Henry stood on the platform; elo
quently, passionately, convincingly
hc spoke of human rights, constitutional
guarantees, Personal Liberty.
A young student, tall and blonde, with
eyes qf blue and heart of fire, listened in* *
tently. Tossing aside cap and gown. he
bucklcd on his sword, saying, "Words are
'good; deeds are better."
At Harlem, White Plains and Brandy*

cold Christmas morning his blood splashed
the frozen paving stones of old Trenton

today his name is inseparably associated
with the most significant internatlonal
'Doctrine of modern times.
