himself by cutting his abdomen with
a knife, was taken into county court

Mcukol tbr Ciur.
The cause of his insanity was said
to be excessive use of intoxicants. Af
ter his attempt at injuring himself he
Was taken to the police Ktafton. where
it was thought he would sober up and
be all right mentally. He was sent to
jail for 10 days, but since he has been
there It has been apparent that his
mind was affected to such an extent
that he would not improve under those
conditions. Beside the knife wound
Ids head and body show evidences of
having been bruised.

Folloipng the commencement exer
cises the president made three public
addresses, one at the Harvard union,
a second, and the principal one of his
trip, at tlay annual alumni dinner in
Memorial hall, and a third from the
s tepa of Memorial hall to the members
of the alumni who could not gain ad
mittance to the Memorial hall exer
cises. lrun Kataaslasnt.
The speech in Memorial hall, which
was a general discussion of the mis
sion of the college, evoked great en
thusiasm. In the course of it he said:
"There are two points in the under
graduate life of Harvard about whic h
1 think we have a right to f ' some
little concern. One is t lie growth of
luxury in the university. I do not
know whether anything we can say
will have much effect on tis point.

A Lot of
Wo are now
but just so far as the alumni have
weight I hope to see that weight felt
in serious and sustained effort against
the growing tendency to luxury, and in
favor of all that makes for democratic
conditions. One of our number, the
one whom I think the rest of us most
delight to honor Colonel Higginson
has given to our alma mater the Har
vard Union, than which no better
gift, no gift meeting a more vital need,
could have been given to the univer
sity. It is neither possible nor de
sirable to try to take away all social
differences from the student life; but
it is a good thing to show how unim
portant these differences are com
pared to the differences of real
achievement, and compared also to
the bonds which should unite together
all the men who are in any degree
capable of such real achievement;
bonds, moreover,, which should also
kuit these capable men to their breth
ren who need their help.
"The second point upon which I
wish to speak is the matter of sport.
Now I shall not be suspected of a tend
ency unduly to minimize the Import
ance of sport. I believe heartily in
-port. 1 believe in outdoor games, and
I do not mind in the least that they
are rough games, or that those who

injured. I have no sympathy what
ever with the overwrought sentiment
ality which would keep a young man
in cotton wool, and I have a hearty
contempt for him if he counts a brok
en arm or collar bone as of serious
consequence, when balanced against
the chance of showing that he posses
ses hardihood, physical address and
courage. But when these injuries are
inflicted by others, either wantonly or
of set design, we are confronted by the
question, not of damage to one man's
body, but of damage to the other
man's character. Brutality in playing
a game should awaken the heartiest
and most plainly shown contempt for
the guilty player of it; especially if
this brutality is coupled with a low
cunning in committing it without get
ting caught by the umpire. I hope to
see both graduate and undergraduate
opinion come to scorn such a man as
one guilty of base and dishonorable
action, who has no place in the regard
of gallant and upright men.
Mot Serious IJ unices.
"It is a bad thing for any college
man to grow to regard sport as the ser
ious business of life. It is a bad
thing to permit sensationalism and
hysteria to shape the development
of our sport. And finally it is a much
worse thing to permit college sport
to become in any shape or way tainted
by professionalism, or by so much as
the slightest suspicion of ' money mak
ing; ami this is especially true if th
professionalism is furtive; if the boy
or man violates the spirit of the rule
while striving to keep within the let
ter. Professional sport is all right in
its way. I am glad to say that among
my friends I number professional box
ers and wrestlers, oarsmen and base
ball men, whose regard I value, and
whom in turn I regard as thoroughly
good citizens. But the college under
graduate who, in furtive fashion, be
comes semi professional is an unmiti
gated curso. and that not alone to uni
versity life and to the cause of ama
teur sport; for the college graduate
oul.t in after years to take the lead
in putting the business morality of
this country on a proper plane, and ho
can not do it if in his own college ca
reer his code of conduct has been
warped and twisted. Moreover, the
spirit which puts so excessive a value
upon his work as to produce this semi
professional is itself unhealthy. I
wish to see Harvard win a reasonable
proportion of the contests in which it
enters, and I should be heartily asham
ed of every Harvard athlete who did
not spend every ounce there was In
him in the effort to win. provided only
he does it in honorable and manly
fashion. But I think our effort should
be to minimize rather than to increase
that kind of love of athletics which
manifests itself, not in Joining in the
athletic sport, but in crowding by tens
of thousands to see other people in
dulge In them. It is a far better thing
for our college to have the average
xtudeiit interested in some form of
athletics than to Lave them all gainer
In a mass to Eee other people do their
athletics for them."
