Times Current Events Contest
Changes Contest Rules
Prof. Everett S. Brown, of the polit-
ical science department, returned to
Ann Arbor yesterday from a meeting
of the Intercollegiate Council of the
New York Times Current Events Con-
test which was held Monday in New
York City.
Prof. Brown, as chairman of the
local committee, represented the Un-
iversity of Michigan, while faculty re-
presentatives from Amherst, Brown.
Bryn Maur, Columbia, Cornell, Chica-
go, Dartmouth, Mount Holyoke,
Princeton, Smith, Pennsylvania, Vir-
ginia, Vassar, Yale, Wellesly, Wil-
liams, The United States Military
Academy, and The United States Na-
val Academy were also present.
Changes Are Made
Several important changes in the
rules covering the contest this year
have been made. In an effort to en-
courage more students to participate
in the contest, it was decided that the
local prize of $250.00 at any institu-
tion might be divided into as many as
three prizes at the discretion of the
local committees.
Another important change was made
by eliminating the second examination.
Instead of requiring the winner at
each university to take another ex-
amination in competition for the prize
of $500, as was formerly the case, it
was decided to hold just one three
hour examination, the questions for
which are to be selected by a con-
trol committee.
The date of the contest was set
tentatively at April 27, or 28, 1928.'
The period of events to be covered by
the examination will be those from
May 1, 1927 to the date of the con-
test.
