of strength in any of these particulars. A young man of strong character there- fore fails to arouse a spirit of opposition. For his influence is not of the noisy kind. Its subtleness is its strength. It conquers without the meretricious show of the bugle note and the regalia of dress parade occasions. The tone of a college life gives evidence o; the scale of character of its best men. Such men make the esprit of the institution. They strike the key from which the gamut of college life is run. Student ideals create the standards of student life. Happy the college in which the student ideals are set on a high plane. Force of char- acter is like all other force. It produces results always in the direction of the greatest components. When the traditiofis of an institution are inspiring student esprit is not difficult to create. When the traditions are debasing a high grade of college life is almost as difficult to beget as it would be to produce a concrete object from a passing fancy. When young men present themselves for college matriculation they should come well armed with resolves to a manly Ufe in all that constitutes its highest type. This persisted in will lay the foundation for a code of college life under whose benign influences will spring up a class of men full fledged in all those characteristics which command the pride of the under graduates and create in the graduates a filial devotion to the cause of Alma Mater. When a senior feels that during his four year course he has acquired information of such a character as to qualify him to call in question the wisdom of every policy of its board of managers and further to regard the work in all departments as subject to amendment by the uggestive force of his monumental brain power, then the best element of the senior class with that of the under classman should realize that the esprit of the institution is being attacked from a vital point. The man thus sapping the vitality of the college with which he is associated should be brought to a realization that such conduct can find no congenial clime for its development in the college beyond its incipient state. The responsibility upon every young man is to keep clean the escutcheon of his institution. If from the student ' s standpoint he sees conditions which appears to militate against its good name, let him call attention to it in his class organization. Urge upon the class the importance of eliminating the evil and planting the good. Memorialize the college authorities for the correction of the evil. There can be no question as to a respectful hearing of any memorial coming up in the proper spirit from the student body. There should be the keenest reciprocal appreciation of the differ- ence between the points of view of the college authorities and the student body. 10
