The Kansas City Dental College
Offers a complete course in dental instruction to high school
men and others of equal qualification.
Equipment unsurpassed and Faculty selected for excellence.
Everything up to date.
Sou: It is in direct line with the policy of the Kansas City
Dental College to teach young men more than the mere art and
science of dentistry and to interest its students in all the obliga
tions of citizenship. It encourages its pupils to think along
collateral lines and has always dwelt forcibly upon the philosophy
of ethics. The Kansas City Dental College believes that any school
of specialized learning has a greater obligation to its students
than merely imparting to them the principles of one vocation.
For this reason it encourages societies among the young men
in attendance. That this wise policy bears fruit is evidenced
by the fact that scarcely a dental association meeting is held in
the United States in which there is no at least one of is Alumni
taking prominent and honorable part.

This includes all necessary expenses.
More than live hundred students

AH kinds of positions are tilled by
students. Much or the work on the
State Farm is done by University

pay for his laundry and room rent.
Not all the students who work
their way through the University are

Shanghai, China, will receive both
the A. B. and B. S. in Journalism de
gree this spring. When he came to
Columbia five years ago he had just
enough money to pay his entrance
fees. Since then he has made all his
money. He has been night orderly
at the Parker Memorial Hospital for
several years. After graduation this

ROCKFORD (JIVES CHARACTER
Second Oldest Girls' School In U. S.
Offers Students Varied Training.
Rockford College at Rockford. 111.,
is the second oldest woman's college
in the United States, and was the
first to be placed on a par in scholar
ship with the leading universities.
It ranks now in scholarship and so
cial atmosphere with Vassar, Welles
ley and Smith.
Unlike most women's colleges, it
offers a secretarial course including
all the training necessary to fit a
young woman for business. How
ever, it does not slight literature and
music, and the young woman who is
developed along all or these lines
will find great opportunities open to
her. Authors send in urgent calls
for such young women to work for
them, business men ask for trained
college women who know how to ap
pear well wherever they are, and
busy pastors of large churches have
work Tor trained young women with
social ease and grace. Rockford
College girls last year received de
grees in June and in September were
principals of high schools.
For the girl who likes to cook and
"do things around the house" a
thorough course in domestic science
is offered, where the girls are taught
to cook, sew and make their homed
And then, who cares to live with
out friends? And what is it in a
woman that attractss and holds
others? It is not money, nor even
intellect, but strength and depth of
character. Rockford college in ath
letics, in aesthetic dancing, elocution
courses and dramatic achievements,
as well as in psychology and ethics
courses, opens the channels
and teaches its girls how to let the
real woman in them be known. Its
fine democratic social atmosphere is
a constant "daily practice" tor things
learned at the lectures.
"To swim and row, be strong and
active, but of the gentle graces lose
not sight, to dance without a craze
for dancing," to play as freely as an
autumn leaf, then work and master
French and Logic and Latin; in
short, to possess life, "red blood,
warmth and laughter," sweetness
which can carry one through failure
and hard knocks and wipe out all
grudges this is the pot of gold a
real girl will find at Rockrord College.
