E  AT LEOPOLD HOTEL RECITAL IS SUCCESS SPLENDID LECTURE  The most briliant
social affair of  ;he Summer season was a banquet  leld by the Senior class
at the Leo-told  hotel, Thursday evening, July  9th. The alumni and faculty
were  uests at the occasion. This is the  irst time in the history of the
school  hat the July Seniors have held any  uch social function. We hope
that  hey they established a precedent.  The color scheme of the evening
was  ink. The tables were artistically dec-rated  with Shepherdess baskets
of  ink roses and sweet peas. Ferns  (Continued on Page Sixteen.)  The
recital given by Mrs. Daven-port-  Engberg, Mrs Irving J. Cross and  Mrs.
G. W. Nash on the evening of  July 18 was pronounced "excellent," 
"wonderful," "a thing not soon to be  forgotten" by the large crowd that
at­tended.  Bach charmed the audience  with her artistic
interpretations. Many  students who are here for the last  time pronounced
this recital a fitting  climax to the excellent musical per­formances 
heard during their resi­dence  in Bellingham.  Mr. Klemme, who is with
us for the  summer, gave one of the best lectures  of the year in assembly
Monday. The  Man Under the Shadow was the sub­ject.  Mr. Klemme's talk
was clear cuv.  and every word was to the point.  "The world loves
success," said Mr.  Klemme, "and the men of affairs,  playing with wealth,
honor and po­sition  are the ones whose success is  seen the soonest.
Their motto is of-times  'get riches honestly if you can—  but get
riches.' Far too often suc­cess  is measured by the dollar sign.

2 THE WEEKLY MESSENGER, SATURDAY, JULY 28, 1917  Dr. Nash's mother and
sister will vis­it  here during the coming month. They  will motor to
various places in Wash­ington.  Mr. Bever will stay at home.  Mr.
Hughes is not certain what he  will do.  Miss Brown spent the week-end in 
Seattle.  Misses Druse and Beardsley enter­tained  at Sunday dinner.
Plates were  laid for six.  Mrs. R. W. Smith, formerly a mem­ber  of
the Expression department, vis­ited  the Normal last Friday.  Misses
Wilson Mead Mottman and  Brower visited with Miss Sumner last  Sunday at
her summer home at Index.  Miss Pierce spent the week-end with  Miss Sands.
 Picnic breakfasts are almost as  popular as picnic dinners. Anyhow,  such
proved the case last Sunday  morning. The place was Whatcom  Palls and the
early birds were Misses  McCown, Willoughby, Brown, Davis,  Cummins,
Ormsby, Harms, Mrs. Nash.  Dr. Kirkpatrick -eceived word from  his son that
he hac arrived safely in  Prance.  Mr. E. J. Klemme has received an 
invitation to give the Alumni address  for the Normal School in Indiana
from  which he graduated —steen years ago.  Because of previous
arrangements, he  cannot accept.  A young man and a young woman  leaned on
the front gate. They were  lovers. It was moonlight. He was  loath to
leave, as the parting was the  last. He was about to go away.  "I'll never
forget you," he said, "and  if death should claim me, my last  thought
would be of you."  "I'll be true to you,' she sobbed. "I'll  never love
anybody else as long as I  live."  They parted. Six years later he
re­turned.  His sweetheart of former years  was married. They met at a
party.  She had changed greatly. Between  dances recognition took place. 
"Let me see," she mused, "was it  -you or your brother who was my old 
•..sweetheart?"  "Neither," he replied. 'Probably it  •was my
father."  Mr. Carver (in lunch room): "Stub,  my cocoa's cold!"  Stub:,
"Well, why don't you put on  your cap."  Sunday evening nine young ladies 
of the "Dorm" celebrated with a de­licious  supper the birthday of
Miss  Pearl Timmen. In the center of the  table incense was burning in a
little  long wished for bronze burner which  was a most useful birthday
gift to  "Timmy." A large, three-layer pink and  white birthday cake had
been con­tributed  by Miss Anderson, the cook,  and was certainly
enjoyed by the girls.  This was decorated with little yellow  candles.  The
party finally and reluctantly  broke up but with a hearty toast to 
"Timmy." 'May she never grow old."  Dr. Kirkpatrick said in his talk Tuet
gt;  day, that one is being educated all the  while he is awake. No wonder
Ed  Rairdon knows so much.  Mildred Tuttle and Elizabeth Arnold  former
students at B. S. N. S., are at­tending  Normal at Ellensburg this 
summer. Miss Tuttle is faithfully  learning the duties set forth in "First 
Aid." Miss Arnold kills time by beat­ing  her opponents playing
tennis.  Miss Clara Gibson '16, former treas­urer  of the Y. W. C. A.,
spent the past  week visiting friends in this city.  Out of the eleven
school teachers  who took the physical examination for  the Naval Reserves
at Bellingham,  only one failed to pass the examina­tion.  Andrew
Shold, a Normal student of  '14-15 and '15-16, visited last week.  Ira
Miller, also a student in '14-15  and '16, came in from his ranch
Mon­day  and successfully passed the exami­nation  for the Naval
Reserves When  asked if he had any bad habits he  answered "None now, but I
used to  ditch classes at Normal."  John Davenport, student here last  year
and a member of the basketball  and track team, has also joined the  Naval
Reserves.  Paul Thompson has been elected to  teach in the consolidated
district of  Ferndale for the coming year.  Ben Tidball, former student at
Nor­mal  and now a senior at U. of W., vis­ited  us Wednesday. 
Philip Montag, Ab and Dab Hennes,  in Johnny Miller's Ford, spent
Wednes­day  afternoon at Elizabeth Jones'  cherry tree at Marietta.

