GORIN LIBRARY of the Decatur College and Industrial School I 1914 Millidek Of The James Millikin University I 1 deorge Smoro ifcllnfos foe bebxtutt 1914 WibcU 3n Jfflemortam In the death of Mrs. Anna B. Millikin, one of the founders of the James Millikin University, a life broad in its interests and unse lfish in its aims was brought to a peaceful close. She with her hus- band, though unostentatious in manner of life and quiet in demeanor, planned magnificently for the young people of their land, daring to launch an enterprise of almost unlimited scope and of be- wildering detail. They thought in terms of years and generations, of the well-being and efficiency of thousands, of the succeeding circles of endeavor and achievement that widen ever into the Highest Good for Mankind. From the first vague desire and plan for this great gift, Mrs. Millikin was her hus- band ' s confidante and was equally anxious with him for the carrying out of their plans in the highest possible degree of perfection. To his broad and deep planning she brought her purposeful zeal and her personal interest which made for the effective completeness of the whole. At the end of his life, she added to her own burden of interest the further- ance of those ideals which she held as sacred as his memory, and throughout the four lonely years, kept up her unflagging co-operation with the projects of the Board of Managers, with the ideals of the faculty, and the interests of the student life. Never even in hours of weakness and ill health, did she lose sight of the vision which she and her husband had glimpsed — the vision of Human Service. Her associates in the University, while they mourn a great loss, praise God for the victorious completion of a life, broad in purpose, careful in performance, and triumphant in achievement. " For all the saints who from their labors rest Thy name, O Jesus, be forever blest. " %ty trustees! of tfje Unttiersiitp President of the Board Vice President Secretary Treasurer W. J.

GTfje department of Cbucatton What JffltlUfem J|asi peett Botng At the end of our college year, we may stop to review the steps which have been taken toward our running goal, — the greater Millikin. These steps have been mainly along two lines; the first is that of education. In place of the School of Pedagogy the new School of Education has been established. The growing demand for a larger number of courses dealing adequately with a variety of school problems has made necessary this enlargement and partial reorganization of educational work at Millikin. The general aim is: first, to afford all students an opportunity for the study of education as an important function of society; and second, to provide a thorn professional training for those expecting to teach. To this latter end the work is being correlated so as to provide for all the requirements of the new Illinois State Education Law. With such provisions Millikin graduates who have taken the education work offered may receive certificates without examinations. The second line of advance is in our six weeks ' agricultural course. This course is another part of the present policy which is to make our university of the greatest possible value to the community in which it is located. To quote from the announce- ment of the short course, " within a very few years the idea of utilizing the buildings and facilities of all educational institutions from the common school to the university for the benefit of others than the regular pupils has made rapid advancement. " The state universities and colleges have already done a great deal toward making their equipment of value to the farmer and his family, but there is no reason why the good work should be limited to the State Universities. This year the University of Illinois co-operated with Millikin in the giving of a six weeks ' agricultural and home training course in our Decatur College. The Illinois men supplied the teachers in agriculture and animal husbandry, while Millikin provided them in the other subjects offered. What was lacking in numbers, in this first course, was made up for by enthusiasm. The students urged that this six weeks ' course, which was an experiment this year, should be continued every year, and assured Millikin of their hearty co-operation and support.

V. Chapman, Assistant Harry X. Smallwood and John L. Beltz and J. C. Morse, firemen, has, through its chief, announced itself willing, even anxious, to answer questions about the fearsome inner workings of the plant. That fact, of itself, is proof that here is no ordinary, no mediocre, staff. If one of those students who are hugely ignorant of everything related to the power-house, — and that means almost any one of us, — were to accept this kind and enterprising offer of information, he would probably find himself surprised — and interested. He would be surprised to know that the plant used 2400 tons of coal during the winter just past, and supplied heat for more than 4200 square feet of radiation. He would be surprised, moreover, at finding that the engineer is net ALWAYS to blame when the lights go out. He might be interested in learning what all the big, black, noisy engines are for, and in hearing that the most gloriously noisy of them all is the high speed motor generator set installed last year, — or perhaps, after all, the noisiest is the whistle, which is two years old and feels it.

He handled the hot ones with the ease of a veteran, was a star at bat and had a batting average of 405 last spring. Reid Reid was used at first base where he nailed the speedy ones from all angles. Reid played an excellent game after he got his wooden cap. He will doubtless be seen in action on the Millikin field this spring. Walraven Used in the box and at right field, Walraven made good this year. His wide curves were a puzzle to many batters. He is noted for his fighting blood and will be a valuable asset to the team during the coming season. Holcomb Holcomb won his reputation as a Millikin ball player in left field. Playing in this position, he has been seen to nail some very difficult catches. Page 74 NINETEENFOURTEEN Chynoweth, Captain Captain Chynoweth, always playing a heady game, was especially handy on the bases, particularly the second bag. His hitting ability scored many runs for Millikin. Evans Evans closed his career on the Millikin mound with the same old form and cun- ning which carried the team out of so many uncomfortable positions. He was one of the best pitchers Millikin has ever produced. Wasem Wasem showed real form as a receiver, always with the big mitt behind the ball. The fielders always backed off for a high one when he was at bat. He has proved himself to be a most dependable player. Stables At second base and in center field Stables played a consistent game. He was a speedy base runner and not at all regular in missing the pellet.

At the expense of our opponents he landed many hot grounders safe in the first sacker ' s mitt. He also handled the stick in " Cobb " fashion. Jim is another boy who will hit the ball again for Millikin, Collins " Peely " won his M playing center field. He is a sure fielder and the long high ones seldom hit the ground in his territory. He has been a hard worker and deserves credit for what he has done. SEASON ' S BASEBALL SCORES April 25— E. I. S. N.

He met his first Conference defeat by inches in the 100 yard dash at Peoria, but turned the tables in the 220 yard dash and won with a safe lead. Dickerson, Captain-elect " Dick " figured in the Conference by winning the hammer throw. Always working for the good of the team, a care- ful and consistent trainer, he will without a doubt make an excellent leader in the spring. E. W. Smith Smith was one of the grittiest and best all around runners that ever wore a Mil- likin uniform. At Peoria he showed his heels to the whole field in the low hurdles and won his first gold medal in the Con- ference meet. Floyd Miller " Punk " shows real class in the hurdles. He gave us evidence of this fact by lead- ing the field to the tape in the high hurdles at the state meet last spring.

By beating Illinois College in a dual meet, and then going to Peoria with only five sturdy war- riors, who bagged the state conference meet, track athletes won a prominent and a permanent berth (for their sport) on the Millikin schedule.

For the last two years Millikin has won the singles at the Con- ference meet at Peoria, and last year she made a clean sweep in both the singles and he doubles. Millikin tennis players are worthy of all the credit that can be given diem. We are all glad to see the typical collegiate game coming to the front in an institution like Millikin. Manager Harry Riggs TEAM Singles Alex Long Doubles Earl Shelly, Walter Rogers Alex Long Alex needs no introduction in tennis cir- cles. He is a " south-paw " tennis player and has a speedy serve that ' s hard to meet. He not only showed his ability by winning the Conference singles but also won the city championship of De- catu i " . Shelly and Rogers These two showed wonderful team work. They served and returned their balls in such tricky fashion that they outwitted their opponents. They displayed enough class t« lead them to victory and win the doubles for Millikin, the first time in a Conference meet. FACULTY TEAM Singles W. J. Risley Doubles F. A. Gould, J. N. Ashmore The faculty team was not as successful as the student team but nevertheless they did themselves credit. Professor Risley stayed in the game until he was defeated in the finals by Brown of Bradley. Ashmore and Gould displayed a good class of tennis Inn were unable to lead their department to victory.

