ROYAL PURPLE igio President Waters IXCE Royal Purple made his bow last year the honorable burden of shaping the destiny of the College has been placed upon a new president. After a search of over a year by two Boards of Regents, the unanimous choice fell upon Henry Jackson AA aters, then dean of the College of Agriculture in the University of Missouri. That this choice would prove a wise one was indicated by the uniformity of the commendation accorded Dean AYaters by those familiar with his work. He had found, in 1897, the College of Agri- culture weak, the victim of strife and an object almost of contempt. He made it respected all over the world. He found it without ade- quate funds, he left it strengthened and built up by legislative favor bestowed upon no other college of the University. From 1890 to 1895 he had been Professor of Agriculture in the Pennsylvania State College and Agriculturist to the Experiment Station, being the first Western man in agriculture to be called to an Eastern institution. At the University of Missouri he had devised and was conducting an extensive series of investigat : ons in animal nutrition that had at- tracted world-wide interest because of their scientific merit as well as their practical application. His publications had reached some sixty titles, aggregating nearly 1,200 pages. PTe had the confidence of the farmers and the public generally in Missouri and the esteem, even the affection, of his associates in the University. That the choice of Dean Waters was a wise one has been shown by his Kansas work thus far. He has been an extremely busy man. Not only has the College organization and personnel required and received much careful attention, but outside organizations have sought him for addresses. The courses of study have undergone a thorough reconsideration and careful revision in which the hand of the president has been that of the master. He has shown the attri- butes of greatness in that he seeks not to deprecate the work of others, but only to build upon the existing foundation a stronger and a fairer
