Fletcher L. Wharton of Pitts-
burg Speaks.
At chapel yesterday morning tho
Rev. Flotcher L. 'Wharton of Pittsburg
spoke. He declarod that ho was not
much of n student, for It hnd been a
long timo slnco he attended college,
but he had been a student of life at
first hand for many years, and It was
of life that ho wished to talk.
He declared that, while perhaps we
do not realize it, the opportunities for
making tho very most of ourselvos
are far greater than have ever beforo
confronted young people. There Is not
a need of any kind or any desiro that
sohio institution does not stand ready
to supply. 'Any now thought which
anybody In tho world has, can be
found at our very doors. No matter
whore wo may wlBh to go, or what
we may wish to do tho means are all
ready. Those opportunities, so much
greater than have over boon enjoyed
In tho past, make great demands up
on utf. Great powers Ho dormant with
in us, and tho ability liejjrtwjthln us to
call Into action forces before unseen.
If wo have a deep desiro for the truth
and strong moral cdurage these un-
soen powers will develop In us and
make us able to contribute some
thing more to the advancement of tho
The Reverend Wharton declared
that one of tho greatest untruths that
has been declared In modern times
Is the Btatemont that all men are free
and equal and that thero are such
things as Inalienable rights. It Is a
principle that Is subversive of the best
things Jn modern life. It tends to
make men self supporting, a thing
which can never ho while man re

President Schurman dlffors wldoly
from Presldont Arthur T. Hadloy of
Yalo as to tho growing Importanco of
tho stato unlvorsltlcs of tho Wost.
Dr. Hadloy Is roported to have said
that , tho older Eastorn Institutions
hnve nothing to foar from pio rapid
dovelopmont of tholr Wostern slstors;
that bcauso or their ropiUatlon, stand

leges of tho East will always attract

embryonic college mon no mattor
what tho dovelopmont of tho West.
Dr. Schurman sounds an entlroly .

unlvorsltles aro rapidly dovoloplng -
and In tho number of Btudonts and
tho efficiency of Instructors tho best
of thorn aro destined at no distant
date, to lujcomo honorable rivals of
tho largor and more colobrated uni

A superficial glanco at tho statisti

in a momont the romnrkablo Increase
In sttidont population in all of these
unlvorsltles. The fact that eminent
professors from tho best of tho East
ern unlvorsltles aro frequently found
drifting westward Is brought closer
home every year. As the Instructing
staff grows stronger, the tone of the
university becomes higher, and the
t)me may Indeed come when the big
stato universities will bo supported
by faculties Just as efficient, Just as
capable and just as renowned ob most
of those' in tho East.
In order to uphold the traditional
superiority of the East it seems nec
essary that something must be done.
Yale's president' is inclined to bolittlo
tho problem and to, advocate a "lalssez '

characteristic Cornelllan, goes to the
root of the problem and offers a solu-
