Today's graduates should join
the nation's war on illegal drugs,
baseball commissioner Peter V.
Ueberroth told degTee candidates
in his commencement address in
Kenan Stadium on May 10.
"Illegal drugs in this country are
the engine of crime," Ueberroth
told the more than 5,000 Univer
sity graduates who participated in
the ceremonies. "Insist that your
elected officials do something
about it now.
"Make a better world for your
younger brothers and sisters," he
Ueberroth told graduates to
look at their career opportunities
with an open mind. "Use (college)
degrees as an asset, not a liability,"
he said. "This country is no longer
keeping track of degrees and
restricting where you can go."
In order to move up the career
ladder, Ueberroth said, graduates
should find out how their work
performances will be evaluated by
their employers. "Don't ask too
quickly about (your) salary . . .
ask how they keep score," he
Ueberroth indicated that the
profit motive can become another
kind of opportunity for graduates
in the job market. "(Profit) is a
very nice word," he said. "It's the
engine of growth in this country,
it's the engine of opportunity, and
it also creates jobs.

Before Ueberroth's speech, class
officers Michele Killough and
David Venable gave separate
addresses to the graduates.
"Ladies and gentlemen, we have
made it," Killough said. "We're
graduating with a degree from one
of the most prestigious universities
in the country, and we're better
for the experience."
"The degree you receive today
will set you apart as a select group

Kessenich had quite a game in

on the afternoon. The freshman

At the start of the ceremony,
graduates celebrated their com
mencement in various ways as they
marched into Kenan Stadium.
They popped champagne corks,
tossed beach balls and Frisbees,
and carried banners. One group
left the procession to set up a
football scrimmage on the field;
another group took turns swinging
around the goal posts.
Two graduates carried a large
banner that said "Mom and Dad,
We Love You."

Those who received honorary
degrees during the ceremony were

the score. Midfielder Steve Huff
then struck at the 6:07 mark to
give UNC its first lead since 2-1.
Hopkins, however, refused to
surrender its 20-game winning
streak in home playoff games. The
Blue Jays' Brendan Kelly re-tied
the game at 10-10 with a screen
shot at the 4:19 mark, setting the
stage for Morrill's heroics.
