CoMlliilied from fiagp 1 n \i >di !it'- wurk to identify "ays and means fur duing the job more ef- ririi'ntly, t3r. Bogui' explained. "This is one reason wh.v ii good many business and Industrial concerns offer prizes and promotions to employes wlio make suggestions for improvements of machines and Work simplification. . . Imagination is the practical force behind the great work of art, architecture, literature and the humanities which have enriched the life and culture of the ages." Integrity is the thumb of the five fingers In Bogue's Illustration. Closing the thumb over the other four finger.i. Bogus continued, "we naturally bind them together to make .1 fist, compact and strong, n unified striking force. In the personal abilities wc are talking about, the quality of integrity Is the binding power for all other nccesaary abilities . . . Integrity Is the quality of being complete, whole and unified in personality and character. "DESTROY THESE qualities," Bogue concluded, "and the results are disintegration of both personal and social unity and strength." This is the fifth of 10 commencement speaking engagements, Dr. Bogue has given in Iowa and Minnesota during a two-week period. Some of the accomplishments of the junior college system, he said In nn interview Thursday are that they are providing teacher to fill the many vacancies In schools, they give more students the opportunity to continue school after high school graduation and in junior college there is not such a great adjustment as in a large school.

A multitude thought they might have some voice us to who should be the Democratic presidential choice. They weren't given that opportunity. "I feel that inasmuch us the convention made an affirmative vote on an unlnstructed delegation ihoj certainly should liave been given an opportunity to express their individual preferences. I think that the average American has developed a gn;at amount of Iriterest in the political picture. And ecrtaln- ly the railroading that was done in our convention doesn't help to promote that interest. "It has been an extremely interesting campaign. I certainly \-alue higlily the numbei- of friends I have been able to make.
