Committee Awards Scholarship
Of $800 Per Year With No
Definite Limit As To Numbers
The Honorable Levi L. Barbour,
former Regent of the University,
upon traveling extensively through
the Orient, recognized the need for
more scientifically trained women
there and realized what could be done
by the University of Michigan along
these lines. Thus the Levi Barbour
Scholarship fund for Oriental Wo-
men was founded and in 1917 the
first scholarships were awarded.
Scholarship Is $800
This scholarship, which amounts
to $800 per student, is awarded by
merit and is administered "by the
Committee consisting of the Presi-
dent, the Dean of the Graduate
School, the Dean of the Literary Col-
lege, the Dean of the Medical College
and the Dean of Women.
The qualifications required of each
candidate are high standards of
character, physical fitness, scholas-
tic achievements, fitness for Univer-
sity work, the ability to use the Eng-
lish language and a desire to return
to their native country and be of
service there. The scholars are con-
sidered by recommendations from ac-
credited schools.
No Restrictions
There are no limitations as to the
number of scholars from any one
country or in the field of endeavor
they choose. No restrictions are en-
forced concerning race or religion.
The policy of the past has been to
select Oriental women only from Or-
New Fashion Gadget
Is Charm Lapel Pin
The season for suits has officially
arrived and jewelry shops are being

may be hung from the branches.
The miniature figures may be pur-
chased with the pin or added from
your own collection. This pin will

als living abroad. With the present
war emergency, this policy will be
necessarily altered because of tra-
veling conditions. Also a problem
has been created as to caring for the
graduate scholars now in the country.
There are now 24 Barbour schol-
ars at the University. There have
been as many as 45 at one time.
Hold Annual Dinner
The Barbour Scholarship fund has
paid high dividends in the training
of these women. The Barbour wo-
men are outstanding educational
leaders in the Orient today. Among
these outstanding women are two
college presidents: Dr. Yi-Fang Wu
of Ginling College and Lucy Wang
of Hwa Nan College.
In 1929, the policy was inaugurated
to hold an annual dinner which is
given by and for the Barbour Schol-
ars and members of the committee
in charge of the scholarships. This1
dinner will be held Saturday at the
League. The affair will be colored by
native dishes and costumes.

Men Freeze Corsage Gesture
To Contribute To War Effort

It's SPRING! A wealth of cliches
pop into the mind: birds 'n bees,-a
young man's fancy-and the inevit-
able spring formal, by which almost
every sorority celebrates this joyous
season: "two gardenias, please."
Sorority dances are traditionally
the only campus functions at which
corsages are entirely in order and
because they do come so few and far
between, are doubly appreciated when
they do arrive.
It seems, however, that right now
the people of this country are in no
position to squander 100 dollars or
so at a single function for anything
as useless as a floral offering. It
seems much more pertinent to the
times to direct the funds that would
be spent on this luxury to a cause
closer to the needs of the United
Many colleges have workcd out a
plan under which a sorority girl's
date for a formal dance donates the
sum of money which he would have
spent for a corsage to an organized
group, which corresponds on our
campus' to Lane Hall, Hillel, or the
campus-wide defense group. This
organization uses the funds for a
specific purpose such as the Bomber-
Scholarship Fund, and notifies the
girl that a contribution has been
