given them such other help as would prevent thom from meeting with any money loss on account of tho hostile legislation These young people have done remarkably well in school nnd several of them will grad uato at various institutions Two young men from Fisk will return to Borca to receive their diplomas at this Commencement It is probable that in addition to this assistance of Manor Berea students

Abraham Lincoln used to say God seems to Have a liking for the plain people By the plain The Plain I People Abraham Lincoln meant own sort of people The first we hear of his forefathers and at the respectable county scat of Bristol County Mass from which my great grandmother hailed and which she always spoke of I dont know why as Taunton good Lord The first resting place toi the family on its journey out west was Pennsylvania where a descendant figures in the local records as Mordecai Lincoln Gentleman Then the family branched offa portion of them becoming Quakers the majority going on to Virginia and that we hear of fighting under Washington in the War of the Revolution The branch that struck Kentucky had for nom inal head perhaps the only degenerate member cf the tribe otie of those men sized up to me by a bright and handsome colored chambermaid in Texas as one of them comical creatures that we women marry and have to support Happily little Abraham was the son of one and the cher ished little boy of another of that sort of women that go through life weighted with a comical or worse man and still bring up their children to become the salt of the earth Like George Washington Abraham Lincoln never troubled himself about his ancestors But I Southerners NonSlaveholdlng foremothcrs what lie meant by the plain that God seems to have a liking for as far as related to the South was the five or six millions of white folk that in 1860 in these fifteen States had never In any way been concerned with the ownership of negro slaves From the beginning these South erners who were not slaveholders had formed by far the larger proportion of the white population They fought the battles of the South first in clearing the land of the noble savage then sup plying the bulk of its loyal populations in the Revolution driving the crack regiments of Wel lington and Waterloo into the sea at New Orleans under plain Andrew Jackson j after wards wresting the empire of Texas from Mexico andexpanding the Republic towards the South west to the Pacific Ocean and finally under Robert E Lee tlirough four terrible years following their leaders from Charlestown to Appomattox with a devotion and courage so magnificent that nothing but the deplorable cause for which they fought could have caused their defeatBut indeed what we call by a figure of Eng lish speech the Southern Aristocracy was not I Aristocracy Southern wholly aristocratic The 350000 owners of slaves the majority of whom were probably owned by 50000 men with their families and the profes sional classes amounting to some two millions of people who for the first seventy five years of the Republic possessed the earth owned the four millions of colored laborers monopolized the society the wealth and the culture and fashioned the religion of these eleven States to their own liking and through this concentration of interest practically governed the nation till 1860 even this powerful and splendid aristocracy was itself the product of the plain of the original European immigation and descent pf the previous two hundred and fifty years For the hallucination with which the leading class of the South for these three centuries has beguiled itself that it was the hereditary first cousin of the British aristocracy is now thanks to the his torians on its last legs The less said about the bad boys of distinguished families that first came to Virginia and but for Captain John Smith would have disappeared in a dissolving view of shiftlessness and insubordination the better for all concerned At the breaking out of the Revolution the people of Virginia were in no superior sense the Not all- Cavaliere I people his was one its people General people amiable descendants of the Cavaliers al though a portion of their best men came of fathers who fought under the Stuarts For more than a century the British convict ships unloaded their freight upon the Atlantic southern colonies These so called convicts were not all criminals as we count criminals today but neither were they aristocrats To a considerable extent they were people imprisoned for debt non conformity to church law or some very minor misdemeanors During and after the Revolution that sent Charles I to the block and made Oliver Cromwell Protector the immigration to the South was a fair mixture of the followers of both the great English contending parties For their original interest in education and the backbone of their religion the Southern Atlantic colonies were indebted largely to the ScotchIrish and the Germans the latter declared by Washington their best class of immigrantsneither of them of the vaunted U AngloSaxon stock The plain truth is thai the Aristocracy of the south previous to 1860 vas founded on the Aristocracy Founded 01- 1Abllltyand Service plantation system of agriculture and in every essential feature was a New World copy of the British gentry It originated and was perpetuated for two centuries until icoo in the same way as itS British predecessor Somebody has said Sixty thousand thieves came over with William the Conqueror and founded the British Aristocracy Of course the descendants of the Norsemen pirates at that date would hardly dispute this title of nobility But the original British nobility came up precisely as the leading class in Boston New York and Chicago todayby pro motion for ability of the kind then most in demand Almost annihilated by the Wars ofthe Roses and the Protestant Reformation the Noble Lords were renewed in the same way by the promotion of men who in some way had