October 17. STERLING DAILY GAZETTE, STERLING, ILLINOIS Page Splendid Speakers And Fine Music at Annual Institute Whiteside Teochers Hear Presidents Of Two Schools Th» annual Whiirsidr county teae-herV Institute *n< hrld in the Morrison high school Thursday with a'program in charge of County Superintendent H M Robertson, which was outstanding in even- detail. Two Instructors, both leaders in education and university president*, addressed the teacher', on «vib.iec!s which were so rompl^telv unlike that the one supplemented the other in a significant way. The Mendelssohn quartrt of Chicago entertained with a musical program the quality of which has not often bren heard in Whiteside county. Frank Bennett, w o has been the director of the Chicagoland Music Festival for a number of years, was the director of the quartet, while Earl Bichel and Lranord Ellison, who were soloists at the 1941 festival and Maldwyn Jones were also in the group. Mrs. Katheryn •Bennett was their very accomplished and gracious accompanist. Their program was spirited and full of life and color. It consisted of varied numbers by the quartet, trios, duets and solos. There was ako community singing In which everyone took part, and never before have the teachers of Whiteside county sane as they did for Frank Bennett. It was a thrilling occasion and enjoyed by everyone. Dr. I. J. Good, president of Indiana Central college. Indianapolis, Ind.. In his first address. "America at a Crossroad." spoke sincerely and without masking thr truth. His close up view of American life was a picture of a decaying nation, a picture of a prosperous people expending their energies in an easy and riotous way of living. There have been rapid changes, stated Dr. Good, in the past 30 years. Life has become easier, even average homes are filled with conveniences never dreamed of by kings in an earlier day. It Is a well known fact, stated Dr. Good, that America leads the world In crime. Horace Mann thought the answer to this problem was more education, and that when the common people were able to receive an education the crime rate would decrease. Horace Mann reasoned that to know the truth would free the people, and that knowledge of the laws would be sufficient for their enactment EsaettoM Mast Change On the contrary, stated Dr. Good. faeta have shown that .while education and knowledge have increased. th* hearts and emotions of people have not been changed. It Is evident tMat knowing the truth is not enough. Some writers, said Dr. Good, have referred to our chll- aa "these unspanked chil- >." It should now be stated, re- >joarked Dr. Good, "these unspank- ed children of unspanked parent*.* 'Dr. Good quoted President Hutchlns. of the University of Chicago, as say- "fef'that the present generation it not Immoral, but rather, It" fat un- •aontl.

Dr. A M. Harding, president of :he rn.uersi:v of Arkansas. Fayetteville. Ark . trmk as his subject. "Glimpses of Othrr Worlds" Dr. Hardine ststrd that the studv of astronomy widens the homon. establish^ 1 , the unity " of matter and God nnd does awa> wnh si! superstitions Astronomy is tlie stndr of Thf iinHerse Dr. Hardinc explained that a world \f any hea\- enly body that goes around the sun We live on one world." Thrre arr r.evrn others. Our world h~ called the earth and may be described as a little bail. 8.000 miles in diameter. but quite Insignificant in the scheme of the universe. If our earth would blow up and entirely disappear Dr. Harding said the rest of the uni- \erse. excepting our moon, would not be effected In any way. Dr. Harding further explained that there are 28 moon.s. A moon is any. heavenly body that goes around a world, and shines with reflected light from the sun. The sun, stated Dr. Harding, is the great motor", or engine. Gravitation is the gasoline. All we do or have comes from the sun. To get an idea of the vastness of the universe. Dr. Harding said that our earth, moves 19 miles a second antf makes but one trip around the sun in one year. Hence a year is a natural unit of time. In other words it is 93.000.000 miles from the earth to the sun. When studying astronomy 93,000.000 miles Is known as one unit. Then, continued Dr. Harding, when we know that every star is a sun and that our own sun is a star, and only a small one. we do begin to get a glimpse of other worlds and of the vastness of space and of the insignificance of the functioning of our own world. Dr. Harding remarked further that everyone nhould have a speaking acquaintance with astronomy. and that we cannot claim to be educated without it. An interesting side light on Dr. Harding's preparation and interest in the study of astronomy is that he has talked astronomy in every state in the Union.
