HERE.
The governor dwelled at length on the
iteracy question in Indiana. He told
a visit to the state reformatory at
ffersonvflle, where he saw 400 boys
tween the ages of 15 and 20 who could
itber read nor write. “The state is
it doing its duty as long as it permits
iteracy within its borders,” he said.
Colleges and universities are facing a
isis the like of which America has
sver known, Dr. Schurmann said.
"This crisis is not one to be formn
ted by any such question as ‘How can
e get sufficient money for salaries to
stain professors?' Most of the pro
sssors who are in -the profession will
ay—many of them because they must
ad many others because they love it.
ut what America has to think of Is
hat is to become of the teaching
rrofesslon.
JCIT SCHOOL TO
lECOME BRICKLAYERS.
“Here is what is becoming of it; The
nen in their thirties who left the uni
ersities during the war are not coming
uck. Young men in tbelr twenties, with
teliectual tastes, are driven away:
riven away by fear of destitution for
eir wife and children, which every red
ooded young man fondly dreams of
lid hopes to call his own. They go
it to -become bricklayers or merchants
a decent livelihood.
“Do not misunderstand me. You can
<>t make a church with money; neither
an you make a university with all the
iney in the world. Universities are
aAde of men, but the situation Is such
oday that hundreds of intellectual
eung men can not afford to enter the
eaching profession. America must alter
his condition if our educational system
s to advance, or even survive.”

The first move of Speaker Sweet was
o kill all debate on an effort to reseat

“We have come here,” he said, “to

Chairman Martin said: “We can not

tartln. “Many other organizations have
jught to aid us in this way and 1t

Mr. Hughes stood in his place grim
ced as chairman Martin made his rul
g. Mr. Martin praised the talents of
B. Hughes and his colleagues, but said
Bt their qualifications did not enter into
Is matter. He said that the Bar assocla
fcn ought to approach the assembly it

Be committee did not wish to be dis-
Birteous, but the Bar association could
Bt be heard.

fgßi view of the gravity of the ques
