190? A. E. TURNER, LL. D., LECTURER Figure Economics Education Sociology Business WHITE ENTERTAINMENT BUREAU, BOSTON The Lecturer ARCHELAUS EWING TURNER has spent his life in education. He received the A. B. degree from Lincoln (Ill.) college and three years later the A. M. For twelve years he presided over his alma mater. After a brilliant administration of Hastings (Nebr.) College, he became one of the guiding spirits of the Pennsylvania Chautauqua Association and was instrumental in developing it to its present large proportions. As an orator, he has been in great demand and at school and college commencements, in religious conventions, before commercial bodies and women's clubs, has had a wide hearing both in his own country and out of it. He was one of the leading speakers of the World Alliance of Reformed Churches in Liverpool, Eng., in 1904. During a recent Chautauqua season, on a schedule of A-especially fine, B-excellent, C-satisfactory, his rating was A-95 per cent, B-87 per cent, C-none. His academic distinctions are Sc. D., Grove City College (1903) and LL. D., Cumberland University (1906.) Possessed of charming personality, a rare gift of humor and remarkable fluency, Dr. Turner is easily a speaker of the first rank who will never disappoint an audience. The Lectures REBUILDING YOUR TOWN An analysis of the fundamental elements in the community structure, with constructive suggestions as to its improvement. Dr. Turner tells you all about it. He has isolated the germ that causes 'Communititis,' and he will give you the cure. Then if you don't want to get over it, it's up to you. His lecture is packed full of interesting information from beginning to end — replete with antidotes; also anecdotes. It is both diagnostic and remedial, iconoclastic and constructive. If any man has a grouch about his town — you haven't, of course, but you may know someone who has — get him out to hear Dr. Turner. His personality is interesting, and his style is unique, sparkling, incisive. He'll do you good. Especially adapted to requirements of commercial and social organizations. WATCH YOUR STEP An intensive study in conservation — individual, national and social, with particular reference to national needs and the present war. The speaker of the evening was Dr. A. E. Turner, a director of the Chautauqua Association and for years a college executive. His address on 'Watch Your Step,' has been delivered in scores of towns and cities in New England and it was heard in over a hundred towns on the Pacific Coast last Summer. The audience last evening was profoundly impressed by it and it would be difficult to overestimate its constructive value. A timely message for literary and educational bodies, especially in courses promoted in connection with public and private schools.
