Sehurman and reading a letter of re
gret from Hev. Dr. Charles M. Tyler, of
Ithaca, whom the alumni had hoped i xm
would be one of the eursts. "
James Gardner Sanderson, upon be
ing introduced as toastmaster, made
reference to the remarkable growth of
Cornell during tho decade that Presi
dent Sehurmnn has been at its head,
and then Introduced President Schur
liiiin to respond to the loasl "Cornell."
Dr. Schurman's response was In the
nature of a survey of Cornell's growth
and standing. Spiking of the Yale bi
centennial, the two hundred and fiftieth
anniversary of Harvard and the one
hundred nnd fiftieth anniversary of
Princeton, all of which were recent
ceUbrations, he said that one cannot
attend these without being brought to
the realization of tho advantage a uni
versity enjoys by reason of that one
circumstance of age.
"Yale. Harvard and Princeton enjoy
this enormously," he went on to say.
"Cornell Is new. It has to stand on
merit. I am not saying we have more
merit than any other university. That
would be an ungracious thing. What
I would bring out is that Cornell has
not the advantage of the circumstance
of age. This being the case, the pres
ent position of Cornell In the college
world Is something or which Cornelians
can well be proud. Having nothing but
n present, she has taken, according to
tho concensus or public opinion, a ptacu
among the great universities of the
Dr. Schurmnn then gave some inter
esting statistics concerning the univer
sity. GROWTH OF MRMP.F.P.SIIIP.
