Blindman Leads Blind
To Better Education
CHICAGO, Mar. 1. A teacher
whose career was, suddenly Inter
rupted by blindness is now-directing
what is believed to be among
the first free -correspondence
schools for, the adult blind. He
is William A. Hadley, of Winnet
ka. a suburb. The school is main
tained by. Mr. Hadley's friends at
no expense to the students. .
"If -1 had, to choose between
having my sight back and my
work.'; he remarked to one 6f his
friends, "1 -.would , . choose - my
work...'.. ? -i ;'; -"'-';; " - v
Mr. Hadlen was Jong active In
education in Chicago. For five
years he sat in darkness and
thought, his mind revolving about
statistics reporting ; that 80 per
cent of the blind become sightless
after maturity. : There were, he
understood, no educational facili
ties meeting their needs. ;
- A three-line advertisement of
fering to teach,
on a Braille " typewriter, .any
course that might be desired by
a blind person, brought an aval
anche of requests. Friends ral
lied to organize the Hadley Cor
respondence School for the Blind.
It now has students "in India and
China:" : -j -r '. ; i !
.: "When the light went out of
Mr. Hadley's eyes, wrote one of
them '"the- windows of heaven
were opened for the rest of us."
-LONDON. Mar. 1. Recent pro
posals' to permit automobiles to
pass through the London streets
at - greater speed than at present
has brought about organization of

I to abolish "that. impertinent factor
of tpublic safety, the speed limit

Those Who Live in Gliass Houses
Here Is a Man, When He Builds His Very Own Home, Proposes 'to
Use Glass in Many Once Unusual Places
Some one said that those who
live In glass honses should not
throw atones. ' He might have ad
ded that they would not want; to
; provided there were a few dra
peries and curtains to create pri
vacy on occasion.
Modern folk 'often do live in
glass bouseav or what amount to
the same thing. ! They find the
custom 'good for their health and
spirits, ; and,-, consequently, their
morals. (The adage arose, I be
lieve, over a question of. morals.)
Living In glass houses is pleas
urable, too. It permits an intro
duction of. beauty and joyousness
to the 1 home that, would .be less
pronounced otherwise.. , ,. , '.
tYou may be asked where these
glass houses are-to be found. The
answer is: .Everywhere that mod

Educational Exposition:
to Campus at Corvallis
; The Oregon' Agricultural Col
lege's second annual Educational
Exposition, was held on the cam
pus at Corvallis last week.
The exposition was conducted
for the benefit . of high school stu
aents and was so planned, as to
show' them the value of higher ed
ucation, instruct them in the best
ways of obtaining It, and help
each one decide for what college
course and for what vocation' he
is best : fitted. To accomplish
these results, the institution jar
ranged fo ra number of addresses,
conferences, and "private Inter
views, and also placed on" exhibi
tion work from all the" depart
ments and activities of the col
lege. - , . " i ; .j ' ; ' -: T
Attending the exposition, were
approximately 800 , student dele
gates representing 140 high
schools in all parts of the state.
There were also numerous faculty -
delegates, and many students 'at
tended unofficially. : . 1
'I The delegates who represented
Salem High school were" Helen
Campbell, Helen Marcus, Mildred
Gilbert, Esther Burch," Mary Cup
per, Alvin Burton, Avery Thomp
son, : Vernon Perry, John Miato,
and , Marion Bowman.' Faculty
representatives were . Miss Beryl
Holt, Miss Hazel Browne, and Miss
Ola LaMoine Clark. ' ,
. :The exposition opened In the
evening of Friday, Feb. ' 2Qth,
when the exhibits were placed on
display. On Saturday morning a
general assembly of all delegates
was addressed by Dr. Stanley Coul
ter, Dean of Men at Purdue Uni
versity,' and chief speaker of the
exposition! He spoke on "prepar
ation and- service" and said . that
"preparation" . and "service are
the two supermen words in, life.
He mentioned the important, place
held by duty. The highest duty,
he said, is to live the best life pos
sible." Dr. Coulter urged , that
every student examine himself,
find out what - he could ; do and
could learn to do, and then train
himself accordingly. He stated
that purpose and will are essen
tial to a successful life.- ...'. ,

