Given More
Twice as many grants have been
given this year to graduate stu-
dents at the University than were
given five years ago, according to
Ralph A. Sawyer, dean of the
Horace H. Rackham School of
Graduate Studies.
The grants have risen from a
total of $275,000 to $770,000.
"Only about 10 per cent of our
students are supported by fellow-
ships, although it is clear that the
best way to rapidly increase the
number of PhD's needed in teach-
ing and research is to provide ad-
ditional fellowship support to
graduate students so that they
may pursue their studies at the
maximum speed without the time
loss incurred by self support,"
Sawyer commented.
University Graduate School stu-
dent grants received in the year
of 1959-60 included 31 Woodrow
Wilson Fellowships, 30 regular
National Science Foundation Fel-
lowships, 37 NSF Co-operative Fel-
lowships, 21 NSF summer grants
and 18 Nuclear Engineering Fel-
lowships from the Atomic Energy

"Gandhara sculpture. is of sig-
nificance because it typifies the
meeting of the great cultures of
the East and West," Prof. Charles
H. Sawyer, director of the art mu-
seum, said.
"The sculptures are taken from
the times of the late Roman civi-
lization to about the fourth cen-
tury and in these terms it is pos-
sible to look back at early Greek
civilization and to anticipate what
was to happen in India and China
centuries later," he said.
The exhibition will open at 2-5
p.m. today in Alumni Memorial
Hall and will run through to
March 13. Benjamin Rowland,
acting curator of oriental art at
Fogg Art Museum, Harvard Uni-
versity at 4 p.m. today in Aud. A,
Angell Hall.
The art museum will be the only

college museum in the world to
house this exhibition, which is on
a tour of the United States under
the auspices of the Smithsonian
In s t i tu t e traveling exhibition
Gandhara is the ancient name
of a region in Northern Pakistan
which became the second holy
city of Buddhism. From .here
Buddhism spread north and east-
ward to Afghanistan, Bactria, the
Tarim Basin, and China.
The term Gandhara is now used
to signify the school of semiclas-
sical sculpture of Pakistan and
Afghanistan in the early centuries
of our era.
The invention of the "Buddha
image" has been termed the
"greatest" gift of Gandhara to
the art of Asia. Most Gandhara
art is Buddhist in nature but
much of it is presented in the
same terms as the concepts of pa-
gan cults.
