Knrel Pollant, or Prague, Bohemia,
editor and publisher of Bohomlnu
philosophical and school magazines,
and national secretary of the "Univer
sal Federation of Free Thought,"
spoke to the Bohemian students of the
University nt a special mooting of the
"Komonsky" club last Friday evening.
He gave a goneral description of the
Bohemian school system and Its origin,
striving at times to drnw comparisons
of existing conditions in Bohemia with
similar conditions In the United
The most Interesting part of his lec
ture contered around the University
of Prague, regarding which he said in
pnrt: "The University of Prague Ik
one of the Institutions that has sur
vived to us from the middle ages, hav
ing been organized In the latter part
of the fourteenth century. It original
ly existed as a Latin institution, and
later was changed to Bohemian, it
maintains 4i& four departments fac
ulties they are tormod law, medicine,
philosophy, and theology. The enrly
learning of the nation was centered in
the cloisters, convents, and monas

the church. Modern learning has been
freed from the power of the church
somewhat, but It still bears many of
the earmarks of the clericalism of the
middle ages which, though preserved
in form, Is sadly violated in spirit.
"A student of. the university Is not
a citizen of the state and not liable
to civil authority. The university Is
a state by itself and on registering
one takes an oath subjecting himself
to university authorities. He takes
upon himself an academic citizenship.
The university has its separate prison

are seldom used? JJot,that the occa

"The university is the .hotbed of all
religious, political, and social move

grievances, whore i class, honor is
merely at stake, (but where real Issues
