Young friends, we are delighted to

each other�he took a trip and got
seasick, but still made friends�1 ex-
pect you will get homesick, in fact.
hope you will. If you want to cry go
ahead. There is no regulation against
it. But seriously, we are delighted
that you have found it so you can
come to college this year, and doubly
pleased to have you here with us.
George Peabody made this statement
on one occasion "Education, a debt due
from present to future generations
If the people of this great Republic of
ours could realize the great truth in
those few words by that great man
who loved his fellowmen�"Education,
a debt due from present to future
j us do) that it is a debt that the State
of North Carolina owes; to the boys
i and girls of this old state of ours.
And North Carolina is striving, some-
times successfully, sometimes unsuc-
cessfully, but always with earnestness
to pay this debt that the present gen-
eration owes to the one coming for-
ward. For that reason the State of
North Carolina has built this insti- .
tution. Two million dollars, in round
numbers, have been spent here to give
the young white men and women who
wish to become teachers an opportun-
ity to get that kind of education which
will give them the greatest opportun-
ity to be of service in paying the debt
which we owe to the children of North
Carolina who are here. You have
come to this institution because it i
the institution of your choice; you
have come with a purpose, because
that has been characteristic of every
freshman class that has entered our
institution. You have come from
your homes with the determination
that you are going to fulfill a part, at
least, of the ambition of your lives
and the ambition of those back home
who have made sacrifices that yon
might come to college. You will meet
teachers and officers who have dedi-
cated their lives to the young people
of this state, but it is just as well
that I tell you at the beginning that
we cannot educate you. All this or-
ganization, all this money spent by tht
state, all the efforts put forward, the
annual appropriation of a hundred and
fifty thousand dollars is here to give
you an opportunity to educate your-
selves. It is an individual proposi-
tion. Do not work for your teachers.
Do not work for a grade. You are
here to grow and develop intellectual-
ly, to acquire facts, to get knowledge,
to get power that will enable you to
go back and be of service somewhere
in some community in this state, but
it is your jon. These teachers and of-
ficers are your friends. I am glad to
tell you young people that you have
come to a college where the whole or-
ganization is working together as one
perfect unit to help the students who
come here to attain the things that
they left home to attain, but it is
There is one thing that I find not

years to learn that.

authorities haven't required these j
girls to come back, and the State of
North Carolina hasn't paid the ex- !

Ignorance, 1 sometimes think, is the
worst influence in the world. Ignor-
ance, the world over, has done more
damage to the human family than
war, famine, and pestilence combined.
George Washington probably died be-
cause of the ignorance of doctors who
attended him. Many, many young
men and women have died because of
the ignorance of those who were sup-
posed to doctor them. The terrible
condition this world is in today is be-
cause of the ignorance that has domi-
nated, the ruling classes in the vari-
us nations of the world. We are
bere as a band or an army with out-
faces to the world's worst enemy�
ignorance, and endeavoring to help
subdue that enemy. You have come
to join the ranks and we are here to

aid the food was the trouble, said
there wasn't anything she could eat�
: said she wanted some corn bread, col-
lards, and fat meat: That girl did go
home�and married three weeks after-
; ward. But I do want you to realize
i that it will not be like home, and there
j will be a lot of things to learn. This
organization is builded to fit on top of
5 our high school education Down in
L'ae lower grades you didn't have much
choice; in high school you had a little
more and with the greater liberty
came greater responsibilities. As you
go along in the scale of education the
greater the liberty the greater , re-
sponsibility. We are not going tc
try to make you study your lessons;
we are going to give the opportunity.
Be not deceived; God is not mocked;
whatsoever a man soweth that shall
he also reap. If you do your task
your career in college will be worth-
while, but it is your responsibility.
You will have a few, not many, but
a few rules and regulations to observe
and I think you should realize that
most of them are made by the stu-
dents themselves out of their experi-
ence in the college. They have made
a number of regulations to govern
themselves. And young friends, the
world today is suffering for the lack
of intelligent leadership, more than it
has during the past fifty years. We
need young men and women with
vision. We need young men and
women with ideals, who are willing to
sacrifice to accomplish the worth-
while. I hope that you will join the

friends, there is a great task lying out

of your state; to break the shackles
and to set the youth of North Caro-

Chieago - The mud pies that chil-

enjoyment by many adult; in various
parts of the world, according to facts
revealed in "Geogphagy " a book pub-
lished recently by Dr. Rerthoia I.au-
fer, curator of anthology at the Field
Museum of Natural History.
Dr. lifer has made extensive re-
si arch in g ophagy, whieh is the prac-
tice of ealin.tr clay, loam and other
type of soil, and has published the
results of his studies throughout
many countries in both ancient and
modern times. His investigations be-
gan with records of earth eating in
Traces of the custom have been
found in Indo-China, Malayasia,
Polynesia, Melani ;a. Australia, In-
dia, Burma, Siam, Central Asia, Si-
beria, Persia. Arabia, Africa, Europe,
North America, Mexico, � Central
America and South America.
As a rule not every kind of earth is
eaten, according to Dr. Laufer, but
only those kind- which recommend
themselves through certain quailities
of eolor, odor, flavor, softness and
Gcophagy occurs among the most
civilized nations as well as among
primitive tribes. It hears no relation
to climate, race, creed or culture. It
is a habit that oecurs among individ-
uals and not among any particular
tribal or social group.
The women of Spain, says Dr. Lau-
fer, once believed the eating of earth
was an aid to a delecate complexion
and the ladies of ihi Spanish aristo-
cracy in the 17th Century had such a
passion for geophagy that the ecclesi-
astic and secular authorities took
steps to combat the evil.
