Dr. Franklin P. Hawkes has been appointed director of Fair Education Practices by the Massachusetts State Board of Education and will administer the newly-enacted state law forbidding schools and colleges from practicing discrimination in admitting students because of race, religion, color, creed or national origin. Two other states where a similar law is now in effect are New York and New Jersey.
