Doforc an unusually lnrge number of
students Professor If. W. Caldwell at
convocation yestordny morning discus
sed (ho question of "Environment and
Public Opinion." Ho look tho view
that public opinion largely results
from environment and gavo ninny his
torical illustrations of UiIb. He spoke
in part as follows:
"This subject is a vory large ono
and wo can only lllustrato it, rather
than develop it. Tho formation of
public opinion Is vory hard to trace.
It Ih tho result of growth extending
through" a period of many years. For
a short tlmo It represents sentiments
and then It passes away and other
opinions develop. Tublic opinion may
bo of various kinds. It may bo local
public opinion. If it is It will develop
faster and paBsos away more quickly.
It may be sectional nB In tho caso of
slavery. It may bo national and bo
conio the dominating factor in nations'
politics. It may evon become of in
ternational scope.ns represented at tho
prcBont time by tho international in
terest in armed peace. A public opin
ion may develop very rapidly and
quickly disappear, but such a Bontl
ment Is not really public opinion.
Comes Through Evolution.

dominating the present moment. Con-,
slderlng environment and its forces
we Hnd that there are two: the physi
cal and the social. By the first Is
meant the Influence of tho soli, climate
and other geographical conditions in
fluencing tho development of man, and
giving direction to the opinion of the
"people. Thus we Bee tho people who
have lived in mountainous regions de
veloping strong liberty loving charac
teristics. The western people of the
plains where we see social co-ordination.
Each section develops their own
characteristics and points of vlow. So
cial environment consists of acquired
I "It is interesting to speculate on tho
comparative strength of those influ
ences. Somo hold that tho Boclal en
vironment is tho result of the physical
environment. On this basis many hold
that we are guided by the laws of na
ture. "We will take some historical ex
amples to shed light on this question.
In tho United States has democracy
become to prevail because of the na
ture of our frontiers? Our frontier
mon have loft their . traditions and
hopes to their ancestors to be perpetu-
Mtod-and carried out. On tho coast
conditions wore such that democracy
also became a trdlt of those living
there. Considering the process of
emancipation during tho Civil war.
The pooplo of tho north and south
woro practically tho same and both
wore dominated by liberty loving prin
ciples. Yot in tho north whoro the
number of slaves was small tho spirit
qf llborty emancipated them, whllo In
tho south, whoro tho number was largo
the same principle kept tbom In bond
"We will consider the change of the
south toward slavery, 'in 1770 it was
considered by all to be an evil forced
on them by England. In 1820 the south
called it a necessary evil which meant
quite a transition of public opinion.
This was duo to the Spread of cotton
territory because of the wide cultiva
tion of tho shortstaplo cotton which
greatly extended the Industry and de
manded slave labor. In 1830 to quote
Calhoun, slavery was 'a good, a posi
tive good.' Property and business was
now centered about slavery.
Effect of Environment.
"The south held the formation of tho
union to bo a compact and emphasized
tho will of tho minority. This was be
cause their population was decreas
ing relatively with that of tho north
and deBlred community supremacy.
The question of tho equality of races
arose from 1865 to 1870. In 1868 we
see the first signs of this foeling in
tho treaty made between tho United
States and China. Again the equali
ty of tho races was emphasized In the
thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth
amendments. Thus wo see that the
spirit of preserving the nation had
.given rise to the common belief in tho
equality of races and mado humanity
and not rnco tho dominating thought.
"If tho stnto has como to believe
that man bears during his later life
the works of his oarly environment,
the stnto has tho right to prohibit
what it pleases. The Btate la tho
means through which public sentiment
must be expressed.
