Vacation Has Come--Grand Sermon ---Fine
The closing exercises of the Moses
Levi Memorial Institute began last
Sauday morning in the auditorium of
the Institute with the usual religious
service for such ocrasions. The bac
calaureate sermon was preached by
Rev. Gordon I. 'Moore. D. D.. Colum
hi. . C.
The auditorini was 1iiled to o\ver
flowfog, and every detail of the pro
r was carried out excellently. The
choir under the direction of Mrs. .1. L_
Wilson wa; composed of Mesdames
U. C. Gailuchat.. if. J. Uradham. W.
C. Davis. S. I. Till a-ud J. (. Gough,
!essrs.F. .. llichardson. J. L. Wells,
and A. P. Burgess. The singina was
superb. especially the last number "Oh
For a Thousand Toagues to sing." In
this selection there Was a duett very
sweetly rendered by Mrs. J. 0. Gough
and Mr. J. L. Wells. The following
was the program:
Voluntary--All Thy Works Shall
nraise Thee. '
Hymn - -Come Thou Almighty
Prayer-Rev. J. 0. Gough.
Choir selection-"O Come. Let us

Hymn-"All Hail the Power of
Jesus' Name."
Sermon-Rev. G. B. Moore.
Choir Selection-"Oh. for a Thous
and Tongues to Sing."
Benediction-Rev. G. D. Moore.
The sermon was the utterance of a
student. a master of English. a moulder
of thought and a demonstrator of di
vine teaching. The speaker delivered
his sermon in a manner that impresses
itself upon the mind. He reached with
his forceful and magnificiently rounded
sentences the minds of those of tender
years, and in them he planted seed
which should be fruitful in after years.
Dr. Moore's sermon1was an oration with
out the usual frills, flounces and laces
so common with public speakers. There'
was no aerial flights. no soaring among
the stars, no tripping along silver
brooks, no plucking flowers in the gar
dens of imagination, no tinkling of sil
ver bells, and no feeding the mind upon
perfumed air. But for fifty minutes he
pointed out the vaTue of persistency,
determination, self reliance, work with
a shigh ideal as the goal. The entire
discourse was our conception of true
oratory. The following is a brief syn
opsis of his sermon:
Subject: 'Personal Value:'" Text:
Luke, 12:L.
The question of personal value is
forced upon our attention as we stand
in the presence of a vast and uncom
prehended universe. Man feels hiss
smallness~and helplesness,and condemns
self-importance as a defect of charac
ter. "W'hat is man that thou art mind
ful of him: I tbe Son of man that thou
visitest him?'" What is one life among
the teeming millions of earth?
Only one question concerning per
sonal value will be considered, viz:
How is it~determined? Three questions
are involved in the determination of'
personal value. First, the whereabouts
or the environment of the person un
der consideration. Secondly, the nat
ural endowments or hereditary advant
ages in the case. Tbirdlv, the element
of personal will.
It makes a difference where one be.
gins life. Environment places a limit
upon the degree of personal value that
is attainable. The individual as such
has no assignable value: his significance
is derived from his social nexus or rela
tions. The particular social order in
volved is important. To be potential
one must appear among a potential
people. Nature in the first place- pro
duces a great brain only among a peo
ple who use their brains and discipline
them in the highest exercises.
The free use of one's own will is de
termining personal value. We are
largely what we choose to be. We are
in a world that stimulates thought and'
that prompts to action and the forma
tion of ideals. This is a land of oppor
tunities and an age of opportunities.
Personal value depends largely upon
the services we render to others It is
enhanced by service to the State, to
society, to the cause of philanthropy
and religion. It means more, perhaps,
to be an American at this time than to
be a citizen of any other land. No
greater opportunities invite.
The old corception of virtue as
strength, an activity of the will in over
coming resistance needs to be revived
and re-emphasized. If life is to be a
rational whole of experience, the ex
pression of a definite value, there must
be no aimless drifiting. Native endow
-ment here is important. Men are born
neither free nor equal: they exhibit
primordial differences that become
more conspicuous as they rise through
voluntary effort into freedom. SomeI
are naturally weak, deficient in the
basic qualities that constitute steadfast
character. There can be no man actual
where there is no man potential. There
must be a man implied from the begin4
ing: some adamant, or at least, grit.
Education, under the most favorable
conditions, creates no new qualities, is
not a process of making something out
of nothing: it is simply making the
most of existing materials. Our ideals
must take account of existing condi
tions. and gather their strength and
inspiration within the circle of pre
scribed and necessary action.
The manhood of Jesus of Nazareth
was illustrated.
The danger to our ideals from impa
tience to succeed in business. etc. Eax
amples illustrating manhood. morally,
intellectually and physically.
After all that may be said of environ
ment-and surely ours is most favor
able-and after ~all claims and allow
anees have been made on behalf of
heredity, each one of us will at least
be an exipression of value in terms of
will and volitional achievement. And'
when the final decision- is rendered as
to our personal value. it will rest upon
the use we have made of our sovereign
plower of self-determination.

hitterness and contention. The sons of the blue

child of the South, and one proud of the South's
past record. and of the Confederate blood which
fows in his veins I cannot speak of the past
and fnture, of love of country. of loyalty to the
stars and stripes without first impressing upon
those who hear me the necessity of inculcating
into the youth of our land a veneration for the
lost cause. and indellibly impressing upon their
minds that the South has never done anything
to be ashamed of: and further. that every man
who took part in that great struggle or offered
up his life a living sacrifice upon the altar of
the South was a hero. They should be told too

There is another pace in our country's his
tory, when the struggle wtis great, the enemy
fierce and the obstacle to be overcome almost
insurmountable. It was in the early days.
When the betautiful fields tiow ladetned with
plenty, were but a mass of undiscovered and
untried jungle and wilderness. When on the
spots now dotted with happy homes, the wild
red warrior, and the fierce Oeast of the forest
ran rampant and held full sway. The brave
men and dauntless women who fought that
fight for civilization in a new and unknown
country. hsve also lef t a heritage upon which
all succeeding generations, can look with pride.
They approached this shore with fear, and
ti ambling, but no sooner had they set foot upon
t~e land which fate had destined to be theirs.
than the noble anglo saxon spirit famous and
predominent the world over triumphed over
their fears, and goaded them on to doing deeds
of heroism and bravery. They sprang like
magic npon the stage of action; strong. vigor
ous, brave and trne. their every fibre tingling
and teeming and pnlsing with energy and en
thusiasm, and then and there a new type of
manhood, the noblest. most courageous, and
sublime was born into the world, and the world
was blessed by its advent. All the essential
elements, physical. political. intellectual and
spiritual were harmonized each to each. be

what a pathway. They have grasped the helm
of civilization. They moved not like a little
rivulet gradually feeling its way. and finally
wasting itself upon the sands. but rather like a
great swollen stream, bursting forth with a
wild crash, and carrying all before it. Forcing

our fathers were the ancient friends of Mas

touch which inspired and nerved the heafet and
strengthened the arm of the men of New Eng
land during the early birth days of our nation.
We of the South have just uas much right to be
proud of the nation's record and the Stars and
stripes, as the people who reside tiorth of the
Mason and Dixion Line. And it should be our
pride and our glory to know that the baniner of
our country is floating as peacefully and tri
