To Michigan Residents
Sen. Garland Lane (D-Flint) yesterday introduced a bill designed:
to limit state funds for out-of-state and foreign scholarship awards.
The bill, applying solely to Michigan Institute of Mining and
Technology at Houghton, was accompanied by a slap at other state
schools for using appropriations monies for similar scholarships.
"I hate to think that we should go out of the state and offer
tuition:free scholarships to pack these schools," he said, referring to
the other Michigan institutions which provide similar scholarships.

F orCorps.
WASHINGTON (') -- A four-
page application form stressing
manual and intellectual skills,
with special emphasis on lan-
guages, was made public yester-
day by the peace corps.
The corps plans to start send-
ing the first of its pilot group of
500 volunteers to underdeveloped
countries by Christmas.
Results obtained by these pio-
neers will determine the future
course of the program. If suc-
cessful and if Congress approves,
the corps ultimately may have as
many as 20,000 Americans living
and working for two-year periods
with the people of other nations.
The forms next will be sent to
presidents of about 2,000 colleges
and universities, to the 50 state
directors of the agricultural ex-
tension services and to civic clubs,
business organizations, labor un-
ions and other interested groups.
The initial mailings are ex-
pected to total about 200,000 and
the corps director, Sargert Shriv-
er, said:
"Obviously, we do not expect to
receive 200,000 replies. But, thisI
distribution is necessary so that
no one who wants to volunteer
is deprived of his chance because
of excessive difficulty in obtaining
a questionnaire.".

, gest source of appropriations-sup-,
+ported out-of-state scholarships,
with a total of $36,295.
Michigan Tech was second ,ith
$29,200. Michigan State Univer-
sity is third with $22,479, while
Ferris Institute at Grand Rapids
and Northern Michigan College at
Marquette are the only two state-
supported schools not offering
such help.
The Flint Democrat advanced
his opinions during the discus-
sion of a bill which would remove
the authorization of the Michigan'
Tech Board of Control to grant
one free scholarship for each state,
each Canadian province, each
Latin American country and all
territorial possessions of the
United States.
The 76 year - old statute has
been particularly useful to Tech in
recruiting Canadian hockey play-
ers, Lane said. Of the 74 athletic
scholarships offered by the school,
31 are held by foreign students.
This argument could not be used
against the University with regard
to its scholarship program, Vice-
President and Dean of Faculties
Marvin L. Niehuss explained, be-
cause all athletic tenders are ad-
ministered through the athletic
department, which is financially
Niehuss said he could think of
no scholarships specifically de-
signed for out-of-state students
that are supported by appropria-
tions monies. Most of the scholar-
ship money administered by the
University 'for out-of-state stu-
dents comes from grants by area
alumni clubs, he explained.