Delaney, Dickerson " Hates humbug and sham; loves his friends like a woman. " — Herb Hessler. Page 8.5 Hoover, Captain After a year ' s absence Hoover made his reappearance on the Millikin gridiron with his old time pep. He was unfor- tunate with a bad ankle the latter part of the season but was always full of fight and hard to down when he got away with the ball. Hessler, Captain-elect Hessler played a sturdy game at center and tackle. He was a stone wall on de- fense and a very worthy player because of his consistent training and team work. Hemple Hemple was full of fight and speed. With his sprinting ability he was a good ground gainer, especially on wide end runs. He is a man who deserves credit for his hard consistent training. Delaney One of those wiry, hard-muscled players, Jim could plough holes thru the oppon- ents ' line. His strong point was his punting ability, which made him a valu- able asset to the team. Page 86 NTNETEENFOT RTEEN Catlin A good fighter, a hard worker and a care- ful trainer, Catlin made good as a reg- ular from the very first. His specialty is steady, conscientious playing without ap- peal to the grandstand. Davis Davis was another freshman who figured in the Alillikin line-up. He played a sturdy, heady game at center and tackle. He has not played his last game for the Blue and White. Holcomb Holcomb won his position by good hard fighting. He was used at right end to the advantage of the whole team. Gibson Altho Raleigh ' s playing was not especially strong until the latter part of the season, he proved to be a valuable asset in the Thanksgiving game. He should win a regular berth next vear.

This fact made him specially valuable on defensive work. Wil son After four years, Wilson was able to come back on the Millikin gridiron, in good fighting shape. He did credit to himself and to the team by showing his old time form and generalship. Some critics give him a place at quarterback on the all state eleven. A whirlwind in the back field, Brownie was also a star at carrying the ball. II is knowledge of football along with his speed should make him a terror on future Millikin football teams. Certain critics gave him a place on the all state team. MacWherter His experience in high school football made Mac a valuable freshman. In spite of his weight he was fast on his feet, which made him doubly useful at end and other line positions.

" — Les. Kiick. Brown Brown is one of the many full blood basketball players that have sprung from Centralia. He upholds the standard of his home town by his consistent playing on the Millikin floor. His strong point is promotion of team work; however, he is a clever shooter. L. Kiick, Captain Not only is " Les " an efficient captain, but he is one of the fastest forwards in the state. He plays the floor in whirlwind fashion and is an artist in shooting bas- kets from all angles. Mill " Punk " is one of the cleverest basket tossers that ever played on the Millikin floor. He has yet to meet his superior in jumping at center. We are fully con- vinced that he is the best center in the Conference. Wall Walraven also hails from the land of basket shooters. Whether playing at guard or forward, he puts up more fight and stick-to-it-iveness than any other man on the team. He is a faithful, hard- working player and is a credit to Millikin athletics.

He can play any position on the team with the ease of a veteran, however, his strong point is at guard. His all around ability makes him very useful to the team. E. Kiick Elmer became a varsity man about the middle of last season. Since then he has proven to be one of the best guards that ever donned the blue and white. He has a snappy style of play that wins the ad- miration of all the rooters. Catlin During the whole season Catlin has been one of the main factors in breaking up opposing plays and in feeding the ball to his own team mates. He is a player whom we all admire for his gentlemanly, yet scrappy and all-state style of playing. Acker Altho Acker has not featured regularly in varsity games, he is a fast forward and is a freshman who will be heard from in future Millikin games. i Page 95 Page 96 .

When the college year opened, girls wearing white badges with Y. W. C. A. in blue letters, met trains and took the new girls to their rooms. Flowers with a card of greeting from the Association were placed in the rooms which were to be occupied by new students. On registration day an informal tea was served in the Association rooms. A week or two later an aggres- sive membership campaign brot one hundred and thirty-five members. The week of prayer was observed in November. In addition to daily prayer meetings of an informal character, a Vesper service was held on Sunday, and several additional meetings thru the week. At one of the most interesting of these the Chinese scene from the Asso- ciation pageant, The Ministering of the Gift, was presented. Among the social events of the year have been the formal reception to faculty and students at the opening of the year, a fudge party to which the wives of faculty members were invited, the annual Hallowe ' en party, and an informal affair during Thanksgiving vacation for the girls who were unable to go home. At one of the meetings the financial workings of the Association were presented and an opportunity given for systematic contributions. Over one hundred dollars was pledged. Ju t before Christmas a twelve page calendar with views of the University on each page was issued. In conventions held during the year Millikin has been well represented, with seven delegates at the Central Field Convention in Chicago, and five at the Student Volunteer Convention in Kansas City. Looking back over the year, it seems to us that the Association has made much progress. Yet it is but a beginning. It remains for others to take up the work where we leave it and carry it on to a greater success.

To those who are not familiar with what the name " Millikin Club " means, we explain that it is composed of alumni and former students of Millikin who have been regularly enrolled in the College proper and have had at least one year ' s work in the College. Residents of Macon Count} ' are eligible for membership. It now has about seventy active members. It is the purpose of the Club to keep in touch with the University and to keep its own members in touch with each other. The meetings are held on the first Monday of each month at the Y. VV. C. A., with the exception of July and August, at which time no meetings are held. The business meeting is preceded by a luncheon on the cafeteria plan. At each meetiug a report is made of the University matters and things that have transpired during the month past, also a calendar of events is given for the next month. On November 3rd President and Mrs. G. E. Fellows were the guests of the Club. On Dec. 1st the members of the Millikin Club were the guests of President and Mrs. G. E. Fellows at their home at 520 West William Street. This was a delightful affair and enjoyed by all of us. We expect to have some one of the Board of Managers with us at our meetings before the summer vacation and also one or more members of the faculty. The Club gives a gold medal each year to the winner of the oratorical contest of the University. Last year the prize was won by Miss Fay Fisher. We believe that we are doing some efficient work locally and that through the organization we are more actively interested in the University and render more loyal support to it. —II. W. McDavid.

