Tomorrow ' s sun shall see him, swift and strong. Mount the blue morning with a falcon ' s wing And speak his neighbors of the wheeling worlds. Thus far Man ' s mind, but hath his heart kept pace? " Nay " — but the voice protests — " its steps are sure. Groping, perchance, a dim and tortuous way, But ever upward, sunward, unto light. Even today, though sordid eyes see not. Blind Selfishness and Ignorance and Greed, Corroding like these old gray Mission walls. Are crumbling, crumbling, steadily to doom: Let but a few more years on forward feet Sweep over them, and these shall fall to dust. And free winds scatter them to nothingness; Enlightenment and Tolerance and Truth Shall lift like towers in our ampler sky, Far-flashing to the peoples of all lands, Good tidings of that goodlier dawn-to-be. When none shall have dominion o ' er his kind : When Each shall labor for the weal of All; And each shall quaff, as from a common fount. To fullness of pure Knowledge, living Art, And that true Christliness that knows no creed: Then, imaged onli like his Maker, God, And stepping with his soul-side to the sun, Man shall be Man indeed. " — Hilton E. Greer.

An Appreciation. Dr. Cxeorge Pierci ' Garrison is now the ulilcst niemlicr of the Faculty. He has been here since back in the eailv Sd ' s, and has seen the University grow from its first hiuiihle heginnings to its jjresent pro- portions. He has given the best years of liis life to furthei-ing its interests, and no man ever discliarged a trust more faitiifullv. Xor has his work been coiilined entirely to the rniversity: it has been co- e.xtensive witli tiie State, and even with the Nation, for liis historical works deal witli both State and National liistory. Tliese works have been ])rii(luced only after years of tireless work througli Jiistorical sources, for Dr. (iarrison is an indefatigable worker. But he has not allowed his work as a student to exclude him from other affairs of life; his efforts in the interest of the church, of the public schools of Te.xas, of ' listorical associations. State and National, and of the material siile of the l ' ni i ' rsity. are too well known to need comment. In him are combined the rare qualities of the student and of the practical man of affairs. H is not. however, for these tilings that he is especially remembered and loved by those who have enjoyed his friendship and tutelage during past years: it is lieeause of Dr. Garrison the man. the frieml. His honesty, integrity, and f-iirnes-; have ins])ired his pupils to higher ideals, while his symjialhy and love lia e bound them inseparably to him in ties of friendship and love. The Ciirhis takes pleasure in presenting this little token of I ' esjiecf to him. and in wishing for him many more years of usefulness and service to our lielovecl Tniversitv.
