Dr. Powers of Boston Here In
Through the agency of tho Nebras
ka Art association the faculty arid
students will nave ah opportunity of
attending thd nrt 'lectures by Dr.
Powers of Boston. Dr. Powers is one
of the closest students or art in this
country, ills lectures have the rare
merit of being so clear that the mer-o-t
tyro In art can understand them
and tho accomplished artstudent finds
in them abundant food for reflection.
Lorado Taft in speaking of one of
h's lectures says: "His grasp of the
subject, his presentation of that ex
alted period of outdoor painting, of Its
philosophy and of its spiritual signi
ficance, wpre Easterly Tho merely
technical considerations which had
cluttered my mind, obscuring the
larger view, were sent flying, not ig
nored, but put into tho subordinate
p'ltibe where tney belong. When he
ceased speaking I felt that the in
spired words of this extraordinary
man aad given mo one of the great
est hours of my llfo. It was tho great
est 'art lecture I over heard."
These lectures afford the rare op
portunity of the year. The general
subject' is Michael Angelo and the Cul
mination of Christian Art. The first
Jpcture will treat of "Michael Angelo
.and Savanarola: the earlv works:"
bonsisC,tho Becon(1( of .T'he sl8tlno coiling;
the third, of "The Solitary Genius; the
TombB; Oie Last Great Sculptures."
These lectures will be. Illustrated by
the University electric stereoptlcoh
and given in the Temple March 4, 6
and 7. Reserved seats for tho three
lectures cost one dollar and are'ndw
on sale at Crancer's and Porter's.
Should. any profits accrue from these
lectures they will be usedyin 'purchas

8fent by President Butler of Columbia
to txamlnc European Methods of
Teaching and Discipline.
James II. Canfield, ox-chancellor of
tho University of Nebraska, and How
librarian of Columbia' College, was
sent to England and franco by Presi
dent Butler of Columbia Collego to
make an examination of the metiiods
of teaching and of discipline wKlch'
are in use In upper classes or forms
d'f typical public schools, of English
grammar ' sohools, and of French
lycbes; and' in, tho first and second
yea'r of fbsldohce in colleges and uni
versities' of both England and Prance.
He secured much information
through conferences with prominent
professors, lecturers, 'bead toasters
and of!her bftlc'ers of Instruction arid
administration, Inspection of clhSB
work, talks with students, study of
curricula and interviews with gradu
ates. Ho Kds formulated two funda
mental axioms of educational thought
of England and Franco. "First, all
mod fern educational ideals center in .a
movement which seeks more1 complete
and efficient employment of. all human
gifts and powers, alUnatural.ioccps
andall -mnterial resourcesvin'behalf
of national advancement? and well-be-irig-
of , every person wlthlh-the nation r
seconu, every .university miist sec
itself the task of satisfying threo
classes of demahds arid rispirations:
those of the nation, tbp people at
large;, that of tho students who at
tach themselves to tho Institution,
and in a certain senso those of ill'
whd hope to have the advantages bf
higher education; and those of its
officers." v .; " v '
In" regard to the students) h'ejsays
they need,arid very generally desire, "
effective instruction arid stimulating
companionship and reasonable prep
aration for life. They cannot receive
the first unless their instructors of
every grade possess" remarkable
strength of character, unusuai mental
equipment, careful and .thorough prep
aration, unceasing industry, unflagging
zeal, alert and compelling consciences, .
large unselfishness, ancl actiye' sympa
thy., N university is, wisely admin
istered which does not seek for, such
men, any university is uufortunato
which for any reason cannot hold such
men when found, and .every university '
is unworthy and veak which does not
re!!eve,lts,eif of the burden jof men who
fall serlousjy below -this standard.
