nbitious Young Authors Have Chance For Hopwood Awards


Prizes Totaling
Near 10,000 Are
Four Major Writing Fields
Icluded In Contest; Are
Major, Minor Divisions
For the best work done by students
in crcative writing, the University an-
nually awards prizes totaling around
$10,000. This money was provided
by the late Avery Hopwood, a grad-
uate of the University, and the con-
test is known as the "l-pwood Con'
According to Mr. Hopwood's will
one fifth of his cotate was set aside
for the purpose sketched in the above
Four major fields of writing are in-
cluded in the Hopwood Contest, name-
ly, poetry, drama, fiction, and essay
Prizes are distributed in each of these
divisions while the contest itself cm-
braces two divisions.
The former, known as the majo
awards are open only to graduate
students and seniors and carry the
largesta ashdvalue. The latter, or
minor awards, are open 'to all quali-
fied undergraduate students. Qual-
ifications include registration in the
English composition course or a
course in the journalism department.
In addition to the main awards,
the Hopwood Committee, which ad-
ministers the bequest, has in recent
years established a special awards
countest for freshmen. The freshman
division is patterned along the same
lines as its prototype, the main con-
test, and carries cash awards of $50,
$3,and $20 for first, second, and
third, respectively in each of the four
fields of writing.
This year's contest will be the sixth
since the original competition in 1930-
31. - The freshman division was
founded the following year and takes
place earlier in the year than the
general contest of major and minor
awards. The latter holds its dead-
line for manuscripts some date in
April, as yet not set.

Aged Universitv Conventions Call For
Certain Do's And Don'ts For Freshmen

Michigan is no University com-
posed of hide-bound, snobbish super-
collegiate undergraduates, yet down
through the years the University has
accrued a great many traditions and
conventions-some enforced and oth-
ers unenforced - but all of which
undergraduates in the majority fol-
low closely.
Here are a number of "do's" and
"don'ts" for entering students, all of
which have been definitely estab-
lished in the culture pattern of Uni-
versity life:
Don't smoke while strolling about
the campus. There is absolutely no
objection to a girl smoking here and
there is no University law to prevent
a girl from smoking where she so
chooses, but the practice on the cam-
pus is generally frowned upon.
Don't wear an excessive amount of
jewelry about the campus and dress
conservatively for classes. The trend
among women here is toward sport
clothes for campus wear.
Don't miss Dean of Students Joseph
A. Bursley's annual tea party for en-
tering students. Its lots of fun. In-
cidentally the Dean is commonly
called ''Uncle Joe" by students, with-
out his hearing range, however.
Don't try to go into the front door

of the Union. There is not only a
rule against it, it is also one of the
University's favorite conventions.
Don't call a fraternity a "frat."
The use of that word is the world's
worst 'faux pas' as far as fraternity
men are concernecd.
Don't smoke a pipe on the campus
if you are a freshman. No law, you
understand, but one of those unwrit-
ten customs.
Don't listen to self-appointed stu-
dent advisers. Your faculty instruc-
tor, nine times out of ten, is the
correct source for any information
about the University.
Tip your hat when you meet the
President of the University.
Do not cross the campus lawns.
Trail blazing is definitely not in vogue
Don't wear high school emblems.
The Yellow and Blue, Michigan's
alma mater song, is always sung with
bead bared.
Don't call *a professor an instructe.:
or vice versa. However, if you are
to make the error, by all means favor
the vice versa.
Participate in all class games and
During the rushing period alwaysG

call a fraternity when you are unable
or do not wish to keep an engage-
ment. Just because you might not
want to "take" that house there is
no reason to offend people.
Don't bolt classes with the thought
that you can make it up later. It is
a vitual impossibility.
Don't try to. act like a senior be-
cause everybody will then know you
are a freshman. Only seniors act
like freshmen.
Be yourself, if your ordinary "your-.
self" is yourself.
WILKES-BARRE, Pa., Aug. 14.-
(P)--Oliver Deiter's mother came run-
ning to take his part when he quar-
reled with two young men. The two
young men were take to the hospital,
bruised and battered. Oliver, 71, and
his mother, 100 years old, were held
for a police court hearing.
The University of Michigan boasts
the honor of having been the loca-
tion of the first fraternity house to
be built in America, in 1846.

Collections Of Zoology
Specimens Acqired By
Tvcry, ancient coins, pottery, mol-
lu-ks, old violins -you can find any
of all of these and many more in the
bioad collections of the University's
many museums.
The results of years of work by
cxholars in fields from zoology to
music has found graphic expression
in all these museums. In geology,
botany, chemistry, mineralogy, zo-
ology, anthropology, archaeology, in-
dustrial arts, fine arts, anatomy, mu-
sical instruments, pathology, and ma-
teria medica Michigan's collections
are among the most prized.
In the Museum of Zoology there
is a large series of exhibits of mam-
mals, birds, reptiles, amphibians,
fishes, mollusks, insects, and crusta-
ceans. University expeditions to all
parts of this country and to South
America, Central America, the West
Indies, and the Old World have all
contributed their share.
The most recent of these expedi-
tions, headed by Dr. Carl Hubbs, cur-
ator of the fish division, was made
into the little explored regions of
Guatemala last spring. Gone more
than three months, Dr. Hubbs and
his associates returned with the most
valuable specimens and scientific
Zodlogical Specimens Integral
Zoological speciments of Michigan's
animal life form an integral part of
this museum's collection.
The material of the Museum of An-
thropology, gathered from many parts
of the world, is divided into five col-
lections to facilitate study.
Field work and gifts constantly
augment the Great Lake collections
which contain both ethnological ob-
jects of this region, and a large series
of stone implements, pottery, and
other- archaeological material.
Among the richest of all are the
Oriental Collections of this museum.
The Beal-Steere Expedition's mater-
ial gathered in China, Formosa, and
the Philippines; a series of South
Sea Island weapons presented by the
Smithsonian Institute; exhibits show-
ing Chinese skill in working with silk,
cotton, ivory, porcelain, wood, and
glass -- presented by the Chinese gov-
ernment in 1885; some 1,200 objects
collected by Mr. and Mrs. Frederick

W. Stevens during their sojourn in
Peking; and a group of intrusive
Asiatic ceramic specimens from burial
caves and forgotten graves obtained'
by the Philippine Expedition of 1922-
25 all do their share in making this
collection a truly fascinating one for
layman as well as scholar.
Attention To Apparel
The Ethnological Collections devote
main attention to wearing apparel,
implements of war and the chase,
and household utensils of the South
American, North American and Alas-
kan Indians, while the Archaeological
Collection is composed largely of pot-
Skeletal material gathered in the
Grtat Lakes region and osteological
specimens obtained by the Philippine
Expedition form the backbone of the

Somatological Collections, the fifth
of the five collections comprising the
Museum of Archaeology.
Arranged in the spacious University
Museums Building, to indicate the
biologic and stratigraphic relations
of the fossils and some of the import-
ant series in evolution, the 14,000
items of the Paleontological Collec-
tions place enough material in the
possession of the Paleontological Mu-
seum to enable 50 per cent to be added
when the collection has been fully
worked up.
Minerals, gems and gem mauerials,
marbles and granites are all included
in the large and unusual displays of
the department of Mineralogy and
Patrography in the Natural Science
