The effort to select Miss Co-ed was sponsored by the YWCA as a part of its contribution towards securing funds with which to construct a "Y" hut on the campus of the college in the memory of its students, who as members of the armed forces are giving their all in the defense of God, justice and humanity. "Miss Co-Ed" Campaign Successful Event The campaign for the selection of "Miss Co-Ed" was sponsored by the Y. W. C. A. on January 27. The funds raised by selling votes went directly into the 'Y Hut Fund.' Some of the young ladies were supported by an organization while others were not. The following were contestants: Phyllis Holland of Birmingham, Ala, sponsored by the "Bama" Collegians and the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity; Eva Bluford of Philadelphia, Pa., sponsored by the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority; Jeanette Bass of Spartanburg, S.

The past year has brought new laurels to Miss Anderson's serene brow. In June, Smith College conferred on her an honorary Doctorate of Music to add to those she already holds from Temple and Howard Univer- versities. Earlier in the concert year, the winner of the $10,000 Bok Award and the Spingarn Medal was presented by the Republic of Liberia with its highest honor, the Order of African Redemption.
