byo. College eniinitieB are by no moans
eternal, nor, Heaven help us all, are college
friendships immortal. Wo have said good
bye to other classes that contained people
wo loved and honored, who scarcely speak
to us upon the street to-day. We have
known those who graduated, our enemies,
whose presence now makes our hearts glad.
The Greatest Man said: "Love your ene
mies." Well, most of us spend our lives
doing it unconsciously, and dispising those
whom we ought to love. College relations
are entirely matters of chance and circum
stance. If any of you think we have been hard
upon y6u, you have probably belonged to a
political ring wo did not train with. You
had no particular reason for being in your
ring, we had no particular reason for being
in ours. So far as personal opinions went
we might just as well have been in the same
ring only we were'nt. We very seldom
select our friends or foes, fate and chance
select them for us. We wonder now, as you
leave us who of you will be our friends and
who our foes in live years. The fact that
we don't know makes it doubly hard to see
you go. Human nature is always a little
disgusted at its inability to sustain a long
and constant relation of any kind, and at its
marvelous talent for forgetting. Perhaps it
is best that we change and others change
toward us, only sometimes it is a hard lesson
It is a late date to refer to "Ships That
Pass In The Night," but be that as it may,
we have spoken and passed each other.
If we on our part have spoken any words
but those of cheer and kindness, and we have,
we ask you to forget them. Remember only
our hearty good cheer, let all harsher words
sink and be forgotten in the distance that
grows between us. We wish only the fair
est winds to fill your sails, and only the
richest harbors to be your ports. We will
bid you no foreign farwell, but in the plain
old tongue which we believe to be the grand
est on earth, which we know the greatest
poet spoke and hallowed. We bid you with
all our hearts, "Good-bye and God speed."
