Besides these continued grants-in- aid, recent WARF contributions in- clude the Charles S. Slichter en- dowed professorship, the University Houses faculty apartment project, and the Enzyme Institute building. The foundation also recently opened an insecticide laboratory in its new headquarters building at Madison. Latest WARF-financed discovery is a potent rat killer developed by bio- chemistry Prof. Karl Paul Link and his associates. All this and more, for since its birth the organization has awarded grants to the University totaling more than $4,000,000 and it has sup- ported more than 2,000 research proj- ects. That is a better record than the total of state tax funds made available for similar purposes. WARF has had a tinge of bad luck, too. The federal government's anti-trust men threatened it with extinction back in the early '40s when the principal source of income was from patents, particularly the Steen-bock. But late in 1945 thepaten- expired, licenses were terminated, and the remaining patents were dedicated to the public: when the reasons for anti-trust action were gone, the government stepped out. Some of the most conspicuous men in American business are now direc- tors of the foundation. All alumni, they are Harry A. Bullis, '17, chair- man of the board, General Mills, Minneapolis; D. A. Crawford, '05, president of the Pullman Co., Chi- cago; George I. Haight, '99, Chi- cago attorney; William R. Kellett, '22, assistant vice president, Kim- berly-Clark Corp., Neenah; W. S. Kies, '99, W. S. Kies and Co., New York; C. S. Pearce, '00, director, Colgate-Palmolive Peet Co., Chi- cago; Donald Slichter, '22, North- western Mutual Life Insurance Co., Milwaukee. Others include Justice Timothy Brown, '11, recently appointed to the Wisconsin state supreme court, and Walter A. Frautschi, '24, vice- president of the Democrat Printing Co., Madison. Bullis, Haight, and Frautschi are all past presidents of the Wisconsin Alumni association. The Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation will receive the $50,000 estate of Robert W. Dawley, MS '22, Madison, after the death of Mr. Dawley's wife and brother. Mr. Dawley died last July. According to the will, an adopted son receives $100 and the widow will receive the income from the remain- der of the estate. At her death, future income will go to the brother. After the death of the brother the estate will go to WARF. Dawley was a member of Sprague Dawley, Inc., which raises rats for experimental purposes. OCTOBER, 1949 SPORTS COACH IVY WILLIAMSON * ,.Utmost Confidence" "WISCONSIN is strong at cen- ter." "Ivy's end problem is a huge one." Center Bob "Red" Wilson, Bad- gers' "most valuable player" the past two seasons and captain of this season's gridders, will be switched from center to end position on offen- sive plays. Tackle Bob Shea quits football to concentrate on baseball; End Har- old Faverty, Halfback Bob Mans- field, Fullback Cal Vernon, and Guard Nick Collias didn't come is resting an injured leg another year; star center, Joe Kelly, was rumored ineligible but has definitely returned to the active list. "Nobody expects us to win over two games this year and some say we will have to go like the devil to do that." THAT'S WHAT the sportswriters were groaning about before the Wis- consin-Marquette game on sunny Sept. 24; coach Ivy Williamson agreed "it's going to be plenty tough this first year." But after an over-rated Marquette got trounced 41-0 by an underrated Wisconsin, Badger fans went around with new lights in their eyes. Only in 1914 and 1915 had the Hilltop- pers taken such beatings from Wis- consin when the respective scores were 48-0 and 85-0. There were running passes snagged like Badgers hadn't snagged them in a long time. There was blocking, running, kicking, and pass- ing that the stands loved. And there was spectacular trickery in ball han- dling which fans far away could only read about Sunday morning. "I would call it a squad victory more than the brilliance of any one 19 Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation TTENENT OF FIN DT!ON December 31, 1948 Assets Current Assets ----------------------$ 222,428.56 (Cash in Banks, Accounts Receivable, Inventories) Investments -------------------------12,992,415.38 (Stocks, Bonds, Mortgages, Real Estate, at book value) Buildings, Land and Other Assets -------- 694,062.67 Total Assets -----------------------------$13,908.906.61 Liabilities and Capital Accounts Current Liabilities ------------------- $ 532,092.34 (Royalties due Inventors, Taxes Withheld, Notes Payable) Grants Payable to University of Wisconsin 609,073.23 (Current and Accumulated Grants) Reserves ----------------------------1,113,244.76 Capital Accounts A.
