    By the way, Kennedy, who was auditing classes at Stanford in the fall of 1940, attended the 1940 Big Game at Memorial Stadium.

    The last time that I came to this stadium was 22 years ago, when I visited it in November of 1940 as a student at a nearby small school for the game with Stanford. And we got a--I must say I had a much warmer reception today than I did from my Coast friends on that occasion. In those days we used to fill these universities for football, and now we do it for academic events, and I'm not sure whether this doesn't represent a rather dangerous trend for the future of our country.
