WHAT IS “AGADEHir OF
Collins Denies that It is Society
of Self Appreciative
“As Worthy Sextus, in other words
president, of the Academy of Appreci
ative Genius, I have called a meeting
for eleven o’clock tonight,” said Dean
Just who are members of this Acad
enn of Appreciative Genius is not a mat
ter of public knowledge. “It is not,’
Collins said, "in any way a fraternity
or in a restricted sense a secret order,
although it does not generally publish
its doings, lest the public think that its
members are unduly inflated with their
1 he membership is not large. Six oi
the old men are back, of a membership
of eleven last year, the reporter gath
ered, and is limited only by the number
of appreciative geniuses in college. The
organizers of the Academy last year
set a standard of what constitutes an
appreciative genius, and at the meeting
last night several men whom the society
considers are worthy of the title of ap
preciative genius were admitted to the
Its membership is by the requirements
of appreciative genius more than by
any other reason, limited to upperclass
men, though it does not in any way
calim to be a senior honor society. “Its
members do not meet for mutual ad
miration, but for mutual association
and interchange of ideas for the better
ment of both the appreciative geniuses
themselves and the University. And it
is not so much special genius along any
particular line as it versatile and com
prehensive forms of genius that the
society requires of its members,” said
Collins. “Race, color or previous con
dition of servitude are not considered.
If a man is a true appreciative genius,
we welcome him as a brother and ask
no questions as to his past.”
Of the charter members, six are back.
Worthy Sextus of last year, Lair Greg
ory, is at the University of Washing
ton, two are out in active life, and two
are attending Eastern universities.

PROF. SWEETSER TALK
He Eulogizes Work of George
Higgins In Lumber
In his own, unique, rapid Lire style.
Professor Sweetser delivered one of the
most interesting and inspiring addresses
hist night that have been given before
the M. C. A. this year. The occa
sion was a joint meeting between the Y.
M. and \. \\ . C. A., and was unusu
ally well attended. These meetings,
which tire conducted by the chairmen of
the Missionary Department of both as
sociations, will be held about every six
In spite of the fact that the subject
of the address had been advertised as
"Social Conditions in the Great Cities,"
Professor Sweetser chose to tell of the
work of George Higgens, better known
as the “Lumber Jacks’ Sky Pilot,” in
the lumber districts of Minnesota and
Canada. This man does a work that is
original with him and that has never
been duplicated, lie is a giant in stat
ure, the equal of any of the men he
deals with physically, and in his work
he often is forced to use his strength
in the extreme, as on one occasion when
he went to a saloon after one of the
men and was attacked by the bartender.
With one smash on the jaw he stretched
the burly bartender on the floor, and
taking, his man across his shoulder he
set out for the camp. He works in a
district two hundred miles square, among
thirty thousand lumbermen, and wher
ever he goes with his magazines and
newspapers, preaching sermons and car
ing for the sick men, he is the idol of
the camp. On one occasion he was
slightingly spoken of by one man who
had asked him for a quarter to buy
booze with, and had been, refused. The
other men asked Higgins about it on
his arrival, and on learning the truth,
rode the man out of camp on a rail.
As he talked, Professor Sweetser
threw of the “Sky Pilot” in some of his
interesting situation osn the screen,
which added much to the reality of the
facts that were told.
Following the talk, Himes gave an op
portunity for all who wished to enroll
for the series of eight lectured on the
“Challenge of the City,” that will begin
on Wednesday evening from 6:45 to
7 :30 and continue every week for eight
weeks. The enrollment of forty which
already had been secured was run up
almost to seventy-five.
The Y. M. C. A. Quartette sang two
selections in a very pleasing manner.

"Prospects for basketball material are
excellent," says Captain Jamison. A
dozen or fifteen men have been working
every afternoon for the past two weeks,
with more out every day. Among the
old men are Stine, Perkins, Watson,
Moore and Cockerline. Means and
Walker will be in the game at the close
of football season. A number of men
who played occasionally last year will
try seriously for the team this season,
and in addition there is some very
promising material in t he freshman
class. Among others out Fenton has an
excellent chance to make Varsity cen
Unsuual interest is being developed
in the game this fall, and that with a
large floor and plenty of material
points strongly toward a winning team
this coming winter.
Captain Jamison, speaking of intcr
frat basketball, said: "Tt is very neces
sary that there should be a good turn
out for the inter-class and inter-frat
teams. Those who think that their
chances for Varsity are lessened by be
longing to these are greatly mistaken.
The first team men will be, in a large
measure, selected by the showing they
make in the inter-frat games. The fra
ternity and class basketball season will
open at the close of the football sea
son and I wish to urge upon every
one the necessity for making a good
PERCY P. ADAMS TALKS
TO ENGINEERING CLUB
The Engineering Club held its regu
lar meeting in Deady Hall last night.
Several names were presented for mem
bership to the club and were accepted.
The program consisted of an illus
trated talk by Professor Percy P. Adams
on “The Arch in Architecture.” He
traced the development of the arch from
several hundred years before Christ, to
the present Gothic design, which is the
marvel in architecture. Several pic
tures were shown of different designs
of arches, one of which was the won
derful and stately Colosseum at Rome,
which is a combination of arches.
The club is confining its program to
one hour this year, and desires to have
the active support of every engineering
