Address of Governor H enry Horner LL. D. ~·--------------------------------------------------------------

Delive red on the occasion of hi'i r eceiving th e Hon ora ry D egree of Doctor s of Laws at St. Viato r College, Octol>er, 19, 1934.

President Cardinal, Members of the Faculty, Students and Friends of St. Viator College, Ladies and Gentlemen : This afternoon, riding across th e one hundred and fifty mil e s tre t ch of our State wh ich lies between h e r e · and Springf ie ld, with the ever-chang ing panorama of colorful landscap e, rendered more brilliant by ''Octobe r' s bright blue weath e r' ' , brings m e happily to th ese ce r e monies which r deem of importance not alone t o Illinois of today, but to Illinois of the futur e. This is an occasion which brings 1 me both pleasure and honor. need not t ell you bow greatly I appreciate th e fact that St. Viator' s College has deem ed me worthy of receiving an honorary degre e f rom it. To those who are called to high onice in th ese s trenuous times , with its cares a nd r es ponsibilities, it is a relief and a satisfaction when th e re comes a word of praise and of e ncoura g em ent. We asse mbl e to participate in the event that marks the transition o! th e presiden cy of an histo ri c institutiOn from one g r eat educator to another, whose record gives ass uran ce of g reat accomplishments in th e six years to which your rules limit th e tenure of that office. Equall y great is the privilege of affirming my abiding faith •tl the powe r and th e value of higher education whi ch St. Viator's symbolizes. Never befor e has there existed a greater n eed for higher education lhan at this criti cal period of our national life. After all, the prog ress of civilization is primarily th e result of man's s earch for knowledge and when that search through education ceases, civiJization itself will cease its progress. Y.ou of this college and of this neighborhood are the successors of those who w er e a mong the first to appreciate the value of education and its intimate correlation with th e forward move ments of humanity. St. Viator College rests upon his tori c ground. Here s tood one of tbe early s ettlem en ts of true pionee rs . Bourbonnais owes its very exls tence to th e fa c t that in the days when this, our present state of IUinot.s, was a wilde rness, the re w ere devoted m e n who pressed on along paths h e r etofo re untouched by civiltza tlon's wes tward trend, in order that tbey might s pread the blessings of re ligion and edu cation, not onl y among tb ei r co ntemporaries, but to th e gene r a tion s tb a t w e r e to follow th e m .

impo r tant things usually follow and take care of themselves. It was one of you r great Popes, Benedic t XV, who in 1921- th e last y ear of his life-gave expression to his es tima tes of conditions the n exis ting, and s ummed up th e changes in mankind. He d eclared th a t five plagu es w er e affli c ting h umanity, n a m ely : 1 . The unprecedented c hall en ge t o authority. 2. An equally unpreced ented h a tred be.nveen man and man. 3. Abnormal av er sion to work. 4. T he ex cessi ve thirs t fo r pleasure as th e great aim of life. 5. Gross materialis m which denies th e r eality of spirituality in human life . Since th e day that th e great Pontiff made his utte rance, more than a decade ago, th e tru U1 of this analys is bas become more apparent. W e h ear e very day of the " challe nge to authority" ; eve n of th a t a uthority whi ch h elps u s and prot ec ts socie t y . Altogethe r too of t e n w e h a ve those unhappy e vid ences of th e feeling of intole_r:ance of man aagainst man. Education is successfully teaching th a t the human race are all "brothe rs unde r the skin"; members of the diffe r ent religions beliefs and cr eeds h a ve come to r ealize that they ar e serving the same God and a common cause, with ideals and obj ec tives which are simi lar indeed; and that we are all the children of the same almig hty Fathe r. Yes, my friends , religious intolerance is rapidly vanishing, especially in Am e ri ca, and let us send up our thanks to H eaven for that. No one can protest justly against thos e clive rsions and entertain men ts that bring pleasure, so long as they are not carried to such an extrem e a.c:; to overshadow th e rea l r espons ibilities of life. Tho last fear suggested in that portion of th e encyclical, f rom which I have quoted, is wo r thy of our great concern. Any people, that loses its se nse ot the reality of spiri t uality in human life, because of an excessive devoti on to g ro ss materia lism, is t ending toward disaster. "As a man think e th in his heart. so is b e"- Let us not, in ou r great desire for perfe c tion in letters and science, lose s ight of the importance of moral culture and ethical education and an appreciation of s piritual values. To pre vent this latter clamity, reli g ious org anizations and re hgiOU::i leaders and educators are ca ll ed to th e colors. In some nations , communis m hB..::I r ea red its terrori zing h ead, and with unh a ppy r esul ts.

This neve r will be th e r eac tion of Ame rica, than k s to th e cou r age and service of t he church es of our co untry. To ward off s uch danger s as co m munism we rely on ins titution s which, li k e S t. Viat or' s, ha ve dedica ted themselves to th e task . The appointmen t of new executives to the presidencies of our leading universities and colleges a lways attracts great in t e rest. Io Illinois our attention WM di r ec ted to the announcement at the commen cement exe rcises held here las t June, corning from the very Reverend Superior Gene r al of the Viato r!an, that Reverend Edward V. Cardinal wa.~ to be elevated to the presidency of SL Vlator College for a term of three years. This ce remony installs him in his new office. A little whlle ago, Harvard, the mothe r of American college.Y, selected a chemist to clirect he r affairs through this turbulent period o! eco-

nomic s tress ; Prince ton followed soon afterward with th e choice of a political s cientist ; and at about the same time, Loyola named an his torian; and then the Univ e rsity of illinois chos e an eng ineer. In each of these instances the new president cam e from the fa culties of those institutions and was intima t e ly familiar witll the ai ms and purposes of them. St. Vi a t or inde nti.fies itself with the tren d of the tim es in the selection of its eminent professor of history, to f ill its m os t important office.

Fortunate in acquiring one wh o meausures up to t he exac ting s tandards demands of those who g uide your destinies, St. Vi a tor may we ll congratulate itse lf upon th e choi ce of its n ew president.

Dr. Cardinal wi ll safeg uard and ellscharge with distin c tion the high responsibiJjty whi ch th e presidency of St. Viator College imposes upon him. At both th e Ca tholi c Univers it y of America and the Unive rsity of lllinois, your new president came in frequent contact with some of the finest minds in the fie ld of Ameri can hjstorical schola rshjp; a. t raining whi c h was greatly enhanced by the y ear wh ic h he s pent in research in European arc hives. Hi s preparation for both the Master· ~ and th.e Doctor's d egrees has given to him a keen ins ight into t he creative values of produc tive scholarship.
