Dvorak Scholarship
  At the close of the 67-68 school year,
  Prof. Ray Dvorak, for 34 years director
  of the University of Wisconsin bands,
  retired. Announcement was then made
  of the establishment of a scholarship
  fund in his name. Currently that fund
  stands at approximately $3,500 includ-
  ing matching supporting funds guaran-
  teed under an arrangement with the
  University Foundation.
  This month Ray retires officially from
  the faculty. (He has been engaged ex-
  clusively in research projects at the
  School of Music since leaving his band
work.) Since hundreds of thousands of
Badger fans over the years have swung
their arms at his bidding in the tradi-
tional singing of "Varsity", and since
Ray's unflagging zeal for the University
and his capacity to arouse people to
love and support it has been exemplary,
we think Wisconsin Alumni Association
members will want to know more about
the scholarship fund and to contribute
to it.
  It is a $250 annual scholarship fund.
The recipient must be a graduate of a
Wisconsin high school enrolling for the
first time as an undergraduate music
major on the Madison campus; must
enroll in the band program; must audi-
tion and be selected by the School of
Music Awards committee from a list
furnished by the Office of Student Finan-
Jial Aids; and his eligibility will be
based on performance, scholarship and
need, in that order.
  Checks should be made payable to the
Raymond F. Dvorak Scholarship Fund
and sent to: R. L. Tottingham, Execu-
tive Secretary, UW Band Alumni Asso-
ciation, 407 N. Francis Street, Madison,
53706.
