the land ,,·hich served as the site fo r the first bui lding, which s tood where .\ Jr. \ ·nnon H all now stands. Times th en were not as prosperous and monn not ..,, pll·nr ii11 l as now, but what people had , they gave freel y Th e village brickyard i11rni-.. h ed hric k. Some donated rock quarried from their farms. Other!> gan: a ft."· ane-. oi land or a horse. These \\·ere traded for usable building materials. Th e 1!10!--t l.III11!THJil don at ion was cotton\\·ood I umber. L et us picture this building when fin all y read y fo r 11!-.t:, ,,·ith it!'> windo,,· opcnl llJ.!' boarded up ,,·ith cottonwood planks, th e roof on ly tempora ry, a nd not (•xanly !'>a t·i:-. factory in stormy \\'Cather, standing on the summi t of a treekss, " ·ind-:-.\\Tflt h ill , the pride and joy of the surrounding community, fro1n which e\·t:nt u all y ,,·a:- t·r, !--prin g t he ren0\n1ed and far-su ng institution- The P eru S tate :\" orlllal. Great \\'as the joy and enthusiasm when th e building was opem:d io r 11:-.e. I .ittltdid it matter if th e Aoor and furn ishings were of cr11de lumber. T he n o rth part of th e building served as the chapel room, and a ro ugh cottonw ood slab , !'> \\·u ng o n leather hinges, opened by the aid of a wooden knob, fu rnished a door . The platform \\·a!'> crudely set up \\'ith an equall y cru de blackboard back of it. Today, \\'ithin a stone's throw of the spot whe re this buil ding stood , sta nds t he beautiful new T.]. :M ajors Training Building. What a contrast , with its marble ft~r­ nishings, most efficient lig hting and heating, a nd other modern conve niences. The first building served not alone fo r school purposes. The upp er part fu rnis hed a home fo r Dr. and -;\Irs. McKenz ie, as well as Rev. and 1\ll rs. Burch , who cared for financial conditions of th e school. There w as al so in the upper part of th e bui ld ing, a juvenile department, under the instruction of 1\I.I rs. McKenz ie. Dr. McKenzie acted as principal and facu lty as well as j a nitor, cu ttin g a nd carry ing the wood necessary for the fires. The course of stud y too, formed a contrast to the one now pursued . Much time was given to spelling, g rammar, and m enta l arith metic, rather than psychology, theory and methods. So the school was carried on, not always without sacrifice and privat io ns, but alwa ys with eager enth usiasm. The management of the school, however , bec ame too m11 ch for a few, and they fo und it necessary to seck aid . Some who were g r eatly interested hoped that it might become a M ethod ist Seminar y. Th e :M ethodist Conferen ce was consulted, but they felt at th at ti me unable to assume greater r espo nsibili t ies, so t his hope was abandoned. Col. T . ]. Majors and Major William D a il y were m e mbers of the legislature, and through their efforts and influence the legisla ture arranged for the support of the school. It was hoped that it m ight become a state unive rsity, but when this was fo und impossible, it was suggested that it be made a normal sch ool. Thus it was that the little school became, in 1867, the Nebraska State Norma l. The legislature appropriated a sum of about three thousand dollars and the bu ildi n g was improved. U nder the direction of Dr. M cKenz ie; in October, 1868, the Philo math ean Society was founded in the little chapel room of the original build ing. T\\·elve o r fi fteen people constituted the membership. Mr. Wilson E. Majo rs was elected th e first president. The program consisted mostl y of debates carried on in tru e fore nsic style.

Now for th e presen tation . From the beginni n g t h l' r c had rested upon Professor Smith, as chairman , the heavy task of org anizat ion , of se tting the various wheels of the enterp rise in motion, of keepi ng endl ess d e t a il s in mind, and of meeting the difficulties that arose. N o\\' he put before th e committee h is pl a n o f executive organization, and a communit y committee was appo in ted to hand le each aspect of the big undertaking,-ll nancc, publicity, transportation, stage sett i n g , pmpc r ties, supe rvision of g rounds and costumes.

