money will be used, either for
building or for maintenance.
The new dormitory, which will
be erected near the present
Friendly Hall, will be three. sto
ries in height, with service base
ment. It will be constructed of
brick, and the style of architect
ure will harmonize with other
buildings on the campus. It will
be absolutely fireproof.
In the dormitory the students
will be housed in units of 28 men
each. These will be separate, and
while they will all connect with
a common room and dining quar
ters, they will not connect with
each other. A saving in hall
space is made possible by this
arrangement and in addition
greater privacy is gained.
Each group will be self-governing
and will constitute a social
unit. Membership in the groups
will be so arranged that it will
be agreeable to all. Social ac
tivities, such as dances and par
ties, will be carried on by units,
while all will unite in occasional
social events.
The completion of the hall will
make available accommodations

around Scotia's erstwhile gran

ays to Peggy Kgnnedy: "Poets,
Madam, of all mankind, feel most
forcibly the powers of beauty . . .
their feellhirs must be finer, and
their taste more delicate, than
most of the world" This eensi
tiveness and Dwer of penetration
he exhibits as he bends his imag
inative genius to sing the praises
of his country in terms of the
straightest. sturdiest, moral pa
triotism. Ills instinct and In
sight were sound, and his passion
for beauty was pure.
His insight into nature Is so
well known as scarcely to need
mention. He saw beauty in na
ture where others passed her by
without a glance. The scudding
clouds, the frosty light, the sym
metry of a silhouetted tree, the
leaves a-twitter like the tongues
of a thousand maidens, the piay
of sunlight,. on flowing waters, the
mist trailing over Scottish hills,
the snow on the river's bosom,

everover all these he threw a
veil of loveliness. The wind
soughing through the winter
woods filled him with wild and
mingled delight, and the tender
eye of a mountain daisy was like
the tlrought or a friend beloved,
and a wee fallen bird " set him
dreaming of the meaning of the
world and all the glory that is to
he. He does not philosophize
much about nature; he sees na

losopher so znaeh .as with the
playful happy glance of a little
child. He is quickly moved by
nature's natural charm; and as
quickly he moves from nature to
man ; the world without mirrors
for him the universe within:
It was his power to transform
the humble homely scenes of his
country and his kind that consti
tutes a good deal of his charm
and power as a poet. When Burns
published Jhe first edition of hiii
poemi at Kilmarnock, we read
that "old -and young, high and
low, grave and gay, learned and
ignorant, were all delighted, agi
tated, transported. Even plow
boys and maidservants would hare
gladly bestowed the wages they
earned most hardly; and which
they needed to purchase necessary
clothing, if they might procure

this? We shall find It, f feel sure
NIGHT. In walks the cotter, a
humble man returning after his
toil to his bumble borne; he Is
(egrimed from top to toe. An al
together unimpressive sight! His
children run to meet him, the
mother and wife stands to greet
him. ,. Her. face bears the marks
of toil and struggle, even as does
th children's attire. The even
ing meal is brought on, and it
seems bare and poor. A rushlight
lacquers and burnishes the bare
place to brightness; but It is not
the only brightness there is the
childish glee, the playful mirth of
the family, their profound con
tent; and to this scene add the
gathering of friends who later
troop in for fellowship. What a
picture it is of the deep piety of
the human heart, the loveliness of
family life, the glory of friend
ship, and the grandeur of Scottish
life! Seen scores of times by
Burns the scene has affected him
30 deeply as to inspire him with
the wonder of our Human world.
Princes and lords are but the
breath of kings,
An honest man's the noblest
work of Clod.
Think you not tKit every poor
laboring man stood Inches higher
when he read the transporting
and transfiguring words that
Burns sang?

A margins, duke, and a' that;
But an honest man's aboon his

Sincerity That Awakens Wonder
Still further. Burns )id THE
WONDER. Now sincerity Is dif
ficult to attain, either In one's
self or in another. Even in our
own blatant days, it is sometimes
accounted bad taste to say what
you really think. There are bind
ing and restraining and necessary
influences . of our admirable
conventions, and the reticenc
es they Impose upon us by
our queer civilization, that
must be observed. At all costs
the CONVENANCES must be ob
served! So when a man stands
in our midst who is frankness
itself, we generally misconceive
him, miss his measure. "Burns,"
says a great writer, "was very
like another man In what he had
to tell, and differed from other
men only because he told it." One
cannot read Burns' poetry with
out feeling the depth of his sin
cerity. He sings what he feels
sings all that he feels." It Is a
great relief (at least so it appears
to me) to turn from the "Remnls
cences" and "Autobiographies"
that quite clearly have been writ
ten for ulterior motives and pur
poses, and the novels that smell of
the yellow peril, and the poetry
that masks Itself, to the pellucid
poetry of Robert Burns. I shall
not agree with all the Scottish
bard mav slnr. but I may thank
him for singing so sincerely. Hisinau inquirer
