success.
The elimination of hot break-
fasts, which was favored in a
residence hall survey, was orig-
inally estimated by the commit-
tee to present the possibility of
a $30 cut per student.
But at last Friday's meeting
of the committee, Lynn Tubbs,
co-ordinator of f o o d services,
cast doubt on that figure.
Tubbs pointed out the fact
that food for the continental
breakfast, which was to be re-
tained, was actually more ex-
pensive than that for the regu-
lar meal since the cost of the
sweet rolls served runs 10 to 12
cents each.
Members of t h e committee
have m a d e other suggestions,
which basically amount to cuts
in services. While some possibil-
ities are yet to be explored, they
do n o t amount to significant
cuts.
The committee is backed into
a corner, both by finances and
time.
The t w o real options which
appear to be open are:
A substantial r a t e increase,
in excess of $100 or a lesser in-
crease along with cutbacks in
the level of services.
Whatever the increase, it is
certain to exceed the 4 per cent
rise of the past two years. The
question of exactly how much
will be worked out within the
next few days, perhaps at this
afternoon's meeting of the rate
committee.
In speaking of the food situa-
tion, Salowitz s a i d, "We got
burned." Now it appears to be
the residents' turn.

Prof. Richard D. Mann of the
psychology department has won a,
national $10,000 award for out-
standing teaching.
The prize is the E. Harris Har-
bison Award, given each year
since 1963 by the Danforth Foun-
dation of St. Louis. It was pre-
sented to Mann at a weekend'
conference at the University of
Notre Dame. Only nine otherI
American professors received sim-
ilar awards.
Mann, a popular professor, has
been coordinator of the City
Course, an interdepartmental pro-
gram in community studies. He
also has coordinated the basic
course in psychology as a social
science, one of the University's
largest courses.
P r o j e c t Outreach, through
which freshmen and sophomores
can study psychology in action as
well as textbooks, is also under
Mann's direction.

The largest single element of
the new program will be graduate
training for persons planning
careers in maintaining and en-
hancing environmental quality.
It is expected that perhaps 10
doctoral candidates will be ad-
nitted next fall in environmental
studies, with costs to be paid by
the Rockefeller grant. These stu-
dents will be maintained in school
for three years by the grant, and
others will be admitted in 1971
and '72.
In addition, the grant will spon-
sor several one-year fellowships
for students and researchers who
have already earned doctoral de-
grees, but wish to continue with
?nvironmental studies.
The grant will also make it pos-
sible to hire several additional fac-
ulty members who will specialize
in various areas of environmental
science. In addition, it will pro-
vide for some equipment pur-
chases and administrative costs.
The administrative structure of
the new program has not been
definitely established.
