THE DICTIONARY HABIT
There was once a little boy who was
learning to read. When he came to a
word he did "not know, he merely said
"elephant" and read on. There are
many University students of whom the
same thing might be related. It .is
true that they do not say "elephant,"
but it is but little better to say noth-
There are but twenty-six letters in
the English language and from these
letters have been formed over four
hundred thousand words. The aver-
age undergraduate has not more than
two thousand words in his vocabulary
at best, and there no doubt are many
who have under a thousand. How
many do you know?
Meagerness of speech, inability to
express oneself clearly with the ex-
act shade .of meaning intended, is a
severe handicap. To hear the aver-
age undergraduate, one would iimagin
that everything is either horrible, ter-
rible and awful, or pretty, swell and
A knowledge of words will help the
student in every line of endeavor into
which he may enter, and this know-
ledge can be acquired only from the
dictionary. The book is bare of a plot,
suspense, or a climax, but it 'contains
a wealth of words that, once under-
stood, will be indispensible both for
an appreciation of literature and use
in everyday life. Study the diction-

TO DISCUSS PROCESSES BY
WHICH "CRISCO" IS MADE
Dr. W. D. Richardson, chief chemist
of Swift and company, will lecture on
