(AP) One winner of the fellowship went off in search of the elusive ciugong, the mammal upon which the mermaid legend was founded. Another said he'd like a year in whiclvto redesign the French lorn. Another is retracing t h e South American portion of Darwin's Beagle voyage, and yet another has been off living with he pygmies in Zaire for the jast two-and-a-half years. One former recipient described it as a "great program for promising weirdos." Some stuffed-shirts in academia find it a trifle frivolous and the former executive director says it's the most unlBMish, uncompute- rized fellowship he's ever heard of. Average time of solution: 61 minutes. Funny he should phrase it that way. For the fellowship is The Watson, named after Thomas J. Watson Sr., the man who created IBM and instilled into every.American « fear of folding, spindling or mutilating. .'·The fellowship is good for 57,000 for a portgraduate year of independent study and travel a b o a r d . The 70 annual recipients must have graduated from the 35 top colleges and universities that are in the program. Neither neatness nor grades count. Nor practicality nor results. A report is "required" at the end of the year, but it can be a page-and-a-half account, a sort of what-I-did-on-my-summer - vacation - that - lasted - a a-year. Or you can forget about it all together, since no one but who believed I would even live." Watson first established the Arnold Fellowship, just for Brown students, in memory of the professor who was willing to take a chance on him. Watson, his brother, Arthur, the former ambassador to France, and their two sisters then decided to honor their father with a similar program the Watson. The fellowship, begun in 1C68, is endowed through the will of their mother. "Father was an internationalist of some reputation,' says Watson, who eventually did take over the reins at IBM Recently retired, he remains chairman of the executive com mittee of the board of direc ors. The scholarship program, the amily thought, would be appro iriate to the man who worked o get IBM started abroad in the late teens and early 20's. Freewheeling it is, and Wat son has no regrets. "We talked with a number of professor, and we felt that if we pickec .he right students, it would be belter to let them go off alone.' Dr. Daniel Arnaud, he exec ulive director, adds: "In a bi zarre sort of way, we're not in lerested in results in the tradi ·ional sense. If we were looking for the definitive study on am of these programs we wouf send graduate students, or sci enttsts or professionals in the field. We are most interested in the individual, not the results. SURPRISING RESULTS But sometimes they get sur prising results, The kid wh Answers. On . Page. 9B Jesmer Claims Novel Is 'Fictional Writing' the executive director and the administrative assistant will ever read it anyway. As the brochure puts it' "The Foundation hopes to provide Fellows an opportunity for a focused and disciplined Wander- jahr of their own devising -- a break in which they might explore with some thoroughness a particular interest, test their aspirations and ..abilities, View their lives a n d ' American society in greater perspective and, concomitantly, develop a more Informed sense of international concern." "It's a program that is willing to take a chance on a-student," says- DrV Robert Schulze, the first executive director and now the dean of arts and sciences at the University of Northern Colorado. The fellowship is.the brainchild of the four Watson children, memorializing a father who saw the ramifications of internationalism,., shortly, .after the first' guns Of EWorld War: r ! had quieted.' It is said that when Thomas Watson Jr. was a student at Brown University here, and his father was already Mr. IBM the professor there either gen uflected before him or treated him like dirt. Your basic rich kid syndrome. But there was one, Samuel T. Arnold, who treated him .as .a -person in His own right. He was willing to take a chance on this rich kid as an individual and not as the heir apparent to the IBM fortune. "Heir to the IBM fortune?" Watson chorties today. "At that point lie was the only person went off to redesign the Frenc horn? He did it. He change one part so the horn wouldn' bleep when played. "He had been futzing ardun with this for a long time. W didn't know whether he woul accomplish this or not, but w did " k n o w that someday h ould accomplish something, took a chance," says Araud. Jeremy Balmuth, the boy r ho believed he could improve n the centuries-old design, is till abroad. Four of his horns ave been used by La Scala, le Milan opera house that is Europe's counterpart of The Act. Programs are often changed nee under way. Colin Barneft, ne zoologist who pursued the ugong, listed travel to East Africa, India. Southeast Asia, he Philippines, New Guinea, he Solomons and Australia. He hanged that to just Australia, le also came back with the irst known photos of the dugong in the wild. They are soon o be published, Barnett says. Harriett's report to Arnaud is not yet shaking the earth. In act, he overlooked enclosing a copy of pictures. "Yeah, I've been meaning to do that,'' he explains. SOME GRATEFUL And the low-key Arnaud no ticed that, too. "The little devil. :'I1 have to get after him. Some recipients," . he explains with the charm that classics professors seem to develop some- were near the Rubicon, ."are more overtly grateful than others." The six-year-old fellowship ha s enabled 400 men and women, mostly in their 20's, to pursue their dreams, with stipends totaling over $2.5 million thus far. Some people have been critical of the amounts of the scholarship. , "Watson's theory was that they shouldn't travel like paupers. These should not be niggardly stipends. He felt that il a student saw ah interesting print in Vienna -- not a Rembrandt, of course,, but just a print _ he should be able to buy it," says Schulze, the lor- mer director. The student gets the lump sum just before he's to take off and then he's on his own. This year, for the first time, t h e riendly IRS suggested that it would even foe more friendly it the students filed expense accounts for tax purposes when :hey came back. Once a leader of a jazz band band and was hack home in two months, funds gone. On thfi other budgeting extreme is tn» young man in Zaire, there !o:two-and-a-half years now...