THE WEEKLY MESSENGER, SATURDAY, JULY 28, 1917 3  A LEHER FROM  THE FRONT 
DEAR STUDENTS:  These are the men and firms who by their kind and generous 
co-operation have helped to make the Weekly Messenger a suc­cess.  If,
at any future time, you are able to further patronize  them, they will
esteem and deserve your preference.  Clippings from a letter received by 
A. T. Dellplain, from his brother, who  is a Sergeant of Engineers in the
first  line trenches somewhere in France.  "You fellows who have seen
service  in the United States army think you  have done some soldiering,
but wait, if  the U. S. army should happen to come  over here they will
find that facing a  bitter, well trained, scientific enemy  like the Huns
is vastly different from  watching the border line against a  roving band
of Mexican snipers. That  they would show credit to the flag is  without
doubt, but the Canadians and  Tommies are dubious excepting if  Roosevelt
came with some of his old  timers. Some American troops are  over here but
if the U. S. don't hurry  up and do a bit before the war ends,  there will
be many comments about it  looking like commercialism. Just the  same the
U. S. army would surely be a  great help in terminating this awful  war. We
(the boys) don't look for  peace much before the winter cam­paign 
begins, if at all, and if not then  not till German soil is reached. The 
Germans are losing, but they don't  think so. The prisoners I have seen 
and heard here all assert that Ger­many  is winning. If loosing ground
is  winning-, they certainly are, and at a  rapid rate. The Germans will
not face  bayonets willingly, but will only admit  that it is our artillery
that plays hob  with them. Their artillery is deadly  accurate, they know
every spot on the  maps, and undoubtedly this country is  lousy with spies,
but we are return­ing  3 shells to their one. It's like a  Hun
prisoner I spoke to last Thursday  said, when I asked him if they had 
plenty of ammunition, "Sure we have  heaps of ammunition, but we haven't 
whole munition factories full to throw  over like you Britishers do." This 
Bosche came from the U. S. when the  war began.  We get blue at times, but
when we  walk over miles of regained territory  almost before the ground is
cooled off  from the barrage, we feel that we have  done our best, and hope
to live through  it and come home and forget it all.  Our casualty list
grows daily; I have  Collars Collars  You will notice a marked  difference

CECIL A. FOLSOM,  Bus. Mgr.  been through some narrow squeaks.  Only last
week nine men were wound­ed  by high explosives, that were with  me,
two Imperials killed, and I only  was knocked down. The next day I  got cut
on the thumb with a piece of  flying shell. I've gotten a dent in my  steel
sharpnel helmet from a shrapnel  shell. I hope I come through just the 
same.  The sights are terrible—it saddens  one—but it also
makes you get a  tighter hold on yourself and do your  share. Our last
advance was a com­plete  success, and at a small price, the  Bosche
surrendered almost without a  fight; and I don't wonder. The ground  looks
as if it had been churned—our  artillery fire was wonderful.
Prisoners  and wounded streamed in. We think  we captured about 6,500, but
"Quien  Sabe." The dead are being buried as  fast as possible. In some
places the  stench is worse than awful. Many  bodies buried two years ago
were un-eathred  by the shell fire. That no-man's  land is a sure enough
desolate  waste, but to think of it awhile back  makes a man sad, ar. it
was a most  beautiful country of old styles—old  chateaus with moats
around them,  winding cobblestone highways with  tall trees closely set,
innumerable flow­ers,  and fine old castles. The country  as yet
untouched by shell fire is all  like this, with quaint customs that are 
sometimes amusing. Old fashioned  three wheeled carts are driven by
an­cient  looking drivers, who hold but a  single rein.  But where the
Boches have been is  worse than ruin, they ruin people,  towns, homes,
fields and churches, and  they eiren girdli. the trees and tear up  gardei
s when they retreat.  Werter (our youngest brother) hass  been doing real
well so far, he got  through the Ypres' charge, and went  over Vimy ridge
in the recent work  there, and has only been wounded  twice, and that
merely a good shaking  up.  Send all the comic sections you can  get hold
of, and anv interesting maga­zines  you have—we just devour them
 —anything along this order is mighty  welcome especially the comic
supply  ments, they break the monotony so.  But write letters as often as
you can—  they mean rruch out here, and all the  boys eagerly look
for letters from  home ana friends.  Quotations from the recent eighth 
grade examinations:  Four digestive fluids are laxative  tonic, castor oil,

Literary  The session of the Bellmgham Nor­mal  which comes to an end
this week  has been an enjoyable one indeed.  Apparently no stone has been
left un­turned  by administration and faculty  to make the eight weeks
of summer  school a pleasant and profitable sea­son.  In the field of
music no more  talented artists could be obtained than  those who have
delighted Normalites.  Men and women of national promi­nence  have
delivered addresses from  our platform upon subjects of vital  import to
all. Scenes and tales fronv  other lands have been brought to us  by
citizens of the world. Nor have we  forgotten the adage "All work and no 
play makes Jack a dull boy." Picnics,  excursions, hikes, jaunts, strolls
and  so on indefinitely, have delighted our  leisure hours. Perhaps the
most en­joyable  feature of the term was the  excursion to the
wonderful district  around Glacier. The summer has in­deed  been
pleasant.  On behalf of the entire student body  of the Bellingham State
Normal we  wish to express to Dr. Nash, our be  loved and admired
president, and to  his loyal corps of teachers, our appre­ciation  for
their help, counsel and con­sideration  during the past weeks. Wt 
wish to assure the administration that  almost to a man we are loyal and
can  be depended upon in any emergency.  The editor desires to express his 
gratitude to the members of his staff  who have been absolutely dependable 
and to others who have contributed  articles from week to week. What  would
otherwise have proved an ex­tremely  difficult and sometimes
un­pleasant  task has been greatly light­ened  by these helpers.
He has done  his best and you have the result.  Much credit is due Miss
Olive Edens,  faculty member of the staff, who has  been tireless in her
efforts for the  paper.  All friends must part sooner or lat­er. 
Here's hoping we all meet again.  Forlthe Best and Purest Wholesome Candy

