"Christianity and Confucianism" is
the subject C. F. Tang, '18M, writes
on in the fifeharticle of a series deal-
ing with that country.
The most important teaching of Con-
fucianism is benevolence and that of
Christianity is brotherhood. They do
not conflict, but are synonymous in
Confucianism advocates that a coun-
try should be governed by a benevo-
lent government rather than by a
military power. Now, some of the Eu-
ropean and American countries have
experienced that the true greatness of
a nation depends upon the character
and spirit of the people. Many of
them feel a desire for religion and
education rather than for military
power. Character is the fundamental
thing in a man or a country.
The following is the Confucious
"The administration of government
lies in getting the proper man. Such
men are to be gotten by means of the
ruler's own character. That character
is to be cultivated by treading in the
ways of duty. This can be done by
cherishing benevolence. Benevolence
is the characteristic element of hu-
manity and the best exercise of it is in
"Hence the soverign should not neg-
lect the cultivation of his own char-
acter. In so doing he should not neg-
lect to serve his parents. To do this
he should acquire a knowledge of men,
and in order to know men he should
not dispense with a 'knowledge of
"The duties of universal obligation
are five and the virtues where they are
practiced are three.
"The duties are those between sov-
erign and minister, father and son,;
husband and wife, elder brother and
younger and the duties belonging ti
"Knowledge, magnanimity, ane
energy are the three virtues universal.
ly binding. The means by which they
carry the duties into practice ar
'singleness of purpose.' Some people
are born with the knowledge of these
duties, some know them by study, and
some acquire the knowledge after a
painful feeling of their ignorance
Some practice with a natural ease:
some from a desire for their advan-
tages, and some by strenuous effort
But the achievement being made it
amounts to the same thing."
Again Confucius has said, "To be
fond of learning is to be near tc
knowledge. To practice with vigor is
to be near magnanimity. To possess
the feeling of shame is to be near tc
"He who knows these three thingE
knows how to cultivate his own char-
acter and how to govern men. Know-
ing how/to govern men he knows how
to govern the kingdom.
"All who rule the kingdom with all
its states and . families have nine
standard rules to follow: The culti-
vation of his own character; the know-
ing of men's virtues and talents; af-
fection toward relatives; respect to-
ward ministers; kind and considerate
treatment of the whole body of officers;
dealing with the mass of people as
children; encouraging all classes of
artisans; indulgent treatment of men
from a distance, and the cherishing of
the princesses of the state."
In short, Confucious gives the truth,
as does Christ, but Christ goes further
and gives us the power to live ac-
cording to that truth. Therefore, be-
ing a Christian, my conscience can
not let me condemn Confucianism, but,
accept it with Christianity, realizing
the higher degree which Christianity
attains in the spiritual strength it
gives to live that truth.

COitBIERICAL WOODS COURSE TO
BE CONTINUED FOR FORESTERS
Prof. L. J. Young of the forestry de-
partment has announced that next
semester he will give for the second
time a course on the identification of
commercial woods and the trees grow-
ing in this locality. The course will
consist entirely of field and laboratory
work and four hours credit will be
given for the semester's work. The
day set for the course is announced in
the bulletin as Wednesday afternoon,
but in case the number of students en-
rolling in the course is too large to be
accommodated in one section, another
will be formed.

the paper famine. The material which
is being used for study is a native
Porto Rican wood called yagrumo.
This wood comes from a rapid grow-
ing tree found along the river banks
in the vicinity of Adjuntos. The wood
is very similar to bamboo and has a
hollow center like this ,plant, but it
lacks the hard surface which is found
on the bamboo.
Prof. Rueben Peterson of the medical
faculty, last Saturday attended a
meeting in Washington to discuss
further and more extensive prepar-
edness in the medical corps of both
the army and navy. The deans and
representatives of 95 medical schools
throughout the country were also sum-
moned to the conference.
Following talks by several army
and navy officers, the meeting adopted
two important resolutions.
1. That each medical school should
be provided with government repres-
entatives, who should deliver a course
of lectures to the students on the work
of the medical corps.
2. That the meeting go on record
as favoring universal military train-
ing in schools and colleges.
These resolutions were sent to the
proper committees in both houses. Sec-
retary Baker met the representatives
in his offices, following the meeting
where he expressed his appreciation
for their efforts and assured them
of his hearty support and co-operation.
In the event that his power can not be
extended to provide the various
schools with medical instructors, it is
said that further legislation may be

of those present in providing medical
officers for the navy.

Major Noble spoke on the medical re-

that a new one was needed.
At present a graduate of a medical
school is granted a commission in the
army or navy upon the completion of
a course of instruction in the army
and navy school of instruction in
Washington. If the request of the
representatives is granted, a mem-
ber of the medical corps will be sta-

tures to junior and senior students, ex-
