Convocation To Hon dergwniversiegra


Princeton President-E etc


eal Here



Each year the day of the Honors Convocation is
justly dedicated to students who have achieved a supe-
rior academic rating.
In Hill Auditorium this morning hundreds will re-
ceive formal congratulations from their University for
as many jobs well done. Some will add the honor to a
growing collection of accolades, others will cherish it as
a precious, brief recognition for years of quiet work.
Thousands more just recognize the ceremony as a
symbol of tribute to their own efforts, for where one is
honored, ten more go unnoticed - reading, typing,
Today, for the fifth consecutive year, The Daily
presents its Honors Supplement as a tribute to both
scholarship and accomplishment in extratcurricular ac-
tivities. While it can never be complete, every effort has
been made to list those who have distinguished them-
selves academically or who have served their University
through campus organizations.
Where space was limited, and complete membership
lists could not be included, the officers of the organiza-
tion appear, instead.
Also mentioned are all those who will receive recog-
nition at the Convocation, as are the members of campus
scholastic and honorary societies.
To these people, and to the ones who serve without
public recognitiorn, we extend our congratulations.

At Annual Honors Convocation
One of America's youngest' outstanding educators will
address the 34th Honors Convocation at 11 a.m. today.
Robert F. Goheen, president-elect of Princeton Univer-

Goheen, 37 years old, one of the youngest presidents in
the history of Princeton, was chosen to speak by the Honors
Convocation committee and Assistant to the President Eric
A. Walter.
First of the annual academic convocations was held in
1924 by President Marion LeRoy Burton. The President felt
then that "in the small world