D., L. H. D., L. L. D.. into the office of president, Tuesday, December 9, the Decatur College of the James Millikin University entered upon the second great era of its history. The academic procession formed in the conservatory building and at 10 o ' clock the long line of seniors, alumni, faculty, representatives, speakers, and guests marched between the lines of students gathered on each side of the driveway to the main building and into the auditorium. The seniors robed in cap and gown, led the procession from the conservatory. They were followed in order by the alumni, the faculty, the representa- tives and guests fr m other colleges and universities, and, finally, the speakers, members of the Board of Managers, trustees, and President Fellows. Just in front of the liberal arts building, the double line forming the procession divided and flanked the path on either side, while President Fellows passed thru. He was followed by the speakers, the guests and representatives, the faculty, alumni, and seniors, so that the whole line entered chapel in inverse order. This academic pageant was, perhaps, the most impressive ever witnessed in Decatur. As the procession entered the auditorium, the glee club sang as a processional. " How Firm a Foundation. " Dr. John F. Mills, pastor of the First Baptist church, pronounced the invocation. Rev. T. N. Ewing, of the Grace M. E. church, read the scripture. The string quartet, composed of Daniel Bonus, Mr. McGath, Mr. Childs, and Mr. Russel, played, under the direction of Mr. Bonus. Dr. William H. Penhallegon, syndic of the university and chairman of the board of trustees, extended the welcome and announced the speakers, introducing as the first President Edmund J. James of the University of Illinois. President James ' address was a scholarly masterpiece, treating in an interesting way some of the vital, modern problems in education. Pie emphasized the place that Millikin should take as a secondary school and pointed out some of her opportunities. His congratulations of President Fellows were very hearty and were expressed in the following excellent manner. " Trustees of Millikin University, citizens of Decatur, members of the faculty and students and alumni of Millikin, I congratulate you on the selection which the trustees have made of a leader in the life work of this institution in the years that are to come. " I became acquainted with [ ' resident Fellows nearly twenty-five years ago and have followed his career ever since with the liveliest interest. He has had the best advantages which the best schools of Europe and America afford in preparing himself for the great work which he has done. We were associated together in the University of Chicago for some years, and from that place he went to the presidency of the University of Maine. " I think the work which President Fellows did at the University of Maine was not only epochal in the history of that institution and that state, but in the history of Page 152 NINETEENFOT RTEEN iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiini i i .1111. ii i i ii miimiiiiiii mi i nni minimi i iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiii iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiin 1111 New England itself, and the effect of it will be seen more and more as the years go on. " With broad training, with large sympathy, with extended experience, with wide outlook, with unfailing indust ry, if the trustees and faculty and students and alumni of Millikin University give President Fellows half a chance you will all be proud in the years to come of the leadership which has come to you in this man. " As long as he is here stand by him, hold up his hands, second his efforts for in this way you will not only help him, but yourselves, the commonwealth and the nation. " Dr. John S. Nollen, president of Lake Forest College, was the second main speaker of the morning. He pointed out that the purpose of Millikin and of education generally is to teach young people the supremacy of individual and spiritual things. Following this addresses were delivered by Clyde Hart in behalf of the under- graduates, by Rev. Charles F. Record. ' 05, in behalf of the alumni, and by Dr. John C. Hessler, in behalf of the faculty. All three of these addresses were brief, t o the point, and scholarly little productions in themselves. Following these greetings, President Fellows delivered his inaugural address. Dealing as it did with educational problems vital to Millikin, the address was intensely interesting to all those concerned in Alillikin ' s welfare. Following these exercises the representatives, faculty, alumni, board members and guests went directly to the gymnasium for luncheon. The toasts that followed were greetings and best wishes to Millikin at this beginning of her new era of progress, from other colleges, Millikin alumni and citizens of Decatur. Superintendent Engleman of the Decatur public schools, was toastmaster. In all, twenty-two college presidents or representatives of colleges responded. More lengthy toasts were given by Francis G. Blair, state superintendent of public instruction; Rev. Martin Anderson, university pastor Presbyterian church, Champaign; Dr. Benjamin Schuyler Terry, University of Chicago; Dr. Edward Paul Baillot, Northwestern University: Pres. Robert J. Aley, University of Maine; Horace W. McDavid, Millikin alumni, and Robert I. Hunt, of Decatur. Following the luncheon Dr. and Mrs. Fellows held a reception in their home. In the evening, Pres. J. D. Moffatt, of Washington Jefferson College, and Dr. W. If. Black, of Missouri Valley College, spoke on some aspects of Christian education. Both addresses were strong and made a fitting close to the day ' s exercises. " Jfim all admire, all pay him reverence due. " — Prexy.

The fete was in the form of a flower festival, and took place on the back ' campus just at sunset. The procession was led as usual by the Seniors in cap and gown. Following them came the Queen of the Flowers, Edna Davis, dressed in white and carrying a large cornucopia covered with white carnations. She was accompanied by her maid of honor who carried a large white parasol covered with smilax, with four streamers falling from it. An attendant held each streamer and walked beside the Queen and her maid of honor. Behind these came the different flowers in groups, each dressed in appropriate colors and costumes. There were daisies in bright yellow, purple violets, pinks, roses, and many others. The snowballs, tiny girls in white, raindrops, girls in silver, and seven girls in the rainbow colors followed. Bees, the most petite of the college girls, resplendent in black and yellow gauze added much to the general effect. The procession gathered about the Queen ' s throne and waited while two of the attendants stepped forward and brot Mrs. Taylor from out of the crowd. Dropping on one knee the Queen of the Flowers held up her cornucopia to Mrs. Taylor, where- upon everyone swept a low courtesy. Within the cornucopia was a beautiful pin, a token of love from the girls of the University. Following the presentation came the frolic of the flowers. The mingling of the different colors in the twilight blended well with the green of the campus and formed a very beautiful picture. The flowers were suddenly scattered by the appearance of the raindrops who came forward for their caprice. The sunbeams then appeared, mingled with the flowers but were replaced by the rainbow-. The seven girls in white and each bearing a scarf of a different color gave a very delightful dance. At the conclusion of this dance the flowers in turn appeared for their separate dances. Besides these there were solo dances which added much to the picturesque occasion. " His dimpled checks arc smooth and fair. " — Paul Hawver.

The receiving lie ms were Samuel Tenison, Edna Orr, President and Mrs. Fellows, Mr. and Mrs. Bonus, Miss McCaslin, Eula Mason and Fay Fisher, the latter two harassed by new trains. On that same scintillating occasion, the class of nineteen fourteen provided itself litterateurs of high rank, actors of rare genius and chorus girls of exquisite comeliness. An original drama in several so-called acts was presented to a wildly enthusiastic audience of four hundred whooping students and uneasy faculty. The play, entitled " Ton Much Mustache " presented Millikin life in glaring realism, with the faculty and others ' " foibles the raison d ' etre. " The Juniors enjoyed especially the representations of their old friends, while the Sophomores and Freshmen took the greatest pleasure in the winsome front row of the chorus, and the faculty took a fearful joy in each jibe at their fellow laborers. The program gives some idea of the scope of the production and its musical numbers. " Now tve don ' t knozv what unexpected thing they may do next.

Kaeuper, whose work of ten years was crowned by the dedication of the most artistic and thoroly equipped building erected by the trustees of the Millikin estate in recognition of the work accomplished. The splendid develop- ment of musical appreciation among the students and townspeople, the quality of teaching and the artistic and educational results attained have been most conspicuous evidences of the standards upheld. The enrollment of 158 students during the season 1903-4 is a striking contrast to the 720 of 1912-13. The object of Millikin Conservatory has always been, not only to develop musical knowledge, but to develop and refine the minds, characters and tastes of the students — to give the students a general educational foundation upon which to build useful lives. Students have every advantage for thoro training. Millikin Conservatory offers superior advantages in music study at a very low cost. The highest are standards are maintained. The highest art standards are maintained. The building is the most artistic and convenient of any in the world known to us. The equipment is adequate for the most advanced study. The Conservatory forms a part of a Christian University where students enjoy the wholesome character-building atmosphere which broadens the life of every student, and where study in many other branches is available. It is not conducted for profit and for this reason the many free courses are offered to students. All income is devoted to the advancement of education. The tuition fees are one-third to one-half those charged for similar instruction in Boston and New York.

