It was nearly Hn hour af ter half past two, however, before the graduating class preceded by the facul ty filed In. The delay was caused by the dinner of the Alumni association at the I'nlverslty Dining hall at which were the seniors and the members of the faculty besides the members of the Alumni association. Enthusiasm marked the dinner by the presence of William H. Taft. He spoke briefly, his remarks being mera- ly felicitous concerning the occasion. r'enitor John ( Spooner of Wisconsin nlpo spoke, os did Judge John P. Clarke of the New York supreme court. At torney William N. McNulty of New York cltv. one of th beM known of the younger alumni, wns the only oth er speaker. When Secretary Ta't entered the auditorium at Itndrle hnll, nearly at the eiincliHun of the exercises, the audience with one accord arose In their seats and a rousing Yale cheer echoed through the building for him. He was accompanied bv President Arthur T. Hartley, who made the announcement of he various prlr.es ,n the school. The address to the graduating class which preceded this event waa deliver ed by the Honorable John W. Foster. 1UT. His subject wa The Evolution of International Law." H. prefneeil his address by tome personal Incidents while a student of tlx.- Harvard 1-aw school fifty years Dsn, Illustrating 111" greater attention shown to the study of International law at the present day; and then dis cussed the authoritative charaeter of International law. After a hrl f review of the Imper fect rules of customs governing the relations of the ancient nations and following the fall of the Roman em pire, he referred to the events of "the sixteenth century and the Influence of Charles V. and Martin Luther, and flxd the beginning of modern Inter national law with the publication of the great work of Orotlus and tha congress of Westphalia. He then traced the evolution or growth of In ternational law by a number of lllus tratlons. Citation was made ef Its salutary Influence In ameliorating the severities of war; Its effect. In modi fying the rules relating to commerce and especially to Jurisdiction over the ocean; the decay of old rules, as In that of the war of 17fi, and territor ial rights by discovery and coloniza tion. The growth of the principle of neutrality was traced In somo detail and )he conspicuous part taken by the United States wns shown; the history of the four rules of the Congress of Paris of 18BS was given; the mortifi cations of International law to suit changed conditions was Illustrated by the change which the common law principle of riparian rlghta haa under gone In the United States. Hut the chief part of th address waa devoted to that branch of Inter national practice In which the great est advance has been wade, the ad justment of controversies among na tions by arbitration. The United States from the beginning of Its his tory has been a conspicuous advocate of this method, and has been a party to more than eighty arbitrations with various nations, the country with which we have most frequently re sorted to arbitration being Oreat Brit ain, with which in the past hundred years we have submitted almost every Imaginable question which may arise between nations, Including those In volving territorial rights and national honor. The defeat In the system of arbitration Is the absence of a per manent tribunal to which the nations can appeal. The establishment of such a court was near a realization at the last Hague conference and Mr. Foster was hopeful that It would yet bo established at no distant day. He contended that It was through such a permanent tribunal that the diffi cult question of the limitation of arm amenta might be accomplished. As the nations come to have confidence. In such a tribunal, the urgent neces sity for vast, armaments would be diminished, and In time the nations of the world would more and more re sort to this peaceful method of ad justing their differences, Mr. Foster closed his address by an appeal for the support of arbitration to lawyers, whose profession had Its origin In the suppression of personal violence and bloodshed and the estab lishment of courts and laws for the protection of life and property and the determination of private rights. Three powerful Influences, lie said, were to-day arrayed against war commerce, democracy and Christian ity. Notwithstanding the present manifestation of a martial spirit, there la a sober sentiment of Justice and right, and the slow but steady evolu tion of international law Is bringing the nations more and more to a high er standard of duty, which Is an aug ury of the eventual triumph of rea son and the reign of peace, There were several musical selec tions by an orchestra before the award of honors and prize and the announce ment of the Townsend prisie winner.