of the Whatcom  igh, Principal Weir of the Fairhaven  igh, and Principal
Ewing of the  oeder grade school assisted in the  irious departments.  Miss
Marguerite Munro, who teach-i  in Everett next year, assisted in the  rt
department.  Mr. Robert Knohn, director of phys-al  instruction in the
sixty Portland  hools, and one of the foremost phys­ical  educators in
the Northwest, favor­ed  us for two weeks with his presence.  His four
classes each day were filled  to the limit by 500 or 600 students  learning
military marching, interpre­tative  dancing, setting up exercises, 
school gymnastics and plays and  games.  Another interesting feature has 
been the dramatic readings given each  Thursday afternoon by Professor W. 
P. Gorsuch, head of the expression de­partment  of the State
University.  Dr. A. E. Winship, a prominent lec­turer  and editor,
gave two addressee,  and Dr. Hall, of Willamette university,  gave one.  We
have had many interesting as­semblies  and addresses by our owi» 
teachers.  Mrs. Jones and Miss Walker, assist­ants  in boys and girls
club work, and  sent to us by the extension depar*  ment at Pullman, each
gave helpful  lectures and demonstrations for a  week on food conservation.
Also the  scope and benefits of club work in the  state  Musical programs
have not been  missing. The first was a recital given  by the pupils of
Mrs. I. J. Cross, our  instructor in piano. The second was  in the form of
a student loan fund  concert which netted almost $100.  Those who
contributed were: Mrs.  Engberg, first violin; Mr. Hughes, sec­ond 
violin; Mr. Clark, viola; and Mr.  Cornish, cello. The other musical
ev­ening  was under the auspices of the  lecture course committee.
Those par­ticipating  in the program were Mrs.  Davenport-Engberg,
violinist; Mrs.  Irving J. Cross, pianist; and Mrs.  George W. Nash,
soprano.  As a climax, each student has been  given a free ticket of
admission to all  the numbers of the Chautauqua in this  city. We are
promised some delight­ful  programs.  Athletics and picnics have been
in  full sway. The largest picnic was giv­en  by the Students'
Association when  nearly all the school went to Glacier  for the day. 
Graduation will soon be passed.  There are 144 graduates to receive
di­plomas.  The baccalaureate services  were held at the First
Congregational  church, July 22, at 11 o'clock. The  sermon was preached by
the Rev.  Thomas J. Dent, of Aberdeen, S. D.  The commencement exercises
will be  held in the Normal auditorium Friday,  July 27.  The summer
session has been a pro  fitable as well as an enjoyable one.  President
George W. Nash appreciates  the fine spirit of co-operation and help  shown
by both the teachers and stu­dents,  and wishes everyone a very 
pleasant year.  Quotations and authors:  "Be good, Sweed Maid, and let who 
will be clever—Kingsley.  Roses are red,  Violets are blue,  Sugar is
sweet,  And so are you."  —Tennyson.  WHERE THE FACULTY  I L L SPEND

and up,  and up;  The longing has grown upon me  Until it is wellnigh
irresistible.  I want to write Palmer Method  ovals—  And straight

over, dot  over,  And Exercise 151.  I want to make stars and a "curly-cue"

the railing in front of the  balcony (  And of the table on the platform. 
And the worst of it all  Is that this is not all—  I even want to
flip my fountain pen'  And make a big blue black blot  And then fold the
paper over it  And crumple it all up  And throw it in the waste basket. 
But I know I mustn't do these  things—  Paper costs twice as much as
it did  last year—  So I resolutely put my fountain pei.  in its

THE WEEKLY MESSENGER, SATURDAY, JULY 28, 1917  THE ICE STOVE  In a secluded
spot in a far-away  mountain chain, well guarded by two  lofty white tipped
peaks lies the Val­ley  of the Magic Diamonds. And so  enchanted and
so mystic is it that not  one of the many travelers who have  gone that way
has ever been known to  have returned, nor has it been heard  that they
ever reached it.  The landscape is not dotted with  villages; shepherds
lead their flocks  another way; here wild animals  search in vain for food
and shelter,  for the Frost King is ever on guard,  always watching lest an
intruder en­ter  and mar or track his wonderful  garden, even at night
his beat leads  around up and down the long straight  rows of snow
diamonds.  Far into the night ceaselessly, tire­lessly  the Frost King
cuts the price­less  gems after the fashion of the  stars and sets
them in the smooth  white coverlet of the stars and sets  them in the
smooth white coverlet of  Mother Earth's bed.  This morning as the sun
weaves a  golden web so intricate in its design,  over the peaceful valley,
a shadow  falls across the surface of the snow,  we look up and see a
man—a young  man we judge from his apeparance,  standing in the
parted bushes at the  forest's edge.  At last he has found the place.  What
lies before hime we cannox  tell, only as we see a look of grim
de­termination  written in his face, but  we believe as we have always
be­lieved  what such a pilgrimage might  bring.  We watch him as he
stands in mute  contemplation of the task before him  —for it is a
task, perhaps it may take  him a day, maybe a year, but it does  not matter
when compared to his tri­umphant  return.  The harvest begins.  As the
last rays of the setting sun  are leaving long streaked finger stains  in
the western sky, a sigh escapes the  lips of the man as he glances at the 
bag beside him. From its dark folds*  a faint glimmer of a single diamond 
—a day's labor.  All too soon a day goes, the sun  sets, the shadows
come, the birds  sleep, and God shuts the gates of  today, and lets down
the bars that  lead into the golden path of oppor­tunity  away to the
fields of another  tomorrow.  To our hero time is nothing, and  day by day
we see him hurrying up  and down over the snow field gather­ing  the
fruits of the nightly work of  the Frost King. It is not for us to  ask
about his food, or his clothing or  shelter, for only in his work are we 
interested, we, too, anxious for the day  of his departure to come.  A year
passes.  hTe season is ever the same in tlit  Valley of the Magic Diamonds,
the  aged king ever working that the har-  Mr. K.rohn?s Classes in Folk
Dancing  vest might never cease. The man  wavers not. The future rises up
be­fore  him and lures him on. In the  field we see no change, even
the noon­day  sun does not blunt the sharp  points of the diamonds. 
Ten years have gone.  Time has not passed even this man  by for his once
black hair appears to  have been touched by the soft white  brush of the
Frost King, and he does  not step so briskly as he once did.  Twenty years.
 The leather pouch is full, the string  is tied, and a heavy burden it
seems  to the litle old man as he stoops pain­fully  to shoulder it.
The stinging cold  of the early morning is no less icy in  the warm sun as
he rises with the  same bright rays as those of twenty  years ago.  The
glittering field, always replen­ished  is just as beautiful since the 
loss of even one bag of the tiny  sparklers, stands ready to comfort the 
next traveler.  A thin streaked beard covers the  once handsome face, now
so sunken  and wrinkled, and the top of the hill  seems ever so far away to
the weak  tottering figure struggling so brave­ly  und'er the haevy
load. At the top  of the hill he stops for some rest but  not for long, for
far away beyond an­other  range of hills lies his homeland  and with
thoughts of the -tomorrow he  hurries on.  The next hill marks the entrance
t*.  a summerland—a land of trees and  flowers and birds—a
wonderful land  for the man but not for the diamonds,  for as soon as the
warm breath of the  summer fairy touches them, they  fade away as summer
fades into win­ter,  leaving only the limp bag on the  bent shoulders
of the weary man.  It is night. The bowed heads of the  dark pines as they
chant misereres  echo against the purple hills and back  again into the
heart of the silent trav­eler  as he sits alone.  Here the story
ends—only because  a life ends.  The outstretched arms of the
far­away  city will never be filled, for deep  in the heart of the
forest the trees  keep silent watch, murmuring to them­selves  the
story of a life spent in the  harvest of snow diamonds.  THE POWERS OF
EDUCATION  The Old Way.  Say, loidy, I am hungry, and m gt;.  pants is full
o' slits;  Me shoit is black and doity, and me  benny's on de fritz.  I
chopped a side-door Pullman in dat  boig called San Jose,  And hit de trail
for Seattle, 'cause I'm  alius on me way.  I got de roamin' fever, an' I
got it  good and strong.  So I'll grab de East bound rattler, and  I'll
ramble right along.  But before I hit de grit mum, on dat  string of empty
"flats,"  Could yer spare some extry eats, mum  for de linin' uv me slats. 
The New Way.  Dear madam, this intrusion is uncalled  for, I'll admit; 
It's a social obligation, as from place  to place I flit,  I stop to hold
these tete-a-tetes. (I hope  you'll excuse  The fringe upon my trousers and
my  old, discrepit shoes.)  My exterior is frowsy, but it hides an  honest
heart—  A heart that yearns to praise you for  your culinary art. 
So, if you've any edibles to give me  er I go,  Remember Epictetus Brown,
the Edu­cated  Bo!  Some of the degrees from the Hobo  College will
probably be: D.D., "Dus­ty  and Dilapedated"; L.L.D., "Deni­zens 
of the Long Lane"; B.A., "Amb­ling  Bo"; M.D., "Devourer of
Mulli­gans."  TO LEAVE FOR  On or about the first of August 1st 
Division No. 3 of the Naval Militia  located at Bellingham will embark to 
the training station on the University  campus at Seatle for a period of
three  to six months training, after this train­ing  the men will be
assigned to var­ious  ships of the United States navy.  At this
station will be 800 young men  from the larger cities of Washington  and
Oregon. Among these eight hun­dred  men will be many Normal men  and
ex-Normal men. Undoubtedly  others will enlist before this goes to  press
but the following were those  that were able to pass the rigid
exami­nation  given by the naval examiner,  and will wear one of Uncle
Sam's sail­or  uniforms next month: Leonard An-stett  '17, Paul Mescke

