for all types
of talent, skill
By RAMONA JONES
In her will, dated Nov. 14, 1934, Nellie
Waddell Brenizer left the balance of her
estate to the U niversity for the establishment
of a graduate fellowship in history.
According to the terms of the will,
students receiving the Waddell Memorial
Fellowship, established by Brenizer in
memory of Lee R. Waddell, must choose the
writing of history as a profession.
Also, in awarding the fellowship, special
preference is to be given to particularly
promising undergraduates or to any person
bearing the name Waddell.
The Waddell Fellowship is one of several
graduate awards given annually by the
Graduate Fellowship Office with unusual
terms regarding the recipients.
Concerning the Waddell Fellowship,
Terrv L.. Maddox. assistant for fellowships,
noted, "In the last five years that I've been
here, there have been no Waddells applying
for the fellowship."
Maddox said the Graduate Fellowship
Office offers about 115 fellowships each
year. The money for these awards comes
from donations from alumni, proceeds from
the UNC Student Stores and endowments
such as the $1 1-million gift given to the
University last year by the Joseph Pogue
family. A portion of the Pogue endowment
was given to the graduate school for
Among the more prominent awards given
are' the Kent James Brown Award for a
graduate student in Germanic languages, the
Coker Fellowship for a graduate student in
botany, and the Nicholson Fellowship for a
graduate student in statistics.
"Most fellowship recipients' receive
between $3,000 and $4,000," Maddox said.
Depending on the amount, the awards
finance living allowances or living
allowances plus tuition and fees.
Graduate students may apply for many
awards other than University fellowships,
A copy of the "Annual Register of Grant
Support" is kept in the Graduate Fellowship
"It has a good listing of familiar and
unfamiliar grants," Maddox said. "Some are
so restrictive, though, that you almost have
to be tailor-made to qualify for the awards."
He said that two or three years ago a
student told him about a $1,000 award she
had received from a group similar to the
Daughters of the Confederacy.
"The primary eligibility requirement," he
said, "was to prove you were a direct
descendant of a Confederate soldier."
Maddox said another award is offered by
the American Numismatic Society for post
graduate study of the history of money or
"I don't know exactly what field you
would apply that study to," he said, "unless
maybe it was anthropology or something."
Maddox suggested that students seeking
aid might look for some of these awards
offered by sources outside the University. He
said many local, regional and fraternal
awards are offered by organizations like the
Lions Club, Rotary Club and Eastern Star.
"The fellowships offered through the
University are all given on the basis of
academic achievement," Maddox said. "We
do not look at need at all."
All awards are based on departmental
nomination. All-nominees must have been
admitted officially to the graduate school
before an award offer can be made.
"We're competing with other schools for
good students," Maddox said. "Every year
we make more offers for awards than we
have money for. We may offer as many as 50
percent more awards than we have money.
These are offered, though, on the basis of the
percentage of students we think will accept
The fellowships that are not accepted are
then awarded to other students on the list of
"WHY DO THE HEATHEN RAGE?
Psalms 2:1 and Acts 4:25
"Ye that love the Lord hate evil! ...Take thou away from me
the noise of thy songs; for I will not hear the melody of thy
viols. But let judgment run down as waters, and
righteousness as a mighty stream!" Psalm 7:10 and Amos
5:23 and 24.
One may love the great hymns and music of the Church,
but if one does not "hate evil" it appears God does not ap
preciate the music, and it is unacceptable!
Several years ago a minister of one of the oldest and best
known Churches of the South began his sermon by asking
his congregation if they ever thought of missing heaven after
all, and facing an eternity in the "lake of fire." He said: "I do."
Doubtless he was prepared to "Trust in The Lord with all his
heart, and lean not unto his own understanding."
Alter all, the professions of faith, the preaching, the
teaching, the churchanity, the good will and opinions of
fellow churchmen and good works in the sight of men then to
miss heaven! This is no idle question just to frighten! Did not
Jesus C hrist say In the Sermon on The Mount there would be
many rejected who thought they were prepared? And in
another place we are told that those who "rejected the truth
and had pleasure in unrighteousness" that God Himself
would send them a delusion tht they might believe a lie and
be damned! "Let him that thinketh he standeth, take heed,
lest he fall!" Someone has well said that many professed
Christians take John 3:16: "For God so loved the world, etc."
and use it as a bat to swat and bat and knock out of the way all
other Scriptures in order to justify their 'love of the world, the
flesh and the devil." Meditate a little on Christ's Temptation
found in Matthew 4 and Luke 4 and see if He did not In effect
tell the devil it is tempting God to take one Scriptural Truth to
destroy another Scriptural Truth! "Man shall not live by
bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the
mouth of God." One of the auditors of the above preacher
was much impressed by hearing such a question asked in
such a setting, for so many ministers in our day openly and
boldly reject the teaching of God s Word and Jesus Christ
regarding eternal hell, or else take the perilous position that
"that which is not talked about does not exist," and all this In
spite ol their ordination vows! The late Sam Jones said that
those who throw "hell fire" out ot their creed when they get to
hell will have to adopt a creed in which there is nothing else
but "hell fire."
It is impossible to be a Christian acceptable to God and
Christ without "denying self." He said so time and again, in
the strongest of language. Should we not pray and Search
The Scriptures in order to be fully persuaded in our own
minds as to what is evil and ottensive to God, and seek the
strength of God to "resist the devil" and bear such a witness
that men will know where we stand on every moral and
spiritual matter regarding "The Law and The Testimony."?
