[graphic][merged small]

has opened in its second year with thirty-nine students, over three-fourths of whom are college graduates.

The situation of the school in the heart of the Wall Street district, New York City, at No. 42 Broadway, makes it convenient to students connected with the important law offices. and accessible to all the lines of transportation converging in and reaching to and from the city.

The faculty comprises seven professors, and as the number of students is relatively small, personal attention can be given to the needs of each member of the classes.

The case system of instruction is followed, and the books adopted are practically those used at the Harvard Law School. The work assigned is sufficient, if the student is in a position to give his undivided attention to the law, to occupy all his time. At present the course covers twelve hours' weekly instruction, and it requires three years to obtain the degree of LL.B., and a fourth year to attain that of LL.M.

It is the aim of the sonen: '** **!!ate frumoni anyons, and quality then for the conduct of public affairs for the proper auministration of which a knowledge o law is essential. The school arcords a thorough philosophical and scientific education in th common, statutory, and public law of the United States and England and their aystems Q Equity Jurisprudence; and will, from the year 1907-8, provide courses in the Civil apk Roman Law as administered in the recently acquired Colonies.

The members of the faculty are: Rev. Daniel J. Quinn, 8,J., President; Paul Fuller Dean of the Law School; Rev. T. J. Bhealy, 8.J., Professor of General Turisprudence Francis Pope, LL.M., Professor of Law and Seoretary of the Faculty; Ralph H. Holland A.B., LL.B., Professor of Law; H. Gerald Chapin, LL.M., Professor of Law; Francis Ray mond Stark, Ph.D., LL.B., Professor of Law; J. E. Corrigan, A.B., LL. B., Professor a Law; Ralph W. Gifford, A.B., LL, B., Professor of Law.

Special lectures will be given by the Hon. Mongan J. O'Brien, Presiding Justice, Appel late Division (First Department) of the Supreme Court, a graduate of Fordham University o '72; and by Frederick R. Coudert, the latter being the special lecturer on Constitutional Law

The system, followed in the Law School is believed to be absolutely the best. Thi professors assign readings from text books, which students are expected to study thoroughly The lecturers review the matter embraced in the text books and point out the practica application of the principles treated. "Quiz'' classes are held under an efficient "quiz master. Students thus have three opportunities to familiarize themselves with each topi treated in the counse; by stivay, of texi books, by discussion in lectures, and by practically applying in the "quiz'' the principles acquired.

The degree of Bachelor of Arts is conferred at the end of the course if the candidate has passed successfully all the examinations, and has given evidence of good moral char aoter. Graduates may, in the post-graduate course, pursue the higher studies, and, at the end of the year, receive the degree of Master of Arts. This degree. also, may be conferred on graduates after two years of professional study. The degree of Bachelor of Science is conferred in the non-classical course,

Fordham has been foremost among Catholic institutions in promoting athletics that really benefit the student, not harm him. Football, a rough, dangerous sport, has beer kept in the background. while baseball, handball, running, leaping, and tennis have beer encouraged. The athletic field at Fordham extends over ten acres, and is splendidly equipped for all sports. A running track, a baseball field, with a commodious grandstand handball courts, and lawn tennis grounds afford the students ample facilities for healthfu exercise. During the baseball season of 1905 the 'Varsity team played on its own ground: some of the best university and college teams in the country and won a very large propor tion of its games. The Junior Hall team was equally successful. Students have won medals in the various athletic Club and inter-scholastic games held in the vicinity of the metropolis

CONSERVATORY OF MUSIC

A Story of Marvellous Achievement-One of the Most Brilliant in America's

Musical History.

