Proxies Rdp 'Give-aways' For Colleges (Last Article In a Series) By HARRISON WEBER (Iowa Dally Presa Assn. Writer) PES MOINES — College "ain't" what it used to be. Naturally, colleges and universities have gone through many changes during the past decade. One of these changes affects scholarships. It used to be that our institutions I of higher learning would rush with' open arms to the person or organization offering a scholarship . . . tain't necessarily so today. The trend is for the party making the scholarship to also provide funds to cover part, and sometimes all, the cost of educating the person receiving the benefits of the grant. Mauckcr's View "In general, I think it is clear that the rapid development of scholarships and grants to students makes more difficult t h e problem of colleges and universities, if such grants are not accompanied by financial assistance to the educational institutions," Dr. J. W. Maucker. president of Iowa State Teachers College, Cedar Falls, stated. "When the institutions needed students and could benefit by the additional income from the scholarship without having to add staff or facilities, the scholarships were highly desirable from the institu- j lion's point of view. ] "In recent years, however, I many institutions have reached the 'breaking point' where for each additional student there is an added cost in the way of additional facilities and staff. Thus the new student comes as an added burden, rather than a gain from the viewpoint of the finances of the institution," Dr. Maucker stated. He also said, "these considerations are felt more sharply, at least at the present time, by the private than by the publicly supported institutions." j Dr. Garbee, president of Upper! Iowa, Fayette, was very outspoken on the subject. "My personal feeling concerning , tuition grants, scholarships, athletic grants in aid, and other such 'give-a-way' programs for colleges is, that it's reaching a situation wherein the colleges are going to find themselves extremely hard pressed to keep up," he stated. "We find here in Iowa a very vicious program of public school administrators and parents of high stfflj^jyaduating seniors -/vying JOINS AIR FORCE . . . Roger F.

For Breaking Deadlock Over Measure— Demo Leaders Cool to New GOP Rights Proposal By EDMOND LE BRETON WASHINGTON W> - Democratic congressional leaders were reported cool today to a new Republican proposal for breaking the deadlock over civil rights. At the same time, Republican leaders were said to be in the mood to revise their proposal somewhat in an effort to win Democratic support. There appeared considerable doubt that the two sides would 12 Timet Herald, Carroll, Iowa Thursday, Aug. 22, 1957 The GOP proposal would give judges sole discretion to decide whether there should be a jury trial in voting rights cases in which a person is accused of criminal contempt for violating a court injunction.

In the event he decided there should be a jury ate, would guarantee jury trials to defendants in criminal contempt cases. This would apply not only to voting rights cases but to cases arising under a wide range of laws. Conviction for criminal contempt would carry a possible penalty of up to six months in jail and up to $1,000 fine. .

Thus the four pro-civil rights Democrats on the* committee must have the support of at least three of the committee Republicans to force a meeting and get action on the stalled bill.
