function of a university to catch these youths whom Nature herself has ordained to art, literature, philosophy, science, or invention, and train them for the work they are specially fitted to do. Society, too, is profoundly concerned for their intellectual nurture ; for on them the progress of civilization depends. It is to encourage and assist indigent scholars of distinguished capacity that Cornell University needs endowments for the foundation of scholarships and the establishment of loan funds, as well as for the augmentation of the general endowment of the University which will enable the administration to keep the charges for tuition within reach of the great majority of the people.

As the President stated in closing the Report for 1904-1905, Cornell University needs millions for men. It is the faculty which makes a university. But able, well-trained, and effective teachers and investigators cannot be retained permanentlyin subordinate positions. the present time the situation of many of these men at Cornell is too truly described in the words of the Psalmist-" for promotion cometh

cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south.” Yet, if such men are to be kept in the profession, they must receive promotions in due time to assistant professorships and full professorships. Endowments for this purpose are the greatest need of Cornell University to-day. And, after this augmentation of the intellectual forces which make and mould the University, the next need is of funds for buildings to accommodate the students who in ever-increasing numbers flock to Cornell. An auditorium for lectures and addresses to the student body and for social purposes; a gymnasium in proximity to the new playground and athletic field for the promotion of the physical training of all students and not merely of athletes ; a hall for class instruction and laboratory work to be used by the large classes in civil engineering ; either new machine shops or a laboratory for the conduct of the experimental work in mechanical and electrical engineering; and dormitories or halls of residence or cottages and a dining hall on the Campus-the best site in America—for the now scattered and poorly accommodated student population, who lose the inestimable advantage of social intercourse with fellow students and mutual education under a common roof and who pay increasingly high prices for their board and lodgings in private houses ;these are some of the most urgent objects in which wise, generous-hearted, and public-spirited men of wealth might make splendid and enduring investments at Cornell University.
