to be sure to tell you not to overstudy,
and I want to tell you to be sure not
to understudy. What we’ re really
sending you to Harvard for is to get
little o f the education that’s so good!
and plenty there. When it’s passed
around, you don’t want to be bashful,
but reach right out and take a big
helping ever}- time, for I want you to
get your share. You'll find that edu
cation's about the only thing lying
urouml loose in this world and that it’s
nbout the only thing a fellow can have
as much of ns he’s willing to haul
away. Everything else is screwed
down tight and the screwdriver lost.
I'm anxious that you should be a
good scholar, but I ’m more nnxious
that you should be a good, clean man.
And if you graduate with a sound con
science I shan't care so much if there
are a few boles in your Latin. There
are two parts of a college education—
the part that you got in the schoolroom
from the professors nnd the part that
you get outside of it from the boys.
Thut’s the really important part, for
the first can only make you a scholar,
while the second can make you a man.
Education is a good deal like eating
—a fellow can't always tell which par
ticular thing did him good, but he can
usually tell which one did him barm.
A fter n square meal o f roast beef and
vegetables and mince pie nnd water
melon you can’t say just which ingre
dient is going into muscle, but you
don’t have to be very bright to figure
out which one started the demand for
pain killer in your insides or to guess
next morning which one made you be

ure out to an ounce whether It’s Latin
or algebra or history or what among
the solids that is building him up in

along feeding them in and betting
that they’re not the tilings that turn
his tongue fuzzy.
Does a college education pay? Does
it pay to feed in pork trimmings at 5
cents a pound at the hopper and draw
out nice, cunning little “ country” sau
sages at 20 cents a pound at the other
end? Does it pay to take a steer that’*
been running loose on the range ai
living on cactus and petrified wo*
till he’s Just a bunch o f barbed wi.
and sote leather and feed him corn til
he’s just a solid bunk o f porterhouse,
steak and oleo oil?
You bet It pays. Anything extra than

quick pays. Anything that teach*

fellow gets through biting the pe
