them for the duties of life. We will not knowingly accept
your son if he has formed bad habits or .is'hot pjjepared for

respond to our efforts, we'will return him to his'home before
he has had much opportunity to waste his own time or his
father's money. The President and Faculty believe heartily
in looking after the interests of the individual student, and
their organization for this purpose in 1909-'10 is better than
ever before. _
