In the 80's: Will It Be World Peace or World War?


My subject today is a serious one. It is particularly serious to men and women in college. We must face up to events today, which are happening very rapidly. It is a truism, that if we wish to understand where we are today, we must look back and see where we have been. There is engraved in stone at the National Archives in Washington, the words, "The Past Is Prologue." So in my allotted time, I believe we should first go back and see where we have been, then we must evaluate where we are today. Then, I would like to talk briefly about a program for the future.
