Ecstatic levels of birthday pride at The University of South Dakota this hour, accompanied by trumpeting and much wearing-of-red. A proclamation from the governor: "WHEREAS, on the crisp morning of October 16, 1882, with Principal Epstein leading them, thirty-five young men and women began their studies; this three dozen students would be the nucleus of a University that would grow ... NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, by the Senate of the Eighty-seventh Legislature of the State of South Dakota, the House of Representatives concurring therein, that the Legislature commend and congratulate the University of South Dakota as it celebrates its sesquicentennial year."
