The announcement came today from the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation at Princeton, New Jersey. The award was one of 1200 made after a talent hunt carried on throughout the United States and Canada Going directly to the heart of education's most urgent problem —the critical shortage of qualified teachers—the Wood Wilson Fellowship program recruits and supports promising scholars for their first year of graduate study. The project is backed by a $25 million grant from the Ford Foundation. According to Hans Rosenhaupt the program's national director, the need for college teachers in the 1960s can only be met if for every single Woodrow Wilson Fellow thirty other members of the Class of 1959 begin to prepare themselves for teaching careers. It has been predicted that between thirty and forty thousand new full-time college teachers each year will be needed to train the wave of students seeking college educations in the Sixties. The current annual output of Ph.D's averages 9,000, of which only half go into college teaching. This year's Wilson Fellows were chosen from 7,000 candidates, all nominated and all rigorously screened by committees of faculty members. These candidates came from over 700 undergraduate colleges. Elected Wuson Fellows begin graduate work next fall at 80 different universities. Each Fellow receives a living allowance of $1,500. plus the full cost of tuition and fees. Married students receive additional stipends. Mr. Armacost completed his undergraduate work at Carleton college. He is now at Bonn, Germany, on a Fulbright scholarship. Edwin C. Noe Suffers Fatal Attack Edwin Clare Noe, 41, suffered a fatal heart attack Saturday .night while driving into his home [at 1555 East Lugonia avenue.