Sca rcely a sojou rn er in Peru hut ha:; felt that snene spirit ,,·hich pcn·ades hills and woods and rin·r. And e\Tr~· one ,,·ho has itlt it carries its memory ,,·ith him out into the world. It is fitting. thcrdore, that this embodied spirit sho ul d speak t he prologue, and that he should then stand apart. to watch the pageant of the ages as they bring their gifts to this place ,,·hich he ca lls his own. Th e seas h;n·e retreated , le;n·ing their bounty in ho1l o,,.,_ and on hills. T he spirit of the pl nce looks on , as t he rude icc-giants, sin.,.incr march O\·er the eo o th ei r dd1nnt so1w b ' Janel. \Vhen they retreat th e~· too ha,·e left th e grou nd th e richer fo r their im·asion. Th e cyclo nic "·inds. in a ,,·hirling da nce. scatter th eir lar gess. The place is m ade ready for man and th e nature forces j oin in a g reat hymn of praise to t he Crea to r of all things. ~

~Ian appears, heralded by prophetic words irom the Spi r it of the P lace. The Indians, the fi rst hum an denizens of the region , proclnim their kinshi p ,,·ith nnture; ,,·ith ancient ri tes a ne\\·-born child is sokmnl y presented to the cosmos. and the po"·ers of t·:nth , air and hen,·e n arc inYokcd. to make h is path smooth over t he r ugged hills of I i fe. In prophetic chant the seer of the tribe adjures the child to be strong in the :;truggle ; for he glim pses dimly a darkened future, when the India n sh all no longer be first in the land. Time goes by. The song of the prairie schooner is heard in the dist ance, and over th<' hill ox teams and \Yagons slowly make their way ! T"·o pioneer families, seekin g a home in the ne\\· country, stop to make camp for the nigh t, As th e leader of the company sits by th e fire alone in reve rie, wondering " ·her e the new home will be fo und , Yisions appear t o him. T he queen of the prai rie t ells of the r ewards she bestows llpo n th e stro ng toile r, but "·arns him too of the hardshi ps, the lonel iness, the silence of life in her rea lm. L eaping out of the shado\\·s, th e m ocking spi r it of gold beckons the pioneer to\\·a rd th e mountains, seeking to lure him w ith hints of reckl ess life and quickly ga ined "·ealth. Then comes the riYer, al\\·ays the frie nd of man, a bon d bet\\·een the old life and the ne\\·; and the pioneer make his choice. H e and h is companions settle bv the river. Again th; re is a la pse of years. A long the street of the little ri ver settlement people are passing to the mill , -not onl y vill agers, fo r w h ites and In dians fo r miles arou nd bring their grain to be grou nd here. A knot of men gathers, and soon loud ,·oices and bitter words are heard ,-echoes even in this remote corn er of the risi ng strife bet\\·een


south and north. Whil e they arc ye t talking, the inca rnate ~ truggk i-.. in tlu·i r mid-..t; :1 mule-drawn wagon halts, and its driver, ta ll , gaunt, with burning t·ye,... coll lc.., •rp to find the blacksmith to replace a cast shoe. A11 eager l ittlt- blat·k face p n ·ring rn111 1 tl~t· covered wagon betrays him. It is john Brown; and the pro-slan· ry hlac k-.mit h angril~ refuses to help a "nigger-stealer" on his way. It is a tcn"c mornent. a>o tiH· tt·arn rnr'' t· ... slowly off; but a motherly woman, running after the wagon with Iter batch or collk ic-.. for the hungry boys, ex presses the simple human kindness ,,·hich k nnw,.. "" rl ifien·n n· between black skin or white, whose one impulse is to he lp tht· needy an~· wlwre. It is late afternoon of a summer day a year o r two later. 1\ ~teamho:tl' w hi ,.. tlc ha,.. sent men, \\·omen and children hastening to the la11dillg, for t lw arri,·:tl oi a rin·r boat i~ a g reat even t. Now they troop gayly back, to prepare for a dec k-damT in th t· nTning. The dance music is soon hea rd, and laughte r, and moving ftTt. H11t a lnrrry in g messenger interrupts the gayety. The neighborhood compa11y ha ~ been callcrl to :r r nb. and twenty-five boys march away to the war at t heir country\ ca ll. Before the Spirit of th e Place there passes a chonr s of y01rths anrl mairlt·n,.. , whiterobed, singing of peace and plenty; the war is o,·e r and men 's eyes arc orl tT rnore turned with hope toward the future. As the so ng dies a\\·ay, a littl e group oi :\ Jetlwrl ists . sturdy pioneers of the church, approaches, seeking a site for the schoo l tht·~· llH'an to found. The site is choscn,-a wooded hill-top overlooking the S\\Tt:p of r i n ·r.- anrl ch:dicated to the high enterprise ,,·ith simpl e, hopeful word ~: of pnt~Tr. As the school grows, a new vision is conceived in th e hearts of th e io1rr1<krs.- :r tlream that here young men and women may be trained to a life of scn·it..'t' as teachers. It seems on ly a dream; the task is too g rea t for th e s trugg ling clnrn: h of the ,·ici r1 ity: l:.ut the young state steps fom·ard, and receives the tnrst at the ha11d s of the cln r rch. So the founders' vision is realized. On a summer morning the Spirit of the P lace watches s tudents asscmhle hdorc the school. Here, und er th e trees, they have gath ered to bid c;od-spccd to t\\·o of thci r number, "·ho are ready to commence their life work. The simple cc remonr comes t o and end, the audience is gone, and the Spi rit of the Place beckons the t\\·o J.!raduatcs to come up to him. Then he summons th e wi ld things th ey have kno,,· n so \n· l l , -tht· grasses, the \\'ild Aowers, the birds and butterAies,-to bear them compan r. And, so companioned, the two go forth into th e world, blessed as th ey go by thl' Spirit of t h l' Place. Ann A WI J.J.:\RD Bow E:--.:.

