Katherine Tlngley has been a great humanitarian. With .Mme. Tingley are a dozen students from her Raja-Yoga college Had she" no other tribute to her genius than this dozen boys and girls, . she could feel life had been well worth living. Several of the girls are per fect examples of the Tingley theories, since they have been under her train ing since infancy. One is tempted to label them perfect young women, 1f perfection were not usually such an obnoxious term and if madame herself did not object. At nineteep- and twenty they art gifted musicians, they can discuss world affairs and policies with the case of statesmen, and withal they are radiant examples of health.i young womanhood, full of dimpling laughter when met informally, with a radiance shining from a steadfast gaze and the serene beauty that can only come from beautiful thoughts. Student Pity I). C. Girl. "I'm not going to let them be spoiled with undeserved praise." Mme. Tingley warned me, with eyes twink ling with satisfaction at the admira tion her charges everywhere elicit "They must le very humble about it all because, they have had the op portunity, the environment, the ex ample that the hundreds o( young girls walking up and down' b" street have never. had." And one of the girl? spoke up: "I feel so bad when I look in their eyes--they look o unhappy some times almost misery in them and they're maybe only nineteen or twenty they look why. just .as it they'd never been girls but had jumped right from childhood into women." "I called my college Raja-Yoga." Mme. Tingley explained, "because that means the royal -union-the unior. of the spiritual, mental, and physi cal sides of life. The real secret of the system is to evolve the child's character rather than to overtax the child's ' mind -it is to bring out. rather than to bring to the faculties of the. child, the grander part from within.
