Miss Virginia S. McKenney, 137 S. Sycamore St., Petersburg, Va.
My Miss McKenney:
Since you were here I have had a conference with the executive committee of the Chamber of Commerce and at my suggestion they appointed a subcommittee to confer with President Alderman in regard to making plans for a campaign for the woman's college.
President Alderman expresses himself as heartily in favor of the college and of waging a vigorous campaign and agreed to appoint a committee consisting of myself, Dean Thornton, and one other to cooperate with a similar committee from the Chamber of Commerce.
