'liallis as taken by tbo students
are not always beneficial." Miid Dr.
Stewart. "Sometimes they do more
barm than good. After violent exer
cise on the field, in the gymnasium,
or even after a brisk walk, a student
may have so stimulated his physique
as to have brought it to the point of
exhaustion. If be takes a hot bath
after it, the effect is further exhaust
ing, as it stimulates him still more.
The proper temperature for a bath
after such exercise is merely tepiJ,
about the sttme as the blood in the
body, HS decrees. Such a bath has
the effect of noothin;? and reducing
liressure on the spinal column and
the brain, acting as a generally rest
'"Shower and plunge baths should
tie taken with care. A plunge in wa
ter 70 to 75 degrees acts as a bracing
tonic to a robust person. The action
of water under 70 degrees is to stim
ulate heart sir Lion. If taken sudden
ly it has a tendency to shock the
nervous system, and therefore a per
son who is not robust should never
take a cold bath unless under doc
tor's advice. A tepid bath, which is
soothing rather than stimulating,
is good for all sexes and ages. The
athletes who have become bruised
and sore take a warm bath, 95 to
105 degrees, which has a soothing
tendency. Kveryone should take a
bath of some sort every morning, if
it is only a rub-down with a wet
towel,' with a brisk rub afterward
to stimulate circulation."
Miss Thayer said, speaking of
physical condition in the home and
"No matter how much you develop
your mind, you will never attain to
our highest educational efficiency un
less you have the health to use it.
1 have noticed many students' houses
in which the windows were not open.
"We were meant originally to live out
of doors. Hvery student and mem
ber of the faculty should have all
the ventilation possible in class
rooms and at home. When possible
you should sleep out of doors, or
make your rooms as open as you can
to the fresh air.
"The subject of diet is also impor
tant. Fried foods and plenty to do
make muscle, strength and good dis
positions. Good plain, substantial
and wholesome food is what you
need. Almost no student, or teacher
for that matter, eats as slowly as he
should. A great many headaches
and other ailments come from eating
loo fast and, failing to chew the food
properly. I will speak to the girls
later on hygienic and sensible cloth
ing. The boys, who have their fine,
sensible military uniforms, do not
need such advice."
"There is a living cause for almost
all diseases, popularly known as
germs," said Professor Ileckwith.
"The normal human being in the
pink of condition should be free from
these living causes of disease. For
tunately we have in the body certain
organisms which tend to kill orf the
germs, but they are only good to a
certain point, and when the number
of germs becomes too great these
natural safeguards are broken down
and we suffer from disease. There
are four paths through which germs
enter the body, by the mouth, by the
nose, by abrasions or wounds giving
entry through the skin, and by way
of the reproductive organs. Among
the diseases entering through the
mouth are typhoid, dysentery, ton
sil it is, tuberculosis, scarlet fever and
diphtheria. They must have some
method of transportation, through
the water, other drinks, as milk, or
food. The water supply of Corvallis
is one of the purest I have ever had
to deal with, but 60 per cent ot the
wells about the city are bad, so I
would advise that you make sure you
are drinking city water, not well wa
ter, hook into the kitchen where
your food is being cooked and see
that there are not germ-distributing
flies there. Know that the milk you
drink is not from dirty or diseased
owg. And, above all, live clean,
morally straight lives if you would
not be one of the 10 per cent In the
United States who. are Infected with
venereal diseases, grouped under the
general name of the black plague."

Some Simple, Practical Keasoiis
AsaiusC Woman' Suffrage.
1. Decause women are the stand
ard bearers of the woild. To lower
the standard of the mothers wiil low
er the standard of the race. It is
elevation we want. We do not want
to hear it said again by the men of
our land, as has beta said in the
equal suffrage Mates, "Women, own
our superiors, now our equals."
2. Women is built, physically, for
the propagation of the race, and
mentally for the rearing of the race.
She is not built for heavy labor,
neither is she trained for it. Wom
an is maile on lines of beauty, love
:.nJ tenderness; man on lines of
strength. There is an essential and
intended difference between the
3. Sex is the pivot on which the
world turns the pivotal point in
suffrage. An effeminate man' excites
our pity and sport; a masculine
woman excites our disgust. "Elimi
nation of sex" is not possible, as
some suffragists claim. If it could
be done, polities would certainly not
be bettered by woman's vote.
4. We do not want our country
to be governed by any organization,
church, or political party.
