Outstanding Student Writers
keceive HtopwoodAwards

Hopwood awards for this summer
will be cash prizes of $75 and $50 in
each of four fields of writing: drama,
fiction, poetry and essay.
These awards were inaugurated in
1938 for students in the summer ses-
sion to supplement yearly contests
that have been held since 1930. Many
prizes, some $1,000 or over, have been
given for outstanding novels, poetry.
essays and 'short stories, many of
which have been published and have
received favorable critical reports.
Book Published
The most recent of these is "Delay
Is the Song," a book of verse by Ros-
amond Haas. Rosemary Obermeyer's
prize-winning novel of 1942, "Golden
Apples of the Sun," appeared late
in January. -
Avory Hopwood, playwright, who is
responsible for the largest set of prizes
for writing in any university, willed
one-fifth of his estate to Michigan
in 1922. His flair for originality,

coupled with his desire for the recog-
nition of exceptional talent, led to
the stipulation in his will that "the
student be allowed the widest possible
latitude" and that the "new, unusual
and the radical shall be especially
Hopwood Attended "U"
Hopwood attended the University
of Michigan in 1901, was a member
of Phi Betta Kappa, and was gradu-
ated in 1904. Fresh from college, he
worked for the Cleveland Leader and
wrote his first play,"Clothes," in col-
laboration with Channing Pollock.
In the course of the next 22 years
he wrote 50 plays, most of which were
successful and have been produced
in the United States, Canada, and
the principle countries of Europe and
the Orient.
At the age of 44, Hopwood drowned
while swimming off the beach near
Juan-Les-Pins, France. Most of his
million-dollar estate went to his
mother, Jule Hopwood, and, upon her
death, Michigan received the bequest
which forms the Avery Hopwood and
Jule Hopwood Awards in Creative

All," "Ladies in Retirement," and
"She Stoops To Conquer."

ElectionsRun By
Judiciary 1ouncil
The Judiciary Council for Men
handles elections and sees to it that
everything on campus runs smoothly.
It's supposed to handle complaints,
but complaints are few. It's supposed
to handle cases of misconduct of male
students, but these are even fewer.
So the Judiciary Council for Men
concentrates on the elections of all
class officers (be they men or wo-
men), the Board of Student Publica-
tions and the Board of Athletics.
