usefulness. "We (the Office of Financial Aid) are
now able to expend the monies without putting
out publications to advertise the scholarship
programs," Grotrian explained.
Grotrian cited an increase in the number of
students applying for financial aid. "in 1975,
9,900 students applied for some sort of fun-
ds . . . in 1979 that figure was up to 15,600," he
said.
The demise of the scholarship publication
represented a fundamental change in the
character of Financial Aid, according to
Associate Director for Financial Aid Paulette
Stallworth. "We do still have those pockets of
money (in addition to our general aid fund),"
Stallworth explained. "But now people are not
initially applying for those scholarships. Instead,
our office is selecting them."
STALLWORTH SAID many of the smaller
scholarships once advertised in the now-defunct

simplified
booklet have since become a part of the general
funds administered through the Office of Finan-,
cial Aid (OFA). "When a student applies for
financial aid, they are put on a list. We then
notify those who are eligible for certain scholar-
ships (such as the Michigan Annual Giving and
Regents' Alumni Scholarships)," she said.
Stallworth emphasized that the current
method of applying for scholarship money is
more efficient than past application procedures,
because "they apply for many scholarships with
one application."
According to Grotrian, there has been a
gradual shift in priorities away from giving
money based on merit-related criteria, and
toward giving money to financially needy
students instead.
"It was not until 1965 that the government
developed programs to aid financially needy
students."

State House committee OKs divestment bills

LANSING (UPI) - The liberal House
Civil Rights Committee approved on
party line votes yesterday a package of
bills prohibiting investment of state
funds in white-ruled South Africa.
The bills, sent to the House floor on 7-
1 votes, require public colleges to sell
all holdings in companies operating in
South Africa and prohibit similar in-
vestments by state pension funds. They
also ban deposit of state funds in banks
which loan money directly to South
African operations.
REPUBLICAN-BACKED amen-
dments extending the ban of a laundry
list of countries including the Soviet
Union which have been accused of
human rights violations were rejected
by the panel.
On the final votes, all GQP committee

members either abstained orvoted no.
Similar measures have died in the
House in previous sessions.
"THERE CAN be no doubt that U.S.
investments help support a brutal,
racist regime in South Africa," said
sponsor Perry Bullard, whose Ann Ar-
bor district includes the University,
which has been criticized for its South
Africa-related holdings.
The state's largest college, Michigan
State University, already has divested.
"The legislation we are proposing
would ensure that workers' retirement
funds are not used to support apartheid,
and will also get our universities out of
the business of supporting legal
segregation," he said.
A spokesman for the, Michigan
Manufacturers Association opposed the

package as an unconstitutional
restraint on investments.
The banking measure was opposed by
Robert Duff, a vice president with the
National Bank of Detroit.
The measure "could have a serious
impact on industrial enterprises
located here in Michigan. .. which
bring money into the state from foreign

countries and we feel greatly benefi
the state," he said.
Bullard stressed the bill is limited to
loans made directly to South African
operations. "We do not intend to
prohibit loans to any company
operating in the U.S. that happens to
have a subsidiary operating in South
Africa," he said.

State University, founding the school's
Institute of Psychology.
Fromm's work was closely
associated with that of American
psychoanalysts Karen Horney and
Harry Stack Sullivan.
TOGETHER, the three formed a
group known as the neo-Freudian
psychoanalysts, whose theories'

examined the social influences con-
tributing to neuroses and thus moved
away from Freud's em'phasis on purely
individual experiences and family
relationships.
In such works as "Escape fronS
Freedom" (1941), "Man for Himself
(1947), "The Forgotten Language"
(1951) and "Sane Society" (1955),
Fromm pioneered in applying
psychoanalytic thought to social and
cultural problems.
These theories led Fromm to assert
that the social and economic conditions
of a society produced certain specific
personality types but they did not mean
the individual should allow himself t
be formed and shaped by authoritariai
societies such as the Nazi regime he
himself fled.
In this case, Fromm wrote, man
should develop and hold to his own
standards.
