Don Moore, a University stu
dent for only 12 weeks, said
that many incoming freshmen
had been hearing about the
Military Ball and the Mortar
Board Ball, and were disap
pointed not to be able to attend
both of them. Moore said that
he favored 4he suggestion of
fered by many students to have
the ball even though a big
name band would not be play
ing for the occasion.
Jean Cochell said that she
thought it too bad that the tradi
tion of the dance had been broken,
even if it was just for this one
year. When asked what she in
tended to do' the evening that the
ball was to be held she said that
she had no definite plans, but
thought that there would be little
else to do but go to a movie, or
organize an individual party. Any
plan other than the Mortar Board
would "probably be only half as
nice," Miss Cochell added.

cent of those registered were
placed in new or better positions.
The division was able to supply
only about one teacher for every
eight requested, however. Great
est shortage was of elementary
school teachers. Only 182 candi
dates were available to fill 1,954
openings. Requests for college
teachers also greatly exceeded the
