The celebration of the opening of Clark University marks an event which is bound to be of the greatest importance to educational interests throughout the country. A year ago when the foundation of the university was still a matter of doubt the CRIMSON opposed its endowment on the ground that the money could be put to better advantage by some of the larger colleges of the country, and from that opinion expressed under the then existing conditions we are not disposed to withdraw.
Now, however, that Clark University is established upon a seemingly permanent basis it seems to us beth fair and wise that it should receive the unqualified sympathy of all sister institutions. The energy and determination shown by its founder and corporation certainly deserves our commendation, and if we may judge from its beginning Clark University certainly bids fair to have an enviable record. That this may be realized ought to be the wish of every friend of American education.
