PAGE S By JOHN T AEHL Of The Slate The graduation of James Madison Memorial High Schools 442 seniors Thursday afternoon turned into a debate of sorts over the meaning of life the goals of life and the question of whether or not the graduates were dehumanized sheep Even the setting for com mencement the immaculate and awesomely large Dane County Coliseum being used for the first time for Madison high school graduations came under some biting comments from a graduating senior one of the four speakers The building easily housed the greenrobedgraduates and more than 2000 relatives and friends with plenty of room left over The four tried to help the graduates resolve even in the last moments before the diplo mas were presented the rea sons for education and the rea sons for the graduates contin ued existence is not to the goals of life that we should turn our atten tion we must rather turn our selves tothe living of life said Michael Brockmeyer a teacher at the school chosen by the sen ior class to speak He warned them that life is an unending search for the proper concerns and commitments that life is an immense jour ney to establish your human ity They were told by Ann Nieder tneier a graduating senior tha AntiDoyle Move Loses This Time By JOHN KEEFE Of The State Jeurnal Staff A proposal aimed at rebukin Federal District Judge Jame Doyle of Madison was defeate Thursday by the State Assem bly but a move to reconside the measure kept it alive The lawmakers on a 5344 vol rejected the resolution lha called for a constitutional con vention lo propose an amenc ment that would make federa judges elective instead of ap pointive for life RECENT decisions of Doyl Involving what many legislator consider permissive handling campus disruption cases hav piqued the lawmakers Assem bly Speaker Harold Froehlic chief author the measure has said that fe eral judges should not be im mune from public opinion Assemblyman Norman Ander eon DMadison argued tha federal judges ought to remai as is isolated from runnin for office If there is ever a plac where an issue ought to be de cided on its merits it ought 1 be in the courtroom especial when fundamental civil righ are involved Anderson said jour now commencement addresses by startling the crowd with accusa iohs that the impersonal quali ies of occasions such as this are provoking much more dissent and alienation among the ranks of graduating students He attacked the scheduled o u t i n e dehumanized struc ures of society for imper sonal processing and and said the sterilized aircon ditioned Dane County Coliseum reflects this dehumanization From Mark Parish another teacher chosen by the seniors to speak to them the graduates heard We do not know if this is the generation which will finally wage a peaceful rebellion de signed to insure the survival of mankindor whether they wil occupy themselves with staying actions or rear guard defenses of a particular state regional or national way of life We do not know if the young people here today and those o next year and the year after truly represent a new awareness an awareness of mans rela tionship to man and mans rela tionship to nature or whether the sound and fury of the las few years still signifies nothing whether it is simply a tired re run of that old say sensitive rebel at 18 complacent con formist at 35 Parish said the seniors may lead the world to some solutions only by thinking and living in international rather than na tionalterms by making ethica judgments based upon rationa principles gleaned from th methodology and discoveries o ASSEMBLYMAN James Sen eenbrenner one of the eight Republicans who sided with 44 Democrats in kill ing the proposal later asked that the action be reconsidered He said he made the request which will not be taken up be fore late next week because he thought the issue was not ade quately aired before the vote THE ASSEMBLY gave final approval Thursday to a revision in the slate election laws that had been prompted by the dis puted contest earlier between Assemblyman Joseph Looby DEau Claice and Wilmer Wa ters the Republican incumbent beaten last November The measure sent to the Sen lite on a 6039 vote would allow either house to order an investi gation of a contested election and to take testimony Waters who sought to reverse the slim onevote margin he lost to Looby failed to comply with current law requiring the filing of sworn statements by a dead line Without that testimony the Assembly Elections Committee decided it could not overturn the election of Looby A BILL extending to27000 municipal employes unemploy ment compensation benefits was given preliminary approval 71 28 by the Assembly Thursday and sent to the Joint Finance Committee The bill which would affect 117 of the states counties cities villages with more than 500 ipulation was recommended an advisory council made up both labor and management representatives Currently unemployment compensation

a warning Life is routine sometimes boring We must find life in his routine We must find suc cess failure anger happiness hurt joy and excitement in this routine She also prodded them How many of us are living only for next fall college or a new job How many of us have wgotton to live Life comes between the weekends during hjgh school We are herded like sheep into technical competencies within this overcapitalistic overindustralized and overmil itarized society The worst part of it all we have accepted this dehumaniza tion Yet in conclusion he noted We cannot wander around like blind sheep

