PUPILS TO USE BRAINS
HEAD OF WILLAMETTE SPEAKS
BEFOR OREGON CITY
The uae of one's bralna was the
keynote of an address by Dr. Fletcher
Homan, president or Willamette uni
versity, before the Oregon City High
School Assembly, Tueaaay ariernoon.
Dr. Homan's subject wss, "What la
worth while in life," and the advice
he offered should have a moat salu
tary effect. He Is only one of the
notable cltliene of Oregon who have
been Induced by City Superintendent
of Public Inatructlon Tooxe to address
the High School Assembly. Aong
the other were Governor West, Pres
ident Campbell of tbe State Uni
versity, and president Kerr, , of the
Oregon Agricultural College.
After calling attention to honesjy
and Integrity aa easentlala to success,
Preaident Homan dwelt upon the ne
cessity of training ft he brain. He
nointed out how raw, untralued boys
have, by attending college, become
leaders In every honorable walk of
life. The Inference waa that If they
had not had the mental training their
brains would have been dormant, and
nothing worth while could have been
accomplished. He named aeveral men
who had attained high poaltlona In thla
state through their college training,
i TWad arena waa wne- cf the tnoat
Interesting and Instructive that haa
been made before. the ecbool. The
lecture eouree. which waa inaugurated
by Superintendent Tooze more than a
year ago, haa proved popular with the
atudenta, and It goea without eaylng
that they will derive Incalculable bene
fit from the advice of tbeae dlatlng-
uiahed men. While primarily for the
benefit of the atudenta. Superinten
dent Tooze from the beginning ei'
tended Invltattopa to all reatdenta of
the city to attend the lecturea. The
attendance of this character baa not
been aa larg aa waa expected, but
Superintendent Tooze tblnka there
will be a 'gradual awakening among
the people when the new bigh school
building la finished and accommoda
tlona are better,
The Idea of the Superintendent In
establishing the lecture courses waa
to Inculcate moral and educational
thoughta In the minda of the atu
denta. He betlevea that the lecturea
make for better citizenship along the
lines of moral, eoclal and induatrlal
training. The benefit derived la more
substantial than that" which could be
obtained from hooka alone, aaya Sup
