WASHINGTON (AP)- President
Reagan has retreated on his call for
volunteer forces to "take up the slack"
for the social programs hit by his
budget cuts, but he still wants private
groups to create jobs and training in
communities hit hard by unem-
The White House has not formally
announced the shift away from a goal
that leaders in the non-profit sector said
was an impossible dream. But the
president's recent speeches on volun-
teerism have been prefaced by
assurances that he doesn't expect
charitable organizations "to take over
the social welfare system."
NOW, THE focus is on cooperative ef-

corporations and civic groups to com-

Brian O'Connell, president of In-
dependent Sector, an umbrella group
for foundations and national volunteer
groups, said it was unrealistic to expect
private charities-many of them hurt
by the budget cuts-to step in.
In an interview yesterday, O'Connell
said he has detected the change in
"I THINK HE initially hoped that
private giving and volunteering could
do more than is practical," O'Connell
said. "I think now he recognizes that it
is a mistake to suggest that we can
transfer many of these government
programs to voluntary organizations
. . . He's begun to be more realistic
about what government should do but

O'Connell's organization plans to
release a report today which is expec-
ted to show that the administration's
budget cuts are striking hardest at

aid, while weakening the private
groups set up to serve them.
Former Health, Education and
Welfare Secretary John Gardner, who
founded both Common Cause and In-
dependent Sector, had predicted the
organizations that deal with the
neediest would be hardest hit by the
cuts while the arts, for instance, would

$5,000 per year beginning this fall as
part of a fellowship program
established by the S.K. Yee Scholarship
Foundation of Hong Kong, according to
Law School Dean Terrance Sandalow.
The foundation will donate $100,000
annually to the law school to be
distributed among 20 of its students.
Award recipients will be chosen on a
need basis, but the final decision, San-
dalow said, will rest with himself. New
recipients will be chosen each year, but
students will be eligible to receive the
award more than once.

Although the award is a scholarship
and not a loan, as with other law school
grants, there is a "moral obligation" to
repay the grant, according to San-
