AN INTERVIEW WITH
CHANCELLOR YOUNG
                                     H. Edwin Young, 51, a University
                                   vice president was the unanimous
                                   choice of the Board of Regents for
                                   Madison campus chancellor when it
                                   selected him in September. He had
                                   been the only nomination made by
                                   University President Fred Harvey
                                   Harrington.
                                     Mr. Young, a former dean of the
                                   College of Letters and Science, re-
turned to the University last March as
a vice president, after having served
as president of the University of Maine
for three years.
  It has been an active three months
for the new chancellor. One of his
chief interests has proved to be the
unclogging of any line of communica-
tions between his office and the stu-
dents, faculty, press, alumni and tax-
payer. ("Tell the alumns to write to
me if they have a question: they'll get
an answer, and it won't be a form
letter!") The questions printed here
have been asked and answered several
times this fall. Compiled from various
press conferences, they are verbatim.
