Progress For Peru ~VER YTHING
which does not move forward stag\..:J. nates. Still water becomes impure; an unused arm atrophies; even a quiescent, self satisfied civilization hold s its own only for a time and then retrogrades to the low er level from whence it came. So it is with education . The knowledge that would have been sufficient a thousand years ago , or a hundred years ago,-aye, even a generation ago , will not suffice for the present generation. During a portio n o f the Middle Ages Europe became apathetic toward educa t io n and failed to reach forward for new knowledge. Soon th e knowledge that it had taken centuries to accumulate became lost to the great mass of people and generation aft er gen eration groped in mental darkness before the awakening occurred. Likewise a T eachers College that does not have a progressive program, that does not look forward to newer a nd better things in education, that does not give to its students the cream of subject matter and method as determined by the latest investigations,-the T eachers C ollege that does not do these things will fail to measure up to its full responsibility. May we of the Peru Faculty and Student body consecrate our time and talents to the end that Peru may continue t o be known as a T eachers College abreast of the times. W . R. PATE, President.
