P A U L S M I T H ’ S C O L L E G E Non-Profit Org. U.S. Postage P A I D Permit No. 1 PAUL SMITHS, NEW YORK Ambassador Tubby Speaks Of “Meeting Challenges” Alumni Weekend Over Ninety Grads Return To P. S. C. Spirit was about the highest yet, and ideas the most numerous yet, at the Annual Alumni Weekend this year, starting with the cock­ tail party the night of the 29th, and running through the Annual meeting, the picnic on the point, and the dinner Saturday night, the 30th, and graduation, Sunday, the 31st. Many old friendships were re­ newed, and many new acquain­ tances were made. There were many new faces and it was really good to see them. Most of the new ideas, which are being considered for further action, were brought up at the highly successful annual Alumni meeting. There was a great deal of discussion of many issues, and the meeting ended by appoint­ ing a nominating committee to have nominations for new officers by dinner Saturday night. Those running for office were: President Herb Seaman ’60 Bob Gentry ’66 Vice President Richard Lewis ’63 Bob Meyer ’67 Sec.-Treas. Terry Healy ’63 Ruth Woodward ’51 The announcement was made at dinner Saturday night that the new officers of the Alumni Association were as follows: Herb ‘Stumpy’ Seaman, President Richard Lewis, Vice President Ruth W. Woodward, Sec.-Treas. We look forward to working with these new officers and extend our congratulations to them. Now is the time to “get the ball rolling”. With everyone behind them and we hope YOU are, things can’t help but be successful. We also express sincere grati­ tude to our former President, Ruth Anson Davis, to Mr. Frank Houck, former Vice President, and to Mr. Robert B. Thomas former Secret­ ary-Treasurer.

Tubby, now special as­ sistant to the Director of the For­ eign Service Institute of the De­ partment of State, addressed 288 graduates at Paul Smith’s 23rd Annual Commencement Sunday, May 31, 1970. The subject was “ On Meeting Our Challenges.” Mr. Tubby told the graduates that their generation was the first “nurtured by television with its tan­ talizing suggestions that success in life can come easily”, the first to grow up under “ the threat of atom­ ic incineration”, the first to be confronted with the consequences of the population explosion, and first to be endangered by pollution of the atmosphere and the earth’s waters. Recognizing the existence in some circles of what he called “an apocalyptic mood”, Mr. Tubby de- (Continued on page 2, col. 4) 288 Graduate From Paul Smith’s College A graduating class of 288 re­ ceived diplomas at Paul Smith’s College on Sunday, May 31, 1970.
