One of the Negro's least ostentatious but at the same time most
sincere and valuable friends during the recent past, was the late
Senator William F. Vilas, of Wisconsin, He bequeathed the sum of
$10,000,000 for the support of higher education at the State University
of Wisconsin, and provided in his will that in applying this sum to
the purpose named preference shall be given to Negro students.
THE QUEEN CROWNING.
The program arranged for Wednesday night of the Anniversary
Jubilee celebration calls for the election and crowning of a Jubilee
Queen. If this is rightly managed, it will not only bring in a con-
siderable sum of money to the church and Review, but will be the
greatest social success of the year.
Write to us for full particulars how to proceed.
When you have elected and crowned your queen, send us her
picture in her royal robes.
THE REVIEW ANNIVERSARY JUBILEE PROGRAM.
Elsewhere in this number will be found a complete program for
the Review Anniversary Jubilee covering four days. Sunday, Mon-
day, Tuesday and Wednesday, April 25, 26, 27, and 28. Some churches
in the country may not find it convenient to use all of these days;
in which case they can adopt so much of the program as will suit
But our advice is to follow the program wherever possible. This
ought not only to be made an occasion for raising money for the
churches and subscriptions for the Review, but a time for giving
the people valuable information about the A. M. E. Church to
which most of them belong. It will make them better members,
easier to govern, more liberal, and prouder of their race, if the
pastor carries out this program properly.
