The report of the Committee on Graduate Study and
Research, recommending increased provision in the University

funds granted by outside bodies might not have specific
restrictive clauses, but tended to create a restrictive
atmosphere in research.  Research funds should be available
to the humanities as well as the sciences.

of the university budget, and stated that after the amount
available to the University for the year was known, the
