GOVERNOR SPEAKS ON
-VALUE OF SERVICE
3TATE EXECUTIVE GIVE8 AD
ORE88 AT CONVOCATION.
MATERIAL WEALTH NOT A SUCCESS
In Germany Men Aro Taught the In
significance of Private Interests
When Compared With
Governor A. C. Shallonborgcr gave
an nddrosa at convocation yesterday.
If attendance Is to bo taken as a
criterion for judging tho university
student appreciation of a visit by the
stato chief oxecutive, the governor
may consider his mcBBago and his
time well repaid.
In the course of his lecture, Govor
'nor Shullonberger sovercly censured
citizens of the United States for one
thing an inability or refusal to rec
ogoo the value of public service. He
emphasized tho facts that wo owe
moro to our state than to ourselves;
that wo attribute too much attention
to .the accumulation of tho dollar, and
as evidence of this evil in other coun
tries, he cltod Germany's attempt to
initiate this policy of subordination of
private to -public interests Into all lier
state Institutions. Ho doomed It es
sential that we stimulate and develop
a certain spirit of American patriotism
nnd Impress the obligation of render-'
Ing lndlvldual'servlces to our country.
He also robuked American people for
submitting and yielding themsolvcs to
tho politicians' appeal to public sontl
ment otherwise public prejudice
thereby causing all reform measures
to die a promature deuth.
Ability to Think.
In brlof, Governor Shnllenborgor
said: "Tho thing of paramount Impor
tance among the numerous things
which wo attempt to learn during our
university career is the anility to
think. Tho majority of us have a
jtrxngconcej)tlQnjof what suocesB
really Is. Wo haven't been taught to
perceive Into tho future and know that
tho accumulation of dollars ai)d mate-
t rial wealth is not success in fact, It
Is an insignificant factor In the field of
uctlvltlqs which properly make ono
successful. One thing abovo ull that
most of us lack is a truo realization of
the value and dignity of public ser
vice the voluntary service of an Indl-
' virtual dlrectod toward tho betterment
of his country.
One thing that we all prldo our-
solvos In is our origin. Every ono
points to his ancestors ub evidence of
his worthiness. I, like you, exult In
this peculiarity. My ancestors woro
all farmers. . First In Pennsylvania,
and from there tney may be traced to
the slopes of tho Alps, all as poor as
the crags upon which they clung-but
, frpo. Thoywere as independent as
Iho birds that fly; they briwod tp.no
autocrat; thoy -knew no aristocracy.
Friends, think what It means to live
as theso people lived; to throw off
the . sovereign shackles, to. enjoy free,
dom of speech, politics, and-religion.
Who wouldn't bo proud of such a fam
ily troo? Who wouldn't cry-out for
Immunity from royal ancestry?
.'i?..Jtw1cj vnn' dnn't nnnrfflntn
fyouth. You have an innate desire to
grow up;, to have responsibilities
thrust upon you; to bo wealthy ; to be
successful. You forgot that the two
ifilervcpnd'ltlons ore not synonymous,
Wealth Is not success. Gentlemen, af
ter due consideration, which ond of
ypu.wpujd change places today with
Rockefeller, Carnegie and other of our
consplcuoiitf conglomorators of the al
mighty dollar? 'He, who would has no
plage in an Institution of learning.
Condition In Germany,

insignificance of private interests
when compared with public Interests,

"Another of tho great evils of tho
American Btato is tho willingness' of
Amorican citizens to yield to tho ap
peal of polltlclanB-thoroby cauBhTg
public prejudice against tho beneficial
movements. Truth, gentlemen, will
always triumph but not necessarily
until tho end. Because of this, poli
ticians have bo formulated their pub
lic speeches that public projudico has
destined a Waterloo for overy reform

because of public projudico.
