more unpleasant.

I theught ahwut the brochura yesterday, sitting in a car dealer's, where my car was getting its axponaive, ridiculous 9.000 mile check—u§. In terma cf grayhica, I favor type faces to give us a scans of vitality, alan, ate. Ané is print over photos tsa expensive?

I see the order of the esaays as this. tiafl togethar with very brief bridge remarks:

1) My ineroduation, which ia much more of an introénction to the nthcrs than it was;

2) Hirra, telling why we must all in thinking about women;

3) Annatte and Suzanne. calling &haut Women‘5 Studios.

reminding the concerned that we still think of aurselvaa as an acadnfitc institution;

4} Iola. telling about books. a logical extension of Annette and Suzanne. (I wculd put the list of coursea in the back, like an appendix.)

5) Then Pat. telling why wumen in not do «all at college, but why they might be different at iarnard. I would edit her in this way. Reverse the tract of her comments.

other mates: 1) We @en't refer to the University anywhere. Can

yam think af any place to do so gracefully? E.g. ahauld a reference ta Calumbia go in my introduction, sayxng ws hmpe ta call an its reaaurcea, two, yum yum. 2) Mirra needs statistics; e.g. in her

first pwragraph can she say exactly what the rise of the grapartiwn

of weman in the work farce has been. 3) in page 2 of Jana'5 piece Sfimewfle has Written "Omit?" next to the first full paragrayh. I

wwulfl leave it in. hecause it gives concrete ideas, which we need.

I talked to Ellie yesterday, a nice, amuaing c»nversation,~ and aha said she is looking for juicy quotes finnno1& Earnard women. she also mentioned she might be seeing Mrs. Sulzbergar. It aeems to me that with large possible donors (or is it possible large denors) we should strea& the fellowship program, which will take
