been sounded and named. as a clue. ll is a science ot' intervals. This is an
essential part ot' Public School Music and is a vital part ot' any school cur-
riculum. This study is called "solt'eggio."
Vocal instruction in the Public School Music is not necessary, but the
solleggio part is valuable to every student. XVe nmst read music as we read
our grammar. or any other study: without hearing the sounds. Solteggio is
the first stcp towards this desideratum.
Singing is ot great help to the pianist. Any method that takes up the
two clet's in the early stages and does not cling too closely to the key ol' tl,
is good. liut no method is good without a good teacher. Only hc. who can
demonstrate every possibility. is a good teacher. The sympathetic bond
between pupil and teacher must never be lost sight ol: it is a most impor-

the foremost living composer, though not what we expected ot' llotmann.
This is the age ol' scientilic pedagogy. "Education" is derived from the
l.atin "educo" meaning "to bring out." and it is the aim of every teacher to
elicit all they can from thc pupil that he naturally has instead ol' trying to

others that will enable thc youngest student to play and comprehend.
The time is al hand when music has its rightful place in the education
ot' our children and only those who are well qualitied in the reading and
execution ot' it may be able to procure positions in our schools and colleges.

Vos Salutamus, tum Valete
S we send this Arhor Vitae to the press we lind il necessary
to stop and pen a few lilies to carry our greetings to fellow
students and our heartfelt gratitude to our helpers every-
where. XVe found at the very heginning that we had a united
support such as we never thought of hefore from the stu-
dents. As our work has progressed we have found that every
appeal has met with a response, such as we could hardly
have hoped for.
Especially do we wish to express our thanks to the Stall' whose
untiring elforts have la1'gcty lnade this hook what it is, and lo the Art
Department, who under Bliss Sinclair and Ntiss liutcher, have given us
such splendid illustrations.
XVe hope that as this hook goes forth it may tl'llty he a 'l'ree of Life
and that il may inspire higher and hetler achievements from those who
read its pages.
XVhatever may he its intrinsic value, il must stand as a continued
triumph over difficulties.
From the tirst move we have mel with things seemingly impossihte
to overcome. hut we have found that lhe true spirit of College life is that
of pushing ditficulties aside, so that we think in this respect we have so
much the more made our hook represent the spirit of the school.
XVe have no douht that the critic can lind many tlaws hut we are
not sending this hook out for that class ot' people. YVe are intending to
please our fellow students, who in years to come will wish to look hack
to the old days in our Alma Nlatcr. in the year of nineteen tifleen.
And now farewell. 'l'he year that is gone has heen titled with much
of hoth failure and triumph. No douht to all of us at times have come
suggestions of failure, of defeat. Uftentimes the reward seemed hardly
worth the price. yet we have struggled on and now as we near the end of
our school work and stop to take a hackward view at the path over
which we have come. we cannot hut feet that we have gotten a little
farther on our way, that we have risen, at least, to some height. Like the
traveler on the mountain side. the way seems rough and often he is
going down rather than upg yet tinally he emerges on a mountain peak
and tinds that he in his toilsome path, has risen perhaps even mites
ahove the plain helow.
And now may we, fellow students, in our work in life make use ot
the trials and triumphs of this year to good advantage, for in the words
of the poet:
"I aln a part of all that l have met
Yet. all experience is hut an arch,
Where thru' gleams that nntraveled world
XVhose margin fades forever and forever
XVhen l move."