C

INCINNATI is widely known as a centro of culture in both music and art. The story of the Queen City's great progress in music

really dates back to the Winter of 1867 when a brave little wonian, without financial resources, but rich in faith and with a sublime devotion to a newborn cause, dedicated the Cincin. nati Conservatory of Music to the world of melody. Miss Clara Baur has seen her ideal realized to the fullest measure of success, and this wonderful woman, with courage, pluck and knowledge that proved a better foundation for enduring success than an endowinent fund, is still Directress of the institution, which ranks best in America, and one that adheres in all its departments to the methods of the foremost European authorities. From the moment of the inception of that movement for Greater Musical Culture, Cincinn ii has progressed steadily and the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music has, under Miss Baur's direction, widened its circle of influence until there is not a State to-day that has not profited by the culture of its graduates. Among the thousands enrolled during all these years of musical activity there have gone out those who have won renown in the drama, in opera, on the concert stage, and as instructors in all the branches taught in music, elocution and the languages. The Cincinnati Cinservatory of Music has played a signal part in the development of musical culture in America, and its enthusiastic founder

without deviating one iota from her ideal. without one dollar of endowment, upheld alone by that high devotion which is the mainstay or the true disciple of any cause ---ihas seen its fame increase until it has transcended the bounds of our own country and is known in all the musical centres of the world.

Such, in brief, has been the life-work and triumphs of one American woman-Clara Baur. In the highlands of Mt. Auburn-away from the bustle and hum of the city and yet within a few minutes' trolleying distance of its heart—the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music offers the greatest opportunities for musical education, with all the beautiful surroundings of a country manor.

In the organization of the faculty the Conservatory has drawn upon all the world for talent. The musical atmosphere of the famed schools of Berlin, Leipzig, Brussels, Hamburg, Paris, Vienna, London and Milan is found within its walls-brought by those grounded in the principles of music at European centres of the art divine. Advantages on a par with the best European models, home comforts and an environment of refinement are ever-present factors in the popularity of the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music. 'The Conservatory is complete in all its departments voice, piano, organ, violin, harp. violoncello, in all other orchestral instruments, theory and composition, chorus classes. ensemble classes and all others that make up the curriculum of study in the most comprehensive plan of teaching.

Miss Baur, an exponent of the Stuttgart Conservatory of Music and of the old Italian school, stands herself at the head of the department of Vocal Culture, supported by the most efficient corps of instructons. Vocal Culture is divided into five grades. The first lessons are in breathing, tone production, easy singing and progress, step by step, to the rendition of complete operas.

From one of the greatest of musical centres the Conservatory has drawn the famous violinist and composer, Chevalier Pier Adolfo Tirindelli, who was a director in the conservatories of Milan and Venice, Importuned to return to those conservatories and knighted by the King of Italy, he elected to remain with the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music. During the summer vacation for five years Sig. Tirindelli held the position of Concert-Meister of the Royal Opera at Covent Garden, London, His reputation is international and he possesses the valued faculty of bringing out all the talent that is in a student and developing this talent in the pr)per direction.

[graphic]

Miss Baur has surrounded herself with many others of renown and recognized ability.

Mr. Hans Richard, Pianist, has brought into the Conservatory the methods in which he was schooled by his aunt, Miss Sophia Richard, a pupil of the great Lebert. of the Stuttgart Konservatorium, and Anton Rubinstein. Mr. Richard is a native of Zurich, Switzerland. At the Conservatoire de Bale he was one of the class of Dr. Hars Huber, the composer, and his success was such that, indorsed by Eugen d'Albert, he entered without the usual obligatory examination, the master classes of Alfred Reisenauer at Leipzig. Going to Paris as the pupil of Raoul Pugno, he made such an impression upon the master that he rose from the rank of pupil to that of colleague. His triumphs in Europe are musical history, but he left that continental concert field to accept Miss Baur's call to become a member of the faculty of the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music.

Mr. Freder Shaller Evans, Pianist, has for eighteen years given his talent and personality to the Conservatory. New York critics have been eloquent in their praise of him. The New York Evening Post says: "His style is refined, phrasing clear, and his execution all that can be desired of a virtuoso, While the New York Musical Courier declares: "He is a teacher whose claim to fame is reached not only by his individual talent but by the success of his pupils." His masters were Weidenbach, Jadaissohn and Reinecke.

