dccdH and not their Intentions they
are judged, nnd bo we must do nnd
not simply dare; wo must act and
not merely intend to act. Would we
have prohibition, we must got out and
vote and not merely go to prayer
meeting. Would wo curb the power
of corporate wealth, we nuiBt elect
men who will act and not merely talk.
Would we have honesty and efficiency
In a popular government like ours wo
ourselves must stand for honesty and
"Success everywhere demands Its
price. We get what we pay for, no
more, no less. Would we have a good
brand we must pay a good price.
Would we bo great we must do great
deeds. This is nature's way and from
this law of compensation there Is no
"And so when we pray for success,
let us not do like the Pharisees, for
they make long prayers with their
tongues. Let us not lie supinely on
our backs and wish to become Theo
(lore Roosevelts or William Bryans.
Let us go out in the fields and the
markets and pray with hands and
brain. Let us eat our bread in the
sweat ,of our brow.
"The second fundamental axiom is
closely akin to the first. As In school,
so In life we must stand or fall on
our own personal worth. We cannot
j hope long to hldo our intellectual de
formities behind a Phi Beta Kappa,
or our personal worthlessness behind
a social organisation. The keen eye
oL competition will not look for our
P. B. K. or our fraternity pins. It
will pierce the superficial social garb
and search for merit, for personal
worth, for character. It will seek the
man. This has been a hard lesson
for us to learn. Wo ask for a man's
pedigree, we want to know his brand
of 'small talk.' We inquire about his
social complexion. This, if carried
too far Is a fundamental error. The
question that confronts us In competi
tive society is neither of what social
organizations aro We members nor
what did our grandfathers do. The
world will not care whether wo were
members of the White Cowl, or the
Wooden Sphinx. It will not ask
whether our grandfathers smoked the
Hemy George or the Tom Moore. The
question that we must answer is,
What can wo ourselves do; what Is
our merit? Why, then, should we
brag because our folks were wlso if
we ourselves are lacking In wisdom?
Why claim credit because they were
honest and upright, If wo ourselves
aro not exact in our dealings with our
fellows? Why boast of their, money
if when loft to oursolves we go pen
niless. The shrowd business man will
not ask for our pedigrees; they will
not ask If our grandfathers cuffed
their trousers at the bottom; they
will ask for no mysterious handgrip;
they will look for no skull and qrpss
bones on our cuff buttons; they will
call for no scars of social vaccination,
they will call for the scars of honest
toll. And so when we judge a man
wo too ought to look beneath the
superficial fabric. We should look for
fitness, for Intellectual development,
for charactor and for that heaven
born gift of sympathy. "Wo shonld
know of no distinction but the dis
tinction of merit, we should recognize
no aristocracy but the aristocracy of
"This idea of sympathy -nnd W
vice, it is truo, appeals to, the heart
rather than to the head.' It Is nour
ished by the soul rather than by the
Intellect, We hear It gently whis
pered as we surrender our spirit nnd
lend n listening oar to music. We
feel it stealing upon us as wo behold
some wondrous work of art. Wo re
call it as we read the musical truths
in poetry. It dawns upon ub, too, as
wo Btop some quiet night and in silent
thought behold the1 vast star-lit sky,
or again, as Home beautiful morning
In spring we- forget ourselves amidst
the grandeur of Nature's works. It
is brought to our ears by the rustle
of the leaves and the twitter of tho
birds; It is heard In the murmur of
the brookB and sensed In. the fra
grance of the Hower8. The head sur
rei ders to the heurt and tho saui
apoakB forth Tn response. It is tho
sense of oternal harmony which In
tellect alone is powerless to give.
True education, then, is a develop
ment of the heart as well as the head.
We must learn to sympathize with
our fellows. We may know literature,
botany, zoology, astronomy; wo may
be able to observe the pseudopodla
of the amoeba and to describo the
clllla of the Paramecium; wo may
know tho orbit of the moon and the
size of the sun and still be the mean
est of ,men. The scientist in his
science madness and the linguist In
hi j language madness may bo as far
fioni the Ideal as the multi-million-aire
in his monoy madness. But
where we find true education whore
head and heart cooperate, where in
telligence and sympathy blend, the in
dividual is happy because of his op
portunity to live, love, work, and
serve, and the community In which
he lives Is happier and better because
of his exemplary life and efficient ser
vice. "Fellow classmates, we stand in the
twilight of our college day; our di
rect connection with the University
is soon at an end, but our tale is not
yet told. Let us make our own des
tiny. We live In an age and In a coun
try whore wo need recognize the di
vide right of neither king nor czar.
We need worship at tho shrine of no
aristocracy. Governments, kingdoms,
principalities and powers aro but the
Instruments of men and through them
the Individual may If he will assort
his divine right to practice the lesBoii
which our Alma Mater has taught us
to strive for this bucccsb which de
pends on hard work and for this worth
which depends on capacity for useful
ness. Let us make the most of our
opportunity. While here we have re
ceived and we have been ministered
unto. Now wo are ready for the
higher office; wo aro ready to give, ',
to minister. And so when our college
doors close behind us an tithe gaififil
of a new life swing open, lot us lift
our -flag to this loftier height; let us
dedicate our lives to useful service."
