ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN, FRIDAY, MAY 8, 1959
A community of scholars is the ideal university community,
although often times superior academic achievement is subjected
to lesser distinctions.
To compensate for this, the University will offer its formal
congratulations today to the hundreds of students who have
excelled in scholarship during the past year.
Yet the annual Honors Convocation at Hill Auditorium this
morning can be but a small tribute to the students who have
maintained the high academic tradition that is the University
Today will climax a full college career of scholarship for
many. It may be the 'beginning of the same for others and per-
haps it may serve to spur those capable of outstanding scholar-
ship to as yet unattained heights.
Today, also, for the seventh consecutive year, The IDaily
presents its Honors Edition in recognition of both excellence in
scholarship and extra'-curricular activities. Every effort has been
made to 'include *the- names of those who have distinguished
themselves at 'the University over the past year.
Space limitation, however, has made it impossible to include
the members of all the many campus organizations. Thus, only
the officers of these organizations have been included in this
The Michigan Daily staff congratulates the list of those to
be honored today for a job well done and an, equally sincere
wish for higher attainments in the future.

STRENGTH-The stately buildings of the Law Quadrangle portray the quiet strength of higher learning. In the quadrangle, the 'concepts
of justice and equality through law are stressed to the utmost. The law library is one of the finest in the United States housing briefs and
court decisions which have influenced the course of human events. Lawyers and students can also study in the Lawyer's Club located in the
quadrangle. The large and well-furnitured lounge adapts itself to the tone of study and learning found throughout the quadrangle.

versity in 1937.
From 1941 to 1944, she taught at'
the City College of New York,
where she was the first wohan
on its history faculty.

staff of the British Broadcasting
