Calling the Tune

December 1975
National Review;12/19/1975, Vol. 27 Issue 49, p1458
The article highlights the U.S. regulations which state that any college attended by a single student who receives a government grant or loan is subject to federal guidelines of the affirmative action varieties. Independent colleges are fighting back against the reduction of their status to vassals of the government. The rulings have apparently exposed that such aid is aimed against the independence of colleges and the continued existence of colleges that refuse to surrender their independence.
