of business manager, but she is
as qualified as any man The Daily
has had in the past."
He added, "I am quite confident
that this group will continuethe
successful operation of The Daily,
maintaining its financial auton-
omy 'and thus maintaining its
editorial freedom. This group of
juniors coming in is the most qual-
ified and most deserving of any
group of students who have re-
ceived these honors."
Jeffrey Leeds, newly appointed
Associate Business Manager, said,
"The senior staff is looking for-
ward to a great team effort next
year; I'll be putting out my hard-
est efforts as my part of this
The business staff manages the
financial end of The Daily's pub-
lication; it solicits advertisements
from merchants, student groups,
and nation-wide firms, and with
the income from this makes the
paper an independent enterprise.
Arnold Cantwell Smith, secre-
tary general of the British Com-
monwealth, will be the speaker at
the University's 43rd annual Hon-
ors Convocation April 1.
The convocation, scheduled to
begin at 10:30 a.m., will honor
11000 students judged as superior
scholars. Smith's address will be
on "The Commonwealth in World
Smith is a native of Toronto,
Ontario. Educated in Canada, and
a Rhodes scholar at Oxford, he is
a widely experienced diplomat,
appointed last year to his recently
created post. He heads a per-
manent secretariat stationed in
London which has the duty of
being the impartial and vigilant
assistant of the Commonwealth
Generally unknown to Ameri-
cans, Smith assumed the post with
a wide background of experience
as an economics professor an edi-
tor, and a diplomat. As a diplomat,
he has served in various trouble
spots of the world, such as Moscow
and Cairo. He was the interna-
tional truce commissioner for
Cambodia and Indochina in 1955-
56, and has served in the United
Nations and at NATO ministerial,
meetings for Canada.
Smith will be honored with an
honorary degree at the convoca-
demand for his services exist for
Satisfying careers and a great
demand for his services exist for
the high school student interested
in engineering, says the dean of
the college of engineering.
"The need is unprecedented,"
Dean Gordon J. Van Wylen notes
in a statement for National Engi-
neers Week. "We never have seen
anything like this in terms of de-
The need and the opportunity
to find challenging and satisfying
careers in engineering arise from
the needs of society, he points
out: "Our lives and the world in
which we live are becoming in-
creasingly technologically oriented.
Not only do consumer products
such as cars and refrigerators re-
quire more technical development,
but many national problems de-
mand engineering solutions. These
include, for example, transporta-
tion, air and water pollution and
Van Wylen said these plus the
continuing needs of the space and
defense programs, illustrate why
"The demand for engineers is sky-
The dean urged high school stu-
dents interested in engineering to
take all the math, chemistry and
physics that they can get In their
high schools. But English is not
to be neglected, he cautioned:
"The engineers ability to read
and communicate effectively is be-
coming increasingly important."
In the engineering college, these
skills are developed further along
with engineering science, analysis,
design and the humanities. But
the rigors of these studies don't
prohibit engineering students from
taking part in campus life. Engi-
neers now head the Intrafrater-
nity Council, Van Wylen noted,
and several are varsity athletes.
All of these help prepare stu-
dents for positions of responsi-
bility and leadership, he said.
About one-third of all big busi-
nesses are now headed by persons
who were technically trained. The
University is well represented
among these, the dean said. It
has long been among the top few
schools in the country both as
regards quality and the number of
all engineering degrees granted, he
