Grants R stricted
To Fiie Arts Only
A Combined Curricufum
Form ed For Music And
Education Students
Ten tuition scholarships for for-
eign students and a new combined
curriculum for music school students
were created by the Board of Regents
at their monthly meeting held yester-
day afternoon.
The scholarships were established in
response to requests by high officials
of five countries in the Near East,
transmitted to the University through
Dr. Mehmet Aga-Oglu, lecturer in
Oriental art. The governments of the
five countries, Persia, Iraq, Turkey,
Syria, and Egypt, agreed to take care,
of all other expenses of the students,
if the University would create the
tuition scholarships.
Restricted To Fine Arts
It was provided that the grants will
be available to students in the field
of fine arts and will be good for one
year with a possibility of renewal.
They will not be issued to more than
two students from each country in
any single year.
The 'new combined curriculum for
music school students will enable un-
dergraduates to receive the degrees of
bachelor of music from the School of
Music and bachelor of arts in educa-
tion from the School of Education
after five years of study.
This new course will meet the pres-
ent stipulations for each of the two
degrees, Prof. Earl V. Moore of the'
music school explained yesterday.
Under the new set-up, students will
spend their first three years in the
School of Music, their fourth year i
jointly enrolled in the School of Music1
and the School otEducation, and their
fifth year exclusively in the School
of Education.
New Requirements
The new requirements will call for
the completion of 60 hours of work in1
liberal arts, 60 hours in music, 251
hours in education, including music
education and directed teaching, and
5 hours in optional subjects.A
Professor Moore stated that this
change will make it possible for grad-
uates to obtain certificates from the
Department of Public Instruction in
Lansing allowing them to instruct
both a music major and an academic1
minor. Under the present system, he
stated, this isnot possible.
Accept Gifts
The Regents acknowledged the re-
ceipt of various gifts, including the
Hewlitt Memorial Plaque, in memory
of Albion W. Hewlitt, professor of in-
ternal medicine and director of the
clinical laboratory from 1908-16. The
plaque was presented to the Univer-
sity by the widow, Mrs. Albion W.
Hewlitt, of San Francisco, Dr. George
E. Frothingham, of Detroit, and Dr.
C. Van Zwalenburg, of Riverside,
Dr. Howard A. Kelly, of Baltimore,
honorary curator of the museum of
zoology, contributed $100 for use by
Prof. Edwin B. Mains, director of the
University herbarium.
Gifts to be used for emergency
scholarships for women were received
from Collegiate Sorosis sorority, 1501
Washtenaw Ave., and the Detroit
Alumnae Association of the University
of Michigan. An additional sum was

contributed by the Michigan Athletic
Managers' Loan Fund.
These three gifts, totalling $400, will
be administered by the student loan
Meetings Approved
The Regents also approved a planj
to invite the American Mathematical
Society and the Mathematical Asso-
ciation of America to meet in Ann
Arbor from Sept. 9 to 14 next fall.
Clayton G. Hale, of Cleveland, was
appointed a non-resident lecturer in;
insurance in the business adminis-
tration school for the second semester.
Mr. Hale is at present a casualty un-j
derwriter for the firm of Hale and
Hale, Cleveland.
Bernard B. Hirsch, acting conduc-
tor of the Varsity Band, was reap-
pointed to the same position for the
second semester. Prof. Nicholas D.
Falcone, who is the conductor of the
band, and is now on leave of absence,
was given an extension of his leave
to include another semester.
