Iladlev of Yale Saturday nipht at a hampiet at the St. Louis cluh. The address of Pre-ident lladley was received with the Yale loll, pien standing by the grad uates. President lladley briefly reviewed the triumph- and aehieiemoiits of Yale for a century down to it-, greatest triumph of helping elect William 11. Taft, a Yale aluniuu-. to the pre-ideiicy. In closing Dr. lladley gave his idea of an ideal college education, according to modern standard-. "The ideal college education today id to teach the young man the things he is not going to u-e in his cho.-en pro fession- by method- he i- going to u-e," said Dr. Iladlci. "He will learn the actual iiidintcuts of hi- rofe-sion by actual coiita-t with them in his olliee. My ide.i is to lit him for actual bu-ines- with the things he ought to know."

"I believe in professional politics to a certain extent. 1 belieie a portion of political work can not be done ex cept through men who are classed as professional politicians, but then they should only be actuated by the highest niothes." Pre-ident lladley made a strong pica for intellectual competition in colleges among-t the student-. Athletics Not Everything. "While I admit that i competition among students for intellectual honors is not as keen as it might be," he said, "I deny the idea of many that students care more for physical prowess than they do learning. While they, and any man admire physical perfection and -true- tor ;t. still the student lias a ery high regard for intellectual ad vancement." A high tribute was paid to President elect Taft by Mr. lladley. "A man whom I have known for years," he said, "and whom amongst all men I would have cho-en. had it lieen left for me to choose a Yale man." The reference to Taft was received with cheers. Pre-ident lladley told of the high honor recently conferred by the Chi-ne-e government on a graduate of the Yale law school. The Chinese gradu ate of Yale, he said was so high above the rest of the competitors that he was placed in a class by himself. The advance of the Yale library was also dwelt upon, and President lladley assured the alumni present that the Yale library would soon be the library center of the United States. In stating his opinion of competition among students for intellectual hon ors, Pre-ident lladley drew a compari son between the teachings of a decade ago and the present system. Methods Have Changed. "Long ago." he said, "it was the custom of the professors to find out a man's inclinations and then go di rectly oppo-ite. If they found out that you heartily dc-pi-ed metaphy--ic- they would insist upon you study ing metaphysics. "Now that is all changed. Competi tive examination- among profe-sors have been instituted, but have been neg lected with the students. What we need is something to engender a feelinp of wlioh-onie riialry that will lead them to preater endeavors." ludpe tJeorpe C.
