'a' ,, ingtons birthday is commem-
orated at the William L. Clement's li-
brary by an exhibition of letters and
biographies dlealing with the first
President's life. The display in-
cludes documents that throw light
upon all the more important events
of \Vashiwgton's career from an ob-
scure boyhood to the highest position
in the land and give a clear ;idea of
the vazrying, opinions about Washing-
ton held by his contemporaries both
in this country and in England.
Th biography written by Masor,
!I. Weems, the rector of Mount Ver-
non parish, is interesting because it is
the source of the popular myth about
the hatchet and the cherry-tree.
Weems, with an imaginative power
that almost disqualifies him as an
authentic biographer, gives the cherry
tree legend with great detail.
The Cherry Tree Story
"Presently George and. his hatchet
made their appearance. George, said
his father, 'do you know who killed
that beautiful little cherry-tree yon-
der' in the garden". This was a tough
question and George staggered under
it for a moment, but quickly recovered
h ?imself, and looking at his father with
the sweet face of youth brightened by
the inexpressive charm of all-conquer-
ing truth, he bravely cried out, "I
can't tell a lie Pa. I did cut it with~
lmy hatchet."
agany vicious criticism were made
agist Washington during the latter
part of his life and copies of some of
these libelous attacks, which sought
to injure his political and military
reputation are included in the display.
An English poem is on display, call-
^ d a "Monody on Major Andre,", whicl-
'11~ne the Americans for killing

Andre as a spy an~d calls Washington.I~
a murderer. The author of the poem
had misunderstood the circumstances
of the case, and Washington wrote
hrapersonal letter defending and
explaining his conduct.
Poems and Essay
Besides the criticism of Washington
written before his death there were a
inumber of poems and essays filled
with extravagant praise of his con-
duct written after his death. Two of ______________
tthese, "Mount Vernon" and "Liberty -
Restored" are on exhibit as examples?

By ClucagoMan
Chicago, Feb. 18.-Prof. Paul Shorey,
head of the department of Greek liter-
ature of the University of Chicago,
has prepared elaborate articles for the
press outlining his views on the statura
of the classics in the modern world.
In these he attacks the propaganda of
H. C4. Wells and his followers.
"Mr. Wells makes unscrupulous use
otf his genius and fluent, attractive
style to broadcast his destructive and
unfounded statements among people
who are gullible and by disposition
opposed to the classics,'" he declared.
Professor* Shorey was recently
granted a leave of absence by the
board of trustees and will leave soon
to spend a year of travel and research
abroad. He has been head of the de-
partment of Greek literature since
1896. While in Europe he will deliver
a series of lectures at the Belgian and
other continental universities.
