Behaviorial Science Survey .spon
sored by the Ford Foundation, will
meet here Wednesday, Thursday
and Friday to consult with UNC
personnel engaged in studying the
status, problems, and needs of the
behavioral sciences at the University.

, The Behavioral Science Survey
was begun last summer under a
$50,000 grant from the Ford Foun
dation. The University, together
with four other universities (Chi
cago, Harvard, Michigan, and Stan
ford), was awarded the grant to
make a "self-survey of its training
and research programs for the sci
entific study of human behavior."
The study is expected to continue
for a year. .
In addition to members of the
Visiting Committee, two represen
tatives of the Ford Foundation, Al
len Wallis and Preston Cutler, cur
rently on leave from the Univer
sity of Chicago, will also be pres

organizations related to the Uni

from their charters, constitutions
or bylaws concerning race, color,
creed or national origin."
However the bill states that "this
measure observes the right of spe
cifically avowed religious groups
to require their members to ac
cept certain religious tenets. . . '
If accepted, the bill will give or
ganizations until January 1, 1955
to remove such clauses from their
