T. McGINNIS, General Agent
Rinkor, '00, in Philippines.
A letter has been received at Y. M.
C. A. headquarters from T. O. Rinkor,
who graduated from the University In
1900 and subsequently wont to the
Philippines to take up pedagogical
work. Ho Is at present located at
MarlbojoB In the province of Bohd,
Island of Luzon. He has charge of a
normal school there, besides acting In
the capacity of superintendent of
schools In that province. At flret he
had considerable difficulty In Instilling
Into his pupllB correct Ideas of proper
deportment In the school room. When
he first entered the school room to
take charge of IiIb work ho found
about two hundred little tots sitting
on tables and "desks or reclining on the
floor while they studied their cate
chisms. The fact that his students
cherish a higher regard for the ob
servance of frequent holidays, and
evince a greater devotion for their
religious duties than for their studies,
has occasioned him much difficulty.
WhoneVor there Is some special mass
to be celebrated they take It as a mat
ter of course that they should attend,
while their lessons aro allowed to
wait. Somotlmes practically all the
classes are absent on this account.
The pupils display quite a willingness
to learn, and somo of them show a
remarkable aptitude. Among Mr.
Rlnkor's other duties Is the Instruction
of a class, consisting of the reBt of
tho faculty, In the principles of the
English language. ThlB class meets
once a day and Its progress satisfies all
expectations. Tho mall service Is very
poor and a lotter written forty miles
away Is Just as long In transmission as
one sent from New York. In his opin
ion, the surest way of accomplishing
an educational advance In the islands
1b through the native teachers. If
these can bo acquainted with American
ideas and culture, the effects of their
influence will be widespread.
Will Make It a Magazine Alcove.
Those who noticed our Item of last
week, calling attention to a now read
ing table which was recently
placed In tho library, will be inter
ested In learning that It marks the first
step in what Is hoped to be an entire
refurnishing of the magazine alcove,
with tho idea of making this part of
the library more attractive and giving
It more exclusion from the rest of the
reading room. This plan will possi
bly bo accomplished by placing pil
lars and bannister rails across tho
north Bide of the alcove and affecting
a Bcroon with palms and plants. Then
In tho Interior of this will bo a grad
ual substitution of the weathered oak
furnishings in tho chalrB and maga
zine boxes to harmonize with the now
table. This table Is of unusual dimen
sions and miuiglveneBB, Is made of
rich weathered Oak and Is perfect In
the simplicity and genuineness of ltB
design. It follows tho style of the
Arta and Crafts" furniture, from
wIiobo catalogues tho design was sug
gested and selected by Mr. Wyer and
members of tho library staff. It Is
made by the Nebraska Planing mills
of Lincoln and they have given us a
most satisfactory pleco of work for
just about half of tho prices submitted
by eastern furniture houBeB.
A Good Day Coming.
(Saturday Evening Post.)
The day will come when, thanks to
the efforts of men of genius applying
themselves to tho enormously Import
ant work of writing textbooks, Mtre'
fallacy that "learning" Is a task will
give place to the truth that "learning"
is a pastime. Tho prejudice agalnBt
"learning" 1b well founded. So-called
learned men are responsible for It.
So many of them are so dull and they
write so dully that the average per
son says, naturally enough, "Heaven
forbid that I should do anything to
make myself that sort of bore." But
If one will put aside his prejudice
long enough to look into the thing ho
will find that tho sciences hate the
"learned" deadly-dull, dry-as-dust so
ciety In which they are compelled to
spend most of their time, and that
they long for the company of people
with lightness of mind and with a dis
position to laugh on the smallest pos
sible provocation. Science Is not a
task-master, ladeji with Instruments
of torture. It Is a universal playmate,
ladon with toys and games that fas
cinate young and old alike. Some
day wo shall dovelop a race of writers
and teachers who will show us this
lnstend of hiding It from us. Mean
while we Bhall have to put ourselves
to tho trouble of finding It out for
As a splendid example of 16th cen
tury locks, those on the gates of our
campus might well be preserved.
They consist of a padlock, a chain, a
hook, and a bar with two loops; and
to lock or unlock them requires a spe
cial understanding of these details.
Our attention was called to them by a
profeBBor who not long ago worked
rather late In his laboratory. It was
raining quite hard when ho started
home, and after spending fifteen min
utes familiarizing himself with the!
lock ho climbed over the gate and went
on his way rejoicing.
