ST. JOHN'S COLLEGIAN. 208 sicians of fame have graced her his-I tory, and surely the memory of these should he an incentive to help her aggrandizement. ' A -There are today in the ranks of her living alumni, men of state and nat- ional reputation and influence. It is for them now to rally to the aid of their mother, it is for them to band .together and by a strong united effort lift her to a higher and more pros- perous position. She is prospering now, but how much more can that prosperity be increased by the help of her influential sons. Let them come forward now and help swell the endowment fund to great propor- tions, not only from their own means, but by securing the interest and aid of philanthropic educationalists.

Gan we say that the literary organi- Zations, in which are developed the innate genius, and the class-room principles put into argumentative shape, can we say that they are not excellent branches of liberal educa- tion ? Or are those contests in which the physical man seems to 'play the most important part-foot-ball, base- ball, etc.-are they unprofitable parts of the educational make-up?
