THE SATURDAY MORNING COURIER
(Written for Tim Colhikk.)
O one who ruo tho slightest atton

twenty-fifth anniversary of tho
Ubljshtnent 'fif the University of No-
broskR, which wus ho conspicuously sue
cetaful, could huvo failed to be Impress

of tho chancellor. HIh influence wbb

Chancellor Cantield has not escaped
criticism. No man who obeys Longfcl-
lows injunction and Becks to escapo
fmm the ranks of dumb, driven cattle,
free from the shafts of enmity, or
and thojols"bncd darts that are
thrown nrornbJuuously by little people.
Men altjras want a leader; b(ut when tho
leader appears cavil must needs 'come
also. I do not mean to infer (hat Chan.
cellor Can Hold has provoked any serious
l opposition, or that thoro is any consider-

he came to Lincoln lie has proceeded to

PUid not always with tho greatest regard
Iftror conventional precedents. Ho has in-
Vfused a wonderful energy into every do
W partment of tho university, and has seen
r a his labor bear fruit.
I A progressive, aggressive man, ho has
hitched' his wagon to a high star, and
it would be very surprising indeed if ho
had escaped criticism. Tho, man who
goes through life and escapes criticism
jfdght much more profitably have re
4inained unborn. Ho is of no uso in tho
mworld. Thoro aro two kinds of criticism,
honest and dishonest. Ono is tho ingen
ious expression of an intelligent, hon
est opinion, and the other is really no
Wwriticism Hi al). Jt is merely the ,vehi

Jl "Tho chancellor puts himself forward,
3 a great deal," is a remark , sometimes
I heard. Ho does. What of it? Is he to
' secrete himsclMn some obscure cloister
of tho univorsity,HfnJlowing the example
of too many educators! and exhibit him
self before the publiogaze at very infre
quent intervals as an oGject! of curios
ity? Is ho to shut himself .out of Jhe
world, and shut the world out of tho
university, and conduct the institution
on monastic lines? Is ho to allow him
self to be disqualified for his important
poeitlou.bfburylng himself in tho cob
webs and dust of his sanctum, and grad
ually become encrusted with ancient
V forms and filled with ohsoletp ideas? Or

People complain sometimes of the
lack of practicability in the present sys
tem of college and university education,
and no doubt justly. One reason for
the condition that makes such a com
plaint justifiable is tho fact that in so
many instances college professors are
nothing more nor less than book worms
alive to the nicities of differential cal

or tho fecundity of philology, or tho

of the world of to-day. Their ideas go

Tho chancellor is a scholarly man I
think no one will question his Intel-
f,'lectus ospabllityj'and tyot-ho' is singu
larly successful in avoiding tlie pedagogic
characteristics that wo are so accus
tomed to seeing. He is more liko bis
feljow men than any professor I know.
We say of a man that he is in hhvele-
ment In this or that occupation or func-1
tion. Chancellor Canfiold Is always in i
his clement- and this Is what makes i
him a remarkablo man. His versatility
and adaptability aro extraordinary. If
ho is in Ids element In tho class room, ho
is equally in hip element In tho great
business office of the university, where '
ho llnds pleasuro in assuming respon
sibility anil (wrforming hard manual
laborj and I am sum that those who '
have had tho pleasuro of hearing his
witty remarks at tho banquet table or
his addresses fmm tho public platform
will testify that ho is happily at home in I
both of these places. In fact I do not .
know of any reputable place where ho
cannot gq and appear at ease and acquit
himself creditably, or of any undertak
ing in which he could not successfully
engage. Tho rough edges, if any thoro I
were, havo lieou knocked off him; tho
dust of tho study is not ohserviihlo--contact
with the world and his nervous
activity keeps him clear fmm this. He
is warm blooded and enthusiastic with
enough self restraint to keep him on
this sido of the border of crankdom.
It is not my desire to bo laudatory,
but simply to give tho chancellor his
duo credit. Ho has his weaknesses.
Ho is a man. Ho is tremendously ambi
tious. Tremendously is a strong word;
but it docs not overstate tho truth.
And this ambition leads him to under
take moro than ho ought to perform;
albeit ho docs not attempt moro than ho
carries out. Ho wants things well done,
and this desire, quickened by his intense
nervous energy urges him to do many
things that ho ought to leave to his
subordinates. Energy Is wasted on
small details that ought to bo reserved
for larger and moro imtiortant things.
Somebody has said that ho is tho great
est executive who makes thoso who uro
under his control rcliovo him, satisfactor
ily, of tho greatest amount of work. Chan
cellor Cantlcld does not carry out this
idcu. Not content with planning and
directing, ho must also got down among
tho workmen and put his own shoulder
to the wheol. Thoro can bo no doubt
that ho Injures hiniBelf by too clone ap
plication to comparatively unimportant
It isn't an easy matter to distinguish
between cuubo and effect here. Whether
tho chancellor has bocoino nervous

himself, or whether nervous energy is an
original characteristic and that it is this
very thing that causes him to attempt
so much more than ho ought, is not very
