Every member who can possibly attend should hear Professor Perry speak in the Union this evening. The speaker needs no introduction. Those who have had the pleasure of studying under him know his charm well. Any who heard him when he spoke in the Union last May will be glad to repeat the experience.
There are two reasons why every man should be present who can arrange it. In the first place, we have only too few opportunities to hear members of the Faculty outside of the classroom, and consequently often have a very inadequate notion of their personalities, and their abilities to be interesting apart from their regular work. And in the second place, the topic and the special work which Professor Perry has done in connection with Lincoln's life ought to bring out a good audience. Lincoln is one of those men whose lives loom larger as the perspective forms about them. And in such an essentially American University there should be enough men desirous of knowing Lincoln better to crowd the Living Room to the doors.
