"The possibility of an IBM
machine breakdown was a bit of
a worry," he noted, "but, had this
happened, students would have
been directed to tables where they
could fill out their own cards."
It's a case of, being previously,
committed to handle 900 students

Ward finds that the summer

excellent testing ground for new

Foreign Study
Grants for'5
Off eredt at U'l
Competition 'for 165 scholar-
ships to study in 13 foreign coun-
tries will close Jan. 15,. 1958, the
Institute of International Educa-
tion recently announced.
The scholarships are financed
by foreign governments, univer-
sities, and private organizations
and administered by the IE.
The awards are primarily for
one year beginning in the fall of
1958 and are for study in Austria,
Brazil, Cuba, Denmark, France,
Germany, Iran, Israel, Italy, the
Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland,
and the United Kingdom.
Interested University students
who are United States citizens,
have a bachelor's degree by the
time of departure, are in good
health, have a good academic rec-
ord and a knowledge of the lan-
guage of the country can apply in
Rm. 1020 of the Rackham Gradu-
ate School.
Most of the scholarships do not
cover travel expenses but persons'
applying for Austrian, Danish,
French, German, Italian and
Netherlands awards mlay apply for
a Fulbright travel grant to sup-
plement the'scholarship. Applica-
tions for travel grants must also
be submitted by Jan. 15, 1958.
The majority of scholarships
are open to candidates in lan-
guages, and cultlre, fine and ap-
plied arts, - sciences, social sci-
ences, philosophy, history and
theology. The French program in-
cludes 40 assistantships for young
Americans to teach in 'ench sec-
ondary schools and teacher train-
ing institutions.
Many of the assistants can also
take, courses in nearby universi-

of an office manager's job, Ward
a native of Maine, is a devoted
family-man with two young sons,
the second of which the Wards
adopted the day before Thanks-
An avid carpenter and painter
(the wall-and-ceiling type), Ward
began building their present home
in 1950 and, with a minimum
amount of sub-contracting and
many hours of hard work, the
Ward family moved in last March.
"It's a Five Star Better Homes
and Garden house," he added
with a touch of well-deserved
pride, . . . 1725 square feet!"
Stan Ward finds that he gets
the most satisfaction in his job by
just working with people. Besides
his office staff, he has a crew of
about 125 students which he hires
each semester for registration
work. Ward puts a tremendous
amount of faith in the students
working with him. "As a matter
of fact," Ward said, "my right-
hand man for the past four' se-
mesters has been Larry Richards,
a philosophy major planning to
enter the ministry."
Duties Increased
Since 'ard returned to his
present position as office manager
in July (he held the same position
in June 1951 before serving with
the Air Force), he has noticed a
sizeable increase in his duties.
Whereas before he was concerned
chiefly with registration and edit-
ing of the office manual, now he
finds himself spread over a much
larger area. The biggest difference
is his closer contact with the stu-
When questioned about "rail-
road tickets," Ward replied, "I'm
glad you mentioned them! Yes,
I'm afraid I am responsible for
them to a large degree, at least as
far as editing and ordering them
goes!" At this point it became
evident that Ward was definitely
aware of the student's plight of
writer's cramp. Being a graduate
of the University, he had fallen
victim eight times to the mon-
strous-sized sheet of perforated
cardboard containing, at present,
14 separate coupons with no less
than nine places to fill out your
Ann Arbor address.
"With respect to the railroad
ticket, we are certainly eyeing it
with the intention of reducing it,"
Ward went on, "but you have to
realize that no matter in what
form the various University of-
fices receive the information con-
tained on the cards, each of these
offices.needs that information.
"We're gradually trying to work
the IBM system into registration."
he added, "but the railroad'ticket
is. not one of the most vital con-
cerns at present. Whether or not
we do alter it has a lot to do with
the various offices using it."
"You've got to remember,"
Ward concluded, "the railroad
ticket as it stands now is the re-
sult of much, much sifting and
selecting over the years!"

U Foreign
Students See
U.S. Sights
International students from the
University visited New York, Chi-
cago and Washington, D.C. in the
International Center's Christmas
Vacation trips.
One group 'of thirty students,
under the leadership of Helen Tjo-
dis of the Center, visited the capi-
tal. As the Washington Evening
Star pointed out, the trip gave the
students both the tourist's view
of Washington and a "taste of
home hospitality."
Guests in Washington
While in Washington, the for-
eign students were guests of the
Junior Army Navy Guild Organi-
zation. JANGO members, wives of
military personnel, entertained
them in their homes for typical
American meals.
The touring University students
also visited the W a s h i n g t o n
Monument, the Capitol, the White
House, the Pentagon, and Mount
After spending three days in
Washington, the group moved on
to New York City and, according
to Miss Tjodis, they visited the
United Nations, the Statue of
Liberty, Rockefeller Center and
the Empire State Building.
Attended Opera
The international students at-
tended a Metropolitan Opera pre-
sentation of "Tosca" and a New
York Center Ballet performance
of "The Nutcracker Suite." They
visited the Museum of Natural
History, the Frick Museum and
Metropolitan Museum of Art, the
Hayden Planetarium.
On New Year's Eve the touring
group attended a Martinique Ho-
tel dance, and was on Tines
Square at midnight.
Toured Chicago
The second group, meanwhile,
spent several days in Chicago.
Under the direction of Janice Mil-
ler of the Center staff, they first
took a bus tour of the city.
Among the places visited were
two Housing Authority Projects
the Board of Trade, and a large
department store.
They saw "Around the World in
80 Days," "Cinerama" and a WGN
Polka Party telecast.
The visitors were entertained in
homes in the Chicago suburbs of
Park Ridge, Sycamore, DesPlan-
ins, and Oak Park.e
Syracuse Bans
Rush Letters
SYRACUSE, N.Y. - The Syra-
cuse Interfraternity Council re-
cently adopted a plan to ban pre-
rush letters to incoming freshmen.
This plan also includes an all-
University letter which will be
sent to the new students during
the summer before their arrival
at Syracuse.
By adopting this plan, the IFC
ends the practice of sending mail-
ing lists of new freshmen to the
individual houses, which would in
turn send out their own letters to
these new students.
The all-University letter which
they have adopted will be pre-
pared by a professional advertis-
ing agency, and will described the
whole fraternity system at Syra-
cuse, rather than the individual

vision has been made for two scholar-
ships, each in the amount of $2,000, to
be given to a graduate student inter-
ested in one year's study to England.
The applicant must be a resident of
the State of Illinois. There is no limi-
tation on the #ield which the graduate
student must concentrate in. The pur-
pose of these scholarships is to develop
