Blackburn's President To Spread Work-Study Plan JL CARLINVILLE — A college work-study program, long in effect at Blackburn College in Carlinville, is included in Slate Department aid plans lor college- poor countries. Rep. Paul Findley (R-I11.) announced today that the Slate Department's bureau of Educalion- al and Cultural Affairs has approved a grant under which Blackburn's president, Dr. Robert P. Ludlum, will visit several countries in the Near and Middle East this fall to lecture, consull and advise leaders in education on the work-study approach. As developed at Blackburn College, Hie program requires that each student give 15 hours a week toward construction, maintenance and operation of the college. In this way students are able to receive a college education at half- price or less. Prior to the Stale Department's decision to finance Ludlum's foreign trip, publicity about Black burn College had appeared in at least nine Asian countries, through exhibits sponsored by the U.S. Information agency and in Voice of America broadcasts. Reuters Ltd. News Service and publications of the U.S. Information Service have carried the Blackburn story to "literally every publication in the world." Immediate Response "The response was immediate and substantial," said Findley, with several countries requesting expert counsel in establishing work-study colleges. Among these countries are India, Iran, Pakistan and Israel." In the past, representatives of institutions overseas have visited Blackburn and have instituted the Blackburn work-study program, or variations of it, in their own institutions. The U.P. Agricultural University, the University of Poona and Khalsa College, all in India, have made inquiries concerning the program. All but the latter has a similar program now in existence. Khalsa College hopes to insitute the plan as soon as possible. Blackburn was visited by representatives of Poona and the U.P Agricultural University when they were in the U.S. on State Department sponsored tours. Blackburn has also provided administrative guidance through the U.S. Information Agency. Two Turkish normal schools adopted the Blackburn plan in the late 1930's, following the residence at Blackburn of Wasant H. Golay, now Educational and Cultural Attache to the U.S. from Turkey. One institution on Formosa has adopted a form of the Blackburn work program and a second has proposed to send a representative to the Blackburn campus in Car- UnvJlle this fall. The grant to Ludlum is undei the exchange program, making available, tp U.S. Offices abroad the services of outstanding Amer leans to assist them in developing good will, understanding and respect for the United States. A member of the House Com mittee on Education and Labor Findley encouraged the Depart ment of State to send Ludlum week are devoted to only "house- <eeping" tasks. Students serve is cooks, secretaries, janitors, lab issistants, as well as firing the boiler, maintaining the grounds and buildings and operating the snack bar, bookstore and laundry. Students also build new buildings, doing all the masonry, plumbing, wiring and carpentry. Only "pro" on new construction jobs is the college's superintendent of new construction. By doing this-the college saves nearly half the cost of' constructing new buildings. Savings realized by the work program are passed on to the stu- DR. LUDLUM abroad. 'Housekeeping' Tusks Under the Blackburn plan the 15 hours the students work each dents in the form of lower fees. A full year of study at Blackburn, Deluding all fees, tuition, room and board, is only $800. This is much lower than at other private liberal arts colleges and even lower than at state-supported universilies. The Blackburn work program was instituted in 1913 by now President Emeritus Dr. William Mestrezat Hudson. Eat 3 meals a day — lose 6-10-15 Ibs.
