"The first question pro duced the following results: 70 per cent of those inter viewed felt that the purpose was one of review and eval uation of material covered during the semester. Fifteen per Tent felt the purpose was pending on the instructor" to a flat "no."

Number, Amount "We hope that we will be able to increase the number of the professorships rapidly and also increase the amount of the salary supplements," he explained, which he said had not beon decided. "The going level of our faculty salaries simply is not high enough to enable us to compete successfully for the services of professors who are being sought by the Ivy League, the Big Ten and the California institutions," he noted. Under the program the Re gents approved, nominations for the Professorships can be initiated by University facul ty members. Chancellor Hardin said that a committee would probably be estab lished, composed of faculty members. Only persons of wide aca demic reputation and irre proachable personal integrity are eligible for consideration and the selection plan pro vides for an extensive screen ing process. It's possible that specific chairs or names for the Pro fessorships will be estab lished, Dr. Hardin said. The positions will be con tinuing. All colleges will be eligible and will be under discussion, he added. I f -. .Jill I l ! 4 Dean Dow David Dow Is New Law Dean I Belsheim Resigns Will Still Teach Veteran Law College Dean ; Edmund O.
