Columbia University is seeking to change the terms of the Lydia C. Roberts Graduate Fellowship that was originated in 1920, Newsday reported on Wednesday.

Lydia C. Roberts Graduate Fellowships 
Open to persons born in Iowa who have been graduated from an Iowa college or university. In addition to the stipend, the fellow is reimbursed the cost of traveling once from Iowa to New York City and back. Special provisions: holders may not concentrate their studies in law, medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, or theology, and each holder must, when accepting the award, state that it is his or her purpose to return to Iowa for at least two years after completing studies at Columbia; holders are eligible for reappointment.

The 90 plus year fellowship has stipulated that money be given only to “a person of the Caucasian race.”
Roberts left most of her $509,000 estate to the university when she died in 1920, creating the fellowship – with restrictions. Not only did Roberts stipulate that the fellowship would be for “whites only,” but the candidates must be from the state of Iowa, must not study law or several other fields. They also must return to Iowa for two years after graduating, news reports said.
University officials have since filed court papers last week seeking to change the race provisions. The New York Daily News has reported that the university has not awarded the fellowship since 1997.
Roberts was heir to her late husband’s medical patent company. 
The university said in a statement on Wednesday that it does follow gift conditions that violate anti-discrimination laws, the AP reported. 
None of the rules governing the fund, worth more than 800,000 today, can be charged. The school’s provost at the time, Grayson L. Kirk, defended the racial provision when the NAACP protested it in 1949.   >>>more<<<

Hardcore Gangs Hit Ohio Suburbs GANGS IN THE ’BURBS
Subversive element creeping beyond Columbus’ borders
Last year, Westerville North High School suspended two students who flashed MS-13 hand signs and drew gang insignia during an English-asa-second-language class. MS-13, or Mara Salvatrucha, is a notoriously violent street gang with roots in Los Angeles. It was formed by immigrants from El Salvador.

Gang crime isn’t nearly as serious or common in the suburbs as in some Columbus neighborhoods, but suburban schools and police departments are increasingly on watch.
"It’s not so centralized in the inner city as it used to be," said Pat Brooks, a veteran Columbus police gang unit officer.

Suburban police call Brooks and his colleagues when they suspect gang activity in their jurisdictions.

Most of the crack dealers in Reynoldsburg are gang members who live in Columbus, said Tye Downard, a Reynoldsburg police narcotics detective.

They go there to make mor…
