Probably no address delivered to a grad
uating clans of the state university In re
cent years has been more dlscustied In Lin
coln thtn the address of Senator-elect John
Sharp Williams of Mississippi. Mr. Wil
liams devoted most of his time to a dis
cussion of the race problems of the south, '
though he took occasion to say that the
democracy of the south believed In the
representative form of government as op
posed to legislation or government by direct
vote of the people. This portion of the
speech has been pretty thoroughly dis
cussed, In view of the attitude of the demo
cratic candidate for president, who last
winter Insisted on a democratic legislature
enacting a law providing for the Initiative
and referendum, without submitting the
same to a vote of the people for adoption.
Mr. Williams' solution of the problem
which confronts the south was the Immi
gration of the colored man to the less con
gested regions of the north. Some of his
hearers Insisted that the address was In
poor taste, while others were Just as In

CHAMPAIGN, III., June 13. -Yesterday
afternoon at 4:00 o'clock President E. J.
James of the University of Illinois deliv
ered the annual baccalaureate address to
the 651 candidates for degrees from th
colleges and schools in LTrbana. He spoke
of the old time personal relation between
college president and student body and of
the changed conditions that now make
that impossible. In part he said:
"Your success in life, In my opinion, Is
going to turn at bottom, very largely upon
your attitude toward life and Its problems.
We have emphasised here In the univer
sity the necessity of learning, the neces
sity of Industry, the necessity of honesty
and sobriety, but whether this 1 going to
lead to succe or not will depend In the
last analysis upon our attitude toward life
and its problems." He spoke of the prog
ress of the time, that It is an Irresistible
life impulse contained within the times
themselves, for "the more one studies hu
man history, the mure one is Inclined to
believe that human being secrete Institu
tions, secrete civilizations, as unconsciously
and with as little real idea of how or why
they come into being, flourish, and pass
away, as the bees of the field who build
their cells and fill them with the honey
of countless generations of flowers." How
to get Into harmony with th best progress
of the time was dwelt upon at some length,
concluding with: "If the selfishness char
acteristic of our present society, is not to
give way to unselfishness; if the law of
antagonism and opposition and hatred is
not to give way to the law of love, then
all our building will have been In vain,
except so far as we may ha profited
by the process of building Itself. It I not
knowledge, It la not science, It I not
prophecy that hold human society te
gether. It is an ideal, and the permanent
