All Students With Strong
Scholarship Records Are

An opportunity for students to
study the operation of the Federal

tution of Public Affairs, 80 Federal
government summer interneships and
educational conferences in public af-
fairs at Washington, D. C., will be
offered to graduate and undergrad-
uate students interested in govern-
ment and politics.
The program is similar to one of-
fered last year for interneships begin-
ning this past February, through
which 31 young men and 11 young
women are now studying in Washing-
ton. In order to offer similar ad-
vantages to those unable to obtain
leave of absences from their regular
school work, the summer program is
being presented.
The core of the Institution's pro-
gram is an interneship with a par-
ticular government agency or a study
project which may cover several gov-
ernment or extra-government agen-
cies. The interneship or project is de-
cided upon by the student with the,
advice of the Institution's staff and,
subject, in the case of an interneship
to final approval by the government,
officials who are to supervise it. Proj-
ects now being undertaken by stu-
dents in Washington are:' assistant-
ship to an administrative official;
studying of the functions of a bureau
or department from the inside; cross
section ,study of several government
agencies; study of some aspect of
Congress or congressional action; or,
in some cases, Independent research
In addition to these individual proj-
ects, the Institution holds a series of
three or four weekly forum discus-
sions led by authorities in the fields
considered. Written reports of prog-
ress ax'd a final report are required.
All college undergraduates, grad-
uates and graduate students are
eligible for the interneships who ful-
fill the following qualifications: the
applicant must present a strong scho-
lastic reord, a demonstrated interest
in government and politics, and qual-
ities of character and ability, espe-
cially those having to do with leader-
Michigan students interested in ap-
plying for an interneship may obtain

political science department, who is
chairman of the local committee in,
charge of selecting applicants. Ap-
plication forms are to be sent direct
to the Admissions Committee, Na-
tional Institution of Public Affairs,
1001 Fifteenth Street, Washington,
D. C.
Registration of internes and the
inauguration of interneship projects;
will take place from June 10 to July
3. The individual summer interne-I
ships will last a minimum of two

As 'Bob' Dies Of Heart Attack

Returns To Russia

"Johnny so long at the fair
Oh, oh, what can the matter be?"
The University flag flew at half-
staff yesterday to mourn the passing
of one of the most colorful figures
of the campus.
"Bob," custodian of the Health
Service, who'd "rather die than have
to stop whistling," succumbed to a

so much as to have a student who

And when nurses from the Health
