"The spirit of the age, as revealed by statistics, says that the present stages towards professional life are too circuitous and slow. Harvard has her choice of resisting this spirit on the ground that it is too practical, money-serving, and unprogressive, or of bowing to the necessities of the situation, lowering her standard for the first degree and then proving her devotion to learning by making her opportunities for advanced and graduate work richer and wider than they have ever been before. If she does the former college men will grow to be fewer and fewer in proportion to the population. If she does the latter, they will hold their rightful numbers, and her second degrees will increase in value as a badge of true learning."
