"One of my main hopes this year
is that we can get the best pos-
sible relationship between foreign
and American students," expressed
the newly appointed Director of the
Internatiohal Center, James M.
"It has been my experience that
foreign students have so much to
learn from American students and
that students from the United
States have a great deal of enjoy-
ment from associating with stu-
dents from abroad," the affable
young director added.
Davis received n*s appointment
to the post vacated upon the re-!
tirement of Esson M. Gale in Au-

was counselor for international
services and executive director of
the Foundation for International
Understanding Through Students
at the University of Washington in

"Hwever," he commented. "my

Honors Set
For In-State
'Operationdictionary' will be the
culmination of a series of honors
for 700 freshmen picked for their
outstanding achievement in state
high schools, at a Regents-Alumni
Honors Convocation to be held at
7:30 p.m. tomorrow in the Michi-
gan League Ballroom.
Oreon E. Scott, '94, one of the
speakers at the convocation and
donator of the American Colle-
giate Dictionaries which are re-
quired for every freshman student,
will present one to each winner.
President Harlan Hatcher will also
speak during the evening.
Each dictionary has the Univer-
sity seal and the words "A gift
from the Oreon E. Scott Founda-
tion" emblazoned in gold leaf on
the cover.
Following the convocation pre-
sided over by Erich A. Walter, As-
sistant to the President, a recep-
tion will be held on the second floors
of the League. This will give the
winners an opportunity to meet the
Regents, who have been invited,,
members of the administration and
the Honor Awards Committee on
University Scholarships.
Honor certificates will be pre-
sented to the students here at the
convocation for the first time. Pre-
viously they were mailed to the
high schools.
The purpose of the non-monetary
Regents-Alumni Honor awards is
to recognize and reward outstand-
ing achievement per se and not
solely for financial need.
Chosen from more than 1300
Michigan high school students rep-
resenting more than 300 schools,
the 700 winners were picked on the
basis of their high school records,
community status, recommenda-
tions of the high school principal
and teachers, and results of a spe-
cial aptitude test.
Approximately 450 of the recipi-
ents of the Regents Alumni Honor
Award have received scholarships
on the basis of their present finan-
cial need, which can be renewed
to cover four years.
