RHODES SCHOLARSHIPS:
No Award Winner Here in Six Years

The University has not had a
Rhodes Scholarship winner in six
years, and during that time there
have been few applicants for the
32 offers of a free education.
Rhodes scholarships were es-
tablished at the University of Ox-
ford in England by the late Cecil
John Rhodes, British administra-
tor and financier. He left an endow-
ment to cover 170 scholarship's for
students of the British Empire,
United tSates, and Germany.
Conditions of Eligibility
To be eligible, a candidate must
be a male citizen, unniarried and
with five years' residence in the

country of application. The Schol-
arship will be forfeited by mar-
riage after election.
He must be within the ages of 19
and 25, and his birthday must fall
between Oct. 1, 1930 and Oct. 1,
1936, with certain exceptions in the
case of military service.
The last condition of eligibility
is that he must, by the time of ap-
plication, have at least junior
standing at a recognized degree-
granting University, such as Mich-
igan.
The basis of selection falls into
four categorits of "scholastic abil-

ity," "qualities of manhood,"
"moral character," and "physical
vigor" as laid down by Cecil
Rhodes in his will.
Some definite quality of distinc-
tion, whether in intellect or char-
acter, is the most important re-
quirement for a Rhodes Scholar-
ship, and it is upon this that selec-
tion committees will insist.
No restriction is placed upon a
Rhodes Scholar's choice of studies,
although the course is linited to
one subject only. The work leads to
a B.A. degree at the end of the
two years.

Spring Fete!
Jobs Open
Petitions for Chairman of Spring
Week-end will be accepted starting
tomorrow, according to Union Pres-
ident Tom Leopold, '55..
Spring week-end alternates each
year with the Michigras carnival.
Leopold said that the program has
not yet been set for this year's
S p r i n g Week-end. Prospective
chairman should include an out-
line of their ideas and suggestions
The 1953 week-end included a
campus, soap box derby and a skit
night at Hill Auditorium with eight
house groups presenting original
skits.

COLLEGE ROUNDUP:
Campus Issu
Loyalty, discrimination, and seg-C
gregation are topics which will
once again concern college stu-
Jents.
On the campus of the Universi-
uy of California, the Board of Re-
gents is faced with a decision
which will have far-reaching ef-
fects in all colleges which require
the basic ROTC course for gradu-
ation. They must decide whether
Ralph Ornelas, a freshman Eng-
lish major, may attend classes aft-
er refusing to sign the new ROTC
loyalty oath.
Robert Jackson, a Negro student
et the University of Illinois, seeks
a re-trial in his suit against a cam-,

es ReviewedI
pus barber who refused to cut his
hair last spring. The Student-Com-
munity Human Relations Council
is backing Jackson with legal aid.
The court, in the first trial, reject-
ed Jackson's $500 damage suit.
University Segregation
The University of Texasthis Fall
cancelled its acceptance of George
Ford Jr. when it discovered he was
a Negro. A university spokesman
stated that the Supreme Court rul-
ing abolishing segregation does not
go into effect until after hearings
this Fall. The state of Texas also
supports two colleges primarily for
Negro students.
