; NEW COLLEGE NEWS RELEASE FOR RELEASE: Wednesday p.m. (June 3, 1964) Thursday a.m. (June 4, 1964) NEW COLLEGE, SARASOTA, FLORIDA FURMAN C ARTHUR INFORMATION Sarasota, Fla.---A full scholarship in mathematics and natural sciences has been awarded annually to New College by the William G. Selby and Marie Selby Foundation. The initial $3,900 grant will go to Ray B. Enslow, Richwoods, Ill., Charter scholar who made a perfect score on his College Boards examinations both in Mathematics and Advanced Mathematics. To be known as the William G. Selby and Marie Selby Foundation Science Scholarship, it will cover both tuition and room and board. The scholarship will be award-ed annually by New College on the basis of merit and need. It will be presented to the young man or woman who has "demonstrated exceptional interest and ability towards mathematics and natural sciences with an indicated desire to major in these areas." The scholarship has been accepted "with heartfelt gratitude" by President George F. Baughman. Enslow, whose college boards scores in chemistry and verbal areas were scarcely below his exceptional math ratings, has been described by his teachers as "a most unusual, well-rounded, and deserving young man." He is also active in sports, winning a letter in football. He is a member of his student council, a finalist in the National Merit Scholarship program and was twice selected for summer activity in the National Science Foundation program. Enslow, making New College his first choice, said: "The sense of excitement, of adventure, which pervades all that I have heard or read about New College and .;h t ch underlies the New College theory of education, inspires me with a desire to be a part of this noble experiment, 'to be in on the ground floor.'"
