A community of scholars Is the ideal university community,
although often superior academic achievement is subjected to
lesser distinctions.
To compensate for this, the University will offer its formal
congratulations today to the hundreds of students who have
excelled in scholarship during the past year.
Yet the annual Honors Convocation can be but a small tribute
to the students who have maintained the high academic tradition
that is the University of Michigan's.
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, for the eighth consecutive year, The Daily presents
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 in the past year.
The Michigan Daily staff congratulates those to be honored
today for a job well done and wishes for them even higher attain-
ments in the future.
Discrimination Area
Considered by SGC
Student Government Council this past school year has in several
major undertakings carried out its function as an administrative and
representative student government.
In its work to eliminate discrimination in student organiza-
tions and local stores, SGC has expressed sympathy with student
anti- discrimination movements seen nationally and internationally as
well as on a University level.
Pass Regulation
A major result of this work is the new University regulation on
restrictive membership practices in student organizations. Replacing
an old ruling which applied only to groups seeking recognition after
the establishment of the ruling in

fornia Forest Play of 1920," and

Plants Year
Operating under the premise
that activities supplement aca-

ferent types of individuals.
The League - sponsored activi-
ties included a revised Freshman
Orientation program, a Vocational
Guidance service, an appreciation
tea for the entire League staff, a
revamped Buro-Cats organization,
class projects such as Frosh Week-
end, Soph Show, Junior Girl's
Play, and Senior Night.
The officers of the Women's
League Council for the past year
were Katy Johnson, president;
Karol Buckner, internal vice-pres-
ident; Sue Moag, coordinating
vice-president; Carlene Miller,
class projects vice - president;
Karin Allen, finance vice-presi-
dent; Mary Wilcox, chairman of
the Interviewing and Nominating
Committee; and Cyra Greene,

Teams Win Four Big Ten Championships

Four teams-tennis, wrestling, track and swimming-won Big Ten
championship honors for Michigan during the past year.
However, the overall athletic picture was not as bright, with the
number one sport, football, suffering another losing season and the
number two sport, basketball, stumbling through its worst season in
Going through the past year chronologically:'
The tennis team put on a terrific show of strength in rolling to
the Conference title at East Lansing last May. The Wolverine netters
won 66 of 68 sets, to win all six single titles and all three doubles
crowns-a feat that had been accomplished only once before in Big
Ten history.
Winning Netters Named
Jon Erickson, Gerry Dubie, Bob Sassone, Larry Zaitleff, Frank
Fulton, John Wiley and Wayne Peacock pulled off this amazing feat
under the direction of Coach Bill Murphy.
The track team under the direction of Coach Don Canham had
to settle for second in the Big Ten outdoor meet when its star
sprinter, Tom Robinson, was unable to compete and its chief com-
