EDUCATION A LA NIETZSCHE
COLLEGE education received a dum-dum bulletr—in the form
of a communication—from a former correspondence-student, who
quit patronizing the Univihsity’s get-educated-quick department,
fearing lest his get-rich-quick ambitions suffer from the development
of too tender a conscience*
The letter frojp this would-be Super-man shows only too clearly
that he did his correspondence work in history. On investigation we
verified this deduction, and thereby lies the whole explanation. One
of the courses which the student took was European history, which
begins with the Napoleonic wars. The latter shows only too clearly
the effects of this study. Evidently the writer, who wants to develop
“a callous conscience and a slumbering pity” drank deep of Napol
eonic lore, and, like the youth who super-saturates hi* receptive mind
with Nivk Carters untir he goes out "scooping” for hair-breadth
escapades and adventures, was hypnotized by the Corsican’s "will to
power,” if we be permitted to use Nietzsche’* phrase. Thi*, of course
is only a theory but it looks plausible from the tenor df the letter.
Napoleon desired military fame and international power, and
human life was no obstacle worth noting. On the memorable retreat
from ice-bound Russia, Napoleon ordered hi* favorite company to
shoot down their own men-in-amts in order that they might escape
across a bridge. So, too, the late correspondence student has ambi
tions—ambitions to "get riches, no matter by what method; to secure
fame, even at the cost of a million souls; to trample upon the faces
of the poor and make the rich bow before him.” If we remember
correctly Napolqon is accredited with saying something to that
Not only does this person with the ambition of the Corsican
general show a knowledge of history, but also a knowledge of phil
osophy. His ambition is purely Nletzschean—the Individualism of
a tyrant, who is endowed with an exaggerated idea of the will-to
Let us say to the writer—If he ever reads this-Mhat he is far
behind the times. Really we don’t think you can get by, unless you
seek other fields. The super-men of tomorrow will constitute the
aristocracy of brains, and we know of no better place for brain-food
tlmn the University. Also the tendency in the world of modem com
merce is anti-Nietzschean to a great extent. Rockefeller realized this
when he stated that he would iike to see capital and labor rconciled.
Henry Ford got the same "hunch” when he instituted his noted
profit-sharing system, and he certainly isn’t of the trample-in-the
lust variety that the writer idealizes—at least not from the looks of
his peace pilgrimage.
If you mean what you say—but, really we think you’re "kid
ling"—we have a scheme for you to follow. If you want to get
rich, and are not particular about the method—why turn Jimmy Val
?ntine: if you tvant to secure fame, even at the cost of a million souls,
▼o to I'm-- '-ie and fight both sides; if you want to trample upon the
faces of • v>or and make the righ how down—and worship you, we
nfer w1 v to assume the role of a modem Peer Gynt. If you can
Jo all of these things, your “lofty" ambitions will be realized.
EVERYBODY OUT FOR GOLF
SATl'Ris Golf Day, which does not mean a lot of hard
work by anv me ns. On the other hand it means a lot of fun for the
time being; and a lot more in the future. It also means a free lunch.
The object of Golf Day is primarily to get the new golf links
ready for use.
The committee in charge of the work wants as many men as
are free on Saturday morning. The more, the easier; and the greater
the fun. The University women have agreed to prepare a huge
luncheon to be served on the grounds to the workers only. They
have prepared enough to feed a hundred men—and themselves.
If the turn-out is great the work can be completed in two or
three hours—maybe less. At noon this big luncheon will be served
by the women and after the remnants have been cleared away some
of the expert golfers of the campus will instruct the parvenus how
to hit the ball without busting the club, and instruct in the difference
between a stymie and niblick—and a host of other things that such
men ys’ President Wilson^and ex-President Taft like to talk about a
0 few minutes every day°after they have settled with international dif
ficulties, and teaching law°
The big 0problem is to get the men out. The women will be
there with the lunch. Will the men be there with hoes, rakes, pitch
forks and shovels?
We recommend that every organization—fraternities and dor
mitory—hold themselves responsible for a reasonable number of
men. Surely the effort is worth the reward, which is a golf course
near at hand and for the use of all students.
