Senator Mansfield addresses the changing role of the United States in the world since the 1930's when he was a student and faculty member of Montana State University and the role the United States must maintain in the years to come to defend freedom against totalitarianism. He then charges the graduating students to prepare themselves for their place in the United State's future.
