Sentiments to very much the same
effect were lately expressed by that
typical man of action, Mr. Cecil Rhodes,
in offering an annual prize for the boys
of a newly opened school at Cape Town.
He wished the prize (250) to go neither
to a mere book-student nor a mere
athlete, but to a student whose profic
iency should include scholarship, suc
cess in sports, manhood and leadership.
What manhood means to Mr. Rhodes is
courage, devotion to truth and duty,
sympathy, kindliness, unselfishness and
fellowship. Leadership, to his mind,
would be indicated by force of character
and the instinct which in after-life
would bring the lad to undertake pub
lic duties. Mr. Rhodes evidently wants
his prize to go, not necessarily to the
beet scholar, but to the. likeliest lad. It
may be hard to award it, but the donor's
purpose is clear.
The vital qualities seem to be charac
ter, energy and intelligence. No doubt
there is a physical side to all of them,
and Mr. Woodberry, Mr. Rhodes and all
wise men want that side to be suffic
iently cultivated. The man we all
want the colleges to turn out is the man
who will do right, do it skilfully, and do

, Two men of very different training
and experience lately expressed views of
striking similarity about the place of
athletics in education. One was Mr.
George E. Woodberry, professor of com
parative literature in Colombia univer
sity, and chairman of the faculty com
mute on athletics. When he graduated
tat Harvard, twenty-four years ago. there wmkirv.-V. S. Martin.
All four of these men were men of great
power and tireless energy, who reached

could get and us 3 at that time. The
men who do remarkable things are, as
Mr. Woodberry seems to have suggest
ed, the men who have in them, and not
the men who have followed thk or that
system of training. But such men are
always reaching out for what they need.
