    TRANSCRIPT: DON: ".. and we hope with him...on Gerald Ford...in the district of Columbia.



    "President Ford is now going to the podium to receive the honourary Doctor of Laws Degree conferred upon him by the Reverend? the President of the University of Notre Dame (??)."



    FORD: "Great Universities that pursue truth face the challenge that confronts the entire American people. It is whether we will learn nothing from the past and return to the introversion of the 1930s, to the dangerous notion that our fate is unrelated to the fate of others. I am convinced that Americans however tempted to resign from the world know deep in their hearts that it can not be done. The sprit of learning is too deeply entrenched. We know that whenever the bell tolls for freedom it tolls for us."
