Extract from report of President:

" Bishop College has during the past year aided the Central High School (colored) to establish a beginning of Manual training work, and one of our students is rendering efficient help as an instructor. During the past year we have erected a young men's dormitory at a cost of more than $44,000. An additional $6,000 is needed to complete it and furnish it.''
