men interested in athletics, some of
them having served in similar posi-
tions before and two or three have
had considerable experience in
eastern colleges. The board will
have a meeting at the close of
the week when the commit-
tees on track athletics, base-ball,
foot-ball and tennis will be appoint-
ed. The advisory committee, con-
sisting of four members of the
faculty and three graduate
members of the association will
also be selected at this meeting
as well as the base-ball manager.
Within a week the board will be
fully organized, and the long talked
tact with it gives one some of that
divinity. Goodness is what a good
man does. Why our thoughts grow
is because the thoughts we are think-
ing are God's thoughts. If this com-
munion with our fellow men is a
source of great spiritual growth, how
are we to come by it? First by giv-
ing, secondly by language. Art is
not only great paintings, etc., but
every day life. Art is the best way,
the simplest way of giving one a bit
of your personality. Can you give
me this piece of your personality?
The personality can not be pulled
apart from the expression. Every
time you express-yourself you addi
of Athletic Association in working so much to your personality. Real
order. One of the first things to rhetoric then is to acquire acharacter
be done after the appointment of
committees and the selection of
base-ball manager will be to com-
plete the arrangements for the east-
ern trip, dates already having been
secured from Harvard and Prince-
i
ton.
Ministerial Band.
Prof. Scott met the Band yester-
day afternoon a nd gave an inter-
esting talk on "Ministerial Rhet-
oric.,,
"Though I speak with the tongues
of men and of angels, and have not
love, I am become as sounding brass,
or a tinkling cymbal."
Does the minister have a special
rhetoric? Is there any more sacred
rhetoric than that taught in our
schools and colleges? If so we all
ought to get hold of it.
If rhetoric be only a juggling with
words, a kind of veneer; then it
must be despised, and sacred rheto-
ric is something far worse.
False rhetoric is encouraged by
poor rhetorics and psychologies used
in many of our schools. We can
not afford to ignore real rhetoric.
This, real rhetoric must be sought in
spiritual life. In the first place we
must realize our own individuality,
and self growth does not come by
holding aloof from the world but by
going out into it. A man gets good
out of contact with men and gives in
return what lie has of value. It is a
very difficult thing to go out into
life and meet the buffetings of the
world. Every temptation overcome
enriches that personality by which
he influences men. The mind, of
man in the world is divine, and con-
or personality and a way to express
it. Your power of expression will
grow as you grow nearer to your
fellow men. "No man was ever
eloquent by trying to be so, but by
being eloquent."
You should study Psychology of
to-day because it teaches you to an-
alyze your thoughts; Logic, for it
helps you to keep your thoughts in
correct order. Write only on what
you are interested in. Write only'
what is yourself.
Avoid stock phrases, a holy tone,
affected solemnness, and beware of
firstly, secondly, etc. Some subjects
will not divide. Books for study:
Genung's Rhetoric, J. Henry New-
man's "Idea of a University,"
Lewes' "Principles of success,"
Swift's "Letter to a clergyman,"
Read the Bible, Shakespere, Dante,
Newman and Bunyan, remembering
that not by big words has the world
been moved.
