One Man’s Opinion
rv -~r-I. By Stivers Vernon a
THE death of former associate justice of the
supreme court, Oliver Wendell Holmes,
leaves us with a curiously helpless feeling. This
business of dying seems so completely inevitable.
That the world has been left to struggle along
without this, another truly great man, is mildly
We have not experienced that feeling of help
lessness since the death of Thomas Alva Edison.
The sensation is utterly inexplainable but it is
somehow very real. Perhaps it is because since
the days of our earliest childhood, names such avi
Holmes, Edison, Burbang and a number of others,
have been household words almost like the gods
which sit on shelves in the homes of the Asiatic
peoples. They were somehow beneficent deities
to uk strong hands upon the helm as the cur
rents of destiny push the feeble craft which
symbolizes life, across stormy seas.
We know, of course, that other strong hands
will arise to take over the duties of those de
ceased. We know that they were but human be
ings after all. They were but men even though
lo our childhood they seemed like enormous,
As a youngster we frequently hung over the
fence anil watched Luther Burbank as he walked
among his plants. He . was a curious person to
us a strange mixture of homeric legend and
kindly old gentleman. Now tie has been dead for
some years and as yet no man has come forward
to take his place.
What about these others? Who will take Ed
ison's place? What man will arise to interpret
the law in step witli changing times as did Oliver
Wendell Holmes? Perhaps we are viewing the
World through a very sm ill knot-hole and have
not seen that, men are arising to take these
places left vacant. Strong men will be needed for
these are desperate times.
America will not fall quite naturally be
cause of the death of a group of great men. The
people who are America, are greater than any
individual or group of individuals. Still, we feel
that strange helplessness which comes with the
passing of those whose names were symbolic of
strength and courage and wisdom. We have but
one solace. We know that somewhere whether
it is on a mid-western farm, in a New England
village n a city street there are others who in
V'ars to come will rise to Tie nobility of purpose
that moved those great ones. Upon these rest
the hopes of a race and of a civilization. Upon
this vast, potential resource must American de
pend if her future is to measure up to the glorious
past created by the illustrious dead.
