fessors have received grants for
summer research from the South-
ern Fellowship Fund.

They are Dr. Alexander Stump,

Newton Jones, professor of his-
tory.

Dr. Stump, for his research
project, will continue investiga-
tions into the possibility of nu-
clear changes during the vege-
tative stages of lesquerensia spi-
relis.

Dr. Jones plans additional re-
search into the need for and

Carolina during the Civil War
and Reconstruction period.

one college is the maximum per-
mitted by the Southern Fellow-
ships Fund, an agency of the
Council of Southern Universi-
ties.

Finalists Compete

Twenty-two high school sen-
iors from four states reached the
finals of the Founder's Scholar-
ships awards at Presbyterian
College and were special guests
for a brief stay on the campus.

Announcements will be made
later of the winning recipients
in this program which provides
for eight grants, covering four
years of study and ranging up

ed on the basis of intellect, lead-
ership and character.

The 22 finalists from South
Carolina, Georgia, Virginia and
Florida, were selected on the
basis of competitive preliminary
tests from among a field of 75
candidates. They received ad-
ditional tests and interviews and
were honored guests at the an-
nual Dean's List banquet during
their campus visit.



Graham Reynolds Gives
Presbyterian $10,000

Another $10,000 gift to the de-

nounced by President Marshall

This amount is being contrib-
uted by Graham Reynolds of

tor and leader of the Trenton
Presbyterian Church.

Dr. Brown, in expressing his
appreciation for the generous
gift, said that Reynolds is estab-
lishing a fund to which he plans
to add in future years. The re-
turn on the invested capital will
be used for scholarships until the
donor designates his total a-
mount for building purposes.
