FRIDAY, MAY 11, 1956

Small (5' 2"), blond Honors Con-
vocation student representative
Claudia Moore Smith has an un-
usual opinion about the Univer-
sity's size:
"I love its bigness," she says
with an enthusiastic s m 11 e.
"There's so much variety and op-
portunity-and a niche for every-
one if he wants it."
Claudia herself has found many
niches in almost every aspect of
campus and academic life. Her
activities have ranged from being
president of the education school's
senior class to leading a seventh-
grade Girl Scout troop for three
Soph Cab Chairman
She was chairman of two al-
campus clothing drives and chair-
man of Soph Cab, the forerunner
of Soph Scandals-"that seems
such a long time ago," she re-
marks, "even before they had men
in it."
Laughingly searching her 21-
year old memory, Claudia says she
was Maize team's patron's chair-
man for Frosh Weekend four years
ago, "and we won that year, I re-
In Many Activities
In another "niche" of her many1
activities, Claudia has been a work
camp committee chairman and a1
social action committee chairman
for the Student Religious Associa-
tion. She was on the SRA Coun-
cil for two years, beside being on

vision of slide-rule bound engi-
neers doesn't know Roger Ander-
The tall, amicable honors con-
vocation delegate belies all pos-
sible hunts of "unworldliness" that
allegedly come with his profession.
It would be hard to find an equally
cosmopolitan Michigan man.
Andersen is one of two student
members of the honors convoca-
tion committee. The committee,
which annually plans the program
of the convocation, determines
which awards are to be given, in
what order, chooses speakers, and
completes other arrangements.
"The emphasis is definitely on
scholarship, which is as it should
be," says Andersen. "It is the
only opportunity for many people
on campus who spend the major
part of their time here getting a
3.9 or a 4 point to be recognized.
He claims that his own average
is "not very high. "I'm not even
sure what it is now." It is doubt-
ful that there is cause for con-
cern, however; it is necessary to
have maintained a 3.5 average to
be recommended to the honors
convocation committee.

ing the past semester as chair-
man of Joint Judiciary Council, t

"We look on the problem of
maintaining democracy to please
ourselves, not you," he empha-
sized. "We will keep our demo-'
cracy, even if you go fascist."
Commenting upon the possibili-
ty of external Soviet threat, Prof.
Rao asserted that his country did+
not fear Russia, supported as India
is, with a large population and
Need No Alliances
"We don't need military alli-
ances. We are on good terms with
China and embrace her-from a
Then looking at the American
panel members, Prof. Rao shouted,
"Just because we don't follow your
particular angle of approach, don't
call us un-democratic.
"We are not neutralists, we are
activists. Just because our demo-
cracy differs from yours, don't call
us names."
Sam Sary, Member of Cambodia's
Royal Council and former Vice-
Prime Minister, was the Seminar's
final speaker. He quietly addressed
his first remarks to Prof. Rao,
who, throughout the sessions had
been discussing the Indian's high
esteem for human values,
Omits Important Factors
"My colleague, Dr. Rao, has
been emphasizing the human
values found in his country, but
he omitted two important factors
-serenity and calmness. One can
discuss the most passionate sub-

jects with a calm manner," he
added quietly.
Closing the discussion, Sary told
of Cambodia's position toward the
Soviets saying, "We fight Com-
munism primarily with ideas and
secondly with arms."
The Asians are visiting the Unit-
ed States under the auspices of
the U.S. National Commission for
UNESCO. These Eastern leaders
are endeavoring to learn more
about the American way of life
through these panel discussions.
The group will journey to Wash-
ington, D.C., Saturday, where they
will hold their final discussions be-
fore returning home.

Four Students
Given Awards
At Assembly
Four University education stu-
dents received awards at the edu-
cation school's 21st annual As-
sembly yesterday in the Rackham
Assembly Hall.
The Assembly honored outstand-
ing students who are candidates
for the teacher's certificate.
Charles E. Scholl, Grad., was
given the Burke Aaron Hinsdale
Scholar Award, which is presented
each year to a doctoral candidate,
and Richard C. Creal, Grad., re-
ceived the William H. Payne Schol-
ar Asgard, which is given to a can-
didate for a master's degree.
Raymond J. Pitts, Grad., was
presented with the Clifford Woody
Memorial Award, which is given
to assist a graduate student and
Gilbert E. Seeley, Grad., received
the Cleo Murtland Scholarship
Award, given to a student or form-
er student of the University who
is engaged in graduate study or
teaching in the vocational fields
of the state.

engineering honorary and Pi Tau1
Sigma, mechanical engineering
fraternity. An ex-presidient of Phi
Gamma Delta, and presently trea-
surer of the Engineering Senior
Class, he believes that "everybody
should do as many extra things
as they can, but you've got to re-
member that first you've got to
stay in school."
The future industrial engineer,
"a mechanical engineer with a
few Bus Ad courses," says that
the high number of technical
courses in his schedule makes it
necessary to "broaden myself
through working with people." He
obviously enjoys putting this theo-
ry into practice, for everyone who
comes in contact with him is im-

mediately put at ease by a broad,
boyish smile.
His ideal Saturday night? "A
few hours of sailing and a beach
party, or maybe a dance at the
fraternity." The person most
probably effected by this dream
is a Miss Marilyn Verduin, a senior
education major at Albion college.
Bright Future
His positively stated outlook on
national problems carries itself in-
to local areas. "I was up all night
after the recent elections . . . SGC
has had an excellent first year."
Andersen believes that the suc-
cess of any organization. depends
first upon gaining interest and
predicts a bright future for SGC.
