1 honorary doctor of humane letters presented to Alfred Hitchcock, who in his commencement address advises students to be grateful to their professors: “Do not underestimate what they may have given you, what lights they may have kindled.

8 new bowling alleys added to the Benson Center.

11 hours, 47 minutes for Tom Flores ’66 to complete a 50-mile hike, making him the fastest Bronco of half a dozen to accomplish the feat in under 20 hours.

$20 fine levied against students who are absent from Jan. 1–2 room checks and miss their Jan. 3 classes.

6,500 handbills dropped from two rented aircraft piloted by Bronco students over the St. Mary’s College campus, in the run-up to the annual basketball game.
