Throughout the year a series of Daily articles, banquets
and honors convocations give formal acknowledgment to the
hundreds of University students, who participate in campus
activities, win academic distinction and recieve scholarships.
Taken together, these achievements are an impressive tribute
to both the University's program and its students.
With the idea of giving lasting recognition to those
students who in some way won distinction for their work
during the past year, The Daily has compiled a special
Honors Supplement which presents a record of student
honors together with a description of the many activities
in which these-students participated.
Naturally, every club and campus group could not be
included in the pages of the supplement, so it was decided to
list the officers of groups serving students outside of their own
membership--in itself a very large category.
Also included are those people who were named to hon-
orary societies for their superior service to the University.
All of the students who received recognition in the Hon-
ors Convocation are mentioned, as well as the many people
who hold special scholarships for their academic achieve-
ments. In addition, a listing appears of the various scholastic
honoraries and their members.
