Little Ahead Of Time
One day a stranger, bleeding and
fatigued by a long march, told them
of the fe-tile valleys which lay be-
yond their valley. Indignantly, the
old men found this man guilty of
of sacrilege, and he was stoned to
death. Years later, in a time of
draught, the young people of the
village rebelled against the old
men, and pushed over the enclosing
mountains to the fields beyond.
There they raised up a civilization,
and a new race. At the height of
their power, they paved a highway
back to their original hone, and at
the end erected a sptrld monu-
ment to the memory of the man
who had first pointed the way.
Thus, Michigan half a century
hence will approach the station of
'its retiring President, who though
waiting for it, will even then be
facing the future.
Following this speech, a hand-
some easy chair, of English design,
was presented to President Little
and Mrs. Little, who because of ill-
ness was unable to attend the ban-
quet, as a r,1%t from the students
indicative of their high regard for
