WE HAVE based our evaluation on five qualities we con.
sider necessary for a Council member, including: factual
knowledge; experience in student affairs; handling of present
issues and formulation of new ones; a broad and optimistic
interpretation of the Council's potential, and clarity and vigor
of expression.

Independent Study
Broader opportunities for independent study and research will
be accorded to outstanding undergraduate students beginning next
fall, Prof. Otto Graf, chairman of the literary college Honors
Council, indicated yesterday.
The Honors Council plans to submit requests for funds from
the Undergraduate Science. Education Program of the National
Science foundation to support the new projects in a variety of
disciplines. The mathematics department will get an early jump
.with a request that would cover
the summer of 1962, department
chairman, Prof. George E. Hay said
last night.
Advance Understanding
The NSF program is aimed at
"developing new and expanded
means for able undergraduates to
advance in their understanding of
science and in their ability to em-
ploy investigative procedures."
The government-sponsored plan
i went through an experimental
period last year, Prof. Graf ex-
plained, and is now being extended
and expanded to cover the math-
ematical, physical, medical and
biological sciences.
Opportunities will also be open
in anthropology, sociology, geo-
9 graphy, psychology, economics,
history and philosophy of science
as well as in such interdisciplinary
fields as biochemestry, geophysics,
statistics and meteorology.

student fees due to the tuition
boost last fall-totals going from
$9.4 to $11.3 million, with out-of-

per cent of the tuition fee income.
Almost all the schools and col-
leges differed notably from the

Expenses Go Up
The literary college expenses
went up six per cent, led by in-
creases of more than 100 per cent
in the Near Eastern and{ Far

markedly (some 55 per cent).
The engineering college rose
some 11 per cent, the Medical
School 10. These units have the
second and third largest total bud-
gets in the schools and colleges.
The dentistry school had a rise
of eight per cent, almost equal to
the average.
The education school budget de-
creased some 16 per cent, pri-
marily due to losses in restricted
income from grants and such aid.

The architecture and design col-

only one per cent. Each of them
has a small total budget in com-

and medical school, the two larg-

Rises between one-and-one-half
and five per cent were reported in
the music, natural resources, phar-

work schools.
The two largest rises, 12 and 13
per cent, respectively, were found