llom.e 1拢ronomirn The department of Home Economics in t he Peru State N onnal School is o n e of the most beneficial and far-reachi ng in its in flue nce. T his department is fulfilling a felt need as is evidenced by the number of Hi gh Schools thruout the state th at a rc installing domestic science and sending to Pe ru for teachers. Fourteen teachers from th is course go out this year to help solve the problems in home-making which confront 93 per cent of the gi rl s of the state. T he Junior class in Home Economics which enroll ed in September, 19 16, \\路as one of the larges t in the history of the school. The department is better equipped than ever before, electric stoves, prcssu re cooke r ,,nd other conveniences having been installed this year. The equipment of the Home Economics department in the T. ]. Majors Training bu ilding is mod e rn in every respect. T he sewing room is most artistically and practically furnished; Singer se\ving machines, cutting tables, electrical equipment and six full length mirrors bein g md uded in the equipment. The dining room and kitchen are most perfect in thei r appointments. Nothing for the comfort and conven ience of the ,,路orke rs h as been left out. The cou rse offered is practical, defini te and esthetic- in its influence, and taught by most capable inst ructors who give the best of their lives to the work.-A STUDENT

lJrnothall When th e Peru students look back o n the football season of 1916 it shou ld con1c ~o them as one of th e most success ful and enj oyable yea rs that the community has C\Tr been pri vi leged to \\'itness. Peru had a footba ll tcarn \\'hich shotdd long bc remembered by all \\·ho sa\\' th em play. The cooperation bet\\·een th e schoo l and the team did mu ch to give t hcm th e env ia bl e record but the team spirit and the good fe llo\\·ship of every man on the squad \\'aS a n equally important factor. Every man played for t he love of t he game and for the honor of the school and each gave the best that ,,·as in him and ga ve it ,,·ithout a g ru dging thought. The team ,,·orked as one man and th ere was a feeling of coi:i pcrative s pirit ,,·hic h IS the one requisite in prompt, definite, t eam,,·ork \\'hich brings r esults . The first da~· the squad assembled on th e ath letic field they displayed t he spi rit \\' hi ch c harac terized the entire season's ,,·ork. True, th e squad \\' aS not large but they ,,·e re a ll there for a purpose, and each man carried his ,,·ork to a defi nite end . 1~herc ,,·ere no "qu itte rs" and th e "rese rves" gave the "varsity" the best t hey had in thc endeavor to build up a strong team. Of cou rse t he first game ,,·as played " ·ith our old friend s th c " Coyotcs" a nd on Sept.

29 we started the series of battles " ·hich placed Peru on the pe rm a nent foo tba ll map. This being our first game the line \\·as some \\· hat ragged, b ut th is, of cou rse might ,•,-ell be ex pected because of the lack of trai11i ng . Th e back field especia ll y s lo\\· and er ratic on the start showed g reat room for improvement. It \\·as so me of the o ld men \\·ho came to th e rescue and turn ed th e tid e of battl e for Perl!. Th e prin cipa l

