of the university. It seems to mc that their influence in
general should he toward creating such a sentiment among
the people and lawmakers of the state as shall remove to a
great extent the limitations put upon its management hy the
political character of its establishment and nmiuleuiiui'c.
The people of Nebraska must he made to take pride in their
leading educational institution and he ambitious for its
superiority. The prejudice against high salaries must he
removed in order that the university may obtain and retain
the services of at lcasla few men who can build up depart
ments of national reputation. I believe this can be done.
I believe the state is entering upon a new line of prosperity,
and that frank and earnest work among the people and the
legislatois of the state will bring to the university such sup
port as it needs. I hope, too, that the day is not far distant
when the alumni will be abl to originate and in a great
measure provide endowments lor certain chairs which will
thus have the means of rapid and certain progress.
The broad minded and earnest student, coming now from
the university dominated by high ideals and filled with ambi
tion and energy, is to be congratulated that he enters pro
fessional or political life at a time like this. It is a time ol
social revolution through political m-:ans. New political
lines arc forming on broader issues of humanity than ever
before in history. At other than these transition periods the
new recruit in political life finds only a great machine, con
trolled by mercenary and selfish hands Advancement comes
to him only hy way of tt rdy reward for long and subservient
labor as a part ol the machine, service that requires the sac
rifice of much of independence and not a little of manhood;
but when old parlies arc going to pieces and new ones are
crystaluing around issues that throb with life, fresh vigor,
earnest enthusiasm and high ideals arc at a premium, leader
ship comes by merit, and manhood finds its hue level. In
the new movement the alumnus will act an important part,
for its slienglh will be in the true culture whose aim is moral
To all the alumni of the university of Nebraska at home
and abroad, I send fraternal greeting. The coming years
arc, through them, for the university and for the state.