Altman '17,,  Fred Gemmel '18, George Smith ex-17^.  SOMEWHERE SOMEWHERE 
It is raining on the river and the sky-is  low and grey; "  It is raining
in the timber, it's a dis­mal  sort of day.  But a fellow shouldn't
holler, though  the day is dark and drear;  For it's always raining
somewhere—  and it happens to be here. ;  Somewhere else the sun
• is shining,  somewhere else the world is glad;  Somewhere else
they're having weath­er  of the sort we wish we had.  Sometimes, maybe
right tomorrow,  sun will shine and skies will clear;  For it's always
shining somewhere—  it may happen to be here!  —Douglas

8  DEMOCRACY IN  EDUCATION  Education has not been democratic.  Originally
education was for the few  the aristocratic class. The courses of  study
were planned by the aristocratic  class. Children were not prepared foi 
life but for the next grade and finally  for a degree. However, of late
years  actual control of education in the Unit­ed  States has been
approaching that  of democracy, for the people have been  demanding
education for the masses,  rathr than for the few. The courses  have been
broadened and increased.  We have so far broken away from the  old school
that now in order to com­plete  all the courses offered at
Har­vard  one would have to attend for 400  years.  Administration is
fast becoming  democratic. An ideal superintendent  no longer is the
autocrat. The schools  where the teachers have almost no  liberty of choice
but must follow only  the superintendent's plans are fast  decreasing. More
and more superin­tendents  are realizing that far better  results are
obtained if the teachers  are asked to make suggestions as to  general
plans and in the end be al­lowed  to use their own initiative in 
carrying out the chosen plans. In  many schoolrooms the same plan is 
carried out betwen teacher and pupils.  Incidental and Formal Education. 
If you do something to any living  thing, whether human being, plant, or 
animal, there is a reaction. Therefore  school education is only a small
part  of a child's education for each chila  is being educated every hour
he is  awake. Something is continually hap­pening  and there is always
some reac­tion.  How untrue then is that state­ment  that a child
in the first grade  doesn't know anything.  Formal education is special
instruc­tion  given for future use. Incidental  education is going on
at the same time  as formal education and it trains one  rto meet the
situations of life as they  : appear. Most of a child's education  vbefore
entering school is incidental.  iChildren instinctively walk when the  need
for it arises. An artificial course  in walking is a poor substitute for 
nature's course. Children experiment  with both walking and talking and
in­cidentally  learn much.  Teaching methods are ever chang­ing. 
At present much that is learned  in manual training is incidental. A  child
makes something he wants to  and while so doing incidentally learns  how to
use many tools. So in all edu­cation  there is much incidental learn 
ing. Might it not be possible to learn  even many more things incidentally?
 A certain class of young men was  given the following test: One-half the  
lt;;lass was given the numbers from sev­enteen  to fifty-three to
multiply by  seven. They practiced multiplying ten  THE WEEKLY MESSENGER, 
minutes a day for ten days. They re­ferred  to the key at any time.
The  other group was given the key for the  same numbers. They studied the
key  ten minutes a day for five days and  then practiced multiplying
without the  key for the next five days. After an  interval of ten days it
was found the  first group which had incidentally  learned the products
could write forty-six  correct products in two minutes  while the second
group could only  write forty products. The same exper­iment  when
tried in the fifth grade  with the lower tables showed an even  greater
difference in favor of the  incidental education.  Economic Education. 
Thrift is one division of efficiency.  Children can incidentally learn the 
use and value of money very early.  They can easily learn how money is 
procured and that it is a means by  which we get what we want. Threvj 
fourths or nine-tenths of our criminal-ites  are due to the failure to
realize,  that we must pay for what we get.  Money represents that a proper
 amount of effort has been put forth  and also represents the satisfactoin
to  be obtained.  While the pioneer had to plan in the  spring for his
Thanksgiving turkey  and pumpkin pie the modern man buys  both at the
market the night before  Thanksgiving. Money therefore makes  forethought
less necessary.  If a child is given all the money he  wants he does not.
learn its value. If  he has to ask every time he spends a  cent he does not
learn how to spend  money. The child who owns a pig,  cares for it and
feeds it and then has  to turn the money over to his father  gets a false
idea of honesty. The boy  who owns a pis and gets all the profits  after
his father has cared for the pig  gets a false idea of life. A child should
 have a limited amount of money and  learn by experience how to best ust 
it. With respect to the boy and pig  problem the boy should have complete 
charge of the pig and get the com­plete  profits. Then he should learn
 by experience how to best use the  money.  For some years the demand has 
been made for a more practical meth  od of teaching arithmetic.
Consequent­ly  problems in fencing, house furnish­ing,  roofing,
etc., have been intro­duced  and modernized. Yet a better  system is
possible. Instead of finding  the cost of roofing a house with a
cer­tain  material, permit the child to dis­cover  the best kind
of roofing, the  most economical and then the work is  practical.  Moral
Education.  A child has many moral situations  before he goes to school.
The most  essential portion of moral training  should be
incidental—the reaction  from some moral situation. Many
par­ents  and teachers make the situation  so difficult that the
result is bad. One  should handle the situations so that  the child will
choose the right mode of  action.  Most of the mistakes of life are an 
attempt to escape paying the neces­sary  price whether dealing with
money  SATURDAY, JULY 28, 1917.  or morals. The best moral training  is to
learn to pay the price in every  situation. The parent who ever shields 
the child from punishment or pain  which is the inevitable result of the 
child's own wrong doing is depriving  that child of the moral training
right­fully  his.  Let the child learn what kind of  actions bring
good results and what  kind brings the opposite results. Nat­ural 
punishments and rewards are far  more advantageous than artificial  ones.
However, President Hyde says  that artificial punishment is the
kind­est  thing you can do if by giving it you  emphasize a present
experience and  ward off a natural punishment which  would have been too
severe. Yet if this  method is used at all times the truth  will be
obscured and the child has had  no opportunity to face the truth, the  good
and the evil and the results of  both. Only by knowing the truth and  the
results of the right or wron^  course can a child be strengthened  morally.

