Program needs $500,000 drive to tap All sources the University a special education opportunities program which has plans to enrol 500 students not normally eligible to attend the University needs $500,000 before the first week of june if the program is to be fully implemented. If the fund drive Falls Short of its goal the number of students accepted under this program will be reduced or the amount of financial Aid per student will be reduced. Either Way the program will not be As effective As originally planned. All persons connected with the. Plan have emphasized the urgency in collecting the Money for the program one which could turn out to be the largest commitment a University Ever has made to any plan of this kind. The Money must be collected by Early june or the program May fail. Charles Warwick associate director of admissions and records said fund drives Are being conducted in Many areas. A we Are contacting the Federal government private foundations alumni students and faculty a he said. A we will not concentrate our fund raising efforts in one area. It probably will take All our sources to get the kind of Money we the University already has obtained some Type of commitment from 150 High school students who have been identified with the program.
