Henry Clay was chosen for the Hall of Fame at the first election in lflOO by the College of Electors consisting of one hundred distinguished persons throughout the country. Most of those who were chosen at the same time have been honored by the customary bronze bust which is placed above the tablet in the Colonnade at University Heights. Clay has waited twenty-fiv- e years for this tribute, and the Director of the Hall of Fame, Dr. Robert Underwood Johnson, has very appropriately invited Kentuckians to contribute to the relatively small fund of $3,000 which in each instance is necessary to provide and install a bust. Readers of this paragraph throughout the state are respectfully invited to send their contributions for this purpose in however small amount, l. to the Editor of the If the amount is contributed promptly, the bust will be unveiled on the tenth of May with distinguished ceremonies, along with those of Louis Agassiz, the scientist, Morse the inventor of the telegraph, President Madison, John Paul Jones, and possibly others. The director confidently counts on the pride of Kentuckians to erect this memorial to the greatest figure identified with the state. y, Courier-Journa- C. Harvard University, Cambridge, Mass.

B. McLeod. In dealing with this subject Professor McLeod first gave a general talk on philosophy and psychology. "Philosophy and Life can never be divorced," he said. Thinking has an effect on the thinker, which translates the thought into action. Philosophy is the subject which draws the sciences together in that it points out new lines of endeavor for them to pursue. Psychology is the baby science. It has been in existence for only a little over fifty years, but in those years it has made startling progress. In as in all other science, fads or cults have grawn up. One of these fads is Behaviorism. This fad attaia-e- d the height of its popularity between 1912 and 1920, but now is fading out. In order to understand Behaviorism, something must first be known of philosophy and of psychology. Philosophy is the study of the soul. Psychology is the study of consciousness. Consciousness is the effect of 12 or 13 sensations; which involve the characteristics of extensity and duration. Consciousness is essentially introspective. One cannot study the consciousness of another. Behaviorists Study, Objective Now behaviorism is the scientific study of this consciousness. It attempts to make the study objective. From a Behaviorist's point of view the human body consists of the sense organs, the nervous system, the muscles and the glands. Human life, is to him no more than a series of respon These responses are either explicit or implicit, inherited or acquired. They can be analyzed into simpler terms, but their explanation is very difficult. Behaviorism regards man as little more than a machine. The weakness of the Behaviorist attitude are, first, that certain of the fundamental assumptions of the cult cannot be proved. Secondly, that the complete man is not studied. Ex perience is entirely omitted. Lastly, Behaviorism attempts to get away introspective from the factor. The cult, however, has its failures Its rigid insistence on scientific methods had a beneficial effect on the whole study, and it has attempted to bring mind and matter together. At the close of Professor McLeod's lecture the meeting was thrown open for discussion, the members and Professor Caldwell offering illustrative comments and asking questions of the lecturer. ses. -- H H H H 20 H
