S . Mail comes through to Lincoln—and how !

Introspection [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 7 October 1939
Introspection To do their work ‘ in this day and age and to fulfil ] their responsibility to our democratic way of life our universities must be left free , as the pioneer was free , to explore new regions and report upon wha-t they find . Can the university lose step with life and accept the command , Mark time , just to insure its own security and perpetuatio n ? The pioneers of our states did -not accept such doctrine . They -asked the universities to seek truth where it might be found , i n t he fields , the forests , the laboratories and libraries and in the hearts and minds of men .

There are dark shadows over the world ; there are univers ’ities that are hollow shells , with freedom of inquiry and freed...
