Hard-working University un-
dergraduate students last year
compiled the highest grade point
average recorded here since pre-
war days.
It is believed that the latest
grade computations may be the
highest ever recorded at the
University. Registrar Ira Smith
said that only records for the
past seven years' were available
to make comparisons.
'. Averages of both men and wo-
men for the 1946-47 zoomed over
* the grades recorded during the
previous year. The grades of men
students showed the greatest in-
crease jumping five points over
the previous year for a 2.54. Wo.
men's grades also jumped two
points to give them an average of
2.62. The combined average, high-
est recorded here for seven years,
was 2.56.
"The improvedI scholarship re-
cord shows that the student body
in general has met the challenge
presented by the seriousness-of-
purpose of the veterans," Regis-
trar Smith declared.
The Dean of Students yester-
day was unavailable for com-
ment -on how the new, high
student grade averages might
affect interpretation of tighten-
ed conduct regulations which
have recently come under fire.
A breakdown of the general
grade averages reveals that upper
class women living in residence
halls topped the list with a 2.68.
This group has led the standings
for the past seven years.
Sororities ranked second on
the list with a 2.65 grade aver-
age. Third place honors went
to women's co-operative houses
with 2.63.
The grade point averages were
broken down into 16 groups. Thir-
teen of these groups showed an in-
crease over 1945-46 averages. The
greatest gain of any of the 16
groups was achieved by freshmen
men who showed an improvement
of 11 points over the previous year
with a total of 2.49.
Within the fraternities and
sororities both Sigma Alpha Mu
' and Gamma Phi Beta who lead
their respective divisions, re-
corded a 2.75.

at a meeting marked for a time
by bitter factionalism, which de-
veloped over points in the organ-
ization's machinery.
However, Prof. John L. Brumm,
former chairman of the Univer-
city's journalism department, was
overwhelmingly elected president,
and disputes over items in the
Constitution were finally resolved
Observers, by and large, felt that
the organization's machinery had
been effectively set into motion.
The meeting, going overtime on
the matter of organization, tabled
the questions of the N.S.A.'s Bill

asserted that the group's first and
main task is to protect Commu-

One of the major points of
issue at the conference involved
the matter of the executive

favored restricting the top posi-

The other faction felt that no
such limitation should be imposed,

School Issue
The contr oversial Willow Village
school question flared anew yes-
terday with the announcement
that an anti-discrimination com -
mittee has been formed.
The committee, made up of
several local and campus organi-
zations, plans to protest the action
of the Willow Village School Board
in transferring a number of Negro
children to a segregated school.
The anti-discrimination group
has sent letters to Governor Kim
Sigler and Superintendent of Pub-
lic Instruction, Eugene B. El-
liott. The letters ask that the
officials investigate "racial dis-
crimination" in the school at Wil-
low Village.
The group is now investigating
means whereby they can take
legal action against the school
board. Miss Toledo Snyder, a
member of the. Walpole Commit-
tee of parents, said the group feels
that the school board is acting
in violation of the educational
laws of the State of Michigan.
The anti-discrimination com-
mittee includes the campus AVC,
IRA. JCA and several local Negro
