Air. llerbsnian went on to �pcak of the value of the community in nation building, and he concluded hia address with a mosi mngnificcnt peroration on Great Britain ;uul the United States mid their part in the war. He spoke with great foiling and roused the big audit'iico to a event pitch of patriotic enthusiasm. Professor Wallace. A very tine address was delivered before a Chautauqua audience numbering about "SO yesterday afternoon hy ,F. Sherman YVnilaec. a western university professor who spoke on "The Salvation of Democracy." Kde.cation, *;iid Prof. Wallace, is the salvation of democracy. In his address Prof. Wallace took the opportunity to issue a grave warning to school boys against the evils of cigarette smoking. He declared tUat never since Harvard was founded had a cigarette smoker ever won a scholarship in that famous university, and very similar results bad been observed in other universities and colleges throughout the country. His own observations had resulted in his being able to pick out smokers out ot a new class after two weeks of study under him. Turning to the value of education ns the salvation of democracy. Prof. Wallace declared that in spite of Kaiser Willielm, democracy had come to stay and as ltberty is such a serious thing, people must know how to mi� themselves. He showed that the average uneducated man earns $-150 per annum, while the average educated man earns * 1,-OD. Figured in dollars and cents he showed that education was worth to a man $10 a day for every day he spends in school up to the end of the high school. And a man's chance of obtaining wealth is increased Gil times by a college education. But it isn't only in obtaining wealth and living in more comfortable surroundings that a college education is an aid. It fits men for leadership. The nation's leaders are almost all � highly educated men. CaveCully prepared statistics prove this. Prof. Wallace's oration was replete with trite eayings, one of the most outstanding of which was that "God ! never made but one David Lloyd George." Cardston.