The building contains eighty-two rooms and a recital hall. On entering the building one is impressed by the refined dignity of line and color in the corridor and administration rooms. On the first floor, in addition to several teaching rooms and the recital hall, are the library, the general office and offices of the director and secretary. The indirect lighting system used thruout the main floor has proved an advantage of great beauty. The library in eucalyptus wood, finished in its natural color, with walls in a beau- tiful tone of green, is a room of rare beauty. The entire effect, with old English furniture and the charming ingle nook with its fireplace of tapestry brick, makes an inspirational place for study. The director ' s office with its massive furniture and large bay windows is unusually attractive. Kaeuper Recital Hall, named in honor of Mr. Hermann H. Kaeuper, has a seating capacity of two hundred. This room is considered a gem of art with its beautiful leaded-glass windows and its fine colors of gray and brown in the wood work and walls. The wood is bird ' s-eye maple finished in silver gray. The platform presents a charmingly designed Gothic screen back of the two grand pianos. This room impresses one with an atmosphere of dignified refinement and peace. The basement, second and third floor rooms are for class and private teaching, the Hughey Kindergarten and practice purposes. The interior is Gothic in style. Much investigation was necessary to obtain the best results in tone proofing, ventilation, heating and acoustics. Mr. Kaeuper spent months in correspondence and visits to various conservatories to investigate conditions. He also corresponded with leading conservatories in Europe and with noted scientists in America and in Europe who have given special study. to the problem of tone proof construction. Every possible precaution has been taken to avoid the faults of other conserva- tories and make use of their good points, so that the building is very beautiful, com- plete and effective.

It consists in reality of two schools: the Teachers ' Training School and the Children ' s Model School. The latter is made up of children ranging from two to seven years of age, and has, as its main object, the desire to help toward correct habit- making during the impressionable period of early childhood. The Hughey system deals with the scientific development of children younger than those under any other system. It trains and develops the imagination and mind of the child along the right lines, with music as a basis. It teaches him to be mentally alert, physically efficient, and morally sensitive. It takes a two-year-old baby and teaches him so to play that his tiny brain develops with astonishing rapidity and thoroness. The result is that by the time he is ten he has the mental efficiency of a child of fifteen without the sacrifice of any good quality of childhood, but with all constructive prin- ciples of good character strongly established. It is the sound theories and the practical results which have aroused such broad interest, in spite of the fact that there are other schools much ol der and of greater international reputation. People interested in educational work are coming to realize the possibilities and the unlimited opportunities of this newer method, and prophesy for it a brilliant and entirely successful future.

GTfje Jflobern positle of Snternattonal $eace Commerce is the modern apostle of international peace. Its message of friendship can be heard in every market place of the world. Every trade vessel that plies its course over separating water, every train that crosses a continent, every telegraph flashing a message around the world, every useful agent in modern civilization is a peace servant of commerce. Commerce through the influence of these servants has established a new era in the world ' s history — an era of international dependence. No power of modern times endeavors to live by the archaic principle of self sufficiency. England depends upon the world for the greater part of her wood and timber, for nearly all her raw materials, and no less than two-thirds of her food supplies. Ger- many and France cannot provide enough food to meet the demands of their citizens. They rely upon the productive power of their neighbors to supply these deficiencies. Nor is America uninfluenced by this new era of internationalism. The tropical foods, the beverages and a great part of the raw materials which she needs for the mainten- ance of her people are furnished by foreign lands. In truth the appearance of this apostle of peace has made every nation dependent on all others for both the necessaries and luxuries of life. Since modern nations, therefore, depend upon international commerce for their existence, one thing is evident. They must eradicate those activities which impair or destroy commercial relationship. Warfare belongs to this category of activities. Ever since the beginning of international dependence, the life of every commercial nation has been jeopardized by the diversion of labor and capital from the productive channels of business into the wasteful channels of war. The powers have tried to impede such a diversion by attempting to reconcile the interests of war and commerce. They have never succeeded and furthermore they never will succeed, because the two interests are obviously antithetic. The supreme aim of commerce is elimination of waste, which simply implies the production of wealth. The realization of such an aim depends on a multiplicity of conditions. It depends upon a strong virile laboring population whose labor is free from interferences and whose earnings are protected from the encroachments in indebtedness. Warfare destroys such conditions. It snatches from the ranks of productivity the strongest type of manhood this world can produce. It takes this manhood and wastes its life upon the fields of massacre and rapine. The human product of such a destruction is not a survival of the fittest but a survival of the unfit. And upon the survival of the unfit are placed the tremendous burdens and responsibilities of life. The four great conflicts of the last two decades, the British-Boer, the Spanish-American, the Russo-Japanese and the Balkan, compelled millions of men to abandon the productive pursuits of our civilization. This drain upon industry caused a diminution of the necessaries of life, followed by an increase in the prices of the commodities of common consumption, with the result that the whole commercial world suffered an ' ecenomic depression. The Balkan war, because of its recency and far-reaching effects, demands special attention. It has robbed Turkey of the greater part of her working population, shorn Greece of 68,000 wage earners, and cut off 45,000 of Bulgaria ' s sons in the prime of life, leaving 105.000 more so horribly crippled and mutilated as to be of no further use in the productive power of that nation. Half a million men swept completely from the field of industrial activity, one and one-half billions of dollars have been wasted in death and destruc- tion. Thousands of women and children unable to till the soil, deprived of the neces- " A weakness for bright-colored hose. " — Leo Gkaybill.

And still the misery continues. For years to come, the impoverished working men of Bulgaria must toil under a debt of two billions of dollars. From their earnings must come the support for 90,000 Turkish prisoners, for 150,000 Macedonian refugees, the support for 105,000 of their own kin, who because of their maimed condition have been relegated to the scrap heap of non-productive life. Such is the amiable treatment that commerce has received at the hands of modern, civilized warfare. The destructiveness of modern conflicts, however, cannot be confined to the fields of action. It reaches out and disturbs the whole commercial world. In Austria-Hungary the effects were especially pronounced. Numerous industrial concerns were forced into bankruptcy, various pro- ductive enterprises suffered a decline with the result that thousands of laboring people, who are entirely dependent upon these concerns for employment, were deprived of the necessaries of life. The Berlin exchange suffered a loss of one billion dollars due to a slump in the money market. Other financial centers experienced the same conditions. All Europe in consequence of this struggle has gone wild over military equipment. One-half of the annual revenues drawn from the toil and thrift of the people is being swamped in this non-productive business. Billions of dollars, thousands of lives, and freedom of productive labor, these are the things which warfare wrenches from the hands of commerce. Not only does war destroy the aims of exchange by removal of life, money and freedom of labor but the very preparation for war or militarism impedes the progress of international trade. Throughout the history of national interdepende nee the powers have been laboring under the conception that trade can only be insured by the presence of vast military equipment. This conception is a fallacy. Neither armies or navies protect and insure the trade of a country. Trade is simply an exchange of products. If a British manufacturer can make better clothing and better machinery than his German rival and can also make a more advantageous offer, he will get the sale. If he cannot meet this condition, however, his competitor will secure the trade and no number of dreadnaughts will intercept the bargain. Argentina evidently does not buy goods from Germany because Germany has more naval equipment than any other nation in the world. Neither does Bulgaria barter with England in preference to America because the former has a superior naval power. They, like all commonsense, business peoples, buy their goods from the manufacturer who puts up the best quality at the cheapest price. The whole history of commercial relationship shows that politi- cal prestige does not insure the trade of a nation. In fact it destroys the trade. The very act of hostile preparation automatically shuts down the industries of a country. Thousands of laboring people are driven elsewhere to seek employment, with the result that the belligerent power is completely boycotted from the international market. The great danger confronting Europe today is that the military interests will keep demanding more men and more money until some of the nations will be brought to bankruptcy. The public debt of France is already six billion dollars. Russia expends forty-eight per cent of her income for military protection. The statesmen of England and Germany waste the best of their energies in devising new methods of taxation, which will meet the financial exaction of militarism. The powers of Europe must come to see that their working people, handicapped by excessive taxes, cannot com- pete with the free laborers of other lands. The whole sisterhood of nations must be brought to realize that militarism does not protect but destroys international com- merce. The war enthusiasts may continue to display their pet arguments of com- " Yon can ' t saw 1 , wood with a hammer. " — PkOF. W. M. Hekking.

