The most startling rumor to be launched just now is that put forth by
The Springfield Republican that President Roosevelt is ambitious to
succeed the venerable head of Harvard, Dr. Eliot. President Roosevelt
was never supposed to be a profound scholar in any department, but he
is backed by plenty of degrees, and that he is something of a thinker is
shown by his brilliant ideas on "race suicide." But as President Roose
velt proposes to wait till after he has finished his second term at the
White House, there is no cause for immediate alarm at this, strange in
novation. The idea of a man of President Roosevelt's stamp assuming to cover
so grave an academic function is not, after all, so strange as it would
have been formerly. The president of a modem college is not the over
awing personality that he formerly was. His office is now more a busi
ness one than a strictly academic. He is supposed to be a shrewd care
taker of the college securities and properties and to preside over a mul
titude of concerns that formerly had no existence.
Some may think PrcsidentsRoosevclt a little too strenuous and too
much addicted to limiting and other undignified sports, but as an adver
tising card for athletics he would prove a prize. But Dr. Eliot believes
that a typical scholar would most dignify the president's chair at Har
vard, and there "are lots of old fogies that probably think so, too. Bos
How much longer will Dr. Eliot of Harvard, the septuagenarian col
lege president, hold his position as head of the Crimson university?
This is the question called forth by a recent editorial in The Springfield
Republican to the. effect that President Roosevelt aspires to succeed
President Eliot in Cambridge when his career in national politics comes
to an end.
Up to the present time few people connected with Harvard have even
thought of President Eliot retiring. So hale and hearty is the grand old
president that the idea has seemed to prevail that he would live on in
definitely like those who, in olden times, drank at the fountain of eter
nal youth. Now, however, every one has suddenly awakened to the
fact that President Eliot ts far beyond the age when college presidents
are usually expected to retire. Three years ago the corporation, hi
strict accordance to custom, could have asked him to resign. But they
did not do so, and even today have never considered a single candidate
to succeed himself in his important place.
Every Harvard undergraduate thinks Roosevelt would make a great
Harvard president. "He would be strong for athletics." "He would
speak to the fellows" (which Dr. Eliot doesn't do). "He would ge a
great hustler." These are only a few of the comments which his name
suggests to Crimson students, each and all of whom hope that there is
truth in the rumor that some dav he will be over them. President Eliot
himself is at the present time out of town. According to the state
I ment of Mr. Green, his secretary, yesterday, there is no foundation for
the rumor that President Roosevelt has even been thought of to succeed
him. Boston Post.
It is hardly pretended that Mr. Roosevelt is the ideal man for the
'bead of Harvard, regarded merely as an educational institution. On
I the other hand, it is certain -that his incumbency would draw many
students to the university, that he would keep it constantly in the pub
lic eye, that athletics would be likely to show a lusty development, and
that he would encourage a manly, hearty spirit among the students. He
would have a great and wholesome intiuence in many ways. But the
university as a seat of learning would gain things from another man
such as Mr. Roosevelt could not give. It is not a question of greater
or less,but of difference in kind, and both kinds are required for the
good of the place. Hartford Times.
Why should not Mr. Roosevelt become actual president of Harvard?
Why not, indeed? It is impossible to imagine any position whatever
in which the president could be placed to which the prefix "ex" would
not be absurdly inappropriate. , It is equally impossible to imagine any
position in which lie would not be very much "at large." He would at
once "get busy" at the head of that or any other institution, and he
would promote business in others. When the existing undergraduate
body thinks of his presidency, it must lament that itself was born too
early. Under the grinding tyranny of the faculty committee on athletics
its victims now groan helpless. How would they rejoice if they could
look forward to a Rooseveltian regime. The new president would put
that body in its place if he had to lick every member of it. And how
happy would those undergraduates be who feel themselves capable of
filling every item of the Cecil Rhodes bill except the disgusting first,
which the name "scholarship" implies, if they were sure that this frivo
lous and irrelevant objection would no longer be brought up against
It would not be. Can anybody imagine President Roosevelt letting
a good left tackle go because he could not decline "musa, musae," or,
for that matter, because he could not spell "cat?" Assuredly not. Har
vard would be first in the field and on the river, whatever became of
the Homer examinations and the prize debates or its president would
know the reason why. His aspiration for his undergraduates would be
that of the poet around his "dusky brood":
Iron jointed, supple sinewed, they shall dive and thoy shall run;
Catch the wild goat by the hair alid hurl their lance in the sun;
Whistle back the parrot's call and leap the rainbows of the brooks.
Not with blinded eyesight poring over miserable books.
Theodore Roosevelt must have conduced considerably to the enliven
ment of Harvard when he was there as an undergraduate, even though
cramped by the trammels of an effete system of discipline and a false
standard of instruction. But installed there as president, with ample
power to his free and strenuous elbow, what a transformation he would
work! All over our broad land youths more distinguished for strenu
osity than for studiousness would be begging "the end man" to send
them to Harvard as the first arena ever opened for their peculiar gifts
in the guise of an institution of learning. The presidency, of Harvard
would be great while it lasted. There is no doubt about that. New
It is a little early for speculation as to Mr. Roosevelt's employment
after he leaves the White House. Two years of his present term remain,
and a full term of four years may be added. But this much may be
said with safety: The presidency of Harvard university would fit him
like a glove. The duties of the office would appeal to him strongly;
and while they would take up a good deal of his time, they would not
take up all of it. There would still be time for writing, and Mr. Roose
velt could address himself to the preparation of those histories and bio
graphies relating to American subjects and statesmen which arc said to
be now on his memorandum book. At 50, and even at 60, years of age,
Mr. Roosevelt is likely to be a very strenuous laborer in whatever vine
yard may be found. Washington Star.
President Roosevelt's future after he leaves the White House is map
ped out for him in an editorial printed by The Springfield Republican,
which carries the inference that Mr. Roosevelt would not be averse to
accepting the presidency of Harvard university when President Eliot
retires. It is not known whether the editorial is ex-cathedra. Phila
