The Calm Before the Storm

SUBCOMMITTEES TOO:
Three Committees Help
SGC Serve 'U' Students

Strange Sights at Homecoming

Three committees, composed of
students, are working under the
direction of the Student Govern-
man Council to tangle with cam-
pus problems in a centralized way.
The Public Relations .and Elec-
tions, Campus Affairs, and Human
and International Welfare com-
mittees are headed by SGC mem-
bers who assure a close relationship
with the council.
The Public Relations and Elec-
tions committee is planned to serve
a threefold purpose. Divided into
three subcommittees, the com-
mittee's first section, Public Rela-
tions is designed to acquaint new
students with SGC functioning,
solicit student opinion when the
need arises and keep the campus
informed as to new SGC develop-
ments.
Second Subcommittee
The second subcommittee, Pub-
licity, will establish a speakers'
bureau to inform the campus on
specific subjects and to collect
viewpoints on them from other
schools in the Big Ten.
Elections, the last subcommittee,
has begun a study of election pro-
cedure hoping to improve the all-
campus elections. They will train
their personnel to run the elec-
tions and to, assume general re-
sponsibility for them.
Organized on March 23, 1955,

the purpose of the Campus Affairs
Committee is to initiate new pro-
jects and to serve the more im-
mediate needs of the student body.
A few of the projects which this
committee is discussing for the
future are pre-registration and the
formation of a Department of Re-
ligion for the Literature, Arts and
Science School. Also under the
jurisdiction of this committee are
pep rallies, faculty evaluation and
the structure of the administrative
wing.
Plans are already in progress for
an activities booklet, a lecture
committee and the expansion of
the athletic departments. The
Campus Affairs Committee will
also run the Student Book Ex-
change and the Bucket Drive.
Third Works with ISA
An important phase of the Hu-
man and International Welfare
Committee is working in coordina-
tion with the International Student
Association in establishing an im-
proved foreign student program.
This program would include
orienting foreign students to Uni-
versity life, aiding them in finding
housing and guiding them in their
registration difficulties. A ques-
tionnaire will be devised to uncover
their interest in American stu-
dents and student activities

HISTORIC DAY-Dr. Thomas Francis, Jr., (left) shows his report on the results of the evalua-
tion of the 1954 polio vaccine field trials to Dr. Jonas A. Salk, who developed the vaccine, minutes
before the world learned for sure that the vaccine was effective. The picture was taken at the
Rackham Building where Dr. Francis revealed the vaccine's success in a closed scientific meeting
April 12.

CRACKPOT SPLENDOR-Every year, on the Saturday of the Homecoming football game, huge,
colorful and otherwise awesome (often clever, too) displays are constructed in front of fraternities,
sororities and dormitories. The theme is always beat the other team, and the style of presentation
is intended to be original. Much hard work and at least one sleepless night goes into every Home-
coming project, even those that don't win a prize.

Caddie Scholar
Finances for E)
An unusual living group on the
University campus is the Evans
Scholars.
There were 35 Evans Scholars
living in the Standish House last
year. They are ex-caddies attend-
ing the University on scholarships
from the Western Golf Association
and the Detroit District Golf Asso-
ciation.
The scholarship program was
begun 25 years ago by famous
amateur golfer "Chick" Evans -
hence the name. "Evans Scholars."
The program was accelerated in
the Detroit area five years ago
under the leadership of the well-
known Michigan amateur golfer
Jim Standish - hence the name
"Standish House."..
Finances for the scholarship are
provided by contributions from
individuals belonging to golf clubs
which are members of the two golf
associations.
Although there are often ex-
cellent golfers among the Evans
Scholars - three are presently on

ships Provide
vans Scholars

arship is not awarded on the basis
of golfing ability.

club of the two golf associations,
must be in the upper one-quarter
of his high school graduating class,
need financial assistance t o

caddied.
University Press
Construction of the new $119,000
University Press Building, to be
located just north of the Student
Publications Building,. is expected
to be completed by the first of the
year.
The building will provide space'
for offices of the University Press
which were formerly located eat
311 Maynard St.

CLEARING THE PATH-Workmen moved the first house from the property designated to be occu-
pied by the new $1,700,000 Student Activities Building during July. Others followed as the Univer-
sity proceded with plans to break ground for construction this September.
