financial aid our Univeisity began its exis
tence. Every year saw it grow; every year
saw it fix itself more firmly in the affections
of the people; every year saw it reach out and
take a stronger hold on the public regard.
And as it received the favor of the people of
the developing commonwealth, it gave in re
turn, an education, a liberalization, a culture
to the sons and daughters of that same com
monwealth. And so the people loved it for what it did
for them, and gave it their best without stint
or murmur.
The years went by and it grew ever strong
er, until today it is the pride of a state whose
greatest ambition is to contain an intelligent
and a cultured people. Around it is an at
mosphere of hope and ambition: in it is a
body of men striving for the best in life and
the life to come. With a faculty of earnest
men and women, and authorities whose ev
ery thought is of its progress, the University
on this Charter Day may well congratulate it
self and make merry on the deeds of the past,
the work of the present and the hope of the
future. Esto perpetua!
