In his address to the graduates the presi dent -said In part: "i am going to Invite your attention 'this morning to that which confronts you In your start In life and the political and economic problem that, should you take part In politics aa you ought to do, will probably occupy your attention and call lor your activity In their solution. In the first place let us take the business situa tion. It Is, .of course. Impossible to ex pect that the famous growth of trades Khali continue In the proportion In which we have seen expand during the last ten years and It Is reasonable to suppose that at some time within the next decade there v 111 be some reaction or some financial stringency or perhaps a financial panic. ' Nevertheless the progress that has been ' made la real and substantial. There may: be a halt; there may be a sealing down of Aalues, but these we have had from time to time, followed by a recovery which Indicated only a momentary lapse. a"It Is thought and said that opportunity for Individual success In business does not seem now so great as It was formerly and thao, therefore, the opportunity for young men to 'ln success In business less than It was thirty or forty years ago. Ptrntr of Opportunities. "It has been my duty to select and pro mo le many men In official life and I know whereof 1 speak when I say that success ,ful business, whether governmental or pr! y.vate, whether small or large, depends Pihlefly on the selection of men by whom this ttislness Is to be done, and that the promotion which successful men secure Is not that which comes by favor, but by the loglo of the circumstances and tor the benefit of employer. There Is, therefore, today as much room for fit men aa there ever was in business. The kind of success that comes from Intelligent fidelity and - industry In the cause to which a man de votes himself, and the work which he does peaks (ar louder in the demand of his promotion than all the good will or his employer or the Influence that kind friends may seek to bring In his behalf. Dentin for Engineers. , "'What Is the condition of the profca- fons should you conclude to enter one of them? The enormous demand for the woik of the members of certain scientific professions, like engineering, civil, me chantcal and electrical and manufacturing I frhemlstry, I need not dwell upon. In the. r ! last decade It has been hard to secure men with sufficient experience In these professions to Justify employing them In positions which are open. In the profes Ion of the law there seems an abundance of material, If one ran judge by the large masses which Institutions like this and other great law schools are turning out upon the public. Those who pursue the profession of the law will find In It a ten i dency of modern days to make the pro fession a business, or to give It, rather, a consultative and advisory union than one of advocacy and forensic effort. "No one can have a profounder admtra tlon for the legal profession than i have Una must recognise that the administra tlon of Justice In this country has suffered grievously from the Intensity with which lawyers have served their clients and th lightness of the obligation which they have felt u the court and to the public as off! cera ef the court and the law to do no in Just lea.
