ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the U.S. administration's 1966 bill for college and university assistance. It does ask for a $30 million appropriation for the coming fiscal year for extension of assistance to developing institutions, but it cautiously refrains from asking for any specific dollar authorization for the succeeding three fiscal years. More significantly, however, this year the administration's explanatory statements accompanying the legislation define a developing institution as a small one. Title III of the Higher Education Act of 1965 is a major effort to alleviate the problem of small colleges, one issuance explains. These problems are said to include inability to compete successfully for funds from private sources or to participate in other federal programs.
