He also said that graduates
can influence young people to
attend Nebraska, because young
people will look to the new
graduate for help. "Many peo
ple go to college simply because
their friends mention it to
them," the Chancellor said.
Chancellor Gustavson recom
mended that graduates keep
alive their interest in the Uni
versity's state and national re
lations. He recalled the interest
shown by students last year
when the state legislature was
considering the appropriation of
funds to the University.
The Chancellor, who was in
troduced to the convocation as
a senior who came to the Uni
versity four years ago as a con
fused freshmen, said "It is a
pleasure to know the student
body at Nebraska. You are the
heart of the University."
He told of a conversation with
Ralph Bunche in which Bunche
had expressed his amazement at
the interest and information Ne
braska students have in world
affairs. "I am proud of the stu

Bill Day, president of the Ne

addressed the seniors. He gave a

I he class of 19oU is signifi
cant in that it comes at the turn
of the century," he said. "You
seniors should consider your
selves ambasadors of the Uni
versity, because people in your
communities will judge Ne
braska by your actions."
Day said that members never
graduate from the Alumni as

that the Class of '50 will stimu
