The machinery started to roll
In force Tuesday to get the Stu
dent Directories out to University
Sally Flannigan. the University
Builders Association's chairman
of the Student Directory, said that
tht tentative release date will be
the week before Thanksgiving.
Miss Flannigan pointed out that
work will progress more rapidly
when the freshman girls begin
to work after Activities Mart.
The cost of the book will be 85
cents and will include the names,
addresses and telephone numbers
of all students, faculty members
and graduate students of the Uni
versity. The Directory will also

High Temp
To Reach 86
If University students felt as
if they would get a heat rash Tues
day, they will probably be melting
by this after
noon when the
high tempera
ture reaches
86. Tuesday's
biph was 79.
Little or no
wind will blow
fresh breezes
through the air
to cool things

one remember
a year ago
when the temperature dipped to a
near freezing 36?
Temperatures this week will av
erage 3 to 8 degrees above normal.
Normal high is around 73 with
normal low around 41.

been released on the committee's
progress, however.
The Iowa State Daily stated In
its Thursday issue that ''figures

Enrollment at the University to
tals 8,164 students, a drop of 261
students from a year ago, accord
ing to Floyd Hoover, registrar.
Chancellor Clifford Hardin said
that two factors are reflecting in
the decline: first, a tightening of
scholastic standards at the Univer
sity and second, the 33 per cent
tuition increased passed last April
by the legislature which became ef
fective this fall.
"The 1957 enrollment," Chancel
lor Hardin said, "is somewhat less
than pre-registration estimates but
it is understandable in view of our
tighter scholastic policy and the tu
ition increase."
Looking back into past Daily Ne
braskans, an April 24, 1957 editor
ial speculated on the tuition raise
and its effect on enrollment which
was Dassed the day before. "And
here are the results which, we be
lieve, will follow this action: 1)
Fewer out of state students will
be coming to the University be
cause of the tuition increase (2)
Facilities for a big increase in en-
rollment will not be necessary
as before (3) Possibly more money
will be available for the fewer
teachers needed to handle the
"boom" enrollment (4) The Uni
versity, which might have gained
reputation as a fine institution of
higher education a top-notch
school, will suffer from cuts in in

blocked by University students'
"Results of th survey, directed
by Csanyi, will be released dur
ing October and will -then be sub
ject to city council action," the
paper stated.
Apparently most of the Iowa
State students have no place to
park except on city streets as the
average garage rate is three dol
lars per month.
The Ames Bus Company is at
tempting to relieve some of Uni
versity parking burden by instigat
ing a new schedule which went
into effect Tuesday.
"Student wives who are issued
parking permits for "work purposes
also add to the traffic and park
ing problem," the paper reported.
Professor Csanyi stated that
short course sessions at the Uni
versity sometimes cause as many
as 2500 additional cars to be on the
Ames campus at the same time
which adds considerably to the ex-
' isting problem
a chance to compete with the
wealthy and the learned will be
cut off from this opportunity."
In Jan. of 1957 the enrollment
jumped seven per cent from the
past year. 8,180 students were en
rolled compared with 7,639 stu
dents the year before or an increase
of 541 students. Sept., 1957 the Uni
versity had 8,387 regular students
registered or an increase of 535
students over the same period of
Sept., 1956.
That was the fourth successive
year that the enrollment had shown
a substantial gain in regular stu
dents. That increase does not in
clude 2,050 students who are en
rolled in the University's evening
and off campus courses.
The enrollment record of 10,153
students was set immediately aft
er World War II, a sight which
th University wquld like to see
again in the near future.
Chancellor Hardin was quoted
in Sept. 1956, "The interest in
furthering their education will add
to the so-called flood tide of stu
dents which is expected to sky
rocket the University's enrollment
in the '60's."
Sept., 1955 saw 6,531 students en
rolled at Nebraska compared with
5,836 at the same time the year
What do all these facts add up
to? A future increase of students
at the University? So far we have
seen one semester of decreased en
rollment. The Chancellor explained that
170 students were dropped from the
University's rolls for scholastic
reasons at the close of the last se
mester than were dropped the pre
vious year. This, he said, amount
ed to a cut in enrollment and re
sulted from the establishment of
a higher minimum grade require
ment. The old minimum level was
a weighted grade average of a
three. The new' minimum is 3.5
or a grade of about 67 on the
scale of 100. '
In addition, Chancellor Hardin
said, the University this year
tightened up on acceptance of stu
dents transferring from other in
stitutions. Only those in good schol
astic standing were allowed to en
roll. This resulted in keeping out
at least 150 who :n other years
would have been allowed to enter
on a probationary status.
"We have three reasons for be
lieving that the tuition increase
has affected the University's en
rollment," he said.
"First, the number of entering
freshmen appears to be fewer than
a year ago but the scholastic qual
ity of the new class is appreciably
higher. This may indicate that the
tuition increase discouraged stu
dents uncertain of their ability to
do college work."
He said that the University's
New Lab
University dignitaries had much
praise for Nebraska's agricultural
development at the dedication of
the new office and laboratory at
the North Platte Agricultural Ex
periment Station Monday.
Dean of the University Agricul
ture College, W. V. Lambert,
speaking to an audience at the
annual Fall Livestock Feeders
Day at the station, stated that the
station had contributed much dur
ing its 53 years toward improve
ment of agriculture in Nebraska.
Lambert stated that research
becomes more complex with each
additional scientific discovery.
The president of the University
Board of Regents, Dr. B. N. Green
berg, said the building represents
a vote of confidence in the future
because it was built with funds
from the Legislature-approved 10-
year building fund for the Univer
sity and the National Guard.
Chancellor Clifford Hardin dedi
cated the new addition to the ex
pertinent station. Hardin said that
much hard work had gone into
the research which had been ac
complished at North Platte.
Hardin said the dedication had
long since been accomplished by
determined men realizing the im
portance cf research in the field
of agriculture and more specific
ally crop development.
Carl Deitemeyer, one of the
day's principal speakers, cited
Nebraska as a once "sleeping
giant" which is now on the march.
"Our farmers and ranchers are
working more than ' two million
acres of irrigated land and the
end is nowhere in sight," he com
mented. "The number of irrigated
acres in the state has increased
by more than 85 per cent during
the last five years."
YMCA Meeting
There will be a YMCA meet
ing in the Student Union torn ar
row at 4:00 p.m., according to
George Mover, president.
At the last meeting Jim Rim m
was elected vice-president of the
English 3 course, reserved for en-1
tering freshmen who qualify as
superior students, is a good barom
eter for measuring the scholastic
quality of the incoming class.
This year 34 per cent of the
entering Freshmen qualified for
English 3 compared with 20 per
cent last year, and 21 per cent
in 1955. Meanwhile, only 17 per
cent of this year's freshman class
was found deficient and in need
of remedial English as compared
with 21 per cent last year, and
29 per cent in 1955.
"Second," Chancellor Hardin
continued, "the statistical pattern
set by returning students is slight
ly different from what it has been
in other years.
"Preliminary study of this year's
pattern indicates that a slightly
smaller percentage of each class
returned than usually comes back.
If the returning student pattern
had followed the customary trend,
the University would have about
200 more students than are now
"Third, the University's enroll
ment experience this fall deviates
from the ' general experience of
schools whose tuition charges re

