After traciTig the history of the centuries, Dr. Davidson said the present centtiry is significant because of the personalities in It, and the century's success twill have depended upon what those personalities have brought out. Dr.,Davidson said he would rather live in the twentieth than any other century; rather than that of Christ, because he sees now greater things than men qf Christ's time saw, ratn or than the fifth when the men of Christ established a new social order; rather than the ninth, when Charlemague was crowned; rather than the sixteenth, the time of tho Renaissance; rather than the nine teenth, because, while the nineteenth century reaps the benefit of that progress. "But while I would rather live In this century than any other," D/ Davidson said, "I am not unmlndfu: of the fact that our century presents more problems than any other In history. There is more pain, more sorrow, more famine, more wickedness In the world today than at any time for 1000 years. You graduates, not withstanding the greatness of our century, should not, cannot, look for ward to a life ot service. / "The (challenge of the twentieth century, then, Is to give the best tha is"In you, to meet the needs of your time. To do this you must come with certain qualifications, and they 'are four in number. "You must have the power of vis Ion; you must not be visionary, bu you must get and £.boia vision—see the best that ybu-Wy w be a«a*'ido"in life.
