Such is the view which meets the eye of the vi itor as he enter the camp where ncle am is training the young men of Ohio for ervice over-seas.

From h er e a l­ most as far a eye can see extend countless numbers of barracks and upply house , mo t of them already in u e and ome till in the proces of completion. l n this whole picture there is not a sign of disorder but the entire cantonment is laid out in the most methodical way po ible. Interesting as a panorama of the camp may seem to be, it dwindles to a thing of comparatively little im­ portance besides the rea l work of the camp. At the outskirts of this mi li­ tary city is the bayonet chool. Here one may perchance see a real British officer instructing our American offi­ cers in the rudiment of bayonet fight­ ing. This thing that so many of u hrink from is taken up in a matter­ of-fact way that would surely make the Kai er hold hi breath were he to witne s the bu ine s-like attitude of the men. Away off at the other side of the camp i a field of everal acres cut and la hed aero s with really, truly ( Continued on page two.)

Convening in special session the Roard of Trustees formally launched the big campaign, at their meeting here );:ovember 27. Be ides the memhers of the Board several general offi­ cers, conference superintende1~ts, pas­ tors and prom ine n t laymen were pr es­ ent to show their interest in the "big drive" which is to mean so much to Otterbein within the next four years. The Board agreed upon the plans to be used in the drive and decided to outline the campaign on a military ba is. The campaign will be divided into three part . The first period cov­ ering the month of December, Janu­ ary and February \,·ill be used for en­ listment and mobilization. Each con­ fcrcn-cc is to be tho, oughly organiz.:d under a conference c hairman and a conference captain; the super inten­ dent acting as chai r man and a layman to be appointed, to be tl::e conference captain. Then each of the nine confer­ ences will be uh-divided into groups, each group working under the leader­ ship of a group leader and a group manager. The organization is to be carried further to provide for the local churches. T.he second perio•d wi ll b one of picket and scout duty occupying the month of 1Iarch. During thi time, President Clippinger say , there will be ome sharp- hooting for big givers, keeping the mailer ones always in mind. The "Great Drive" i scheduled to take the month of Apri l, the last week of which, all those in the field will "go over the top." As yet no definite date has been fixed for closing the campaign but this and other detai ls are being worked out by President Clippinger and his associates.

The amount received to date is $928, $600 of this ha been forwarded to the T reasurer in , ew York. This is nearly half of the total amount of $2314.50 pledged, and the trea urer expects to have everything settled up soon after the Christmas ho lidays.

Professor John A Bendinger Instructor in Voice. INSTRUCTOR RESIGNS Vocal Teacher Leaves Musical Pro­ fession to Become Chemist After Term of Four Years. Recent announcement has been made that Professor John A. Ben­ dinger, for the past fo· r yer rs in­ structor in vo ice in Otte r bei n Col­ lege, has resigned from this position and will take up work as a chemist for the Ohio Cities Gas Company. This firm, outside of the tandard Oil com­ pany is said to be the largest cor­ poration in the country. Mr. Ben­ dinger' work will consist in making casing-head· gasoline. In addition to routine work he expects to do some experimental inve tigation. Professor Ben dinger, "born and rai eel a Buckeye," received his de­ gree of Bachelor of Science at the niversity of Michigan. His musical education was completed at the Cin­ cinnati College of Music. Following h is course the r e he accepted a posi­ tion a instructor in Voice at Ohio v\' e leyan in which capacity he served for ten years. Since his coming here the profe sor has proven a worthy in­ tructor. Not only has he given his attention to teac hi ng but h e has b een a willing worker in various other pha e of college activtities. The church choir under hi direction has grown to be one of the best in this locality. Director Grabill as yet is not posi­ tive as to who will succeed as chief in­ structor but he state that. he has recommendations ready for faculty and board approval. Pre ident Cl ippinger is busy this week visiting the other . B. confer­ ences. He is in the Miami Confer­ ence the first of this week, and will peak to the Ministerial Association of Dayton this afternoon.

Contest is Postponed. Because of the short time between the Thanksgiving and Christmas vaca­ tions Professor Fritz ha thought it advisable to postpone the Declamation Contest until after Christmas. Thi will give the lower classmen a better chance to do their best in an event which is always a rare litera r y treat. Also a small change in the debate sched u le is to be noted. Instead of but one debate with Hiram College, a doubleheader has been a rranged .

Team Elects C aptain.

After the football game at \ \ ooster, Coach Gorton called a meeting of the team for the purpose o'f electing a captain fo r next season. Th e boys unanimous ly agreed to cast their lots with big "Bill" Evans. Bi ll has been playing footbal l around Otte r b ein for the past five or ten years; has worked under various coaches; and knows every point of the game from the kick-off to the fina l whis t le. 1fore than merely being a good foot-ball player, Bill is a good scout, a leader, and admired by the entire student body. Bill has had suc-cessful experi­ ence in "captaining" a foot-ball ag­ gregation and if Otterbein doc not have a successfu l footba ll eason next •ear it will not be be a11se of lack of ab ili ty or merit on t he part of its captain. \,\ c arc a ll back of Captain Bill and wi h for h im and his 1918 football team the best of success.

He received his early training in cartoon work under the late Frank Beard of the Ram's Horn and is re­ ferred to by ome as Mr. Beard's sue cessor.

force, The present age knows little if anythi ng of the rules of oratory or of the powe r of the human vo ice to influence men to action. Intonation is di srega rd ed or reckoned to be of little account. Hence, conversation ha ceased to be interesting and ex­ pressi,·e. T his state of a ffairs cann ot help b ut be evident to any thoughtful obser­ ver. Pub lic speakers by means of at­ tempt ed literary flights , s trive to bring out such littl e differen ces in thought, as ca n o nly be expressed by carefu l attention to th e qua li ty of t he vo ice. Debators in their desire to be emphatic and convincing beco me ha rs h in their sp eec h and allow th ei r voice to arow har d and unfeelin g. On the o th er hand th ey neglect to pay attention to the real expression of sincer ity and persuasive ness wh ich they try so hard to impress upon th eir hear ers. Even o ur common con­ ve rsatio n has bee n corrupted. We are thoughtless of ou r manner of sayin o­ things to o ur fell ows. Even the mo t common-p lace of thin gs may be said in a pleasing and attractiv e way. Many a fri end may be che ered and he lped or made more despondent sim ply as a resu lt of the way we talk with him. The way you say a thing is of almost as great imp ortance a s the thing itself. Apa rt fr o m the hurl y-bu rl y of our busy Ii ,·es we need to pay attention to these littl e thin gs. It may mean do lla r and ce nt to some of us.
