Its foundation In 1789 by John Car roll, afterward the first archbishop of Baltimore, was at a time when oWaihington, Franklin, Hamilton, and Jefferson were laying deep and strong the foundations of our national -glory upon the firm and solid rock of the people's aorarelffn power. From the venerable Up of this 'great patrlot-prleit, Georgetown re oelved her first lessons In patrlotltm. His life's story Is full of Inspiration (or the present hour. Ho was an American with all an American's lovn oT liberty. "He joined with heart and Judgment In the Revolution." declared a contemporary witness, "and he re tained without abatement of confi dence and faror the cardinal princi ples and the American sympathies and hopes upon which he then acted." The walls of the Ryan dining hall are emblazoned with the names of the Georgetown men who fought during tie war of 1812, the Mexican and clrll It1 i Thirteen Cold Stan.

C HOWARD COLLEGE ADDS FACILITIES One of the first acts of the French people in revolution, impoverished as they were and surrounded by hostile nations In arms, was to appropriate money for public education. At almost the same time, on this sldj of the ocean. President Washington was xrltlng these words In his famous farewell address: "Promote, then, as an object of primary lmparinee. In stitutions for the general diffusion of knowledge. In proportion as the structure of government gives force to public opinion, It is essential that public opinion should be enlightened." The same conviction which formed the basis of the attitude toward educa tion of the revolutionary leadera of France and America actuated the friends of the American negro who were responsible for the founding of Howard University, which was born in that period or strife and disagree ment following the civil war. It was during this period, fifty-one years ago, that Howard Unlvcrslt opened Its doors, with students in five departments, preparatory. normal, collegiate, law, and medical. The In stitution was designed, to use the words of one of its founders, "to give life and energy to the widely-scattered common schools established by the Freedmen's Bureau," by furnish ing competent teachers, leaders, and crofesslonal men. and It has amply Justified the faith of those wno la bored to establish It. Founded at a time when most Americans believed, or professed to believe, that the negro could not assimilate anything beyond the most elementary studies, Jts suc cess in putting to rout this old super stition was immediate and startling. Starting, as was said above, with five departments and slxty-thrco pupils, it numbers today ten depar .tnent-s, 119 teachers and officers, and 1,065 stu dents, and graduates numbering thoii sands. At Its last commencement de grees were conferred upon 179 per uana in the arts. law. medicine, den tistry, pharmacy, education, and the ology and certificates and diplomas unon Almost as manv more. Most of the ambitious young col ored men and women of the South are not able to attend the distant and ex- pensive Northern universities, and, as we know, their own southern univer sities will not receive them. For such, then, Howard offers a place midway, with all the unusual advan tages of a great National Capital, with a large community of enlighten ed and cultured colored people as a social background, and lacking the worst of the humiliating conditions of life In the South. The university of fers liberal courses in the purely col legiate studies. In the art of teach ing, in law, medicine, dentistry, phar macy, engineering, home economics, music library training, theology, and business subjects, and for the benefit of those who have lacked in their own communities the proper facilities for high school training or college preparatory work an efficient acad emy is still maintained. One of the most striking departments of the university Is the schol of medi cine, whose record is as honorable as it is long. The facilities It offers are exceptional, either ior general or spe cial work. Its own library, chosen largely as an aid to the regular class room work, is supplemented for re search purposes by that of the aur gean general's office, one of the fin est collections of its kind In the world. When one adds to this the Army Medi cal Museum, without a rival in the world, and other Government institu tions, as the National Museum, the Museum of Hygiene, the Museums of the Department of Agriculture, the Botanic Garden, and the Patent Of fice Museum and Library, it needs no argument to convince one of the un usualness of the opportunities pre sented. But the crowning advantage of this school Is the presence across the square from its buildings of the magnificent Freedmen's Hospital, erected by the Government at a cost of $600,000. This hospital, unlike many used similarly, has the advant age of being designed primarily for teaching purposes. It has about 300 beds, and contains two clinical am phitheater, a pathologic laboratory, clinical laboratories, and a room for x-ray diagnostic work