Wilson Programs To Continue}
Despite Fellowshipv Reduction

1 J-

Although the Woodrow Wilson
Foundation will award only 150
fellowships this year, it will con-
tinue its program of identifying
the top 1,000 best qualified grad-
uating seniors for, financial sup-
port in pursuit 'of graduate stu-
dies, according to' Honors Coun-
cil Director Otto Graf, chairman
of the foundation's regional selec-
tion committee.r
A total of 945 Wilson grants
were awarded last year to gradu-
ate students in the social sciences
and humanities pursuing careers
in college teaching.
"The Foundation has disposit-
ion over less funds to award fel-
lowships this year, but its function
of identifying the most qualified
will continue," Graf explains.
Last month, Wilson Foundation'
President Sir Hugh Taylor an-
nounced that the foundation
would drastically reduce financial
aid to graduate students interest-
ed in college teaching because of
a $4.3 million a year slash in
donations from the Ford founda-
A new $41.5'million Ford Foun-
dation program for "reform" of
doctoral education in 10 graduate
schools including the University's
was announced last April when
the Ford Foundation first told of
its proposed cutbacks in Wilson

Foundatiqn aid. The Ford Foun-
dation which has given $27.5 mil-
lion to the Wilson Foundation in
the last five years has said it
will give only $2.4 million during
the next two years.
Under the reduced Wilson pro-
gram, every active candidate
must apply for fellowships ad-
ministered by the National De-
fense Education Act, National
Science Foundation, and govern-
mental agencies and private foun-
dations, besides seeking directI
financial support from the gradu-
ate school he wishes to attend.
If the candidate is successful in
procuring financial aid he will
be designated an honorary Wilson
Fellow. If he should fail, the
foundation will support the can-
didate for a year of study at the
school of his choice.
"The foundation has asked
deans of graduate schools all over
the country whether a list of the
1,000 would be useful and they
have been assured that such a
roster would be most desirable,"
Graf says.
Graduate school deans will re-
ceive the list of 1,000 designates
by Feb. 1. The recipients of fin-
ancial aid from the Wilson Foun-
dation will be announced on April
According to Graf, the proced-
ure makes good sense. "Virtur-

ally all of the Wilson fellows in
the past have received at least
two fellowships, sometimes as
many as four or five. They have
enjoyed the luxury of choosing
the fellowship which offers the g+
most for their personal circum-
"If they have a Wilson, they
might also have a Marshall or a
Danforth or direct aid from an
institution." explains Graf.
"The 150 figure may be an>
overestimation of the number of
Wilson fellows who won't b'e suc-
cessful in finding financial aid
elsewhere. The fellows are really
very much fought over," he con-r
Graf adds that there is everyj

Three DayStrike
Resolved at OSU
Administration Agrees to Demands
Of 1300 Non-academic Employes
By the Associated Press
COLUMBUS, Ohio-A strike by non-academic employes at Ohio
State University ended yesterday as members of the American Fed-
eration of State, @ounty, and Municipal Employes voted to accept the
latest university contract offer.
The university and the union announced the settlement after a
standing vote of from 500-600 employes. An estimated 1,300 union
members were affected by the walkout which began at midnight last
Striking members of the American Federation of State, County,
and Municipal Employes were seeking a 10 per cent wage boost and
other benefits which the university said it could not afford.
Their strike had been called in defiance of an Ohio state law
which forbids strikes by public employes. The AFSCME has been
organizing at Ohio's other public colleges and universities as well
and union officials say that there_

Seek End To
Peace Rally
Permit Ban.'
Sponsors of a mass anti-war
march on the nation's capital on
Oct. 21 are seeking repeal of a
Washington, D.C. restriction on
parade and rally permits unless
the sponsors renounce a planned
civil disobedience program against
the Pentagon.
The National Mobilization Com-
mittee, representing a. hundred
anti-war and peace groups, reaf-
firmed its decision to include a
sit-in option at the Pentagon.
The committee Monday night
sent a letter to Washington au-
thorities asking for reconsideration
of the ultimatum presented Fri-
day, which also includes a ban on
picketting of the Pentagon even
if the sit-in is renounced.
Prof. Robert Greenblatt of Cor-
nell, national coordinator of the
march said word is expected today
on new negotiations.
The march's sponsors declared
the ultimatum "completely unac-
ceptable" and retained legal coun-
sels to "take steps necessary to
prevent the Johnson Administra-
tion and its representatives from
interfering with the rights of cit-
izens to assemble peacefully in the
nation's capital."
Dr. Benjamin .Spock, a featured
speaker at the rally, has vowed
to speak at the Lincoln Memorial
even if the permits are not issue.
Msgr. Charles Rice of Pittsburgh
vowed to attempt the sit-in if they
could approach the Pentagon.
Denis Sinclair, '69, co-ordinator
of the Ann Arbor mobilization
committee, last night said, "We
are not advocating civil disobe-
dience as a group. We will con-
tinue to sell tickets for transporta-
tion to Washington, but t is up
to the individual to decide to par-

Part of the problem in discuss-
ing the American involvement in
Vietnam, Goldwater said, is that
many people fail to understand
the conflict.
Comparing the war to America's
war against the Indians in the
American West, he said we face
the problem of not knowing the
numbers of the enemy or with
whom to talk peace.

Goldwater said he "hopes the
President will continue to edu-
cate us," and thinks'it is "wrong
that the American people are not
taken into confidence more."
Goldwater is sure that "if Ameri-
cans understand the problem,
whether they agree or not, they
will put the shoulder to the wheel
and get.the job done."
However, the former senator cri-
ticized the Tonkin Resolution of
1964 that gave the President the
power to "engage in anything
from Korea to the South Pole."

Stating that he favors returning
warmaking powers to Congress,
Goldwater "hopes we can contin-
ue to argue* these points" and
when the war is over, he hopes
"we can say the resolution was
unconstitutional or make it our
way of life."

water's lecture.
Fusfeld charged that Goldwater
made comments "high in emotion-
al appeal but low in content.". He
opposed the assumption that' a
"powerful nation, such as the
United States has the right to im-
pose its view of reality on a coun-
try without such power."
Oppose Philosophy
Livermore criticized Goldwater
for referring to the, varied types
of Communism as a monolithic
force. The former senator correct-
ed himself for not pointing out the
difference in the communist na-
tions but restatedhis point that
