We Pause To Honor






The multiplexity that is the University grew out of a central
core of inquiring scholars seeking to penetrate the dark recesses
of the unknown. The academic tone of the campus is still the
dominant one, but it is often submerged beneath others, transi-
tory and less meaningful.
To reaffirm its dedication to the academic ideal and honor
outstanding scholastic achievement, the University holds yearly
convocat on exercises.
The formal congratulations presented at, Hill Auditorium
this morning can be but small tribute to the students who have
maintained the high academic tradition of the University.
Today will climax a full college career of scholarship for
many. It may be the beginning of the same for others and
perhaps it may serve to spur those capable of outstanding
scholarship to as yet unattained heights.
Today also, for the ninth consecutive year, The Daily pre-
sents 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 nmade 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 Daily staff congratulates the list of those to be honored
today for a Job well done and an equally sincere wish for higher
attainnents In the future.

bee's degree will laud him as an
heir to the Hellenic tradition in
his belief that history is a moral
and philosophic science.
The University will also confer
a similar degree to Frederick G.

... History as a system

'U Historians
Probe Id e as

"There are two great exponent
of the cyclic theory of history ii
recent times," Prof. Preston Slos
son of the history departmen
noted this week.
"One is the German, Oswal
Spengler, and the other is Arnol
Toynbee," he said.
Of the two, Prof. Slosson find
Dr. Toynbee, who is appearin
here today as guest lecturer at th
Honors Convocation, "by far th,
more interesting~ and reliable be
cause he gives concrete facts an
has a flowing literary style."
Prof. Slosson feels, however, tha
while Dr. Toynbee is full of excit
ing and interesting suggestion;
both he and Spengler err "in talk
ing about civilization as if it wer
an organic being."
'A Bunch oZ Habits'
Actually, according to 'Pro
Slosson, civilization is simply "
bunch of habits, folkways and ac
complishments, and these are sel
dom all together forgotten.

civilization more as a continuot

Profs. John Bowditch and Wil

department, disagree with Di
Toynbee's level of generalizatio

"While we admire his incredibl

Michigan Teams Draw Cheers, Groans

The past year in Michigan athletics was one of exultation and
dejection; of fulfilment and disappointment; cheers and groans-all
tied to triumph and defeat.
Last spring, two pieces of championship silverware came to
rest in Ann Arbor as the track and tennis teams continued to dom-
inate the Big Ten. Gymnastics and indoor track (under the captain-
cy of Tom Robinson) squads won championships this winter, with
swimming and wrestling teams narrowly missing titles.
Golf and baseball teams fell in the also-ran class last year, but
are back in title contention this spring, along with track and tennis
The 1960 football squad surprised many people except hard work-
ing Coach Bump Elliott and his staff, as sophomore quarterback Dave
Glinka and a tough defense, led them to a 5-4 record and a fifth place
