-'XIXIXININI c Donalclk Messagml MEMBERS Oli THE SENIOR CLASS: 5 You have undoubtedly heard the opinion expressed that ours is a material age. It has been maintained by many that material progress-that particular progress which has been the result of the inventive genius of this country-has been so marked that while it has contributed to our wealth as a nation, it has at Jthe same time contributed to the growth of a low spiritual and mental standard among' the general rank and file of the people of America. There is undoubtedly need forthought among those who have received the benefits of education in America, and among these you are to be included, as to what use is to be made of the development which has come as a result of the years spent in formal education. A It can never be maintained by any right thinking individual that the inventor, the man through' whose thought processes improvement has resulted in the develop- ment of American machinery, is himself a man lacking in thought. The men who have developed the automobile, let us say, have been men of deep thought. They have produced a mechanical contrivance which is a marvel of effectiveness. They produced it by thought.

There is too much dramatic thinking in America-today. fDramatic thinking is the enemy of genuine thought. There are thosewhov as soon as they believe they have achieved an original thought are afraid that the world will not know about it. They crave publicityg they rush into print. They are interested not so much in thinking, not so much in being effective, as they are in receiving-the plaudits of the crowd, in making headlines about themselyes, in being dramatic. Sometimes what they say today they recant with deepest chagrin KOIDOITOW. These are the individuals who are giving rise to the notion that there is no deep thought in America- nothing but material growth. In their own poor little minds they conceive of them- selves as the real intellectual leaders, but they are not. They are the ones most adversely affected by the glory of American invention because they see only the gloryg they