Mr. Douglas Boxall, Pianist, is a native of London and a graduate of Dulwich College and the Guildhall School of Music, where he was a pupil of Francesco Berger and Emil Bach. He s'ibsequently went to Vienna and for four years was a pupil of Leschetizky. He has concertized in England, France, Belgium, Germany and in America, being accorded recognition everywhere as a pianist of rank and distinction.

Numbered among other distinguished members of the faculty are Theodor Bohlman, Pianist; Bernard Sturm, the celebrated Violinist; Juius Sturm, widely known as Cellist, and who also holds the position of principal 'Cellist in the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra; Miss Ida Lichtenstadter. Concert Pianiste, who was a pupil of the great master, Leopold Godowsky of Berlin; and Mr. Wilhelm Kraupner, Pianist, a pupil of Alfred Reisenauer. Mr. Louis Schwebel, Pianist, is a native Cincinnatian. He received his first musical training at the Cincinnati Conservatory under Theodor Bohlman, spent five years in Europe attending the Royal High School in Berlin, and enjoyed the rare privilege of studying with the celebrated maestro, Vladimir de Pachman. Declining many flattering offers, he returned to his alma mater.

The courses of study at the Conservatory of Music meet the needs of pupils of from six years upward. The Elementary Department provides a good foundation, for without it no high degree of art or knowledge can be attained. In the Preparatory Department

a

[graphic]

careful study of the rules of technique and theory are taken up with the intellectual training, through which the student learns to grasp the spirit of composition. The Normal Department provides complete training for the profession of teaching. From this department the Cincinnati Conservatory has sent students to fill positions as in. structors in colleges, normal schools, and other institutions from Maine to California.

The Artist Department is reserved for those who have attained to the higher qualifications of a musician and who desire to develop the sense of the beautiful in music to the highest degree, and to blend with the beauty and strength of master work the individuality and originality of the player's own self.

Church music. is given a department to itself, to the end that sublime melodies. enfoded in the sacred works of the great masters, may rise heavenward from devout hearts in beautiful harmony. Much attention is paid to Elocution, Dramatic Art and the Languages.

Diplomas are granted to students who have successfully completed the full course: certificates to those who have finished a prescribed course in any one branch, and testimonials to deserving students who study for a shorter peri id. Students may enter at any time. and any further information can he had

by addressing the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music, Miss Clara Baur, Directress, Highland Avenue, Oak Street and Burnet Avenue, Cincinnati, Ohio.

The Conservatory draws its pupils not from Cincinnati and Ohio alone, but every State in the Union sends its quota of the musicvlly amhiivis, who find in this country home in a great city all the requisites for a higher musical education, surrounded by the most beneficent influences.

FOR YOUNG LADIES

NASHVILLE, TENN.

E

Situated in a uniddle latitude there are no extremes of neat and cold in Nashville, so that in point of healthfulness and social culture the environment of Ward Seminary has no equal in the South. The siandard in selecting teachers is first, charaater, and then scholarship and fitness. The Seminary is one Christian household; it is non-sectarian. It is found that kindness and confidence are more efficacious than stringent rules. The President and most of the teachers live in the Seminary, in close contaat with the pupils, and particular attention is paid to the cultivation of courteous deportment and social etiquette. There are entertainments for relaxation; the performances of the most celebrated singers, pianists, lecturers and readers being accessible to the students. Then there are visits to the numerous points of historical interest surrounding Nashville, and excursions extending to Washington and to Cuba are arrarged by the Seminary management. The Seminary buildings are extensive and handsome, lighted with electricity, heated with steam, and provided throughout with hot and cold water. By a special process of filtration and boi!ing the absolute purity of the drinking water is ensured. The bedrooms are large and well ventilated and comfortably furnished. Pupils have access at all times to the bath rooms, furnished with porcelain-lined tubs and supplied with hot and cold water. Indoor gymnasiums with bowling alleys and instruction in physical culture, a table with the best that the market can afford to nourish a brain-taxed body, and a uniformity of students' dress which prevents unpleasant rivalries, are among the many other important features that may be added to those already mentioned. Summed up, Ward Seminary is a perfect educational home for young ladies with all that this term signifies, and its management solicits investigation along these lines to the very fullest extent.
