VOL. IV.-No. 44. U
John T. Graves Speaks on "The
Reign of the Demagogue."-The
Lecture Enjoyed by All.
Seldom has such a patriotic and
lofty appeal for good government
been made to our student body as
was delivered last Saturday evening
by the eloquent Georgia editor,
John Temple Graves. To appre-
ciate true oratory is to listen to this
"Apostle of the New Souti." A
wealth of vocabulary, a clear ring-
ing voice, and a musical rhythm,
almost poetic, are qualities that well
equip Mr. Graves for the lecture
He prefaced his theme with the
important question, "What shall a
young man do with his life?" The
youth of a republic are its bulwarks.
The Ameriean youth, today is stand-

We are living in a fast age. Young
boys strut around in swallow tails

agogue. Where selfish ambition
lurks he may be found. He lives a
thousand lives, in law, in juries, in
business, in religion, and in journal-
ism. Wherever the people have a
voice in government, there are two
men, the patriot waving aloft the flag
of freedom and truth, and the dem-
agogue lifting the pirate flag of
The germ of this product is the
ward politician. His greatest trait
is familiarity. He knows everyone,
is everywhere. Wherever found
selfishness is his aim.
The speaker's ringing declaration
that he would rather swing the
lance of free thought and plant the
seeds of truth, than to occupy the
highest office to the detriment of
his countrymen, showed that sin.,
cere spirit of lofty patriotism, which
is not found in mere idle words.
Taking up the race problem,

this perplexing question could
be settled along the lines
