Producer Enthralls Crowd With Masterful Graduation Address Presents '57 Report (Continued from Page One) ped the blue-white glisten of a fine diamond, or the earthy beat of rock and roll, or even worshipped themselves above the worship of God? '"'These and anything else that represents values to us can be false gods," he said. "And so It is with all the Commandments. Graduates of BYU have a special advantage in their firm religious training, said Mr. DeMdlle, himself an Episcopalian. He lauded Dr. Ernest Wilkinson and his predecessors for development of BYU, "keystone of your church's magnificient educational system; drew dose analogy tween Brigbam Young and Moses as leaders of God-controlled people, and paid tribute to President McKay as "literally a latter-day saint." ' President's Report Dr. Wilkinson, one of four to be awarded honorary doctorates, thanked "this fine student body for prayers and fasting in my behalf during my illness," and said he had again "assumed full responsibility" in directing school affairs. Dr. Wilkinson told the 1002 graduates receiving bachelor and 47 receiving masters degrees: "You constitute by far the largest graduate class ever to be graduated from this institution. Together with those who will graduate in August, around 1400 will be graduated this year." Almost half of the graduates already have jobs. Another 18.8 per cent plan graduate study and 7.7 per cent are entering the armed forces, said the BYU president. Almost five per cent of the women graduates are married, or planning marriage, and eleven 1957 graduates expect to be called on missions. • Of the remaining 17.5 per cent of this year's graduates, many are stffl trying to decide which offer of several jobs to accept. ' . ' Highest Paid Jobs Highest .paying jobs have been offered to graduates in engineering and physical* sciences and the Graduate College. Salaries offered the former average $5,900 wift range of from $4,800 to $7,200. Graduate College jobs have range of from $3,720 to $9,832, with average of $5500; College of Commerce graduates, salary range of $3,600 to. $5,400; biology and agricultural sciences, $3,720 to $5,040; College of Humanities graduates, $3,700 to $5,000, and nursing, $2,700 to $4,000. :Dr. Wilkinson praised nursing graduates who have, accepted jobs si lower salaries—to continue their training. The BYU president singled out for comment salaries to graduates in education of $3,000 to $6,000 on nine-months basis, which if "they obtain equally remunerative summer employment, would average ' $5,100. Favors Merit Pay 'Analyzing the issue of teacher salaries at some length, Dr. Wil- Mnson said he favored merit pay. ""A poor teacher is worth nothing, a really superior teacher can't be paid enough . . . Any other view is contrary to the teaching's of the Master in his parable of the talents. In my judgement, any teacher who opposes merit pay is doing a disservice to his own profession and the cause of education," said Dr. Wilkinson. In his final charge to graduates, Dr. Wilkinson urged, "Whatever you do, please do it well. As Michaelangelo said, trifles mak° perfection—but perfection is no trifle. . . "The truth is that if .you 'have the right attitude, you will get more happiness, more genuine satisfaction out of your work, ou* of doing something well than you can derive from a lifetime of vacations and other attempted pursuits of happiness."
