ADDRESS OF WELCOME.

BY CHARLES S. HOWE,
President of Case School of Applied Science.

[ocr errors]

I see that I am on the program for an address of welcome; that is a mistake-it should have been a word of welcome.

In behalf of the authorities of Case School of Applied Science, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the city of Cleveland and to this institution. We think the city of Cleveland is a very good place to hold conventions. Its climate is usually pleasant. It never rains when we have conventions, and on this account it is pleasant for people to come here. Cleveland is a city of homes. We have very few great blocks such as you find in eastern cities, but almost every house stands back from the street, surrounded by shrubbery and shade trees. This is called the Forest City on account of the beautiful trees which line the streets and are found on the lawns in front of our residences. Cleveland is also a manufacturing city and the manufacturers will welcome you to their establishments and give you every opportunity to see what is going on.

So, although I have no official authority to do so, I know I may, in behalf of our citizens, welcome you to the city of Cleveland. I surely can welcome you to the Case School of Applied Science. All that we have, recitation halls, libraries, laboratories, is at your command and I trust you will make yourselves at home. Everything we can do to make this meeting pleasant and profitable for you will be done, and so again I bid you welcome.

THE RELATION OF PHILOSOPHY TO SCIENCE.

BY BASSETT JONES, JR.,

Consulting Engineer.

In a paper read before this society at the fourteenth annual meeting in Ithaca, I took for my text, a quotation from Rousseau's “Emile"-"The art of living is the trade we are to teach."-I therein attempted to show that no system of education, technical or otherwise, can hope to claim success for itself unless it pays due attention to the subject of right livingunless it can give evidence that the life purpose instilled into the mind of the scholar is adapted to his individual needs, and that his mind is so trained that he grasps the meaning of the world with sufficient clearness to enable him to set before himself a model worthy of imitation.

The discussion of this thesis led us directly into the field of philosophy, and we found that the very act of attempting to appreciate the meaning of the world, the individual, and their relations was philosophy's problem. “The Benefit of Philosophy to the Engineering Student”-indeed, the benefit of philosophy to every thinking individual, is that, by a study of just these philosophical problems, he is enabled to so gauge the purpose and meaning of the world that he can distinguish his own place within it and so work out his own salvation, and self-development.

In a philosophical mood, Ibsen once wrote to a friend_“So to conduct one's life as to realize one's
