A scholarship can not specify a persons color. That is called discrimination. Asking for a hundred negro scholarships for Marquette is what we are fighting against they can not specify any race or nationality. A hundred negro schalarships the word negro in itself would call these scholarships discrimination. Any poor person can qualify. Poor mans scholarship. Poor man can mean any one color race religion etc. How about the Mexicans? Negro scholarships in all colleges means on thing Plain DISCRIMINATION. No nationality specified. DISCRIMINATION or color.

Dear Mrs. Phillips
This is the program we would like to begin this summer at St. Boniface. It is similar to other Push-Up Programs in Chicago that were held this past summer. The programs were funded by the OEO office in Chicago.
We would appreciate any support or suggestions you could give.
Thank you very much.