War has proved itself to be an enemy to commerce by robbing her of life, money and freedom of labor. Militarism has proved itself to be a non-protector for trade, because the big powers of the world, armed to their teeth, are equalled and in many cases completely outstripped in trade by the weaker ones, because a conscript country is completely boycotted from the international market, because military ex- penditure is bringing the nations to inevitable bankruptcy. This is the evidence which consigns war and militarism into that category of activities which destroy international commerce, — that category of activities, which the nations through the power of the apostles of peace must eradicate. Such an action has already begun. All the followers of this apostle are uniting their forces under the ensign of freedom and justice. The business men are calling peace congresses. The bankers have united in favor of arbitration. Socialism, the great European labor movement, refuses to support militarism. A palace of peace has been established. Two Hague conferences have been called. A third will soon con- vene where all the nations of the world will assemble to discuss the great questions of war and peace. A labor movement millions strong, including every nationality under the sun, is crystallizing itself into an agency for peace. Everywhere, industrial and commercial organizations coupled with the intelligent, productive citizenship of the world are demanding the rights of peace and freedom. These demands are not indications of momentary impulse. They are the indications of a great public conscience, awakening from its lethargy at the call of commerce, and assembling those forces which will annihilate the powers of war and militarism. This conclusion, however, does not imply that conflicts are a thing of the past. Nor that peace will be established without human agency. It does imply that peace, through the appeal of commerce, will be instituted. America as one of the world ' s greatest commercial powers owes it to her future prosperity and power to stand for peace. Her future prosperity will be reflected in the prosperity of her neighbors. Any disturbance to the industries of another nation will vitally affect her. A conflict between England and Japan would bring untold suffering to American wage earners, because thru inability to sell their surplus productions, their purchasing power of the necessaries of life, the purchasing power of those materials which they need to supple- ment their own output, would be crippled. The United States have invested no small amount of capital in foreign industries. A war implicating these countries, in which those industries are located, would either destroy or depreciate the working capacity of that capital. America, therefore, having such life interests at stake, owes it to her future prosperity to stand firmly against warfare. There is, however, a higher principle than that of good-for-self, the principle of good for all mankind. This principle above all others ought to ring in the heart of every American. Multitudes of laboring people are sacrificed at the altar of the war god, lean poverty continues to curse mankind with its wretchedness, because some nation does not have enough stamina, enough courage, to disclose the fallacies of war. The cries of violated honor, of crime, of starving women and children, of murder, still ring over the fields of the East. Hundreds of the injured, deprived of medical attention, with festering wounds and limbs rotting from their bodies, cry out against the terrible injustice of modern war. The sepulchered-space of half a million men shows the world that labor became the victim of political intrigue. How long must this business continue? Where is that nation who formerly championed the cause of right, truth, and justice? Has American patriotism become so dead that it refuses to respond to the calls of oppres- sion and distress?

We, being a world commercial power, can put such forces into operation as will ultimately annihilate the dangers of war and militarism. We in our business dealings can teach the lesson of honesty and justice. Through the powers of the American press and the pulpit we can disclose the fallacies of international slaughter. Under our new currency system, the bankers can intensify our power in the world ' s activities. The spirit of comradeship, the keen sense of universal fraternalism, which American labor has achieved, can widen the scope of influence until the laboring peoples of every nation shall be bound into one great union — a union for peace. In all occupations, there is an opportunity for serving mankind. Every public spirited American who reveres the principles of truth and justice, whose heart can be touched by the miseries of war-stricken people, who has a spark of true, Puritan patriotism, will avail himself of this opportunity. Our own America, by heeding the summons of the modern apostle of peace, will set such an example that the other nations will be compelled to follow and the cause of peace will be established. — C. A.

There would be no significance in an assem- blage to honor an individual whose work in this place is m the future and who just now stands at the open door of a new opportunity where fields are fertile and the promise of harvest is great. But your presence testifies to your devotion to the work of education and your interest in our particular problem. Not today only, but in the few months since I was asked to come I have heard many expressions of confidence and so many expectations of achievement that I might well be appalled at the task before me, and indeed I would be were it not that I expect and shall call for assistance and support at all times from those who have thus expressed themselves. I am assured that the citizens of Decatur will warmly support any well considered policy which has the endorsement of the best and most experienced educators of the country. I promise to devote what mental and physical energy I possess and such experience as I may have to assist all who are truly interested in the solution of the problems here presented. We anticipate no revolution but we do hope for as rapid evolution as possible in all the directions in which progress has already been made. The evolu- tion of our national liberty has proceeded far, but is by no means complete as is evidenced by the waverings and unsteady starts and stops of our highest legislative body and I am by no means alone in believing that through the colleges of the country may come the steadying of the Ship of State. Not alone because we now have a college president in the executive chair, another in the cabinet at the head of the most highly developed and far reaching deparatment, agriculture, and several more recently elected to congress, and one in the Speaker ' s chair, but because the trained intelligence of the thousands now annually coming from the colleges of the country will be safer to rely upon than the leadership of some we have had in the past who by accident, or war, or tariff, or appropriating unduly from the public domains have obtained riches. It would not be wise at this time to prophesy regarding the future of this institu- tion, nor to boast of its achievements in the past, it has not behind it a century or more of history as have numerous colleges of the East and South, but we firmly believe that it has a mission as worthy and important as any of either early or recent estab- lishment. It is our task to comprehend as well as may be the scope of its possible service to all individuals and to the communities in which it is located and which it serves by caring for its sons and daughters. If we are able to grasp its possibilities, then it is our duty to put in motion every available force to develop its usefulness to the very limit of its resources. Probl ems of education, like those of life, have by no means been solved. Each situation must be studied thoroughly and repeatedly as new conditions arise. There have been more seismic convulsions in the field of education in the past three or four decades than in as many centuries " before. The idea of universal education, now generally accepted, is in itself more revolutionary than the sentiments of the Declara- tion of Independence were in the political world. The first half dozen colleges in " ' Tis good to learn of those who counsel wisely. " — Prof. B. B. James. Page 189 America stood for aristocracy because universal education was then unthinkable. Our present enlarged view complicates our problems. What are we to teach? How is it to be taught, who, and what kinds of people, are to teach? The same tendencies are abroad in all grades of schools from primary to university, so what we say will be generally applicable, but we shall confine our brief discussion to the college. No longer ago than when people now of middle age were children, a college course meant Greek, Latin, mathematics, little or no history or literature, a minimum of reading or lectures about science with a few illustrative experiments, often without laboratories. At that time here in the middle West, life was such that boys ' and girls ' duties about the home gave them a partial industrial training, sufficient at least so that no one thought of industrial training in schools. This is not the place or time to discuss the changed conditions which have caused manual work and domestic economy to be introduced into all good public school systems, in the high school and in the lower grades. If college education is to be provided, opportunity must be given for study in all lines that have been pursued in the high school. If there were no better reason than this (which there certainly is) the colleges must give advanced work in industrial subjects as well as in classics and other academic studies. Formerly professional schools were the only means provided for special preparation for any life work. There were few outside of those for law, medicine, and theology; all engineering and trade schools are very recent. These professional schools must perforce accept students who had all the education obtainable, including college, and in company with them ambitious youths with little or no " schooling. The many undesirable results arising from this state of things are obvious to all who have thought upon or studied the subject. Within a very few years, there has been vigorous effort first, to extract from all applicants to professional ' schools a minimum of a high school education, then more recently an additional two years of college, and in a few cases a full four years college course. This, under old conditions, must greatly limit the number who can secure professional training, so devices for shortening the combined college and professional courses have been introduced, but the keynote of the whole movement is the recognition that schools and colleges no longer in the 20th century, and in the accelerated progress of humanity, can confine themselves to one side of human development only, — the intellectual. Some provision must be made for those who are compelled to drop out, all along the line from primary school to university, to get somewhat in touch with the fundamentals connected with some life occupation. So just now the most profound students of our educational problems have reached the conclusion that the vocational idea must be in the course of study. Just how far it should be carried is still a problem for the most earnest study. This institution has from the beginning provided courses with strong vocational trend as exactly parallel with the long accepted classical and scientific courses. The need of this type of college seems obvious for there are numerous other colleges within easy reach of all who attend here, and many of them have had long and honorable careers. Yet when ten years ago this college opened in this very room, there were more applicants for admission than the total number of students at that time in some of our most famous institutions which are a century old. I can account for it in no other way than that the program of instruction seemed suited to the needs of the time. One weakn ess in the present tendency toward the vocational idea in college is that the student, not having the advantage of a life to look back upon, becomes so " Why, bless your heart, he ' s everywhere!

