We Pause To Honor...
IN THE complexity of a modern University, it is periodically
necessary to reassert the institution's most basic values, to
affirm the value and meaning of the concept of education.
Part of this affirmation is the honors convocation.
Despite the many distractions and distortions of a modern
university, the basic idea is still a community of scholars work-
ing together to broaden the scope of man's knowledge. Despite
the transient waves of this or that view on where educational
experience centers, the University always returns to a funda-
mental precept: education takes place in the classroom. The
overwhelming tone of the campus-whatever concerns students
at the moment-is still academic.
For this reason, we pause to honor those who have ex-
celled in their academic achievement. Certainly there are
significant values gained by those who participate in extra-
curricular activities; but the mental discipline of study is a
prerequisite for any kind of meaningful intellectual expansion.
These academic achievements are expressive of intellectual
discipline. For the most part they represent weeks and months
of hard and often boring work.
IT IS THIS difficult achievement we honor because it is in
the highest tradition of the University. Whatever the
momentary issues that have torn the campus, these students
have managed to devote themselves to the pursuit of higher
meaning. They have chosen to dedicate themselves to the ideal
of a dispassionate, humanistic search for truth.
The Daily staff extends its congratulations to these stu-
dents who have worked to make themselves a part of the
community of scholars. Through them, and those like them
who will follow and have preceded them; the University will
be perpetuated as a center of intellectual ideals in the com-
munity of mankind.

at the University's 39th annual Honors Convocation today.
Seaborg received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1951 for
his part in the discovery of plutonium. Since 1940, the re-

SGC Considers USNSA,
Reed Report, Bias Case
The enforcement of anti-bias regulations, the Office of Student
Affairs, and the United States National Student Association were main
concerns of Student Government Council during this academic year.
The Council tried and is in the midst of deliberating on the case
of Sigma Nu fraternity which had been charged with violating Univer-
sity regulations on membership selection.
At a hearing April 4, Dr. Sidney Smock, alumni spokesman for the
fraternity admitted technical violation of Regents Bylaw 2.14 and the.
membership regulations, but said that his fraternity has been work-
ing to eliminate its discriminatory membership clause for many years.
He urged that SGC give it more time to allow it to attempt to persuade

Seaborg, a native of Michigan
from the Upper Peninsula, was
awarded an honorary Doctor of
Laws degree from the University
at the 1958 commencement. Before
he accepted the position as chair-
man of the AEC, he was chancellor
of the University of California at
Key Figure
During World War II he was a
key figure in the development of
the atomic bomb under the Army's
Manhattan project. And in 1959,
Seaborg won the Enrico Fermi
Award, a top government prize for
atomic scientists.
Seaborg has long been concerned
with the problems of world peace
and survival. Issues which he be-
lieves to be of greater consequence
than any other problem in the
past. However, as an educator, he
has confidence in man's ability to
solve these problems.
In order to survive as free men
educators must groom the gifted
student as well as raise the educa-
tional level of the whole, according
to Seaborg. Even if there is no
war, the United States must make
sure that America is not the loser
in other areas. He thinks that the
educational goal should be to de-
velop to the maximum the capabil-
ities of every individual.
Importance of Excellence
However, Seaborg does recognize
the importance of excellence, as
a student, researcher, educator and
as Chancellor.
Mere academic excellence will
not insure world peace, Seaborg
has maintained. He knows the
value of communication and un-
derstanding in solving world prob-
Seaborg is a member of the joint
commission on radioactivity of the
International Council of Science
Seaborg has also emphasized the
importance of maintaining eco-
nomic and military strength. But
the source of this strength reverts
to education, he points out.
As an educator Seaborg is in-
terested in expanding graduate
studies. He believes that today's
complex world demands more ad-
vanced learning than ever before.

... heads AEC
AEC Co s
Atom. Energy .
Within U.S.
The atomic Energy Commission
was established in 1946 for the
purpose of providing and adminis-
tering programs for the develop-
ment, use and control of atomic
energy in the United States.
The purpose of the Atomic En-
ergy Act, which instituted the
AEC, was to develop a national
policy which would make the max-
imum contribution to the general
welfare, promote world peace, in-
crease the standard of living and
strengthen free competition in pri-
vate enterprise.
In order to implement these
goals, the Commission is given the
duties of encouraging private par-
ticipation in programs for research
and development, international co-
operation, production of atomic
energy and special nuclear ma-
terials, and the dissemination of
scientific and technical informa-
The AEC has the responsibility
to protect the health and safety of
the public, and to regulate the con-
trol and use of source, byproduct
and special nuclear materials.
The Commission is composed of
five commissioners appointed by
the President with the advice and
consent of the Senate. One of the
members is designated by the
President as the Chairman.
Glenn T. Seaborg is chairman of
the AEC. The other commissioners
are John S. Graham, Leland J.
Haworth, Loren K. Olson and Rob-
ert E. Wilson.
The operations of the AEC are
carried out mainly by industrial
concerns and by private institu-
tions under contract to the Com-
mission. The principal production,
research and development activi-
ties are conducted by contractors
in facilities owned by the AEC.
In its annual report to Congress
for 1961, the Commission noted a
number of "firsts." "Among them
was that America was the first na-
tion in the world to send compact
nuclear energy power .units into
space, namely TRANSIT satellites.
Project Gnome, the first experi-
ment of the Commission's Plow-
share Program, was carried out
successfully. This program is di-
rected toward demonstrating
peacefultcivil benefits achievable

Victories Come Hard to Michigan Varsity Squads

Associate Sports Editor
Victories came hard for Michigan's varsity teams this past year--
especially when they counted.
True, that since last spring about this time the Big Ten baseball,
outdoor track, tennis, and gymnastics titles were annexed. But more
notable were the "almost but not quite" performances of the football,
indoor track, hockey, wrestling, and swimming teams.
Only the golfers, however, who settled for eighth in last spring's
Conference meet after a whirlwind sweep through dual meet com-
petition, could really be classed as "disappointments."
Even the basketball team, for two years a Big Ten also-ran,
showed signs of regaining some strength.
But the big story lies in what might have been,
After Bump Elliott's footballers blasted the prides of the west
and east, UCLA and Army, on successive Saturday's to open the sea-
son Rose Bowl dreams began to float around campus and alumni
