Applies the Lessons of His Life
to Present Day Problems
New and interesting light was thrown
on a familiar topic at this morning's as
sembly, when Dr. Edward O. Sissons.
Professor of Psychology at the Uni
versity of Washington, delivered a lec
ture on “Abraham Lincoln and Ameri
Dr. Sisson’s attitude toward his sub
ject may be summed up in Ins statement
that “all the service which Lincoln has
rendered to the American people, is as
nothing to the service he will render ’f
we ever raise him to his true place in
American life” He insisted that most
Americans, even the best educated ones,
do not know the real Lincoln, Lincoln,
he said, has risen even above Washing
ton in the esteem of the nation and a
knowledge of his retd attitude would
he of great service in solving such
great national problems as the growth
of lawlessness, carelessness of human
life, graft and municipal governments.
What are commonly considered the
chief characteristics of Lincoln, his awk
ward appearance, uncouth dress, jokes,
genial spirit and kind heart, are, said
the speaker, only on the surface. The
three salient things in Lincoln which he
emphasized are: His clearness of
thought, his old fashioned conscience,
and his religion, humility or passion for
In taking up the first point he related
how Lincoln had, early in life, resolved
to forego all loose and tangled think
ing All his writings are clear. Al
though he was not schooled, he was
1 one of the best educated men of the
country. His orations and apprecia
tion of the constitutional questions were
masterful. He possessed a innvai pois
masterful, lie possessed a mental poise
which enabled him to see both sides
| of a question. He was always serious
on serious questions—a trait which, the
speaker asserted, it would be well for
some of our editors to imitate
On the second point, Lincoln’s “in
convenient, fastidious, inflexible moral
ity,” was explained illustrated by inter
In takng up Lincoln’s deep religion
and passion for men, Dr Sissons lament
ed the present religious status of the
country and said that a lesson might
be learned from the great statesman,
ile closed with the hope that we shall
make the hopes, the conscsience and the
justice of Lincoln our own

FRESHMEN 10 OPPOSE
SOPHS ON NEXT FRIDAY
Sophomores Intend to Give Frosh
The annual Sophomore-Freshman
battle for the gridiron supremacy will
take place Friday afternoon. The
Freshmen quietly took up the challenge
issued last week by Captain Barzee, of
the Sophomores, and are organizing a
team with which they hope to humble
the pride of the padded warriors of '13.
Del Stannard, provisional captain of the
Freshmen, and who is said to be an ex
perienced leader, is confident that they
will win. Certain Freshmen, however,
who claim to be “on the inside,” are
quietly offering two to .one odds on
the Sophomores, with no takers. In
any case, it is expected that both classes
will he out in force to the game, and
that class spirit will run high.
The contest is to be strictly “scrub,"
i no man who has been out in the regular
squad being permitted to participate.