and for xray therapy. The medical faculty of How ard University practically constitutes the hospital staff. In few hospitals In America whose resources are avail able for teaching purposes can the work of instruction be carried out so fully and systematically. So cele brated is this institution that prac ticing physicians and surgeons of long experience 'ome from far-off cities to do special work under the Instruc tion of its experts, and patients ar rive almost daily from distant points to seek medical and surgical treat ment under conditions whirh they re gard as exceptionally favorable. The school of medicine of Howard Uni versity Is rated in the official list of the American Medical Association as a "Class A" institution . Owing to a somewhat Insistent de mand, particularly from, the South, for opportunities for library training, the university has recently instituted a. library training class, notable because It Is the only one existing In an in stitution patronized mainly by color ed jouth The pldcr departments of the uniersity are doing steadily a work commensurate with that of schools of equal opportunity, furnish lng each year large numbers of pro fessional men and women, teachers, and ministers, the leaders so sorely needed In the backward communities of the South. Who can measure the service ren dered In this way? A new department, the School of Manual Arts and Applied Sciences, with Its courses in manual training, home economics, and en gineering. Is slowly expanding, and Its possibilities for eervlce seem limit less. In May the radio and trades school for selected draftees was on the unl verslty campus with 300 enlisted men taught by eight army officers and a corps of teachers belonging to the unl verslty. On July 15 a second school of the same kind was opened with 300 new draftees This school Is now un der the efficient command of Capt Jamea H. Beazlcy. It has prepared hundreds -of men for varied special service work in the new army, and, as a practical problem In construction work, the men are now engaged in building the largo barracks which will shelter the future military units to be trained on the campus A number of the soldiers of this school, of the required personal and educational qualifications, have been recommend- ed for assignment to officers' training camps. On the first of August a further addition was made to the military ac tivities of the university In tho form df a students' training camp, com posed of 453 selected teachers and students from tho best colored schools of the country. The Government con tract called for but 200, but 453 came, and of course the university secretary more than double, task, so In some way the problem was olc.d, and there are now more than 700 men In uniform accommodated sheltered, fed, and taught In the college build ings. The students' training camp is In charge of Lieut. Russell Smith, for many years a. soldier 1n the famous Tenth Cavalry, whose traditions are as dear to the colored people, of America as those of the Light Brigade are to the English. Lieutenant Smith, a thorough soldier, who knows his work from A to Z. la assisted by sev eral alert youffg officers of the Nfnety second Division The work done In this camp Is intensie to a degree, and the progress made by the student soldiers, both In the work of the class and on the drill field, has been re markably rapid, and has so Impressed not only civilian but also military visiters. The results achieved In so short a time speak volumes not only for the Intelligent zeal and Interest of the students, but for the efficiency of the commanding officer and his staff as well. The friends of the uni versity are proud of the camp, and feel that It will compare favorably with any similar group In the country During the coming academic year the university will do Its share of the military training demanded of the larger and better-equipped schools of the country. The Government has al ready signified Its Intention of contin uing the work already begun, both In the radio unit and along the new lines outlined in the published pro gram for the training of the men of eighteen to twenty enlisted under the new draft law. The new barracks, located between the men's dormitory and the manual arts building, are steadily rising day by day, and should be ready for occupancy very soon. All preparations are being made to take care of Uncle Sam's new soldiers from October of this year until June, 1919 THE, SCIENCE OF SINGING BET IT WAS A BOY MQDESTO, Cal., Sept. 8. Man's pro pensity to gamble on the serious Is sues of life was frowned upon by a Jury of women here when Dr. E. K. Ward was awarded the exact obstet rical fee demanded of Frank Aragone, but refused to take cognizance of a gambling agreement. When Aragqne learned the stork was on Its way ho told Dr. Ward: "I'll pay you twice your usual fee If It's a boy and nothing If it's a girl." The doctor accepted the waeer. It' was a boy and Aragone refused to pay double. The Jury sustained him. By AUGUST KUfG-SMlTH. The