So that in all probability
paid admissions to our football games would be increased in numbers by
the free admission to the children.
The time for perfecting such an organization is rapidly 1
drawing to a close. I am very anxious to begin detailed arrangements W
the latter part of this week if possible. I would therefore apprec1— `
ate early action on this phase of the advertising plan.
