of music. His -work consisted of
compositions especially written for
the use of students of Salem Acad
emy, besides church music. Most of
these compositions displayed
property of his daughter, .viiss
Emma Leinbach. At that time Miss
Amelia A. Van Vleck was a teacher
of music (1859-1911), who composed
five marches and waltzes.
The first of the student compo
sitions is “Come Now O Lord” by
Rosa Mickey, now Mrs. Fries.

Professor Frederick Agthe (1878-
80, 1885-87), composed many songs
and anthems. Another music pro
fessor, George F. Markgraff (1886.
891), composed eleven marches for
the Salem orchestra besides several
songs. Near these musical works
placed the original manuscript of his
own outline for pupils of
titled: “How to Learn French and
German, When You Only Have the
Music Lesson for that Purpose?, To
Misses Addie Fries and F.tta Shaff-
ner.” Miss I-ouise Sidall, student of
Mr. Markgraff, and later a teacher
at Salem, composed three published
Of Mr. Charles S. Skilton’s com-1
positions, forty-one are listed. This |
c.'mposer, who taught at Salem from]
1893 to 1896, wrote songs, orchestral^
compositions, solos for the organ,
piano, and violin, and choruses. In
the library there is a copy of the
operetta, “Sigma Phi Alpha,” to
which he wrote the music and Miss
Adelaide Fries the words, and which
was presented by the students. His
instrumental music includes many se
lections based on American Indian
themes, among them four numbers
comprising Suite Primeval.
The collection of works by Char
lotte Matthewson Lockwood,
poser and concert artist, who attend
ed Salem 1920.1924, is far from
complete. There are in the library
seven arrangements for the organ of
classical compositions, i n c
Wagner’s “Valkyre.”
Dean Charles G. Vardell, the gift
ed and unassuming head of the
School of Music, has found time
busy life to compose at least
four published works besides many
ithers which were successful in con-
:ert performances. These three are

dedicated to Mrs. Vardell; “Concert

Tt was published in 1796 and used
by Anna Pauline Shober in 1805
and by Sophia A. Herman in Naz-
ereth, 1829. The book is The Ameri
can Accountant; or School Master’s

i'.itn. The book is rather difficult to
-»’ead because,the old fashioned s like

prised in four books:
Book I—Containing Arithmetic of
whole numbers, divers denomination,
and the common rules to the end of
the double rule of three.

“The whole adapted to the Com

To me the most amusing book w:
The Juvenile Speaker which w:
published in London in 1827. It co:
tains plates of gestures labeled suit
able for specific occasions accom
panying selections which are marked
as to which gestures should be used
.and as to the proper-inflection. The
gestures besides being pictured
described in detail. The selections
are from “standard” authors and are
grouped under the heading of sacred,
moral and descriptive pieces. No se
lections are contained which are cal
culated for amusement merely
“They tend only to create a taste
for what is frivolous.”

(Annual report of the National
Student Federation of
Searching questions are the fash
ion of the day. In a world where
economy reigns, every institution,
every activity, must justify itself. It
is essential that higher education be
subjected to the same skeptical
analysis as everything else. Such
analysis will have an impact on the
individual student as well as on the
system as a whole.
For the individual student the
question of the value of a college
education assumes a significance
which it has hitherto lacked. Today
education involves sacrifice, in great
er or lesser degree, for almost every
one. Until now most Americans have
jone to college because it never oc
curred to them not to; today such
luxury cannot be afforded. The
question on application blanks for
every institution in the country—
“Why do you want to go to college?”
—has at last become a question
which every student must honestly
face and for which every student
the educational system as a
whole the analysis is of equally great
iportance. Not only must each
institution offer its students the
F answering satisfactorily the
posed above. Each educa
tional institution must also justify
tself on a broad social scale. The
endowment for institutions of higher
education in this country runs into
billions; the institutions supported
by the public drain large sums from
the state treasuries. If this vast ex
penditure is wise—and we believe
it is — the educational institutions
must repay society in the only way
they can: by turning out educated
men capable of taking their place as
leaders in the life of that society.
Education has too long been taken
for granted in America. Democratic
tiieory has enshrined it as an indispu
table right; but there is no right
without duty. It is the inescapable
and solemn task of both institutions
and individuals to fulfill that duty.