THE WEEKLY MESSENGER, SATURDAY, JULY 28, 1917. 9  CONFERENCE NOTES  OF
DEANS OF  Notes from the conference of Dean   of Women, held in Portland,
Ore., July  15.  After listening to lengthy ana  learned discussions upon
Preparea  ness and Conservation, the Deans of  Women agreed to stress the
importance  of the following topics among the  women of their several
schools: •  1. Physical fitness.  2. Mental poise and adaptability. 
3. Personal and public economy.  4. Intelligent consideration of
pub­lic  interests, labor laws, child welfare,  etc.  5. Actual war
service.  6. Preservation of American ideals.  1. Every woman should build
up a  better body. Women have no endur­ance,  not because they are
women,  but because they are not physically  fit. Dr. Ravenhill, formerly
lecturer  in the University of London, deplores  the condition of over-work
in Ameri­can  universities, and the minor ail­ments  among
students. She declares  that in addition to all her college  work, the
American girl insists upon  more social life than her sister who  "just
stays at home." The women or  the University of Washington have  pledged
themselves to retire at 10:30  next year and to take breakfast
regu­larly.  Some 'me hundred and fifty-nine  of these same students
took the war-emergency  course but many were re­jected  because of bad
feet, therefore,  French heels will be tabooed on the  campus next year. 
2. Women should learn to ward off  Tiysteria. Blues and all cases of 
"nerves" are abnormal. In this great  crisis, we are under moral
obligations  to be cheerful. If our brothers must  go to the front, they
will have enough  to endure without our adding to their  heart ache by
undue demonstration.  3. We heartily indorse the gospel  of the clean plate
and recommend the  meatless and wheatless days, however,  we protest
against the economy of es­sential  foods. Rather would we
elim­inate  silk stockings for everyday wear.  The difference in cost
between the  price of silk hose and good lisle is sev­enty-  five
cents and that would buy a  pair of good woolen sox for a soldier.  We
recommend that shoes be repaired  and clothes be mended and that all 
discarded clothing, if at all usable, be  put at the disposal of some
committee  on relief.  5. Let us learn to temper enthus­iasm  with
judgment. Imagine a slen­der  slip of a girl stopping a burly  farmer
at his plow and saying:  "Please, sir. I have come to relieve  you, in
order that you may go to the  front." Let us learn to do the tasks  at hand
to the very best of our ability.  And let us learn to give. Our neigh  bors

