AN HINDU REVIEW.
Suggestions on Life in India by
M. C Sinha.
FIFTH AND LAST PAPER
. Ia every school and college
there ought lo be a systematic
correlation between different sub
jects and co-operation between
teachers, so that one branch of I
study might be made to help
and illustrate another branch.
For example, the process of forg
ing, brazing and soldering in the
sh ps may be( used to illustrate
the princip'es of physics and
chemistry. The application of
projection and intersection may
be made to illustrate plane and
solid geometry. The exercises
of the machine shop may be
made to illustrate the principles
of friction, heat, electricity, the
that the growing sentiment of
swadeshism and the idea of pat
ronizing one's own countrymen
will more than counteract the
evil effects of government hypno
tism, and the demands tor the
services of the national university
graduates will largely depend
upon the merits of the student
and the teaching imparted.
With the growth cf civilization
and industry the demand for
mining, agricultural, civil, me
chanical, electrical and chemical
engineers is increasing.
Still more recently each one of
these in actual practice has been
subdivided many times as a
necessity has arisen and as special
lines of research and experience
have been opened. Nothing
more forcible invites the youth,
who is blessed with a healthy
body and a clear intellect; noth
ing is more fascinating to the
student than the keen sense of
steam ensrine and compressed air.

the simple reason that the attend

why industrial training has not
been attractive to the youth is to
be accounted for by ihe faulty

is tv create enthusiasm and in

A large delegation went to Al
bany from this city Friday night
to attend the state inter-collegiate
oratorical'coatest. Between the
orations there were some very in
teresting musical numbers.
Evert L. Jones, of Albany Col
lege, was given first place. His
oration was entitled "The Tri
umph of Principle."
Paul V. Maris, of Pacific Col
lege at Newburg, was awarded
second place, his subject being
"The Patriot of the New Era.'
The third place fell to H. X.
Marcel, ot Willamette University,
Salem, whose oration was entit
led, "The Future Possibilities of
the Northwest. " The idea pre
vails that the general average
was unusually close between the
various orators. OAC received
sixth place on the program and
was represented by John Withy
combe, whose good work was
commended by all. .
The judges on delivery were
Professor L. B. Baldwin, of
Philomath; I. H. Amos, of Poit
land and Harrison G. Piatt, also
of Portland. The judges on
thought and composition were
Professor H. H. Herdman and
Rev. E. L. House, both ofPort-
posed and carried was prohibit

colleges and universities who

Another amendment prescribes
that in the future the program
shall be so arranged that the
speakers will appear in the ordei
of the rotation in colleges. Mc
Minnville will be the next place
of meeting for the oratorical con
test,?? The officers chosen for the
ensuing year are: Mr. Tilbury,

A modern architect must be both
an artist and an engineer. There
is nothing which an artist rqust
not know, and know well. He
must know thoroughly the nature
and limitation of his material s.
He must be able to apply math
ematical analysis to every detail
of his structure. His building
must be both stable and graceful.
This means that he must study
the laws of heat, light, electricity
and transmission of power. A
modern architect should be an