It has been so often said, that it no longer needs quotation marks, that the educated man should know something of everything and everything of something. This is but a concise way of saying an educated man should have general culture as well as the most minute and exhaustive preparation in his life ' s employment. To properly balance the two is the difficult task set for administrators of all schools. Not so many years ago, education was held up to youth as a means of easier life. This was the equivalent of saying that the professions were easier than physical labor. We know now that the so-called professions are not only no easier, but that most occupations which demand physical labor are honorable and dignified in exact pro- portion to the extent that scientific study and preparation are given them, and many of the labor walks of life have become as truly professions as law or medicine. Are all studies equally valuable? Many of us still believe in Greek and Latin as indispensable for culture, while others hold that experimental science has an equally cultural value and in addition the power of putting one in touch with his times. The dispute is by no means settled, but T regard it as significant that a man eminent for his achievements in engineering education, whom 1 recently visited, and who had no classics in his college course, is now studying and quoting Plato to support his advanced scientific theories and plans. In the founding of this college there were three partners, — an individual, a city, and a. great religious denomination in three states. That the purpose was most noble and the plan a wise one is amply demonstrated by the great measure of prosperity and usefulness already enjoyed. The individual has done his work and passed away. The other two partners by their very nature are likely to live as long as civilized society and Christian effort shall endure. The individual sought to encourage others, and not his personal exaltation, and would have preferred that his name should not be conspicuously attached to the enterprise. The fact that it has been used should serve only as a memorial to the high purpose and not in any measure to curtail the abiding and enthusiastic interest and support of the living partners. Just as a score of other colleges who bear names of individuals have received their great endowments from cities, churches, states, their own graduates and other large-hearted individuals, so, although the gift of Mr. and Mrs. Millikin has been vastly greater than were those of Harvard. Yale, Bowdoin, Dartmouth, Williams, Brown, it is hoped and anticipated that this college will draw to it for its development, sums so great from city and church and others that the Millikin gift will be no greater proportion of the total than are the original gifts of Harvard, Williams, Bowdoin, and others, to their present endowment. " The spirit of all true democracy is essentially altruistic. " The educational world certainly has great cause to rejoice that so many men with wealth have by their gifts adopted thousands of other people ' s children and by permanent endowment have reached forward into the indefinite future. Admitted to the company of Johns Hopkins, Stanford, Girard and others whose wealth will touch with fire studious youth for generations after the career of the donor is forgotten, is James Millikin, who left hi-- whole fortune to maintain for others what should best fit them for life. A great responsibility rests upon those who are to carry into execution this beneficent purpose. The Christian college is generally understood to mean one founded by or under " We scarcely ever have a chance to meet any more. " — Gail and Raleigh. Page 191 HmXHEMlLLII7E16t i lllllllimilllllllllllllllllllllllMllllimillllllllllllllllimiimilllimillllMMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIimillllllllllM the supervision of, or closely allied to. one of the recognized organizations of the Christian church. The Christian college has a distinct advantage over others in consciously providing religious and moral supervision and atmosphere. That these are appreciated is evidenced by the thousands who attend these institutions at the present time, when in many cases the facilities are inferior. Thirty years ago, and earlier, the college curriculum was essentially the same in the small denominational college as in all others, state, or independent, large or small. This was before the marvelous impetus given to technical studies by national and state appropriation;. The tremendous growth of state supported institutions has not operated to kill or permanently injure the others. It has rather tended to stimulate an interest in educa- tion and today the attendance in denominational and independent colleges is far greater than when the state movement began. A word of personal knowledge is in point. In the only state in New England which had a state university the numbers and income grew so rapidly that friends of three denominational colleges in the state feared they would suffer, yet the outcome showed in a decade an increase in each of the three of about one hundred per cent and greatly increased financial resources. Another excellent illustration is the growth of this institution in Decatur within fifty miles of the State University and the recent growth of others formerly called small colleges. But the denominational colleges must not forget that their primary purpose is education, — a preparation for life ' s work. If this is not offered in full, in addition to the essential and desirable religious atmosphere, students will go or be sent where it can be secured. It is obvious then that to maintain their present advantage and minister to the greatest possible numbers the quality and quantity of instruction of the Chris- tian colleges must not be inferior to the best to be found in the subjects which they have undertaken to teach. This does not mean that an institution wih 1000 students must have as many teachers and as much apparatus as one with 2000 or 5000, but it does mean that the teaching and the laboratory and shop facilities must be good enough so that the student upon graduating and taking his place in the industries or professions may have no cause to feel inferior or apologetic when in competition with the graduates of the best colleges in the land. If a college of 500 students and limited income cannot fit its graduates to be the peers of those from Cornell. Pennsylvania or Yale, or others, then it should not undertake so many lines. The essential results of a college course depend more particularly upon the teacher. The real teacher is one whose heart and soul is intent upon social service and that the highest type of social service. Could the stories be gathered together of the lives of sacrifice of those who are known by their students during the last half century to be the best teachers, especially in the middle West, in many of the colleges repre- sented here today, I know there would be found quite as much of heroism in them as in the more startling careers of the pioneers , or of missionaries in foreign lands. The college teacher should be a type of man who commands respect, not pity. The fact that he is willing to accept a salary which compares unfavorably with that of a book- keeper in a factory or a floorwalker in a department store leads many unconsciously to view him as living on semi-charity and as a non-producer, whereas if he is what he should be and in the majority of cases is, he is as truly a producer as a superin- tendent of industry, or an efficiency expert. His products are men and women, not woolens and groceries, and any man who is fit to assist in fashioning human material into usefulness is usually above demanding as a stipend the full commercial value of For zvho talks much, must talk in ruin.