time has long since passed when serious and Intelligent students of the voice are satisfied with mero exercise and blind Imitation of ton's and with dependence only on vogue and figurative expressions of how and where a tone should be "placed" for their vocal development. As there are laws in composition which the painter must master. In balance and poise which the sculptor must under stand. In harmonic structure which the composer of music must know, so must tho builder of tone, whether It bo a mechanical Instrument or the human voice, know the laws that un derlie the production of tone. The science of the art of singling may be learned in a study of the theory of sound as related to the human voice. Psychology of Singing. The psychology of singing, by which Is meant the meaning behind tho tone and tho manner of project ing It, Is a very Important element, but a singer with, only his psycho logical Instinct to rely on and with out being a master of the sclenco of tone Is as bad off as the however greatly Inspired painter or poet or sculptor would bo without a true knowledge of composition and form and balance. Not so many great singers would be compelled to Stop singing for a period of time and go back to coaching if their singing was based "on scientific principles. There are four physical elements that students should master before giving themselves up to unrestrained Inspiration, In other words, before "forgetting their technlc" These are: timbre, resonance, pltah, and volume or control. In studying these ele. ments thoroughly and applying the knowledge gained to the singing tone the student will learn to develop in a few months power and richness of tone that it took years to develop under the old, and even today often used, mayhap unwittingly, empirical method of teaching. In the days of Rossini, a teacher required a life time to teach a chosen pupil his art through Imitation, but modern science In singing has changed all this and makes It possible to achieve the same results In comparatively little time ana enort. Soal Jn Song. Much is heard In these war times about the benefits to the soldier of singing, and ona has said that the allies will "sing themselves to via tory." The psychology and science of this Is that the expression of the soul In song does more than disci pline or any other agency to give the soldier that buoyancy of spirit which Is so necessary for his morale, and the act of singing brings Into vigor ous action the muscles enveloping the chest, the seat of emotion, thus mak ing the singer fully conscious of his psychic and nervous energies and drawing him away from conscious ness of the dead weight of physical flesh. In this regard what has been found good for the soldier is good for ev erybody, and, fortunately, this good has been partly realized throughout the country by the formation of community singing societies. These singing societies will stimulate the study of vocal development; and as the scientific development of the voice presupposes and demands in its development a healthy, vigorous. deep-breathing body, people gener ally will come to change their old fashioned ideas' that singing and all music Is simply an accomplishment Lor a luxury, but that It is one of the vuai adjuncts ox a peoples xuiiness of life.

FINE ARTS SCHOOL UNIQUE IN SCOPE The National School of Fine and Applied Art is unique among Vash ington educational Institutions In that It provides a place where students may study and work along modern l.nes of thought in the art of Europe and America. The courses embody all the principles of fine art as well as the values which the commercial world demands; yet they allow lndl vidua! expression In both style and technique, and develop any latent tal ent that the student may possess. Particularly In war work, has the school demonstrated Its possibilities. A. special course In camouflage was Inaugurated last season and the grad uates now occupy Important positions In the Government's various camou flage sections. Another new aim or the school Is a course for teachers to give instruction to returned dis abled soldiers, who, otherwise help, less, may be able to make a comfort able living through basket-weaving, chair-caning, etc. Scores of Government war workers are expected to be enrolled at the opening of the school's fall term on October 1. Evening classes have been arranged, and a special system of "daylight lighting" is provided for them. The many courses include spectrum color system, Interlsfrfs"' oration, life drawing, sculpture- class, fiee-hand drawing Jfcetrhlng, cos- tarn design. poiJs0jnpOiton( com-i msreial art flsM Triustratlve advertis ing, and sjrwspaper illustration The asjfcool Is under the direction of Felix SCahony, long prominent In to-1 cal art circles, who give personal attentlen to every student He be lleves that the courses provided by his sahool will provide avenues of rrogiass In the world of fine and ap-. pile art that hae hitherto never been used to the full extent of their possibilities.