rendered service to the state Today the British nobility is what it is because it lives with its front door wide open with the possibility that any ambitious and able boy can be added to its ranks for service in any profession from every class and calling The aristocracy that governed the South and politically governed the nation till 1860 was built on no such foundation of hay straw and stubble as an hereditary descent from its cousins in Motherland Indeed the North in 1860 were it interested in heredity could trace as noble a heritage Three hundred years ago Virginia included the present United States from the Atlantic coast as far westward as any white men had set up his Ebenezer There was land to burn at the disposal of the Crown Every man who landed on the Southern Atlantic coast and was enterprising enough to make his own way could become the possessor of an estate that would rouse the envy of a British country gen tleman The possession of slaves and first the raising of tobacco afterwards the monopoly of cotton and semitropical productions enabled a small percentage of this people withtruc British energy to forge to the front The real distinction of the British aristocracy is that from the first it has had a libcral wing to furnishlendership for the masses on the way to the present control of tfTe House of Commons by the powerful Middla Class Through the toils and conflicts of one hundredand seventyfive years this foremost class of the South by 1776 had been educated up to the British idea of liberal government and the demand for the whole American white people of British civic and personal rights- It may well be said that at this period our colonial was indeed the consummate flower of the British aristocracy William E Gladstone said When I was a boy I read the life of George Washington and believed him the greatest man that ever lived and I have never changed my opinion It was indeed significant that from this upper American class North and South a century ago there came to the front a group of men who according to thc same authority was pronounced the most eminent of its age in the fashioning of a republican order of society and government destined to become the common lot of mankindHad not been weighted to its final death with the barbarism of negro slavery this splendid Slavery the Ban of Southern Aristocracy order of republican nobility with the states it represented might have been indefinitely prolonged And for this burden it is hardly responsible Three hundred years ago every Christian nation was slaveholding and the masses of the continental European people in all essential rights and opportunities were half a century behind our ten millions of colored Ameri can citizens today But no man or no class can hold anyother man or class in chattel slavery without turning the back on every kind of man not of its own sort So from year to year the slaveholding and dominant class though de pendent on the Southern plain white people for the soldiery that cleared the land of the savage and fought its battles and cast its votes left it practically out of account in the recognition of its fundamental right to education and relied on the few that struggled up from the ranks to eminence to recruit its own ranks But with all this drawback this Aristocracy always in any emergency acting together under Jefferson expanded the republic to the summit of the Rocky Mountains and under Polk Scott and Fremont carried the flag to the Southwestern Pacjfic shore In 1860 there was probably no body of nobility in Europe so powerful able to plunge a Christian nation into a civil war for its own existence as the class that under Jefferson Davis for four years fought tune Union until amid the thunder of cannon in Old Virginia in hearing distance of the sea beach smitten by the fatal and perfidious bark that landed the first cargo of negro slaves it went to its death at Appomattox Any great Aristocracy like the present British that always keeps in touch with and at every critical period yields to the just demand of the plain people may be indefinitely continued to the honor and glory of a Christian civilization The fatal mistake of the Southern Aristocracy was that under the assertion of the right of selfgovernment for eleven States in the full blaze of the nineteenth century it struck for a new nationality which if achieved would not only have established the last slave empire in Christendom but would have left the plain white people with few or no rights their political masters were bound to respect But as abroad there was a liberal wing of this Southern Aristocracy Thomas Jefferson always held his political theory of Liberal Element of Southern Aristocracy democracy conditioned on his other theory of Universal Educa tion which included the emanci pation and education of the negroes and the training of every white child in a system reaching from the free common school to the State University In his sorrow and wrath that his own State would not adopt his splendid ideal he declared that his own people would become worse than the inhabitants of the Barbary States All the great Virginians were with him and he left a growing common school public that in every Southern State for forty years attempted to put his educational system on the ground And for the Southern Aristocracy as a whole it may he said nothing so became it as its leaving During the twenty years after 1864 when the sons of the fathers were still permitted to govern the South it adopted the American common school for both races and all classes essentially as set up in every Southern State by the power of the nation during the period of reconstruction Having done this its grandest work since the days of Washington it retired in good onjcr and no longer exists as a class in any Southern State But now what were the plain people of the South about during the first seventy years of the Republic up to the fatal year when at the