He holds his listeners spe llbound by his e loqu e nc e and wit while h e pounds hom e th e truths that go to make up his me sage. His personality is such that when he is heard once, he is never forgotten. This rapid fire word artist, for he is no less than an artist, is becoming a favorit e wherever he appears and leetur e course committees invariably r e­ qu es t his return. By many, he is classed with the most distinguished orators of the present time. He has lectured in nearly every state of the nion, meeting with great success 111 (Continued on page two.)

"A Coll ege \ Vo man' s Chara cte r," was discu sed at Y. W. C. A. last wee k, with A lic e Hall as th e leader. Our character is und ergoing con­ sta nt chang e, for bett er or for wors e, eith er being ele vated o r degrad ed. Let us ask o urs elv es this qu estion , What are we worth today? Not in m o ney; not in brains, but in purpose, hea rt and ch.a ra cter. Let us te ll our selv es th e truth abo ut o ur se lves. Commonp lace as it may seem the doing of one's duty e mb odies th e high es t id ea l of life and character. The influ ence of character wa s brought o ut by th e following: " Dis­ appointm ent, a ilm ent, or eve n weat her d ep resses us ; an d our Ioo k o r t o ne of d epress ion hind ers oth e rs from maintaining a chee rful and thankful sp1nt.

Th er e ar e many requisit es for a good and noble character, the spirit of duty, s incerity, purpose, work, k111dn · ess, manners, happin ess, fri endlin es , cheerfulness, co urt esy, p urity, thoughtfulness, truthfuln ess and vi r­ tue are among th ese. A lth ough edu­ catio n is not n ecessary to obtain all of th ese th e col lege woman's environ­ m ent is s uch that th e gaining of th ese r eq uisit es wo uld be possible to a ll. T hus ho uld the co ll eg e woman not triv e to hav e th e very high es t and no bl est character? "Rep utation is what m en and women think of us; character is what God and th e ange ls kn ow of us."

Address all commu ni cations to The O tterbein Tan and Cardinal , 20 'vV. Uain St., We tcrvill e, Oh io. ub scri pti on Price, $1.50 Per Year, payable in advance. Entered as second class matter ep­ tember 25, 1917, at th e postoffice at \V estervillc, 0., tmder a ct of March 3, 1879.



"I pledg; all egiance to my Flag and to the R ep ubli c for which it sta nd s; one nation, indi vis ibl e, with liberty and justice for all." Physical Education. Acco rdin g to ;,.J ewton, eve r y action accompanied by a cor respo nd ing reaction. This pro\'es to be true in society as well a in the realms of Phy ic . 'vVhenever a ny cha nge from the ex1 tm cu tom is mentioned thert are alway th o e wh oppose it; some justly, it i true, and that is as it hould be. but there are other· who make a business of opposing any new thin g which doe not trike th eir per­ sonal fancy.



Our present system of un h' ersa l a nd co mpul so ry physical trai1u11 g ha s been the s ubje ct o f a g reat deal o f di scus sion and th e victim of much ad,·erse c ritici s m since the beginning of th is year. There are a few persons who think that the Trustees have adopted this system to be arbitary and to place more work upon the in­ di vidual. H o we ver, that is not the ca se. The college is spending more th a n twel\'e hundred dollars a year in thi s department, aside from the mo ney g iven by the athle ti c clubs . This in itself should make the depart­ m ent see m to be a part of the curriculum and cause it to be received favorab ly. J3y far the most complaint comes from the upper classes. There are tho se in these classes who seek to excuse th emselv es on the gro und that t hey hav e too much to do; that they ha\'e no time to go to "gym.'' Some may be conscientious in their objecti o ns and these cases should be given due consideration ; but there are others who are trying to avoid the gymnasium work, because they do no t li ke it, o r because it is real work. There are but few stude nts who get enough helpfu l exercise unless they are taking an active part in athletics o r are in the " gym" classes. The Trustees had thi in mind whe n estab li shing compulsory trainin g, fo r it is tr ue that the harder one works at hi s regul a r co ll ege wo rk the more he needs the exerc ise, eve n though he may not see it that way himself. In­ asmuc h as the rulin g is not intended to work a hardship upon anyone, but rather to he a h_e lp, it behooves every student to look at the proposition fr o m all poss ib le angles before see k­ ing an excuse from this required work. Do You Waste T ime ? How much tim e does th e Otterbein student waste? Thi is not a new qu estion. Far be it from suc h. It has been th e subject of many a n edito rial and the cau e for many a con fere nce in P rexy's office. Yet the fact still rema in s that among the st ud ent th ere is an enormo us amount of tim e wasted; yes, in some cases, worse than wasted. There are several reasons for this dissipation of tim e. 'vVith some it is a matter of not having a sc hed ul e to work by. 'vVhil e a hard and fast sched ul e is not the best plan, yet everyon e ho uld have a tentative o ut ­ li ne of each day's work. Any suc h system t end to eliminate the will­ ful waste of tim e. With others this us e of time to no advantage is due to an exaggerated co ndition of ennui. Altho ugh the number in this class is sma ll sti ll we find a few persons to whom the term " lazy" would apply very we ll. They go to class o nly when th ey feel that if is getting dang ero u to stay away longer ; they cut lab o n any pretext, t hey hun the football fi I'd ; in fact they avoid any thing that avor of work, prcfering rath er to loaf. There is still another clas which include tho e per o ns who indulge, according to the vernacular of the campus, in the ." min or spo rt ." They

spend many an aft ern oon and even­ in g . and in s me ca se s even late r th an that, playing s uch gam es a s ''Auth ­ ors," "Roo k" a nd "So litaire." Th e :)ne great argument against such gam es is that of the tim e lost. Thi s amounts to much more than th e r ecre'. 1tion d eriv ed from playjng th em . V/e ar e now at a tim e wh en we ar e urged to eco nomize on a ccount of th e war. \ Vhil e we ar e se eking to con ­ se rv e th e s upply of fu el and food stuffs, might we not pay a li ttl e clos er he ed to th e us e of o ur tim e, as a war measur e, if for no o th er r ea so n ?
