Pierce, Fla., chemistry; Harry III, Phoenix, Ariz., mathematics; Allan Jaworski, Passaic, N.J., mathematics; and Deane L. Root, Lexington, Ky., musicology.

NEW COLLEGE Page 2 Hilson nominations. Of all colleges and universities, public or private, in Alabama, Florida, Georgia and South Carolina, only Emory University and the University of Florida had more winners. Emory had six and Florida seven. Nationally, 1,124 students at 309 colleges and universities in the U.S. and Canada won designate status. In previous years, those selected by the Hoodro\..r Hilson National Fellowship Foundation received a fellowship at the graduate school of their choice. This year, with funds from the Ford Foundation not available, the Wilson selections are only being recommended to graduate schools for financial assistance. Sir Hugh Taylor, president of the foundation said, "Now our major role is to identify for graduate departments those students who in our view have the best potential for college teaching. This year's designates are as distinguished and carefully selected a group as last year's fellows. We hope all of them will receive assistance from the graduate schools or from federal or other fellowship programs." Fifteen regional committees made up of members of the academic profession selected the 1,124 l>loodrow Hilson designates out of a total of 11,682 who had been nominated by their college professors. In the first year, Netl1 College also had five students selected by the Foundation. Two are now studying at universities in England, while the other three are enrolled at graduate schools in this country, all preparing for careers in college teaching. 30 -
