Dear Catharine Stimpson,

I'll look forward to getting together with you in’ the fall on plans for the Woman's ' Center, and a search forthe right director. How much help I shall be, I don't know -- but I'm eager to try.

A thought: I had lunch yesterday with Betty Harfis who, with Gloria Steinem, is starting a magazine for "educated women", looking tboward a circulation of 500,000 or so. She came offfszchologz Todgg (I don't call that educated, but then, one mustn't be‘snobbish5 and declares she will have backing. I sug- gested to her that one of the regular features of such a magazine might'be "Reports" from here and there‘-- abroad, the Third World, Eastern Europe, etc. , $1 from the campus too. It seems to me that this publication (it will be called l_J_s;_.) would be welledapted to spread information about the Center,'a.nd to keep in touch with other such efforts. Nor does pub— licity hurt the effort to raise funds for ex-

pansion --

Except for two'or three weeks in September, after the 10th, I shall be here most of the time.
