  How many times have you seen a similar article in
the ad section of your daily newspaper? Most of us
tend to regard these advertisements somewhat dubi-
ously since no mention is made of interest rates, and
we have a feeling that considerably more than our
signature is required as collateral. What, then, would
we think if we saw an advertisement of this type posted
on our Engineering bulletin boards?
         $ $ $ NEED CASH $ $ $
      for Books, Tuition, and Other Expenses?
   Get up to $800 on your scholastic ability and
               financial need only.

   Repay-by continued proficiency in Engineering.
   Perhaps many Engineers don't realize it, but on
nearly every bulletin board on our Engineering campus
there is an announcement, offering cash for Wisconsin
Engineering students on just those terms. Admittedly

      FELLOWSHIPS AND SCHOLARSHIPS
                   available to
         STUDENTS IN ENGINEERING
  This bulletin offers over forty-five scholarships in the
undergraduate field alone. These scholarships are of
an average value of $400 apiece and are available to
Sophomores through Seniors in every field of Engineer-
ing. Often the company donating the scholarship will
offer summer employment between the student's Junior
and Senior year, although a scholarship appointment
does not imply that an offer of employment will be
made by the company, nor that the student is obilgated
to accept such an employment offer, if made.
  All that is necessary to apply for a scholarship is to
obtain an application blank from any departmental
office, the Dean's office, or the Engineering Library;
fill it out, giving the personal data called for, and sub-
mit on a separate sheet of paper a statement clearly
explaining financial situation and the need for assist-
ance; and then file the blank in the required depart-
mental office before February 15, 1955.
  The following is a list of undergraduate scholarships
available:
  Remember, application must be made before Feb-
ruary 15, 1955.
            Students Eligible
