Introduced by Dean Ward as one
who -was. a man of affairs as well as a'
professional man, Dr. Wiley first re

spoke' of the session of governors and

such gatherings as these are of in
calcuable benefit to the country at
"But," said Dr. Wiley, "one natural
resource, and one which I think the
most valuable of all, was not consld
ered at that meeting. I refer to the
young people or our country, a re
source far more valuable than any of
those considered by the Washington
conference. I am a believer in Youth.
I know the necessity of conserving the
resources of youth. Youth cannot be
entirely conserved but it can be part
ly conserved and properly utilized. It
is the object of the University to dis
cover how best to utilize the energy
"Today there are great problems
"concerning the natural resources
which are awaiting solution. The coal
supply is being, exhausted. Where will
the future Obtain its supply of energy?
Suppose the winds may be harnessed.
This Is to be expected. In any case
the exhaustion of the coal supply will
never bo allowed to stop the world's
progress. This 1b but one of the many
problems which you young people will
be called upon to solve.