Back In '49:
Sukms Created Issue
Faculty salaries were creating
an issue in 1949. It was reported
in the Feb. 17 issue of the Daily
Nebraskan that a New York execu
tive shamed the University for low
incomes of professors. Mr. Eugene
Rob, assistant general manager of
Hearst newspaper, spoke before
300 people at an alufnni banquet,
to help celebrate the 80th anni
versary of the University.
"The least that most universities
have been able to do is, to set up
a state-suppoi ted retirement plan
for their faculty members.". Robb
"I was shocked when I inquired
about this in New York before I
tion have had enrollment gains."
The Chancellor said preliminary
figures show enrollment in the
Graduate college is slightly higher
than a year ago. This, he said, is
a further indication of the strength
of the institution's scholastic pro
gram: In an interview James Pittenger,
assistant to the Chancellor, ex
pressed his views on the decrease
with the following:
"One of the factors of the de
crease in enrollment may be from
students not maintaining the nec
essary University average and oth
ers not yet University students
afraid to attempt the challenge of
a college education because of the
grade average.
Asked if the decrease will effect
the expansion program of the Uni
versity, Pittenger replied, "no, the
program will not be affected since
the building levy is a separate fund
supported by the taxpayers of Ne
braska." Could Nebraska increase their
enrollment in the future? was
another question asked of the as
sistant. "A good University has to

that I was shown covered 119 in
stitutions and all except 11 of the

plans for their teachers. Nebraska
had no plan.
"After a lifetime of faithful
service training young people, the
banishment of teachers to an old
age at the pauper 'level smacks
of something pretty alien to Amer
ica." "In 1949 the total United States

Is the spirit of the University
affected in any way by the en
rollment? "Spirited schools are al
ways vital to the development of
an outstanding institution. Spirit
takes in many factors such as
football, basketball, track, glee
clubs, drama and other activities
carried on by the student body.
All of these things affect students
and the whole. University by the
influence of importance students
make through these activities."
How can we encourage students
who rate high scholastically and
others who are athletically inclined
to attend Nebraska was another
question asked of Pittenger. "En
couragement of students to con
tinue their education is a main
factor in getting students to a
school of higher education. Schol
arships help the financial sta'.us
of a student who can't afford col
lege. The Foundation is working
on the problem of out-state stu
dent scholarships.
Instructors at Nebraska do have
an effect on the student body but
not until after a long period of
time. Thus this can not be a factor
in the sudden decrease of students
this semester.
