Increase Due
To Vet Influx
Floyd W. Hoover, director of
registrations and records, an
nounced today that the total en
rollment is expected to reach
7,000 students by the end of reg
istrations on October 3.
Applications from new stu
dents for admission to the uni
versity are - running about 16
per cent ahead of last year, re
ported Hoover. He said that ap
plications received to date as
sure a larger freshman enroll
ment than the 1,461 of Septem
ber, 1952.
"We attribute the increase
largely to the G.I. veterans of
Hoover. While this group does
mat wnnm lour years the total
veteran population will be
around 1,500 students.
In 1948 the university had an
all-time high of 10,250 students.
However, the enrollment fell
nearly 10 per cent each year in
1949, 1,050, and 1951. In 1952
the decline stopped and leveled
off at between 6,800 and 6,900.
The 1949 to 1952 decline during
the Korean War was relatively
small in comparison to the 4,000
total enrollment figures during
the World War II period.
With the majority of the new
Korean veterans coming in as
freshmen, Hoover expects the
total enrollment to remain nearly
the same for the next four or
five years.

'Fly Or Out'
Order Hilled
To See Truell
"College lives" were literally
saved for over 100 Senior
AFROTC students Friday. In a
telegram from Washington Fri
day morning the AFROTC de
partment was instructed to "dis
regard all 'instructions and in
formation previously sent out."
This means that these seniors
who received letters stating "that
if they did not enter the flight
program they would be dis
charged" may now continun in
tne program.
The previous letter sent out
listed the following informa
tion: Budget limitations set by the
Congress of the United States
have reduced the Objective of the
Air Force from 143 wings to
120 wings. The officer require
ment associated with the re
duced force is computed at ap
proximately 30,000 less than that
associated with the 143-wing
structure. Thus since 85 per
cent of the officers of the new
force will be flying personnel,
more flying officers are needed.
"For these reasons," an
nounced Maj. John B. Truell of
the Air Science Department, it
is necessary that those advanced
Air Force ROTC students who
are not medically qualified for
flight training, or who will not
commit themselves to same upon
graduation, will be discharged
from or not accepted to the ad
vanced AFROTC program. This
does not apply to certain se
lected engineers and science
Some persons will receive a
certificate of completion in lieu
of a commission. It is requested
that students repp" to Maj. John
3. tfruelTfoi ftiitfiSr1 details.
Maj. Truell said, "These stu
dents who are physically quali
fied and willing to apply for
flight training will undoubtedly
receive commissions while -those
who don't go into flight traning
may or may not receive commis
sions depending on the need ior
officers in the Air Force pro
gram. However, students would
continue to be deferred and re
main under the same salary con

The Daily Nebraskan is now
Tne Nebraskan.
Previously published fourand
five times a week during th
school year, the University'
newspaper now begins a Tues
day, Wednesday and Friday
publishing schedule.
A three-issue week, according
to standards of the Associated

ify a paper as a daily.
The word "Daily" has there
fore been removed from th
flag and the masthead.
The cut in the publishing
schedule was ordered by tfaa
Committee on Student Publica
tions in an effort to equalize
expenditures of the paper with
the income available from stu
dent tuition and advertising.
At the same time the Com
scneauies should save $3,343
THE DAILY Nebraskan, ac
cording to W, C. Harper, treas
urer of the student activities
fund, lost approximately $6,300
last year $3,500 first semester
and $2,800 second semester. Tha
second semester loss occurred
despite a cut in the publishing
schedule, from five to four is
suse a week, and reductions in
staff salaries and positions. The
economy . measures saved ap
proximately $2,938 for The
Daily Nebraskan.
The $6,800 deficit for lha
1952-53 school year completely
wiped out the student publica
tions fund, accumulated during"
the postwar years when the Uni
versity's enrollment was fre
quently around 10,000 students
and when The Daily Nebraskan
was a tabloid-sized paper.
Since the paper grew to
seven columns in 1950, Tha
