total cost for tuition, room and
board at Harvard $2,360.
Harvard is the second school in
the East to recently plan for pay
hikes for its faculty. Yale an-
nounced April 15 that across-the-
board salary increases for all fac-
ulty will go into effect in 1961
along with a boost in both under-
graduate and graduate tuition.
The salary hikes give instructors
equal pay at both schools, but as-

these two groups exceeded the 75

the new insurance effective. Two
other groups, faculty members
with the rank of instructor and
staff members in the $7,500 to
$9,999 annual category, did not
favor the plan in sufficient num-
bers, Lee reported.
As a result, members in these
groups will continue with Blue

Senate members and other staff
members eligible for major medi-

not already signed an application

her rescuer, while her father plans
her marriage to a wealthy old
man. A servant who has been pun-

Prof. Marc Denkinger, who will
play Harpagon, the miser, said

of the money chest while the son
