THE CHANCELLOR AT WILLIAMS.
No educational representative ever sent by
the West to the East has received such a
flattering ovation as was paid to Chancellor
Jas. H. Canfiold at Williams College last
month. We quote the following from The
Churchman as but a fair sample of the trib
utes of honor and admiration that were p'aid
to the Chancellor by all the leading journals
in the East.
"The special address of the whole oc
casion was by Chancellor Jas. H. Canfiold,
of Nebraska. Never, perhaps, has a simi
lar paper been received with so marked dem
onstrations of interest and delight. The
idea of the development of the individual
man was strongly brought out as the leading
result of William's work. The value of man
as more than than that of things was on
forced; the building of character was to be
an aim that must not give place to the
trivialities that belong to the mechanical and
material sphere of thought and action. Mr.
Canfiold overflowed with wit and good hu
mor, while he showed the earnestness of a
spirit consecrated to a holy purpose."
From time to time great men have come
to us from afar, and have told us of the
greatness of the East, but someway wo have
felt very content with the greatness we have
among us. In all these lectures that we
now recall we have thought the man who in
troduced the speaker a bettor orator and
a more finished scholar thau the speaker
of the occasion. It seems that now other
and more competent judges have recognized
this fact, and wo have a right to feel an hon
It is perhaps true that a prophet is never
quite so much of a prophet in his own coun
try as he is when he goes visiting, but it is
true only because any very great amount of
visible or audible hero worship from the
prophet's daily followers would be burden
1 some to him and to them, and would mako
distant and trained that relationship whose
beauty is in its simpleness and directness.
We are not a demonstrative people in the
West, and when wo admire any one very
much wo are always a little ashamed of it
and are not sure it is the proper thing to do.
We are not given to ovations, and would not
know how to make them if we were, but we
all of us felt a few inches tailor the day the
Chancellor got homo from Williams.

Pace won the toss and took the ball;
Denver chose the west goal, having the ad
vantage of the wind and sun. Nebraska
started the game with her usual checker
board, Pace carrying the ball, and gained
twelve yards. Then that coy creature, Miss
Flippin, glided around the right end for
another yard. The Yonts kept steadily
going in for good gains; J. G. Yont made
the nerviest play of the game by breaking
through the lino for forty yards. Nebraska
lost the ball on four downs. Field punted
for sixty yards, the junior member of the
Yont aggregation caught with a gain of fif
teen vards. Pace sent the Yonts around the
ends for gains of two to five yards. By this
time Nebraska was nearing Denver's goal.
Pace then sent Flippin, Nebraska's ava
lanche, full and fair against Denver's line.
Nebraska scored a touchdown, Paco missing
a difficult goal.
Denver started with a fiying wedge and
made small gains Nebraska got the ball on
a foul. Yont fumbled and Denver got the
ball, carrying it within a yard or Nebraska's
