being studied in a beef cattle

The researchers plan to
compare methods of prepar

the effect of pelleting rough
ages on palatability and ef

also hope to develop a feed

provide for more control in

War, Sergeant Austin became
a German prisoner of war. He
was captured at the Battle of
Kasserine Pass on Feb. 22,
1943, remaining a prisoner for
almost two years.
An eight-day forced march

most harrowing experience.

one loaf of bread.

10 minutes easily."
"The only way under the
sun to progress," said the
registrar, "is to make
changes. Maybe they won't
be as good as we think they
will be. Then we'll hunt a
new solution."
Each semester, if the new
plan is continued, ti e alpha

the same students will not

No Time Sav de
The alphabetical system
will not save the registrar's
department any time.
"It won't save us five min
utes," Dr. Hoover said.
Seniors who need classes in
order to graduate will receive
special permission, as they
have in the past, to register
for the course.
"It is very rare that a stu
dent is barred from a class
he needs for graduation," Dr.
Hoover pointed out.
Moral Obligation
"I feel we have a moral
obligation to the student. We
accept to provide for him
those courses needed to make
normal progress through the
It has been more than eight
years since a senior had to
spend extra time in school in
order to graduate because he
would not register in a class
he needed, the registrar said.
Mrs. Irma Laase, assistant
registrar, said she felt the
number of special permis
sions granted to students to
enter closed classes would
not be increased under the
new system.
By spreading the registra
tion of each class over sever
al days, the people register
ing the students can see the
classes fill up.
Classes Opened
As they fill up, arrange
ments can be made with pro
fessors to open new sections
or to allow more students in
the closed class.
Under the old system, Mrs.
Laase said, all the seniors for
a particular subject would
show up to pull cards at the
same time. If a class were
closed, the student would be
forced to return again and
again to the registrar's office
to see about special arrange
ments. The classes will not fill
suddenly, but as the registra
tion progresses, fewer special
permissions will have to be
arranged by the student and
more will be arranged by the
I registration office's contact
with the department and
Second semester, Mrs.
Laase said, is a good time to
initiate a new method of en
rolling for classes because,
"there is space enough for
everyone and some to
spare, in the second semes
ter, classes are scheduled on
the basis of the first semes
ter enrollment which is usu
ally higher than second se
mester enrollment.
Rough Registrations
Registration hasn't always
been as smooth as it is now,
Dr. Hoover said.
Shortly after the second
World War, he said, some
3,000 students bulged the ent
ryway to the Temple Build
ing in an attempt to register.
The close quarters caused
some of the coeds to , faint.
Progress was slowed to a
Mrs. Laase said that when
she first began working in
the registrar's office in 1948,
appointment cards .were
handed to the student to de
termine his time of registra
tion. Students jammed to the
registrar's office in order to I
get the cards. The first there 1
were the first served. j

(Continued from Page 1)
And women could nod in
assent at closing remarks
of fashion in general:
"Now my f a c e s parade
before you my triumphs,
my failures. Do think you
know me now? Do you un
derstand me at last, my
critical judges? Especially
you men!
"The next time you feel
tempted to laugh at your
wife's new hat which is
sprouting flowers and veg
etables or growing feathers
and fur, remember that
men at some time in his
tory have worn ribbons,
bows, plumes; they have
carried muffs, worn satin,
ruffles, wigs and perfume
on their lace-trimmed hand
kerchiefs." But men could get their
last laugh' in as the closing
goes on "Do you under
stand me, you women who
state brightly at bridge
parties that you wouldn't
be caught in an out-moded
style and look with distaste
upon last year's fashions
while wearing a dress which
was first fashionable 50
years ago . . ."
Fashion Shows Dull
Mrs. Barbara Jackson,
home economics instructor,
and writer, director and
brain of the show, claimed
that she felt most fashion
shows, were too dull. She
likes to try to write them
with life.
Mrs. Jackson assigned
work on the show to mem
bers of a small history of
costume class. Models were
volunteers, all from the
home economics department.
