. A mbition, in any area, is too often regarded disparagingly———  l
as a poor trait; an unworthy characteristic. ·
i But had it been lacking in our founders we would not have
N  a nation, a Commonwealth or a University. l
i "He's too ambitious" is said of many. But many of these -
  achieve and contribute much to the whole society.
  Among our alumni, the ambitious have been the most suc-
 i cessful———and many have helped make possible the progressive i
l growth and value of their Alma Mater.
, Over the years, University of Kentucky administrations E
` have been ambitious for UK to become one of the nation's V
greatest institutions of higher learning. Their efforts have too .
often drawn unjust criticism. i  
g A nd now, because a forward-looking Administration seeks A
5 additional farm acreage to meet the vital research needs of an A
z expanding College of Agriculture, the cry of "too ambitious" is A
  heard once more. ig
fg A 5l—year—old oration appearing in this issue gives an .
  example of a driving ambition——0ne generated perhaps by envy
il ——but one which saved Greek culture for the world. C
i A
  nd so we alumni———motivated by loyalty, pride, and grati— A
t tude for the education we received—are ambitious for our Uni-
i versity to preserve and enhance its culture and to achieve a 5
. level of excellence that will shine among our sister institutions
‘ . over all the nation. Only thus can the University offer the grow- i
. ing numbers of future students even greater benefits than those i
l we ourselves received.
