Article I of the By-Laws of the
Association's Constitution tell the'
requirements for membership:
Basically, any person who has at-
tended Michigan for at least one
semester or a summer session, and
who pays dues of $1 per year or'
subscribes to the Michigan Alum-

who have a close relationship to

The Michigan Alumnus is a
magazine of commentary and Uni-
versity news that is published 10
times yearly. Featured in recent
issues of the Alumnus were ar-
ticles on such topics as why so
many students flunk out of col-
lege, and whether or not the col-
lege professor deserves all the
power he has.
The accomplishments of the
University's athletes are given full
coverage, and the paper keeps its

other Michigan Alumni are doing,
in a section called The Alumni
Coordinating Center
The Alumni Association serves
as a coordinating center for the
more than 200 Michigan Alumni
Clubs throughout the world. The
purpose of these clubs is to ad-
vance the University's interests.
Representing over 50 of these clubs
on campus are Student Governors.
The Student Governor Program
was started by Mrs. Allison Myers
Sin 1956 in order to get an even
closer relationship between the
alumni clubs and the University.

they have learned about the Uni-
versity and the Alumni Associa-
tion help "cut the maze of un-
certainty" in the dealings between
the alumni clubs and the Alumni
Association's .central office. Herb
Stoughton '63E is the on-campus
chairman of the Student Govern-
ors Program.
There are over 204,000 Michigan
alumni, and Field Secretary Philip
J. Brunskill said "The Alumni
Association would be very happy
if it could get half of its alumni
involved in Association activities."
Of the 80,000 alumni that live in
Michigan, 25,000 live in the De-
troit-Ann Arbor area. Detroit at-
torney Frank Ortman was elected
president of the Alumni Associa-
tion in 1961 for a three year term.
He was elected by the Associa-
tion's board of directors, who
come from the University Alumni
Clubs, Council and other Alumni
organizations, such ts the Alum-
nae Council.

Among the scholarships offered
to entering students are the La-
Verne Noyes Scholarships, the
Consumers Power Company Fresh-
man. Scholarships, the General
Motors College Scholarships, the
American Indian Scholarships, -the
Horace H. Rackham Undergradu-
ate Scholarships, and those schol-
arships sponsored by alumni and
alumnae groups of the University.
The scholarships offered by alum-
ni and alumnae clubs are usually
for students residing in the vicin-
ity of"the sponsoring club.
Several types of loans are avail-
able to' those students who have'
financial need, but are not eligible
for a scholarship. Most University
loans are short term as opposed
to long term. Students " borrow
funds during the year apd then
repay the loan out of s.ttmmer
earnings. The long-term loan is.
one where the student borrows
t noney to go to school, and
pays it back within a certain time,
usually about five years, after
graduating. Rea noted that the
University would life to make
more long-term loans, but it can-
not afford to tie up its funds for
such a long period.

President Hatcher has travelled
constantly during his tenure in
office He has renewed acquaint-
ances with past University gradu-
ates- in all corners of the earth
and he has brought friendship and
warmth back to Ann Arbor from
many lands.
Besides his regularly scheduled
duties, cGonferences 'and meetings
pop up suddenly anywhere from
San Francisco to Chicago. All of
these must be attended. One of
the more interesting extra-curric-
ular activities President Hatcher
takes part in is the Council for

includes the Big Ten universities
and the University of Chicago. The
CIC is working on a plan to pool

The Student Governors are an

He also emphasized that the of-
fice "is not a loan agency. A stu-
dent does not just submit an ap-
plication and get his rmoney. We
personally interview each student
to, find out such things as why
he needs the money, when he can
pay the loan back and whether he
and his family can contribute
more substantially to his support."
The..University also has a limit-
ed amount of funds for grants-in-
aid. A grant-in-aid is a cash pay-
ment to a student who has heavy
' financial need as a result of some
emergency, such as losing his job
or incurring a heavy medical ex-
pense. The main requirement for
a grant-in-aid is that of financial
" need, and the only scholastic re-
quirement is that the student is
ligible to remain in the Univer-
sity. The range of grade-point
averages for recipients of grants-
in-aid usually runs> from about
2.2 to 2.8.
