To Be Sclt-Sustainuig The new college, the Bishop said, is expected to be financially self-sustaining if endowment by industry and individual sources is offered in tile same degree as is the case with other private col- cges.

"It is realized that the increas- I'IIR cost of a college education out of the state has prevented many of our fine families from sending their sons and daughters to college. "It is our sincere hope that this new facility will give oppor- tunity to those who, though de- siring a Catholic education, would not previously bave found it fi- nancially feasible, and will also encourage many others to think more seriously about a higher Catholic education." 4 Planners Named To plan for the establishment of the new college, Bishop Curtis- named a committee of four: The Very Rev.
