By CAROL PRINS
Twenty-four scholarship grants have been authorized by the
University Scholarship Committee for Hungarian students wishing
to study in Ann Arbor.
The committee had originally approved four grants which.would
be financed by a special endowment fund set up by University Pres-

Two University vice-presidents

Williams' budget recommendations
to the legislature inadequate for1
the University's needs.
Gov. Williams last week asked'
the legislature to appropriate $31,-
646,795 for administration and op-
eration of the University, nearly
$2,500,000 less than the Univer-
sity budget request of $34,121,000
for general operations.
Vice-President and Dean of
Faculties Marvin Niehuss said a
budget cut of more than $1,000,000
less than the University requested
would interfere with plans to raise'
wages and salaries and to increase
enrollment by 1,800.
Cuts of the size proposed by
Gov. Williams would mean a de-
cline in the University's ability to'
compete for capable faculty mem-

in the number of additional stu-
dents admitted next fall, Niehuss
