Excerpt from The Alumni Review, Vol. 5: October, 1916 I do t kw what Hinton J ames thought of what the President said. Students here seem always to be rmally hospitable toward listening to advice, and abrmally sensible about forgetting as much of it as they don't care for. Being a freshman James may have felt that the President needn't worry about the country (some one has said that a college ought to be a wonderfully wise place - that freshmen bring such a lot of kwledge, and the seniors never take any away) that he could look after the country in his odd moments if the President would only tell him what there was going on w to keep a fellow from being bored to death. Or, if he was t possessed of this confident spirit of let Hinton do it, he may have been of that other type that has reaction whatever to the sharp chal lenge of opportunity and the appeal for a critical decision. He may have been like the darkey who passed a factory as the whistles were blowing for the critical hour of dinner: Blow, blow, he said, with calm resignation to his fate, Dinner time for some folks; but 'tain't thin' but twelve o'clock for me!
