STUDENT COUNCIL GIVES 14 AWARDS FOR SPRING TERM

New Appeal Will Be Made to Those Who Have Not Paid Pledges in Order To Meet Heavy Demands

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Voting a total of $520 in the form of aids to 14 undergraduates, the Student Council completed the largest assignment of scholarship money in recent years at its regular meeting last night. The sum voted for the present year now totals $2170.

This compares with a total of $1575 voted last year to only 23 recipients, but it was pointed out that depressed business conditions as well as greater publicity about the Council scholarships this year accounted for the increase in the number of aids granted.

Those receiving the awards last night were: Jack D. Andrews '39, Donald Barker '38, Herschel Berman '38, Arthur R. Borden '39, Charles B. Ellis '39, Williams R. Frye '40, Luke M. Gibson '39, Edgar Haff '39, Charles V. Haley '38, John H. Howland '39, James R. O'Leary '40, Timothy J. Reardon '38, Charles S. Reder '38, and Henry H. Urrows '38.

Money For Term Bills

The money voted to these students will be sent to the Treasurer of Harvard College to be applied upon the April term bill, and these awards, except in cases of extreme emergency constitute the final grants of the year as far as the Council is concerned.

Because of the extremely large number of applications, the Council's scholarship committee reported that particular care was given to each application to insure that all factors bearing on the application would receive consideration.

Boy Scouts Given Grant

The Scholarship Committee also announced a grant of $50 to the Cambridge Boy Scouts as part of its regular contributions to local charities.

Further it was pointed out that, in view of the excessive demands that have been made on the Council this year, it was important that the Council's income, represented by the payment of pledges by undergraduates, should be maintained at a high level.

The second appeal, to those who have not yet paid the pledges they made last September, will go in the mails next week, and the Council urged that every effort be made by students to send in their checks as soon as possible in payment of these pledges to the Council office at Phillips Brooks House.
