"Buckner College of Witcherville, has passed into the hands of the Protestant Episcopal Church... The trustees, at their annual meeting last week, accepted a proposal from the authorities of the Episocopal Church to pay off the encumberances of the property, fit it up with such an equipment as is needed and assume control of its affairs. The property was therefore transferred and a new Board of Trustees elected with the Rev. Geo.F. Degan of Fort Smith as President."
