 When these two girls represent Peru, who can stand against us? All who do better look well to their laurels. (ilenn Kelley is quiet, unobtrusive and not truculent but when he once gets stirred for the light it would take a buzz saw in motion to stop his onslaught. He thinks and then thinks some more. What he says is to the point and he generally Moors his opponent with blows too formidable to be resisted. Stephen Ducrisch is a modern Stephen A. Douglas. Both have much debating stock in their blood, both arc thinkers, both are of a size, “both are witty, both arc wise.” Both whittle an argument to a point and then knock the point off. His oratory is patterned after that of Douglas and his blows are just as telling. Talbot Hunt is just the opposite of Deurisch as to size and when he shows his strength in argument and quick wit and ever ready story that is pat, we are greatly reminded of that eminent American who was always reminded of a story. Hunt is a voracious reader and especially enjoys English subjects. His brains, his appearance, his analytic powers ought to put fear into the ranks of the enemy. Frederick Kuhlnian has an excellent voice, an athletic manner, and an appearance which are in his favor. He is a modern Antaeus and we always find him getting up when we think we have him floored. His mind is always ready to sec the inconsistency of the other’s arguments and woe be to him who varies ever so little from the point at issue. Ray Robertson a man of excellent voice, force, and ability has been picked from the student body to take the place of John Allsman, who had to leave school on account of the sickness of his father. Mr. Robertson has proved himself a good man in almost every place of importance among the student efforts. He has a fine stage presence, is not afraid of anyone, and has ability to amass facts and figures in a forceful way. Verne Chatelain has been a debater for a number of years and has always been able to do mighty well. He is a tireless worker, has a keen analytic mind, and is always ready for an emergency. He has good presence, a fine voice and is not easily embarrassed. He has always had the ability of showing an argument in its greatest force ami his confidence in his subject has never been able to beget confidence in his enemy. Richard Meissner is a debater of much experience. He is class president and has an unusually fine opportunity to show his caliber. His voice is big and strong, he thinks fast and without effort. His experience in public speaking has given him an easy platform grace, which will he in his favor. He is always busy and is a good worker. We expect much from him in the coming contest. We have been very fortunate this year in having Reverend IVter Cope of the Christian church to assist us in the preparation of the debaters for their contest. Reverend Cope is a college debater of much experience, having debated six times during his his college career and was always on the winning team. W e shall never forget his services since he has sacrificed so many other things that he might help us. Fifteen 'Rahs for Cope. l9j7

y ri wa 7 of Sjont 5 lEtlu to (Onm My intense longing was formerly for a home of richness and splendor. I wished to have the kind of place where it is natural to say, “My hat, James," and motor to a pink tea; the sort of place where the betterment of the ignorant poor is the topic of conversation, while the high iron railing keeps the sidewalk pedestrians from touching the walls of the magnificient edifice. Money is not a matter to be considered there. The great are called by their first names. There one speaks of “the millionaire I met at Newport,” and “the young count with whom I traveled in Provence." In those circumstances it is easy to refer to “the winning of the international cup-race by my yacht,” “the record my bay horse made in the derby at Kpsom Downs,” and “the way I played faro, and roulette at Monte Carlo." My ideals have changed, however, and conditions such as lack of ready cash may further alter my plans; but my tastes do not yet require a hovel on Poverty Boulevard. My artistic sense has not quite evolved to the stage when I am satisfied by a hut built of flattened tin cans and adobe. My demand is not quite met by a bent rusty stove pipe for a chimney. A small, but neat and comfortable house is my desire at present, and will be my desire until my oil wells yield their ten thousand barrels a day, and until I get my patent on “The New Improved Fly Swatter." The country, where one can get the pure air and sunshine, suits me. Yet the advantages of being in touch with the city, and not living in narrow isolation will be sought. The privilege of an outdoor life and humanizing contact with the soil is beneficial. 'Phis country place will be my home always,—during the summer’s long days, when the autumn rain beats steadily on the roof, and when its cheery lights shine out across the winter’s drifted snow. Pardon me for being indefinite in regard to details, since they arc variable and can hi changed indefinitely. One cannot say that materials of certain dimensions, quality, and quantity will make a home. The chief thing is that the resulting interiors do not look like hotel lobbies. There are certain things felt rather than seen that make a home. It is questionable if there can be abiding happiness in a residence where the deed is held by some New York real estate company, or a mortgage is held by a Shy-lock in some humbler city. Fire proof material is preferred, because it is a good business proposition. As for all real economics, the first cost may be more, but an air of permanence is given that no frame building can have. The danger of Indian raids is over; consequently, better structures are being erected in this country. Therefore, let my house be built like London bridge: “Build it up with stone so strong Then ’twill last for ages long.” Americans developed the grand American type of architecture, the colonial. At a lower cost more beautiful buildings can be built in this type, than in the Gothic, Italian, or French Renaissance. Also, because it is artistic, I, .as a patriotic American, favor the colonial style with its balance and proportion. It is said that other styles of buildings may come and go, but the colonial is always correct. The rooms will be light and airy, with high ceilings. A good modern system of 1917
