To HERMAN G. JAMES. President of Ohio University, we dedicate this 1936 ATHENA. Dr. James in his first year at Ohio University has turned the wheels of progress, inaugurating new programs of vital importance to the maintenance of the oldest college northwest of the Alleghemes. In the short time that he has been here, he has put new life into the university. Every department in the university has responded to his eagerness, his keen judgments, and his leadership. Dr. Herman James was president of the University of South Dakota at the time of his election by the Ohio University Board of Trustees. He is a graduate of the University of Illinois, receiving his M. A. and Ph. D. degrees at Columbia. He was professor of government at the University of Texas, Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Nebraska. Dean of the graduate college at the same university, and. in 1929. went to the Univer- sity of South Dakota to serve as president. In addition to his work in the United States, he went as private secretary with the Amer- ican delegation to the Fourth Pan-American Conference at Buenos Aires, Argentina, and to the Centenary of Chilean Independence. Santiago. He was also a lecturer in the University of Leipzig. Germany. Dr. James plays golf, the violin, contract bridge, and chess. He excels in these as he excels in his life work; but the wide range of his academic capabilities is even more astounding than the wide range of his hobbies. He is noted as an editor and author, for within fourteen years he has written a large number of widely circulated books, and has edited three well-known publications. He is a member of the follow- ing organizations: Phi Kappa Psi. Phi Delta Phi. Order of Coif. Phi Beta Kappa Fraternity, and Scabbard and Blade.

count be proven. The others have as a matter of fact been eliminated with greater or less success, and could easily be removed from the picture altogether. What of the charge that the publication of a pictured annual depicting the events of each college year in the form of an illustrated chronicle is undignified and incom- patable with a grown-up conception of college or university The answer to that seems to be that as long as college or university life is something more than merely preparation for and attendance at classes, or perhaps even completion of work by correspondence or by advanced standing in examinations, the annual is a logical and proper concom- itant of those other phases of American college or university life. Institutions that, under the pressure of economic neces- sity or because of a maturity complex, have abandoned the publication of an annual, have discovered that as long as they were a college or university " community " , made up largely of young men and women in their late ' teens and early twenties, the ormssion of the college annual left a dis- tinct and regrettable void. So I venture to express the hope and conviction that this ATHENA and its successors will continue to fill in the most satisfactory fashion possible the unquestionable role that may be theirs in the continuing play of the college stage
