pointed under the chairmanship ot
ox-premier Asquith to investigate
the financial condition of the two
institutions, which two :fars ago
that the government granted each of.
them an emergency subsidy ot 30,000
pounds annually, thus saving both
colleges from collapse.
Including these subsidies, Oxford
had an income of 824,710 pounds in
11)20, while Cambridge totalled 719.-
055 pounds. The Commission's re
port recemmends increasing the an-
nuLil irnints tn IflO.flflft nimnrls each.
with additional provisions for ex
tending educational iacihties for
vviimen and paying pension arrears.
The commission stresses the point
that today the universities have
inteelv returned to their original
-- W " K
function of ministering to the non-
wealthy student, and have, m tact,
oecome "student democracies."
In addition to recommendinc amnle
facilities for the education or) wom
en, the report pleads for more state
scholarships, cheaper living costs and
better pay, with pension prospects
for professors. ;
Although the report regrets "the
comparative neglect of living lan
guages at both universities, it notes
:hat there is an increasing tendency
an the part of businessmen to look
to universities lor trained men as
future assistant and partners. It
fids that '"business salaries now of
i'fred to first class science men
.vould make it impossible to keep en
ough of the best men to do the
.caching at Oxfioid and Cambridge
were it not for the devotion to ac
idemia research and teachinc and
their attachment to the university."
As regards the cost of living fot
andergraduates, the report finds that
t i? too high. In lUiy-ZU the aver-
.-tiro tota vear s cost tor an arc stu

washing, books, stationery and per

Oxford and 145 pounds for Cam

A sensation has been made in
England by the visit of the famous
healer M. Coue, but it does not ap-

his theories or his methods. He is
evidently one of the exceptional per-

sons who througn some gut oi isa
ture exert a remarkable influence
upon those who come in contact with
them. Often ithis preeicus gift is
accompanied by charlatanism, but
thev seem to be a little or none of
this in the case of M. Coue, who
has made a favorable minression
upon British medical men, in spite
of the distressing scene caused by
an outbreak of hysteria among the
victims cf shell shock at a hospitr.1
where he was treating patients.
It is part of his theory that the
point to aim at is not the will but
the imagination, which if it take?
control makes the patient helpless
o exercise his will power- If there
is an inhibition ctf this kind it is
useless to tell him to will, this or
that, vet by subtler means a psy
chological condition may be pro
duced in which the will, whatever
that may be. will, function health

never suffered shock, can appreciate

the act in question is uncounted,
but in regard ito the particular act
fli flomnn of fear has deranged the
functioning of mind or body, and the
more strenuous the effort of the
will to make the body do its bidding,
the completer is the failure.
When the entire system has oeen
demoralized fro'm overstrain, as in
the easo of what is loosely called
shell-shock, the symptoms of this
phychic disorganization may be both
obscure and far-reaching. Limbs,

that. There is a logical basis, there

As a composer of popular operas,
Balfe is wothy of a place among
those who have done work for the mu
sical world, especially for those
lovers of music who are interested
in its English development.
Michael William Balfe was born
in Dublin, IreBand May 15, 1808. (At
the age of five he took his first les
son on the violin. He composed sev
eral numbers at this early age and
his father recognizing his latent abil
ity placed him under O'Rcarke who
brought him out as a violinist, when
he was only ten years old.
When he was sixteen his father died
leaving him to his own resources.
He went to London where he played
in an orchestra, and took lessons in
composition- Often he was called
upon to lead the orchestra. While
here he met with a patron, Count
Mazzara, whom he accompanied to
Italy. At Rome he studied under the
best teachers. At Milan where he
studied singing under Gilli he brought
forth his first work by writing the
mluaic to a ballet entitled "La Pe
rouse." The next few years were spent in
singing in Paris and Rome. It was
during this time he met and married
the German singer Mile Rosen. He
also wrote several operas but they
were only mediocre compared with
his later works.
In 1835 Balfe went to London and
began his career as an English
composer ."The Siege of Roch'elle"
at Dru'rys Lane establishe his rcpre
tation. Several operas ''The Maid
of Artos," "FRal staff," "Koelanthe"
and others were produced duiing this
In 1840 Balfe migrated to Paris
where he was graciously received by
the most fastidious audiences in Eu
rore. He returned to England and
produced the most successful of his
operas, "The Bohemian Girl." This
opera has been translated into almost
every European language, and has
been a great favorite on our side ol'
the Atlantic as on his. A number
of successful Qperas followed "The
Bohemian Girl,"
At the close of 1852 Balfe visited
St. Petersburg with an introduction
by the Prince of Russia. He was re
ceived here with popular demonstra
tions and imperial favor. " He realiz
ed more money in less time than
at any other period.
in 1869 the French version of
his "Bohemian Girl" was, produced hi
Paris. frhfc- sucess attending the
revival procured him the two fold
distinction of being made Chevalier
of the Lenion of Honor by the Em
peror of, the French and commander
of the Order of Carlos III by the Re
gent of Spain.
In September 1870 Balfe caught a
violent cold which caused a return of
his old complaint bronchitis. After a
sickness of nearly a month he expir
ed on October 20.
The most important opera of this
famous composer will be presented by
the Lenoir College Glee Club at the
City Auditorium on Friday night, at
eight o'clock. Costumes have been
rented from a firm in Philadelphia to
make the opera more effective. A
pleasant night is promised to all lov
ers of good music.

On the basis of present seivice
