PRINCE HENRY'S VISIT
Professor Fossler Discusses its Mean
ingAn Evidence of Good Peel
ing -Betwaen Germany and
In the round rr ovations which have
been given to Prince Henry the past
week, It would have been an injustice
to him not to have devoted a convo
cation period to the discussion of his
visit. That the address, Friday morn
ing, might not only lie interesting
but also filled with that fervor which
is born of deep feeling, no one could
have boon nettor chosen to speak than
.Frofessor Fossler, vho still lias pleas
ant memories' of the "Vatorland."
In order to understand the visit of
Prince Henry it was necessary, said
Professor Fossler, to look back upon
the events of importance which have
occurcd within the last few years.
Three years ago the Americans held
no warm place in the hearts of the
Geimans. To them they appeared
much in the same light as do the En
glish today. The German press and,
through the press the peoplo refused
to believe that the Americans had
engaged in the Spanish war because
of sympathy for tho Cubans but were
on tho whole actuated by mercenary
motives. This belief together with
tho fear that the United States was
fast becoming a bitter rival of Ger
many in tho Industrial world tended
to alienate these two countries.
To such an extent has this feeling
grown that several attempts have
been made to form a European
combination against America. Such
a pL'wi was at one timo contemplated
by Austria, Germany and Hungary
but failed because of the distinctly
German origin which It evinced rath
er than coming from tho leading
countries of Europe. Furthormoro
high tarilTs have been adopted as
retaliatory measures and doubtless
further changes would be made to
stem American advancement when
tho treaties between Austria and
Hungary expired in 1!)03
Another event winch has a close
connection is the fact that for many
years Germany lias been trying to
dispose of her surplus population.
That country is hardly three times
the sr.o of Nebraska and has a popu
lation or 50.000,000. Hence tho various
attempts at colonizing Asia and
Africa, and tho emigration to the
During tho past years Germans
have invested very heavily In South
America especially in Brazil. In the
Vonuolan dispute tho Germans dis
avowed any deslro of political ex
tension of territory. And there was
no desire, as has often been said, to
abrogato the Monroe doctrine.
Much of tho difference existing
was duo to what Professor Fossler
termed tho "yellow or red journal
ism." The Gormau-Vonzuelan dis
pute had furnished ample material to
these papers to aggravate the situa
tion. Therofoio i'i order to give tho
people somothlng to tnlk about and
at tho samo timo to do away with
this growing feeling, tho German
government decided to tako a stop.
Accordingly the kaiser resolved to
have a yacht buiit and launched in
tho United States and to ada still
more to the feeling of amity tho presi
dent's daughter was to be the chief
personago at the ceremonies. As tho
Gorman representative at this func
tion, the kaiser sent Prince Henry
who was not only a man of rank but
one who had won distinction in tho
Tho conferring of the doctorate
degree by Harvard on the distin
guished visitor would dobutless tend
to strengthen tho friendly fooling
between t.liu two nations. (Jn tho
wholo tho visit of tho Drlnco may be
taken as an evidence of the neighbor
ly regard of the Germans for Americans.
RECEPTION TO MOORE
DELIANS DEFEAT UNIONS.
On Friday evening by a score of
13 to 11 the Dehans defeated the
Unions in the first of a series of bas
ketball games to bo played by tho
three societies of the university for
the society championship.
Tho gamo was exciting and close
from beginning to end. Tho first half
resulted in favor of tho Unions by (i
to 0. In the last liair the Dellans se
cured 13 points and succeeded in pre
venting tho Unions from throwing
goals. Foul playing was prevalent
and for a time It seemed that all
scores would bo mado from fouls.
Tho Unions threw f fouls in tho se
cond half and this made the final
score 13 to 11 in tho Del ianlf favor.
Both teams showed a lack of team
work and though fouls were fre
quent, rough playing was not the
cause. The line up was as follows:
Delians Center. Morrill; guards.
Teach, and Hoar; forwards, Gilbert
Unions Center, Thomas; guards,
Spa lord, and Milek, forwards,
NjjJsou, ana Posplsll.
Umpires, Kooliler, and Jliltner.
A gamo will bo played between
tho Delians and the Palladians In
the near future.

Young Men's Christian Association
Honors Former Secretary -
Speaks to Old Friends
Sinco the arrival of John S. Mooro
in the city the members of tho Y.
M. C. A. have been busy availing
thomsolves of tho opportunity of
making use of him in the practical
business of providing more thorough
ly for the budget of expenso.
Last evening tho officers and cab
inet togehtcr with Mr. Moore lunch
ed at the city Y. M. C. A. This was
a small informal affair where an op
portunity was given to canvass the
work and to talk over spring plans.
During the evonlng an informal
reception was held at tho association
rooms from 7:30 to i) during which
time many took advantage of tho
opportunity of greeting and chatting
with last year's secretary. Mr. Moore
is now the general secretary of the
state of Missouri, and Is on his way
back to that state from the Toronto
Yesterday afternoon Mr. Mooro
spoke to a good audionco of you-ig
men in tho old chapel on the "Secret
of tSuccoss." On opening his ro
marks lie congratulated the Y. M.
C. A. on its growth during tho past
year, and for tho station it has at
tained in tho college life. But fur
thermore, continued Mr. Moore,
'the work has Just begun and tho
time is not far distant when a build
ing will be necessary. It Is very plain
that tho extension of tho work cau
hardly be carried on without an ex
tension of room and facilities. When
tho time comes, tho new facilities
jkvlll come, and in the meantime the
work muse bo supported by trie stu
dents, faculty and alumni.
"Tho college man is ambitious,"
declared Mr. Mooro. "and the fact
that he Is a studont attests the fact
that he Is ambitious. It Is difficult
to analyze tho things that come into
a man's life to make tho man. Thero
are entirely too many who think
that because thoy are college men
they are sure to succeed. The gradu
ate is entirely too egotistical and in
too many cases thinks that ho will
go with his parchment into a world
waiting with open arms to welcome
him. We have too long patted the
college man on tho back.
"Success is Jjho result of a well
planned and well constructed life.
To succeed Clio man must have tho
stuff in him. One of the things
that should not bo overlooked, is
that every one should have a strong
healthy body. We should bo strong
mentally, "morally ontl pyBrcslty.
Above all our moral natures nood
"Thero are too many things in the
averago collego man's life which
tend to injure him. It is a duty of
every stuaent to make hlmsolr worthy
to be called a man in every sense."
