and without price. It is already an
axiom .that the existence of democ-
racy depends upon the intelligence of
its citizens, but it is not so readily ap-
parent to the belated perception of
much of the business world that intel-
ligence and education are the greatest
of all commercial assets. For they
carry with them initiative in action,
energy and perception in'the develop-
ment of resources, the ways of free
spending, the genius of invention and
efficiency, and in truth all the essen-
tials of advancement and progress. An
education which means these things
needs to go farther than mere rudi-
ments and must give opportunity to
the many. So it is that in these es-
sentials the state university is the last
word in democratic education."

The War Department was forced to
make appropriations for new outfits
on account of the preset scarcity of
regulation army cloth for the large
number of men that have recently been
drafted into the army.
Uniforms for the men will probably
be made of a high grade serviceable
material, as near like the regulation
army suit as possible. In case the in-
dividual members of the unit agree in
writing to participate in such camps of
instruction as the Secretary of War
shall prescribe, a large appropriation
will be given for additional clothes.
Curriculum of Studies
The course of training prescribed
for the infantry units of the senior
division consists of practical, theoret-
ical and physical drills. Military tac-
tics, art and history, together with a
number of lecture periods are also
listed in the schedule.

for many years it anticipated that
awakened spirit in the modern world,
and especially in our country, which
recognizes woman's proper place in
the general scheme of things, which
she has been so long denied by anti-
quated and reactionary thought. It
seeks to make woman independent in
thought and action, so far as circum-
stances and the limitations of sex per-
mit, and thus to fit her as an efficient
and fitting companion and comrade
for men, rather than that mythical,
impossible creature, who was the
glory of the sentimentality of the mid-
Victorian period. The 'co-ed,' as she
is generally known, has the oppor-
tunity of a practical test of comrad-
ship during her four years' sojourn
at college, and the roll of marriage
licenses in after years between class-
mates is the best answer to the speci-
ous statement that education gives
woman a distaste for domestic life."
