Spare a Few Minutes for Something
I Feel Is Important?
By Anson S. Blake
UNIVERSITY YOUNG MEN'S
many years that I have observed the operations of the
University Y, there have been spectacular changes in its
surroundings, both in the University itself, in the
community where it is located, as well as in the State. Like
all human institutions it has fluctuations in its
effectiveness but there has never been a time when it
stagnated or was unwilling to cope with the changing
conditions that it met. It initiated numerous activities on
behalf of the students which were subsequently taken over by
the University or by Stephens Union. As these were laid
aside new fields of usefulness were sought and exploited.
I deem it a
great privilege to have had continuing contact through the
decades with the stream of young life that constantly flows
to Berkeley from the State. I take pride in following the
careers of this individuals whom I have known personally.
From both mass observation and individual sampling, I am
convinced that the youth of California is essentially sound,
definitely forward looking and worthy of our support in
efforts at self-expression.
