The members of its staff have received kind consideration from practically every member of the faculty from the administrative forces and from the students. For this cooperation and assistance it desires to offer its sincere thanks. Whatever credit May be due for the Sontner session of the student should be accorded the members of the re Portial Force and the assisting editorial staff whose efforts have been unfailing and untiring. H. B. Gray. Knew and few stopped to Ponder the question. There was much to be done when the final edition of the summer student went to press in 1918 no one it is Safe to say had an idea that the War would close so soon. This much is indicated in the excerpt from the editorial quoted above. But the end did come. The s. A. T. C7"3isbanded in time for Christmas and the men of the service started to trickle Back to their Alma mater. And they have continued to return in surprisingly Large numbers. The effects of wars Are not to be counted in Days or weeks but in months and years. On Indiana though the University was transformed overnight almost to something near its old basis the effects persisted. The adjustment process has been with us since. But it has been decreasing steadily. Today the effects of War have almost disappeared. So it is that Indiana will open her fall term on practically the old footing. Hundreds of returned soldiers and sailors will come Back. The indications Point to the largest enrolment in the history of the institution. Courses have been widened and extended and facilities have been extended to meet the new demands. The storm of War has passed. All is Well with Indiana again. Before our University in the next year and the years to come lies an unmarred path upward. It is Gratifying therefor that the student in this Issue is enabled to Tell of some of the things which Mark the beginning of Indiana s new Era. That after All is sufficient compensation for whatever efforts the staff of the student has expended this summer. L u. Re Siimes old time activities during present summer session directors and Campus organizations have a de this year very profitable and pleasant for students a reception dancing classes and excursions. After the storm it is customary in the Issue of the student in a semester to say something to this effect Quot with this Issue the Indiana daily student suspends publication for the present term. And that after All tells the Story. But it seems that the close of the present summer session Means something More than the end of a term ordinarily Means. We were interested a few Days ago to read the final summer session edition of 1918. To quote Quot the slopes of the Valley of the avre have been carried and the allies have reached the plateau beyond. They Are Ipa King further Progress and overcoming every obstacle along the line everywhere. And another Quot the United states is calling for Twenty five thousand Young women Between the Ages of Nineteen and thirty five to join the United states Stu publicity for Indiana. Indianapolis Star. It has been suggested that not Only would it be advisable for cities to have publicity agents but that it would be equally advantageous for Indiana to have a publicity expert. At first there might seem to be some difficulties in the Way of such a plan and perhaps some might urge that there is no need for an organized publicity on the part of any one of our or cat states. However something May be said for the suggestion. We have come to recognize the place of legitimate publicity in modern life. We have 11 been made to feel that one of the outstanding accomplishments of the War was the Success of extensive publicity. Millions of dollars were spent by the government and its various agencies to promote the Loans and drives for Selling Bonds raising Money and dispersing the necessary information. It is certain that with times of peace we shall not fall Back into a haphazard method of reaching the Public in any great co operative Enterprise. There will be Many opportunities to go before the people with All kinds of appeals such As campaigns for the dissemination of knowledge about diseases to Man Domestic animals and crops campaigns for better Rural conditions and for wiping out illiteracy. But there is another Side to this matter. Few of our citizens realize the wonderful variety of our state in Indiana University has blossomed out this summer in All her Ante Bellum splendor. The directors of the summer session the y. M. C. A., the y. W. C. A., the woman s league indeed All the University organizations a e conspired to make this summer brimful of pleasure for the students. The reception for the faculty and students started the social Ball and it has rolled on through dances hikes parties and picnics to the sad final examinations. Will anyone forget those Friday evening dancing classes when or. Mercury Rose above summer heat in a vain attempt to discourage the persistent beginner the Quot Campus movies have kept the film fan from becoming lonesome. The thursday evening concerts by the faculty of the music department have delighted the music lovers. Under the direction of professor Fulton and professor Moffat saturday excursions have been made to the Beauty spots near Bloomington. The two trips to or. Steele s studio were treats by the y. W. Their Hare and hound hike and Hay ride and the fourth of july breakfast the festival of games and Many Friendship parties under the auspices of the woman s league have initiated the summer girls into the real spirit of Indiana life and Indiana fun. All these get together affairs have helped students to become acquainted. But i. U. Students can have fun in crowds in groups or by twos and threes. Picture taking is one of the popular sports less strenuous than Tennis and cooler than Golf. At no time is the Well House Safe from the chronic Sodaker and his accordian plaited camera. In spite of the dry Law and the War tax students Are As hungry and thirsty As Ever and the . Candy stand the Book Nook and the greeks have enjoyed their usual popularity. The weekly meetings of the toastmasters club in the cafeteria have Given Many embryo speakers a Chance to Start on a Brilliant career. Extensive dating has been hindered somewhat by the shortage of men. The four Hundred however have done their duty nobly and the excess Giris have purified suffragettes. The summer has been a Happy one with lots of Good times sandwiched in Between work. Bring us your films ii for developing and printing satisfaction guaranteed Wiles drug co.

