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
the Korean conflict," stated
Hoover. While this group does
not compare with the 1946 in-
flux of veterans, it is expected
that within four 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 vear 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.

Welcome All Students
The University of Nebraska is beginning its eighty-third
academic year, and all of us who are members of the University
family faculty and students hope it will be one of the finest
years in Cornhusker history.
During the past week 1 have had the opportunity to appear
on the New Student program but not until now have I had a
chance to say "Welcome Back" to upperclassmen.
With us this year are a number of Korean veterans and I
want to give a special welcome to these members of our family.
We are proud to have you with us. Our experience with the veter
ans of WorM War II taught us to expect better-than-average per
formance for veterans.
I am sure that all of you, whether new students, veterans, or
returning upperclassmen, understand that the University family
is a unit which recognizes the cquulity of membership in our com
munity. Those of you who are on the campuB for the first time,
I hope, will appreciate that. There are no "second-class" Corn

that, the new chancellor should

The Daily Nebraskan is now

Previously published four,and

The word "Daily" has there

The cut in the publishing
schedule was ordered by the
Committee on Student Publica

expenditures of the paper with
the income available from stu
dent tuition and advertising.
At the same time the Com

and eliminated two paid posi

The new publishing and salary

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. The
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 $6,300 deficit for the
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, The
Daily Nebraskan has been un
able to balance its expenditures
with its income.
licome for the paper consists
of SI from each student se
mester (paid from tuition) and
of revenue from advertising.
Major expenditures are for
