People who live in a community
should be anxious and pleased to see public improvements going on around
them, and especially do we watch the young boys and girls as they grow
up and start out in the different occupations that appeal to them and to
which they intent to devote their energies hereafter.
St. Williams has the pleasure of
knowing a great many young men who grew up here who have made a success
of the calling they decided to follow.
Among them at this time we are
pleased to mention the name of F. Stacey McCall, B.A., who started in
the St. Williams Public School, afterwards attending the Port Rowan High
School, and later attended the University, through all of which he
passed successfully, finally entering the ministry, and now at the age
of 39 years, by his energy and devotion has climbed to the important
position of principal of Alberta College, located at Edmonton, where
over 1,400 students are receiving their education.
He was chosen to come to Toronto
to arrange the shares due the different colleges from the Methodist
National Campaign, and came on here last Friday to spend Sunday at his
old home with his sister, Miss Edith, and aunt, Mrs. Newitt.
He was welcomed by everyone here
and willingly agreed to preach in the Methodist Church on Sunday
morning, where the people came together to listene to a wonderful
sermon, which all who heard appreciated.
May his years of usefulness be
