As Chancellor MaeLean said The State
University is a University State.1' Tt has its
ofiieers, its honors, its government, and conse
quently it. has its polities. And to have poli
tics is nothing -wrong in itself; the hcienee of
organiaation and government is. to us, the
most important of all sciences. Sheldon
Amos says that 'the science of politics em
ploys and requires a knowledge of every other
science of -whatever sort."1 The practice of
politics creates parties and demands leaders.
These leaders are likely to be of two sorts,
each class displaying the characteristics of its
following. The one seeks spoils, self-exaltation
and pulls, it is for faction, for self and
for the honors. Its desire islo -win; rightly
if convenient, but to Avin at all events. Its
leaders are organizers: tihey are always pre
pared to contest anythingand Chat -with vigor.
They are shrewd and sharp, they knmv the
"'Cricks of the trade." Charge them with
self seeking and they turn a steadfast, hold
eye upon you and protest "on their lienor. ,"
Advance any argmn.Mil and Chey annihilate
it with a breath. Suggest a plan and they
deride it. What they lack in logic they sup
ply in haidness. What they lack in reason
they make up in vehemence. Their very
boldness oft en "wins a case that has in fact no
merit at all. Their followers yield an abso
lute obedience. Tii.-y trim their 'Jeaflms!to (U)
their thinking and heartily endorse their
plans. They compose an army with out
sou'b, a body -with one mind and .obodiunt to
everv imood of that mind.
The oliher class is composed of mien who de
sire the Jbost good of .all, who think, as Suul
'vidua'ls, and .conclude as single persons. Urn
their ranks there is singleness of purpose but
