SEX SUBJEOrS are still con¬ sidered taboo around many homea and boys and girls often leam more from '^friends" than from authoritative sources. The amount of mlslniformatlon is evi¬ denced by the many facts of mls- Inforraation expressed by young¬ sters. Because they believe that sex education should be primarily taught in the hoime, the Family Life Education Committee has asked Dr. Kaplan to give par¬ ents the knowledge and tech¬ niques of telling their children the "facts."

BRANDEIS BANQUET WILL HONOR GRANT, LERNER IS SPEAe "The announcement of the Ford Foundation's recent $6 million grant to Brandeia yjiiverslty Is especially gratifying/at this time, just before our Brandeis Univer¬ sity Club of Columbua dinner," reported Jack S. Resler, presi¬ dent of the organization referring to the event which will take place at the Fort Hayea Hotel on Sun¬ day evening, Jan. 6. Resier went on to say, "We're especially proud to have Dr. Max Lerner, Max Riohter Professor ot American Civilization and In¬ stitutions at Brandeis University, as our guest speaker for that nlglit. We're hoping that we'll have a large turnout to welcome Dr. Lerner." THE FORD FOUNDATION $6 million grant to Brandeia Uni¬ versity la to suijport its over-all academic development. The Foundation called for the funds to be matched on a three- to-one basis during the next three years. Brandeia, according¬ ly, must raise $18 mllUon by 1966 to earn the grant. THE GRANT ITSELF and the amount Involved are of great sig¬ nificance. Not only are Brandeia' academic ^programs immeasur¬ ably strengthened by the ISVjun- datlon's unprecedented offering to a small university, but It sig¬ nals that Brandeis has won a seat In the highest councils of learning In a/ far shorter time than even Ifs founders dreamed possible. The Idea ot the Bran- dels institution ia just US years old. Tho Brandeis Club of Colum¬ bua dinner Is scheduled to start at 7 pjn, with cocktails at 6:1B pjn.