H aYing left P eru O ct. 5th and after a good nig ht's rest at Gra nd I sland the team \\"as in the Yery best possible condition. In th is game g reat improyement ,,·as shO\nl in the ability of the line to hold on the defe nsi1·e an d to cha rge together on the offensive. The backfield also d isplayed a marked improvement on:r th e prc,·ious game. " R ed" E mmert and "G unboat" Smith made consistent gains thru the G rand I sland line 11·h ile Captain Ha ney de mon~trated his ability to punt and tac kle. 0 f th e I inemen \\"e \\"Oul d say that this \\·as "\ · ic's" greatest defensi 1·e game of th<> yea r and is probably the o ne that 11·on hi m his place on th e all-state ele,·en. For\\"ard passes ,,·ere used frequ entl y and to good ad,·antage by both of th e teams. 1t \\·as in this game that " l\Ia rty" Craig got his first drop kick of the season and a lso sco red th e first touchdo\\"n fo r P eru. T he scoring \\"as in a large measure due to the passing and pun ting of Captain "Tige". It \\"as a clean fast game and Coach J ohnson \\"as ,,·ell pleased hy the sho\\·ing of i he P eru team.

After the splendid showing made by the team away f ro m h o lll c al l t he P l'nl\·ia JIS were anxious to sec the team in action at home. On Octobe r thirteenth , Tarkio journeyed to P eru \\·ith the intention of s po il i n ~ ou r record and stoppin g ou r upward fl ig ht. Tarkio had a somewhat patched up team but they fo ught gamely until the sou nd of t he fi nal 11·histl e 11·as h ea rd. vVith a ll this however they fo und th emselves unable to hold the sp:::edy P eru vians.

"lVlarty" Craig got one drop kick from the thi,·ty-threc yard line a nd w l' ubby" a nd "Gunboat" Smith each scored tou chdowns. Score-Tarkio 0 P eru 17. On O ctober 20th, \\·e received a visit f rom our old fr ien ds a t C rete, and they came: prepared to t rounce the P eru Team in a th o rou gh manner. As has been a time ,,·o rn custom, the game was played on a ,,·ct and sli ppery field. This fact is probab l y t h e only reason \Yhy the score is comparativel y small. Peru carri ed the ball \\'ithin st rikin g distance seve ra l t imes du rin g t h e ga m e , but lost on a fumble or we re unable to advance because of t he slippe ry fie ld.

T his continua l change of t he ball fro m the hands of one team to th e hands of t he other m akes the rc:;ult ,·cry un ce rtain and the game fascinating. The game being one that is played indoo rs brings th e audience in doss touch ,,·ith the pl aye rs and all o\\'s a close scrutin v of th e ,·a rious plays. A I th o \\'e did not \\'in t he champi~nship , this season has in man y respects been o ne o f the most inte resting and successfuL In enthusiasm and attendance this season has had no equal.

RE\". PETER COPE

PROF. I. G. WILSON

\Vc \\'e re fortu nate i11 scheduling a number of college debates immediately and shall debate t\\'o questions. \ Vith :.\Iidland College, a Lutheran Church school of Atchison , Kansas, our debate rs " 路ill uphold the aft'rmatin at Peru, Ap ril 23, of the (jcustion of the abandonment of the :.\Ionroc Doctrine. 路 The debaters against Kansas arc : Bryan Emmert, :.\Iildrcd :\Ionia, and Glen K elley. O n T hu rsday, Apr il 26, this affirmatiYe team debates at Crete against Doane College on the same ques tion. The negative \\'ill be upheld at Peru the same night by Stephen Duerisch, l\I yr tle Harris, and Talbot Hunt. The othe r question for debate \\'ill be the one of Compulsory A r bitration. It will be affi rmed at Peru by Fred Kuh lma n and Ray Robertson and denied by debaters f rom the Colorado State Teachers' College, of Greeley, Colorado. This is a dual debate and the same night the debate is held here, President Hayes '"i ll have at G reeley to uphold the negative, Ve rne C hatelain and R icha rd Meissner. There arc characteristics prevalent in each debate r \\'h ich we have been asked to show in t heir moderation: Bryan Emme r t \\路as one of those \\'ho ,,路on out last yea r in debating. He has a fi ne voice, is apt, and quick at retort. By one ph rase last year he made all the judges and people sit up and take notice. His voice is hard to beat and coupled \\'ith his powers of oratory make a combination that is harcl to beat. \i\Te predict for him a pl ace among the orators of the coun t ry. l\IIildred l\ I onia and l\tly r tlc Harris are both young \\'Omen that must command respect. T hey arc handsome, polished, graceful and have excellent poise. Both have no hesitancy in attacking the enemy and both have every confidence necessary to fig ht well. Both are quick at repartee and both ha\'C excellent presence on th e stage.

