Ensian Issues New Call for Tryouts


A scholarship restricted to
"needy, worthy, young Christian
women of American ancestors who
are juniors or seniors" was receiv-
ed by the University Board of Re
gents at last Friday's meeting.
This scholarship, which is a
fund of $4,155.47, was donated
from the estate of the late Louis
L. Roberts of Ann Arbor.
The Ljean of Women's office ex-
plained yesterday to The Dai
that, t pyding to Ms. Roberts'
attorney, American ancestory" in-
cludes all students who are Ameri-
can citizens and whose parents
were ekher born in this country
or are now naturalized citizens.
University's policies in' accepting
scholarships, Arthur Brandon, di-
rector of university relations, said
that the Regents accept all offered
scholarships unless they are
"against some policy of the Uni-
Brandon added that there are
many scholarships with limita-
tions, especially with geographi-
cally stipulations. "We are al-
ways glad to receive scholar-
ships from certain geographic
areas," he said.
As to limitations on race, reli-
gion or nationality, Braidon point-
ed out that there aie fewer of
these typ scholarships than there
used to be.
"A policy of no discrimination
is usually followed," he explained
"The Loving Memorial is tan
exception to this rle"
However, as revealed in the
University pvblication on schol-
arships, there are three others
whichshave religious and racial
limitations. These are: the Em-
ma M. and Florence L. Abbott
scholarship open only to "Cau-
casian, Protestant women of
American parentage who nee
financial assistance"; the Crino
C. Smith Fund for "Worthy
young white men or women.."
the Winifred S. Gettemy Schol-
arship to be given to "White
junior or senior students maio-
ing in speech .."
As Brandon pointed out there
are also scholarships specifically
for American Indian student's,
Jewish students and Negroes.
IN THE introduction to the U1ri-
versity's booklet on Scholarships,
Fellowships and Prizes. it states
that "A scholarship is an outright
payment of money oy the Univer-
sity to a student wh. has been
selected s.onthe basis of one
or all of the following criteria;
(a) scholastic ability, (b) char-.
acter and () finanal need."
"Other and more specific cri-
teria of selection," ihe aticle con-
tinues," may be stated by donors."

University students' grades
reached a new high last year as the
all campus point average rose to
a record 2.58 during the 1951-52
academic year, Registrar Ira M.
Smith announced today.
The grade-point average, .01
point above the 1950-51 mark, was
the highest recoded in the 14
years since the point system of
computing grades replaced a per-
centage plan.
The-registrar said that the wom-
en undergraduate students, who
turned in a new record of 2.66,
were responsible for the new scho-

computing scholastic averages
since 1938, an A is valued at four
points, a B counts three points, a
C is worth two points and a D is

Taking the 14 student groups
as a whole, the highest average

a mark of 2.70, the highest for
the sororities since the grade-

Women also copped the next
three spots in the scholarship

en ranking second followed by a
2.64 for independent women and
a 2.62 for women's residence hals.

Stevenson Says
Fund Use Honest
Adlai Unable To Influence Aids
Through Use of Extra Pay Fund
CHICAGO-(IP)-Gov. Adlai E. Stevenson said last night none
of the Illinois state officials whose pay he has supplemented could have
been improperly influenced.
Addressing a nation-wide television and radio audience, the Demo-
cratic presidential nominee said he gave the officials the supplementary
pay "and I could have discharged them any time."

Revised Version of Bible
To Be Introduced Today11
One of the greatest events in religious history will be ushered in
throughout the country today when the Revised Standard Version of
the Holy Bible will be made public.
Dr. Harlan H. Hatcher will be the main speaker at special cere-
monies at 7:30 p.m. today at Hill Auditorium when the Bible will be
presented to the campus and to the city.
TOPIC OF THE ADDRESS will be "The Word of Life in Living
Language." President Hatcher's speech will be part of a program
which honors Leroy Waterman, Professor Emeritus of Semantics, who
was a member of the translation committee.
The new Bible has been worked on since 1935 according to
Prof. Waterman, and is the first of its kind whrch is not the
work of a single scholar or a small group.

Old Bibles
On Display
In Library
In conjunction with the publi-
cation of the newly-revised edi-
tion of the Bible, some of the old-
est Bibles still in existence are be-
ing displayed in the showcases
at the General Library.
MANUSCRIPTS in Greek, Lat-
in and Hebrew are among the
most ancient books in the dis-
play. Biblical scholars believe that
the original manuscripts of the
old testament were written in an
ancient square form of Hebrew .
It was thought that there
were no existing manuscripts of
the old testament written in He-
brew before the 9th century
A.D. until a discovery wyas made
in 1947 of the Dead Sea Scrolls
written in the 2nd century B.C.
containing the entire book of
Isaiah in Hebrel.
Among the Bibles in the showe-
cases is a copy of the second edi-
tion of the Tyndale Bible. Only
two copies of this edition, pub-
lished in 1534, are still extant.

I One of the main reasons for ie-
vision of the Bible is the change
in word meanings in the English
language. The new translation
contains more 'than 3,000 word
Since the King James version
of the Bible was writte a a number
of important discoveries have shed
Ii1-t on Hebrew and Greek manu-
scripts. One discovery occurred
when a Syrian peasant came upon
a sealed tomb while plowing.
Archeologists excavated the
site and found hundreds of clay
tablets with the distinctive,
wedge-shaped cuiform inscrip-
tions. When deciphered they
proved to be ancient Canaanite
writing. The Canaanites were
the rival tribe found by the Jews
in the wilderness, and their writ-
ings are of great importance in
dealing with Jewish history.
Sponsor of the new Bible is the
National Council of Churches of
Christ of the United States, a
group containing 40 of the major
Protestant denominations.
The Roman Catholic Church an-
nounced publication of a new edi-
tion of the first eight books of
the Old Testament yesterday. This
translation is an attempt at a
clearer, more accurate version than
the Douay Bible, which is based on
the 15th century old Latin Vul-
gate translation by St. Jerome.

when they leave private employ-
ment to enter-state service.
The fund to which the gover-
nor referred was made up of a
balance left over fromihis 1948
gubernatorial campaign, plus
subsequent contributions from a
group of Chicago businessmen.
Stevenson, in his speech Monday
night, recalled that in his inaug-
ural address as governor, in Jan-
uary, 1949, he said that a lot of
government positions don't pay
enough to attract the right kind
of men.
"TOO OFTEN," he declared at
that time, "the reward is abuse,
criticism, and ingratitude."
The Democratic nominee told
his TV-radio audience that some
of the men he has brought into
the state government came in
at great personal sacrifice from
the financial standpoint.
"At least four," he added, "have
had offers in private employment,
double or more the money they
could have earned in public em-
STEVENSON spoke from a clos-
ed studio at the Studebaker Thea-
ter. No audience was present.
He said that he long has felt
that candidates should disclose
their financial records so there
should be no misgivings about
their positions and whether they
are independent.
Stevenson said President Tru-
man had proposed more than a
year ago that high officials of all
branches of the government place
on the record each year their in-
comes from all sources.
