Dr. Henderson, in his address
spoke on "Brief Reminiscences of
a Long Life." He said that he
belonged to the Dialectic Senate
while attending the University.
"Oratory is needed more now
than ever before in history," he
said. "Now through the vast
magnifications of communications,
a person may speak to audiences
numbering into the millions." He
pointed out that the need for
orators is the same today as in
early Greek and Roman history.
Orators are needed in the law
courts, to lead the people in de
fense and preservation of the
world and to lead causes, he said.
Dr. Henderson stated that '. he
believes the University to be one
of the "greatest schools in the
world.". He emphasized that the
University teaches - equality in
all things from the time one en
ters school until he leaves. He
said that there is no other school
in the country that is superior in
this phase. ;
In the field of mathematics he
studied at the University of Chi
cago, Cambridge, the University
of Berlin, Sarbonne and the In
stitute de France. He told how
he became interested in Einstein's
relativity in 1916 and went on in
two years to master it. ; He be
came an exponent of the theory
and published papers on it and
made many lectures about it. He
said he made three new contribu
tions to the theory.
