Van Sant's Business College
N Reports Heavy Registration
Van Sant's Business college reports
a heavy registration of young men
and women for summer work, with
prospects for handling more than
twice as many students this summer
as in previous years. The number of
inquiries as to courses in business
training from students who wish to
enter in the fall is also very heavy.
"The demand for young men and
women with business training in times
of war are very heavy," said Miss
Duffy, manager of the school, "but we
did not expect as large an enrollment
as we have had in the past few weeks
It is a pleasure to us to feel that we
can do our part to aid the government
and business men in keeping things
moving in the times of emergency."

College Training Now
More Than Ever Should
Be Sought by Young Men
Those Below Draft Age Need Education to Fit Themselves
Either for Officers Later or for Civil Life;
x President Wilson Urges Schools
Be Kept Up.
"This is a fine time for me to be going to college and study
ing Latin and Greek and a lot of old stuff, while the United
States is at war and every young fellow is enlisting."
So thinks many an American youth below the draft age or
above 21 waiting- to be called for selective service.
This feeling is but natural. The na
tion does need men to fight its battles.
It does need men to engage in the
work of production to supply and
equip Its fighting forces.
But twice as great as the need for
men in the lighting line is the need for
men of training and education who
can lead and direct the vast industrial
and social life of the country, both in
time of war and in time of peace. The
president has asked every college man
below draft age to remain at college
to complete his education. He asked
every college man of draft age to re
maitfat college until he is called for
The reason of the president's re
quest is plain.
Need Trained Minds.
If the war is over within two or
three years, it is to men of trained
minds that the nation will look to act
as leaders in the inevitable work of re
construction. If the war is not over
wjthin two or three years, it is to men
of trained minds that the government
will look to become officers and to
lead in a vastly increased military
force. For one of the chief recom-

"But why go to college to secure
this training?" asks the American
youth. "Latin and Greek and all that
other old stuff won't do me any good."
In the first place, Latin and Greek,
fortunately or unfortunately, no
longer form the backbone of Ameri
can college courses. Twenty, years
ago the study of the classical lan
guages for which much might still be
said, began to decline, until today only
a small part of the graduates of
American colleges have had more than
two years of Latin, and few have had

edge, even though derived from
books, of finance, of trusts, of bank
ing, of the theories of the production
of wealth, of taxation or of socialism?
Sociology? Every American is a
member of the social group we call
society, and a knowledge of the laws
which control the action of people in
a mass is of great importance to every
citizen of this republic.
Political science? The study of gov
ernment, national, state and munici
pal? Surely, if any citizen is to cast
his vote intelligently, he needs to
know something of how his govern
ment is managed. And this quite
apart from the fact that one of the
crying needs of America today is re
form of our municipal government.
And so down the list, modern his
tory, modern languages, anthropology,
psychology and the study of all the
sciences. Each has a definite practical
usefulness to the. well-informed man.
So much for the college which fur
nishes a general training, the "college
of liberal arts," which does not seek
to prepare a man for a definite pro
fession, but merely seeks to give him
a broad culture and an acquaintance
with the chief branches of human
Plenty of Schools.
But the student who seeks a higher
education doesn't need to go to even
this kind of college. He can go to
any one of a host of excellent schools
of specialized training, which will give
him courses of definite, practical bear
ing upon the profession which he has
chosen to follow, be it law, medicine;
dentistry, pharmacy, agriculture,
chemistry, electricity or engineering
in all of its broad phases. To be sure,
however, many schools of law and
medicine now require at least one or
two years of preliminary college work
before students will be accepted. Many
law and medical schools require a
complete college course.
"But why do I need to go to college
at all?" objects the youth of college
age. "Why can't I get books and
study just as well at home? If a
man really wants to study and is am
bitious to get ahead, he can get just
as much out of studying by himself
as by studying at a college."
To be sure; much can Je done by
individual study; Many man has
secured a good ' education by burning
the midnight lamp- after the comple
tion of his day's work. Furthermore,
the library of a city like Omaha con.
tain the text books used 'in the chief
college courses, or other text books
just as good. Not only this, but the
student will find available there a
number of text books on any subject,
all of which he can study at his
But repeated experiment has shown
that the vast majority of us find it al
most impossible to study regularly
and systematically without, the pres
sure which comes fromth? guidance
of regularly scheduled classes and
trained instructors. ' '
' In addition, a great advantage of do
ing the studying in a regular institu
tion instead of at home is that the
student has the advantage of study
ing under a ; trained professor who
has specialized in the branch of learn
ing which he is .teachirijf--'Hehas
mastered all that the text" books have
to say on his subject. Often he has
written a text book himself or has a
more up-to-date knowledge of his
speciality than even the most modern
text book. In many subjects, like
chemistry, for instaace, text books
become antiquated in a few years. Be
sides, many instructors dispense with
text books Altogether and give lec
tures and assign their students ex
tensive readings in many books and
But a most direct and definite argu
ment in favor of higher education in
colleges and professional schools is
to be found in the results of such
training- The large majority of the
leaders in modern American social,
industrial and professtonaf life have
