J | _ The advantages we might say the necessity of a full college course for young men were discussed in a pre.- vious issue. No one can question the necessity of #college training for those who aspire to eminence in a learned profession. Success Depends __ You are probably skeptical about the advantages of a college course for "business purposes. In truth, some are convinced that it is a drawback rath- er than a help. Theoretically any one would say that a man with a trained mind is better fitted for business than one not so trained. Success in busi- ness depends chiefly on two qualities: First, the mental power to grasp and solve big industrial and financial problems. Second, the capacity for hard work and the habit of industry. College education of its very nature tends to develop thse two character- istics. But what are the facts in the case? What does experience show? The 'answer is best gotten from the testimony of the great captains of in-. dustry and finance. They speak in no halting, uncertain terms. Has Its Chance Mr. Charles M. Schwab, the steel magnate, has .been reported by cer- tain newspapers as opposed to col- lege education. In his book, "Suc- ceeding With What You Have," Mr. Schwab denies such rumors and gives his opinion of college education in such emphatic statements as follows: "I am no against a college educa- tion/ I have never been. Whatever may have been true in the past there is no doubt that today industrial con- ditions favor the college man. Odd crudities are disappearing; science :s dethroning chance. Business is con- ducted on so vast a scale that the broadening effects of higher education, gained through proper applcatlon, write a large figure .... Higher edu - cation has its chance when the col-' lege boy has mastered all th minor details of the business. Then if he went to college with serious purpose and studied hard and systematically he has the advantage of a thoroughly trained mind to tackle larger prob- lems---a mind which should be broad- er and more flexible because of its greater powers of imagination and logical reasoning. Real success is won by hard, honest, persistent toil. Un- hs a youffg man gets aecusomea to that n school he is going o have a ver hard time getting accustomed tl it dutside." "Go to College" ] r, eorge Reynolds, head of the Co ti: mtal and Commercial Bank, of Chicago, says: "If my words have any weight, I would like to impress o,| boys ane young men one point: Go to college. I did not go. But I recognize that the man who has made a university course has a tremendous handicap over the boy who has to plod step by step through the hard school of ex- perience." auncey M. Depew, railroad therefore, all the more terrified at the thought of the solemn assembl3 at which he would be the hero. He con- ceded his presence at best he could in one of the boxes while the minis- ters spoke in praise of him and his work, but he was finally forced to rise and go several times to the edge of the balcony to acknowledge the accla- mations of the crowd. magnate, United States senator and famous orator, tells you: "Any young man with a college ed- ucation increases his chances of mak- ing a living and of more rapid pro- motion in any line of business two to three hundered per cent, given; that he has the requisite amount el  industry, energy and persistent appli- cation." lVr. E. G. Ripley, president of the Santa Fe Railroad, Chicago: 'Ijam of the opinion tha college graduates are better equipped for general work than non-collegiate.,, Preferred Mr. Cyrus McCormick, president of the Harvester Machine Company, o Chicago: "In selecting help we certainly do not avoid college men, but would rath- er give them the preference, believ- ing that they would make quicker progress and show a better all-around ability than those who had not the ad- vantage of college education." Mr. Marvin Hughitt, president of the Chicago and Northwestern Rail- road: "It is my conviction that young men cannot get too good an education.', Greater Ability Mr. J. V. Farwell, president of J. V. Farwell Company, Chicago: "College men show greater ability in deciding questions and in making sales and purchases, and on that ac- count are likely to advance more rap- idly." "Who's Who" lists 67 successful self-made men against 8,529 college graduates. It also tells us that col- lege education increases the chances of a high school boy nine times, giv- ing him two hundred and twenty times the chance of a common school boy. If all this testimony does not convince you get out and go to work before you have finished college. You are taking 'a great risk. You may live a long number of years to repe Your fool- ish choice. Don't do it now. VATICAN GUARDSMAN TAKES OATH OF ALLEGIANCE-- An unusual photograph, taken in the Vatican Garden, of an officer of the Palatine Guard taking the oath of allegiance to the Sovereign Pontiff. The Palatine Guard performs its duties gratis. It is a survival of an old regiment which in the days of the Papal States did m;litary and ooliee duties in the City of Rome. (Wide World.) NATION PAYS ITS LAST HONORS PAGE FIVE BOOKS ,of INTEREST How frequently one's book atten- tion is caught by the caption or the book jacket. "Our Best Poets," The- odore Maynard says over his own name when he 'ssembles them in lovely array for a collection publish- ed by Henry Holt & Company. "The book is wide awake," we are told, and so reading we step in,de to find the twelve English poets amon the living placed according to the" order of their merit, by the arranger, Mr. Maynard. We spy Gilbert K. Chesterton, Alice . Meynell and Hailaire Befloc keeping company with Walter De La Mare, W. B. Yeats, John Masefield, Laurence Binyon and others. These are classed in part one under the English poets, but part two takes us to the American poets to Ed- win Arlington Robinson, a humorist who can not laugh, to Amy Lowell, Carl Sandburg and Edgar Lee Masters under the fallacy of "Free Verse," from William Rose and Stephen Vin- cent Bent, Sara Teasdale, Edna St. Vincent Lillay and Ridgely Torrehce, or "From a Greek City to Greenwich Village:" In his introduction Mr: Maynard un- qualifiedly says "I believe Mr. Ches- TO LATE WARREN GAMALIEL HARDING terton to be the greatest modern Eng- lish poet on the ground of his aston- ishing achievement in "The Ballad of APOSTOLIC DELEGATE CALLS AT WHITE HOUSE AND the White Horse."

Oblivious of dis- tinctions of race, creed, or political sympathies the National Capital, in the name of the nation, paid its last homage to Warren G.

And. yet, imposing as were the cere- monies attending the funeral vf a President of the United States, it was for the passing of Warren G.

Delayed by the mourning of mil- lions who lined the tracks over which the dead rulee was being carried across the continent, the funeral train scheduled to reach Washington short- ly after noon yesterday, did not ar- rive until 10:26 last night. The vast plaza in front of the station had been cleared of vehicles and pedestrians and a crowd of more than 100,000 per- sons surged against the police lines striving to gain positions from which to view the arrival. In the Presiden- tial room at the east end of the sta- tion, through which President Hard- ing had passed when he started on his ill-fated Alaskan rip, President Cool- idge, members of the cabinet who had remained in Washington, and a few intimate friends waited.

Two of those who in former yeaxs had themselves been called to occupy the White House, rode in the procession to pay tribute to the mem- ory of their successor. There were the diplomatic envoys of Emperor, Kings, Princes and Presidents of for- eign governments modeled after our own. And there were delegations rep- resenting organizations of busines men, fraternal bodies, religious groups, patriotic societies, civic clubs of all elements in that huge complex mechanism of American life over VOTIVE CANDLE NOW vote of his fellow-citizens to guide thu earthly destinies of the nation.
