114: SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE THURSDAY, MAY 18, 1978 Michelle Bush In Graduating Class Longwood College; Sen. Byrd Commencement Speaker Miss Michelle Lee Bush, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Linden J. Bush, of Charles Town, was among the 446 seniors of Longwood College in Farmville, Va., who made up the graduating class which held its commencement ceremonies Saturday morning, May 13. Virginia's Senator Harry F. Byrd, Jr., was the com- mencement speaker and in his remarks he urged the graduates to "look forward to the future" and its challenges. The three major challenges faced by this Country, Byrd stated, "are to find solutions to continuing high inflation, excessive government intervention and energy dependence." "Of these challenges, I believe inflation is our dominant problem," he said, adding that it is a problem with which all of the graduates must deal. He said that he welcomes President Carter's "concern" .... over the rising inflation rate, which is already running nine percent, but that "government statements are not matched by government action." Byrd pointed out that the government is now "going in the red" more than $1 billion each week. "Because of this," he stated, "I am sponsoring a constitutional amendment to require a balanced budget." Speaking against the in- creasing power of the federal government, Senator Byrd said that the nation "is too large, too diverse, to attempt to dictate local matters from Washington, D.C." Education, in particular, he said, should be locally con- trolled. In regard to the energy challenge, Byrd stated that he cannot support President Carter's energy plan because "it )laces too much reliance on conservation and lacks in- centives for increased domestic production." He urged the graduates to "become involved and work for the goals in which you believe," reminding them that even one vote can make a difference. Miss Bush received the bachelor of science degree in therapeutic recreation. She was graduated cum laude. This was the largest number of graduate degrees to he awarded at Longwood since the graduate program was authorized in 1954. Following the graduation ceremonies a brunch was held in the Blackwell Dining Hall for the graduates, their guests, parents and members of the college faculty.