O'Brien, of Meriden, Wins Campbell Gold Medal Other Awards. TAFT AND; HADLEY THERE Fine Address by Professor William T. ' Sedgwick, of Massachusetts Instl-' tnte of Technology, At College street hall announcement of honors by President Hadley was made following the annual address on Medicine at the exercises celebrating the 05th anniversary of the medical de partment of the university. To John Francis O'Brien of Meriden went the Campbell gold medal, awarded for the highest rank In the examinations of the medical rourne, and which le con sidered the highest honor. The exercises started at. five so that President Hadley could arrive from the Iw school exercises esrller In the af ternoon. Here, too, on the plstform was Secretary Taft and at the conclu sion he was given more rousing cheers by the medical men. Professor William T. Sedgwick of the Massachusetts Institute of Tech nology delivered the annual address, his subject being "The Call to rublle Health." He epoke In part as follows: lof. BodgowleVs Address, One. of. the richest consequences of the scientific age has been the new and higher valuation ef human life and human welfare. As long as this world and this life were chiefly held as merely preludes to another and a bet ter, health and longevity wera lightly esteemed. .The divorce of the preeent and the real from the future and the Ideal was the fatal blunder of the mid dle ages, their reunion the triumph of the Renaissance and of mortem times. lAny philosophy which holds this pres ent ordinary human life cheaply. Is doomed to failure. The primal call of the scientific age Is to. life, and the next to fullness or abundance or wholeness of life, I. e. to health. This not merely that we may have life but that, we may have It more abundantly Science deplores that blind leadership which for so many, weary centuries led mankind not only. to .ah Ignorant con tempt, for the human organism, most, precious and most marvelous of all ma chinery, which It saw fit to call mere "flesh" but also to Ingenious and hide ous forms of Its mortification such as fastings, flagellation and other hideous grotesque . and . disgusting forms of worship or penance, Happily a new day le'dswnlng. In spite of the unfor tunate' fact that physiology, . hygiene and sanitation are still despised by many principals and teachers' In the lower schools, the rising call for pub lic health is a sure patent of a whole some chanre. Instead of clamoring for federal aid or a cabinet secretary of health w may well begin one new era by a campaign of education. The call to public health Is the call of the ae to better and more efficient living. . It requires improvement of the environment, of water supplies, milk supplies, housing condition, air sup plies, ice supplies, food supplies, and a host of external conditions under 'the supervision of engineers, chemists, bio logists, statisticians and other laymen and better control of tha human or ganism Itself through improved beha vior as to app"tltce, work, rest, sleep, habits and other physiological proced ures, as well as artificial Immunity se cured by vaclnes antltoxlnes and other medical treatment. The old terms macrocrwn and microcosm have today a new significance for public health, the latter corresponding to the human mechanlem, the former to that portion of the universe , not ourselves. That poor machinery rightly used may still produce admirable results the lives and work of many Invalids such ns Charles Darwin and Robert Louis Stev enson plainly ehow, The Call to Public Health has humanitarian, moral and economic aspects. Recent studies have proved correct Hazen's theorem, that for every death from typhoid fever avoided by purification of public win ter supplies two or three are avoided from other causes. This means that Pittsburg for eximple, ehould save from half a million to a million and a half of dollars' worth of human life by means of Its new seven million dol lar filtration idant. Among the responses to the call for public health have been the better or ganization and rising efficiency of some state and municipal hoards of health, the formation of anti-tuberculosis societies the endowment of medi cal research by men of wealth, the movements for tenement-house and lodging house reform, the studies of diseases of the lower animals, such ns bovine tuberculosis and rabies, the magnificent work of the U. a. army surgeons upon yellow fever, and the excellent and extensive work of tho U. S. public health and marina hospital service. This last Is particularly to be praised for the patient persistent re search work of Its hygienic laboratory as well as for Its readiness to give on request expert aid In, epidemiology such as It has recently rendered In tho south against yellow fever and within the year on the Pacific, coast against the bubonic plague. The medical pro fession Is showing great breadth as well a wisdom In casting aside the time-worn mantle of professional ex cluslveness nnJ, as Is most notable In the antl-tuberculosis campaign, sharing with the public all Its knowledge and Its Ignorance. By responding to the call of the age for public health the young medical man may do his part, uphold ing greatly the precious traditions of human service long characteristic of a great and noble profession, Mcdlm!
