VOL. LXVI, No. 153 ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN, FRIDAY, MAY 11, 1956J
At the thirty-third annual Honors Convocation today, hund-
reds of undergraduate students at the University of Michigan will
receive official recognition for their achievements in past years
For some, it will be a climax to an eventful and honor-filled
career of service and scholarship. For others, it will be the only
recognition of many' long nights spent burning the proverbial
midnight oil in an effort to achieve high grades.
Today, both groups, the quiet ones and the "campus lead-
ers" will be honored.
And this is only as it should be, for both contribute to the
proud tradition of high scholarship and effective leadership that
is the University of Michigan.
For the fourth consecutive year The Daily takes this oppor-
tunity to publish a supplement coinciding with the Convocation,
The purpose of. the supplement is to provide a record of student
honors, together with a description of their many activities.
Every effort has been made to see that the list is as complete as

sible to include members of all campus organizations. In these
cases, officers of the organizations have been listed.
Also included are all of the students who will today receive
recognition at the convocation. And mention is also made of
those who have been elected to campus scholastic and service
The Daily salutes those honored today, because, in carrying
on these traditions, they have paid a continuing tribute to the

Bridge Designer Will Deliver Talk
On Spiritual Challenge of Atom Age
The thirty-third annual Honors Convocation will be held at 11 a.m.
today in Hill Auditorium.
David B. Steinman, designer and chief engineer of the bridge
across the Straits of Mackinac, will be the speaker at the gathering,
designed to honor all undergraduates with a 3.5 or better average.
Students outstanding in special fields will also be honored.
Steinman, whose topic will be "The Spiritual Challenge of the
Atomic Age", was chosen by the Honors Convocation Committee, head-
ed by Erich A. Walter, assistant to the president.
Steinman, an internationally known bridge engineer, was honored
by France last year by being one of five named Laureat due Grand Prix
International de' Invention,

In its one year of existence
Student Government Council has
enjoyed a period of concerted ad-
Probably the acts of greatest
importance in achieving this pla-
teau were the driving ban revision
and the adoption of deferred sor-
ority rushing. As a result of a
student - faculty - administration-
townspeople meeting, new, driving
regulations were adopted. Start-
ing next fall every student over
21 and in good academic standing
will be allowed a car on campus.
The action concerning sorority
rushing helped to bolster the rise
of SGC. Although the Council's
decision t6 begin deferred spring
rushing was appealed to the Board
of Review, it was still upheld.
The proposed counseling study
is considered by many SGC mem-
bers to be one of the Council's
biggest steps forward.
In the future, SGC plans to
extend its activities more toward
the academic field. Problems such
as increasing enrollment are ad-
vancing even more problems in
counseling and teaching. The
Council plans to work further into
academic relations between the
student and the University.
