Last year on Charter Day the striking statue of General Webb was unveiled- this year on the same occasion there was dedicated in the Great Hall a bronze tablet to commemorate Arthur Vincent Hegney, the first student of the institution to fall on the field of battle.

This tablet, which may be regarded as a precursor of more elaborate future testimonials in honor of our soldiers in the present world conflict, is inserted in the wall of the Great Hall to the left of the platform and forms a companion piece to the one on the corresponding wall to the right, which bears the name of Edward M.

Shepard. Thus are brought into intimate relationship a distinguished leader in the days of peace, who gave a lifetime to civic duties, and a humble private soldier in days of war, who gave up his youthful life in the service of his country.The ceremony, which took place at noon on May 7, was begun with an academic procession preceded by the flags.

President Mezes presided and Professor Baldwin assisted at the organ. The hall was well filled with students and guests. The addresses, so far as obtainable, follow:Rev. Dr. Charles P. Fagnani, President Of The Alumni AssociationWe are assembled here today for two reasons: First to celebrate the Charter Day of the College of the City of New York, and, secondly, because two months ago today a young man died a violent death.What mean those four vacancies in the glorious company of University banners hanging above our heads?

The recent removal of their former occupants is explained by the appearance of that other banner with its many stars which holds the place of honor in the vaulted ceiling of this Great Hall. Our abhorrence of all things German has caused the taking down of the banners of the four German universities as unfit for association with their former sisters of France and England and Scotland and Italy.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
