Editor Daily Transcript:
Suggestions have been requested
with regard to a memorial for the
soldiers of Cleveland county and
surrounding country who gave up
their lives for their country.
"Sooner*" have already collected
some $500 for a memorial for the
University men who died in tlie
war, and this is just a beginnm;.?. |
They are going on with the col-
lections next year.
Why not combine all these ef-
forts and agree on some one me-1
morial ? Instead of puting money ,
into a building that is really not!
needed, why not plan for a splen-'
did sum for books? Books have
thought, and thought makes men
and women. Why not have a
Grand Library for the University
—a library commensurate with
the needs of that institution and
with the wealth of this great and
growing state? This University
is the greatest institution in Okla-
homa and should be its greatest
pride. The library is for the ben-
efit of every department in the
University and the University is
the benefactor not only of the
county but of the state. The stu-
dent bofly is interested in a me-
morial, and no doubt the Alumni
■will be deeply interested, as are
the alumni in all the universities
in the country.
If we are to have a memorial,
let it be something that will en-
dure, something that will be wor-
thy of those who have given their
all—even life itself.
Mr. Widener of the city of Phil-
' adelphia was a great lover of
' books, and had a large and rare
1 collection. When the Titantic
| went down, he was on board and
lost his life. His mother gave
[ his books to Harvard University
| in his memory. Harvard had not
' room for the books, but she ap-
predated them so much that she
gave two million dollars to build
the splendid library building at
Harvard that bears his name!
I'iiiat magnificent gift is a bene-
faction not only to Cambridge,
out to the whole United States.
' Professors and students from far
! and near seek this school for its
' If the many students graduating
from the high schools would im-
mediately enter the University in-
I stead of scattering out to the
many small colleges of the coun-
try, what a tremendous force,
what a grand University this
would be, with many thousands in
attendance. A united move for a
great library would be a strong
inducement for students to give
the University preference over
any other school.
Besides, we would be honoring
the dead in a way to immortalize
their memory; and, at the same
time, building a Library and Uni-
versity second to none in the
whole country. Our students and
teachers could them do their re-
search work at home, if we had the
Library that Oklahoma needs and
can have if she wants it.
Oklahoma has many million-
aires. There are men in the state,
and women, too, who nvould gladly
put thousands into a Great Li-
brary for the use and benefit of
the present and future generations
who would not care to invest in
some small and perishable achieve-
Memorials should have the
stamp of immortality; something
that will not perish. Big ideas ?
Yes, but big ideas must be fore-
runners of great achievement.
There is every reason why Okla-
homa should ha\^ her dreams
come true, but she must first
have the dream. The vision must
precede the reality; we must
visualize the Great Library in
the brain, before it materializes
in the University.
Every citizen of Norman should
take personal interest in upbuild
ing a still greater Univer.
sity, for what does the University
mean to Norman.
A substantial citizen of Norman
said on one occasion, when the
suggestion had been made to move
the University to some other city |
of the state: "No, never. If you
move the University Norman
would be merely a whistling sta- |
tion. Fast trains would not stop
here." Maybe it is not so bad as
that, but this citizen was a loyal
one, and he meant only good—but [
he realized what the University
meant to Norman; that the town 1
:' largely sustained by the Univer-
sity. This should be mutual. Ev. I
ery town in the state should be in-
terested in its State University,
and Norman should be especially
interested as being the seat of the
So, let us all join together and
establish a memorial that will be
a real memorial—a great library j
for the University of Oklahoma.
