Eccles Member, Federal Reserve Board Federal Reserve Building Washington, D. C. Dear Mr. Eccles: Tour many friends on this campus are delighted to learn that you are to deliver the Commencement address. At this time you may be in need of the following information: Commencement Day: June Uth. Academic procession: Old Main. To begin promptly at 9:30 A.M. in Commencement Exercises: the field House. To begin promptly at 10 A.M. in The matter of academic attire is left optional with the speaker. All others will come in eaps and gowns. If you desire to address the graduates in academic attire, w i U you please let me know your hat size and the size suit which you wear. This year over 1,000 degrees will be conferred at Commencement. This will take considerable time. As you know, many traditional time-consuming matters also have to be taken care of at Commencement. In brief, I am leading up to the embarrassing question: Can you do justice to your mes sage within a period of twenty-five minutes? However, if your subject cannot be adequately presented in such a short period, do not hesitate to use all the time you need. Our publicity department would appreciate a copy of your address to be released on Commencement Dsgr if you can find the time to send an advance copy. Faculty members and students remember with satisfaction your last visit to the campus and look forward to hearing you again on June lw lours sincerely, I „ Chairman of Commencement Hay 22, 1951 Dear Mr. Chases I acknowledge receipt of your letter of May 12, giving me the details in connection with the Commencement Address I have agreed to give on June 4. I have a cap and gown which I got in 1943 at the time the University of Utah gave me an Honorary LLD. It is stored somewhere in Ogden, and if I decide to wear a cap and gown I will wear it if X can locate it. Therefore, you need not bother about academic attire for me. I note what you say about the time available for my address. I will try to confine it to 25 minutes, but in no case will I go beyond 35 minutes. With reference to sending you a copy of my address to be released on Commencement Day, I doubt that I will be able to send an advanced copy as I do not believe I will have an opportunity to finish writing my address in time to send it to you before I leave Washington on June 3rd. I will have some extra copies which I will give your publicity department on Commencement Day if that will be of any assistance to them. I assure you of ny appreciation for the opportunity to address the graduating class of your school, and 1 will look forward to being with you at the Exercises in Logan on June 4-th. Sincerely yours, M. S. Eccles. Mr. Daryl Chase* Chairman of Commencement, Student Personnel, Utah State Agricultural College, Logan, Utah.

Dear Mr. Eccles: We are delighted that you will speak at the Commencement exercises on June The newspapers are asking already for an advance copy of your address, I am reluctant to make this request, ‘ but I may point out that it is one way for the papers to write a more accurate version of the news story "based upon it. When they do not have an advance copy, they sometimes produce rather garbled accounts. If you would he so kind as to send me a copy we will reproduce it and get it to the papers. We look forward eagerly to your coming. Carlton Culmsee, Dean CC:gf May 25, 1951. Mr. Carlton Culmsee,. Dean, School of Arts and Sciences, Utah State Agricultural College, Logan, Utah.

We greatly appreciated your presence on the occasion of our commencement, and we have had many fine comments on your talk. We are printing several thousand copies of your talk for distribution. We hope you can be with us again. Yours truly, LLM:r Enclosure Note:the check returned was numbered 239509, dated 6/11/51 June 19, 1951. Dear Dr. Madsen; I just received, your letter o * June 13, enclos t ing a check for $300 as an honorarium for my commencement address. I have endorsed the check and am returning it to you herewith. I advised Mr. Chase that I had never accepted compensation for any address, that I feel it inappropriate for people in public service to do so. I suggested to him that the money might be used as a scholarship for some appropriate and worthy purpose in thé field of political science. Whatever plan you work out with Mr. Chase for the use of the money will be entirely agreeable to me. I felt honored to have the opportunity to make the commencement address to the graduates of the College and I am pleased to know that what I had to say met with approval. Sincerely yours, M. S.
