The candidates were selected for their literary and scholastic abilities, dualities of manhood, exhibition of moral force of char acter and leadership and physical Vigor. According the "will of the late Cecil J. Rhodes, the scholarships were to have a basic -value of 400 pounds or $2,000. This sum is presently supplemented by a special allowance of $500 per year, subject to revision by the trustees. The district committee will meet Saturday.

The contest originatd by the All University Fund was created recently to give men a chance to pain publicity, said -Jo Lisher, di rector. Purposes of the contest, ac cording to AUF officials are: "To enable men students on campus who would have no chance in a beauty contest, to win at least a title like UMOC. "To provide the various men's houses an opportunity to get some publicity through their il lustrious representatives. "To afford every student a iplendid opportunity to practice getting out the vote' in Novem ber even though he or she is not 21." Each house must submit its candidate's name to Jackie Hoss, 1545 S street. Voting for the UMOC will be held Nov. 1-21. "Votes will cost one nickle. Students who cast votes will -wrap them about the tiickle. The proceeds thus earned will be added to the AUF fund "which aids -Community Chest, TW and YMCA, CARE, WSSF, and the Crusade for Freedom, Library Starts Display About UNi In conjunction -with United Nations "week, an exhibit of ITN publications has been arranged in the Social Studies reading room of Love memorial library.

The Oak Ridge laboratory is run by the Union Carbide Chemical corporation and the Los Alamos project by the University of Cali fornia. Big: Business Atomic energy, Trapnell said, is a bigger business than is com monly realized. The actual in vestment in physical plan facili ties fs more than $2 billion, and the total real estate area the commission owns or leases is greater in size than Delaware. For many of the developments in atomic energy, he said, the commission draws on universi ties and other research institu tions. Another responsibility of the commission is providing for the training of more and more tech nicians. Trapnell pointed out that there is still a serious short age of leaders in the field. To help this shortage, the coopera tion of universities in the na tional laboratories is essential, he added. The University is one of the institutions taking part in the Argonne project. Labs Specialise The Argonne laboratory con centrates on development of weapons and productional pro cesses, Trapnell said. Weapons and materials are produced at Los Alamos. The Oak Ridge and Hanford plants manufacture fis sionable materials U 235 at Oak Ridge and plutonium at Han ford. Trapnell spoke tf the ini'or-. motion services of the AEC. "Not nearly -everything about atomic energy is secret," he said. He urged the newspaper -editors to take advantage of the material available on the subject. Home Ec Club Will Sponsor Richards Event The annual Ellen H. Richards dinner will be held Thursday, j Oct. 26, in the Union ballroom at 6:30 p. m.

Mrs. Snyder graduated from the University, did undergrad uate work at the University of Wisconsin, and received her mas ters degree at Iowa State college where she taught before entering the business field. Her husband is Dr. Lloyd B. Snyder, professor of rural economics at Ae college. Chairman for the dinner is Marcia Adams, assisted by An nette Carnahan.

The present status of the UCLA Daily Bruin is a testimonial to their effectiveness." ""It veers from a position far left to approximate center and back again, but whether it ever reflects student opinion is de batable," Worden reports. He also mentions that the Bruin em ployed an avowed communist, Helen Edelwan, as a political writer in the spring of 1950. The Daily California of Berkely fires back, "Worden does not ac cuse the Bruin of being run by Communists or following the party line directly; -he only implies it." Published by the UCLA Asso ciated Students, the Bruin is staffed with volunteers. Worden charges that the Bruin can be controlled by any group able to send along enough volunteer re porters and keep them working after others have quit." Aimed at USC The Daily Californian writer apparently believes the Worden article is aimed at the USC cam pus as well as UCLA. Israel cjuotes the Worden article say ing, "The pattern is the same at UCLA, Berkeley and many other universities." Worden sums up his opinions on communist infiltration with, "To infiltrate a university is simple. All you nee-i is a few loyal workers willing to sweat for the revolution; a lot of dupes who will shout up and down academic halls for causes with out bothering to find who thought them up; a few actual friction points such as housing or fra ternities or racial -discrimination; a weak point or two, like a floundering newspaper ..." "You can use these methods and have a wonderful time an noy deans, wreck the sleep of administrators and get yourselves scareheads in newspapers," Worden tells campus reds. Honor Svstem In Force At Knox A new honor system to be en forced by a student honor board i will go into effect at Knox col- lege at Galesburg, HI., this se mester. This system will place the main responsibility for cheating and resultant discipli nary measures in the hands of the student body. The honor board -constitution, drawn up by the student coun cil, provides that the student board will hear all honor cases and recommend disciplinary measures. The new system will be ex plained to all new students -during freshman orientation week of each year. Each student will then sign a card certifying that he understands the system. "Knox college president Sharvy G. Umbeck believes that the new honor system "can become one of the most significant student con tributions to the college in many decades." 0 fr'-, fsk f -s til x i i- :? v f--Cr--v. g.

