FOREWORD OOKS are eternal monuments attesting the impassioned activity, versatility, and prodigious produc- e tivity of human mentality. The cumulative thoughts and ideas thus symbolized and preserved in com- ,H av municable form, impose themselves upon the consciousness of the peruser as peremptory orders or i s prescriptions, and, additionally, as propaedeutics of genuine culture and intellectual efficiency. ' Books differ in multitudinous Ways. Some go into extensive detail, and accordingly abound in complicated phraseology and verbose delineations. Others, in contradistinction, possess a peculiar style of sim- plicity and apparent attractiveness, by virtue of which, the rational faculty, in its assiduous process of acquisition. is not hopelessly confused. The copiousness and diversity of the material submitted for this book compel us, with our limited space, to adopt a style devoid of all magniloquence and unaccustomed phraseology. The object is to present a book for reading which will be interesting and will entertain the most careless reader, and at the same time fill his mind with a knowledge of the various occurrences incident to college life. Where language fails to set forth what is desired, the artist has been summoned, and by her dexterous hand the illustrations have been made one of the most pleasing features of the book, and greatly enhance its interest and Worth. This work contains sketches of the lives of those who have figured most prominently in the history of our university for the last half century, and graphic descriptions of the most important historical occurrences of the present and former times. The accounts given concerning all, from the freshman class to the faculty and rprepsf' will be found exceedingly interesting and profitable reading. The statistical and miscellaneous part of the book is a compendium of useful facts and figures. This book is submitted in the hope that it Will find a Warm Welcome in hundreds of Otterbein homes, and with the firm conviction that its patrons Will be, invariably, its friends and admirers. It is not too much to say that never before in the history of book-making has a Work containing such a vast amount of useful information been presented in so attractive a form and given to the public at so low a price. lt is a book for the masses-for the old and the young, the rich and the poor. A glance over its pages will serve to convey an idea of the extent and variety of its contents, yet its real excellence and value cannot be appreciated until it is read from beginning to end. I

The first floor of this hall is devoted wholly to biology and geology. The laboratory and lecture-room are well equipped with appara- tus and specimens. The second floor is devoted to physics, and the third to chemistry. Besides the main labora- tory and lecture-room, there are other small rooms equipped for those who desire to specialize along this line.