the urging be fore the grayrobed class and more than 3000 relatives and friends at the Dane County Memorial Coliseum This 47th annual Commence ment by East was the first held outside the school IN CLEAR strong measured words Thomas said Although the problems that we face are not of our making we canno change the fact that they exist But as President Johnson stated in the appropriate word we have chosen for our clas motto Yesterday is not ours t recover but tomorrow is ours tx wfti or to lose COMPARING the problems o society to those which are en countered in sports he contin ued Similarly to conquer the problems that confront us we will have to know the problem its causes its weaknesses its strengths We will have to make the right decision and we will have to execute that decision with tact perseverance and cour age This is easier to say than to do but the job is ours THOMAS SAID the Vietnam War is the most immediate and absorbing problem bu also noted other issues by quot ng Sen Edmund Muskie D who said Today peo ple in the United States are angry and frustrated We are angry because too many of us are being disinher ted from the benefits and ad vantages of our affluence We are frustrated because of what we continue to do to our air our land our water and en vironment in general knowing we will reap a whirlwind of desolation We are angry because we still have an estimated 22 mil lion Americans living in pov erty despite 100 years of un precedented economic growth and expansion WE ARE frustrated because we managed to produce 85 mil lion new job opportunities ove the past five years but 84 mil lion Americans are still on wel fare Thomas said These condi tions of which Sen Muskie spoke have brought our countrj close to revolution He cited remarks by the lati Sen Robert Kennedy in calling for moral courage to stand for an idea or strike out against in justice The goal I would like lo see achieved is equality and peace for all T h o ma s

their diplo mas from West High School Thursday morning The ceremony was the first of four scheduled throughout the day at the Dane County Coli seum Delivering t h e invocation Rabbi Manfred Swarsensky of Beth El Temple said under Gods law there is room for only one aristocracy he aris tocracy of the mind There is room for only one nobility the nobility of the heart He told the graduates they must seek out the good in so ciety THE UNDISCIPLINED life is not worth living he said It is not enough to be angry young men reveling in criticism alone Michael Dana elected by the graduating seniors to be their Valedictorian delivered the class address Noting that it was just a year ago that Sen Robert F Kennedy was assassinated he told his classmates they would do well to emulate Mr Kennedy and shed the cloak of apathy We must make the choice io get involved deeply and person ally in our society with all its ills and shortcomings and make a serious commitment of aciton toward their end he said DANA NOTED that apathy ed to the downfall of the Roman Empire and that American apa hy toward the plight of the gro has resulted in destruc tion in Harlem Watts Detroit and other places As a student senator he re called the apathy of students to ward the workings of student government And he accused the administration of having fre quently displayed an apathetic attitude toward the legitimate nterests of the students Dana said young people and other maintain an awareness of the world and ts problems make a well considered judgment on specific ssues and take action to im plement the decision THIS ACTION does not imply violence or militancy such as is rampant on college cam puses today he said Vio ence is the tool of the ignorant and undisciplined mind that re fuses to respect the opinions of others In his mad rush to correct societys ills the violent activist only crpates new problems and fails to solve the issue which he originally confronted For a so ciety to provide for the freedom of the individual violence must be discarded as a vehicle for so cial improvement Joseph Fagan chairman of the State Commission on Indus try Labor and Human Rela tions and a 1942 West High alumnus told the seniors it is getting more and more difficult to be an individual We seem to be living in an era which takes a consensus ap proach to decisionmaking he said Mass demonstrations are a group thing that lets others decide for you WHAT IS BEING estab lished Im afraid are ghettoes of impoverished thinking in re action to ghetloes of impover shed living Fagan said Using the Commandoes and Enforcers of Milwaukee as ex amples of young people who are rying to work within society to change society and who have tough and intelligent leaders ic said Take a page from their ook I challenge you today to be as relevant as they are These groups have shown that virtue is not always conform ty he said The graduates are Carolyn Marie Ableman Elizabeth Agard Susan Elizabeth Aoee Jeanne Ann

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
