A full length portrait of the late
Joseph Dicker, Superintendent
Shops, has been received and placed
in Mechanical Hall, for criticism by
friends who knew him intimately. The
portrait was painted by Ferdinand
Graham Walker, of Louisville, and is
the gift of the alumni of the University.
Formal ceremony presenting this
portrait to the University will be held
some time during the Commencement
week In June. The portrait is regarded by those who knew Mr. Dicker
best, as a remarkable likeness.


Rev. R. H. Bennet Speaks on
"What Will You Do With

Your Life?"

The Reverend Richard H. Bennett,
of Atlanta, Georgia, spoke in chapel
Tuesday on "What Will You Do With
Your Life?" and presented the claims
of the ministry as a profession for
young men. In the absence of Dr.
Professor P. P. Boyd presided
and introduced the speaker.
"Follow your bent," said Reverend
Bennett in speaking of the choice of a
profession "God has a plan for every
life the ministry has no copyright
on the call. God will reveal your
calling thru an uprising in your heart.
But be sure your motive is right. Inferior motives perish; money and
fame are unworthy incentives unless
they are to be used for the blessing
of mankind."
In describing the qualifications of a
preacher, he said: "The preacher must
be a strong man to keep step withj
God; he must know the human heart
and human motives, for the ministry
touches human life at every point. The
life of the minister is the most happy
of all, because it is a life of conscious
acceptance of God. He has privilege
to be envied by the angels.
"Tho most heroic life is that which
most nearly reproduces His spirit. Ho
was the bravest and truest warrior
that ever lived."

The speaker recalled some expeyears in the
riences of his twenty-fiv- e
ministry, and said that there were
times in the life of a preacher when
he asked the angels no odds, because
of the service ho wus able to give to
his fellowmen and the consequent Joy
which was his. In closing, ho asked
tho boys to consider tho ministry,
when choosing their profession, and
urged them to remember that General
Pershing had usked for hundreds of
chuplalus for the American Expedl
tionury forces In Frunce, whilo the Y.
M. C. A. hud sent out a call for 1,600

"While the outlook seems to be distinctly discouraging,' Doctor Patterson said, 'those who are most familiar
