Central Lyceum Bureau of Chicago FRED PELHAM, Manager EAGLES PRESS EAU CLAIRE WIS. TRIBUNE BUILDING, CHICAGO JOHN W. FRIZZELL ANNOUNCEMENT Dr. Frizzell was born in the country and raised on a farm. He is strong in body and vigorous in mind. He has learned much in the school of poverty, adversity and hard work. He started out to get an education without a dollar and kept at it until he took five university degrees, all with high honors. He has given considerable attention to the problems of science, philosophy, theology and to modern social and industrial conditions. He has worked his way through many of the thought problems of the present. He is a man of strong convictions and positive beliefs. He believes in the rights of man, that the world is getting better, in the final triumph of the good. There is nothing of the pessimist about him. Nor has he any time for an idle and indifferent optimism. He is a progressive meliorist . He does not believe that everything is all right, but he does believe in working to make things better than they are. In doing this he regards the Lyceum Bureau as an important factor. He believes it has a very important mission as one of the great popular educators of the people. Mr. Frizzell likes the people, likes to talk to them, likes to make some contribution to their happiness and welfare. He has a message the people need and the people are glad to hear him. Rev. John Faville, Pevria, Jll. I have known much of Dr. Frizzell and his work for the past few years. He is a thorough student, a keen thinker, an able debater, with exceptionally strong and attractive qualities for the platform and the pulpit. As a lecturer he keeps his hearers happy with his wit; he rouses them with his oratory, and inspires them with his thought. PERSONAL AND PRESS NOTICES Rev. Wm. R. Bennett, Marion, Ind. I am pleased to know that Dr. J. W. Frizzell has decided to do some work on the Lyceum platform. I am sure that any who wish a lecture containing both entertainment and thought, can make no mistake in employing Dr. Frizzell. He is a man of fine physical presence, of broad intellect and deep research, and has ability to present great thoughts in living terms and a popular fashion. With his pleasing manner, rich voice, and vivid delivery he will satisfy the most fastidious and cultured audiences. Rev. Henry Faville, D. D., LaCrosse, Mis. Dr. J. W. Frizzell is thoroughly equipped in mind and body to deliver a large message, and with this has the earnestness and conviction that always accompanies true oratory. I know him and speak from personal knowledge and commend him most heartily to those who are arranging courses of lectures. M. U. Fenenga, Principal of North, Wisconsin Academy, Ashland, Wis. Dr. Frizzell's lectures interest, instruct and entertain. They strike fundamentals and set people thinking. His lectures to our students and teachers at Ashland have left their impress. His coming insures a full house. Rev. B. L. Breed, Menomunie, Wis. Dr. Frizzell has a way of striking a very high tone and keeping it. He is witty, keen, bright, scholarly, reverent and good, but not goody-good. All the forces of truth and right find in him a defender. All the forces of superstition and evil find in him an opponent. Eau Claire Daily Leader. Dr. Frizzell is a man who could hardly, if he tried, put anything in a common place way. He is one of the most eloquent of pulpit and platform lecturers. He appeals to the intellect, he stirs the feelings. His services are in large demand, in his own community, at important public gatherings. A rich treat is in store for those who hear him. The Democrat, Darlington, Wis. Mayor Schreiter introduced the speaker of the evening, Dr. J. W. Frizzell, who is always equal to the occasion, succeeded in covering himself with glory by his eloquent, able and impressive address. Eau Claire Daily Telegram. Dr. Frizzell possesses talent of a high order which is especially adapted to the lecture platform. In power of analysis, in generalization from details and in logical deduction he is second to none.