call of the aristocracy they Shouldered arms and through four years made for the American soldiery a name and fame undisputed through the worldFirst a body now probably represented in the Northwest by as many people as the entire 2000000 of the old dominant Southern class discouraged by the prospect at home turned their backs upon the land of their birth and flockel to the new Northwest Along with them were a considerable number of the more liberalminded of the leading families in pursuit of a brooder opportunity than they left behind During the twenty years from 1830 to 1850 nearly the entire body of pronounced antislavery people in the South including the Quakers removed West Among them wore time parents of Abraham Lin coin and with him a large bodof young men whose names became household words twenty years later in service to the Union No Statetcontributed more valuable people of this sort to the three great Northern commonwealths across the Ohio River than Kentucky Those that stayed at home under the leader ship of the liberal wing the all round follow ers of Jefferson for thirty years from 1830 to 1860 agitated every Southern State with their demand for common school education for the white people They were opposed largely by the planter class and the Protestant clergy who at that time had greater influence in Southern edu cation than the Catholic clergy in Italy today Almost every Southern public man of national reputation understood and favored the educa tional movement with some of the foremost lead ers in the universities But by 1860 only two border States Missouri and Kentucky with North Carolina and Louisiana and scvral of the largest cities had succeeded in keening on the ground a system of common schools for white youth for which thoy were indebted to the labors of a group of educators that the children in these States in the future will crown with honor The history of this remarkable movement has been given to the country by the United States Bureau of Education and should be read by every school teacher in these sixteen States The result was that at the outbreak of the Civil War there was a common school public in the South the educa tional disciples of Jefferson who were ready to take advantage of the opportunity that came ten years later to plant the American common school in every Southern State The four years of war were a great university for time plain white people of the South First it The Civil War Brought the Plain People to the Fore gathered up a million of their young and abjcbodlc men and sent them on their travels through their own vast empire from Washington to Mexico Twenty years ago a Southern Governor told me that not one man in five hundred in his State traveled one hundred miles a year The stayathome Southerner of those States outside of the upper sort and the im migrating class lived within his own blat away from contact with his betters tied to leis own possessions and hampered by illiteracy in a way nobody has yet pub h 1 2 the world lie hla vigorous training Jj J ivn obstinate sense of independence as a to time almost constant wars of the past century in politics and religion chiefly by the public speaking and preach ing of the famous body of Southern orators Of whom now and then one still dazzles the country by his magnificent meteoric shower of splendid rhetoric But the majority of them knew next to nothing of the resources of their own State and section and the North in 1860 was farther away than Farther India and Darkest Africa to every bright Southern school boy today In their tremendous campaigns that in four years wore out a generation more completely than the wars of Napoleon which reduced the stature of trench manhood two inches this millfon in i eluding nearly all the young men for the first time were introduced to their own country and that was a great education They also learned that in war it is the brains behind the bayonets and the kind oftitan behind the gun that wins battles by land and sea And it finally dawned t upon them that the one thing in this world that can not be upset is the upper side of modern Christian civilization a civilization then repre sented by the three million American men in arms for the preservation of a Union founded on a pledge of the lives the fortunes and the sacred honor of their own great grandfathers and grand mothersThere was also not a little schooling in letterscifgoing on in the Southern army I heard of an entire regiment that during a winter encampmentt j in South Carolina learned to read as acting President of a Southern State university ChesapeakeBayber of the prisoners went to school and was there fitted for college In 1866 the whole South woke up to the idea that unless something was done at once a great multitude of its children from five to ten would be compelled to join the army of iliterates Also a new contingent five millions of freed = non was now added to the plain people of the South declared and for ten years by time most Hazardous experience in history raised to the position of sovereign cititenshlp and practically Under leader not always from the North wielding the government of eleven great American common wealths Then time North and the Nation came to the rescue and during the ten years of socalled rc eonstruetion established in everV Reconstruction Cave the- Common School to the South State for the first time the Amraican common school for the Ipeople realizing after eighty years the dream of Thomas Jefferson Of course the system was crude absurdly dab orate and expensive for the then povertystricken and demoralized South in some States attempting the impossibility of schooling the rac to gether But with all these drawbacks including the splendid work done among the negroes and poorer whites under the protection of the during the war it probably by 1876 had tall ghtIItwo millions of children to read had set n any thousand Southern young men and w m u to