RE: Subject Theme 1999-2000
CC: Dr. Specht, Chapter Advisor

I am responding to the memo sent to the presidents of all student organizations. However, I am graduating this Summer and I will not be able to coordinate the theme's speakers. In response to the University's search for a theme for 1999-2000, I am proposing the following theme.

There have been many advances made within the last 100 years in all areas of subjects offered as undergraduate degrees at Millersville. At the turn of the century, diseases were more likely to result in death, ,mail was sent by horseback or train across the US, iceboxes refrigerated food, elevators were pulled by hand, airplanes, space travel, computers, televisions and cable television did not exist, man's primary source of transportation was by horse, train or steam boats, and the US was in the midst of the Industrial Revolution. Thus, comparing life then with the world we live in today, the theme I would like to suggest is Achievements throughout the Century. I feel that this would celebrate and honor the accomplishments of inventions or ideas that have improved the quality of life throughout the 20th century.

Here are some examples of accomplishments in subjects which can be used as topics to speak about:
