McVEY IS ABSENT ON BELGIAN DESCRIBES "BONDS OR BONDAGE" KULTUR OF GERMANY IIP YOUR BOYS" The rogular meeting of the Horace Mann Literary Society was held Thursday evening in the Education building. Hubert de Wageanere spoke on "Kul-u- r and the Collapse of the Superman." Mr. de Wagenaere gave the several definitions of "Kultur" taken by the various German writers In their works and showed how the German education had been cheating the people of that country for the last fifty years. The speaker went on to prove that the German instead of being the superman is really inferior to the other peoples of the earth. This can be seen in the fact that England and France with a few months preparation were able to hold Germany, while It took Germany years to prepare. While she is winning now 'she has not done all she set out to do, and the superman should have the spirit and the power to accomplish all that he sets out to do. Mr. de Wagenaere is with Victor Bogaert and is a Belgian. He sees the war ln its true proportions and blames German philosophers and teachers as well as the Kaiser.
