Students Rated According to Social
The fpllowlng extract from "Seeing
Boston Through a Megaphone," pub
lished in a 1907 Issue of the Ladles'
Home Journal, .Is a sainplo of George
Fitch's excellent sarcastic humor:
"Vo are now approaching Harvard
University. In it, brains and money
are more intimately acquainted than
anywhere else in the ' country. No
where . else enn you get so much
knowledge for 'so little money, or so
little knowledge for so much money.
This college can take the. sixteen-year-old
son ofn Untied States Senator
and make him so great that the Sena
tor will he known ,the rest of his life,
as tho father of Blinks, '07. Harvard
University is attended by more than
six thousand students, who pursue
knowledge with ponies, traps, four-Iu--hands,
steam yachts, and automobiles.
For all its.vast wealth it is. very demo

"two-cylinder ' runabout is received oh
just the. same terms as the student
who owns the Imported automobile. . .

Noted Minister of ffrooklyn, New York J
Gives Interesting TalkHis. Plea:
"A Fair Chance for Religion." '
"Life from tho cradlo to tho grave
is education. It is constantly seek
ing larger conquests, opening new
fields for development, and endeavor
ing to better the condition of maiu
"But wliat Is education from d prac
tical point of view? Education 1b the
power to llvq In our work. It Is !hot
the mere acquirement of a mass of
facts. Education is more than that.
It consists in fitting men to deal with
llfo as masters.
"Students como to. this university for
a specific purpose. They deslro to
excell in some one thing. It has been
said that most failures result from dis
appointed mediocrity. Tho man who
can get his chin above the level of the
common mass Is bound to succeed.
Yet I trust you also have tho real ideal
of life at heart. I trust that you
aim for something bettor tomorrow
as woll aB today.
"I believe that wo should mnko ro-
llgion a part of our higher education.
