KULTUR OF GERMANY

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.
