Berea (From ths Courier-Journal, July 24) Mia Laura MrClintork'a account, In yesterday's Courier-Jour-rial, of Beres Collepe in the summer time portray a unique and remarkable srhievement in education. Berea College In a far removed from the eleirant finishing school or the well-appointed me.n'a college a Athena wan removed from Sparta. There i, indeed, something really Spartan in the self-reliance, the industry, the plain life and the hard work which Berea typi fies. Here in a Kentucky mountain school for mountain men and women, moat of whom, but for Berea, would never nee the inidc of a arhool. They come to develop their mind and to fit them reive better for the hard existence of their natrva environment. In order to do that, being poor, they must not only apply themselves to their lessons; they mut do outside work to py their way. The result of this "outside work" i Berea' par ticular wonder. They make Berea practically an economic unit. It cooks and serve it own food, and we are told that the coot of the average meal, including overhead, i but twelve cents. And these twelve-cent meals are quite larire enough to feed even the hungry mountaineer! It manages ita own laundry. It run it own dairy. Not only do the college power plant and water system light, heat and furnish water for the students. They also supply the town of Berea with these necessaries. The college has its own cannery, now engaged in put'ing up Mi, 000 gallon of fruits and "vegetables, it own vegeUHu gar dens, it own forest reserve. It runs a broom factory. It oper ate a mill and it manufacture furniture which in used by the students. For the women, it has a laboratory where they are taught weaving and other mountain household arts. A complete catalog of Berea' activities would occupy much space. But enough ha been cited to illustrate what a tremend ously important place Berea is for the mountain folk. The men who graduate take back with them, not only the enlightment which comes from academic training, but practical knowledge of the better methods of tilling the soil, breeding cattle and getting out of nature the things that minister to life's well being. The women, likewise, return much better fitted to carry on the work of the mountain. Many of them, having prepared themselves for teachers' certificates, go back to spread Berea ideals and Berea "larnin among the mountain children. But Berea is more than a lioon to the hills from which it draw its strength. It is an object lesson to the nation in its fine exemplification of plain living and high thinking. America needs a thousand Hereas, where character could be developed and where the obtaining of degrees would be less f an aim in itwlf than a by-product. H. G. Wells The writer knows H. G. Wells only thru "The Outline of Hia try," a book which has come into remarkable prominence with in the last year and a half. For many year Mr. Well ha held a high place aa a novelist and as a writer of special articles for magaiines, but the above work is his first attempt at his torical writing. "The Outline of History' i a great work, and a tmlque work. For a work of its scope it is remarkably free from Was, and the writer, unlike many eminent men of his country, I able to see the faults of hi government and rondem without mercy the selfish policy that has had so much to do with placing the British Empire where it is. There i nothing new in this book In the way of facta. But here history is written in a new way. In the first place, it i interesting, interesting to everybody who will read it. An ol.l farmer wiio ha never been thru the grade can read thia work and understand it and enjoy it, and yet it ia not a "young peo- pie' history" or a juvenile book. A man can read it thru and 1 never find it necessary to reread a single sentence. It is writ ten in simple language, and the events that (have shaped the progress) of men unroll themselves like a picture before the reader and he can see the armies marching across one empire and de stroying the toil and culture of centuries, while in another part 'f of the world a saint ia leading million out of darkness and super stition into the light of knowledge and the practice of the golden rule. Mr. Well i not an orthodox writer of history. He demolishes heroes and rondemna whole system that the reader had thought to be the last words in excellence. The writer of history that, is, the kind of history that we have been surfeited with condemn Well and all hia work, but then hia history is Being read, an J who shall blame them? In the "Outline" we are shown histori cal facts in new relations. The religion, old and new, are com pared and analyzed, and many prophet who had not interested u before rise up and demand our consideration and get it The man who read "Tha Outline of History" will see the world from a new point of view, and think less of hia ancestors and a great deal more of God.