But a Uni"ersity extension plant pathologist said he doubts there will be appreciable losses in stands because of the leaf rust. Plant Pathologist John L. Weihfng said the biggest loss probably will be caused by the fall rust knocking out much fall pasture. Weihing said, however, that if the rust becomes severe enough to kill most or all of the leaves, it could weaken the plants suf ficiently to cause some winter killing. The plant pathologist said a spring rust -epidemic never has originated from a fall outbreak. If "leaf rust becomes severe next spring, he said, it probably will originate from spores blown in from anoher territory. The fall malady is concentrated mostly in western Nebraska. t , IBM Machine Scores Tests Automatically Six weeks tests are over, tem porarily, and if you were in structed to we one of those special answer sheets that have five vertical lines for each -question to be answered and marked the correct space 'with a soft lead pencil-mark, your test was scored by the International Test Scoring machine. The IBM scored tests are in fallible. The principle of the ma chine is the fact that a soft-lead pencil mark is electrically con diH'tive. The key sheet corresponds to the answer sheet but there is a perforated hole for each correct answer. The Tcey sheet and answer sheet are separated by 750 small, metal -pins which correspond to the spaces that may be filled in for answers. There is a contact point on " 't t- and covered by the lead when you answer the question. The pins that go through the holes on the key sheet carry the right answer circuit and those that do not go through the holes carry the wrong answer circuit. When it is covered the circuit is completed. WTien the pins touch the con tact point on the answer sheet and it also goes through the per forated key sheet, it Is recorded as one of the right answers. If the pin that does not go through the score sheet, it is recorded as one of the wrong answers. The speed of the machine is limited only by the speed of the operator.

Membership Drive Begun By Unions A membership drive for Ag and City Union committee work ers was started Monday by the public relations committee. The Ag Union still has open ings for both men and women students on. the Union activities committee, according to Hollis Eggers, Ag union activities di rector. Male students are needed for the city campus Union activi ties pool. Anyone interested in working on Ag Union committees is urged to sign for membership in one of the four committees thf s week. Committees will be closed to new members after Friday. Ag Union differs from the city Union in that whose who are in terested may become members of committees directly. Students do not go through the year's train ing in an activities pool. This ar rangement is provided srnoe there are fewer students to work on committees at Ag. Four Af Groups Since there are only four com mittees, members from all are frequently called upon to help arrange for the larger affairs, such as the open house in the fall and the Skylight Terrace ball in the spring. The four committees are: Pub lic relations, which is in charge of all publicity for the Ag Union and takes care of the magazines which are in the lounge: hobbies and handicraft, in charge of eraftshop; -dance, which arranges hour dances and dancing lessons; and general entertainment, whose function is to provide the campus quarterback movies. Visits Houses The public relations committee visited the organized houses and dorms Monday evening to solicit workers for the Union activities pool. itu dents who sign up tor work will be placed in the committee files. During the school year, each worker's name will be rotated to provide an opportunity for a stu dent to work on all of the Union committees and become ac quainted with each. Next year me; j -who wiuk m K pool will be eligible for member ship in one of the committees. ! The various committees to work ! on are: Recreation, special activi ties public relations, convocations and hospitality, dance, general entertainment, music house and office and budgets, -evalution and orientation.
