Chancellor C. A. Fulmer of Wesleyan -
- an university discussed the lighting
of the school room. Ho said light
from the east is best. Lateral light-
ng is best. More well diffused light-
ng is necessary. The color of the
ight is very important ; red inflames
to anger ; yellow is depressing. Color
changes with their effects may even
cure diseases. Green is refreshing
and restful. The walls of a dark room
should be a lighter shade ; those of a
south room , darker. Dingy rooms are
a menace to mental development.

seemed very anxious about the wel

seemed well informed on the far read
of the Associated Press and in a neat
compliment to The News he said :
"Let's see , The News is the only
; > aper out this way which is fortunate
enough to have the full Associated
Press service , is it not ? "
Ex-Secretary Garfield's address was
well received and many comments
were made on his splendid articula
tion. Mr. Garfleld left for Ames , la.
ind is scheduled to address the Ames
Mr. Garfield's Speech.
Mr. Garfield said that there neve
was a time when there was such soli
darity of feeling in the country a
there is today. A movement exist
in all the states , and in the nationa
government as well , making for pro
gross. The progressive movement , h
said , is not a movement to tear dowr
the existing order of things , nor is. i
against representative government
The very men who created this gov
eminent , Mr. Garfleld said , were rel.
els in one sense , insurgents in another
and progressive in another. Englan
stood in the way of progress so th
yoke of British rule was thrown off.
Before the civil war , the speake
said , cotton was king of the industrial
world by virtue of the institution of
slavery. Later It developed as a spec
ial Interest to such an extent that it
controlled not only the industrial life
of the country but also sought to inter-
fer in our political life. And it took
the civil war to change these condi
With the growth of Industry since
the war wo have failed to remember
that the special interests would again
creep into political power. The coun
try has been indifferent to the abuses
which have resulted from giving
largo powers to corporations. It was
necessary that these powers should be
given to the corporations , said the
speaker , but the fault was In being In
different to the abuses of the power.
A few years ago the country waked
up and the progressive movement be
gan. The attack was made on the bad
special interests. No attack has ever
been mado. on legitimate business by
the progressives , the speaker said.
f I The keynote of the progressive move-
01 ment has been and is now that every-
one of the special interests shall be
sdriven | from public and their efforts
o confined to the business world while
! the people are allowed to rule them-
n' : "If a man Is a representative of
some special interest , whether that In-
terest is a railroad corporation , a
| street car company , a labor union , or
11. a gas company , ho cannot bo a good
representative of the people , " said Mr ,
" Garfleld , "for at any crisis whether the
interests of the people conflicted with
r. the interests of the business which he
is representing ho would bo influenced
in favor of the special Interest and
K against the people. "
' Mr. Garfleld discussed the consorva
tion question at some length. Ho ox
a plained the position taken by the pro
gresslves on this question and sale
their efforts have done incalculable
! good by retaining for the use of all o !
the people great wealth which the
special Interests sought to obtain fron
the people. Ho spoke In favor of fed
cral control of the natural resources
saying that the resources belonged t (
all of the people and that federal HII
id porvlsion would work out bettor for al
lie concerned than state supervision. Tines
os ery of states rights , ho said , has beoi
h- raised by the special Interests who an
lie anxious to obtain control of the re
sources , and not by the people of tin
lie In conclusion Mr. Garfield touchei
upon the Initiative and referendum
and llio recall. These , ho Mild , were
objected to by fftnuo because they nro
new ; but they are all progressive.
The' past has shown that the people
ha\o not always beu represented : that
to some extent our representative sys
tem of government has fallen down.
The Initiative , referendum and the re
call will undoubtedly glvo relief for
some of the conditions , and while It
may develop that thcro are flaws In
them also , they are progressive1 and
a step In the right direction.
The progressive movement , ho said.
Is Mich that it must continue to spread
over the country , and in the end It
will override those who oppose It. It
stands against unfair discrimination
and for equality of opportunity , and
Its principles are bound to be victor
