Mr. President and Gentlemen of thw
University: The war has come home
to the university. It has come home
to our hearts. It has spoken with its
great and final emphasis.
- At the opening of school last yeav
I expected that Wiley Burford today
would be sitting with us attending
his classes, preparing for his senior
examinations. Today we have his pic picture
ture picture and his memory. Today he is
horfored for all time as the first man
from the university who gave his life
for his country.
I am reluctant to speak about him,
because words, any words, though
they were winged and filled with the
lilt and light of genius, cannot express
what you and I feel today. I am re reluctant
luctant reluctant to speak about him, because
he would be the first man to depre depreciate
ciate depreciate heroics; the last, to wish any
theatrical interpretation placed upon
his death." He was of a reticent dis disposition,
position, disposition, and would not want any fine
act of his to be exploited. Yet I will

It is hard to tell the simple truth
about Wiley Burford without appear appearing
ing appearing to exaggerate. No man better
equipped by nature and education to
study law has ever entered the law
school. And he studied it. He didn't
try to make his academic education
substitute for the law. He used his
previous training as a mere instru instrument
ment instrument to acquire law. He was intellec
tually honest. No superficial explana-
tion or dogmatic proposition satisfied
him. He dug down to the bottom,
seeking the reason in the life of the
law and all things else besides.
And then he was so teachable!
Sometimes a man of liberal training
comes to the law school with an atti
tude which says, "I can eat up your
little system of laws without much
effort and without troubling you for
much assistance." Wiley Burford was
a man of brilliant literary attain attainments,
ments, attainments, yet he wanted all the instruc instruction
tion instruction he could possibly get. He never
occupied a rear seat in the class room.
I can see him now seated near the
front and to the right of me, notebook
and pencil in his hands, his keen eyes
following every gesture I made, every
diagram I placed upon the blackboard.
Best of all he retained what he learn learned.

mers. Summers. Each membejr of the faculty
was asked to contribute the hardest
hypothetical question he could devise.
I spent about two hours writing a tort
question so complex I hardly knew
how to answer it myself. It wasn't
expected that any student would pass
the examination. It was designed
merely to show how big and baffling
the law is. Wiley Burford took the ex examination
amination examination in good faith. He put his
best thought into it. And when Dr.
Summers examined his paper, he said
he thought it was entitled to over 90
per cent. Such a man was destined
for success. Had death not cut him off
untimely, he would have realized a
career of extraordinary usefulness
and distinction in his profession.
But there are other qualities of
greater value in the long run than
exceptional mental vigor and superb
concentration. To win unqualified ad admiration,
miration, admiration, 6ne also must be good,
clean, honest, practical, courteous,
brotherly, chivalrous. He must, in the
fullest sense, be a gentleman. And
Wiley Burford was. His opinions were
so right, liis personality so attractive,
that I have sought and acted upon his
judgment. His character has left an
impress on us that will not fade out.
I remember well the time and place
that I first learned he had died in
France. I was at a public gathering.
AH the joy went out of the day f or
me, and my heart was touched very
deeply as boy after boy came up to
me and asked, "Have you heard the
news about Wiley Burford?"
Yes, he is dead. But as I think how
"Grim death has vanished, leaving in
The shining glory of the living dead."
For he lives. Somehow he lives. He
lives now in our hearts. Nothing can
now take him from us our friend,
our comrade, who made the supreme
sacrifice that places him first forever
upon the university's roll of honor
that we shall keep inviolate.
And if his mute lips could speak
to us, as of old, he would tell us
simply to do our duty; to hate wrong
and to love right; to love life but to
love justice more; and. never, never
to compromise with evil, but to en endure

I am glad that we are to have his

Funeral Services of Lieut. Burford

started to walk silently away.
The funeral of another comrade

be ended. Then came a sudden crash
as a shell burst a couple of hundred

mourners and causing a shower of

That is not a" loyal thing to do, of course, and few of us realize
that we are helping the enemy when we waste money. Pretty hard
to define what waste is. One man's waste may be another man's
economy. In a general way, waste in war time may be defined as the
buying of anything not essential to health and efficiency. Every
dollar one spends for unnecessary things commands good3 and ser services,