teaching school and had created in the upper strata of both race a demand for universal edu rejtseWhateverinjury to the South during this reconstruction period that fundamental work of establishing for the first time the American common school itr a century before declared by every great Southern statesman absolutely necessary to republican in stitutions entitles the North the negro cIt tCn who always voted for education and time nation to the everlasting gratitude of the whole Southern jwoplcThen it WM first rcalixeil that the greatest gain to every Southern State by the war was the emancipation of the plain white Southern pntple frown their old position of time past sevent five years First carne the opportunity hitherto only gained by leaving the South and taking up new lands in the West to obtain new homes in the best lands of their own States Thousands uf the great plantations were divided and the farmers hitherto confined to the less fertile uplands and time mountain country swnnncd down and made themselves at home Time number of farms in fourteen States bnu increased 1000000 from 1880 to lyoa During the past forty years prob ably more than a million vouitff men frotr thonanndfofthe Northeast There u no longer any class in any such position of influence in any Southern State as the slaveholding aristocracy of fifty years ago This itself has been a movement of incalculable importance to the plain white people vastly increasing and diversifying the products of time land opening the mines felling the for ests and introducing them to every grade of man ufacturing industry But even more important has been the istab lishmcnt of the entire American system ofoam mon school education that in orty years has loosened the Southern home purse to the extent of several hundred millions of dollars including today 3000000 white children and youth in every considerable city offering free education to every child having brought from the North prob ably more than a hundred millions of dollars invested in schools with a group of Southern benefactors establishing and endowing new universities and opportunitiesforevery class 67 the white people Of course the greatest result of this move ment has been with the plain nnnlnr the South I Aristocrat The Liberal who for the first time in three hun r dred years have been invited to share in the accumulated wisdom and knowledge of Christendom And here again has been demonstrated the fact that every Anglo Saxon and especially every American superior class is at heart patriotic and in the last emer gency ready to respond to tilt words of the Mal C w n 1Narw let Let him who is greatest among you be your servant Since the year 1870 for now thirty five years despite the usual Bourbon contingent that we have always with us the superior class of the South has given itself to the schooling of intettiIJ passed in the history of education- I speak now of what I know For twenty years I lived in the South in a Ministry of Education that included the whole people from lowest to highest For ten years past in writing forth National Government the history of the American common school I have learned how for two hundred and fifty years the people of the North have been at work and through what toils conflicts sacrifices and countless experiments they have at last given to the republic its most precious possessionthe present system of com mon private and incorporated schools of every grade And I say again in view of all this that whatever discount must be made for inevitable failure indifference and hostility no more valuable patriotic and thoroughly American work has been done during these thirty years than by the tirjgIof t higher education for both races and all classes No group of men better deserves enrollment with the fathers of their country than George Pea JohnsIfopkinsand

developed the class most dangerous in public affairsthe first crop of politick leaders raised up from a people inexperienced in the use of political power and long subservient to a powerfuland concentrated dominant class It was fit that South Carolina the revolutionary State of the South and tile State where the plain people had been from the beginning most thoroughly under the ban should lead in this out break under the leadership of that most remark able combination of the shrewd farseeing politician and champion political freak of American politicsthe Honorable Benjamin Tillman He saw that the hour had struck to summon the plain white people of the South to the government of at least the eleven cxrConfcdcratc States For the past fifteen years he has been the ablest and most conspicuous leader of the movement that has brought every State that bolted the Union in 1861 under the absolute political control of the plain people And he will be remembered chiefly from his praiseworthy educational labors for his own State although otherwise forgotten Nearly flvcry important post of public influence in every one of those States is now held by the type of politician that always appears as the first representative of such a movement Within these fifteen years with the one break of North Caro lina these eleven exConfederate States have been governed by this type of leaders who have thus become the political successors of the great statesmen identified with the founding the ex pansion and largely with the glory of the na tion The plain white people of the South

way they should go and according to the national ideal of a Christian re publican civilization- So here we are today a people of eighty millions no longer AngloSaxon but of the new cosmopolitan

Every superior r man and woman is a brevet deity promoted at last to the Pagan Pantheon where is gathered together a celestial rabble best represented in the mythologies of Greece and Rome witlt the