forefathers lived and died.  Chief of these is the single standard.  If

10 THE WEEKLY MESSENGER, SATURDAY, JULY 28,1917.  BOY'S AND GIRL'S  CLUB
MOVEMENT  The value of the club movement  may be considered from two points
 of view. First, economically—  whether it will pay in dollars and 
cents and second, educationally and as  an educative process.  One of the
incentives held out to  the boy in the organization of a  "club" is that it
is a money making  enterprise. The results achieved so  far have fully met
the promises held  out.  In any kind of club, pig, corn, poul­try  or
canning, the economic aims are  to conserve waste, make the good
bet­ter,  increase production and realize  profits where little or
none existed be-  - gt;re. ' In such enterprises as canning  uit or raising
a pig the child's profit   gt;mpared to his investment is large.  is plant
costs litle, his capital is  small, his labor is his own, and his  selling
price is nearly fc'is profit. On  this basis of capital and labor no $10,- 
000 or $1,000,000 conporation can com­pete  with him. The value of
teaching  the child the value of money by earn­ing  it has its
economic phase. Habits  of saving and thrift are being incul­cated 
that will in after life be decid­ing  factors in his financial success
or  failure.  Educationally, the nature of the  movement and the methods of
carry­ing  it out conform to sound psycho­logical  principles. It
is directly con­nected  with the experiences of the  aild and with his
home activities. It  . a means of self-activity, an oppor-mity  for
self-expression and a de-slopment  by doing.  The movement signifies
"care,"—a  word that lies at the foundation of oui  civilization. The
effect upon the feel­ings  and emotions of having some­thing  to
care for in early life is a prob­lem  of deep significance. When we 
are reminded that less than one per  cent of over eight hundred prisoners 
at Walla Walla (report of warden)  had never during their childhood  owned
and cared for a pet or animal  of any kind, its significance becomes 
apparent.  The idea of ownership is a large  factor in developing a boy's
potential  possibilities. He may be thought not  to have much
responsibility until pos­session  of something worthk brings it  out,
and that responsibility finds ex­pression  in bringing out a different
 kind of bearink in the boy in his look,  his step, his appearance. The
boy's  attitude towards work and farm life  may be changed. His view-point 
towards chores, such as feeding th*  pigs, may be different if he owned 
them than if he fed them because he  was told to do so. A direct interest 
in the farm problems will tend to keep  him on the farm. He will not be so 
anxious to go to the city to earn mon-  Gointf* U.p lt;  i o w n?  \tf* U.^
 Our Annual Picnic  ey if he can be shown how to make  money at home.  It
will teach co-operation and in a  way that is very real to him. The  word
"club" has in it the idea of co­operation  He must co-operate with 
some one if he succeeds, and this he  learns early.  It will also be a
means of closer co­operation  between the school and the  home. They
will be brought into  closer touch with each other. The ac­tivities 
of the school room will be  transferred to the activities of the  field or
kitchen where the home will  share with the school in its function  as a
directive agency of childhood. If  the movement will bring these two 
forces together it will be worth all  the effort put into it.  Dr. Claxton,
in an address at the  Normal in 1915, stated that the solu­tion  of
the rural school problem lay,  not in consolidation, not in
centrali­zation,  but in the longer tenure of po­sition  of the
rural teacher, in the  teacher-cottage plan, in the twelve  months pay
basis, in making the rural  teacher's life directors and real factors  in
community development.  The movement also opens up a field  of operation to
supplement book-knowledge.  The boy will use his  knowledge gained in
agriculture by  going out and making practical use of  it, instead of
merely reading his les­son  and passing his examination. He  will
perhaps remodel the chicken coop  or build a new one according to club 
ideals, instead of stopping at making  match scratchers and beautiful
chairs.  The girls in their cooking, canning or  sewing clubs will carry
home the  teaching learned in the school rooru  for practical application. 
In conclusion, it keeps busy idu  hands and brains at a time when they 
most need to be kept busy, and in an  environment that in its socializing
in­fluence  can hardly be estimated. We  have too long been educating
child­ren  in an environment of inactivity  and then expecting them to
go out an lt;?  function in a life of activity. Who can  say that a half
dozen girls canning  fruit or the boys in their club enter-prizes  are not
learning to function in  life or are not acquiring values of  themselves
and of others? If "social  efficiency is to be an ai mof educa  tion the
schools must be connected up  with the everyday experiences of the  child
which will in turn lead to his  life activities. —F. C. B.  "Oh
Smith! We-ah-do you think our  skirts will be alright? We left thei,  in
the train." Several pairs of eyes  belonging to bloomer-garbed fair sex 
looked pleadingly up into the face of  the president of the Students'
Asso­ciation.  "Why, I guess—that is the train  stays here all
day," he replied doubt­fully.  Meanwhile many skirt-clad damsels 
besiege the Glacier ticket office and  shortly blossom forth in bloomers 
ready for flight.  Suddenly, a cry: "Oh. I left my skirt  in the ticket
office. What if it should  be closed when we come back?  Supplementary
cries of "So did I,  So did I," "and I" were heard and a  second siege on
the ticket office took  place.  "Oh! I'll be here tonight, don't fret," 
came from the ticket agent.  In various directions they disap­peared 
. Their voices gradually died  away in the distance.  Nor were they seen or
heard in Gla.  cier until approximately 7:00 p. m.,  when from every
direction girls  swarm like rats, hurrying and scurry­ing  in spite of
weariness for fear of  being left.  Such a disheveled sight! Some had  barn
doors torn in their stockings;  pinned together with safety pins;  soles
tied to uppers with string; once  snowy middies—Well! really for the 
laundry, and so one might enumerate  indefinitely. No wonder they wanted 
their skirts at once.  But hark! What is the matter?  "The ticket office is
closed," comes  one agonized cry after another, "What  shall we do?"  The
ticket agent meanwhile calmly  took in the situation. The ladies in 
question settled down in resigned de­spair.  Then he unlocked the
office  and hurriedly found for himself a safe  corner, aware that in a few
seconds  skirts would begin to fly about.  Bill Nobles played the cavalier
on  the home stretch by rescuing a skirt  from the wayside brambles, thus
en­dearing  himself in the heart of the  owner indefinitely.  Yet bear
with me! On Monday fol­lowing  our venerable Carlton, slowly  and
painfully gained his feet, with  this startling announcement, "The tide 
came in Saturday and in its wash I  discovered some lost article. The 
owner may get these on request in  room 218."  Skirts! Ah, me!  —C. 
Table number Ten, at the dormitory  dining hall was vacant on Tuesday
ev­ening  at dinner time. Those who have  been holding regular
meetings around  this board during this summer session  had gathered at
Rockey Point for a  beach party.  The painstaking efforts of the
kitch­en  chemisct soon resulted in a roaring  fire and shortly after
in a series of  delectable compounds, the products oi gt;  his skill in his
improvised laboratory.  After dinner speaking consisted of a  series of
nonsensical limericks by the  official Poet Laureate of Table Ten.  An
hour's ride on the rolling waters  of the bay in a pleasant launch
fitting­ly  rounded out the enjoyable evening.

