DAILY REPORTER TALKS WITH
INGERSOLL AT COOK HOUSE.
Sectarian Schools a Menace-Prac-
tice Court a Grand Thing-Com-
pulsory Education Endorsed-May
Come Here Feb. 22. 1896.
The Daily reporter had a pleasant
chat with Cel. Robert G. Ingersoll at
his room in the Cook house yesterday
afternoon. The colonel's daughter ac-
dents wanted me I wouid make m
effort to satisfy their wishes. You
know I am here today, there tomor-
row and can't make and definite ar-
rangements a few weeks ahead."
Col. Ingersoll is affable and pleats-
ing as a talker. Ite is what might ba
termed a fine conversationalist. Al-
though busy when the Daily reporter
called het gave himself up to the to
many people unpleasant task of being
interviewed with a good grace that
took the Daily man by storm.
rompanied him on this trip as she does J
on most of his trips. The journey .T
from his home did nat seem to have
wearied Col. Ingersoll much though
his hair is white and his vigorous
manhood is commencing to show the
assaults of old age.
Int response to a question as to un-
versities in general and Michigan in
particular the colonel said: "I iuow
nothing, almost absolutely nothing, of
university and college work," adding
with a merry twinkle of his eye, "I
would be glad to tell you that. In
your law school work though, I see
much greater benefit to the student
fron office study." Later, however,
when the practice court work was ex-
plained, he said, "The value of such
work cannot be over-estimated; to
plead and plead well is the first thing
that a law school or an office should
teach .the student, and if as you say
theory is thus woven into practice
legal education has attained a high
stage of development."
The colonel also said, "I regard
sectarian schools as a blight and a
menace to American liberty, our hope
as a nation rests with the schools un-
der governmental control; that is the
common schools and the state univev.
sities. A pational university would be
:a good thing."
My views on the Bible as a work of
literature are not as glowing as those
of my Christian friends yet I see no
harm in the use of certain portions of
the book, say like Ecclesiastes or The
Song of Solomon, in literary study in
schools and universities run by funds
from the ,taxpayers' pockets."
"Michigan, from the little I know.
hasn't paid very much for her state
university, though I have not seen
enough of it to give very much weight
to any opinion. Education is the foe
of superstition and I heartily believe
in it. Compulsory education even to
the higher institutions of learning
would be a great factor in the au-
vancement of the U'nited States as a
force among .governments."
Col." Ingersoll said when asked by
the Daily man if he would be willing
to come here if invited on Feb. 22,
1896.. "It's hard telling where I will
be then, you know,.bnt if the law stu-
A DISCUSSION OF "BIBLE STUDY
FOR PERSONAL GROWTH."
Reapons for Systematic Study by
Students-A Conversation With
Mr. J. R. Mott delivered his third
address last evening in Newberry hall
and took as his subject "Bible study
for personal growth." He urged the
necessity of coiineiiing this study
while in college and gave several prac-
tical reasons and illustrations why this
should be done.' The first ieason was
that college is pro-eminently the place
to establisi personal study of the
Bible. The second reaoon given was
that while we are studying other sub-
jects the Bible should not be neglected.
As another reason, Mr. Mott said it
was absolutely essiential for the pro-
motion of a student's spiritual life,
and again it is necessary for the prep-
aration of one for Christian work.
In speaking of a conversation which
he had with air. Drummond the speak-
er said he asked him if he would name
three subjects for Christian study
among students; after a moment's re-
fIlection Mr. Drummond replied: (1) the
study of Christ, (2) the study of Christ,
and (3) the study of Christ I nelosing
the speaker said let the time of study
be regular, let it be daily and unhur-
ried and let it be the choicest thme of
Lake Forest Wins at Chicago.
The triangular indoor athletic meet
between the University of Chicago,
Lake Forest and Northwestern oc-
curred Saturday evening in the gym-
nasium of the first mentioned institu-
tion, and was won by Lalte Forest.
The contest between Chicago and
Lake Forest were particularly close, as
had- been expected, while on- aeount
of the narrowness of the running track
Northwestern did not take part in the
relay race and the half-iile run.
The standing of the three, coRnpeti-
tors was as follows: Firsts, Lake For-
est, 2; Chiesgo,:.20; Northwestern, 5;
seconds, Lake Forest, 8, Chicago, 8;
Northwestern, 4; thirds, Lake Forest
1; Chicago, 3;. Northwestern 3.