No one knows for certain where he May be yet wherever that May be True loyalty to the government of the United states will be uppermost in the minds of the War was then still on. Thousands of Brave americans were still falling in the trenches of France. In As the Beautiful Hills Woodlands Rivers and lakes the opportunities Foi business enterprises As Well As the advantages Foi comfortable and Happy Home life All these features would be a never ending inspiration to any one who would wish to present truthfully and vividly the facts about our state. Thiis would have a practical value which could scarcely be imagined. There is yet another Side. An important element in All legitimate advertising is. The psychological effect upon the advertiser. Recently a most successful manufacturer employing thousands of men asserted that he could afford to pay Many thousands in advertising because of the effect which would be produced upon the people who worked for him when they read in the pages of the daily papers and the great weeklies statements As to the Quality of the articles which they were helping to make. It in this same Way upon the Pride Diana University men had then Given he people of Indiana if we w their lives in the service and More confronted now and then with the facts were to follow before the Hun tide had our varied life within our Borders. And if by any such desire it would finally been turned Back. Here at Indiana the school was preparing for the coming of hundreds of men in uniform for the transformation from a University to a combination of a University and a military Camp. No one knew How Long this state of affairs was to last. No one be possible to create an atmosphere of greater Contentment there would be less room for the omnipresent Quot Knocker Quot who is always seeing something so much More wonderful just beyond the state line.

Ties Are from the various Indian reservations in the United states. Growing at the Side of some stalks which Are approximately eleven feet High is a variety not Over two feet tall. Probably the tallest com in the Patch is some he received from Peru South America which is the second generation of the Plant. He said this Plant did not do Well the first year but has now adjusted itself to the difference in climatic conditions. Freak varieties. Among the Quot Freak Quot vanities Are one with striped Blades one with Tassel and Silks growing together one with husks on the grains and another which produces an ear with White grains except on the Point of the ear where they Are red. This latter variety was secured from an Indian reservation and the indians Call it the Quot sacred however when or. Weatherwax received the seed the ear had a red tip and he has since produced the one with a red tip. In one plot or. Weatherwax has growing what is claimed to be the earliest variety in existence. In this locality it will mature in two months after planting and in some sections much earlier. It was interesting to note that ten grains of one variety would weigh As much As a whole ear of another. Pollination important. A Large part of the work is that of pollination. Sacks Jire placed Over the Tassel and the Silks and then pollen is taken from the sack Over the Tassel and sprinkled Over the Silks. In this Way the different varieties Are kept from crossing. Inbred Corn is not As Vig Rousas Normal com and is More susceptible to disease. Wild Corn has never been found and or. Weatherwax is endeavouring to build up in theory the nature of wild Corn. When Corn was discovered in the hands of the indians they were having very Good results with. It. They had several different varieties and since then these have been crossed until now we have a Corn which has All the Best qualities of these but is still botanically the same. Every plot of Corn in this Patch is numbered and these numbers correspond to numbers in a Book. Or. Weatherwax has published fifteen local color in american literature Indianapolis Star. The recent death of John Fox has inspired the new York evening Post an interesting editorial on the subject of Quot local any Survey of literature reveals the presence of the two Tserpes of writers those whose work seems to reach beyond the time or country in which the authors lived and those with an Appeal essentially 1 local. It does not always follow that the former is the More lasting in popularity and influence or that the lat Ter is More circumscribed by the limits of language or topographical lines. As an example Robert bums will occur to one As one of the most popular writers. Here is a poet who was certainly full of Quot local color Quot but perhaps t would be difficult today to name a writer in English literature who has suffered As Little diminution of popularity As the on. If we turn to our own country we find that the glory of our literary achievement has been due rather to to those who have written of the sections of America or the particular types that they knew Best. A Host of names will occur to the person with even a superficial knowledge of the literary history of our country Bret Harte for the far West in the Al Dorado Days Mark Twain and Hamlin Garland for the Mississippi Region George Egbert Craddock for Tennessee James Lane Allen for Kentucky geor w. Cable for Louisiana. John Fox for the Mountain people of the South Thomas Nelson Page for Virginia Joel Chandler Harris for the negro Folk especially of Georgia Eggleston Riley Nicholson and Tarkington for Indiana Hawthorne Mary e. Wilkins Freeman Sarah ome jew Ette Ruth m6enery Stuart and Many others for new England. In a Large Way Howells stands apart for his permanent contributions of american types in the Middle West and new England. Without a single one of these names our literature of the last fifty years would be immensely less Rich. We do not have to contend that All of these interesting Delineator of american life Are masters of the Art. It is enough if they have shown life in its More attractive garb and have helped Only a Little bit to bring cheer and encouragement to daily living. And this is their great achievement. They have displayed for us who Are less fortunate and less capable of finding interests in tie lowly Folk the Romance and reality of people who make up a varied world.

So it is our Hope that with the passing of the old Era there will come other writers who will love the Folk and like to write about it. Conditions of our life have greatly changed and will doubtless change much More but there will be always a residue that will not change. There must remain after this chaotic present a simplicity of Contentment and an abiding Faith.
