The gymnasium exhibition which
will bo held In tho Aromry Friday
night has como to bo ono of tho rog
ular events of the school yoar. In the
past 'it has always been ono of tho
jnost popular events of tho yoar and
has always boon well attended. It is
a thing that deserves liberal stu
dent support, and thoro should bo no
empty seats whon 8 o'clock comoB.
Anything that will tend to increase
tho coromony that 1b thrown around
prominent university ovonts is a good
thing as it tends to add dignity to
them. Tho action of tho Innocents in
adding now ceremonies to tho an
nouncement of those who have boon
chosen to membership 1b a' good thing
for this reason. Anything that will
tend to make tho Innocents more rep
resentative of tho wholo school and
give more dignity to tho society Is to
bo heartily commended.
Modern business Is getting to be
such nri Intricate proposition that tho
fiolf-made man in tho old meaning of
that term has como to bo nearly a
thing of tho past. It Is no longer con-
U4l,tO. Two Stores
sldered an asset to a young man to
bo devoid of all knowledge of tho
higher arts and graces of llfo. Tho
thing that is essential Is that one be
ablo to think and to think ""clearly.
Ab people realize more and moro that
this is tho main thing which a college
education' does for a man, tho percent
age of men in prominent positions
who have never had a collego training
will steadily decrease.
COLLEGE GRADUATES IN CABINET
Tho fact that tho progressive and
up-to-date men of today are collogo
graduates 1b becoming moro and moro
evident every day. It is a striking fact
that without a Blnglo exception the
members of the new cabinet of Presi

in tho class of 1878;' Philander) O.
Knox, tho new secretary of state, 1b

A PREPARATION FOR LIFE.
In tho Dally Iowan of rocont date
appeared an editorial oxhortlng tho
students of. that university to "do
tilings." In tho midst of tho article
waB this paragraph:
"Collogo days aro not a preparation
for llfo; they aro llfo. Wo do not
leave the self-formed in collego bo
hind. It. becomes a part of us. When
wo leave college we are moro than
apt to carry away tho habits of
llfo already formed. Pow men cast
aBlde their ways of living formed at
24 or 25."
.This is partly true and it is partly
most emphatically not true. Of course
tho habits of llfo aro unusually da-
volopod boforo a student loaves col
lego and it is equally true that few
men cast aside their ways of living
formed at 24 or 25. It Is, however,
false to say that collego days are not
a preparation for llfo.
When one stops to consider for a
momont tho activities that consume so
much of a student's time, one is
forced to tho conclusion that tu. few
of them are worth while unless one
takes the view that collogo Is simply
a preparation for tho future. If ono
contends that college activities are
onds in themselves, and aro not to bo
valued for their training rathe' than
as achievements, then ono mu?t take
tho old view that time spent in col
logo is wasted.
It is oniy an infinitely small pro-

portion of tho bare facts that are
learned n college that one Is able
to use in after life. It is only once In
a great whllo that anv of. thn nniincrn
activities that means so much to
students aro giving.any real value out
side of tho collogo. It Is then not the
achievement but tho. training -that is
the valuable part of college work.
. It has been truthfully said that tho
position that tho student takes in the
life of the college is a pretty fair in
dication of tho position that he will
take in society after he graduates
from college. The same problems that
must bo confronted outside of college-
are met in collego and it 1b in learn
ing how to solve these problems that
tho real value of collego life-comes.
Tho experience that it would take
years of ordinary life to acquire is
acquired by tho student In four years.
For the comparatlvely( small number
.who look forward ,to a life spent in
scholarly activities it ,is true that
college days aro not a preparation
for llfo, but are life. These, however,
aro the small minority and for tho
great number this is not true.
