Mr. Mullen stated that one thing is

Joe iiuckins who was here a few

when he advocated a hotel of not less
than 12j rooms and this suggestion
seems to meet with the hearty ap-

ever are not sharply marked in i l).-ir
boundaries. One does not K t j

changes are gradual.
This unrest and change is present
in educatiim as in oilier social activi-
ties and to education is heini? nut the
