ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN, FRIDAY, MAY 9, 1958
Superior academic achievement, sometimes passes
unrewarded in the large college community.
To compensate for this, the University will offer
their formal congratulations today to the hundreds of
students who have excelled in scholarship during the
The annual Honors Convocation at Hill Auditorium

have maintained the high academic tradition that. is
the University of Michigan.

college career of scholarship and service. For others, it
will be the only recognition of many long hours of con-
Today, for the sixth consecutive year, The Daily
presents its Honors Edition n recognition of both excel-
lence in scholarship and extra-curricular activities. Ev-
ery effort has been made to include the names of those
who have distinguished themselves at the University

In many cases, however, space limitations, have
made it impossible to include members of all the many
campus organizations., In these cases, only the officers
of the organizations have beenincluded.
We the staff of The Micigan Daily, extend our sin-
cere congratulations for a job well done and an equally
sincere wish for even higher' attainments in the coming

'past year are Maynard Goldman,
'59, administrative vice-president;
and Scott Chrysler, treasurer.
The Council concerned itself a
great deal with the area of aca-
demic affairs. Committees worked
on an honors program for out-
standing students, studied and
then abandoned plans for an hon-
or system of proctored exams,
and is currently exploring the
possibility of a detailed course de-
scription booklet for underclass-
men and the studyof a more pre-
cise grading system.
Calendaring of the academic
year has been studied by a com-
mittee made up of council mem-
bers and members of the facul-
ty and administration.
This committee has made its
preliminary report which includes
possible adoption of a three se-
mester system, one week examina-
tion periods; and an advance reg-
istration program. Chrysler served
on the committee making the re-
Studies Exchange Program
Although doing a great deal of
,investigating on foreign student
exchange programs, the Council
failed to substitute a..new pro-
gram for the Free University of
Berlin exchange which it dropped
during the year.
SGC ordered a change in the
selection of the J-Hop Central
Committee from the traditional
spring election to interviewing
and selection by a committee.
With the general concern over
increased enrollments in institu-
tions of higher learning, SGC is
cooperating with the administra-
tion in a study of this problem.
The health insurance program
was set up in the University with
the aid of the Council. Under this
program individual students are
able to obtain insurance protec-
tion at a nominal cost.
Another project earlier this
year was the coordination and co-
sponsorship of International
Week, which brought to campus
speakers Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt
and Carl Sandburg.
