President Thwing, of Western Reserve University, in a recent address to the students of Syracuse University, said: "It is significant that we call the college not almus pater but alma mater. She gives to us intellectual life and cradles that life in its feebleness. It is almost as rare to find a son complaining of his college as it is to find him complaining of his home. Happy is the man who has two mothers whom he reverences."
