The manner of selecting mem
bers of the society has been chang
ed this year from the system used
in previous years. The system now
in effect provides that the top 8%
of the seniors in each school and
the top 4% of the juniors in each
school become members in the
society if they have no F’s. The
percentage requirements are based
on the number of grade points.
Heretofore members in the Scholar
ship Honor Society have been made
up of the top 75 juniors and sen
iors in each class, but the new sys
tem makes the group more select
than in the past.
The Scholarship Honor Society,
which was founded to give students
recognition for outstanding schol
arship, meets every second and
fourth Thursday nights. Officers
of the organization, besides Guy,
include D. B. Varner, vice-presi
dent, and Carl Schnieder, secretary-

serted that recent; sports staff up

“we want most of all that foot
ball be a game for students. I
want to keep the game on a truly
amateur basis here.”
However, simon-pure football is
not receiving the support of all
students, for at many colleges un
dergraduates have begun move
ments to subsidize players so that
losing streaks may be stopped. At
the University of Buffalo, the stu
dent newspaper asked the college
to give ten tuition scholarships a
year to men who would be the
nucleus for winning grid teams.
Most drastic move in the direc
tion of non-subsidization of play
ers in any form was made by a
conference of 30 New England col
leges. The code adopted at this
conference prohibits coaches from
contacting future players and from
speaking at high school meetings,

V V when Cecil smokes, speed’s the last thing he wants
in his cigarette. Because cigarettes that burn fast can’t
