The interest in the art of camou-
flage, brought to such perfection on
the battlefields by the enemy and the
allied soldiers, contains an interesting
fact. The eye of the average human
being is a poor weak thing, accept-
ing many illusions for facts. It is
only our brain which saves us from
all sorts of mishaps. The things which
animals and persons carefully train-
ed in observation can see with ease,
the average city dweller overlooks.
And yet the eye can be brought to
a high degree of perfection in the art
of observation. What sort of eyes did
Dickens and Thackeray have that they
were able to portray human nature
with such vividness on their paper
canvas? No better than the ones you
and I possess, yet they saw in people
those peculiar traits and mannerisms,
which, when .described with sufficient
skill, made the people described en-
Careful observation is almost indis-
pensiblel to the average college man
or woman. We can gain it in class by
watching the professor, catching the
fine phrasing of some part of his lec-
ture and noticing the accompanying
facial expression. We can catch the
look on the store keeper as we pass
his window and carefully analyze his
emotion or the amounkof intelligence
he displays. We can watch for the co-
ordination of muscles and brain which
enables the expert gymnast to do the
giant swing in the gymnasium. All
these things call for a large amount
of training of eye and brain. Care-
ful observation is akin to careful rea-
soning. If we lose the habit of going
blindly and acquire the instinct of
watching the panorama of the world
pass before us, a new plane of living
will be opened before us. To be real-
ly alive we must learn to observe.
With the faculty's subscription
mounting higher "over the top," we
are beginning to wonder if there are
any members of that body who have
as yet failed to earn a degree of
L.L.D., received for assisting in the
Liberty Loan drive.

ise they must. Speedy victory is
ir only salvation in this war. The
t that they are sacrificing tens of

a detracts but little from the pow-

aptured Messines would spell a
ory for the enemy. It means the
s of territory, but aside from that
victory will be a hollow one. Ter-
ry is as nothing compared with

alties each foot they retire. It is a-
stion whether the capture of the

in the adjacent territory will pro-
g the ultimate result, for perhaps
harvest of German lives by the
ed machine guns must equal this.

"Life in the army for seven months
