Williams to Launch $7.5 ion Drive Williams College in the fall will begin a concerted three-year drive to raise the $7.5 million required to secure •» $2-5 million Ford hinge on alumni reaction to Wil foundation challenge grant. The goal is by far the largest the 174-year-old school has set. But the drive is just the first phase of a ID-year campaign to raise a yet unannounced cum. IJke Other Culleges President John E, Sawyer In a leaflet sent to alumni said the Ifr year drive -"will be similar in magnitude to those announced or completed by comparable iratilu- lions in recent years." Amheril College, comparable in size arid academic rank, in March, 1962, started a 10-year campaign to raise $36 million. For Williams, the Ford grant represents the largest gift from any source in the last quarter of a century. But to win it, Dr. Sawyer ob- served, the school must collect $7.5 million by July 1, 1966.

Pete Seegar Like Matinee Idol At Lenox Music Barn By TIIAYER WALKER Maybe folk music should rever to its former role of obscurity. Certainly afler last night's Pete Seegar session at the Music Barn in Lenox, it was clear that mass popularity has done neither the music nor Mr. Seegar any good Summer Campers Singing before a standing-room only crowd consisting mostly o: clapping, stomping and cheering teenage summer campers, the lean 43-year-old folk artist appear ed to be more of a matinee ido than a dedicated musicologist. And to a great extent the blame rests on the well-meaning Mr Seegar, for he has been popular folk music's principle figure for over a decade. His avowed purpose is "to sing as many songs for as many people as is humanly possible," which obligation he met long ago. But his strong voice and sure fingers continue the drive with religious fervor. The result: An overwhelming appeal (o youth who worship him with almost Messianic zeal. But last night Mr. Seegar caught himself in his own trap and is popularity betrayed him. The predominantly juvenile au dience prohibited Mr. Seegar from delvirtg inlo his endless menial collection of lillle known tunes and instead they demanded familiar songs. Only once did he break into a lune on tlte spur of the moment — his common practice — and singing "Groundhog" without plan ning on it.

As one observer wryly noted, the best part of the evening was that most of the audience was too young to drive and they caused no traffic problem. In August, Mr. S«eg»r embarks on a privately sponsored world lour, from Australia, India, Europe and Africa, designed to present a "different side of America than they (the people) may know." This reviewer only hopes thai foreign audiences are more receptive to learning than the Music Barn's listeners who prefer to rehash what they already know.
