The war has heightened our sympathies, we are told, but it does seem sometimes as if it had dulled our sensibilities.  Perhaps it is inevitable: so many of those we loved have gone the dark road that there are no tears left for the young and the brave who are still laying down their lives "over there."  Yet every once in a while there comes a loss that strikes us even in our coma, and such to me was the death in action of F. S. Albright of Calgary, the other day.   Probably not many of our students knew him; he was not a graduate of ours, and his chief tie to us was his lectureship in Law.  And yet he was drawn to us by warm affection, by the sympathy he entertained for the young institution for whose future he cherished the highest hopes.   I saw him last in February [1917] just before he left with a draft company of his battalion, bright and cheery, and just as convinced as ever that he had chosen the better part which could not ever be taken from him.  I am honored in being permitted to lay this tribute upon the altar of his memory; I desire also on behalf of this University into the making of which his life has gone, to offer to his young wife our respectful sympathy.
