Carlson of West Falmouth, former electronics technician in the Navy, is an honor graduate of Phillip Exeter Academy. A member of Phi Beta Kappa, he specialized in electronic physics here. He was elected to a war service scholarship from the State of Massachusetts.

Fay, a native of Paris, France, now residing in Cambridge, will be graduated from the College next spring. A lieutenant in the field artillery during the war, he was also selected to represent the State of Massachusetts.

Kluss, a resident of Boston, was granted a war service scholarship from the State of Iowa. Anderson, of Brooklyn, New York, a graduate of Harverford, and Worland, of Aurora, Ilinois, a graduate of Coigate, were also selected for war service scholarships from their respective states.

Also chosen among the ten New England Rhodes scholars in the first scholarship election in seven years, was Charles G. Bolte, Dartmouth '41, founder and present national chairman of the American Veterans Committee. A member of the British Army from 1941 to 1943, Botle lost a leg in the battle of El Alnmein.
