DR. CHARLES CLARK TO GIVE
ILLUSTRATED VAR LECTURE,
Present. war conditions and their
relations to Italy, will be brought out
in a lecture by Dr. Charles Upson
Clark, director of the American school
for classical studies in Rome, in a
lecture at the Hill auditorium Feb.
28. The lecture will be illustrated
by pictures loaned by the Italian
government. Dr. Clark is brought
here by the University, on the non-
residenti lecture course, and offers
the lecture free to the public. After
paying his actual traveling expenses
out of his fees Dr. Clark turns the
balance over to the fund for the relief
and education of Italian soldiers who
have been disabled during the war.1
(From the Patriotic News Service of
the National Committee of Patriotic
Societies, Washington, D. C.)
It is vital to a powerful navy to have
powerful guns and powerful ships,
but they are only so much well-fash-
ioned steel unless they are manned by
officers and men with trained minds
and hands, with steady nerves and
heads. We have today in the navy all
the men we need until ships under
construction and repair are furnished
and put in commission. The greatest
need, therefore, is for officers who
know how to sail a ship, how to man
its guns, how to organize it to fight.
The Navy's reliance upon the Naval
Academy for educated and capable of-
ficers in peace times is well placed.
Since the war began this fine institu-
tion, unsurpassed in the world, has
been doubled, but today its facilities
are inadequate to graduate officers as
rapidly as they are needed.
But all the normal sources of of-
ficers combined did not serve to give
as many as the expanding navy need-
ed, and we turned with confidence to
the civilians with love of the sea and
some knowledge of seamanship to
qualify themselves for command. Be-
fore the war was declared there were
some reserve officers who had shown
talent and are giving evidence of abil-
ity, but many of the men initiated into
the glorious company of naval officers
came direcf from civil life, and upon
their willingness to learn, their swift-
ness and their aptitude we must de-
pend for a large increase in the num-
ber of those who are to be given com-
mand of our ships.
The navy has given warm welcome
to college students and college grad-
uates. I wish I could personally shake
'hands with each college man who has
entered or will enter the service. I
would like.to say to each
"You will touch here with the stim-
ulating traditions dear to all who love
"Your country has confidence in you.
You will justify that confidence in pro-
portion as you master the work which
you are entering. Its rewards come
only to those of good courage whose
minds are wholly given to learning the
mysteries of modern fighting craft.
"I am empowered officially to wel-
come the youthful defenders of our-
country. You come as citizens called
to duties of citizenship in time of war.
When civil liberty is at stake, civilians
become warriors. So today the repub-
lic has gone to war!
"As you may be called into service
you will go to the fleet, to the patrol,
to the transports, to whatever duty you
will be assigned with the feeling that
you have shown that civilians can do
whatever there is need for them to do.
"You are engaged in a righteous
war, and when faith in right shall
triumph over faith in might, as it
surely will, you will share withathe
veterans of the navy the gratitude of a
peple who have never looked to their
"I do not know what particular ser-
vice you will be called upon to do.
I can not lift the veil. One thing I;
do know, hewever, and that'is that you
will be worthy of the noble work ilito;
which you enter. May the all-wise
Providence give you His strength to;
bear the world to an early peace-a

right alike to all peoples and all na-
