Some of the Advantages of Such a
Combination of Schools as Beroa
Explained Many Departments
Give Good Chances to Everybody
In our Issue of last week a brief
mention was mado of thn many dill
fering courses of Instruction offered by
Borea College which make It possi
ble for any one almost to find here
Just tho kind of Instruction they want i
Bcrea Is not merely a college or nor
mal school or a model school or a
trade school It la all of these things
at once and hero each student can
find exactly the combination of teAch
ling and training which Is best adapt
ed to his or her particular needs I
And as wo showed last week all
the equipment is the best possible
and every provision had been mado to I
fascist the student In every possible I
way The teachers who havo charge
of the work here too havo been very
carefully selected and have train
Ing and natural ability which is un
surpassed In fact the schools offers
the best and most complete chances
for a first class education for young
people of any In Kentucky
In the articles following this are
set forth a few of the advantages of
fered In the different courses These
are not all by a good deal for there
la not room to tell of all It there
are other things about the school
which you want to know write to
Will C Gamble Secretary of Berca
College for a catalogue Also tell
him In what course of study you are
most Interested and be will give you
full Information
Tho second revision of Bercas cata
log just Issued shows many changes
in courses of studies especially In
normal preparatory and college de
partments The time for recitation
has been lengthened to one hour a
change which will greatly add to the
efficiency of tho Instruction So far
as scheduling and assignment of class
es are concerned the semester plan
common In most colleges has been
adopted with exception or certain
courses In tho normal which must be
gin In January This Is a saving of
onethird time In the offices In Is
suing schedules in recording grades
and In sending out reports For con
venience of students payments are
to bo made as formerly by the term
or half term
But the most notable changes are
in courses of study In the normal do
partment an entirely new course has
been established covering four years
of college work and leading to tho de
gree of Bachelor of Pedagogy this
will be welcome news to many pro
sent and prospective students in this
popular department Thq present for
ward movement In education Jn Ken
tucky and all tho South means
thero will be many calls for well quali
fled teachers The farseeing teacher
will not fall to upto this advance and
coming need and will prepare for It
by getting his Bachelor of Pedagogy
degree at Berca The academy courses
havo been recast Tho general
plan Is Intensive work four < solid
subjects four hours each per week
plus ono hour course in Dible
This is strong preparation for subse
quent college work
But the most noticeable changes are
lnvtho college department proper The
courses have been materially streng
thened and enriched dally recitations
equalized so that thero are no more
heavy and light days tho range
of electives greatly widened In prin
ciple tho group system with Its
majors and minors adopted so that a
student may do considerable special
ization In preparation for postgrad
uato work Courses are arranged for
one two three and four hours per
weok according to tho subject full
work will consist of sixteen hours
per week on the part of each student
An unique feature of tho new ar
rangement Is tho consulting period
when all recitations are off Ou Mon
day this is the first recitation period
on Tuesday tho second etc During
this time each teacher Is expected
to be In his room for the express
purpose of being consulted by stu
dents who are taking work In his
classes and who may bo In need of
assistance This plan ought to mean
very much In strengthening scholar
ship and In bringing about a closer
relationship between student and

When T1IK CITIZEN cornea I
tti < Mi A man who would try to cut a tree with a dull ax is about
as wise as the follow that would try to 4get along without a news
paper or with a poor one Jjyt
It is not often that this editor feels called upon to preach a
sermon but he saw an incident the other day which makes him feel
that there is at least one he would like to preach and preach so loud
that every man woman and child in the country would hear it And
the text for the sermon would be There are two sides to every case
even your own
It is always hard for any man to believe that he has been wrong
When he gets into a dispute with a neighbor he always believes that
tho neighbor is wrong and that in sticking to his point that neighbor
is doing him a serious injury It was such a case as that which thot
editor saw in which two old friends were separated because of a
little dispute which was not worth a dollar to either of them but
in which each believed the other was doing him an intentional
injustice I could forgive tho injury each one says to day but
I can never forgive him for standing up for his point when bo was
so clearly in the wrong It shows that he is not a safe man to deal
And yet both men were wrong tho each felt sure he was right
But each one was so constructed that he could not see things from
the other point of view Each insisted that tho other man should
look at it front his way and neither would make any effort to meet
the other mails views It is often that way We all hate to admit
that we may not be exactly right and we pay no attention to the
other fellows arguments just because wo will not take the trouble
to see his point of view
It is a queer thing but one vhicu every thinking man knows
that there is no single act which is either right or wrongthat
over thing depends on the circumstances and the idea which the
man doing the act has in mind So it comes about that when two
men have different ideas in their minds they will disagree as to
whether a given act is right or wrong And each one will be
right from his own point of view But unless the other fellow
manages to find out what ideas the first one had in his mind ho will
never be able to understand how they came to disagree and he will
blame the first one for being in the wrong That really should
only disagreedThere
There is au old legend bearing on this subject which we ought
all to remember whenever we have a disagreement with a man
According to tho story two knights were riding thru the country
when they came to a cross roads where there stood a statue of a I
knight in full armor such as fighting men used to wear and holding
a big shield The two knights met exactly beside the statue and
began to talk about it They agreed that it was a very fine statue
and the one mentioned how much he liked tosee the golden shield
Why my friend said the second litho shield is silver
No said the first lilt is gold
UYou lie said the second lIit is silver
Liar yourself retorted the first I can see plainly that it is
Soon they fought and both were mortally wounded As they
lay dying a priest came along and asked the cause of their quarrel
They told him uud he got up and looked at the statue When he
came buck he said that they were both wrong that one side of
the shield was painted gold and the other side was painted silver
but that the shield was iron
According to the story tho two knights shook hands and died
friends but many a couple of friends has split up over just such a
trifle and has uever gotten together again
Each man must of course do what he believes is right But
he must remember that he is different from all other men and that
they have the same right to follow their own conciences There is no
proof that a man is wrong because he disagrees with you and even if
he is he has a right to be and it is no reason for personal feeling
You can disagree with him and be friends yet If he is a good
man and has been a good friend it is all the better if you can disagree
and bo friends Just try to see how he looks at it and even if you
cantagreo that he sees right it will make you have a kinder feel
ing for him If you can do this you will keep a lot of friends you
would otherwise lose
It is remarkable how often thingS arc not what they seem in
this worldhow often selfishness of the worst type goes under the
name of love for instance Take the case of a loving parent Id
a growing boy or girl Every ono knows that for a childbest good
it should learn to be independent of the old folks every bird has
got to fly on its own wings at the last A child cannot have the pro
tection of its home very many years All that it accomplishes has
got to be done on its own hook and to be worth anything has got
to learn to bo Independent to have a safe and sure judgement of its
own to care for itself to guide its own feet And to do this it is
necessary for a child to go away from homoto go somewhere where
it will have a chituce to learn I a little at u time to do these things
There is no place so good as a good school where tho child can take
its first lessons in freedom with n kind teacher watching faun slips
But how often when the time comes for the child to go away the
parents suy they cannot spare tbe youngster becauso thuylove it so
And so the child stays at home and loses the best chance it will ever
have to fit itself for life What kind of love is this that makes a
child lose such things As a result of this love the child will be
poorer all its life it will be less able to get along in the world it will
be less likely to make a good name for itself it will bo more likely to
fail in all that is worthwhile in life in short it will carry the burden
of inefficiency and ignorance and weakness all thru life just because
of this love of the parents Does a feeling which puts a burden
like that on ones child deserve the name of love l And do yon know
anyone who has some of that feeling Better be sure that there is
none of that kind of love among the reasons which will keep your
boy or home from school this fall
