Students of the University and-
others listened to a talk in Art Hall
tho other evening by Vojta Benes, an
educator from Europe. Mr. Benes is
at present making a tour of the United.
States, investigating the American ed-'
ucatlonal system. In his lecture ho re
viewed the popular tendencies in Bo
hemia and the rise of the social demo
crats. At the present time, according
to Mr. Benes, Bohemia is the farthest
advanced of any of the Austrian states
and is paying larger taxes than the
other states. The representatives of
Professor Martin of the Commercial
department spoke before the Lincoln
Ad Club tho other .evening on "Tho
Economic Side of Advertising." Tho
talk dealt with advertising and Its

that the University of Prague has an
enrollment of 5,000 students and is not
able' to take care of the students ade
quately. Mr. Benes finds the schools
of the United S,tates especially well
equipped for the teaching of the sci
ences. In Bohemia there is no ath
letic system connected with the uni
versities as there Is in 'America. A
few of the better, known schools are
now installing such departments. To
a large extent this want is supplied by
clubs which carry on athletic work and
which have been' quite successful in
international competition. Among
