combined with considerable wit, in
his observation. Professor Wilcox
Bald in part:
I "Specialists are the result of tho
great development of Bclence within
tho past two decades. The rapid In
crease in the Idea of the division of
labor has made itself felt in the pro
fessions, tending to make all activities
more intensive. A specialist Becks to
know thoroughly his own lino. The all
around man is no longer considered
much of a man. The public at large
Is beginning to study the specialist as
"The (iiestlon confronts us, 'What
may the botanist do in the future?'
MobI Ileitis are narrow at the present
time becnuse every great brunch has
been 'divided Into many elementary
Holds and they may bo divided ad in
finitum. We llnd this process of divi
sion In life where people break up
into groups according to profession
socioty, clothes, and so forth.
"It is said that tho greatest sciences
are more or less Intimately related to
the other sciences, and the Bame must
be true of the scientists themselves.
One cannot be a groat chemist with
out being a thorough physicist.
"Hotany and botanists' should not
cater to the demand, of commerce
1 alone, and yet the field of usefulness
Is open to all botanists. The most
necosasry problems are yet to be
solved. Carloads of discussion lmve
boon written where only an ounce of
desired fact is hidden. Methods and
processes aro destrod. Definite facts
are needed. This done, the necessary
application of facts will follow.
"Plant pathology is making great
headway horo, and the results of this
work aro -such as wo may be proud of.
Plant breeding Is recolving much at
tention and much valuable data is be
ing secured. We are Investigating
bacteria to prevent Its ravages.
"Tho practical value of botany
marks a new era In the work It may

the boarding schools, and useful only
for cultural benefits; but now it Ib
more than a memorizing of names. It
has a real value. Opportunities for

HOPE TO CLEAR UP LAST YEAR'8

MAKE SHOW AN ANNUAL EVENT
Plan to Use the Money Obtained to

When tho report of the business
manager of tho 1909 Blue Print was
made last fall at the first meeting of
the Engineering Society it was found
that there was a deficit of $216 from
the Bluo Print. Tho question Immedi
ately aroso as to how this deficit
should bo and could bo paid. Vari
ous plans were suggested, and finally
President Dyo of tho Engineering So
city appointed a committee to devise
meunB whereby this deficit could be
met. The committee was composed of
the following members of tho Bocicty:
O. N. Mumm, D. C. Mitchell, J. A.
Ryan, J. H. Amberson, H. L. La Chap
olio, and A. D. Stancllffe. The com
mittee met and various plans were
discussed, and finally one plan was
hit upon which seemed would be suc
cessful If carried out.
To Give Vaudeville.
This plan was reported to the En
gineering Society last evening and met
with Instant approval. The bill for
tho evening would be composed of
Boven or eight acts by various mem
bers o the Engineering Society and
would be held In the Temple theater.
Another feature of this plan would be
to have an orchestra which would also
be composed of members of the en
gineering college. TlniB If this plan
is followed' out as it is contemplated
now the entire show will be put on by
members of the engineering college
with an engineers orchestra.
A program has already been made
out by the members of the committee,
but this is only a skeleton program
and will be revised to a certain ex
tent. There is excellent material for
the members of the engineering col
lege to produce a most excellent vau
deville and one of high claBS, worthy
of the patronage of the students.
Make Up Deficit.
The expenses of such an undertak
ing would be comparatively light, and
if enough scats could be sold to fill
the Temple theater It would be pos
sible to clear up the present deficiency
on the Blue. Print.
It Is also hoped by the members of
the society that it would be possible
to make this vaudeville an annual af
fair and that tho money which would
be raised In this way after this year
can be used In defraying the expense
of getting some prominent speakers
here to address tho members' of tho
society on phases of engineorlng work.
Pror. J. B. Miner of the University
of Minnesota declares that the list of
backward students-in that institution
Is four-fifths made up of students
from well-to-do families. Henry Van
Dyke In a recent paper in Scrlbner's
Magazine also tells of tho handicap
which Is found to rest upon the sonB
of wealthy parents as they are rated
in scholarship In various universities.
Frank RuBsell White, formerly of
Dyons, Neb., has been appointed direc
