2 FOREWORD PRINTBD AT PRINCETON UNIVERSITY PRESS TRUE EDUCATION requires trammg and development not only in the intellectual but in the moral and spiritual sphere. And it is just here that the crucial weakness of our civilization is to be found. We do not lack for material power, or for mental acumen, but rather for moral stamina and spiritual vitality. Because our universities succeed nobly in teaching men how to think, we must not be blind to their inability to cope with deeper needs of the personality. In the realm of ethics and religion proper courses of instruction can help, but from the very nature of the case what the University can do is inadequate just because of the world of difference between knowledge about and knowledge of Christian faith and life. In other words, there can be no real progress in this matter until the work of the University is accompanied and supplemented by the work of the Church. At Princeton about eight hundred undergraduates, one-third of the student body, a larger percentage than that of any other group, belong to the Episcopal Church. A number of others also look to it primarily for their spiritual sustenance and encouragement. This booklet has the special purpose of informing parents, graduates, and friends of Princeton who are members of the Episcopal Church as to the vast respon-

Ninety years later she supplied impartially many leaders for the North and South in the desperate and critical years of the War between the States. Again the student felt the effect of gathering storm outside the quiet setting of Princeton's campus. Half a century later came the World War and a Princeton man presided over the Nation's destiny. The days of the World War cast a deeper and more ominous shadow over academic life than any other period in the two centuries of Princeton's existence. We are only beginning to realize this today. But this history of the University and the record of the part her sons have played in our political, professional and economic life has been told and retold. It is a story well worth reading again in the light of the spiritual forces which permeated their leadership. It need not be repeated here. Today, however, all sober-minded citizens look aghast at a new crisis in our national life. It seems more sinister, more alarming, than all other times of stress. This may be because it is so close to us and affects so intimately the daily lives of all classes and conditions of men. The American Revolution, the War between the States and the World War stirred our men with patriotic fervor and a courageous spirit in the face of grave
