Clemson and its Commencement as so(
By An Alumanus.

ure In attending the Commence
ment exercises of an institutiot
- from which he has graduated, es
pecially when so successfully car
riod out as has been characteristi<
of the graduating exercises of Nine
teen Hundred and Two.
In visiting the old familiar
scenes and the many familiar
friends, pleasant memories' of the
past naturally loom up, especially
t do they here on these historic
grounds where history, song, ro
mance, nature and industry all
blend with such harmony. Yes,
it does ones soul good to look once
more upon the campus, to near
the countersign, "All right Sentt
nel" in barracks, to see the comr
pany formation for mess, to visit
the machine shops and to hear
the hum of machinery, to visit tho
Laboratories and to note the ad
ded improvements in all, to revel
amid the beauties of the horticul
tural grounds, and even to wonder
off to old Seneca's shady banks
and list to the poaceful muirmur of
her watere as they more onward
to the sea, and above all to renew
old ocquaintances and to make
new ones-all these conspire to
bring up our dearest memories and
to make this an occasion long to
be remembered as one of pleasure
which is commensurate with the
importance assigned to it.

The orators of the day were Mr.

and enthusiastically and his speech
was well taken.
M r. Zeigler's subject was,''Clem
son's position in the the Educa,.
tional System of South Carolina."
His speech was interesting and his
argument clearly p)resented.
After these speeches 1Hon. M. L.
Donaldson, of Greenville, made a
short, talk in which he emphasized
the mission of college graduates
and then presented the diplomas.

I firmly believe that the sti

in their method of appeal to the
powers that be for a redr-ss of the
grievances which were in evidence
here, for it must he an admitted
fact that if there be members of
the faculty or of the student body
who for suflicient reasons have
made themselves the object of dis
gust, who have proven themselves
detrimental to the good working
of an institution fraught with such
high aims and noble purposes as
this, such should be made known
and the proper measure taken to
weed out those men who are reflec
ting dircredit u1poln the school and
proving themselves to be freaks in
the presence of a free people who
have generously turned their ef
forts to the support of the college.
Now that tho Sophomore class and
the studen t body have shown their
intentions to be right, that they
have been actuated by motives
which look to the preservation of
the fair name of Clemson College
and that they were willing to sac
rifice their chances of a Collage ed
ucat ion (which means a great dt-al )
in order that right might rule, and
now that a condition of peace and
unity has been establised as a ro
suilt of their diligent efforts they
should be commnended for their
general manliness and encouraged
to lay a aside their, carps, enj. y
their vacation, forget their pre.
judices, should they have any, and
come back next session with a re
new ed energy for study and with
a still higher conception of duty.
