Rexall Drug and Chemical Company, a national firm with headquarters in Los Angeles, has notified New College of its continued scholarship support for Paul Hansma, now a second year student at the college. Richard A. Parker, Rexall vice president, noted that the scholarship support was being given in behalf of the employees at Rexall. The Rexall scholarship was for the full amount of college costs for one year and tbis will be the second year for its application to assist Hansma. "Now, more than ever," said Parker, "Rexall and other companies such as our Thompson Industries subsidiary, headquartered at Phoenix, near Paul's home, need bright, well-rounded young men. Your school is doing much to help meet this need." New College President John Elmendorf said that he was pleased to report to Rexall that "Paul is fulfilling our highest expectations, coming to us as he did with great promise." Hansma came to New College as a Charter Scholar, one of five students in the first class of 101 to be so honored for their record of scholastic and community achievements. -more-

"His first year examination results were outstanding and Paul is off to a fine start in his second year," he noted. Paul had an impressive record in both his high school and community life. This record was capped in 1964 when he was chosen as a Presidential Scholar by a Special commission appointed by President Lyndon B. Johnson. One hundred and young men and women were chosen from the nation's high schools to be signally honored for their accomplishments in the classroom. ==30==
