THE RHODES SCHOLARSHIP.
The men chosen this year to represent American universities, as holders of the Rhodes scholarships should take to Oxford with them qualities which few have possessed in the past. Cecil Rhodes was a man of action and of vision and the spirit which led him to the Dark Continent and which enabled him to create the British Empire in Africa is the spirit which he would have liked to see embodied in those who should hold his scholarships at Oxford.
If the bond between the English-speaking peoples is to be a living one it must be cemented by living men; men who will possess qualities of real leadership as well as of mere intellectual distinction; men who will make their brains serve others as well as themselves. Harvard men of this type should take advantage of an opportunity which but few are privileged to enjoy.
