merits a noble monument commemor
ating thin great achievement.
The last speaker from the class,
Mr. Samuel Evenden, pointed out
the iufluenco of commercialism on
education. He deplored the ten
dency to eliminate the "culture"
studies from the curriculum, with
all their liberalizing and 1 refining
eflect, nd argued that our twenti
eth century education should not
only fit a student to "do things",
but to be a man or woman in the
fullest sense, able to participate in
the enjoyments of life as well as in
the strenuous action. Hie conciua

By ex-President G'rover Clove-
and. It is foolish for us to blind
ojr eyes to tbe fact that more
should be done to improve the con
dition of our neg-o population. It
should be entirely plain to all of us
that the sooner this is undertaken
the sooner will" a seriou duty be
discharged and more surely will we
gaurd ourselves agaiust .future
trouble and danger. If we are to
be just and fair toward our colored
fellow citizens, and if they are to
be more completely made self res
pecting, useful and 6afe members of
our body politic, they must bo
taught to do something more than
to hew wood and draw water. The
way must be opened for them
to engage in eomething better than
menial service, and the!r interests
must be aroused to rewards of in
telligent occupation and careful
