the present freshman, he mar be
moved to pity the pupil of the
former times and to wonder how
it was possible for anyone then
to hecome, learned. ;But- his ,Pity
and wbndgr are due to his over
looking a very elemental condi
tion of human nature; namely,
that learning Is the result, of a
process personally initiated , and
controlled by the learner. Band

an i 'assemblage of - helps now

until Jhey comer into contact with
abusing personality. . v'
. 'Consequently ,-6ne of the. first
and most valuable things to be
definitely acknowledged by a per
son entering college is that the
college itself cannot give him the
least jot or tittle of education. .A
student may have money bestowed
upon him, or honor, or friendship;
he may dwell in cloistered halls
which echo to the spiritual pres
ence of majestic minds; but the
utmost genius of the race will be
helpless to move him a single inch
beyond his present state. Learn
ing is so completely personal that
it can only be achieved by one's
own Initiating wish and effort
' "Do not expect that this pres
ence Willamette's material facil
ities and faculty will do more
than give you a chance, supple
menting your forth-reaching ac
tivity by guidance and encourage
ment. It is for you to say, not
merely during these beginning
days but throughout all days,
whether you will or will not be a
"Because it is important that
you make the acknowledged dec!
sion to contribute your uttermost
self to the high end of learning,
I have reminded you of this com
monplace. .Now I wish to con
sider with you a factor less appar
ent, yet positively essential to
your success in college and else
where. I refer to the spiritual
attitude of a student. It is pos
sible for you to be upon this cam
pus and yet be miles away; you
can be in this institution and yet
not of it. And if you are not
spiritually a part of the college,
the college will not be used by
you for your attainment of an
"This is saying that you must
face in the direction to which you
wish to go. This is not a pathless
world. History and human ex
perience for centuries have made
trails to every treasure house and
there are clearly marked wayj to
reach the goal of learning.
I "We judge by your coming to
college that you wish to be edu
cated. to achieve the power to live
effectively. It would seem that
you have faced in that direction
but no one is certain of that, pos
sibly the student himself is not
certain of it. But if, he is truly
assured of it he will need'to be
carefully wise lest he unconscious
ly be turned away from it.
"Just now you are upon the
path which leads to the treasure
which a college can help you se
cure; and my plea of counsel is
that as you walk along that path
you should keep your gaze fixed
in that direction. It is hard for
aspiration and action to spuare
with each other, though we know
they should. For example, a man
aspires to be rich, yet he spends
every dollar he earns. Another
wishes to be cultured and con
tinues to choose coarse friends, to
read unprofitably and to secure
his pleasures at a Coney Island.
A third desires to be religious,
but keeps away from the church,
pores over the literature of unbe
lief and Beeks no nourishment for
"The reason why they act so
contrary to their aspirations is
tremendously valuable if we get
it. It is because they become dis
satisfied with the road. Any per
son knows that the road to wealth
requires that less be spent than
is earned, that the way to culture I
requires appropriating contacts
with cultural influences and that
the highway to religious life de
mands worship, prayer and right
eous conduct. Anyone likewise
knows that success in an under
taking depends on the undivided
interest in the task. x'
"The student's temptation is to
find fault with this or that which
confronts him, to blame every
thing but his own laggardness.
Then his eyes turn to the by-paths
and his heart Is divided. There
fore I am asking you students to
cultivate and keep the attitude of
eagerly looking toward your goal.
"I know nothing which will be
of more help in this than the
proper attitude tdward truth
(which Is your goal) and the
means now at hand to help you
"Need I remind you how im
possible it is for you ever to be a
learned person unless you regard
facts and principles as real pos
sessions greatly to be desired and
of mighty value? A snobbish or
sophisticated attitude toward
learning is simply the sign of a
weak mind or of a. mind con
trolled by a streak of silliness. In
reality the realm of knowledge is
so vast and so infinitely enriching
that thankful reverence and con
secrated determination should
characterize anyone who so much
as glimpses it. A man should be
thrilled by its opportunity and
awed by its responsibility.
"You here are dedicating your
self to the noble privilege ot self
development through appropriat
ing relations with truth. Love
this privilege so passionately that
nothing can divert you or cool
your enthusiasm or make you in
different or allow you to be lazy.
It Is your high hour in life. There
are no words strong enough to
mark your folly If you are recre
ant. No tears are pitiful enough
to represent your loss.
.'Too - soon will become ac
quainted with the teachers and
with some you will become friend

from them you can refuse any
sym pathetic contact ' with' thena.

toward those who are to be im
portant factors in your education.
The wholesome and correct atti
tude is to think of them as sin
cere coworkers, to think of them
cordially and at last affection
"Keep it out of your mind that
students and faculty are in oppo
sition. This idea can- poison and
embitter your nature, make you
unhappy and destroy the possi
bility of achievement. Students
are apt to nurse that idea if they
do badly and are called to ac
count by professors and president.
You will find that these teachers
wish yofl to do your work well
and live correctly: people whoi do
not care for you will show no sxich
concern for you.
"In ait yci'jr college years you
will have no truer friends than
these men and women on the plat
form. Cherish that assurance and
your relations with your instruct
ors will become richer and deeper

ing which is the prerequisite of

'The same principle applies to
your attitude toward everything
connected with Willamette. No
one can or should approve every
thing, for no college is perfect as
no person is perfect; but cynicism
and carping criticism toward ath
letics or building or chapel or
library react so cruelly that he is
not wise who permits that atti
tude to slip into his' nature.

work light. It is tragic to be oJL

'As a final suggestion I would
indicate that your attitude will
make or mar your Christian life.
If you are inclined to do so, yon
can everywhere find nourishment
for; your doubts; you can fasten
od disjointed facts ana halt-
truths; you can bo superficial;
you can bo disdainful. The result
will be a sure weakening of your
belief. I 'discover, too, that any
desire to do wrong is apt to send
one searching for a way to justify
that wrong and we usually try to
get rid of God."
"On the other hand, the path
ways leading to a sane and strong
Christian life are well-marked.
You should covet that life. It is
oyous, satisfying, sensible and
fundamental. You should go
about it in a practicable way. You
should have a daily reading of the
Bible. You should pray daily.
