Rare lithographs based upon da-

The donor is J. E. (Lindy) Mil-

Porto Alegre in southern Brazil.
Retired now, he spends half of

Ten views of Rio de Janeiro
were photographed about 140 year
ago by the daguerrotype process.
Taken to France, which then was
the world leader in this field, the
photographs were enlarged and
lithographic stones then prepared.
One stone was prepared for each of
the 10 views, and 10 copies could
be run off before the etching in
the stone wore away. Thus, only
100 copies of the prints — 10 sets
— ever were prepared.

• All men of college age need
and can benefit from a military
educational background. Such an
education will teach a student dis
cipline in both taking instructions
and orders, and responsibility in
giving commands and then assur

The military program also allows
a student to qualify for a reserve
or active commission while still
gaining a college degree.

• Because the Corps takes so
much time from a man’s studies, it
very easily can cause a student to
develop a poor attitude toward his
academic work. He may become
prone to just get by, rather than
attempt to excell.
• When a student enrolls in a
college or university, he wants to
have the opportunity to think as
freely and act as freely (provid
ed that he stays within the bound
aries of law) as is possible that he
may seek out as much knowledge
and truth as is possible.
The Corps of Cadets, in some
instances, subjects a student to
control that hinders this freedom
