Twenty-six three year graduate
fellowships are now being offered
to college seniors graduating dur-
ing 1947-48 by the Pepsi-Cola
Scholarship Board.
The fellowships, which pay full
tuition and $750 a year for the
three years, may be used in any
field of study at any accredited
graduate school in the United
States or Canada.
Official application blanks may
be obtained from the Pepsi Cola
Scholarship Board, 532 Emerson
St., Palo Alto, Calif., and at a
later date will be available at Rm.

Will Speak Today
Dr. David G. Ryans, associate
director of American Council on
Education, will speak on "Trends
in the Selection of Professional
Personnel" at 4:15 p.m. today in
Rackham Amphitheatre.
The lecture is being sponsored
by the Bureau of Psychological
Services and the education school
and is open to the public.

people, Sloss explained, will in-
clude educational sessions on how
state and national governments
actually work, research on specific
subjects by special committees,
opinion surveys, discussion groups
and informal debates.
Group study and practical work
will be fused on a scale no other
campus organization has attempt-
ed, he said: the resulting inter-
action will constitute a phase of
student life now largely neglected.
Student issues will be stressed,
Sloss said, referring in contrast
to campus groups that are bogged
down in endless discussion of na-
tional and international issues.
Concentration on the 18-year vote,
a national education bill and
physical and mental health pro-
grams, he specified; will be supple-
mented by distribution of absentee
ballots and voting regulations to
students, and surveys of youth
YPCM can conduct campaigns
to intensify enthusiasm inastudent
government and for the National
Student Association, he said -
projects which are awkward for
those groups to carry out them-
selves, and which no other or-
ganization has undertaken with
sufficient vigor.

Waring and his Pennsylvanians,

Special sessions in arranging,
microphone a n d broadcasting

As a result of the Workshop,
plus publication of Waring ar-
rangements, broadcasts and con-
certs, the Glee Club choral work
has become a standard for other
singing groups.
A Men's Glee Club spokesman
suggested yesterday that appar-
ently the Waring glee club and the
entire Pennsylvanian group are
looking forward to their Michigan
visit, for they have played tradi-
tional Michigan songs on several
of their recent broadcasts.

Mexican musical comedy with
English subtitles, starring Tito
Guizar and Gloria Marin, will be
shown at 8 p.m. tonight and to-
morrow at Lydia Mendelssohn
Guizar plays the part of a gay
caballero from Michoacan, an
owner of a lumber mill, who is
equally at home on the guitar
or singing religious songs.
Among the numbers rendered
during the film, are "Lindo Mich-
oacan," a lively song and dance
number, and "Ave Maria," sung
in Spanish, during a solemn relig-
ious festival.
Gloria Marin plays the lead to
Guizar's romantic efforts. She is
the owner of a great part of Mich-
oacan, who has come to the tim-
berlands to foreclose a mortgage,
only to succumb to Tito's music
at the Fiesta time.
Supporting Marin .and Guizar,
is Victor Manuel Mendoza, char-
acter comedian of the Charlie
Chaplin style, who enacts the part

ments to enroll as officers or en-
listed men in the National Guard
or Naval Reserve will not per-
manently lose their rights to
benefits provided by law for them

quired to waive disability pay-
ments but while receiving active
service pay, they may not also re-
ceive compensation or a pension.
