Yesterday morning Rev. Washington Gladden ended the first of his two terms of service as university preacher. He left us to go back to his church and to his pastoral duties, and left in us a keen sense of gratitude for what he has done for us. Since Dr. Gladden's first day with us the large attendance at chapel exercises has kept up undiminished-certainly a fine tribute to his popularity. There is always danger, when a man speaks every day and where the nature of the case rather makes it necessary that he dwell on his own particular views and hobbies, that he will repeat himself and become tiresome. If Dr. Gladden had done this his audience would slowly have dwindled away. Of his lectures at the Divinity School we have heard the most complimentary remarks. We only hope that his service has been as pleasant and profitable to him as to us. For his successor, Dr. Parks, we bespeak the same cordial support from the students.
