that ho many studontH utterly Ignoro
tho Boml-woekly convocatloiiB. Much

Coach Kennedy Is tho sad-faced ono

THE WRONG PROFESSION.
Pity tho university Btudont who Iibb
chosen a profession, pursued the study
of it for months or years, and then
found that it is not fitted to his tem
perament or to his needs. Diillcult
indeed is his situation especially if
ho bo of tho avorago ago of univer
sity students and without any too lib
. oral an amount of money with which
to aocuro the education which is to
fit him Tor his life work.
Tho decision of a profession Is ono
, of the big questions in a man'a life.
It settles for him not only his finan
cial status, within certain limits, hut
it ' decides tho question of his. whole
life's happIneBB. Thoro aro- men who
can do dlsagveeablo tasks, year after
year, without feeling the irksoinoness

without omltional fatigue. But for
tlie great majority of men, undesired

work bringH with it a 'Btross of tem
per and a pull at the chords of pleas
ure and happiness which cannot laBt
long without injuring the nature of
tho boing. Thcso considerations of In

men, weigh moro thnn those of finan

Jeopardy In making tho eholco of u
Onco made, tho choice Is not easily
changed. Lack of mpney to spend on
furthor education, or lack of courage
to begin at the bottom at a lato age,
mako It hard for a man to switch from
ono profoBBlon to another after ho has
onco fairly entered upon tho first
choice. Frequently ho either Bticks it
out with deplorably' dissatisfying re
sults to himself and his frlonds, or
elso ho takes up somo lino of general
business whoro specialized education
is not an ossential. In tho first caso,
his condition 1b likely to bo almost in
tolerable; in tho latter, ho may always
bo hounded "with the knowledge of IiIb

ultlmato results, tho mental worry of
the young student when he first finds
out his mistake is likely to try his
spirit, and tb warp it in the trying,

WHAT EDUCATION DOE8.
Tho man without an education or
with only tho limited ono Is handi
capped in his earning capacity for life
unless he Is of unusual intelligence
or has unusual, opportunities. He
enters tho crowded ranks of tho un
skilled laborer or tho poorly paid clerk,
lie haB no outlook on life but his own
narrow rut. Literature, art, culture,
and other attendant pleasures are
closed to him because he has no timo
to acquire a knowledge of them. His
interests are confined to his own per-'
sonal affairs and those of his friends,
who aro like him. Life Is mediocre
and ho has not tho ability to make It
College education does not always
mean business success or wealth, but
it doos mean something Infinitely bet
tor. Tho works of great minds, poets
writers from tho first to thp last aro
open to him. Tho world is his play
ground though Uo may nevor got far
ther than his home and his desk.
His children profit by tho Intellectual
atmosphero of his home. Ho Is a man
with a man's heritago of the cultural
advantages piled up for him for cen
turies, not a mero "gleaner in tho
fields." Dally Mlssourian.
