Then came a resurgence of scientific investigation, and, at some schools, -human* concerns became secondary. The technological resolution came so swiftly that man and ideas about him were left alone on the bookshelf. In more recent decades, of course, we have begun to suspect that the new technology is not -necessarily reverent toward humanity or that it is concerned, one way or the other, with 'human survival. Now, across the nation, in many colleges and universities, there is growing recognition of the need to return to an emphasis on the hiimanities-perfaaps even to consideration of these fundamental truths which our nation's fathers called self-evident Altogether, a very healthy climate exists today for the cultivation of students who will become 'triple-threat men: scholars, leaders, and patriots. An electronic computer might be programmed to imitate one or even two of these. But only a liberally-educated man 'can be scholar, leader, and pat- not combined. Therefore, when diplomas are conferred by such institutions as this, it is a day when hope for our nation may properly be tripled A commencement, in our age, must be more than a beginning for those who are graduated. It must be-in a sense-a new beginning for human civilization. An older generation is passing on to you what has'proved to be its feeble control of destiny. An older generation, born in an age free of atomic menace, passes on to you. by default, the task of meeting this threat. The older generation's faith in you is great. But, to do wbat must be done, your faith in yourselves must be greater still. In his Nobel Prize address, the late Wffl- iam Faulkner presented-the young writer with a message of faith a message which, I mink, Ateserves the consideration of every graduating scholar. Faulkner's words, in part, were these: "Our tragedy today is a general and universal physical fear . . . There are no longer problems of the spirit. There is only the question: When will I be blown up? Because of this, the young man or woman. . . has forgotten the problems of the human heart in conflict with itself. . . . "He must learn them again. He must teach himself that the basest of all things is to be afraid . . leaving no room in his workshop The Dickman Recreation Hall was built in 1955. The building was started with $20,000 insurance money received after the burning of the old physics building. Later the Ladies Professorship Association gave the University 525,000 fo pay off Jhe indebtedness of the building provided that it be named in memory of Dr. and Mrs. John W, Dickman. Mrs. Dickman had been president of the L.P.A. for over 40 years. The Rec Hall contains two bowlfng Janes, a student lounge and a snack bar with television facilities, a photographic dark room and student publications room. The building was extensively remodeled two years ago, and is now leased and operated by Mr. and Mrs. Otto Finger. Students may obtain short orders, sandwiches, coffee and soft drinks at the snack bar. ^STi,-»> -'& 'i'- j Student Specials Economy Paul Bunyan SPIRAL NOTEBOOKS ,T 79c Square Ring Notebook Nbt^ookDictiooary (IS^IN words) $1^9 Metal WASTE - BASKETS, Only Soap Dubes — Toothbrushes — etc. Each 39c IOWA1 for 'anything but the old verities and truths of the heart . . love and' honor and pity and pride and compassion and sacrifice . . . Until he does so, he labors under a curse. . . "Until he rdearns these things, • he will write as though be stood alone and watched the end of man. I decline to accept the end of man. . . I believe that man will not merely endure; he wfll prevail . . . He is- immortal . . . because he has a soul, a spirit capable of compassion and sacrifice and endurance. "The poet's, the writer's duty is to write about these things. It is his privilege to help endure by lifting his heart . . The poet's voice need not be the record of man, it can be one of the ... pillars to 'help him endure and prevail." In the light of these words by Faulkner, we may see more clearly what is most important at your commencement: that all who receive degrees today be already committed to a humane intellectual life; that you be already committed to preserve the essentials of American and all civilized human existence. In the words of the president of my university, these essentials are "government with wisdom, the perpetual maintenance of free institutions, research for a better life, and life in peace with all our fellow men". This, really, is what your commencement is about. All this responsibility is your charge, and I am convinced you are equal to it STRENGTHEN AMERICA'S PEACE POWER? -U.S. SAVINGS ONDS Congratulations To Upper Iowa University On Its Progress The Past Few Years . . .
