8CHOOL8 OF JOURNALI8M.
Within tho paBt few months slnco
tho oponlng of tho school year the
attention of general readorB has been
attracted again and again to tho ex
ploits of th Schools of Journalism or
Departments of Journalism main
tained by somo of tho leading Btato
unlvorsltlos of tho country. Theao
divisions of tho collogo courses of
their respective Institutions aro con
tinually doing things, which bring
upon ,them the notice of tho genoral
public. Tholr unique and recently
widespread activities havo caused
much discussion among both newspa
per men and tho public In general as
to tho valuo of such departments.
With this fact in mind, It is Interest
ing to noto that tho domand for such
courses Is comparatively largo. Pro
fessor Merlo Thorps of tho depart
ment of Journalism of tho Uplveralty
of Washington tells of this feature of
tho work In an address delivered be
fore the National Editorial Associa
tion last summer. Ho said In part:
"Tw6 years ago tho University of
Washington moodestly announced a
class in journalism and twenty-two
students enrolled for tho four hours a
week. In tho February following the
demand for this specialized training
was such that another "class was or
agnized 'and two monthB later tho re
gents decided that tho eagerness with
which men and women applied fof
thlB branch of Instruction warranted
a department. Slxty-Blx students reg
istered last year for the four-year
course, and one hundred and forty
men and women took work in the de
partment, pf these sixty-six, fifty-one
intend, to follow somo phase of news
paper "work as a career.
"When tho University of Washing-
iMrs. Herzog, "Pianoist
ton installod this department of jour
nalism, no other higher institution of
learning, bo far as I know, had such
a department. Ono or two universi
ties had courses In 'newspaper writ
ing,' but none offorod systematic train
ing for nowspapor men Tho past
year, however, saw no loss than half
n dozen universities offering the four
yearB' specialized -work, with a full
fledged school at tho University of
Missouri, w'horo a membor of the Na
tional Editorial Association holds
forth as dean. Next September six
other universities, Including Minne
sota and Colorado, will Inaugurate llko
departments. Theso Institutions aro
not only heeding the call made on
them by studchts, but havo been
forced to accede to the domand made
on thorn by editors, educators, and
men of public affairs."

"The Great John Ganton"
with GEO. FAWCETT
At the Oliver Tonight and Thurs. Night
Among tho many successes that the Messrs. Shubert have achloved with
tholr productions In rocont months, tho most conspicuous Ib, perhaps, "The
Great John Canton," a powerful drama of American business life, written by
J. Hartley Manners, from Arthur J. Eddy's novel, "Ganton & Co." It Is this
play that has been selected as tho attraction at tho Oliver Theatre on tonight
and Thursday night for a return engagement. In Bending to this city this
brilliant production, the Messrs. Shubert pay tho local theatregoers a subtle
compliment. The attraction comes direct from tho Lyric Theatre in Now
York, where Jt has enjoyed a long and prosperous run. The stellar role Is
played by Mr. George Fawcett, considered by many critics the foremost char
actor actor of the present day stage. In tho part of John Ganton, Mr. Fawcett
has a role that fits his personality like a glove. John Ganton is' portrayed as
a man of tremendous power and initiative. By methods which would hardly
meet tho approval of. modern anti-trust laws, lie has forced himself Into a
position of supremacy In a flold of the packing business. By crushing com
petitors his lines havo extended to all parts of the world and as the play
opens he Is found In absolute possession of this vast Industry. The story of
the drama has to do with John Ganton's change of heart, which comes to him
after his son has made him see the iniquity of his business methods and tho
great responsibility which thoao mothodB entail. There has been no cost
spared in tho preparation of this play, every scone being a truthful representa
tion of the locaje that it is Intended to represent. In selecting tho cast tho
Messrs. Shubert havo Indicated the same prodigality. Surrounding Mr. Faw
cett is a cotorio of artists well known tq the New York playgoers. Tho com
pany numbers twenty-five, including among which are Thurston Hall, John
Webster, Lucius Henderson, Allen Fawcett, Louis Breeaen, George Caldwell,
Charles Gay, Jack Barnes, Frank Smlther, Fanchon Camphell, Ellsle Scott,'
Ruth Tomllnson, Emllle Cqllaway and Florence Glenn.
