TWENTY-FOUR RESEARCH fellowships totaling $57,039
have been awarded to University faculty members for the summer
of 1967.
Presented from research funds of the Rackhain School of
Graduate Studies, the fellowships cover research in five areas-
biological sciences, physical sciences, languages and literature,
social sciences, and fine arts. Projects will range from the com-
pilation of a critical biography of George Orwell to a study of
morphogenetic substances in crustacea:
Two of the fellowships will cover projects in the physical
sciences, one dealing with a study of reflexes and the other with
the use of lasers. The two fellowships in the biological sciences
will be fore research on crustacea and the role of iron protein
in oxidative phosphorylation.
The 10 projects in languages and literature will include re-
search on Orwell, Shakespeare, Petrarch, Wallace Stevens, Ger-
man author, Georg Kaiser, Russian novelist Saltykov-Shchedrin,
and Samuel Taylor Coleridge.
Eight projects in social sciences will deal with such areas as
the 1936-37 General Motors strike, family structure, the seces-
sion crisis in the South, and forces affecting quit rates in
American manufacturing.
The two fine arts projects will deal with research in 1850-
1900 concert life and the recorders in the Stearns Collection of
musical instruments.

The literary college faculty at

its ban on sit-ins and its submis-

last summer.
In a formal resolution over-

The faculty further charged the
administration with "less respon-

was sent to University President
SHarlanHatcher and the Regents.
