In a letter from President Seerley of Teachers. College, in attendance at the annual .mid-winter gathering o[ the National Educational associa- tion at Richmond, Virginia, is con- tained a plea for more practical ed- ucation, made by a Massachusetts educator of national prominence. The stand taken by this educational man is that a large part of the pres- ent so-called education, is useless rubbish as far- as the average per- son ds concerned. He argues his contention ably. The letter follows: Richmond, Va. Feb. 25, 1914.

Science should be applied, not pure, it should .touch life not be awa> from reality, It should recognize that a pupil is to be a contributor to social welfare, not. an independent disinterested in public development and improvement.

The Phllo affirmative and negative teams were both victorious in the regular spring Inter-society triangu- lar debate held at the College so- ciety halls Saturday evening- The affirmative team received a 3 to 0 vote; the negative 2 to 1. The ques- tion was: "Resolved, that a progres- sive inheritance tax should be maintained by the federal govern- ment, constitutionality granted." The debates were hotly contested and showed hard work and careful preparation on the part of the speakers. Some of the contestants showed excellent iorm and reserve power, and thus some very promis- ing material for future -inter-col- legiate debates was developed. The inheritance tax in all its -features; its operation Iu various foreign coun- tries and In thirty-nine states of the union, was very ably presented, it gave tho audience some very concise ideas of its practical working. One remarkable fact in the debate was that the negative, conceded the de- sirability and practicability of the in- heritance tax, and based their argu- ments on the fact that an inheri- tance tax levied by the states was preferable to one levied by the fed- eral government. The work of the' -will then be permitted to attend Phllo negative team In support ot -school in their own vicinity, thus this point, was unusually strong, relieving the congestion at the Cen- tral building somewhat.

On March 9th, the voters of the Independent District of Cedar Falls will have an opportunity of voting on the proposition whether or not to authorize the expenditure of 000 in improvements in the operat- ing plant in this city. .For many years the facilities in Bast Cedar Falls have been inadequate. It is the wish, of the board to erect a building large enough to accommo- date the increase in population in that section of the city and to pro- vide for the growth sure to follow as a result of building the Iowa Co.'s new factory buildings across the river. Many cui.dreu who are now compelled to cross the river and tramp over to the Central building From Saturday's Daily. After several months or feeble health due to his more than eighty years of life, Grundy Anderson pass- ed away at six o'clock this morning at his home, 819 "West Fifth street. He was surrounded by most of the family and the end came peacefully. Mr. Anderson was born iu Mire, Norway, in 1834. He moved to this country in 1893, settling in Lyle, Minn., where he lived seven years. The following are the children by i-'roin Monday's Daily. The annual exium'tlon of the men's section of the physical training de- partment at the college, was given Saturday afternoon. la spite of tile had weather, quite a crowd was pres- ent and the program was one ot great Interest. The first year's class came on in two divisions. The one section did work on the horse ana staged a relay race which was ex- citing and called forth general ap- plause. The second division of tlie nrst year's class did work on the mats and played whip tag, a gauiu that nearly convulsed tue spectator, Tha large second-year class uiu some interesting work ou the "ele- phant." All of these exercises were under the direction of Coach Allan BerkstresBer. The preliminary pro- gram closed with a game of "three- which lasted lov lifteeii mu. utes aud afforded both players auu visitors a, great deal ot fun. The big feature of the afternoon was the work put on by the gym team under the directiou of R. F. Seymour. The five men, went through the schedule of stunts ex- actly aa they will be handled, at the state meet in Iowa City next Satur- day. They showed remarkable form on nil of the set work. The originals ou the Hying rings and mats, were somewhat ragged, due to the fact that the work had just been com- menced ou by them a day previous to the exhibit.

As -Is the lot of those In our line of work, jve have moved from time to time, and have made our home In cities both large and small In several states, but we feel perfectly safe In stating, that never have we found a city more pleasant to live in, nor one than can equal Cedar Falls In high moral tone and culture. Social hospitality and business courtesy seems to be the rule rather than the exception. We have had frequent occasion to feel this in our dealings with, profssionnl and business men of the city. Not only have we felt ourselves indebted to them, for .num- berless courtesies, but also to the faculties both the city schools i and the Teachers College. These in- structors have proven themselves ever willing and even anxious to ex- tend courtesies and assistance out- side of the- regular channels ot their duty. That the educational system ot the city is much above the ordin- ary, must be conceded by all who have had occasion to make their homes in other communities, i As a minister I could, not but notice the willingness of brother pastors to co- operate In, any undertaking requir- ing united effort. Few cities pan boast.of a Ministerial Union so en- thusiastically supported as is the local one. After six years of church work here, I find tUat among Prot- estant pastors only Dr. Fahs re- mains, of those who were in active church work when came to {he city. The many changes taking place, however, have only served to emphasize the fact that no man can take up a pastorate here, without becoming Imbued with the Cedar Falls spirit, the spirit of cp-opera- tivo effort for civic betterment. The spirit is contagious. It means that Cedar Falls haSxa bright future be- fore her. In leaving we carry with us only the pleasantest of memories.

That there are many people In this country going about Jn different lines of work who are victims of leprosy was the startling statement made by Miss Bertha Johnson, re- turned missionary from the lepet colonies of India, before the Twin City Ministerial association this morning. Miss Johnson has spent many years of work among this class of people and can readily detect a case ol disease. She states that from time to time in traveling about In this, as well as foreign countries, she comes in contact with people who, to the experienced eye, are plainly suffering from leprosy.