I'd do it all over again," laughed Elaine Jesmer, as she began to explain the controversy and reason behind her first novel, "Number One With A Bullet.' An energetic, slim woman of 34, who said she'd just been to about 20 odd cities in a matter of days, Miss Jesmer bounced on her New York hotel bed, smiled and said, "Well, what do you want to know?" What's the "hangup" behind the book? It's a fictional piece of writing in which she says she just wanted to tell a story. It's centered around a record company that's owned by a black family --it's also filled with sex, violence, and systematic ploitation of major artists. For openers, Miss Jesmer says she's only worked for one record company eight months -- Ray Charles Records on the Tangerine label. "Normally I worked clubs, doing public relations work. In connection with the clubs I would he handling the acts that appeared. I kind of got into handling more acts than clubs because the road managers of several acts liked the job I'd done and wanted a service more directed to their client. So I ended up handling Marvin Gaye, Tammy Terrell, Martha and the Vandellas, the Four Tops and the Fifth Dimension -- mostly for engagements they did in the Los Angeles area." BLACK ARTISTS Pointing out the obvious, that she somehow always worked I with black artists, she ex: plained that it was because the clubs she worked for were black-oriented. Miss Jesmer says there was a definite attempt to suppress the novel. Last October she says she started receiving lel- : ters asking to see the manuscript. Her publisher refused. She says t h e r e was an obvious attempt to suppress it by a record company. "And there was no reason," she says- "My publisher told them it was a novel, but the letters got saltier 1 and saltier. Then, last month, my publisher got a letter say- ng that they were going to consult their lawyers. They had never read the book, a l l this ,ime they were asking for the book,, so they had never even seen it. It was all on rumor. The same day the letter came, hey had a lawyer call my publisher and ask for the manuscript. He told him he could buy it in the store." Next came a letter from the J u s t i c e Department. They wanted to know if she would be interested in contacting them about "anything." "So I had my lawyer call and tell them that it's fictional, and I don't have any facts. I have nothing that would substantiate a legal case for them." INVESTIGATION In 1973, the Justice Department began investigating reported use of drugs and payola by record companies interested in promoting their own artists. Although no indictments have icen returned, grand juries in several states have heard evidence about several alleged payola incidents. She says what's being done to ler is the same thing that hap- lened to the main character in Jie book -- the control of out- iut. She doesn't believe anyone :ias that right. "If I really had to sum up the book I would say that nobody, 10 corporation, has the right to tell an artist what to do, no matter how bizarre his product might be. No matter what they think of it in terms of what's current, because art should be free-" Movie rights of the book were sold to Al Ruddy, who also did the "Godfather." Ronnie Elder] was hired to write the screen play and Paramount was to finance the movie. Elaine says she got the same deal as Mario Puzo. Later she heard that the movie deal had fallen through. "And that freaked me out!" she says. "It seems, to me that-the're-' sentment. is due to' -the hearings, the Justice Department, and the lawyers. Everybody In the business is very jumpy about it. But it's also, I think, the fact that I am a white woman. Not just white, but also a woman. I think that really MOBILE HOMES, Inc. 2556 Mr. Comfort Rd.
