Brown Alumni Monthly, Vol. 43 free pdf Excerpt from Brown Alumni Monthly, Vol. 43: Commencement on a War Basis "I began to wonder," he said, "if after all we were not at war with Britain and the President of the United States." He attacked those who sulked behind the protecting armor of the Bill of Rights. But on traveling throughout the country Reynolds found the people of our country were mad, "and an angry democracy has never been beaten. This is a people's war, and the people will either win or lose it. It't too important a war to be fought by generals... We should thank the Japs for reminding us, too, that it is our war. We have a long way to go because we are amateurs in this business of murder. But out of the burning fires of war will emerge a new world in which free men can live without fear. It is for this we fight." Stalin, he said, was the greatest realist of our times, and we should take council with him in working out that peace. President Wriston told the alumni in a trenchant statement his conception of the postulates of peace after the war: world solidarity and the supremacy of spiritual realities. "As the nationhood of the United States could not endure half slave and half free," he said, "so the peace of the world cannot survive a division in the ideology between the state as master and the state as servant ... between the individual as slave, and man as a son of God." Anglo-American domination might start policing, he said, but it would deteriorate into tyranny. Policing must be recognized as "a transient and essentially undesirable device, for the world is not waiting to exchange masters, but to achieve freedom." "Liberty is more precious than order, which must ever be the servant, never the master of freedom. The central political problem of the world is continuously to expand the areas of self-government, as the central economic problem is to expand wealth... But the world at war reveals that the standard of living is basically spiritual, not economic. War offers its stark and final proof that man does not live by bread alone. The world at peace must show that these lessons have been learned. The structure of the post-war world cannot be founded on power. It must be founded upon moral intangibles which control power." Before announcing gifts to the University in excess of three-quarters of a million dollars, Vice-President James P. Adams spoke his appreciation and the meaning of the gifts in terms of faith. "It is faith in the readiness of the University to face its problems and solve them, so far as possible, by its own foresight and planning- faith in the essential contribution which the University is making and can make to the war effort which so deeply concerns our people- and faith in the significant role which education - and, for our part, this University - must play in the larger future in a new world which we must help to build and sustain. We shall try to match this faith with wisdom and courage. "It so happens that I have seen 24 classes at Brown - three of them still in their undergraduate years. These classes represent almost the entire group of Brown men who - because of their present age - will be called into the service of their country. And so I speak not only with official sanction but in a more intimate way, perhaps, for all those who were their teachers and friends here on this campus. I feel that nothing which I could say on this occasion can have more meaning than what I shall now say in conclusion to those who are or will be serving in the armed forces of the Nation. And even though the message which I send will not reach many of them today and will not reach some of them at all, I speak it here now in your names and in the names of all who knew them at Brown: "We salute you with reverence and with pride wherever you may be about the circle of the globe. We cherish for you an abiding faith in the justice of our country's cause. We pray that you may be sust
