an interview yesterday that E. J. Ot-'
taway in 1927 when he was president
of the National Alumni Association
wanted to give the alumni clubs and,
classes something to work towards so
he instituted a project known as the
Michigan Alumni Ten Year Program.
By this plan, he said, alumni groups
make gifts to the University for spe-
cial purposes. The project, Morgan
stated, was originally planned for
ten years brut it was such a success
that it has been continued so at the
end of every ten years a stock isI
taken of the funds. .
39 Classes Set Up Fundsr
The Literary and Engineering Class
of 1876 was the oldest class to estab-t
lish a fund under the plan, Morganr
said, and it was known as the Schol-t
astic Loan Fund.t
Since that year, he stated, 39r
classes composed of literary, law, den-s
tistry, engineering, medicine, nursing1
and library .students have set upt
funds amounting to $73,391.86. Thisv
money, he said, is being used fora
scholarships, loan funds, fellowshipss
and the purchasing of books for the
University Administers Fundsc
These funds, he explained, are pos-
sessed by the University to be ad- s
ministered by the University Com-t
mittee on Loans and the Universityr
Committee on Scholarships in thet
various departments. The commit-t
tees, he said, take into considerationv
conditions made by the alumni group
contributing the money.r
Morgan said that when a distin-f
guished alumni stated that no classc
should be without a project whose
goal would be in the form of a classX
memorial with the University as
beneficiary he voiced the idea of this
