BACCALAUREATE ADDRESS.
(Continued from First Page.)
you, if you go into the world with the
ntion that to perform your duties to
the people and to the state you must
necessarily seek political preferment or
play the role of agitator or reformer.
In my judgment the duties of lie edu-
cated man or wimn to the peole do
not, of necessity, involve a public career
at all, nor do they justify a consuming
ambition for notoriey or place. Lead-
ers we must, of course, have in every
department of human activity. But to
pay the debt that you owe to humanity
and the state, by virtue of the privi-
leges that you have enjoyed, you need
reach none of these heights. Greatness
in the world's estimation is not nece-
sarily the only measure of success.
Thousands are doing the work of heroes
and patriots of whom the world never
hears. In the quiet of private life the
foundations are laid for epoch-making
esento. The great field for work and
influence, the field in which every one
of you can make himseif felt, and it
which you should labor until you have
proved yourself fitted for public leader-
ship isa t the very source of political
and social power; it is among the peo-
ple. Leaders may formulate and plan;
conventions may ratify and promulgate;
crators may expound and prophesy, but
the great public questions of the day
are after all really settled at tne nre-
sides.
It is a lesson that should be early
learned that in order to attain personal
success and at the same time perform
his whole duty to the public, the edu-
cated man must be bound by bonds off
sympathy, of consideration and of ap-
preciatin nto those by whom he is sur-
rounded and with wham his work is to
be done. He must wake on to the fact
that although the education of 1the

schools is something, it is not every-
thing, that to accomplish substatalii
results for himself and to become an
influence for good in the community in
which he lives or in awider sphere, he
interests of the community must be his
. interests, not simulated but genuine
through and through. Whenever neces-
sary he must take his place in the
ranks and stand shoulder to shouler
with his humblest neighbor. I have an
abiding faith in the people, in the
plain, every day people. I believe in
0 their devotion to country and in their
; earnest desire for the right. I believe
that their judgment can be trusted
when they have an intelligent compre-
hension of the issues that they must
have a part in deciding. They seek the
truth, and their teachers should be the
0 educated men and women of the land
y whose hearts should beat in unison with
theirs."
The speaker then closed with a well
worded reference to President Angell.
y The Comedy Club.
r
s The Comedy Club will give its second
performance of "All the Comforts of
Home" tomorrow at the opera house.
Two performances, matinee and even-
ing, will be given. A full aI nounce-
ment of the cast will be given in to-
niorrow's Daily.
The New Flag Pole.
The 'Varsity flag pole was raised on
the 23rd and stands a few inches over
150 feet in height. It is located in the
very center of the campus, about 20
feet southwest of the drinking foun-
tain. The flag that will fly from the
top is the fine forty-foot one given by
the Alumni Association.
