A quote from a famous American soldier who put down his sword to
become the president of a famous American college would, perhaps,
be appropriate here. "The war being at an end-the questions at
issue between the belligerents having been decided, I believe it to be
the duty of every one to unite-in the re-establishment of peace and
harmony. It appears to me that the allayment of passion, the dissi-
pation of preiudice, and the restoration of reason-through education
of our young people-will alone enable the people of the country to
acquire true knowledge and form correct judgments."
This quote oddly enough is not from the now president of Columbia
University in the year 1950 but from General Robert E. Lee upon
assuming the presidency of Washington College in August of 1865.
Though uttered eighty-five years ago, its sentiment is as valid today

Dr. Charles Yager, B,A., M.A., Ph.D., who despite
the formality of those impressive titles and degrees,
is one of those rare creatures we call the salt of the
earth .... He is one of the true friends and counsel-
lors to the students of this college. Doc will be remem-
bered for his fine teaching, his refreshing philosophy
on life, his freely offered help and his never ending
stream of stories. Just where he gets all those stories
will always be a mystery to us .... Dr. Yager has
been at Oswego since l936 and has taught every
course in the science field with the lone exception of
geography. He has seen fourteen classes come and
go. We are the richer because of our contact with
him .... We bid you hail and fairwell.
