Four University students dine
t the annual Union Christmas
party last year. This year's
Three committee chairmen were
named Friday at a meeting in the
Union to discuss possibilities of a
creative writing magazine for un
dergraduates according to Robert
Hough, assistant professor of Eng
lish. The committees formed and
their chairmen are: editorial,
Steve Schultz, chairman; business,
Jane Simmons, manager; and art,
Barbara Millnitz, chairman.
Steve Schultz, editorial chair
man, stated Monday with the
amount of writing done by stu
dents who aren't recognized as
writers he feels the magazine
should be a great success.
"I hope," said Schultz," that
this magazine will not feature cre
ative writing which is restricted
entirely to poetry and short stories.
"Rather we hope to include re
views of current books which will
interest students, criticism of con
troversial works of any age, and
such features as historical essays
which will stimulate creativity not
alone in the English department,
but in every other undergraduate
department as well.
"This should give the magazine
a more universal appeal than it
would have if restricted to some
smaller group. What it means, in
short, is, 'The more the merrier,' "

Students interested in public
affairs and public service careers
who will receive their B.A. in June
have been offered an opportunity
to apply for fellowships to study
at three different universities. The
fellowships grant $1,500 a year
plus college fees. Each fellowship
approximates $1,950 in total value.
Beginning this June, fellows will
serve with a public agency such
as TVA or a department in a city
or state government. In the
39 school session they will take
graduate courses at the Univer
sities of Alabama, Tennessee and
Completion of the 12 months
training entitles fellows to a cer
tificate in public administration.
They can be awarded a masters
degree at either of the three uni
versities upon completing a thesis
and passing examinations.
For eligibility requirements and
other information students should
write the educational director of
the University of Alabama. The

tions is March 10, 1953.
