consider the subject of. gambling
among, professors and students.. It
wasx expected that, a j statement
would be issued to-day, but - before
the board was ready to act the dis
covery, was made that gambling
was 3 prevalent in fraternity hou
ses that any attempt to stop the
I practice by forbidding the patro
1 nizing of down town resorts would
' be of little value. One student

we overeducate our children!
The great Ruasian in a letter to
a fritnd recently spoke at length on
the folly . of dramming -a child's
mind. He favored the suppression -of
the greaterpart of the lessons of
the -curriculum. In- their places,
as occupation for young minds, ha
suggests that children should . learn
to. serve themselves as much as pos-
Bible. -' - ' -

education,", ha iay s, "is : to make
the. child feel - that the things - he

made, but are the work of others."
He thinks it is more important
that children should learn ti make
their own beds, ; brush their .own
clothes and clean; their own shoes
than to know French or .history.
Mis ideal in this matter .is to
banish the lie from the education
of the child. - "VHow can we expect
a child to be sincere," 'he asks,
