Mrs. Munford -2 1-31-14. are in the main distinct and irreconcilable, and in the present stage of the development of training for teachers the diversion of money properly belonging to a normal school to work of a collegiate character would certainly seem short sighted. As I see the Virginia situation there is need of a real college for women, not an enlarged school for training teachers even though a large percentage of the women do go into teaching. If one would press the argument along the lines of expensive equipment of libraries, laboratories, and faculty for real collegiate or university instruction as compared with the relatively simple equipment needed for the normal schools, the danger to the interests of elementary schools would become all the more apparent. Very truly yours, Kendrick Babcock KCB-D Dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