Pardon me for being indefi nite in reg ard t o details . sirKe they an: \·ar iab l e a nd c:ril bt changed indefini tely. One ca nn ot say that ma te rial s of certain dim e n s ions, quality. and quantity will make a home. T h e c hi d thin g is that the rc.:sult in g in teriors d o not Took like hotel lobbies. There are ce rt ain things felt rath e r than see n th at make a home. It is questionab le if there ca n be abiding happinc.:ss in a r esiden ce ll'here the d eed is h eld by some ~ew York real estate compan y, or a rno rtgage is held by a Shylock in some humbler city. Fire proof mate ri al is preferred, because it is a g oo d busine;;s proposition. As fo r a ll real economies, the first cost may be more, but an air of pe rrnanen ce is give n t h a t n o frame building can have. T he danger of Indian r aicls is over ; co n sequently , b:::ttcr structures are being erected in this cou ntry. The refore.:, let m y house h e b11il t like London bridge : ''Bui ld it up 11·ith ston e so strong Then 'til' ill Iast fo r ages long." Americans develo ped the grand Ame rican type of arc hitec t11re. the colo nial. At a lm\·er cost more beauriful buildi n gs can be b u ilt in this t ype , than ir1 th e Gothic, Italian, or French Renaissance. Also, because it is artistic, I, as a patriotic Ame rica n , favo r the colonial st yle \l·ith its balance and proporti o n. It is said tha t other styles o1 build ings may come and go, but the colonial is a l11·ays correct. The rooms \\·ill be light and airy, \\·ith hig h ceiling s. A good modem sys tem of


li:rhting and heating will be in:;tall ed . :\s a rule bright colors ,,·jlf be in the norri 1 room:; and darker colors in the so uth rooms. The fu rniture ,,·il l be sturdy and substantial. Sa tisf~·i n g plainnc~s is less tiring than elaborate at tempts at beaun·. Prints of really fine ,,·o rk ,,·ill be preferred to paintings by inferior artists. One. motto on the ,,·all ,,·i ll be good. but trinkets that onl y catch dust ,,·ill be absolutcly ·climinated . A fire place, and shehTs of books arc needed for a home. Th e la,,·n ,,·ill be adjoined \\·itl1 tree bordered paths. and will afford a long unbroken ,-it·,,- toward the hig h,,·a ~· - Tops of other houses will sho\\· against their g roves. Grt·e n fields will surrou nd the house, and ,,·oodlands. and streams that ,,·and er among the g rass~· banks,-streams \\·hose \\·aters. splashing over the smooth round pebbles. a rc n ·cr dear. ·rh e tO\n~ rs, domes, and minarets of my fai ry palace allure me no longe r. Their bright mosaics, g listening fountai ns. g raceful ebony columns, and sih·er lattice \\·ark,· for me, ha,·e lost their charm. For they arc soull ess things. I never want to sit in tl1eir chilly, silent, tenantless halk I nc\-cr want to tread their cold hard stones. I do not \\·ant a mansion, howc,·e r stately, built of lifeless crystal an d heartless bronze. Gi,-c me a house that has association with life, where e,·cry nook and corner is dear. Let the dwel ling be fa r from hurry, st ri fe, and battle's fie rce contention. To the \\·andc rer \\·ithi n the gates of abode let soi-ra\\· and disappointment be forgotten. To the passing st rangn may happiness and childhood's pleasures be o nce more r ecalled , so that c\-c n he \\·ill say,-"Thc man \\·ho lives here cannot be other than wise and ;!ood, for t his is his home."