which yet only half understood and less than half applied has already created what we call Christendom In two sentences contain thirtytwo words all of which could be engraved within the golden circle of the American eagle value ten dollarsJesus said Let him who is greatest among you be your servant Even as the son of man came not to be ministeredunto but to minister and to give his life a ransom for many Just in proportion as every socalled Christian people has squared up to this su preme law of human life this absolute constitu tion of human government it has become a per manent nationality and today only as any nation is working on that line is it a vital power in the progress of mankind Now the plain people of the South for the first time in political power and fast becoming The Plain People What Leaders Shall They Follow supreme in Southern society is taking its first lessons in the art of republican government ac cording to the ideals of the fathers These ideals hundred years ago were the highest conception then reached of the meth od of solving all race questions laid down by the greatest teacher and statesmen because the Sav ior of mankind I am not here to tell you what success or failure has attended this beginning under the sort of Southern leadership that ap pears on the first Monday of every December in the Capitol at Washington Only let us not imagine for a moment that the acts of half a dozen Legislatures and the vaticinations of the gospel of sociology of which Orator John Temple Graves is the prophet are to be the permanent de cisions of the fifteen millions of our white South ern folk For every white man in the South oday has become in an eminent sense one of the plain people and in the outcome we shall see there as everywhere the survival of the fittest Nobody cares what company a gentleman in Virginia or Texas chooses to keep if he manages to keep outside of the revised statutes But every gentleman and lady in this Republic will some day find out that there is no permanent class or caste in this Nation made up of every shad ow of a shade of color and every variety of race and previous condition on the face of the earth So our friends can be Excused from lying awake o nights scheming to preserve the purity of the AngloSaxon race by remanding twenty mil lions now under the American flag to the condi tion of the old European serfdom that Russia is lying awake o nights with hideous dreams just now agonizing how to change to a new Russian citi zenship If these admirable people will read their New Testament through the spectacles of the common Christianity and realize that they have today the grandest opportunity on earth in the edu a and training of their ten millions of coIorlli UzcM7 rictl tb be Anglo Saxons but to b come the best that the Lord of us all had in+ mind at their introduction upon earth they can safely leave the business of evolving the new American order of society in His hands For in this Republic the best society means the society of the best people of all sorts and condi tions This uppermost Of all upper classes lives with its doors and windows open four square to all comers Anybody frpm anywhere may come in and live and be happy as long as he understands and tries to live up to the conviction that all his superiorities arc loaned to him by God for the sake of the genral welfare And he will ccas to be a member of Gods American aristocracy when he makes up his mind not to live up there but to leave the Fathers house and waste his substance inany kind of riotous living But he must not be surprised if he finds up there a certain little Hebrew widow who one day sur rou1 Ued by the smart set of Jerusalem modest ly appeared at the public treasury and cast in all her living two mites less

represented by the North today can do little save what it has practically for the past twentyfive years doneleave these eleven exConfederate States in a political minority as long as they please to isolate themselves from the present American ideals and policies 6f na tional life Meanwhile we can show them in dealing wtith the child peoples in our new colo nies our way of solving the race question But there is a point beyond which no party or State can go in dealing with those twenty millions ofour new citizens without coming up to the Captains office to settle And thanks to the superior class of the colored people under the leadership of their first statesman who has the right to assume the name of Washington in connection with that portion of the Southern white people who will sec that in dealing with them the Republic re ceives no harm we can safely for the present leave the masses of the plain people of the South to their own home schoolmaster for instruction- and leadership In due time they will doubtless touch elbows with our Christian civilization and realize the beautiful ideal of union now set forth by our preacher President in his travels through the Southland to his months interview with the inhabitants of the wilderness who probably by our grandchildren wilt be gathered into schools where the lion and the lamb may lie down out side each other and be at peace Our magnificent North in its joy and glad ness over the ending of the Civil War has never The Border State and Mountain Loyalty InoblyMissouri Kentucky West Virginia Maryland and Delaware with the almost united patriotism of the entire Appalachian region and other por tions of the Southwest it is not an exaggeration to say that to them and the descendants of the im migrating Southern people im the Northwest the Union must have been indebted for well nigh 500000 of its three million soldiers first and last under arms With the stategic importance ol this great buffer between the fighting North and the eleven Confederate States and above all the marvelous political strategy of Abraham Lincoln in the White House to say nothing of the splendid military and naval leadership of Thomas and Farragut and the group they represented it is not too much to assert that if the Republic was not saved by the Southern loyal soldiery three times