We have always a few brilliant men; they are a highly valuable element In our college community, they cheer up the llfo of the prbfessorfc, we could do well with more of them. Hut the major ity are not of thiH closi. They aio well endowed In their general mnkcitp; their qualities are tolld rather titan brilliant; they require from their teachers patience and encouragement, and sometimes even nil despcrandum" but by tho middle of junior year they begin to surprise their profesrors with the exhibition of real power, In any truncated three years' curriculum they would not come to ma turity; at tho ond of their college course It Is too much to say In the Oxford phrase that all of them "have satlsfltd" their Instructors -but they have given hopeful evidence of Interior power, of Initiative of originality and their sub eeiiurnt career In tho majority of cases not only fortifies tbli hope but moro than rewards this f.iith In them which wo cherlih.

They do not have the brtlliancj which flashes and goes out; tl.uy liavo as a class the ability which grows slow ly at first but keeps on growing till It attains power, and mastery, nnd leader ship. I would, If I dared, Illustrate my point by calling names. They would be names of men In nil professions, scattered through all parts of tho country, every where lending men, but long as the lUt might be, some of yen would say, "why did you omit this man nnd this, and tills'.'" Enough, you will nil, I know, nd mlt tho Justice of my claim, it Is bome thlng we nil hove reason to be proud of. If any other college claims to havo some other characteristic equally honorable, or even this same characteristic nftcr their kind, we will not deny or begrudge them the possession of It. We will admit thnt our men have not a monopoly of the Intellectual virtues nnd thnt Clod hnd n hand In making other collcgos than our own. At the some time as Mr. Hillings used to say when ho wanted to defend some person who was under criticism "You must not expect too much of one who was not graduated at the University of Vermont," You see, gentlemen, how these serious and kearchlng public discussions arc forcing upon us an unusual urgency of self-consciousness, and Introspection, and challenge, and how wo nre meeting the situation, by discovering our own sources ot strength, and maintaining our Individuality with conviction nnd confi dence.
