President Eliot returns to Cambridge today after his two months' trip to the Southwest and South. His journey can well be compared with a march of triumph, for everywhere he has been received with the enthusiasm shown only to the greatest men of the nation. His days have been busy ones, days which would tax the vigor of the most hardy. But throughout Mr. Eliot has given gladly of his powers for the benefit of the University which he represents, and has undoubtedly done much to strengthen Harvard's rapidly growing influence in the South.
It will be a pleasure to see him again about the Yard in these last short weeks of his long term as president, and we are glad to hear that he will address the undergraduates, a few times more before his retirement from the office which he has filled so ably.
