Doctor McVey then introduced Doctor Bush, of the Presbyterian church, who in a few remarks paid tribute to Price McLean, in which he said his life was a house with two rooms and our comrade had only passed to the other room. He impressed upon all the need of a larger faith in a larger and fuller life. Professor Enoch Grehan, representing the Athletic Council and faculty staff, made impressive remarks reminding the student body that McLean died in service for the University and in no better way can our recollection of his worthiness be proved than to carry on his burden where he left fraud to do as well as he did.
