FEW APPLICATIONS:

'U' Poorly Represented
Among Rhodes Scholars

By HARLAND BRITZ
Mighty Michigan, an athletic
and educational leader, has been
playing second fiddle when the
time comes to hand out Rhodes
Scholarships.
In the post-war era, only one
University student has been in-
cluded in the group of 32 Ameri-
can students who annually take
the trans-Atlantic trek to vener-
able Oxford University in England.
THIS TREND needn't neces-
sarily continue, Prof. Clark Hop-
kins of the archaeology depart-
ment and chairman of the Rhodes
Scholarship Committee here,
claims. "Many of our top men are
just not applying for the scholar-
ships and are losing the valuable
New AFROTC*
Course Sated
Air Force ROTC cadets at the
University will soon receive ten
hours of instruction in atomic
energy and radiological defense,
Colonel William Todd, chairman
of the air science and tactics de-
partment, announced yesterday.
The instruction will be given to
cadets enrolled in the general-
technical course, who are com-
posed largely of engineering stu-
dents. Faculty members in the
physics,. engineering, and public
health departments, will partici-
pate in the program.
The new lecture series reflects
a policy of the AFROTC of invit-
ing the best qualified persofnel
available as guest speakers to sup-
plement the instruction received
from the regular Air Force staff,
Colonel Todd said.

opportunities they offer," he
maintains.
Competition is keen for the
grants, and the University must
get its superior students to apply
if we ever hope to win any,
Prof. Hopkins says.
One reason for this, Prof. Hop-
kins feels, is that applications are
due early in the fall, before many
potential winners are settled in
Ann Arbor for their semester's
study. The deadline announce-
ment comes so soon that they put
it off till the next year.
-* * *.
HE ALSO says that there is a
hesitancy of signing up for the
two years of study, required by
the terms of ,the scholarship. The
insecurity of the times preclude
any long range planning for many
male students. .
What kinds of men are get-
ting Rhodes Scholarships? Ac-
cording to the will of the late
'diamond magnate, Cecil Rhodes,
who set up the prizes, the cri-
teria are:
1-Literary and scholastic abili-
ty and attainments.
2-Qualities of manhood, truth,
courage, devotion to duty, sym-
pathy, kindliness, unselfishness.
3-Exhibition of moral force of
character and of instincts to lead
and to take an interest in his
schoolmates.
4-Physical vigour, as shown by
interest in outdoor sports or in
other ways.
SCHOLASTIC attainment is es-
pecially valuable, Prof. Hopkins
hinted.
As selection plans are now set
up, students that live in the
state but attend out-of-state
colleges can compete in the
Michigan region.
"Many of them do this," Prof.
Hopkins said, "because competi-
tion isn't usually as difficult here
as it is in the East."
The greater proportion of stu-
dents who try are from the East
he claimed, because there is a
greater interest in England there.

U' Joins in International

Thneaure noni
By ALICE BOGDONOFF
This month theatres all over the
world will focus their spotlights on
the stage as a new medium for in-
ternational understanding.
In 1949 at a United Nations
UNESCO conference a member of
the American National Theatre
and Academy suggested that one
month of the year be set aside in
which theatres produce plays to
emphasize themes of world peace
and harmony.
* * *
WITH ANTA circulating mater-
ial, information and adviee on In-
ternational Theatre Month to the-
atres throughout the country. the
American venture was so success-
ful that by 1951 the movement
became world wide.'
"I like to think of the theatre
not so much as an art but, as
human communication," said
actress, Helen Hayes with re-
gards to the International The-
atre Month.
"This is why the theatre espe-
cially can be so effective in carry-
ing UNESCO's message of hu-
manity, in making men all over
the world see each other not as
alien members of a strange coun-
try, but as fellow human beings
who share the same. hopes, the
same handicaps and even the
same mistakes," the renowned ac-
tress continued in a written state-
ment supporting the program.
IN EXPLAINING the scope of
the movement Miss Hayes re-
marked, "During this month of
March theatres all over the world
will be presenting plays by foreign
playwrights which introduce the
audience to the peoples and prob-
lems of another land."
Last year in the United States
alone six hundred theatres par-
ticipated in International Thea-
tre Month.
On March 26, 27, 28 and 29, the
University Speech Department will
mark the celebration of Int'erna-
tional Theatre Month with a pro-

Pn rogramn
duction of Robert Sherwood's
"There Shall Be No Night."
Picking up the International
theme, the play tells the story of
a. Finnish doctor and his family
in their struggle to defend their
homeland from Russian invasion.
Tickets for the play will go on
sale March 24 at the Lydia Men-
delssohn box office.
Indistrial health
Conference Slated
"What's New for Fifty-Two" in
the programs of the industrial
health will be presented and dis-
cussed at a conference of the pub-
lic health school March 26.
A morning section for medical
directors and industrial nurses
and an afternoon section for safe-
ty directors and industrial hy-
gienists are scheduled.

UJA Drive
KickoffSet
The 1952 United Jewish Appeal's
drive will be launched in Ann Ar-
bor Saturday, Bud Schwartz, cam-
paign co-chairman announced.
"The results of this life-saving
effort are of crucial importance
for hundreds of thousands of peo-
ple in Israel and other parts of
the world," Schwartz said.
Money donated to the drive will
help the Israeli immigrants to
consolidate their achievements of
the last four years. It will also go
to aid in the evacuation of refu-
gees from "friction" zones in Eur-
ope, Asia and Africa. The quota
for the '52 drive is $151,500,000.
In order to spark the drive in
Ann Arbor, a local UJA central
committee of Gloria Krigsten, '55,.
Sue Popkin, '54, Fred Keidan, '52
and Bud Schwartz and Ray Slavin
of Hillel has been set up. Anyone
interested in helping with the
drive will be welcomed at the Lane
Hall offices, Schwartz said.

Although a steady line of pros-
pective donors has been filing
through the mobile blood dona-
tion unit located in the South
Quad, the receipt of blood pledges
reached a new low yesterday.
Only nine cards were turned in
at the Office of Student Affairs,
compared to 100 to 150 received
daily at the beginning of last week,
Foiled
Despite a technical flaw that
prevented the University tele-
tour from going on the air Sun-
day, Prof. Wilber J. McKeachie,
of the psychology department
donated his pint of blood as ad-
vertised, but without the antici-
pated viewing audience. A
burned out receiver on Burton
Tower prevented the scheduled
telecast of the blood donation
from being transmitted, accord-
ing to WWJ-TV engineers. In
addition to Prof. McKeachie,
several people who had gathered
to watch the "show" decided to
donate blood.
according to Martha O. Shipman,
secretary to Joseph H. Fee, assis-
tant to the Dean of Students.
A TOTAL of 1,127 pledges have
now been signed for the campaign,
which is entering the last week.
Fee urged students to dupli-
cate last week's showings, and

to call immediately at the office
for an appointment.
Although the mobile unit must
leave campus Friday, Fee assured
all who haven't made donation
dates that facilities will be made
available so that their blood may
be counted in with the Univer-
ity campaign for the armed forces.
More than 600 pints of blood
have now been donated according
to Mrs. Ethyl L. Athinsbn, execu-
tive secretary of the Washtenaw
County Red Cross chapter. She
explained that the University
population has shown a smaller
percentage 'of donor rejections
than in other localities, averaging
only 15 per cent.
