RECOGNITION OF EXCELLENCE

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

One of the most tangible rewards given to those who devote their lives to the teaching of young men is to be found in the various endowed chairs to which they may at some time be appointed. In a vocation the benefits of which come largely by the way and unrecognized by any great percentage of the population, the few opportunities for personal recognition which exist are but the more welcome because of their rarity. Such occasions as the present in which no less than five professorships are awarded to as many men should be a source of satisfaction not only to the recipients but to the University which has the privilege of bestowal.

The rich traditions which attatch to many of these chairs adds responsibility as well as dignity and distinction to these positions. Serious hopes for the steady maintenance of these traditions joins with the congratulations due the present appointees.
