Loyola Marymount University, the largest Catholic university in Southern California, awarded 1,371 diplomas, including 1,029 undergraduate degrees and 342 graduate degrees, at its 73rd commencement Saturday. Speaker Peter V. Ueberroth, now commissioner of baseball and former chairman of the Los Angeles Olympic Organizing Committee, said the "most important thing about the Olympics" was China's first-time participation in the Games and American friendliness toward them, exemplified by the standing ovation accorded Chinese athletes at the Opening Ceremony. Ueberroth, who recalled that he failed to make the 1956 Olympic water polo team, told the graduates not to be afraid to take chances and to fail. Ueberroth received an honorary doctorate of public service.
