Pediatrics Project Grant.—  A grant of $86,700 from the Rosenberg Foundation of San Francisco to the Stanford Medical Center Fund, which will underwrite the establishment of a model community pediatrics program as part of the proposed medical center, has been announced. The child health program, proposed by Dr. Robert H. Alway, head, pediatrics department and acting dean of the Medical School, will keep youngsters with nonacute ills from being hospitalized. Instead, it will offer pediatric care in outpatient clinics, in the offices of private physicians, and in clinics. The joint pediatrics facilities in the combined Palo Alto— Stanford hospital and educational and research facilities in the field of pediatrics and the willingness of pediatricians to construct joint facilities with the Medical School, will contribute to this objective, Dr. Alway said. The program will also coordinate community youth and service organizations such as the Stanford Convalescent Home and the Mid-Peninsula
