"There is also an intellectual force I
opposing a straight spine. Intense
study of the sciences often causes one
to lose' his individuality. Anybody
with any intelligence knows #hat thej
law of cause and effect holds in the
inner world as well as the outer
world. I do not believe in fixity of.
character and ability. All intellect-
ual difficulties are overcome by walk-
ing up to the fact. The preset
change of ideals and overthrow of'in-
stitutions of long standing is confus-
ing even to a college student. Rev-
erence is not very prominent in the
world of today. Authority is being
discredited on every hand. AnythingI
that is,- is wrong. The whole gen-
eration has become afflicted with men-
tal curvature of the spine. These In-
fluences in the world today influence
student thought. Students haven't
quite the patience to see that it takesi
time to solve the problems of the
world. They teiid to be influenced by
the groups, and groups have no spine.
Religion Deemed Imporlant
"The third aspect of the situation
takes us to the corrective measures
for this situation. My fond dream is
of a University where the curves are
taken out. How can we get rid of
these curves, of this supine agreement
with ,the crowd? To get the moral
curves out of our spine we must first
be perfectly well physically. A su-
per-physical power brings superb
mental power. If we get the curves
out of the physical spine we shall get
them out of the mental spine. The
University tries to do this. Second
you, must have the right sort of hab-
its. Habit mechnizes the whole life.
Habit makes it easy to be good or to

be bad. In the third place you must
have a purpose in life. Why are you
here? You aie the picked one per-'
cent of the world. Where are you
heading. Is there purpose in your
coming here?
"One thing. we must learn. Truth
is not tp be found only in your own
head. 'ruth is that which accords
with the great intendant fact which
is everywhere. There is an objective
out there that must be reckoned with.
A sane person can also believe in re-
ligion, friendship with all that is.* Be-
ing a part of the grand totality of the
universe-that is what I conceive to
be religion.'
' Itelligent ,Ioice Essentf" i
'The president'concluded with a dis-
cussion of the inherent dignity of the
quality under discussion. He show-
ed 'that the moral universe involves
the possibility of choice. He said thatI
the "highest distinction of life is the
capacty for a choice, the power to re-
duce a dual possibility to a single re
alit!." His closing words were a
plea for individuality, for true "Spine".
"The student who misuses and
therefore loses choice is on the road
to death. Spine is indvdualty. . The
great falure of education is in not
emphacizing individuality. We must
recognize that you are. Spine says.
Be yourself'."