5. In some suffrage state a foreign-born
woman becomes a duly
qualified voter by the naturalization
of her husband, thus throwing two
undesirable votes on the country at
once. They usually vote as the su
perintendent, manager, etc., of the
railroad, mining or manufacturing
corporation for which their husband
works, or the priest of their parish
tells them they , must; these com
mands being often enforced by mon
ey, by threats of violence, or spirit
ual damnation, or by threats of hus
band or sons losing their jobs.
fi. "New" women and rich, ambi
tious women vote for those who fa
vor their pet theories. Some vote
on account of personal reasons,
grudges, etc. A woman seldom
bothers about special qualifications
for an office. Vicious women vote
as the "dominant boss," aided by the
police, or as the police, acting on
their own account, compel them to
7. "Man's work is from sun to
sun; woman's work is never done."
Women will now tell you that they
have not time for their present du
ties, so why should they be burdened
with more work? The majority of
women do not want the ballot and
will not avail themselves of the priv
ilege and duty of voting.
8. No large number of women
have attained to any great degree of
prominence in any of the professions
or in writing; . neither in deeds of
valor; nor any great patents; al
though they could have done so had
they the ability. The opportunity
has not been lacking. Women gener
ally have not shown the ability to
v,ope with men.
9. Our laws and progress now are
as good or better than those of the
equal suffrage states, Colorado, etc.
10. Women are sentimental and
emotional, not logical, simply posi
tive, usually jumping at conclusions;
letting sentiment overcome sense and
judgment. A woman acts through
sympathy and intuition; man
through thought and reason. She
annot view a subject from a point
of law, but turns the law or the
question as she thinks it ought to
apply. She is too sensitive. If you
differ with her she considers it per
sonal and takes affront, using offen
sive personalities and questioning
the right of any one to disagree with
her, which shows what means will be
used if given the ballot.
11. Women are now at the bot
tom of every reform, as well as de
form the world experiences. All re
forms are begun before the cradle
and women are their Inceptors. Pre
natal culture is a lifelong study, and
Ihe only thing that will reform the
12. Our grandmothers raised
good men to make good laws for us,
without the ballot.- Women can now
do the same, if she will.
13. Women have aspired to, and
can now hold almost every office and
position that she could should equal
14. The ballot to women does not
mean to wise and good women alone,
or we might all favor it, but to the
wivt's, daughters and sweethearts of
every man now a voter, illiterate, in
temperate, disreputable, vicious, for
eign, etc., etc.
15. If the ballot in men's hands
fortified by the unions, cannot regu
late men's work and wages, how can
it help the women in that way?
Wages are governed by the law of
supply and demand, by trade condi
tions, etc. A working woman will
always be paid according to her abil
ity, health, etc., being considered;
also by the fact that her working
years are uncertain and limited
16. The school and children ques
tions are being agitated by good
women In all the states, both suf
frage and non-suffrage, and the best
suggestions are already accepted in
many of them; before many years all

17. While American women have
progressed wonderfully, in a way,
in the past few years, and the world,
in many ways, is bettered by that
progress; still, are the children, gen
erally, any .better for it? Who ever
heard of "sweat shops" or the need
of "child labor laws" in the days of
our good old grandmothers? Tbey
did not throw their half-worn gar
ments in the ragbag because it was
"cheaper to buy new ones;" neither
did they refuse to make new ones
because it was "cheaper to buy them
ready made." The women have the
right now to "down" those same
"sweat shops' they decry; all the
right they will ever use to that end.
They propagate and maintain .them
by buying the jheap clothing made
therein, instead of making them, or
paying a good round sum ior having
them made. The merchant (barges
for goods according to what he mus'.
pay the manufacturer; the manufac
turer charges for them according to
what it costs him to have them made.
When women make- their own
clothes, or buy only high-priced ones,
there will be no need of "sweat
shops." Men generally pay as they
18. Women are emotional and
thus are not fitted for jury duty;
and because of lack of strength she
is not capable of policeman's work.
Some say that she need not take the
active part, but authority to make
laws without ability to enforce them
is a menace to the country, and our
basic principle of government would
be shattered thereby. ' "
19. While there are many more
reasons against equal suffrage, this
last embodies all that might be said:
"Woman, in her office (now),
holds the key of the soul. She it
is who stamps the coin of character,
and makes the being, who would be
a savage but for her gentle care, a
