THE NEWS, Frederick, Maryland Moidajr. June I, 1171 PageB-7 Saint Joseph College Graduates 136 Women EBOOTSBURG - Dr. Earl J. .1CcGratta, director at the Higher Education Center at Temple Uni- verstty, was awarded the honorary degree of doctor of letters at the 161st commencement of St. Joseph College on Sunday, May 24. More than 1,000 parents and guest* attended the exercises held outdoors for the first time in memory oh the chapel lawn. Baccalaureate degrees were awarded to 136 young women representing 16 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. Three were from the Frederick area, Patrica A. Klinger, Frederick; Mary P. Header, Taneytown; Diane M. Case, Westminster. In the citation to Dr. McGrath, Sister Margaret Dougherty, president of St. Joseph's, noted, "In an era when information is doubling at fantastic rates, the concept of the liberally educated man seems an anachronism, if not an impossibility. Yet, Dr. McGrath with his broad education and diverse accomplishments stands as evidence that not only is all knowledge his province, but his knowledge can penetrate all provinces." During the past year, Dr. McGrath has guided the college's curriculum revision study headed by Dr. Richard Meeth, a former associate. In his address to thegraduates, Dr. McGrath remarked, "It is precisely in the liberal arts colleges like St. Joseph where we may hope to see a revitalization and preservation of the intellectual activities and the academic customs required to produce the reflective, generally informed and socially concerned citizen society so badly needs. The higher education establishment must do several things to achieve these goals. Colleges and universities ought to be inculcate the habits of democratic political action, not merely intellectual discussions of political theory, but the ways in which a free society really works and the means which the individual can use to make his opinions count In the determination of social policy, according to Dr. McGrath. He said, "Anyone who spends some years in-the government and observes the ebb and flow of political influence in the Congress realizes that the majority of our people do not know how powerful they could be." Opening the exercises, Anne Marie Higgins of West Chester, Pa., extended the graduates' greeting. Miss Higgins observed, "Our task is to make the world relevant to ourselves. No easy task for the new born idealist, to be steadfast, active, and demanding of right action.** Quoting T. S. Eliot, Miss Higgins noted, "Richt action is freedom." Among the platform guests were Sister Eleanor McNabb, provincial superior and chairman of the college's board of trustees, The Very Rev. Charles O'Connor, C. M., trustee, two former presidents of the college: Sister Hilda Gleason and Sister Rosemary Pfaff. An informal reception for guests of the graduates followed the exercises. The two-day program of fractional graduation ceremonies opened Saturday, May 23, with the baccalaureate mass at the Provincial House chapel. The concelebrated mass was offered by priest relative of the graduates. The Rev. Daniel C. Nusbaum delivered the homily. Later that evening the graduates' traditional Soiree Mariale was held before the outdoor statue of the virgin Mary at the college's entrance circle. During the colorful candlelight ceremony, each graduate placed a full bloom rose at the shrine, symbolizing her growth from her freshman year when she was presented with a rosebud by an upperclassman. The day's events closed with an informal dance for the graduates' parents and guests in the Student Center.
