"Education depends on the intelligence one has in using what he
knows and what he doesn't know
when coming into an emergency, and
the aim of the University Is to develop intelligence In students," said A.
E. Winship, of Boston, editor of the
Journal of Education, speaking to tTie
student body in chapel last Thursday
morning on the subject, "The Aim of
"Intelligence is the horse power of
your machine. It is the thing which
you have at your command when you
need it." The function of the University is to tell people where to go to
get information that is reliable. No

most authentic information

The secret of success consists In
doing the right thing at the right time,
the speaker said. To know how to do
this one must have Intelligence. One
of the principal things that a college
teaches Is to know what to do at the
right time. One comes against

that is important. The only reason
that people did not have the same
Inventions and comforts in 1817 that

on their grandfathers instead of think

Ancient World occupied their time instead of studying some method to

the dignity of a scholar. They were

The speaker said that he was impressed with the fact that the men
who fire the cannon on battleships
are twenty feet oolow tho deck and
never see the target at which they
are aiming. They are directed in their
firing hy two men who are In the rigging and who, hy means of electrical
appliances, tell them where to put
tho cannon In vertical and in horizontal. Their work consists in getting the swell of the sea and directing
the firing of the cannon when the ship
gets on tho level.
The function of the faculty Is analogous to the duty of the men in the
rigging. They tell how to get the
swell of time. Every one must aim,
OFFER IS ACCEPTED

That Corps Is
The War Department's acceptance
of the University's offer to establish
a reserve officers' training corps at
the University of Kentucky was received last week by President Henry
S. Barker from Adjutant-GenerThe following telegram was
received from the War Department:
"Bulletin issued establishes infantry

At present it is uncertain when the
military course will be instituted at
the University. When it was decided
by the authorities to establish the
course, it was thot it would go Into
effect In September, at the beginning
of the next school year, but Captain
John C. Fairfax, commandant at the
University, in an Interview said that
receipt of further Instructions from
Washington may result in its establishment sooner.

For discipline the commandant decided to devote the first lessons to
drilling, "just like the boys do." Those
who camo for a lark soon settled down
to real work as the commandant and

simple movements of "About face!
and "Halt, one, two!" Visions of
squad drill inflicted by the Dean on
Saturday afternoons flitted thru the
brains of the frivolous ones, but their
giggles changed to anxious looks at
the commandant, who refused to crack
a smile. For an hour and a half they
worked, and just as they were beginning to feel like real soldiers they
heard the magic sound, 'Fall out."
