with more hours of credit and
those who carry more hours

"The least that could be
done under the new system
would be to rotate through the
alphabet to determine who
registers first," Rogge said.
He suggested that to make
student opinion better known
for or against the change,
each person should be sure t
tell his Council representative
his feelings.
Frenzel added that he would
like to return to the old sys
tem since he feels that it gave
more privilege to the upper
classmen and that they de
serve it. If they plan to use
the new plan, he added, it
could certainly be improved
Arbitrary Method

"This plan will be all

Ken Price, senior in Teach

Allen Krizelman, sopho

said he thought that the new

than the old one of regis

Three Classes
Objection to alphabetical
registration seemed to fall
into three classes: it is un
fair to seniors who must
have certain courses 'to
graduate, it "pulls rank" on
upperclassmen, and it is for
the benefit of the faculty
and the administration, not
the students.

"By the time one is a senior

said Panhellenic president
Lynne Meyers. "I think It

"It might work out okay,

Bob Grimmit. "It itemed

"Registration by hours is
a better system," said soph
omore in Teachers Dick
Whitcomb. "It gives people

Seniors appeared to be of
one accord.
Jim Harpstreith, Arts and
Science senior, stated, "It

that the University is being

Another senior in Arts

be too fair of an arrange
