Three undergraduates of the University made a clean sweep of the Cambridge Centennial Prize Essay contest by winning all three prizes in the college class of entries, it was announced this week by the Centennial Committee. Francis H. George '41, of Cambridge, won the first prize of $200; William E. Reeves '46, of Providence, Rhode Island, came in second and received $150; while Alexander D. Stewart '49, also of Cambridge, took the $50 third prize.

Essays, on the subject, "Cambridge, Its History, Its Problems, Its Future," were submitted on June 5 from all colleges and schools in the city. Formal presentation of awards was made on Monday night during the Centennial program at Soldiers Field, but only the 12 winners in the high school class of entries were present. The Centennial Committee reports that the awards have been mailed to the three college winners.

Judges of the contest were Erwin D. Conham, editor in chief of the Christian Science Monitor, and Edward Morton, associate editor of the Atlantic Monthly.
