To reach excellence as individuals or
as a nation wc must assess our limita
tions realistically and concentrate on
what wc do best. James Leutze. pro

curriculum on peace, war and defense,

Waging war and using military power
arc not activities the United States has
excelled in. Leutze said as he delivered
the Frank Porter Graham Lecture on
Excellence after The Order of the
Golden Fleece Annual Tapping
The U.S. devotes too much time to
military solutions because they seem
"easy" and because we mistakenly
believe we are good at working with
military force, he said.
Our misplaced confidence in our
nation's military ability comes from the
claim that we have never lost a war.
Leutze said, but We haven't been as
good as we like to think" in our military
"Before praising ourselves for never
losing, we ought to take a close look
at the War of 1812," he said. We should
also consider the Civil War and the
performance of U.S. troops in World
War 11, which was "mediocre at best,"
Our attention to the military "dis
tracts us from what we do best," Leutze
Instead of diverting ourselves with
"vain displays of military muscle," we
should concentrate on areas where we
have the potential to be the best, he
said, like openness, generosity, freedom,
compromise and diversity.
The same principle applies to the
individual as well as the nation, Leutze

Churchill had a miserable childhood
and prepared to be a professional
soldier because he didn't seem able to
do anything else, Leutze said. But
Churchill took advantage of his ability
to write and his contacts in high places
and became known as a great speaker
despite a speech impediment, he said.
Eisenhower was a mediocre student
and "not destined to be a stellar athlete"
but he could "subordinate his ego to
the team goal," Leutze said. Eisenhower
realized he could not succeed as an
athlete, so he used his ability to hold
together a coalition and became

"They didn't concentrate on their

Eisenhower and Grant. They all had
faults but overcame them by working
in areas where they could excel, he said.
"They did not deal in illusion."

He said although the initiates could
choose to pursue excellence privately,
he hoped some of them would come
forward to lead this nation.
As a last note of advice to the initiates.
Leutze told them, "Please be humble
during your quest, especially if you
achieve your goals." Perhaps the only
thing in the world more rare than
excellence was humility, he said.
