A Verbal Heart Throb From a Wilson Speech
"THE GREAT VOICE OF AMERICA DOES NOT COME FROM SEATS OF LEARNING.
IT COMES IN A MURMUR FROM THE HILLS AND WOODS AND THE FARMS AND
FACTORIES AND THE MILLS, ROLLING ON AND GAINING VOLUME UNTIL IT
COMES TO US FROM THE HOMES OF COMMON MEN. DO THESE MURMURS
ECHO IN THE CORRIDORS OF UNIVERSITIES? I HAVE NOT HEARD THEM. UNI
VERSITIES WOULD MAKE MEN FORGET THEIR COMMON ORIGIN, FORGET THEIR
UNIVERSAL SYMPATHIES AND JOIN A CLASS AND NO CLASS CAN SERVE
