Winter's artful frosts shall wreathe it, Autumn's mournful winds shall breathe it, Radiant Spring in flowers shall trace it, Death and Time can ne'er efface it. Oh! This name can never be Lost from human memor}7! Seasons coming, seasons going, Ocean tides forever flowing, Ne'er shall witness thy deriding, Splendid name, thou art abiding. —F. M. McPetric. ------------------- IN MEMORIAM. THE VOLANTE comes this time in mourning for the death of Edward Olson, Ph. D , president of the University of Dakota, who was killed at the fire of the TRIBUNE building at Minneapolis, November 30. Words cannot express the grief which this man's death has caused. Eloquence and rhetoric fall far short of the true expression of the hearts that mourn. Yet it is meet that we pause to say a word over the grave of our departed president. We have lost in this one man a rare scholar, a broad-minded educator, a devoted Christian, a man of executive ability and a man whose large heart was filled with humane sympathy and loving charity. We have lost the best friend of this University. Students have lost the one man of all who lived simply for them. Professors have lost an elder teacher and a wise leader. The world has lost a truly great man. Let us pause. Consider this death in all its phases. See how well the man had lived— how noble was his death; remember his standard of manhood; mark well his only ambition, and then let us weep over the fallen and try to be like him. Emulate his example. Love his God. Keep the golden rule of his life. Live to elevate the world and to make men better. Thus will we make this University what he wanted it to be. Thus will we be what he fondly hoped for us. Thus will we be of influence, of power and of inspiration in the world so beclouded by sin and humane degradation.
