" Education has to be well rounded, " he went on. " It ' s like a spinning globe. Try to settle down on one sector and you ' re thrown off into the abyss of ignorance. You have to keep going, treadmill fashion — yet always moving forward a little — and after you get all the way round you just keep on going around again. " Doctor Cline liked to tell about the Cen- tenary boy who was an All-American foot- ball player and another who was a world wonder in the fields of science. " How many here, " he would ask an after- luncheon audience, " ever heard of - - - -? " (Giving the name of the famous athlete.) Usually every hand would go up and there would be shouts of " He was All-American in football! " " How many, " Doctor Cline would continue, " ever heard of - - - - ? " (Naming the boy from Centenary who made himself na- tionally famous, in a very short time, for scientific research.) Usually no hands went up. Dr. Arthur Compton, right, famed physicist, delivered the address when the new Science Building, Jackson Hall, was dedicated. Dr. Cline greets the commanding officer of a signal corps unit stationed on the campus during the 1941 army maneuvers. " Put that in the paper some time, " he said to me with a grin one day shortly before he died. " I ' d like the business department to look it over and see which boy really did Centenary the most good in the long run! I ' m for college sports — but the boy who gets a letter also should get an education! " Most Centenary athletes received both. A few days later he called me on the tele- phone. " I ' m not very well, " he said. " Could you fill a speaking engagement for me at the Woman ' s Department Club if I find I can ' t make it? " We chatted a little about the general course of the lectures he had been giving. " We just have to keep talking about the world among ourselves and keep trying to understand things and to know about them, " he said. " Maybe we never will know much — but " we have to keep trying. "

" It was shameful, impudent, insolent. Why they even went right up to the home of the presi- dent of our neighboring college with their paint brushes! " (I ' d swear I could see a twinkle in his eye!) " I don ' t know what is coming over the youth of today. Such rep- rehensible conduct! That ' s it — youth today simply is reprehensible! I have never been so ashamed in my life! " He looked out the window — and then in a quiet voice and with no effort to conceal the twinkle in his eyes, he went on: " Youth is — is — " " Reprehensible, you said, " I interjected. " Youth, " he said firmly, " is IRREPRESSIBLE! That ' s the word! " y ± %,. 1 m My point is that Pierce Cline never forgot that he was a college president — or that he once was a college boy. My last two talks with Pierce Cline were by telephone. I called him one day to tell him about a Saturday Evening Post article. " It told of the problems of professors in acade- mic and cultural branches of a great eastern college cramming themselves with science to take over wartime Navy technical classes. One professor of Greek found that every time he tried a navigation problem he started for the Alaska highway and wound up on the Road to Mandalay. Doctor Cline chuckled. Then he said: " Those cultural fellows need some good sound science, " just as earlier he had urged good sound culture as part of a scientific education. Army Air Forces officers arrived in March, 1943, to make their head quarters in the newly acquired Annie Haynes Hall on the former Dodd College campus, and were welcomed by Dr.. Cline.

I don ' t think I did very well. I kept looking out the big window and imagining I could see him there watching me. And when I should have been thinking of the world problems I was trying to discuss, I actually kept thinking to myself: " What a fool any man is to try to fill his shoes!
