Student Aid
A broad program to raise funds
for graduate fellowships during
the rest of this academic year was
authorized at a Jan. 15 meeting of
the University Development Coun-
cil Board of Directors.
Need for graduate fellowships in
all branches of the University was
shown, according to Council Di-
rector Alan W. MacCarthy, in th
report of the Council's Survey of
Needs Committee, formed, last
year to determine campus require-
Survey results pointedsout two
"almost universal needs": space
and student aid. Council officials
explained that the space require-
ment falls chiefly under state leg-
islative jurisdiction.
Logical Council Project
Since a primary Council func-
tion is to raise funds for Universi-
ty needs not met by legislative ap-
propriations, MacCarthy said ac-
tion to increase student aid and
fellowship support is "clearly a
logical project for Development
Council consideration."
With most of the funds expected
to come from corporations, foun-
dations and special gifts, the
Council hopes, MacCarthy said, to
realize about $250,000 within a few
Fellowship Needs
"The fellowship program," As-
sistant Council Director Thomas L.
Dickinson remarked,. "is intended
to satisfy the fellowship needs of
all the University's schools, col-
leges and administrative units."
Decision to launch the fellow-
ship program has been discussed
informally with University admin-
istrators, and formally . with the
Council's Executive Committee,
which has already endorsed the

Stern was 11 years old when he
made his debut with the Sympho-
