VOL. _I. , STATE COLLEGE, PA., NOVEMBER , 1887. No. 5. work_° done here, much better than if couched in descri ptive words. We are sorry that all our departments are not headed by such energetic men as Professor Reber. Some of the departments , in deed , are on the wane owing to the lack of interest shown in them by the professors in charge. What we want is a little more "go" in our faculty. Students will not work when not insp ired by the actions (not the words) of their teachers. When the student realizes that a professor is endeavoring to make his department interesting and profitable to him there will be less nonsense and more work done iti classes and laboratories. • THE lecture to be given under the auspices of _Tii i ~ _FI _EE LANCE , _OD the _i8th instant , should be liberall y patronized by the students and friends of the college. This is the beginning of an experiment which may lead to the establishment of a permanent lecture cou rse, and much will depend on the success of...

conceited "bluffs. " We believe that college journalism could do no nobler work than advocate the abolishment of these debasing customs of our colleges, which so many would-be young men regard as the _• "essentials of college life. " THE elective system of education as recentl y adopted by some of our hi gher colleges is thoroug hl y in keep ing with the spirit of the times. Thoug h there is a long line of antagonists arrayed against it , we veril y believe that with the present _tend ency of the age it will ultimatel y become the universal system. Tl~ is age is pre-eminentl y a practical one. Men who can apply as well as explain theories are in greatest demand , and the nearer our colleges come to the fitting of their students for practical work the more nearl y will they comp ly with the needis of the times. The great majority of young men cannot afford to attend college just for the sake of "gaining a liberal education ,"and indeed many who have been so favored are so often found...

knows something of everything is far less.usefu l to the world now than he who knows everything’ of something’. ’ I)oes it not then behoove our colleges to concern themselves with afforc!ing young men the best facilities possible for pursuing courses of individual choice, (which courses, of course, would be chosen with reference t ’ o the best preparation for some trade or profession ,) rather than insist upon the adoption by all of a universal pre scri ption regardless of the students future work ? The technical ’ courses now introduced in many colleges are doing much to remed y the errors of the old system , inasmuch as they _d irectl y prepare a student for his future work. But they will not be entirel y removed until it has been supplanted by the elective system. The opinions held by some, that students would take undue advantage of the privileges affordec! them by the elective system are grounc!- less. The faculty in y ielding to the student the privilege of selecting his own c...

adds "It mi ght be made a safe deposit where every military article may be kept in good rapair , and an academy mi ght be hare instituted for instruct ion in all the branches of the military art, " Colonel Pickering wrote "If anything like a military academy iii America be practicable at this time , it must be grounded on the permanent mil itary ‘ establishment for our frontier posts and arsenals , and the wants of the States separatel y, of officers to command the defenses on their sea coasts. On this princi ple it mi ght be expedient to establish a military school or academy at \Vest Point.

It is som eti mes slow , but it has its effect on men in the end And whenever a nat ion has fliost comp letel y secured for its citizens this essential requisite of industrial growth , t hat nation has develope ~ l most rap idl y. With us it has done more to produce our phenometi al growth than anything else. We have prospered in our industries so marvelousl y as a nation , not because of our tariff system—it has been in spite of that—but because (z) of our own peace policy—the safety and security given our citizens , (2) our great national resources , and ( ~ ) the natural adaptability of our race for working together on a great scale in _h er - manent harmony. ‘ Nothing is more clearl y illustrated in the history of civilization than this all.import ant first cause of national development—fteace.

that is very frequentl y a positive evil. And that one is the strictl y part isan orga n . In order to subserve party in terests, it misrepresents men and measures , falsifies facts , and sca n da lously traduces private character , and its editor apparentl y becomes so hardened in such shameful practices; t hat he does not seem to know that he is constantl y offending against the most obvious standards of decency and rectitude , that his ‘ paper degrades instead of elevates , and that he prostitutes the hi gh office of journalism by par dering to the "lower range of feelings " in the ’ human heart.
