Over ITIOO graduate and undergraduate degrees were
awarded at the 74th annual commencement exercises
on Iune 7th.
ln a departure from tradition a member of the
graduating class, Frank Wargo, delivered the
Commencement address. He called today's college
student protesters "a distinct minority who do not
represent the feeling of 98 per cent of the students
across the country." "That 98 per cent," vvargo said,
the 'Other Voice' and somehow it must be heard
above the protesters."
SCSC President Hilton C. Buley, in conferring
degrees on the largest graduating class in the college's
history, praised the achievements of both students and
faculty. Addressing those gathered at the outdoor
exercise, Buley pointed up the critical role played by
colleges and universities in helping to shape the world
of tomorrow. "Our faculty," he said, "is willing to have
its success measured by the accomplishments of our
graduates. In scholarship, in activities and in service,
our students are building enviable reputations for
themselves and for Southern Connecticut State
In his address Wargo said, "At 6:30 every evening
when Americans sit down in front of their television
sets or pick up their newspapers to see and hear what
is going on in our country, they always seem to hear
about that two per cent, It is no wonder, then, why
the American public is being turned on by the
"The rest, the overwhelming majority," Wargo said,
"are rarely seen or heard. But they're there. They go into
industry, business or teaching, they enroll in graduate
school or join the Peace Corps or go into the service."
"These are the people who help keep our country
strong, these are the people who go unnoticed, but
who are always there. Ask the two per cent what they
want or where they are going and most of them won't
be able to give you an answer."
Wargo conceded change was both healthy and
necessary, but that it must be accomplished in a
non-violent manner because "violence begets
"Somehow," he concluded, "the voice of the 98
per cent must be heard above the protesters so that at
6:30 when Americans pick up their newspapers or turn
on their television sets and see our colleges and
universities in the hands of that small minority and
throw their hands in the air and ask what is wrong
with our younger generation, they will hear that
'Other Voice' saying: 'We are here, we are trying hard,
won't you please give us a chance?"
Two graduates were awarded bachelor of science
degrees summa cum laude fwith highest honorsl. They
were: Barbara Farrington of Milford, and Karen Spargo
