'"The tax laws must be reformed
that the University may have what it
needs. The question must not be: How
high are taxes. It must be: Does the

University brings the state greater re
turns than any other expenditure."
Governor Hadley .said the university
must keep out of partisan politics. He
urged that the alumni of the School do
all they can to make the people of the
state acquainted with it. In conclu

tiiiuuished service as an educator. Or.
Eliot then began the delivery of the
commencement addrc. speaking in a
uell-rouinleil oice that reached all
parts d" the hall. His theme wa so
cial equality. The address was the
Phi Beta Kappa oration for 1909.
No Two Have Equal Chance.
In his addn Dr. Eliot dwelt on
social equality as an ideal. The pur
suit of happinc. he said. houlil be the
aim of democracy and it was not in
evitable that this happiness should re
sult from equal social conditions among
men. Dr. Eliot said:
"Alen as a matter of fact arc not
born equal: no two can have an equal
chance in life by any possibility be
cause their means and powers of meet
ing the exposures, risks and opportu
nities of life are different. Even under
the most favorable circumstances,
therefore, children are not born equal
in life but unequal and different, and
this original inequality is infallibly
developed as life goes on; because it
is impossible to provide the same en
vironment or the same education for
any two children. A just social phil
osophy will not undertake to fly in the
face of these facts of nature."
Effect of Free Education.
Dr. Eliot, also, spoke of the effects
of free education on the problem of so
cial equality. He declared that public
education had no tendenev to make
children like or equal in any sen"e.
'Public education." said Dr. Eliot,
'"has not held the child long enough in
school. It has put too many pupils
before the grade teacher, making it im
possible for her to ive individual in
struction either to the brightest or the
dullest children and almost compelling
her to aim at an average product.
In dosing the speaker said that so
cial equality then, was not the aim of
democracy. The pursuit of true hap
piness, he said, should lw the aim of
every man in the United States.
Those on the Stage.
On the stage were Governor Herbert
S. Hadley. of Alissouri, members of the
Board of Curators and the faculty of
the Univer-ity of Alissouri.