the number at any time commanded bj Washington it was saved from perhaps another four years of General Shermans Hell with terrors of further desolation and more enduring unreconciliationSince struggle for an allround Amer icanism in these five States even extending to Virginia North Carolina and Tennessee has been prolonged and is now only in the beginning West Virginia was the first Southern State that moved in the establishment of the full common school even before the close of the Civil War Of these 500000 white and colored soldiery none more deserving of the nations gratitude than the strong fighters from the highlandregion which perhaps sent forth men and boys a half of this patriotic host During those awful years living in the city of Cincinnati theq the best Northern watchtower of the Southwest com pelted by an unworkable body to stay at home and do my best for my country my frequent habit was to visit the landings at the river when the boats came in from above crowded with women and children who all the way from the Queen City to the Big Sandy were cared for by the good people along the northern Ohio shore It was then that I said to myself This country owes to these fathers and mothers who like the widow of Palestine have given their all and then thrown themselves in the training that shall make their children and their childrens children worthy of themselves God helping me I will enlist in that war And twenty years later I heard the call and went forth and now for five and twenty years have done my uttermost to help my coun try pay that debt This home leadership that shall

to preserve the purity of the AngloSaxon or any other race on earth shall not prevail This policy now everywhere insinuated in the upper circles of society blurted in trade unions of foreign boni andonly halfnaturalized workmen or boastfully even eloquently proclaimed in legislative and university halls when looked through Is only the old story of the children of the good Methodist minister who begged their father that they might learn to dance No my dear children dancing is sinful But Pa didnt you and Ma dance when you were oungIIYes my chit dren but we have seen the folly of it Oh Pa just let us dance and sec the folly of it loo This crowd of our highstepping new statesmen and social philosophers can not like the aristocracy before them legally hold the colored laboring class of the South in chattel slavery That body of men two hundred and fifty years ago followed the rest of the world itr their organization of labor jn a semitropical country Their historians have the right to claim that the two hundred years of 1r negro slavery by the Providence that is evermore from evil still educing good was a university torching their bondman the three fundamentals of American civilization the habit of continuous work and the knowledge of the language and the religion of the worlds chief republic But now when the entire white population of the South is called upon by this class of its political and social k leaders to imitate the Russia of half a century ago and rcmntul 20000000 of Americans to perpetual t serfdom with the denial of every right especially dear to every man ready to fight for the old flag the country calls upon the sons and daughters of the loyal South of 61 to save its friends and brethren from seeing the folly of dancing to that playedout tune In this grand campaign of education the newest new South will have behind it not only the overwhelming masses of the North but as Abraham Lincoln wrote in his proclamation of freedom the considerate judg

through the discipline and methods of the new education accessible to the plain people now l sitting in the scat of judgment in the South But more than any college of the ordinary type Berca represents the loyal South that with the mighty North a generation ago saved the Union not only for you and me but for those who earnestly did their bravest and heft to tear themselves away from its protecting awls Remember whatever goes up or whatever goes down Berca College of Kentucky is here to stay and do its own beat in helping to educate the twenty millions of the nations little children thus consecrating itself to paying the nations debt to the heirs of those who fought and died to save the nation before you were born You come here not merely toClget an education but so be reminded that to you and tho like of you the country looks to lead the grand procession of the plain people of the South of all races anti conditions towards the only Union that is proof against wars more terrible than the past for those who will liv hart after you arc dead I urge you to give the best years your manhood and womanhood to your own 1of to the little children and the ambitious who can not come herr but arc waiting to hear all about the good tidings that God through your faitjifnl teachers and consecrated President is so ready to impart Meanwhile dont forget how to shoot straight as your great grandfathers at Kings Mountain your grandfathers at New Orleans and your fathers under Abraham Lincoln their comnmnderinchlcf shot at everybody who attempted to destroy this re public You will need oven more rapidfiring guns than theirs to clear the land of vermin and face every enemy of your country everywhere around the world But dont forget that your call just now is to teach the voting Idea how to shoot Young men and women who come to Rata from the North dont come here because knowl edge is served up at a cheaper rate than at home bya faculty now doing more and better work for less money than any body of good teachers I know Strike hands and hearts with these your brothers and sisters and go back resolved that j no such barbarism as the ignorance of the Chris tian wayof living and working together for the common good shall prevail within your beat so help you God 1 shall not live to see even the full dawn of this coming of the kingdom in our beloved land But as old
