1879. -Education is a better safeg uard-o f liberty than a stand in g army. If we retrench the wages of t h e sc h oo l­ master. we must raise thos e of the re­ cruiting sc rgeant.-Everett.

The Great Question. The Un ited States is at war. Young men are heing placed in the army as fast a they ca n he handled. Otterbein. like a ll other schools, is furnishing her share. These are th e facts a nd n obody ca n deny th em. The question th e n we must consider is what are we going to do if conditions keep o n as th ey have. Already we have found that it is a very diAi cu)t task to find me n to fill the places they h ave fonnedy held. The only so !ution to the issue is that th e girls of th e co ll ege must tep in and mak e up the deficiency. A noticahle fact was discov ere d the other day th roug h one of th e ex­ changes that came to th e oftice. A girl was called upon to edit the paper of one of O hi o's largest sc h ools. Just what one sch oo l has found n eces­ sary to do will have to be done by all the rest sooner or later. As yet O t k rb ein has not found it necessary to go to any extremes but the time is co min g when sh e will have lo fill some vaca n cies. The time to prepare for emergency is right now. Eve ry girl in sc h oo l that has any -abil­ ity in any lin e of work shou ld begin to look into th at pa r tic ul ar thing and be ready to carry on the work when she is called . There is not the least bit of doubt but that the women of any

co ll ege can handle some kinds of work as well as the men, but to put th em at the head without any experience or at least without any ideas of what is to be done would tend to detract from that phase of the college. · Girls, you can do it. It is a ' duty th at yo u owe to the school and in a way to t h e nation . Pick out the th ings that you can best do and get ready for the call. It may come soon and unexpectedly so it behooves every one to be r eady so as to not interfere in the least with the reg ul ar routine.
