BY EPISCOPAL BISHOP
President Campbell Sends
“Keep away from the border
line of mediocrity,” was the warn
ing contained in the address given
by Bishop Walter Taylor Sumner
at assembly yesterday. He advised
the student of today to “dare to do
mighty things” with the chance of
failure rather than to belong to
the great band which neither en
joys nor suffers much because it
knows neither victory nor success.
Bishop Sumner characterized the
present day as a period of recep
tivity in which there is a tendency
for the individual not to exert him
self in self-expression, because he
can get with little effort that which
is much better, perhaps, than he
himself could produce.
“vWe are constantly receiving,”
he said. “When we go to church
we are prayed for and preached to
—and we do nothing but sit tight.
We foTget the other half of the ob
ligation, which is to make use of a
productive ability in self-expres
Professor Hopkins Quoted!
The speaker criticized the atti
tude of what he called “pseudo
philosophers” in assuming that it
does not matter what a man thinks
of religious matters. “You can not
live on the border line and find it
either satisfying or helpful,” he
“Nothing is more important than
a conviction.” he declared. He
quoted Professor Hopkins of Dart
mouth as saying that one of the
greatest problems facing students
today is that the student body is
Bishop Sumner did not consider
the controversv between religion
and science, which is occupying so
much attention, to be essentially
important. “Certain truths do not
contradict religion,” he declared
and added, “Do not be disturbed
by arguments belonging in the
realm of speculative thought. Con
centrate your attention on things
that are worth while in life.”
Bishop Sumner upheld the youths
of todav, attributing much criti
cism of them to a difference in
ideas of ethics and morals. “Each
generation establishes, its own
morals and customs,” he said, “and
we must change our ideas of what
conventionality is. I do not think
you stand for lower things because
you are less conventional as mea
sured by the old standards.”
Message From President Given
However, the speaker ■ believed
that conventionality is necessary
as a safeguard when youth ap
proaches the negative side of the
border line of ethics and morals.
Bishop Sumner paid a high trib
ute to President Campbell, and de
livered a message to the students
from the head of the University.
“When I spent an hour with him
one afternoon this week,” Bishop
Sumner continued, “he sand to me,
‘I wish you would say something
to the young people for me. I wish
that the young "people could realize
that all that is art, and all that is
beautiful is being expressed in the
department of art in this institu
tion; and that what we are trying
to carry out in other departments
of the University might appeal not
only from the practical side but
might appeal to them as of value'
from a moral side. ’ »
