good fortune in having a man of such

Lindsey has a message to the Ameri
can people and his subject, "The Mis

some time in February, with the date
not yet decided upon.
The remaining two numbers of the
lyceum course are local talent, the
Augustana Symphony orchestra, which
will appear in March, and the Wenner

annual conceit in April. The great
success of both of these last year in
artistic production and in drawing rec

Live and Help I.lTe.
That the Y. M. C A. is one of the
uplifting movements which is more
and more drawing the attention of phil
anthropists, sociologists and leading
men of the day, was the statement
made by Dr. E. F. Bartholomew of
Augustana college yesterday in the
course of a lecture before the class in
sociology. "Live and help live," is
coming to be the motto of today, ac
cording to Dr. Bartholomew. "In the
primitive state of man, 'live' was his
motto and mainspring of his actions.
Here we see the struggle for exist
ence. Then as man advanced in the
scale of civilization he discarded his
old ideals and 'live and let live' be
came his motto. Here we have civili
zation. But civilization is not man's
ultimate goal. After civilization we
have socialization. True, even today
we have our cringing, crowding meth
ods jof business men and 'Live! Live!
Live! and let others help them
selves!' 13 the motto and sole aim.
But there Is a growing sentiment in a
different direction. Men of money,
men of means, are more and more be
ing caught with the spirit of brother
hood and humanity.
Helping- Iin Fortunate.
"Everywhere in the industrial world
we see pictures of misery, of men
treated like beasts, and where selfish
ness and self-interest result in degra
dation to thousands of human beings.
But we rejoice to see our captains of
industry waking up to a realization of
the needs of their less fortunate fellow-beings.
Employes are given short
er and bette'r hours of labor and are
even, in some cases, provided by their
employers with comforts of home.
Today it is comparatively easy to
raise funds for a good cause. Educa
tional Institutions are richly endowed
and whole communities are inspired
with enthusiasm for Y. M. C. A's. The
inestimable value of such movements,
whose good effects remain as perma
nent blessings to the communities,
are more and more drawing the atten
tion of our moneyed men and our men
of prominence. In a word, the world
is growing better."