Why then does he do it? Because his soul is above money, and fully one half of his compensation is not in money but in the joy of his part in the broadeniii-; and developing of human souls. Occasionally we have opportunities of measuring this part of the compensation. I have three very recent instances in mind. The pres- ident of a western agricultural college was offered $12,000 a year to manage an agricultural development scheme in the South, not at teaching position. He declined it. His present salary is one-half that offered. A professor in our neighboring institution whose salary I do not know, but it could not have been much different from those paid to others in the same university, has been urged again and again to leave teaching to accept commercial work and has refused. The world ' s measure of the man is seen in the fact that he has at last been persuaded to leave his work for a single year for $25,000. The Secretary of the State Board of Agriculture of Kansas has for many years been a teacher of agriculture to the inhabitants of his state. His relation to the people is analogous to that of the strong college professor to his students. The recent Governor of Kansas told me within a month that this man flatly refused an appointment as United States Senator because he would not leave his work, and the same gentleman was told by the Governor of Missouri that he could afford to pay Mr. Coburn $200,000 a year, if he could do for Missouri what he had already done for Kansas. The salary he receives is $3,500. I mention these things only to show that the type of man a college professor should be, and generally is, is not a self-seeking individual, but one who holds his work in such respect that he is happy to do it without expecting full commercial value. The real teacher is a high type of man. Teachers are about the only people who are not publicly judged by their success in their own profession. A railroad president is judged by his management of the affairs of a railroad. A judge by the wisdom of his decisions, an engineer by his construction of a successful bridge, but a teacher too often instead of being judged by his work, that is, the character and learning of his pupils, is measured by a book he has written or an occasional speech. Right here is a Question which must be answered particularly by the great universities. Is the advertising value of a man, he who has written an important book or made a startling discovery, of more value to the institution than a really great teacher who by the very nature of his work cannot be so widely known? T leave this to the great universities to settle. Perhaps they may have the financial means to afford both types of men but in my opinion the college needs teachers and great teachers, and this means more than scientific pronunciamentos, it means character and Christianity. The faculty must be composed of men and women constantly growing in their chosen profession if they would inspire youth to growth. Treadmill repetition of former work produces apathy and disgust in teacher and pupil alike. No subject is so fixed that new light may not be thrown upon it by an inspiring personality and if it cannot be made to interest the student there is fully as likely to be something lacking in the teacher as in the student. Parallel to this thought, the president should be an inspiration to the faculty. In recent years of rapid educational development, such kaleidoscopic variety of duties have been put upon him that he cannot keep abreast the progressive leaders in the faculty in their own specialties, but he can keep sufficiently informed to discuss with reasonable intelligence and much sympathy the ideas, hopes and needs of each department. " He needs must criticize, no matter who dances. " — Alex Long.

