Dr. Vaughan's Lecture.
The senior medics assembled yes-
terday morning in the lower lecture'
room of the medical building, hus
held no regular class day exercises.
Instead they listened to a lecture by.
Dr. Vaughan took as his subject "Cel-
lular Education and the Continuity of1
Life," He spoke of the progressoil
scientific thought in regard to the rela-
tion between cellular development ansss
life. He began his address with the
familiar quotation with him, "Man ixE
a bundle of habits, and fortunate is the-
man whose habits are his friends
"When I am asked," he said, "when the
education of a child should begin, I an-
suer, 'with its grandprents'" Con-
tinuing, he said in part:
"One of the many scientific achieve-
ments of the latter half of the present
century is the overthrow of the doc-
trine of spontaneous generation, The-
principle that all life proceeds from life
seems to be an established fact. By,
this I mean that under the present
conditions of matter there is no suct
thing as spontaneous generation; at
least no such a phenomenon is demon-
strable. This, of course, does not an-
swer the question as to whether, under-
some past condition of matter, spon-
taneous generation did or did nit oc-
cur. For my own part, spontaneous
generation is a logical necessity. Where
I state that for me spontaneous genera-
tion is a logical necessity, I mean the-
coming into existence of some living,
thing, the endowment of a given bit of
matter with life, without the existenes
of a preceding bit of matter also en-
dowed with life, and having a casua
relationship to the one in question, It
means that some one bit of matter wasw
the first to be endowed with life.
"The question is sometimes askedt
Are there any discoverable lws
principles that determine the average-
duration of life? The relation betoseen'
size and longevity is known to be se
variable as to be worthless for the pur-
pose of discovering any general prin-
ciple. It is true that the elephant may
live for two centuries or more, while-
the maximum life of a dog is about 2a'
years, but that of the cray-fish is as-
great. When we consider the influence-
of size in man upon longevity, we f0nD

companies. Giantism and dwarfism are

"Heredity is, however, only one of the-
avenues thrughwhich the life of the
iace may be influenced The giod s-
ample of one may not only cause his
neighbir tu be a better man, but ve
in that neighbor's chiliren Our rn-

it is mental anid moral, Even oi-

Senior Dent. Class Da.
The senior dents, after a va ainco -
about 2 weeks met 'Tuesdsy afternoon at
2 o'clock to hold their class day exer-
cises. The exercises took place in the

portion of the program and gave tIfL-
graduating dents many pieces of gd
advice and related many incidents of
