Excerpt from Memorials of Bucknell University, 1846 1896, Lewisburg, Pa

Divine vocation, he will not do his work with eye service as a pleaser of men, but with singleness of heart, as unto God. Another capital reason for this spirit of work is, that most of our students are from families of moderate means. Their future is not made for them; they must make it for themselves. Such men are the coming leaders of the world. To induce such men to enter its classes, our oldest American university expends annually to Since it has adopted that policy its graduates are again taking the lead in every vocation. Our attendance is composed almost wholly of such men. Consequently the faithful, hard working student at Bucknell is not regarded as an oddity, as is the case in some colleges, but work here has always been regarded as honorable and the worker has not been despised.

His mental force, his power of will, his self-command, his social tact, above all his warm sym pathy, are much more potential in education, and much more valuable than learning and intellectual acumen. It is in the character of the professors that the Christian school should be pre-eminent. It is a mooted question what part of the curriculum should be given to religious instruction. What place Shall the Bible have? Many think that if there could be daily recitations in the Bible, in all the classes, that the school would be pre-eminently Christian. Ido not disparage Bible-study in the college; on the contrary, I favor it. Yet you might have the Bible given as promi nent a place as the most ardent advocate of such teaching would ask, and the school be atheistic. The only place in the Christian school that the.
