desree and date, a d’°’o£ specie ieatioo, aodioaapetancies. she plans to key

Mil has made a proposal to H!!! to prepare an extensive and expensive ($300-500,000)
roster of wonea scholars in the sciences and in other fields it they get the grant.

In the aheenoe ot action by Eli they have son ahead and prepared a "poor man's (woman's)
registry" by gleaming the naees of women from Amie» I'll OF SCIEIICE‘ (next issue to
be Alfllcafl lull Am Home 0? scmtcz). they estimate that they will get 9,000 wanna‘:
names from that source, and expect to be able to retrieve information. primarily in the
biological sciences because that is where (115354 is greatest, in a very few weeks. She
will try to get permission to send us a copy or their proposal to HIV.

Pool believes that there should be a central effort to create a national roster in

all oi the disciplines and suggested that new funds night he aouflat to augment funds
put up by the seven sisters. She felt that mm was the most logical source of hands since
they are administering fiderel contract compliance and that H!!! ahould bear some of
the financial responsibility for creating a roster which would enable the ioiveraities
to comply with the federal requirement.

tool reported that the National Science Foundation has an extensive roster which is
confidential and used for statistical purposes only. They are preparing an update

this year but plan to drop the roster afterwards for lack oi’ funds. She thought

it might be productive, it the seven Sisters do decide to do a ‘roster, to contact

us? and try to take ole: their roster and aontwt the people on it for their permission
to release the information in it.

‘mere is also a computerised roeter of all 10's, retrievable under 68 subdivisions.
which was very inexpensive to set up (M00) because the basic information was collected
for mailing lists used by shes-flaraaceutical industry.

the will send us a copy of Afll'e first nevsletter.
