Oratory is now in the field. "Will the stu
dent body not learn that it is one of the ele
ments of" University culture? Can college
men not see that it is one of the strong means
of future advancement and present success?
The 'grind' and the grad-grind' may be able
to let people know that they exist if they
will get themselves into the coming Oratori
cal Contest.

The aim of a University education is to
make thinkers. A course of training in the
Liberal Arts is intended to make liberal
minded men. Culture means toleration of
all and choice of the best. This idea of mak
ing partisans is not in accord with university
spirit or life: its purpose is rather to train
and inform that a proper choice may be made
when occasion requires. To educate means
to teach to think not to assert, to reason not
to rant, to judge not to justify, to broaden not
to narrow, and to become liberal not partisan!
Partisanship hinders development, clouds
calm consideration, restrains generous ten
dencies, and induces bigotry and dogmatism.
Let us frown on any attempt to inject parti
sanship into the current of college thought
and view every question in the light of reason
and in the way of the liberal.
Prodigies are not necessarily teachers. Be
cause a man has a three-decker brain and can
solve everything from addition to differentials
it does not follow that he can convey his
power to others or impart his mental processes
to his pupils. Teachers must have method
as well as knowledge. To grasp a theory in
Economics isn't to cause others to realize it,
to appreciate the beauty of literature isn't to
cause others to appreciate the same, to know
Greek dactyls or trigonometric formulas is
not to cause others to know likewise. We
sometimes think that teachers should be se
lected with more circumspection as to ability
to teach and less regard to ability to know.
A walking encyclopedia, or a living mathe
matical theorom won't help a student, if the
one is never opened and the other never
demonstrated. That teacher is best who
soonest makes himself useless to the student.
