MUSIC, ORATORY AND ART
The Johnson School of Minneapolis
of Proven Worth. -_,
The Johnson School of Music, Ora
tory and Dramatic Art of this city
has become widely recognized the
country over as a leader of its class.
It occupies its own building erected
for its exclusive use, and spares no
effort to maintain the same high
standard of excellency already estab
lished. In all departments the most
rapid advancement commensurate
with good work will be insured from
the very beginning to the highest re
quirements of artistic finish. Terms
of tuition are as low as can be ob
tained for first-class instruction.
Lectures and recitals are given at
frequent intervals by members of the
faculty, which are free to pupils of the
school. The pupils themselves will
have many opportunities for gaining
experience in public playing by ap
pearing in the regular recitals.
The new building contains ample
room for everything pertaining to in
struction given by the schoolstudios,
gymnasium, lecture and music hall for
recitals, rehearsals, etc. The latter es
pecially is commended for its accessi
bility, being located on the ground
floor, and absolutely safe.
The advantage of receiving instruc
tion in a place devoted exclusively to
the school of music, oratory and
dramatic art cannot be overestimated,
where outside influences cannot dis
tract either pupil or teacher, and
where* association, environment and
the very atmosphere of the place in-
SDires a tmnil to ?ood work.

is so trained and disciplined that right
motive and action are the result of
worthy choice and a well-disciplined
will, of what real value has been the
college experience to a girl?
It is very evident to even the casual
observer, that for a girl to go to
college has become the fad. Each
year the better class of high schools
and preparatory schools are sending
thousands of young women to the uni
versities and the colleges for women,
a large majority of whom are going
because they can "have such a good
time" in college. These colleges,
many of them, offer instruction in
about as broad a line of studies, so
far as a general academic literary
course is concerned, as the best men's
The number of young women seek
ing entrance each year to these in
stitutions for higher education has
rapidly increasedin fact has exceed
ed in many instances the facilities pos
sessed by these institutions for doing
Classes are too large, instructors too
few, supervision too lax, freedom of
thought and action too often
unchallenged to admit of im
mature girls securing, either book
knowledge or general training of
the kind best calculated to develop
strong mental power or character.
There seems to be too much seek
ing, on the part of the student, for a
good time and a diploma with a de
cree at the end'of four years, to admit
of much serious study during that
period. The faculties of these insti
tutions deplore this fact and wish for
a different sentiment among students
in general toward scholarship and the
higher ideals of life.
Each governing body of these
schools seeks, however, to meet the
demands of its students, in order that
the institution may have as good or
better attendance in numbers as any
of its kind. Strenuous efforts are
constantly made, everywhere, by the
alumnae of these colleges, to induce
would-be college students to attend
their alma mater, and- invariably two
of the strongest arguments offered are
the large numbers of students attend
ing their favorite college, and "the
good times" its students always have.
This much is true, as can be proven
by any one taking the trouble to make
the test, any school known to require'
very strong work of its-students, hold
ing rigidly to a high standard of
conduct and scholarship for gradua
tion, must suffer in popularity and
patronage in comparison with institu
tions of easier, less rigid and less ex
cellent methods, and will- usually suc
cumb to the situation/ sooner or later.
If this is true, what can be done
to raise the standard of scholarship
and of living, that our girls may,
when school days are ended, be pos
sessed of such minds and characters as
shall enable them to meet in an ade
quate manner life's sternest ^demands,
and to manifest such graces of wom
anhood as, after all is said and done,
every woman living needs most to
May we not ask of'our-schools from
the beginning of the academic or col
lege preparatory work, that fewer
subjects shall be pursued than are now
required? That those which are
studied shall be well masterelT" in
order that .power .of concentration and
a genuine culture value may be
gained therefrom? (That more time

the best way from books That more
attention shall be given to culture sub
jects, and to social graces in the en
tire education of our girls than is now
possible according to the demands of
the colleges for entrance and while the
student is doing her college work?

and training than can possibly be se

HOLY ANGELS' ACADEMY
Successful School Devoted to the High

About three decades ago the Sisters
of St. Joseph from St. Joseph's
Academy in St. Paul, appreciating the
needs of 'young Jadies, established
Holy Angels' Academy in Minneapolis.
It is located in a highly desirable
neighborhood, feeing within easy
access of all adjacent quarters. Since
its inception, Holy Angels' Academy
on Fourth and Seventh avenues N has
been the center from which much of
the culture of the twin cities has
emanated,, many of the daughters of
their best families proudly claiming
this as their alma mater.
The well-planned curriculum em
braces every branch consistent with a
well-directed training from the
primary department to an ample
preparation for entrance to college.
The doors of the finest colleges and
universities to which women are ad
mitted are ever open to the graduate
of Holy Angels' Academy, and a
cordial welcome is given to her who
comes so admirably equipped to pur
sue the work of advanced education.
The music department is under
skilled and efficient supervision, and
the methods of instruction, adopted
are those of the renowned conserva
tories of this country and Europe.
