The Hindu Student Writes
. G. Mukerji, a Hindu student
who for the past year or more at
tended OAC, recently issued a
circular having reference more
particularly to this college than
any other. It is intended as a
guide lor young men of his own
country who may desire to come
to the United States for an edu
cation. The writer during his
attendance at OAC proved him
self a bright and sincere student
and in his circular he pays high
triDute to his professors, fellow
students and citizens in general.
Following are excerpts from his
In the United States an edu
cational institution means an
academy where every kind of ed
ucation is imparted with special
reference to certain practical
branches or professions. A uni
versity or college means a nucleus
of different collegessuch as col
leges of law, of literature, poli
tics and economics.'-
A college of engineering con
sists of civil, mechanical elec
trical, mining and chemical en
gineering; a college of agricul
ture includes botany, zoology,
bacteriology, physics, chemistry,
irrigation, itock breeding, etc.
A college of household science
teaches sanitary science, cooking,
sewing and music.
Applied chemistry and applied
mechanics are the principal things
for all technical industries, and
for all these elaborate and expen
sive labratories and "workshops
are the main features of the col
leges where the boys get their in
' struction. More attention is paid
in increasing the practical ability
ot tne students. "Iearn to do
by doing, and learn to see bv see-
mg- is ine practical motto.
The department of chemical
engineering, or applied chemis
try, has the highest range of in
dustries, as by it . we practically
learn all the industries, such as
the manufacture of glass, porce
lain,' cement, rubber, dyeing,
electroplating, and a complete
uuic in tais insures success in
any chemical or mechanical man
ufacturing. Personal and friendly relations
are always maintained between
the professors and the boys. Our
personal experience has shown
that the American teachers are
highly cosmopolitan in their man
ner and habits. We enjoy equal
privileges with the other students
in this country. In fact, the
American teachers are the Hncan
nonized saints of the modern ae.
In general all state universities
are , free. Each state has its own
university, high schools and poly
technic colleges. The university
is located on the same ground in
different buildings, producing an
ennobling and grand influence on
the mind and character. Sani-N
tary rules are enforced around the
student town, and no intoxicating
liquors are allowed to be sold
near the place.
Since some parents do not like
to send their sons to foreign coun
tries, on the question of undesir
able foods, etc., we suggest that
if some number of students form
themselves into a nucleus and
come over here, every arrange
ment for our style of living can
be arranged suiting every strict
rule of our country. In this
country all kinds of
foods are abundant. There are
many Americans who live on
pure vegetable diet;, further, an
average American table contains
many vegetables. . Milk and but
ter are quite cheap and abundant
In this arrangement, all the boys
live satisfactory, at a very cheap
rate, and any one , seeking self--snpport
can be given the charge
of cooking, etc., so that one or
two boys can earn their educa
tion as well as others. If our
youths or the parents can make
this arrangement, they will open
grm dd of possibilities. It
is a great mistake to think that
every one coming over to this
country have to take meat, etc.
There are hundreds of Chinese and
Japanese students living in this
way, which is undoubtedly verv
economical and convenient; and
such arrangements must give
other less able young men a
chance to be self-supporting by
thus helping their countrvmen.
Now I ask those of my friends
who have been asking for work
nere, to volunteer their services
right in India, and find out how
many paying students they can
secure willing to come here for
education, and to live in such
economical way. I earnestly hope
some friend will work out this
plan, and if any one arrives in
this country I am ready at any
moment to render any possible
help. Boys coming through Ja
pan will be given letters nfinfrn.
duction to our friends.
It at least twelve boys give me
their positive assurance with r?.
liable authority to some editor, or

every convenience of food, edu
cation, etc. I can also undertake.

"ine whole article from be

falsehoods. Mr. Keadv save that
he did not consult with a mem
bember of the board

which is very improbable. - Fur
thermore, I have unimpeachable
evidence that vMr. Keady used
all the persuasive eloquence at

from Portland to Corvallis in h.
halt of the resolution.
uThe statements made bv TVTr
Keady in his interview . relative
to ine neglect of inv wort at tne
college and the use of my office
for the promotion of mv nersnnoi
interests are absolutely false. No
one knows better 'than ivr-
Keady the falsity of these state
ments, because this matter was
thoroughly discussed at the- rp.
cent board meeting.
Among other fabrications
Mr. Keady states that T nave
been running over,the state to at
tend various meetings for ulterior
purposes, and that I ha
lected my classes, and at times
have turned them over to the
foreman of the farm, which is un-i
qualifiedly false. It is true I have
been away a good deal attending
farmers' institates and other ag
ricultural conventions, hllfnn ac-
sure Mr. Keady that these meet
ings have beer, kept upon a high
er plan than he is capable of ap
preciating, and h;ve not been
subservient to the selfish ambi
tion of any individual. These
iustitutes are usually held at a
reason when I have no class work.
In case I am called away when I
have classes the' work is prear
ranged and my associate profess
or, and not the foiemau of the
ferm, assumes charge. In fact,
I challenge' any person to show
where I have neglected a single
college or experimental station
"For answer to the.insinuation
of my incompetenev to conduct
the affairs of the station I respect
fully refer you to the last three
annual reports ot Dr. A. C. True,
director of United States experi

trict of Columbia. )
"Were such charges as those of
Mr. Keady made against me by
the president -of the college, or
by any menber of. the beard,
whose entire course during his
regency had not been largely dic
tated by political or personal mo
tives, I should feel that they were
worthy of consideration at my
hands. Coming from the-, source
they do I deem them and shall
so consider anything further1 from
the same source, unworthy of fur
