tGu For Year
Enrol I men f
At the beginning of school
Monday, enrollment at the
University totaled 6,531 stu
dents, compared with 5,836 at
the same time last year, Dr.
Floyd Hoover, director of reg
istration and records, reported.
Final date for registration
is Oct. 1. Dr. Hoover estimates
that the final tally will show
7,500 students enrolled. This
compares with 7,197 last year.
The enrollment figures to
date show the following break
down: regular students, 6,203;
graduates, 272; Teachers Col
lege advanced professional de
gree candidates, SS.
Dr. Hoover said the figures
do not include enrollment at
the College of Medicine and
School of Nursing at Omaha,
which will add approximately
500 to the total.
Dr. Wesley Poe, director ef
Junior Division and Counseling
Service, said 1,820 new stu
dents registered compared with
1,710 last year at this time.
He estimated that the 1955 to
tal will reach 2,000 compared
with last year's figure of 1,798.
Love Library will be open to stu
dents and faculty Sundays from 2
to 9:30 p.m. starting with the fall
semester,- Bernard Kreissman, di
rector of library publicity, an
An increase in the Library's
budget has made this additional
libarary service possible, Kreiss
man said. It will cost approximate
ly $8,000 a year to keep the li
brary open Sundays, he added.
Keeping Love Library open Sun
days was one of Chancellor Har
din's main points before the leg
islature in asking for an increased
budget, Kreissman said. It is
through the combined efforts of
students, faculty members and the
library that the Sunday opening
of the Library was firially accom
plished, he said.
Sunday library Tiours are the
second major service to be offered
students, since the browsing room
was opened last spring on the
second floor off the Humanities
Reading Room. " " '
The library has also opened a
listening room and a record col
lection on the third floor, Kreiss
man said. This is another addi
tion to such services as the free
study lounge on the first floor,
the bibliography center, seminar
rooms and facilities for graduate
students, he said.
The University library was one
of the few large college libraries
which did not offer facilities to
students and faculty on Sundays,
Kreisman said. "It is something
we have wented for years." ,

The plane, scheduled to arrive
at 2:10, was right on time. The
Hawaiians stepped off the plane
into the midst of Hula girls and
Hawaiian music. The gr'dders
were presented with large ears of
field corn with red N's attached.
The team was served Royal Ha

"This welcome was to show,
in a small way, our appreciation

over there," Christensen said.

John Gourlay, editor of the 1950
