FOOTBALL CAPTAIN SUSPENDED.
Keforu a fairly large audience, Chan
cellor W. J. Davidson of Wcsloyun
UitiverBity nddreBsod atudontB of the
university at convocation today on
'UeligiouB Services." J
Tho purposo of Professor Davidson'
ucAure wub to classify university stu-
dents. not as" to clasB, rank or stand
ing, but ns to the direct motives which
actuated thece students to attend an
.ducational institution. In concise
language and in all sincerity he de
clared it to bo utter folly for a stu
dent to attend the unlvorsity under
the impression that the collego has a
'cut and dried" education, which, upon
roqudst, will permeate the innermost
ptirts of the dullest brain. Ho also
branded the Btudent who assigns to
himself tho parasitic function of "crib
bing" as a "despicablo leach sucking
tho life blood from hlB own arteries."
Jn brief, Professor Davidson said:
'Wo often hear college student
npokon o falling into four distinct
and separate classes freshman,
sophomore, Junior and senior but I
like to think of theso students as fall
ing into different kinds of classes of

Is certainly something beautiful in
Mich a conception, but like all other
beautiful droama. there must be an
oh(T without realization.
"Again, , tlu-ro aro those who look
upon college education as an incompr
honsiblo thing worthy to bo sought foi
Its own Bake. ' Such a ono expatiates
upon tho beauties of college Hfo, its
dazzling social functions and so on
but ho never stopB to conBidor tho ben
jilts that ought to accrue from a co1
logo education and which ho migl'trnt
some future time pons on to a mu-p
"Another typo of studont consist of
those who attend college bocauso they
are sent. Thoy havo no purposo in
view, no aim in Hfo, and - their np
paront doslre is to harmoniously obey
A Third Class.
"Again thero ar6 thoso who com
poso tho 'lean to' class. Thoy contin
ually 'leau' on other students for pup
port, and thus far have, never realized
that mental as well as muscular force
can bo developed. Thoy aro purely
uarowitic in tholr. wholo mako-up, and
as n leech they, are sucking the life
blood from their- own, arteries.
"Lastly, wo find the class of stu
dents that get the moat out of Hfo.
Why? -Merely because thoy put the

tion of contributing from their store
of knowledge to the Ignorant world.,
Thoy havo already .mastered some .of

"Every college Is obligated to give
students' some vision of life problems,
and tho achoot that fails to do this
falls in every thing. Wo ofton find
students, good students, who at the
