SLIGHT Knowledge Will Not Enable Young Men To Assume Management Management Of Life's Affairs Says V. P. Marshall. Orono, Me., June 10.-—Vice President President Marshall addressed a class of 120 members at the commencement exercises exercises of the University of Maine today today and in turn received the honorary degree of Ooctor of Laws. The vice president dwelt upon the need of education for the young man taking up the business of life, "Slight knowledge will not enable the young man to assume the management management of life's affairs.'' he said. "In the Irrepressible conflict between labor and capital, he cannot assume that either property or labor Is everything without tending to establish a peon class In America or an oligarchy of wealth. Complete knowledge may convince him that it will ba better for the republic to bo controlled by neither of these classes. "in 1860 we had a republic where labor was satisfied, where respect for religion and reverence for law and order order and a sincere attachment to the constitution were strong. In that year the proportion of the annual wealth reatod In the country by the joint efforts efforts of labor and capital was one- fourth to labor and tnree-fourths to capital. fcMxty years later the proportion proportion had changed to less than one- fifth to labor and more than four- fifths to capital. This disproportion, to my mind, lias much to do with our present discontent. "Usurious Interest is no more, hut usurious profit has taken its place." he oontinued, and followed It with the declaration that the young man In assuming leadership must create a public opinion and develop a moral sentiment against usurious profit as WORK BEGINS ON YMCA MONDAY The work of remodeling the Maddln buihUn* at ktaib and Court streets Into a modern Y.
