Is There Life After Commencement?
If you are looking for the adorable whimsy which has made
this column such a popular favorite among my wife'and my little
dog Spot, you will not find it today. For this is my last column of
the school year and therefore a leave-taking, an occapion of sweet
solemnity. I will not try to be funny in this final column. (I've been
told I often achieved this goal in earlier columns, but those were
only lucky accidents. Today it's on purpose.)
Further, because of the gravity of the occasion, there will be
no commercials today for my sponsor, the brewers of Miller High
Life Beer. In this decision the brewers of Miller High Life con-
curred readily-nay, enthusiastically!-an act of industrial states-
manship totally typical, you would say, if you knew the brewers
of Miller High Life as I know the brewers of Miller High Life;
I mean here are gentlemen gray at the temples and heavy with
honors who still rush to the brewery as eagerly every morning as
if they were youngsters only just beginning; I mean all they care
about in the world, the brewers of Miller High Life, is to put the
best of all possible beers inside the best of all possible cans and
bottles and then go, heads high, into the market place with their
wares, confident that the inborn ability to tell right from wrong,
good from bad, meritorious from shoddy, which is the proud herit-
age of every American, will result in a modest return to themselves,
the brewers of Miller High Life, for their long hours and dedicated
labors-not, it goes without saying, that money is of any conse-
quence to the brewers of Miller High Life; all these simple men
require is plain, nourishing food, plenty of Miller High Life, and
the knowledge that through their efforts the lives of beer drinkers
everywhere have become a little more relevant-an attitude which
I, for one, find heart-wrenching; indeed, so moved am I that I wish
to state right here and now-I declare it publicly and proudly-that
as long as there is breath in my body, I shall have only the highest
regard for the brewers of Miller High Life, no matter how my
lawsuit for back wages comes out.
(I am only having my little joke. Of course I'm not suing the
brewers of Miller High Life for back wages. They have always
paid me promptly and in full. True, they have not paid me in
money, but I'll bet you never met anyone who's got as many Miller
bottle caps as I do.)
But I digress. As I was saying, there will be no commercial
today for Miller High Life because of the solemnity of the occa-
sion. This is goodbye for many of you, especially those who were
unable to avoid graduating. To these unfortunates I say, be of
good cheer. It will accomplish nothing to slink home and assume
the fetal position. Remember, there are other good things in the
world besides going to college. I admit they don't spring to mind
at the moment, but there must be. And if not, here's an easy solu-
tion: just dye your hair, shave your beard, change your name, and
start over again at some other college.
And so in these last lambent moments, let me say to all of
you, my gentle readers, it has been a great pleasure writing this
column through the school year. Believe me, pleasure is not a com-
mon commodity in the life of a writer. There are an appalling
number of hazards in this game-a drought of ideas, for one;
catching your necktie in the roller of your typewriter, for another
-so when a writer is blessed, as I have been, with an audience as
alert and intelligent as you, he must take his hat in hand and his
necktie out of the typewriter and make a thankful bow. This
I now do.
Au revoir, gentle readers. Stay happy. Stay loose. And as you
travel down life's highway, remember these lines from Shake-
speare's immortal Pajama Game:
Up your beer enjoyment, fellow.
Raise your pleasure quotient, neighbor.
Switch to Miller, bright and mellow.
You'll enjoy its groovy fleighbor.

Now that the year is over and the brewery has survived, we
at Miller High Life would like to say that we have thoroughly
enjoyed bringing you this column, no matter how Mr. Shulman's
lawsuit comes out.

That's our hope," R o g e r s

vately to the U.N. delegates of
the Israeli and Arab countries
directly involved in the Middle
East settlement and is expected
to return shortly thereafter to
his regular post as Swedish am-
bassador in Moscow.
Rogers recently returned from
a week's tour of the Middle
East seeking an interim Egyp-
tian-Israeli agreement to re-
open the Suez Canal. He made
his statement after a briefing
with U.N. Secretary-G en era 1
U Thant and Jarring concern-
ing the trip.
A U.N. spokesman said t h a t
Thant's position has been that
the Rogers misison "is an Amer-
ican initiative, and that it is
not a U.N. matter directly." He
added, however, that an interim

mayoral no
ers go to the polls today in a
primary that has pitted former
Police Commissioner Frank Riz-
zo - a self styled "tough cop"
- against a Kennedy style con-
gressman and a black lawyer
in the race for the Democratic
mayoral nomination.
When Rizzo stepped down as
police commissioner and an-
nounced his candidacy for the
office in February, indications
were that he would probably
win. But observers now r a t e

Green, lawyer Harry Williams

they belong in jail," says Rizzo,
who has the backing of the
Democratic organization in the
nation's fourth largest city.
He was the hand-picked
choice of Mayor James Tate,
who cannot by law seek a third
successive term.
Green, a 32 year old congress-
man whose father once was poli-
tical boss of Philadelphia in the
style the younger Green now
condemns, has the backing of
Gov. Milton Shapp, a maverick
Democrat who bucked the or-
ganization in winning the state-
house last fall.
On the Republican side, That-
cher Longstreth, a former city
councilman and Chamber of
Commerce executive, has only
token opposition for the mayoral
nomination. Other primary rac-
es around the state have drawn
little interest or controversy.
Gov. Shapp has intervened in
the Democratic mayoral race
in a battle against the city's
party organization and has
made Rizzo his special target,
calling his "a brutal cop" lead-
ing "the forces of fear."
"Fear, coupled with division,
can only serve to tear us apart
and increase the tension with-
in our society," Shapp s ay s.
"We desperately need healers,
not dividers."
The governor is supporting
Rep. Green, 32, in order, he
says, "to end the domination of
boss controlled backroom, power
Shapp says there will be ano-
ther chance, another time for
State Rep. Hardy Williams, a
39-year-old lawyer and the only
black in the eight-man ballot.
With Green and Williams con-
testing for the same liberal and
independent voters, the blunt-
speaking Rizzo could coast in
on the votes of the conservative.
