Scott Will Tell in Memorial Service
Tuesday Night American Traits
of "Leader of Men"
Stalwart Americanism, which char-
acterized the life of Theodore Roose-
velt, will be the keynote of the Roose-
velt Memorial service to be held at 8
p. m. Tuesday in the auditorium. Pres.
Stratton D. Brooks, anonunced Friday.
Dr. A. C. Scott, personal friend of
Roosevelt, will deliver the address,
"Roosevelt, Leader of Men."
University students will be asked to
give 10 cents each, or as much more
as they wish, to the memorial fund.
These payments may be made after the
memorial program Tuesday night.
Cleveland county's quota for the drive
is $1000 and if every student gives the
amount asked, it is believed the univer-
sity will go over its share.
William Boyce Thompson, New York
City, president of the Roosevelt Mem-
orial association, in a letter to Dr.
Brooks yesterday, wrote:
"Theodore Roosevelt embodied, as
no other American in our history, those
American conceptions of equality, of
rights, and of obligations, of liberty
under the law, and of a people united
not by ties of race or tradition but
by the bond of faith in a great idea.
His name will, through generations to
conic, be a smybol of orderly govern-
ment and undivided allegiance to the
American flag and for all it stands.
"It is essential, above all, that the
boys and girls and young men and
young women of the country be led to
see the principles we have in mind
when we use the word Americanism.
The schools and colleges have done
magnificent service in sending forth as
Americans the heterogenous throngs
that poured into their gates."