\Vhy ~ho uld scll~ nc c be clas.~c d as an esse ntial. rath er than simply as a desi rable featu re of educatio n ? Look at li fe. :'\earh· e\·etTthit w0 that differentiates the ao-e and . . 0 L·i,·i lization in "·hich \\·e li,·c. from all others-ba rring ap pl ied C hristianity alone-i~ the product of scientific accomplishment. The steamship, airship, railroad , submarine, : tttomobi lc, gas engine. dynamo. motor. telegraph. telephone, \\·ireless commu nicar;on , phonograph. mm·in)! picture. microscope. telescope. spectroscope. machinery , therapeut ics, architt•ctutT. n1echanics. the man·elous forces of ~team, gas, electricity, explosi,-es. etc.. are hut a ic\\" of tht· miracles science h as perfo rmed , a n d is still performing for mankind . Science touches a n d transforms c\·cr~· phase of life today. The st ruct llrt' and fu n ctions of the bodies w e inh abit. the food we eat, the clothes \Ye \\·ear, the materials and forces we h a ncll e-c\·cr~· acti,·ity of this man·elously acti,·c age. To be ig n o ra11 t oi ~cience is to he o u t of touch ,,·ith li fe and the \\·orld in \\·hich \\'C live. H o,,- do tltt·se facts sq uare with the sc hool cu rricula of our state? Just ho\\· much st·ience do you han· to h a,·e in order to graduate from th e ;1\·eragc high school. normal ,;ch ool and col k gc? The \\·oriel ha,; recenth· paid tribute to the \\·ond crful efficien cy and indu~trial accomplishments of the Cerma n peo ple. and it has rightly attributed tf,i,; to the difiusion of scientific kno\\'lcdgc in that empi re. Their high schools arc :-:al(l to rcqtt ire t\\·o years each of phys ic~, chemist ry. a nd biology. Do \\· e not teach tliese scie nces? Oh yes. in the uni,·e rsitics, and incidentally America has as emin ent ;;cientist,; as C e nnany, or any othe r country. America, ind eed. has led the ,,·orl d in scientific di~covery and im-ention. Sccrctar~· Lane asserts that two-thi rds of the epoch-making disco\-crics and ill\·entions of the last fifty years have been made in America. The tl'Oublc \\·ith our educational svstem is not \\·ith its su perstructure, but \\"ith its fou ndations. lt is interesting to n;te that Ge rmany has made sup risi ngl y fn,· of the g re at scientific discoYerics and im·entions of t he past or present, as compared with America, England or France, but she utilizes the discoveries of others to an astonishing extent. Their monste r cannon , machine gu ns, telescopic sights, explosi,·cs, aerop lanes, submarines. torpedoes, au tomobiles, gas engines, coal tar dyes, etc., were invented clse\\·here-hut "made in Germany. " T he reason for this is the Ge rman business man , financier , banke r. etc., h ave all had something of a scientific tra ining, and so appreciates the importance of discoveries and im·e ntions, that do not appeal at all to the American busin ess man, because he kno\\·s next to nothing about science and scientific principles. America n eeds a "'ide difiusion of scientific kno\d edge thru the output of its sch ools, rather than scientific experts, "·hich she already has. \ V h at claim has C he mistry among the scie nces? Science as a \\·hole is not a py rami d f,f stones, this block labeled biology, that physics, but a living organism, " ·ith each department of science bearing a vita l re lation to the g reat bod y of scientific knO\dedge. Ph ys ics and chemistry arc the fun damenta l sciences, not simply the branc hes, the flo\\'crs, the fruit or leaves of the tree of knO\dedge, but a rc like the fibrovasc ul a r a nd cambium systems of the tree that nourish a nd contribute to the deYelopment of the \\hole organ ism. Ph ysics is the science ,,·hich treats of matter a n d energy, " ·ith the emphasis on energy. C h emist ry is the science "·hich treats of matter a nd energy, \\·ith the empha~ i:< on matter.

\i\lith P rofessor Garey as ad viser the Everett Literary Society has passed another hig hl y successful year. It is true that thou gh the membership is limited, it is composed entirely of lo ya l \\·orkers, \\·ho rejoice to be E ve retts. They have helped to make the many social good times. 'There has been a ge nu ine interest in the prog rams. By their va ried nature everyone has been enabl ed to take part. Since real intellectual ad vancement is obtained thru ac tion , by "getting into the game", more good results from this, than from passively being entertained by persons, " ·ho a re presunied to ha ve g reat talent. E veretts believe that ability approaching genius does not rest in a fe \\' alone but pO\\·er in a musical, clramatic or literary \\·ay is possessed by all. Either this ah\·ays holds true, or the E veretts are an unusuall y \\·ell selected g roup, for it \\'aS fou nd that no one \Yas so poor in tal ent that he could not aid the society in a ve ry cred itable man ner. Great thin gs a re planned for 191 7-18 . But, \\·hile next year is looked fotwa rd to\\·a rd \\·ith confidence, it is certain that all the years have been kindl y disposed to the soci et y named in honor of the statesman, Ed\\·arcl E verrtt.