12 THE WEEKLY MESSENGER, SATURDAY, JULY 28, 1917.  "DAYS, WEEKS  ff  It was
a beautiful Day in early auv  umn. The sun was shining Wright out  bright
from the clouds.  As he drove up to Her house his  heart beat high with
hope and expec­tancy.  He was a Hale, hearty Young  Mann, full of
vigor and Ginger. His  Dodge was new. He had on a new  Brown suit and a new
Gray hat. In  Short, He was a well dressed, well  Groom-ed Young Mann.  She
was in the Garden and was ex­pecting  Him, for She knew He was a t 
her Beck and call, yet she did not let  her faithful Knight know
this—and as  her maid announced him, She pretend­ed  to Reid her
volume of Pope—even  reading a Passage over and over—She  spoke
for a. moment with the Gard­ener,—  thus keeping Him waiting to 
make the Bond between them strong­er.  However, in due time She went
in to  greet him. She was a Short, Petite  woman, barely out of her 'teens,
with  the Bloom of health upon Her cheeks.  Her eyes were Ballou, her hair
''Red."  She had the De Vine beauty of her  English mother, and was as
Witte as  her father who was a Squire from  Ireland. Being an only child
She  filled a Longfelt want in that house­hold.  After greetings were
exchanged He  asked her if She cared to try his new  Dodge. She gave her
consent, hastily  packed a lunch, donned her hat and  fastened her Vail
with a Sterling Pinn.  They took their Coates Witham, and  started.  The
Carr was in perfect order, but  Owen to the fact that He was a new  Driver,
their course was not always  straight.  They left the Tawne far behind and 
soon were traveling over delightful  country Rhodes, lined with Platts of 
grass, trees and meadows. They  passed a Stubblefield where a Robin,  a
Finch and a Martin were picking up  the fallen wheat which the Workmen  had
failed to Garner, and a stray Lamb  was trying to Jump over the Gates  into
the field beyond, while a Shep-hard  was trying to Marshall it up the 
Banks opposite.  As they neared the Lake a Partridge  flew out from behind
a Bush on the  Shore and was closely followed by a  Fowler who was out on a
Hunt, with  a Gunn.  They passed a farm where the men  were all ready to
Plough the fields  for their winter's wheat crop, ant-  Drew up on the
Rockey, Pebly edge of  the Lake, where they were to have  lunch. He got
Wood and built a fire,  and She soon had the chicken on to  Fry over a hot
Cole.  This tasted very good in the Graham  sandwiches. They had
Rice—Custard  and Green Gage plums for dessert,  and Welch graps
juice to drink. They  ate and ate, even to the last Almond,  till there was
not a Crum left. They  could not have been Fuller.  About an hour after
they had Eaton  He proposed a walk through the Glen,  around at the end of
the Lake. It was  a beautiful winding path—overshad­owed  by
Burch and Elder, and bor­dered  with wild flowers of many  Hughes. 
Suddenly, as they were oposite an  old Cave, She stopped Short, screamed 
and threw herself into his arms. He  comforted her and smiling said, "It 
was neither a Fox nor a Wolfe; it was  only a White Herre dog, with Spotts 
on it. There must be a farmhouse  near."  Then as She started to draw away,
 He held her close and said, "My Little  Dove, I love you with all my
Soule—  I am a Potter of some renown, and my  Ames are high, but I
will devote my  life in trying to make you happy."  She was silent. It all
happened so  quickly and unexpectedly that she was  at a loss what to say. 
Her silence only impassioned him  to try once Moore to Pierce her heart  of
Stone.  "There is no price I am not willing  to pay." Then He proceeded to
Paint­er  a picture of the Holmes she could  have, the Jewells she
could buy, the  favors He could Grant her, and  through it all He used such
en-Deering  terms that she finally capitulated. It  was Dunn in such a
convincing way  that She consented and their Troth  being plighted, He
kissed her on the  Lipp as She murmured "I Everham  yours."  He wanted her
to name to-Morrow  as the Deigh but she demurred, though  She was Moore
than willing to talk it  over. They spent some time in dis­cussing 
various Parsons, and She ex­claimed,  "Oh, Millican act as Bestman. 
He's such a Merriman!"  On the way back to the Carr a  Storme came up and
it began to rain  and Hale—so she took off her hat and  tried to
Draper handkerchier over it  to keep it from becoming soaked. But  She
said, "I Cantwell cover it as my  hat is large and my handkerchief  small."
So He Tooker hat and put "it  under his coat."  They hastily climbed in and
started  towards home. As they drove West  along the Strand, the wind
Ballou and  piled the Sandhei. After a few Miles,  at the foot of a Little
Hill, the Carr  stopped, and He got out to see what  was the matter. There
was a Leek in  the carburettor and He couldn't get  the gas to Floe.  He
was a willing Workman, but the  rain became a regular Flood down the  back
of his neck. He began to Nash  his teeth and Hunt for a place of  shelter.
He pushed the Dodge over  by the side of the road and under some  Oakes and
looked around for help.  Just then a Ford was seen to Pick  its way through
the puddles. The  Driver was an old friend of hers, a  Baker from a nearby
Towne. She  Hail-ed him with "What a Boone!  Here is Mr. Cook, the Baker
from the  next Berg—maybe he can help us."  Mr. Cook was willing but
when he  saw that so litle a thing was wrong he  thought he would teach the
new Driv­er  a Kean lesson, so he pretended not  to know what was the
matter and  after Hammering around a bit said:  "I can't seem to locate
your trouble,  but I am willing to take you into  Towne."  He, our hero,
was torn between love  of his new Carr and love of Her—but  She
Jump-ed into Mr. Cook's Ford and  blithely rode home with him.  He sat in a
dosconsolate heap, star­ing  at his Dodge. Finally He said to  it,
"Well, Godlove you! You stick any-day!"  Just then He heard a donkey Bray 
and upon looking around discovered a  barn nearby. He Plough-ed across the 
Lee and up to the barn door—wherein  He saw a Mann trying to Currie a
coiv  pie of Gant Burrows.  The Mann looked up and said,  "Wall, I Swan!
What on Airth be ye  doin' here!"  He explained and asked the Mann  how
much he would charge to Wade  out into the Storme with his Burrows  and
haul his Dodge to Towne.  The Mann replied, "I Settle many a  problem like
that. What do ye Offer-man?"  He said, "ix.re you a Mason, if so I  ought
to get it Dunn cheaper, because  I am too."  But the Mann replied, "I
Arnott!"  Then, said He, "Well, Come, get me  out of here. I am not a good
Walkei:,  besides by Corns are Eakin, and I will  give you the last Bean I
have."  So with many Agee and haw they  arrived safely.  But as He Mount-ed
the stairs to his  Chambers, his faith in womanhood  was shattered. She had
proven un­true—  had basely deserted him in his  hour of need.
With Marks of sorrow  upon his brow, He soliloquized to him­self,  "I
am in despair! Shall I take  strychnine Pilz? No. Oh, If I had only  had a
Winchester, I'd have Shotter.  But if I had I'd be filled with re-Morse 
and Parish too. No! No! Maybe I can  think of a Righter way. Let the dead 
past Berry its dead, I will not Howell!  I Wilcut her from my memory! There
 Willoughby other girls and other Som-ers.  I am Young! Let Her marry the 
Baker. He probably will teach her the  value of Calouri and loaf and She
will  Herrett till She will be tired of it and  wish She had not deserted

