SCHOOL TO ATTEND
An Important Question Which
Must Soon Be Answered
in Many Homes.
PARENTS SHOULD DECIDE
Vacation is about half gone. Many
students who intend to go on with
their education this fall have not yet
decided definitely to what school they
So much depends on the decision of
this question that it is given much
consideration and long study in most
Parents realize that upon the wise
decision of this question the welfare
of their children may depend..
It is not merely a question of the
"getting through" of the young man
or young woman. It goes far beyond
that. It affects his or her whole fu
ture well being and may decide
whether he or she is to be a great
success or whether failure and dis
couragement is to attend throughout
all the years of life in the world.
Responsibility on Parent.
Responsibility rests upon the parent
and it is more than mere financial re
sponsibility. A decision in a financial
matter may be wise or unwise and the
my loss is financial and that is soon
aeh other better, and the student profit
by the personal example of teacher and
professors; they Imbibe from them their
hl(h Idealg oi Ufa and life's work.
What the Profeaaor Mar Do.
Through auch contact wtee and consci
entious professors can see Into the char
acter and tendencies of students. By words
and Ideas dropped Into that fallow soul
soil they are able to develop a character
of strength and to give It a firm founda
tion early In life, so that It has ample
opportunity and the best conditions for full
and complete development.
N. 8. i
But a decision In Mitch a niifHnn If It
be unwise has cumulative results of evlt.
And, on the other hand, if It h win it ha
equally cumulative results of good and the
student goes on from honor to honor and
his life is a success.
Naturally and from the nature of the af
fair it Is utterly impossible for each parent
to visit each and every school separately. If
this were possible even It would not be pos
sible to form a concrete Idea of each school's
qualifications as a place of education for any
given prospective student.
There are so many separate features of'
the school that must be taken Into the
consideration of the subject in arriving at a
wise decision. No person could form an
Idea of any one school without remaining In
tt while It Is in active operation for several
Points to Be Considered.
It would be necessary to decide first upon
us scholastic attainments, upon the thor
oughness and conscientiousness of Its teach
ing forceB, upon the standard, whether it be
high or low, that Is required of the student.
Then the moral tone of the Institution Is
of highest Importance. It exerts a subtle In
fluenco upon those who attend and who are
destined to spend four of the most formative
years of their lives in an Institution of
learning, years when the moral fiber Is In
Its most important stage of development,
and when it will form Itself with strength
anoV resisting power to vll If the examples
upon , which It models Itself are good, and
when, on the other hand, It will become
weak and flabby If It Is formed In a weak
and flabby mold.
Educators today agree that more to due
to environment than to heredity. Heredity
both In diseases of the body and of the
mind and soul haa but a small part to
play. Children of the worst possible an
cestry, taken at an early age, before their
habits and tastes have been formed and
i laced in good environment, become our
eading men and women.
Others of good ancestry, allowed to grow
up on the street and as corner loafers, be
come mere weaklings.
Importance of Moral Tone.
o me muni ione or me college to which
j airi are sent is or an im
portance second only to the Importance of
the educational tone. Secondary, did we
iay? 80 some would hold. But there to
ample ground for considering it not sec
ondary, but of primary importance. For,
of what use Is a sound education if the
moral fiber is not strong? Mere book
learning Is not of supreme Importance.
Neither Is the great gain securod from a
college education. Some of those who come
through with flying colors and highest
marks in their studies, but who have neg
lected entirely the college life, the wbole
uome mingling with their fellows in classes
and In the activities of college life, have
degenerated later to mere ciphers and book
worms, not getting out of life anything near
iv hat they ought to get and would get If
thpy had developed a sound moral fiber.
A third important pan of the college to
he chosen for the prospective student Is
the personal piemen t. and this must be
uarefully considered by parents.
Upon this In founded the argument of
the small colleges. Where the student body
Is umall therti Is. perhaps, more of a
tendency for the students to get Into per
sonal contact with the tearhors. It Is
here that teachers and students get to know

AN INFORMAL DISCUSSION
Washington, July 22. Anticipating

subject was informally discussed.
Probably it will be left to the London

Some of the oldest and largest of
the German banking firms in New
York consequently do not figure in
the blacklist, even though one of them
is known hy the British authorities to
have purchased the nickel which has
been loaded on the German submarine
Deutschland at Baltimore, because
that was in the line of their business.
But where firms are known to be
actually under German control; where
the profits of their business go to
Germany, or where Germanic firms or
American firms acting as agents have
gone out of their regular lines of busi
ness to deal with Germany, British
merchants have been prohibited from
dealing with them.
British authorities here contend no
legitimate American firm or corpora
tion will be injured by the blacklist
nor German firms in the United States
which have confined their operations
to their own line of business.
