Ruihven Tells Freshmen Modern Youth
Is Again Being "Sold Out" By Elders

* -

Forsaking the customary welcom-
ing amenities for an open discussion
of the problems arising from Europe's
war, President Ruthven told 2,000
freshmen gathered in Hill Auditori-
um Sept. 19 that youth was again
being sold down the river by the
elders.
The younger generation will be left
to clean up the debris left by those
who at present govern and guide the
world, the president pointed out, and
in order to bring peace again in-
telligent and impartial citizens are
needed.
Deep love of democracy, and tht
ability to see through floods of propa-
ganda released by belligerent nations
are keynotes of future good citizen-
ship, both in times of war and peace,
Dr. Ruthven said in the course of his
speech. Hope for the future should
not be abandoned, he added,?for de-
spite errors of the past, thiere re-
mains the opportunity to rectify these.
mistakes, and above all to order our
own thinking.

are many, but all depend upon intel-
lectual honesty, and a sincere respect

which had been previously published
by the University.
Prof. Dwight Dumond's lectures in
University College, London, are con-
tained in another summer publica-
tions, "Anti-Slavery Origins in the
United States." Professor Dumond
advances the theory that the muzz-
ling of popular expression the South
made a battle by arms almost the
only practical solution to the slavery
question. He also infers that Lin-
coln was an abolitionist in actual
sentiment, rather than a man driven
to freeing the slaves because of poli-
tics..

and newspaper reports which w
published 100 years ago at the tin

Another book which will appear
