His cheerfulness and almost constantly light

th honor. His mind was keenly alert and always
idy with an appropriate and happy reaction to
y situation. His innate keenness for the joy of

dside and at the operating table, his colleagues

Some eminent men are honored and remem-
red chiefl for the record of service which they
ve wrttten during their lives. Dr. Canfield's

Recently the intellectual has been the target of
a volley of reproaches. He has been harried, villified,
and scorned. A wave of antagonism to him followed
the war mania, since mob suspicion was sure co
detect in him the menacing red streak of a revolu-
tionary. Conditions have little changed within the
past few years, and the intellectual is still an object
either of benevolent contempt or downright hostility.
But what is this peculiar sort of a creature we
dub an intellectual? Is he the wild-eyed malcontent
and mystic rebel so threateningly pictured by the
yellow press who find no cruelty painful enough to
ascribe him? Or is he the weak-willed blind enthus-
iast, striving after the butterfly creations of his own
imagination? Indeed, there are some who are all
that and perhaps the world is right in denouncing
But far more numerous and important are thoseI
groups of intellectuals who see in society and in lifeI
more than the primitive rudimentary elements of
food getting, self preserving, and replenishing the
heart. They view life as capable of being moulded
to the will of men and fashioned to their ideas and
ideals. They find in life mystic interests and subtle
values unconceived by the man of the street. They
regard culture as the highest achievement of the
human heart.1
The true intellectual is one who, silently working
in his mental laboratory, plans and thinks, and hopes
to add his atom of strength and knowledge to the
compound wisdom of the ages. He alone keeps alive
the fires on the hearthstones of art, literature, and
philosophy. He alone has the power and vision to
guide and predict.
Against such types the world can least afford to
bear ill-will. The tragedy lies in the poverty of their
ntumbers rather than in the peculiarities of their
manner or teaching. Our country has yet to learn
to put a premium on its intelectuals and thereby give
impetus to those forces that make for a higher Amer-
ican life.
(Oklahoma Daily)
Seniors within a month of graduation are nearly
as ignorant as freshmen, and in some important
fields even more so.
'Certainly not a flattering statement, yet this was
the conclusion reached by those conducting the
Carnegie Foundation study in Pennsylvania, a thor-
oughgoing and intensive survey of the effects of a
college education oh the mind of the average student.
Then wherein does the fault lie, and how can it
be remedied? Certainly under the right educational
system the student who is allowed to stay in school
four years should not come out with a mental deficit,
and those who are unable to improve their mental
status would be dropped long before their fourth
But until such a system can be discovered and
inaugurated the responsibility lies with the student.
Surely no conscientious student even under the pres-
ent system will go through a college course without
acquiring a little knowledge, even if he must gain
it upon his own initiative.
The Carnegie Foundation findings should serve as
a challenge to every student attending a university.
