Previous to tho announcement of Dr Loland, a request was modo that at Thursday's convocation tho lowor seats of Memorial hall bo reserved for the men and tho gallery softs bo gra ciously given to tho fair co-ods.

"Trained mon," ho said, "aro want ed; they alwuys will bo wanted, for In them only can training bo found which Is commensurate with tho Intricacies of tho great rollglous and moral prob loms thnt today may result from the slightest provocation." In conclusion Dr. Lelnnd Bnld; "In stitutions of loarning should be hit In spiration to ovory young -man. Thoy should detcrmlno tho courso of young people's educational training and should so inspiro him or her with the thought of thoir obligation to the world that they can surpass all others In actual work.