This might be correct in a purely commercial enterprise; i. e., get the students and then give them what you can. but the high ideal for a true college is to be so great a success as to the quality and integrity of instruction that all the numbers that can be properly cared for will be drawn by the integrity and the quality. The real purpose of the college is the development of body, brain, and soul. To drop for a moment the consideration of the teacher, let us note that the management of a college is a business proposition equal to that of any factory with as many employes as there are students and faculty. A large part of the world be- lieves that churches, charities and educational institutions are rather decently respecta- ble mendicants, which ma} ' be tolerated in good society and will not be very trouble- some if put off with a fair amount of money. But this off-hand way of treating these three great agencies is not the way by which the world ' is to be civilized, the unfor- tunate made independent, and the youth educated. Those who have had the oppor- tunity or necessity of learning the facts know that the highest success in the main purpose demands as a condition of their success a business management of the same keenness, integrity and efficiency as in the most highly organized commercial or industrial enterprise. Integrity in an institution is as essential as in an individual. Through the spurring of ambition, institutions have been led to announce a program which is beyond their ability to carry out in a thoroughly satisfactory manner. Students may be attracted and retained for a time but no course, department, or subject should be announced w hich the institution cannot supply in a thoroughly creditable manner. The curriculum offered should be within the financial ability to supply well prepared teachers, suitable apparatus and books. It is better to have a reputation for integrity of work in a narrow field than for a multiplicity of headline announcements. An institution for purely commercial purposes may use the devices of advertising quacks. Happily these are few. One of two results cannot fail to follow. Such an institution will -icken and die or it will diminish its advertised promises and improve the character of its instruction. I have in mind just now two of the latter type and several of the former. I do not know of their making any pretense of being Christian colleges. A Christian college best shows its sincerity, in the great work of Christianizing the world, by the integrity of its scholarship. We have said that a strong faculty is the greatest need of an institution of learning. True as this is, it is also true that the greatest teachers need laboratories and libraries to enable them to do the most effective work. If it is proper at this time to speak of one of our most urgent necessities, I should say that it is for books for the library; that books are the tools of every department, even the most technical. Students must have at hand books of reference in all subjects, and touching every study they are pursuing. Tn history, sociology, economics, chemistry, and electricity progress is so rapid that to be without the publications of the year immediately past, one is out of date. A practical working library for the number of students here enrolled in the excellent variety of courses pursued, should not contain less than 30 to 50 thousand carefully selected volumes. To all who are familiar with the libraries of manv colleges and universities of smaller scope, this will seem a very moderate estimate. Educators all agree that the body as well as the mind and soul should receive " He sleeps no mere, than doth a nightingale. " — Homer Bricker. Page Id J, NINETEENF01 BTEEN IIHIIIIimilllllllllMIIIIHIIIIMlllllll1llllllllllllllllllllllj[IIIIIHIIII[ljll[IIIIIIMlllllMlllin proper attention. But I believe all agree that in America we have not gone as far toward the solution of this phase of education as with the others. The great problem is to provide such system and facilities that every student shall get exactly what he needs to keep him in perfect physical condition. A few years ago there was a serious evil of professional players brought in surreptitiously or otherwise for the season, solely to insure victor} ' in inter-collegiate contests. This for some time has been generally eliminated by the adoption of eligibility rules all over the country. Honesty in the game is thus more certain. This improvement alters but little the main problem of healthy exercise for all. The best that is generally done in this line is to concentrate all effort and expense on the excessive training of one or two score of the already must vigorous individuals, and compulsory, perfunctory gymnasium practice for all others who cannot succeed b} ' hook or crook in escaping it. This is not in one college, but everywhere, whereas when the subject is discussed in associations and conventions, all recognize the difficulty and hope that others will find a solution. Last year the total football squad at Harvard, including the ' varsity, freshman and class teams, was 172 out of 4.19-1 students: Yale less than :200 out of 3,000; Princeton 130 out of 1,571. Similar proportions are found everywhere. The ideal, of course, is that everyone take a part in some healthful outdoor game, sufficient for health and not too strenuous, and have such prescribed gymnasium exercises as will correct any deformity or weak- ness. The representative of the Rhodes Scholarship Trust. Dr. Parkin, tells us that in the great English schools and universities those who do not engage daily in outdoor sports and games are the exception, but with us those who do are the striking ex- ception. One institution only in this country, so far as I know, has made serious effort to right the wrong. That is the famous Phillips Andover Academy. I do not know that I can do better in portraying the seriousness of the problem than by giving a concrete illustration of the conditions that brought about the Andover reform, and quote a few words of description. " Yale and Princeton were nearly at the end of the annual battle; the score was Princeton 6, Yale 3. The ball was Yale ' s on Princeton ' s 30 yard line, fourth down, ten yards to go and only three minutes to play. None but the Yale coaches knew that ten minutes before a new drop kicker had been put in the game. Eighteen, twenty- three, fifty-seven, came the signal. The unknown dropped ten yards back to take the pass, standing on Princeton ' s 10 yard line and at an angle that made the apparent try for goal seem almost pathetic. Both stands, were now silent. The Princeton line crouched for the attack, Yale ' s grimly set to resist it. Back came the ball, a perfect pass. It was caught, poised for a moment, deftly dropped and then, in the very face of the charging Tiger forwards, caught on the kicker ' s toe the instant it hit the ground and with a powerful drive of the leg shot straight and true at the Princeton goal post. A roar from the 40,000 spectators was begun but not completed as they rose with the ball, voices hushed, bodies strained, eyes glued upon it as it flew in a long graceful arc goalwards. Its momentum checked, players and spectators hung hysterically in the air with it. Then it fell, bounced lightly upon the bar, hesitated for a fraction of a terrible second and dropped — over. A substitute drop kicker — an unknown — had saved the game for the Eli ' s. The players, who but a moment before had held the hysterical attention of 40,000 were now only twenty-two blanketed boys with white tense faces, some with heads erect, some sobbing and wandering aimlessly among strangers. " All this is interesting. — exciting — a Roman holiday. Perhaps from some point of view it is worth while, but is there nothing more to physical education? Does " We grant, atlho he hail much wit, he was very shy of using it. " — Paul Atrd. Page 195 3TOMlLLIPEm» in! milliriimimi ml llliiiiin ii in iiiiiliiil ■■i iinu i 11 jiiii ' imTiiii ' i niiii mlil liTi ' miiiiii ' iiThl iinin iiiiiiiiiTriiiiiiu " iiiiiiiiiniiiiiliiTii iiliN n " u it not give students and the outside world a distorted idea of values? The first to brave college opinion and alumni sentiment was Andover. The undertaking was to put physical education where it should be and give sport a proper sense of proportion. Andover has not found it necessary or desirable to abandon its annual great game with Exeter, but it has dropped, all paid coaches. Out of door sports are made compulsory. The regular faculty are the leaders and teachers in the sports as they are in mathematics and Greek. There are twelve football teams, as many in baseball, tennis, track, etc., out of a total of 500. There is no training table. Each boy learns what he should and should not eat. Everybody is in condition. From the greater number it is easier to select the strong team for outside game s than it was to train the chosen few under the old plan. The whole faculty, many of whom were skeptical at first, are now a unit in favor of the new idea. It has come to stay. They say it is " one of the most democratic ever put into effect in this democratic institution. " I am not prepared to say that the Andover plan is the one for all colleges and schools, but it is surely an example of a step in the right direction. There have been worked out reasonably satisfactory methods of instruction in many subjects which all agree must be in a college course, but while we all agree that the physical welfare of the student is paramount, we arc yet a long way from finding a satisfactory way of providing it. Tt perhaps may be unavoidable that college life reflects the social life of the country outside. I believe that most of the cultured and thinking people deplore the pace toward luxury and extravagance into which we have all been lashed for the past few years. If there is any check that can be put upon the movement, may it not be through the 300,000 students and teachers in our colleges and universities? Could life in all colleges be made as simple as it was even twenty-five years ago, it might have sufficient influence to affect the whole life of the country. Great reforms, moral and economical, like those in the temperance, tariff and labor fields have been effected through beginnings less influential than would be a concerted movement of all colleges. This means organization. The development of our public school system in the past half century has been accomplished very largely through organizations of school teachers, state and national. A national organization of colleges could wield a con- structive influence in social, moral and industrial conditions in the United States greater than any conceivable, unless all religious sects could be immediately welded into one and work as a unit according to the highest ideals of the best of them. The problems for all colleges are in the main the same. Institutions, like individ- uals are, or should be, equally free and independent, and entitled to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness: also, like individuals they encounter widely varied, conditions and details connected with the solution of the same great problem. What is best for our youth? For each generation the answer will be different. The programs of studies that are now good will be improved, but always more important than the study of the curriculum will he the question: Who shall be our teachers? The college exists for the undergraduate, not to give prestige to a town, or social position to officers, or publicity to faculty, but for the best possible instruction, and most complete development, of the youth who entrust themselves to its guardianship.

Bonus, Daniel — Conductor of the best college orchestra in America, known as the Millikin Sympathetic Orchestra. Commenced his musical career when extremely small and always yelled in chords of the diminished seventh. When quite young heard of a band at Millikin patronized by nobody, and came to drum up trade. Has done so. Is also making a noble attempt to subdue society chatter during concertos. Found Mozart ineffective and gradually worked down thru Beethoven, Olds and Cole to his own composition, which did the business. Author: How I Wrote My Song. Risley, Walter J. Has always been prominent, from the time when he wailed during the prayer at church until the present time. When three years old he informed his mother that the milkman had made a mistake of two cents in figuring up the bill. Educated at Michigan, Illinois and Harvard. Famed not only for mathematical ability, but for prowess in tennis and golf. Author: " How I Helped the Orlandians Win, " " The Inadvisability of a Compulsory Athletic Fee, " and " How to Inaugurate Presi- dents. " Snyder, Lucy. Born in Kansas. Presumably of Scotch ancestry, as she wear the plaid. Entire education as well as degree acquired in Kansas. Heard rumors of Millikin library and came to quiet them. Author: " The Criminality of Chewing Gum in a Library, " " The Man at the First Table. " Douglass, Phyllis. Born in Paris, Conn., in 1864. Had measles and egotism when six years old. Recovered from the former, but still suffers from (he ravages of an incurable case of ego. Went to National Park Seminary to receive finishing touches. His short course at Harvard needs no comment. .Subsequent travels in France and Spain are to blame for his misplaced eyebrow. Author: " The Uncouth Woman of the Middle West, " " College Girls I Have Known. " ' Her hair zvus as bright as the weaves of a rill. When the sun on the brink of his setting stands still.

Sig Alph House Shaken as by an Earthquake — Inhabitants Awaken to Find Beds Rocking Like Cradles. A wild scramble ensues as everyone rushes to the windows to escape. As they stood shivering in the early January morn, some one yelled, " Where is Fat? " A hasty glance failed to reveal him. Two men, braver than the rest, went back into the shaking house. They picked their way over the furni- ture, and finally reached the dormitory. From the farther end of the room came groans, interspersed with dashes and exclamation marks. The rescue party rushed frantically across the room. On the floor lay a writhing mass of bedclothes, from which the rubicund face of Fat Stokes soon emerged. " Hang it all , " he growled, " I fell out of bed. " Miss Conant (in Senior English, after Mr. Bonus played a violin solo in chapel): " What did that make you think of?

It consists of only four principal but simple parts, all of which are easily kept clean. You can toast on the glowing coils of calorite wire. You can grill, boil and stew in the grill and stew pans. You can fry in the cover of the stew pan. This cover is of aluminum, therefore, you can bake pan cakes on it without using grease.
