The University has been highly fortunate this year in having a series of lectures by prominent men dealing with contemporary social problems and other remedies. Subjects that are engrossing the interest of the entire country have been presented by men whose keen thought and tireless energy have placed them among the country's leaders.

The good effects that can accrue from such a series of lectures can hardly be overstated. We carry them away as unreckoned parts of our college education, and yet they cannot fail to be among the most valuable. The sincere gratitude of the University is due the committee of the Faculty that provided so generously for this series of notable lectures.
