Notes and Documents
to any other whom you wish should never be forgotten in some
commemorative aspect of this splendid development, you have
an opportunity not to be lightly esteemed. And, if you have not
money to give, then let your voice be heard in your community
and at the capital of the state urging generous support of the
University for common good.
My subject has led me to the retrospect, but my thoughts have
been continually turning to the future. The University of Texas
with its faculty of 1go and its 2500 students, has already taken its
place among the great institutions in the west. What will another
twenty-five years make of it? Some familiar names will be added
on the lengthening line of tablets in this auditorium, and many
of you whose presence adds so much to the joy of this home-
coming will be absent when the roll is called in 1933; but every
gap in the ranks will be filled. And they whose blessed fortune
it shall be to see the day will find o,ooo students gathered in
a university of which the material equipment, the work and the
ideals place it side by side with the foremost in the land.
Here’s what’s next.
