Professors Caldwell and Fling and Mr.

rtee was ono long to bo remembered
ky 'thoso who attended. Aotlng Chan
cellor A.vory prcBldod and delivered a
short prayer at the opening of tho
L Professor Caldwell wbb tho first
Speaker and told of his personal rola
lidns with Chancellor Canfleld. Ho
spoke in part as follows:
"I do not wish to troat tf Chancellor
Camfield In tho cold, historical spirit;
gather I desiro to speak of him as
.ono of tho very few men who have
won my love as well as my respect.
To mo he is over the true and faith
ful, tho friend who never deserted, the
ian ever ready to encourage, to urgo
forward to more earnest endeavor.
Dynamo of Energy.
"How I wish I had tho power to
paint him for you who never know
Im, so that you mignt understand
ho hold that ho had and has on some
of us. Chancellor Canfleld was a por-
foct dynamo of onorgy. Quick in
(movement, actlvo in mind, ho was
planning and doing with a rapadlty
that fairly took your breath. His
Stocky frame carried a heart that was
aa big and full as tho body that en
cased It Ho never forgot a friend;
nor did ho neglect tho little courtosles
of llfo that so few of us remember.
There was nothing moroBo or sour
In his make-up.
"This man inspired many; for one,
I can ay that my life has been bet
tor from contact with a man so puro
and helpful. If I have been ablo to
aid in the least in carrying forward
tho torch of learning and in inspiring
any student to higher thinking, and
more devotion to his work in life, a
part of it at least may bo credited to
this man whoso life and deeds moan
80 much to us, and whoso death we
commemorate in this service."
1 A Man of Action.
Dr. Fling spoke- informally of Chan
cellor' Canfleld, telling of hiB early life
and of hla work after ho left Ne
braska. Ho emphasized the fact that
ho was a man of action and that with
him to see was to rfct Ho spoke in
part aB follows:'
'Chancellor Canfleld was an East
ern man, although born, in Ohio. Ho
received his education in tho schools
of tho East His early life was spent
In diverse occupations but ho was ulti
mately called from other work to be
come a teacher of hiBtory and eco
nomics in tho Kansas Agricultural
school.' How did ho "prepare ''for this
work? Ho had a4 broad, foundation to
start with. He became a railroad
man, later a lawyer. When he was
called to be .a' superintendent' of
achools ,'in Michigan and from there
he was called to Kansas to take up
thb work in history and economics.
Thiswas at a time before the West

organization which they have now. He

history but ho was an inspiring load
er, a good speaker, an organlzor of
the best kind. All his life boforo was
really a preparation for hiB work
there and ho knew what such an Insti
tution should bo.
"As I came up here this morning I
was thinking how soon a man and his
work are forgotten. Tho students to
day did not seem to know that wo
wore to meet hero. However, Chan
cellor Canfleld' understood th'ia trait
of character and I do not suppose he
would bo surprised at tho small num
ber who have turned out Ho was
strong executive, Invaluable in' a
groat library. Everywhere thoso who
know him appreciated him. He did
his work because ho loved it and it
will live on. Ho was a man we might
call an Ideal typo."
Great In Any Size.
Hon. Victor Itoaowater, a former
regent of the university, said in part:
"Wo- can only measuro tho greatness'
of tho man and tho value of his work
when ho is taken from us. Had he
followed tho footsteps of his father
ho would havo been a great preapher..
Had ho remained a railroad man he
would havo become a great' railway
captain. Had he remained in tho pro
fession of law he would have been aj
great lawyer, but his work led him.'
