Scholarship Established
For Journalism Students

Acceptance of the gift was an-
nounced yesterday by the Regents
of the University.
Fund trustee Chesser M. Camp-
bell, president of the Chicago
Tribune, for which Bennett work-
ed, made an original contribution
of $4,000, to be supplemented in
future years, for use in "grants or'
loans to deserving undergraduate
or graduate, students in journalism
who possess superior ability."
Journalism department faculty
members will choose recipients of
the scholarship, which will be
divided to benefit as many worthy
students as possible.
Bennett attended the University.
from 1889 to 1892, and received an
honorary Bachelor of Arts degree
in 1909. He became interested in
literature while enrolled here, ac-
cording to the Tribune, and left"
school "to publicize a group of
Shakespearean players."
Joining the staff of the Chicago
newspaper in 1914, Bennett served
as cprrespondent in London. "His
first foreign story was an unfor-
getable picture of the reaction of
Englishmen to the declaration of
war," according to the Tribune.
Prof. Wesley H. Maurer, chair-
man of the journalism depart-
ment, expressed the pleasure of
the department at receiving the
"This is the 10th special schol-
arship fund that has come to the
Department of Journalism in re-
cent years," he explained, "and
the resources will be used to assist
superior or above average students
intending to enter the newspaper

punishments seemed to fall down.
Men 'Shocked'
The third phase considered the
problems of apathy on behalf of
the prisoners and the cruelty of
the Americans to each other.
Food, medical treatment, and gen-
eral facilities were very bad, ac-
cording to Prof. French.
Kinkead, referring to his article,
said that the men were shocked
when they saw the deplorable con-
ditions. The morale breakdown
contributed much to the failure
of the American officers to control
the group. The prisoners devel-
oped an 'I don't care what hap-
pens next' attitude, he said.
Although the food contained the
basic body requirements, the
soldiers would not eat it because
they were not used to foreign
cooking. Some mild coercion on

the part of the officers might have
helped, Prof. Newcomb said.
The fourth stage dealt with the
actual placement in the prison
camps. The poorest attitudes of
the prisoners showed themselves
Because the officers were iso-
lated from the enlisted men, the
men felt depressed and abandoned,
thus developing beliefs which
could be swayed away from the
American point of view, Prof.
Walker said.
jAfter this is accomplished, there
is more isolation coupled with
threats and also rewards for in-

Kinkead said that had our men
been trained properly, the situa.
tion might not have existed in the
prison camps. He also said.that
almost no soldier was free of some
