Professor Brumm spoke on the sub-
ject of "Keeping Up With One's In-
telligence." He said that the trouble
with the present system of education
is that it is concerned only with the
knowledge of the mind or intellect,
while the equally important factor of
the emotion is entirely overlooked.
"Since no machinery is available by
which to educate the emotions," as-
serted Professor Brumm, "the duty
drops on the individual. Therefore
each student should endeavor to im-
prove and train his emotions as well
as his intellect."
Because of this emotionai weak-
ness, continued Professor Brumm,
persons do things impulsively which
they would not do with trained emo-
tions, and also fail to do things which
their intelligence prompts them to do
because their emotional feelings pre-
vent them.

At Khorsabad Loud's expedition is
engaged in excavating where the
French left off at the city of Sargon,
II. In commenting on his expedi-
tion, Loud said, "What lies within the
walls ot this ancient city has never
been known. It is the investigation
of that area which will, I hope, keep
me occupied for some seasons to come
in -an effort to learn more about the
every day life of the Assyrians, whose
military exploits in building up that
great empire have long been known."
Paa-e had 186 Rooms
The palace of Khorsabad, built at
the northwest of the city, contains
186 rooms arranged about open courts.
Inside the palace were six temples,
dedicated to the Assyrian gods.
The city itself is notod for its im-
posing gates at the citadel. These
gates were huge human-headed
winged bulls, which are still in per-

2600 years ago.
Find List Of Assyria-i Kings
The tablet containing the lists of
the Assyrian kings was found under
a pile of rubbish in a small room in'
the temple of Nabu, the god of WIs-
dcm, which was built on a flatform 25
feet above the street.
Living conditions at the Khorsa-
bad excavations are not as primitive
as one might imagine. In a recent
letter Loud said, "You may think of
us as living in tents and eating the
strange concoctions which make up
the diet of the Oriental. As a matter
of fact there are very few of the com-
forts of western civilization which
we are without. Our house is of mud
brick with a thatched roof, primarily
a native house done over to suit our
requirements, but I must admit the
addition of bath rooms and a living
room as well as the tent-like cloth
ceilings so placed as to prevent the
descent of wild life, said to consist of
mice, snakes, and scorpions, in the
thatch."-
