Lieutenant Kiefer came to talk to the men of the college and brought with him two of the best pieces of male propaganda that the college has seen for many a day.

All who know her will doubtless be interested in the following extracts — • "These strenuous days leave little time for the pleasant things we should like to do, although as I look over my activities I can't see that much is being accomplished.
Man, as the inventor, was pa- tiently at work multiplying man's resources; at times in the interest of peace but to a great extent for the ad- vancement of war — even as in our own times. There are only four hold-overs from very regular play last year, they being Q^ D. The most worthwhile, perhaps, is the 'refresher' course in nutrition, a series of ten lessons offered at the Uni- versity here, for out-of-date home economics teachers who wish to go into defense teaching.

It is your prerogative either to become lost in a pan- demonium of interests or to select and integrate these in- terests for the specific and most important purpose of learning, that you may better serve and, perhaps, lead mankind. Besides the obvious value of con- serving paper, what can be gained by NOT transferring class discussions to a notebook?
Let us school ourselves to face issues without pre- conceived prejudices, but let us be wise enough to discern between the irrelevant and the relevant. He has recently completed requirements for his doctor's degree at Columbia University. There is more to honor than is usually implied in student discussions of it and unless we get down to basic fundamentals we'll argue forever the pros and cons.
We, as teacher, must do these things if the world of the next generation is to have any semblance of sanity. He has also been Superintend- ent of Art in Desplaines, Illinois; Superintendent of Ele- mentary Schools in Plains, Ohio; teacher in Lloyd High School, Wisconsin, Lincoln Junior High School, Wis- consin, Ohio University in Athens, and Chicago Com- mons Settlement Home for Children.

In studying for a test I have found it of infinitely more value to go to the original sources to review.They are somewhat uncon- sciously afraid to attempt a higher degree of scholarship than they displayed in high school.
