According to Nielsen, the
University helped the commit

planned open house to all high
school principals in the state.
The open house was origin
ally scheduled for April 13 but
was later changed to April 23
to coincide with E-week open

Only four high school prin
cipals answered the letter,
Nielsen said, and most of
these were mainly interested
in E-week.
The Council passed a mo

this year but to continue plans
for an Open House in I960.

The bill empowering the

does not contribute, but the
University contributes eight
per cent of the employee s an

In his legislative message,
Brooks said that measures
