The Seniors of Rutgers, The State University at Cam-
den, choose each year to honor a member of the faculty
or the administration. The process of bestowing this honor
is, in reality, an act of tribute, and every delicacy is re-
sorted to see that the tribute is properly weighted - if,
indeed, it can be. This year Walter W. Herkness, Assistant
Dean of the College, as well as faculty member, is hon-
ored on this dedication page. Dean Herkness has served
ably and well, and it is idle to recount his many services to
"his" students. It is better to center our pride on the life
philosophy of "our" Dean.
Spinoza, in two wonderful sentences, tells us: "A man
who desires to hel-p others by counsel or deed will refrain
from dwelling on men's faults, and will speak but spar-
ingly of human weakness. But he will speak at large of
man's virtue and power, and the means of perfectingfrhe
same, that thus men may endeavour ioyously to live, so
far as in them lies, after the commandment of reason."'
Dean Herkness is a man who has engaged our atten-

tion and admiration by showing us how to live "ioyously"
and "after the commandment of reason." He epitofnizes
the great Aristotelian balance in life and takes great care
to help us find this rest in activity. We must say that while
Dean Herkness teaches us how to live well, he also leads
us along the path of a discovery of the essential of living.
He is, quite simply, a special spirit and, as Nicholas Ber-
dyaev candidly said: "The spirit is activity and creation
Activity, Creation, and Freedom are the essentials
of our being. To our minds, Dean Herkness has not only
found these for himself but has, to an unprecedented de-
gree, attempted to convey this message to us. lt is not
possible to capture the real value of Dr. Herkness' contri-
butions to the students and to the University on the
printed page. Suttice it to say that Dean Herkness be-
comes an intimate part of every student's college experi-
ence here at Rutgers. Dean Herkness is, and will continue
to be, a vital tradition on this campus.