Squalicum  beach. Was the water fine? As*  those who went in! The others
don't  know what they missed.  It was just a little warm when the  fM st to
arrive came to the selected  spot, but they were cooled off by cha,  ries,
an appetizer for supper supposed­ly  but judging by the quantity of
sup­per  they ate, they didn't need an appe­tizer.  And this
time, the right quan­tity  of everything was on hand, plenty  of
weinies, sandwiches, beans, cake,  fruit, salad, and marshmallows. 
Everyone hated to think that was  tl-.e last picnic, but we shall all get
to­gether  and have another one—next  summer, perhaps.  The
night of July 19th the Y. W. C.  A. Cabinet girls attended a house  party
as guests of Myrl Davis, Vice-  President of the Y. W. C. A. If you  -want
to get the sentiment of the meet­ing  ask Mina Merrick. She went out 
in the boat after it. If you want to  travel light and still have plenty,
see  Myrl Davis. She fixed it up with the  conductor. If you wish first
lessons in  frying chops ask Miss Sperry, she has  a "Greasian Degree." As
to things  that walk and talk at night Miss Morse  is an authority. If you
never have  played Peter and Paul and wish u»  know the rules ask
Helen Herbert and  Lucile McGhee. Lessons in rowing  can be secured from
Ella Peterson and  Gladys Miller. They each had an oar  in. If you would
like an official guide  for any of your jaunts or trips Eda  William's
services can be secured at  reasonable rates. A salad and a cup  of coffee
are reasonable terms. Sally  Lopp, being the last one in at night,  having
missed the car, was the first  out of bed next morning, this proving  the
"last shall be first and the first  shall be last." Making coffee or
start­ing  electric engines Cassie Cales has a  master's degree.
Further information  can be had upon application to an gt;  who were
present.  The suspense is over! For. dayt  the Yakima County Students had 
watched the bulletin board for some  clue to a mysterious picnic for
Tues­day  night. By the clever planning of  the Misses Thompson and
Behnke, it  continued to be a mystery from the  time the Club left the
Normal steps  until they reached home. They were  led unknowingly to their
destination  which proved to be Cornwall Park,  where they found the table
laden with  much to eat. Instead of toasts, unique  fortunes found under
each plate were  read.  After exploring the Park and play­ing  games,
the Club was taken by  auto stage home.  Since most of the members expect 
to teach in Yakima County, it was de­cided  to hold a reunion at
institute  this fall.  The Glacier trip was an enjoyable  one for the
Skagit County club, at  least those of its members that went  together. The
destination was Skyline  Ridge, and at any time during the aft­ernoon 
you could find a Skagitite toil­ing  upward. Some speed was
exhib­ited  along the trail the average being  one mile per hour!
About six mem­bers  reached the summit, said to be  6,400 feet
elevation.  The last club function will be a  picnic supper on the top of
Chuckanut  and watching the sunset from there.  Group Breakfast on

two-thirds  of the way to the top of Chucka­nut  to find a place to

never before tasted.  Who were the cooks? You'd have to  be one of the
party to know that. Sev­eral  became quite efficient "flopping

descend  in time for dinner at the hall.  So a couple of additional hours

was a glad awakening. And  while she was in the process of coming  to her
senses, Ted was going home  with the proud consciousness of having  done a
good deed.  While he slept, the Fate that  watches over all good
anti-suffragists  came to him and said, "Rejoice, oh  favored among men,
for I bring to you  a great gift. From this moment, you  are a Superior
Being. You shall be  honored and protected by all. At your  beck shall come
(if he feels like it) K  benighted creature who shall pay  your street car
fares and buy your  luncheon. He shall attend with grace  to your slightest
wish for the mere  pleasure of being amused by you.  "He shall listen
patiently to your  questions and explain, out of his  knowledge, those
things which puzzle  you, for as a Superior Being, you have  henceforth no
use for your own mind.  "This is not all, for from this mo­ment  you
are freed from all the obli­gations  of citizenship! You shall pay 
your taxes, happy in the assurance  that you had no voice in their levying.
 You shall listen to talk of unjust laws  about to be passed, of dishonest

doing nothing  "Be glad, Beloved of Fortune—"  Ted was waking up!  L.

Norton, one  of its class advisors, the lavaliere, in  appreciation of her
good work for the  class. When it came to class parties,  picnics and other
activities of the  class, she was known as a "real scout."  The lavaliere
was purchased and de­signed  in Seattle by Miss La Vonda  Mathiews,
through the suggestion and  efforts of Miss Bisazza. It was an  original
design, the chain and pendant  being artistically and uniquely made  of
silver with a large, green, moss  agate, set in the pendant. It was sent

 AI LEOPOLD HOTEL  (Continued Prom Page One.)  formed an effective
background. Cov­ers  were laid for fifty-five.  A most interesting and
unique pro­gram  was arranged. The extreme  formality of the occasion
was broken  up by the placing of the toasts and  music between courses. At
the very  beginning the guests were put at ease  by melodious strains of
Hawaiian mu­sic.  Mr. Epley, our -wall known and much  admired
instructor, acted as toast-master.  We wish here to express bur  gratitude
antf appreciation of his work  here for this is probably the last time  he

Englishman who was touring  America, was taking a ride in one of  our
famous American stret cars, where  people sit along the side of the car,
and  face the people on the opposite side of  the car. •  At one of
the frequent stops a lady  boarded the car, carrying a especially  homely
baby.  The poor cockney simply could not  keep his eyes from that baby much
 to the annoyance of the mother. He  tried reading the signs, and looking
out  of the window, but it was of no use. He  could not resist looking at
the baby.  Accidentally he dropped his hand­kerchief  to the floor,
and as he stooped  to pick it up the child's mother bent  over, and
viciously whispered'in his  ear the word "Rubber."  The cockney immediately
looked up  with a relieved look on his face, and-said  to the mother:

SPLENDID LECTURE  (Continued From Page One.)  However, faithful service is
fast be­coming  the thing that is looked for.  Service is life's
greatest ideal an   duty is its motto. The man worth while  is the man at
the bottom whose work  is not the showy work but the founda­tion 
work."  In this trying age we want men,,  great men, men destined to
perform  faithfully their duty. We have no time  for the man who falls and
never rises  but for the one who by faithful ser­vice  rises there is
a reward, "I do not  care how many times a man may fall.  But I do care how
many times he rises  and demands success. The farther he  falls the higher
he will bounce if he is  determined to succeed. The man worth  while is the
man who comes up with  a smile and faithfully performs his  duty. He who
never fails only half  succeeds," said Mr. Klemme.  The man under the
shadow is the  man who succeeds, who faithfully per­forms  his duty
and makes the world  better by so doing. He, too, would  have been a hero
had he had the  chance. The world is full of just such  men, men of metal
truth, honor, men  who are the backbone of civilization,  yet have never
cuine out into the lime­light.  The young should je taught that
ser­vice  is the greatest ideal in life rather  than that eacn may
some day be pres­ident.  There is but one chance in a  100,000,000 of
ever being president  while there is a duty for everyone to  perform, and
his success depends on  the faithful discharge of his duty.  T h e most
important part  of g e t t i n g glasses is t h e ex­amination. 
Woll's examina­t  i o n s are t h o r o u g h and up-t  o - d a t e .
