transfer students are invited to try

necessary to have a trained voice."
Only 10 per cent of the members of
the Glee Club are in the music
school according to Prof. Duey.
The time and place for tryouts
for the club will be announced
early in the fall.
University Choir ,
By far the largest of the cho-
ruses on campus is the University
Choir, directed by Prof.UMaynard
Klein of the music school.
This 300 voice choir is open to
all students in the University in-
terested in choral singing. Its an-
nual concerts include perform-
ances at Christmas, during March
and in the spring.
Last year the choir gave the Ann
Arbor premier of Bruckner's Re-
quiem Symphony and performed.

Brahm's Requiem and a program
of selected choral works.
Bach Choir . .
Prof. Klein also directs the Bach
Choir, a 180 voice ensemble. Stu-
dents may elect this choir as en-
semble 49 and. earn one hour's
credit toward graduation, accord-
ing to Prof. Klein.
Like the University Choir, the
Bach Choir is open to all students
at the University.
Michigan Singers . .
A more select singing group un-
der the direction of Prof. Klein is
the Michigan Singers. This organ-
ization has about 50 members,
mostly in the music school.
"The group gives concerts on
campus and on tour," said Prof.
Klein. In the past, they have
toured the East and South during

Many scholarships are available
to freshmen who have completed
one semester of work at the Uni-
These scholarships are awarded
on the basis of academic qualifica-
tion, leadership and participation
in campus affairs, and on the basis
of need. They have no connection
with the high school -standing of
the student.
"Students must have at least a
B average to obtain a scholarship,"
Ivan W. Parker, assistant dean of
men said. "Leadership calls for
obtaining a position of responsi-
bility on committees, holding of
offices and obtaining recognition
by other students," he added.
Many Factors in "Need"
Need is judged by many factors;
the number of dependents,' the
family income, and the parents'
ability to pay for education.
"No student whose family earns
more than $10,000 is eligible to
apply for a scholarship based on
need," Parker said.
"It is feasible for the student
who wishes to obtain a grant from
the University to show that he is
trying to solve his money problems
by himself," Parker added. To this
end, students should try, if at- all
possible, to find some type of part
time job.
Apply Early
It is advisable for students in-
terested in seeking aid to apply
for the scholarships in February.
This will give the office sufficient
time to process the requests. It
will also enable them to "insure
proper consideration" of each ap-
Scholarships are divided into
three classes, each of which speci-
fies different requirements. The
general scholarship is the largest
group and anyone enrolled in the
University who meets the require-
ments is eligible to apply. Last
year 70-awards were granted to
students in all fields of concentra-
The second class of scholarships
are those in the particular school
in which the student is enrolled.
Those interested should consult
the dean of the college or school
where they plan to concentrate.
Fill Out Applications
"In addition," Parker said, "stu-
dents should fill out application
forms in his office in order to be

eligible for other general scholar-
In the third class are enumer-
ated the special scholarships which
are given by outside agencies, cor-
porations and individuals. "Money
from industry, alumni handen-
dowments comprise the largest
outside source," Parker said. These
awards are based on' geographic.
area or study concentration.
"There are some scholarships,"
Parker said, "in which the money
is alloted to us in one sum. It is
thei up to the University to divide
it as it sees worthy. In these situa-
tions, the committee on scholar-
ships will give money to many stu-
dents without attempting to meet
entirely the financial needs of any
one, and without trying to give aid
to others."
Scholarships Total $1.4 Million
During the 1957-58 school year,
more than 4,000 graduate and
undergraduate students received
scholarships amounting to $1,400,-
One of the most unusual schol-
arships available is the American
Indian grant. This scholarship was
established by the University Re-
gents in recognition of three sec-
tions of land granted to the newly
-founded University in 1817 by
Indian tribes living in the area of
old Fort Meigs.
Students who are eligible for
this scholarship must prove that
they are of Indian blood. "This
can be done by obtaining a letter
from the 'chief' of the reserva-
tion," Parker said.
Scholarship applications can be
dbtained at the Scholarship Divi-
sion of the Office of Student Af-
fairs in the Student Activities