Not Desire to
tects and home-builders have
learned the - virtues of plenty of
windows in the walls of a house,
and where, interior decorators
have learned the merits of mirror
ed ''rooms. : Glass,' plate glass for
preference, is as much .the. mark
of - the present building age as
stone was of the Stone Age, gold
of the Gold Age. and glaciers of
the Glacial Age. This is, in many
ways, a Glass Age. .
ll U not idle to point this out
and to dwell on it. for, in spite of
the attention' given to windows
and mirrors by the discriminating,
there are still those who think ot
built-in bookcases, 1 commodious
closets, ice-boxes with an exterior
door, and stationery wash-tubs, to
the temporary exclusion of such
mere commonplaces , , (so - they
think . them)-, as windows and

Dr. Coulter that every student ask
himself the following , questions

Corvallis churches - and visitors
was addressed by Dean Coulter; :
On . Monday morning visitors
were.' permitted Interviews with

deans.'j Further .conferences, in
charge of; Dr. Coulter and Miss
Anne- Smith, were held for dele
gates. : Questions were discussed
relating to college life.-. Studying,
use of money, nse of; time and ef
forts, choice of companions, rela
tions to faculty, and maintenance
of health were '.among the toplce
considered. ' The 'advantages of
fraternities were compared at the
boys conference on Monday.--'' 4-"
".'The entire Oregon Agricultural
College was on display during the
exposition, each school and depart
ment showing an interesting 'and
instructive exhibit of the work
done and equipment used. The
exhibits and demonstrations were
very creditable and gave evidence
of much hard work on the part of
professors and students. ' ' ..
- Among these the electrical & en
glneering exhibit was perhaps th
most spectacular.; Some of the
electrical features "were phenom
ena of high, tension currents, a
speaking ace. a vacuum tape or
gan, electroplating,' and a machine
apparently run by perpetual mo
tion." '-', " ! '-i

think first of all of these supposed
commonplaces, the windows. -
- The windows in my house will
be many, and all of polished plate
glass. This- will be because I have
found out for myself that sunlight
makes me' cheerful and contrib
utes to my sense of well-being.
Scientists have confirmed my im
pression by proving hat sunlight
kills germs, diminishes fatigue,
and contributes to the restfulness
and wholesomeness of a building
into .which, it. ia, permitted . to
flood; whether the building be
home or factory building. Fac
tory builders have been aware of
this for some time, so that many
modern factories Beem made all of
glass. . 7 - - , );,:
I shall choose plate glass for my
many windows ' because it is tho
most perfect glass there Is. Its tex
ture is true and transmits light
rays without distortion. You can
look through it as easily as thru
the open air, and sunlight comes
in Just as directly, with no refrac
tion and a minimum of glare.
Having provided as much glass
as possible for the outside walla
of the house I shall study each
room with the' view of finding how
plate glass, mirrors . can . best be
used in It; for mirrors duplicate
and extend the benefits of win
dows. They reflect sunlight and
good views and add the cheapest
sort of. pictures to your walls;
winter scenes for winter time and
spring scenes for -spring.
Nor when these matters are
attended to will I be satisfied that
I have used glass to the fullest
useful ; extent.. . There - are still
shelves, table coverings, and pos
sibly some -doors- in -which it will
be of value. I shall use 1t in all
these places. - The idea" of living
in a glass house entrances me,
just as it interested the old adage
maker,' and as it seems to Interest

district forester under which an
extension of time would be grant
ed to Fred Herrick for the begin
ning of logging operations under
his timber sale contract on the
Malheur National forest, has just
been received by District Forester
C. M. Granger. '
. The contract specified that cut
ting would begin on private or na
tional forest timber by April 1,
1925, and that in any event cut
ting on national forest timber
would begin by October 1, 1925.
Mr. Herrick. applied for an exten
sion on these dates because of dif
ficulties encountered in the con
struction of the railroad from
Crane to Burns and from Burns to
Seneca. The forest service will
grant an extension of one year in
the time for the beginning of cut
ting on national forest timber un
til October 1, 1926, according to
Mr. Granger.
