The National Guard mem bers displayed two signs at the rally. One read "The Eyes of Nebraska are upon you" with the word "Texas" crossed out As the Huskers stepped off the plane, two flying salutes were made by F-86 jets. Even though the jets were flying low, the spirited Hus ker fans drowned out their sound. Signs Several of the home-made signs reflected the feelings of the ardent fans.

Forrest, director of Scholarships and Finan cial Aids. The program, designed for scholastieally outstand ing Nebraska high school graduates who enroll at the University of Nebraska, will be increased this school year to 200 awards Or dou ble the number awarded last year. The program has been a complete success both from the standpoint of the stu dents and the employes, ac cording to Dr. Forrest. The new feature of the program this year is the employment not only within the University organization but also off-campus jobs. Included under the new program are Gold's depart ment store, Miller and Paine, Montgomery Ward, Wadlow's Mortuary, Law lor's and the Journal-Star Printing Company. Dr. Forrest said that 500 applications were received for the 200 positions avail able. "This means that the University must attempt to find more positions through out the University and the city to aid these worthy students." Nine to 20 hours a week is the average employment time for recipients of a "work-scholarship". They are able to earn enough to cover one-half to all of their room and board costs for the year.

Dr. Hoover said that al though no definite figures would be available until the middle of this week he expect ed this year's total enrollment to exceed last years. He added that most of the 2,400 incoming freshmen had pre registered earlier this year. This number compares to the 1,725 total freshmen students enrolled last year. The advantage of having the new students pull their cards Auto Sticker Sales Lag Parking problems are aris ing on the NU campus as the campus police begin issuing parking stickers. Up to today 1,398 stickers have been issued to faculty, students and employees. Last year approximately 7,009 stickers were issued. The campus police began issuing stickers today at 8:00 a.m. With this year's increase in registration expectations are for an increase in stick ers. NU officials report that a total of 3,779 parking spaces are available for student ve hicles this semester, includ ing the newly hard surfaced lot across from the Student Union and a new lot being readied between 16th and 17th on Vine St. which will accom modate 74 cars.

This was the first year that freshman could pull their cards in advance. Section Shortage Dr. Hoover ' said the only problems arising in registra tion were the shortage of sec tions in English, zoology, bot any and biology courses. In connection with this, Prof. James Miller, chairman of the English department, noted the most trouble was for those students m ho had not pulled their cards and were scheduled to take Eng lish B. Dr. Miller said thaUthirty or forty freshmen had already been turned down for English B and must wait until next semester or next year to take it. He pointed out that a good factor of this year's new sys tem was that, "All of the Eng lish cards are taken care of by one man. This makes the process very good." Advisors Praise Looking at the new process from the advisor's viewpoint, James Morrison, assistant professor of journalism, said, in comparison with last year's process, "It is better for the advisors; there is no waiting and registration is way ahead." Morrison also noted that with the new system fewer changes have been made from the pre-registration work sheets. Student comment on the new system was varied be tween ease and confusion. The following freshmen were in terviewed on the difficulties in registration. Dan Coffey from Standard, enrolled in Teachers College and majoring in physical edu cation ,said, "It's okay, but I'm not too crazy about it. It took me two hours to regis ter." "Just fine and just what I ordered," was the comment from Betty King of Lincoln, who is in Business Adminis tration. Mickey Drew of San Mar cos, Tex., enrolled in Teach ers College stated, "It's con fusing. Too many places at one time and a lot different than high school." The final comment came from Orville Shiglcy of Ne braska City. Shigley, a Biz Ad student, said "I lost my worksheets, but the rest was easy and I had no trouble."
