$2500 MAXIMUM:
Extend NDEA Loan Eligibility

By MERLE JACOB
Graduate students are now elig--
ible for federalloans up to $2500
a year as a result of the 1964
amendments to Title II of the
National Defense Education Act,
Director of Financial Aids Walter
Rea announced yesterday.
Graduate students in the med-
ical, dental or nursing schools are
ineligible for these funds as they
are covered by the Health Profes-
sions Educational Assistance Act

of 1964, Rea explained.
The 1964 amendments to the
NDEA allow graduate students to
borrow up to $2500 for one aca-
demic year. The total amount of
loans that a student may receive,
including those made while an
undergraduate, may not exceed
$10,000.
Up to $1000
Rea added that undergraduates
can still only borrow up to $1000
a year, with a total maximum of
$5000.

The second change in the act
makes students "carrying at least
one-half the normal full-time
academic workload as determined
by the institution" eligible for
the funds.
The amendments also authorize
a partial loan cancellation for
borrowers who teach full-time at
an institution of higher educa-
tion. Rea said that previously on'y
students who taught full-time in
elementary and secondary schools
were given the loan cancellation
of 10 per cent for eari year of
teaching, with a maximum of five
years.

THE PROPOSED FULLER-GEDDES ROAD penetrator-route is designed to ease Ann Arbor's traf-
fic problems by providing a new parkway tQ the city's most congested areas. There will be a six-lane
highway on Fuller Road between Huron Rd. and North Campus Blvd., while the remaining roads will
be four lanes or less. In this way, the road's promoters said, the traffic demand will be met by
minimum-dimension facilities.

-The four University students

their hunger strike, will spend as
many as 30 days. awaiting their
hearing, according to their attor-
ney.
The four girls charged with
"DSO" left for Alabama without
filling out the proper sign-out
forms.
(One girl did fill one out; for
destination, telephone number and
expected return, she just wrote
"Alabama." She was not charged.)
Mary Thatcher, '67, chairman
of the Blagdon judiciary, said she
doubted whether the girls would
receive any punishment beyond
the automatic two days social pro-
bation, because the charge was a
"technicality" in comparison to
their cause.
But some administrators, in-
cluding some housemothers, felt
the girls were "irresponsible" and
that the case should he handled
without regard to the reason that
they went.
Last Sunday, the returned
marchers met to plan continuing
efforts to change voter registra-
tion practices in Alabama. They
sent a delegation to the home of
President Hatcher to ask a hear-
ing for later in the week. How-
ever, the delegation reported that
President Hatcher was "courteous,
but evasive."
The group has now made a
tentative appointment for tomor-
row afternoon, President Hatcher
told The Daily. The returned
demonstrators will probably ask
him to release a statement agree-
ing with the aims of the demon-
strations and asking leniency for
student protestors.
The students will also present
the idea of a University boycott of
Hammerhill - Bond Paper Co.,
which plans a plant in Selma.
President Hatcher said he hoped
that "satisfactory arrangements
can be made so that students who
went to Alabama can catch up on
their academics."
He said that nearly everyone
respected the demonstrators for
their courage. Asked about the
difference between the students'
skipping classes and the teachers'
skipping, as in the proposed fac-
ulty walkout, President Hatcher
said that the students did not
have an academic contract in the
same way that teachers did.
From Alabama, Attorney Char-

U Teach-In
Continues T o
Gain Support
By ADRIA E. SCHWARTZ
The announced plans for the
faculty teach-in, replacing the
previously proposed work-mora-
torium, have continued to gain
support on both a nationwide and
administrational level.
Justice Paul Adams of the state
Supreme Court reported yester-
day that he will attend the teach-
in. Adams, a former University
Regent and state attorney gen-
eral said of the teach-in, "I be-
lieve these professors are doing
a vital service to their country
in promoting debate on the ques-
tion of U.S. policy in Viet Nam."
In a telegram to The Daily,
members of the Yale faculty sent
word of their support of the Uni-
versity faculty "in protesting es-
calation of the Viet Nam conflict
and in urging negotiation to re-
duce the danger of world war."
Donate Auditoriums
The administration is donat-
ing the use of Angell Auditoriums
A, B, C and D for the seminars
to be held Wednesday evening. Di-
rector of Student Activities and
Organizations John Bingley has
announced that female students,
participating in the teach-in, have
been granted all-night "pers" on
the condition that they inform
their respective housemothers.
The increased faculty support
of the movement has been at-
tributed to the change in tac-
tics of the Faculty Committee To
Stop the War in Viet Nam. Prof.
Kenneth Boulding of the econom-
ics department, who was not in
favor of the original work-mora-
torium, will now be a featured
speaker at the midnight protest.
He felt that the proposed mor-
atorium "would divert attention
from the object of the protest to
the method."
Lost Prestige?
When asked if the committee
had lost prestige by their change
of plans, Boulding replied, "their
willingness to lose face is a great
virtue and shows great strength
It's precisely what we're asking
the U.S. to do."
It was decided that the oo-
sition would not be represented
officially at the protest.
Prof. William Gamson of the
sociology department, spokesman
of the committee, felt that all
sides should be defended but "de-
